The 'Tell' That Will Help You Identify Each Zodiac Sign And Their True Motives

Sometimes, it's not as obvious.

Just because you're a Taurus doesn't mean you walk into a china shop and break the shelves. But still, there are things that are tell-tale Taurean traits, at least if we abide by astrology. Just as Virgos aren't necessarily virgins, one can still spot a Virgo in a room. As Sagittarians don't all walk around with a bow and arrow in their hands, they can still be pointed out if you know how to read a "tell."


Ever wonder why that friend of yours is so unbearably judgmental? Or why some people like certain kinds of movies, when others detest them? How about food? Some can't even think of life without bloody red meat, while others are strictly vegan and horribly offended by your choices.

What makes a person hate? What makes a person love? What is it about each of us that makes our choices so different, or so... "us"?

Astrology holds the secret here, as we are influenced by these cosmic forces. If we are born under a certain zodiac sign, we express ourselves in ways that fit with our sign. There are certain things that give us away, however. You might never find an Aries wimping out during an argument, but you may notice others things about this person that give away the fact that they really and truly are an Aries.


So, what are each sign's "tell" that gives them away?

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Red, clothing, hair, cars. They love it. If it's bright and inescapable, Aries is interested. Bright color is the giveaway here, but the reds are the green light for identifying the Aries in the room.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Getting what they want. It's uncanny but Taurus sets their mind on something and they just get it. No matter what it is, it's like Taurus magic. You'll notice this magic because it's flawless every time. You might want to hang around a Taurus; maybe they'll get something for you too.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

The inability to make up their mind. This is the Gemini trait and it never, ever fails. Ask a Gemini a question. Watch how they avoid an actual answer. This is the boilerplate reaction to everything. Gemini cannot communicate and this is their biggest giveaway.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

They cannot forgive. Cancers are kind and thoughtful, but when wronged, they shut the flood gates and give no second chances, ever. They are extremely cold people, and should you love one and wrong one, forget about ever getting them back. This is what they are known for.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

The unending loud mouth. Who's the one making sure everyone's looking at them? Leo. They cannot exist without being the center of attention, so when you walk into that room, the loudest voice is the voice of Leo.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Virgo's tell is in their sarcasm. They have no qualms or filters when it comes to putting a stench into the room. They do not care what you or anyone else thinks of them. Virgo's big "tell" is in their scowling eyes and tight lipped judgement.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

It's hard to spot the tell in Libra, and that is because Libra is the liar of the zodiac. Once you've been screwed over by a Libra, you'll be able to spot that kind of sick behavior anywhere. Conflicting stories — that's the giveaway, every time. They can never get their story straight.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Lack of empathy. Scorpio is interested in only one thing: themselves. And that means if another is hurting, they don't notice. If an animal is in pain, they don't notice. If a baby falls out a window, they don't care. Lack of empathy and total sociopathy.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Endless, ridiculous optimism. Leave it to Sagittarius to be the most hopeful of the signs, much to their own chagrin. Sagittarian naivety is award-winning. If you know someone who is hopelessly in love with someone who ignores them, there's your Sagittarius.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You can tell a Capricorn by their ability to never be home. They work and they play, but they never go home. If it's 4 AM and you're walking the streets of NYC and you run into someone else, they are probably a Capricorn.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

The endless stream of bad choices. Who knows why, but Aquarius is just incapable of making the right decision. The ability to stall and never get to the point is the giveaway. If you run into someone who will blab on for hours without making a point, there's your Aquarius.

PISCES (February 19 - March 10)

The manic weepiness. So much crying. We get it, you're a fish, you dig water. Okay, so that's the way it's going to be then. All water, all the time. Pisces cries because they are sad, happy, sleeping, doing yoga, eating pizza — and everything else.
