Could astrology have something to do with how you lie, whether you’re a gifted liar or the absolute worst liar? Yes, the zodiac signs who make the worst liars are pretty obvious if you consider their personalities. Because the zodiac sign we’re born under can influence many things about us, including our ability to lie and the varying degrees in which we do it.

For some people, lying occasionally is okay, especially If it prevents hurting someone, while others find that even lying for a good reason is a tricky road and can lead to more trouble.


There’s seems to be a correlation between how much you lie and your ability to do it in a convincing way. For most people, the more you lie, the better you get at it. However, sometimes people are just poor liars, and no matter how often they lie, they never get any better.

They have tells that give them away. Perhaps their eyes shift to one side more than the other, or their voice breaks. But the most successful lying isn’t always spontaneous; in fact, the reason some people are bad liars is because they didn’t do the necessary preparation.


1. CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorns hate to lie, and when they feel compelled to lie, they mess it up with their timing. They take too long to tell their lie. Why does it take them so long?

First, they have to decide to lie, which involves a lot of going back and forth in their mind. Then, they need to come up with something at least a little believable so that by the time the untruth comes out of their mouth, it's obvious to everyone they're lying.

2. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries has the opposite problem of Capricorn — they respond too quickly and don't give much thought to what they're going to say so it comes out confusing or as a harsh truth. Aries don't have a lot of impulse control, so if they feel the need to say something honest, even if that bit of truth can cause them a lot of trouble, it'll be hard for them to stop it.


When they do lie, they haven't thought it through, and it just makes no sense.

3. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces feel awful when they lie and their emotions show all over their face. Pisces are very expressive, which is a wonderful quality to have when they're communicating honestly, but it's a huge red flag when they're attempting to lie through their teeth.

Their words are telling one story and their face is telling a contradictory one with its expressions. Plus, the lie will weigh on Pisces until they come clean and tell the truth anyway. They have no poker face whatsoever.

4. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You might think Virgos would be at least okay at lying because they think their story through, do the needed research, and even try to get themselves to believe it. What gives them away is their tone, which is either monotone or really erratic.

Virgos want to be in control of their lying, but they either are too controlled or completely lacking in any control at all.

5. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leos are a very straightforward sign and are comfortable with telling the truth, so when they try to lie, it not only feels forced and strange, it comes off as false. Then if the person they're talking to asks any kind of probing questions, Leos are completely thrown, and they can't keep their words and details straight.


Did they just say they had the flu? They meant a cold. Leo keeps digging themselves deeper into a hole as their lies get worse.
