There’s no such thing as a natural liar, but some people find it easier than others.
Whether it’s because they’re so charming they’re capable of getting over other people’s defenses, because they do it so naturally, it’s impossible not to believe them, or because they’re so good at detecting a lie they can easily apply the same principles to themselves, but the truth is that, when it comes to lying, it’s hard to beat these zodiac signs.
It’s no surprise to see Gemini on this list. After all, their mutable personality and unmatched ability to adapt are what defines this zodiac sign.
While they’re not the compulsive liars, some people paint them as they do tend to bend the truth to their benefit, though they don’t do it nearly as much as others would have you believe.
What usually happens is that Gemini’s aversion towards drama pushes them to lie to keep the peace and ensure everyone gets along. They have no problem being truthful in their day-to-day life, but they’re not afraid of lying and pretending if it means avoiding a problematic situation.
While they’re not known as liars, Cancers tend to be very good at it. So good, in fact, their lack of reputation as liars only shows how talented they are at it.
Rather than lying outright, Cancers tend to omit details and let people reach their own conclusions, which gives Cancers the ability to deny their involvement if their lies of omission put them in hot waters.
They also tend to exaggerate a lot, though they usually don’t realize they’re doing it, and it’s precisely that fact what makes their lies so believable.
Leos lie a lot when it comes to their ego; they usually don’t do it to mess with others, but they’re not afraid of lying left and right to save face.
Leos have a reputation for being honest and straightforward, and that’s usually true, but they value their egos above the honesty, and they’re perfectly capable of using manipulation and falsities to ensure they look better than most.
What makes them good liars is that they try not to exaggerate too much. Being caught in a lie is just as damaging to their ego than whatever pushed them to lie in the first place, so they keep their lies discrete and easy to justify.
Libras are represented by the scales, which makes them a very balanced sign. This means they can be pretty honest, but they can also be skillful liars.
For the most part, they try not to lie, choosing honesty and sincerity above all else. However, Libras value their peace and mind above most things, and won’t be afraid to lie if they feel like something threatens their ability to feel at peace.
Like Geminis, Libras tend to lie to avoid confrontations and drama, so at least they do it with relatively good intentions in mind.
Surprising absolutely no one, Scorpios are one of the Zodiac’s best liars. After all, their reputation as chameleons and manipulators isn’t unearned.
Scorpios tend to prefer honesty and will approach most situations with that in mind. However, if they feel like they’re being played or lied to, then all bets are off, and they’ll show the liars how it’s done.
It wouldn’t be fair to say that lying comes naturally to Scorpio, but they’re really good at it. Perhaps that’s the reason why they’re so talented at catching people in a lie.
