If the astrologer answers a question like that, without making distinctions, it would be a resonance or a deception, or a dangerous discipline to adapt people to the characteristics of their sign.
The truth is more sophisticated than that, that is, Scorpio is the liar and Aries is the most direct. But, of course, astrology can provide us with important tools for understanding an individual’s propensity to “embellish”, “manipulate”, “edit” reality. And that, of course, through the characteristics of its chart.
The ultimate goal of this article will be to create a kind of evaluation “grid” for ourselves to see who may be more inclined to “lie” depending on its theme.
Let’s start by saying that more than the sign of a person’s propensity to lie is highlighted by his Mercury, the planet which is in the theme that governs communication functions, and, in our opinion, even by his Mars, or the planet that explains that people tend to move around the world to get what they want.
The ascendant also has its effect. Certainly, then, crossing the information we have on a person’s sign, with that we have on their ascendant, Mercury and its Mars give us a good starting point for understanding the propensity to lie of the person we are examining.
Keep in mind that the more relevant factors (Sun, Ascendant, Mercury, and Mars) a person has in the signs “more liars” or “more inclined to a personal vision of reality”, – the more this individual will be attempted to provide “distorted” versions of the facts.
So let’s take a look at the individual signs, making it clear that we are not talking about the people in this sign, but the general characteristics of this archetype, which will impact a person depending on the number of elements mentioned above in the sign.
Discover the zodiac signs that lie the most.
Thus, with the exception of particular moments, (with strong plutonic influences for example), people who have many planets (or ascending) in this sign do not feel the need to modify reality because they are ready to support their vision and their choices.
He may lie if the lie is used to defend or protect someone, but they tend to have a hard time remembering it and in his haste to speak he is likely to be discovered. Basically: lying requires more energy for Aries than the cost of facing the other and saying, “Yes, that’s how it is, so what?”. And Aries, therefore, knows that he has less desire to lie.
On the contrary, at the end of the day, direct confrontation amuses him so much: why lie then? But beware of the Aries of the 70s which have an element of additional complexity.

This sign does not particularly tend to lie. They do not want to complicate their lives, do not like elaborate complex plans and have a pragmatic taste for things. They are not afraid to fight if they have to, and they do it with patience and dedication, without feeling, therefore, a particular need to find shortcuts.
They can use alterations of reality mainly because of mental laziness, or to slow down the changes they don’t want to face, but in general, it’s a reliable sign. Generally, a Taurus will do what it says.

It is considered a lying sign par excellence, but I do not share this vision. Gemini knows how to see the multifaceted surface of situations and, therefore, they know perfectly well that the truth is not monolithic, it is not always easy to draw a line between the true and the false, and between the good and the wrong.
This is why when they speak in a more relaxed manner, Geminis are not going to lie. They just know that the truth is in constant motion.
Gemini is the gentleman of the gray zones because he knows that the weather changes everything, and then his motto in this area could be “And if we lie, it is a failure that sooner or later the truth becomes reality”. However, if I have to vote, of course, he will rank among the most prone to lie.
Lying level: 3.5/5
This sign is a mystery in the sense that he is not necessarily a liar, but he experiences situations so deeply emotionally that he ends up recalling them and telling them based on his personal “biased” experience. The reality of Cancer can be very different from how others see it.
If anything, we could say that Cancer is more prone to manipulation than lying in the strict sense: to calm down and feel safe by trying to control the behavior of others and get that control to manipulate them, sometimes without even realizing it fully, also taking into account the modification of the contours of events.
In these two ways, we can say that Cancer is a little “inclined to represent reality in a personal way.”
Lying level: 3.5/5
Leo is not a sign of a liar, if anything, they tend to “embellish” or “exaggerate” reality. The kind of lie which is more inclined, rather than direct, to strike the others, it is the moment to give it luster, but often in its spirit what for some are “alterations” for them are nothing other than objective reality.
Leo magnifies his work, his achievements, the challenges he has faced, the comments that others have made about them. But he is not a professional liar, because, like all signs of fire, he is too impulsive to plan elaborate handling plans.
Unlike the case of Leos heavy narcissists: these subjects who tend to lie do so to create a reality that is consistent with their grandiose visions, or to ensure that others are put to their service and offer them what they want. want. But we are talking about general cases of Leo.

Indeed, one could say that sometimes Virgo is too harsh in demanding rigor and clarity in relationships, a rigor which is not always compatible with the fragile nature of human beings, less perfect than Virgo does not want to accept.
If you catch a lie from a Virgo, you will find that they basically did it for some sort of “discretion” or adherence to external social expectations. Alternatively, Virgo can lie to cover up his own fault (because he tolerates his mistakes even less than those of others), but it is unlikely for them to resort to lies to deceive or manipulate.

I could not define a lying Libra, rather indecisive or afraid to give life to interpersonal conflicts. If they have to lie, they will do it for two main reasons: not to displease someone or to delay as much as possible a clear position on something they cannot decide. It is rare for a Libra to lie to get something at the expense of others.
It is very difficult for Libra to say frankly something unpleasant, so they tend to slip into a “social lie” aimed at maintaining a quiet life rather than facing a potential confrontation.
Some Aries or Capricorn would call it “hypocrisy”, but in reality, it is more accurate to call it a strong desire – sometimes compulsive – to maintain a balanced situation around them and avoid conflict. Even then, beware of the Libra of the ’70s.
Lying level: 3/5
Whether it is a form of self-protection, a desire to influence others or a need to control an environment, they try to “bend reality” to a more favorable version of them.
In short, we can say that Scorpio can be a wonderful and deep mark, and really honest in its feelings, as well as brutally direct sometimes, but it certainly does not feel particularly uncomfortable in lying and especially in omitting. But don’t forget to look at the whole issue and not just the sign!
Lying level: 5/5
This is not a particular sign of a liar, because, like all signs of a fire, it is too immediate and direct to hatch plots and expend energy in manipulating. However, his optimism leads him to think that he will get what he wants without having to draw too complicated plans.
In addition, not having a particular tendency to memorize details, when Sagittarius lies, they risk forgetting the details of the stories they invent and end up ruining it with their hands. They know it and, therefore, after an experience of early childhood/adolescence, they tend to avoid it.
If anything, they could subconsciously lie to an excess of confidence in what they are told, which they “sell” without too much critical analysis, or because of an excess of superficiality.
Of course, but if you are dealing with a Sagittarius with a lot of personal planets in Scorpio or born between 1995 and 2008, a tendency to cover up could appear more easily. In general, however, they tend to be a positive and impulsive sign that does not particularly like lies.
Lying level: 2/5
What does it mean? That a Capricorn head of state can lie gently if he thinks it is one of his institutional duties, that a Capricorn father can lie if he deems it necessary to give an educational lesson to his son, that a Capricorn mother can use subterfuges to protect the offspring or family and so on.
Sometimes Capricorn can lie because they feel the need to preserve or improve their public image, but in the DNA of this sign, the lie is not covered. Capricorn is certainly not diplomatic, and if it has comments or criticisms, it would rather tend to be too direct.
In short: Capricorn is basically correct in his relationships and explicit in the communication of his thoughts. But it still depends on the theme.
Lying level: 1.5/5
The end justifies the means: this could be the reason why an Aquarius can use lies. If he firmly believes in the “correctness” of his idea, he is ready to lie to put it forward. It is a rather foreign sign to lie for the sake of convenience.
They do not feel the need to adhere to external expectations or to cover up their behavior not entirely in accordance with “common sense” and because of this hypocrisy is rarely part of the way this sign works.
However, Aquarius tends to intellectualize: he does not feel any particular regret for the decisions he makes and if he has to lie, he will quickly list 5 reasons why “it is right to do so”.
Aquarius is not a sign of manipulation but has a certain “ease” in bending reality to his vision, which is not entirely foreign. In fact, especially if it means greater good. Aquarius would think that lying is not a sin.
Lying level: 3/5
The world of Piece must be understood: they don’t just lie, but it is particularly difficult for them to define what the truth is. Their vision of the world is full of imagination and often the border between desire and reality is not defined for them: they like to believe what they want.
Pisces more than tend to deceive, tend to deceive themselves, or are likely to lie because they tell themselves a reality of their own. Clearly, the whole issue is assessed. It must be said that the Pieces tend to be adaptable and, therefore, often “models” for humans or the contexts around them.
If you meet Pieces in two different environments, you may not recognize him: he could speak and act as if they were two different people. But it is not manipulation, it is only a great skill to align environmental circumstances and the needs of others.
Some Pisces may eventually fall into an unconscious form of manipulation of others linked to attitudes of victimization (but this depends very much on the subject) but rarely lie “mischievously” and premeditated. Certainly not the most rigorous and reliable sign of the zodiac.
