What Each Zodiac Does When They’re Lying To You

Aries: March 21st – April 19th

They will leave the room or suddenly stop answering your texts. They will go MIA, so that they don’t have to be put in the position to lie. They will avoid confrontation completely, because once they get fired up, they can’t calm down.

Taurus: April 20th – May 20th

They repeat themselves over and over again. They never change their story even slightly. Every time they retell it, they use the same exact words, because those are the words they practiced in their head before talking to you.

Gemini: May 21st – June 20th

They look you directly in the eyes and blink less than usual to overcompensate. To make it seem like they have nothing to hide. They try way too hard to convince you that they are telling the truth.

Cancer: June 21st – July 22nd

They won’t look you in the eyes. They will fidget with their jewelry or their sleeves. They will stutter over whatever they are trying to say, because they are clearly nervous.

Leo: July 23rd – August 22nd

They will tell you how crazy you are for worrying about whatever it is that you’re worrying about. They will turn everything into a joke. They will make you feel ridiculous for ever doubting them.

Virgo: August 23rd – September 22nd

They will talk too much. They will give too many details. They planned this lie out in their head thoroughly to make sure that their story added up, which is why they can supposedly remember every single thing that happened that day.

Libra: September 23rd – October 22nd

They will avoid your texts and phone calls. They will switch topics whenever you try to talk about the thing that they have been lying about. They will avoid you as best as they can until you stop questioning them.

Scorpio: October 23rd – November 21st

They will get angry. They will get overly defensive. They will turn the situation around and find a way to blame you instead.

Sagittarius: November 22nd – December 21st

They will erase their text and email history. They will tell you to talk to a friend to verify their story (a friend who they already asked to cover for them). They will have all of their bases covered, so that you never find out what they did.

Capricorn: December 22nd – January 19th

Lucky for you, this sign doesn’t lie. They will tell you the truth, no matter how hard it is for you to hear. And they won’t care whether it hurts you or not.

Aquarius: January 20th – February 18th

They will embellish the truth. They will add extra details that don’t really need to be there in order to make the story seem more believable. It will sound more like they’re reading from a script than that they’re recalling a memory.

Pisces: February 19th – March 20th

They will argue with you. They will get pissed at you for even suggesting that they are a liar. They will bring up things you did years ago in order to justify what they did this week.
