It’s my opinion that given the right situation and provocation a person of any sign can lie. That doesn’t mean they will. I’m not entirely convinced that because one has told a lie that they are now a capital L liar. Suppose that you were in a situation where telling the truth would cause someone’s death and telling a lie would spare them. This takes the morality of a lie into an entirely different sphere than the simplistic.
Gemini and Pisces are most often pegged as the signs most likely to lie, Capricorn and Virgo the least. But insert the quantity of free will and anything is possible. Libra might lie to avoid ugliness. Taurus might lie to protect the status quo. In the case of Gemini, they often have so much information that some of it conflicts and the truth becomes relative. Pisces might find telling a lie less painful than telling the truth. Capricorn might lie because it advances their career. Give any sign a hefty toot of cocaine and see how truthful they are. Any sign can be a sociopath and they’re not known for their overwhelming honesty.
I have a Saturn in Libra tip that can minimize the amount of lying you encounter. Respect other people’s boundaries. Take no for answer without pushing. If you allow people to make their own choices without pushing or exerting control, they are more likely to make more respectful choices about how they communicate with you. If you’re encroaching on someone else’s boundaries they are more likely to prevaricate to push you back. Most people don’t lie for entertainment; I find that most people lie as a defense mechanism. Don’t trigger that defensive stance and you’re less likely to encounter lying.
Do you lie? If you said, “no,” are you lying?
