Which Zodiac Signs Are The Most Honest?

Is it possible that some people are born with a better truth-telling tongue? Of course, honesty should be required from everyone, but let's face it — we all have that one friend we can trust to tell it like it is. According to expert astrologists at Astrology Club, the twelve zodiac signs represent twelve different archetypes that function as the perceived reality through which we experience life. Essentially each sign acts as a character representation of the various themes in human nature. Justice, death, rebirth, communication, love, and wealth are just a few of the motifs we see played out in the astrology calendar and journey through life.

It makes sense then that the ideas of truth, honesty, and frankness are a personified energy we see embodied in the zodiac. Simply put, there are a few signs we can always rely on to keep it real. These are the signs blessed with the gift of honesty.

The fire signs

Just about all the fire signs have a knack for telling the truth. Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius have a fearlessness about them that pushes through obstacles with a fiery presence. Honesty is their middle name, and they persist with an air of clarity, vitality, and truth.

Known for their brutal honesty, Sagittarius ranks at the top of all signs for truthfulness. Depicted as a centaur archer, Sagittarians have an endless thirst for knowledge and therefore have a built-in truth detector (via Astrology). Their passion for adventure is fueled by cutting through lies and deception. Try manipulating a Sag, and they will quickly tell you about yourself with no shame. Similarly, Aries has a spit-fire tongue, but theirs is more childlike, like the little cousin telling all the family business. As the zodiac's first sign, Aries represents youthful boldness and impulsivity (via Astrostyle). They won't think twice before telling you their inner thoughts, then quickly move on to their next adventure. Leos are ruled by the Sun and therefore have an energy that wants to shine light with their presence (via Costar Astrology). Their honesty is connected to creativity and self-expression.

The earth signs

Raise your hand if you've been personally attacked by a Virgo. These beloved obsessive-controlling queens have no problem ripping you to shreds with their keen eye. In fact, if they don't say what's on their mind, it will tear them up inside. Virgos see everything and must vocalize their perspective at all costs because how else can they help? Virgo is ruled by Mercury, the planet of the mind and intellect. There is no pausing a Virgo mind, and you will surely hear about the finer details they spent the entire night thinking about (via Astrograph). It's all backed with good intentions, however, as Virgos need to nurture, help, and perfect.

Capricorn and Taurus are the other earth signs you can always rely on for grounded integrity. Capricorn, represented by the goat, constantly climbs to the top for success (via Café Astrology). They're incredibly disciplined and responsible and are the perfect person to go to for advice about business, work, and even relationships. Similarly, Taurus' are extremely rooted and down-to-earth. They are often misunderstood as materialistic but are actually very dependable and loyal. Like Capricorn, these are great people to get advice from. Their stubbornness can be a positive when you need someone to bring you back down to earth. The earth signs always deliver in grounding you back to center.
