While some friends can be trusted with all of our deepest secrets, we all have that one friend who can’t help but ruin every surprise party. What makes some people so tightlipped and others less concerned about letting things slip? The answer could be in their zodiac sign. Here’s a look at which signs treat classified information like precious cargo and which you should avoid spilling your guts to at all costs.
3 Signs That Can Keep a Secret
1. Scorpio (Oct 22 - Nov 21)
Scorpios really are the ride-or-dies of the zodiac that you can count on to take your secrets to the grave—and beyond. Introspective, quiet and mysterious a Scorpio will never spill your secrets (unless of course, you spill theirs first!) Born during Halloween season, this fixed water sign makes you cross a literal moat to get to their classified information, and they’ll treat your intel with the same care.
2. Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)
Like Scorpios, Pisces are a sensitive water sign that you can count on to treat your secrets as they’d treat their own—with care and discernment! Known for being selfless, Pisces can lose themselves in service to others, so be mindful when you’re spilling your guts to one of these sweet fish. They can be extreme empaths and have a hard time shaking off someone else’s energy, so they’ll definitely process it by confessing to a journal or therapist. So if you don’t want to weight a Pisces down, keep the tea to yourself.
3. Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)
Leos are extremely loyal and trustworthy friends. Sometimes incorrectly described as self-obsessed, Leos are actually more interested in other people than they are in themselves. It’s their people that keep them alive and motivated and once a Leo has let you into their fold, good luck ever leaving their side! Like Scorpios, Leos won’t do you dirty unless you betray their trust first.
3 Signs That Can't Keep a Secret
1. Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)
As the philosopher of the zodiac, Sagittarians are less concerned with facts and more concerned with the truth. They want to “get to the bottom of it.” These vibrant, intense and charismatic people are known for their storytelling skills and love to exaggerate and amp up the drama. Be wary when telling them something that you need kept confidential because if it’s a good enough story, they can’t help but share it.
2. Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)
Geminis are the class gossip of the zodiac so of course they absolutely can’t keep their mouths shut. Their ruling planet is Mercury—the messenger—and that’s what they want to do...communicate! Though they’re the life of every party, they should not be included in the planning of any big surprise. It’s not that they want to ruin it for everyone, they just like to play by their own rules. Yes, they are careful with information that is serious, but if it’s entertaining then they’re going to spill the tea.
3. Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)
Virgo is also ruled by communication planet Mercury and they absolutely love to dish. Like Pisces, Virgos tend to get very involved in other people’s lives. But while Pisces can often be too selfless, Virgos can be a bit too selfish. If they’re going to help you, you must do it their way. And if you make the mistake of resisting a Virgo’s plan, they are sure to vent about how you handled things incorrectly to anyone who will listen. This includes telling whatever secrets are necessary to get the point across.
