Have you ever felt betrayed by someone you deeply trusted only to find out that person shared your best-kept secret with others? Unfortunate situations like this leave you wondering why it is you can't depend on your BFF and why their need to share secrets was more powerful than the bonds of your friendship. That said, you have to be careful about being so transparent about your life, especially to people who aren’t the greatest secret-keepers.
If you have friends at all, then you have at least a friend or two you know you can rely on to keep your private thoughts and deep secrets locked down, and this means you are truly a lucky person. Many people just can’t help but spill when they have a juicy secret. It’s only the rare gems who have it hardwired into them to be discreet. If you’re curious as to what makes some people so talented at keeping secrets while others are notorious for ruining surprises, you may be interested to know that the answers could lie in their zodiac signs. Read on to learn which signs safeguard classified information and which signs you should avoid spilling your secrets to.
The 3 Signs You Can Trust With Your Secrets
Scorpio (Oct 22 - Nov 21)
Did you know Scorpios are known for being as silent as the grave when it comes to secrets? When you divulge confidential details of your life and tell them to keep the info to themselves, they will do exactly as you wish. In fact, they are your absolute ride-or-dies. Contemplative, discreet, and mysterious, you are assured that they will never spill your secrets.
Born during the Halloween season, Scorpios are secretive beings in general, making them reliable with your restricted information. Be grateful for your Scorpio friends who will treat your intel with utmost respect and discretion. Indeed, they are excellent at keeping your stories under lock and key until the end of time.
Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)
Another master at keeping secrets is Pisces. Known as a sensitive water sign, Pisceans tend to care deeply about any classified information shared with them. Their lips are sealed, which means you can trust them with your secrets. Known for being intuitive and selfless, Pisceans can be extreme empaths and may know your secrets even before you tell them.
They tend to confess to a therapist or to their journal if they need to shake off someone else’s energy. So, the only thing to be mindful of when spilling your guts to them is that they will feel your pain along with you.
Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)
Leos know the destructive power of gossip, which is why you can count on them to be extremely loyal and trustworthy friends. In fact, they are praised for protecting all secrets, big and small. They feel honored when entrusted with the personal information of other people, especially those close to them. As such, they take the responsibility seriously.
Like Scorpios, Leos aren’t blabbermouths (unless you betray their trust first, then all bets are off). They are actually more invested in their loved ones than they are in themselves. It’s their loving families and friends that keep them inspired. Loyalty, anyone? Take it from Leos who will keep your secrets locked down as long as you remain loyal to them too.
The 3 Signs Most Likely To Spill Your Confidential Stories
Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)
As the philosophers of the zodiac, Sagittarians are more interested in the truth that lurks beneath the facts. They always want to discover the hidden reasons behind people’s beliefs and actions. Known for their storytelling skills, these intense and charming people like to create and exaggerate drama. Though this makes them marvelously entertaining, it also means you should be careful when telling them secrets about yourself.
If it’s something you need to keep private, it’s best to look for a different confidante. The words that roll so beautifully from the mouths of Sagittarians spread like wildfire, and yet they barely even notice that they've kept the rumor mill churning. They rarely spread rumors on purpose. It’s more of a storytelling obsession with Sagittarians. However, that doesn’t make the secret-spilling any less harmful.
Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20)
Geminis love to talk and have a tendency to gossip. This makes them wonderful friends because they are great listeners and communicators. However, while they’re great at bringing life to every party, they should not be entrusted with secrets or surprises. While they are careful with serious details, they tend to spill the tea when it comes to information that is entertaining.
The main reason for this is because they want to please everyone as much as possible. Sometimes they do it on purpose, and other times they can’t help but reveal secret information unintentionally. Geminis tend to forget who they weren't supposed to share your personal stories with. If you mentioned that something was confidential, that word probably sailed in one ear and out the other.
Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22)
Like Pisces and Gemini, Virgos tend to get very invested in other people’s lives and can be extremely selfish. Though they can be withdrawn and reserved, Virgos are helpful people, but only if you’re prepared to be helped their way. Do note that if you go against their plan, Virgos are skilled at broadcasting to anyone who will listen about how you failed to do the logical thing.
Unfortunately, any secrets you shared with your Virgo pals are not secure as they may be included in revelations about your mistakes. That said, it may not be worth the risk to share confidential information with a Virgo.
