Just like certain people are prone to gossip, certain zodiac signs can’t keep a secret. You know those people. You tell them something in confidence. Next thing you know, everyone’s in on it. Talk about frustrating, to say the least!

So, which zodiac signs are the best at keeping secrets? And which zodiac signs can’t keep a secret to save their life?

We’ve got the nitty gritty on all of this, helping you determine who you can trust and who you might want to not confide in.

Zodiac Signs That CAN Keep A Secret

So, which zodiac signs are the best at keeping secrets? Check out the list below. Who can you trust?

1. Taurus

Taurus Dates: April 20 - May 20

As an Earth sign, Taurus is grounded. Yet, they take their time trusting other people. This is a really good thing for those they trust and make friends with.

Because of this process, you can always depend on a Taurus to keep their mouth shut. They’ll listen and make you feel heard. But they won’t go off blabbing to everyone about what you say.

2. Virgo

Virgo Dates: August 23 - September 22

Beneath the surface, Virgos are kind and sympathetic individuals. They rarely want to create stress in their lives or the lives of those they know.

With their ruling planet Mercury, they are also experts when it comes to communication. This means they know when to seal their lips shut and keep things between friends.

You can definitely trust a Virgo with your deepest and darkest secrets without fear that others will get involved.

3. Leo

Leo Dates: July 23 - August 22

A Leo loathes gossip. They view those that gossip as unethical and straight-up irresponsible. And yes, while a Leo, as their ruling planet the Sun gives way to, loves attention, they don’t want this type of attention. Thus, they are pretty good at keeping secrets under wraps.

4. Scorpio

Scorpio Dates: October 24 - November 21

Scorpios, although passionate, are a Water sign. And Scorpio’s ability to keep a secret comes from the deep strength that arises from this element.

In fact, Scorpios expect others to keep their secrets, so they do the same for others.

Plus, this sign is deeply intuitive—they can easily sense when someone is not telling the truth.

5. Libra

Libra Dates: September 23 - October 23

Okay, so the Libra zodiac sign doesn’t always keep a secret. But they will the majority of the time.

A Libra may assess how serious the situation is and divulge what they may, depending on this scale of reasoning. Ruled by Venus, in truth, a Libra would much rather have harmony than any trouble.

6. Pisces

Pisces Dates: February 19 - March 20

This sensitive Water sign will always keep your secrets, no questions asked. In fact, for any dear friend, a Pisces will keep their secrets close to their heart. This isn’t surprising since Pisces tend to relish in their own selflessness and the rewards of helping others.

These Signs are the WORST at Keeping Secrets

Alright, so who can’t you trust? We’ve got a few!

1. Sagittarius

Sagittarius Dates: November 22 - December 21

Sagittarius zodiac signs are great and loyal friends. But… You can’t count on them not to have a slip-up, especially when talking to others close to them or about something entertaining.

In other words, this is one Fire sign you want to watch out for!

2. Gemini

Gemini Dates: May 21 - June 21

Another social butterfly! But this sign—represented by the Twins—is often stereotyped as two-faced. So you might be a little on edge sharing your secrets with this sign anyway.

In addition, with Mercury as their ruling planet, Gemini can’t keep a secret since they are constantly looking for things to discuss and talk about with others (they love communicating in every sense of the word!).

They also don’t steer away from a little white lie, meaning they get the gossip rolling but might not admit it.

3. Aquarius

Aquarius Dates: January 20 - April 18

The tough part about spilling your secret to an Aquarius is that they might not know it’s particularly secretive. They have a hard time noticing vulnerability, which means they may tell others but without realizing it was said in private and not meant for sharing (oops!).

This humanitarian sign could also spill the beans in a situation where they believe they are doing the right thing.

4. Cancer

Cancer Dates: June 22 - July 22

Sensitive Cancer cares deeply about others. They want to remain loyal and really strive to do so. And this can also be Cancer’s downfall!

Cancer will strive to mediate situations, which may mean telling someone something else another person said. This can actually cause more trouble in some situations.

While there are good intentions behind it, such as bonding and bringing people closer, it can come off as meddlesome.

5. Capricorn

Capricorn Dates: December 22 - January 19

Capricorn is completely aware when they spill a secret. They use secrets to their own advantage in social and career situations. This may mean they confess a secret of yours but tell the other person it’s a secret (you know those people!)

6. Aries

Aries Dates: March 21 - April 19

Aries may simply not believe in secrets. This means they don’t really take them all that seriously.

With its ruling planet Mars, it’s no surprise that Aries won’t necessarily shy away from conflict. Thus, it’s probably best to confide in someone else.

Can You Keep a Secret?

Remember, zodiac signs aren’t white-and-black. If your sign is one of the zodiac signs that can’t keep a secret, as listed above, don’t panic. You can always turn this around, and it doesn’t mean you’re untrustworthy!

Moreso, use the above as a tentative guide regarding to who you should (and shouldn’t) divulge private information.
