THE BIGGEST LIARS IN THE ZODIAC
Could it be Cancer?
Every sign of the Zodiac has the capacity to tell lies. They may do it for different reasons and in different ways, but they all do it. This is part three of a twelve part series in which we will see how any Sun sign could become the “biggest liar in the Zodiac.”
The Cancer Liar
Cancer people tell their best lies to themselves, and with good reason. The world can be a scary place for emotionally sensitive Cancer folks and a little self-deception is often necessary to get these cautious people in motion. Once they are in motion, of course, Cancers can do great things but, no matter how much they accomplish, they typically harbor secret insecurities that make bald realism a daunting proposition.
For the most part, the little lies Cancer people tell themselves are harmless. They obscure ugly realities and calm irrational fears that they confess to very few. But, occasionally, bigger lies are required to deal with bigger fears and more substantial self-doubt. Then the Cancer person may be forced to lie; not just him or herself, but to everyone, even the people they love, and this can have tragic results.
Former Senator Larry Craig (born July 20, 1945) and evangelical minister Ted Haggard (born June 27, 1956) are two Cancers who paid a high price for the lies they told themselves. Craig, a vociferous crusader against homosexual rights was charged with soliciting sex in an airport men’s room while Haggard, who preached that homosexuality was a sin, was forced to give up his pulpit when it was revealed that he was
spending time with a male lover.
Both of these men invented a lie in order to hide a fact about themselves that they could not face. It didn’t work, of course. Such lies seldom do. Even if you succeed in fooling yourself, there’s always someone else – a friend, a lover or, maybe, a cop – who is going to spill the beans.
