Be careful, these three zodiac signs will talk about you behind your back

There's nothing wrong with gossiping. If you're having brunch with your besties, or drinking wine on the couch with your aunt, there's a good chance you'll end up talking about someone who's not there - and let's be honest, it's going to be pretty funny.

The best gossip is light-hearted, like the one you yelled at your friend who just got engaged. But for those zodiac signs who talk about you behind your back, this small talk isn't always sweet and innocent.

Talking about others behind their backs tends to be more malicious and mean, and usually involves some form of judgment. According to astrologer Stina Garbis, this habit is natural for certain zodiac signs. Instead of chatting in a fun way, they may gossip about your shortcomings or talk about your mistakes.

Other signs are naturally talkative due to their ruling planet. They love to tell stories, but once they start, they often don't know how to stop, and that's when things get out of hand. Before they know it, they're spilling the beans and saying too much.

Read on below for the three zodiac signs most likely to talk behind your back, according to astrologers.

As a sign ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, Geminis won't feel uncomfortable talking about others behind their backs. “They have the gift of gab,” Garbis said, “so your gossip quickly becomes their gossip.”

If you tell them something interesting, they'll immediately call their mom, text their partner, and notify the entire group chat. Most of the time, they don't want to overshare, but once they hear an interesting tidbit, they can't keep it to themselves.

As an air sign represented by the twins, Gemini can be a bit two-faced. "Even people who seem trustworthy on the surface can change in an instant," Garbis says. Geminis can be hot or cold, so they might be friendly one moment and friendly the next. Just spread your secrets.

You can never be sure if a Gemini is unintentionally talking behind your back, or if they're doing it on purpose to cause drama or damage your reputation. No matter what, they won’t reveal their deepest, darkest secrets to you.

Most Cancers have a small, tight-knit group of friends who will support and protect them at all costs. If you are part of this inner circle, they will support you no matter what. But if you're outside the circle, they think you're the subject of gossip.

According to Gabis, this water sign loves to rock the boat. "They were always looking out the window and talking about their neighbors," she said. "They want to know who's cheating on whom, who's going through a breakup, or who's lost their job." Once they've finished their tea, it's only a matter of time before they run off to tell someone else.

Garbis says Cancer's love of gossip may stem from their moon ruler. Their moods are constantly up and down, so they can easily get caught up in their feelings. They get upset easily, and they also have opinions that they find difficult to keep.

"This sign is ruled by crabs, so that probably means they're generally grumpy," Gabis said. If you offend them, they will complain and vent your frustrations to anyone who will listen.

Virgo (August 23 to September 22)

Chatty Mercury also rules Virgo, and as an analytical earth sign, they prefer in-depth conversations to lighthearted gossip. Instead of sharing juicy news about their friends, they'll discuss all of their drama in more depth.

According to Gabis, Virgos also have a certain way of doing things, so they can easily disapprove of others. If you were going through a career change, a move, or a breakup, they might be able to tell you how you handled it or what they would do differently.

Like Cancer, Virgo also likes to vent like this. They are constantly shocked and frightened by the world around them and cannot believe that anyone can make mistakes. That’s why they are always the gossip leaders in their friend group. They need to talk about others to vent their emotions.
