Virgos are some of the most reliable and responsible people, but they also take a lot of heat for being the perfectionists of the bunch.

These earth signs will be real with you no matter what—and this openness is a big part of why they're so genuine. They might be a bit quiet at times, but they never shy away from giving their honest opinions or advice. Of course, it's not always easy to hear the truth, but they're never trying to hurt anyone's feelings.

"They can be overly critical, but it's always done with the best intentions," says Tara Bennet, astrologer and spiritual coach at Mediumchat.

Aquarius never conforms to society's expectations. They are comfortable with being unique, so they don't feel the need to be fake. They'll showcase their full personality, even if you don't like it.

"Aquarius genuinely wants the best for all of humanity and is willing to go out of their way to help for the sake of the greater good," says Rebecca Schmidt, astrologer at Trust the Effing Process.

Humanitarians at heart, these one-of-a-kind folks go hard for the people and things they care about. Overall, they're trustworthy and friendly, so they'll never pull a fast one on you.

We all know Taurus can be more stubborn than most, but they are also some of the most real and loyal people you'll ever meet. "What you see is what you get," says Bennet.

Schmidt describes them as dependable, trustworthy, and generous. "They like the good things in life and are happy to share their hard-earned rewards with their family and loved ones," she says.

These grounded earth signs value honesty above all else: As long as you're real with them, they'll be real to you. They hate any form of deception, so you can always count on them to be genuine. Also, they're not looking to do anything extra, and being fake requires more effort for them than telling it like it is.
