5 Zodiacs Who Have Surprising Personalities Behind Closed Doors

Some zodiac signs are more upfront with their personalities than others. With certain star signs, what you see is what you get – they are exactly the same person, no matter who they are around or what situation they’re in. But a few signs carry themselves a little differently – they become a new person behind closed doors or with the people they trust the most. Here are the five zodiacs whose secret personalities may surprise you, and why they hide part of themselves.


As the zodiac sign represented by the twins, it makes sense that there are (at least) two sides to every Gemini. Gemini is also guided by planet Mercury, so this star sign’s personality is quite mercurial and subject to frequent mood swings.

Geminis can be sweet and charming one minute, then cranky and petulant the next. You never know just what you’re going to get with this zodiac sign or what causes their mood to shift so frequently.

Geminis are also social chameleons, so they adjust their personality to match their surroundings. They can be entertaining and charismatic if the situation calls for it, or fade into the background and let others take over if needed. They find a way to make friends and fit in everywhere, whether they are at a rock concert, a charity fundraiser, or a funeral. You have to spend a long time with a Gemini before experiencing all of the many, many sides to their personality.


Cancer is guided by the moon, the celestial body that represents emotions, intuition, and the unconscious. Cancers are very private and, like the moon, keep part of themselves hidden at almost all times. It’s not that they’re sneaky – they just aren’t very trusting, only allowing a select few into their inner worlds.

Represented by the crab, Cancers have a tough outer shell. It can be difficult to get to know them because it takes a while for them to open up. This sensitive water sign is afraid of getting hurt, so they guard their hearts fiercely. It’s an honor if you get to see a Cancer’s true self – it means they feel safe and comfortable around you, and you have made a friend for life.


Libra is represented by the scales, revealing that this zodiac sign is all about balance. Libras strive for fairness and equilibrium in everything they do. This means that their personality is full of surprises, since they are constantly taking everything you think you know about them and proving the opposite.

For example, if you work with a Libra, you may only see their professional side. They are hard-working and resilient employees. But Libras play just as hard as they work. Take your Libra coworker out for happy hour drinks, and you’ll see a new side of them. They might be your most diligent colleague, but they can also be the life of the party. The more you get to know a Libra, the more their personality will surprise you.


As a water sign, Scorpios perfectly exemplify the expression “still waters run deep.” Although they may appear calm and aloof on the surface, their minds are always racing and they notice everything in their surroundings.

Scorpio is ruled by Pluto, the planet of power, transformation, the subconscious, and secrets. Thanks to Pluto’s influence, Scorpios are very secretive. They like being mysterious, and only reveal information about themselves when absolutely necessary.

Scorpio is one of the few zodiac signs with more than one guiding celestial body. Besides Pluto, Scorpio is also ruled (to a lesser extent) by Mars, the planet of war, passion, and aggression. Mars gives Scorpios a fiery spark that the other water signs do not possess. You may only see this side of a Scorpio if you are very close to them.

This zodiac sign only reveals their entire personality when you have their full and complete trust. Since Scorpios crave romantic partnership, this is most likely to happen if you are their significant other. Otherwise, you will have to resort to collecting the breadcrumbs of personal details Scorpios occasionally sprinkle, and keep your eye out for that feisty Mars spark.


Capricorn is an earth sign, and earth signs are known for being practical and reliable. Capricorn is also ruled by Saturn, the planet of structure and authority. This combination reveals that Capricorns are serious, stern, and grounded in their values.

Although this zodiac sign is highly ambitious, hard-working, and capable of great things, they struggle with their emotions. Capricorns experience their feelings profoundly, but they have a hard time understanding and expressing themselves. They often need their water and air sign friends to teach them that vulnerability is beautiful, and it’s okay to share their feelings. It takes Capricorns a long time to become comfortable in their own skin, and their personalities tend to fully blossom in their later years.

You may think that the robotic, serious personality Capricorns project is all there is to them, but if you stick around long enough, you will see the emotional depth lingering beneath the surface
