There is a lot of negative stigma around being innocent these days. Whenever someone calls someone else "innocent" there seems to be an immediate feeling of being offended, as if being innocent is the same as being dumb, incompetent, or gullible.

Likewise, no one wants to be called naive, either. But is it so bad to be called innocent? The opposite of innocent can be anything from shady and underhanded to being hypocritical and a liar.

The most innocent people are the ones who never want to think badly of anyone; they tend to always believe that people are inherently good and kind because that's how they try to be themselves.

They're also the kind of horoscope signs who tend to see the glass as half full and are always looking on the bright side of things.

Of course, there are some people out there who see this kind of innocence as something to take advantage of, which is probably why so many innocent zodiac signs are seen as dumb or too trusting of others. But, being innocent is by no means a bad thing.

What turns it into a negative stigma – besides not wanting to be labeled as someone actually negative when you're really just harmlessly innocent – is that people don't like the thought of being vulnerable. When you constantly try to see the positive in everything, you set yourself up for vulnerability.

You're basically telling others that you trust them to make the right decisions because you believe that everyone is good. Of course, to a lot of us, that can make it seem like you're being blindly optimistic, even about people you don't even know.

How can you trust someone you don't know? Well, that's the whole point of being innocent: you do because you always try to give people the benefit of the doubt.

And when it comes to yourself, being innocent means being honest and letting your guard down; something that can be hard for people to do, especially if they're used to locking away their true feelings until they really get to know someone.

So, keep reading to find out top 5 most innocent and purposeless zodiac signs:

ARIES (March 21 - April 19) - Most Innocent and Purposeless

Aries is the first zodiac sign of astrology, which means she's also the baby. Because she has such a new and innocent way of thinking, she's often labeled as naive or childish. While she can be child-like at times – opting to be bossy and can be cranky when she doesn't get her way – she definitely doesn't let that make her look stupid, according to Your Tango.

Aries' innocence comes from choosing to always be herself, no matter what the situation is. She would rather be honest about the kind of person she is instead of being sneaky, underhanded, or lying to get her way. She knows that her bossy nature can get her what she wants just as much as being sneaky, and she'd rather stick with her innocent way of handling things.

Strengths: courageous, determined, confident, enthusiastic, optimistic, honest, passionate

Weaknesses: impatient, moody, short-tempered, impulsive, aggressive

CANCER (June 21 - July 22) - Most Innocent and Purposeless

Cancer may be the crab of the zodiac – always hiding under her protective shell – but she still has a soft underbelly that describes just how vulnerable and innocent she can be. She won't always show you her vulnerable side, choosing rather use her claws on anyone who gets too close, but anyone who knows Cancer well enough knows that this is just a front.

Cancer is most innocent in love. She's the kind of zodiac sign who would rather be blissfully ignorant in love than have to worry about all the realities that can come with it. For some, this might seem way too hard to do, but Cancer is surprisingly good at it. Call her crazy, but you can't deny that she has this innocent love thing down pat.

Strengths: tenacious, highly imaginative, loyal, emotional, sympathetic, persuasive

Weaknesses: moody, pessimistic, suspicious, manipulative, insecure

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22) - Most Innocent and Purposeless

Virgo is one of those zodiac signs that take things at face value. She always tries to be as honest and upfront as she possibly can because that's just the kind of person she is. She isn't naive by any stretch of the word, but she can still do most things with innocence and honesty.

Virgo is also what could be considered a "good girl". She's not the kind of person to go out of her way to rebel or do things just because she's knows it's bad for her. She might not always be the most innocent sign of astrology, but she certainly tries to be good when she can. Her innocence is most seen in her personality.

Strengths: loyal, analytical, kind, hardworking, practical

Weaknesses: shyness, worry, overly critical of self and others, all work and no play

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19) - Most Innocent and Purposeless

Capricorn is not the most innocent zodiac sign of astrology, but only because she's so honest about it. By that, I mean that Capricorn knows that she won't always get along with everyone and won't always take the high road in life, but at least she's honest about her loss of innocence.

Capricorn can be very unforgiving, especially when she really wants something. But rather than try to play the innocent card and get you on her good side, she'll show you that she's a force to be reckoned with and that she'll do whatever it takes to come out on top.

Strengths: responsible, disciplined, self-control, good managers

Weaknesses: know-it-all, unforgiving, condescending, expecting the worst

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21) - Most Innocent and Purposeless

Sagittarius does most things blindly; just flying by the seat of her pants and moving from one thing to the next. For her, this is the ultimate way to live – not with a bunch of commitments and responsibilities hanging over your head.

Sounds like a nice way to live, but it's really just Sagittarius' way of proving that she's not innocent. This flaky behavior of her doesn't really mean much to Sagittarius, but to everyone else trying to make plans with her and get her to commit to something, it's just annoying to know that she's not always who she says she is.

Strengths: generous, idealistic, great sense of humor

Weaknesses: promises more than can deliver, very impatient, will say anything no matter how undiplomatic
