There are many characteristics that can make a sign manipulative. Some signs who are insecure prefer to use emotional manipulation. Other more expressive signs generally opt for verbal manipulation. There are signs that are more manipulative than others simply because of Astrology. Do you want to find out what the most manipulative signs of the zodiac are and how you can be prepared to deal with them? Keep reading.
Beware of Scorpio
Let's remember what a scorpion looks like - it is a small but lethal animal. Scorpios can be perceived as mysterious people, but there is something else they are known for - their great ease when it comes to manipulating.
Since they are so passionate and determined, it's difficult not to do what they want. Even though they know it's not the right thing to do, if they want you to do something for them, they will not hesitate to find a way to make it happen.
They always study their target well to find your weaknesses, and they tend to think of their own personal well-being before that of others. Some try to avoid this selfish nature, but usually their own interests prevail over those of others.
Now let's talk about romantic relationships. Scorpios find it difficult to be expressive and to make small romantic gestures towards their partners. So, although it may not seem like it, this is a sign that manipulates without saying much.
In a relationship, the ideal thing for Scorpio's partner to get them to express their emotions in order to know what they are thinking. It's best to make Scorpio feel confident and not afraid to express their point of view, in order to avoid manipulation.
Libra, an Ace up Their Sleeve
Libra is one of the most upstanding zodiac signs, always concerned about equality and social justice, but don't turn your back to them. If Libra is on this list, it's for a reason. Believe it or not, Libra is one of the most manipulative and conniving signs that exist.
How do they usually behave? It's easy - Libra is always looking for harmony and will always say whatever is necessary to maintain this harmony. The problem with this is that they never are on anyone's side - they are very neutral and impartial. And here comes the danger - Libra is one of the biggest liars and will not be afraid to lie to get what they want at all times. If these lies help them avoid fights, it's worth it. Libras portray themselves the way others want to see them and do not mind pretending.
If a Libra wants you to do something for them, they will always know what to say and how to act to achieve their goal.
Another thing you should take into account is that Libra signs are always concerned about their appearance and social status. In most cases, they are looking to associate with people who can help them boost their personal image. They are always concerned about what others will say about them.
Cancer, Another Manipulator
Believe it or not, Cancer is very manipulative - however, they do so in a different way than other signs. Let's remember that Cancer signs are very emotional and sentimental, so they often end up being victims of their own emotions.
Cancers tend to be volatile - they can go from angry to overflowing with happiness in the space of a few minutes. That's why they always need tolerant and understanding people around them to manipulate them how they want.
Unfortunately, a Cancer sign is almost never satisfied with the attention they receive in a relationship. For this reason, they will always seek to engage in emotional manipulation in order to feel more loved and cared for.
In terms of relationships, this is a complicated sign. They will always be suspicious of their partner. Don't try to lie to them, because they have something that makes them one of the best lie detectors of the zodiac, and if they don't discover the truth the first time, they will use their weapons of manipulation to dig into your feelings and end up finding you out.
They are obsessed with feeling loved, but when someone tries to love them, they hesitate and end up walking away, which is why they sometimes come across as stressed. Cancers try to manipulate to get others to say and do what they want and what they think they need.
Although they have a lot of love to offer, they are always expecting to receive more love than they give. And if the relationship ever ends, they will have a hard time getting over that loss.
Virgo, a Very Controlling Sign
Although Virgo signs are always perceived as cold and distant people, the truth is that they are very sensitive. The moment they feel comfortable, they will begin to express their emotions, unashamed. Although it may not seem like it, one of the things that they hate and that really hurts them is criticism.
On the other hand, Virgo is one of the most intelligent signs of the zodiac, something that they take advantage of to manipulate or convince people. Their craving for perfection combines with their manipulative attitude, so they always plan everything very carefully to make others accept their point of view and always admit that they are right.
In terms of love, Virgo is calm. This peace of mind is goes hand in hand with their constant planning so that everything goes the way they want it to. The first impression that strikes you about Virgo is how comfortable they feel with themselves.
Also, although Virgo is a rather manipulative sign, in a relationship where they have opened up emotionally and the other person knows them, they can be easily manipulated in the same way. This is because once Virgo opens up, they show everything about themselves, from their weaknesses to their strengths.
But if you're in a relationship with a Virgo, you should feel important because it means that for them, you are an unattainable and nearly perfect person. That's because Virgo is looking for someone who can measure up. Their standards are very high. Just be prepared for criticism, because Virgos are not afraid to voice their opinions, but they always do so in the best way.
