Manipulation– the word has an uneasy ring to it, doesn’t it? While the idea of using trickery to get what you want sounds tempting, being on the receiving end of it, where you’re being secretly controlled, is absolutely unacceptable! Hence, we definitely don’t recommend using the knowledge of zodiac signs to manipulate a person, because it leads to trouble and unnecessary drama. However, we advise being aware of the loopholes in your personality that others can exploit to manipulate you. Protect yourself from getting played!
Once you know what makes each zodiac sign tick, manipulating them becomes a child’s play. But as we said before, we don’t recommend it at all..
But knowing these zodiac secrets might provide foresight, so you at least understand when someone tries to manipulate you.
How to manipulate each zodiac sign:
1. Aries (March 21st – April 19th)
Give them the credit for being the ideator
The first sign in astrology is always looking for ways to be the number one in everything they do. They are born leaders, determined and ambitious, which means that they want to stay ahead of the game and hate to play catch-up.
If you want to use some of the quintessential Aries energy to meet your personal goals, you better convince them that the idea sprung from their mind first, and give them credit for coming up with such a brilliant idea.
In simple terms, you need to make them believe that they are pulling all the strings. You can’t make an Aries work behind something they don’t think of as their own. But if you can make them believe that the idea was born out of them, they will see it through to fruition.
2. Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)
Tempt them through their senses.
Taurus is more tuned to his earthly senses that all other zodiac signs. Pleasures of the senses are their weakness. So if you learn the art of captivating their five senses, you can successfully manipulate them and get what you want.
It will require some hard work on your part. You need to understand their taste and create an experience that they can’t help appreciating. If you do it right, most of the time, they reward you by giving what you want.
They are also fond of exquisite gifts, so if you are willing to spend some cash, it becomes all the more easy to manipulate them.
3. Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)
Play on their indecisiveness.
Gemini is flighty; they find it very hard to pick a lane. Give a Gemini many options to choose from and they’ll bite off all their nails in nervous tension! You have to take advantage of this weakness in their character, their indecisiveness, to manipulate this zodiac.
It can be a little tricky to get them to choose what’s best for you. So first of all, you need to confuse them by giving them tons of options, and next, you need to portray the best option (the one that benefits you) as the least favourable one!
How will this work? When you downplay a choice but make it sound intriguing and kind of forbidden, Geminis fall into the trap. It appeals to a Gemini’s inborn thirst for adventure.
Geminis can be funny creatures; they are always looking for new experiences and thrill, and rarely settle for what’s best for them. They are a curious lot. So all you need to do is rouse their interest, and you are set.
4. Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)
Get emotional and feel free to let your tears roll down.
When you need to manipulate this highly emotional zodiac, you need to beat them at their own game. You need to be the first one to cry.
You can’t force the Cancer to do what you want, because they have mastered the art of playing the victim and will immediately start getting weepy and moody. They will make you feel guilty and you will have to comfort them. That’s not ideal.
So if you want something, you need to let your tears roll free. Cancers have high emotional sensitivity and when they see a person in distress, they do just about anything to uplift them.
5. Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)
Explain how it will benefit them.
Leos are self-obsessed and the best way to get them to do something is to explain what’s in it for them. They love the limelight and attention. Use their love of admiration to your benefit. Shower them with loads of compliments and stroke their ego.
It’s not that they only want to be admired, Leos are kind-hearted and want to help others out. That being said, if your proposal doesn’t benefit them, they will turn it down. So you need to show them multiple reasons why it’s great if they go ahead with your proposal.
