6. Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)
Play dumb and appreciate their intellect.
The smart and analytical-minded Virgos are hard to manipulate because they can see through your schemes. So chances are that you can’t trick them into doing something they probably shouldn’t be doing.
The only way to get them to do the things you want them to do is to admit that you are too stupid to do it and need the help of a smart person like them.
Virgos are modest people, but they are aware of their skills, which include hard work, practicality, attention to detail and methodical. So when it comes to their intellect, they like some recognition and may fall for it.
7. Libra (September 23rd– October 22nd)
Compliment them and make them feel beautiful.
Libra doesn’t like confrontations, so asking them directly to be a part of your plan isn’t the best idea.
Libra prizes harmony and are sociable, so partnerships work for them. But to actually get them to do something for you, all you need to do is give them a compliment that makes them feel beautiful. They are gracious in their response to compliments and a nice compliment can make their day. They feel the need to be kind to you, and that’s when you need to use your manipulative powers.
8. Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)
Blackmail is the only thing that works with the master manipulators of the zodiac.
Scorpios have mastered the art of manipulation. They are distrusting, secretive and highly skilled at spotting the weaknesses of their enemy and taking advantage of it. So chances are this zodiac will see through you when you try to manipulate them and if you aren’t careful, they will take you down.
The only thing that works in the case of Scorpio is blackmail. Maybe threaten them that you’ll reveal their secrets if they don’t listen to you. Although brace yourself for dark times ahead because a Scorpio will make you pay dearly.
9. Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)
Ignore them a bit and make them feel the FOMO.
FOMO hits Sagittarius harder than most other signs. All they want is to experience the good and exciting things in life. They hate being left out of an interesting experience. All they want is the feeling that they belong with the cool people.
So if you need a Sagittarius to say yes to whatever you want them to do, ignore them temporarily. They will feel the FOMO real hard.
They are curious and full of energy but also fickle. So playing the manipulation game hot and cold will get them to do exactly what you want.
10. Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)
Get down on your knees and beg.
Capricorn is a sign that likes to hold all the power and be in control. They are also very condescending and believe that they know better than the rest.
What they are genuinely interested in is climbing the social ladder, so they think of themselves before everyone else. But they occasionally like to feel generous towards the “less fortunate” ones around them.
Considering the above characteristics of a Capricorn’s personality, it is no surprise that begging appeals to their patronizing nature. Yes, you won’t earn their respect, but who cares when you got them to do what you wanted.
11. Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)
Tempt them by asking them not to do it.
The oddballs of the zodiac with a rebellious streak– all you need to do to manipulate the Aquarius is tell them that they shouldn’t do something and give them a ton of reasons explaining why.
Aquarians can’t resist the temptation of doing what’s forbidden. They despise being held back, limitations make them feel less independent. Hence the moment you ask an Aquarian to stay away from something, they will go ahead and pursue it at that very instance.
12. Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)
Convince them that it is a charitable act.
Pisces are empathetic and selfless souls. They find peace in helping others, especially the ones who are less fortunate. So if you want to manipulate this zodiac that has a very trusting nature you need to present yourself as the “less fortunate” person and convince them that what you’re asking them to do will benefit a lot of people.
Once they believe that they are acting for the greater good, they will do it at the expense of themselves if need be.
Surely, you can understand where to strike..
