Being manipulative is generally considered a toxic quality for someone to have. The mere mention of the word often brings back memories of ex-partners, colleagues who sabotaged your success, and cold-hearted politicians who repeatedly hinder society.

However, not all forms of manipulation are so insidious. While it is a dangerous talent, its influence can be used for both good and evil. The three most manipulative zodiac signs are definitely capable of both.

Let’s be realistic – we as human beings manipulate each other every day. Think about it, you’re kind of manipulating your friends by convincing everyone to go to the expensive, trendy restaurant you love on Saturday nights. You’re also being manipulative by persuading your teacher to give you a 10 – instead of a 9 – on your final grade when you know you missed class seven times. You’re even being a little manipulative when you bring flowers and chocolates after a fight (that you started).

Some people are simply more persuasive than others. And Gemini, Cancer, and Scorpio are the zodiac signs most inclined to the art of manipulation, with Pisces and Leo as honorable mentions. More evolved individuals with these signs will use their powers of persuasion to help the needy, to fight for what they believe in, to enlighten and uplift those they encounter. On the other hand, they can also use their talents to do terrible and unspeakable things. Either way, their abilities are something to be reckoned with:

Gemini: the charming sorcerer

You’ve heard the horror stories about the two-faced wizard who is a Gemini, and we’re here to tell you that they’re true (to some extent). They contain a multitude of faces and will use whichever face best suits their environment. Adaptable by nature, they can easily blend into any kind of community, becoming someone the group will trust. They also have a dangerous way with words, weaving beautiful statements that may or may not be true. You will believe them! These Geminis can sell hot tea on a scorching summer afternoon in the middle of the desert.

At the core of a Gemini’s intentions is the desire to make things interesting. Their manipulations are usually more ironic than genuinely dangerous (unless they intend them to be). They have a fierce need to leave their mark on the world, even if it’s not necessarily the mark they should leave. They simply want the chance to live every life that exists to be lived, to meet people who are completely different from them.

Cancer: the sulking boyfriend

So, is it true? Are Cancers manipulative? This zodiac sign draws its power from its deep and unknown well of emotions. These waters are not always calm; they can be stormy, thunderous, and overwhelming. And their inherent knowledge of the human spectrum of emotions is what makes them capable of manipulation.

Since they rarely are direct in communicating their intentions, Cancers can resort to moods and sulking until their unhappiness is clarified. Symbolized by the crab, their hard outer shell may make them distrustful of most people while also being lie detectors, which can make manipulation the easiest way out of conflict. This dichotomy of wanting love but also doubting anyone who tries to love them often causes them a lot of stress.

In reality, a Cancer just wants to cling to their loved ones as closely as possible. They have a lot of love to give, perhaps the greatest love of any other zodiac sign, and they are very eager to give it. In fact, it is not possible for a Cancer to completely let go of someone. They will think of you years after you’ve stopped talking, wondering how they can love you from afar.

Scorpio: the sneaky strategist

The scorpion aptly symbolizes the most manipulative sign in the entire zodiac. They are a sneaky creature, whose unexpected sting carries a deadly punch. This is the power that a Scorpio is capable of. They have an internal sense of ambition that they hold close to their chest, spending a lot of time examining their surroundings with a hidden agenda. Capable of sensing your weaknesses, they can tell you exactly what you want to hear and memorize everything you tell them in return, just in case that information becomes useful later on.

What makes them so powerful is that Scorpios can see perfectly in the dark. They pick up on important details that people often fear to look for. This ability allows them to easily navigate around others. But behind their cunning ways is not just an attempt to gain control, but also to protect their own interests and the interests of those they love. If you have a Scorpio by your side, you are very lucky. If you’re on their bad side… well, you better start making amends.
