Lying is a tool of manipulation, but they may justify it by claiming it serves a higher purpose or that they have no choice.
Sometimes people make promises they don't intend to keep, or exaggerate the severity of a problem when it's really not that serious.
Scorpio's most deceptive tactic is to make going against them appear like a huge mistake and to demand unconditional commitment.
If you don't comply, you could have to say goodbye to them forever. It's quite similar to bullying and emotional abuse.
Capricorn lowers someone's confidence and manipulates them because they know that when they feel strong and competent, they are better equipped to stand up to Capricorn and say no.
Capricorn may get someone to do what they want by making them seem stupid and in need of direction.
If Leo performs something that benefits them but harms another person, they will frame it such that everyone involved benefits.
Though generally self-assured, Leos may be undone by their inflated sense of self-importance and endanger others around them.
Pisces might give off the impression that they are above responsibility since they are so unique and original.
The fact that anything went wrong or that someone became angry is not their responsibility. Pisces was preoccupied with their own thoughts and activities.
