I’m an astrology expert – these are the most manipulative celebrities
The most successful people in the world are perhaps known for their diverse skills – and among them is the ability to bend others to their will.
But according to one astrologer, that deceit and ambition can be influenced by the stars.
Nicolas Aujula, a past astrologer and therapist from London, told FEMAIL that celebrities like Kylie Jenner, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Holly Willoughby top the list.
This is because Leos, Scorpios, Aquarians and Taurus are the most manipulative signs of the zodiac.
According to the astrologer – who previously made headlines claiming to have predicted Covid-19, Trump’s election loss and Kim Kardashian’s divorce – some placements are more susceptible to success than others purely on the basis of their influence, persuasiveness and group appeal .

And the bright fire sign, Leo, leads the sign.
“Leos are born leaders who naturally take charge and exude confidence that makes people believe what they say,” explains Nicolas.
“They are dominant, charismatic, attention-seeking and often speak like a polished politician, meaning people can easily be influenced by them.”

Elsewhere, Taurus’ “my way or the highway” nature can also bring out manipulative traits.
“Taurus is practical and stubborn,” the astrology expert added.
“Because they are particularly astute when making financial decisions, they are seen by many as ambitious, and so those around them tend to follow their example.”
Famous faces born under the sign include the late Queen Elizabeth II, Gigi Hadid, Cher, and Gal Gadot.
Another star born under the sign is This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby (pictured in February), who has recently faced backlash following the dramatic departure of Phillip Schofield from the ITV programme.

However, it’s a fine line between charming your friends and family into following your lead and adopting controlling tendencies to get your way – like Scorpio, who takes second place on the list.
“Scorpios have a natural magnetism that draws people in,” Nicolas said.
“They are highly emotionally astute and able to read people. They are able to appeal to the vulnerabilities of their peers and often play power games to get people to agree to their terms.”
MOST TO LEAST MANIPULATIVE ZODIAC SIGN – ACCORDING TO NICOLAS
King Charles III, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Katy Perry are among the stars born under this intense angel-clad zodiac.
Kris Jenner – a famous business-savvy reality show powerhouse – is, perhaps unsurprisingly, also a Scorpio.
The cool and aloof Aquarians are also in the top five, with Nicolas stating that some signs are particularly adept at influencing others in specific situations.
For example, he says that the zodiac’s water bearer might know where the coolest underground clubs are, while Cancer makes the best restaurant choices and Libra is best at picking out fashion or beauty products.
Famous Aquarians include Ellen DeGeneres, Oprah Winfrey, and Shakira.
Another star born under the sign is This Morning presenter Holly Willoughby, who has recently faced backlash following the dramatic departure of Phillip Schofield from the ITV programme.
On the other end of the scale, the zodiac signs that are comparative pushovers are apparently Pisces, Virgo, and Gemini — while Libra and Capricorn can be easily swayed by others if they feel they can score points among their peers by following the crowd.
But all is not lost for the signs that have no natural tendency to influence, as Nicolas reveals, you can learn to get your own way by “developing self-confidence that makes people listen with interest to what you say, by using of clear and concise communication and knowing your topic clearly, so that your audience trusts you’.
“The main benefits of being able to get people behind you is that you can make decisions quickly, inspire others, drive change and focus more on outward success,” he added.
Nicolas provided the insight as part of a Bonusetu.com survey of the most influential and acclaimed zodiac signs – which found that Taurus is often the most overlooked in pop culture, while Gemini gets the most critical acclaim.
