If you’re close to a Cancer, you might be surprised that they made this list – but that’s because they’re a lot more complicated than you thought. “Cancers are marked by emotion and can use it to distract or manipulate any situation to their advantage,” explains forensic astrologer Valerie Evans. These hyper-emotional people also love to hold grudges, so if you mess up with a Cancer, don’t be surprised if they try to pull a quick one on you in revenge.
Gemini has two sides, and you never know which one you’re going to get. These quick thinkers “keep everyone guessing,” according to Evans. “A Gemini’s social and listening skills give them the upper hand because they extract more information than the average person and use it to their advantage,” she adds. If you tell a Gemini a secret, it is possible that he will use it against you in the future.

Leo is smart and cunning – they often strategize and use their bravery to make moves. “It takes courage and self-confidence to outsmart an opponent, traits often associated with Leos,” says Evans.
Evans cites confident con artist Frank Abagnale as the perfect example of someone with Leo energy. Leonardo DiCaprio’s film Catch Me If You Can is based on Abagnale, and she calls it “an example of how Leo’s energy helped him get past the FBI for years, staying one step ahead.”
Virgos are incredibly detail-oriented, so they won’t let anything pass them by. Debbie Jian, a spiritual coach, warns that Virgos “expect the worst so they can be ready for anything”. If you give a Virgo anything, whether it’s a birthday card or a contract, they’ll make sure they’re not being tricked. They remember everything you say or give them, and they’re not afraid to use it against you in the future if it helps them.

Libras often become lawyers because they are so good at arguing. “They may trick you with their charm, but their quick thinking methods to win the case,” explains Evans. This devious and cunning sign can sometimes go to extreme lengths to be the center of attention, which often happens in court. If they don’t become lawyers, expect them to be secretly manipulative in their personal lives. If you’re friends with or dating a Libra, be careful, because he can definitely be smarter than those around him.
Scorpios are known for being strong and strategic, which makes them quite astute. “Scorpians easily command what’s someone else’s and take over – they can even improve on it,” says Evans.
Jian calls Scorpios “very smart business people” who “make you feel special and make you feel like you depend on them.” Once you’re dependent on a Scorpio, he’ll put you right where you want him, so be on the lookout.
