Although Virgos have a reputation for being polite and helpful, beneath that surface lies someone who likes to force their will on others.
It's common for them to use subtle hints, threats, or the victim card to achieve what they want.

Pisces are master manipulators because they operate under the radar of expectations.
"If they want something, they won't hesitate to list off all the reasons why they deserve it."
They may utilize "just the proper combination of virtue and evil to make sure that they obtain anything they desire," as Hayes puts it.
They'll put on a show of innocence, but their manipulation won't be very subtle. The ones who know them best will understand.

"With Mercury as their ruler, they are brilliant, intelligent, and can charm with the best of them."
