zodiac signs who are the biggest con artists

I remember the first time I saw the movie Catfish. I wondered how this term became synonymous with con artists, mainly fraudulent online personalities.

It takes a lot of nerve to dupe another person, and one would have to be somewhat conscience-free to take advantage of another in a romantic/sexual/emotional way. People’s lives have been ruined because of the acts of con artists, and if not ruined, irreparably damaged.

A con artist is a person who builds your confidence in them, and then uses that trust to take advantage of you, whether it’s about money, or power, or sex, or simply because they get off on watching you believe their lie.

Think you're being catfished? Check out the video below for signs to watch out for:

It takes a very special kind of monster to be a successful con artist. A real Catfish has to have certain traits that make it possible to hurt others without thought of consequence. Not everyone is cut out for this kind of deceptive play, even if their horoscopes say so.

Conning another human being is one of the cruelest things a person can do to another, and it can establish in the victim a lack of trust that may continue on for many, many years. And as we all know, trust is a very, very hard thing to get back, especially after you’ve been severely burned.

Astrology plays a part in this, and there are certain signs that are, let’s say, more capable of hurting others through lies and deceit. Here are the zodiac signs who are the biggest con artists.

1. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Think Donald Trump. Gemini is a very strong sign for con artists as well as manipulators of speech and emotion. They love to set people up, and in their minds they think they’re being clever — and they are clever. They will think up elaborate schemes to shake you down, and they will either succeed or walk away if they don’t. The blame will always be on you.

The Gemini con artist is the one who blames you for being fool enough to take their bait. It’s a game of power to them, and they can be reckless players, not caring at all what about the damage they create. On their side, however, is the fact that they don’t do it to hurt you, they do it to win. You’re just a casualty that can be ignored.

2. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

They will lie to your face, to your computer screen, on the phone and in writing. They have no qualms whatsoever when it comes to conning you, and they have to ability to let it go on for years, should you want to play along. They relish the game of playing you for all your worth and they have no hesitancy about taking your money and lying to you about why they need it.

Cancer will play the "cancer" card if need be. “I’m dying of cancer, please help me.” What, you think this doesn’t happen? Wake up. There are people out there right now who are willing to say they have terminal diseases that they don’t have just to get your sympathy donation. Those born under the sign of Cancer are just those people.

3. LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Leo is so blinded by their own narcissistic love that they just assume that whatever they do, you’re going to love it. It’s a character flaw in them that lets them think they can get anything they want. Conning you out of money or objects is what they love to do, giggling to themselves all the while. They just think they’re cute, when what they’re truly putting out is an entitlement sense of self that they believe is irresistible.

As one of the zodiac signs who are the biggest con artists, they are unsuccessful, but that doesn’t mean they don’t try. They might even succeed if they weren’t so obvious about trying too hard and overdoing it. They believe so much in their own game that they can’t see the forest for the trees.

4. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Not half as bad as Cancer, Aquarius is pretty darned cutthroat when it comes to taking advantage of your kind nature. As con artists, they go more for the power play of watching you fall for them, with less emphasis on how they can get your money. Money isn’t why they’re there; their con is emotional. They delight in surprising you with the truth, and watching you fall apart is definitely something they can appreciate. The goal of their con is to have you believe in them, and they will crush your belief when they grow bored of toying with you.
