How gullible are you? Do people comment on how naïve and unsuspecting you are? And if you are one of the gullible zodiac signs, could your horoscope be a good indicator that you are most blindly trusting than others? Astrology may hold the answer.

It’s not a bad thing to be open and always hope for the best, but you do need to be sensible about it. Gullible people are known for being easily deceived and cheated. Shady people are able to zero in on these unsuspecting people and take full advantage of them.

Trust isn’t something that should be given without thought. No one enjoys being conned or used. It’s good to have a healthy dose of skepticism as long as it doesn't make you bitter. If you find yourself getting used repeatedly, then you need to learn how to take a step back before you give away your trust to someone who doesn't deserve it.

No one wants to be a fool. Be open and trusting, but also be smart about it. Don’t believe everything that people tell you, even if you desperately want to believe it. It’s okay to ask for backup information, evidence, or proof. And if someone takes advantage of you, don’t make it easy for them to do it again.

1. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Pisces individuals promise themselves that they won't let themselves be taken advantage of yet again, but somehow, they never learn their lesson and often give people the opportunity to manipulate them repeatedly. Pisces are very sensitive (sometimes too sensitive) and they have good instincts... if they'd only listen to their inner voice.

They tend to be idealistic and want to see the best in people which is why they have blind spots. Pisces needs to trust their intuition and to pay attention to subtle body clues. Body language, facial expressions, and tone of voice can reveal a manipulative person's true meaning.

For emotional safety, Pisces needs to be a little less trusting and a little more aware of body language, especially when it contradicts what someone is saying.

2. LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Libras are one of the kindest and most trusting of the zodiac signs, which can be great... or it can be devastating when people take advantage of it. Libras can be a little oblivious to what's going on around them, but at a certain point, they need to get woke.

If they're always being pranked or conned, they need to step back and figure out why. In other words, Libras need to wise up for their own self-care. No one has to make the same mistakes over and over again in order to learn from them. Just because you haven't been cheated or conned, it doesn't mean you can't learn from someone else's experience.

3. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries are the most gullible when they're in love. And they want to believe in that love, even if everyone around them is telling them to be careful. An Aries who is lovestruck will ignore their inner voice warning them that when something is too good to be true, it usually is.

Once an Aries is committed, they'll go full speed ahead, never hitting the pause button, never considering the evidence that everything is not as it seems. Aries aren't great at thinking most things through before they do them, but they're especially bad when it comes to love. It is then that Aries are easily taken in.

4. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

Sagittarius are brilliant, but they tend to be a little naive, especially when it comes to traveling. They expect that people will be friendly and have their best interest at heart, and most of the time that's how it turns out.

However, there are some times when Sagittarius is on a spontaneous trip and they haven't done enough research and they're taken advantage of. They believe when the taxi driver charges them extra for having to drive over a hill or when someone tells them a place is safer than it actually is. Sagittarius need to be fully aware of the circumstances of where they're traveling and not assume everyone is kind.

5. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

There are certain things in life that can make Cancers especially vulnerable to being taken advantage of or conned. When a Cancer has suffered a bad breakup, an intense argument, a major illness, a big move, or the death of a loved one, it can make them susceptible to over-trusting.

If they knew of someone going through one of the major life-stressors, Cancer would want to be there for that person and do things that would make them feel better, so Cancer tends to assume that others are the same, and they let themselves be wide open for someone to use them. If a Cancer is in a highly stressful and emotional situation, they need to surround themselves with people who they already trust and run things by them so they're not deceived.

6. CAPRICORN (December 22- January 19)

You might think that such a practical and down to earth zodiac sign wouldn't be gullible, but you'd be wrong. Capricorns always want to believe the best in people, so they tend to set themselves up to be deceived time and time again. A Capricorn individual doesn't want to believe that someone would use them or pretend to love them just to get something from them.

The good thing is that Capricorns do learn from their mistakes, and they're not likely to be burned more than once. Still, it's hard for them to resist anything that promises a little magic in their life, and if a potential partner promises exactly that, Capricorn is probably going to be duped again.
