The most successful people in the world can be well known for a variety of skills – and among them is the ability to bend others to their will.
But according to an astrologer, this cunning and ambition can be influenced by the stars.
Nicolas Aujula, an astrologer and past life therapist from London, told FEMAIL that celebrities such as Kylie Jenner, Leonardo DiCaprio and Holly Willoughby topped the list.
Indeed, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius and Taurus are the most manipulative signs of the zodiac.
According to the astrologer – who has previously made headlines claiming to have predicted Covid-19, Trump’s election defeat and Kim Kardashian’s divorce – some investments are more prone to success than others, purely because of their influence, their persuasiveness and their appeal in groups.

And fierce fire sign Leo leads the council.
“Leos are born leaders who naturally take charge and exude a confidence that makes people believe what they say,” Nicolas explained.
“They’re bossy, charismatic, attention-seeking and often speak like a polished politician, which means people are easily swayed by them.”
Celebrities born under the mighty Leo include Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle, Kylie Jenner and Dua Lipa.
Elsewhere, the “my way or the highway” nature of Taurus can also bring out manipulative characteristics.
“Taurus are practical and stubborn,” added the astrology expert.
“Because they are particularly shrewd when making financial decisions, they are seen as aspirational to many, and so people around them tend to follow their lead.”
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 host Holly Willoughby (pictured in February), who recently suffered a backlash after Phillip Schofield’s dramatic exit from the ITV programme.

However, there’s a thin line between charming your friends and family into following your lead and adopting controlling tendencies to go your own way – like Scorpio, who takes second place in the list.
“Scorpio has a natural magnetism that draws people to them,” Nicolas said.
“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.”
THE MOST OR LESS MANIPULATORY ZODIAC SIGNS – ACCORDING TO NICOLAS
King Charles III, Leonardo DiCaprio and Katy Perry are among the stars born under this intense, sting-clad zodiac.
Kris Jenner — a reality TV powerhouse known for her business acumen — is also, perhaps unsurprisingly, a Scorpio.
Cool and detached Aquarians are also ranked in the top five, with Nicolas saying that certain signs are particularly adept at influencing others in specific situations.
For example, he says the zodiac water-bearer may know where the funniest underground clubs are, while Cancer makes the best restaurant choices, and Libra is best at picking out fashion or lifestyle products. beauty.
Famous Aquarians include Ellen DeGeneres, Oprah Winfrey, and Shakira.
Another star born under the sign is This Morning host Holly Willoughby, who recently faced backlash after Phillip Schofield’s dramatic exit from the ITV programme.
At the other end of the scale, the zodiac signs that are comparative pushovers are apparently Pisces, Virgo and Gemini – while Libra and Capricorn are easily swayed by others if they feel they can score points among their peers by following the crowd.
But all is not lost for signs that don’t have a natural propensity for influence, as Nicolas reveals, you can learn to forge your own path by “developing a self-confidence that ensures people listen to what that you say with interest, using clear and clear terms”. concise communication and clearly know your subject so that your audience trusts you”.
“The main benefit of being able to rally people is that you are able to make quick decisions, inspire others, inspire change and focus more on external success,” he added.
Nicolas provided insight as part of a Bonusetu.com study of the most influential and acclaimed star signs – which found that Taurus tends to be the most overlooked in pop culture, while Gemini receives the most critical praise.
