5 Ways Psychopaths Will Try To Manipulate You

Surviving an abusive relationship with someone who has manipulated, lied, cheated, and stole everything from you can be a very hard lesson to learn from as well as describing what life was like with someone who had no intentions of making you happy whatsoever.


When it comes to dealing with someone who obsessively tries to manipulate you, you can find yourself with low self-esteem issues, depression, anxiety, and a lot more if you do not take the necessary steps in order to help yourself.

You will want to pay close attention to these warning signs with whatever manipulator comes next in your life.

1. Verbal Assault

A huge warning sign that indicates that you are dealing with a very manipulative person may entail them verbally assaulting you on a daily basis. A manipulator does not care about your feelings, ideas, or your concerns for the situation.

All they care about is belittling you every single chance that they get in order to get what they want from you. They will find every possible flaw about your person and verbally assault you when you try to confront them.

Pay very close attention as to what they say to you.

2. Dishonest

Manipulators love a chance to gossip about people behind their backs at any given moment they think that it will benefit them in the future.

They demonstrate just how dishonest they can really be when it comes to confidentiality, loyalty, and anything else that involves breaking your trust. This is a huge warning sign that you are dealing with a very manipulative person.

The more dishonest they become the more they do not care if you exist in their lives or not.

3. No More Self-Esteem

If you have been with a manipulative person for a very long time and you feel as if there is no more self-esteem inside of yourself simply because this one person sapped you of all potential self-love, then you do not need to think twice about this being a major warning sign of a manipulator.

If you truly feel as if this person genuinely makes an effort to make you feel like you are less than dirt, then you must do everything in your power to never see this person again. You deserve happiness despite whatever they tell you.

4. Purposely Making You Insane

If the person you are with conjures stories, fabricates incidents, or lies entirely about things that never happened, then you are dealing with an extremely manipulative person.

These kinds of people will do everything in their power to make you believe that you are the one who is going insane in the relationship.

Even though you wake, do what you always do and don't think twice about it, this gives them the perfect chance to break your spirit and make you want them even more because of how insane you feel.

Do not second guess your judgement and leave this person if you cannot feel sane with them.

5. Fake Victim

A manipulator will play everything off as if they were the victim the entire time. They will bring up random incidents that happened or may not have happened to them that made them feel as if they were the ones being attacked.

Manipulators do this in order to make you feel sorry for them and perhaps maybe that you will do everything you can in order to make them happy again. Do not give into this little game of theirs. You have been the victim this entire time and must find a way out.

Hopefully this has given you some insight into the world of a toxic manipulative human being who wishes nothing more than to make you miserable in order for them to gain some kind of self indulgence in their lives.

Remember that you are the victim in any of these situations and that you must be willing to fight for your happiness in order for them to never sink their fangs into you ever again.

This Week's Horoscope Turns Thoughts Into Action, Here's How Each Zodiac Harnesses Its Energy

November 29- December 5

Brought to you by our friend Kelli Fox at Astrology.TV

There are a lot of constructive vibes around this week, and a whole lot of idealism too. The week begins with a potent Mars-Neptune trine on Monday, which encourages us to put some of our grand ideas into action.

We get back up on this task on Tuesday, with sextiles from the Sun and Mercury to practical Saturn, and from socially facilitating Venus to Neptune. Harnessing these energies means we can move forward constructively as well as find backing from our teams, colleagues, friends, and families.

The weekend may be a different matter, however – the Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius promises shocks in the system, especially related to issues of justice, fairness, or freedom.

Take a quick zodiac reading here to find out what the universe has to say about you right now.

Aries

You know what you want to do to improve the world, Aries, but you've always hesitated to take action on that. On Monday, the Mars-Neptune trine could be the push you've been waiting for, as you realize that your ideas and ideals can make a difference after all.

Tuesday is a particularly good day for getting moving with this. Get others on board with help from the Sun/Mercury-Saturn sextile, and fine-tune your career towards a more altruistic purpose with help from the Venus-Neptune sextile.

Saturday's Solar Eclipse prompts you to expand your horizons. You've been taking too narrow a view of life. Seek new views, learn new philosophies, visit new lands, meet new people. Change comes through many minds working together.

Taurus

This week, you're inspired to create common goals with your partner – or with those closest to you, if you're single – and to work together on something which matters to your soul. The Mars-Neptune trine on Monday is particularly inspirational for this.

On Tuesday, the Sun/Mercury-Saturn sextile grows your confidence, while the Venus-Neptune sextile helps you to get support from your wider network or community for the ideals you're trying to share.

Look to Saturday's Solar Eclipse, however, for some boundary setting. You may have been too forceful in your dealings with others, or perhaps you've allowed others to behave inappropriately with you. That has to stop.

Gemini

Focus on finding ways to improve your efficiency at work, or the ease and comfort in which you can do your job. You have many ideas for how to improve things, especially on Monday when Mars trines Neptune – some of them are a bit 'far out', perhaps, but it could be that their time has come!

You'll get plenty of backup on Tuesday from your partner, courtesy of a helpful Sun/Mercury-Saturn sextile, and you can also expect favorable reactions from authority figures, with the Venus-Neptune sextile helping your persuasive skills.

Saturday's Solar Eclipse occurs in your love zone – this could bring a shock or revelation about a partner, but it's likely to impact your own personal growth in a positive manner.

Leo

Family matters get a dose of healing and compassion this week, especially on Monday when Mars trines Neptune and encourages much better mutual understanding and forgiveness.

This provides a sense of relief and celebration, especially on Tuesday, when the Sun and Mercury sextile Saturn, allowing joy to flow through your relationship, and when Venus sextiles Neptune, freeing up more time for you to spend with your lover.

Saturday's Solar Eclipse occurs in your risk zone and encourages you to take a leap of faith. This is a very good time for treating fears and phobias, and for allowing your emotions to spill out freely – don't hold anything back.

Virgo

There's a real sense of partnership in your relationship this week, with you both working together as a strong team and towards a shared purpose. The lovely Mars-Neptune trine on Monday underscores this and points towards a shared spiritual understanding too.

Improved communication on Tuesday will help with getting what you want, boosted by the Sun/Mercury sextile to Saturn. Meanwhile, family backup is also strong, as mirrored by the Venus-Neptune sextile the same day. People really are on your side.

The Solar Eclipse on Saturday challenges you to keep an open mind about a controversial subject; try to avoid speaking out on topics where you don't really know much about the background. Use it as an opportunity to learn.

Scorpio

You've known for some time that you need to focus more on the joy in your life – Monday's Mars-Neptune trine will help you do just that. Your priority this week should be things that make you smile, laugh, feel alive and feel vibrant.

You may have the opportunity to do something special on Tuesday, when the Sun/Mercury sextile to Saturn gives a financial push, and the Venus-Neptune sextile hints at magical experiences. Say yes to whatever life offers.

The Solar Eclipse on Saturday occurs in your money zone and may hold some shocks and surprises if you have been reckless with your finances. Pay attention to your personal security around this time too, and don't take chances.

Sagittarius

This is a very spiritual week for you, Sagittarius, and on Monday especially you will feel drawn to meditation, divination, psychic insights, mediumship and past life regression. As Mars trines Neptune, all of these things have much wisdom to offer you.

You'll want to learn too, and Tuesday's Sun/Mercury-Saturn sextile gives you the opportunity to do so. As Venus sextiles Neptune the same day, you may also find a way to earn money through your spiritual gifts, although you should be careful to maintain the highest of intentions.

Friendships are set to be important this week, and you will especially love meeting new people who gel with you intellectually. When Mars trines Neptune on Monday, it's also a good time for meeting people who can work with you towards a common cause, whether that's political, charitable or local.

There's a spiritual element to your group interactions too, most likely on Tuesday when the Sun/Mercury-Saturn sextile shows how you share values with other like-minded souls and the Venus-Neptune sextile activates the spiritual elements of your identity.

It's perhaps unsurprising then that the Solar Eclipse on Saturday in your spiritual zone may mark a turning point in your spiritual understanding. Open your heart and mind to new possibilities.

Aquarius

Give your ambitions free reign this week, because the cosmic vibes are lining up to support your success. On Monday, the Mars-Neptune trine is very promising, particularly if you want to work in a creative or artistic field, or if financial rewards for your efforts have been a long time coming.

On Tuesday you should find that the Sun/Mercury-Saturn sextile provides strong support from friends or your work-based team and the Venus-Neptune sextile the same day highlights money coming in from an imaginative or unusual direction.

The Solar Eclipse, however, occurs in your community zone on Saturday. Try to blend your very reasonable desire for material success with your deeper humanitarian desire for a better society. How can you work towards both these goals? There is a way.

Pisces

New experiences beckon this week if you can step out of your comfort zone. Look to the Mars-Neptune trine on Monday to provide you with the confidence you need. Anything involving travel or outdoor adventure will be particularly good at showing you what you can do.

Sextiles from the Sun/Mercury to Saturn and to Neptune from Venus also play their part on Tuesday, giving you support and encouragement from friends and loved ones and reminding you that you're much more capable than you think.

Indeed, the Solar Eclipse in your status zone on Saturday may bring about a mini-crisis of some kind that puts you in the spotlight – but this will serve to teach you that you are a strong, capable individual, who does not need to fear anything. Go for it!
