Zodiac Signs Challenged: Serial Killers And Their Star Signs
News > Zodiac Signs Challenged: Serial Killers And Their Star Signs
It is often said that you can tell a lot about a person's personality by their zodiac or star-sign; whether they're mild-mannered, moody or mischievous, happy, half-witted or horny, astrologers believe that everything about us is 'in the stars'. But is this also true about serial killers? Can the stars predict a madness according due to the month they're born? Are Pisces predatory, Virgos vicious, Geminis less likely to garrote or an Aquarius almost certain to go ape-shit? And more importantly, do you share a star-sign (and personality traits) with a mass murderer? Let's find out.
1. Gemini - Jeffrey Dahmer
Give your twin a pat on the back, because Gemini is the least dangerous sign! Their criminal activities would probably boil down to petty theft and fraud. The negative sides of Gemini, like anxiety and inconsistency, can be the cause of this. The most notorious Geminis in history include the serial killers Jeffrey Dahmer and David Berkowitz aka Son of Sam!
2. Aquarius - John Lee Malvo
The Aquarian is fairly good natured until they’re a victim of wrongdoing. When it comes to revenge crimes, Aquarians lead the pack. The clever and charismatic Aquarius would make a good hustler or hacker. Manipulation is their dark horoscope trait.
Lee Boyd Malvo, also known as John Lee Malvo, is a convicted murderer who, along with John Allen Muhammad, committed murders in connection with the Beltway sniper attacks in the Washington Metropolitan Area over a three-week period in October 2002.
3. Leo - Anatoly Onoprienko
Watch out for the lion’s roar! Leos are notoriously passionate and feisty. Although this is mostly a positive trait, Leos can go awry if they have a psychotic temperament. The lion loves to be the center of attention, and as a fire sign, they also have a vicious temper. Leos might get sucked into criminal activity for the fame! Anatoly Yuriyovych Onoprienko was a Ukrainian serial mass murderer. He was also known by the nicknames 'The Beast of Ukraine', 'The Terminator', and 'Citizen O'.
4. Scorpio - David Parker Ray
Scorpios can be jealous and aggressive — a terrible combination in the wrong circumstances! If a Scorpio goes to the dark side, they might find work as an assassin. Scorpios are also considered the most sadistic sign, and an evil Scorpio has no issue with murder. Scorpios are very cunning. They might not commit the evil act themselves, but don’t be surprised to find them pulling all the strings out of sight. Patrick David Mackay is a British serial killer who confessed to murdering 11 people in London and Kent in England, from 1974-1975.
5. Pisces - Dennis Rader
Beware of the fish which swims in two directions! They might be concealing a hidden dark side. Pisces are most likely to be involved in crimes which hurt themselves — i.e. drug abuse. But the hot tempered Pisces can also become very dangerous if they happen to be crazy. Dennis Lynn Rader is an American serial killer who murdered ten people in Sedgwick County, Kansas, between 1974 and 1991. He is also known as the BTK Killer or the BTK Strangler. 'BTK' stands for 'Bind, Torture, Kill', which was his infamous signature. He sent letters describing the details of the murders to police and local news outlets before his arrest.
6. Libra - Lawrance Bittaker
The Libra is the sign for the balance of justice and values. A Libran doesn’t easily break the law. If they do, they are more inclined to get involved with a ponzi scheme or banking scandal. The evil Libran will likely hide behind a large organization to commit their crimes. If they go rogue, expect them to be on the run and heavily armed. Lawrence Sigmund Bittaker and Roy Lewis Norris are American serial killers and rapists known as the Tool Box Killers, who together committed the kidnap, rape, torture, and murder of five teenage girls over a period of five months in southern California in 1979.
7. Virgo - Albert De Salvo
Virgos are clever, but they also have a criminal streak. A Virgo might be more inclined to get involved with hacking, burglary, or other types of stealing. Unlike other star signs, Virgos treasure order and neatness, so don’t expect them to leave a messy trail if they commit a crime. Albert Henry DeSalvo was a criminal in Boston, Massachusetts, who confessed to being the 'Boston Strangler', the murderer of thirteen women in the Boston area from 1962 to 1964.
8. Capricorn - Charles Ng
Capricorns are the most likely to be all-around crooks. From petty crimes to sadistic acts, the criminal Capricorn can be very dangerous. On the plus side, Capricorns aren’t very good at covering their tracks. This makes them the easiest sign to bust for wrongdoing.Charles Chi-Tat Ng is believed to have raped, tortured and murdered between 11 and 25 victims with his accomplice Leonard Lake at Lake's cabin in Calaveras County, California, in the Sierra Nevada foothills 150 miles east of San Francisco.
9. Aries - Keith Hunter Jesperson - Koç
The stubborn ram doesn’t like being told what to do. They might seek an illegal career to avoid the rat race. Ariens hate to have their authority challenged. If you try to boss the ram around, you might end up getting the horns. Although the evil Arien is most likely to become a hired gun, he could become power hungry which can lead them to spin a web of illegal activity. Keith Hunter Jesperson is a Canadian-American serial killer who murdered at least nine women in the United States during the early 1990s.
10. Sagittarius - Ted Bundy
A sinister Sagittarian can be volatile and unforgiving. If the wrath of the centaur is summoned, watch out! They can be extremely harsh. That said, in most cases Sagittarians are reluctant to hurt others and are more likely to be arrested for theft — if you can catch them. The slippery centaur is notoriously hard to pin down. Just ask serial killer Ted Bundy, who escaped from prison twice.
11. Taurus - Steve Wright
Taureans are very temperamental. The possessive and stubborn bull can fly into a rage easily, making them a very risky star sign. Clever but solitary, the terrible Taurus prefers money laundering or financial crimes to avoid having to engage with others. The Taurean is a natural leader, but if they go in the wrong direction, they can easily end up as a ferocious dictator. A Taurean tyrant can be a blood-thirsty megalomaniac, hell-bent on world domination. Steven Gerald James Wright is an English serial killer, also known as the Suffolk Strangler and the Ipswich Ripper.
12. Cancer - Charles Ray Hatcher
Cancerians are the most deadly horoscope in the zodiac! Out of all the star signs, they are arrested the most. Mental instability is a negative trait of the Cancer sign, and this can make them likely to offend repeatedly. Crimes of passion are frequent in the house of Cancer. If the creepy crab gets a taste for killing, they’re likely to strike again and leave distinguishing marks on their victims. Charles Ray Hatcher was an American serial killer who confessed to having murdered 16 people between 1969 and 1982.
