Our Marketing Director was in a Halloween-Scary mood the other day, so posted a link to Purple Clover who had done an article on the ten worst serial killers, and how their astrology affected their life choices.
John Wayne Gacy, Jr., also known as the Killer Clown, was an American serial killer and rapist who sexually assaulted and murdered at least 33 teenage boys and young men between 1972 and 1978 in Chicago, Illinois. Pisces with Mars in Gemini, and Saturn in Taurus.
- 40 Serial Killers Each Gemini and Pisces are both mutable signs. Meaning, they can pick up the energy of others, which can make them feel kooky and seek out murder pow plots for revenge.
- The sleuths over at Britain’s the Mirror did a serial killer astrological sign round-up, finding that the majority of bloodthirsty evildoers are Taurus.
Serial Killers Zodiac Signs Statistics
In fact, only 9% had the Moon in Fixed signs. There was only one serial killer with an Aquarius Moon, and none of them had Aquarian Sun signs. 74% had the Sun or Moon in Capricorn or Sagittarius. That is 31 out of the 44 serial killers. 32% had the planetary ruler of the Ascendant in either Sagittarius or Capricorn. While experts have yet to discover a definitive guide for detecting serial killers, there are some early warning signs they know to look out for. A rough childhood and a troubled family history are both similarities between convicted serial killers. Surprisingly, serial killers tend to be smart; Edward Kemper's IQ almost made him a genius.
One of the things they pointed out was that Mutable signs have a high level of occurrence in these individuals, so we decided to dig a little deeper, put Star Mate to work, and see what else we could find out. After running their dates of birth through our profiling system, this is what we came up with.
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. Sun in Virgo, Mars in Libra, Saturn in Capricorn.
- Mutable signs prominent.All of the top ten serial killers either had their Sun or Mercury or both in a Mutable sign (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces). Purple Clover noted this also, and it is interesting to note that the likelihood of this is very low. In a random universe, there should be a fairly even split between Cardinal, Mutable and Fixed signs. We will do an article on these in the future to provide you with more information about the difference between these three modes, so stay tuned. For now, suffice it to say that it is a quite unusual data blip.
- Mars in Air signs prominent. Half of the little darlings had Mars in an Air Sign (Gemini, Aquarius or Libra). Mars is the planet of expression, and tells how you ‘present’ yourself in the world. During our research we had noted that Mars in an Air sign, particularly Gemini, can lead to a surprising amount of hot headed-ness – even more so than the Fire signs, and this may be partially explained by Mars being more comfortable (and therefore stable) in Fire signs, whereas in Air, you are effectively throwing gasoline on a flame.
- Saturn in Earth Sign prominent. Half of the killers had Saturn in an Earth Sign (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn), although not necessarily the same half that had Mars in an Air Sign. Saturn is the Taskmaster, and asks “What have you done for me lately?” . It makes us be more critical about ourselves, and when it is in an Earth sign, it will be focused on the Earthly plane, and how we are fitting in with it. Some consider it the planet of Karma. Saturn is often related to our relationship with our father, and so a dodgy home life growing up may have helped nurture some of the more violent tendencies these individuals expressed.
- Sun in Pisces. Half (and again, not necessarily the same half) have the Sun in Pisces. There is a slight irony here, because the dramatic Pisces is often seen as seeking a Utopia for all mankind. I guess in those Pisceans where the fish swims downstream instead of up, this could translate into kulling what they perceive as the less desirable members of the human race.
- Moon in Cardinal Sign. 6/10 had their Moon on one of the Cardinal Signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn). The Moon is the planet of emotion, and Cardinal signs tend to initiate action, and quickly. This suggest that far from being cold blooded, at least 60% of these murderers were acting from an emotional state when they killed their victims.
It should be noted, so we don’t get sued to smithereens, that this is a very small sample, and there are undoubtedly other factors in play, such as childhood, insanity and basically just being a rotten human being. It is interesting, nevertheless, and another way that Star Mate can help you find someone who can be a great life choice, or perhaps someone you should avoid until after they’ve had their coffee…
Happy Star Mating!
You know how the FBI has an entire team dedicated to psychologically profiling murderers? Well, maybe they should just use astrology instead. It’s cheaper. And bizarrely on point.
Let me explain: In the zodiac, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces are known as mutable signs, meaning their signs fall at the end of a season. They're known to be adaptable and frantically indecisive. They’re like chameleons, experiencing episodic and frequent change throughout their lives. Combine that with these signs’ energies and personalities and you’ve got a recipe for people living double lives. No, really..
• Geminis are symbolized by twins and known for having multiple sides or hidden personalities. A charming outer persona and a darker, disturbed inner one? Yup, a real possibility.
• Virgos are meticulous and systematic—they live for patterns and routine. Serial killers tend to commit acts that follow a characteristic, predictable behavior pattern. So.
• Sagittarians are charismatic and thrive on adventure. It makes sense that thrill-seeking Sags might be more likely to take a chance on going through with a heinous act.
• Pisces are empathetic, but that empathy could backfire. Since they have the ability to feel collective pain, they can get overwhelmed and turn way inward as a coping mechanism.
Prada astrology bag velvet bag. Round up a few of America’s most notorious serial killers, and you’ll get: Ted Bundy (Sagittarius), Jeffrey Dahmer (Gemini), John Wayne Gacy (Pisces), Andrew Cunanan (Virgo), “Son of Sam” David Berkowitz (Gemini), Richard “the Night Stalker” Ramirez (Pisces), “Boston Strangler” Albert DeSalvo (Virgo), Randy Kraft (Pisces), Larry Eyler (Sagittarius), and “BTK” Dennis Rader (Pisces).
And it’s true that in comparing some of these criminals’ birth charts, patterns emerge. Bundy, Cunanan, Ramirez, and Kraft all share three key aspects in their chart: a harsh and tense one with Pluto, the planet of death and repressed psychological behaviors; a soft and supportive one with Mercury (the planet of communication); and a Rising sign that is conjunct with another planet.
Translation: Pluto can bring positive transformations, but when poorly aspected, it can also cause troubling self-sabotage—even a fixation with death. A Mercury connection enhances the gift of gab, a necessary skill for luring new victims. And when any planet forms an aspect to your Rising sign, it can amplify that facet of your personality. Bundy, for example, has a Venus in Scorpio that forms a stressful square to his Leo Rising. When Venus, the planet of love, forms an unforgiving aspect like this, there is a tendency for the person to struggle with self-worth and to act out as a result.
Of course, not every serial killer is a mutable sign. Other studies of serial killers' birthdays have found that a disproportionate number of them are Aquarians (Gary Ridgway, Robert Hansen, and Luis Alfredo Garavito), Tauruses (H.H. Holmes, Michael Ryan, and David Copeland), and Capricorns (The Sorcerer, Freeway Killer, and the Wolf of Moscow).
Serial Killers Zodiac Signs List
Plus, every zodiac sign can claim at least one serial killer—for example, Charles Manson was a Scorpio, 'The Hillside Strangler' Angelo Anthony Buono Jr. was a Libra, and Keith Hunter Jesperson was an Aries.
Serial Killer Horoscope Signs
Interestingly, birth charts also aren't the only intersection of astrology and true crime. Some 'forensic astrologers' try to solve murders by looking at 'event charts' or 'last seen charts' of what they cosmos looked like the day the murder occurred. Though forensic psychologists are skeptical of this, there are several popular blogsdedicated to the field.
Serial Killers Horoscope Signs
So before you freak out because you live with a Pisces, remember that birth charts are only a map. Everyone still has the power to exercise free will. Plus, “I’m a Gemini” won’t hold up in court, so, yeah. Please don’t kill anyone.
