Top 5 Astrological Traits of Serial Killers

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.

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.

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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!
