People say that correlation is not causation. Nevertheless, statistics is statistics!

David Jester is a British author. He recently published his novel The Clinic: A Thriller. The book has been appraised (or criticized) for being gruesome and gory.

After doing some research, Jester also claimed that most serial killers were born in the period between April 20 and May 20.

This means that they were all Taureans!

Although significant serial killers under the sign of Taurus are less than the Geminis or Virgos, there have been some of the most bloodthirsty ones.

One of the most notable serial killers ever has been H. H. Holmes who acted in the 19th century. Although only a few of his murders were confirmed, rumors wanted him to have killed more than 200 persons in a sort of a “Murder Castle” in order to lure therein, kill and hide or burn the corpses there.

Hitler was a Taurus as well by the way….

Are some zodiac signs more murderous than others?

Well, this is a tough question. First of all, it should be said that all signs have their share when it comes to murderous records. Pisces, Geminis, Taurus and Virgos score high. Aries, Scorpios, Sagittarius and Capricorns can also display representatives in the serial killing records while Cancers, Leos, Libras and Aquarius have less cases to show.

Still, the statistics does not mean that the zodiac signs at the bottom of the list could not turn to lunatic murderers. For example, Genene Anne Jones, which was a nurse suspected for the death of more than 60 infants, has born as a sensitive Cancer.

Surely, becoming a serial killer is a failure in managing aggressivity and instincts that surpass any zodiac sign characteristic. However, some tendencies may be revealing.
