A TikToker has pointed out how some of the world’s most notorious serial killers all share the same four star signs. Make of that what you will.
'Armchair astrologist' Lauren Skirvin (@whydontyoub***haboutit) compiled a list of famous murderers and their star signs, with high profile killers including Jeffrey Dahmer – who is currently the subject of a chilling new Netflix series – Ted Bundy and Ed Gein.
“For those of you who don't believe in astrology, how can you explain that there’s only four signs included in this long list?” she asked
Skirvin pointed out that there was one sign from each of the elements on the list of serial killers – Sagittarius being a fire sign, Gemini an air sign, Pisces a water sign and Virgo an earth sign.
She explained that Virgo ‘shows up the most’, with 10 serial killers on the list being Virgos.
“You know that their crime scenes are immaculate though,” Skirvin said.
“You know they’re bleaching those crime scenes within an inch of their lives, and they’re perfectionists, so no stone is left unturned.”
Gemini was the next most common on the list, with murderers like Jeffrey Dahmer and David ‘Son of Sam’ Berkowitz sharing the sign.
“Pisces is surprising to nobody either, because they let s**t build up and then they explode,” the TikToker said – with John Wayne Gacy and Richard ‘The Night Stalker’ Ramirez both being one of eight Pisces on the list.
She continued: "Sagittarius is most surprising, but they’re only listed four times here.
"Sagittarius is chaotic and impulsive – I don’t know, you mix that with mental health issues, and I could see it happening.”
Earlier in the video, Skirvin also noted that there was one star sign not on the list that she may have perhaps expected to see.
“The most surprising thing about this list is that Scorpio is not on it,” she said.
“However, a name that is missing from this list is the Zodiac killer, who a team of codebreakers has decided was Gary Francis Poste, who’s a Scorpio.
“So we don’t know if that’s true or not, but if it's true - if he is a Scorpio - he would be the one Scorpio out of the list.”
Skirvin added: “Have you ever seen a Scorpio pop off? It is so frightening.”
Ian Brady, Joel Rifkin and Harold Shipman were all born under the Capricorn star sign, as were the notorious Vasili ‘Wolf of Moscow’ Komaroff and German serial killer Niels Högel.
According to Astrology Zodiac Signs, Capricorns make for ‘good managers’, being ‘responsible, disciplined’ and in possession of good ‘self-control’.
“It is the sign of decisions made to be protected from monsters in our minds, lives, and immediate physical surrounding,” the website says.
“Always ready to transform into something that scares those scary things off, Capricorn speaks of each natural chain reaction of fear, where one scary thing leads to many others, rising up as defensive mechanisms that only make things worse.
“Immersed in their secrecy, they face the world just as they are – brave enough to never run away, but constantly afraid of their inner monsters.”
However, it's worth noting that there are still a number of well-known killers that weren't mentioned by either Skirvin or Miller.
For instance, H. H. Holmes, the Chicago chemist who turned a hotel into a torture castle, was a Taurus, while Pedro 'Monster of the Andes' López was a Libra.
