Although many people do not believe in the influence of signs, a great similarity between several serial killers has been proven: the placement of Mars in the birth chart. Aries, Scorpio and Capricorn are strongly present and, although people of these signs are not all killers obviously, it is curious to note that they all have direct link with Mars - the planet of war and aggression.
When these signs stand out in a letter, it is nice to observe the conditions of the planet, after all, when it is weakened and strained by ways Mars can trigger aggressive behavior that can reach extreme levels, depending on the case.
Aries - Henri Désiré Landru - 'Bluebeard'
Bluebeard was born on April 12, 1869 and had Sun in Aries, Moon in Aries and several other planets in this sign. In 1914, when his wife died, he decided to put ads in the newspapers of Paris seeking to attract widows to meet with "marriage intention" - with the First World War, lots of men enlisted and eventually died during military service, leaving many widows that Landru intended to harass.
The serial killer began his murders with strangulation and then burned and dismembered the bodies of his victims. From 1914 to 1918, Landru eliminated 11 victims: 10 women and one teenage son of one of them. Without the bodies, the victims were listed as "missing" confusing the police.
Taurus - Karla Homolka
Karla Homolka was taurine with Moon in Aries and Ascendant in Capricorn. She committed a series of crimes with her husband Paul Bernardo (he had Sun in Virgo, Ascendant in Virgo and Moon in Aries). The couple became known as the 'Ken and Barbie killers' because they are blond, beautiful and extremely cruel.
Paul Bernardo and Karla Homolka were tried for the rape and murder of teenagers Leslie Mahaffy and Kristen French. In addition to the crimes for which he had been judged, Homolka also helped Paul to rape her younger sister, 15-year-old Tammy Homolka, who was sedated at the time, and died choking on her own vomit – there was no trial for this crime. Karla said that Paul was a victim, although research shows that she was as sadistic as he was.
Gemini - Patrice Alègre
Born born June 20, 1968, our third serial killer is a double Gemini: Has Sun in Gemini, Ascendant in Gemini and Moon in Aries (I swear I did not look for serial killers with the same Moon, but, coincidentally, already quoted 4 with this lunar positioning). Unfortunately, I do not have specific information on Patrick Alegre and all I can say is that he was charged with five murders and six rapes (but believe he did a lot more up until his arrest).
Cancer - Myra Hindley
Myra committed a series of crimes with her boyfriend, Ian (it will appear here as serial killer of Capricorn, the Sun sign opposite of Myra). The song Suffer Little Children by The Smiths was written about the Moors murders that they committed. Together, Myra and Ian killed at least five children.
Leo - Emile Louis
Emile Louis has Sun in Leo, Ascendant in Libra and Moon in Aries. To satisfy the doubts of those who are more advanced in astrology: Mars (which is dispositor of Moon in Aries) is positioned in the sign of Cancer in the Louis map. Louis was arrested for the rape and murder of seven young girls in a government institution for abandoned children with physical/mental problems.
Virgo - Ed Gein
Ed Gein was born on August 27, 1906 and had Sun in Virgo, Ascendant in Gemini and Moon in Sagittarius. The morbid pop culture icon inspired films like Psycho, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and many other films about serial killers. He was convicted for the murder of two people and a suspect in the disappearance of five others. The crimes gained notoriety when authorities discovered Gein exhumed corpses from local graveyards and made trophies with them.
Libra - Andrei Chikatilo
Andrei Chikatilo was born on October 16, 1936 and had Sun in Libra, Ascendant in Pisces and Moon in Scorpio. He became known as the 'butcher of Rostov', 'Red Ripper' and 'The Rostov Ripper' and became notorious for confessing to the murders of 53 people between 1978 and 1990. Andrei Chikatilo killed and cannibalized dozens of victims, mostly children he met on the bus or at train stations. The film Evilenko from 2004, starring Malcolm McDowell in the killer's role, is based on Chikatilo's history.
Scorpio - Charles Manson
Charles Manson was born on November 12, 1934 and has the Sun in Scorpio, Moon in Aquarius and Ascendant in Taurus. Charles was the leader of a murderous cult in the era of hippies and wanted to be a huge star of the music industry, although this was never achieved. As leader, Manson used various conspiracy theories to convince young people to commit murder for him. He was responsible for the death of Roman Polanski's wife, who was stabbed while she was still pregnant with their son. He was sentenced to death in 1971, which was later changed to life imprisonment, which he is serving today at the State Penitentiary in Corcoran, California.
Sagittarius - Ted Bundy
Ted Bundy was born on November 24, 1946 and had Sun in Sagittarius, Moon in Sagittarius and Ascendant in Leo. Charming, communicative and convincing, Bundy was one of the assassins who helped the authorities in understanding what a serial killer is. Bundy murdered, raped and, it seems, had sex with the bodies of the victims in an advanced state of putrefaction. He always tried to kill victims that resembled his college girlfriend. Bundy was put on trial and sentenced to death by electrocution.
Capricorn - Ian Brady
Ian Brady was born on January 2, 1938 and has the Sun, Moon, Mercury and Venus in Capricorn, with Ascendant in Taurus. As already mentioned, Ian was Myra Hindley's partner and with her murdered at least five children. His murder method involved strangulation and throat cutting.
Aquarius - Nathaniel Bar-Jonah
Nathaniel Benjamin Levi Bar-Jonah was born on February 15, 1957 and had Sun in Aquarius, Moon in Virgo and Ascendant in Aries. He was a cannibal, and kidnapped, abused, murdered and ate several children. Nathaniel was found dead in his cell on Sunday morning of April 13, 2008, at 51 years of age.
Pisces - John Wayne Gacy
Finally, but no less cruel: John Wayne Gacy was born on March 17, 1942 and had Sun in Pisces, Moon in Pisces and Sagittarius Ascendant. Known as the 'Killer Clown', Gacy was accused of killing at least 29 boys and was sentenced to 21 life sentences and 12 death sentences.
The serial killer approached the boys and offered them jobs in construction. Many guys accepted the "ride" to the Gacy "company". When the victims did not accept, Gacy went for Plan B: offered them marijuana and money if the boys had sex with him. Once inside the car, Gacy attacked the victims with chloroform. With the unconscious victim, he travelled to his home and tied them up before torturing them.
