Zodiac, Self

You didn't mean to do it.

“If looks could kill, he’d be dead” or “I could have murdered her when she did that” are common phrases. Most of the time, we don’t really want to kill someone by staring at them, nor do we wish someone was well and truly dead because of something they did, even if that something that affected our life in a negative way.

Most of us aren’t filled with enough rage that we would throw aside our hesitations, our moral fiber, and take someone’s life. We may plot a murder but rarely do we carry it out.

It’s not to say that we all don’t have moments where we wish someone was dead or at least not in our vicinity. 

You can be pushed to the edge when someone is threatening you or someone you love. If they’re relentless in destroying you or making life intolerable for you, you might think that there was no way out except to kill them. But we generally don’t act on our murderous impulses, possibly because we couldn’t live with the guilt, believe it to be wrong or we just don’t want to go to jail.

Of course, if you’re a psychopath or serial killer, you have none of those and will murder at will, no matter what.

What skills and qualities does one need to get away with murder? Lack of a conscience would be one and the ability to distance yourself from the consequences of murder would be another. You’d need a strong stomach to do the dead and dispose of the body.

Are there some personality traits that are helpful to have, not only to commit murder but to get away with it? Astrology may have some insight into that question.

Here's how you’d get away with murder, based on your zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

No one would question if something happened to someone who was rock climbing or boating, or any kind of outdoorsy thing with you. The two of you are hiking and you stop to rest on the cliff. If the person you're with loses their footing and falls to their death, oh well. Accidents happen. You have no idea why their parachute didn't open when the two of you went skydiving. You assumed that they knew that what you were doing had its dangers, they just didn't know that the biggest danger was you.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

If you're the prime suspect in a murder and the authorities think they're going to get a confession out of you, they can think again. It doesn't matter if they play good cop/bad cop or keep you in the interrogation room for hours, you're going to stick to your story that you had nothing to do with their death. By the time they're done questioning you, they're going to be so exhausted, they'll think they were the perpetrators. There are some instances where being bullheaded pays off and being able to stonewall the police is one of them.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You'll confess to the crime but you'll be confused by the details and won't be able to get the story straight. The police will just think you're one of those crackpots who confess to crimes that they've never committed. They'll think you have mental issues, but if you're crazy, you're crazy like a fox. You know what you're doing and you're using your ability with words to find out what evidence the police have. Then, you'll confuse things so much, the police will let you go. You're much more cunning than people give you credit for.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Obviously, if you murdered someone it was a crime of passion — either a lover cheated on you, a spouse abused you, or your parent neglected you. You can't be held accountable for your actions, and when the court sees how truly sorry you are and how you can't stop crying, they won't have the heart to convict you. It's not that you're a bad person, you just couldn't take it anymore.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

While you do like the attention that a splashy murder trial would bring, if you were suspected of murder, you'd just rely on your three major attributes: your charm, your acting ability, and your good looks. It would seem impossible that someone of your stature and glamor would ever do something as heinous as murder — no one would believe it and after you gave your impassioned speech, they'd just let you go, hopefully not to murder again.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

It's amazing what one can find on the internet — not just the best way to commit murder, but people to do it for you. You'd have a solid alibi and would be able to play the grieving spouse, concerned co-worker, or distraught family member without much effort. You're shrewd and this is one time when your perfectionism will come in handy. You may seem modest and shy but underneath that is an aptitude for murder.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

You're one of the Angels of Mercy types, the people who murder the dying and the sick. You'd rather perform euthanasia than see someone suffer. Because you don't have any ties to your victim, you don't feel responsible for your actions or like you even committed a crime. If someone was able to link one of your kills to you, you'd just charm them to see things from your point of view.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

You'll insist on being your own defense lawyer and you'll be able to spin it in such a way that you'll have both the judge and the jury rooting for you. You're brilliant and passionate, and you'll make them see that you had no other choice but to murder that slimeball who cheated on you and stole all your money. You did it as a service to the community.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You'll just flee the country and go somewhere where there aren't any stringent extradition laws. If you need to keep moving, that's no problem for you — you'd rather change your identity and your location than be left to rot in a jail cell.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

You were meticulous in the planning and carried out your murder plan to the tiniest detail. If anyone can plan and carry out the perfect murder, it's you. You don't kill for sport; if you needed to murder someone it was for a good reason (at least in your mind) and you thought long and hard before you carried it out. There wouldn't be a scrap of evidence to tie you to the crime.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Since your murder method was something new and innovative, the authorities won't be able to tell that your victim was murdered. You think so far out of the box that most people can't comprehend how brilliant you are. You probably killed some jerk who was destroying the environment, hurting animals, or doing something harmful to humans. It was more of a service to mankind than an act of vengeance.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Somehow you didn't think the murder was real; you thought it was a nightmare or some kind of fantasy in your head. Luckily, there's something about your kind demeanor that makes you seem innocent of any kind of crime, and since you're somewhat out of touch with reality anyway, you just don't seem capable of committing murder.
