According to astrology, we all have a few negative personality traits mixed in with positive ones. But are any of the zodiac signs downright dangerous?

What is the most dangerous zodiac sign?

Back in 2015, several articles claimed the FBI released a study ranking zodiac signs by their predisposition for criminal activity, alleging that Cancer is the most dangerous zodiac sign. That has never been proven to be true, however, as no such study appears to have been released by the FBI.

To the contrary, serial killer database Killer.Cloud compiled a list of 488 serial killers categorized by their zodiac signs and in doing so found Capricorn to be the most dangerous zodiac sign, while Cancer ranked less dangerous than all signs other than Taurus, which they deemed the least dangerous.

Remember folks: correlation does not equal causation. Just because you see similarities between two variables doesn't always mean that one causes the other to happen. You have to dig deeper.

Zodiac Signs Ranked From Most To Least Dangerous

1. Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

This sign is most likely to be an all-around criminal with a careless nature.

Capricorn is well-equipped to commit crimes of any nature, be it a petty pick-pocketing or the more serious act of murdering someone.

Their disadvantage is that they are careless and be easily caught.

2. Leo (July 23 - August 23)

Leo can seem psychotic with a high temper. Ruled by Fire and represented by a Lion, Leo carries the planet Mercury in their head.

3. Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

What makes Scorpio dangerous is their tendency to be jealous, aggressive, and sadistic.

Their sadistic nature makes them manipulate others, and even if they don’t commit crimes on their own, they are the ones who pull the strings.

4. Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

An extremely harsh personality and a great thief are what make Sagittarius dangerous.

Sagittarius doesn’t shed blood until and unless their lives are in danger, but under the right circumstances, they can be extremely brutal.

5. Aquarius (January 21 - February 18)

Aquarius may have a manipulative and vengeful personality. Usually well-behaved, Aquarius is the best when it comes to taking revenge.

Their charismatic leadership skills make them good manipulators and great hackers, too.

6. Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Libra may get involved in monetary crimes or those related to drugs. Though Libra is represented by the symbol of scales, they can commit crimes too, although they don’t break the law easily.
