We see a lot of criminal behavior in the news, on TV crime shows, in movies, and in books, but how often does a criminal act actually touch our lives? The truth is most of us have experienced a crime that was committed against us, and most of us have broken a law or committed a petty crime.

But in astrology, is it possible to determine the criminal zodiac signs and how and why they become unlawful? We sure can, because crime is part of modern life.

What is it that makes someone cross the line and do something that’s against the law? Is it some kind of character flaw, or did committing a crime appear to be the only solution?

It’s one thing if you only commit a crime once, but what about those types of people whose whole lives revolve around auto-theft, assault, burglary, and murder? Sometimes crimes are sanctioned, like when a soldier kills in the line of duty or if you steal from the grocery store to feed your family. There are times when breaking the law is your only choice.

But it's different when you're following orders or trying to survive than swindling people in a Ponzi scheme or attacking someone in a fit of rage. Criminals don't care about collateral damage or who gets hurt in their crime as long as it benefits them in some way. Here are the zodiac signs that could find themselves engaging in criminal behavior.

1. SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Scorpios have many of the characteristics of a criminal: they're mysterious, intense, focused, and when triggered can become hellbent on revenge. It's easy to picture a scenario where Scorpio might break the law to get back at someone they felt wronged them.

They're passionate and can sometimes lose sight of anything else but achieving vengeance. They're also brilliant and quite capable of pulling off the perfect crime or being their own lawyer and finding the perfect legal loophole so they don't have to go to jail. Watch out for Scorpio — they're known for being dangerous.

2. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Aries would enjoy pulling one over on the law and they'd get off on the risk factor of committing a crime. They tend to act impulsively and might not consider all the circumstances before committing a crime, and then be completely surprised when they're forced to pay the price.

Aries can also have a sense of entitlement and believe that they can get away with things that other people can't, such as driving while intoxicated or saying something that could be construed as dangerous when they're going through security at the airport. Aries come alive when they're taking risks, which is handy for a life of crime.

3. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius tend to think they're smarter than everyone else and are likely to commit white collar and cyber crimes. They can be intoxicated with how clever they are and every time they get away with something, the bolder they get.

They are such individuals that they may consider themselves to be above the law and definitely don't appreciate it when something gets in the way of what they want. If they're doing some kind of humanitarian effort and someone tries to get in their way, Aquarius isn't going to back down.

4. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Geminis can probably talk their way out of any tight situation so it's not surprising that of all the signs, they tend to be the biggest cons around. It's not unlikely that a Gemini could commit identity theft, fraud, passing bad checks, telephone scams, and get you to invest in a pyramid scheme.

They are so charming that most people have no clue this sign is scamming them, and even when Gemini gets caught, they're probably able to get their sentence reduced or have their lawyer waive their fees. Geminis don't even feel bad separating people from their money because they're able to rationalize to themselves that since no one was physically hurt, they earned that money.

5. PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

If it's not art theft, then most of the time Pisces isn't the one instigating the crime. However, since it's very difficult for a Pisces to turn someone down when they ask for help, it's not unlikely that they would assist someone with a crime, like being a plant in a tech company and stealing information to pass onto someone else or creating graphics to use in a con.

Pisces are known for being easily led and distracted, so it's not impossible that they would find themselves in a sticky situation without any knowledge of how they got there. Pisces can become infatuated with someone and the next thing they know, they're part of a cult.
