VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)

Virgo isn’t looking for trouble. In fact, they’re more likely to help fight crime by pointing out every little infraction they see. Organized and detail-oriented, Virgo would make an excellent legal researcher. Because they’re so insistent on things being done “by the book,” they’re not likely to break any rules.

CANCER (June 21 – July 22)

Cancer is another quiet, peaceful sign that prefers to mind their own business. This is the “nurturing parent” of the zodiac, and they may give real criminals too many chances (if Cancer really loves someone, their home is always open to them no matter what), but Cancer seldom gets personally involved in actual law-breaking.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus can become dangerously violent if they have to defend themselves and their property, but otherwise, this sign prefers to live and let live.

Although Taurus loves “the good life” and is willing to go a long way to acquire wealth and property, they’re also keenly aware of boundaries. Just because they want to accumulate as much as they can for themselves and their family, it doesn’t mean that they’re willing to steal from someone else.

LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)

Libra wants everyone to be treated fairly and would be appalled at the idea of hurting someone else or taking what they don’t deserve. But this goes two ways, and Libra knows that the law isn’t always fair, either.

If Libra turns rogue, it’s not because they just feel like breaking all the rules, but because they want to change the bad ones.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)

Good-natured and flexible, Sagittarius usually stays out of real trouble, but they do have a problem with impulse control. When they get excited about a prospect or an idea (or if they just want something so badly they can’t stand it), they don’t always stop to think about going through the “proper channels.”

LEO (July 23 – August 22)

Big-hearted Leo doesn’t mean any harm. But they need that attention and praise, and sometimes their ego doesn’t care where it comes from.

When Leo feels they’re being ignored, they’ll act out and push the envelope if they have to. If Leo’s hanging with the wrong crowd, they may be inspired to participate in criminal activity just because they want to impress everyone.

 CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)

Capricorn is all about finding the most efficient way to reach their goals. Cold and calculating, they’re not always too concerned with obeying the spirit of the law.

However, going to jail wouldn’t be very efficient either, so Capricorn isn’t likely to break any rules unless they’re certain that they won’t get caught.

PISCES (February 19 – March 20)

Unlike Capricorn, Pisces is ruled by their emotions. They tend to get caught up in others’ problems and have a hard time separating their own feelings from those of the people around them.

Pisces probably won’t initiate criminal activities on their own, but if they’ve been convinced that it’s the only solution to a problem, they’re easily led into trouble.

GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)

Eloquent and intellectual, Gemini can get other people to go along with just about anything, and this is a talent that’s easily abused. Violent crime doesn’t appeal to most Geminis, but they’re very good at fraud, deception, coercion, blackmail — anything that allows them to convince others to give Gemini whatever they want.

AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)

Aquarius isn’t concerned with social norms or expectations, and they tend to feel like they’re above most laws. For all their eccentricities, though, Aquarius usually wants to see improvements in the lives of all humans, rather than making things worse.

If an Aquarius is breaking the law, they probably believe that their own humanitarian agenda justifies their actions.

ARIES (March 21 – April 19)

Aries is determined to get what they want, and they’re going to do it their own way, no matter what the law has to say about it. Passionate, impatient, and quick-tempered, Aries may be most prone to physical violence and destruction of property.

SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)

Although this sign is associated with the legal system itself, Scorpio’s mind and heart are naturally inclined toward anything forbidden: they love secrets, drama, and excitement. The criminal underworld is attractive to them, and depending on their other talents, they may be involved in all kinds of nefarious things.

Scorpio is clever, though, and because they have an affinity for both self-preservation and finding legal loopholes, they’ll probably never get caught.
