Each of 12 astrological signs are often associated with certain attributes and overall stereotypes.
Geminis are considered social and versatile, but this can be mistaken for being two-faced or untrustworthy. Leos are deemed confident and are seen as leaders, but this may be construed as narcissism or being overly dominant.
Through analyzing birth charts or examining the 12 houses, many believe someone’s Zodiac sign can say a lot about their personality and traits, with others flocking to the stars for guidance on life.
But can you determine how dangerous someone is based on their Zodiac sign?

What is the most dangerous Zodiac sign?
There is no specific answer to what is the most dangerous Zodiac sign.
USA TODAY fact checked a claim that the FBI ranked the “most dangerous” Zodiac signs. A Facebook post from Aug. 19, 2021 shared a screenshot graphic appearing to be from an article published by PsychReel, a UK-based website.
According to the fact check, the screenshot states the FBI has found “individuals convicted for crimes are most likely to have been born under the zodiac sign of Cancer.” Sagittarius, Scorpio and Aries follow closely, it says.
But the FBI said this was not true. A spokesperson told USA TODAY fact check via email that the agency “has not conducted a study of the most dangerous zodiac signs.”
So, there is no way to prove one Zodiac sign is more dangerous than another.
