Each of the 12 star signs is often associated with certain general attributes and stereotypes.
Geminis are considered social and versatile, but this can be mistaken for being two-faced or untrustworthy. Leos are seen as confident and are seen as leaders, but this can be interpreted as narcissism or being overly dominant.
When analyzing birth charts or examining the 12 houses, many believe that someone’s zodiac sign can tell a lot about their personality and traits, while others flock to the stars for life guidance. .
But can you tell how dangerous someone is based on their zodiac sign?

What is the most dangerous zodiac sign?
There is no specific answer to which is the most dangerous zodiac sign.
USA TODAY has verified a claim that the FBI has ranked the zodiac signs as “the most dangerous.” A Facebook post from August 19, 2021 shared a screenshot that appears to be from an article published by PsychReel, a UK-based website.
According to the fact check, the screenshot states that the FBI found that “people convicted of crimes are more likely to be born under the zodiac sign of Cancer.” Sagittarius, Scorpio and Aries are close behind, he says.
But the FBI said that wasn’t true. A spokesperson told USA TODAY via email that the agency “has not conducted a study of the most dangerous zodiac signs.”
So, there is no way to prove that one zodiac sign is more dangerous than another.
