What would make you kill someone? Do you even have it in you to murder someone? Is it possible that certain circumstances can justify the unthinkable?
We all go through difficult times, sometimes extremely difficult times where we just lose it. When you’re angry and hurting, you’re probably not thinking straight and you can do things that you’d never imagine you do.
There are things like extenuating circumstances. If someone physically harmed you or your family, your reaction might be to inflict the same kind of hurt on them. When you’re so far gone, murder can make a certain sense — an eye for an eye and all that.
Could you live with yourself if you did something as heinous as murder or would it become the first step in your own destruction?
If you’re in an extremely dark place, you may be able to rationalize murder or see it as the only action you can take. Psychopaths and serial killers aren’t the only people who commit murder, but they don’t have to get to the same place a normal human being would have to in order to kill someone.
Murder fascinates us. Think of all the material there is on this topic: books, documentaries, films, television shows, theater, and even fine art. Murder is morally wrong, and yet, we can’t seem to get enough of it.
If your partner broke your heart in a cruel and in an unbelievably insensitive way (and if when they did it, you were caught completely off-guard), you might be so overcome with grief that killing seemed like a reasonable plan.
The truth is you would have to be in a very, very bad place to even consider murdering someone. Not only is it morally wrong, but the repercussions would be harsh. There are very few perfect crimes and the likelihood that you’d be caught and tried is great.
Here’s what would drive you to murder, based on your zodiac sign.
ARIES (March 21 – April 19)
If someone pissed you off to such an extent, it could drive you to do something foolish and risky. And since you don’t always think things through, it’s not difficult to imagine you doing something that was foolhardy and endangering. It’s quite possible that you’d kill someone by accident and would feel remorse about it afterward. Then again, you might murder someone out of road rage for driving too slowly.
TAURUS (April 20 – May 20)
It’s not difficult to imagine you killing someone out of jealousy. You tend to get possessive and since it takes you forever to trust, you don’t handle the breaking of that trust very well. You’d want them to suffer the way that you had and somehow it would get out of hand and they’d end up dead.
GEMINI (May 21 – June 20)
Most of the time you’re easy-going and a people-pleaser, but to be that way, you push down most of your negative emotions until one day they explode out. If someone was there on the wrong day and time and did something that really upset you, it’s not out of the realm of possibilities that you might lose it in such a way that threatened someone’s life.
CANCER (June 21 – July 22)
If someone harmed someone or something (your pet) that you loved, you’d go ballistic. You’d hurt them down and hurt them bad. You’d be blind with rage, not thinking straight, and your emotions would be guiding you to a place of darkness and revenge. No one messes with your family on your watch.
LEO (July 23 – August 22)
If someone humiliated you in front of other people to such an extent that it ruined your reputation and your name, you might rationalize it that the only way that you’d be able to make things right would be for them to pay with their lives. You need to be the center of attention but you can’t tolerate being the focus of ridicule and mockery.
VIRGO (August 23 – September 22)
You know things; in fact, you’re kind of a know-it-all and one thing that you can’t abide by is someone who belittles you and makes you feel small and stupid. There’s also the chance that your self-satisfaction and arrogance might provoke you in trying to get away with the perfect crime.
LIBRA (September 23 – October 22)
If you were at a point in your life where seemingly everything had gone wrong and you were at the end of your rope, or if you were feeling completely overwhelmed by hopelessness without a way to cope, you might be compelled to take a life.
SCORPIO (October 23 – November 21)
If you were hell bent on revenge, you might channel all that negative energy towards murder. You don’t handle betrayal well and sometimes your desire for vengeance can cloud your better judgment and make you take horrific actions.
SAGITTARIUS (November 22 – December 21)
The only way you’d kill someone is if you were wasted out of your mind with alcohol or drugs. You wouldn’t be aware of what you were doing and when it was over and you were sober, you’d have no clue about what you did or why.
CAPRICORN (December 22 – January 19)
You might be moved to murder a business colleague or someone who got in the way of you making big money or was involved with a failure business deal. You hate it when someone interferes with your finances and if a trusted accountant or business manager stole from you, you might seek revenge.
AQUARIUS (January 20 – February 18)
You would kill someone if they asked you to because they were in extreme pain or had a terminal illness. You don’t approve of murder but you wouldn’t think of it that way; you’d see it as being compassionate and a humanitarian.
PISCES (February 19 – March 20)
You’d only kill someone in self-defense if they were attacking you to the degree that it was either you or them and you had absolutely no choice but to kill them to save your own life. You’d probably never recover from it.
