Many people have asked me about the sun signs of the male murderers, so I have begun to make statistic counts of them. One should always remember that the Sun sign itself only represents a small fraction of an entire birth chart - I
belive 2-5% - but in popular astrology it is definitely overrated, if you ask me.
Below I present my research results so far. There is nothing that indicates that the Sun signs by themselves play a role in the astrological charts of the male murderers
- but when the Sun signs are combined with the Neptune signs - then there is a statistically significant correlation rendering a Chi Square result of 0.0011, which means that the chance that this correlation has happened by coincidence is 1 out of 889. It
was Robert Currey, who pointed this possibility out to me after having looked at the below bar diagrams, and I wish to thank him for making the observation and communicating it to me.
We are talking about a so-called 6th harmonic relation between the
Sun and Neptune - or you could call it conjunctions, oppositions, trines and sextiles by whole signs. If this discovery was to be put into practice, then the astrologer could use +11% for the whole sign conjunctions, oppositions, trines and sextiles and
-11% for the rest. But at the end of the article I have checked out the Sun-Neptune cycle by degree - and the result limits the statistical significance to the sextile only - with a +54% to the sextiles, rendering a statistical significance of 0.0046 or a
1:218 chance that the result could have happened at random. All in all it's merely a small piece in a great jigsaw puzzle.
If you wish to get an idea about the statistical significance is calculated, please check out this page.
Let's take it step by step. In Figure 1 I present the counts among the entire collection of 1260 male murderers born between January 1st 1930 and December 31st 1969. 512 af the data are from rectified charts with a birth time - the rest are from untimed
data from Wikipedia and other sources. More data will be added as I work my way through them.
