So, it turns out -- if you're an Aries -- you're either a deviant criminal or you're fighting the urge to be one. This from the Chatham-Kent police department in Ontario, Canada. Of the 1986 arrests made in the area, 203 of them fell under the sign of Aries. Libras were a close second at 189.


Interesting, to be sure, but what can we really glean from this?  I would guess the writers of the book Freakonomics would have a field day with this kind of information.  When we think of crazy people, we usually think Gemini or Scorpio, but Aries?

Elton John is an Aries.  So, is Leonard Nimoy!  Sandra Day O'Conner is an Aries.  Vincent Van Gogh!  Even Sir Alec Guinness was an Aries.

Obi Wan?  The face of evil?
On the other hand, so is Pat Robertson, Anita Bryant and Adolf Hitler.

I think I hate myself, most of all...
What do we know about the sign of Aries?  Besides the obvious.   It's symbol is the ram.   It's known as a bestial sign indicative of four footed animals.

According to

If you are an Aries, you were born between March 21 - April 19.

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, and that's pretty much how those born under this sign see themselves: first. Aries are the leaders of the pack, first in line to get things going. Whether or not everything gets done is another question altogether, for an Aries prefers to initiate rather than to complete. Do you have a project needing a kick-start? Call an Aries, by all means. The leadership displayed by Aries is most impressive, so don't be surprised if they can rally the troops against seemingly insurmountable odds -- they have that kind of personal magnetism. An Aries won't shy away from new ground, either. Those born under this sign are often called the pioneers of the zodiac, and it's their fearless trek into the unknown that often wins the day. Aries is a bundle of energy and dynamism, kind of like a Pied Piper, leading people along with its charm and charisma. The dawning of a new day -- and all of its possibilities -- is pure bliss to an Aries.

The least arrested of the zodiac signs was the Sagittarius.  I think those are the people we have to watch.
