Capricorn: the most strangled astrological sign
Capricorn, the agile goat, is the second most likely astrological sign to suffer an unnatural death (after Virgo).
An extensive study of the causes of death and the astrological sign of the deceased was carried out over a period of almost ten years. More than 60,000 deaths were reviewed and the results were compiled in one study. The intention behind this massive project was to see if the traits and characteristics of each astrological sign influenced the way they died. In particular, whether or not there was a link between the astrological sign and the type of unnatural death (suicide, murder, accident, etc.).
The results showed that Capricorns were the second tallest overall, making them the second most likely astrological sign to die unnaturally. Capricorns were found to be the leaders (most likely to die) in four of the causes of death examined in the study. Capricorn scored highest in death by fire (same first as Taurus), drug overdose (same first as Leo), as a pedestrian and was also the astrological sign most likely to be strangled.
Astrology studies show that there are two types of Capricorns: the agile and ambitious mountain goat and the charming grass-chewing garden goat. The Capricorn mountain goat will amaze everyone around it with its tenacity and drive to achieve its goals. The Capricorn garden goat is equally capable of greatness, it just needs a good kick to the butt to get moving!
So the questions that arise from the results of this study are why Capricorn ranks second overall in the ranking of unnatural deaths and first in the four categories mentioned above. In this article, I’ll look at the possible reasons why Capricorn ranks first in strangulation and drug overdose.
Capricorns, for all their attractive and impressive positive qualities, have some very unpleasant traits; being stingy with money, self-centered and pessimistic. Being an Ebeneezer Scrooge and self-centered could certainly go a long way in getting someone else to strangle them. In fact, apart from involvement in crime, selfishness and lust for money were frequently cited in death case studies as the main contributing factors to the Capricorn strangulation.
The pessimism and sadness that often mark the Capricorn personality could be a contributing factor to the large number of Capricorns who die each year from a drug overdose (suicide). This high rate in Capricorn could also be partially explained by the ambition factor and the tendency of successful young people (and not so young) to use drugs as a status symbol or as a risk activity.
