Star signs in jail

Here’s what London’s prisons look like by their star sign

Leos are the star sign most likely to end up in London’s prisons, according to the Ministry of Justice.

Data from a November 2020 Freedom of Information request showed there were a total of 881 Leos across all London prisons, followed closely by Capricorn with a total of 878.

You will find Leos mainly in Wandsworth, Highdown and Wormwood Scrubs with a combined total of 353 offences to their names.

According to, Leos are obsessed with attention and drama and would commit a crime simply for the attention. 

They also say that although Libra, the most well behaved sign with 737 inmates, is considered to be the more just, they are also considered to be the most corrupt, going from city cop to underground mole in a short space of time.

Joining Libra with the least inmates is Aquarius (760) and Sagittarius (762) both of whom can be found mainly at Wandsworth and the least at Downview.

An article written by Melissa Martinez, explains how the zodiac sign a person is born under may directly connect them to the kind of crime they’re liable to commit.

She said: “Of the three fire signs, Sagittarius is seen as having more of the criminal element and is harder to arrest. Aries are typically armed for a cause and Leos are extremely dangerous.

“When it comes to the three air signs, Libras tend to have more of the criminal element in them. Gemini folk are often linked to cases of fraud while Aquarius tends to commit revenge-like crimes.

“In the earth sign category, Taurus is seen as the temperamental and risky sign. Virgos are typically armed while Capricorns are habitually versatile criminals.

“For the water signs, Cancer has the most criminals of all zodiac signs and can be extremely violent. Both Pisces and Scorpio have out of control tempers.”

The UK has one of the strictest prisons in the world and houses some of the most notorious prisons known worldwide such as Belmarsh and Wandsworth.

As at 30 September 2020 (the latest currently available results), across 13 prisons, Wandsworth picked up the highest number of offenders with all except Cancer taking the lead.

HM Wandsworth is a Category B men’s prison and one of the largest prisons in Europe and the largest in the UK with a capacity of 1,877.
