Book Review: The Astrology of Serial Killers

Title: The Astrology of Serial Killers (Volume 1)

Author: Rhys Navarro

Narrator: Kevin Kollins



What turns a person into a serial killer? Is it possible their dark destiny was foretold in the stars? This audiobook provides the background stories and driving forces behind 24 of the most notorious true crime serial killers of the previous century, including Jeffrey Dahmer, John Wayne Gacy, Charles Manson, and Richard Ramirez.

But that’s not all! It also includes breakdowns of the natal charts for each killer, analyzed with astrological pointers to their crime sprees. Could their descent into depravity have been recognized and perhaps diverted before they turned to a life of murder? Some of the results may surprise you.

My Review

5/5 Stars

As someone who is interested in both astrology and the minds of serial killers, I found this collection to be particularly interesting. There’s a good opening section that explains astrology for those who are unfamiliar, which helps later on when explaining things such as rising and falling signs. Under each zodiac, two to three serial killers are discussed. I like the way that the author gave not only some information on the killer, but also a short biography, before comparing it to their birth chart. It was interesting to see just how many of the traits applied to the killers. All in all, a different aspect of true crime for those who are interested in dipping their toes.

Narration fit the material perfectly.This book was given to me for free at my request, and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
