The Netflix Show You Should Watch, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
Choosing a show on Netflix can be daunting—there are so many damn options. Instead of mindlessly scrolling through titles for an hour before settling on a show you’ve already seen, narrow down your choices by watching something that lines up with your star sign.
Aquarius: The End of the F***ing World
Based on a graphic novel of the same name, this dark, British comedy-drama follows a 17-year-old who thinks he’s a psychopath, and his rebellious classmate looking to escape from her tumultuous home life. It’s eccentric, unpredictable and smart—just like you are.
Pisces: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
Creative, romantic and musical, the Pisces gal will find a lot to love in Rachel Bloom’s series about a Harvard- and Yale-educated lawyer who decides to leave New York and relocate to an L.A. suburb and embark on a quest for love and happiness. Your compassionate side will root for Bloom’s character, while your artsy side will delight in the frequent musical numbers.
Aries: Grey's Anatomy
As a fire sign, Aries are courageous, determined, confident and up for a challenge. Long-running Grey’s Anatomy is about doctors at a hospital in Seattle trying to thrive at work while maintaining personal lives and relationships. Is it occasionally melodramatic? Sure, but that just means there are more problems for you to pretend-solve in your head.
Taurus: Russian Doll
Taurus ladies are patient and value consistency. Natasha Lyonne’s excellent Netflix original, which follows a woman who repeatedly dies and relives the same night in an ongoing time loop, appeals to both of those sensibilities.
Gemini: Grace & Frankie
Fun. Quick-witted. Energetic. Are we describing you, Gemini, or Grace and Frankie, as played by Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin? This funny and heartfelt series is about two women who forge an unlikely friendship after their husbands announce that they are in love with each other and plan to get married. Grace and Frankie are the yin to each other’s yang, mirroring your own propensity toward duality.
Cancer: Friday Night Lights
You’re nurturing, sensitive and family-oriented. This Texas-set drama (which ran through 2011 but has endless re-watch potential) is just your speed. About a high school football coach and his family living in a small town, it can get very emotional. Plus, it’s got the glorious Connie Britton, whose character Tami Taylor’s sense of loyalty rivals yours.
Your life motto? The flashier the better. Passionate, energetic and spotlight-loving Leos will go nuts over this series about the 1980s syndicated women's professional wrestling circuit in Los Angeles. Between the music (think: Pat Benatar and the Go-Go’s), the costumes and the hair and makeup, it’s a lot—in a good way.
Virgo: Tidying Up with Marie Kondo
As an unflinching perfectionist, your idea of happiness is coming home to a spotless living space. Marie Kondo’s show follows the organizing guru and creator of the KonMari method, as she visits families to help them get their homes in shape. It’s organization porn at its finest. So soothing.
Libra: The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
In addition to their sense of justice, Libras are known for their sense of humor. This Tina Fey-created series about a woman (Ellie Kemper) adjusting to life in New York City after being rescued from a doomsday cult appeals to both, thanks to silly story lines and Kimmy’s wide-eyed optimism and crystal-clear sense of right and wrong. On top of all that, it’s super charming—just like you.
Scorpio: Black Mirror
Can you say intense? Scorpios are mysterious creatures known for their bravery, resourcefulness and secrecy. Black Mirror, a British science fiction anthology series, examines modern society in relation to the unanticipated consequences of new technologies and is just as impressive and ambitious as you are.
Sagittarius: Bojack Horseman
As much as you love to laugh, Sagittarius, you love to examine the human condition. Bojack Horseman may be an animated series about an anthropomorphic horse (voiced by Will Arnett), but don’t let the cute cartoons fool you: The show—while laugh-out-loud funny—handles heavy topics like depression, addiction and world weariness.
Capricorn: Sex Education
Capricorns are typically pretty serious, but your disciplined nature belies an appreciation for smart humor. Enter Sex Education: This British series is about an awkward teenager, Otis. He’s ambivalent about sex, despite his sex-positive, sex therapist mother (played by the fantastic Gillian Anderson), but eventually sets up a sex advice business with a confident but vulnerable classmate. Wise-beyond-their-years teens? Relatable.
