Your Next Netflix Binge – Based on Your Zodiac Sign

Since COVID-19 is still hanging around, you may be scraping the bottom of your once extensive watchlist. I have watched more tv than I thought possible, and the shows I planned on watching slowly were consumed in the matter of days. Or day, for some, since I watched all of Netflix’s Hollywood in one sitting. Yeah, that one is definitely on this list.

This list is compiled of tv show suggestions based on your zodiac sign. If you’ve already watched your suggested show, make sure to check out the others! Especially your Moon and Rising Zodiac signs! If you don’t know what those are, learn about them here.

I have personally devoured each one of these shows and can attest that they live up to their hype. Although some may be in the same genre, they are all extremely unique. These can be found on Netflix, and some may also be viewed from other platforms.

Aries (March 21-April 19)

The Witcher

Geralt of Rivia is competitive, tireless, and doesn’t like to be told what to do. Sound familiar, Aries? The Witcher, Geralt, is a leader anyone would be drawn towards. Aries will understand Geralt’s impulsivity, quick thinking, and leadership attributes because they are similar to your own. The extensive battle scenes are sure to give Aries the action they are looking for. Kingdoms, war, mythical beasts, magic, and Henry Cavill… the show is a call to Aries everywhere.

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

New Girl

Don’t worry Taurus, this show will give you everything you need! New Girl juggles dating, friendships, and family without skimping on humor or heartwarming moments. You will sympathize with Schmidt’s love of material items and won’t be bothered by Jess’s singing. As always, patience is important, especially with fan-favorite Nick Miller. Highly relatable with just enough awkwardness, these characters will soon feel like your own friends.

p.s. There are tutorials of True American online!

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

The Good Place

The Good Place is lighthearted and funny, perfect for Gemini‘s mischievous side. With episodes that are less than 30 minutes long, the fast paced storytelling is sure to keep your attention. Focused on the relationship between 6 different characters, Geminis will be engulfed in the constant communication and banter. Your curiosity will have you pressing “play next episode” quicker than you expected. Make sure you don’t have a deadline coming up before you start this one!

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Charmed

Family is everything to a Cancer, as it is to the Charmed sisters. Cancers are passionate about protecting the ones that they love. They can be quiet and shy, but when it comes to the safety of their loved ones they will be bold and courageous. This corresponds flawlessly to the nature of Mel, Maggie, and Macy. In a world that is increasingly dangerous, they will do anything for their sisters.

Bonus: If this leaves you wanting more, check out the original Charmed, also on Netflix!

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Jane the Virgin

Leos will love the elaborate storyline and creativity. Jane the Virgin’s telenovela style, and its many twists and turns, gives a larger-than-life feel to their world. Anything can happen in Jane the Virgin, the show itself starts with Jane, unknowingly, being artificially inseminated! The rollercoaster of plot twists will leave you on the edge of your seat, asking “what’s next?”

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Sherlock

Virgos have a critical point of view and are obsessed with detail, similar to Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock. Both Sherlock and Watson will appeal to a Virgo. Sherlock’s appeal lies in his problem solving skills and attention to detail; Watson’s lie in his servitude and loyalty to his loved ones. The two characters embody two parts of the Virgo personality, attributing to its irresistibility with the analyzers.

Libra (September 23-October 22)

Reign

Romance, betrayal, and French Court; I needn’t say more! Reign, the historical drama, has it all: royalty, friendships, love affairs, politics, sword fights, and even a seer. Libras thrive on balance and harmony, so you will love that the story gives a little bit of everything. Reign’s costumes, sets, and cast are beautiful and will surely hold a Libra’s attention.

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

You

Quiet, sensitive, and secretive, Scorpios will immediately obsess over Netflix Original You. It follows Joe’s relationships and the lengths he will go to show someone he loves them. Scorpio’s have the ability to see the good and the bad in people; its likely that Scorpios will enjoy analyzing Joe’s actions, trying to decipher whether he is good or evil. How far would you go to show someone you loved them? And what happens when you go too far?

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

The Magicians

Get ready to dive deep into The Magicians, packed with creatures, magic, and mythology. The ever-changing settings, in our own world or another, will calm the Sagittarius‘s wanderlust feelings. As a Sagittarius you will enjoy learning about each character’s powers and struggles, how they differ from one another, and their journey as characters (both inwardly and outwardly). Add never-ending comedy, and you have the perfect show recipe for a Sagittarius!

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

How to Get Away with Murder

Capricorns are self-disciplined, hardworking, and tactful, much like Annalise Keating herself. How to Get Away with Murder follows lawyer and proffessor, Annalise Keating, and a group of her students through a series of missing persons and murders. The web of lies she must spin to keep herself and her loved ones safe may seem daunting to some, but a Capricorn will be compelled to see just how she does it. A Capricorn will relate to Keating’s leadership skills and perseverance; understanding that, like them, she will do anything to achieve her goals.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

Hollywood

Aquariuses are humanitarians with an overwhelming desire to help others. You probably understand the importance of equality and why equal representation in Hollywood is crucial. Netflix’s historical drama, Hollywood, shows the struggle of “making it” in Hollywood from different perspectives. Your empathetic ability to put yourself in others shoes will allow you to experience their highs and lows as if you were there. Don’t worry Aquarius, the lows don’t drag on forever. It is an emotional ride, in which you may exit with a new perspective and love for 40’s fashion.

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Once Upon a Time

The daydreaming Pisces will enjoy watching the beloved fairytales come to life in modern day. The long running series, Once Upon a Time, will allow time for Pisces to become devoted to their favorites and invest in their story. Full of magic and myth, Pisces will relish in the chance to see the worlds they wished for as children be brought to life. Underneath the pixie dust there are real-world struggles being navigated, like co-parenting, emerging and toxic relationships, and forgiveness.

Did you find your new obsession?

I’m always free to chat about shows or movies if you find yourself in need of more suggestions. Read a book, watch new cinema, start another craft, or learn to bake something else! Staying safe is most important, I hope you and yours are well! Thanks for reading!
