ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr 19): PRIVATE PRACTICE

As a fire sign, Aries are courageous, determined, confident and up for a challenge, so you’ll relate hard to Addison Montgomery in Private Practice. A spinoff of Grey’s Anatomy, this show follows the neonatal surgeon as she ditches her chaotic life at Seattle Grace and plants new roots at Seaside Health & Wellness Center in Malibu. Because it’s another Shonda Rhimes production, expect all the melodrama, cliff hangers and romantic ties as any of her other shows.

Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20): SELLING SUNSET

While Taureans are known to be patient, with a strong affinity for consistency, they are also known for their deep appreciation for the finer things in life. Selling Sunset is the best choice since it follows a group of high-end real estate brokers as they market some of the most opulent homes in Los Angeles. Between the lavish mansions, fancy cars and expensive shoes Selling Sunset hits just the right note for you.

Gemini (May 21 - Jun 20): THE PARKERS

Fun. Quick-witted. Energetic. Are we describing you, Gemini, or Nikki and Kim Parker, as played by Monique and Countess Vaughn? This hilarious and heartfelt series chronicles the adventures of Nikki and Kim as they navigate their relationships as mother and daughter, as well as college mates. They are the yin to each other’s yang, mirroring your own propensity toward duality.

Cancer (Jun 21 - Jul 22): GREENLEAF

You’re nurturing, sensitive and family-oriented, so this Memphis-set church drama is just your speed. On the surface, the Greenleaf family seems to have it all—a widely successful ministry with dedicated members, close family ties with children and grandchildren to boot, and a sprawling mansion where they can all reside without getting in each other’s way. However, as skeletons begin crawling out of the closet, the family starts to unravel and their loyalty to each other is tested.

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22): BRIDGERTON

Passionate, energetic and spotlight-loving Leos will burn for this binge-worthy series that has taken the rest of us by storm. Set in Regency era England, the Netflix original chronicles Daphne Bridgerton’s epic journey to womanhood. Between the music, the costumes, the hair and makeup, it’s a lot—in a good way.

Virgo (Aug 23 - Sept 22): NADIYA BAKES

As an unflinching perfectionist, you’re always looking for different ways to get things done. This easy-to-digest show starring the Great British Baking Show’s season six winner, Nadiya Hussain, showcases her undying love for baking. Hussain is a renowned perfectionist herself (see her season of GBBS) so all the Virgos out there should feel right at home.

Libra (Sept 23 - Oct 22): SCHITT’S CREEK

In addition to their sense of justice, Libras are known for their sense of humor. This witty series follows the Rose family as they go from riches to rags to riches again. There are tons of wigs, epic love stories, and straight forward humor, so you don’t even have to rake your head to get in on the joke. On top of all that, it’s super charming—just like you.

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21): MONEY HEIST

Scorpios are intense, mysterious, resourceful and when scorned, can be quite vengeful—so you will definitely relate to the main character in this series. Money Heist is about a group of carefully selected thieves who band together to attempt the biggest heist in the history of Spain. Led by a mysterious figure known simply as The Professor, this group of bandits takes hostages as leverage in order to achieve their goal.

Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21): PATRIOT ACT

As much as you love to laugh, Sagittarius, you love to examine the human condition, so Patriot Act is the one for you. Helmed by Hassan Minhaj, the show tackles the political commentary we’ve grown to love from Stephen Colbert and John Stewart, except it’s from a millennial’s lens. But don’t let Minhaj’s sweater and Jordan’s combo fool you: The show—while laugh-out-loud funny—handles heavy topics like obesity, fast fashion and mental health.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19): THE QUEEN’S GAMBIT

Capricorns are typically pretty serious, and your disciplined nature will appreciate Beth’s sheer tenacity to break the chess world’s glass ceiling. In addition to drug and alcohol dependency, she has to overcome a myriad of emotional hurdles, but this champion is steadfast and laser-focused on her goal—a trait Capricorns are all too familiar with.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18): NEVER HAVE I EVER

This hilarious offering follows Devi, an overachieving high school sophomore, as she tries to navigate life as a first-generation Indian American teenage girl. Created by the always clever Mindy Kaling, Never Have I Ever is eccentric, unpredictable and smart—just like you are.

PISCES (Feb 19 - Mar 20): GLEE

A creative, romantic musical with just the right amount of nostalgia, empathic, arty Pisces will find a lot to love in the delight that is Glee. With all six seasons available to stream on Netflix, take a look at the megahit show that catapulted Lea Michelle, Amber Riley as well as Chris Colfer into superstardom.
