The REAL Reason Everyone Thinks You're Strange, Based On Your Zodiac Sign

why you are strange
Zodiac, Self

Strange can be good. But it can also be bad.

People are strange and that includes you! Look, no matter how normal you may appear, everyone knows you have a little bit of a freak in you — maybe more than a little bit.

You’re kind of a weirdo, a dork, a geek but don’t worry — so are the rest of us. As humans, we’ve all got our secret or not-so-secret freaky sides. We like things that are out of the ordinary and we do things in ways that are unique to us.


You can pass for Ms. Universe — heck, you could even be Ms. Universe! — but you still have some kind of strange habit, odd way of doing things, or a bizarre taste. You might as well embrace your unconventional ways as fighting them is pointless.

When you celebrate your unusual quirks and habits, you become more comfortable with them and denying them doesn’t get you anywhere. No single person is the same and that’s a good thing because it keeps things interesting. Sure, when you were growing up, you wanted to be like everyone else but you probably failed on some level, no matter how much you appeared to fit in.

Once you became an adult, you learned that indulging in your strangeness (if it’s not against the law or hurts anybody) is cool and empowering. Your uniqueness is what helps you get that perfect job and that wonderful partner because it’s what makes you special.

If your childhood fear was that everyone would know that your family wasn’t normal or that you were a weirdo, then that fear has come true. And guess what? The world didn’t spin off its axis and life continued.


We’re all eccentric, peculiar souls trying to make our way in the world without screwing up too badly, but for all our weirdness, we’re still magical, wonderful, and spectacular beings. Here’s why you are strange, according to your zodiac sign.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Some of your ideas can be pretty out there, but the way that you try to communicate how awesome they are is impressive. You have tunnel vision when it comes to pursuing your goals and you tend to take the phrase "by any means possible" literally. It's also strange how you seem to have no concept of what "no" or "you can't do that" means.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

There's no easy way to put this but you have some hoarding tendencies. You like your possessions and it's very difficult for you to part from something that has a memory association for you. It's not that you have a million cats, it's more like you still have the dress you wore for prom or the chipped vase your grandmother gave you. You could have a fantastic garage sale, make some money, and buy some new stuff.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You've got that split-personality thing going on so one never knows which side of you they are going to get. One moment, you're a shy homebody who just wants to kick it at home and the next, you want to non-stop party. It can be confusing to those who know and love you. It would be one thing if these two sides were integrated in some way, but they tend to be completely opposite. On the plus side, you're never boring and it's as if you're two fascinating people instead of one.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

It's weird what things will set you off. You cry at seeing old Christmas tree in the gutter and need to take a personal day when your favorite TV show comes to an end. You feel things so deeply and you tend to go on a little too long telling random stories that happened to friends of friends. It's almost as if you get high off emotion and need a fix even when your life is going well.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

It's bizarre how much you need attention. If you're not in the spotlight do you feel as if you don't exist? You're constantly humblebragging on social media, talking about sex in highly inappropriate places, and being the first one to volunteer to ride the mechanical bull. You're never not on and if you're inebriated, then it just gets turned up even more.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You're strange in your obsession to details. If someone refers to your cat as a he and they're a she, you'll keep correcting them and anybody else who makes that mistake. You just won't let up. You read into things when there's no secret message or hidden agenda there at all. You think you're diligent but you're really just peculiar.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 2)

You feel completely justified in indulging your every desire and whim. No one needs to tell you to practice self-care because you're already doing it 24/7. You love yourself to the point of obsession and absolutely can't handle it when everybody doesn't love you, too. You have a lot of friends but it's rarely enough. You want praise, presents, and anything that will make you happy. You're the spoiled child of the zodiac.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

While you have a definite set of values, they're just unlike anyone else's. If someone disrespects you or does something you don't like, you're quick to plot your revenge. It may not be immediate but it will cause pain. It's hard for people to know if they really know you because you can be secretive to the extreme.

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

You're all about YOLO to the point of acting irrationally, irresponsibly, and somewhat foolishly. You feel cheated if you don't try the monkey balls offered to you or if you miss a chance at biking Death's Road in Bolivia. You're an adrenaline junkie and coupled with your inattention to dangerous details it is ridiculous.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

For all your focus on business and work, you have a very freaky sexual side. There's hardly anything you won't try. It's a good thing that you're so uninhibited when you're having sex because it gives you a chance to blow off steam. You rarely take a vacation, so if sex lets you loosen up, then it's a good thing.

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

You're happy-go-lucky most of the time... that is, until you perceive some kind of slight. You don't take kindly to attitude and for your easy-going personality, you're the first one to ask to see the manager or write a letter of complaint. Watch out: if there's a bank error or someone forgot your birthday, you can go ballistic.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

You're quirky in the way you care about and have empathy for others. You'll do whatever you can to help someone or to brighten their day. You remember all important occasions and, usually, make a small gift or card to help celebrate it. You're the barista who gives the sad looking customer a free coffee or the artist who uses their art as a way to brighten the world.
