How Weird Each Zodiac Sign Is, Ranked From Most To Least 'Normal'

zodiac signs how weird are you astrology

Some people are weird, and others are even weirder than their seemingly "normal" friends. Being the weirdest member of a group doesn't mean you're not beautiful, it means you're unique.

In addition to being described as amazing and beautiful by my friends and family, I can probably guess that they would also call me weird — which I would attribute directly to my zodiac sign, Aquarius.

People — like me — are described as weird for a lot of different reasons, mainly because “weird” is a word that has a lot of different meaning.

One of the most common reasons being that someone is just funny or quirky in a weird way; you like things a certain way and if people don’t like the fact that you put your socks in order by color, well then they can just call you strange. Another reason why people tend to be described as weird because they’re not always all there if you get what I mean.

Maybe they had an especially long experimental phase in college or they’ve just been that kooky kid since kindergarten, but I guess when you’re weird you do weird things. You’re kind of always weird, you know what I mean?

Ever asked yourself, "Am I normal?" We've all been there. I know, without sharing the most embarrassing parts of my childhood (which were all the time, by the way — I’m a very embarrassing person), that I have probably always been that weird kid.

And, of course, being an Aquarius probably helps me out a lot with that eccentric personality.

But, I like being weird. It means I don’t always have to explain why I do the strange things I do every time I do them – expect to my mom who, for who knows what reason at this point, is always looking at me with curiosity. I’m allowed to be weird, mom, stop looking at me like that.

But even as someone who is totally, utterly weird sometimes, I can still notice when others are quirky, too – probably because of the thing I said earlier about everyone being weird for different reasons.

All in all, I think being weird is what makes people unique and creative. Think of it this way: all of the artists and musicians and celebrities who are considered weird have probably made an impact on the world (and you), right?

Even if it wasn’t always for a good reason — like Charlie Sheen — you definitely remember them, even if you end your sentences about them with, “That was totally weird of him, wasn’t it?”

My point is, I think you should always let your freak flag fly because that’s what makes you, you – even if not everyone can handle you. Of course, you might be more receptive to other people’s freaky weirdness if you yourself are a little odd, too.

Not only do I welcome my fellow Aquarians to be their strange selves, but any other zodiac sign who wants to, too.

Of course, not all zodiac signs feel the same way. And depending on what your horoscope says about you, you might just be one of those people who either doesn't like being weird or just isn't weird in the slightest (which is fine, too).

But don’t just take it from me — keep reading to find out how weird you are, based on astrology.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

Aquarius Astrology, Zodiac Signs, Weirdest

Surprise, surprise, Aquarius is at the top of this list. And unlike all of the other signs who are weirder than the rest, there really isn’t any reason why she is the way she is; she’s just a weirdo and she likes it like that.

Yes, Aquarius is the weirdest zodiac sign there is, but she isn’t shy about it. She knows that her interests and quirks are going to get a few side-eye glances every now and then, so she might as well just not care at all.

If anyone can own her weirdness, it’s Aquarius. Sometimes, she even uses the fact that people find her so strange to her advantage. No one questions her when she buys more crystals to “balance her energy” or bats an eye when she goes on a rant about how Bigfoot is actually a cute guy with crazy hair she met at a party once, not a myth. None of what she says actually has to make sense because, at this point, everyone is used to it.

SCORPIO (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

Scorpio Astrology, Zodiac Signs, Weirdest

Scorpio isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, which is why she’s so high on the “weirdness” scale. It doesn’t even matter if you know her very well or not — she’s just strange, and the lengths she goes to convince you that she’s not only solidifies her strange behavior.

Scorpio has a very intense personality that’s best in short doses, but even then, she’s very out there. She’ll often start fights and arguments she can’t win just to make things more interesting.

She’s also the type of person to share stories of things that can’t have possibly happened to her, yet at the same time sound totally convincing coming from her. It’s not that she stretches the truth — lying isn’t Scorpio’s thing.

She’s just the type of person to get herself into totally weird situations. She’s the kooky girl that somehow fits in with every group at parties and gatherings despite how out-of-this-world she is.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

Gemini Astrology, Zodiac Signs, Weirdest

If anyone can make delusional look normal, it’s Gemini. There’s something about her being so off-the-wall and paranoid all the time that everyone agrees that it’s just Gemini. You don’t always see this side of her, thanks to the duality of her personality, but it’s there all the same.

In addition to the two sides of Gemini’s personality, there are also two sides to her weird side. Sometimes, she can act totally neurotic, which usually leads to her babbling about crazy topics.

Other times, she can just be the awkward wallflower all of her friends know and love. Think of it this way: Just like Gemini can be indecisive about pretty much everything, so can her personality — which only adds to her weirdness.

PISCES (Feb 19 - Mar 20)

Pisces Astrology, Zodiac Signs, Weirdest

You know that person who acts like they’ve smoked wayyy too much (like Leo from That 70’s Show) or the one who always has their head in the clouds it’s impossible to tell if they actually know what’s going on IRL or not (like Luna Lovegood from Harry Potter)?

Yeah, that’s Pisces, all rolled into one weird person. Her eccentric personality definitely raises a few eyebrows, but no one is completely sure she actually knows she’s weird.

If she knows that people find her weird and unusual, she certainly doesn’t show it – or doesn’t care. Pisces lives in her own little world where she only cares about living life the way she wants.

People tend to find her weird because she never seems like she’s totally there, if you get what I mean. Her head is constantly in the clouds and she always has a dreamy expression on her face. *Knock, knock* anyone up there, Pisces?

TAURUS (Apr 20 - May 20)

Taurus Astrology, Zodiac Signs, Weirdest

Taurus might not seem all that weird to everyone but her closest friends, but she’s got quite a few odd personality traits hidden deep inside of that normal-seeming outer layer.

It’s not so much that she’s totally out there like some of the other signs, but more that she’s just plain quirky. If you don’t already know her like the back of your own hand, then she can seem like a total oddball.

Taurus like her pillow and blanket to face the same way when she sleeps, she has to put her shoes on before her jacket when she gets dressed, and when she drizzles maple syrup on her pancakes, she has to do it a certain way or her whole breakfast is ruined. See?

Definitely not conspiracy-theory bad, but still unquestionably weird. And don’t even think about asking her about her quirks because she’ll insist she has no idea what you mean.

VIRGO (Aug 23 - Sep 22)

Virgo Astrology, Zodiac Signs, Weirdest

Virgo is the type of person that makes you go from, “Nah, there’s no way she’s weird,” to, “How did I not see that before?!” The only reason you don’t usually see her quirky side at first is that she’s very good at hiding it.

And it’s not that she’s embarrassed of being a little weird, it’s just that all of her strange behavior is incredibly subtle. You definitely need to be around her for a while before you see it.

One of Virgo’s weirdest behavior is how obsessive she can be. She has to have the same routine every day (including folding her clothes the same way and stacking her books in the same order) otherwise her whole equilibrium gets thrown off.

Attribute that to her methodical approach to pretty much everything in life if you want, but you can’t deny that it’s still totally strange to watch her micromanage her makeup brushes until she’s satisfied.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer Astrology, Zodiac Signs, Weirdest

Being suspicious isn’t all that bad; in fact, it can be pretty smart in some situations. But Cancer just takes it wayyy too far. Why? Because she’s suspicious about EVERYTHING, which is just so beyond weird.

It doesn’t matter if it’s about food, a friend of a friend, or a city she’s probably never been to — she has a story about it and a list of reasons why said thing has sketchy written all over it.

Cancer is also the type of person who gets sucked into the WebMD universe (among other websites) and has to be reminded that no, she doesn’t have that weird illness that only happens to two out of a billion people.

Honestly, it’s exhausting to see how fast her mind works and what she thinks about on a constant basis. Cancer is a total worrywart and her suspicions only make her strange behavior that much worse.

CAPRICORN (Dec 20 - Jan 19)

Capricorn Astrology, Zodiac Signs, Weirdest

Capricorn doesn’t seem all that weird, but it’s her overly honest personality and no-filter mouth that makes her seem way kookier than she is. She’s the type of friend to ask you if you can look at the weird mole on her butt and if she has any boogers in her nose or food in her teeth before talking to a cute guy.

Oh, and she asks you these things when you least expect it, which makes it all the more bizarre. Luckily for her, she hides it very well (chalk it up to her constant good behavior in public).

So, while she’s prone to showing you that mole when you’re trying to get ready to go out to dinner, she isn’t going to state it out loud in the middle of the mall she has a little more tact than that. But it doesn’t change the fact that her overly honest behavior is something that can often be described as downright odd.

LIBRA (Sept 23 - Oct 22)

Libra Astrology, Zodiac Signs, Weirdest

Libra likes doing her own thing and being her own person, even if that means seeming a little out of the ordinary at times. But even if people think of her as different and nonconforming, she doesn’t care; all she wants to be is Libra.

But even she doesn’t conform to anyone standards, it doesn’t really make her weird. She tends to have a grasp on her personality enough that her “unconventional” ways don’t draw any attention to herself.

It might seem… well, weird to not want to be considered weird by her friends and family — especially if she claims that she doesn’t want to be like everyone else — but for Libra, it makes sense.

She can be very shy and reserved at times (unless she’s around her BFFs), so not wanting to draw any extra attention to herself, like some other weird signs do, is just Libra being Libra. Unfortunately, that means she’s not as “different” as she thinks she is.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 - Dec 19)

Sagittarius Astrology, Zodiac Signs, Weirdest

Sagittarius is one of the least weird signs for one very big reason: she’s adaptable. She’s like a social chameleon, which means she blends into any situation and group of people she’s with — making it impossible for anyone to label her the odd one out.

It’s not that she doesn’t have an in-your-face personality — because, let’s face it, Sagittarius is no wallflower — but more so that she can get comfortable in any situation and make friends with everyone.

Sagittarius is usually described as electric, bubbly, and outgoing, but no one can realistically call her weird – it just doesn’t happen. Sure, she stands out, but not in a way that makes people she’s anything but classic Sagittarius.

This is great if you want to fit in with everyone you meet, but it can also be a bit boring to just be another cookie-cutter personality, don’t you think, Sagittarius?

ARIES (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

Aries Astrology, Zodiac Signs, Weirdest

To Aries, weird and strange are words that are synonymous with awkward — something she doesn’t want to be called. She’s a very confident person who doesn’t feel like she has to fall back on a quirky personality to make people like her or to stand out. C’mon, it’s Aries, she stands out without even trying.

Aries is also very serious, which means being eccentric and “different” is something she doesn’t really have time for. Sure, she likes to have fun, but she isn’t the goofy type — she’s more of a “grown-up fun” type of person instead of a “teenager fun” type.

And to her, part of growing up is shedding that awkward, weird personality that might have helped you get through some of your already-awkward teen years. Adulthood, meet Aries.

LEO (July 23 - Aug 22)

Leo Astrology, Zodiac Signs, Weirdest

To Leo, being weird is a sign of immaturity. If anyone likes being totally individual and sometimes off-the-wall, it’s the Queen of Drama (AKA Leo), but she believes that there is a difference between being yourself and being an oddball.

When you let yourself be exactly who you are, it means letting your personality age like you. When you’re crazy just for the hell of it, you kind of lose the maturity you should already have.

Leo wants to be known as a leader and she knows that a weird personality isn’t going to get her to that Queen Bee status she yearns for. Of course, when she’s with her closest friends, she likes to let loose a little bit, but that’s a rare occurrence.

It’s not that Leo is a prude or reserved (at all) when it comes to getting wild, but she’s adamant about not letting people assume that she’s anything less than a confident lioness.
