Which dystopia can you relate to most?

Whoever thought to put astrology and Netflix' Black Mirror Season 4 together? Well, we did.

Think about it — your personality traits have a lot to do with the types of content you're interested in watching, and also the kinds of fears you have — many of which play into the themes in this near-future dystopian anthology.

So looking to astrology and to your horoscope, it can make sense to assume that there are certain stories in this series that relate to specific zodiac signs.

Can you guess the which Black Mirror Season 4 episode will speak to you most?

This season of Black Mirror brings in a variety of concepts and wonky gadgets that could flip your life upside down. With this new set of 6 stories, the writers and actors stepped outside of their own boundaries and decided to do something different with each of the episodes  and succeeded exceptionally.

Look to this list (with no spoilers, we promise!) to see which story hits closest to home, according to astrology.


USS Callister

Black Mirror season 4 episode 1. As you may already know, Black Mirror is a gritty, dark show that could drive even the sanest people hysterical due to the simple question of, “What if?” However, the USS Callister episode incorporates light-hearted banter and builds an emotional connection with its supporting characters.

The cinematography flawlessly hints at what to expect and what you need to set your eyes on — and it showcases the negatives of life yet is so full of color and excitement. You can visibly see the switch from bleak to vibrant whenever Daly leaves and enters Infinity. This episode feels more like a full movie than an hour long episode and hints on themes found throughout the Black Mirror franchise — like the flaws in humanity and what could go wrong with futuristic technology — in a really unique way. 

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

Escaping from reality. You, Pisces, can relate to Robert Daly’s need to escape reality. You may have coworkers who bother you or loads of work that seem to never be truly finished. I’m sure you don’t have a need to act like a sociopath to your co-workers though... but taking a break from life by immersing yourself into a gaming system like Infinity probably sounds like a special treat (even if it does have consequences). 

AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

Raging against authority. You are like Nannette, Aquarius. Authority has no place in your world if they take advantage of you. So planning to fight back against an invincible, unjust god is right up your alley. You are the spirit of revolution and the voice of the lesser people. Bringing people together and leading them to freedom is in your nature. I know this episode fired up the feeling of creating an uprising in me. An uprising for what? I’m not entirely sure, but viva la revolución!

Arkangel

Black Mirror season 4 episode 2. This episode was cut and dry. What you see is what you get. But as this series always does, the simplicity makes it all the more plausible — this could really happen one day.

The family-focused scenes showing Marie play hide and seek with little Sarah gives you that warm, fuzzy feeling inside, making what happens next even more scary if you have children of your own. However, this episode does not take a simple story and guide it into doing a triple axel. No, this episode is almost like a car driving 55 on a highway with a speed limit of 55. It just feels... safe. It runs almost exactly how life would if you had a parental advisory camera implanted in you since you were born. But for some, it's exactly the kind of episode you can actually relate to — avoiding unrealistic technological advances and out-there storylines.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

Smother mother. As a Cancer, you love on your kids. But like Marie, you probably also invade your children’s privacy in an effort to try and protect them. This theme of overbearing parenting played a huge part in this storyline. But you may not even feel like it was an issue. You can see the positives in being your child’s guardian angel and making sure what they go through will not hurt them. Of course, everyone will not agree with you but who will love their children like you will? Look to this episode to give you a fresh perspective.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

Empty nest, empty life. Being alone is a genuine fear of yours. You want to feel loved for the good you do, which is similar to how the mother in this episode felt about her relationship with her own child. You could tell that Marie had a bigger issue with being alone than letting her child live her life. Of course, there is nothing wrong with not wanting to be alone. Just make sure you are not in the process of controlling others while you deal with that fear.

Black Mirror season 4 episode 3. What makes this story especially unique is that it places the emphasis on human flaws this episode and leaves futuristic technology in the back seat. The change of every scene is presented with HD photos of the quiet and surreal landscape. As the show rolls on, the snowfall grows heavier — signifying how hopeless the situation is becoming for the main character.

Mia Nolan, the antagonist, takes us on an emotional journey into the human mind and bears the question, "What would you do to keep your life together?" 

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

Always cover your tracks. Mia Nolan was surprisingly good at what she does throughout this episode. Almost too good. Virgo, you know how important it is to make sure everything stays on track in your life. Who knows what you could do if pushed to the limit — if something threatened the safety of your orderly life? It's surprisingly easy to see why the main character chooses the path she does in this thrilling story.

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

What feelings? Throughout the episode, Mia flawlessly switches between what looks to be multiple hidden lives or personalities. This is a gift that Gemini possesses — the ability to have two or more sides to themselves. Others may not be able to notice because these two separate sides can be entirely different, but this trait can bring you much closer to the character than you might think.

Hang the DJ

Black Mirror season 4 episode 4 is a surprisingly romantic story you might never expect from the famously dark series. Especially if you watched The Entire History of You (S1 E3) or San Junipero (S3 E4). No one dies. No one falls ill. This episode is a rom-com in its own right with a creepy technological twist.

Without giving too much away, the one thing I know is that if Tinder looks like this in the next decade, eHarmony is going to have to step its game up. 

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

All or nothing. Aries, you want perfection from your partner. Not in the sense of they can do no wrong but you want someone who gets you, who won’t intentionally hurt you and someone you can see yourself with years from now. If they can’t do that it’s time to move on to the next one. Or maybe you want nothing, maybe you want no emotions attached. It’s all or nothing for you, so this episode — full of high standards and boring relationships the characters so desperately want to escape — is right up your alley.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20)

Hopelessly romantic. Taurus, you want nothing more than to be loyal to your partner. So, knowing you will one day find the perfect partner for yourself is a dream. Sure, you may not enjoy having to experience multiple partners just to find this perfect match, but just the thought of knowing that one day, for certain, there is someone chosen specifically for you can make it worth the wait. Or is it?

Metalhead

Black Mirror season 4 episode 5 is a thrill ride that keeps you on the edge of your seat. Man against the machine is an age-old conflict that always reigns, and this story doesn't disappoint.

The monochromatic filming of Metalhead only provides an extra flair to the gritty, suspense-filled episode. Part horror movie, part action thriller, this surprisingly gruesome wild chase through a wasteland is concept reminiscent of a low-budget cult-classic. But Black Mirror spins it on its head and gives us another hour-long movie worthy of a special screening in an actual movie theater. 

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

Trimming the fat. Capricorn, you don’t need anything extra special to be satisfied. By taking out the color and putting the characters into a desolate wasteland you get a great episode without all of the bells and whistles — a simple, yet effective, story that gives you just enough. Just like you, you don’t need extra flair or pizazz to get your point across.

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

Family first. Leo, you see the importance of family and fulfilling promises. This helps you to relate to the main character more than anyone else — and being compassionate is what takes the main character across the wasteland in the first place. Sure, usually your compassion does not put you in a death match against a golden retriever robot, but knowing you, you wouldn't regret it. Your ability to solve problems on the fly and your strong desire to be back with your friends and family would be your saving grace.

Black Museum

Black Mirror season 4 episode 6. This last episode focuses on a museum of sadistically dark exhibits with strange, dark stories being told by its owner. There are some subtle nods to previous Black Mirror episodes if you can catch them.

Rolo Haynes, the museum's founder, helped provide the sinister atmosphere needed to make his retelling of the stories behind the exhibits even more haunting. This episode is a classic Black Mirror story that also seemed eerily like a farewell. This anthology of creepy stories work amazingly together to end the Black Mirror series with a bang.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

Pain and agony? Tell me more. I’m sure Rolo Haynes’ retelling of his autobiographical horror stories is what intrigues you the most, Scorpio. There are plenty of questions brought up throughout the episode you'll wish could be answered — your suspicious nature is bound to want to know more than meets the eye on this last story. Hopefully, Google can satisfy your desire for that extra truth that was not provided. 

SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

I’ve come down with wanderlust. Going on a road trip and stopping by some random, creepy museum seems like something that would be right up your alley. As a traveler and an explorer in more ways than one, trying new things is what's best about you. Seeing Nish curiously walk over to the museum will have you seeing a little bit of yourself. Or what you wish could be you.
