6 Otherworldy Zodiac Signs Who Come From Other Planets

They're cosmic.

"What do you do for a living?" was a question asked of David Bowie's character in The Man Who Fell to Earth. Bowie's response: "Oh, I'm just visiting." Implying that he is only visiting Earth, his character reaches us not only because we relate to the uniqueness of his circumstance, but also because we relate to the idea of being isolated, different, alone.

The irony of life is that we strive to be a part of a group, so that we can feel the love of community, family, friends. But often times, we end up feeling as Bowie did: "a visitor." Just passing through.


Astrology is based on planetary movement. Every zodiac sign is "ruled" by a cosmic force, and there is a planet associated with each sign. There are traits and aspects handed down to us that can be attributed to our zodiac sign — specifically, the otherworldly zodiac signs!

For instance, Aries is ruled by Mars, a somewhat hostile environment made of cold, red clay. Mars is notoriously the planet of war; the animal associated with Aries is the Ram, an animal known to push its way in wherever it goes. So, it goes to show that an Aries might feel somewhat... Martian at times, if we are to assume Mars is, indeed, a hostile planet.


But it goes deeper, doesn't it? Because we do feel the call, at times, to look above and spot out "our planet." It's not a rare thing to feel like maybe we are the result of some spore takeover that happened zillions of years ago, and maybe, just maybe, we are being told (in interplanetary code, of course) to phone home.

1. AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

It's hard to like you, Aquarius, and that's probably because you isolate yourself to the point of exclusivity. You come across as a snob, but that's not true! You're not the judgmental snotbag we've all come to know and love, no!

You're just a perfect ambassador for the Aquarian planet, Uranus, which rules snobbery and elitism. And we've all come to know that anything that comes from Uranus has to stink.

2. GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

You call out to your home planet of Mercury, though you do it in secret language. Funny thing about that secret language: it's the same language you use on Earth, which basically means you are inept at communicating.

Another of the interplanetary ironies, Mercury, which rules communication, leaves you bereft of the ability to speak. You say the wrong things just about all the time; you just can't help it. Go back to Mercury.

3. VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

You've never felt comfortable with your life, and it's probably because you're from another planet. This whole "human" thing is so beneath you. Your home planet of Venus calls you and you respond by letting them know you have no intention of blending in with the mortals.


You are a supreme alien, and if you must bide your time on Earth, you do it in full knowledge of your superiority to the human race.

4. SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

It's so very obvious that you hail from the planet Jupiter, because everything you do is immense and expansive. Sagittarius thinking is not restricted to mere Earth knowledge. You know things, as they say. You may not "drink and know things," but you feel things deeply.

Your planet helps you to see the bigger picture in everything you do. The Centaur, an already strange enough creature, is your representative. Your arrow aims for the stars, and your perfect focus gets you your target every time.

5. CANCER (June 21 - July 22)

You're the one they talk about when they say the word "Airhead." You are so spaced-out and cosmic that, on the occasion you come out of your yogic trance, you like to stand naked beneath the light of the full moon.

You are a natural witch and your cosmic force, The Moon, backs you in mystery and intuition. You're always the first one to gaze at the sky, looking for the moon, and you're always the last one to go to sleep at night. You tuck in when the sun rises. How very moon of you!

6. ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

Without a doubt, you are a space invader. You feel the call so strongly to the Mother planet of Mars that you are rarely seen NOT wearing the color red. You refuse to be called a Martian, as you find that derogatory and stereotypical.

You are not a Martian! You are a representative of the planet Mars, and if you are to be addressed as anything, it's "Boss."
