Aries: March 21-April 19 – The Romantic Goth
When an Aries enters the room, their presence is immediately known. Ruled by the planet Mars, this Fire sign is highly energetic. Ariens are doers, always taking action, sometimes before planning things out – much to Taurus’s chagrin.
It’s obvious, then, that Ariens are romantic goths, driven by themes of love and the afterlife. They’re attracted to accessories with red or black roses, full moons, cemeteries, and skulls. Romantic goths are emotional people; they typically incorporate red wine and purple colors into their outfits. You might find a romantic goth wearing lace gloves, a veil, and smoky-eyed makeup.
Taurus: April 20-May 20 – The Emo Goth
Let’s be real. If you’re a Taurus, you probably spend a lot of time brooding. You may have thought casually about wearing eyeliner or dark nail polish in high school. Maybe you went to prom listening to Panic! at the Disco.
Either way, you definitely had a marked interest in all things melancholy, including skulls, bats, and riveted accessories. You may have also slipped on Converse shoes and sported piercings. That’s why you’re the perfect emo goth.
Gemini: May 21-June 20 – The Steampunk Goth
Geminis have two-sided personalities. Often described as outgoing, communicative, and affable, they can turn on a dime, becoming pensive and self-serious. Depending on the time of day and nature of their circumstances, you never know what side of Gemini you’ll get. That’s why they’re the perfect candidates for the steampunk goth, a whimsical hybrid of cyber goth and Victorian goth.
These goths may have a penchant for Victorian science fiction. Purveyors of this gothic style typically create their own accessories. Expect steampunks to sport copper colors, corsets, aviator sunnies, suspenders, gloves, and bracelets.
Cancer: June 21-July 22 – The Lolita Goth
We all know Cancers can be sentimental. Some have characterized them as insecure; others call them heavily emotional. Whatever their descriptors, Cancers are known for their empathy; they frequently take on other people’s pain. It might seem odd to call them “Lolita goths,” but if you’ve ever known a Cancer, you’ll definitely understand the connection.
Originally born in Japan, the Lolita trend combines the Victorian and romantic goth aesthetics – and is popular among younger-skewing goths. These goths frequently carry big umbrellas, stuffed animals, puffed dresses and dolls. Who knew gothic fashion could be so cute yet creepy?
Leo: July 23-August 22 – The Gothabilly
Leos are known for being simply irresistible. They’re natural born leaders who often crave the spotlight – and they’re a Fire sign, which makes them creative, passionate and instinctual. That’s why Leo is the perfect candidate for the gothabilly.
Gothabillies love retro clothes and accessories, tattoos, pencil skirts, A-line dressed, and striped or polka dot patterns. Let Leos loose with square fringes, bright red lipstick, and leather jackets.
Virgo: August 23-September 22 – The Rivethead
Are you detail-oriented? Closed off to the outer world? If so, you’re likely a Virgo, and your approach to life leaves nothing to chance. You’re often misunderstood; you don’t see your feelings as relevant. When you walk through life, it’s as if you’re experiencing things for the first time. This is why you’re clearly an industrial goth.
These folks are beneficiaries of the punk movement. Their spikey hair is usually paired with trench coats, ripped jeans, straps, Dr. Martens boots, and big buckle belts. The fashion usually includes large doses of monochrome black, studs, rivets, chains, and a certain military bent that’s there to make you just the right amount of uncomfortable.
Libra: September 23-October 22 – The Vampire Goth
There’s a reason Libras always hate being alone. Given their strong interest in balance and symmetry, they cling to partnership. Through their experiences, they often come to the realization that their inner personality – perhaps the side they hide from the world – is what makes them unique.
Some say it’s because they like to keep the peace. Others say that makes them vampire goths. Ironically, even though Libras hide who they are from the outside world, their goth side is easy to spot. With pale skin, black capes, smoked glasses, and accessories featuring skulls and bats, these goths adore vampire literature and cinema.
Scorpio: October 23-November 21 – The Fetish Goth
Scorpios are secret keepers who appreciate facts, resourcefulness, and being right. They express their emotions differently than many, though they’re known as brave, passionate, true friends. It’s only fitting that they’d be fetish goths, sporting stilettos and bondage accessories to go with their fabulous personalities.
Fetish goths prefer whips and chains to purses and sunnies. Maybe next time you hang out with a Scorpio, ask them about their “toy collection.”
Sagittarius: November 22-December 21 – The Victorian Goth
Sagittarians are often thought of as the most well-traveled of all the zodiac. Constantly curious, they traipse around the world looking for answers to some of our most puzzling questions. They yearn to experience as much as they can. Their ruling planet is Jupiter, and many say the planet’s large size indicates their boundless enthusiasm.
This is why most would agree they’re the perfect folks to categorize as Victorian goths, emphasizing their love of luxury, tea, theater, and literature. Their jewelry is often defined by its class and distinction, while ball gowns, long hair and sober, classic makeup are other common features.
Capricorn: December 22-January 19 – The Traditional Goth
With a sign that’s defined by its relationship to time and responsibility, Capricorns are typically very serious, stoic people. Their personalities have an inner core of independence, which often correlates with outward success. These folks are masters of self-control. Their conservatism is why it’s easy to see them being traditional – or trad – goths.
These apostles of the early gothic style were the originators of the movement. Clad mostly in black, they sport clothing made of nets, leather coats, trench coats, chains, and skulls. Oh, and there’s also that crazy hair.
Aquarius: January 20-February 18 – The Hippy Goth
When you think of Aquarians, you probably picture of taciturn, shy individuals. Aquarians are known for being deep thinkers. After all, they wouldn’t boast Lincoln, Darwin, and Galileo among their ranks if that weren’t true. Their worldliness is almost hippy-like, which is why they’re easy to see as hippy goths – vegans, vegetarians, bohemians, and defenders of the environment.
They meld goth and hippy culture together in a style defined by loose clothing, headbands, round glasses, velvet, and hats.
Pisces: February 19-March 20 – The Cyber Goth
Pisceans are cyber goths, no question about it. At first, it might be difficult to see the connection between Pisces and this obscure goth sub-culture, but Pisceans’ magnanimous spirits does, in fact, blend with these folks quite well. In their style, cybers boast bright, fluorescent colors and synthetic dreadlock hairstyles.
These folks adore platform shoes and boots, and accessorize with medical-style gas masks, vintage aviator-style goggles, and very garish yet somewhat tasteful makeup. Oh, and they love techno and dance music.
