No matter your gender, presentation, or relationship with darkness, we should all aspire to have a bit of goth girl in us. Who wouldn't want to be so bold, unafraid, intelligent, and spooky? The real question is, which type of goth girl are you? For quick and easy reference, each goth girl has her own zodiacal alignment - not all goths are built equally. Much like the rest of us, some goth girls are known for their Martian headstrong nature, while the more Venusian types may come across as more nurturing and luxurious. Some are in a league of their own, marching to the beat of their own drums. The goth girl zodiac celebrates the vast multitudes of goth girl personalities represented in the media and in ourselves. What you discover about your inner goth girl may frighten you!

Known for her singular hyper-focus on justice, Lisbeth Salander embodies the classic Aries approach to interpersonal relationships. For her and many other Aries, everything is a conquest, but there are many benefits to gaining her trust. Her reputation as a paranoid sociopath throughout the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trilogy is short sighted as she experienced a great deal of trauma throughout her life, and Ariens do not tend to mince words or hide their true emotions. Salander is dedicated to whatever objective she sets for herself - on her own terms.

Ellie Nash spends much of her story arc seeking peace and stability, a deeply seated need for a Taurus. In the absence of the peace and long-lasting love she desires, Ellie grew dependent on self-harm behaviors to regulate her own reality. Despite her inner turmoil, Ellie has always been a dedicated friend, never afraid to provide support while issuing a reality check to whoever needs it.

Selina Kyle and her alter-ego, Catwoman, are as different as night and day. Kyle lives as a meek, soft-spoken secretary, while Catwoman is an unhinged vigilante with a questionable moral compass. As disparate as these two identities may seem, they synergize perfectly to create one complex individual, which is the heart of what it means to be a Gemini.
Ruled by the Twins, Geminis are known for their communicative skills and their often slippery, hard-to-pin-down nature. As Catwoman spends the greater portion of Batman Returns shooting witty barbs back and forth with Batman, just to disappear into the night, she is a true Gemini.
