1. Aries: Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton

Science fiction doesn't have to equal to epic space fights and chosen ones. Sometimes sci-fi can just be a good old-fashioned dinosaur chasing fun. As an Aries, you like your reading material to be just as dynamic and exciting as you are. When it comes to sci-fi, you're probably going to pick action and thrill-seeking over hundreds upon hundreds of pages of dedicated to describing a single piece of land.

2. Taurus: The Left Hand of Darkness by Ursula K. Le Guin

Taurus is known as the powerful and reliable member of the Zodiac, which beckons a powerful book to match. You don't need any lightweight books with spaceships chasing monsters. That's weaksauce. You enjoy a book that's beautifully written with sturdiness in mind, sci-fi or not. The Left Hand of Darkness isn't your typical galactic adventure. It is the story of a lone human on the distant planet of Winter — where inhabitants can choose and change their gender at will. It's a book with an intelligent, strong message which is perfect for an intelligent, strong sign.


3. Gemini: Ringworld by Larry Niven

The premise: Louis Wu has just turned 200, and he's off to find this place called Ringworld with his ragtag band comprised of an aggressive, eight-foot-tall cat monster, a party girl created for luck, and a cowardly alien known as the "Puppeteer." For a Gemini, this book has got fun and wacky characters plus the mystery, thrills, and space battles to keep you turning pages. It's full of duality and contradiction, just like any Gemini. But more importantly, it's almost as fun to hang with as you are.

4. Cancer: Gods From the Machine by Andrew Ly

As a Cancer, you sometimes feel like you're the only one who cares, or that you just have too many emotions. Well, if you're a emotional, caring crab, you might enjoy the young protagonist at the heart of Gods From the Machine. It's the story of one man with the ability to transform into a fire demon incarnate. He draws upon his powers through his emotions, and is conflicted by the burden of his power, which also that just might be the only thing left to save humanity. Guess having too many feelings isn't necessarily a bad thing, right?


5. Leo: Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

Earth is under attack, and the existence of the human race depends on one boy. Sounds a little bit familiar, Leo? It's kind of like when you go to a party, and everyone there is relying on you to come up with all the drinking games. As a Leo, you're used to being the center of attention. You can't help that people are naturally drawn to you! Which is why you can get behind this story of one clever little kid trying to survive a brutal training program so he can become the savior that Earth so desperately needs.

6. Virgo: The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood

As a Virgo, you tend to focus on the tiny details, but that doesn't mean that you can't see the bigger picture. The Handmaid's Tale is the story of one woman trapped in a dystopian society, stripped of her humanity because women are seen primarily as objects (way to set feminism back, Atwood!). The protagonist has only purpose in this world, and it is to become pregnant, whether she wants to or not. Margaret's prose is both detailed and moving, perfect for the sophisticated Virgo reader looking for a sci-fi feminist masterpiece.


7. Libra: Slaughterhouse-Five by Kurt Vonnegut

Slaughterhouse-Five is a non-linear war story with time-traveling aliens (sign us up!). It's a harsh, cynical look at the human condition, plus it's a hilariously charming read. It's a perfect woven tale for the perfectly balanced Libra. Vonnegut's insights will spark your intellect, and his message will fuel your passion for equality and justice. But more than anything else, his casual, tongue-in-cheek prose will entertain you as an easy-going, personable Libra yourself.


8. Scorpio: Neuromancer by William Gibson

If anyone can handle Neuromancer it's you, Scorpio. This is a gritty, passionate book filled with resilient characters, mysterious circumstances, and females with razors that can shoot out of their fingertips, just like Wolverine (sort of). It's an intellectual piece about technology, but it's also a crazy punk acid trip of a book. As a Scorpio, though, you thrive on intensity, so you'll be able to hold on for the entire wild ride. Giddyup.


9. Sagittarius: The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams

You're a Sagittarius. You're the whimsical, funny one of the Zodiac tree. You dig a good joke as well as a grand intergalactic road trip, and you like a little bit of philosophical genius thrown in there to boot. You like your humor to be laced with some high-level smarts. And no one does intelligent, absurd sci-fi like Douglas Adams himself. So you're the perfect candidate to read The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in all of its hysterical glory.


10. Capricorn: Dune by Frank Herbert

I know it's long, but you're Capricorn: you're the most ambitious, responsible alien in the galaxy. You're tenacious enough to finish a long book where most other signs would just give up prematurely. Their loss. Besides, you'll love the intricate world Frank Herbert has created, with its psychological mind games, twisted politics, giant sand-worm,s and freaky mind powers. It's a multi-layered book for a serious reader, but it's also one of the greatest sci-fi masterpieces of all time. Enjoy.


11. Aquarius: How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe by Charles Yu

Aquarius, you're basically already living on another planet. So you need a sci-fi book that takes it a step further, like Charles Yu's inventive, off-the-wall How to Live Safely in a Science Fictional Universe. It's a meta-fictional novel where author and character can be one and the same, where time travel is an everyday occurrence, and where pet dogs can be nonexistent but ontologically valid. It's a great book for an original thinker like you, and it's guaranteed to be nothing like any sci-fi book you've ever read before. 


12. Pisces: A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle

Pisces is the dreamer of the Zodiac family. You're a creative, compassionate soul, and A Wrinkle in Time is just the book for you. It's fit for children and adults, it's a story of inter-dimensional space travel as well as a story of a family trying to reconnect, and it's written with such tenderness and creativity that it's impossible not to fall in love with. For beautiful, inspiring sci-fi books, you can't do much better than A Wrinkle in Time.



That wraps it up. What'd you think of my list? Does it relate to you?
