* ''FanFic/TealovesSteamyAdventure'': Initially, Libra Ace's name is just an oblique reference to her being an {{expy}} of [[CaveStory Curly Brace]]. However, a later author plays up the zodiac reference by having Libra obsess over "maintaining balance". And she drops references to Capricorn and Virgo in her conversations.

Cytherea (Venus) over Taurus;
Phoebus (Apollo) the shapely Gemini;
You, Cyllenius (Mercury), over Cancer;
and Jupiter, you yourself rule Leo with the Mother of the Gods;
Virgo who bears ears of grain belongs to Ceres;
and the forged scales to Vulcan;
quarrelsome Scorpio clings to Mars;
Diana cherishes the hunting man part horse (Sagittarius);
and Vesta the contracted stars of Capricorn;
opposite Jupiter is Aquarius, the star of Juno;
and Neptune acknowledges his own Pisces in the upper air.”

* While Aquarius isn't a popular choice for characters, it's certainly popular as a general theme. The "Age of Aquarius" refers to a time period starting roughly in the mid-to-late 20th century that will last for the next two millenia. This is popular in works influenced by the hippie culture of the '60s.

* According to the ''Literature/HorusHeresy'' novel 'Horus Rising' all of the Primarchs correspong to one of the _twenty_ signs of the Zodiac. Guess there are a couple more months in the year in ''TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}''. Unfortunately, it doesn't say what the other signs are, but Horus himself is a Sagittarius. That must have been [[HeelFaceTurn one heck of an interesting horoscope]].

* ''Webcomic/{{Zodiac}}'' features a team of [[LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters twelve]] superpowered individuals (okay...''nine'' superpowered individuals plus [[BadassNormal three]] [[GunFu normal]] [[TeenGenius people]]) codenamed by a Zodiac motif (i.e., there's one person called Aries, one called Gemini, ect). It seems that none of them were given their aliases ''by accident'' - all of their birthdays coincide with the sign they are named after. The reason for this isn't clear yet, but definitely set up in-universe.
