* In ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'', each of the twelve Trolls take their handles from a symbol of the Western Zodiac. For example, "carcinoGeneticist" for Cancer. Their actual names are also based on their sign (for example, Tavros is derived from Taurus), and use the symbol of their zodiac sign as their associated symbol.
** A lot of the trolls' various quirks and interests (although not necessarily their personalities) are also related in some fashion to their representative sign. For example, Sollux (Gemini) is obsessed with bifurcation and duality, Equius (Sagittarius) has a thing for [[BestialityIsDepraved horses]] and archery. Even their guardian lusii follow the motif. However, the Trolls are based off of the stereotypes of the Zodiac constellation icons ''themselves'' rather than the Zodiac characterizations.
** However, since the [[AllTrollsAreDifferent Trolls are all aliens]], all the connections between their names, symbols, and character traits are ''completely coincidental'' because they have no knowledge of the WesternZodiac on Earth. [[spoiler: But when they create the universe that Earth is in by completing their session, they also ''create'' the constellations of the Zodiac, and thus the astrology itself. They're not patterned after the Zodiac, the Zodiac is ''patterned after them.'']]
** [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?s=6&p=007295 Though it loops back around.]]
** Plus, [[LovableNerd John]] and Jade fit their respective signs (Aries and Sagittarius) fairly well. [[TheStoic Dave]] and [[LittleMissSnarker Rose]], not so much.
** Some of the trolls actually do have the traits of their associated zodiac signs, like Kanaya's love for exacting things, Vriska's [[ManipulativeBastard smartness]], Feferi's happiness, Nepeta's enthousiasm, and probably Karkat's moodiness as well.

* Each Scout/Senshi in ''Franchise/SailorMoon'' had a sun sign that matched up with their planet as well as their personality (e.g. Rei Hino/Sailor Mars is a stubborn, independent Aries, while Makoto Kino/Sailor Jupiter is an honest, optimistic Sagittarius). The EasternZodiac is used as well; the Western symbol corresponds to their personality, and the Eastern with their abilities, generally (e.g. Minako Aino/Sailor Venus is associated with metal and is one of the biggest {{Determinator}}s in the series regarding her duty as a Senshi, and Ami Mizuno/Sailor Mercury's water element hints at her [[ShrinkingViolet non-confrontational]] personality).



* The second episode of ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'' after Mendo's introduction had Lum comparing Ataru and Mendo with a zodiac. Being a bit of a LiteralGenie, she actually had them riding on a miniature models of the zodiac signs in a globe.

to:

* ''Manga/AttackOnTitan'' gives subtle nods to this, with [[AllThereInTheManual the guidebook]] providing birthdates for the major characters.
** HotBlooded rivals Eren and Jean are both Aries, as is ActionGirl Annie.
** [[BigManOnCampus Charismatic]] big brother figure Reiner and PluckyGirl huntress Sasha are both Leos.
** Brilliant scientist Hange is a Virgo, while the charismatic Commander of the Survey Corps, Erwin, is a Libra.
** Armin is a Scorpio, as fits his transformation from an idealistic youth into a ManipulativeBastard.
** Several Capricorns feature prominently in the series: [[TheAce Levi]], [[ExtremeDoormat Bertolt]], and [[NiceGirl Krista]].
** Mikasa and Ymir both fit the "Aloof" characteristic of the Aquarius sign. [[TheHeart Loyal]] Connie is a Taurus, while [[TheCutie idealistic]] Marco is a Gemini.
* In ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' fights, Creator/TiteKubo seems fond of pairing up people of the same sign. For example: Kenpachi vs Nnoitra (both Scorpio), Kenpachi vs Tousen (who is a Scorpio as well), Soifon vs Barragan (both Aquarius), Byakuya vs [[spoiler: Tsukishima]] (another fight between two Aquarius people). Seeing people of the same element fghting one against the other happens often, too: Toshiro (Sagittarius) vs Harribel (Leo) (both Fire signs), Zommari (Libra) vs Byakuya (both Air signs), Ichigo (Cancer) vs Ikkaku (Scorpio) (both Water signs), Ichigo vs Kenpachi, Ichigo vs [[spoiler: Ginjou]] (Scorpio).
** Protagonist Ichigo and female lead Rukia are Cancer and Capricorn, respectively -- opposite signs of the Zodiac and playing on how their personalities contrast and complement each other.
* Celestial wizards in ''Manga/FairyTail'' can [[SummonMagic summon]] the spirits of each of the constellations through the use of magical Gatekeys. Main character Lucy is the prime example of one of these wizards, who currently owns ten out of twelve spirits. Curiously, [[MakingASplash Aquarius]] and [[LightEmUp Leo]] are her two strongest, and none of the personalities or elements really match with the above. For example, Aries is a shy, non-combative [[TheWoobie woobie]] and Taurus is a LoveableSexManiac.
* ''Anime/IronMan'' had Zodiac themes for each MonsterOfTheWeek.
* The second episode main characters of ''Manga/UruseiYatsura'' after Mendo's ''Manga/MagicKnightRayearth'' tells they zodiac signs and [[PersonalityBloodTypes blood types]] during their introduction had Lum comparing Ataru in the manga and Mendo in the SNES game: Hikaru is a Leo (TheHero, TheLeader, associated with Fire), Umi is a zodiac.

* DC's ''ComicBook/FinalCrisis'' storyline involved a character named Libra who unified the bad guys under Darkseid; they actually managed to conquer the world for a few weeks(?) before the good guys inevitably made a comeback. Libra's MO was, of course, to "balance the scales" in favor of the villains.

* In ''Gods of Riverworld'', last and "tributary" novel from the Creator/PhilipJoseFarmer's ''Literature/{{Riverworld}}'' series, AuthorAvatar Peter Jairus Frigate uses zodiacal attributes to assign certain special rooms to himself and his other seven companions in the journey to the Dark Tower.

* The Music/DeepPurple song "Maybe I'm A Leo" from ''[[Music/MachineHeadAlbum Machine Head]]'' addresses the zodiac sign Leo.
* Astrology fell within [[Music/LedZeppelin Jimmy Page's]] interest in the occult. Most notably, Robert Plant, John Bonham and John Paul Jones' sigils were pulled out of commonly available books and had straight forward meanings (writing, skill and family respectively) while Page's came from a 16th century book known as "The Grand Grimoire" and is a symbol for Saturn. Page is a Capricorn and Capricorn is ruled by Saturn. Furthermore, his famous dragon-emblazoned black suit had three symbols embroidered on his leg: Capricorn (his sun sign), Scorpio (his ascendent sign) and Cancer (his moon sign).
* Many zodiac signs are spoofed on the back cover of Frank Zappa's ''Music/OneSizeFitsAll''.
* Music/{{Rush}} seems to have an implacable antipathy on astrology. Their song ''Freewill'' manifests extremely harsh critique on horoscopes.
