While everyone’s binging on rom-coms and gorging on chocolate this month of hearts, some people like to celebrate February more hardcore. When we spotted a thread on How to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse on Netflix’s twitter account, we thought we’d do a deep dive on how to survive the zombie apocalypse. If zombies are your jam and you’re raging to get ahead of the Walking Dead game, we’ve got you sorted.
Survive the Zombie Apocalypse Like an ARIES
When there’s a zombie breakout, you know that all hell breaks loose and chaos ensues. Aries keeps it together by taking control and being the boss. Cowards won’t fly with a natural born zombie killer like Aries. He’ll rally the troops, get an old-fashioned battle-axe and rifle, and lay down the law. Take no prisoners is Aries’ mantra. People who carry this sign are so full of rage, they'll be chasing the dead down in no time.
Survive the Zombie Apocalypse Like a TAURUS
While everyone’s in a tizzy, Taurus holds the fort. As the official press agent of humanity, Taurus becomes the harbinger of good and bad news. The modern-day equivalent of the town crier, he is all about finding your footing amidst all the chaos. There may be trouble everywhere, but Taurus finds duty in delivering the news, giving everyone updates, and making sure the whole city is in on the plan to infiltrate and destroy.
Survive the Zombie Apocalypse Like a GEMINI
Trust a Gemini to get out into the field—not because they’ve got killer instincts, but more because they’re just naturally curious. They’ll bolt out of their doors as soon as the apocalypse begins and see if they can negotiate a peace agreement (they’ll probably get themselves in the process, but, that’s Gemini for you). Particularly savvy Gemini can wield their sex appeal and maybe even strike up an affair with one of the bad guys—for real.
Survive the Zombie Apocalypse Like a CANCER
Superpower: Keeping it on the DL
Cancer gets a bad rap for being sensitive. And the apocalypse might initially rattle their emotions and require them to take a couple of chill pills. But at the end of the day, the crabs of the zodiac are made of tough stuff—protected by their hard shells, they’ll be able to scurry from one hiding place to the next unnoticed and unseen. If they play their cards right and know exactly how to navigate their city, they’ll be out of danger before anyone catches on.
Survive the Zombie Apocalypse Like a LEO
Superpower: Straight shooter
Leos need to arm themselves with whatever provisions are available. Chainsaws, blades, and bats will work well; but these strong fighters are particularly great with rifles and shotguns. It takes amazing strength to get out into the battlefield and fire with purpose. But Leo’s resolve and inner determination are unparalleled. Give them extra motivation—like saving their family, a lover, or humankind, and they’ll rip those zombies to shreds, no questions asked.
Survive the Zombie Apocalypse Like a VIRGO
Superpower: Hiding out
You’re not going to find Virgo sprinting across the city to get away—they’re much too cerebral for all that physical activity. Instead, you’ll find Virgo hiding out in a bunker they’ve no less designed and commissioned themselves way before the apocalypse happened. Alone, protected, and bolstered by all the rations they’ve accumulated, they can hatch out a technically genius plan that they’ll then relegate to other, more out-in-the-open fighters.
Survive the Zombie Apocalypse Like a LIBRA
Think there’s no way out of the apocalypse? Think again. Libra is so adept at bargaining and working things out diplomatically that even the living dead don’t stand a chance against them. Every eye for an eye, every tooth for a tooth is their underlying motivation. If the zombies dare defy the rules Libra lays out for them however, they can expect a full-on rampage. Libra can justify the zombie death toll in a snap. They’ll do whatever it takes to deliver peace right back to the people.
Survive the Zombie Apocalypse Like a SCORPIO
If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em. The first and most likely to jump ship once the apocalypse hits, these passion players of the zodiac have no problem trading in one life for the next. Even if it means abandoning all that is good in the world, they’ll go right ahead. Scorpio has a deep affinity for the dark side. Give them pain and they’ll suffer through it almost like they love it. They’ll also try their darnedest to reel everyone else into their masochistic plan—heads up, Scorpio pals.
Survive the Zombie Apocalypse Like a SAGITTARIUS
Ever the optimistic, Sagittarius will head straight to the labs with all the other folks wanting to face this brave new world with new ideas. While their brains are intact, Sagittarius will use them for the highest good—figuring out exactly what type of virus started the zombie epidemic and creating its antidote. Sagittarius will be willing to go undercover to capture one of the zombies, for the sake of science, experimentation, and saving mankind.
Survive the Zombie Apocalypse Like a CAPRICORN
Capricorn hates it when things go awry. You can just imagine the mental anguish they’ll be experiencing once their perfect plans are foiled by something as inane as the zombie apocalypse. In private, Capricorn will get to work at deconstructing their lifestyle, their home, and their life plans. The cogs in their brains will be shifting overtime to flip things over, turn things around, and destroy the very fabric of their lives to create a new one. Finally, Capricorns are society’s planners who are willing to bomb the city just to save it from the enemy.
Survive the Zombie Apocalypse Like an AQUARIUS
Aquarius has worked far too long, making the world a better place for them to see it crumble just because of a “minor” complication. Aquarius won’t let anyone else win, by sheer force of their pride. They’ll march right up to the opposition leader and take them down without a hitch. Furthermore, this isn’t even an issue of selfishness for Aquarius. These folks are too invested in their idea of a perfect utopia (zombies not included) that they just won’t stand for an apocalypse.
Survive the Zombie Apocalypse Like a PISCES
Pisces can easily slip into double agent mode during the zombie apocalypse. Their ability to deceive, lie, and make like they’re zombies themselves will make them the clear winners at the end of the day. Above all, Pisces has the ability to empathize—they'll know exactly how to act like a zombie without leaving a trace. With an unshakeable commitment to the greater good, there’s no chance that they’ll switch sides and root for the enemy.
