The Zodiac Signs As Queens from ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’
There was that one runway where the contestants on this reality series dressed as their zodiac signs. Still, with 11 seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race available for binge-watching, there are plenty of examples of each personality type. Here’s our list of each zodiac sign as personified by the queens of Drag Race.
Aquarius: It’s the dawning of the age of Aquaria
She may be an Aquarius and one of the most obvious ones, in fact. Aquaria is also the independent, endearing winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 10. During spring 2019, she became one of the first drag queens on the Met Gala’s bubblegum pink carpet, alongside alumna Violet Chachki and the reality show’s host, RuPaul.
Pisces: Alaska 5000
The true queen of charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent, Alaska 5000 is a Pisces through and through. She knows when to be honest and emotional, but she also knows when to be creative and funny. It’s this spirit and personality that won her the title of “America’s Next Drag Superstar.”
Another Pisces is the winner of All-Stars 1, Chad Michaels.
Aries: Miz Cracker
She’s smart and ambitious, but not in the same way as a Gemini. Miz Cracker is an Aries, meaning that oftentimes she doubts herself and her decisions, but her heart is always in the right place. Her passion for food and her culture shines through with her appearances on Bon Appétit’s YouTube channel, on her series’ entitled “JewTorials” and “Review with a Jew,” and on RuPaul’s Drag Race.
Taurus: Your dad just calls her Katya
Yekaterina Petrovna Zamolodchikova, oftentimes just known as Katya, is the fun and creative Taurus for your nerve, mama. She’s a daytime passable woman catching the commuter train, but she’s also a little stubborn and super easy to like. (In fact, she won Miss Congeniality for season seven of RuPaul’s Drag Race.)
Gemini: Morgan McMichaels
Poor Morgan McMichaels is probably the best representation of a Gemini. While a contestant on All-Stars 3, Morgan was quick to establish she would be sending home the strongest competitors when voting. It’s nothing personal, of course. Geminis are infamous for being two-faced, while also being ambitious, clever, and smart.
Cancer: The winner of season six, Bianca Del Rio
She may put up a mean front but underneath her Rolodex of hate, (deep underneath,) Bianca Del Rio is one of the kindest contestants on this series. As a Cancer, Bianca is loyal and naturally empathic, often showcasing this by helping other contestants on Drag Race. Cancers are also known for their humor, which of course, shines through whenever Bianca Del Rio opens her mouth.
Leo: Manila Luzon
She’s a fire sign, and boy, does it show when she’s competing. As a Leo, Manila Luzon is insanely creative and imaginative. (She even designed the covers of a few books for Barnes and Noble.) This drag perform is not afraid to fight for her close friends. That includes her All-Stars 4 lip-sync moment, where she saved Latrice Royale.
Virgo: Trixie is ‘a Virgo who can’t drive’
Trixie Mattel may not be a vibrant Virgo, because she’s on the cusp of Virgo and Leo. During one episode of UNHhhh, Katya read the description of Virgos aloud. At one point, Katya reads, “you have to remember it’s very hard to learn when you’re constantly talking.” Which, well, is kind of spot on. In terms of the YouTube series, UNHhhh, at least.
Libra: Vanessa ‘Miss Vanjie’ Matteo
As one of the contestants who actually appeared in the zodiac sign runway, Miss Vanjie screams balanced and beautiful Libra. Literally. She’s one of the loudest contestants from RuPaul’s Drag Race, later appearing in a music video for Iggy Azalea and twirling her little purse on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
Scorpio: The Taylor Swift lookalike, Jade Jolie
Truth be told, there haven’t been many Scorpios on RuPaul’s Drag Race. Perhaps the best example of this sign is Jade Jolie, the contestant from season five who since appeared in a music video for Taylor Swift. As a Scorpio, this drag performer is confrontational when she has to be, but she’s also very intuitive and perceptive.
Sagittarius: The Vixen came to fight
Not so surprising to some people, The Vixen is a Sagittarius. While this sign is known for having good intentions, sometimes it can rub people the wrong way. As a contestant, The Vixen made a name for herself with her blunt and outspoken nature, she also used her platform to advocate for equality within the LGBTQ+ community.
Capricorn: Alyssa Edwards is a dancing queen
This drag performer starred on seasons of RuPaul’s Drag Race and RuPaul’s Drag Race: All-Stars, in addition to her own Netflix original, Dancing Queen. Alyssa Edwards is larger than life and over the top, but that’s why so many people love her. She’s a Capricorn, which means she’s very goal-oriented, work-focused, and ambitious and we totally see that.
Episodes of RuPaul’s Drag Race: Untucked are available for streaming on WOW Presents’ YouTube channel.
