If you're wondering why some people are more unconventional than others, astrology might give you some answers.

Cancers can be viewed as off-putting by some because they'd rather be at home than out and about socializing. While they're famously devoted to their friends and family, they hold grudges which can also be unexpected. Cancer's have some definite quirks, including being moody, vindictive, and overly sensitive. But luckily, once you see past these idiosyncrasies and befriend a Cancer, you'll have a dedicated pal for life (despite their sometimes weird ways).

Taureans aren't always unconventional, but they do "think outside the norm," according to Evans. The forensic astrology author references sometimes controversial rap rocker Machine Gun Kelly, "who often breaks traditional style rules" as an example of the intelligent sign. Taurus folks can be stubborn and impatient, which can make them do unorthodox things in their quest to get what they want. This hard-headed sign comes across as outlandish when they can't lose sight of their goals.

This intellectually curious sign famously has two different sides, which can make them seem kooky. Because Geminis are the twins of the zodiac, they have an innate way of listening to others that is different, says Evans. He says Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen are a good example: Their sun is in Gemini, which "might contribute to their unique sense of selves and need to be different." It certainly contributes to their distinctive sense of style.

This water sign is known for being in its own little world of creativity—which can come across as quirky. These at times unrealistic escapists live their lives "without boundaries" and "love to color outside the lines and go with the flow outside of a group," says Evans. These imaginative people often become artists or interior decorators, always looking for inventive ways to express themselves. "Wherever you have Neptune in your birth chart, it may explain the area of your life where you resist boundaries," says Evans.

No one who has spent significant time with an Aquarius will be shocked to see them top this list! These eccentric folks are what Evans calls "the unconventional people of the Zodiac," citing Elon Musk as an example. "They can be perceived as weird or quirky according to the general public because it's often how visionaries are perceived," says Evans. "Aquarius, and its ruling planet Uranus, represent the eyes and vision. Since Aquarians 'see' so far ahead into the future, the rest of the world believes they have very active imaginations until their forecasts materialize." Aquarians might appear offbeat to others, but their big ideas won't appear quite as off-putting when they come true.
