Astrology is not an exact science. The study of the stars and their position allows us to interpret certain behaviours. The 12 signs of the Zodiac are distinguished by their character traits, qualities, and faults.

Although fictional, our favourite characters can also be associated with astrological signs. Wondering what kind of character you would play if you were in a movie or TV show? It may depend on your astrological sign, which determines certain personality traits.
Aries: The hothead
Aries is known for being stubborn and go-getter. They often act without thinking, impulsively. But, they are also super brave. In a zombie or post-apocalyptic movie, they would be the character willing to fight for their life, ideas, and values, even if it means taking risks. This is a zodiac sign that is constantly on the move. They do things with ardor and fighting spirit.
Aries would probably play Buffy in Buffy the Vampire Slayer or Cookie Lyon in Empire. This is a sign that is prone to playing characters that are pretty badass, but tend to get on your nerves.
Taurus: The excessive character
The sign of Taurus generally represents people with whom one likes to do fun, amusing things until it turns into excess. Natives of this earth sign need to be grounded and are quite materialistic. Illustrated by a strong and powerful animal, they are a charismatic character who imposes their presence. Taurus is very loyal, but their jealous side can make them a toxic person.
Thus, if we were to assign them a role, it would probably be Tokyo in the Netflix series La Casa de Papel (Money Heist) or Betty in Riverdale.
Gemini: The most difficult to understand
A native of the sign Gemini would certainly be the somewhat odd partner of the hero. Although sociable, this air sign stands out for its originality and is proud of it. One of the major characteristics of the air sign is its moody aspect which can be the cause of many chaotic situations.
Characters that seem to perfectly represent their unpredictability are Harley Quinn or Arya Stark and her multiple faces in Game of Thrones. Gemini is also one of the most difficult signs of the Zodiac to understand.
Cancer: The hypersensitive child
The sign of Cancer would probably play the role of the romantic character who is often under-appreciated. Associated with water, Cancers are known for their gentleness, sensitivity, and kindness, but they are also often clumsy. Very attached to home and family, Cancer can be immature with a strong need for attention.
They could be likened to Bridget Jones, Sabrina Spellman in the series Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, or Chandler in Friends, for example.
The Lion: The anti-hero we admire
Lions have a reputation for being very proud and haughty. On screen, they would certainly be the anti-hero. With boundless ambition, the Lion wants to conquer the world. Even though they can be scary, they impresses and inspire a kind of admiration. They therefore resemble the villain that the viewer comes to understand and to whom they become attached when they finally reveal their weaknesses.
Characters whose star sign is Leo are Daenerys Targaryen from the Game of Thrones series, for example, Berlin in La Casa de Papel (Money Heist) or or Rachel Green in Friends.
The Virgin: The one who always has something to say
This is the character that no one expects, but who turns out to be important in the course of the story. Methodical and meticulous, Virgo pays great attention to detail. They are often the person who saves everyone's skin when things get tough in the movie or series. However, it's important to remember that this is a very critical sign that doesn't hesitate to let it be known, which can quickly become annoying.
Virgos could play characters like Monica Geller in Friends, Blair Waldorf in Gossip Girl, or Hermione Granger in Harry Potter.
Libra: The one who takes the lead
Perceived as addicted to fashion and beautiful things, Librans often have problems in love. They think they're fabulous and see themselves as being in the lead. This air sign is constantly looking for balance. What is certain is that they will always have problems in their relationships with friends and lovers.
This is the case with heroines such as Carrie Bradshaw in Sex and the City or Elle Woods in Legally Blonde. Like Sansa Stark in Game of Thrones, Libra is a great diplomat who knows how to use their charms.
Scorpio: Intensity incarnate
The eighth sign of the Zodiac has the role of the one who is not understood. Very suspicious, this sign hides its emotions. We don't really know if they're a bad guy or a good guy. The natives of this water sign are aces at sarcasm and can appear aggressive. In astrology, this is one of the most passionate signs. Scorpios are quite dark, mysterious, and secretive by nature. One thing is for sure, the Scorpio will always play the role of the one who likes sex a little too much.
Here are the most representative characters of this sign: Lucifer in the series of the same name, Maeve in Sex Education, or Mia Wallace in Pulp Fiction.
Sagittarius: The one who loves adventure
The sign of Sagittarius is a traveller. Sagittarians are always ready to leave everything behind to go on an adventure and would make an excellent main character. Enthusiastic, optimistic, and realistic by nature, what better way to follow them on their adventures than in a movie or series? Plus, we're sure to get some crazy monologues. The outspoken nature of this fire sign sometimes makes them a bit sanctimonious.
Among the characters capable of leaving everything behind to experience new things is Emily from Emily in Paris. Catwoman also perfectly illustrates their desire for independence and freedom.
Capricorn: The one who is not very fun
Rather ambitious and proud, Capricorns have a tendency to put everyone else's feet on the ground. Having other priorities, love stories are not for them. But, natives of this star sign will always be there to give sound advice. Capricorn knows how to be patient.
This is the reasonable, serious character, even a bit 'boring' like Cristina Yang in Grey's Anatomy or Amy in The Big Bang Theory. They are thus rather cold characters.
Aquarius: The original of the Zodiac
The Aquarian is the character who wants to follow their dreams, no matter the collateral damage. On their way, they don't hesitate to shake up some troublesome characters. They are also a hyper-creative and extravagant sign that can be a little weird. Aquarians do not fit into the norm.
They would play characters like Fallon Carrington in Dynasty or Phoebe in the cult series Friends. For their avant-garde side, Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter would be a good native of the Aquarius sign.
Pisces: The hero with a big heart
Pisces are mysterious and sensitive. They would play the role of a character who is discovered to have a big heart and many weaknesses. A bit lonely in their corner, Pisces have a hard time admitting that they need the help of others to get through the film.
If we had to give them roles, they would be Eleven in Stranger Things or Meredith Grey in Grey's Anatomy. They are characters who know suffering because they tend to put the happiness of others before their own. They have a sense of sacrifice like Belle in the Disney movie Beauty and the Beast.
There you go, you now know which movie or series characters you are according to your astrological sign. These are only a few examples, but don't hesitate to find other correspondences. If the astral sun sign gives a global vision of your personality, the ascendant and lunar sign which compose the astral chart can bring more precision.
