Since we’re all home with more time to think, we thought now would be a good time to explore some of life’s most important questions — like, “What musical character are you, based on your zodiac sign?” You probably already have a feeling about which musical character you most identify with, but through the power of astrology(.com), you can now know for sure! So, who are you?
Aries (March 21-April 20): Regina George, Mean Girls
Fearless and determined, Aries is the first to jump in line to get a new project under way. Through the power of sheer stubbornness, Aries will gather the masses and put them to good use, but if they can’t immediately see the value in a piece of the plan, it’s likely to get left behind.
Each day brings a thousand new possibilities, and Aries is more than ready to dive into new waters, even if it means leaving things incomplete behind them. They’re always more than willing to jump into the fray and make themselves heard–when they put their mind to it, Aries is unlikely to come out losing, though the outcome isn’t what matters. The thrill of the game is where it’s at, so if nothing else, they’ll definitely come out swinging.
Taurus (April 21-May 21): Roxie Hart, Chicago
At the other end of the spectrum, Taurus finds thrill in the rewards. Materialism is where it’s at, and Taurus thrives surrounded by riches, even if it’s just an illusion. That being said, Taurus comes off just as stubborn, and they’ll use it to reach their goals. They take their time and plan it out, rather than jumping headfirst, so you can rest assured that a Taurus is in it for the long haul.
Comfort is a priority, and it’s found in their surroundings, which better be soft and welcoming. Unfortunately, this can often cause them to latch onto things–including their partners–a little too hard.
Gemini (May 21-June 21): Elphaba Thropp, Wicked
These intellectuals love to talk, and the more they learn, the more knowledge they crave. They thrill in sharing the information they gather with those they love, but have probably put their foot in their mouth more times than they can count.
Gemini tends to overthink, rationalizing absolutely everything, but they’re flush with imagination, too. This helps them see both sides of a story, but it also means they’re not always the most reliable–when you’re desperate for more, it’s easy to leave some things undone as you move on to the next shiny thing. They’re loyal, though, and Gemini’s heart is always in the right place, even though they tend to come off as cold or scheming. They just look at a problem from multiple angles, and don’t always realize how they’re presenting themselves.
Cancer (June 20-July 22): Judy Bernly, 9 to 5
A domestic god(dess), Cancer thrives at home, wherever or whomever that may be.
They wear their heart on their sleeve, but this sensitivity leaves them vulnerable. Some may call it overly-sensitive, and it’s true that they’re easily hurt–if provoked, they’ll brick up a wall to hide behind before you even realize they’re doing it, but once they’ve calmed down and come back out, they’ll be the first to tell you all about it. They’re also highly in tune with others’ emotions, and can sympathize over most anything.
Protecting their home is their main drive and, while their kindness usually gets them far, they’re not above a little manipulation when it fails. They can sometimes come off as smothering, but it’s only because they’re fiercely protective of what matters.
Leo (July 23-August 22): Dee Dee Allen, The Prom
Magnetic, ambitious and creative, Leo knows their worth, and will make sure you do, too. With a flair for the dramatic and a desire for attention, you’ll find Leo center-stage, no matter the setting. Leo has strength of voice, wit, and self, all of which work together to embolden them as a great leader. They often disrupt the status quo, yet they have a tendency to inspire others.
Leo doesn’t see themselves as vain or bossy. Others probably do, but Leo will set them straight sooner or later because failure isn’t an option, and Leo will do whatever it takes to maintain their throne.
Virgo (August 23-Sept 22): Kristoff, Frozen
The problem-solvers of the zodiac signs, Virgo finds their happiness in service. They’re eagle-eyed when it comes to detail and they always manage to get through more than anyone else might expect. They come in with the save when they’re most needed, because Virgo puts their all into every project and they do it correctly from the start. They have a tendency to overthink each step in the process, but it’s only because they’re searching for the best solution.
Work isn’t the only thing they’re studious about. Virgo pays just as much attention to their relationships. Because they’re so calculating, Virgos can be picky about the things they surround themselves with, but they just know what they want and how to filter out what’s wrong for them.
Libra (September 23-October 23): Reno Sweeney, Anything Goes
Libra craves company, and their main focus is on the people they surround themselves with. They’re team players in any setting, but their favorite partner is waiting at home for them. They risk damaging that relationship though, because they often put too much focus on pleasing people outside of their inner circle.
Libra also seeks balance, and tries to do what’s right for everyone; conflict is not an option for them, but they’re always open to talking it out. Because of this, they’re experts at seeing both sides of the story. Unfortunately, they often overstep, offering their views where they’re not always wanted, but their down-to-earth attitude keeps them open to realizing they’ve done so, and they’ll accept when they’re wrong.
Scorpio (October 24 – November 22): Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice
Scorpio’s will squeeze out every little detail about you that they can. They’ll never give you an inside peek into their inner workings, but they know exactly what buttons to push to get everything they want out of you. They can be manipulative when necessary, but prefer a scientific path– there’s no use for middle ground in Scorpio’s world. They see everything in black and white, and the risk of beginning something new or ending something old don’t concern them.
Because they’ll push for what they need, they can be a bit off-putting. Those thoughts may actually bother them, but they won’t let you know it. Instead, they’ll brush it off. Eventually they’ll forget all about their hurt feelings, unless angered just right. Then, they might explode. But failure isn’t an option, so they’ll keep picking themselves up and pushing on until they get it right.
Sagitarius (November 23-December 21): The Baker’s Wife, Into the Woods
A wanderer at heart, Sagittarius desires knowledge, and will travel to the ends of the earth to uncover it. Clear minded, Sagittarius looks at the bigger picture first–they have to, with their vast amount of knowledge in need of sorting–and then presents their point of view. They’ll listen to what others have to say, but have a tendency to be straight forward, if not a little too blunt, when they disagree.
Generous, optimistic and fair, Sag knows what’s right. That being said, the tease of adventure can sometimes have them jumping too quickly from one thing to the next, but that’s what’s most exciting. Try to tie them down, and they’ll fight back.
Capricorn (December 22-January 20): Katherine Plumber, Newsies
Capricorn knows what it takes to get to the top of the ladder, but will play it safe to reach that final rung. Patience is key, because life itself is the biggest project. It’s baby steps all the way, carefully evaluating the whole plan–their end game is incredibly important, and the idea of victory will keep them pushing through, even as obstacles become greater.
Capricorn craves the highest position there is, and all the rewards that come with it, and they’re not afraid to knock those that get in their way back down a few pegs, though they’ll only do so as a last resort; generally, their grace and intelligence helps them get where they’re going without any casualties, and you’ll always be remembered if you helped them get there.
Aquarius (January 21-February 19): Matilda Wormwood, Matilda
Aquarius will save the world. Their energy is siphoned into making our home a better place, and they seriously consider every little detail to find out what works and what doesn’t. They’ll spend hours on a game plan, thinking about the best ways to improve, and will drag anyone else into the process that they can. These philanthropists will share all of their ideas, and their ideas are always top-notch.
While their own ideas are preferred, Aquarius will jump on top of any new, radical thought that has a chance of success–they love to push the boundaries, and to create brand new ones, and will do whatever it takes.
Pisces (February 20-March 19): Jenna Hunterson, Waitress
Pisces feels absolutely everything, and place great emphasis on their own personal journeys and emotions, but they’ll never admit it. These self-sacrificing empaths feel the pain of others, in addition to vast amounts of their own, and can have difficulty determining which is real; dreams of what should be often paint over what really is for this sign, but their intuition and compassion allow them to glean what others usually can’t.
When silenced or discouraged, Pisces can fall into a dark path, and usually require some time to themselves to find their balance once again. It’s easy to fall into the dream world, but if Pisces can pull themselves out of it, they may just discover that reality can be even better than they’ve imagined.
