Ancient astrologers meticulously gathered astronomical data, celestial movements, and planetary alignments to formulate their theories. Detractors may dismiss it all as silly, made-up nonsense, forgetting that if we challenge the validity of astrology simply for being concocted by the human mind, we must also consider that gender, society, and even Netflix are indeed human-made constructs as well.
However, if you happen to be a big proponent of the ‘loosen up and live a little’ philosophy, then astrology might just be a fun endeavour for you. And you may have even wondered which Netflix character you might be based on your sun sign.
Astrology may extend far beyond the simplistic sun sign horoscopes that fill popular magazines. Birth charts, moon signs, rising signs, Western vs Vedic systems, and the intricate relationships between celestial bodies may offer a more nuanced understanding of an individual’s personality and life path. It may all tap into the notion that the positions of stars and planets at the time of our birth may influence our characteristics and experiences. But simply sun sign matching is fun too.
So if you want to know which Netflix character you might be like the most, then read on without any further dilly-dallying.
Aries – David Rose, Schitt’s Creek
David may have his insecurities and think panic attacks are made up by celebrities to get attention. Still, he is confident and adventurous with a unique taste in things, which makes him a trendsetter. However, he can be impulsive and impatient, and his self-centred nature sometimes gets in the way. But even the toddlers of the zodiac are capable of growth, as we see in David throughout Schitt’s Creek.
Taurus – Geralt of Rivia, The Witcher
The Witcher’s Geralt of Rivia is known for his loyalty, patience, and reliability. He is one with nature but a creature of few words. Forever a centrist, he does have it in him to be fiercely protective of loved ones. He has a strong sense of responsibility.
Nevertheless, his stubbornness and cautious nature can get in his way.
Gemini – Wednesday Addams, Wednesday
Wednesday Addams is clever, intellectually curious, and adaptable, with a macabre sense of humour. However, she can be secretive and aloof, balancing her caring nature underneath her dark and witty demeanour.
Most people who disregard Geminis as airheads, incapable of dark endeavours and masking their true selves, tend not to know that 12 of our times’ most notorious serial killers have been Geminis.
Cancer – Annie Landsberg, Maniac
Annie Landsberg is empathetic, nurturing, and protective of those she cares for in Maniac. Her emotional sensitivity sometimes leads to mood swings and self-doubt, making her struggle with trusting others fully. And Cancer moons tend to be more prone to addiction after undergoing trauma.
But none of that renders them incapable of being total badasses who can go to the looniest lengths to preserve their sanity and that of those they love.
Leo – Titus Andromedon, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt
Titus Andromedon is confident, passionate, and charismatic. He can provide tremendous comedic relief even in a show that often feels like a fever dream with his larger-than-life personality but loses all interest when the spotlight shifts from them.
Even in situations where they show up for others, if they are not appreciated and somehow still the centre of attention, they are quick to ‘lemonade’ away.
Virgo – Princess Carolyn, BoJack Horseman
Princess Carolyn is practical, organised, and undoubtedly the most hardworking character in BoJack Horseman. Her nurturing side extends to her clients and friends but often fails to include herself. Her perfectionism and workaholic tendencies can affect her personal life, making them chronic worriers.
But sometimes, like most Virgos, Princess Carolyn needs to push away the clouds to recognise all the good things in her life.
Libra – Chidi Anagonye, The Good Place
Chidi Anagonye from The Good Place is the fairest of them all, so much so that it gives him literal stomach aches to make choices.
Nonetheless, he is intelligent and thoughtful. His indecisiveness and overthinking tendencies create challenges, but his sense of justice and wisdom make him a valuable advisor.
Scorpio – Holden Ford, Mindhunter
Holden Ford’s determination, resourcefulness, and streak of the freak make him an excellent investigator in Mindhunter. However, his emotionally reserved nature and relentless pursuit of his latest obsession can lead to challenges in his personal life.
But it also makes him a treasure trove of knowledge, both the regular and peculiar kind.
Sagittarius – BoJack Horseman, BoJack Horseman
BoJack Horseman may canonically be a Capricorn sun. But he is also literally a humanoid horse, and the symbol of Sagittarius is the mythological centaur, a half-human and half-horse. BoJack can be charming. However, his self-destructive tendencies and impulsiveness create internal conflicts. Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter, the planet of expansion and excess.
BoJack’s struggles with fame, addiction, and self-destructive tendencies could be seen as an exaggerated manifestation of these traits.
Capricorn – Cristina Yang, Grey’s Anatomy
Cristina Yang once said, “Oh, screw beautiful. I’m brilliant. If you want to appease me, compliment my brain,” and that right there is the very essence of a Capricorn person.
Yes, The Grey’s Anatomy’s Yang is ambitious, disciplined, and driven but also a workaholic. Her reserved nature can affect her personal relationships, but she will stick by the no-nonsense friends who accept her (and themselves) for who she is.
Aquarius – Eleven, Stranger Things
Eleven is independent, compassionate, and fiercely loyal in Stranger Things. Her aloof and guarded nature and her difficulty expressing emotions stem from her unusual upbringing. It makes her a unique and justice-driven (Saturn, the great justice giver, also rules Aquarians) character like most Aquarians, who can also give off alien-ish vibes.
Pisces – Rebecca Bunch, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
Rebecca Bunch is creative, empathetic, and intensely romantic in Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. There are layers to her personality. She can be tremendously intuitive and lost in her own head at the same time. Her impulsive and idealistic tendencies lead her to dream big, but she often struggles to set personal boundaries.
She feels most centred when she remembers to ground herself in reality, a hefty task for most Pisceans.
