Let Us Tell You The ‘Game Of Thrones’ Character You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign

The land of GoT is full of magic and superstition, a land where the designs of fate are evident in everyday life and where witches and dragons dictate the course of history, so what better way to honor it than to reveal which character you would be according to the personality traits of your Zodiac sign. Just please don’t go slaying dragons or setting cities on fire, please! 

We can’t help but wonder: would our Walter Mercado approve? Here are some of each signs main traits and why they fit the personality of some of the dozens of characters we have come to love and loath over almost a decade. Te vamos a extrañar, Juego de Tronos! 

Leo (July 23 – August 22)
What astrology says: the drama queen, basically. Gets others to express their feelings in a direct and truthful way.
So you are: Jon Snow, born Aegon Targaryen, the son of Lyanna Stark and Rhaegar Targaryen (sorry for the spoiler, camaradas!)

Jon Snow has been a somewhat disappointing character, as he has not shown the wisdom some were expecting from him. His low voice and moody persona make him the perfect Leo. What a drama king, honestly. You know nothing, Jon Snow. I mean, he died and came back…. for what? Not a lot of time to find that out. 

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
What astrology says: Virgos teach us that service is the best path to happiness, serving yourselves and others is paramount to being
So you are: Ser Brienne Tarth

Brienne is such a cool character that slays meanies and gender stereotypes. She is loyal beyond reproach and basically the friend we would all like by our side. We would love to see a spinoff show with just her delivering fierceness to the bad guys.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)
What astrology says: the diplomat. Libras hate chaos and therefore want people to hold hands and reach a compromise
So you are: Lord Tyrion Lannister

Credit: GameOfThrones / Instagram

Talk about a change in heart about a character! We started off kind of hating Tyrion, but as we came to know him and understand him, we realized that he is the diplomat who wants the least amount of blood shed. What a legend. La altura se mide de la cabeza al cielo. Special shoutout to Peter Dinklage, who has played this character magnificently.  

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
What astrology says: Scorpios are extremely intense and deep, everything is life or death for them and requires people to give their best
So you are: Lady Sansa Stark

Credit: GameOfThrones / Instagram

She has been forced to be wise beyond her years after seeing almost her whole family killed. She has had to take care of herself and don’t give her trust to anyone. Everything with her is deep… life has dealt her a tricky hand. Will she sit on the throne?

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
What astrology says: they take risks, are adventurous and chase the impossible
So you are: Grey Worm (Valyrian: Torgo Nudho)

Credit: GameOfThrones / Instagram

From slave to commander of a whole army. Grey Worm has defied the odds in life, war, and love. He takes risks, and it has paid off in terms of power, although he has suffered indescribable loss throughout his life. 

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
What astrology says: the master planner who seeks long term goals, he puts all the pieces in place for the dominoes to eventually fall
So you are: Melisandre, also known as Melisandre of Asshai, Lady Melisandre, The Red Woman and The Red Witch

Credit: GameOfThrones / Instagram

It took us ages to truly understand this character’s motivations. We fell in love with her weirdness and then marveled at her wisdom. She knew what is what all along, and played the long game. She saved them all, to be honest when she lit the fire to burn all those white walkers. 

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
What astrology says: the humanitarian and “mad scientist” of the horoscope, often wise beyond words
So you are: Brandon Stark, commonly called Bran

Credit: GameOfThrones / Instagram

He was forced to become a wise receptacle of ancient knowledge. It is hard to know where Bran starts and the Three-Eyed-Raven begins. He is the wisest of them all, a true water sign. 

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
What astrology says: the healer and artist, compassion and imagination are their motto
So you are: Samwell Tarly, or simply Sam

Credit: Game of Thrones / HBO

He is not very athletic, but what he lacks in muscles he makes up with wit, intelligence, and compassion. We just love hearing him talk: such a smart, loyal knight. Lo queremos como BFF, pero para ayer!

Aries (March 21 – April 19)
What astrology says: this sign belongs to individuals who are pioneers and fight for their beliefs. They are fearless
So you are: Arya Stark

Credit: GameOfThrones / Instagram

What a gem! Arya slayed the Night King and if it was up to her she would rule over all. She has already won our hearts and minds. Go Arya, go! She is all that the Starks stand for: honor, family, and roots. 

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
What astrology says: provides security and helps us get the job done
So you are: Sandor Clegane, popularly nicknamed “The Hound”

Credit: GameOfThrones / Instagram

He has few words but is a practical man who protects his master. Just before he crossed over to the land of the dead he protected Arya (or did Arya protect him?), showing what true loyalty looks like. He certainly redeemed 

Gemini (May 21 -July 21)
What astrology says: full of energy, they encourage us to be ourselves, even though this might be seen as “freaky” by some
So you are: Shae

Credit: Game of Thrones / HBO

We can divide Tyrion’s life in Before and After Shae! She taught him what true love is and made a good man out of him just before he set sail towards Essos. We can only imagine what her life with Tyrion would have been like had she not mate a bloody fate. 

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
What astrology says: individuals born under these signs are natural nurturers, they have deep roots, create nests and protect them
So you are: Daenerys I Targaryen, also known as Dany and Daenerys Stormborn

Yes, we know she broke a lot of hearts going full pyro, but she has goodness in her heart as well. She does care for her people and created a cozy home for her dragons, for whom she was a caring mother. The genius of this character lays in her many contradictions: passionate lover and cold stateswoman, mad queen, and mother of dragons.

Disney Is Debuting Their First Jewish Princess And Surprise! She’s Also Latina

Disney Is Debuting Their First Jewish Princess And Surprise! She’s Also Latina

We all know by now that is no “one way” to be Latinx. Latinos come in a variety of forms, from Black to white, tall to short, descended from Indigenous, African, and European populations. And while Roman Catholicism may be the dominant religion in most of Latinidad, it goes without saying that Latino culture is not a monolith. Latinos practice a variety of religions, from Islam to Buddhism to, yes, Judaism. 

And while most people don’t necessarily think of Judaism when they think of Latin America, there is, in fact, a small but proud population of Jewish Latinos who keep their culture alive through tradition and a strong sense of community. But being a part of such a small community within an already-marginalized community can feel isolating at times. Especially when there are no public role models to see yourself reflected in.

That’s why Tuesday’s news that Disney is debuting a Jewish-Latinx princess sent shock-waves through the internet. 

Walt Disney Television Animation News announced via Twitter that an upcoming Elena of Avalon episode in December would be featuring a “visiting princess” from a “Latino Jewish kingdom”.The as-yet-unnamed princess will be voiced by Jamie-Lynn Sigler, the actress famous for her portrayal of Meadow Soprano on HBO’s seminal masterpiece, “The Sopranos”. 

The Tweet also revealed that the princess would also make an appearance in Elana’s “royal coronation special” next year. Although we do not know any further details of Sigler’s character or her storyline, “Elena of Avalor” writer Rachel Ruderman gave a small preview of what’s to come. “A little over a year ago, I had the honor of writing an Elena of Avalor episode featuring Disney’s first Jewish princess,” Ruderman said via Twitter. She continued: “Jamie Lynn Sigler knocks the role out of the park (wait ’till you hear her song!) Can’t wait to share this one”.

In a move of conscious-casting on Disney’s part, Jamie Lynn Sigler herself happens to be both Latina and Jewish–a giant step for a media giant that can sometimes miss the mark with casting.

Raised by a Jewish father and a Cuban mother, Sigler grew up in New York City as part of a multicultural family.In the past, Sigler has talked about being raised Jewish–attending Hebrew school, having a Bat Mitzvah, and even going on a Birth Right trip to Israel in 2008. 

This episode can serve as an educational experience for many people (including those of Latinx descent) who are unaware that Jewish Latinos even exist. In fact, what some people might not even know, is that the term “Sephardic” (a term used to describe Jewish people of European descent) literally means “of Spain or Portuguese descent” in old Hebrew. In other words, it’s not a stretch to imagine a character of both Latin and Jewish roots on our TV screens. In fact, it’s completely historically plausible!

Naturally, both the Latinx and Jewish Twitter population is super excited at this groundbreaking news.

As we mentioned before, the acknowledgment of Jewish Latinos in popular culture is such a rarity. When the media shines a spotlight on such a marginalized group of people, the advent is worth celebrating. And even though changes are slow in the making, any progress on the representation front is a step in the right direction.

Jamie Lynn Sigler herself expressed her excitement at the news, calling to attention the novelty of her position:

Yes, it’s exciting that the Jewish Latinx population has finally gotten some princess representation, but it’s still a little bit frustrating that we had to wait until 2019 for a Jewish princess. We have a long way to go.

This Latina Jew was incredibly excited at the prospect of having the chance to see her own unique lifestyle reflected onscreen:

The self-styled “Jewyorican” is one of many New York-based Puerto-Rican Jews who identify fully with both cultures. It’s not as rare as people think.

Some Latinx Jews took to Twitter to give some suggestions on how Disney could go about bringing the new character to life:

This Hispanic Linguistics Professor suggested incorporating the ancient Judeo-Spanish language of Ladino into the show. 

This multi-cultural woman celebrated the inclusion of multiple cultures in one character:

Families like hers are the way of the future–at least according to statistics. Although many media outlets still see American families in black and white, the rest of us living our lives know that our identities are increasingly a hodgepodge of cultures. And we wouldn’t have it any other way.

From Taurus To Cancer, These Are The Most Compatible Signs With Virgo

Who are we kidding: one of the major reasons all of us check our horoscope is to find out what the future has in store for us when it comes to love and lust. After all, you know that if you’re really meant to be together, then it’ll be written in the stars. 

So Virgo, in honor of your birthday, we’ve put together a quick guide to point you in the direction of your soulmate.

Virgo with an Aries (March 21 – April 19) creates an explosively fiery passion.

Instagram / @pavingsunrays

Part of what attracts you to Aries is the fact that they do everything with so much passion. You can’t help but be attracted to the fire in their soul. But Virgo, you can only function on their level for so long until you burn out. For you, a relationship with Aries takes work.

Compatibility: Low

Virgo with a Taurus (April 20 – May 20) is a matchmaker’s pick!

Instagram / @the.bridal.visions

Taurus are known for being super grounded and down to earth, and that’s exactly the kind of person you need in your life, Virgo. Your drive for perfectionism means that your Taurus can put things into perspective for you – they’re the yin to your yang, so to speak.

Compatibility: High

Virgo with a Gemini (May 21 – June 20) sees opposites attract.

Instagram / @vcheckmark

If one of your brutally honest friends had to describe you, Virgo, they’d say you’re a bit of a square. And, they wouldn’t exactly be wrong. That’s why Gemini can get on your nerves a bit … they’ve always got their heads up in the clouds when you’re trying to be realistic!

Compatibility: Low

Virgo with a Cancer (June 21 – July 22) means both love and lust.

Instagram / @mannyg520

While on the surface it would seem like Cancer is a bit too emotional for you, Virgo, it turns out that they’re exactly the sort of person you need in your life – and they need you, too. Your pragmatism in the face of their emotional swings is what keeps them sane. And they remind you to stay in touch with your softer side. So you know what this means? You guys have fabulous, fulfilling sex. Noice.

Compatibility: High

Virgo with a Leo (July 23 – August 22) is one hell of a rollercoaster!

Instagram / @happy_healthy_fitcouple

Leo can definitely test your patience, Virgo. You’re a quiet achiever, whereas Leo likes to get all of the attention, wherever they can get it. Leo’s got a massive ego that needs stroking … and you’re more critical. As you can imagine, it’s pretty much the perfect environment for lots of silly bickering. Then again, every couple has those moments, right?

Compatibility: Medium

Virgo with a Virgo (August 23 – September 22) asks the question: can you ever have too much of a good thing?

Instagram / @miles.and.smiles

You’d think that being with someone who functions on the same vibe as you would be a match made in heaven. But, that’s only true to a certain extent. Given that the two of you are perfectionists and workaholics, you’d make a great power couple … that has almost zero romantic and sexual chemistry. If you want it to work, you’ve gotta work at it, Virgo.

Compatibility: Medium

Virgo with a Libra (September 23 – October 22) meshes realism with idealism.

Instagram / @vcheckmark

When people think Libra, they think social butterfly. When people think Virgo, they think shy. Virgo, you’re a realist, whereas Libras are an idealist. They say that opposites attract, but in your case, you’d probably find that the differences between you and Libra would eventually drag you away from each other. The both of you would really have to put in an effort to find your way back.

Compatibility: Low

Virgo with a Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) sees things heat up in the bedroom.

Instagram / @smperez

While Scorpio and Virgo can build a really secure and safe relationship, you kids can come unstuck when it comes to your attitudes towards the bedroom. Scorpio tends to be all about the real carnal side of the beast with two backs, whereas Virgo is more about connecting emotionally through sex.

Compatibility: Medium

Virgo with a Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21) mixes fun and stability.

Instagram / @littledolewhips

It’s nice when you meet someone who’s as adaptable as you are. But in the case of Sagittarius, Virgo, you might find that they’re a little too spontaneous for your liking. That being said, they might get you to loosen up a little, which is never a bad thing in your case!

Compatibility: Medium

Virgo with a Capricorn (December 22 – January 20) is a match made in heaven!

Instagram / @bonitachinitalatina

Capricorn’s brand of perfectionism fits pretty well with your brand of perfectionism, Virgo. The difference is that you strive for better because you want to do good, whereas Capricorn wants to be good – at everything they do. And that makes you good together!

Compatibility: High

Virgo with an Aquarius (January 21 – February 18) is a hella smart match.

Instagram / @brazilcupid

Because both you and Aquarius are intellectual sorts, you’d find that you’d have what Alanis Morissette called, “intellectual intercourse.” But since the pair of you have such different approaches to life, you’d probably find it a lot easier to work on a friendship together, rather than a real steamy, romantic relationship.

Compatibility: Medium

Virgo with a Pisces (February 19 – March 20) means sweetness in spades.

Instagram / @yamelyhr

There’s no denying it, there’s definitely an attraction between you two. You’re both devoted, thoughtful and detail-oriented souls – but where Pisces is a dreamer, you’re much more realistic. If you’re both able to navigate your differences, then there’s no stopping you! Chances are, though, you’d find that your relationship will always be an ongoing project.
