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 extrañamos, 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.

Korean Dark Comedy ‘Parasite’ Becomes The First Non-English Language Movie To Win The Oscar For Best Picture

The Academy Awards last night brought many surprise wins and losses. “Parasite,” a Korean dark comedy about the class struggle in South Korea, swept with four major awards. The movie took home the Oscar for Best Director, Best International Film, Best Original Screenplay, and the most sought after Best Picture. The night was history-making as “Parasite” is the first non-English language movie to win Best Picture.

Director Bong Joon-ho made history last night with his film “Parasite.”

“Parasite” was competing for the award against “1917,” “Jojo Rabbit,” “The Irishman,” “Little Women,” “Marriage Story,” “Ford v Ferrari,” “Joker,” and “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”

Director Bong Joon-ho made history with his film. “Parasite” is the first-ever non-English language film to win the award for Best Picture. There have only been 11 non-English movies nominated for Best Picture out of the 563 that have been nominated in the Academy’s history. The award is the only one where all Academy members are allowed to cast a vote for and is presented to the producers of the film. Last year’s winner was “Green Book.”

The unexpected and welcomed victory is an important moment in Oscar’s history and people are taking notice.

In a time when certain voices are being oppressed, the elevation of these kinds of stories and communities is important. Representation matters and film is one way we can show other cultures and participate in major cultural conversations.

Compared to the rest of the movies nominated for Best Picture, “Parasite” had the lowest production budget.

The film, which cost about $11 million to produce, became Bong Joon-ho’s first film to gross over $100 million worldwide. The movie earned $167.6 million worldwide with $35.5 million made in the U.S.

“I feel like a very opportune moment in history is happening right now,” producer Kwak Sin Ae said through a translator.

The historic moment has angered some people who wish the award went to an American film.

Earlier during the award season, Bong Joon-ho stated that the Best Picture award was a local award. The statement, which caught everyone’s attention, was an unintentional drag of the Academy while also painting an honest picture of the award’s history.

The U.S. is how to the largest Korean diaspora community in the world. Around 2.2 million people in the U.S. identify as being of Korean descent. The Korean community makes up about 0.7 percent of the U.S. population. South Koreans make up 99 percent of those with Korean heritage living in the U.S.

Yet, a larger chorus of voices are praising the film and celebrating the historic win.
