GOT Characters Matched With Their Zodiac Sign

Have you ever wondered who your Game of Thrones counterpart is? Wonder no longer, amigos! With the series finale on the horizon, we’ve consulted the stars, read the books, and watched the show to find out who you’d be in the land of Westeros. Remember – when you play the Game of Thrones, you win or you die. Just a warning, though: this post isn’t spoiler-free, so if you’re not caught up, it’s time for you to watch some TV!

Aries (March 21 – April 19): Daenerys Targaryen

Did someone mention the god of war? Because as the conqueror of Essos, the First of your Name, Queen of the Andals, the Rhoynar and the First Men, Lady of the Seven Kingdoms and Protector of the Realm, Lady of Dragonstone, Queen of Meereen, Khaleesi of the Great Grass Sea, the Unburnt, Breaker of Chains and Mother of Dragons, you make the best candidate for taking the Iron Throne. That doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll keep it.

As a fire sign, flames don’t scare you. In fact, you’d happily stand in dragon fire. It gives you the best view when you want to watch the world burn.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Jon Snow

If anyone knows you for anything, they know you for being one of the most honorable people they’ve ever met. Despite the fact that you don’t want to be a ruler, you make a great leader simply because you’re always thinking of what’s best for your subjects. You’d happily bend the knee if it meant securing the safety of your people.

But please. Don’t. Sleep. With. Your. Aunt. It’s not going to work out well, for anyone.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Tyrion Lannister

Instagram / @thefan.for.all

You might be clever, but you know what people remember about you? Your ability to talk. And talk. And talk. And talk. You just don’t shut up.

It doesn’t help that you usually have a glass of something in your hand, even at the best of times. It might make you you, but it also means that you have zero filters, too. Sometimes a little tact wouldn’t go astray.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Samwell Tarly

Instagram / @gameofthrones.official.it

No matter how many white walkers you kill, everyone knows you for being a softy at heart. It’s what made the perfect storm when you met Jorah Mormont, and came across the cure for greyscale. Your propensity to care makes you a great healer.

Instagram / @arte_manzano

Just … uh … don’t get your family torched by dragons any time soon.

Leo (July 23 – August 22): Cersei Lannister

Instagram / @cerseigotfan

You’re fierce, and you love the spotlight. You take the house Lannister motto, “hear me roar!” to the next level. You know that whatever the people say about the dragon queen, you’d still make the best ruler of the seven kingdoms. After all, you’ve pretty much been running Westeros since the times of Robert Baratheon, anyway.

Instagram / @marijafinn

You always pay your debts – whether that be in gold, or in vengeance.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22): Brienne of Tarth

Instagram / @oathdreamerfic

Simply because Virgo is the sign of the virgin doesn’t mean that you have to stay that way forever. Though, you’ll always keep a little bit of your innocence, since you are just that that innately good and honorable.

Instagram / @kate_woodlover

You’re honest, hardworking, and legendary with a sword. All you really want is to be respected for who you are as a person.

Libra (September 23 – October 22): Olenna Tyrell

Instagram / @the.daily.meme.queen

You know how to keep your priorities balanced, and you tend to have little schemes all going at once. Though, looking at you, most people wouldn’t be able to pick it. What you’re really known for is your sassy tongue.

Instagram / @hiphopnerdgasm

The most important thing for you on your death bed is for Cersei to know it was you.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): Yara/Asha Greyjoy 

Instagram / @vesleskjor_cosplay

If you’re a fan of the books, or the TV show, will depend on how you know Yara/Asha Greyjoy. You know that with your vicious battle and leadership skills, you’d make the perfect ruler for the Iron Islands – even if there’s never been a woman on the throne there before.

Instagram / @rmkworks

You’re also a bit of a flirt, and don’t care who knows about it. So what if you bed a few men, or women while conquering Westeros? You’ll still get the job done, and reclaim what should be rightfully yours as a Greyjoy.

Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21): Bronn of the Blackwater

Instagram / @serbronndelleacquenere

Generally speaking, you’re pretty happy-go-lucky … as far as the Seven Kingdoms goes. Emphasis on the “lucky” part – between the Battle of the Blackwater, facing off against a couple of dragons, and your propensity to say whatever’s on your mind, it’s surprising you’ve made it this far in the Game of Thrones.

Instagram / @slane_artist

Your grand ambition is to own a castle and spend whatever years you have left in you drinking the day away. And to never have to deal with the Lannisters, ever again.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 20): Sansa Stark

Instagram / @roberto_brunetti_

After the things you’ve seen, and the people you’ve met, you’re an old soul at heart. You know when to keep your head down and work in the shadows. It’s pretty frustrating to you when you know that you’ve got a pretty keen sense of judgment, but no-one seems to listen to your advice.

Instagram / @studiosuhye

You’re a perfectionist, and you know that you’d make the best candidate for running the North. And to be honest, most people know that you’d be the best for the North, too.

Aquarius (January 21 – February 18): Arya Stark

Instagram / @game_of_thrones_uk

Quirky doesn’t even begin to cover it. People know you for being weird, and there’s no way you’d ever take the time to explain yourself – that would be too tedious. You can be vicious if need be. But, you’re clever and fast enough to also be able to take down the Night King.

Instagram / @h___s__m

Anyone who’s lucky enough to get close to you will find out that you do have a heart of gold, and a real sense of honor and fairness. Let’s just hope that they don’t get physically close to you. That’d be dangerous. For them.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20): Catelyn Stark

Instagram / @gaameeoofthroonees

People sometimes forget that you were born under the sigil of the fish. But, no matter what happens to you, or where you are, you know that it’s a part of who you are as a person. You’re guided by the adage: “family, duty, honor”.

Instagram / @robertoonilustrador

You have so much love for your family and friends, so it pains you when they don’t take your advice on really important matters. You only have their best intentions at heart! Just watch your back if you’ve got plans to go to any weddings anytime soon.

Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie Becomes Marvel’s First Bisexual Superhero And It’s About Damn Time

Tessa Thompson’s Valkyrie Becomes Marvel’s First Bisexual Superhero And It’s About Damn Time

movies.mxdwn.com

Over the weekend, at Comic-Con in San Diego, our queen Tessa Thompson dropped some huge news about Valkyrie –– the character she plays in the Thor films. Are you ready?

The Marvel Cinematic Universe will get its first LGBTQ superhero in the upcoming Thor: Love and Thunder

“First of all, as new King  [of Asgard], she needs to find her queen,” Thompson said during a panel at Comic-Con. “So that will be her first order of business. She has some ideas. Keep you posted.”

Thompson alluding to the LGBTQ storyline was met with roaring applause and left many MCU fans wondering about her role as Valkyrie. Marvel president confirmed Thompson’s statement, making Valkyrie the first openly LGBTQ superhero in MCU history. 

“The answer is yes,” Feige told io9 of the LGBTQ character and storyline. “How that impacts the story remains to be seen with that level of representation you’ll see across our films, not in just Thor 4.” 

For diehard MCU fans, this should come as no surprise because the comic books depict Valkyrie as bisexual.

However, the films were notorious for only glossing over this backstory and simply flirting with the fact that Thompson’s Valkyrie is bisexual. 

“In the canon, [Valkyrie] is bisexual. You see her with women and men, so that was my intention in playing her,” Thompson told Variety earlier this year. “Obviously, at the forefront of most of these stories is not typically their romantic life. They have big stakes, like saving the world, so that tends to sort of trump.”

According to Entertainment Weekly, it’s also important to emphasize the fact that Valkyrie is the first “openly” LGBTQ superhero

“The ‘openly’ matters when it comes to visibility. Valkyrie in the comics is bisexual and Thompson has been vocal about that fact on social media. However, when it came to Thor: Ragnarok, a scene was cut in which a woman would’ve been seen sneaking out of Valkyrie’s bedroom and the film, instead, flirted with sexual tension between Valkyrie and Hemsworth’s Thor,” writes Nick Romano for Entertainment Weekly

Aside from Thompson’s Valkyrie becoming MCU’s first openly bisexual superhero, Marvel made other important announcements showing the latest efforts to diversify their films a lot more.

52-year-old Salma Hayek becomes the first Arab and Mexican actress with a main role in the MCU. It was also announced this weekend at Comic-Con that she’s set to star as Ajak in The Eternals. The Lebanese-Mexican actress will star alongside Angelina Jolie talk about a dynamic duo. 

She announced her latest role in the new Marvel film on Instagram, saying: “I’m so excited to join the Marvel family as Ajak, the mother of all Eternals. It used to be the father of all Eternals, but girls… this is OUR time!!!!!” The film is set to release on November 6, 2020.  

Basically, Lena Waithe summed it up for us. “Captain America is black. Thor is a woman. the new Blade got two Oscars. 007 is a black woman. And The Little Mermaid bout to have locs. Shit. Just. Got. Real,” she tweeted. 

In case you missed it, in Avengers: Endgame, Thor passed down the mantle of King of New Asgard to Valkyrie. Now, in Marvel’s Phase Four lineup, we’ll follow her journey as King in Thor: Love and Thunder. The latest Thor installment will also see the return of Natalie Portman as Jane Foster to wield Mjolnir. Although it won’t hit theaters until November 2021, these latest teases and updates are enough to hold us over. 

Of course, Twitter went wild with the news that Thompson becomes the first LGBTQ superhero in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Last year in a profile from Net-a-Porter, published toward the end of Pride Month, Thompson also subtly came out and put rumors to rest surrounding her sexuality. “I can take things for granted because of my family –– it’s so free and you can be anything that you want to be. I’m attracted to men and also to women. If I bring a woman home, [or] a man, we don’t even have to have a discussion.” 

And don’t think for a minute that any of us missed the big MCU switch up.

The new movies are set to be packed with a whole lot of women.

And literally, everyone has an idea of who Valkyrie’s queen will be.

Literally, we’ve been stanning this relationship for too long.

We can’t wait to see Thompson’s Valkyrie also have that type of freedom in the upcoming Thor movie –– especially given the fact that there’s been a lack of LGBTQ representation in comic book movies. 

According to Entertainment Weekly, Joe Russo portrayed the first openly gay character in the MCU with his appearance in Endgame and Zach Barack became the first trans actor to appear in a Marvel movie (Spider-Man: Far From Home). 

It’s about time for this long-overdue representation.

Oh, and who will play Thompson’s queen? We can’t wait to find out. 

It’s Leo Season: Here’s How You’ll Go Broke Based Off Your Zodiac Sign

It’s Leo Season: Here’s How You’ll Go Broke Based Off Your Zodiac Sign

Praise be, with mercury’s retrograde behind us, we’re looking straight ahead to celebrating Leo in all its fiery glory. The retrograde has just rained twelve levels of emotional basura down upon us and Leo is going to burn it all up. We’re stepping out of the depths of emotional mierda and letting our strange selves be set free, thanks to Leo.

We’re here for all the self-care our hearts need, and after such a trying month behind us, and indulgent Leo egging us on, we’re all about to go broke. Here’s how you will.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

We’re feeling turned around after Mercury in retrograde and want to feel safe again. Taurus, you might be feeling like now’s the time to invest in that home security system and you’re right.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Virgo, we know that by telling you this, you’re going to feel obligated to buy it, but that’s the point. You would need to buy this Ezy Dog $99 seatbelt harness for your dog because you know it’s the only crash tested harness that will actually protect your baby in the case of an emergency. Earth signs, we’re here for security.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

All the earth signs are going to be looking for ways to ground themselves, especially after the chaos of yester-season. My fellow Capricorns, we are laughably practical in how we spend our money, but it speaks to what makes us feel good–by grounding into the earth. I already bought four pair of shoes this week, hbu?

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Leo has you feeling ready to create the life you’ve always wanted to have. You’ve had an international trip on your mind, and you know what, there’s no time like the present. Pull the trigger and buy that flight to Colombia, girl.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Feliz cumple, Leo! This your time to shine, and the stars are making it so that you get the most bang for your buck. Throw yourself that party. Go on that weekend cruise. Celebrate every version of yourself you’ve brought to your birthdays and toast to next year’s.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Sagittarius, you’re such a giving soul, and Leo just brings out the extravagance of generosity in you. You’ve wanted to take your mama back to Cuba for a minute. Do it.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

For you, dear Cancer, indulgence is best spent shared. You’re on the verge of going broke to share an emotional connection and special memory with your partner. 

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

It may sound too on-the-nose, Scorpio, but both you and Capricorn are feeling the kink in the air. We don’t need to tell you to be sex-positive. We’re just giving you a heads up that you about to go broke on a sex toy subscription box. : P 

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Sweet Pisces, your heart is so full this Leo season, and only you could offer the love and care a special needs animal requires. We think you’re about to go broke paying medical bills for that special three-legged turtle in your life.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Gemini, this season could go one of two ways. You’re either about to drop money on a couple kegs and throw a party, or this political season has you wanting to invest in the future. If it’s the latter, may we suggest the Trans Latina Coalition because you know justice is intersectional and trans Latina immigrants are at high risk.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Dear Libra, this season, Leo won’t have you stray too far from what you know. Libra would go broke buying VIP tickets to the work convention they’ve always needed to elevate their networking game.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Aquarius, there’s no doubt about it. You’re going to invest in the stars by actually buying one and naming it after yourself. 😂
