Which Glee Character You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign

A series about high schoolers in show choir might not sound like it comes from the same showrunners as "American Horror Story," but "Glee" is just that. Starring Lea Michele as high schooler Rachel Berry, the show follows a group of students going through the usual trials and tribulations of high school as they sing in the school's show choir New Directions. Run by Spanish teacher Mr. Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison), the group goes through competitions, pranks by rival choirs, and several canceled musicals by the end of the series.

The show may not have aged as well as some would have hoped, but it remains a cult classic, fondly remembered by many as a series they loved growing up. Its stories of perseverance, triumph, and community can be powerful, even with all the intentional camp. Whether you followed the show for the music, the dances, or the drama, the characters made "Glee" the guilty pleasure it's become. Each one marches to the beat of their own drum, and there's someone for every viewer to relate to. Read on to find out which "Glee" character you are based on your zodiac sign.

Aries: Coach Sue Sylvester

There is no better Aries (March 21 to April 19) in "Glee" than Coach Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch). This fire sign is a trailblazer, just like the award-winning cheerleading coach. Despite what people think about her, she pioneers a cheerleading team that's known across the world for their high-caliber routines, and she brings in more money to William McKinley High School than the football team does.

Like an Aries, Sue never knows when to quit. She spends the majority of her character arc on the show trying to take down the Glee Club, even after they win a national championship and are on the same level as the Cheerios. When she faces setbacks, she just keeps finding new ways to bring them down again, like trying to prevent them from staging "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" or casting a transgender student as Rizzo in the club's production of "Grease" in Season 4.

In true fire sign fashion, the cheerleading coach is bold in her moves against people she has issues with, but she can also be fiercely loyal to her friends, like Becky Jackson. She's undeniably a person of extremes, but that's just what you get when you deal with an Aries.

Taurus: Tina Cohen-Chang

Though canonically a Capricorn, Tina Cohen-Chang (Jenna Ushkowitz) is a textbook Taurus (April 20 to May 20). The earth sign is persistent and reliable but can be narrow-minded to anyone else's vision but their own, even when that vision isn't practical anymore. This perfectly sums up Tina's character arc in "Glee."

As a member of the club, she's reliable and always shows up to rehearsal on time. When girls in New Directions are jumping ship to a new club so they can get more solos, Tina stays. It isn't a secret that she also wants those solos, but she isn't willing to leave her friends for them. However, when the chance to become the "New Rachel" is presented, she's persistent in her efforts to get more time in the spotlight.

The downside to Tina's persistence is that she can be a bit of a diva — so much so that she gets tunnel vision when it comes to her senior year. After Rachel gives her stamp of approval for Tina to become the new main soloist, she can't imagine having to have a sing-off for the position. She spends her final year of high school with a perfect picture of how things should be, from becoming valedictorian to winning prom queen. And when something changes that vision, shaking up her stable Taurus world, Tina often reacts poorly. 

Gemini: Emma Pillsbury

There is no better fit for the sign of Gemini (May 21 to June 20) in "Glee" than guidance counselor Emma Pillsbury (Jayma Mays). Those who bear the dualistic air sign are known for their multifaceted personalities, making Emma a great match. Many know her simply as the counselor with OCD and a strong aversion to germs, but those who get close to her see the passionate person who lies beneath.

Geminis are fans of love, and so is Emma. Over the course of the series, she almost marries football coach Ken Tanaka (Patrick Gallagher) and annuls a marriage with dentist Carl Howell (John Stamos) before developing a relationship with and eventually marrying Will Schuester. She has the most engagements of any other character on the show, and arguably one of the most successful relationships when it's finally realized.

Geminis are also excellent communicators, which comes across in how Emma handles most situations and in the advice she gives students. It takes her some time to be honest with herself, but that's just the two different sides of her fighting for control. Once she opens up to someone, she tells them exactly what she's thinking and attempts to be fully honest. Emma always knows the perfect thing to say to students when they're struggling, from encouraging them to pursue their dreams to giving them key information to handle difficult life situations.

Cancer: Kurt Hummel

Cancers (June 21 to July 22) tend to be detached at first, but once you're inside their walls, they can be the most emotionally generous people you'll ever know. This describes Kurt Hummel (Chris Colfer) perfectly in "Glee." Though standoffish and defensive when you first approach him, He's one of the most intuitive and loyal friends once he steps out of his shell, and he's always ready to give his friends the support they need.

During Season 3, he and Rachel (Lea Michele) are shocked when they realize just how talented the pool of applicants for their dream college is. As Rachel has a meltdown in her car, Kurt gives her the sweetest pep talk a friend possibly could, boosting her confidence and assuring her that despite everything, her ambition alone will get her into NYADA.

This water sign can also fall in love quickly. That's exactly what Kurt does when he meets Blaine Anderson (Darren Criss), a member of the Glee Club at Dalton Academy, in Season 2. Within just a few weeks, he becomes completely smitten, which is evident from how he talks about his new boyfriend throughout Season 2 and how insistent he is that Blaine hang out with his friends.

Leo: Rachel Berry

Leos (July 23 to August 22) are bold and dramatic, and there's no better description for Rachel Berry. As the fire sign, she has incredibly high-self esteem, which she never hides behind false modesty. Rachel makes it clear that she's the one to have your eye on, even if it means putting down her friends in the process. In Season 2, scared to not be the center of attention and the lead soloist in Glee Club, she sends a talented singer to a house known for illegal activities, telling her that's where the auditions are. Only a Leo would feel the need to take such drastic measures to ensure they remain in the spotlight.

Rachel's energy for show choir, performing, and the industry as a whole is intense. Leos are known for this intensity in everything they do, and the Tony Award-winning character is no exception. At various points in the series, the club is almost forced to pack it in. Rachel takes a leadership role in these situations, as any Leo would, and uses her passion to inspire the rest of the members to continue their journey. 

Don't mistake a Leo's confidence for a lack of work ethic. Rachel always puts the work in to get to where she wants to go. She practices her catalog of songs regularly, takes dance classes, and does anything she thinks will make her a better performer. While she is extremely self-assured, it isn't without effort.

Virgo: Will Schuester

One of Will Schuester's key personality traits is his inability to let down the people in his life. From the Glee Club students to his romantic partners, he goes out of his way to give them what they need, even if it means taking on a second job as the part-time after-hours janitor at his first job so he and his wife Terri (Jessalyn Gilsig) can afford every part of the fancy new house she wants. This alone makes him the show's resident Virgo (August 23 to September 22).

Those who bear the earth sign also expect perfection from themselves, which usually ends up with them projecting it onto the people around them. This happens regularly with Mr. Schue. From the start of Season 1, Will has the expectation that the Glee Club will immediately start winning national competitions simply because he took over. He's used to how it was when he was a member of the club, and he often boils over and passes that pressure onto his students. In Season 3, after their humiliating loss at Nationals, he pushes them even harder, telling them, "It's not about doing your best anymore. It's about doing better." This causes one student to pull away and join a different club. It's not the first time his pressure causes someone to quit Glee Club, and it's not the last.

Libra: Artie Abrams

Libras (September 23 to October 22) turn their dreams into realities. The character who does that the best in "Glee" is Artie Abrams (Kevin McHale). He never lets his disability get in his way, even when he wants to do activities that people think he isn't cut out for. His dream is to become a film director, and he works hard to make it a reality.

Artie doesn't let his insecurities get in his way, and he takes the chance to move to New York so he can attend film school. During the flash-forward in the final episode of "Glee," we see that he indeed becomes a director and that his films are accepted into major festivals. Despite the adversity Artie faces, he builds his dream career brick by brick, as any Libra would.

This air sign is arguably the most balanced of the signs. When tough decisions have to be made, like who will fill Rachel's shoes in Season 4, Artie is the one selected by the group to pick which performer it will be. He's deeply trusted by his peers to make unbiased decisions involving the club, which speaks to his character. In his senior year, he co-directs "Grease," again trusted by the group to be a fair casting agent. There's no other student his peers would put that kind of faith in, showing just how much of a Libra Artie is. 

Scorpio: Santana Lopez

Santana Lopez (Naya Rivera) always stands up for what she believes in and is unapologetically honest and blunt. In short, she's a Scorpio (October 23 to November 21). Her honesty is often rude or hostile, especially when it comes to teasing Sam about his physical appearance, showing that she's never afraid to speak her mind. Her hot takes often help her friends, though, calling out when they should be treated better or when they could be improving in some aspect of their life. This is why Scorpios can be great friends. 

This water sign often forges its own path. The former cheerleader does exactly that when she drops out of college and moves to New York to pursue a career in the arts. Her efforts pay off when she snags a commercial before Kurt or Rachel book any professional work, and she later earns the role of Rachel's understudy in "Funny Girl." If that isn't creating your own path, what is?

Santana also stands her ground, no matter the consequences, like Scorpios always do. When she comes out as a lesbian to her grandma in Season 3, she's immediately disowned. While this hurts her, and her grandma tries to shove her back into the closet to save their relationship, Santana refuses to hide who she is anymore. While this means her grandma doesn't want to see her again, she stands up for herself and who she wants to be.

Sagittarius: Blaine Anderson

A Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21) is a natural-born leader full of spirit. Blaine, a transfer to William McKinley High School from Dalton Academy, exhibits this in everything he does. Though Finn often shuts him down when he tries to lead the Glee Club, it doesn't deter Blaine from continuing to step up into the role as needed, like when the seniors graduate or when he temporarily goes back to the Warblers at Dalton.

His adventurous spirit is shown in his song selection throughout the show. While Rachel usually sings strong ballads and Kurt belts out wonderful show tunes on various topics, Blaine leans into Top 10, punchy numbers like "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F.)" and "Raise Your Glass." Even when he's feeling down, he sings songs like these, just slowing down the tempo a bit. His fire sign spirit is contagious — reflected in how often his peers join in on these numbers or get excited about his performances. 

However, Sagittarians can often put themselves above the people they care about in the worst ways, which Blaine also does. The biggest instance of this is when he dates Dave Karofsky (Max Adler) after he and Kurt break up. The catch is that Dave was one of Kurt's worst bullies when he was in high school. Sagittarians are known for moving from one thing to the next in fast fashion, and not always in a good way.

Capricorn: Quinn Fabray

Quinn Fabray (Dianna Agron) perfectly encapsulates the strengths and weaknesses of Capricorns (December 22 to January 19). The earth sign thrives on boundaries and order, which is exactly how the cheerleader survives high school. She creates the perfect sense of order, from being in the best club to having the most popular boyfriend. Her plan is for her and Finn to be prom royalty, followed by her attending a top college like Yale. Her reaction to how that plan is seemingly shattered by her pregnancy shows just how much she needs her life to follow her predetermined path. After all, a Capricorn's ability to plan and set boundaries is both a weakness and a strength.

The earth sign is often concerned with how people see them. Quinn is worried about how it looks when she's removed as captain of the Cheerios, how people will react to her pregnancy (especially because she's president of the Celibacy Club), and even how joining Glee Club could impact her reputation at first. She moves to McKinley to start over because she was unpopular and conventionally unattractive in middle school, and she wants to be perceived as something else. That's also why she goes by Quinn instead of her legal first name of Lucy. While the cheerleader-turned-singer grows out of this throughout the show, it's still one of the core parts of her personality. 

Aquarius: Mercedes Jones

Every Aquarius (January 20 to February 18) is fiercely independent and unlike anyone else in the world. In "Glee," the character who matches the air sign best is Mercedes Jones (Amber Riley). Season 3 is a real turning point for Mercedes as she grows into her true self. Aquarians believe that people have to evolve and grow, and that's exactly what Mercedes finally lets herself do. She wants to be a performer in the spotlight and gains the confidence to make it happen. She joins the rival choir and finally has her big moment, which wouldn't have happened if she hadn't blazed her own trail.

Aquarians are humanitarians, always trying to make the world better for themselves and others. Mercedes tries to do this when she rebels against her record label. When she refuses to dress in the clothes they want her to wear for her album cover, she takes her songs and walks. She's protesting against the sexualization of women in the industry, and even if it seems like it kills her career, it actually opens her up to the best opportunities yet. 

In the final episode of "Glee," Mercedes tells her friends she's been chosen as the opening act on Beyonce's world tour, and it's revealed that she's already headlined her own tour. She's able to change people's minds about her and cause change in the industry, helping to pave the way for other young women to follow.

Pisces: Finn Hudson

Finn Hudson is arguably the character with the strongest moral compass in "Glee." This makes him a textbook Pisces (February 19 to March 20). He's the one character who always makes a point of being careful with his words and owning when he's in the wrong. When he calls Brittany stupid in Season 3, he immediately realizes what he's done. Unlike other characters who've said the same thing, he genuinely apologizes to her and strives to do better. He does the same thing when he uses a slur to refer to Sue's baby in Season 4. Even when he briefly ignores his compass, he goes back to it and uses it to correct his actions and own up to his mistakes. 

A water sign, Pisces is naturally intuitive. When Finn decides he needs to let Rachel go to New York on her own, even though he wants to be there with her, he follows his instincts. It's clear the decision is hard for him to make, but he knows it's what needs to happen for both of them to grow into the people they're meant to be. This shows another strength of Pisces — that they love intensely. Only someone that loves in this way could make the decision Finn makes, knowing how much it would hurt both parties even if it's for the best.
