The Harley Quinn Character You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign

HBO Max's "Harley Quinn" may be a colorful series, but it also revels in playing within the gray area. Within the binary categorizations of good and evil that define superhero comics, Harley Quinn and her squad are technically on the villain side, but there is certainly nuance within these distinctions. After all, heroism and villainry exist on a spectrum, right?

Indeed, one of the most interesting aspects of the show is the way it pokes fun at the arbitrary distinctions between heros and villains. You may think you know the characters on "Harley Quinn" -– especially since many of them debuted decades ago –- but the series has fun playing with your expectations about who these people (and creatures) really are and who they might become. Does Harley Quinn have the capacity to be a caring, supportive partner and an honorable leader? Can the famously misanthropic Poison Ivy learn to put her trust those she cares about? And how did the Joker become someone's stepdad?

It may be a 20-minute animated comedy series, but "Harley Quinn" is as much about the development of its characters as it is about superheroic — or villainous — antics. If you love the show because of how it plays with archetypes, then you're in the right place. The characters on "Harley Quinn" might resent being defined by the stars, but that's exactly what we're about to do. Keep reading to find out which "Harley Quinn" character you are based on your zodiac sign.

Aries: Harley Quinn

Harley Quinn (Kaley Cuoco) is so obviously an Aries that it's almost comical — no pun intended. The first sign of the zodiac, Aries are fire signs associated with the ram and the warrior. Impatient, competitive, and driven, those born under the sign are quick to anger and quick to act. Some of the most courageous and confident individuals in the zodiac, those born under this sign move through life with passion. Though anger often features prominently in their emotional landscape, they also have a great capacity for warmth.

With the shortest temper of anyone on the series, Harley loves nothing more than smashing things (or people) with her lucky bat. This temperament is one of the most obvious reasons why she's an Aries, but the resonances run deeper. Despite the toxic situation she was in with the Joker, Harley lives her life confidently and with passion, never afraid to go after what she wants. Direct and honest -– as Aries are often said to be -– Harley knows who she is and strives to never compromise.

Though she may seem immature at the onset of the series –- Aries are the baby of the zodiac, after all –- Harley grows significantly over time. One of the most courageous things she has done thus far is to tell Ivy how she really feels about her despite Ivy being engaged to someone else. As Harley illustrates, Aries courage and passion can come in many forms.

Taurus: Batman

As a character who has been around for over eighty years, it's no surprise that Batman has gone through many changes over the years. From Adam West's lighthearted portrayal in the 1960s to Robert Pattinson's emo brooding, different interpretations of the character abound. Because "Harley Quinn" is primarily told from the perspective of the so-called villains, the heroes in the universe are often made to look silly. Batman (Diedrich Bader), Gotham's masked vigilante, often comes across as being quite sad and woefully set in his ways.

"Harley Quinn" portrays Batman as a very stagnant individual, which is why he is best suited to the sign of Taurus. That's not to say Taureans are incapable of change, but they do have a reputation for being the most stubborn signs in the zodiac. Those born under this sign tend to be very committed to tradition and the way things have always been. They dislike big changes and have a strong appreciation for aesthetic beauty.

Though Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy experience a lot of personal growth over the series, Batman remains stubbornly committed to his brooding, solitary way of doing things. Going outside of one's comfort zone can be difficult for many Taureans, and though he would never admit it, this is also something the great Bruce Wayne struggles with, as we see in his relationship with Batwoman.

Gemini: The Joker

Even those with only a glancing familiarity of astrology can probably recall that the sign of Gemini is known as the sign of two faces. Geminis are associated with this moniker because they are symbolized by the twins and are the most versatile and adaptable of all the signs. Defined by the archetype of the communicator, Geminis are charismatic entertainers who love learning new things. They can sometimes be more analytical than sentimental, as illustrated by their placement as cerebral air signs.

For much of "Harley Quinn," the Joker (Alan Tudyk) is the evil, demented clown DC fans have always known him to be. He's a megalomaniac and a terrible partner to Harley. However, when he becomes un-Jokered after Harley throws him in the acid, he turns into a completely different person. He's jovial, friendly, and seems to not have a violent bone in his body. When Harley throws him in the acid once more he becomes the Joker again, but he retains the feelings he developed during his amnesiac period.

The most obvious connection between Joker and the sign of Gemini is the two-faced symbol it is represented by. Still, the Joker displays several other Gemini characteristics. As a clown, The Joker is an entertainer, even if most of us wouldn't choose to be his audience. We also see in his relationship with Harley that he tries to use his charm to wiggle himself out of situations, a skill Geminis excel at.

Cancer: Bane

Batman is a pretty sad character in the "Harley Quinn" universe, but Bane (James Adomian) just might be the saddest sack in Gotham. Many of us probably know Tom Hardy's portrayal of Bane from "The Dark Knight Rises," but this Bane is slightly different. He still has the distinctive voice, but he's less dedicated to world domination and more interested in getting smoothies from his favorite shop and occasionally blowing up people who upset him. He's also very sensitive to the slights of others and is saddened when people make fun of him or leave him out.

Bane aligns most closely with the sign of Cancer. Known as the nurturers of the zodiac, Cancers are sensitive individuals in search of comfort. They have a strong connection to all things related to the home and never forget anything that has happened to them. They are quite sentimental and nostalgic, although these feelings can sometimes lead to vengeance under the right circumstances.

As far as Cancer villains go, Bane is the perfect illustration. Much of his anger comes from the perceived betrayals of others -– such as the smoothie bar worker who disrespected him –- and he does not take even the smallest of slights lightly. He frequently brings up the fact that Harley and Ivy borrowed his pasta maker and never returned it, something he sees as an unforgivable infraction. He may not be the baddest villain in Gotham, but he sure is the most sensitive one.

Leo: Clayface

When it comes down to it, there's no way Clayface (Alan Tudyk) can be anything other than a Leo. As the squad's resident thespian, Clayface lives for drama and theatricality. While the rest of the team is committed to getting the job done as quickly (and violently) as possible, Clayface always finds time to practice his character work in the middle of a heist or secret mission.

Passionate fire signs, Leos are defined by the archetype of the creative. Those born under this sign have big personalities and are not afraid of standing out. Entertaining, dramatic, and theatrical, Leos think of themselves as the kings and queens of their domain, much like their animal counterparts. Though they have a predisposition towards vanity, they can also be generous and warm. Most of all, Leos desire the respect and admiration of their peers.

Almost every attribute of the Leo rings true for Clayface. His passion for acting rules his life, and he wants nothing more than to be recognized for his skill. If it means taking a job as James Gunn's chair to make connections in the industry, Clayface will do it. While Clayface's thespian aspirations may sometimes get in the way of his work with Harley Quinn's squad, it's just not worth trying to stop a Leo from roaring.

Virgo: King Shark

King Shark (Ron Funches) may look like little more than a flesh-eating sea creature, but there's more to him than meets the eye. When we first meet King Shark we learn that he is a skilled hacker who also has really sharp teeth. He also comes from a royal shark family and was expected to take his place on the throne before he decided to leave the sea and forge his own path in the world.

King Shark is looking for a place to belong and finds himself happiest when he feels useful, which is why he fits best under the sign of Virgo. Known as healers and analysts, Virgos are constantly processing information and trying to come up with solutions to problems. Loyal, kind, and hardworking, Virgos tend to be practical individuals with perfectionist tendencies.

With his impressive hacking ability, King Shark actually has one of the most practical skills in Harley Quinn's squad. Like many Virgos, King Shark is also quite humble about both his intelligence and his ability to shark-out and wreak havoc on the enemy. He may not be able to blend into the background as much as other Virgos often do, but he certainly doesn't seek the spotlight as much as the rest of his team does, either.

Libra: Commissioner Gordon

Like his personal hero, Batman, Commissioner Gordon (Christopher Meloni) is a bit of a sad sack. Once a successful police commissioner and Harvey Dent's right-hand man, now Gordon is a depressed, lonely alcoholic middle-aged man without much hope for the future. However, thanks to his daughter Barbara, aka Batgirl, and Two-face, Gordon picks himself off the floor and decides to run for Mayor of Gotham.

As a police officer, Gordon believes in law and order above all else, which is why he is best represented by the sign of Libra. Represented by the scales, Libras are known as the diplomats of the zodiac. They are committed to justice and keeping the peace, and equality is very important to them. They don't like mess or disorder and tend to avoid conflict when it comes their way.

Gordon may be extremely depressed and despondent when we first meet him, but he eventually remembers his passion for police work and becomes dedicated to whipping the city back into shape. Viewers of the show may not usually be on Gordon's side — our main characters are villains, after all –- but it's clear he's driven by a sense of duty, justice, and ethics that in many ways define the sign of the Libra.

Scorpio: Dr. Psycho

Dr. Psycho (Tony Hale) is one of the most powerful members of Harley Quinn's squad, although, as we learn later in the series, he's also the most deeply evil. Psycho's powers may be all in his head, but that doesn't mean they're any less dangerous. He has the ability to control the minds of others and is also extremely adept at telekinesis. He's also deeply sexist, which doesn't have anything to do with his powers but does make him even more of a menace to society.

Since Dr. Psycho's abilities are powers of the mind, the sign he most aligns with is Scorpio. Water signs represented by the archetype of the alchemist, Scorpios are some of the most perceptive and intuitive signs in the zodiac. Scorpios are very strategic and cunning, and their innate understanding of emotion can make them even more dangerous and manipulative. Those born under this sign have a desire for control and the ability to focus very intensely to get what they want.

Scorpios are known as the most psychic of the signs, which is why Dr. Psycho is especially well-suited to this astrological placement. He may not be as cool and mysterious as Scorpios can often be, but his particular brand of villainy stings just like a scorpion.

Sagittarius: Frank the Plant

Frank the Plant (J.B. Smoove) may not seem like the most central character in "Harley Quinn," but he certainly has a lot to say whenever he's on screen. As an enormous talking venus fly trap, Frank uses his huge mouth to provide (often unwanted) commentary but also to eat people who need to be eaten. Ivy often seems annoyed with Frank, but she's also annoyed with Harley most of the time and Harley is the love of her life — so she probably cares about Frank more than she'd ever admit.

Though Frank is confined to a pot until Season 3, he seems to have a desire to get out and see the world. As a conscious plant with a zest for life, the sign that fits Frank best is Sagittarius. Sagittarians are known as the travelers of the zodiac, as they tend to be restless individuals. Those born under this sign are knowledge-seekers committed to finding and telling the truth, no matter the cost.

Frank is certainly a truthteller and rarely seems content to just watch things happen without chiming in with his own commentary. This tracks for Sagittarians, who are often blunt with their words and are not the most diplomatic signs in the zodiac. Frank obviously wants to help Ivy when he can, but he doesn't always go about it the right way, which fits with the Sagittarian trait of having big ideas but not always being able to follow through.

Capricorn: Catwoman

Catwoman (Sanaa Lathan) is a character who exists in an ambiguous space on the spectrum between hero and villain. Above all, she is clearly in it ("it" being burglary) for personal gain and doesn't care much about other people's feelings. She doesn't go out of her way to hurt people, but she's not worried about who she steps on in order to achieve her goals, either.

The Catwoman we meet in "Harley Quinn" fits best within the sign of Capricorn. Known as the leaders of the zodiac, Capricorns are responsible, disciplined, and motivated individuals. They can initially come off as cold when you first meet them and they tend to take a while to warm up to people. Self-reliant and stoic, Capricorns are very goal-oriented and tend to repress any emotion that may hinder their achievements. For Capricorns, material goods, money, and looking sharp are key components of success.

Catwoman is certainly a very serious, seemingly cold-hearted individual with her eye on the prize. This aligns with Capricorns' goal-oriented nature, as does her commitment to doing everything on her own and not relying on other people. Her lifestyle may seem a bit lonely, but with all that money and all those cats (plus a masked hero she may or may not be canoodling with on the side), we don't imagine Catwoman has much to complain about.

Aquarius: Poison Ivy

Poison Ivy (Lake Bell) is a near-perfect example of an Aquarius. As the humanitarians of the zodiac, Aquarians are progressive, independent thinkers with big ideas about changing the world. Though they are committed to making the world a better place and tend to be more interested in the big ideas about humanity than they are in actually getting to know other human beings. As such, they often feel more comfortable living as outcasts where they can revel in their personal freedom and remain aloof and eccentric in peace.

Out of any character on "Harley Quinn," Ivy has the biggest ideas about how to change the world. As a misanthrope, she doesn't care much for other humans but is committed to saving the environment and restoring the planet back to its former — aka pre-human — glory. In true Aquarian form, Ivy loves the world but hates the humans who live in it, which is why she is perceived as a villain. Although, as Ivy would say, she actually identifies as more of an eco-terrorist.

However, like her ball-of-rage girlfriend, Harley, Ivy does have the ability to change and grow. She'll certainly never love humanity as a whole, but what she does learn is that there are a few people in the world she can stand being around and she might even be able to trust with her heart. She'll always be an eccentric Aquarian with trust issues — but that doesn't mean she has to be alone.

Pisces: Kite Man

As the last sign of the zodiac, Pisces is said to encompass all that has come before. Pisces are known as dreamers, and they tend to have a difficult time differentiating between reality and fantasy. They are the most romantic of the signs and are prone to daydreaming, but they are also extremely intuitive and wiser than their occasionally childlike demeanor might suggest. Compassionate, gentle, and friendly, Pisceans are in search of pleasure and happiness.

Like many men on "Harley Quinn," Kite Man (Matt Oberg) initially comes off as a buffoon. His superpower is the fact that he flies around using a kite, and he doesn't seem great at reading the room or knowing the right thing to say at a given time. Still, he does prove himself to be a caring, reliable partner to Ivy, even if they didn't turn out to be a perfect match. Thankfully, fans of the character needn't worry -– a Kite Man spinoff series has been announced.

It's Kite Man's relationship with Ivy that best illustrates his Piscean nature. While he comes off as dense, we learn that he understands more than he lets on, and he's the one who turns down marrying Ivy when he sees she doesn't want the same things as him. Kite Man may seem like he has his head in the clouds -– in more ways than one –- but he has a kind heart and a few kernels of wisdom that reveal the depth within.
