The American Pickers Star You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign

"American Pickers" is a rusty gold mine of antique-dealing television. Fans have watched Mike Wolfe, Frank Fritz, and Danielle Colby pick their way through American history for over 20 seasons. The show's rotating cast of pickers, experts, craftspeople, sellers, and collectors is as varied as the stars in the sky, or the creepy dolls in an old barn.

While the show has as much drama behind the cameras as it has vintage motorcycles in front of them, it's continued to deliver on its core premise more than a decade after its inception. Every episode features the pickers preserving a piece of the past, and sometimes turning a nice profit along the way. 

How do these antique archaeologists stack up in the world of astrology? Which one are you most like in the grand cosmic scheme of things? Get ready to hit the road and power into the past to discover which "American Pickers" star you are based on your zodiac sign. 

Aries: William Shatner

You boldly go where no one has gone before, and you do it all your way. Whether traveling through distant galaxies or on discount vacations with Priceline, you move through life to the beat of your own drum. That's because you're cosmically aligned with "American Pickers" Season 2, Episode 22 star William Shatner. Like Shatner, you're comfortable in your own skin. This deep-seated confidence makes you capable of anything you put your mind to, be it space exploration or spoken-word jazz poetry. 

As an Aries (March 21 to April 19), you've got what it takes to lead humanity to the final frontier and beyond. Your charismatic nature and clear communication style make you a stellar negotiator. They say you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink –- but you could. You're just that good at getting people (and horses) to follow your lead. Because of your above-average confidence and ambition, you often find yourself Captain Kirk-ing your way through life. 

As the first fire sign of the zodiac, you're a natural-born leader, but not a naturally patient one. Even though you're direct when communicating what you want, you can struggle when things don't work out your way, and your temper might occasionally go supernova. However, you're pleased when folks do your bidding -– like when Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz get the perfect pricey millstone on "American Pickers" for Shatner's horse farm. 

Taurus: Dolly Parton

Y'all have an eye for style that's sharp as a rhinestone and twice as sparkly. Some people have a taste for the finer things in life, but you have a big old appetite! You're happy with life's simple pleasures but also want the best and brightest for those you care for –- and even better and brighter for yourself. That's because you share a place in the stars with America's Sweetheart and "American Pickers" Season 11, Episode 11 guest, Dolly Parton

While Parton is a Capricorn in real life, her role on "American Pickers" embodies a different earth sign – Taurus (April 20 to May 20), the sign of the bull. Taureans are elegant, caring, and take great pleasure in taking control. If you bear the sign, you have a no-nonsense way about you and a dependable work ethic, but just because you're down to Earth doesn't mean you're dull as dirt. You love surrounding yourself with loved ones and creature comforts. Like Parton, you're prone to spiffing up the less sparkly things in life with a bit of spit-shine and fresh paint –- just like the Tydol gas pumps Dani and the gang pick for Dollywood's Fire Chaser Express ride. 

You and Parton share a vision for a sparklier world of straight talk and stubborn determination. Nothing stands between you and your dreams coming true. And just like Parton and your Taurus kin, you're always workin' nine to five on your dreams. 

Gemini: Frank Fritz

They say one person's trash is another person's treasure, and that's doubly true for you. You're like a kid with a new toy whenever you find an old one, which might be every day of your life. You always keep things playful because you align with your own inner child, and with original American Picker Frank Fritz. 

Some people look at a barn full of trash and see nothing but nightmares, but you find fun wherever you look. Whether you spy a wind-up Goofy toy or a Harley-Davidson Knucklehead motorcycle, you're always on the hunt for a historically good time. Your playful spirit is a hallmark all Geminis (May 21 to June 20) share, and it keeps your life and the lives of those around you interesting, for better and worse. Your social and dynamic personality, coupled with your own mile-a-minute, flighty nature makes you a magnet for both fun and trouble.

Your issues with impulse control and endless curiosity can sometimes lure you to the dark side, which would make even a picked prototype Yoda shake his head with dismay. Though you may struggle with your own often-restless and sometimes-reckless nature, remember that like all Geminis, your duality is what makes you versatile, valuable, and a powerhouse picker. 

Cancer: Lauren Wray Grisham

There are plenty of folks who drive a hard bargain, but driving a soft bargain suits you just fine. You use your light touch to get hard jobs done and know that a little attention can lead to a lot of success. Forget vintage cars and sideshow banners; picking is ultimately a people business, and your intuitive, sensitive nature keeps you picking the right people to do business with. In this way, your star sign aligns with the sweet soul of "American Pickers," Lauren Wray Grisham.

You have a tenacious spirit that drives you to collect any and all treasures in your path. Whether unearthing forgotten relics or polishing no-longer-hidden gems, you take great pride in how well you care for precious things. Sometimes, your caregiving nature and attachment can make you lash out in fiercely protective ways, which is to be expected of Cancers (June 21 to July 22). You're also known to withdraw into your shell when you feel you're being misunderstood, or when you just need a moment alone with your thoughts or your motorcycle jackets.

You and Lauren Wray Grisham embody Cancer's ability to nurture and protect the heart, soul, and style of others — which is likely what makes her such a successful picker and stylist. Still, those ruled by the crab of the stars often find themselves snapping their claws if someone gets a little too close to their soft centers, or their collections of vintage band T-shirts. 

Leo: Robbie Wolfe

When you find yourself in someone else's shadow, you light things up like a neon sign. Like Mike Wolfe's brother Robbie, you're also devoted to "rusty gold." Your Leo (July 23 to August 22) nature lends you both endless curiosity for the relics of this world and endless energy to hunt for them. 

You treasure the prizes you discover in the gutters of life's highway, and you can't wait to show them off to anyone in your orbit. Others may shy away from such naked enthusiasm, fearing they would be labeled as "cringey." You take any judgment in stride, however, and roar about what brings you joy with the unbridled, self-accepting nature all Leos share. Even when you start a situation as a co-star, you aren't afraid to take the lead.

Being a Leo means you're an undeniable force of ferocious nature. Like Robbie, you're as proud of the picks you bring to the table as you are of being the leader of your pack –- even if you're relatively new to it. You never hide your light under a bushel basket, or even under a rare 1935 Auburn Phaeton 653. 

Virgo: Danielle Colby

We all know how the old saying goes: Behind every successful long-running reality TV show about trash-picking for profit, there's a strong woman. Danielle Colby is that strong woman, as well as your star sign icon. For you, that star sign is Virgo (August 23 to September 22). And like Danielle, Virgos get things done. 

Tracking down leads for the crew, sourcing and selling elephant heads, and revealing the relationship struggles behind the scenes of "American Pickers" –- all of this is in a day's work for Danielle and Virgos like you. Danielle is the Charlie to the "American Pickers" angels, just like how you are the mastermind of all your friends and family's day-to-day dealings and big-picture dreams. 

Without Danielle, there would be no 20-plus-season-and-counting road trip antique garage sale show to speak of. And without Virgos, there wouldn't be much of anything, period. You're both precision powerhouses of planning, and neither of you knows how to waste a moment of precious picking time. Be wary of your punishing perfectionism, though –- or at least take a break for a freestyle once in a while.  Excellence is the way of the Virgo. Your commitment to achieving it (and telling other people what to do so you can) is what keeps your world turning. Danielle Colby may be a Sagittarius in real life, but she turns trash into treasure like a true Virgo. 

Libra: The Aerosmith Van

The road to rock-and-roll superstardom is long and winding, and you just want to make the ride as smooth as possible. You know life is all about the journey, not the destination, because you share a cosmic alignment with The Aerosmith Van on "American Pickers."

Just like the Aerosmith van, you keep things moving. And just like all Libras (September 23 to October 22), you and the Aerosmith van don't want to miss a thing. Social and sweet, making decisions makes you crazy. You always want the best possible outcome for everyone, but since you're so go-with-the-flow, you often overthink your own choices. You can see how any decision you make could have a big impact on everyone around you, and all of the ways things could go wrong can get really heavy, man.

You enjoy being a team player and find yourself overcome with sweet emotion every time you help someone you care about patch up the hole in their soul. Your supportive and harmonious nature might make you an angel to others, but make sure you've got what it takes to make yourself as happy as you make others. The true power of a Libra means you don't get jaded –- you dream on.

Scorpio: Mike Wolfe

You don't bleed blood, friend. You bleed "rusty gold." You worship the ancient gods of the road. Your gaze falls upon rust, but you see chrome. That's because your cosmic nature is represented by time-traveler and original American Picker, Mike Wolfe.

Outbuildings call to you from the side of the road, promising you worlds of wheeled wonder. Freestyles of glory taunt you with promises of riches and rust. Memory machines call out to you, begging to be rescued from the snarling maw of time so they can roar once more. Like Mike, when your passion commands you, you must obey. 

Can you be paranoid and jealous? Can you be vengeful and proud? Can you be fixated and insatiable? Of course, of course, of course. But you can also be magnetic, charismatic, and fiercely driven. Mike Wolfe is a man who cracks corny jokes while he digs through mounds of trash and picks through meticulously kept knickknacks. You can be just as dedicated in your own pursuits, because you are a Scorpio (October 23 to November 21). 

Sagittarius: Valuable sideshow banners

Who doesn't want to run away with the circus? Most of us have probably desired a life of magic, mystery, and mayhem at least once in our lives. We've longed for the romance of a world just beyond our reach. We've ached for adventure. We've urged our dreams to come true. You, of course, embody this impossible blend of wonder and reality, as your star sign aligns with some of the most expensive stuff bought and sold on American Pickers: Sideshow banners. 

You are a Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21) — colorful, bright, warm, and adventurous, just like these impressive advertisements from yesteryear. You're full of optimistic promise –- when you're not being a delightful mess, that is. Like any circus, you're full of sugary confections and a clown car stuffed with emotions. Like any Sagittarius, you're an unpredictable world of wonder. And like any profitable "American Pickers" pick, you're worth your weight in cash register sound effects. 

Capricorn: Jack White

You're spookily steadfast in your peculiar pursuits. You have a clear creative vision and a very specific style. You're into what you're into for the long haul, and you aren't afraid to drive a hard bargain when your vision is on the line. In other words, you have a lot in common with rock god and "American Pickers" Season 5, Episode 7 star Jack White

Just like Jack White, you're audaciously goal-oriented. Since you're a Capricorn (December 22 to January 19), that makes a lot of sense. If you want a taxidermied elephant head hand-picked for you by the pickers, by golly, you'll get it –- and then refuse to pay full price. You're as comfortable wheeling and dealing as you are mastering any other pursuit you put your mind to, like building iconic guitar tones and making mayhem with pentatonic scales. 

You're cool and collected, but it bears repeating: You set goals over and over and over. Remember to ask for help sometimes so you don't collapse on dead leaves and the dirty ground.

Aquarius: Freestyling

The laws of man cannot hold you. The rules of time do not bind you. You thrive in the magic middle ground between dreams and reality. You are the cosmic embodiment of "freestyling."

A spur-of-the-moment, unexpected exploration of an outbuilding or dilapidated barn is known in the "American Pickers" business as a "freestyle," which embodies the true spirit of Aquarius (January 20 to February 18.)  Like the lone outbuildings and crumbling sheds explored by the pickers, your soul contains treasure troves -– the personality equivalent of a surprise cache of rare motorcycles. However, you also contain dark pits of straight-up trash. Freestyles are a total gamble for all involved, just like how an impromptu journey with you can yield either frustrating or fabulous results.

When a new friend or loved one spends time with you, they don't know what they're going to get. Half the time, you don't know, either. Your unpredictability is borne of a great intellectual interest that all Aquarians share. You are endlessly alluring, full of promise, and absolutely high-risk; no picker on Earth can resist you. 

Pisces: Prince Mongo

You spend your life searching for a higher truth, and you just might see it better while wearing steampunk goggles. Who are we to judge? Your cosmic being is perfectly embodied by "American Pickers" icon Prince Mongo

Those in search of enlightenment often stray from the path of conformity, and you are no different. Perhaps, like Prince Mongo, you choose to occupy a higher plane of existence by running for local office. Or maybe, again like him, you share what peace you find in the form of blessings and small rubber chickens. However you choose to share your journey, one thing is for sure — as a Pisces (February 19 to March 20), you're always on one.

Whether seeking enlightenment, a return path to your home planet of Zambodia, or a good nude castle dance party, you always try to live your truth. To keep your feet on the ground while your head is in the clouds, make sure to check in with yourself and your neighbors. The Pisces life is full of journeys, but it's also full of friendship. The next time you reach for a communicator chicken, remember: You don't need to walk your unique path all alone.
