The Boy Meets World Character You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign

First airing in the 1990s, "Boy Meets World" has worked its way into the hearts of many fans of all ages. While the show finished its run back in 2000, it has remained a favorite amongst viewers that grew up alongside the classic coming-of-age story. The show's enduring popularity and wide appeal led to a follow-up series in 2014 called "Girl Meets World," which focused on the daughter of "Boy Meets World" protagonist Cory Matthews (Ben Savage).

One of the reasons that "Boy Meets World" remains a favorite well after the show ended is its fantastic cast of relatable characters. Each of the show's major players are unique and multidimensional in a way that makes them feel realistic, allowing audiences to really relate to them and the challenges they face growing up. With the recent popularity of "Pod Meets World," a "Boy Meets World" podcast hosted by several stars of the original show, many fans might be wondering which character they are most like.

Since many of the characters have traits that align closely with the signs of the zodiac, one may need to look no further than their own astrological sign to determine which "Boy Meets World" best represents them. Are you curious which character you most resemble from the show? Here is the "Boy Meets World" character you are based on your zodiac sign.

Aries: Jonathan Turner

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, represented by the ram. As the first fire sign in the zodiac, Aries perfectly personifies many of the traits often associated with fiery characters. Those born under the sign are often known for their determination, courageousness, and independence. They are also known to have maverick personalities, often rejecting authority in pursuit of what they're passionate about.

Jonathan Turner is a perfect representation of Aries in "Boy Meets World." Before Jonathan Turner disappeared from the show following the character's serious motorcycle accident, he spent time as one of Cory and Shawn's favorite teachers at John Adams High. Mr. Turner was passionate about teaching his students more than can just be learned in a book, often using methods that Principal Feeny disapproved of. For instance, on the first day of class, he related his material to the characters from the "X-Men," Shawn and Cory's favorite show.

Turner's Aries traits are perhaps best exemplified by his actions during the episode "Wake Up, Little Cory." Against Feeny's wishes, Turner uses Shakespeare's "Much Ado About Nothing" to teach his students about sex and assigns them a project that he believes will help them to be more responsible and better understand it.

Taurus: Alan Matthews

Taurus is the second sign of the zodiac and the first earth sign. Represented by the bull, Taureans are often seen as bull-headed or stubborn, and it can be one of their most defining traits. However, Taureans are also known to be reliable, stable, practical, and devoted.

In "Boy Meets World," Cory's father Alan Matthews shows many of the classic Taurean traits. Unlike a lot of Cory's friends, Alan is fairly immune to Cory's typical schemes and manipulations. When Cory has gone too far or has unrealistic expectations, Alan is often the first one to sit down with him and give practical advice. He is also fiercely devoted to his wife Amy, making them one of the best "Boy Meets World" couples.

However, Alan can also be extremely stubborn, and is often resistant to change. In the episode "Raging Cory," Cory calls Alan out for only wanting to play basketball with his brother, Eric. Alan says that there are things he only does with Eric and things he only does with Cory, and that's just the way things are. It takes Cory pushing his father down for Alan to re-evaluate his stance.

Gemini: Jack Hunter

Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac, as well as the first air sign. Those born under Gemini are often known for being masters of life's social game. They are seen as charismatic and versatile and tend to be great communicators. They also make for great entrepreneurs, having the ability to talk their way into (or out of) just about anything.

Jack Hunter is a fantastic representation of a Gemini in "Boy Meets World." The half-brother of Shawn Hunter, Jack doesn't meet his brother until later in life. Having grown up with a rich stepfather who was also an accomplished businessman, Jack knows the way of the world and knows his way around people. He is often the first one to jump at a new business idea or scheme.

Jack is also very versatile, quickly fitting in with Cory's friend group and becoming an integral part of the gang, despite joining late. Geminis are also known to excel in flirting, which Jack demonstrates by quickly winning the affections of his roommate, Rachel Maguire, despite Eric also vying for her attention.

Cancer: Cory Matthews

Represented by the crab, Cancer is the fourth sign of the zodiac, as well as its first water sign. Cancers are known for being tenacious, loyal, persuasive, and empathetic. However, they can also be insecure, suspicious, and, at times, manipulative. This means that Cancers are sometimes the best possible friends to have. At other times, Cancers can be challenging companions.

These traits almost perfectly align with the series' divisive protagonist, Cory Matthews. Like many Cancers, Cory prioritizes his friends above anything else in his life. He tries to understand his friends' struggles, and when he believes he can help make them happier, he leaps at the opportunity, even if it means giving his friends some tough love.

While often well-intentioned, Cory's meddlesome nature when it comes to his friends can often just make things worse. Sadly, he often doesn't see the harm his actions are causing until much later. In the episode "Things Change," Cory tries to convince his friend Shawn to give up a job that he really likes in order to attend college with him, desperate to keep his best friend close to him. This ends up pushing Shawn away from a career and job that he loved, hurting him more than it helped.

Leo: Eric Matthews

The second fire sign of the zodiac, Leo is represented by the lion. Leos are known for being the life of the party in just about any group or social setting. They tend to have a warmth and genuineness to them, and they make for excellent friends as a result. That being said, their big personalities can often be overwhelming, and their need to be the center of attention can at times suck the air out of the room.

Eric Matthews exudes the energy of a Leo. He is a big personality, and when he enters a room, it is hard not to notice. It takes a lot to break down Eric's energetic and jovial nature, and when it does happen, it's often due to Eric feeling inadequate about the way he views himself. However, his love for his friends and family is his cornerstone, and his warm nature makes it easy for those around him to lean on him as a friend in times of need.

Leos are also known to be ruled by their hearts and instincts over rationality or logic, something that Eric regularly displays in "Boy Meets World." In the episode, "You Light Up My Union," Eric lends the $1,700 that the student union has made that day to a man saying he needs money to buy his monkey's girlfriend and have her sent to America, following his heart over his head.

Virgo: George Feeny

Virgo is the sixth sign of the zodiac, and the second earth sign. Like other earth signs, Virgos are known for their practical way of thinking. They tend to be hard-working and detail-oriented, and they are usually very well organized. However, they are known to take this to the extreme on occasion. As a result, they have a reputation for being "all work and no play" and for being overly critical of others.

George Feeny is the best example of a Virgo in "Boy Meets World." Having been Cory Matthews' teacher (and later principal and professor) as well as his neighbor for most of his life, Feeny is an important role model to Cory, and Cory looks up to him. The protagonist relies on him to give valuable life lessons as well as practical and analytical advice.

While Feeny cares very much for his students, he can often be overly critical of them, being quick to judge when something goes wrong. He often assumes that Shawn, who has a reputation for being a troublemaker, is to blame. He likes to play things by the book and has little time for those who break that mold, such as the hip and relatable Mr. Turner.

Libra: Amy Matthews

The seventh sign of the zodiac, Libra is represented by the scales. Fittingly, Libras are famously known to be very fair and prioritize what they see as just. They are also commonly known to be considerate, forgiving, and good negotiators. However, they can also be seen as being overly agreeable and indecisive, and have become known as people pleasers of the zodiac.

This perfectly describes Cory's mom, Amy Matthews. Unlike her husband Alan, who often butts heads with Cory, Amy is more understanding and forgiving of Cory's wrongdoings. While it is great for Cory to have such a great advocate, this often means that Amy puts her own needs aside in order to make her family or friends happy. In the episode "How To Succeed In Business," Amy joins Eric's creative writing class. However, when she accidentally embarrasses Eric, she immediately drops the class to make him happy, and it takes him convincing her to come back for her to finally put herself first.

Amy also has Libra's trademark unpredictability. In the episode "I Ain't Gonna Spray Lettuce No More," Amy surprises her entire family by buying a nature store for Alan to run. While Alan and the rest of the Matthews family are initially thrown off by this big move, it ends up being just what Alan needed.

Scorpio: Topanga Lawrence

Scorpio is the eighth sign of the zodiac, and its second water sign. Scorpio is one of the most complex signs of the zodiac, and at times Scorpios can be hard to get to know. They are famously known for being brave, intelligent, and extremely sincere. Oftentimes, their sincerity can lead to them being somewhat blunt, and Scorpios can be known to be jealous and unforgiving.

Cory's other half Topanga Lawrence represents Scorpio very well. She is smart and intelligent, but she can also be very intense and passionate about her studies and her work. Like many Scorpios, Topanga has a steadfast nature, and once she sets her mind to something, she pursues it relentlessly until her goal is met. She is also the first to speak her mind, often in a blunt way that can take her friends by surprise.

At times, Topanga can also be jealous and unforgiving. When Cory kisses Lauren in "Heartbreak Cory," Topanga is (quite understandably) angry at him. It takes her a while before she is willing to forgive him and get back together with him, but even while they are broken up, Topanga is still very jealous of the attention Cory receives from other women, like in "If You Can't Be With the One You Love..." when Kimberly Sussman hits on Cory at her party.

Sagittarius: Rachel McGuire

Often considered the sign of the traveler, Sagittarius is the ninth sign of the zodiac. Represented by the centaur archer, Sagittarians are known to be free-spirited and adventurous, as well as generous and open with others. They are frequently animal lovers and gravitate towards having pets. However, they can sometimes be arrogant and reckless, with a tendency to be too blunt.

Rachel McGuire is the best representation of a Sagittarius in "Boy Meets World." Arriving somewhat late in the series, Rachel proves herself to be an adventurous and free-spirited friend. She goes to live with Jack and Eric on a whim, and in the episode "Brave New World," Rachel joins the Peace Corps, hoping to move around and have a more adventurous life. Rachel is also shown to be very generous, forgiving her friends even when they treat her terribly, such as when Eric secretly records her life in "And in Case I Don't See Ya."

Like many Sagittarians, Rachel is also a big animal lover. In the episode "I'm Gonna Be Like You, Dad," Rachel tells Eric and Jack that she has always really loved taking care of animals, and has considered becoming a veterinarian. She ultimately decides against taking this career path because she can't handle the idea of having to put people's pets to sleep.

Capricorn: Harley Keiner

Capricorn is the zodiac's third and final earth sign and the tenth sign overall. Represented by the goat, Capricorns are known to be hard-working, persistent, and practical. They are also natural providers, protecting and providing for those closest to them. However, they can at times come off as emotionless and sarcastic, with a cynical outlook on life.

Harley Keiner fits many of the traits of a typical Capricorn in "Boy Meets World." While audiences are first introduced to Harley as Cory's bully at school, the show later expands upon this complex and multi-dimensional character. In "Sister Theresa," Cory begins dating Harley's younger sister, Theresa. While on a date, she tells Cory that Harley is very protective of her, and is the only one in her family who looks out for her and provides for her after her father abandons her and her mother is absent.

In the "Boy Meets World" follow-up series "Girl Meets World," Harley is the janitor at the school Cory teaches at. When Cory wants his students to learn the value of hard work, he has them apprentice with Harley, who tells them that while the job is difficult, he takes pride in the work he does and the cleanliness of the school, helping to humble Cory's students.

Aquarius: Angela Moore

Aquarius is the eleventh sign of the zodiac and one of its most unique. People born under Aquarius are known to be independent, often standing out from their peers in both actions and ideals. Their devotion to social justice makes them terrific humanitarians. However, Aquarians are also known to run away from emotional expression and can be temperamental and aloof.

In "Boy Meets World," the best representation of Aquarius is Angela Moore. Like many Aquarians, Angela is a true friend to just about everyone in Cory's group. She forms a close bond with Topanga and eventually becomes her maid of honor at her wedding. Angela is also shown to be a very independent thinker, never willing to just go with the flow. In the episode "First Girlfriends Club," Angela ignores the advice of three of Shawn's ex-girlfriends, who try to warn her not to date him, preferring to form her own opinion.

Like many Aquarians, Angela can have a hard time communicating her feelings, especially when she feels that others may not share them. In the episode "Poetic License: An Ode to Holden Caulfield," Angela reveals to Cory that she still has feelings for Shawn, despite them having broken up. Even though Cory urges her to open up to Shawn, she ends up pretending she shared Shawn's feelings of not wanting to get back together because she felt it was too difficult to open up.

Pisces: Shawn Hunter

Pisces is the final sign of the zodiac, as well as the final water sign. Represented by the fish, Pisceans are known for being intuitive, supportive, and flexible, making them excellent friends and companions. However, they can also be known to be overly emotional and impressionable.

Shawn Hunter is the perfect Pisces in "Boy Meets World." Shawn is Cory's best friend, and he often provides the rock for Cory to lean on when he is in trouble. Like many Pisceans, Shawn tends to be very flexible and often follows Cory into whatever schemes he is getting himself into. Shawn can also be very intuitive, sometimes displaying wisdom far beyond his years.

However, like many Pisceans, Shawn is very impressionable, which often gets him into trouble. This happens often with his friend Cory, who can push him to do things he knows are wrong. In the episode "If You Can't Be With the One You Love," Cory convinces Shawn to drink even though he knows that he shouldn't, which leads to Shawn developing a dependence on alcohol. Shawn also displays the typical Pisces absent-mindedness, often tuning out during his classes or amid anything that doesn't interest him.
