The Chicago Med Character You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign

"Chicago Med" takes a look at the inner workings of the Windy City's most highly skilled medical team: the ER doctors, nurses, and staff at the fictional Gaffney Chicago Medical Center. The series follows this dedicated staff as they face the difficult challenge of treating patients and finding miraculously inventive ways to save lives, all while navigating their interpersonal relationships.

Born from the mind of "Law & Order" creator Dick Wolf, "Chicago Med" is a descendant of the "One Chicago" franchise, existing in the same universe as its sibling shows, "Chicago P.D." and "Chicago Fire." While the show does contain crossovers with its sister series, "Chicago Med" works as a standalone show, which means you don't need to watch the others in order to fall in love with the storylines and characters of "Chicago Med."

From the fiery Dr. Crockett Marcel to the rule-following Dr. Ethan Choi and emotional Dr. Daniel Charles, every character has their own unique and relatable personality. While no help is needed in finding ways to identify with the diverse members of the Gaffney staff, a look into their astrological traits reveals even more fascinating insight into these complicated characters.

Aries: Dr. Crockett Marcel

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and boy, do they pack a punch! Known for their bold, wild, and hot-headed temperament, those that belong to sign can be a lot to handle, which is why it should come as no surprise that they would be associated with Dr. Crockett Marcel. While he may be chief durgical resident at Gaffney Chicago Medical Center, his skills and expertise are not the defining features of his character. At his core, Marcel is a hard-partying southern boy who likes his whisky strong and his opinions stronger.

Individuals born under the sign of Aries are known to be risk-takers, and if there's anyone on the Chicago Med team that's known to throw caution to the wind, it's Marcel. Though he doesn't open up about it much, Marcel is something of a tortured soul. He had a daughter who passed away from leukemia despite his best efforts to save her and it's likely this past trauma that produced his cavalier attitude to life. While he may play the part of the professional surgeon, his hard-core antics, the bottle of alcohol he keeps in his locker, and his strong aversion to following rules expose him as the poster boy for Aries.

Taurus : Maggie Lockwood

Next on the calendar after Aries is Taurus, an earth sign represented by the bull. The signature trait of Taurus and their celestial spirit animal — the bull — is their hard-headed stubbornness. No one on the Chicago Med team that does stubborn quite like Maggie Lockwood. A charge nurse in the emergency department at Gaffney Chicago Medical Center, Maggie takes her work seriously and isn't afraid to put her foot down when necessary.

Taurus is a fixed sign, an astrological quality that reflects excellence in maintaining systems and prioritizing consistency and stability in all areas of their lives. While running the department with her stubborn, no-nonsense attitude may come as a nuisance to her co-workers at times, it's actually a very admirable quality to have. It shows just how dedicated Maggie is to her job and how much she cares about the work. She may be difficult at times and somewhat intense, but it also means she's loyal and reliable. In her profession, that's always a good thing.

Gemini: Dr. Sarah Reese

The star sign represented by their celestial twins, and therefore often said to be two-faced, erratic, and impulsive, Geminis get a bad rap. The same thing can be said of Dr. Sarah Reese. Yes, she can be chaotic and is known to break down into tears at times. However, her emotion only stems from how much she cares. At the end of the day, wouldn't you rather have a doctor that cares too much rather than not at all?

In similar Gemini fashion, she can also be somewhat indecisive, changing her mind on a dime. After all, she did go into the medical field with the intention of pursuing a career in pathology only to abandon that the second she dipped her toes into the water. What shouldn't be forgotten, however, is that Sarah only made this switch up because she realized that she didn't want to spend the rest of her life cooped up in a lab without any human contact. She found that she much more so enjoys interacting with patients and learning about the psychological side of medicine. 

Thriving in interpersonal settings and being driven by curiosity are classic Gemini behaviors. Sarah was only doing what was right for her by opting for the path that would make the most of her talents and put her in a position where she could best help others. Why should she be blamed for that?

Cancer: Dr. Natalie Manning

Some signs of the zodiac are more easily summed up than others. Aries are hot-heads, Taureans are stubborn, Geminis are chaotic, but Cancers are more difficult to pin down. Some of their more notable qualities are that they are devoted and hyper-emotional, especially in regard to those close to them, but also somewhat secretive. Based on those attributes, the "Chicago Med" character most fitting for this star sign is Dr. Natalie Manning.

Manning is an attending in emergency medicine specializing in pediatrics. She's portrayed as extremely caring — perhaps even too caring as she often becomes overly emotionally attached to her young patients. In addition to the emotional aspect, she also takes up the secretive qualities of Cancer. For example, there's the time she altered data so her mother would be accepted into the medical trial Will was running and then proceeded to steal medication to treat her mother in secret. However, knowing this action could destroy Will's career, she eventually confessed what she'd done, even though it meant she would have to leave her job at Gaffney.

Here, we see the over-devoted and protective nature of Cancers take hold and provoke ill-advised but good-intentioned actions. At the end of the day, though, it's all about taking care of others — which is exactly what Natalie did, keeping both her mother's health and Will's career in mind. Classic Cancer!

Leo: Dr. Dylan Scott

Leos are, without a doubt, one of the most easily recognizable and identifiable signs on the zodiac calendar. If you've ever met a Leo, or if you're close with any, you know this all too well. They can be spotted from a mile away, always hard to miss with their confident, outgoing, larger-than-life personalities. It's impossible not to be drawn into the orbit of their magnetic presence and good-heartedness. When it comes to confident leaders guided by a strong moral compass, Dr. Dylan Scott is the name that comes to mind.

An emergency medicine physician specializing in pediatrics — as well as an ex-police officer — Dylan is a pure-hearted soul who works day in and out to protect the good in this world. He commands authority both as an officer of health and a previous officer of the law, perfectly exemplifying the confidence and bold-natured independence that Leos everywhere are destined to follow. "Thank you" and "Yes, sir!" are the only spoken necessities or appropriate exchanges for a man of Dylan's caliber.

Virgo: Dr. Will Halstead

While signs like Aries and Gemini are the ones rumored to be the most intense, Virgos are a highly under-estimated contender in this category. Represented by the elegant and serene swan, Virgos appear to have everything together at all times — and that's because they do. However, there's a lot of work that goes into that and a lot of personal labor involved in seeming so perfect all the time. It takes discipline, organization, strategy, and a whole lot more, but some people are just born with those tools at their discretion. People such as Dr. William Halstead.

An attending physician in emergency medicine at Gaffney, Will is an incredibly competent and compassionate man who is always striving to get the job done. However, it's not always enough that the job gets done. For Will, it has to be done his way — the right way. As a Virgo, Will can be somewhat of a control freak, and he can often become obsessed or fixated over his idea of what the smart or right thing to do is. He may insist on a particular course of action, even if it conflicts with available advice and evidence. It's not his fault, though — he's a Virgo, and Virgos know best!

Libra: Dr. Connor Rhodes

Libras are a particularly tricky star sign. They can fool you, and if you're not looking close enough, you may not be able to see them for who they really are. On the outside, Libras have it all. They're cool, charming, and popular. As air signs ruled by Venus, the planet that governs love and beauty, Libras are into aesthetics. They appreciate high art, often surrounding themselves with stunning objects and upscale environments that reflect their exquisite tastes.

Based on this information alone, it's clear that Libras are most similar to the character of Dr. Connor Rhodes. Connor was born into a rich family and was raised with all the luxuries that accompany such a lifestyle. As someone accustomed to enjoying the finer things in life, the Libra in him is apparent. However, his connections to this star sign go deeper than this superficial layer. This actually extends to another quality inherent in Libras — Connor cares a lot about what other people think of them, and he places heavy emphasis on his appearance, which may not always be what it seems.

This is the case with Connor because while he's used to a cushy lifestyle, he doesn't practice it in adulthood, and he expresses insecurity over people knowing about his upper-class background. Fortunately for him, while his friends and colleagues may tease him about it, they don't judge him for it, opting to see him for the good friend that he is — rather than the rich snob he could be.

Scorpio: Sharon Goodwin

If there's anything to be said about Scorpios, it's that you need to be careful with them. While they may seem calm on the outside, you need to watch your back because there could be darkness brewing underneath. However, this darkness isn't evil, it's just intense, and it derives from their extremely protective nature. Take Sharon Goodwin, for example.

Sharon Goodwin, the executive director of Patient and Medical Services at Gaffney, is incredibly loyal and fiercely protective of the people who work under her but often goes about expressing this in a very particular way. She follows her head, not her heart, and rather than go based on gut instinct and feeling like Dr. Crockett Marcel, she airs on the side of strict rules and protocols. This is where her dicey Scorpio side comes in because this often results in heated exchanges with colleagues who want to do the right thing, even if it's not the legal thing. As long as you're not threatening the Scorpio in Sharon, you should be fine — but it's always better safe than sorry.

Sagittarius: Dr. Dean Archer

Sagittarius as a sign is known to be one of the brighter and bouncier signs of the zodiac, so you might not at first see the connection between this sign and Dr. Dean Archer, but it's definitely there. While Archer isn't the most playful doctor at Gaffney, he's got one dominating trait that makes him an obvious Sagittarius — honesty.

Sagittarians are the most honest signs in the zodiac calendar. They have absolutely no filter. Dr. Dean Archer is exactly the same way. He has no problem voicing his brutal, raw opinion at all times, especially when it comes to diagnoses. While it's somewhat ironic, given that he displays clear signs of PTSD, Archer has a severe disdain and doubt for the validity of mental illness. He has an annoying habit of being condescending and belittling patients who display psychiatric rather than physical symptoms. However, he's just calling it exactly as he sees it, which may not always be correct — but it's the truth according to him. He's Sagittarius through and through.

Capricorn: Dr. Stevie Hammer

The best way to describe Capricorns is that they are survivors. This Earth sign crew is all about practicality, self-reliance, and ambition. They've got the thick skin to go through the toughest things in life and come out the other side even stronger. When it comes to independent, hard workers with the guts to get ahead in life, there's no one that holds a flame to Dr. Stephanie "Stevie" Hammer.

While she thrives in her role as a physician in emergency medicine at Gaffney, Stevie had to fight quite an uphill battle to get there, and her backstory is far from cheery. When she was a child, Stevie's mother was unable to provide a stable home life, which meant they often found themselves without a place to stay and were essentially homeless much of the time. Despite her difficult past, Stevie managed to put herself through medical school and become a doctor, along the way earning the nickname "The Hammer."

Most impressive of all is that she did so with absolutely no support from anyone. To be that strong and determined, refusing to give up even though the odds were always stacked against her, she has to be a Capricorn. There's no other explanation!

Aquarius: Dr. Ethan Choi

Aquarians have three main traits: they're analytical, assertive, and humanitarian. Their symbol is the water bearer, representing the values of truth and pure intentions. Ruled by Uranus, the planet of invention and innovation, Aquarians not only want to save the world, but they've got the drive and smarts to actually do it. When it comes to these intellectually adamant do-gooders, Dr. Ethan Choi is a perfect match.

While his resume more recently reflects his role as an attending physician in emergency medicine with a specialization in infectious diseases at Gaffney, Ethan is also ex-military. From fighting for his country to fighting for his patients, Ethan is an all-around stand-up guy who isn't afraid to assert himself to accomplish his goals. Aquarians don't like funny business, and as someone with military experience, neither does Ethan. While he keeps his emotions bottled up at times, another common trait of Aquarians, he's not afraid to get a little heated when it comes to following rules and protocol. You either get in line, or you get out of Ethan's way. That's all there is to it.

Pisces: Dr. Daniel Charles

Pisceans are the most emotional and empathetic of all the zodiac signs. They can be extremely sensitive, so you have to watch what you say around them because it may very well end in a fit of tears. However, it's worth it to keep them around because of how understanding and supportive they can be. It's like having your own personal therapist. In that regard, Dr. Daniel Charles is just about as Pisces as you can get.

As the head of psychiatry at Gaffney Chicago Medical Center, Daniel isn't like a personal therapist — he basically is one. Despite treating patients with mental illness all day, Daniel seems unable to treat his own, as reflected in his own long and exhausting battle with depression. Despite being on anti-depressants and self-medicating, he never seems to be able to get out from under his own gloom. He's more than capable to save anyone and everyone around him but himself. It's okay though, he's Pisces — it's just who he is!
