The Fate: The Winx Saga Character You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign

"Fate: The Winx Saga" may be dark and edgy, but that doesn't stop it from featuring a colorful cast of characters. Many of the Netflix series' major players are pulled directly from the original "Winx Club" cartoon, including lead protagonist and fire fairy extraordinaire Bloom (Abigail Cowen) and other fairies like Aisha (Precious Mustapha), Stella (Hannah van der Westhuysen), Musa (Elisha Applebaum), and Flora (Paulina Chávez).

Of course, these characters go through some pretty significant changes in the transition from children's animation to young-adult live-action drama. Their magic is still present, but it takes different forms, and even the fairies' signature wings are locked behind a power paywall. Still, the Winx continue to make names for themselves in "Fate," bringing a bevy of different personalities to the table to form a diverse and expansive cast.

One of the best things about "The Winx Saga" is that every character is challenged and gets opportunities to succeed. As you watch, you'll see each fairy, specialist, and headmistress have low moments of regrettable behavior and shining chances to prove just how capable they are. The characters are all nuanced in this way, but of course, they also each have their own natural tendencies that set them apart no matter what they're going through. As such, viewers will likely gravitate towards different characters who correspond to their own personalities. Here's which "Fate: The Winx Saga" character you are according to your zodiac sign.

Spoilers ahead for both seasons of "Fate: The Winx Saga." 

Aries: Bloom

Is it really any surprise that the fire fairy main character of "Fate: The Winx Saga" is also the show's patron saint of the main-character fire sign? Aries (March 21 to April 19) is the first sign of the zodiac, and it takes that placement to heart, leading the way in all things whether it's equipped to or not. Those who bear the fire sign tend to be loud, heroic, boisterous, confident, and passionate. So again, it shouldn't be a shock that Bloom fits Aries to a T.

From the moment she shows up at Alfea College, Bloom is told that she's special, and by the end of "Fate: The Winx Saga" Season 2, she fully believes that to be true. As the bearer of the all-powerful Dragon Flame, it does make some sense that she'd rush into situations without completely thinking things through. After all, she believes she has the means to handle whatever life throws at her, just like many Aries do. If you bear the fire sign, you might relate to Bloom's trailblazer attitude and her penchant for getting in over her head.

Of course, being an Aries isn't just about dashing off into dangerous situations and proclaiming your awesomeness for all to hear. The sign of the ram is also known for its fierce loyalty and devotion to close friends, which is something that Bloom embodies beautifully as the fiery heart of the Winx Club.

Taurus: Terra

We're moving on to the first earth sign of the zodiac, and guess what? We've got an earth fairy for it. Terra (Eliot Salt) is the only core member of the Winx who is a new arrival in "Fate," rather than a transfer from the original cartoon. A powerful magic user, potion crafter, and plant mom, Terra's real strength is in her tenacity. She makes it clear from the get-go in "Fate: The Winx Saga" Season 1 that she's not someone to be trifled with, and she stands her ground resolutely whenever she feels her values or her peace being challenged. For all these reasons, Terra fits nicely under the earth sign Taurus (April 19 to May 20).

Typically homebodies who enjoy gardening, relaxing, and following routines, Taureans can also be quite stubborn and tough, hence the bull symbology. Terra brings all of these traits to the table in "Fate." Sometimes she's a calm and measured plant grower. On other occasions, she's a fierce fighter with a chip on her shoulder. Terra tends to heat up whenever her family or friends are in trouble, or simply when her own ideas are being challenged. If you bear the earth sign yourself, you've probably been in similar situations.

Yes, Terra can be a bit much at times, but she's also a great person to have in your corner. As a true Taurus, she won't give up a fight easily, especially if the things she holds dear are at risk.

Gemini: Flora

Though Flora is an earth fairy like her cousin Terra, she's actually a strong match for the air sign Gemini (May 21 to June 20). Look, not every fairy can have their magic element and their star sign match, okay? While Flora's powers are obviously tied to the Earth, her personality is textbook Gemini. She's someone who thrives on learning new things, and whose brain works a million miles per minute.

When Flora shows up in "Fate: The Winx Saga" Season 2, she's returning from a research post — already a strong indicator of the Gemini's insatiable hunger for knowledge. She begins classes at Alfea and almost immediately starts making breakthroughs in the greenhouse. Not only that, but she effortlessly inserts herself into an already-formed social group with hardly any awkwardness at all. Flora develops meaningful relationships with all the other Winx in a staggeringly short amount of time; something only a true Gemini could accomplish.

Social deftness, quick thinking, and a desire to experience new things are the big cornerstones of the zodiac's first air sign. In all those categories, Flora is a straight-A student, just as she surely is during her debut semester at Alfea. And to top it all off, Flora nixes the tired cliché that Geminis are only self-interested by making a noble sacrifice at the end of Season 2, taking the heat to defend her home and her friends.

Cancer: Musa

When we first meet Musa in Season 1 of "Fate: The Winx Saga," she's walking through the halls of Alfea with her headphones on, trying desperately to drown out the emotions of those around her with some sad tunes. As a mind fairy, and a particularly powerful one at that, Musa feels things especially deeply — a sensation that many Cancers (June 21 to July 22) can surely relate to.

Symbolized by the crab, Cancer is the first water sign of the zodiac, as well as the embodiment of teen angst everywhere. Those born under the crab tend to be quiet and sensitive folk, slow to trust and generally hidden behind a cultivated shell of defense mechanisms. However, with enough time and the right support system, Cancers can open up and become fun and intently discerning friends. That, of course, is exactly what happens to Musa when she gets to know the other Winx.

Even after leaving her shell, Musa still trips into some pitfalls from time to time. Namely, she takes the anger out of those close to her without telling them — a literal manipulation of their emotions that leads to dark consequences. Real-world Cancers may have stories of their own about how their quiet efforts to make things just so ended up doing more harm than good. Fortunately, the water sign is also known for loyalty and devotion, so when Cancers make mistakes, they're also sure to set things right.

Leo: Rosalind

Leo (July 22 to August 22) is the larger-than-life leading lady of the zodiac. As fire signs, Leos tend to be big, loud, and at the center of whatever's happening. From this position, they can be either warm and encouraging leaders or egomaniacal despots. And sometimes, they're a little bit of both at the same time.

Rosalind Hale (Lesley Sharp in Season 1 and Miranda Richardson in Season 2) is definitely more villain than inspirational leader. She kills Farah Dowling, manipulates Bloom, puts the students of Alfea in constant danger, and is ultimately punished for her crimes in spectacular fashion. Like many Leos, Rosalind wields power and authority like it's her birthright. Even when her orders rub her subordinates the wrong way, they usually get results, as no one wants to question the head Leo in charge.

The trademark Leo ego is also present in Rosalind's (perhaps overinflated) confidence. She truly believes herself to be one of the most powerful fairies in the Otherworld, and that cockiness leads to her downfall — as it has for many Leos in the real world as well. However, there's a warm side to Rosalind that we glimpse from time to time in "Fate: The Winx Saga" Season 2. Perhaps it's the script, or perhaps it's because Rosalind was recast, but she acts as a genuine mentor to Bloom when she isn't scheming dastardly schemes. Rosalind may not be the kindest Leo, but she's at least strong enough to demand respect.

Virgo: Saul Silva

We're halfway through the zodiac and we've got our first specialist. More specifically, the leader of all the specialists at Alfea College, Saul Silva (Robert James-Collier). Though he shows a softer side to his adopted son Sky (Danny Griffin), Silva presents a strictly professional persona to the world. He's a serious workaholic who's always planning and preparing and rarely has time for levity or breaks. In other words, he's a textbook Virgo (August 23 to September 22).

Practiced, practical, and frequently pessimistic, Virgos are more than just busy bees. They're the engines that drive whatever groups they're in, but that energy often comes from their fierce loyalty and compassion. Silva is a perfect example of this. He loves Sky and the community at Alfea, but he has trouble vocalizing it. Rather than proclaim his feelings through empty platitudes, Silva puts all of his energy into his work — protecting those he cares about from danger and training the next generation to do the same.

Yes, he can be a bit of a sourpuss. No, he's not the most fun at parties. But when the blood witch magic hits the fan, you'd better have Silva and a platoon of Virgos ready for battle. If you do, there's a good chance you'll come out on top.

Libra: Sky

In shows like "Fate: The Winx Saga," you're bound to have someone like Sky — the hot and quiet sad boy who just needs to learn how to accept love. To be fair to Sky, he doesn't let his tropes hold him back too much, as he's frequently on the frontlines fighting for his friends. A natural leader and a discerning young man whose greatest hindrance is his own self-doubt, Sky is an excellent fit as the Libra (September 23 to October 22) of "Fate: The Winx Saga."

The paradox of Libras is that they can be both the most prepared and least confident people in the room at the same time. Sky exemplifies this, as his clear skill as the best specialist at Alfea frequently clashes with his own inhibitions. Fortunately, self-doubt doesn't stop Sky from being a great and encouraging friend and partner. He helps out his specialist buddies, the Winx, and Bloom in every way he can, showing that he's a natural leader in all the ways that matter.

And of course, the fact that Libra is an air sign just makes a boy named Sky an even more perfect match.

Scorpio: Beatrix

The crafty Beatrix (Sadie Soverall) might be an air fairy in "Fate: The Winx Saga," but she proves herself to be the spitting image of the water sign Scorpio (October 23 to November 22). When she first arrives at Alfea, Beatrix dons the persona of your typical mean girl, hooking up with the hot kids and maligning most folks who cross her path. However, it's later revealed that the air fairy has more than her share of secrets, and that her reason for attending Alfea is a sinister one.

Looking at all her actions together, it's hard to categorize Beatrix as either a hero or a villain. However, she always follows the same internal compass, which is directed primarily by self-preservation. The instinct to protect your secrets and yourself at all costs is a trademark of Scorpios, and those who bear the sign may feel some kinship with Beatrix. Like many Scorpios, Beatrix exudes a thick persona of coolness and danger, but that's only part of the truth. The armor Scorpios wear is built to protect them from betrayal, which is ironic given how they're technically more likely to be the ones doing the betraying.

Beatrix carries this Scorpio legacy with her everywhere, and there's a lot of fun to be had in guessing who she might backstab next. However, in true Scorpio fashion, all that Beatrix really wants is to belong somewhere where she can finally let her guard down.

Sagittarius: Riven

The fire sign Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21) is represented by the archer, but skill with a bow and arrow isn't the only reason it matches so well with Riven (Freddie Thorp). A free spirit with a bit of an edge, Riven keeps most people at bay with his signature brand of cutting wit. Humor is a trademark of the Sagittarius sign, bit again, that isn't the only reason it's such a great fit for the specialist.

The Sagittarius spirit is one of the wanderer, and though Riven spends most of his time in "Fate: The Winx Saga" at Alfea, his personality reveals a great love of new experiences. He's a free lover, a fierce fighter, an herb smoker, and a loyal friend — at least once you pierce through his vale of callousness to see the person underneath.

If you're planning a party, a weekend trip, or a bit of rule breaking, Riven's probably down. Then again, most Sagittarians would be. Like those born under the fire sign, Riven isn't exactly the most diplomatic person, and his big mouth and nonchalant attitude have gotten him into more than a bit of trouble. He's made mistakes, and he's admitted his faults. But when the chips are really down, Riven's someone you truly count on.

Capricorn: Aisha

She may be a water fairy, but Aisha isn't exactly the most go-with-the-flow character in "Fate: The Winx Saga." Quite the contrary, she's barely able to function without some kind of plan in mind. Fortunately, that's rarely a problem, as Aisha plans for pretty much every scenario. It's one of the many traits that makes her a perfect fit for the earth sign Capricorn (December 22 to January 19).

Aisha's isn't just the brains of the Winx Club. She's also one getting the group organized, motivated, and ready to roll. Real-life Capricorns may relate to this role, as many share the instinct to take charge and make things happen. Of course, that instinct can also cause Capricorns to come off as condescending, unfriendly, or just plain mean. When Bloom first meets Aisha in "Fate: The Winx Saga" Season 1, that's her first impression, and it isn't entirely wrong.

However, as Aisha becomes more comfortable with Bloom and the rest of the Winx, she learns to pull back on the pessimism. This is something that most born under the earth sign must do at one time or another in their lives, and when they do, they may emerge just as Aisha does — free of the negativity (for the most part) but still the most capable person in the room.

Aquarius: Farah Dowling

As headmistress of Alfea College during "Fate: The Winx Saga" Season 1, Farah Dowling (Eve Best) plays a unique role in the story. She's a mentor to Bloom and the other fairies, always interested in their growth and development, but she's also a powerful Otherworld figure with an agenda of her own. Dowling feels the weight of the world and never ceases in her efforts to make it a better place — a plight that those born under Aquarius (January 19 to February 18) might recognize.

Known as the most humanitarian sign in the zodiac, Aquarius also has a reputation for emotional distance. It's a curious combo, but one that makes sense when you stop and think about it. After all, how could you possibly function with the good of humanity (or fairies) on your shoulders if you felt every individual thing equally as deeply? This is the scenario that births Farah Dowling — someone who wants the best for all of her students, but who must remain distant in order to achieve that goal.

Of course, it is possible for an Aquarian to let down their walls with individual people, which is exactly what happens with Dowling and Bloom. Sadly, the two don't get to spend much time together as true friends before the cruel hand of fate intervenes.

Pisces: Stella

Stella might not seem like a Pisces (February 19 to March 20) at first glance. Or second, or even third. You might feel inclined to slot her in as a Leo because of her rich girl vibes in Season 1, or maybe as a Cancer for her sad girl energy in Season 2. But really, Stella's more complicated than any of that. She's a person who wants desperately to just be a normal person, but who cannot escape the larger ramifications of her actions.

The balance between open-hearted wonder and grown-up responsibility is a defining trait of Pisces. Many born under the water sign seem distant to others, like they're operating on another plane. And in many ways, they are. Stella shows this throughout "Fate: The Winx Saga" Season 2. She wants to be present with her friends at school, but she also knows that she has a larger responsibility. The things Stella knows as part of the royal family change her and her perspective on the world, forcing her to move down a parallel but different path than that of her friends.

While this duality does trouble Stella at times — just as it can be a lot to bear for many Pisceans — the light fairy also gets opportunities for genuine joy. It's in these moments of release and freedom that we see the true Stella and the true Pisces that she is.
