The Rings Of Power Character You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign

The essence of astrology is that our lives are influenced by the position of the stars when we're born. It holds that there are forces beyond our comprehension and understanding that affect our lives on a daily basis. However, it also says that the patterns created by our birth signs can be studied, especially with regard to our emotions, dreams, and habits. It doesn't seek to speculate why this is, or if there's a god or gods behind it. It simply uses a particular method that can help us understand our own motivations and make better and more efficient decisions. Like any ancient system of divination, what you get out of it is entirely up to you. 

The Amazon Prime Video series "The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power" is based on the extraneous Middle-earth writings of J.R.R. Tolkien. Set in the Second Age of Middle-earth, the show features much more talk about gods and fate than the stories set in the Third Age. Indeed, one of the key characters, Sadoc Burrows, is an astronomer and astrologer who gives the powerful and mysterious Stranger a copy of a star chart that he needs. The huge and varied cast, including everyone from noble Elves to humble Harfoots, provides a perfect opportunity to pair characters with zodiac signs. So let's find out which "Rings of Power" character you are based on the stars.

Aries: Galadriel

Aries (March 21 to April 19) is a fire sign that believes in direct action. As it's ruled by Mars, the god of war, it makes sense that those born under Aries are known as warriors. They're stubborn, fearless, brave, and competitive — leaders less because of ego and more because they do what they believe needs to be done. Though prone to anger, they rarely hold grudges. Aries have a tremendous amount of willpower, and they're determined to see things through to the end. They are blunt and lack subtlety, and they hate having to jump through hoops to get what they want.

Galadriel is an obvious Aries in "The Rings of Power." Much different than the more serene version of the character seen in "The Lord of the Rings," this Galadriel is still burning with anger over the death of her brother Finrod at the hands of Sauron. Even though the Elvish leaders claim that Sauron is dead and his Orcs have been exterminated, Galadriel is obsessed with the idea that he's still out there. She leads a company of Elves into hardships so great that they stage a mutiny, and she's given the dubious gift of going west over the sea and receiving her immortal reward in Valinor. She eventually rejects this, lands on the human island of Numenor instead, and tries to bully its Queen Regent into helping her fight. Of course, she's put in prison before she gets her way. 

Taurus: Sadoc Burrows

Taurus (April 20 to May 20) is a sign that's less concerned with dreams and fantasies and much more concerned about their happiness here and now. The Earth sign is all about creature comforts, routines, and practical matters regarding the home. They hate big changes and events that disrupt their daily business, and they're hard workers who can be depended on to finish any job once started. However, the stubborn bull may insist on doing it their way. They're adept at business decisions and know how to provide for their loved ones. They love to keep a comfortable and well-stocked house, and it takes a lot to convince them to leave it. 

The unofficial leader of the Harfoots, Sadoc Burrows is the essence of Taurus. The Harfoots are the ancestors of Hobbits — nomadic people who use a clever camouflage system to hide from potential predators. However, they still love food and comfort as much as their descendants. Given their short stature, their predators include both animals like wolves and men, who they refer to as "Big Folk." Sadoc always stresses the importance of tradition and routine to his fellow Harfoots, and he resists Nori Brandyfoot's attempts to introduce the Stranger into their tribe. Harfoots provide for themselves and only themselves, and the moment the Stranger falls out of the sky foretells evil events in the eyes of Sadoc. 

Gemini: Disa

Gemini (May 21 to June 20) is the chattiest, most extroverted sign of the zodiac, capable of finding common ground with nearly anyone. Geminis are also extremely intelligent and have a wide base of knowledge. Part of this is because they're a little flighty and rarely commit the time for a deep dive into most subjects, but part of it is because knowing a little about a lot of things makes it easier to befriend anyone. Geminis can also be indecisive and aren't necessarily great in a crisis, but they are always a fun time.

Disa, the wife of Durin IV, is the essence of a Gemini. The first female Dwarf to be depicted in a Tolkien adaptation, she's every bit Durin's equal in terms of her fire and her smarts, but her unabashed friendliness is much different from Durin's gruff exterior. When Durin wants to throw Elrond out of Moria because he's mad at him, it's Disa who welcomes the Elf and invites him to stay for dinner. Her chattiness eventually pushes Durin to reconcile with Elrond, helping to reforge their strong friendship. She teases both of them, and like any good Gemini, she flirts with her husband by arguing with him and giving him a hard time. 

Cancer: Arondir

Cancer (June 21 to July 22) is the family-oriented nurturer of the zodiac. A Cancer's idea of a good time is a night in, maybe with a big family dinner at the center of activities. Cancers love routine and creature comforts, but they aren't interested in anything too extravagant. The crab is also loyal and loving, and they'll do anything to protect and nurture their loved ones. They're healers who often seek to solve the problems of their friends and family. Despite their warmth, it's unwise to cross a Cancer, as they rarely forget a slight and can nurse a grudge for years. 

Arondir the Elf is very much a Cancer. As part of the occupying force of Elves in the Southlands, his job is to make sure that the humans there are behaving. Their ancestors had been loyal to the evil Morgoth and his lieutenant Sauron, and the concern is that this evil might persist. Arondir is different in that he shows pity to the humans, but part of this is because he's in love with the human healer Bronwyn. While human relationships with Elves aren't forbidden, they're not encouraged either. Until things start to fall apart, the two mostly just pine for each other. But when the Orcs invade, all Arondir can think about is making a home for Bronwyn and her son Theo. He literally defends them against evil, risking life and limb. 

Leo: Durin IV

The lion roars for Leo (July 23 to August 22), the fiery showoff of the zodiac. They are natural performers known for their dramatic personalities and genuine warmth. Leos are multi-talented and artistic, and they love to involve others as part of their show. They're both genuinely caring and more than a little vain at the same time. Leos dream of greatness, and they're always loyal to those who help them achieve it. A superstar needs role players to help make them look even better, after all.

The Dwarf prince Durin IV is a Leo to the core. He acts wounded when Elrond arrives because he misses his friend so much and challenges Elrond to a big drinking and stone-hammering competition in front of all of his subjects, making a big show of his prowess. In his mountain home of Khazad-dûm, he's a master smith who creates beautiful sculptures and buildings. His greatest discovery is that of the metal mithril, which is both incredibly light and impossible to destroy. When he learns that the metal can help the Elves, and that their fate is tied to it, he gives his pal Elrond an exaggerated look and makes him say "The fate of the Elves is in your hands" one more time. 

Virgo: Bronwyn

Virgo (August 23 to September 22) is the problem-solver of the zodiac. Practical and highly analytical, Virgos look hard for the right answer in every situation. While they have a tendency to be know-it-alls who sometimes give unwanted advice, they're also right more often than not. In trying to help others and fix everything, they can also be overly judgmental. They do it because they think they know what's best for everyone, but that's only because they know not everyone pays as much attention to the details as they do.

Bronwyn is the ideal Virgo healer. In fact, that's her job in her village. She's both the healer and the apothecary, and as such, she's treated with a great deal of respect. She has no tolerance for talk regarding the worship of Morgoth or Sauron, but she really starts to shine as a leader when her village is threatened. She kills an Orc tunneling under a house, cuts off its head, and shows it to the disbelieving villagers when they don't think they're in danger. When they're cornered in a tower by the Orcs, she urges the people to stand. The villagers may not like what she has to say sometimes, but Bronwyn proves to be right nearly every time. 

Libra: Elrond

Libra (September 23 to October 22) is represented by the scales, and this sign always seeks to keep the balance. Because of this, Libras are known as diplomatic sorts because of their need to avoid or mediate conflict. Part of this need to keep the peace is born out of their desire to connect with others. Deep interpersonal relationships are crucial for Libras, who make great friends because they want the best for everyone. Their unwillingness to offend others sometimes leads them to be indecisive, however. 

Elrond is certainly a Libra by nature. Much different than his confident older self, the younger Elrond in "The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power" is still trying to make an impression in the court of King Gil-Galad. He's a smooth politician and speechwriter, and his deep and unusual friendship with Durin IV leads him to Moria and the great fortress of the Dwarves in order to secure an agreement with his old friend. Elrond must thread the needle in appeasing both Durin and his father while remaining true to the mission that Gil-Galad and master blacksmith Celebrimbor give him. He also tries to convince his old friend Galadriel to be more diplomatic with Gil-Galad, especially since she could have easily been punished for pushing her soldiers too far. He's an incredibly effective negotiator because he truly believes everything he says, and he really wants the best for everyone. 

Scorpio: Pharazôn

Scorpio (October 23 to November 21) is an intense and mysterious water sign that's often in the process of transformation. Though its official symbol is the scorpion, it can also be represented by the snake. As Scorpios grow and change identities, they shed their old selves like snakes shedding their skin. The scorpion evokes Scorpios' frequently enigmatic motives and behaviors. Their love of secrecy can often lead to betrayals and other unpleasant surprises. Moody and emotional but also highly charismatic, their perceptiveness makes them natural leaders, but they always have their own agenda.

In "The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power," the biggest schemer is Pharazôn, chief advisor to Queen Regent Míriel. Pharazôn is a highly charismatic leader who often leads rousing speeches in public. While keeping up appearances as Míriel's advisor, he secretly wants to be the next King of Númenor. Pharazôn is even distrusted by his own son, who recognizes his father slipping in and out of different personas for political reasons. Pharazôn ultimately wants to rule both Numenor and Middle-earth at large, and he's willing to go to great lengths to do so.

Sagittarius: Celebrimbor

No one has a cheerier outlook in the zodiac than Sagittarius the archer (November 22 to December 21). Friendly, creative, and often blunt, they can be thinkers, scientists, artists, explorers, or all of the above, as they're typically happy to converse with any group about anything. They're often sarcastic and can't help speaking their mind all the time, which makes them poor diplomats. On the other hand, you always know where you stand with a Sagittarius, and a sarcastic comment is often followed by a kind word in the next breath. You don't want to put a Sagittarius in charge, but you do want their enthusiasm for new projects. 

Celebrimbor is a clear Sagittarius in "The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power." In fact, as the books reveal, he's the smith who forges the Rings of Power for the Elves, unaware that Sauron was making a ring to control all of them. Celebrimbor is more than a mere smith; he's a visionary. The Elvish king Gil-Galad assigns Elrond to help Celebrimbor with his goal: To create a massive foundry in order to make his greatest works of art. Elrond negotiates and gets Celebrimbor to work with the Dwarves, and he's more than delighted to do so. Celebrimbor himself would have been a poor choice to talk to the Dwarves to set up the deal, given his bluntness, but he's the perfect choice to work with them given their mutual respect for craft. 

Capricorn: Míriel

Capricorn (December 22 to January 19) is the stubborn goat that knows how to get things done. Responsible, driven by duty, and relentless workers, Capricorns aren't leaders because they enjoy being in charge, but because they see goals that need to be fulfilled. When others hesitate, Capricorns take charge and do what they have to. However, they're also patient and know that some tasks take time. They're the ones who initiate the task and make sure it's seen through to completion. They do this not for fame or glory, but because of an intense sense of duty. Tradition is usually very important to them. 

The biggest Capricorn in "The Rings of Power" is Queen Regent Míriel. Ruling in place of her dying and increasingly addled father Tar-Palantir, her main aim is to keep Númenor safe. When Galadriel comes and demands a ship, Míriel thinks of the safety of her kingdom first. Later, when Galadriel demands that they form an army against Sauron's schemes, Míriel realizes that the disaster she's feared will strike Númenor may come if she doesn't go. She's aware that her decisions aren't necessarily popular, but she makes them anyway out of her duty to the ideals and traditions of her home.

Aquarius: The Stranger

Aquarius (January 20 to February 18) is the quirky outsider of the zodiac. More concerned with the big picture than any particular individual, Aquarians can seem detached from their emotions and sometimes avoid forming close friendships. They're primarily concerned with the greater good, which can be frustrating for those around them. They're usually loners and sometimes even outcasts, but they value their freedom above all else. They thirst for knowledge and can be deeply spiritual and even mystical. 

The most obvious Aquarius in "The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power" is the Stranger. Aquarius is an air sign, and he literally falls out of the sky near a settlement of Harfoots. The confused Stranger is befriended by Nori, but he's barely able to communicate with her. However, it's obvious that he's enormously powerful and has magical powers, though he seems to have trouble controlling them. It's been theorized that he's actually Gandalf the Grey, though that's just speculation at the moment. The Stranger saves Nori from wolves but accidentally hurts her when he uses magic to heal himself. He's obsessed with the stars and is looking for a certain constellation — obviously with a mission that concerns all of Middle-earth. While he cares about Nori, he knows he must be elsewhere. Without a doubt, he's the most enigmatic character in the entire series. 

Pisces: Nori

Pisces (February 19 to March 20) is the zodiac's last sign — a water sign without boundaries or form. Known as dreamers, Pisceans have a way of feeling both old and young at the same time. They often see small events as signs or omens, and they're drawn to dreaming of a life beyond their everyday experiences, sometimes at the expense of the here and now. When focused, they're highly intelligent, sensitive, and intuitive. They're also quite adept at problem-solving when they're focused, so long as they're allowed to use their own methods. A Pisces is incredibly generous and will help anyone in need, sometimes at their own expense. 

Eleanor "Nori" Brandyfoot is most certainly a Pisces. A young Harfoot, she yearns to do something more than simply go with her people from place to place, foraging off the land. She craves adventure beyond dodging Big Folk, wolves, and other dangers; she wants to see the world. An opportunity to do this literally falls from the sky when the mysterious Stranger crashes down. Though terrified, Nori feels compelled to help him. She does this even though she knows it will anger her parents and the other Harfoots, showing just how idealistic and pure of heart she is. She carries this persona through the end of "The Lord of the Rings: The Ring of Power" Season 1.
