The James Bond Villain You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign

With 27 films stretching across nearly six decades, regardless of your tastes there is, invariably, a Bond film for everyone. Whether you're amenable to the goofy antics of the Roger Moore era, the classic charm of Sean Connery's tenure, or the kinetic brooding gait of Daniel Craig's output, everyone can find something to love in the franchise. And while the cinematic exploits of 007 have had their ups and downs over the years — if not in quality than in tone — one thing has always remained consistent: the villains rule.

Sure, almost all of them have some iteration of the same plan (steal/build a weapon, often using lasers and satellites, and hold the world hostage). But each Bond big bad brings their own special je ne sais quoi to the table. You can always count on a Bond antagonist to bring their own special flavor of spice and eccentricity; they're charismatic, make big moves, and are often more compelling and multi-dimensional than their martini-chugging adversary.

Just as everyone has their favorite Bond film, they all have that one Bond villain that really speaks to them. Maybe you resonate with teeth-gnashing eccentricity. Or perhaps you prefer the strong, silent type. But in the end, there is a veritable arsenal of Bond baddies, each one more prone to monologuing than the last. So in that spirit of celebration, we've put together a breakdown that pairs every astrological sign with their Bond villain that vibes hardest. Should the zodiac be completely re-jiggered to include the likes of megalomaniacal international villains? Maybe. Wouldn't it be fun to say you're a Blofeld rising with a Dr. No cusp? We think so.

But we don't expect you to talk, we expect you to read ... this list of which Bond villain is emblematic of your zodiac sign.

Aries: Max Zorin

A ram in a china shop, Aries is undoubtedly the most chaotic sign in the zodiac. They don't have a filter, get bored easily, and will do just about anything because hey, why not? If any Bond villain embodies the fiery drive of the first sign of the zodiac, it's Max Zorin (Christopher Walken). The primary antagonist of Roger Moore's final outing as 007, 1985's "A View to a Kill," Max is a genetic nightmare of Nazi experimentation, a poorly wired ubermensch with psychopathic overtones and cash to burn.

Those born between March 21 and April 19 do what they want when they want; launching themselves into life without fear, trepidation, or "a plan." An impatient, thrill-seeking sadist, Max acts first and thinks later, which in his case usually means murdering his own allies without a second thought (much to his bodyguard/girlfriend May Day's chagrin).

Ruled by Mars, Aries are addicted to action and excitement, driven by an intense desire to prove their strength to anyone who'll give them an audience. A true Aries through and through, Max is highly competitive and direct. When Max wants to snuff out the competition in Silicon Valley he takes the most straightforward and bombastic route possible: trigger a super-earthquake and literally crush the competition. Hey, it makes perfect sense in the mind of a genetically freaky, KGB-programmed creep. Aries is an impulsive sign, and nothing says "hothead" quite like attacking Bond with a fire ax on the Golden Gate Bridge.

Taurus: Francisco Scaramanga

Taurus is the homebody of the zodiac. They want nothing more than to envelop themselves in weighted blankets, sip on their favorite beverage, and wear the same loungewear set until the day they die. Francisco Scaramanga (Christopher Lee) may be a ruthless, sadistic, golden-gun-wielding assassin. But of all the villains in Bond's illustrious rogues' gallery, no one is more appreciative of the finer things in life.

The titular big bad of 1974's "The Man With the Golden Gun" is an incredibly dangerous man. But we're pretty sure that all of Scaramanga's antics, including his scheme to sell Hai Fat's Solex Agitator to the highest bidder, are in the service of his love of oysters, good champagne, and all the comforts of island living. Those born between April 20 and May 20 love (well, need) their personal space. For Scaramanga, that means a remote island in Red China waters, outfitted with every automated convenience, an underground funhouse, and all the blue linen suits a man of taste could desire. As Bond notes over dinner, Scaramanga lives quite well, thanks to his million-dollar contracts.

A quintessential Taurus, Scaramanga has an almost regal quality about him; he always keeps his cool and is a thoroughly graceful host given the circumstances. Tauruses are diligent workers that value consistency; they dislike chaos and prefer to find a niche they enjoy (say, killing for profit with a solid gold gun) and then doing it to the extreme. You can always count on a Taurus, and you can always count on Scaramanga, who never met a target he couldn't hit — until, that is, he ran afoul of Bond.

Gemini: Alec Trevelyan

Look, obviously the Bond villain with the code name "Janus" (a.k.a. The Roman god of duality) is a Gemini. The third sign in the zodiac has a reputation for being two-faced. It's not that they're deceptive or duplicitous (though they can be), so much as they are remarkably mutable and at ease straddling two worlds. After all, Geminis are represented by the twins; they contain multitudes. For "GoldenEye" antagonist Alec Trevelyan (Sean Bean), inhabiting dichotomies is the name of the game. On the one hand, Alec is a reliable and accomplished MI6 Agent, a dutiful servant of the British Secret Service with 00 status and apparently as much patriotism and good intent as Bond himself. But on the flip-side, Alec's background tells a different story: That of a furious orphan forced to serve the government that betrayed his Cossack parents.

Those born between May 22 and June 21 are highly intelligent and remarkably quick-witted, which makes Alec a formidable opponent. Like many Geminis, Alec has a tendency to use humor as a crutch to mask deeper hurt — and on numerous occasions, Alec uses his sarcastic, dark sense of humor to cut Bond down using details of their shared history. A Gemini's biggest fear is being left alone with their racing minds. And for Alec, his sadistic mind hasn't stopped racing since the death of his parents, pushing him to view all those loyal to the British government as an enemy.

Cancer: Raoul Silva

Despite the hard shell of their symbol, the crab, Cancers are an intensely emotional sign. They're the kind of person liable to cry if a breeze hits them the wrong way, and then never trust a gust of wind ever again. This describes the hacker Raoul Silva (Javier Bardem) perfectly. The main antagonist of 2012's "Skyfall," Silva is a former M16 agent sacrificed by M in exchange for six agents held by the Chinese government. Like many a Cancer, Silva does not forgive and does not forget, wearing his betrayal on his sleeve and never shying away from the hurt and trauma of being left out to dry by his would-be mother figure. 

Those born between June 21 and July 22 have a tendency to carry deep, raw grudges, unable to forgive and forget the emotional sling of a slight. Being treated as a disposable tool left a deep and violent impact on Silva, who — in a typical Cancer move — shoulders not only his emotional toll but that of all of his fellow MI6 agents, who Silva feels are being equally manipulated. Cancers have a tendency to be haunted by their grief and take everything that happens to them very, very personally. Leaving Silva to rot in a torture cell was just business for M and MI6. But for Silva, M's actions were unforgivable, and due cause for a reign of terror that ultimately put Silva in Bond's sights.

Leo: Auric Goldfinger

Bond villains have a tendency to wear their villainy on their sleeves. By which we mean: their names. There probably isn't a more iconic (or on-the-nose) example of this than Auric Goldfinger (Gert Fröbe), the luxury-loving antagonist of Sean Connery's second Bond outing. Leos tend to be a little bit vain, so we'd have to imagine that good ol' Auric was pleased as punch to have the 1964 film named in his dishonor. Leos are ruled by the Sun, and they act like it. They adore being the center of attention, and exude an undeniable sense of warmth. Contrasted with his villainous cohorts, Goldfinger has a certain charm that sets him apart from his more drab, pouty peers. He's the Bond villain most likely to be lounging poolside, tan activated, with a margarita not far off.

Leos like Goldfinger have a keen interest in luxury. Goldfinger, sure enough, is absolutely obsessed with gold: he kills disposable underlings with gold, he frames his erotica in gold, his clothing is gold. Every aspect of his entire vibe sparkles with the stuff. So, sure enough, when Auric sets about his requisite big bad Bond villainy, gold is the star of the show. He's going to irradiate Fort Knox to become to world's primary gold supplier. Those born between July 23 and August 22 like to take charge of their own destiny, and nothing says "don't tell me what to do" like singlehandedly restructuring the market price of a valuable resource.

Virgo: Rosa Klebb

Those born between August 23 and September 22 are the kind of people who volunteer to clean up after the party; they're highly intelligent, very particular, and have a well-earned reputation for attention to detail. In other words, if a Virgo were a Bond villain, they would absolutely be Rosa Klebb (Lotte Lenya): the second lead antagonist of 1963's 007 film "From Russia With Love." Rosa is the head of operations for SMERSH, the fictional Soviet counterintelligence agency dead set on enacting their sinister motto: "Death to Spies." An exacting perfectionist, Rosa takes her job (killing Bond) very seriously, infusing her sinister machinations with cruel, knife-twisting details befitting the sixth sign in the zodiac. 

While her primary plan of attack (assassinating Bond with the thing he loves most: a beautiful woman) is undoubtedly sound, like a textbook Virgo, Rosa has not one but many backup plans, from contracting the unstoppable Red Grant to taking matters into her own hands (well, feet) with a poisoned shoe-blade. Rosa won't stop until her task is executed to perfection. When she does stop, it's only because she winds up on the wrong end of her protege's handgun.

Libra: Elektra King

If you had to pick the sign least likely to be a Bond villain, you'd probably pick Libra. Represented by the scales, Libras are compassionate folks who ooze charm and tend to avoid conflict at all costs. They take a lot of pride in their ability to see every side of a dispute, and are well-seasoned peacemakers.

That said, Libra's obsession with capital-G "goodness" does lead to an interesting, and arguably villainous, conundrum: Sometimes they can be extremely fake. This is why, of all the Bond villains, Elektra King (Sophie Marceau) is most emblematic of the seventh sign of the zodiac. The daughter of a wealthy oil tycoon, the villainess of 1999's "The World Is Not Enough" has the appearance of a philanthropic oil-baroness looking to invest wealth back into her home country. However, over the course of the film's capers, Bond learns that Elektra is not as innocent as she seems. 

Those born between September 23 and October 22 do have a tendency to be alluring, but fake. Like a typical Libra, Elektra is obsessed with appearances, serving as many things to different people. She may look like a Bond girl, but under those silk dresses and feigned innocence, she's a ruthless, revenge-obsessed killer.

Scorpio: Franz Sanches

Often, the guiding emotion of those born between October 23 and November 21 is fear of betrayal. And no Bond villain gets the rug pulled out from under them quite like Franz Sanchez (Robert Davi), the ruthless Central American drug baron who makes the mistake of opening his heart up to the wrong Walther PPK-wielding friend. Despite their reputation for being intense stern-faced, leather-wearing badasses, Scorpios are actually prime bff material. Bond (who clearly has been boning up on his astrology) is keenly aware of this and uses Sanchez' loyalty against him. 

While the cartel shenanigans of Sanchez are undoubtedly not great, Bond has a different, and far more personal, bone to pick with the drug lord. Namely: He nearly killed his best pal in the whole wide world, Felix Leiter. Indeed, unlike the vast majority of Bond's cinematic offerings, 1989's "License to Kill" isn't about global takeovers, but rather a small-scale tale of vengeance.

Bond certainly knows how to push Sanchez's buttons. Wildly loyal and deeply compassionate, nothing would set off a Scorpio harder than a fake friend. Ingratiating himself into the man's life, and pretending to be a true pal, is perhaps the cruelest way to hurt a Scorpio like Sanchez. After all, this notorious water sign places the highest value on genuine connections. How could you, James?

Sagittarius: Blofeld

If there is one primary antagonist in the Bond franchise, it's Ernst Stavro Blofeld (portrayed by multiple actors including Telly Savalas, Donald Pleasence, Max von Sydow and most recently in "No Time to Die," Christoph Waltz). A criminal mastermind and the big bald head of the global criminal organization SPECTRE, Blofeld is a Sagittarius through and through. Those born between November 22 and December 21 will see themselves in Blofeld's ruthless empirical edge, chummy demeanor, and globe-trotting wanderlust. Sagittarius is an impatient sign whose biggest fear is being forced to stop and slow down, and a quick peek at Blofeld's resume shows that the man has absolutely zero chill when it comes to rest and relaxation. Whether he's launching world-destabilizing nukes out of Japanese volcanos ("You Only Live Twice") or in the Swiss Alps hypnotizing sleeper cells armed with bioweapons ("On Her Majesty's Secret Service"), Blofeld is, if nothing else, a busy man with ants in his pants.

Sagittarius is represented by the warrior-poet Chiron, and while Blofeld is undeniably a man of violence he is also a sophisticate. With his luxuriously long-haired Persian cat in one hand and a nuclear detonator in the other, Blofeld — and Saggitarians in general — are a multi-faceted force to be reckoned with.

Capricorn: Le Chiffre

Like those born between December 21 and January 20, Le Chiffre (Mads Mikkelsen) is a very, very hard worker. A mathematical genius, chess prodigy, and gifted poker player, Le Chiffre lives up to his numeric name as a financial representative to elite criminal organizations. Capricorns have a habit of repressing any emotion that gets in the way of success, which describes the stern-faced Le Chiffre to a tee. The only true giveaway that Le Chiffre is sweating under his poker face is his iconic weepy eye, which weeps blood as if the cold-hearted villains' frustration was bubbling up beyond his control.

Motivated by an unflinching sense of duty, Capricorns like Le Chiffre are incredibly pragmatic, disciplined workaholics but they do have one fatal flaw: They absolutely refuse to admit any and all wrongdoing. Case in point: when Bond foils one of Le Chiffre's money-making schemes, the villain is suddenly out $100 million of his dangerous client's cash. Rather than admit defeat (or that mistakes were made in alerting 007 to his presence), Le Chiffre enters a high-stakes Texas hold 'em tournament at the titular Casino Royale to recoup his losses before his clients discover that their money has been misappropriated. Capricorns have a tendency to take on more than they can chew. So for all the Capricorns out there, we love your "can do" attitude, but take Le Chiffre's hubris as a warning.

Aquarius: Hugo Drax

Aquarians are the idealists of the zodiac. They don't really "do" feelings, preferring the idea of humanity rather than actual people. Those born between January 21 and February 18 are big dreamers obsessed with the long-term potential of our species, personal freedom, and running little experiments to bring the human race to the bigger, better endgame it was always hurtling towards. They're world-builders, and that makes them outsiders. 

While most Bond villains are happy to extort the leading global powers for money with giant lasers or the threat of nuclear war, some baddies are intent on bigger, more intellectual pursuits than simple financial gain. The fictional Swedish entrepreneur of "The Spy Who Loved Me," Karl Stormberg (Michael Lonsdale) absolutely qualifies, what with his plan to wipe out humanity via nuclear self-destruction while chilling under the sea. But when it comes to Bond villains with their eyes on the Aquarian big-picture prize, you have to give it up to Hugo Drax of "Moonraker."

Drax's plan is essentially the same as Stormberg's (i.e. destroy all human life — this time with nerve gas — and create a new "master race" while riding out the mass extinction elsewhere). It's that "elsewhere" in question that sets Drax apart. Aquarians have a tendency to be outsiders with their heads in the clouds, and nothing says "I don't want to live on this planet anymore" quite like literally leaving the planet and going to space. His plot might be wildly nefarious, but you can't fault Drax (or any Aquarius for that matter) for his ability to dream big ... like, space big.

Pisces: Elliot Carver

There aren't a lot of romantics in the Bond villain roster. But there is one exception: Elliot Carver (Jonathan Pryce), the British media baron and turtleneck loving big bad of 1997's "Tomorrow Never Dies." 

While Carver's big scheme is par for the course as far as Bond villains go (provoke a war between two antagonistic nations: profit), Carer is nevertheless a bit of an odd duck compared to the rest of his villainous cohort. Carver is ruled by his heart more than most of his fellow big bads, a typical sign of a textbook Pisces. Like those born between February 19 and March 20, Carver has a tendency to see everything as a sign and take everything very personally. Carver is approximately 40% ticked off at Bond for attempting to foil his plans to obtain exclusive broadcasting rights in China but 60% mad that his wife, Paris, had an affair with Bond before they got married. Pisces tend to get into their heads easily, so Carver being consumed by a personal vendetta against Bond totally checks out. Newsflash, Carver, maybe checking your big, weepy feelings at the door would do you some good in executing your evil plans.
