The Mandalorian Character You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign

"The Mandalorian" occupies a unique space in the Star Wars canon. While it's set after "Return of the Jedi," it partially serves as a prequel to "The Force Awakens," filling in some of the gaps between those two films. However, the scale of the story being told is too small to tell the entire thirty year story of what happened in that galaxy far, far away. Instead, it functions as a piece in a larger mosaic that will, undoubtedly, grow over time when new stories are added a bit at a time. 

This is appropriate, seeing as the title character operates on the margins of this galactic civilization. Without the Empire, and as the new Republic is being established, the galaxy is a strange place. Imperial remnants are still around, the Republic is doing its best to patrol space, the Mandalorians are scattered, it's difficult to find sustainable work. So our bounty hunter friend flies around in a ship that's considered a ghost, carrying out jobs as efficiently as he can on his own.

That is, until he meets a child who needs his protection. Then he is sucked into a vortex of crime, strange experiments, magic, and war. His journey has him crossing paths with a slew of colorful, interesting characters. Is there an Earth parallel to the eccentric characters in "The Mandalorian"? Read on to learn how the characteristics of the zodiac are reflected in the show's various denizens — and if your sign makes you a Bib, a Skywalker or a baby Yoda. 

Aries (March 21 - April 19): Moff Gideon

Moff Gideon (Giancarlo Esposito) is the Big Bad of "The Mandalorian." An Imperial officer with enough power to command stormtroopers, keep his enemies guessing, and wield the darksaber, he is the embodiment of an Aries within the series. One of the traits associated with this particular star sign is treating aspects of their lives as a game. Not only does Gideon do this, but he presents himself as the only person who understands the game being played. 

He is one step ahead of everyone ... most of the time. When he first shows up at the end of Season 1, he is a mystery to our main characters. They, however, are not a mystery to him. He knows who they are, what they want, and how to make them doubt their mission. When he finally has the child, Grogu, in his grasp, he doesn't fear his power the way others do. He stares that little green kid down with amusement. This isn't some Imperial with a fetish for destruction and a temper — he is calm, master strategist and puppet master.

Taurus (April 19 - May 20th): Bib Fortuna

They say that individuals born under the sign of Taurus appreciate luxury. They want good food and to pamper themselves. Well, the world of the Mandalorian is a pretty harsh place. This isn't the prequel era, where folks put on fancy dresses to go watch bubble operas; this is the wild west. There's no time to look your best when someone's always got a blaster in your back. 

The closest we get to seeing someone personifying the Taurus is Bib Fortuna. We only see him briefly before Boba Fett shoots him dead, but that moment tells us a lot about his character.

The first time we met Fortuna, he was an underling of Jabba the Hutt. True, he was the greedy slug's right-hand man, but he was by no means rich and powerful. We don't know the specifics of what happened to the character between "Jedi" and season two of "The Mandalorian," but we can guess. It appears that shortly after Jabba's murder at the hands of Princess Leia, Fortuna stepped in to take over.  Years later, he has become a fattened ruler of this criminal empire, and he seems to be really enjoying himself.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Din Djarin

Geminis are said to be very busy people, and no one is busier in this series than the Mandalorian himself, Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal). At first, that's intentional; he needs to keep busy to make a living. While the new Republic is trying to establish itself, there is no common currency accepted across the galaxy. Imperial credits don't spend like they used to, and this means Mando needs to take on as many jobs as possible to keep his ship in the sky.

Then things get super complicated when he meets "the kid." Sworn by duty to protect the Child and get him back to his people, Din is constantly being hunted. Imperials want Grogu, and so do a bunch of other bounty hunters. Plus, he still needs to make a living and frequently repair his ship, so he's still taking on the odd job here and there. 

By the end of the second season, he's way out of his depth. Some Mandalorians he doesn't recognize, with very different beliefs to his own, show up and make him question everything he thought he know about his people. Beskar battle droids are ready to kill, and then a legitimate wizard (Luke Skywalker), who further opens his mind to the mysteries of the universe. He's got a lot going on, but like a Gemini, he's good at finishing the things he sets out to do.

Cancer (Jun 21 - July 22): Koska Reeves

Mandalorians became scarce following an event referred to as the purge of Mandalore. During "The Mandalorian," survivors of this purge move through the galaxy without being noticed. Some people seem to think they were completely wiped out by the Empire. It is during this new status quo that Din Djarin meets three Mandalorians who do not fit within his understanding of Mandalorian culture. One of them is a woman named Koska Reeves (Sasha Banks).

A mysterious figure of few words, Koska keeps to herself quite a bit. As Djin gets to know the Mandalorian trio, she asserts herself a bit more. This is the first aspect of her character that aligns her with the Cancer sign. Typically, Cancers are stand-offish, slow to spend their time with others. Once they do, however, they are fiercely loyal. This is the other aspect of Koska that proves her Cancer status.

She is on a quest with Bo-Katan, the former leader of Mandalore, to retrieve the darksaber and unite the Mandalorians. She would have every right to make her own way in the galaxy, perhaps becoming a bounty hunter herself, but she decided to join up with Bo-Katan to see that her mission is done. Even when they're trapped on an Imperial ship and facing certain death, she does not waver. That is loyalty, and that is a Cancer.

Leo (July 23 - August 22): Greef Karga

When we first meet Greef Karga (Carl Weathers) in "The Mandalorian," he is a boisterous, cocky man with a theatrical flair. Like many Leos, he considers himself an important person and wants everyone to know it. As the leader of the bounty hunter's guild, he has the ability to make or break people. With one word from him, your allies in the guild can quickly become your enemies, as Din found out himself. However, as the series progresses, we begin to unpack more of Karga's personality, revealing just how much of a Leo he really is.

From his first introduction to the end of the episode, audiences are never quite sure where Greef's allegiances lie. Is he under the thumb of Moff Gideon? Does he actually want to help Mando? Or, is he just out for himself? By the season finale, we learn that he has warmed to Grogu and Mando's cause. Instead of selling them out, he picks up his blaster and fights alongside them. 

This change of heart further bolsters the case that he is a Leo, as they are said to be brave, loving leaders. When Karga stops looking out for himself and decides to fight for others, we see what a powerful leader he can be. It's a good thing Din has him on his side.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22): Peli Motto

Din Djarin's ship, the Razor Crest, gets damaged a lot. That's the nature of his business and the world he's in, so he is constantly trying to get it repaired. Most of the time, the folks repairing it are nameless mechanics who speak very little and disappear once their transaction is finished; then, there's this little mechanic on Tatooine named Peli Motto.

Motto (Amy Sedaris) works in Mos Eisley spaceport with three pit droids. Based on the lack of customers, it seems as though she has a lot of free time on her hands. This has made her a bit eccentric. She doesn't merely grunt an affirmative when tasked with a job, she likes to chat a little bit, sometimes even getting snarky. Being so chatty means she knows things like where Din can find work to pay for her help. 

She is so good at what she does (including babysitting), and willing to help without much grumbling, that it clearly makes her a Virgo. Traditionally, Virgos get the job done and are always willing to lend a hand when needed. Peli has helped Mando with more than just repairs, and while she doesn't hesitate to speak her mind, she doesn't complain too much. 

Libra (September 23 - October 22): Luke Skywalker

Another character who makes a brief, but memorable and important, appearance in "The Mandalorian" is Luke Skywalker. His appearance was a welcome surprise by much of the audience, helping tie the series into the classic trilogy that started the whole thing. He may have only been there to take Grogu away to be trained, but his involvement made a lasting impression on the series, justifying his inclusion here. Especially, given his similarities to traits often associated with Libras.

Based on what we've experienced in Luke's previous adventures, we know he cares deeply for others. That connection to the people of the galaxy almost got the better of him when he couldn't stand the idea of his friends being in trouble, but it's who he is at his core. So, when Luke shows up to retrieve Grogu, he doesn't simply pop in and take the little guy away. He burns a path to Grogu by eliminating the dangerous droids about to kill the kid, Din Djarin, and their friends. He's there to assist Grogu, and just so happens to save everyone else in the process. That kind of considerate giving is closely tied with Libra character traits. They are said to believe in peace and harmony as well, which are also well-known Jedi traits. 

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): Grogu

Baby Yoda, the Kid, the Child, Grogu, call him whatever you want — this adorable, little green meme-machine charmed millions upon his reveal in the final moments of the first episode of "The Mandalorian." Almost everything about him was a mystery until he and Mando met up with Ahsoka Tano, and his childhood on Coruscant was revealed. We may not know what happened to him during the time between the fall of the Republic and the start of "The Mandalorian," but one thing is for sure, this kid is a Scorpio.

Some traits assigned to Scorpios are passion and bravery. Grogu cares for his masked friend very deeply. Whenever his life might be in danger, no matter how big the threat, Grogu is always there to save him. Reaching out to the Force, the child has killed beasts much larger than himself to ensure his armored-comrade's safety. Scorpios are also said to be stubborn. Well, no matter how many times Din tells Grogu not to do things like eat fertilized eggs, or mess with his ship's controls, the kid does it anyway.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21): Bo-Katan

When Bo-Katan comes flying into the Mandalorian's life, she puts a crack in the metaphorical armor around his entire existence. After helping save Grogu and himself from being eaten, she removes her helmet. Since he was first discovered by Mandalorians as a child, Din Djarin has believed that true Mandalorians never remove their helmet in front of anyone. She then explains that this belief is not held by every Mandalorian, but specifically a cult of extremists called Children of the Watch. It takes him a while to believe her, but he does eventually allow Grogu and everyone else around him to see his face.

Bo-Katan is far more than just another Mandalorian. She was once their leader, during the reign of the Empire. Following the purge of Mandalore, her people were scattered across space. Now, after the fall of the Empire, she is tracking down the darksaber in hopes of uniting her people once again. That sort of optimism is rare, and certainly a Sagittarius trait. Also, the fact that she doesn't ridicule Din for his obliviousness, instead calmly explaining things to him, is incredibly generous. Which is another trait shared by those born under this star sign.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19): Boba Fett

At this point, the once-obscure character of Boba Fett needs no introduction. He is, as far as general audiences are concerned, the original Mandalorian. Over the course of four movies, a holiday special (technically his first appearance), an animated series, and "The Mandalorian," the character's popularity has only grown. This mysterious man who was, at first, nothing more than a cool-looking bounty hunter in "The Empire Strikes Back" has become one of the most recognizable characters in the saga. Now, he has his own streaming series.

That rise in notoriety reflects the character's journey within the saga as well. Like many Capricorns, Boba is patient, disciplined, and independent. While he wears the armor of a Mandalorian, he technically isn't one of them. In "The Mandalorian," Boba states that he is tied to no one but himself. Like his dad Jango Fett, he's just trying to survive. 

Existing in the background for most of his life, Boba has slowly worked his way up. After retrieving his armor, he returns to Tatooine, kills Bib Fortuna, and claims the throne of Jabba the Hutt. That cool-looking Bounty Hunter, and little boy from "Attack of the Clones," is now a prominent fixture of the galaxy — and apparently in "The Book of Boba Fett," a crime lord. 

Aquarius (January 30 - February 18): Kuiil

The ugnaught living on his own on Arvala-7 is a gentle man. Kuiil (voiced by Nick Nolte) was once an indentured servant to the Empire, and the pain of his actions during that time weighs heavily on him. As much as he'd like to live out his days in solitude, he does not turn away those who need his help. First, it's the Mandalorian himself. Then it's the bounty hunter droid IG-11. He also gives his life to protect the child Grogu.

His intelligence, patience, and willingness to help make him the Aquarius of the show. The reality depicted on "The Mandalorian" is as ruthless as the Old West, and everyone is just trying to survive. That doesn't leave a lot of room for truly kind people to risk their own lives to help others. Kuiil also applies his fierce intelligence in a non-traditional way instead of stripping IG-11 for parts, he reprograms the droid. Patiently, he rehabilitates it, until IG-11 is completely reformed. Whatever terrible things Kuiil did in the past, he has surely made up for.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20): Ahsoka Tano

Intuition is, perhaps, the defining characteristic of a Pisces. Their connection with the Force is what gives a Jedi their intuition. They may not know exactly what's going to happen in the future, but they can sense it. To be a Pisces, however, one has to trust their intuition. That's where Ahsoka Tano (Rosario Dawson) comes in.

A former Jedi living in a self-imposed exile (and also hunting for Admiral Thrawn), Ahsoka carries a lot of scars. Her old master was Anakin Skywalker, before he became Darth Vader, obviously. The loss of that friendship is a burden she still carries during her appearance in "The Mandalorian." She isn't "Snips" any longer. Tano is a dangerous warrior on a mission. 

The damage done by losing Anakin makes her leery of Grogu's connection to Din. She's seen firsthand what can happen when those kinds of feelings go sideways. Still, she is a good person, so she's the one who tells Mando how to find a proper teacher for Grogu. She trusts her intuition, and it will probably serve her and Grogu well since she's free to hunt down Thrawn, while he gets to learn from Luke Skywalker.
