The Non-Princess Disney Character You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign

True Disney aficionados know it's not all about princesses. The studio has provided a steady stream of iconic characters to generation after generation of audiences. Sure, some of them have worn frilly dresses and tiaras — but just as many have not.

Many of these characters possess instantly-identifiable, unique personalities. This is somewhat similar to zodiac signs, which clearly define people by their tendencies, their likely actions, the things they run towards and others that make them hide away like a Disneyland tourist caught in the rain. 

We've cross-referenced these astrological signs with the personality traits of some Disney favorites, hopefully providing insight not only into the characters you love, but yourself as well. Using the date of your birth, take a look below and see which character you'd be if you were in a Disney story.

Aries: Tigger

The core traits of an Aries are an eager, dynamic, quick, and competitive soul — just like the bouncy ball of energy from the Hundred Acre Wood, Tigger. Aries are extremely competitive, something we see from the effervescent tiger. In "The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh," Tigger quite literally bounds into the room, knocking poor Pooh off his feet before going on to show his competitive streak by challenging his own reflection. "Watch me scare the stripes off this imposter!" he says to himself. 

Anything and everything becomes a competition for Tigger, whether it is bouncing, ice-skating, climbing trees, or whatever else he tries his paws at. Before his latest activity has even begun, Tigger typically proclaims his mantra: "that's what Tiggers do best." Like any classic Aries, Tigger's first instinct is to do everything and be the best at it, demonstrating eagerness and competitiveness.

Where Aries sometimes run into trouble is having other people attempting to keep up, and this is definitely the case with Tigger. The other characters often aren't quite sure what to make of him at first, and he can sometimes rub them — particularly Rabbit — the wrong way. However, when folks get to know Tigger (and most Aries), they discover someone who is incredibly loyal, with an impulsiveness that shakes things up and keeps them on their toes, in the best possible way.

Taurus: Tinkerbell

If you're born under the sign of Taurus, you are strong, dependable, sensual, and creative, just like the sassy pixie, Tinkerbell. While she has a mischievous streak, Tinkerbell is a reliable friend to Peter Pan, although her loyalty to him occasionally borders on obsession.

Tauruses are naturally very sensual people. One enduring Disney myth is that the design for Tinkerbell was based on the screen siren Marilyn Monroe — but she was actually based on actress Margaret Kerry, who provided live-action reference footage for the animators.

The zodiac symbol for Taurus is a bull, and bulls have a reputation for being strong and stubborn. While Tinkerbell may not be depicted as physically strong, she is certainly strong-willed, and her stubbornness is sometimes to her detriment as it clouds her judgment of characters such as Wendy. Tinkerbell and other Tauruses are described as "sometimes hav[ing] trouble respecting authority, especially if asked to do something they think is pointless or should be done differently" — something we see in "Peter Pan" when Tink ignores Peter's requests to take the Darling family to safety, inadvertently placing them in danger.

For all her faults, Tinkerbell is devoted and loyal to those she loves. Those initial stubborn bull qualities float away like pixie dust when someone proves themselves worthy of her loyalty — even her initial enemy and rival, Wendy.

Gemini: Flik

Flik, the plucky, pint-sized protagonist from "A Bug's Life," feels like a Gemini. Traits exhibited by Geminis include being versatile, curious, and kind, qualities Flik has in abundance. While it does get him into trouble, Flik is an inventor, demonstrating an adaptability to situations when things go awry, quickly coming up with a plan A, B, and C to set things straight.

Flik is naturally curious about the world, using what he can find around him to help – and occasionally hinder —his ant colony. The kindness demonstrated by Geminis is seen in Flik as well, particularly in his conversations with Princess Dot when he explains that it doesn't matter if she is small, as even the smallest can still make a big impact.

Geminis are usually social butterflies — or ants, in this case — and are described as being "adept at blending into different groups." When Flik heads out beyond the safety of his island to find strong bugs to assist his colony in fighting off villainous grasshoppers, he soon finds himself in a big bustling bug city. This doesn't faze Flik, however, and he even gives himself a little pep talk saying, "Try not to look like a country bug. Blend. Blend in." This ability to read the room, and adapt accordingly, is a classic Gemini trait. When paired with their natural optimism, it makes them joyful people to be around — just like Flik.

Cancer: Baymax

Few characters embody a sign of the zodiac as fully as Baymax embodies the traits of a Cancer. The squishy personal healthcare companion from "Big Hero 6" ticks all the boxes for the core personality attributes demonstrated by Cancers: intuitive, sentimental, compassionate, and protective.

Built and programmed by Hiro's older brother Tadashi, Baymax is on hand to assist the young protagonist with all that life throws at him — whether it's everyday scrapes and scuffs, processing his grief following the death of his big brother Tadashi, or guiding him through the turbulence of puberty.

Cancers are known for being very in touch with their emotions, and intuitive to those around them, and that is something that forms a big part of Baymax's personality. When people around him are in need, Baymax's intuition kicks in as he is able to sense and diagnose what ailment they might have, from the surface level injuries to the emotionally complex inner turmoil.

Baymax's raison d'etre is to protect and show compassion, and while you could argue he only has these qualities because of the way he is programmed, throughout the film he changes and grows. Through his quiet observations of Hiro, Baymax develops a greater understanding and genuine compassion towards him, to the point where he chooses to make a great sacrifice to save him — not because this is how he has been programmed, but because he has a tangible connection to Hiro that means he would protect him at all costs.

Leo: The Evil Queen

Everyone knows that Disney villains are the most fun characters, and despite their evil ways, there is something about them you can't help but gravitate towards. You can almost take your pick of the villains when it comes to which one is most like a Leo. However, the one that started it all — The Evil Queen in "Snow White" — perhaps most fully embodies Leo's defining characteristics.

Leos are known for being dramatic and fiery, and this is undeniably what we see from The Evil Queen. She is a woman with a penchant for theatrics who lives for the drama — let's not forget that she decides to have Snow White killed, simply so she can be the fairest one of all. Her fiery temper is something that comes to the forefront when she learns the huntsman did not kill Snow White, and she becomes consumed with jealousy and rage, concocting a poisoned apple to kill the young princess.

Leos can also be loving, affectionate, and incredibly generous (something that couldn't be further away from The Evil Queen, but should make any Leos reading this feel a bit better). They're also natural leaders — something we see from her via an unquenchable thirst for power, with seemingly no higher authority to keep her in check. While it is encouraging that there are some differences between a Leo and The Queen, there is little denying that for all her wickedness, she is a commanding presence.

Virgo: Jiminy Cricket

Those born under the Virgo zodiac sign share many traits with this Disney sidekick from "Pinocchio." Like Jiminy, Virgos are described as practical, loyal, gentle, and analytical by nature and "are amazing friends, always there to lend a hand and advice."

Lending advice to Pinocchio is essentially Jiminy's job, as he is tasked with being the boy's conscience. Jiminy is more complex than you might recall, however, as he doesn't always do the right thing or successfully steer Pinocchio in the proper direction. Pinocchio makes mistakes and there are moments when Jiminy questions whether it is even worth trying to help him.

Like any Virgo however, Jiminy is incredibly loyal and sticks with Pinocchio, even when things get dark and sinister. The practical, analytical side of Jiminy Cricket demonstrates what makes him such an excellent guide and confidant to Pinocchio. When he does make mistakes, he analyzes the situation out loud, learning from the things that have gone wrong to be a more knowledgeable little cricket next time around.

According to horoscope.com, Virgos love "trying new things, reading books, and learning about the world," and this is also true of Jiminy. As a conscience, you might expect him to have all the answers already, however, emotions are complex, and deciding what is right or wrong isn't always straightforward. As Pinocchio grows and becomes a real boy, Jiminy also grows with him, and by the end he has undoubtedly earned the shiny gold badge bestowed upon him.

Libra: Duchess

Like most Libras, Duchess is fair-minded, diplomatic, and gracious — important qualities when you are a mother to three very different, very rambunctious kittens. The matriarch of the Aristocats family, Duchess is sweet and caring to everyone she meets, particularly Thomas O'Malley, a street-wise street cat who helps the kittens get home after they are cat-napped and left to fend for themselves by the scheming butler, Edgar.

The symbol for Libra is the scales, representing fairness and balance — something Duchess has in abundance. When the family's path crosses with some traveling geese, Duchess is particularly accommodating and gracious towards them; the same can't be said of Thomas, who doesn't attempt to hide how irritated they make him feel. Diplomacy is key in tense situations such as this, and when others aren't getting on, Libras will frequently step in to keep the peace, just as Duchess does between the geese and Thomas.

Duchess frequently has to act as a mediator between her children who — like most siblings — don't always get along harmoniously. In fact, harmony is something that Libras value above most other things, meaning they are great people to be around when it comes to keeping the peace. Whatever challenges are thrown her way, Duchess faces them all with admirable calmness and elegance that should be an aspiration for anyone, regardless of their sign.

Scorpio: Miguel

"Passionate, independent, and unafraid to blaze their own trail no matter what others think," is what horoscope.com tells us about Scorpios, and it is almost as if this description has been written about the protagonist of "Coco," Miguel.

For Miguel, the most important things are family and music, but due to a complicated past event, these two things are not allowed to exist harmoniously in his home. Deeply passionate about music, Miguel practices guitar and obsesses over his favorite singer, Ernesto De La Cruz; he is forced to keep this love a secret from his family, who have banned any and all forms of music. Authenticity is also something important to Scorpios, and Miguel's passion for music is so strong that he can't help but share it with his family, even when that causes pain.

Represented by the symbol of the scorpion, those born under this sign are known for their stubbornness. We see this clearly in Miguel, who repeatedly ignores his family's demands not to play music. Even when he ends up in the Land of the Dead with the deceased members of his family, Miguel remains stubborn and insistent that they give him their "blessing" to play music.

The flip-side to this stubborn side of a Scorpio is that they are fiercely loyal and determined, and while — like Miguel — their honesty may sometimes get them in trouble, it is a wonderful quality to have.

Sagittarius: Pumbaa

If you're a Sagittarius you're inclined to be optimistic, funny, and generous — qualities exhibited in Pumbaa from "The Lion King." In many ways, Pumbaa is larger than life, demonstrating the extroverted nature of a Sagittarius in the way he makes an instant impression and approaches any and every situation with a bold, confident attitude.

Optimism is something epitomized by Pumbaa and his pal Timon throughout the film, particularly in their famous mantra "Hakuna Matata," meaning "no worries." The Sagittarius sign yields "born adventurers," and paired with their independence and strong will, it means they're quite content doing their own thing away from the herd. Pumbaa, Timon, and Simba break away from their respective groups forming their own unique quasi-family, and it is clear that Pumbaa is quite content with this easygoing, relaxed approach to life.

People born under the Sagittarius sign are imbued with a sense of fun and a strong sense of self that makes them unafraid to poke fun, both at others and themselves. This is something we see in "The Lion King" from Pumbaa, who isn't against a little toilet humor, and is happy to get involved in an exuberant hula number with his best pal.

Capricorn: Carl Fredricksen

With core traits that include being independent and tenacious, it is clear that Carl Fredricksen from "Up" is a Capricorn. As seen in the heart-breaking opening montage, Carl's home is incredibly important to him — and even when the friendly folks from Shady Oaks Retirement Village knock on his door to persuade him to move, Carl's fiercely independent nature kicks in and he refuses to give up his house — taking instead to the sky, affixing balloons to his roof and flying it to South America.

Few people are as determined as Carl to see their mission through, and his motivation to get his house to Paradise Falls (a place that he and his late wife Ellie had planned to go) is demonstrative of his tenacious spirit. Capricorns thrive with a sense of routine and discipline, and before his life-changing move, we see that Carl had been living a very routine existence. There is a palpable sense, however, that Carl is bored by this routine, taking such frustrations out on his reliably unreliable stairlift. Had it not been for the pressure he was facing to move, Carl would have likely kept up the routine.

Like Carl, Capricorns are loyal and "have a funny and sly sense of humor when you get to know them" according to horoscope.com. When he is accidentally saddled with an eager Wilderness Explorer named Russell, Carl is dragged kicking and screaming out of his shell, proving himself to be a fun, trustworthy friend.

Aquarius: Robin Hood

Categorized as being independent, original, and enigmatic, Aquarians are one of the more unique signs. It can be hard to categorize someone so unique — in the Disney universe, however, all signs point towards Robin Hood.

Aquarians are likely to be activists, as they "have a strong sense of social justice and making the world a better place"; with his mission of taking from the rich to give to the poor, Robin Hood demonstrates some of the best Aquarian attributes. Aquarians are broad-thinkers, seeing the big picture of situations where other signs perhaps do not. Like Robin Hood, they are likely to stay one step ahead of everyone else as they have already picked up on the things that others haven't, and made a plan accordingly to get the job done.

Throughout the film, Robin constantly puts the needs of others above himself, and in the process tries to take down the selfish and greedy King John who heavily taxes the poor and keeps all the riches for himself. While Robin can see through the treacherous King and the equally-villainous Sheriff of Nottingham, he also believes in the inherent goodness of people. Like Aquarians, he possesses an analytical side that means he can easily determine right from wrong.

Pisces: Nemo

It seems only right the character that best represents Pisces is a fish, and perhaps the makers of "Finding Nemo" knew exactly what they were doing when they developed the personality for their film's titular clownfish. Pisces are known to be affectionate, empathetic, and wise, all qualities we see in Nemo. He may be young, but after being separated from his father, Nemo quickly grows up and learns from the other fish in the ocean (and the Dentist's tank).

Despite having a sheltered upbringing via his overbearing father Marlin, by the end of the film, Nemo is wise beyond his years and particularly empathetic to Dory. Where Marlin sometimes becomes frustrated by the forgetful Blue Tang, Nemo speaks to her in a kind, gentle way when she is feeling distressed. Similarly, Nemo uses the experience he had in the tank to show empathy to a group of fish he has never met, helping them to "swim down together" and escape from a fishing net.

Pisces are also considered to be intuitive as "Pisces feel things deeply, and have incredibly strong gut reactions." This is also something we see in Nemo when he helps the fish escape from the net, defying Marlin, who just wants to protect him. Nemo knows deep down that he can do the right thing, and his Pisces proclivities shine brightly when he chooses to help them.
