The Star Wars Droid You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign

While "Star Wars" might be set in a galaxy far, far away, there's something about the distinct personalities of the characters that make them feel so relatable to those of us restricted to this galaxy. Audiences could relate to the classic story of good versus evil, family drama, and sacrifice — although the line had to be drawn at questionable sibling relationships. Sorry, this isn't "Game of Thrones." 

Even the droid characters manage to pull audiences in: from the sassy R2-D2 to the resistance fighter C1-10P (commonly known as Chopper), these droids all have strong personalities with incredibly human-like characteristics. And since "Star Wars" takes place in, well, the stars, why not assign zodiac signs to some of these engaging characters? With zodiac characteristics provided by Refinery 29, it's time to take a deeper look at which "Star Wars" droid has big Virgo energy, which one is giving major Leo vibes, and which robot falls under the personality disposition of a classic Taurus.

L3-37 is an Aries

As an Aries, L3 (voiced by Phoebe Waller-Bridge) exhibited signs of resolve, conviction, passion, and bravery. She was one of the most independent droids, as she built herself out of astromech and protocol droid parts. In "Solo: A Star Wars Story," LS took part in leading her own droid revolution during a mission on a mining colony. Her determination and fervor made her stand up and fight for what she believed in, hoping to empower all droids that she saw suffering.

L3 exhibited another classic Aries sign of optimism. She had feelings for her freighter captain, Lando Calrissian (Donald Glover), and believed that they could make a relationship between the two work, regardless of her being a droid and Lando a human. While Lando never returned her romantic feelings, it's clear that he cared deeply for L3 as he was visibly distraught when she was damaged beyond repair during her revolution. Luckily, Lando uploaded her knowledge of star maps into the Millennium Falcon's computer system, allowing L3 to live on.

R2-D2 is a Taurus

R2-D2 was the OG "Star Wars" droid, appearing in most films and TV shows above all else. He was the king of sass and stubbornness in all iterations of the character — clear Taurus behavior. Aside from his stubbornness, R2-D2 had other Taurus traits such as being dependable, faithful, and uncompromising. Generally speaking, Taurus is the most willful and impulsive zodiac sign, which just screams R2.

R2 loyally served Padmé, Anakin, and Luke Skywalker. In the series "The Clone Wars," R2 was Anakin's most trusted droid. When he thought that R2 had been captured, he moved heaven and earth just to get him back, and not because R2 was privy to sensitive information, it was because he was his devoted friend. R2 saved the day countless times, from repairing Queen Amidala's royal starship in "Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace" to rescuing Leia (Carrie Fisher), Chewy (Peter Mayhew), C-3P0 (Anthony Daniels), and Lando (Billy Dee Williams) from Darth Vader's forces on Cloud City in "Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back."

BB-8 is a Gemini

BB-8 was an adorable addition to the "Star Wars" droids in "Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens." He was Poe Dameron's (Oscar Issac) trusted friend and ally to both Finn (John Boyega) and Rey (Daisy Ridley) respectively. While BB-8 was positioned as being the new R2-D2, he was so lovable in his own right that fans of both the original films and the new sequel trilogy finally found something they could agree on – he was the greatest.

Those with Gemini character traits have a caring and inquisitive viewpoint on life. They tend to be adaptable to their surroundings and are compassionate with those around them. As a fun-loving droid, BB-8 fits this zodiac description. His curiosity had BB-8 wandering around exploring his surroundings. He showed kindness to all he encountered, which allowed him to build close bonds with Rey and Finn. It's BB-8's inquiring nature that led him to go and wake R2-D2 in the hopes of completing the map to find Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill) — a key plot point for the entire sequel trilogy. 

K-2SO is a Cancer

K-2SO, voiced by the incredible Alan Tudyk, was introduced in "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story." He was a reprogrammed Imperial security droid who worked alongside Cassian Andor's (Diego Luna) team of rebels. K2 was one to speak his mind openly and freely, never caring if what he said was inappropriate or could hurt someone's feelings. While he was seemingly a droid that did and said whatever he wanted, K2 showed incredible loyalty to Cassian and risked his life to help him and Jyn Erso (Felicity Jones) complete their mission.

Loyal, emotional, and yet endlessly pessimistic, K2 seemed to be a Cancer through and through. He continually provided remarks so snarky that he could have given R2 a run for his money. K2 tended to take a negative approach to things, believing that he and his team would die during every mission, instead of having hope that they'd pull it off. However, once he made up his mind to trust Jyn, she had his loyalty for the remainder of his life, regardless of how short that was. But based on how "Rogue One" turned out, it seems he was right to be pessimistic about surviving their missions.

IG-88 is a Leo

IG-88 (voiced by Taika Waititi) was first introduced in Season 1 of Jon Favreau's hit series "The Mandalorian." He was seen as a tentative ally to Mando (Pedro Pascal), as he had been through several changes throughout the show. IG was initially programmed as an assassin droid tasked with killing The Child, Grogu. However, in the second season, he was reprogrammed as a nurse droid, with his mission being to protect Grogu at all costs.

People born under the Leo zodiac sign are considered to be obstinate, passionate, inflexible, and generous — all characteristics that IG displayed. When Mando first met him, he stubbornly kept trying to blow himself up, believing that it was the logical next step as he didn't think that they would complete the mission. His unyielding agenda of wanting to terminate Grogu in the first season is what caused Mando to shoot him and be mistrustful of him in Season 2. However, IG's heartfelt side came through during his time as a nurse droid, when he went above and beyond to try and save Grogu. His task ultimately resulted in his death...again.

AP-5 is a Virgo

Introduced in "Star Wars: Rebels," AP-5 (voiced by Stephen Stanton) was an Imperial inventory droid who defected to the Rebellion after meeting and befriending rebel droid Chopper. Reminiscent of the friendship between R2-D2 and C-3P0, AP-5 and Chopper's dynamic was the classic tale of opposites attracting, with one being all about rules and analytics, and the other being about straight chaos. As a Virgo, can you guess where AP falls?

Those born under the Virgo zodiac sign tend to be analytical, hardworking, practical, and extremely critical. They display an "all work and no play" attitude in the hopes of getting the job done. As an inventory droid, AP had all of these characteristics. He took a practical look at what the rebels were doing and aimed to organize each rebel base to have a more structured outcome. While most of the characters found AP to be annoying, you can't deny that his quest for organization, while overly critical at times, wasn't such a bad idea for the rebels to adopt.

C-3P0 is a Libra

Alongside his trusted friend R2-D2, C-3P0 was the droid with the longest stint in the "Star Wars" franchise. Like R2, he's been featured in most films and TV shows, bringing his eternal negativity wherever he went. However, it's his Libra personality that was a driving force for 3P0 in all his adventures.

Libras can be gracious, but they hate confrontations. They are social creatures, as they don't like being on their own and rely heavily on self-pity to get through the day. Like a typical Libra personality, 3P0 was terrified of being left alone. This is why 3P0 was often found chasing after R2 as he would rush off to save the day. While 3P0 liked to act as though he knew everything and was involved in the plans, he would have rather stood safely in the background complaining about the state of things to anyone who would listen. When one thinks of 3P0, melodramatic comes to mind. When he and R2 landed on Tatooine in "Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope," he famously groaned to R2, "We seem to be made to suffer. It's our lot in life." Ease up on the self-pity there, 3P0.

Chopper is a Scorpio

Scorpios tend to be resourceful, brave, loyal friends, and quite pigheaded, but they can also have an unbecoming violent streak. Chopper was introduced in "Star Wars: Rebels" as a damaged droid saved by Hera Syndulla (voiced by Vanessa Marshall) during the Clone Wars. Once she fixed him up, he became her loyal companion for years to come. While Chopper's loyalty to his team, and specifically to Hera, knew no bounds, it was his tendency toward violence that made him a true Scorpio.

While many droids on this list have done their fair share of fighting back against the Empire, Chopper's alleged kill count is something of a legend, with him being supposedly responsible for thousands of deaths. Throughout the "Rebels" series, Chopper used his resourcefulness and bravery to save the day countless times. Although many of his plans resulted in chaos, he always made it out alive with his teammates, and that has to count for something. Lesson number one, don't mess with Chopper.

D-O is a Sagittarius

Introduced in the final film of the sequel trilogy, "Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker," little D-O was a welcome addition to the droid family. He built a bond with BB-8 throughout the film and was there to help the rebels' resistance. D-O was crucial to Finn, Rey, and Poe's mission as he had a collection of data in his system regarding the Sith.

Sagittarius personalities are idealistic and generous. However, they don't sugarcoat things, and that's never been more clear than when D-O was quick to say "no thank you" to Rey as she tried to pet him. He didn't care if her feelings were hurt, he knew what he wanted and, subsequently, what he did not. Like a true Sagittarius, D-O was thankful to BB-8 for reviving him and to his new friends for treating him like one of their own. His generous nature saw him become a valued partner for the Resistance. His idealistic personality brought his curiosity to the forefront, as D-O believed he could explore anything...but he was quick to hide if the objects he explored turned out to scare him.

Mouse droids are Capricorns

Those with Capricorn personality traits tend to be responsible, disciplined, and good at managing their time. However, they also tend to expect the worst and can be known to run away at the first sight of danger. This has never been more clear than with the mouse droids seen rolling around the Empire's ships. Mouse droids, or MSE-6s, performed small tasks on star ships. They were known to complete repairs, diagnostics, or would deliver messages throughout the series. They were most famously remembered in "Star Wars: Episode I – A New Hope," where one was seen scampering away in fear from Chewbacca's growl.

As Capricorns, Mouse droids tended to their responsibilities on their own. They managed their time and were disciplined in nature, except, of course, when they were scared and confused. In those cases, Mouse droids were known for squeaking and running away. These little droids may not have been crucial in the grand "Star Wars" universe, but they had their role to play, and like a true Capricorn, they did it to the best of their ability.

Bucket is an Aquarius

R1-J5, also known as Bucket, was first introduced in "Star Wars: Resistance" as the co-pilot to former rebel pilot Jarek Yeager (voiced by Robert Jarociński). Quite the spunky personality, he was given the nickname Bucket due to his wearing a bucket helmet as a personal form of expression.

Aquarius personalities are known for being original, individualistic, and progressive-minded. An older droid who just keeps ticking, Bucket was initially a co-pilot who became a mechanic to help Jarek. He understood the need to move forward with the times. His bucket helmet was a sign of his originality, as it made him stand out above the rest, while his independent nature allowed him to be a valued partner and trusted friend to Jarek. Bucket is a droid that certainly had a lot of personality in the "Star Wars" universe. Considering the other droids on this list, that's saying something.

BD-1 is a Pisces

Pisces are known to have tender, learned, and compassionate characteristics. Those with Pisces character traits can also be overly trusting and have a deep desire to explore. This sounds like the adorable droid BD-1, introduced in the video game "Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order."

BD-1 joined young Padawan Cal Kestis (voiced by Cameron Monaghan) on his journey of finding other Force-sensitive kids throughout the galaxy. All the while, Cal and his team were being chased by Vader's Inquisitors, a group of Jedi and Padawan that turned to the dark side and hunt down the remaining Jedi. BD-1 was one of the only trusted friends Cal had left. He followed his Pisces personality traits of being a gentle droid who helped Cal with data collection and wisely guided Cal on his journey when exploring new planets. BD-1 was also a compassionate droid, as he would put himself in danger to help out Cal because he cared deeply for his new friend.
