The Stargirl Character You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Astrology makes the claim that the position of the stars when you were born has a profound impact on your personality and your fortunes. It can be granular and exacting in its analysis, as a true reading involves one's place and time of birth, but it's also useful as a shorthand template of personality types. Like other forms of divination, such as tarot or the I Ching, the importance of astrology is not so much in determining one's future but rather helping you understand your past and present so you can make better decisions. It's a tool of self-reflection that asks the seeker to divine the patterns in one's life, designed to make you think about what you believe. 

The CW show "Stargirl" is based on the DC Comics character of the same name. High schooler Courtney Whitmore moves to the fictional town of Blue Valley, Nebraska with her mom and new step-dad, Pat Dugan. Struggling to fit in, she discovers Pat's secret past — he was the sidekick of Starman in the Justice Society of America. 

She delves further and finds Starman's weapon, the sentient Cosmic Staff. Courtney is a girl whose fate is ruled by the stars, as she creates a new Justice Society with friends from high school to fight the hidden Injustice Society of America. With all of these clearly-defined personalities, let's determine which "Stargirl" character you are based on your zodiac sign. 

Aries: Courtney Whitmore

The leader of the zodiac is the trail-blazing Aries (March 21 — April 19). Dubbed "the Warrior," Aries often approach obstacles directly and boldly. They are natural and fearless leaders who know how to get the best out of the people that follow them. Aries are passionate about their beliefs and not afraid to fight for them. Sometimes, that passion tramples the boundaries and needs of those around them, but rarely in a malicious way. It's just that Aries believe so strongly in the things that are important to them that they can't understand why others don't feel the same way. This makes them blunt and sometimes prone to losing their temper, though they rarely hold a grudge.

Courtney "Stargirl" Whitmore is a textbook Aries. Already an overachiever as a gymnast and martial artist, she is bored and frustrated with her new life in Blue Valley. When she learns about the JSA and fantasizes that Starman might have been her real father, she goes all-in on the superhero thing, heading out on patrol without thinking of the consequences. She pushes Rick Tyler and Yolanda Montez to join her and is happy to let Beth Chapel get involved as well. An intense but chipper leader, Courtney sometimes rubs people the wrong way, but her enthusiasm and belief in others is inspiring. 

Taurus: Jordan Mahkent

Taurus the bull (April 20 — May 20) is an Earth sign dedicated to material goods and pleasures. Referred to as "the Sensualist," Taurus is less interested in flights of fancy and more interested in what will be immediately beneficial on a physical level. Far from being hedonists, however, they are extremely hard-working and dedicated to achieving their goals. This also makes them stubborn and single-minded, unwilling to deviate from their point of view and methodology. A Taurus tends to be an all-or-nothing kind of person, and they are often reluctant to compromise or negotiate. A Taurus is willing to work for a long time to meet their goals. 

Jordan "The Icicle" Mahkent is the leader of the Injustice Society of America. Of course, in his own eyes, he is a hero. He creates a foundation called The American Dream which is dedicated to revitalizing America, one small town at a time. His goal is to improve America by taking down its government and putting in measures (under his rule, of course) that would improve the daily lives of everyone. In order to achieve that goal, he is willing to kill anyone who gets in the way, which includes the original JSA (which he destroyed in 2010) and the new JSA that Stargirl begins. All of this is very much in line with the values of a Taurus — stubborn, single-minded, and concerned with material well-being. 

Gemini: Barbara Dugan

Gemini (May 21 — June 20) is known as "the Communicator," and they have certainly never met a stranger. They know how to think on their feet and are quick-witted in a highly entertaining way. They get along with everyone and are highly charismatic as they have a way of making everyone feel special when they're talking to them. However, they can be a bit flaky and do best when they can depend on decisive, solid partners. They are thinkers and open to new ideas, even if they are outlandish. As a result, they are always coming up with new solutions to persistent problems. 

Barbara Dugan is certainly a Gemini. The mother of Courtney Whitmore and wife of Pat Dugan, she settles in Blue Valley to take a job with The American Dream foundation. She gets the job because of her wit, her intelligence, and her ability to effectively communicate with anyone. When she eventually learns that her daughter is Stargirl and her husband is a super-hero sidekick, she is initially furious that they had kept this secret from her. However, she quickly adapts to this new reality and becomes a crucial member of Team Stargirl, encouraging and advising her daughter and the others. She is also key in helping ferret out Icicle's plan and communicating with the Shade, who finds her charming.

Cancer: Pat Dugan

Dependable Cancer (June 21 — July 22) is the rock of the zodiac and known as "the Nurturer." Family is the highest priority in their lives, especially when it comes to nurturing and protecting them. They are sensitive and emotional people, often willing to step in and solve the problems of their loved ones. They are warm and are especially adept at helping people heal old traumas. However, they can get stuck in their ways, unwilling to try new solutions or break out of long-held traditions. All they want is a nice, peaceful life. When that peace is disrupted, they can grow sullen and anxious. 

Who is Blue Valley's resident Cancer? It's Pat "Stripsey" Dugan, of course. In the past, Pat is the sidekick and driver of Starman in the Justice Society, and while he endures a lot of abuse at Starman's hands, Pat loves his brother figure. Even after most of the JSA is killed by the Injustice Society, Pat still feels a responsibility for their legacies — especially Starman's. Being a good dad to his son and a good step-dad to Courtney is all that is on his mind when he moves to Blue Valley. It makes him anxious when Courtney finds the Cosmic Staff and becomes Stargirl, but his response is to protect her by building the S.T.R.I.P.E. armor and going into action to battle villains alongside her. When his family is threatened, Pat does whatever it takes to protect them.

Leo: Henry King Jr.

Flashy Leo (July 23 — August 2) is known as "the Creative" of the zodiac. They are stand-outs in whatever they do, but they love performing best of all. Leos are often actors or professional athletes who love the roar of the crowd and the exuberant feeling this gives them. Leos are confident and ambitious, as they want to be the best of the best. This can make them self-centered and vain, but it can also make them warm and generous for those around them. Indeed, they are natural leaders, in part because they don't like taking orders from anyone else. 

Henry King, Jr., the son of demented Injustice Society member Brainwave, is very much a Leo. A star athlete, he makes sure he is seen and heard around his high school. Sometimes, this leads to picking on people he sees as weak, but he is also capable of great sensitivity. Before being betrayed by Cindy Sherman, Henry and Yolanda Montez had a close love relationship, and he later feels bad about shaming her later on. When he starts to develop his own mental powers, all he wants to do is protect his father. However, when he later learns that his father had killed his mother, he decisively moves against him, helping the new JSA. 

Virgo: Yolanda Montez

Virgo (August 23 — September 22) is known as both "the Healer" and "the Analyst" of the zodiac. Virgos are practical and caring, putting their intellect behind detail-oriented solutions for the benefit of others. They tend to believe they know best and sometimes get stuck in their ways as a result. Sometimes, their critical discernment makes them judgmental, even if they don't see it that way. Virgos like having a plan and sticking to it, and they can resent anything that gets in their way. If they don't feel useful, Virgos can feel listless and depressed. Above all else, they want people to feel and do better.

In "Stargirl," Yolanda "Wildcat" Montez is a Virgo. A straight-A student, overachiever, and church-going girl, Yolanda feels her life go topsy-turvy when she is humiliated by a prank set up by Cindy Burman. While she keeps to herself when she is shamed, Courtney Whitmore offers her a way out of her funk when she sees Yolanda sparring. As Wildcat, Yolanda regains her sense of purpose while retaining her Virgo nature of training and wanting to go into situations with a plan. Yolanda sometimes resents Courtney for getting in the way of her plans until she sees that Courtney is helping everyone be better.

Libra: Beth Chapel

Libra (August 23 — September 22) always seeks balance in their relationships. Known as "the Diplomat" and "the Lover," Libras hate conflict but also hate being alone. It's important for Libras to feel like part of a bigger whole as a member of a team. That can mean both friends and family, and if there are conflicts within those groups, they are eager mediators, seeking to simmer tempers in order to get people to find common ground. That desire for harmony can mean that they deliberately avoid conflict, even when it might be necessary. Given that Libras tend to see all sides of every problem, they can sometimes be indecisive. Driven by fairness, they can also feel sorry for themselves if they are excluded. 

It's obvious that Beth "Dr. Mid-Nite" Chapel is a Libra. A caring and slightly nerdy girl, all she wants is time and attention from her overachieving parents. When both are too busy to spend time with her, she finds a new team, the Justice Society. She invites herself onto the team, swiping Dr. Mid-Nite's old goggles and discovering that she can expertly navigate its artificial intelligence system, whom she calls Chuck. She and Chuck become fast friends and she soon proves her bravery and dedication to the rest of the team. She has a way of talking to hotheads like Rick Tyler and Yolanda Montez in order to help calm things down. 

Scorpio: Cindy Burman

Scorpio (October 23 — November 21) is the most mysterious member of the zodiac. Dubbed "the Alchemist," Scorpios are intense, brooding, and deeply charismatic. They are perceptive, especially when it comes to understanding the flaws of others and how to exploit them. They are ambitious to the point of obsession, and they are constantly thinking of ways to transform themselves. They are frequently the epitome of cool, but they really give away much of their true nature. They aren't afraid to explore their deepest, darkest feelings and confront them head-on. While tapped into their feelings, they don't tend to show a lot of empathy toward others. 

The Scorpio of Blue Valley is Cindy "Shiv" Burman. Her father is the deranged scientist dubbed "the Dragon King," and he is also obsessed with rebirth and transformation. He experiments on Cindy, turning her into a walking weapon, leading to her accidentally killing her own mother. Cindy transforms herself from a scared little girl to a ruthless killer and queen bee in high school, ruining Yolanda Montez's life and giving the cold shoulder to new girl Courtney Whitmore. However, after she resurrects Eclipso to further her schemes, she turns on the demon when he sends her to the shadow realm. Her transformation is so thorough that she decides to join the Justice Society. 

Sagittarius: The Shade

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21) the archer uses his bow and arrow to shoot at the truth. Known as "the Philosopher," Sagittarius is deeply curious about ideas and people but is rather blunt when it comes to expressing their opinions. They are fluent in sarcasm, although they rarely mean it to be truly hurtful. Rather, they just can't help themselves when they have something witty (but pointed) to say about other people. They are seekers of knowledge and new experiences, loving to travel as much as they can. Their freedom is important to them, and they hate being tied down by obligations, but they also love helping people, often with great gusto. 

In Blue Valley, the best example of a Sagittarius is Richard "The Shade" Swift, a very old villain with ties to the immortal being Eclipso. A one-time member of the Injustice Society of America, the Shade becomes a member mostly out of boredom and has little use for the Icicle's schemes. He leaves when he gets bored again, restlessly traveling the world. When tracking down Eclipso to destroy him, he first tries to warn off Courtney Whitmore's new Justice Society. While he double-crosses the JSA in order to become whole after being injured by Eclipso, he later redeems himself by rescuing Courtney from the shadow realm and helping to defeat Eclipso. The Shade is witty and quick with a stinging put down, especially for people he doesn't respect.

Capricorn: Rick Tyler

Capricorn (December 22 — January 19) is the stubborn, resolute member of the zodiac who takes on thankless tasks. Dubbed "the Leader," Capricorns take charge not out of ego but because there's a job that needs to be done. Thanks to their relentless work ethic and attention to detail, they usually feel like they're best suited to lead most of the time, and they're not wrong. A Capricorn may not be a visionary, and they can sometimes be a nag, but they will keep things organized and on track. They are responsible, mature, and dedicated to duty. They keep going no matter what and are sometimes too set in their ways. 

In Blue Valley, Rick "Hourman" Tyler is a Capricorn. While not a leader of the JSA, he's the heart and soul of the group, as well as its conscience. He chooses not to kill Solomon Grundy, despite the fact that the monster killed his parents under the orders of the Icicle. Rick understands that Grundy is just a weapon pointed in the direction of his parents and takes on the thankless task of trying to befriend and rehabilitate Grundy. Rick always thinks he's right, sometimes to the detriment of himself or others, but he never gives up. He stays the course despite Eclipso trying to manipulate his temper. Rick doesn't care about being in charge, he cares about doing the right thing. 

Aquarius: Sir Justin

Aquarius (January 20 — February 18) is the iconoclast of the zodiac. Called "the Humanitarian," an Aquarius is likely to go off on a quest for knowledge at the drop of a hat. They are outcasts and outsiders and are comfortable in this role, as they are less interested in immediate intimate connections than seeing the larger picture concerning humanity. They are not especially in touch with their emotions, as they have their head in the clouds while they ponder new theories and ideas. They are highly idealistic and often unconcerned with practical matters. They hate to be tied down to people or situations, valuing their freedom to leave whenever they feel the urge. 

Sir Justin, the Shining Knight, is the Aquarius in Blue Valley. A member of the Seven Soldiers of Victory, that group is scattered and Sir Justin loses his memory. A time-displaced knight from the era of Camelot, Sir Justin is distracted and out of touch with his feelings and reality. He frequently sees visions of his past and the Seven Soldiers' defeat at the hands of the Dragon King. However, it isn't until Courtney is nearly killed by Shiv that he remembers that he possesses the sword Excalibur and saves her life. After defeating the Injustice Society, Sir Justin leaves town and goes on a quest to find the other members of his old team. 

Pisces: Mike Dugan

Pisces (February 19 — March 20) embody characteristics of the rest of the zodiac. They are regarded as "the Dreamer," but in a way that's still in touch with their emotions and the people around them. They are flexible and match the energy of those around them, even as they get wrapped up in fantasy and sometimes overstep the boundaries of others. They are creative, caring, and sensitive, but their daydreams sometimes put them out of touch with reality. They often appear to be simultaneously wise beyond their years and immature for their age. 

Mike Dugan, the young son of Pat, is certainly a Pisces. He admires his dad's benevolent energy and matches it, but he becomes obsessed with joining the new Justice Society when he learns about what his step-sister Courtney is doing. This is despite having no powers or training of his own. To his credit, he saves his family by smashing into Icicle when he threatens to kill them, but that is a one-off that doesn't necessarily make him a hero. He briefly has control over Johnny Thunder's Thunderbolt, but he gives it away to his friend Jakeem, who is a better fit. He oversteps his boundaries too often and puts himself in danger as a result, until his father finally agrees to train him.
