The Marvel TV Show You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Since Phase 1 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe began in 2008 with the release of "Iron Man," the MCU has gone in many interesting directions. One of these directions is the production of TV shows based on Marvel properties, beginning with the ABC series "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." Of course, there have been Marvel television shows in the past — namely, a number of beloved animated series — but this renewed foray into TV marked an important moment for the MCU. As tallied up by Polygon, there have been a total of 17 shows in the MCU since 2013, with more to come.

One of the best things about the proliferation of Marvel properties on television is the breadth of content that has now been made available. While in the past superheroes were mainly brawny guys (and girls) fighting established villains, now we have shows like the grief-stricken, magical-microcosm of "WandaVision" and the creepy, mind-bending world of "Legion" to choose from. While not every foray into television is going to be successful (we're looking at you "Helstrom" and "Inhumans"), the best thing about this televisual expansion is that there's a little something for everyone. With that in mind, here's the Marvel TV show you are based on your Zodiac sign.

Aries: Jessica Jones

Though it's not the first TV series in the MCU or the first MCU series on Netflix, "Jessica Jones" stars the Marvel character who most closely aligns with the first sign in the zodiac. Born between March 21 and April 19, the sign is quick-moving, determined, and sometimes impatient, via Astrology. Competitive and passionate, those born under this sign are enthusiastic and act on intuition rather than logic. The character of Jessica Jones aligns with many of these characteristics — both the positive and the negative.

She is incredibly strong and always determined to get the job done, often making decisions based on gut instinct. As discussed by The A.V. Club, anger can sometimes be a problem for Jessica, something that also applies to the zodiac's fiery warrior. Though there are other important characters on the show, Jessica's behavior drives the tone and pace of the series, moving in the direction of her anger-filled instincts. For all you quick-moving Aries out there, Jessica is an example of why you can't just rely on impulse alone. Luckily, her intuitions are typically correct, but she could definitely work on her impulse control.

Taurus: Luke Cage

Compared to his impulsive Defenders teammate Jessica Jones, Luke Cage is a fairly calm person. Because of his stoic demeanor, Luke and his titular series are most representative of the sign of Taurus. Born between April 20 and May 21, Taureans are stubborn earth signs who love stability and routine. Patient people who don't like change, those born under this sign are extremely devoted to the things in their life that they care about, via Astrology. They are the type of people who "wear the same outfit every day," as Co-Star says, which certainly rings true for our hoodie-clad hero, Luke.

Like Jessica, Luke is something of a reluctant hero, having gained his powers as the result of being experimented on in prison. One of the things most important to Luke is his neighborhood of Harlem, something that aligns with the Taurean desire to preserve tradition from the sign's strong connection to place and the home, per NBC News. It makes sense that "Luke Cage" would represent a powerful creature like the bull — the Taurus symbol — at least in part because he is literally bulletproof. Luke's invincibility fits quite nicely with the Taurean quality of stubbornness and perseverance; he can keep fighting, no matter what. Though his reclusive life of being Harlem's protector sometimes takes a toll, we know Luke's always going to pull through, whatever it takes.

Gemini: Loki

Geminis are the sign represented by the twins, and they are often said to be the most two-faced of signs. It's not as if those born between May 22 and June 21 are more deceitful than the other signs, but rather that they have a generous propensity for adaptability and change, via Astrology. Geminis' mutable nature means that they are entertaining, quick-witted individuals who love learning and exchanging new information. Curious and cerebral, there is nothing inherently negative about the qualities of a Gemini. The Marvel series that best suits these core Gemini traits is the Disney+ series "Loki." 

This connection is kind of a no-brainer. "Loki" is literally about coming to terms with the many different versions of yourself that exist and accepting who you are. It's rather difficult to explain the premise of "Loki," but Variety's Adam B. Vary puts it like this: "'Loki' is a cosmic-yet-intimate time-traveling romantic action comedy about how Hiddleston's sexually fluid narcissist finally learns to fall in love with himself." As Loki encounters different versions of himself that exist in different timelines, known as variants in the show, he gets to know himself better and discovers his place within the universe (or the multiverse, as it were). This is an especially Gemini-like journey because it's all about communication (something Geminis are known for) and absorbing information in order to become a better person.

Cancer: The Punisher

The sign of Cancer aligns most with Marvel's Netflix series "The Punisher." This might be a controversial take, but hear us out. 

Born between June 21 and July 22, Cancers are known as nurturing, sympathetic individuals. They are extremely loyal and have a strong connection to family, leading them to be overwhelmingly sentimental and nostalgic. However, that nostalgia can turn to vengeance, as Cancers do not react well to people hurting their loved ones. Frank Castle becomes "The Punisher" because his entire family is killed by a ruthless government official known as Agent Orange. Already suffering from PTSD as a result of his time in the military, this event causes Frank to go into a revenge-fueled rage as he becomes a vigilante with plans to execute everyone involved in his family's murder. 

For the most part, Cancers are depicted as snuggly, sensitive people who love to curl up under a pile of blankets, per Astrology. Frank Castle is most definitely not that, representing the other end of this spectrum. He clearly cares very deeply about his family, but he uses these intense emotions to propel his violent retaliation. He only has two moods: daydreaming about his family or carrying out revenge. Such behavior is not outside the realm of possibility for Cancers, who have a hard time turning off their emotions and are very protective of their loved ones. But all you Cancers out there better not get any ideas from Frank's strategy of dealing with his feelings, okay?

Leo: Runaways

If there's one Marvel show that matches Leo, it's got to be the one most accurately described as "Gossip Girl" meets "The Avengers," per IndieWire. The Hulu series "Runaways" follows a group of rich teenagers in LA who find out their parents are supervillains and that they have their own superpowers, too. Born between July 23 and August 22, Leos are represented by the symbol of the lion, and they are theatrical, extravagant signs who crave attention and respect. Leos are entertaining, creative people, who, though attention-seeking at times, are also for the most part generous and warm-hearted, via Astrology.

Our Runaways align with the sign of Leo in a number of ways. First of all, the central premise of the series is incredibly dramatic and sounds like something a teenager who hates their parents dreamed up in their sleep. Plus, while the Runaways do in fact try to escape from their parents, they have a pretty hard time blending in due to their team including a goth witch with a staff, a glowing rainbow alien, and a literal dinosaur, as noted by Screen Rant. They can't help but stand out, as Leos often do. Even when they do finally find somewhere to hide, it turns out to be an abandoned mansion, which makes perfect sense for a show that has this much Leo energy.

Virgo: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

The first Marvel TV show in the MCU, "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." is also, in some ways, the least bombastic of them all. The series is one of the few Marvel shows that actually isn't about superheroes at all. It follows Phil Coulson and his team of agents as they investigate supernatural phenomena and extraterrestrial occurrences around the world. As a team of humans who often fight against some very non-human enemies, the agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. work in the background of the MCU, never getting the fame and glory their super-powered counterparts receive.

Our titular agents are smart, humble, and extremely resourceful heroes, which is why "Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." aligns most closely with the sign of Virgo. Born between August 23 and September 22, Virgos are hardworking, analytic individuals who love solving problems. Industrious perfectionists, Virgos are okay with working behind the scenes and not taking all the credit, via Astrology. Such a characterization certainly fits the world which S.H.I.E.L.D. inhabits, particularly considering how difficult their job is and how little credit they get. It's a hard job, but someone's got to do it, and we're glad it's this group of hardworking professionals who care more about saving the world than basking in the limelight.

Libra: Cloak & Dagger

The sign of Libra (those born between September 23 and October 22) is all about balance. Symbolized by the scales and represented as diplomats, Libras are cooperative, empathetic signs interested in fighting for justice and keeping the peace, via Astrology. Within the MCU, there's one series that represents these qualities perfectly.

The Freeform series "Cloak & Dagger" follows two teenagers from different backgrounds who use their powers to fight injustice. Tandy, who used to live a privileged life, now works as a thief and has the ability to see people's hopes and dreams when she touches them. Tyrone, who grew up in a working-class family, lost his older brother as a child and has been living in fear ever since. Tyrone's powers give him the ability to see people's fears, and his cloak allows him to transport through what's known as the Darkforce Dimension. 

Bound together by tragedy, Tandy and Tyrone learn that their powers work better together than they do apart, and they set out to right the many wrongs in their hometown of New Orleans. The relationship between Tandy and Tyrone perfectly encapsulates the notion of balance represented by the sign of Libra. They represent two sides of the same coin — the lightness and the dark — and only together do these two sides make a perfect whole.

Scorpio: WandaVision

One of the most important concerns of a Scorpio is the idea of control. Born between October 23 and November 21, Scorpios are intense, magnetic individuals who are very resourceful and calculating, via Astrology. They are incredibly intuitive and have the powerful ability to impose their will onto others through strategy and ambition.

The Disney+ series "WandaVision" is all about control. Following the loss of her twin brother and the love of her life Vision, Wanda Maximoff feels that she has entirely lost power over her life and no longer has anything to live for. Ravaged by grief, Wanda unwittingly creates a world of her own making in which Vision is still alive. In this magically-constructed town, Wanda has everything she ever wanted and is able to control her life in ways she never could before.

Of course, when Wanda is confronted with the fact that she has been holding hundreds of people in some sort of psychic purgatory, she eventually gives up her dream world and returns to reality. But while it lasted, Wanda's magical realm was a fascinating experiment in control and manipulation, two tactics Wanda proved herself to be very adept at. It's only right that "WandaVision" be represented by the sign of Scorpio, whose archetype is the alchemist, per RUSSH. No one is better at alchemy than Wanda, who we come to find out may in fact be the most powerful witch who has ever lived.

Sagittarius: Hawkeye

If you know anything about astrology, you might have been able to guess this one pretty easily. The Disney+ series "Hawkeye" is best represented by the sign of Sagittarius, which is, of course, symbolized by the archer. 

In addition to the obvious symbolic connection between "Hawkeye" and Sagittarius, there are intriguing characteristic similarities as well. Born between November 22 and December 21, Sagittarians are known as the travelers of the zodiac, and they are individuals perpetually on a quest for knowledge and truth, via Astrology. They are funny, spontaneous individuals who tend to circumvent rules and regulations.

"Hawkeye" is populated with characters on a quest to find the truth. Kate Bishop, Hawkeye's protégé, is on a mission to become more like her hero and must eventually confront some hard truths about her mother. Yelena Bolova is on a quest to find out the truth of what really happened to her sister, Natasha. Clint Barton simply wants to get home to his family for Christmas, but gets tangled up in these webs instead. Though Clint is the original Hawkeye, his titular series is just as much Kate's story as it is his. Like her Sagittarian kin, Kate is constantly trying to amass knowledge and experience and become the very best version of herself. Sagittarians are similarly obsessed with self-improvement, which is why this sign fits in so well with "Hawkeye," even without the self-evident archery connection.

Capricorn: Agent Carter

Those born under the sign of Capricorn are known for their strong leadership abilities and responsible, stoic nature. Applicable to those born between December 22 and January 20, this sign is associated with resiliency and hard work. Capricorns are said by Astrology to repress emotions that get in the way of success, often giving the appearance of aging backward due to their maturity at a young age. Within the MCU, there is one series — indeed, one character — who exemplifies these qualities. Having aired for two seasons on ABC, "Agent Carter" follows its heroine as she navigates her new job at the SSR, a precursor to the S.H.I.E.L.D. agency that she would go on to create.

Set in New York City following WWII, the series sees Peggy Carter attempting to navigate the male-dominated world of intelligence and deal with her grief following the loss of Steve Rogers. Peggy's journey in the series follows the contours of a Capricorn archetype in many ways. Agent Carter's ethos is all about being responsible, working hard, and overcoming any difficulties that may arise. At the same time, she sometimes lacks the tools to deal with her emotions productively, something we see in the difficulty she has with letting go of Steve. Both tendencies are especially relevant to Capricorns who, like Peggy, take a while to warm up to people but can be brilliant friends when they finally let you in.

Aquarius: Daredevil

First premiering in 2015, "Daredevil" was the first of Netflix's Marvel series, and it remains one of the highest-rated of the bunch. The series follows Matt Murdoch, a blind lawyer moonlighting as a vigilante. Having lost both his sight and his father as a child, Matt has extraordinary senses but struggles to come to terms with his past. "Daredevil" closely aligns with the sign of Aquarius, the sign most fitting for a misanthropic vigilante like Matt. Born between January 21 and February 18, Aquarians are known as the humanitarians of the zodiac, and per Astrology they are progressive, independent individuals who hold personal freedom in very high regard. 

Though they care deeply about humanity as a whole, Aquarians sometimes have trouble connecting with other humans on an individual level, and for this reason are often found on the fringes of society. This certainly defines Matt's situation as a masked vigilante leading a double life. By day, he's a charming, respectable lawyer, but by night, he's a violent defender of the powerless. This dichotomy begins to create problems in his life, especially because his friends don't know his secret. One of the main tensions in the series is Matt's desire to stay in the shadows, something that puts both his personal relationships and his very life in jeopardy. 

Pisces: What If...?

The last sign of the zodiac, Pisces is associated with dreams and imagination. Born between February 19 and March 20, Pisces are highly intuitive people that sometimes struggle to distinguish between fantasy and reality. They are wise, compassionate, and creative and very often lack boundaries in their lives, via Astrology. If there's one Marvel show that most clearly taps into the more mystical, mind-bending aspects of the MCU, it is most certainly "What If...?" which premiered on Disney+ in 2021. 

"What If...?" takes the concept of the multiverse first illustrated in "Loki" and uses it to make some pretty big narrative leaps, as detailed by Nerdist. As the show's title suggests, "What If...?" imagines what the world would be like were things just a little different. For example, what would happen if Peggy Carter, not Steve Rogers, was injected with the Super Soldier Serum? Or what if T'Challa became Star-Lord instead of Peter Quill? Such questions lead to some intriguing possibilities, and the series relishes in exploring these alternate realities. 

The show seemingly represents an especially Piscean thought experiment, in part because it tends to collapse the boundaries between what could have happened and what did happen. Indeed, the idea of the multiverse means that every possibility has occurred in some universe or other. It's a concept that could have only emerged from the mind of a dreamy Pisces, and we're very glad it did.
