The She-Ra Character You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign

When Netflix announced it was producing a reboot of "She-Ra: Princess of Power" in 2017, few could have predicted how beloved and acclaimed the new series would become. Though "She-Ra and the Princesses of Power" ended in 2020, it remains a shining example of modern animation done right — a story made for kids, but which can be enjoyed by viewers of all ages. Gorgeous visuals, a vibrant musical score, and strong storytelling are all key pieces of the "She-Ra" success story, but the show's true strength is in its characters.

From the lead protagonists to the supporting cast, "She-Ra" treats each of its characters with nuance and respect. They change, make mistakes, switch sides, learn, and grow, all through carefully-plotted arcs that sometimes take multiple seasons to complete. While "She-Ra and the Princesses of Power" still embraces traditional episodic cartoon storytelling a lot of the time, the long-term character arcs make even the most ancillary episodes feel significant. Adora, Glimmer, Bow, Catra, and the rest of the cast are constantly evolving in believable and compelling ways, and it is that textured development that elevates "She-Ra" from a good cartoon for kids to a fantastic show for anyone.

With so many great characters, every fan is bound to have their own personal favorite — but which does the zodiac say you most closely resemble? Since the "She-Ra" cast is deeply relatable and cover a wide range of different personalities, values, and motivations, we've placed them closest to their astrological equivalents, and here's the breakdown: The "She-Ra and the Princesses of Power" character you are most similar to based on your zodiac sign.

Aries: Glimmer

The Princess (and later Queen) of Bright Moon and the leader of the rebellion against the Horde, Glimmer is a deeply passionate person, often to the point of brashness. Her desire to achieve victory in the war is both selfish and selfless — a combination of undying loyalty to her people and a need to prove her strength and leadership to those around. Glimmer's the kind of person who'll jump into a situation without fully knowing what she's up against, to the point that she occasionally teleports through walls, into danger, without checking what's on the other side. But though she can get carried away trying to blaze trails, Glimmer is mainly motivated by a loyalty to her friends.

Those who wear Aries (March 21 to April 19) as their sun sign may find a lot in common with Glimmer. Her core traits of bravery and confidence are two of the biggest markers of Aries influence, as are her occasionally quick temper and impatience. Glimmer's willingness to take risks and run onto the front lines ends up helping the Rebellion many times, but that sort of headstrong behavior also ends poorly for her more than once. Like many Aries, Glimmer is the type of person to push past her own limits just to see how far she can go.

Taurus: Adora

Practical. Responsible. Duty-driven. These are words that describe the Earth sign Taurus, which rules from April 20 to May 20. They're also defining characteristics of Princess Adora, better known as She-Ra herself.

At the start of "She-Ra and the Princesses of Power," Adora is a loyal cadet of the Horde. She keeps her shoes shined, arrives early to training, and could be described in most ways as a teacher's pet. After defecting to the Rebellion and attaining the powers of She-Ra, Adora remains laser-focused on the tasks at hand. She's a planner who often sacrifices sleep in the interest of more work or preparation, and she can be quite stubborn when she sets her mind to something.

As a Taurus, Adora also finds comfort in familiarity. A great example of this is how, even after leaving the Horde, she still wears clothes that are quite similar to her old uniform and prefers to sleep on a cot than in a proper bed. Change and uncertainty are often Adora's biggest weaknesses, and if she gets caught off guard, she can quickly become vulnerable. When she knows the game and comes prepared, however, Adora is almost impossible to shake. She's driven by a deep sense of duty that at times gets in the way of her own happiness, and she's just about the most stalwart ally you could ask for.

Gemini: Scorpia

Though she fights on the side of the Horde for most of "She-Ra and the Princesses of Power," Scorpia's personality is friendly, caring, and compassionate from the start. She's a self-professed softy who loves hugs and will talk your ear off about pretty much anything at any time. Though she works hard to keep her own spirits and those of her friends high, Scorpia does occasionally struggle with indecision and a lack of self-confidence, which she tends to compensate for by being even more supportive.

For all these reasons, Scorpia is an excellent fit for the air sign Gemini, which rules the zodiac from May 21 to June 20. Geminis are known for being highly social and open-minded people with a deep love of learning new things and hearing fresh perspectives. Scorpia embodies that natural curiosity. Even when she's actively fighting against the Rebellion, she still manages to admire some of her enemies and even learn from them. Ultimately, those interactions lead Scorpia to change sides and embrace her identity as a Princess. More than anything, though, Scorpia wants to be known as a good friend.

Cancer: Mermista

Princess Mermista can turn into a mermaid, so it only makes sense that she would be a water sign like Cancer (June 21 to July 22). Of course, that's not the only reason the two are a match. Mermista's whole persona might best be described as, like, totally over it — a state of being that many Cancers know well. On the outside, Mermista appears aloof and emotionally removed, often using humor or other deflections to maintain that image. However, in times of vulnerability, she shows the deep trove of emotions she carries inside.

Depending on the episode of "She-Ra," Mermista might be leading the charge on a Horde stronghold, or crying while eating ice cream in the bathtub. Both versions are equally authentic, and in tandem they perfectly represent the duality of Cancer. The zodiac's first water sign is symbolized by the crab, after all, and Mermista embodies that icon throughout the show. She can get pretty doom-and-gloom at times, but with the help of her friends, she's always able to pick herself back up and find a reason to keep fighting. And though she may take a while to truly get to know, she's fiercely loyal to those who have made it through her walls.

Leo: Double Trouble

A latecomer to "She-Ra and the Princesses of Power," Double Trouble is a shapeshifter who loans their talents out to the highest bidder — sometimes the Rebellion, sometimes the Horde. Their love of money and material things is superseded only by their penchant for theatricality, which is something Double Trouble takes particular pride in. They always want to be the center of attention because they believe themselves to be the most talented person in the room at all times. And as it happens, they usually are.

There should be no doubt that Double Trouble fits well under the sun sign Leo, worn by those born between July 23 and August 22. Represented by the lion, Leos are big, loud, flamboyant, and often pretty arrogant. They enjoy luxury and attention and believe themselves fully worthy of both. Those are Double Trouble's main motivations as well. They're a character who always seeks out the winning side. That doesn't mean that their loyalty and friendship are false, just that Double Trouble never quite puts anyone else above themselves.

Leos have to look out for number one, after all.

Virgo: Angella

Queen Angella is the mother of Glimmer, ruler of Bright Moon, and leader of the Rebellion at the beginning of "She-Ra and the Princesses of Power." She's a strong and calculated person driven by her responsibilities as Queen — a motivation that can make her appear cold at times, even to her own daughter. Why does Angella push herself so hard? Part of it is the shadow of what she's lost and a need to protect herself from additional hurt. Part of it is just how she is: careful, protective, and always focused on the big picture.

The Earth sign Virgo (August 23 to September 22) is an excellent match for Angella, embodying her ideals of loyalty and devotion. Like the Queen of Bright Moon, Virgos can get a little lost in their work and need for control, which can create schisms between them and the people they're trying to help. That's a constant block in Angella's relationship with Glimmer, though by the end, the two reach more of a mutual understanding. Angella does everything because of how much she cares for her friends, family, and citizens — even if she's not so good at helping them understand her intentions in the moment.

Libra: Bow

The third and final member of the "She-Ra" core trio, Bow embodies many characteristics of the air sign Libra, which rules the zodiac from September 23 to October 22. He may not be born with the magical powers of the Princesses, but that doesn't stop him from doing everything he can in the fight against the Horde. And yet, Bow's motivation is less about beating the bad guys and more about helping the good guys. He has seen his home be trampled on for years by the war, and he risks everything time and time again — even lying to his own parents about his work — to bring peace and harmony back to Etheria.

Harmony may be the thing Libras value most. The air sign is known for being friendly, diplomatic, and charitable, but also for being a bit vindictive from time to time. This, too, is a quality of Bow's, shown in later seasons when he holds a grudge against Glimmer — someone he cares for deeply — for repeatedly ignoring his advice. In most situations, though, Bow is willing to give people the benefit of the doubt. He's the first one to trust Adora before she even officially leaves the Horde, and he remains a positive and encouraging force throughout "She-Ra and the Princesses of Power."

Scorpio: Catra

"She-Ra" fans may have seen this one coming.

Of course, it's the easy choice to match Catra — someone whose arc is largely defined by scheming and betrayal — with the water sign Scorpio (October 23 to November 21), commonly characterized as duplicitous and untrustworthy. In truth, though, that's an overly simplistic and largely inaccurate portrayal of Scorpios. Catra's story is a great example of how those more negative inclinations can dominate the water sign, but she also carries many of Scorpio's positive and admirable traits.

Strength, courage, dedication, loyalty — these too are parts of Scorpio, and of Catra. In "She-Ra" Season 5, when she finally joins Adora on the side of good and begins to work through her trauma, Catra shows that she can be as devoted a friend as anyone on the show. Much of her turn to the dark side is sparked by Adora's abandonment of her — something Catra has trouble processing because she would never have left Adora if the roles were reversed. Even when she's a villain, Catra shows just how powerful and fearless she is, eventually bringing those strengths to help stop Horde Prime as part of the Rebellion.

And yes, Catra also embodies the more harmful aspects of the Scorpio sign. She always has a scheme and is slow to trust anyone, even after they prove their own loyalty to her. When her back is against the wall, Catra often resorts to her lowest instincts, but with proper support and care, she starts to undo those tendencies and adopts a more healthy mindset towards the people around her.

Sagittarius: Sea Hawk

Wondering how to spot the Sagittarius in a friend group? Here's a hint: if one person keeps shouting "Adventure!" at the top of their lungs, that's probably the Sag.

Of course, we're talking about the one and only Sea Hawk, first introduced in the show's fifth episode and a major player in the story until the very end. Calling him eccentric would be an understatement. He's a person who always wears his authentic self on his sleeve, no matter what situation he finds himself in. Sea Hawk is a captain, and as such, he loves to travel — to explore the wide, magical world of Etheria and live freely on the ocean's waves. He also has a habit of setting his ships on fire, so it only makes sense that he'd be a fire sign.

Sagittarius is the last fire sign of the zodiac, ruling from November 22 to December 21, and it is defined — like Sea Hawk — by a love of freedom and adventure. No matter how dire things get, Sea Hawk is there with a joke and an encouraging sea shanty, manifesting that Sagittarius urge to lift spirits and set sail to new horizons.

Capricorn: Shadow Weaver

Shadow Weaver is one of the more complicated "She-Ra" characters. For years, she was known as Light Spinner, the most powerful sorcerer in all of Etheria and a force for good. But her desire for more power eventually led her down a dark path. After a falling out with the other sorcerers of Mystacor, Light Spinner defected to the Horde, where she grew in strength by bonding with the Black Garnet and took on a new name: Shadow Weaver.

As a surrogate mother to both Adora and Catra, Shadow Weaver was manipulative, controlling, cold, cruel, and even abusive, especially to Catra. After falling out of Hordak's favor, she joins the Rebellion and makes some major contributions to their cause, but she never truly seems repentant for her years of reprehensible behavior. In the end, she sacrifices herself to save both Adora and Catra — not necessarily a fully redemptive act, but an admirable one nonetheless.

Shadow Weaver's combination of intelligence, control, and occasional harshness aligns her well with the Earth sign Capricorn, which rules the zodiac from December 22 to January 19. At their best, Capricorns are exceptional leaders who let nothing slip through the cracks. At their worst, they can be egotistical and cold to the people they claim to be helping. This duality defines Shadow Weaver's story in "She-Ra and the Princesses of Power," making her an excellent torch-bearer for the sign of Capricorn.

Aquarius: Entrapta

Perhaps more than any other part of the zodiac, Aquarius largely operates on its own social and emotional plane, detached from the other signs in many ways. A good amount of those who wear Aquarius as their sun sign are motivated by a desire to learn; to explore new, interesting, often niche ideas. They have a unique way of seeing the world that can put them at odds with the people around them, but once you come to understand an Aquarius, they can be the most loyal and adventurous of friends.

It should be obvious by now why Princess Entrapta is such a perfect pick for the zodiac's final air sign. She's a character motivated by her own internal moral compass — one that prioritizes scientific discovery above all else. That unquenchable desire for knowledge pushes Entrapta to switch sides multiple times during "She-Ra and the Princess of Power," as she usually sticks with whoever is best equipped to help further her research.

In truth, Entrapta still cares deeply for her home and friends, but her ways of expressing that care is often misunderstood. Most of the time, she chooses to focus on what she's good at, but as the show progresses, she also makes major steps towards more lasting connections in her community. More often than not, Aquarius is the sign of the misunderstood, making Entrapta the perfect "She-Ra" character to carry the sign.

Pisces: Perfuma

Princess Perfuma is a gentle soul. When she first meets She-Ra, Glimmer, and Bow, she's hesitant to raise arms against the Horde in any way, preferring to use her plant-based magic in peaceful ways. Even after joining the Rebellion, Perfuma maintains a strong moral compass, prioritizing peace and tranquility at all costs and always looking out for the emotional wellbeing of her friends.

Throughout "She-Ra and the Princesses of Power," Perfuma proves herself to be much more than a soft-spoken hippie with a love of flowers. She is deeply intuitive and discerning of people, even those she hasn't known long. Her compassion doesn't come from naïve optimism, but from overpowering empathy and understanding. Truly, Perfuma embodies the best of the water sign Pisces, which covers the final piece of the zodiac from February 19 to March 20. Pisces are known for being compassionate, creative, and empathetic — all qualities Perfuma embodies in "She-Ra." Her strength comes from the knowledge that she doesn't have to be the strongest or the bravest to be just as important to the Rebellion as anyone else, and her measured energy often comes in handy when tensions get high. As she tells Catra in "She-Ra" Season 5, "It's hard keeping your heart open. It makes you vulnerable. But it doesn't make you weak. And I have to believe it's worth it."
