The CSI: Miami Character You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Like all the properties within the "CSI" franchise, "CSI: Miami" uses its own set of visual and aural cues to bring viewers into its iconic setting. Most obviously, there's the show's distinct orange tint, which separates it from the moody greens of "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" and the steely blue of "CSI: NY." There's also the theme song, kicking off with Roger Daltrey's iconic "Won't Get Fooled Again" scream, which is usually paired with some beautiful shots of the ocean. If neither of these things immediately remind you what show you're watching, surely Horatio Caine (David Caruso) dramatically putting on his sunglasses while uttering a sadly ironic catchphrase will put you in the mood.

Like the rest of their crime-solving brethren, the cast of characters on "CSI: Miami" is made up of a lot of different personalities. There's the fearless, stoic leader — Horatio — a chipper southern belle, a charming ladies man, and plenty of other forensic experts. It wouldn't be a crime procedural without office romance, of course, and "CSI: Miami" delivers on this premise as well.

Though many of the characters in "CSI: Miami" grow and evolve over the course of the show, they also pull heavily from well-known archetypes. If you're interested in learning how you might be written into the series yourself based on your own archetypal personality traits, we've got you covered. Keep reading to find out which "CSI: Miami" character you are based on your zodiac sign.

Aries: Frank Tripp

Though most of the characters on "CSI: Miami" have some sort of scientific specialty, Detective Sergeant Frank Tripp (Rex Linn) is just a regular policeman. For this reason, one might imagine he wouldn't get along well with the rest of the forensics team, but we come to learn that he has a grudging respect for what they do. He gets along especially well with Calleigh, a southerner like himself.

Frank's a pretty old-fashioned guy, and he doesn't have a lot of patience for stupidity or nonsense. He has a bit of a temper and can be short with people when he feels they're not giving him a straight answer. Nonetheless, like his CSI colleagues, he has a passion for justice and helping others, having grown up wanting to be a firefighter until an injury derailed his plans.

The sign that best describes Frank is the first sign of the zodiac, which is Aries (March 21 to April 19). Symbolized by the ram and associated with the archetype of the warrior, Aries is typically worn by passionate, competitive individuals who value action over words. Headstrong and determined, Aries-bearers tend to act before thinking and often have an aggressive streak. Nonetheless, they are typically honest and determined individuals driven to get things done. Like Frank, they can be short-tempered when things are taking too long, but that's because their passion and energy are hard to tamp down.

Taurus: Ryan Wolfe

Ryan Wolfe (Jonathan Togo) is a chemical traces expert who joins the "CSI: Miami" team in Season 3. Though all of his colleagues are pretty scientifically-minded, Ryan is an especially by-the-books individual. He's loyal to his job and his duties, and he doesn't like when others don't take things seriously. Despite this attitude, Ryan has his own demons, having struggled with a gambling addiction that derails his career at one point.

Ryan makes the most sense as a Taurus (April 20 to May 20), which is a fixed earth sign. Taureans tend to be very practical and reliable people who are devoted to their jobs. Because of their placement as fixed signs and their association with the bull, Taureans are often described as especially stubborn individuals. Being surrounded by familiar, comforting things is important to them, as they feel reassured by tradition.

Ryan's practicality is one of the things that align him most with the sign of Taurus. He's generally quite methodical in his work, though on occasion he lets his passions get the best of him. On the other hand, Ryan's Taurean stubbornness sometimes gets him into trouble. Rather than coming clean about his gambling and asking for help, he's determined to work through it on his own — a decision that costs him his job. Like many in this zodiac placement, Ryan could definitely benefit from leaning on his friends a little more and learning to let go of his preconceived notions about how life should go.

Gemini: Eric Delko

Those born under the sign of Gemini (May 21 to June 20) are curious and entertaining communicators. Represented by the twins, Geminis are the most versatile and adaptable of the signs, and they love to learn and have new experiences. Youthful and energetic, Geminis are cerebral air signs who tend to know a little bit about a lot of things.

Eric Delko (Adam Rodriguez) is a charming jack of all trades, which makes him a prototypical Gemini. Delko is an expert in drug identification, tire tracks, and also collecting evidence underwater. He's extremely committed to his job, but not as serious as some of his colleagues. He's confident, easygoing, and doesn't seem to have any trouble with the ladies. Though he might come off as a bit of a player, he's also very protective of women, especially when they've been mistreated by men.

Like most Geminis, Delko is good with people, but his charming demeanor hides a caring, compassionate heart. He occasionally loses his temper, but he's very trustworthy and is always there for his team. Though Delko may have a fairly carefree personality, he still has a very analytical mind like the rest of his CSI colleagues, illustrating the more cerebral nature of his star sign.

Cancer: Alexx Woods

Alexx Woods (Khandi Alexander) may be a medical examiner, but she doesn't have the steely demeanor you might expect from someone in her position. A mother of two originally from Queens, Alexx is a very caring, maternal figure who treats victims with a lot of empathy. She has a very friendly bedside manner, even though all her patients happen to be cadavers. In fact, she often talks to the corpses on her table, referring to them by names like "honey" and often commenting that they were too young to die.

Because of her empathetic and compassionate nature, Alexx makes sense as a Cancer (June 21 to July 22). Emotional water signs, Cancers are referred to as the nurturers of the zodiac. They're very sentimental and have a strong connection to all things related to family and the home. Extremely loyal and sympathetic, Cancers tend to take on other people's problems as if they were their own.

Alexx is a committed and loving mother to her two children, but she also sees the members of Horatio's team as an extended part of her family. She takes a maternal role within the CSI team and cares deeply for her colleagues. Despite all of the doom and gloom of her job, she still maintains an upbeat attitude. What this reveals is not that Alexx is naive or ignorant about the horrors of the world, but rather that, like many Cancers, she's extremely tenacious and strong-willed, despite her quiet demeanor.

Leo: Calleigh Duquesne

Calleigh Duquesne (Emily Proctor) is arguably the most cheerful member of the CSI team, but her outward persona camouflages her inner strength and fortitude. A blonde Louisiana native, Calleigh is a bright and cheery southern bell. She believes strongly in karma and the idea of right and wrong, carrying a persistently optimistic attitude. Charming when she needs to be and serious when the case calls for it, Calleigh possesses a deadly combination of charm and wit.

Despite her apparent simplicity, Calleigh is actually a fascinating individual, and the star sign she most aligns with is that of Leo (July 23 to August 22). Passionate fire signs, Leos are said to be filled with warmth and creativity. Often stereotyped as being vain and dramatic, Leos are driven by a need for admiration and respect for their peers, but they can also be entertaining, generous, and warm-hearted. And they're definitely not afraid of standing out and showcasing their bright personalities.

Because she's blonde, southern, and comes off as sweet and harmless, Calleigh is routinely underestimated by those around her. Rather than letting this anger her, Calleigh uses these assumptions to her advantage, easily tricking suspects into saying things they shouldn't. It's not that Calleigh's sweetness is simply an act -– she really is a kind, cheerful person –- but rather that she's both sweet and very astute. She isn't especially vain or extravagant like some of her Leo brethren, but her magnetic personality illuminates the lion within.

Virgo: Megan Donner

Mutable earth signs, Virgos (August 23 to September 22) are associated with the archetypes of the healer and the analyst. They tend to be perfectionists who are constantly processing information and trying to come up with solutions. Virgos think in a very logical, systematic way and are all about the details. Loyal and hardworking, they can sometimes be uptight and overly critical –- both of themselves and of others.

Megan Donner (Kim Delaney) may have only been on "CSI: Miami" for less than a season, but she has a strong personality from the get-go. Megan proves herself to be extremely devoted to the job, especially when children are involved. A very by-the-books person, Megan sees no need to develop relationships with anyone on the team outside of work. She doesn't believe in unscientific things like hunches or gut feelings, relying exclusively on the evidence at hand.

This puts her at odds with many members of the team, who find her to be too uptight. We later learn that the reason Megan acts the way she does may be because her husband, who was also a detective, died on the job not long before she came to work with the team. Unfortunately, we don't get to see much development for Megan's character, as she was written out of the show due to a perceived lack of chemistry with David Caruso's Horatio (per EW). Perhaps if she'd stayed around longer we'd have gotten to see a softer side of this extremely logical character.

Libra: Natalia Boa Vista

Usually, the bad guys on "CSI: Miami" come from outside the department, but for a moment there, it seemed like there might be an enemy within the team itself. Natalia Boa Vista (Eva LaRue) first appears on the show in Season 4 as a DNA analyst on cold cases. At the end of Season 4, the team finds out that Natalia is actually an FBI agent working undercover to build a case against Horatio and the rest of the crew. Though the team is initially upset with her for the deception, she tells them she only reported information that made the team look good, which they come to learn is the truth.

Because of her commitment to justice and right and wrong, Natalia is clearly a Libra (September 23 to October 22). Symbolized by the scales and associated with the archetype of the diplomat, Libras are fair-minded individuals who dislike conflict and disorder. Relationships are extremely important to them, as they often find their own self-worth reflected in other people. They're interested in equality and helping other people, though they sometimes struggle to make tough decisions.

Though Natalia initially enters the department as a mole, she finds the team to be filled with passionate individuals dedicated to their jobs. She works in a highly regimented world, but Natalia often follows her gut and her own sense of justice. She eventually quits the FBI and officially joins the CSI because she really believes in the team. Like others born under Libra, her commitment to equality –- rather than orders from above -– drives her actions.

Scorpio: Yelina Salas

Every good hero needs a foil, and for Horatio Caine, that foil is Yelina Salas (Sofia Milos). Yelina is (or was) Horatio's sister-in-law, as she was once married to his (supposedly) deceased brother. Horatio eventually reveals his feelings for Yelina but refuses to act on them because of her connection to his brother. Despite this, Yelina remains an important presence in his life, both because of her job as a detective and their personal connection.

Yelina reads pretty convincingly as a Scorpio (October 23 to November 21), which is the most mysterious of all the signs. Associated with the archetype of the alchemist, Scorpios are intense, perceptive, intuitive individuals. Brave and resourceful, Scorpios are confident in their abilities and very strategic in their actions. They are passionate friends and lovers, but also make for terrifying enemies as their powers of manipulation are unparalleled.

Yelina is not a Scorpio in the villainous sense, but she does have the enigmatic aura about her that the sign is known for. Though Horatio has known Yelina for years, she remains perpetually out of reach. Much of this is Horatio's own doing, but Yelina also keeps things close to the chest, which makes her a great detective. She's extremely intuitive and focused, making her a great intellectual match for Horatio. If only he could get over his own chivalry for a moment, theirs could be a union made in heaven (or at least by the stars).

Sagittarius: Jesse Cardoza

The sign of Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21) is symbolized by the archer, and it's known as the philosopher of the zodiac. Friendly and generous, Sagittarians are committed to discovering the truth and pursuing self-improvement. Cheerful and humorous, they love to explore and have new experiences.

Jesse Cardoza (Eddie Cibrian) is one of the most well-liked members of the "CSI: Miami" team. Respected by all of his colleagues, Jesse is laid-back, cheerful, and not easily annoyed. He isn't irked by having to do the more unpleasant jobs of a CSI, and he seems to take everything in stride. He speaks softly and in a very calm manner, making those around him feel at ease.

Jesse may not be as restless and high-energy as some of his fellow Saggitarians, but he does have the friendly, jovial attitude that the sign is known for. It's easy to feel comfortable around Jesse because of his calm demeanor and his compassionate attitude. It's important not to mistake Jesse's laid-back manner for laziness, however, as he's actually quite observant and adept at noticing the small details his colleagues might miss. Like many on the team, there are two sides to Jesse. He's quiet and serious when working on a case, but he has a great sense of humor and loves having fun when he's off the clock. It's just too bad he couldn't stay around for longer.

Capricorn: Horatio Caine

The team leader on "CSI: Miami," Horatio Caine is a man of mystery. Despite the dedication he shows on the job and the compassion he has for his crew, Horatio can be hard to get to know. He's a very reserved and stoic character, and he doesn't reveal much about his personal feelings or experiences, but he does show that he cares through his actions. Horatio does his best to fight for justice, but he also believes strongly in second chances.

It makes the most sense that Horatio would be a Capricorn (December 22 to January 19) — the sign associated with the archetype of the leader. Capricorns are extremely responsible individuals who are motivated by duty. Though they may initially come off as cold or uncaring, they tend to warm eventually. Capricorns rely a lot on discipline and self-control, repressing any emotions that might get in the way of their objectives. Realistic and hard-working, Capricorns are especially good at managing others.

We've seen time and time again that Horatio puts the needs of others above his own. His actions can be a bit self-punishing at times, as he struggles to allow himself the space to truly find joy. Horatio's self-sacrifice clearly takes a toll, as he occasionally reveals his darker side in the later seasons. Even though he's the one delivering all those one-liners at the start of the show, he doesn't display much of a sense of humor himself. A true Capricorn, he's entirely focused on completing the task at hand.

Aquarius: Tim Speedle

Out of all the members of the "CSI: Miami" team, Speed (Rory Cochrane) is probably the strangest and most aloof. A sarcastic character who sometimes seems like he doesn't care, Speed nonetheless becomes quite exasperated when people interfere with his work. He maintains that he only does his job for the paycheck, and he doesn't express the same passion for criminology that his colleagues do. He's fine with being seen as a weirdo and professes that he doesn't care what others think.

Speed fits well under the sign of Aquarius (January 20 to February 18). Known as the humanitarians of the zodiac, Aquarians are cerebral air signs who tend to think about things from a big-picture standpoint. They value personal freedom above all else and tend to have progressive or even eccentric ideas. Though they have big thoughts about how the world could improve, they sometimes struggle to connect with others.

Speed has the eccentric, analytical mind that Aquarians are known for, as well as the obsession with his own independence. We know he's had romantic relationships in the past, but they've never worked out, perhaps because of the aforementioned qualities. But while Speed professes that he doesn't have strong feelings about his job one way or the other, he sometimes slips up and reveals that he actually does care. The discerning Horatio believes in him, which is enough to convince us that Speed has more redeeming qualities than he might initially let on.

Pisces: Walter Simmons

As the last sign of the zodiac, Pisces (February 19 to March 20) is often said to encompass all that has come before. Naturally intuitive, Pisces are extremely empathetic and can even seem mystical. Gentle and wise, they sometimes struggle to distinguish between fantasy and reality because they don't have a strong sense of boundaries. They often have the seemingly contradictory appearance of being both extremely youthful and very mature at the same time.

Along with Jesse, Walter Simmons (Omar Benson Miller) is the last member to join the "CSI: Miami" team. Walter easily gets along with the rest of the team because of his friendly, jovial manner. Even-tempered and kind, Walter's something of a gentle giant; despite his large stature, he's afraid of many animals. Nonetheless, Walter's not a pushover and isn't afraid to stand up for himself when the time calls for it.

Like many Pisces, Walter is a deep thinker, and his intuition allows him to make smart connections between different pieces of evidence. He dislikes conflict and feels uncomfortable when he's in unknown circumstances. Despite his deceptively gentle nature, Walter is a savvy investigator, and his thoughtful, patient attitude is a huge asset to the team.
