The Rick And Morty Character You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign

"Rick and Morty" is a show filled to the brim with zany characters — some meant simply to produce some laughs from the audience, others with more depth and emotional complexity. When you travel the multiverse in every episode, you're bound to encounter some kooky aliens, gods, robots, androids, anthropomorphic planetoids, hiveminds, and even some regular old humans. And because the animation and cast in "Rick and Morty" are so stellar, it's easy to fall in love with a character after only spending a few scenes with them.

Rick Sanchez himself might scoff at ideas like astrological charts and zodiac signs, but that doesn't make "Rick and Morty" any less perfect of a show for character analysis and personality matching. With so many different faces popping in throughout the animated sci-fi saga, there's someone for every fan to connect with. From series mainstays to one-off fan favorites, and from the Citadel of Ricks to Earth C-137, here's the best "Rick and Morty" character match for each zodiac sign.

Aries: The President

Voiced by sci-fi legend Keith David, President Curtis isn't necessarily the first character to come to mind when we think about "Rick and Morty," but he's a perfect match for the fire sign Aries (March 21 to April 19). Fiery, forceful, loud, and often in charge, Aries fancy themselves the protagonists of the world — the ones leading the charge, even if that charge might not be the most well thought out. Their bravery and their ability to leap into action quickly are two of Aries' greatest strengths, but they can also become weaknesses in the wrong situations. No one who bears the sign of the ram likes being told no, or that their hastily conceived plan isn't actually a good idea, and that can lead to some sticky situations.

All of these fire sign traits aptly describe President Curtis, who at different points in "Rick and Morty" is a stalwart leader and a stubborn, even pigheaded egoist. When Earth is forced to sing for its very existence in a galactic reality TV show, the President Curtis makes the difficult but ultimately correct call of letting Rick and Morty try to win the competition. He doesn't bow to the rasher recommendations of his advisors. However, later on in the show, Curtis reveals himself to be pretty conceited and easily blinded by his own sense of importance. This leads to a violent confrontation with Rick in "The Rickchurian Mortydate." Take note, Aries — know when to step down.

Taurus: Mr. Poopybutthole

Don't let Mr. Poopybutthole's name fool you — he's one of the most loyal, respectful, and upstanding characters of "Rick and Morty." To be fair, that's not a terribly high bar to clear, given that the show's cast mainly consists of vicious aliens, transdimensional monsters, galactic hitmen, and scientists with god complexes. Nonetheless, Mr. Poopybutthole still establishes himself as a measured and grounded presence in the show, and a perfect pick for the Earth sign Taurus (April 19 to May 20).

Introduced as a possible alien invader in "Total Rickall," Mr. Poopybutthole is revealed to be a long-time friend and ally of Rick's. He's a natural homebody — something Taureans will relate to — and is often shown relaxing at home making tea or watching TV. Taurus is known for its predilection for peace, quiet, and routine, and out of all the characters in "Rick and Morty," Mr. Poopybutthole reflects that the best.

Though he doesn't get a ton of screentime, the little yellow guy makes a big impression every time he appears on screen — not because he's loud and ridiculous like a few other supporting characters in "Rick and Morty" we can think of, but because he's just such a subtle charmer. Of course, Mr. Poopybutthole also acknowledges some personal problems throughout the show that betray a certain level of stubbornness. Turns out, he also possesses the negative traits that Taureans can easily fall victim to.

Gemini: Summer Smith

After three signs, we finally have our first main "Rick and Morty" character — the elder child of the Smith family, Summer. At the start of the show, Summer serves primarily as an antagonistic big sister to Morty, but she's quickly brought into the sci-fi adventure fold in a much more concrete way. Snarky and sarcastic but incredibly social, Summer makes a lot of sense as the show's primary Gemini (May 21 to June 20).

The first air sign of the zodiac, Geminis can come off as somewhat contradictory at a first glance. Their desire for knowledge, worldly experience, and human connection is completely authentic, but they can also be a bit flighty and manipulative. Geminis are primarily interested in their own exploration of the world around them, which means that their interactions with other people can become more goal-oriented, for better or worse. Still, at their core, most Geminis do crave relationships with others and can make for incredibly supportive and enthusiastic friends.

Summer exhibits all of these behaviors throughout "Rick and Morty." She's always excited for the next adventure and will even pester Rick to make sure she's allowed to go — a result of both her love of new experiences and her fear of being left out. That fear is something many Geminis will relate to, as are the indecisiveness and lack of confidence that Summer often displays. Protective and easily distracted but also passionate and sharp, Summer perfectly embodies the air sign.

Cancer: Unity

The hivemind being Unity only appears in one episode of "Rick and Morty" — Season 2's "Auto Erotic Assimilation." In a show that introduces multiple new characters every week, that might not seem like a terribly important role, but Unity leaves a huge impression in just her 20-odd minutes of screentime. Her episode is one of the first occasions in which Rick's sense of emptiness and self-loathing becomes truly apparent, as he doesn't take it well when she ultimately rejects him. Though the two share a romantic history, Unity recognizes that it's not healthy for her to be with someone like Rick.

It might seem odd at first to parallel a hivemind consciousness with the water sign Cancer (June 21 to July 22) — a sign usually identified as being quiet, guarded, and reserved. But when you take a deeper look at Unity's behavior and personality, it starts to make a lot of sense. Her whole motivation for assimilating planets is to prevent their citizens from harm. She believes that she can create a more just, joyful, and peaceful world by bringing people into her hivemind. Whether or not that's actually true is up for some debate, but then again, Cancers are always difficult to steer away from the paths they've chosen.

Unity wears her emotions on her sleeve. She trusts herself more than others, but once she begins a relationship with someone, it quickly becomes all-consuming. Cancers will identify with these experiences, but also with Unity's strength.

Leo: Mr. Nimbus

Who should we pick from the sprawling "Rick and Morty" cast to represent the fire sign Leo (July 23 to August 22)? The biggest and brightest-burning sign in all the zodiac, Leo is the life of the party, the loudest laugher, and the monarch of its own universe. Rick himself might have a compelling case for the Leo spot, considering his penchant for throwing ragers and his massive ego, but there's a much smaller "Rick and Morty" character who's just too perfect to pass up for this spot — Mr. Nimbus.

Voiced by series co-creator Dan Harmon himself, Mr. Nimbus only appears in the "Rick and Morty" Season 5 premiere episode, "Mort Dinner Rick Andre." As the King of the Ocean, he instantly fulfills the Leo urge to be treated like royalty, which is the whole foundation of the episode. He also controls the police. And while he dwells under the sea, he's a fire sign through and through. Equal parts charming (at least to Jerry and Beth) and arrogantly frightening, Mr. Nimbus refuses to be seen as anything less than the most important person in every room he's in. At their core, most Leos wish for the same thing.

Mr. Nimbus is certainly more villainous than most real-world Leos, and he takes his desire for deference and authority a bit too far. But you could also make the argument that he's the true Leo — a person who lets absolutely nothing stand in the way of his own sense of glory.

Virgo: Birdperson

The earth sign Virgo (August 23 to September 22) is known for qualities of persistence, dedication, and loyalty. Virgos tend to have a tough time relaxing, preferring to work or find some way to keep busy instead. This predilection for busybody behavior often stems from a lack of confidence, but it can also be a reassuring practice — a "safe space," you might say — for those born under Virgo.

Stalwart and ceaselessly serious, Rick's long-time friend and ally Birdperson is a perfect fit for the sign of Virgo. When he first shows up at Rick's party in the Season 1 finale, he's standoffish at best. Rick has to repeatedly encourage Birdperson to relax even a little bit, though he does eventually start to have fun. Of course, that same night is when Birdperson meets Tammy — a Federation agent actually seeking to imprison him and all of his friends for their past crimes. Sadly, the whole Tammy ordeal may have only reinforced Birdperson's Virgo instinct that tells him relaxation is a dangerous pursuit.

Birdperson's focus on purpose and order are only magnified when he's resurrected as the cybernetic Phoenixperson. Sure, he's being controlled and manipulated by outside forces, but his personality isn't changed so much as it's simply yanked into a more extreme space. Later in the show, it's revealed that Rick and Birdperson initially had a falling out when the latter lost passion for their rebel cause. As a Virgo, Birdperson simply couldn't follow a path that led to chaos and mayhem.

Libra: Jerry Smith

Midway through the zodiac, we finally get to Jerry Smith. Played by veteran voice actor and comedy all-star Chris Parnell, Jerry mainly serves as a punching bag throughout "Rick and Morty." He's often portrayed as dumb and gullible, and no one in his family seems to really respect him. That might make pairing him with Libra (September 23 to October 22) seem a bit insulting to those born under the air sign, but make no mistake, there's a lot more to Jerry than initially meets the eye.

Indecisive yet passionate; pessimistic yet friendly — these are traits that describe both Jerry and other Libras. Though he's frequently made a target by the other members of his family, Jerry from "Rick and Morty" has repeatedly shown his ability to quickly make friends, as well as a tendency to indulge in fantasy, for better or worse. A lover of the outdoors (like most Libras) and an enjoyer of the simple things in life, Jerry also has a pretty traditional view of right and wrong. He can certainly be argumentative, but this side of him primarily comes out when he feels attacked or bullied by the people around him.

Set against the constant sci-fi action of "Rick and Morty," Jerry's distaste for violence and preference for ordinary living could make him seem a little boring in comparison. But for the Libras watching, there's always at least a hint of sympathy and relatability.

Scorpio: Evil Morty

Evil Morty, President Morty, Eye Patch Morty — whatever you call him, there's no doubt that he's one of the most intriguing characters in all of "Rick and Morty." First met in the Season 1 episode "Close Rick-Counters of the Rick Kind," Evil Morty makes multiple appearances throughout the show, leading to a climactic Season 5 finale that sees him get the best of Rick as the president of the Citadel and step through time and space into a whole new multiverse.

Subversive, sneaky, and treacherous by nature, Evil Morty is an excellent match for the water sign Scorpio (October 23 to November 21). That's not to say that all Scorpios are evil — far from it — but those born under the water sign do tend to play their cards pretty close to the chest. Other Scorpios will likely relate to Evil Morty's penchant for scheming, his hesitancy to trust people, and his limitless charisma (at least in comparison to other Mortys).

In addition to Evil Morty's substantial quantity of evil, he has some pretty compelling motivations. He despises Ricks not only because they oppress Mortys, but because the entire foundation of their supremacy — the idea that they're the smartest people in the multiverse — is a lie. As a Scorpio, Evil Morty surely detests dishonesty, and his hatred of Ricks leads him to enact a plan that any bearer of the water sign would be proud of.

Sagittarius: Squanchy

One of Rick's old war buddies, Squanchy is a bit of an oddball. Or rather, he's a bit of a furball — a diminutive and hairy alien creature who enjoys saying variations of his own name. While Squanchy may be used primarily for comic relief, he reveals a lot about himself in just a handful of episodes. He's loyal, joyful, friendly, and passionate — all patented traits of the fire sign Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21).

The main thing most people know about Sagittarians is that they love to travel and experience new things, which is absolutely true of Squanchy. As a member of the resistance movement against the Federation, he roamed all corners of the universe with Rick and his crew, fighting battles and partying hard in equal measure. Squanchy's party spirit is another thing that aligns him with the zodiac's final fire sign, as Sagittarians are often the life of the parties they attend.

Though they primarily love to see new places and meet new people, Sagittarians are also known for being especially warm with their friends. Squanchy is about as loyal of a friend as you could ask for, to both Birdperson and Rick. And when the squanch hits the fan, Squanchy's fire sign intensity burns to the surface, transforming into one of the hardest-squanching characters in the whole show.

Capricorn: Beth Smith

Horse surgeon by trade and a sci-fi action star by birth, Beth Smith is a curious case. She can come off as icy and harsh, but she also has a softer side that's fueled by her family and her dreams. With Jerry being Jerry, it's often up to Beth to take command in the Smith house — serving as both breadwinner and all-around leader. However, it's also easy to imagine Beth taking on this role with any partner, as her natural state seems to be one of leadership.

Of all the major characters in "Rick and Morty," Beth is the clear Capricorn (December 21 to January 20). The last earth sign of the zodiac is marked by qualities of responsibility, emotional control, and social wariness — at least at first. Capricorns tend to keep people at arm's length, preferring to focus on the tasks at hand. They can be pessimistic and condescending, as Beth often is, but they also truly value things like home and family. While Beth rarely gets moments of genuine happiness in "Rick and Morty," she occasionally does manage to relax and enjoy the fruits of her life.

Capricorns also tend to be a bit stubborn, as all earth signs can be. Beth shows this instinct throughout the show in relation to her kids, her husband, and her father, among others. She may be harsh at times, but she's also someone you definitely want on your side when things get weird.

Aquarius: Rick Sanchez

The sign of Aquarius (January 20 to February 18) is widely known for humanitarianism. So how could it possibly apply to Rick Sanchez, a man who repeatedly emphasizes his disgust for most of humanity? It's a fair question. But when you take a closer look at Rick, you'll see that he actually fits the air sign quite well.

For starters, Rick wasn't always the sour old man seen in most of the show. He was a once a scientist working for the good of humanity — hoping to develop technology to enrich people's lives. Even after losing his wife and daughter, he kept a fire in his heart and joined the resistance movement against the Federation. This desire to fight for causes, to stand up for beliefs, is a key trait of Aquarians everywhere. And even after Rick becomes more jaded, he still holds onto the sign's core values of freedom and individuality.

Aquarius isn't just the sign of humanitarianism, after all. It's also the sign of trailblazers — of people who do things others haven't done, sometimes just because they can. That's Rick to a T — a man who distances himself from the people in his life (classic Aquarius) and focuses instead on the unique work he can do. The air sign might not apply to all the Ricks on the Citadel, but for Rick C-137, Aquarius is the perfect match.

Pisces: Morty Smith

Who better to round out our "Rick and Morty" zodiac than with Morty himself? Equally the most capable and incapable teenager imaginable, Morty is an odd but apt choice to represent the water sign Pisces (February 19 to March 20). Known for being both childlike and wise beyond their years, Pisceans can be difficult people to pin down. They might be overflowing with mature advice one moment and lost in a daydream the next. Morty Smith takes that dichotomy to a bit of an extreme in "Rick and Morty," but his persona is undeniably Piscean.

As his grandpa's stalwart traveling companion, Morty's exposed to a lot as a kid. He sees whole planets fall to plagues and wars, experiences brutal tortures, and witnesses horrifying things on strange and deadly worlds. And yet, he never loses his passion for the simple things — snacks, video games, and watching TV. Morty spends a lot of time relegated to the sidekick role, but he occasionally gets to voice his own unique brand of sage philosophy: "Nobody exists on purpose, nobody belongs everywhere, everybody's going to die. Come watch TV." What could possibly embody the Pisces spirit better than that?

Though he's repeatedly treated like a stooge, Morty eventually succeeds in demanding some respect from the rest of his family. Rick always talks about how much Morty needs him, but the truth is that Rick needs Morty just as much.
