Aries (March 21-April 19)

Erina Nakiri – March 23 (Food Wars)
Boruto Uzumaki – March 27 (Boruto: Naruto Next Generations)
Hayase Nagatoro – April 1 (Don’t Toy With Me, Miss Nagatoro)

Aries is known for their adventurous and confident spirit as they think quickly about the next goal or mission. But oftentimes, they are also impulsive and quick-tempered as they go too far to tempt fate itself. 

Characters like Erina, Boruto, and Miss Nagatoro can go overboard with their audacious personalities. Erina is prideful of her God Tongue and Boruto is impulsive when tackling missions. Meanwhile, Miss Nagatoro might bite if you lay a hand on her Senpai!

Taurus (April 20-May 20)

Monkey D. Luffy – May 5 (One Piece)
Kyouko Sakura – May 9 (Puella Magi Madoka Magica)
Shigeo Kageyama – May 12 (Mob Psycho 100)

Taurus can be a tricky sign to deal with if you’re not careful. They can be loving and warm-hearted as well determined and typically very calm. However, pushing them too far can lead to feelings of jealousy and resentment which at times is paired with their greedy and indulgent nature. 

Luffy tends to be overindulgent in his quest for treasure but determined nonetheless. Kyouko is aggressive at first only to be the caretaker of the group in the end. Be careful of Shigeo as he might appear to be calm and stoic, but if he reaches 100% on his emotion meter, who knows what’ll happen. 

Gemini (May 21-June 20)

Hinata Tachibana – May 21 (Tokyo Revengers)
Hikaru and Kaoru Hitachiin aka The Twins – June 9 (Ouran High School Host Club)
Elizabeth Liones – June 12 (The Seven Deadly Sins)

Gemini is known for their ability to adapt to any situation, utilizing their wit nature to get out of such situations. They can also be perceived as youthful and lively. However, at times they can be inconsistent with their feelings and goals, and oftentimes come across superficial and nosy. 

Hinata’s optimism on life leads her to have good intentions but her actions tend to be reckless. The Hitachiin Twins are delightfully clever as they scheme their way into other people’s business. Elizabeth’s inquisitive nature can be a bit much but she’s never without a pep in her step! 

Cancer (June 21-July 22)

Spike Spiegel – June 26 (Cowboy Bebop)
Usagi Tsukino  – June 30 (Sailor Moon)
Touka Kirishima – July 1 (Tokyo Ghoul)

Cancers are filled with nothing but love, imagination, intuition, and the need to be protective. However, they can also be overloaded with emotions, moody, and clingy. 

Spike might be suave and tends to cling to the past, but he will protect those closest to him at all. Usagi is one of the most famous crybabies in anime history but rest assured, her love for you is undying. And Touka may appear moody but whether they are human or ghoul, she will always have her friends’ backs. 

Leo (July 23-August 22)

Aqua – August 1 (KonoSuba)
Shinya Kogami – August 16 (Psycho Pass)
Ritsu Tainaka – August 21 (K-On)

Leos are filled with creativity and generosity, and are without a doubt, some of the most faithful people you’ll meet. But they can also be bossy and arrogant as they sometimes strive to be the center of attention. 

Aqua’s loud personality can seem like she’s seeking attention but she’s also the most skilled and loyal member of her team. Shinya may be arrogant but his innovative theories make him one of the best detectives for any case. And if you give Ritsu a pair of drumsticks, she’ll steal the show from you but then give it right back to let you shine a little. 

Virgo (August 23-September 22)

Mimosa Vermillion – August 26 (Black Clover)
Ryou Bakura – September 2 (Yu-Gi-Oh)
Tomoyo Daidouji – September 3 (CardCaptor Sakura)

Virgo might come off timid and reserved but their intelligence and diligence is valued. At times, they can fuss over small things, strive for perfection, and become overly critical. 

Mimosa has the capability of looking beyond what some nobles and royals see but can also be abrasive or rude in comments she makes, whether true or not. Bakura, keeper of the Millennium Ring, is kind-hearted and shy in his regular form, but through his alter ego, it’s his perfectionism and intelligence that cause him to be menacing. Tomoyo may be reserved with others but she will give you the honest truth and design the best detailed outfits for all your card capturing adventures. 

Libra (September 23-October 22)

Kirito – October 7 (Sword Art Online)
Naruto – October 10 (Naruto)
Hiro – October 15 (Darling in the Franxx)

Libras will accidentally charm their way to the center of attention with their sociable and easygoing personality. However, they can be flirtatious and self-indulgent, and are the worst decision makers imaginable. 

It’s no surprise that everyone falls for Kirito’s delightful personality but it’s his obsession with gaming that got him trapped in a video game. Naruto is one of the most personable people you’ll ever meet…but all that change in his frog pouch is going to ramen. As for Hiro, he can never quite decide who to partner up with in a Franxx. But you can bet he’ll always be willing to stick up for you and do the right thing an

Scorpio (October 23-November 21)

Krillin – October 30 (Dragon Ball) 
Retsuko – November 6 (Aggretsuko)
Mami Nanami – November 13 (Rent-A-Girlfriend)

A force of nature, Scorpios are always filled with determination and can be passionate and magnetic in personality. On the downside, they can be incredibly resentful and stubborn, and will hold anything against you. 

Krillin might have a gut he can trust but unfortunately, his stubborn nature gets him in and out of life consistently. Retsuko has no trouble attracting people left and right, but her karaoke sessions unleash a fury of anger and dislike toward others. Mami is very much the jealous type but her electric attitude tends to keep her real feelings a secret. 

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)

Yui Hirasawa – November 27 (K-On)
Mai Sakurajima – December 2 (Rascal Does Not Dream Of Bunny Senpai)
Misato Katsuragi – December 8 (Neon Genesis Evangelion)

Those born under Sagittarius are typically comedic, honest, optimistic, and can be philosophical compared to others. However, their blind optimism can lead them astray and cause them to be careless and aloof with many perceiving them to be irresponsible. 

Yui’s aloof nature causes her to get into all sorts of trouble but she remains the fun of the group and can bring a smile to your face instantly. Mai is brutally honest and tends to think outside the box when it comes to life itself, but in some situations, her actions appear irresponsible given her line of work. Being the director of her own team, Misato is as straightforward as one can get, but with some of her more unhealthy habits, she tends to come off careless and reckless to others. 

Capricorn (December 22-January 19)

Kaguya Shinomiya – January 1 (Kaguya-Sama: Love is War)
Kyo Sohma – January 15 (Fruits Basket)
Levi Ackerman – December 25 (Attack on Titan)

Capricorns are known for maintaining discipline, thinking practically and methodically, and have strong ambitions. On the downside, they can be incredibly pessimistic, thinking only of the worst possible outcome, and are known to hold grudges. 

Kaguya’s thought process and ambition is what causes her to succeed in not showing her true emotions but oftentimes, it also leads her to assume the worst will happen. Being part of a secret zodiac family, Kyo learns to follow rules as closely as possible but his grudge against others keeps him a box of being the black sheep. Lastly, Levi perhaps is the most practical and disciplined of all which shows as he becomes a big part of the Survey Corps. But the more he loses, the more he closes up, ultimately shutting himself off from others. 

Aquarius (January 20-February 18)

Minato Namikaze – January 25 (Naruto Shippuden)
Giyu Tomioka – February 8 (Demon Slayer)
Tsuyu Asui – February 12 (My Hero Academia)

Aquarius are known to be upbeat and friendly, and have a strong sense of originality and independence. However, they can be impulsive and unpredictable as well detached from others and their feelings. 

Minato might think without acting at times but he maintains his optimism, and it’s his loyalty and innovative thinking that gets him to be the village leader. Tomioka tends to be emotionless and does not waste time building bonds, but his independent nature gets the job done when slaying demons. And lastly, Tsuyu is a joy to be around and a pleasant surprise, even though it’s hard to tell what she might be thinking of next.

Pisces (February 19-March 20)

Tamaki Kotatsu – February 22 (Fire Force)
Light Yagami – February 28 (Death Note)
Panda – March 5 (Jujutsu Kaisen)

Pisces are known to be sensitive beyond all belief, and have so much compassion and intuition that they’ll help you selflessly. However, they tend to follow very idealistic thinking and keep info close to the chest, not realizing how detrimental it can be. 

Tamaki easily bonds with others whether they’re in the same company as her or from another company, but can often be overwhelmed with her emotions. Light Yagami’s highly perceptive nature leads him to great amounts of success but it’s his personal secret book that leads to his ultimate downfall. Panda-Chan is loved by all and never hesitates to help a friend in need, even if his humor doesn’t get him out of a sticky situation. 

And if you’re wondering…

Even if you’ve already seen all the titles listed under your Sun sign, check out your Moon and Rising signs as well for other titles.

Yours truly is a Libra and as luck would have it, I share a birthday with Kirito. Looks like I might need to check out Sword Art Online and give it a solid chance. If I’m not back in the next week, send snacks! I mean, send help, too, but mostly snacks!
