Your Literary Doppelgänger, Based on Your Zodiac Sign
Have you ever read a novel and seen yourself so clearly in a character that it was almost uncanny? Could be the stars. Here, your literary doppelgänger based on your zodiac sign.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18): Alice from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland
Normalcy? Nah, not interested. As an eccentric Aquarian, the only thing you hate more than standing still is being confined by rules. Like the titular character in Carroll’s classic, you’re a free spirit who’s always seeking an adventure, and never too uptight to try a suspicious cookie that says “Eat Me.” Just be careful not to fall down the rabbit hole, lady.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20): Anne Shirley from Anne of Green Gables
Creative, dreamy and imaginative, your openness and empathy are second to none, but your emotions can sometimes get the best of you…and turn you into a bit of a drama queen. Be honest: You wouldn’t have been so quick to forgive Gilbert for making fun of your red hair either.
Aries (March 21 – April 19): Arya Stark from A Game of Thrones
If something needs to be done, call an Aries. Like the young warrior known for her sword-fighting prowess and vengeance (that list though), you’re a skilled and spontaneous multitasker whose fast-paced lifestyle is tough for others to keep up with. Also like Arya, however, you can be a hair headstrong and impatient. (Hey, it’s not your fault you had to get behind the counter at Starbucks and make the latte yourself!)
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Katniss Everdeen from The Hunger Games
Determined and fiercely independent, Taurus gals are practical, persistent and smart in the battles they choose to fight. After all, Katniss isn’t, like, dying to enter the Games and is uncomfortable in the spotlight, but does it for the sake of her family. In other words, it’s totally natural for you to dread that work presentation…but know that you will crush it when push comes to shove.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s
The typical Gem is gentle, affectionate and curious…but also restless and suspicious of convention. Like the iconic Holly Golightly, you’re a social butterfly who’s a skilled conversationalist—but also harbors a darker, more introspective side. Your airy personality and indecisiveness can seem noncommittal, but overall you’re just a happy-go-lucky gal trying to have your cake and eat it too.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Bridget Jones from Bridget Jones’s Diary
You're highly sensitive and imaginative (cough, cough—fantasizing about your sexy boss) and vastly prefer sitting home in your jammies and guzzling wine to just about anything else. Sometimes moody, you're prone to the occasional bout of self-pity but can count on your close relationships to keep you grounded...and sometimes even get you out of your granny panties.
Leo (July 23 – August 22): Cleopatra from Antony and Cleopatra
You’re headstrong and ambitious, with a big, showy personality that occasionally comes across as arrogant. Umm, sound like a certain Egyptian queen? Like Cleo, you’re driven almost equally by your desire to be loved and your desire to be in control. And while you might not want to trick your husband into thinking you're dead in order to win him back, you should at least understand the power of a good cat-eye.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22): Hermione Granger from Harry Potter
J.K. Rowling’s bookish heroine is a textbook Virgo who, like you, is as practical as she is perfectionistic. Adept at problem-solving and analyzing every possible outcome (parsing Professor Umbridge’s speech in The Order of the Phoenix, anyone?), you’re also a major worrier who can obsess over the most minor details. Your pragmatism might read as negativity, but people keep you around to make difficult decisions and save them from their own impulsiveness.
Libra (September 23 – October 22): Snow White from Snow-White and the Seven Dwarfs
Known for your cooperative, positive nature, you tend to get along with everyone…including seven creepy men who make you clean their cottage while they go out mining. You thrive in a collaborative environment, though you’re probably also non-confrontational (which might make you vulnerable to outside influences…or poison apples).
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): Offred from The Handmaid’s Tale
Secretive, passionate and often misunderstood, Scorpios take themselves seriously and see it as their duty to make the world better. In Margaret Atwood's dystopian Gilead, Offred uses these traits to her advantage, keeping others in the dark about her plans while keeping herself motivated via sheer force of will. On the plus side, no one will ever question your ambition (or your ability to make a bonnet look fab).
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): Elizabeth Bennett from Pride and Prejudice
Your free-spirit nature might be mistaken as flightiness, but beneath the surface, Sagittarius ladies are women of grit who can’t be tamed. Remember when Lizzie calls out Mr. Darcy’s arrogance and then rejects his proposal? Total Sag move.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): Nancy Drew from the Nancy Drew Series
Competitive Capricorns are always on their A-game and up for a challenge…or a hidden staircase. Like the prolific 16-year-old detective, you’re practical, no-nonsense and hard-working. And like Nancy, you’d never let something as silly as a boyfriend (even Ned Nickerson) get in your way.
