What British Royal Matches Your Zodiac Sign?

As iconic as their personalities are, it should come as no surprise that each zodiac sign can correspond to a specific British royal with similar personalities and traits. So, from Aries to Pisces and everything in between, specific zodiac signs have a soul sister or brother in a British royal who is just like them - even if they weren't necessarily born under the same stars.

Zodiac signs are the basis of astrology, or the study of how planetary and star movements impact the human world. Since planets and stars tend to move in patterns, people who are born at a certain time of the year will have a particular set of celestial entities associated with their birthday. Astrologers believe that the positioning of the stars and planets at the time of a person’s birth has a direct impact on who they are. Believers insist that zodiac signs can explain an individual’s personality, beliefs, behaviors, and relationships. Each of the 12 zodiac signs correspond to a time of the year and certain qualities a person will possess when they are born under that sign.

Like the zodiacs of US presidents, royal family astrology and monarchs' zodiacs offer a way to find similarities between royal personalities and zodiac signs - like Henry VIII's astrological chart revealing him to be tempestuous or Elizabeth I's zodiac chart explaining her "Virgin Queen" origin story. From warlike rulers to royal siblings who craved the spotlight, English and Scottish royals share traits with each of the zodiac signs.
