Which Game Of Thrones House Do You Belong In, According To Your Zodiac Sign

Have you ever been on a first date and someone asks: “So, what’s your Game of Thrones house based on your zodiac sign?” Probably not, but it would be totally fine if someone did ask that question on a first date because who doesn’t want to talk about Game of Thrones? While you may be able to recap every single episode and talk about all the latest theories, do you actually know what Game of Thrones house you are based on your zodiac sign?

Admittedly, some Game of Thrones houses are more desirable than others. Everyone hopes to be House Stark or House Targaryen. Hell, even House Lannister is better than being House Frey or House Bolton. This is why it’s important to remember that even the ostensibly villainous houses do have some redeeming qualities. The Lannisters are ruthlessly ambitious, the Boltons supremely crafty, and the Freys hard workers.

Just like it can be fun to know which Avenger you are based on your zodiac sign, you can now know which Game of Thrones house you are based on your zodiac sign, and exactly how you’d play the game. Would you manipulate your way to the top like House Tyrell, or play the long game like House Stark? So, go on and find out which Game of Thrones house you are and bring it up on all your dates. Except if you’re House Bolton. Don’t bring that up on dates.


  • Aries (March 21 - April 19): House Targaryen

    Aries is the first sign of the zodiac and naturally they are obsessed with being, well, first. They are ambitious, determined, and optimistic. They often have seemingly impossible dreams that they always find a way to achieve through hard work and grit. While they may be brave, they are also aggressive, impulsive, and impatient. Sitting around and waiting for results is not really what an Aries does.

    Because of their leadership qualities and their fiery nature, Aries totally vibes with House Targaryen. The most prominent Targaryen on the show is Daenerys, who rides dragons, makes killer speeches, and burns down anything in her way - very much like the Aries. Going even further back, King Aegon I conquered and united the Seven Kingdoms, which had never been done before. The Targaryens may be stubborn but they accomplish anything they put their mind to, even if it seems impossible.

  • Taurus (April 20 - May 20): House Baratheon

    Taurus is reliable, devoted, and responsible. Taurus is also very much known for their stubborn nature, as they never forget or forgive an insult, rejection, or slight. They have a connection to the Earth and enjoy crafting with their hands. However, this connection to the Earth can make them a bit self-indulgent. Taurus will oversleep, over-drink, and overeat. If they aren’t careful, they can become complete gluttons.

    Taurus is House Baratheon without a doubt. Obviously King Robert Baratheon lived a fairly gluttonous life in terms of eating, drinking, and philandering. On top of that, Robert was stubborn as hell - he mourned the death of Lyanna Stark for years and refused to give his replacement wife Cersei a chance. While House Baratheon is believed to be mostly extinct, Gendry - Robert’s bastard son - is the one living Baratheon. Gendry embodies some of the most positive traits of Taurus, as he’s reliable, stable, and works with his hands.

  • Gemini (May 21 - June 20): House Tyrell

    Gemini is curious, friendly, and affectionate. They are a very sociable sign, usually furthering their careers through networking, connections, and charisma. However, Geminis can also be flighty, inconsistent, and nervous. Gemini is analogous to House Tyrell, as it was this friendly nature and social acumen that propelled them to such great power.

    Like a Gemini, members of House Tyrell were all extremely adaptable to their circumstances. Let no one forget that Margaery placed herself in the position to be queen by marrying Renly, Joffrey, and then Tommen. And obviously Olenna was the most versatile, flexible, and cunning player in the game. No one lives that long on Game of Thrones without being able to bend to circumstances.

    Unfortunately, House Tyrell is believed to be extinct following the Sack of Highgarden, but they played the game the same way a Gemini would: relying on their social skills.

  • Cancer (June 21 - July 22): House Frey

    Cancer is an extremely emotional Water sign. Because of their deep connection to their emotions, they are sympathetic, imaginative, and persuasive. However, they can also be insecure, moody, and manipulative. Because of that, Cancer is House Frey.

    House Frey sits on a bridge, which they charge others to cross. This toll resulted in great wealth for House Frey, but they were still looked down upon by other noble families. So yes, Walder Frey was known for being misogynistic, trading his daughters like livestock, and hosting the Red Wedding.

    But what led to this? Centuries of being look down upon. The final straw was Robb Stark’s rejection of his betrothal to a Frey, and subsequent marriage to Talisa. It wasn’t necessarily ambition that fueled Walder Frey’s sadistic actions; it was emotions and insecurity, which Cancer has a lot of.

  • Leo (July 23 - August 22): House Lannister

    Leo is a creative, passionate, and charismatic sign. People are drawn to them, which results in Leo feeling as though they should always be the center of attention. The flipside of this is that Leo can then be arrogant, self-centered, and inflexible. In both their happy moments and sad moments, they have a flair for drama.

    Leo is House Lannister. It’s not just because Leo is the lion and the Lannister sigil is also a lion, but that’s one obvious similarity. The Lannisters are one of the most dramatic families in all the Seven Kingdoms. We’ve all seen Cersei extract revenge on several different occasions and if she isn’t dramatic, who is?

    On top of that, the Lannisters are all wildly charismatic and creative. They can charm the pants right off someone when need be, and even when they aren’t putting on social polish, Lannisters still remain the most interesting people in any room. The Lannister aren’t just okay with everyone looking at them - they are hungry for it. It’s this level of ambition that propelled Cersei Lannsiter to the Iron Throne.

  • Virgo (August 23 - September 22): House Tarly

    Virgo is the hardest-working sign of the zodiac. They are analytical, practical, and shy. They avoid the spotlight, and they don’t work hard for applause or fame. Their work ethic comes from a belief that it’s simply what one does. Despite all this hard work, Virgo tends to feel disappointed with themselves. They are overly critical of themselves, and sometimes others as well.

    Virgo is House Tarly, who has been clearly shown to be hard-working and overly critical. House Tarly is a military family, who pride themselves on their bravery in battle. Because of their specific set of values, Randyll and Dickon refused to kneel to Daenerys, and were burned to death for their actions. Samwell Tarly’s work ethic is more intellectual than physical, which is why he and his father never saw eye to eye.

    While it may manifest in different forms, the Tarly House is full of hard workers, who don’t exactly lust for the spotlight.
