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 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 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 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 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.
