In its eight seasons, Game of Thrones has gifted viewers with a wide array of great characters.

    As Aries is one of the three Fire signs of the zodiac, it's only logical that a Targaryen takes the title. Ariens often take leadership roles, as Viserys attempts to do early on. However, the darker side of Aries can be power-hungry, egotistical, and competitive.

    They might become so single-minded in their goal to be number one that they'll do anything to get there. Symptoms may include selling one's sister in exchange for troops, attempting to take said sister's dragon eggs, and even threatening the life of her unborn child.

  • Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Tywin Lannister

    Tauruses are known for their steady work ethic. They understand that greatness requires both time and resources. Tywin Lannister is the logical head of the Lannister family, swooping in at the last minute with secret strategies, keeping his children in line, and ensuring they have the financial backing necessary to maintain their family power.

    On the other hand, like most Tauruses, Tywin can be stubborn and tight-fisted. Tauruses hate to see valuable time or money wasted on pursuits they deem frivolous. And fittingly, a Taurus always pays their debts.

  • Gemini (May 21 - June 20): Petyr Baelish

    Geminis are blessed with the gift of gab. With his sharp comebacks and one-liners, Petyr Baelish, AKA Littlefinger, has talked himself into and out of many prickly situations. But while Geminis have an undeniable charm and a clever mind that's always one step ahead, they can also be two-faced and restless in nature.

    As a self-proclaimed fan of chaos, Littlefinger exhibits both of these traits on the regular. He earned and betrayed the trust of half the Stark family and is always looking for the next title he can obtain.

  • Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Cersei Lannister

    Cancers are caretakers. They value home and family above all else, and protecting those close to them is their first priority. While "caring" might not be the first word associated with Cersei, she certainly demonstrates these traits towards her family, specifically her children.

    The downside of Cancer's close relationships is that they can become isolated and cliquey, creating an us-versus-them mentality. For Cersei, "us" is her children and Jamie, while "them" is quite literally the rest of the world. While fiercely protective, Cancers will often make decisions based on emotion or intuition rather than logic - like eliminating the entire Sept of Baelor with wildfire rather than standing trial.

    In Cersei's case, the three bottles of wine she drank might have influenced her, as well.
