Which Character From 'Grease' Would You Be, According To Your Zodiac?

Do you find yourself hopelessly devoted to astrology but wish the signs were given a "Greased Lightning" makeover? Then you may be in luck, thanks to these Grease characters as zodiac signs.

Decades after its cinematic release, Grease is still considered one of the best movie musicals of all time. Despite dark stories behind the scenes of Grease, there's a lot to love, like the all-too-catchy songs or seeing what life was like in the '50s (from the perspective of the '70s). But perhaps best of all are the characters from Grease. We all know (or are) a Sandy, Danny, Rizzo, or Teen Angel. As it turns out, a Grease character goes together with each of the signs of the zodiac like rama-lama-lama-ka-dinga-da dinga-dong.

    At Rydell High, the Pink Ladies rule the school – and the leader of the leaders is Rizzo. She's as tough as they come and will not be bossed around. It's all the mark of the typical Aries, which also makes her incredibly stubborn. 

    Although Aries like Rizzo put up a strong front, like any ram, she still has a soft, vulnerable side behind her courageous facade. Rizzo shows this unguarded side of her Fire sign when she sings "There Are Worse Things I Could Do."

  • A Taurus at times may seem slow and steady, but really they're conserving their energy for what matters most. When they find a project or goal they're passionate about, they shift gears and throw everything they have into getting it done, making them the builders of the zodiac.

    This is not unlike shop teacher Mrs. Murdock, who at first seems like a typical uptight member of the faculty. But we later see that she's really been saving herself for the next big project: helping the T-Birds rebuild Greased Lightning.

    As the twin sign, Geminis are usually thought of as having two separate personalities. They make for interesting, charming friends, but their dual nature can also lead them to being fickle and indecisive.

    This is not unlike how Kenickie can quickly go from being affable to being angry, or how he goes back and forth about how he really feels about Rizzo. Kenickie is also a bit of a wordsmith (although he can be crude at points), another trait of this two-sided Air sign. 

  • Cancer (June 21 - July 22): Frenchy

    Cancers are known as sensitive souls who follow their feelings. They are also loyal and nurturing, doing anything to comfort a friend. These are also traits of Frenchy, who is the one Pink Lady who really tries to make Sandy feel comfortable at her new school.

    Frenchy follows her feelings, whether those feelings tell her to drop out of high school to attend beauty school, or vice versa. She is also hurt easily, like when Teen Angel suggests she would not get any salon clients unless said client "was a hooker!"
