Jason Voorhees has gone through many permutations. With 12 movies in the Friday the 13th franchise, he not only has plenty of slayings under his belt, but he’s been represented in a wide variety of styles and personalities. Each of these different versions of Jason Voorhees matches characteristics found in the zodiac, and they can tell you a little something about yourself. 

Do you find that you can be flighty? Or that you’re a traditionalist with a knack for getting things done? Then you’ll see a bit of yourself in one of these versions of Jason. Any similarity you might find in yourself to Jason doesn’t mean that you’re a stone-cold, hockey-mask-wearing monster - but maybe now you’ll at least understand where he’s coming from.

There's no getting around it: Jason Voorhees is aggressive. No matter which version of the mask-clad slasher is on screen, there's going to be a body count. However, the version of Jason with the most energy and go-get-em drive is that of Friday the 13 Part VII: The New Blood. In this film, Jason offs 15 people in 85 minutes, and at one point, a character ends up on the business end of a party horn.

This Jason is not messing around. He's competitive and impatient, and just like an Aries, he's got a drive that's unstoppable - until he comes across a teenage girl with telekinetic powers.

Even though Jason hadn't yet come into his own as a horror institution at this point (he lacks the hockey mask), he's no less dangerous in Friday the 13th Part 2. Jason's out to prove something to his mother, whom he still hears even though she's just a head in his ramshackle cabin. 

In this film, Camp Crystal Lake is full of intelligent young people who should be able to escape from this overall-wearing slayer, but he's persistent and determined - classic Taurus. He doesn't let anyone stop him - even when wannabe child psychologist Ginny Field uses his own mother's memory against him.

Friday The 13th V: A New Beginning proves you don't have to be a Voorhees to be a Jason - all you need is a hockey mask, a machete, and a deep hatred for camp counselors. The Jason of this movie is actually Roy Burns, a man who's mentally in conflict with himself. After seeing his son's lifeless body, he loses his mind and goes full madman. 

Not all Geminis are prone to going wild and chopping up a bunch of campers, but they are ruled by Mercury, and as such, have two dueling personalities inside them at all times. They can change their minds at the drop of a hat and they're moody to a fault.

If Jason is anything, he's a mama's boy. Throughout the Friday the 13th series, he's pushed toward homicide because of his attachment to his mother. He's overly sensitive to anyone with a bad word to say about her, and in Freddy vs. Jason, his feelings are controlled by Freddy Krueger.

It's clear that this version of Jason is a Cancer. Not only is he extremely emotional, but he's so sensitive when it comes to his personal life that he acts out every time Krueger pushes him to do anything. The best thing you can say about Freddy vs. Jason's version of the monster is that, like a Cancer, he's "complex."
