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.

At their worst, Leos crave one thing and one thing only: drama. Slapstick Jason (there's no better way to describe him) is truly the most melodramatic version of the character. Everything he does in Jason Lives would fit on the Broadway stage. He doesn't just come back to life - a bolt of lightning brings him back to life.

And he doesn't just chop someone up with a machete, he uses the severed arm of a machete-wielding camper to chop someone up. Jason's really feeling himself in this movie, which is why he's so representative of a Leo. This sign is nothing if not ready to cause a scene. Leos know the spotlight is on them when they walk into a room and they're not shy about it.

When Jason needed to be reinvented for the modern era, he wasn't just turned into some new lumbering psycho. Instead, he was reimagined as a backwoods survivalist with brain damage and a healthy dose of love for his mother. He was analytical and equipped to trap sexy teens instead of just chasing them through the woods for hours on end. 

Virgos are similar to Jason's rebooted incarnation. They're ruled by Mercury, which makes them a little flighty - or at the very least, hard to pin down - and they're incredibly analytical. When they're asked what they want for dinner, they'll take forever going through Yelp; when they're chasing down campers, they'll figure out how to ensnare them with as little work as possible.

Even though the audience doesn't get a lot of time to spend with the poor little lake-dwelling boy that is Jason Voorhees, it's clear he's a Libra. He's a sweetie, the world seems stacked against him, and most of all, he's a fighter. How else did he survive under Crystal Lake for so long?

Libras are some of the most gentle people that walk the Earth, but they'd rather sit at the bottom of a lake than make a decision. If anything in their life is unfair, they'll do whatever they can to balance it out, even if that means dragging some poor young woman to the bottom of a lake.

Jason Goes To Hell introduced the concept of Jason as an eternal entity rather than a singular person who's obsessed with mowing down teenagers. He's basically a weird-looking hell worm that travels from body to body so he can work his way back to a surviving Voorhees family member and birth himself anew. 

People are oddly drawn to this version of Jason - almost as if they can't control themselves around him. Like this version of Jason, Scorpios have an emotional power that's a bit mysterious. They're misunderstood and exert a lot of control over the people in their lives. Unlike this version of Jason, most Scorpios aren't a weird hell worm that passes from body to body.
