Which Cat From 'Cats' Would You Be, According To Your Zodiac Sign?

Since 1981, musical and feline fans alike haven't stopped quoting or singing songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber's Cats. The musical's pack of Jellicle cats are a wild bunch, and each one expresses unique feelings and thoughts as the action progresses through the night.

Deciding who will ascend to the Heaviside Layer is no easy task, especially when you're dealing with a bunch of opinionated cats. From Bombularina to Old Deuteronomy, each Jellicle brings something different to the table. The astral alignments have carved special paths for these crooning felines, and it's pretty obvious where each main Jellicle lands on the Sun sign chart.

In honor of the 2019 Cats movie, look below to see which Jellicle from the new adaptation you are based on your astrological sign.

  • As a cardinal Fire sign, Aries is independent and energetic. Fiery and full of life, Ariens are also stubborn and determined. The first sign of the zodiac, Ariens are natural leaders and athletes, ruling with their physiques. Aries is symbolized by the Ram and ruled by the planet Mars.

    Skimbleshanks is absolutely an Aries. Known as the Railway Cat, this adult orange tabby works aboard the Night Mail train. He's very prideful about his work, and isn't afraid to brag about his accomplishments. Like a true Aries, Skimbleshanks is always on the move. He's a cheerful Aries, dancing and interacting with the rest of the Jellicles. As an adult, he steps in and helps the kittens when needed with his straightforward, jovial attitude about life.

  • If you're a Taurus, a fixed Earth sign ruled by Venus, you are equal parts grounded and indulgent. Taureans love beautiful things and decadent foods, and sensuality is one of their defining traits. Symbolized by the Bull, this sign is considered possessive and inflexible, unwilling to compromise in its search for luxurious comfort.

    Bustopher Jones, the chubby tuxedo cat who spends his free time lunching at clubs, possesses the Taurean tendency toward extravagance. Dressed like a Edwardian gentleman and groomed to perfection, Bustopher is quite leisurely - and his size is a testament to this.

  • Gemini is a mutable Air sign, meaning those born under the sign are flexible, intellectual, fun-loving problem-solvers. Symbolized by the Twins, Gemini maintains a dual nature, oscillating between their sharp intellect and perplexing emotions. Ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, Geminis work out their issues by talking about them.

    The Gumbie Cat, Jennyanydots, sleeps by day and runs the Jellicle household by night. Like a Gemini, she may seem silly or distant upon first impression, but she's actually one of the most capable of the crew. While the rest of the cats sleep, she works away, using her curiosity and communication skills to keep rodents and insects in check.

  • Sensitive and intuitive, Cancer is a cardinal Water sign. Cancer's strength comes from their feelings, and they work hard to protect themselves from the outside world. It makes sense that Cancers are symbolized by the Crab and ruled by the Moon. Cancers crave nurturing, familial environments, and when they lack them, they become jaded and confused.

    Victoria, abandoned as a kitten, is a delicate youngster who roams the streets of London until she finds her way to the Jellicles. This Cancer cat wants, more than anything, a place to call home. Kind and gentle, Victoria is a welcome addition to the group.
