Which Keanu Reeves Character Are You Based On Your Zodiac?

Keanu Reeves is one of the most enigmatic (and possibly oldest) actors in Hollywood. Though he prefers to keep himself to himself, he's been known to really come alive during interviews to reveal more of his eccentric self. True to life, the characters Keanu has played over the years have varied from poker-faced antiheroes and villains, to goofy teenagers, to intense men of action. And like his roles, the ideal Keanu Reeves characters for each zodiac sign are incredibly nuanced. 

As well as helping you define your personality traits, strengths, and weaknesses, your astrological star sign can also be used to connect you to others that share your sign - including fictional characters, like those in the MCU. So, do you think you're a the "chosen one" like Neo or married to the waves like Johnny Utah? It's time to find out which Keanu Reeves character you would be based on your sign.

  • Aries (March 21 - April 19) is an adventurer's sign. Symbolized by the ram and synonymous with the Greek god of war, they are restless types who enjoy taking on a challenge with confidence and optimism. Brave and energetic, the only downside to an Aries is their extra energy can make them jittery and veer towards rash decision-making. Still, it's hard not to be impressed by them, just like Speed's Jack Traven, the gutsy LAPD officer who - along with Annie Porter (Sandra Bullock) - rescues a busload of people from an explosive end.

  • Taurus (April 20 - May 20) is the sign of stability. Represented by the bull, those born under Taurus know how to stand their ground with down-to-earth thinking and resolute strength. Because of this, they don't do well with abrupt changes and have a hard time letting go of things to which they become attached. Because of this stability and devotion, Klaatu - the poker-faced alien from the 2008 The Day The Earth Stood Still remake - has the closest affinity to the sign. 

  • Gemini (May 21 - June 20) people are curious types. Represented by twins, what unites the two halves is innate curiosity and an appetite to learn. Those born under this sign are usually content with something good to read or watch. They can also suffer from loneliness and can become compelled to seek the things they feel are missing in their lives. Keanu Reeves's turn as Jonathan Harker in Bram Stoker's Dracula is a prime example of this sign's behavior; the bookish man who becomes fascinated and later split by the Count's curse is clearly a Gemini.

    Cancer (June 21 - July 22) is the sign of strong emotion. Those born under this sign can be confident, ambitious, and sensitive to the feelings of others, but they can also be brooding and paranoid. Cancer-born people put family first and would rather enjoy a quiet night at home in the company of those they love than anything else. Because of these strong attachments and volatile tendencies, Keanu Reeves's eponymous assassin - who does it all for his favorite canine friend - is the best match for the sign.
