Aries (March 21 - April 19): Herkermer Homolka From 'Congo'

A pioneer, Aries are known to fight for their beliefs. Their signature move is to jump into the action without a second thought. This brashness can occasionally get them into trouble, but their bold pride is quick to correct any mistakes along the way. 

Herkermer Homolka makes textbook Aries moves as he impulsively funds an expedition deep into the Congo in a fatally flawed get-rich-quick scheme. Only Aries would think the best way to make a load of cash involves locating the so-called lost city of Zinj, which is protected by a subspecies of killer ape. Homolka only responds to direct communication, including when he should or shouldn't be eating sesame cake.

Quickly identified by a strong sense of loyalty and the pursuit of material comforts, Tauruses are hard workers. They may be a bit stubborn, but they like to provide for those close to them and bask in riches. 

Rooster Hannigan may be a con man and a no-good thief, but he's also quite loyal to the people in his inner circle. Hannigan remains true to his squad, as he's willing to do anything to make sure their lives are secure and safe.

The symbol for Gemini is that of the twin constellation; therefore, Geminis tend to veer in one direction, then quickly switch to another. They are social, versatile, and sometimes mischievous. In a less generous light, their duality might be perceived as misleading, but more often than not, they are genuinely charming. 

Dr. Frank-N-Furter is the poster child for Gemini. He can turn on a dime - while wearing heels - and just like a Gemini, he's usually up to something. Whether it's tricking Brad and Janet into becoming a part of his world or scientifically creating the ideal man merely for fun, Dr. Frank-N-Furter is a mischievous social leader. For Frank-N-Furter, switching personalities is as simple as a jump to the left and then a step to the right.

Cancers can come off as hardened and impenetrable, but in reality, they are emotional and often vulnerable. They possess a nurturing instinct, though they can become competitive when their emotions take control. They may be hard to approach, but once a Cancer lets someone in, that person is in for life. 

Long John Silver - the big, bad pirate of the high seas - may have a cutthroat attitude and thirst for gold, but he also has a soft spot for the impressionable Jim Hawkins. He delivered the curse of the black spot to a few of his foes, but when you're a professional pirate, taking out the enemy is nothing more than just doing your job. In the end, Silver elects not to shoot Jim Hawkins, and like a Cancer who has been cornered, that's really the best-case scenario.
