In HBO’s “Game of Thrones” series, our heroines (and villains) are illustrated as flawed yet noble characters who embody human qualities. Understanding the parallels of these characters can help us understand ourselves. Similarly, astrological insight can help us recognize these human qualities so we can shift our circumstances. The better we understand ourselves, the more we can lean into our strengths and face challenges. To help guide you in this discovery, the following is a breakdown of your sign according to female “Game of Thrones” characters. Pay close attention to how you relate to your assigned character.
ARIES: ELLARIA & THE SAND SNAKES
March 21 to April 19
With a strong emphasis on battle, Ellaria Sand & the Sand Snakes embody the fiery edge of Aries. They each have a unique skill, which helps to offer a diverse approach to battle. Much like them, you are a versatile and passionate powerhouse who is dedicated to your mission and this carries you far. However, your Aries energy might cause you to lack the foresight necessary to fully actualize your goals. It’s important to develop your plans and have the patience to see them through. Otherwise, you’re likely to end up in hot water.
April 20 to May 20
Leaf is a child of the forest. She is wise and evokes trust from allies. She prefers to live amongst the creatures of the Earth and takes great delight in protecting her land. Like Leaf, the connection you have to Earth is deeply embedded in your personality. You are strong, steady, nurturing and pose an intuitive sense of Mother Nature’s gifts. You understand the importance of connecting with the world around you and this is where your power lies. Because you delight in the world of senses you must be careful not to engage in gluttony.
GEMINI: MARGAERY TYRELL
May 21 to June 20
Margaery plays the game of wits and knows how to work the system. Like a chameleon, she adapts to situations and meets her needs with ease. Essentially, she knows how to read a room! As a Gemini, you embody this clever and adaptable approach to life. Peaceful persuasion is one of your strongest abilities and you choose your words wisely. You are known as a mimicker who can wear many masks. Although this ability comes in handy, you must be careful not to use it to gratify selfish desires.
CANCER: ARYA STARK
June 21 to July 22
Arya seeks revenge for the wrongful deaths of her family members and will stop at nothing to punish responsible parties. Although she is generally good-natured, her murderous streak is a testament to her loyalty. Like Arya, you’re deeply connected to your loved ones and will protect them at any cost. Below the surface of your seemingly docile nature, there is an emotional intensity waiting for provocation. In other words, people better not mess with your fam. Your protective personality is admirable, but you must be careful not to assume attack. Otherwise, your defensive armor can lead to bridges burned.
LEO: DAENERYS TARGARYEN
July 23 to August 22
Daenerys is uncompromising in her vision and relentlessly pursues her leadership advancement. She is strong and always believes in herself and her people. Her moves are calculated, and she makes a formidable opponent, yet her need for control can cause outbursts when things don’t go as she planned. As a Leo, you share these qualities with Daenerys. Your willpower, vision and persistence help you accomplish great feats. Thus, you make an excellent leader amongst your peers and evoke greatness. Just be sure to remain true to your vision of equality. Otherwise, you might be prone to egoism and self-righteousness.
VIRGO: BRIENNE OF TARTH
August 23 to September 22
Brienne consistently demonstrates her loyalty, passion for servitude and intellect. Her duty is to ensure that her world is in working order and her people are protected. As the humble sort, she is not one to brag and revels in quality work rather than admiration. Much like Brienne, you equate your sense of fulfillment to a job well done. At work, people know that they can count on you for your loyalty and attention to detail. You may be the first in the office and the last to leave. This hard-working nature is a key component to your happiness. However, it’s important that you understand your own worth. Or else, others might try to take advantage of your dedication.
LIBRA: SANSA STARK
September 23 to October 22
We’ve watched Sansa Stark evolve from a girl obsessed with a “happy ending” to a political powerhouse. Although her desire for love prevails, the type of love has shifted. Settling for less than her worth is no longer in the cards. Likewise, you bask in the experience of a relationship and enjoy what it means to be a partner. While others might have difficulty in the art of compromise, you excel at it. This helps you to create long-lasting and mutually beneficial connections. As a result, you establish harmony wherever you go. The only drawback on this aspect is self-neglect. Remember, to build a healthy relationship you must meet your own needs first.
SCORPIO: CERSI LANNISTER
October 23 to November 21
Cersei may seem cruel and unusual. Cruel, yes, but unusual? No. Her actions are the direct result of the pain she has experienced and her emotional drive exists to counter this pain. Oh Scorpio, you and I both know the intensity of your emotional life. There’s no need to sugar coat it. This intensity is one that can manifest worlds of color or darkness. If you choose color, then the key is to understand and utilize this power – not ignore it. Simply put, you are meant to live intensely. Your intensity is your gift. If left unattended, you may be prone to unconscious resentment, manipulation and anger.
November 22 to December 21
Melisandre has a deep reservoir of faith in herself and her God. This faith helps feed an optimistic disposition – even in times of peril. Her optimism is infectious and encourages others to remain faithful as well. You possess a comparable commitment to your belief system, which helps you overcome difficult obstacles. Regardless of the situation, your ability to grow is linked to this inherently optimistic nature. Looking at the glass half full is a good thing, but it’s always beneficial to have discernment. Otherwise, you may be prone to overestimating your abilities.
CAPRICORN: OLENNA TYRELL
December 22 to January 19
Olenna possesses a great deal of wisdom, since she’s been through hell and back. Although some might be hardened by this, she uses it to fuel her sense of humor. If you’ve gotta be in hell you might as well laugh about it, right? As a Capricorn, you possess the same level of persistence and realism. You recognize that you have lofty goals and are ready to do the work necessary to achieve them. Quality results take time. This dedication is admirable and helps ensure that you will rise to the top. However, it’s important that you make time for balance. Your career is important, but so is your health.
January 20 to February 18
Ygritte has a mouth on her. She states her opinion bluntly and refuses to uphold social standards. She is fiercely independent and remains true to her goals. She is guarded in matters of the heart and values intellectual connection above all. Much like Ygritte, you speak your truth passionately and have a clear vision of your goals. You are more than willing to commit yourself fully and refuse to allow emotional ties to interfere. This helps you gain supporters from all walks of life. Although your objectivity helps to ensure you remain on task, it might cause you to neglect your emotional needs. Know that emotions are an important barometer. Cutting yourself off to them only inhibits your fundamental values.
February 19 to March 20
Missandei possesses a great deal of emotional intelligence, compassion, and desire for peace. She is filled with wisdom and is sensitive to cruelty. This earns her the title of the elusive, romantic and kind Pisces. You relate to her because you possess the same docile and peace-loving nature. You are the first to defend justice and strive to show others that war is not the answer. Rather, empathy and an understanding of Universal connectedness are the keys to a life well-lived. This nature affords you a gentle and loving disposition, which is admirable. Just be careful not to wear rose-colored glasses too often – not everyone is as good-natured as you.
