The Vampire Diaries became immensely popular, and it can thank for its success to its rich parade of characters, both heroes and villains. Some of them were more sympathetic, others less, but they all made the show fun to watch. Over its course, many vampires, werewolves, other creatures, and, of course, humans showed what they can do and how far are willing to go. Considering how much we know about the show’s heroes, it’s easy to determine what their defining characteristics are.
The Vampire Diaries is now over but if you’d like to find out which hero you are based on your Zodiac sign, let’s take a look at 12 characters and their Zodiacs.
12Aries: March 21 – April 19 – Elijah
Elijah was one of the noblest characters among vampires and his character traits make him a possible Aries. People born in this sign are known for being compassionate, determined, and driven. No matter how many times Klaus hurt him, Elijah was determined to stay at his brother’s side. He also showed compassion for people, creating a clear contrast with his more ruthless siblings. He even asked Klaus to spare Katherine’s life, even though he knew he wouldn’t succeed.
11Taurus: April 20 – May 20 – Klaus
Klaus has done both heinous deeds and good ones throughout his journey but he can be best characterized by one word: persistent, which would make him a clear Taurus. The defining trait of this sign is its resilience and persistence. Klaus has lived for over a thousand years and he’s able to pursue his goals until he reaches them, no matter how long it takes. People born in this sign also like to hold grudges sometimes, and no other character in the show is as good at holding grudges as Klaus is.
10Gemini: May 21 – June 20 – Damon
Damon is a Gemini and he fits his Zodiac sign to the last letter. Geminis are charming, clever, and outgoing. Damon enjoys the attention of other people (especially beautiful women), he’s able to charm almost everyone and his cleverness showed multiple times when he plotted against his enemies. Just remember the time he killed Lexi to prove that he wasn’t a vampire. Finally, Geminis often have a sense of humor, and Damon is known for his witty remarks.
9Cancer: June 21 – July 22 – Elena
Elena is a Cancer. People born in this sign are often loyal, protective, and clever. Elena is fiercely loyal to her friends and family and she would die for them, in fact, she did die for them in the show.
She tends to protect those close to her, no matter if she might get hurt in the process. She’s also clever when it comes to finding solutions to unexpected problems, such as when she tricked Damon and Stefan when they tried to torture her.
8Leo: July 23 – August 22 – Vicki
Vicki was born in the sign of Leo. She was somewhat a conflicted character but always tried to stand up for herself. Leos are confident in what they’re doing or at least seem that way most of the time, a trait Vicki adopted for herself even when she was confused or hurt. They can be a bit hot-headed sometimes which can lead to making bad decisions, such as when Vicki decided to attack Elena and was killed in the fight.
7Virgo: August 23 – September 22 – Tyler
Tyler wasn’t as popular among fans as other heroes, but that doesn’t mean he was a bad guy. Tyler best fits the traits of a Virgo. People with this sign have a dominant personality, are perfectionists, are sometimes a bit arrogant, and are independent. Tyler wanted to be the best at everything, he was outgoing and confident, and he also didn’t want to serve others. That’s why he took it so badly when Klaus changed him into a hybrid.
6Libra: September 23 – October 22 – Caroline
Caroline is a Libra. Libras are known for being charming, strong-willed, and well-balanced. Caroline was a bit of mess as a human but once she became a vampire, she also turned more balanced and decided to make her life count for something. She’s very charming and active in her community, has the ability to make friends quite easily and when she wants something, she doesn’t give up, showing her strong will.
5Scorpio: October 23 – November 21 – Stefan
Stefan’s character traits make him a Scorpio. Scorpios are highly motivated to achieve their goals, and once Stefan sets his mind to something, he won’t budge until he succeeds. Like when he decided to bring Klaus down, no matter what, and even went as far as to kidnap Elena.
Because of their persistence, Scorpios can sometimes seem hot-headed, and Stefan does struggle with controlling his behavior from time to time, especially when he turns his emotion off and turns into an evil version of himself, the Ripper.
4Sagittarius: November 22 – December 21 – Jenna
Jenna hasn’t been in the show that long but she could be a Sagittarius. People in this sign are heroic, noble, kind, selfless, but can also be stubborn. Jenna demonstrated all of the above-mentioned traits when she took on the challenge of raising two teenagers after Elena’s and Jeremy’s parents died. She was always there for them when they needed her but also was stubborn enough to call Jeremy out on his bad behavior.
3Capricorn: December 22 – January 19 – Liz
Liz could very well be a Capricorn, considering her journey in the show. Capricorns are often hard-working individuals, driven and determined to reach their goals. They can be sometimes so focused on their job that it’s hard to connect with them. Liz was very passionate about her job as a policewoman, so much she didn’t spend much time with Caroline, but she still had a warm heart, like Capricorns also do.
2Aquarius: January 20 – February 18 – Bonnie
Bonnie is an Aquarius. She likes to keep to herself, she’s not as outspoken as Caroline, since people born in this sign value their privacy. However, they’re also known for their kindness, a trait Bonnie demonstrated multiple times when she helped her friends and people in need. People born in this sign usually don’t have too many friends and their trust is hard to gain, but they’re very loyal to the friends they have, as Bonnie is.
1Pisces: February 19 – March 20 – Matt
Matt is a Pisces and he behaved in a way typical for his sign many times. Pisces are known for sometimes caring too much about people. Matt showed the caring side of his multiple times, not just when he tried to take care of his sister Vicki but also by helping Elena to get through her first days as a vampire. People born in this sign are empathetic, feel strongly for others, are amiable and loved by many, just like Matt, who has many friends and not so many enemies.
