The Twilight Character You Are Based On Your Zodiac Sign
The last Mercury retrograde of 2021 has finally come to an end, and what better way to celebrate than with more astrology? Following Netflix’s 2021 addition of “The Twilight Saga” to their streaming platform, the five-part vampire thriller series has seen a huge resurgence, as people sink their teeth into the rush of nostalgia. In fact, in July 2021 all five of the “Twilight” films were dominating Netflix’s most-watched list.
So, what is it about this supernatural romance that has kept us all so engrossed and asking for more, even after a decade? With an eccentric ensemble such as this one, viewers tend to pick their favorite and least favorite characters to identify with, based on their unique defining qualities. Have you ever wondered which character’s personality most closely resembles yours? Well, we’ve done the work for you, and now here is a list of the “Twilight” character you are, based on your zodiac sign.
Aries — Emmett Cullen and Sam Uley
It should come as no surprise that Emmett and Sam would most identify with the Aries zodiac sign, based on their competitive natures and need to be — for lack of a better phrase — the leader of the pack. Aries are bold, ambitious, and direct. They are very passionate, with the ultimate goal of being a leader for others. Emmett and Sam are the physically strongest members among their respective clans, each with an extremely competitive nature and a desire to be the best.
Sam’s abilities earned him the title of Alpha of the Uley pack, where his courageousness and ability to approach challenges with a level head came in handy. Although Emmett does not obtain supernatural powers like his siblings, throughout the saga, Emmett’s strength is revealed to be very formidable, even against the most powerful opponents.
Taurus — Edward Cullen
Tauruses are considered to be graceful, grounded, dependable earth signs. They are known to display immense patience and are typically seeking stability and value in their lives. Considering Edward Cullen’s 104 years spent wandering around the earth prior to meeting Bella, it’s safe to admit that he has more patience than most people.
Much like a Taurus, Edward might appear to be reserved on the surface, but is extremely stubborn and tenacious. Throughout the series, Edward grapples with the impending responsibility of changing Bella into a vampire and ultimately ridding his love of her soul and humanity in the process. His firm adamance against changing Bella manages to last a few years — and a few near-death experiences — but is ultimately unsuccessful, as a result of fate. Tauruses tend to be homebodies who enjoy the pleasures that life has to offer. They are creatures of habit, which can occasionally lead to them getting stuck inside their own comfort zone.
Gemini — Bella Swan
When considering the zodiac sign that Bella Swan would most closely embody, the thought that returns to the mind is of the duality of her character, as throughout the “Twilight” series she is being pulled between two different worlds. Comparable to Bella, many people consider Geminis to be masters of duality, some going so far as to say they have two personalities or can be “two-faced.”
It goes without saying that Bella was tangled in both the mortal and immortal worlds, as well as being split between the everlasting debate of Team Edward or Team Jacob; displaying a versatility and limitless curiosity akin to that of a Gemini. As a human, Bella had an unexplained immunity to the psychic abilities of vampires. Following her transformation, Bella managed to acquire the unique gift of a mental shield. A mental shield can block any psychic powers from affecting the person being shielded. Geminis are often associated with the mind, just like Bella’s mental shielding ability that originates from hers.
Cancer — Alice Cullen
Similar to that of a Cancer, Alice Cullen is known to be one of the most caring, nurturing, and emotional members of the Cullen family. Alice possesses the gift of subjective precognition, which allows her to predict future events, sometimes consciously. Cancers have a tendency to be very intuitive and skilled at sensing other people’s energies. Alice’s ability to foresee the future gives her a deeper understanding of the world, providing her with increased emotional awareness and intelligence.
A water sign ruled by the moon, Cancers can be described as comforting, caring, gentle, and compassionate. They prioritize a sense of security for themselves and those around them, embracing the role of the nurturer anytime they can. According to InStyle, Cancer and Taurus are considered to be one of the “most organically compatible pairings of the whole zodiac.” Edward and Alice share the deepest bond of the Cullen siblings. In 2020, Stephenie Meyer released a “Twilight” companion novel which delved into the original story from Edward’s point of view, called “Midnight Sun.” In the book, fans learned that Edward and Alice had discovered a way of communicating telepathically by combining their psychic powers, proving their impenetrable connection is unlike any other.
Leo — Rosalie Hale
Leos tend to be extremely confident, elegant, and self-empowered. In her human life, Rosalie was described as being beautiful, fiercely loyal, and dignified. Much like a Leo, Rosalie has always craved the spotlight, relishing in the effect she seemed to have on men, and the jealousy of women. Leos are considered to be passionate, theatrical, and bold; consistent with Rosalie’s self-proclaimed theatrics from her first marriage.
Leos are difficult to get along with at times, with their unapologetic confidence often perceived as self-centered or arrogant. Carlisle transformed Rosalie into a vampire with the intention of finding a soulmate for Edward, who had already been alone for so many years. Despite her beauty and radiance, however, Edward couldn’t seem to fall in love with her. Once Bella entered their world and managed to steal the full attention of Edward, it’s no wonder Rosalie detested her so much.
Virgo — Carlisle Cullen
Virgo signs are typically very logical, kind, and are considered pure spirits. They are referred to as the bearers of wisdom and light, which resonates with the generosity of Carlisle’s personality, both in his professional and personal life. Carlisle believes that every vampire’s strongest ability is enhanced during their transformation. When he was turned, Carlisle was gifted with the power of profound compassion, which has made it possible for him to maintain his “vegetarian” lifestyle, become a well-respected doctor, and possess the restraint to no longer be tempted by human blood.
“Twilight” author Stephenie Meyer explained in a 2006 interview that Carlisle’s “compassion-motivated self-control is really so incredible that it almost crosses the line into ‘superpower.'” Virgos are known to be perfectionists, detail-oriented, and efficient; always looking for the most practical and logical solution. Much like Carlisle, it is a Virgo’s natural predisposition to be a caregiver with the purest of intentions. This is displayed in the movie adaptation of “Eclipse,” when Carlisle and Esme attempt to take responsibility for a terrified, young newborn vampire named Bree Tanner, who was unwillingly changed to be a part of Victoria’s army. They would have happily accepted her into their family, if it weren’t for The Volturi.
Libra — Charlie Swan
Libras are logical and straightforward thinkers. They appreciate balance and harmony in life. The Libra sign is represented by the scales, similar to the scales of justice used in the legal system. As the Chief of Police in Forks, Charlie Swan is wholly concerned with maintaining peace and justice within their small town. Libras thrive within a healthy, stable environment and seek to create equilibrium in all areas of life. Much like Charlie, a Libra would prefer a life free of conflict, and finds great value in consistency.
Libra is a cardinal sign, which means they are known for forging their own path and initiating ideas. They are known for looking at the world in a dynamic way, considering multiple perspectives. But because of this, they tend to struggle with indecisiveness.
Scorpio — The Volturi
The Volturi are the most dominant and powerful vampire coven, consisting of five primary members that are responsible for enforcing the laws of the vampire world. Scorpios are known for their intensity in all endeavors. Much like Scorpios, The Volturi use their instinctual, mysterious nature in their quest for strength and power.
Known as the symbol of the scorpion, Scorpios are dark, observational, and renowned for their propensity towards dangerous. Aro, the proverbial leader of what has come to be considered the vampiric royal family, acquires the ability of tactile telepathy. This gives him the power to access every thought a person has ever had, simply by making physical contact with them. Scorpio is a water sign with strengths originating from the psyche, much like Aro’s gifts. At their core, Scorpios are emotional beings that tend to make decisions off their strong intuition, but they are also vengeful and refuse to tolerate duplicity.
Sagittarius — Jacob Black
Jacob Black perfectly represents a Sagittarius. A Sagittarius is outgoing, optimistic, and cannot keep its true emotions hidden for long — good or bad. His continuous pursuit of Bella’s affections is admirable, although ultimately unsuccessful. But, despite her union to his mortal enemy, Jacob’s loyalty to Bella never wavers, extending also to her daughter once she is born. Much like a Sagittarius, Jacob has a witty disposition, and a sense of humor that never fails to draw people in.
Bold, adventurous, and extroverted, Sagittarius signs pursue a greater understanding of the world around them, preferring to gain this knowledge through experience. Over the span of both the books and movies, Jacob’s personality evolves as he comes into his own as the Beta of the Quileute tribe. A weakness of Sags is often their aggressiveness and blunt honesty. Much like a Sagittarius, Jacob is fiercely loyal, assertive, and respected in his circle. Ruled by Jupiter, the planet of growth and abundance, it’s no surprise that these fire signs are seeking knowledge across the widest reaches of the world.
Capricorn — Jasper Hale
Capricorns are known to be loyal, responsible, and reserved on the surface unless you get close to one. Born in 1844, Jasper is the oldest of his siblings, and the second oldest in the Cullen family, only behind Carlisle. Because of this, Jasper has the characteristics of an “old soul” — similar to that of a Capricorn. A major identifier of Capricorns is their great sense of resilience and ability to overcome difficult obstacles in life. As a former major in the Confederate Army, Jasper spent a majority of his life surrounded by war and death. After being recruited to be a part of a newborn vampire army, this only amplified. Unfortunately, based on their steadfast focus and determination, Capricorns are sometimes misinterpreted as emotionless and detached.
While a Capricorn is ruled by the planet of structure, Jasper values this long-awaited stability with his soul mate, Alice. It has been said that Capricorns actually age backwards. According to Allure, Capricorns tend to become “increasingly youthful, optimistic, and playful as they mature.” It’s believed that neither Jasper nor Alice were complete until they found each other. When Jasper described his first encounter with Alice to Bella, he said, “For the first time in a century… I felt hope.”
This newfound faith in life acted as a rebirth for the pair of lovers. As a human, Jasper was skilled at the art of charisma. Once transformed into a vampire, this skill evolved into the power of pathokinesis, the ability to sense and influence the emotions of the people around him. According to Edward, whenever Jasper and Alice are together, Jasper elicits a sense of happiness so potent that it covers the entire house, impacting everyone in proximity.
Aquarius — Esme Cullen
An Aquarius is typically described as a humanitarian, aspiring to make the world a better place. They are open-minded, eccentric, and idealistic. Despite their sunny disposition, however, Aquarius signs possess a deep level of emotional intelligence. Esme Cullen is remembered as a warm, nurturing, and motherly presence in the Cullen family. During her human life, Esme lost a baby to lung fever, being left with excruciating grief and an unsatisfied need to be a mother. Upon her transformation to a vampire, Esme was gifted with a heightened sense of compassion and love for the people around her.
Fortunately for her and Carlisle, they would go on to form what would be considered the Olympic coven, giving Esme the capacity to be the natural caregiver she always yearned to be. Much like an Aquarius, Esme is optimistic, sensitive, and free-spirited. Esme is someone who is always open to experiencing new things, and knows how to handle hard situations, akin to that of an Aquarius.
Pisces — Renesmee Cullen
Pisces are known to be dreamy, sensitive, and deeply imaginative. Ruled by Neptune, the planet of inspiration and fantasy, they are compassionate at their core and attain an immense level of emotional awareness and empathy. Renesmee has shown a mindfulness to everything and everyone she comes into contact with. Much like a Pisces, she absorbs every experience in life — good and bad — to satiate a natural curiosity of the world around her.
Throughout the final installments of the series, Renesmee is revealed to be extremely intelligent, with an intellect far superior to that of a human. Renesmee was cognizant of the pain she was causing her mother in the womb and tried to prevent it, showing she understood her surroundings before she was even born. A vampire-human hybrid, Renesmee shares traits with both kinds, possessing many qualities that make it possible for her to blend in with human society.
However, the vampire part of Renesmee exhibits the same supernatural qualities of her vampire family, including heightened strength, speed, and senses. Renesmee was born with the powers of tactile thought projection and shield penetration. Shield penetration is the exact opposite of her mother’s power, making Renesmee the only vampire with the ability to successfully use her psychic powers on Bella. Conversely, tactile thought projection gives Renesmee the ability to project all her thoughts and memories into another person’s mind through physical contact. This power acts as the contrast to Edward’s power of mind reading from a distance. These powers coincide with a Pisces’ tendency to utilize every life experience as best they can.
