The best anime series out there are those with a huge and diverse cast of characters, who all have great chemistry together and help to create a whole universe. This also helps any viewer find a character they can identify with, and JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure is no different.
And when it comes to measuring and categorizing characters, there are all kinds of options, from Hogwarts house sorting to the Dungeons & Dragons moral alignment chart to astrology horoscopes and the Chinese zodiac. Today, it’s time to determine which JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure character best represents each sign of the horoscope, from Aries to Cancer and everything else in between.
12 Aries (March 21 – April 19): Narancia Ghirga
The list begins with Aries, a fire sign that is represented by the ram. Like a ram charging with its horns, an Aries person is bold and competitive, and they are perfectly willing to dive into any challenge or confrontation.
A number of JoJo characters are like that, but Narancia seems to fit that description best. He is eager for a fight and won’t back down, and if he’s on the back foot or made fun of, that just drives him to try even harder. Now that’s some fire.
11 Taurus (April 20 – May 20): Tomoko Higashikata
This lovely woman is Josuke’s mom, and she is a fine example of what a Taurus is supposed to be. She prefers the quiet life and dresses nicely, but she is tough and strong-willed if cornered. She won’t hesitate to wield a kitchen knife against a burglar.
As an earth sign, Taurus the bull represents a fondness for earthly pleasures and comforts, and these strong-willed people aren’t easy to sway or discourage. That sounds just like Tomoko.
10 Gemini (May 21 – June 20): Rohan Kishibe
Now it’s time for an air sign, the one and only Gemini. Represented by twins, this sign stands for anyone who is so busy with their projects and research, they need a second body to get all their work done.
Rohan, as a busy manga artist who loves research, fits this mold just fine. He’s not as scatter-brained as other Geminis, but his intense focus on work makes him a great Gemini for the most part.
9 Cancer (June 21 – July 22): Lisa Lisa
Cancer is a water sign, meaning it has mystic properties that the other signs can’t easily perceive. A Cancer’s attention is split 50/50 between the mystic and the material, and they are aloof, self-shielding people who slowly open themselves up to others. Like crabs, they are also willing to “pinch”, or be passive-aggressive.
Lisa Lisa was pretty aloof at first, but she is also kind and compassionate, once she gets used to someone. And like a true Cancer, she loves a good meal and a comfortable home.
8 Leo (July 23 – August 22): Joseph Joestar
There is no sign quite like Leo the lion, a fire sign. It’s easy to see what defines a Leo: they are extroverts who love attention and adoration. They are also the life of the party and passionate lovers.
No other character in this anime fits this description as well as Joseph Joestar, who is quite lively and makes a show out of absolutely everything. His emotions are strong, but he’s a nice guy, not a bully.
7 Virgo (August 23 – September 22): Caesar Zeppeli
It’s time for another earth sign, and in this case, it’s Virgo, a sign represented by the goddess of wheat and agriculture. Overall, a Virgo is known for being diligent and systematic, using a calculated approach to their hard work. They’re not unlike water signs, but they have the stubborn strength of earth signs.
Caesar Zeppeli has spent a long time honing his Hamon (Ripple) power, and the fruits of his labor are formidable. He’s not brash or impulsive like Joseph. Instead, he’s methodical and deliberate, a perfect Virgo.
6 Libra (September 23 – October 22): Mohammed Avdol
Despite wielding Magician’s Red, a fire-based stand, Avdol’s personality better matches the air sign of Libra. A Libra is symbolized by a set of scales since these people strive for balance and harmony in the world around them.
Avdol is easy to get along with and cares for all the people around him, and he’s capable of self-sacrifice, too. Libras are also known for their refined tastes and sense of decor, and Avdol’s outfit is certainly stylish.
5 Scorpio (October 23 – November 21): Dio Brando
The water sign known as Scorpio is not innately evil (none of these signs are), but Scorpio’s attributes make it the typical sign of fictional villains. A Scorpio is cunning and patient, and they wait for the right moment to strike.
In Phantom Blood, Dio Brando was a fine Scorpio, scheming the downfall of the esteemed Joestar family and striking when the moment was right. The fate of George Joestar and the family mansion are a testament to Dio’s Scorpio ways.
4 Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21): Mikitaka Hazekura
Next up is another fire sign, the archer known as Sagittarius. Any Sagittarius is willing to launch themselves into a new journey to learn new things and have new experiences, like firing flaming arrows in all directions.
This describes the (maybe) alien known as Mikitaka Hazekura, who wants to explore Morioh and see everything that he can. A Sagittarius is also known for being lively at parties and sharing stories of their adventures.
3 Capricorn (December 22 – January 19): Jonathan Joestar
This is the third and final earth sign of the horoscope, which is represented by a sea-goat. Like Taurus, a Capricorn is stubborn and strong-willed, and like Virgos, they are diligent and hard-working. They don’t let anything stop them.
Jonathan Joestar is tough and draws strength from within, just like a Capricorn, and he has a natural go-getter attitude that perfectly fits this sign. No one else could be a Capricorn like him.
2 Aquarius (January 20 – February 18): Giorno Giovanna
Don’t be fooled by the name. An Aquarius is actually an air sign, like Libra and Gemini, and it is a rebel at heart. Any Aquarius believes in altruism and the power of the people, as opposed to being self-absorbed, like a Cancer or Taurus.
Giorno is just like that, since he wishes to free Italy from the cruel crime families there and create a better world for them all. He works well in a team, too, like any Aquarius would.
1 Pisces (February 19 – March 20): Jean-Pierre Polnareff
This water sign is tricky to define and describe, but to put it simply, a Pisces is highly sensitive to the lessons, joys, and pains that other people have experienced. They are a creative and imaginative person, too.
Polnareff is quite sympathetic to others, and he has learned much from fighting with Jotaro and the gang. He also learned about the true depths of the Stand Arrow, and was quick to share this knowledge with Giorno’s group.
