Written in the Stars: Character Astrology, Part 1

I’ll be the first to admit that I love astrology.

Do I truly believe in it? Uhhh… we’ll get back to that. Can your entire life and personality be boiled down to what a bunch of planets supposedly represent? No comment. Is it fun as heck to read about yourself and say, “Oh my God, that is so me,” to the vaguest descriptions? YES.

I know I’m not alone in that, which is probably why a common question I get about my characters is what’s their sign?

To all of those who have asked, I’m finally going to reveal the sun signs of my main characters! Of course, there’s more to astrology than sun signs (like moon signs, rising signs, etc.) but for the sake of my sanity, we gotta keep this simple.

In this post (Part 1) you’ll find the signs of the characters from The Fairytale Series (OUAONS, AN, Dryland, R&T) and All That is Gold. For my other stories and characters, check back in the future for Part 2!

Here we go!

First off, let’s have some astrology-themed music to set the mood.

Second of all, my source for the descriptions of the signs is from Cafe Astrology, which is great for those just starting out with this whole zodiac thing because it breaks things down in easy to understand ways. Is it the best source for astrology stuff? Ehhh. But it gets the point across! (Also, I used this resource to make the graphics)

And last, some of the character birthdays/signs are subject to change. Sometimes I forget about established timelines, y’all! Sometimes I gotta change things to get them to fit into the story! Sometimes I just say “who cares!!” and do what I want! You never know!

But, for the time being, here are the (current) signs of my (important) characters!

 

THE FAIRYTALE SERIES

taliana star sign new

TALIANA AVILLA

Birthday – April ?? (before the 19th)

Sun Sign – Aries

Sun Sign Key Words – active, initiating, leading, independent, aggressive, impatient, combative, energetic, pioneering, naive, assertive (Cafe Astrology)

Ah, Taliana. She’s a fire sign if I’ve ever met one, that’s for sure. Ready to argue or fight at the drop of a hat, this girl’s got Aries energy all over her and she’ll make sure you know it.

“Nothing gets Aries going more than a fresh slate, the promise of a new day, and a brand new start.”

sebastian star sign new

SEBASTIAN PHILLIPS

Birthday – August 23

Sun Sign – Leo/Virgo cusp

Sun Sign Key Words – (Leo) magnanimous, generous, hospitable, caring, warm, authoritative, active, open. (Virgo) analytical, intelligent, reserved, critical, helpful, conscientious. (Cafe Astrology)

Y’all can fight amongst yourselves as to whether or not you believe cusp signs are a “thing”, but in my little Fairytale World they are, and Sebby here was born right when Leo turns into Virgo, so he’s a little bit of both. He’s got the ego and loyalty of a Leo with the sense of responsibility of a Virgo.

“Loyal, and sometimes rather traditional, Leos are, after all, a fixed sign. They’ll hold on to situations and people for a very long time before they give up.”

“Virgos have a strong sense of responsibility. Even when they’ve convinced themselves to be irresponsible about something or the other, they worry about it.”

blair star sign new

BLAIR BAKHTIAR

Birthday – August 6

Sun Sign – Leo

Sun Sign Key Words – magnanimous, generous, hospitable, caring, warm, authoritative, active, open (Cafe Astrology)

My sweet girl is such a Leo, man. All that outward confidence while on the inside she’s dealing with so much crap, blaming herself for things that weren’t even her fault. And, of course, she has such a noble outward air and is 100% a Boss B*tch.

“Although on the surface, Leos appear rather confident, they can actually be some of the most humble souls around. They are the first to blame themselves when something goes wrong.”

zayn star sign new

ZAYN AL-HAYDAR

Birthday – October ?? (before the 22nd)

Sun Sign – Libra

Sun Sign Key Words – just, sociable, refined, accommodating, kind, fair, diplomatic, likable, indecisive, respectful, artistic (Cafe Astrology)

Zayn was a tough one to pin down. But considering he’s a future king, Libra seemed like a good fit for his diplomatic self.

“Society needs rules, and these rules attempt to bring justice, equality, and fairness. On an individual level, Libra represents these laws of civilization. Libra comes across as very civilized and rather refined.”

 

michael star sign new

MICHAEL RICHARDSON

Birthday – November ?? (before the 21st)

Sun Sign – Scorpio

Sun Sign Key Words – passionate, perceptive, resourceful, possessive, psychological, prowling, determined, probing, fixed, focused (Cafe Astrology)

Michael being a Scorpio was definitely an obvious one. His dark slyness, blatant sexuality, and resilience is big Scorpio energy.

“Scorpios simply never give up. They have tremendous staying power. They’re not in the slightest intimidated by anybody or anything. Confrontations are not a problem. In fact, talk to any Scorpio about their lives, and you’ll probably be in awe at all they’ve gone through.”

eva star sign new

EVANGELINE JOHNSON

Birthday – January ?? (before the 19th)

Sun Sign – Capricorn

Sun Sign Key Words – tenacious, conservative, resourceful, disciplined, wise, ambitious, prudent, constant (Cafe Astrology)

Eva knows what she wants for her future and isn’t going to let anything (or anyone) stand in her way. She’s definitely ambitious and wants to achieve things on her own merit.

“Capricorns want to do and be something worthwhile. They need to feel useful and effective in the real world in order to be satisfied with their lives.”

khalid star sign new

KHALID BAKHTIAR

Birthday – October ?? (after the 23rd)

Sun Sign – Scorpio

Sun Sign Key Words – passionate, perceptive, resourceful, possessive, psychological, prowling, determined, probing, fixed, focused (Cafe Astrology)

My sweet, troubled boy. He’s been through a lot, but he always bounces back, even if it takes a while.

“Trauma seems to follow them wherever they go. When Scorpio learns optimism, instead of expecting the worst, they’ll find that they possess amazing regenerative powers — the power to heal, create, and transform.”

rose stars sign new.png

ROSE THOMPSON

Birthday – September ?? (before the 22nd)

Sun Sign – Virgo

Sun Sign Key Words – analytical, intelligent, reserved, critical, helpful, conscientious (Cafe Astrology)

Another one of my hardworking ladies. She’s trying her best to thrive in a world that keeps dragging her down, but that Virgo energy keeps her going.

“Virgo people are generally respectable, hard-working individuals who have a love of knowledge and know-how.”

jude star sign new

JUDE PHILLIPS

Birthday – December 24

Sun Sign – Capricorn

Sun Sign Key Words – tenacious, resourceful, disciplined, wise, ambitious, prudent, constant (Cafe Astrology)

Jude’s my little Christmas Eve baby, which makes him a Capricorn. He may be a super energetic boy, but he’s also pretty wise—he’s always got a good piece of advice for everyone.

“Many Capricorns have mastered the art of making people laugh. Their sense of humor can be of the deadpan variety—they’re generally excellent at keeping a straight face. They can be bitingly sarcastic, too.”

marissa and vanessa star sign new

MARISSA & VANESSA AVILLA

Birthday – June ?? (before the 20th)

Sun Sign – Gemini

Sun Sign Key Words – talkative, mental, adaptable, flexible, changeable, responsive, sociable, superficial, versatile, inquisitive, witty (Cafe Astrology)

Is it super cliché to make the twins Geminis? Yeah? Well guess what, I don’t care!! Both of the twins are talkative, social people (Marissa a little more so than Vanessa) and they’re definitely witty in their own ways.

Marissa: “Their ability to adapt quickly to new situations generally gains them plenty of friends and social contacts.”

Vanessa: “Their ability to detach themselves can make Geminis very objective and observant, but a little difficult to get close to.”

 

marcus star sign new

MARCUS PATTERSON

Birthday – July 4

Sun Sign – Cancer

Sun Sign Key Words – gentle, conservative, feeling, nurturing, defensive, contemplative (Cafe Astrology)

He’s a little Independence Day baby! He’s a sensitive, caring boy, but he can also be a little snarky when the mood moves him.

“They are one of the more hospitable signs of the zodiac. Sure, they can be touchy and indirect, but they are also very dependable, caring souls.”

jacob star sign new

JACOB WESTON

Birthday – May ???

Sun Sign – Taurus

Sun Sign Key Words – persevering, down-to-earth, stable, stubborn, possessive, prosperous, dependable, physical, sensual (Cafe Astrology)

Jacob may come off as a bit lazy (and don’t get me wrong, he is) but he’s also very smart and hard working. Boy’s got a future at NASA after all.

“Although hard-working, their fixed and comfort-loving nature sometimes makes them appear lazy. This is only because they separate work and leisure so well.”

ALL THAT IS GOLD

 

quinn star sign new

QUINN BARTON

Birthday – December 6

Sun Sign – Sagittarius

Sun Sign Key Words – optimistic, restless, enthusiastic, adventurous, honest, irresponsible, outspoken, independent (Cafe Astrology)

Quinn is one of the few characters whose birthday is important to the story (and is directly mentioned in the text) so this one ain’t changing!! Our girl is definitely optimistic and wants to believe the best of people, even if that’s not the best choice in the end. And she’s definitely outspoken—mentally at least. She knows when to keep her mouth shut for the sake of her position in the world, but she certainly has the occasional slip up.

“Restless, cheerful, and friendly, Sun in Sagittarius people are generally on the go. They have a love of freedom, and a disdain for routine. Generally quite easygoing, Sagittarians make friends with people from all walks of life.”

carter star sign new

CARTER DUPONT

Birthday – January ?? (before the 19th)

Sun Sign – Capricorn

Sun Sign Key Words – tenacious, conservative, resourceful, disciplined, wise, ambitious, prudent, constant (Cafe Astrology)

What can I say about Carter Dupont that hasn’t already been said? The boy knows what he wants and he’ll do anything to get it.

“They are often a little reserved—even standoffish. This is generally because they value all things practical, and they’ll seldom wear their emotions on their sleeves.”

maddox star sign new

MADDOX WELLINGTON

Birthday – November 5

Sun Sign – Scorpio

Sun Sign Key Words – passionate, perceptive, resourceful, possessive, psychological, prowling, determined, probing, fixed, focused (Cafe Astrology)

Ah yes, yet another sensual Scorpio, you can never have enough of ’em, especially when you want a bit of a “bad boy”. Honestly, there was no other sign for Maddox, and he’s also another character who had their birthday mentioned within the story.

“Scorpio’s power can absolutely be of the “behind the scenes” variety, just as long as they have it.”

 

Hope you enjoyed Part 1 of the Character Astrology series! Do you agree with these assessments? Do you even believe in astrology? Let me know in the comments! And look out for the next batch of characters in Part 2!
