Horror movies wouldn’t be horror movies without a good villain that you love to hate! While we can all acknowledge that these fictional characters are “the bad guys” of their stories it can still be fun to examine them through a different lens and try to understand them on a deeper level. Who knows, you may even relate to some on an astrological level.

Not long ago, we examined which Final Girls represented the various signs of the Zodiac, but have you ever wondered which horror villain best represents you and your celestial path? Find out which horror villain you are based on your zodiac sign below!

 

ARIES “THE RAM” (FIRE SIGN)
MARCH 21 – April 19

Child's Play 1988 -chucky doll crazy

Chucky Childs Play

They say that Aries’ are children at heart so I suppose it only makes sense that everybody’s favorite knife-wielding doll would be one too! Chucky is a maniacal serial killer formerly known as Charles Lee Ray who transferred his soul into the body of a Good Guy Doll in hopes of evading capture by the police.

Like Chucky, Aries are known to have rather fiery personalities and can be quick to anger, but also just as eager to laugh which we see through all of his diabolical shenanigans and schemes. Life will throw a lot of obstacles your way, but if there is one thing an Aries won’t do it’s give up. Chucky never stops going for his goals and you shouldn’t either! You are a bold, independent, and ambitious Aries who does not take no for an answer. Keep up that daring enthusiasm and zest for life and you too may just find your friend till the end!

 

TAURUS ”THE BULL” (EARTH SIGN)
April 20 – May 20

Jason Voorhees- Friday the 13th

Taurus’ are incredibly hardworking individuals who are stubborn as a bull and that could not be more true of Camp Crystal Lake’s longest-running camper, Jason Voorhees. Much like Jason you are fiercely loyal to those you love. When Mother says jump you say how high and when Mother tells you to ki ki ki ma ma ma well- then you’re damn sure going to do it.

You deeply value having a sense of security and stability in life and thrive in long-term relationships. These needs for comfort can hinder you at times as you are very resistant to change. However, change is necessary for growth and no one has grown quite as much over the course of twelve movies as Jason. You invest yourself entirely into what you believe in and will not rest until get everything you want in life.

 

GEMINI ”THE TWINS” (AIR SIGN)
May 21 – June 21

Pennywise It

Geminis are quick-witted intellectuals who look at life through a lens of never-ending curiosity. When one approach to a situation doesn’t work, Geminis will easily adapt to those around them in order to achieve their goals. The shapeshifting clown Pennywise studies his opponents and learns absolutely everything he can about them and uses their greatest fears against them.

Like Pennywise you are a master communicator and know just the right things to say to get under someone’s skin if need be. You are a very excitable person and that can sometimes get the best of you, but if you stay focused on the task at hand and rely on your logical brain instead of your emotional brain you will come out on top! Literally. You’ll float!

 

CANCER “THE CRAB” (WATER SIGN)
June 22 – July 22

psycho-3

Norman Bates Psycho

In the words of Norman himself, “We all go a little mad sometimes.Norman Bates is the true definition of a Cancer. He is a deeply emotional person who struggles with his mood and temperament from time to time, but wears his heart on his sleeve and is very sensitive to others’ feelings. Like Norman, you may try to present as having a tougher exterior when really on the inside you’re a softy.

Cancers tend to be very nurturing people who value domesticity, family, and stability. Norman takes on all those responsibilities and more as he runs the Bates Motel and keeps up appearances that he cares for his ailing mother. However, like most Cancer Norman is very receptive to other people’s energies so beware because if Mother is having a bad day then you probably will too.

 

LEO ”THE LION” (FIRE)
July 23 – August 22

Candyman Candyman

What happens when you say Leo in the mirror five times? Probably nothing, but that doesn’t mean Candyman can’t still come to the party! Leos tend to be very creative and romantic people with a flair for the dramatic and that is the very essence of who Candyman is. The way he speaks, the way he dresses, and the way he carries himself demand that all eyes be on him.

Much like Candyman and his legacy, Leos strive to make a difference in the world and enjoy being recognized or remembered for their contributions to society. You radiate confidence and stand out in a crowd, but you can often allow pride to be your downfall. Avoid confidence coming off as cockiness or arrogance and you may just find the victim you have been waiting centuries for.

 

VIRGO ”THE VIRGIN” (EARTH SIGN)
August 23 – September 22

Michael Myers – Halloween

Probably one of the most well-known and recognizable horror villains out there, Michael Myers is a Virgo through and through. As natural-born problem solvers, Virgos tend to be very practical and methodical when it comes to accomplishing goals they have set in place for themselves. They are very analytical and hardworking people who do not know the meaning of the word “quit”.

Michael Myers is a machine who destroys anything and everything in his path with a degree of consistency and perfectionism that boils over into the realm of obsession. Virgo create order out of chaos and there is nothing but chaos surrounding Michael Myers. Don’t lose that tenacious spirit, but also learn to live a little! After all Halloween comes only once a year!

 

LIBRA ”THE SCALES” (AIR SIGN)
September 23 – October 23

Hellraiser 30th anniversary

Pinhead Hellraiser

Never has there been a better representation of a Libra than that of Cenobite leader, Pinhead. Known for their social and diplomatic ways Libras have a remarkable ability to communicate their thoughts clearly and thoughtfully while also constantly negotiating with those around them.

Pinhead surrounds himself with the things he loves and carries himself with a sense of importance that is hard not to envy. He has a taste for beauty, luxury, and pleasure in his own way and will stop at nothing to obtain the things he feels he deserves. Fairness is very important to him and failure to comply with his wishes can be devastating. You would NOT believe all of the sights he has to show you!

 

SCORPIO ”THE SCORPION” (WATER SIGN)
October 24 – November 21

fred krueger a nightmare on elm street 3 dream warriors

Freddy Kreuger A Nightmare on Elm Street

Scorpios are intense, passionate, and cunning people with powerful emotions and lots of energy. Freddy Krueger is all of those things and more as he navigates the dream world like a game for his own personal amusement. He is unrelenting in getting what he wants and he will be as dominating or overpowering as he needs to be to do it.

Much like Freddy Kreuger, Scorpios can enchant a crowd with their big personalities and enticing auras. It is very easy for you to be the center of attention as people naturally gravitate toward your energy. However, sometimes that can be a bit too much for you and you may need to take a nap to recharge. Don’t worry it’s only sleep, what’s the worst that could happen….

 

SAGITTARIUS ”THE ARCHER” (FIRE SIGN)
November 22 – December 21

Leprechaun Leprechaun

Supposedly Sagittarius are naturally lucky people so it seems only right that Leprechaun would also be one! Sagittarius are adventurous, spontaneous, optimistic people who are gifted with a cheery and welcoming disposition. A lot like Leprechaun you crave expansion and exploration and are always looking for the next best thing. Routine gets old fast and it’s important to keep yourself on your toes.

Leprechaun lacks focus like most Sagittarius and often gets distracted in his hunt for the missing gold when something else new and shiny comes along. You can be restless at times and have a fear of commitment, but you also have a taste for the finer things in life so you take your responsibilities seriously. You refuse to be held back or stuck in the same place so go out and find your gold coins and may the luck of the Irish be with you!


HOT AT THE SHOP


 

CAPRICORN “THE GOAT” (EARTH SIGN)
December 22 – January 19

Hannibal Lecter The Silence of the Lambs

Hannibal Lecter is a tried and true Capricorn from top to bottom. Like Hannibal Lecter, Capricorns are ambitious, reserved, patient, and especially hard-working. No amount of work is too much if it means perfection is the end result. You are incredibly career driven and aim to always be financially stable. However, your discipline and determination can boil over to the point of austerity.


HOT AT THE SHOP


Much like Hannibal Lecter you try to remain practical in all situations to the point of apathy and that is often a way to protect yourself from how you really feel on the inside. Take a page out of Dr. Lecter’s book and try to sit back and relax with some fava beans and a nice glass of Chianti!

 

AQUARIUS “THE WATER BEARER” (AIR SIGN)
January 20 – February 18

jigsaw movie review

Jigsaw (John Kramer) Saw

Aquarius are humanitarians who are hungry for knowledge in order to better establish a firm understanding of the way the world works around them. John Kramer or Jigsaw is faced with a terminal illness that completely wipes out his faith in humanity and hopes for a better future. He takes it upon himself to explore new concepts of what it truly means to “be alive” and if one life is more precious than another.

Jigsaw is incredibly contemplative as well as innovative when it comes to how he processes information, but once he is set in his ways it is hard to make him see things any differently. Aquarius are very deep thinkers and it’s important to keep an open mind so you do not become too stubborn or set in your ways. Now, do you want to play a game???

 

PISCES “THE FISH” (WATER SIGN)
February 19 – March 20

Leatherface The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Pisces are known to be imaginative, compassionate, and gentle souls who are highly empathetic. Naturally, Leatherface embodies many of the qualities that make a Pisces unique. He is very emotional and sensitive when on his own, but can ramp it up to one hundred when he feels himself or his family is threatened.

Much like Leatherface Pisces’ can be easily overwhelmed or impressionable in their desire to please people. They almost always put the needs of others before their own and do not complain when things get tough. They are often described as old souls and are deeply inspired by the beauty of the world around them. Now go out and do a chainsaw dance in the sunset! You deserve it!
