One of the best female-driven shows in recent memory, Gilmore Girls elicited strong feelings from viewers when it aired, and even now, more than 10 years past its series finale! With the release of the TV revival on Netflix just a couple years ago, Gilmore Girls fans are still divided on many issues and have since questioned some of the show’s more dated plotlines and scenes.
While the revival provided us with answers to many questions – Rory was with a new man, but still seeing Logan on the sly; Lorelai and Luke never had kids, and didn’t get married until the last moment; Lane still plays in a band with husband Zack, but isn’t a famous rock star; Mr. Kim does exist – it didn’t answer some that were the most important, like what character corresponds to your sign!
We’ve looked at the starring and recurring characters of the beloved TV series to discover which character represents the sign best. Rory, with a birthdate of October 8, may have been a Libra on the show, but does that fit her personality? Lorelai, born on April 25, was technically a Taurus, but does she seem like one? With help from the stars and a Netflix binge, we’ve got the answers to what you’re really looking for.
Earth: Michel Gerard
Earth signs are known to be some of the most stubborn and immovable. They like things done a certain way for a certain reason and are rarely willing to compromise. They’re also kind of snobby! For these reasons, temperamental French concierge of the Independence and Dragonfly Inns Michel Gerard is the perfect Earth sign!
Not only is Michel one to openly display his disdain for others (a very Capricorn trait) but his fussiness about the exact number of blueberries in his pancakes is also very Virgo!
And that stubbornness that belies a warmth underneath? All Taurus.
Virgo: Emily Gilmore
A character who perhaps you couldn’t stand when you were younger but to whom you relate more now is definitely Emily Gilmore, who is a Virgo to a T. Always the perfect hostess, Emily has an eye for detail and the finer things in life, but she has zero time for inefficiency. How else do you explain all those maids she cycled through over the seasons? Hypercritical like a Virgo tends to be, Emily is also hypersensitive to criticism about herself – likely because that criticism speaks to long-held fears she already has. Dedicated to her family and her work with the DAR (for a while, at least), Emily is a total Virgo!
Capricorn: Paris Geller
Has there ever been a character who has been the physical embodiment of ambition in the way that Paris Gellar was? Dedicated, hard-working, and with a take-no-prisoners attitude, Paris didn’t care about making friends as long as she got to the top.
With dual goals of being a doctor or a lawyer and her sights set on the highest position she could achieve, Paris had an eagle-eyed focus on the future that endeared her to few (except us, of course!).
Capricorns are often considered cold-hearted workaholics, and while Paris was definitely determined, she also had a soft side that only a cherished few were able to see.
Taurus: Dean Forester
Dean may have been impulsive – marring Lindsay while he was still in love with Rory comes to mind – but, at his core, he was a stable person who exhibited more than a few Taurus traits. For example, Dean was incredibly stubborn. When he told Rory he loved her and didn’t get the response he expected, he dug in his heels. Also, he was very family-minded. With his contrasting views about Donna Reed in one episode, Dean admitted that he kind of enjoyed the traditional male-female roles, which is something this family-minded Earth sign holds dear. He wasn’t Rory’s One True Love, but he was certainly a Taurus!
Air: Kirk Gleason
Kirk is a hard character to pin down. Throughout the series, he holds innumerable jobs, asks out Lorelai before finding Lulu, lives with his mother, sleepwalks naked, and is generally used for comic relief thanks to his weird antics.
Definitely an odd duck, Kirk is like Air signs in that he is incredibly social, even though his personal circumstances might suggest otherwise.
Throughout his work in Stars Hollow, he meets and befriends almost everyone in a weird, quirky, Kirk-y way! Air signs are similar in that they fear commitment (like a steady and dependable income) and love to learn and experience everything the world has to offer!
Libra: Miss Patty
A lover of beauty and aesthetics, Miss Patty is definitely a Libra! Sure, you could argue that, with her love of the spotlight, she might be a Leo, but hear us out.
As a Libra, a communicator who enjoys bringing happiness and harmony to the people around her, Miss Patty is a gossip, but not one with nefarious motives. Instead, she is the source of all information and shows her true heart when it comes to relationships, like that of Luke and Lorelai or Rory and Dean. Usually surrounded by friends and loved ones, Libras are always up for a good time. As a sign born under Venus, they’re also notorious flirts, too!
Aquarius: Lane Kim
A bit of an eccentric and definitely a rebel, Lane Kim is a sure Aquarius. This Air sign is known for going off the beaten track in pursuit of something new and adventurous.
Often quite or shy at first before you get to know them, those born under Aquarius prefer to have a tight-knit group of close friends rather than a horde of many.
It’s all about quality over quantity, which is something we definitely see in Lane. As a drummer in a rock band against her mother’s wishes and a woman who continues to play music despite becoming a mom in the revival, Lane has always had that Aquarius spark
Gemini: Rory Gilmore
When we first met Rory, you could say that she was a Virgo. She was particular, hardworking, attentive to detail, and kind of judgmental, especially when it came to the students at Chilton (or her own mom). However, as the character evolves and becomes less sure of herself and her choices, she seems more like a Gemini to us!
Like Rory, Geminis have a thirst for knowledge and curious minds that need constant stimulation. They enjoy reading and having long conversations, which are two of Rory’s passions. However, they also can’t make up their mind, which we see in Rory with school, relationships, and her future.
Aries: Logan Huntzberger
Like the Life & Death Brigade’s Latin motto In Omnia Paratus, Logan Huntzberger – and Aries – is, too, ready for anything! This Fire sign and the character are more likely to leap before they look and prefer to take major risks in some search for adventure, meaning, or just plain fun!
Logan’s position of being born into privilege has allowed him to get away with everything in his life, but it doesn’t mean he doesn’t rebel against his parents and their restrictions, which is a very Aries thing to do.
Plus, has there ever been a character on the show who was quite so confident that he became a total jerk? We didn’t think so!
Leo: Richard Gilmore
At the head of the pride of the Gilmore family, we have Richard. A leader in family and business, Richard draws a great deal of his ego from his famous name, his wealth, and the accomplishments of himself and those around him. He is also fiercely loyal and devoted, defending Lorelai against Christopher’s parents and showing Mitchum Huntzberger a thing or two when he discovered the truth about what had been said to Rory to cause her to leave Yale.
Strong and prideful at first glance, Richard is soft-hearted and kind, warm and generous, and one of the most beloved characters in the show.
Best Love Match For Earth Signs: Sookie St. James Or Jackson Belleville
Earth signs can be high-strung, which is why they need someone to mellow them out without totally disregarding their feelings and anxieties.
Sookie St. James or Jackson Belleville are ideal for Earth signs because they are both family-oriented and very ambitious without getting too wrapped up in their own anxieties.
Plus, they are very into food, and for an Earth sign like Taurus – who is very much a foodie – this is a huge bonus!
As a co-owner of the Dragonfly Inn, Sookie appeals to a Capricorn’s ambition, while her perfectionist streak aligns with Virgo. Jackson is highly-skilled at what he does and refuses to allow anything sub-par pass his scrutiny, which is a quality both of those signs respect!
Best Love Match For Air Signs: Logan Huntzberger Or Lane Kim
Air signs hate to be tied down, and would rather have something memorable and short-lived than something stagnant and long-lasting. For that reason, Air signs are best suited to someone like Logan Huntzberger or Lane Kim.
Logan, for all his shortcomings, is undeniably charming, witty, and adventurous, which are the most attractive qualities for Air signs. (Plus, his piles of money would definitely fund some elaborate vacations!) Lane, with her extensive musical knowledge, high levels of energy, and desire to think and do things that are outside of the usual would be intriguing to an Air sign who would value her as a partner and friend!
Best Love Match For Water Signs: Jess Mariano Or Rory Gilmore
Water signs are sensitive and can be hurt easily.
They don’t trust without learning a great deal about the other person and are drawn to those who have hints of darkness without being impossible to get to know.
While Jess Mariano would be a challenge, it would be one that a Water sign would gladly accept. His intellect, passion, and intensity would be impossible to resist! Rory, in her need to please others, would offer enough security to the sensitive Water signs without being a total pushover, and her brain and quick wit would keep them stimulated, creating a foundation of mental connection before things move elsewhere.
Best Love Match For Fire Signs: Emily Gilmore Or Dean Forester
Fire signs need someone who can keep up with them without backing down, which is why Emily Gilmore and Dean Forrester work, but in completely different ways!
Emily could keep a Fire sign on their toes, but she’s also the perfect hostess, allowing her partner to be the one in the spotlight without competing. A Fire sign would feel well taken care of with Emily at their side. Dean, on the other hand, brings a grounding element to this impulsive sign. While he’s had his moments of spontaneity, he is a stable force that could take a backseat to a Fire sign’s antics without making them feel judged.
