Which Witch From TV/Film Are You, Based On Your Zodiac?

Not all witches wear pointy hats, keep black cats as pets and brew up potions in cauldrons (though some of them do). There are also those that attend high school, that are parents, that hide their powers from prying neighbors and that must balance their gifts with their everyday lives, full of tests and work and significant others.

While most people out there may have their favorite witches from television shows and films, the information that is down below will match everyone with a witchy being, all based on the zodiac.

Updated on October 31st, 2022 by Amanda Bruce: As witches have become more than just the villains in scary stories, the number of witches in popular media has exploded. There are children just learning to use abilities and witches using their power for good, as well as witches who straddle the line between superhero and villain. Audience members can identify with these characters without being worried about being labeled as a villain. Of course, movies like Hocus Pocus 2 and Doctor Strange In The Multiverse of Madness show that even the witches who are villains have a heart.

Next up would be those who are born between March 21 and April 19: Aries. Some traits found in these types include being competitive and being passionate to the point of being hopeful or greedy.

That being said, the match here is The Craft’s Nancy Downs. She has her friends, but she wants to be the best, she focuses on her own passion, and she doesn’t know the word “no”. Nancy embodies the passion and impetuous nature of the Aries.

In Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End, Tia Dalma hopped aboard the Black Pearl in order to find her true love, Davy Jones. Of course, it turns out that this character is actually Calypso, the sea goddess, and she is the match for those who enter the world between April 20 and May 20.

Like Calypso, a Taurus is strong and sensual, with a fierce attitude and determination within them. A Taurus never gives up, even if it takes them centuries to achieve their goals.

Geminis are born between May 21 and June 20, and they are passionate and creative individuals whose place in the zodiac is often colored by them changing their minds a lot. The only reason they do that is that they are ready and willing to adapt to new situations quickly.

Madame Mim, however, uses a lot of her Gemini traits in more dastardly ways. She’s the enemy of The Sword In The Stone’s Merlin. Her creativity and passion tend to be aimed at making his life more difficult instead of enriching her own.

Several witches can be found in American Horror Story: Coven, including Misty Day, and some Cancers out there may identify with her. Born between June 21 and July 22, these people are intuitive, sentimental, and protective, which sounds like this hippie-of-a-witch character.

It might not seem like Misty Day and Glinda the Good of The Wizard Of Oz would have much in common. After all, Misty gets stuck in a hell of her own making watching frogs being dissected over and over while Glinda travels the land of Oz in a magical bubble and is practically worshiped. They both, however, care deeply for others. Glinda might not be able to help everyone she wants to, but she has Dorothy Gale to rely on for that.

Leos have birthdays that fall between July 23 and August 22. Some characteristics found here include dramatic and self-assured, making the match one of the most well-known and vicious witches of all time. In The Wizard of Oz, the Wicked Witch Of The West swoops in, scares people, makes threats, and then melts in water. Talk about a drama queen.

Leos aren’t typically villainous people, but their traits do lend themselves to a couple of good witchy villains. In addition to the Wicked Witch, Elaine Parks of The Love Witch also fits the bill. Elaine so badly wants to be loved – and be the center of someone else’s world – that she turns to magic to help her do just that.

If someone is born between August 23 and September 22, then they are a Virgo, and they may be loyal and gentle, as well as thoughtful and careful. And a movie witch with these traits is Sally Owens, Sandra Bullock’s character in Practical Magic; she goes back and forth when it comes to her magical gifts, and when she does utilize them, she makes sure it is for good and that (hopefully) nothing will go wrong.

Hermione Granger is one of the few witches whom the audience actually knows the zodiac sign of. She is canonically a Virgo in the Harry Potter universe as birthdays for the characters are known. Her being organized, always one who wants to have a plan, and always the one to take care of her friends, make her a textbook Virgo.

A witch from The Vampire Diaries is Bonnie Bennett, and she is another one who exercises caution and grace when putting her powers on display. This sounds like a Libra. Libras, born between September 23 and October 22, are all about fairness, making Bonnie the perfect match.

While Bonnie is all about fairness and balance, Mary Sanderson of Hocus Pocus spends a lot of her time literally being the peacemaker and voice of reason among her sisters. Bonnie looks out for the world while Mary looks out for her family, but they’re both Libras.

A true witchy sign is Scorpio, as people who enter the world between October 23 and November 21 are passionate yet stubborn, are crafty and can be fearless.

It might be easy to classify all of the Sanderson sisters in Hocus Pocus as Scorpio since they all appear to want the same things in life, but their motivations are very different. The true Scorpio of this trio of ’90s witches is Winifred. It’s Winifred who sets the goals for the sisters and aggressively goes after what she wants, sometimes even leaving her sisters behind to do it.

A Sagittarius is someone with a birthday between the dates of November 22 and December 21, and this person can be described as optimistic and funny. Therefore, the match is Samantha Stephens.

As the main character on Bewitched, she stays positive and makes jokes, even though her husband doesn’t always approve of her craft and her mother never approves of her husband. Samantha finds her own version of freedom in her relationship, just as Sagittarius craves to be free of the rules.

Entering the world between December 22 and January 19, there are Capricorns, and these types have independent streaks and are usually quite forceful and headstrong. A good match for a Capricorn would be Sabrina Spellman of Netflix’s Chilling Adventures Of Sabrina, because from her normal life at her high school to her more thrilling one at The Academy of Unseen Arts, she shows just how sharp and gifted she is.

Capricorns are often seen as one of the most ambitious signs. While Sabrina shows her ambition and family loyalty when she tries to find a balance between ruling Hell and still maintaining her relationships with her human friends, Piper Halliwell in the original Charmed series demonstrates hers by running, and then eventually, opening her own business. She also assumes a lot of the responsibility for taking care of her sisters – both those younger than her and those older than her.

An Aquarius enters the world between January 20 and February 18 and can be described as an uncompromising original. This sounds like the Grand High Witch from The Witches; played by Angelica Huston in the original and Anne Hathaway in the remake, this in-charge and powerful character doesn’t let anything get in her way.

She uses her influence and poise to lead others and to try and rid the world of pesky little children.

Pisces, with birthdays falling between February 19 and March 20, is the sign most often associated with the dreamers of the zodiac. This is the sign that might be considered the most romantic, but can also get lost in their own head a bit. They often think outside the box to get things done as well.

Though the Scarlet Witch and this original Charmed One might be very different at first glance, they do both dream of having love and a family. While Phoebe turns to the dark side more than once to achieve her dreams, the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s Wanda is willing to destroy whole universes to make hers come true.
