‘Zodiac’ by Romina Russell: Fictional Characters Who Share the Aries Sign

With the paperback release of Zodiac by Romina Russell out today, I’d thought it would be fun to take a look at my zodiac sign and find out which other fictional characters share the same one as me.

Zodiac_Cover-683x1024Zodiac follows Rhoma Grace, a 16-year-old student from House Cancer with an unusual way of reading the stars. While her classmates use measurements to make accurate astrological predictions, Rho can’t solve for ‘x’ to save her life—so instead, she looks up at the night sky and makes up stories.

When a violent blast strikes the moons of Cancer, sending its ocean planet off-kilter and killing thousands of citizens—including its beloved Guardian—Rho is more surprised than anyone when she is named the House’s new leader. But, a true Cancerian who loves her home fiercely and will protect her people no matter what, Rho accepts.

Then, when more Houses fall victim to freak weather catastrophes, Rho starts seeing a pattern in the stars. She suspects Ophiuchus—the exiled 13th Guardian of Zodiac legend—has returned to exact his revenge across the Galaxy. Now Rho—along with Hysan Dax, a young envoy from House Libra, and Mathias, her guide and a member of her Royal Guard—must travel through the Zodiac to warn the other Guardians.

But who will believe anything this young novice says? Whom can Rho trust in a universe defined by differences? And how can she convince twelve worlds to unite as one Zodiac?

Zodiac is available in paperback on November 10th. The sequel, Wandering Star, releases on December 15th. Pre-order it now!


I was born on April 7th, making me an Aries! According to Zodiac Signs Astrology…  “Being the first of the zodiac signs, they venture out and are go-getters, often leading the way. Their upbeat and magnetic personality often entices others to follow their lead because Aries personalities bring excitement into others lives.”

Well, I got to say that description is pretty accurate for me (I hope). However, does that ring true for some of our favorite fictional characters. who are also Aries? Let’s find out.


Wonder Woman (DC Comics) – Definitely bold, brave, and battle-ready. No question about it!

james t kirk

James T. Kirk (Star Trek) – Bold. Check. Brave. Check. Battle-Ready. Check.

nate archibald

Nate Archibald (Gossip Girl) – If there was any Gossip Girl character that would be an Aries, you’d think it be Blair Waldorf, but she’s a Scorpio. Nate is a bit of a conundrum here.

fred george weasley

Fred & George Weasley (Harry Potter) – These two are a truly unique Aries pair, using their own brand of boldness and bravery to help others.

seth cohen

Seth Cohen (The O.C) – Seth is a total Aries, whether he believes it or not.

chandler bing

Chandler Bing (Friends) – Chandler is harder to nail down, but I can say he’s bold to say the least.

sydney bristow alias

Sydney Bristow (Alias) – Yes, yes. yes. One of the most badass female characters on TV is a perfect Aries.

jesse full house

Jesse Katsopolis (Full House) – This is the guy who decided to go sky-diving on his wedding day.
