Which Marvel Superhero Would Be Your BFF, Based On Your Zodiac Sign?
No matter how you feel about the zodiac, you have to admit reading your horoscope is fun. The zodiac is a bit like a personality test, it can tell you who are most compatible with, what days you should stay in and just watch Netflix, and tell you which Marvel hero should be your best friend. Wait — you didn't know it could do that last thing? Because it totally can.
The zodiac is in large part about helping you balance your life, and each sign works best with select other signs. Now, I sadly don't know the birth dates of all the Marvel heroes — there's just not a lot of time for birthday parties in The Avengers movies — but each hero has a distinct personality all their own. Finding out which hero would make an excellent pal for you is as simple as matching your sign with the Marvel hero with the most compatible personality. This is the first step toward you getting invited to Stark Tower for Tony's next bash, so pay close attention.
Are you destined to spend weekends with Hawkeye and his family at the expert archer's cozy cabin or should you be hitting the boxing ring with Black Widow for friendly training sessions? Your zodiac sign holds all the answers to your Marvel hero BFF destiny.
Aries (March 21 - April 19): Captain America
I know the saying goes great minds think alike, but the Aries of the world need a little balance in their lives. If you had it your way, every single day would be spent adventuring and partying. Your enthusiasm for life is wonderful, but having a level-headed companion like Cap to keep you grounded will give you a different perspective on life. Captain America isn't a homebody, so he will happily go hang-gliding with you, but he will also help you appreciate the small moments.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Black Widow
Tauruses have personalities that tend to dominate. Your Cancer and Libra friends will let you always get your way, but what you really need is someone who will challenge you. Enter Black Widow. The two of you would get into arguments now and then, but ultimately you would have nothing but the utmost respect for each other. Your friendship would be a volatile one in the best sense of the word.
Gemini (May 21 - June 21): Iron Man
Your moods tend to shift frequently, and as a result you can take life very seriously. You are super in tune with your emotions and a thinker. That's why what you need most in your life is someone who you can have an intellectual conversation with and then go bar-hopping with after. That person is Iron Man. He will bring the fun into your life, but also give you space to do your own thing when you find yourself in a contemplative mood. #ScienceBros for life.
Cancer (June 22 - July 22): Thor
Cancers are sensitive and emotional people who need friends who will support them and always have their backs. Thor has a strong, kind spirit that will make you feel comfortable opening up to him when you are feeling down, and he also has a penchant for getting into mischief when you feel like getting out of your comfort zone. You can teach Thor about the wonders of video games while he enthralls you with tales of Asgard. Trust me, he is the hero BFF you need in your life.
Leo (July 23 - August 22): War Machine
Your personality is larger than life, so you need a best friend who can match your wits, but also bring you back down to Earth when your ego gets out of hand. War Machine can do both of those things and so much more. He can keep up with your need to banter, but he will also keep you in check. The two of you will make one unstoppable team.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22): Hawkeye
Virgos have unique personalities and are prone to analyzing everything. You can get lost in your own thoughts easily, and even find yourself feeling pessimistic as a result. What you need from a best friend is a safe place to land, and Hawkeye will give you that. While he is intensely private about his life, once you are in Hawkeye's inner circle you could not ask for a more loyal, welcoming friend. He's going to make sure you don't overthink life, and as an added bonus you can hang at his sweet cabin.
Libra (September 23 — October 22): Star-Lord
You value order above all else in your life, which is exactly why you need Star-Lord to come along and liven things up. He is going to drive you crazy and make you have the time of your life — sometimes on the same day. The ultimate odd couple, your friendship doesn't make sense on paper, but in practice you brighten up each other's lives while having fantastic adventures in space.
Scorpio (October 23 — November 21): The Wasp
Passionate, driven to succeed, and a total perfectionist, you need a friend who not only gets your drive, but also matches it. Your ideal hero BFF is The Wasp. The two of you will be competitive, pushing each other to follow your dreams while also trusting each other enough to let your guard down. You two would be a totally platonic power couple that no one would want to go up against.
Sagittarius (November 22 — December 21): Peggy Carter
You thrive on your independence, so it's rare that you will tie yourself down with anyone. However, you know that friends are a valuable part of life and the right friend will be just as independent, fierce, and rebellious as you are. That's where Peggy comes in. A total trailblazer who doesn't need superpowers to be a hero, Peggy and you will take on the world together and never look back.
Capricorn (December 22 — January 19): Bruce Banner/The Hulk
Serious and disciplined, Capricorns love work. As a result, you don't get much time to play, so you need friends who are patient and steadfast. Bruce is that guy. He's smart and values his space, but he is also loyal, kind, and caring — all attributes that you value. Sure, he turns into a green rage monster every now and then, but that's not too far from how you feel when someone on your team misses a deadline.
Aquarius (January 20 — February 18): Rocket Raccoon
One original spirit deserves another. There ain't no thing like Rocket Raccoon, but Rocket Raccoon, and the same could be said for you. Adventurous, wild, and a total free spirit, you will love Rocket's salty approach to life. The two of you will get into all kinds of trouble together, and have a ton of fun doing it. Just remember, you can't forget about Groot though, so prepare to share your BFF.
Pisces (February 19 — March 20): Ant-Man
Sensitive and dreamy, as a Pisces you refuse to partake in drama and instead go with the flow. Ant-Man takes a similar approach to life. He is funny, genuine, and completely laid back. The two of you can chill all day and love every minute of it. However, if you ever need to get in touch with reality, Ant-Man will give you a reality check in the sweetest, most charming way possible — but since he is a guy who regularly talks to ants, that won't happen too often.
Now that you know who your Marvel BFF is you are totally going to snag an invite to Tony's next Avengers only barbecue.
