Here's Which 'Game Of Thrones' Character Should Be Your BFF, Based On Your Zodiac Sign
Westeros may not be at the top of your fictional places to visit list (the murder rate is pretty off-putting for tourists), but you have definitely thought about which Game of Thrones character would be your bestie. You were surely using the totally non-scientific method of just choosing your favorite character — Tyrion cannot be everyone's best friend — or the one who would be the best at keeping you alive if you were challenged to one of those pesky trials-by-combat. Sorry, guys, but that just won't do. Only the zodiac can truly tell you who would be your one true Westeros BFF.
Every sign of the Zodiac has a distinct personality that meshes well with certain other signs, and while all of those weird seasonal patterns in the Seven Kingdoms — winter has been coming for six years now — keeps the Starks and Lannisters from having real world Zodiac signs, their personalities speak volumes. Pay close attention, my sweet summer children, because surviving Westeros relies heavily on the same buddy system principle that kept you from getting lost at the museum during field trips. Find your sign and find out who will have your back in the game of thrones.
Aries (March 21 - April 19): Gendry
A lover of adventure and excitement, you are not one to sit still. Your love of discovering new things and your passionate spirit can lead to all sorts of hijinks. Your best friend is going to have to keep up with you, but also be able to talk you down when your temper flairs up. Gendry is your ideal companion. He can be level-headed and practical when you need him to be, while also matching you in wits and will. The two of you might butt heads on occasion, but you will both be better off for it.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20): Brienne Of Tarth
It's OK to admit you like to be in charge. You like things done a certain way and are way more comfortable giving orders than taking them. However, that doesn't mean you should surround yourself with people who will follow you blindly. You need a best friend who will challenge you and push you to be your best self — a partner, not a pushover. The lady knight Brienne of Tarth is every bit as stubborn as you, but she is also caring and an excellent listener who will open up your worldview in new and exciting ways.
Gemini (May 21 - June 21): Tyrion Lannister
With your penchant for shifting moods, you can be an emotional companion. You love to debate some days, and get down to some serious quiet contemplation the next. Tyrion is just the person you need to keep you on your toes. His personality is rather mercurial too, and while you two can go out, have a laugh, and drink all the wine, you can also sit down and have a deep and meaningful conversation.
Cancer (June 22 - July 22): Jon Snow
Your gentle soul and thoughtful nature makes you a good friend to all, but it's hard for you to find a friend you feel totally comfortable being yourself around. Jon will be that friend. He's loyal, brave, and even funny on occasion. While he can verge on the emo sometimes, you will be there to bring him back to reality, and that is why you two make the best team.
Leo (July 23 - August 22): Margaery Tyrell
Leos like to own the spotlight, but that doesn't mean you want a friend who is going to stand back and let you soak up all the attention. What fun is that? No, you need Margaery with her ambitious, focused nature by your side. Best friends and co-conspirators, you two will have a blast making mischief and owning the town together.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22): Sansa Stark
While you may feel like you don't need anyone thanks to your fiercely independent spirit, you know deep down that is not true. You are smart and a bit of a loner, but everyone needs a friend, especially one as kind and clever as Sansa. Her strength will make you admire her, and her quiet companionship will feed both your souls.
Libra (September 23 — October 22): Daenerys Targaryen
You and Dany would have so much to offer each other. She is always in need of the sort of fair and balanced counsel that comes so easily to you, and you could use a little excitement in your life. Her fiery personality will definitely help out with that, as will the fact that your BFF has dragons.
Scorpio (October 23 — November 21): Oberyn Martell
You value order and dedication in your own life, and while your ambitious nature is admirable, it can also lead to you being a bit too self serious. Oberyn can change that. He is a smart, interesting man who you can have intellectual conversations with, but he is also passionate and unpredictable in a way that will make life infinitely more interesting for you. Oberyn will always catch you ever so slightly off guard and you will adore him for it.
Sagittarius (November 22 — December 21): Arya Stark
Arya can be a little bit intimidating as a friend, but you two share an independent streak. You would both like to believe you don't need anybody, but you are at your best when you have an ally. Arya will have your back no matter what as long as you stay true to her, which shouldn't be hard since the two of you share the same electric, free personality.
Capricorn (December 22 — January 19): Davos Seaworth
Studious and disciplined, Capricorns work hard and have little patience for excessive frivolity. You don't want a best friend you have to pick up at the pub in the middle of the night, you want someone like Davos. He is calm, straightforward, and extremely loyal. Your unwavering dedication to and understanding of each other will be the envy of others.
Aquarius (January 20 — February 18): Jaime Lannister
Aquariuses and Leos make the best friends, and what is Jaime if not a lion? You are a vibrant cool kid who loves hanging with the other cool kids. You and Jaime will amuse and entertain each other, but you will also be able to let down your guard with one another. It's not something either of you are totally comfortable doing, but the fact that you are both so accepting of others will make your friendship a beautiful, trusting one.
Pisces (February 19 — March 20): Samwell Tarly
Your imagination is boundless, which gives you a love of creativity and self expression. You are a sensitive soul who needs to surround yourself with people like Sam. His heart is so full of love and kindness, being around him will feed your spirit and the two of you will make the ultimate creative team.
So, you are not all best friends with Tyrion, but at least now you know who would have your back in Westeros — and no one got stuck with Ramsay which makes this a win-win situation for everyone.
