Have you ever wondered which leading lady from Sex and the City represents you? We're pretty sure we all have, and what we've come up with is that there's a little bit of Carrie, Samatha, Charlotte, and Miranda in all of us. Whether you're the one defending your Manolo Blahniks while writing about love and relationships, the one who's not afraid to say who and what she wants, the one waiting for your prince charming and playing tennis, or the one raising a son and a man at the same time, we can all relate to each of the leading ladies from the show that defined us.
Maybe it's just like Carrie said, "Maybe we can be each other's soul mates and then we can let men be just these great, nice guys to have fun with." We think there's a Carrie, Samantha, Charlotte, and Miranda in all of our souls and we're using the zodiac signs to find out which character we're most like with a few bonus entries for our favorite heartthrobs from our favorite show too (Mr. Big we're looking at you!) Here's to all of our happy endings, finding Mr. Big, the friends that helped us through, and, of course, cosmopolitans.
20 Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, And Sagittarius) - Samatha Brings The Heat To Fire Signs
Out of all of the leading ladies, Samantha obviously brings the heat, whether in her love life or in terms of her sometimes, brutal, honesty with her gal pals. Fire signs are known for their confidence and for their bold personalities,
and Samantha Jones emulates those fiery embers too, always telling her girls to try the latest beauty craze and to ditch the dating scene.
And honestly, with years invested in that show, we might be leaning with Samantha, maybe botox is better than boyfriends. Marie Claire points out one of Samantha's best quotes, "I will not be judged by you or society," and this is so totally Samantha.
19 Aries - Miranda Is Independent And The Boss Of Her Own Life
Miranda definitely represents Aries, and it's not just her fiery red hair. Miranda is bold and a boss, not just of herself, but of her friends and family, especially Steve, sorry Steve. Odyssey reminds us of one of our favorite Miranda quotes, "I want to enjoy my success, not apologize for it." Yes, girl! We're with it. Miranda is a successful lawyer on the show, not to mention a sometimes single mom, and she knows her worth and the realities of the dating world, and that sometimes not having expectations is the best expectation. She also ups and quits her job in the second movie because she knows what she deserves.
18 Leo - Carrie Is Driven By Love And Lust But Trusts Herself
Leos are known for love, and we all remember Carrie's connection to the "Love" keychain! Remember Louise and her love, well Carrie never stopped looking for her love either. Carrie's life and column revolve around finding love and keeping it.
At the same time, Leos have the confidence of a Fire sign and Carrie's best relationship is with herself.
Vogue reminds us of the time Carrie said, "The most exciting, challenging and significant relationship of all is the one you have with yourself. And if you find someone to love the you you love, well, that's just fabulous."
17 Sagittarius - Samatha Is Open-Minded And Not Afraid Of Going Solo
Samantha represents our Sagittarius girls in that she's our most open-minded of the group. Samatha is always up to try new things, whether in the bedroom or the new club that opened up; her PR career definitely contributes to this. The point being, Samantha is not tied down to a city or any man, which is probably why she ends up in LA and how she walks away from Smith. Remember; she'll try anything once, but she also knows what she wants, even if it's to travel to Abu Dhabi solo or with her friends anyway! Samatha is a realist and an extrovert and represents the Sagittarius girl!
16 BONUS! Sagittarius Guy - Smith Jared, Samantha And Smith Were An Independent Couple And Played It Cool
Smith also seems like the perfect guy to embody the Sagittarius sign. He and Samatha play it so cool, like too unbelievably cool. They're both open-minded and never put too much pressure on what they actually are or aren't.
At the same time, he's optimistic and open to the meaning of life and love, like that time he confronted Samantha for not holding his hand.
BuzzFeed quotes him, "Samatha, I like you, you like me. And I've had enough...just...hold my hand." Like why did Smith ever need to convince anyone to hold his hand? We're right here, Smith!
15 Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, And Pisces) - Miranda Keeps It Real
Miranda definitely embodies the Water signs, mostly because she relies on herself more than anything. Of course, she's a boss lawyer and super analytical, but she never overthinks her common sense. She's witty and sarcastic, but at the same time she does go with the flow and feels for others, remember when she tried to help with Steve's mom, or when she decided to raise Brady and became a working mom who did it all? Talking about going with the flow, Odyssey points out that time that Miranda said this, "Last night, Steve and I held hands for an hour and a half watching the fire. He was looking into my eyes, I was looking for the remote."
14 Cancer - Carrie Feels It All
There's no doubt about it, Carrie has feelings, whether for Mr. Big, Aidan or about a pair of shoes.
Cancers are attached to those they love and they feel everything, even other people's emotions.
Carrie is the perfect example, not only does she write a column on love, but she also trusts the process of becoming. Odyssey quotes Carrie, "Maybe our mistakes are what make our fate. Without them what would shape our lives? Perhaps if we never veered off course, we would never fall in love, or have babies, or be who we are. After all, seasons change. So do cities. People come into your life and go. But it's comforting to know that the ones you love are always in your heart..."
13 Scorpio - Samantha Knows Herself And Is True To Who She Is, No Matter What
Samantha gets judged quite a few times during Sex and the City, whether her clothing choices, or her dating advice, but that never changes her opinion, and rarely filters her hilarious and, honestly, fabulous lines. Scorpios tend to be passionate and like to control situations and that definitely describes Samantha Jones. Let's not forget when Samantha was absolutely done with the societal pressures to get married and have a baby and she decided to throw herself a shower - an "I-don't-have-a-baby-shower," according to BuzzFeed. Like, honestly can we do that too? Either way, Samantha inspires all women to feel fabulous, despite where they are in their lives!
12 Pisces - Charlotte Is A Dreamer And Never Forgets Her Fairytale
Pisces are often artistic, which is perfect for Charlotte since she works in an art gallery for most of Sex and the City. Charlotte is also a dreamer, and Pisces are definitely dreamy in the sign world. Charlotte's biggest dream throughout Sex and the City? To find prince charming and start a family, and hopefully, he plays tennis, comes from a good family, and is filthy rich.
The thing we love most about Charlotte though is as much as she's a dreamer, she just wants to find love.
So even though Harry wasn't exactly what she pictured, she'd give up anything to be with him, the idea of marriage, Christmas — and because she chooses to love, she doesn't end up giving anything up. Either way, there's a little bit of Charlotte in all of us, and we're not cursing the day she was born, sorry Mr. Big.
11 BONUS! Pisces Guy - Aidan Is Just Dreamy
Okay, Aidan isn't just absolutely dreamy, but he definitely is giving us that Pisces vibe. Aidan seems cultured and world traveled, but also like at some point he lived out of a van with a surfboard strapped down to it. At the same time, he's needy, he dreams of real love, and he wants to spend every waking moment with Carrie. Cosmopolitan points out his sensitive side, reminding us of the time he said, "You gave me a key, but when are you gonna let me in here, huh?" If you can't remember this one, he then points to Carrie's heart. Sure, he's a little corny, but he's sweet and woodsy and can probably fix a broken sink. He's just practical and the embodiment of a Pisces man.
10 Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, And Capricorn) - Miranda Is Real And Responsible, Even In Raising Brady
Miranda is definitely representing our Earth signs.
Earth signs are responsible people, they are practical, and they come through for their friends,
and we saw Miranda be this countless times on Sex and the City, whether her taking in Steve's mom or telling Carrie like it is when it comes to her on-again, off-again relationship with Mr. Big. Remember that time she questioned her girls and, according to BuzzFeed, said this, "You need to pretend to be someone else to be in a relationship?" Miranda is all about being herself and not being ashamed of being a strong, powerful, and totally independent woman.
9 Taurus - Samantha Is Sensual And Strong
Taurus signs are sensual and strong signs, and out of all the ladies from Sex and the City, we all know Samantha Jones is definitely the most sensual. We're making the argument that she's the strongest too. Samantha beats breast cancer during Sex and the City and we all remember the iconic moment that she took her wig off while presenting her speech; she tried so hard to say something inspirational, but remember, her being her real self is what got everyone in the audience to stand up. Likewise, Samantha was always strong enough to stand up for herself in a relationship or with her friends.
8 Virgo - Carrie Is Smart And Romantic, But Practical Too
Virgos are romantics and, obviously, so is Carrie, but she's also practical and real and she's not sugar coating anything. So when Mr. Big disappoints, she tends to let him know, or at least write about it in her column.
What we love about Carrie, is that even though she's waiting for her happy ending, she's okay with being a little lost, and a little alone too.
Odyssey reminds us of the time Carrie gave us this, "As we drive along this road called life, occasionally a gal will find herself a little lost. And when that happens, I guess she has to let go of the coulda, shoulda, woulda and buckle up and just keep going."
7 Capricorn - Charlotte Is Patient... To An Extent
Okay, perhaps one of our favorite Sex and the City lines of all time is when Charlotte breaks down to her girlfriends and says, "I've been dating since I was fifteen. I'm exhausted. Where is he?!" Like, girl, we feel you. WHERE IS HE?! Anyway, Charlotte definitely embodies the Capricorn girls. Capricorns are practical and patient, but they can be really stubborn too, and as much as we love Charlotte, she tends to be a little stuck in her ideals, especially when she describes Harry as undateable, SPOILER ALERT - Charlotte, you marry him and make us all want to, too!
6 Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, And Aquarius) - Miranda Isn't Afraid To Tell The Truth And Knows How To Find It
Being that Miranda is a lawyer by day, she knows how to find the truth.
Not only that, but like all Air signs tend to be, she uses her brain first and makes fair, logical, and rational choices.
Take for example Miranda and Steve's reunion on the Brooklyn Bridge — although Miranda is influenced by her heart she treats the decision with wit too. Before the romantic reunion, Miranda sits in a coffee shop, undoubtedly with a legal pad filled with pros and cons, and in a whirlwind moment gets foam on her upper lip, swaying her to stay with Steve.
5 Libra - Samantha Knows Her Worth And Loves Herself More Than Anyone Else
Samantha is social, most Libras are, but most importantly she loves beautiful things, whether beautiful people (looking at you Smith), designer clothes, or the pinkest cocktail at the bar, and this is a common trait Libras share; they love beautiful things. Not only that, Libras are social, which Samantha definitely is. She's in public relations and is always the standout at any party or social gathering. She loves attention, but at the same time she's independent and knows her own beauty and worth. Take for example the time she told Smith, "I love you, but I love me more."
4 BONUS! Libra Guy - Mr. Big Might Think Too Much Of Himself
Does anyone else have a total love-hate relationship with Mr. Big?! Like, okay, we get it, Carrie, we all have that one person who we go back to time and time again, but that moment that he stood Carrie up at the altar was seriously uncalled for, even if she was being a total Bridezilla!
Mr. Big and his Libra vibes — he's always got the youngest, most beautiful girl on his arm all the while Carrie stares at him baffled as per usual because their chemistry is as strong as ever, always.
Anyway, Mr. Big works in the world of finance and is obviously into opulence and beauty, making him the total Libra.
3 Aquarius - Carrie Is A Writer, Realist, And Believer, Especially In Love
Aquarius girls are generally curious and creative, but also can be a little erratic, which seems to sum up Carrie. She's our favorite writer, she's fashionable, but she tends to follow her heart and her friends' advice, usually to a fault. Vice describes Carrie, "She is the spectacular romantic antihero who continually rejects healthy decisions in favor of obviously terrible ones, and then spirals perfectly toward disaster...she is a perfect simulacrum of our worst selves. For that reason, Carrie is undoubtedly the show's greatest accomplishment." We can't help but agree here, think of how many times she goes back to Mr. Big!
2 Gemini - Charlotte Is The Girl Next Door, Even If She's Still Trying To Convince Herself
Charlotte is kind of adorable in her own way. We were reminded of this scrolling through BuzzFeed and watching the GIF where Charlotte tells Carrie, "I just...I wish I've never been married before...I hate that this is my second ring. And that this is my second marriage. And I hate that I finally found the love of my life and I can't celebrate it in a big, big way." To which Carrie tells her to do whatever she wants.
The reason we're thinking Charlotte represents Geminis is that she's generally cheerful.
She, out of all the women on the show, believes in finding love and having her fairytale, but at the same time, she can be a little duplicitous. When she finally gets everything she wants, she wants to feel bad for herself.
1 BONUS! Gemini Guy - Harry Goldenblatt, Charlotte And Harry Are Quick-Witted Together
Geminis are social but also serious people. Charlotte and Harry are definitely representative of these traits. They are couple goals, from smart financial choices to a beautiful place to live to the way they treat and understand each other and are free to be their selves around one another. If Charlotte was my big sister, I would totally look up to her and try to be her kid's babysitter so I could go on vacations with her and her adorable family. They're the people we could all get some decent advice from and crash on the couch if we ever needed to, and for that, they're our favorite SATC couple!
