Alright, get ready to buckle your seatbelt because if you’ve already binge-watched the entire season one and two like we have this past week, then you already know what to expect from this curated list of characters. We’ve gone through the list of some of the most well-recognized characters and we’ve matched them up with a specific sign in the zodiac based on what we know about their character traits from the show. It’s time to find out whether or not you’re the monster in the walls or the telepathic girl Eleven. Because yes, they are both on this list. There are also a whole slew of other characters involved too, so don’t feel so bad if you’re bummed you are most like Eleven.
This list features some of the main and secondary characters and this is all in good fun, so don’t worry if you didn’t get who you wanted. We’ve also included some of the most memorable quotes from the show just to get you into the creepy spirit of this little town with huge personalities. And before you get back to binge-watching the seasons all over again because you probably already want to watch a season 3, let’s get started.
Grab the popcorn you’ve been snacking on while watching this amazing Netflix series because you’re in for a treat!
15 Max Mayfield & Aquarius
“It’s crazy, but I really liked it. I mean, I had a few issues. I just felt it was a little derivative in parts. I just wish it had a little more originality, that’s all.”
Progressive, original, independent, and a humanitarian at heart. While she might be a bit closed off compared to other individuals in the show, she’s someone who wants friends, she wants to be around people she loves, and she wants to fight for what is right even if she doesn’t know how to. This can be a pretty difficult personality to deal with because they are so guarded whenever something or someone new comes into their life. They can easily adapt to people around them, but they do need to enjoy their alone time away from everything. People usually under this sign see the world as a place of endless possibilities, which can lead to a great change in the world around them, because of them.
14 Will & Pisces
Compassionate and very artistic, this sign has been known to be very in touch with their emotions even if they come off quiet and reserved. They are always allowing their imaginations to run free and they will usually keep their thoughts to themselves. They usually are the individuals that want to escape reality because they feel suffocated. They are the kind of individual that is generous and always wants to help even if people assume that’s not the case because of how quiet they tend to come off as. They can sometimes catch all the attention even if that’s not what they want at all, but it is something that happens quite often to them. It’s quite known that the past comes back to haunt them quite frequently and this can majorly affect how they react to the people around them even if they happen to be very close.
13 Eleven & Aries
Aries, just like Eleven, are courageous, confident, honest, and very determined. While they can also have some negative traits such as being impatient, moody, or even short-tempered, it is very obvious when you meet an Aries because they really do have similar traits that Eleven seems to show in the series. Aries are always trying to multitask, they’re always someone who is trying to figure out everything which can actually lead to unique issues dealing with stress and not taking care of themselves because they put others first. This can be dangerous, just like you’ve seen in the show because this can hurt you if you really buy into this kind of reckless behavior even if it does perform an overall good deed. They are always quick when making choices, which can be positive and negative depending on the situation at hand. This kind of individual can really push them to achieve anything they want.
12 Jim Hopper & Taurus
“Mornings are for coffee and contemplation.”
The Taurus sign is extremely friendly, even when they don’t want to be. They have the kind of personality that they seem to always attract other people into their lives. They’re reliable, patient, practical, devoted, and responsible. The choices they make in their lives are always very responsible and they always think ahead in case they need to prepare for any situation. They are an individual who is very rational and grounded, they never get lost in their emotions and they can be ultra-focused on anything they feel really connected to. They do have a soft side, while we wouldn’t say that it’s exactly emotional, they do easily understand the emotions of others and know how to respond to that by providing comfort and support. This can really make many individuals fall in love with this sign.
11 Billy Hargrove & Gemini
Geminis are known to be very gentle, affectionate, curious, and able to learn fairly quickly. But they also have a negative side which is seen very often in Billy Hargrove. The side that is indecisive, aggressive, and inconsistent. Their nerves usually get to them and it makes them lose it in a number of ways. As a Gemini, they seem to have a child-like view on the world, making them not see things as they are. A Gemini doesn't like conflict and always wants to do good for someone they love. They are a sign that is constantly pushing the limits of others and while this could work in the favor of some people, it can really turn off an individual if they aren’t into this kind of aggressive and uncaring behavior. They’re usually the bad boys and have an edgy personality that makes you love to hate them.
10 Barbara & Cancer
“Eleven, Doc Owens. Doc Owens, Eleven. She’s been staying with me for about a year, and she is about to save our a$$es. Maybe when this is all said and done, maybe you could help her out too, you know? Maybe you could help her lead a normal life, one where she’s not poked and prodded and treated like some kind of lab rat. I don’t know. It’s just a thought.” - Jim Hopper
Of course we all miss Barbara, her soft and gentle way of caring. It was honestly too soon! As a Cancer, you tend to be very sensitive and filled with emotions, and are someone who cares so much for their family and friends. Cancer is someone who feels the pain of others and have a great attachment to those people in their lives. They always will understand you and be there for you as a friend even if they can be closed off. They will always want what is best for the people they really care about.
9 Steve Harrington & Leo
Just like the lion in its kingdom, anyone who is a Leo is known to be a great leader. As a Leo you have a thing for the dramatic, very confident, you like to be in charge, and are also very creative. When comparing these traits and looking at Steve as a character, it's hard to avoid the similarities! Steve throughout the first season was such a dominant character, taking control in his friend group and always up for making a big scene out of things! Especially about poor Jonathan (more on him next). Just looking at him you knew that his entire self is filled with confidence! That's why Leo and Steve make such a good pairing, they are one and the same!
8 Jonathan Byers & Virgo
“It's just, sometimes... people don't really say what they're really thinking. But when you capture the right moment, it says more.”
Virgos pay attention to everything. They are loyal, analytical, hardworking, and very traditional. They love how practical they are and they will probably tell you how proud they are about it. They are constantly seeing to make a difference in their life without fully indulging in change. They plan out every single thing they do in life because they want to make sure that nothing can possibly be left up to chance. While they might not be the most loving individual, they try to open up as much as they can even though some people still don’t see that sense of trying. Virgos are usually misunderstood people, but that’s okay, they’re unique and special just like all the other signs and there are positives that no other signs even have.
7 Mike Wheeler & Libra
“Are you deaf? I thought we were friends, you know? But friends tell each other the truth. And they definitely don't lie to each other. You made me think that Will was okay; that he was still out there but he wasn't! He wasn't. Maybe you thought you were helping but you weren't. You hurt me, do you understand? What you did sucks.”
Libra, just like their sign symbol, which is a balance, are people who like to be fair. They want to make there is always peace, and just like Eleven isn't a fan of being alone. If you want to get really deep, it makes sense that Eleven is represented by two 1s which make her balanced just like the Libra! People born under the sign of Libra are peaceful, fair, and they hate being alone which could explain exactly why there is such a strong connection to Eleven. Eleven is a character who protects her friends whenever there is a conflict with her powers. A Libra is similar in that sense because the hate to see conflict. They might not have the same powers as Eleven but their biggest power is that they are able to defuse any situation and keep the peace between everyone! They are seriously one of a kind.
6 Nancy Wheeler & Scorpio
We love Nancy Wheeler, she’s a strong female character that develops extremely well in her personality traits throughout the seasons. Starting off quite shy and reserved, when in reality she's actually very resourceful, brave, strong, passionate, stubborn, and always a true friend to those in need and to those she cares more about than anything. She’s someone that can’t be knocked down and if she happens to be, she will get right back up and do what is right. While she has lost her way at times, there will always be that unique personality of strength lying under her skin. She has no people fighting for what she really believes in, even if that means risking her own life. She will be willing to do it no matter what the cost may be. While emotions are important to the Scorpio sign, they are known by their cool behavior and they don’t let their emotions control them in most situations.
5 Joyce Byers & Sagittarius
“This is not yours to fix alone. You act like you’re all alone out there in the world, but you’re not. You’re not alone.”
This sign is very generous and idealistic, they always are caring and loving towards those special individuals in their lives. Everyone knows that a Sagittarius is the biggest wanderlust out of all the zodiacs. Always with a bag packed in case she feels like taking off. Sagittarius is very open to new things, which is just like Joyce in the first season. When she can't find Will she is opened to all sorts of possibilities. This makes her seem a little crazy to the other characters in the show, but that's because they don't have the same opened views like a Sagittarius would. Like a Sagittarius who is willing to take action and stand up for what they believe in, Joyce was willing to do it all on her own because no one seemed to believe her or wanted to help her!
4 Martin Brenner & Capricorn
Capricorn is the sign of the zodiac who is one of the more responsible. They also like success so they will work hard towards their goals. The Capricorn is a sign who also likes to stick to their traditions, especially with their relationships. Although it is not always serious work when it comes to the Capricorn, they are a sign who also likes to enjoy themselves along the way. They are also a sign who values their time and the people they spend it with. They are good at managing their time and making sure that they do not waste it on anyone who is not worthy. They are kind of like a no bulls**t type of person. They are the type of friend that will fight for you and stand up for you even when you don’t even expect it.
3 Lucas Sinclair & Aquarius
We've already matched an Aquarius with a character on this list, but lucky for Aquarius, who is versatile, has someone else they can relate to their favorite show. Like Max who is also matched with an Aquarius, these types are very reserved, which is exactly like Lucas who doesn't always say much compared to the other kids. Aquarius likes to use their mind and often get lost in these deep thoughts because they are so busy trying to figure out a way to help the ones they love. Just like Lucas, who is the one tries to figure out what is going on with Will and how they are going to find him! Some pretty heavy stuff for a bunch of kids if you ask us. Aquarius people are thinkers and they like to use their minds whenever they can and need to do so in order to stay entertained.
2 The Demogorgon & Pisces
“Donald. I've been here ten years, right? Have I ever called in sick or missed a shift once? I've worked Christmas Eve and Thanksgiving. I don't know where my boy is. He's gone. I don't know if I'm gonna ever see him again if he's hurt... I need this phone and two weeks' advance. And a pack of Camels.”
Of course, no one is an evil monster, but we had to include some of the traits of this monster that are actually quite similar to this sign. This sign is the sign that’s known for constantly trying to escape reality. They don’t want to be here or deal with the people around them. Much like the monster from another dimension. This sign has a history of their past coming back to haunt them even when they least expect it and they usually experience some kind of traumatic experience in their life that will stay with them forever.
1 Bob Newby & Aries
This sign is known for being optimistic and passionate. Always trying to start something new and ignore the truth even if it’s standing there right in front of them. While he might be all soft and emotional and also full of passion when it comes to his relationship with Joyce, he also can be impatient, moody, and not understanding especially when she’s going through some serious issues that need to be shown more care. It’s very easy for this kind of individual to make someone else feel guilty for even feeling anything of their own emotions. It’s important that you communicate with this sign because they will not pick up on signs or any little hints you might leave around when it comes to telling them something. Just remember you need to be gentle with this sign if they show their more emotional side because they have been known to be short-tempered, emotional, aggressive, and even impulsive.
