Based on the grim single-panel cartoon turned media franchise The Addams Family, Wednesday premiered on Netflix in November of 2022. Centered around the macabre daughter of woe, Wednesday (Jenna Ortega) herself, the series mixed stylistic horror with paranormal mystery.
When Wednesday moves into the special boarding school of Nevermore Academy—a learning institution for supernaturally gifted students—she struggles with her burgeoning psychic abilities. She soon comes to discover that there is another hardship afoot: a monster slaughtering people in the nearby town of Jericho. But is something even more sinister brewing right beneath her nose?
Wednesday boasts a cast of mysteries, spooky, altogether ooky characters. But we're all dying to know which one best relates to us. So why not do as the best psychics do and consult with the stars? Here is the Wednesday character you best connect to based on your zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21-April 19)
While Bianca's siren heritage gives her a special connection to water, she is the fire sign of Aries through and through. Aries are confident and determined individuals who can have a bit of a moody streak. They love physical challenges and are prone to aggression.
Throughout the show, Bianca displayed a commitment to putting Wednesday in her place. Her highly competitive nature had the girls trading barbs and butting heads in true Ram fashion.
Taurus (April 20-May 20)
What Thing lacks in body parts he makes up for in personality—the personality of a Taurus, for sure. This sign of the Bull is incredibly reliable, but can be one of the most stubborn signs around. They're responsible individuals who approach problems with practicality. This earth sign is also known for a love of working with their hands...
Sent to keep an eye on Wednesday as a babysitter of sorts, Thing is established as someone trustworthy to the Addams family. He never strays from his task, following through even when it spells danger. He's one of the most loyal friends around, but he'll stand his ground if you're not treating him right or he thinks he knows best.
Gemini (May 21-June 21)
Geminis are otherwise known as the sign of the Twin, a nod to their dual nature. Enid is an excellent match for this multifaceted air sign—and not just because she's a werewolf. Geminis are curious and affectionate people who love the exchange of ideas. Enid is the gossip queen of Nevermore, always looking for a new friend.
However, like the secondary nature of a Gemini, Enid can also become wrapped up in her own insecurity. When left alone too long, this air sign becomes indecisive and nervous. For Enid, one sniff of perceived rejection has her confirming all the worst things she thinks about herself.
Cancer (June 22-July 22)
Sheriff Donovan Galpin
Cancers, like Sheriff Galpin, are complicated folk. This water sign is tenacious, and good luck to you if you stand in the way of something they've set their mind to. Also known as the sign of the Crab, these individuals may be overflowing with emotion, but you'll hardly ever see it. Get on their bad side and you'll get the claws—they tend to be suspicious, and, at their worst, manipulative.
Sheriff Galpin has a bit of a vindictive streak, as seen with the grudge he holds against Gomez and the rest of the Addams family. Beyond that, he's an incredibly dedicated sheriff who will do anything it takes to protect the people of Jericho. Unfortunately, he's grown cold and distant—especially with his son—since the passing of his wife.
Leo (July 23-August 22)
Principal Larissa Weems
This fire sign is also known as the sign of the Lion, the king—or queen—of the jungle. How appropriate then that it just so happens to be perfect match for Nevermore principal Larissa Weems. Leos are, at their core, incredibly passionate individuals. While they may at times be warm-hearted, they can fall into a habit of arrogance and inflexibility. As they have a natural inclination toward generosity, however, they'll always come around.
Despite her unrequited passion for one Gomez Addams, Weems is very passionate about Nevermore. Her students and their safety mean the world to her, and while she's a bit stubborn in listening to Wednesday's warnings, she would ultimately do anything in the name of the outcasts. She, like a true Leo, likes to flaunt the finer things, making herself a bright spot in the otherwise gloomy aesthetic of the school.
Virgo (August 23-September 22)
Oh, Eugene. You've gotta love him, even if he can be a little uptight. He's proven he's a devoted friend, and his control over bees has certainly come in clutch. It might drive people crazy when he goes off thinking he can do things just fine on his own, but he makes up for it with his big brain and an even bigger heart.
Like Eugene, Virgos tend to have an "all work and no play" mentality. Or rather, work sometimes feels like play for this analytical lot. An earth sign, they have a special connection to nature, and kindness is one of the most important values to them. Represented as the sign of the Maiden, their shyness can be put aside for their steadfast loyalty.
Libra (September 23-October 22)
Dr. Valerie Kinbott
Libras are signs devoted to harmony and fairness. This air sign is represented as the sign of the Scales, and they love to bring balance to the people and world around them. Gentle at heart, Libras believe in sharing and cooperation.
As a therapist, Dr. Valerie Kinbott has dedicated her life to helping not only the citizens of Jericho, but also the students of Nevermore Academy. She doesn't hold the same prejudices many of the locals seem to and goes to great lengths to help anyone who comes to her office. While certain clients aren't as open with her, she displays a patience that only a Libra could have.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21)
Scorpios are a water sign whose biggest strengths are their resourcefulness and bravery. While deep down they are great friends, they also like being right a little too much. Their not-so-great qualities include a distrusting nature, inclinations toward manipulation, and a love of violence.
Though Scorpios often get the short end and are associated with villains, Wednesday is a great example of a heroic Scorpio. While she may be primarily driven by the excitement of mystery, at the end of the day she fights for the people she cares about. Not once does she flinch in the face of monsters, and while she may toy with people's emotions to reach a goal, at least she's being clever...
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21)
Sagittarians are fun, humorous fire signs who tend to have a big mouth. While they're not always the most social, when they get to talking, they don't always say the most diplomatic thing. This sign of the Archer also tends to make big promises they can't always deliver on.
As a gorgon, Ajax has lived his life trying to keep people at an arm's length. When he does interact with others, he's proven how good he is at putting his foot in his mouth. While his unique situation has seen him disappoint people like Enid, he always does his best to make up for it.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19)
Though earth signs are so rarely linked to villainous individuals, who better to break the mold than Nevermore Academy botanical sciences teacher Marilyn Thornhill? Capricorns are masters of self-control, a skill that allowed Thornhill to keep her mask up as she laid the groundwork for her evil plot. As this sign of the Sea Goat always expects the worst, they tend to be unforgiving of those around them. Thornhill certainly held a grudge against the outcasts, as passed down by her ancestors.
Capricorns are especially devoted to family, and, well, we know how that played out for Thornhill...
Aquarius (January 20-February 18)
Aquarians are air signs who love all the freedom that life can bring. If you put limitations on them, they'll be sure to rail against their constraints. This makes them temperamental, though they otherwise run from emotional expression. The risk-takers of the zodiac, they hate it when things get dull.
Tyler Galpin isn't everything he appears to be on the surface. Like the sign of the Water Bearer, he has an aloofness that initially draws Wednesday's interest. While he may be honest about wanting to see what the world can offer beyond the small town of Jericho, there's a temper that he keeps hidden beneath the surface. Tyler certainly shakes things up by unleashing the monster within, and he enjoyed the chaos that he wrought.
Pisces (February 19-March 20)
Pisces are deeply emotional individuals who aspire to find some escape from reality. Typically, this escape manifests itself in some kind of artistic endeavor, as these water signs are the creatives of the zodiac. They are gentle souls who have a tendency to be overly trusting. This sign of the Fish is also well-known for their heightened intuition.
Xavier has a psychic ability that's he's become highly skilled in—though it doesn't always show him the most pleasant of things. While painting the visions that come to him isn't exactly an escape from the horror, it's a pretty neat outlet—especially considering he can bring his art to life. He saw the best in Wednesday and always did what he could to help her investigation, even if maybe the best wasn't what Wednesday truly had to offer.
