It’s beginning to feel a little like the 2010s again, don’t you think? Taylor Swift’s rereleased two albums from the decade, Speak Now and 1989, and we’re getting a new Hunger Games movie. No, we didn’t time travel. The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes, AKA the prequel to Suzanne Collins’ OG trilogy, is here and we couldn’t be more excited to revisit Panem. Whether you’re heading to the theaters ASAP to catch the new film, bingeing the first four movies, or furiously rereading the novels, you might be wondering about which character you’re most like. Not to worry—we figured it out for you. Keep reading below to find out which Hunger Games character you are based on your zodiac sign.

Katniss Everdeen

Katniss is the definition of Aries: She’s courageous, fearless, and a strong leader. It takes a lot of bravery to sacrifice yourself for a loved one like Katniss does when she saves her sister from becoming a tribute. She’s also rebellious and not afraid to stand up to the Gamemakers, which is a total fiery Aries move.

Peeta Mellark

Trustworthiness and reliability are key characteristics of both Peeta and Tauruses. Peeta is loyal, and his stability balances out Katniss’ intensity. As a baker, Peeta resembles an indulgent Taurus, since he clearly appreciates a delicious pastry. Plus, he has the earth sign’s patience to be able to make sure his creations come out perfectly.

Caesar Flickerman

As a TV presenter, Caesar demonstrates his talent for communication, just like a Gemini. He uses his chatty (and gossipy) personality to interview contestants and to provide commentary on the Hunger Games. Another Gemini trait Caesar has is his ability to spin the contestants’ answers to make them entertaining for viewers. You can see the air sign in Caesar’s playful outfits that are very reminiscent of a Gemini’s youthful energy, too.

Tigris Snow

Unlike her cousin Coriolanus, Tigris is very empathetic and caring, similar to Cancers. She despises the cruelty of the Hunger Games, even going as far as to participate in the rebellion against the Capitol, despite her ties to it. Working with a fashion designer and as a stylist for the Games, Tigris shows her creative Cancer side, too.

Effie Trinket

With her bold—sometimes crazy—outfits, Effie is definitely not afraid to make a statement. Even in the Capitol where everyone is dressed outrageously, she still manages to stand out, and everyone knows that’s a Leo’s favorite thing to do. While she can come across as bossy, she uses her rules and penchant for scheduling to help the tributes.

Sejanus Plinth

Virgos and Sejanus alike are smart and have strong work ethics, as can be seen from his standing as one of the top-performing students in his class. Sejanus also displays Virgo’s empathetic and caring nature. He’s sympathetic toward the tributes and the districts and doesn’t agree with how they’re treated by the Capitol.

An appreciation for anything aesthetically pleasing is a key trait of Libras, and as a stylist, Cinna has an eye for fashion and creativity. Libras are also known for being levelheaded, and similarly, Cinna tends to be even-keeled, making it difficult to tell what he’s thinking. And like a peace-loving Libra, he wants justice for Katniss and District 12.

Gale Hawthorne

Gale’s stoic demeanor is very much like a Scorpio’s secretive personality. He keeps his feelings to himself instead of admitting to Katniss that he’s in love with her. Scorpios are extremely loyal to the people close to them, and while he’s not super open with his emotions, he does care deeply about his family and Katniss.

Lucy Gray Baird

Lucy has the big personality of a larger-than-life Sag. As one of the main protagonists of the Hunger Games prequel, she’s charming, charismatic, and independent, which are all hallmarks of Sagittarius. Not to mention she’s confident enough to sing in front of large Capitol audiences.

Coriolanus Snow

As one of the top students in his class at the Academy, Coriolanus Snow is obviously intelligent and hard-working—two characteristics that scream Capricorn. He’s also ambitious and somewhat power-hungry, as he gives up his relationship with Lucy in order to eventually become President. Capricorns aren’t typically expressive, and Coriolanus can be pretty reserved with his emotions.

Haymitch Abernathy

Strategic, smart, and independent are three words to describe Haymitch and Aquarians. He manipulates Katniss in the Games, but his end goal is to bring down the Capitol. Aquarians have a rebellious nature, but like Haymitch, they believe in doing things for the greater good. Another trait of the air sign is their reluctance to show emotions, and instead of dealing with his feelings, Haymitch bottles them up and uses drinking as a way to cope.

A knack for the arts is a major Pisces attribute, and Rue has a passion for music and singing. She even uses her gift for melodies during the Games as a signal when working with Katniss. In addition to being artistic, Rue’s also extremely kind, preferring to hide as protection rather than trying to hurt other tributes.
