Just about every character on Curb Your Enthusiasm has a cynical, sarcastic bite, but, much like the show’s viewers, they’re all unique in a way.
Curb Your Enthusiasm, one of the longest-running comedies in the history of HBO, continues to unveil episodes that are just as memorable as they would have been twenty years ago. This is largely true because of the incredible cast of characters on Curb who have remained consistent over the two decades the show has been on the air.
Each character, though similarly engaged in misanthropic actions, has their own personality traits. This makes them perfectly suited to represent the signs of the Zodiac. If any fan of the show ever wondered which character they best aligned with, based on when they were born, then this is absolutely the guide for them.
Aries: Leon Black
As the most spirited sign in the Zodiac, those who are Aries are free spirits who operate independently and march to the beat of their own synthesizer. No character on Curb is a better Aries match, therefore, than Leon Black.
Leon is the Kramer of Curb in the sense that no one ever knows what he is up to, and they never know what his temporary passions will cause him to do next.
Taurus: Cheryl David
It takes a lot to be married to Larry David for as long as Cheryl was. She was able to achieve this because she embodies the traits of a Taurus. She’s stubborn, like Larry, this is likely how she found the connection to the Seinfeld creator. However, Cheryl was always willing to hear other viewpoints, too. Furthermore, she was exceedingly intelligent and one of the most trusted characters in the entire Curb universe.
Gemini: Ted Danson
Ted Danson is a clear fit for the Gemini sign because of how he can seamlessly weave in and out of different social groups. This is the hallmark of the Gemini, which is often considered to be a chameleon’s sign.
Ted can get in the muck with Larry David and be just as deplorable. However, he can also put on airs of kindness, even if arrogance lurks behind it. From Cheers to The Good Place to Curb and beyond, few have been as dynamic as Danson.
Cancer: Rosie O’Donnell
Rosie appears only sparingly on Curb, but she makes as big of an impact as she does with every role she has taken throughout her life. Her character, who has immense intuition, seems to be at least fairly accurate to her real-life persona. What makes Rosie the Curb representative of Cancer, though, is that she is exceedingly loyal. If one gets into her inner circle, they are there forever, even if she can be a bit standoffish at first.
Leo: Susie Greene
As one of the fiercest spirits in the Zodiac, Susie is assuredly a Leo, as she’s the foul-mouthed woman in Larry’s life who does not care who she offends. With Susie, it’s her way or no way at all and this is entirely emblematic of a Leo.
As evidenced by the season ten story when Larry buys a portrait of Susie for her birthday, she is eager to lavish praise on herself whenever possible. Suffering no fools and putting herself on a pedestal, Susie is unquestionably a Leo representative.
Virgo: Marty Funkhouser
Marty is definitely a push-over in Larry David’s life, but these demure traits are only surface level. The depths of Marty are actually quite worldly, and his misanthropy seems limited to his interactions with Larry.
Ever the world traveler who embodies qualities of sophistication at social gatherings, Marty Funkhouser is currently overseas in the world of Curb, though Bob Einstein passed away before the tenth season of the show commenced.
Libra: Loretta Black
A Libra is someone who feels what she feels so deeply that when she commits to one of those emotions, she ends up going all in. This sounds like a perfect description of Loretta Black. Seemingly from nowhere, Loretta strikes up a relationship with Larry, and she becomes willing to commit to life’s greatest hardships with him. It’s a testament to the Libra spirit of kindness and full hearts that Loretta doesn’t fall into pieces when she believes that Larry is cheating on her.
Scorpio: Larry David
Anyone who is a fan of Curb and a scholar of the Zodiac knew that Larry was absolutely going to be a Scorpio. The main character of Curb, around whom the episodes are always based, has never once cared what others think about him.
And that is a true Scorpio way to be! Larry has no filter whatsoever, and, even though it gets him into trouble, he never lets up. Larry David will always tell a person what he thinks of them.
Sagittarius: Lin-Manuel Miranda
Few people in this world embody the qualities of enthusiasm and creativity like Lin-Manuel Miranda, the creator of Hamilton, does. His guest arc at the end of season nine remains an iconic one in the history of Curb.
The Sagittarius passion with Lin-Manuel extends to trivial things, like getting the big desk in a meeting, to big picture things, like putting on an entire musical. He brought a much needed Zodiac quality of Sagittarius to a show that was lacking in it.
Capricorn: Jeff Greene
As Larry David’s manager—among other such big stars—Jeff Greene is a character whose work is often done on the peripheries. When he’s on-screen, he’s a “yes man” for Larry ninety percent of the time.
That’s just because Jeff has the qualities of a Capricorn. He is someone who appreciates a routine and a natural order of how a job should be done. Jeff does not believe that variety is the spice of life, and this makes him a perfect representation of Capricorn.
Aquarius: Mocha Joe
Mocha Joe, even though his name is practically synonymous with coffee on Curb, is truly an individual. He is loyal to no one and is willing to burn through friendships at even the slightest complaint.
This definitely paints him as a strong-willed character, but it also shows that he can be tough to get along with. Mocha Joe is an Aquarius because of these traits, which show him as someone who gets along with himself above all others.
Pisces: Richard Lewis
Richard Lewis is a smart and funny comedian, but he always plays second fiddle to the antics of his best friend, Larry David. Lewis’ own creative personality is always pushed to the side, but he still remains loyal to Larry in the end.
Loyalty is definitely a hallmark of Pisces, but so is the ability to intuit if a situation is right or wrong from the jump. Like Larry, though, Lewis is not afraid to call out the situation for being so. He’s the closest thing Curb has to a Pisces figure.
