The characters in Big Little Lies are some of the most interesting on TV right now. Which one better matches your personality, basic on your zodiac?
HBO’s Big Little Lies is a drama series based on Liane Moriarty’s novel of the same name. The main characters, all women, are explored to their intricacies, each of them very distinct from one another. They become friends despite the differences in their age, financial backgrounds, and races.
The series’ supporting characters are also unique in their motivations and beliefs. Even though the series has finished airing (for a while, at least), fans will remember the characters for how distinct their personalities are. Find out which character you’re most similar to based on your Zodiac sign.
ARIES: Madeline Mackenzie
If you’re a natural leader who enjoys challenging themselves, you’re probably most like Madeline Mackenzie. She displays the personality traits typical of an Aries: she’s got a fiery temper, but she’s usually cheerful.
Her relentless determination and passion see her pushing for causes she believes in, like helping out her friends and fighting for justice, or insisting her daughter go to college. Her approach is always direct and to-the-point, which sometimes shows in her impulsive and selfish actions, like her affair. Otherwise, Madeline is upbeat and enjoys the vibrancy of parties as an Aries often does.
TAURUS: Mary Louise Wright
Mary Louise might just be the most stubborn character on this show. Some may call it perseverance, but Mary Louise is simply unable to change her mind about some things, including her son’s true character. She spends a lot of time ruminating and analyzing, which is why she can’t move on from fighting for her son’s reputation.
She’s relentless when it comes to Celeste and her boys and notoriously nitpicky – otherwise known as fussy. Her appearance and lifestyle show us she has a penchant for luxury in her material world, just like a Taurus.
GEMINI: Abigail Carlson
Abigail is confident, intelligent, artistic, and adaptable, but sometimes she can be impulsive and unreliable. Gemini tend to be nosy, wanting to know everything about everyone, and unfortunately, Abigail reveals Madeline’s darkest secret to Ed.
Abigal is willing to try anything, as we see from her somewhat controversial decisions in the show’s two seasons. She’s willing to be adventurous, daring, and flexible, and she’s very enthusiastic about what she stands for. However, she often tries to avoid responsibility and boring activities, which is why Madeline views her as irresponsible.
CANCER: Renata Klein
Renata proves her loyalty, protectiveness, intuition, and deep care for her family when she discovers her husband’s grave failings. Like a Cancer, she’s fiercely committed to her family, but she can be sensitive, moody, and vindictive. This can make her seem a bit overbearing sometimes.
She also has a knack for reading people, almost like a psychic ability to know things – for instance, her husband’s dishonest behavior, and her immediate mistrust of Mary Louise. Renata’s other Cancer-like traits include her independence, skillful handling of money, and nurturing care towards her daughter. Most notably, she has to have her way.
LEO: Perry Wright
Leos are known for their fiery personalities and charisma. On the surface, Perry seems like a good husband and father. He displays the single-minded determination typical of a Leo, but he’s not afraid to be powerful and commanding – which, in his case, is a very severe fault.
While Perry is strong and brave, he’s too intent on dominating. To those who don’t know him well, he seems like a confident and natural leader, but the truth is he can’t accept that something is terribly wrong, and it’s in a Leo’s nature to struggle taking criticism. It should be noted that Perry’s violence is an extreme exaggeration of Leo’s traits.
VIRGO: Celeste Wright
Portrayed by Nicole Kidman, Celeste is a very logical, practical, and well put-together woman. Her carefully curated style grounds her in the material world, but not to an excessive degree. As a lawyer, she proves her incredible intellect and practical and logical thought processes.
Just like a Virgo, she’s very aware of details and uses them to defend herself and make sense of Jane’s confession about Perry. She’s also a very supportive, kind, gentle, and helpful mother and friend.
LIBRA: Chloe Mackenize
Even though she’s only six, Chloe is pretty confident with who she is. She certainly displays a Libra’s fondness for high art, the material world, and connoisseurship. Her charm makes her quite the people pleaser.
She can navigate any social situation she’s thrust into, including solving conflicts between her friends and family – because a Libra is defined by equilibrium.
SCORPIO: Bonnie Carlson
Bonnie displays Scorpio’s bravery, loyalty, and desire for honesty. An important part of her arc is her struggle with the truth about Perry’s death. This struggle stems from her deep and emotional personality.
Her presence is very powerful and demanding, yet somewhat mysterious to her friends and husband. She’s quite serious, especially when she’s alone, and can come across as intense. But she’s a natural leader, which is partly why she’s the one to push Perry down the stairs.
AQUARIUS: Dr. Amanda Reisman
Most people would consider a therapist to be a visionary, someone who is progressive and wants to enact positive change. But Dr. Reisman, like an Aquarius, is so hard to define that it’s almost impossible to say what she really wants. However, the fact that she defies categorization is exactly what an Aquarius is known for.
She’s also eccentric, intelligent, thrives on mental stimulation, and is seen to be compassionate and seek justice. In the end, she proves her ability to solve problems and think outside the box, but she can seem cold, condescending, and unpredictable – all Aquarius traits.
PISCES: Jane Chapman
Jane is a little more withdrawn and laid back than the other characters in Big Little Lies. She’s very agreeable but sometimes can get swept up in her own emotions.
As a mother and friend, she’s intensely loyal and caring and often takes on the role of the therapist when listening to Madeline and Celeste’s problems.
