Ever since the silent black and white animated short film Steamboat Willie was released in 1928, Mickey Mouse has been a household name. And because Mickey and his friends have left an impression on us ever since, it’s time to discuss the classic Disney character that captures each zodiac sign the most. After all, these are characters most of us grew up with and characters many of us still can’t let go of as adults.
Disney is so iconic that seeing two small circles perched upon one bigger circle instantly makes you think of Mickey Mouse. This character is a quintessential part of American culture that takes you back to Saturday mornings spent watching cartoons and days at Disneyland you never want to end. However, Mickey Mouse is also symbolic of never giving up on your dreams, as Walt Disney had to struggle to make his cartoon creation a success. He initially wrote Mickey Mouse in a short film called Plane Crazy, which was dismissed by the studio. It was only six months later that everyone’s favorite anthropomorphic mouse made his comeback and official debut in Steamboat Willie, proving that you should never give up on the ideas you really believe in. You might just have the next Mickey Mouse on your hands.
The Classic Disney Character That Captures Each Zodiac Sign
If you’re curious about whether you have more in common with Minnie, Mickey, Goofy, or even Donald Duck, here’s the classic Disney character that resembles your zodiac sign:
Aries: You’re Max Goof
Aries are famous for being cool, cutting edge, and a little bit rebellious, just like Max Goof. Being the son of Goofy—Mickey Mouse’s best friend—comes with a lot of pressure, but Max refuses to let that get in the way of his style. Although Max loves his dad—who loves him so much in return—he still wants to do things his own way and leave his own mark on the world. An Aries would rather be banned from Disneyland than follow someone else’s lead and repress their authentic personality. At the end of the day, Aries is daring and independent, just like the teenage Max Goof.
Taurus: You’re Daisy Duck
Taurus is one of the most stylish, luxurious, and downright bossy of all zodiac signs. And if any Disney character comes with elegant and refined taste—along with a stubborn, sassy, and impossible-to-resist demeanor—it would have to be Daisy Duck. She’s the only character who can turn her boyfriend—the grumpy and feisty Donald Duck—into a total doormat. Even on his worst days, Donald can never stay mad at Daisy, because only a Taurus could keep such a curmudgeon on their toes.
Gemini: You’re Chip & Dale
Gemini has a reputation for being “two-faced”, but that’s underestimating their true power. This dualistic air sign is simply able to see both sides of a situation and is capable of changing their minds. Like Chip and Dale, there’s always two sides to a Gemini’s personality. And while Chip is safe, cautious, and more reasonable, Dale is more funny, laid-back, and rough around the edges. However, you can’t get one without the other, because Chip and Dale are a package-deal. The same goes for a Gemini, because they often have two contradictory personalities.
Cancer: You’re Huey, Dewy, & Louie
Cancer feels every mood, feeling, and emotion on the spectrum. Being ruled by the moon means they contain many different phases and shades to their character, often changing by the day. And although Donald Duck’s mischievous triplet nephews all look the same, they each have their own boisterous personalities. Cancers can relate to feeling like they’re Huey, Dewy, and Louie all at once. And because Cancer is also a cardinal water sign, they have no problem causing unnecessary drama and ruffling their uncle Donald Duck’s feathers, literally and figuratively speaking.
Leo: You’re Mickey Mouse
At his core, Mickey Mouse is kind, loyal, creative, and never afraid to express himself. A character who’s always willing to look on the bright side, Mickey radiates Leo energy in every possible way. When things go wrong, you can always rely on Mickey to lighten up the mood with his signature chuckle and enduring desire to make his friends feel better. After all, Leos love to sprinkle magic wherever they go, even when that magic can come across as “too much”. Let’s not forget his role in Fantasia (1940), when he enchanted all those broomsticks to mop the floors for him until the room started to flood. Sounds like a Leo who doesn’t know when it’s time to hold back.
Virgo: You’re Pluto
Pluto is the epitome of a loyal and reliable dog, and in astrology, Virgo is often associated with service animals. Pluto isn’t just any dog, but a dedicated sidekick to Mickey Mouse who supports his every decision and is able to get him help when he gets into trouble. Like a Virgo—a zodiac sign that often lets curiosity get the best of them—Pluto also has a tendency to get tangled up in drama. Luckily, his canine intelligence also helps him win every argument and his incredible sense of smell means means nothing gets past this Virgo.
Libra: You’re Minnie Mouse
Minnie Mouse radiates charm, sweetness, and flirtatiousness, just like a Libra. Ruled by Venus—planet of love—no zodiac sign is better at making friends and falling in love than a Libra, which is exactly what Minnie does best. I mean, who can’t help but love and adore Minnie Mouse? Not only does she always look like she’s still crushing on her husband Mickey Mouse, she also has an artistic personality. In fact, she was initially introduced as a musician, making her the classic air sign with plenty of creative talents to regale an audience.
Scorpio: You’re Donald Duck
Donald Duck is your classic Scorpio, as he’s easily frustrated, constantly moody, and definitely not afraid to tell everyone off. He’s always in the mood to prove himself and he always feels misunderstood, much like a Scorpio who just wants to feel seen. However, his brash and short-tempered personality is really just a cover for his tender, sweet, and sensitive side. Like every Scorpio, Donald’s “quack” is much worse than his bite. Donald becomes a total softie whenever his sweetheart Daisy is in the room.
Sagittarius: You’re Goofy
No zodiac sign has a better sense of humor than a Sagittarius. Ruled by Jupiter—planet of positivity and good vibes—Sagittarius just wants to laugh all day long and throw all their cares out the window. Sounds a lot like Goofy, doesn’t it? Sagittarius is also one of the most open-minded zodiac signs out there, and the truth is, none of us are sure whether Goofy is a dog or a mouse. And if Goofy is, in fact, a dog, why is he on equal terms with Mickey while Pluto is just his pet? Either way, it’s very Sagittarius for Goofy to be unclassifiable, as this mutable fire sign doesn’t like labels. They also don’t mind frustrating you with their conundrums.
Capricorn: You’re Scrooge McDuck
Capricorn screams wealth, success, and authority, much like Scrooge McDuck is arguably the most powerful and domineering character in the Disney universe. Named after Ebenezer Scrooge from A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, Mr. McDuck is a more light-hearted interpretation of money-making, as he’s a so-called “adventure-capitalist”. Unfortunately, he’s not so adventurous when it comes to spending his hard-earned money, as his penny-pinching proclivities reflect the way Capricorn would never take a risk that isn’t calculated.
Aquarius: You’re Ludwig Von Drake
If any zodiac sign radiates “hip, educated, and well-traveled uncle”, it would have to be Aquarius. As Donald Duck’s paternal uncle, Ludwig Von Drake has done it all. He’s a scientist, psychiatrist, professor, and self-proclaimed genius, much like an Aquarius who goes out of their way to be as eccentric and unique as possible. Like Aquarius, Ludwig has no problem going against the grain and standing out from a crowd of people who are trying desperately to fit in. Instead, Ludwig wants to be the most well-informed and authentic person in the room, much like an Aquarius on a mission.
Pisces: You’re Jiminy Cricket
Jiminy Cricket is the most spiritual, magical, and hopeful character in the Disney universe. Always appearing when a character needs a pep talk, Jiminy Cricket is here to remind you that when you wish upon a star, it truly makes no difference who you are. Having such a high level of empathy, intuition, and human insight makes Jiminy a Pisces through and through, as this mutable water sign is sensitive to the emotions of others and connected to the powers that be. If anyone is going to help you make a wish that will eventually come true, it would have to be a Pisces.
