Homeland is a thrilling show with some awesome characters. Who are you most like, based on your Zodiac sign?
Terrorism and espionage are two topics that Hollywood loves to explore and on the TV landscape, no show has done that better than Homeland. The series which ended in April after eight seasons often received plenty of praise and won several awards.
The lead actress Claire Danes won two Emmys for “Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series” out of five nominations. Several other cast members also received nominations for supporting roles. Given that there were so many interesting characters, here is an analysis of where each one of them fits in the zodiac.
Carrie Mathison – Aries
The show’s main protagonist was passionate about her job to the point of obsession. She’d do everything it takes to bring down a terrorist. She also showed plenty of determination in everything she did. When her colleagues brushed off a clue or lead, she kept on pursuing it.
Passion and determination are common traits of people whose zodiac is Aries. But they have weaknesses too such as constantly being impatient and moody. Carrie was never known to buy time. She always wanted something done immediately. She was also moody, by no fault of her own, but due to her bipolar disorder.
David Estes – Taurus
Estes was the director of the CIA’s Counterterrorism Center. Together with former CIA director Walden, he ordered a drone strike on Abu Nazir’s compound that ended up killing his son. He also never hesitated to do bad things for the greater good.
It was revealed that Estes’s marriage ended after he had an affair with Carrie. For this reason, he always held a grudge towards her and tried to undermine her despite the fact that she was always right. People with Taurus as their zodiac are stable and decisive but they tend to be stubborn too
Nicholas Brody – Gemini
It has been argued that Nicholas Brody’s death hurt the show. Damian Lewis was phenomenal in the role during the first three seasons. Like all Geminis, Brody was adaptable, given how he adapted to like under Abu Nazir’s capture and even began tutoring his son.
He was also affectionate, given his deep love for Carrie despite the fact that she was pursuing him. He also loved his daughter very much. But he had the Gemini weakness of indecisiveness too. He couldn’t decide whether he wanted to be a terrorist or a good guy.
Abu Nazir – Cancer
The operational leader of Al-Qaeda was highly persuasive. He convinced two US soldiers to turn into terrorists even after torturing them. He was tenacious too, judging from how focussed he was on staying in the US and risk getting caught instead of fleeing back to his homeland where he’d be safe.
His persuasiveness and tenacity make him a Cancer. He was also pessimistic and suspicious. More often than not, he suspected that Brody might be straying from the intended mission.
Elizabeth Keane – Leo
Keane was charming but also a no-nonsense president. She waged war against the intelligence community and they in turn waged war against her. Despite how passionate she was about her job, Keane was eventually forced to resign due to suggestions about colluding with the Russians.
Her stubbornness when dealing with the CIA and her generosity when it came to how she handled Saul make her a perfect Leo. Despite her few flaws, Keane was a decent president.
Saul Berenson – Virgo
Saul was Carrie’s CIA mentor and the only person who was a true friend to her. Despite throwing her under the bus on one or two occasions, he did it for the greater good and ensured no harm would come to her. He was analytical too and worked very hard at his job.
Hard work and loyalty are synonymous with Virgos. But Virgos also tend to criticize others and beat themselves up too much. They also work too hard and have little fun. This describes Saul perfectly. Not one moment was he ever seen having fun.
Jessica Brody – Libra
Libras are neither selfish nor too generous. They understand how to create the perfect balance. They also know how to relate well to others. Such is Jesicca’s description too. She waited for Brody for eight years and only got involved with another man when there was no hope of him coming back.
When Brody came back, she was willing to end her current relationship to start again with him. She was also willing to take him as he was, despite the fact that he was physically and emotionally damaged. This was a big compromise, a trait that Libras are known for.
Peter Quinn – Scorpio
Both as a CIA analyst and black ops operative, Peter Quinn was extremely resourceful. He always got the job done and this makes him a Scorpio. This is further emphasized by his bravery. He often put himself in dangerous situations.
One of his weaknesses was jealousy. He didn’t like Carrie’s relationship with Brody because deep down, he wanted her too. He eventually got to date her. He came off as secretive on a number of occasions too. For example, he and Estes were secretly planning to kill Brody.
Dana Brody – Sagittarius
Sagittarius people have been described as “the wild children of the zodiac.” They are curious, active, fierce, and adventurous. Dana, the teenage daughter of Nicholas and Jessica Brody, embodied all these characteristics. She enjoyed having fun, something which led her into trouble after she and her boyfriend hit a pedestrian while speeding.
Despite loving her father deeply, she was also curious about whether he really was a terrorist or not. It is her curiosity and demand for answers that even stopped her father from blowing himself up together with the Vice President.
Dar Adal – Capricon
Capricorns are said to be the most serious people. They are also determined and ambitious. Dar Adal came in to capture Brody as well as the Langley bomber and grew in prominence. He was also willing to kill Carrie since she wanted to stop the capture of the Langley bomber so that she’d use him to exonerate Brody.
Dar was always serious and ruthless. He was willing to do anything for the mission, including injecting Bordy with lethal drugs. He was the one who eventually orchestrated the killing of Brody after he ensured that Lockhart was given command of the CIA earlier.
Allison Carr – Aquarius
Most Aquarians tend to be rebels at heart. They are independent and do things in a manner that benefits them first. As the CIA station chief in Berlin, Carr was revealed by Carrie to be a double-agent who also worked for Russian intelligence.
She often found herself in a dilemma when Russian intelligence forced her to do things that didn’t sit well with her conscience. Her inability to pick a side eventually led to her death.
Mike Faber – Pisces
Pisces is the final sign of the Zodiac and people born under this constellation are known to be flirtatious, caring, and romantic. Mike fits right in. Mike was once Nick Brody’s best friend since they served in the army together. While Brody was away, he took care of his family and became a father figure to his children.
Due to his flirtatious ways, Brody’s wife Jessica ended up falling for him. Brody’s children also developed a deep connection with him and even when the turned veteran came back, they seemed to like Mike more since he was more available when needed.
