So i have just been informed that both the Hobbits (from the Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit prequel) are VIRGOS. Frodo and Bilbo Baggins share the same birthday – September 22.
YES that could make one or both of them a Libra, depending on the year and YES, these are birthdates on Middle Earth, which presumably has a different ephemeris and is, of course, fictional.
But Virgo resonates the most for me. Who the hell else would you trust on the big-time quests like these?! Competent and unassuming, completely adept at picking up on nuance and their very lack of pretense making them (sort of) immune to dark spells, ring wraiths and giant spiders.
An Aries would have sent all the grumbling dwarfs packing before even breaking camp. Sagittarius would PUT ON THE RING half an hour into the trip. Pisces & Gemini would say they dropped it into Mt Doom but then double back to try and buy out the elves or something.
The humble Hobbits as Virgos works for me. Tolkien was also, obviously, a keen scholar of Celtic mythology so perhaps he liked this date for its proximity to the Equinox. Sauron, a la Christianity’s Satan, is a fallen Elf/Angel and Gollum a totally fuqed up Hobbit.
The only other actual birth date mentioned in the whole deal is that of the hunky soldier-king-ranger Aragorn; Pisces. That works also – he does not like formal clothing and spends most of the books in camouflage, in love with an elf princess he cannot have. He comes and goes at odd times, on mysterious missions.
