In the Disney+ erratic ensemble house party “Encanto,” bespectacled protagonist Mirabel sings of her nearest and dearest: “This is my family — a perfect constellation. So many stars and everybody gets to shine.”

Leave it to an Aries like Pedro to fall in love at first sight by firelight. Aries are known as much for their impulsivity as their valor, fitting for the heroic, self-sacrificing patriarch of the Madrigal family. A cardinal fire sign, the spirit of Pedro lives on in the still-burning flame of a magical candle.
Food is the love language of Taurus Julieta. Walt Disney Co./Courtesy Everett Collection
Gifted with the ability to cure through cooking, Julieta is a total Taurus. A somewhat stoic earth sign, Taurus shows love in pragmatic, tactile ways and believes deeply in the power of food to restore a person’s mind, body and spirit. Fittingly, Julieta expresses her very practical magic and demonstrates the love she feels for her family through the meals she prepares for them. Who but a bull could cure a deep cut with a fresh arepa con queso?

Represented by the twins, the inherent duality of Gemini nature allows natives to function as mirrors to others, a service provided with a flourish by shapeshifting middle child Camilo.

The emotional instability of Cancer folks makes being around them feel very much like standing without cover in inclement weather. A fact that makes tempestuous Pepa the soggy mascot of this Cardinal water sign.

A good-looking, loud-talking mama’s boy with “so much love to give,” Mariano is all Leo. A die-hard romantic, he writes poetry and has virtually no chill when it comes to starting or permanently committing to a relationship, all indicators of his place within the lion pride.
Astrology 101: Your guide to the stars
Caring and self-critical, Mirabel is a classic Virgo.Walt Disney Co./Courtesy Everett Collection
Deeply caring, chronically underestimated and adept enough with a needle and thread to hand-stitch a stuffed jaguar, Mirabel is a virtuous Virgo. Stephanie Beatriz, who voices the character of Mirabel, describes her as “headstrong yet unsure, full of wonder and imagination but sometimes held back by self-doubt. She’s funny, awkward and brave.” All hallmarks of the Virgo disposition.

Pretty on purpose and vapid by virtue, Isabelle is big-time Libra vibes. People-pleasing to a fault, Isabela comes into her own when she begins to prioritize the way things feel over the way things look. Cue our girl becoming an actualized Libra, balancing the scales by choosing succulents over roses and her true self over the basic part she has grown accustomed to playing.
Scorpio: Alma Ebuela

Clad in dark colors and clinging to the past, Alma is a prototypical Scorpio. This fixed water sign is skilled at leveraging the skills of others for personal and collective benefit, a quality expressed in Alma’s investment in her children and grandchildren’s gifts. At points manipulative and mean, Alma trades in the lower expressions of her sign but by the film’s end she comes to understand the true lesson of Scorpio: death and surrender bring growth and expansion.
Sagittarius whistleblower Dolores listens closely for whispers, rumors, half-truths and spilled tea.Walt Disney Co./Courtesy Everett Collection
Wielding the truth like a blunt force object we have Dolores, suspected Sagittarius and the unmuted mouthpiece of the Madrigal family. The sole subject Dolores keeps quiet about is her love for Mariano Guzmán. Oddly honorable, it tracks that a Sagittarius wouldn’t step out with a dude until her sister had firmly decided to be done with him, preferring as they do to not only speak the truth but live it.
Ruled by Saturn, Capricorns like Louisa are the hardest-working and longest-suffering zodiac sign.Walt Disney Co./Courtesy Everett Collection
Convinced it is her duty to carry the proverbial weight of the world and willing to suffer as a means of proving her devotion, Louisa is a textbook Capricorn. Ever trying to hold it together while falling apart, it takes a donkey kick into a hammock to make Louisa relax. She ultimately learns, as all Capricorns must, that her worth is not tied to what she can provide or produce.
Cape-wearing, crack-avoiding, alter-ego-creating, apex Aquarius Bruno Madrigal. Walt Disney Co./Courtesy Everett Collection
Ruled by two planets, stern Saturn and rebellious Uranus, Aquarius is the domain of the fanatic disruptor. A fixed air sign, Aquarians hold tight to their ideas and ideals, often at their own peril. Enter Bruno. A cape-wielding visionary, he can’t help but be himself and speak his truth even if that means he has to live in the walls, keep the company of mice and suffer the scorn of his family.

When we first meet Antonio, he is hiding under his bed, avoiding his own party — perhaps the most Piscean first impression of all time. Faced with their prodigious feels and fears, Pisces is the sign most likely to turn tail or find cover. Peaceful Pisces is resistant to conflict and thus it tracks that he would fall in with other species as a means to escape his family. With his gentle nature, Antonio gains the trust of animals who feel safe enough to commune with him.
