The classic TV mom stereotype has been around since the invention of the television. Here’s how these TV matriarchs match with the zodiac signs.
The classic TV mom stereotype has been around since the invention of the television. In the early years of TV, audiences watched characters like June Cleaver and Lucy Ricardo. Then, as television became more accessible and more shows were being made, viewers fell in love with Peggy Bundy and Clair Huxtable.
Over the years, television has become saturated with content, but the “mom” character has appeared over and over again in many different ways, showing the versatility of the stereotype and creating mom-like characters every television lover can relate to. Which of some of the most favorite mom characters are you based on your zodiac sign?
Aries: Kristina Braverman, Parenthood
Kristina Braverman on NBC’s hit television family drama, Parenthood, is a very strong woman. She is the mother to a teenage daughter Haddie, and her autistic son, Max, and in true Aries fashion, she is able to roll with all of life’s punches, even a breast cancer diagnosis.
Kristina also doesn’t shy away from her emotions and expresses herself freely, another quality that most Aries women share.
Taurus: Judy Gellar, Friends
The Taurus sign is very practical, responsible, and stable. People born under this sign like structure and believe that everyone has a role in life and they should stick to that role and do it as best they can.
Judy, Ross, and Monica’s mother on the hit sitcom, Friends, is definitely a Taurus. She is a very responsible and stable mother and also sees her children as very specific people and expects certain things from them based on how she perceives them, a true Taurus quality.
Gemini: Moira Rose, Schitt’s Creek
The Gemini sign is the most adaptable sign in the zodiac, which means Moira Rose from Schitt’s Creek must be a Gemini. When Moira’s luxurious life is uprooted and she’s forced to move into a small town, leaving most of her material possessions behind, she initially fights her new life.
It doesn’t take long for her Gemini characteristics to kick in and for Moira to be able to adjust to and embrace her new way of living, while still staying true to her authentic self.
Cancer: Frankie, Grace And Frankie
People born under the Cancer sign have some of the best imaginations out of all the signs in the zodiac. Frankie on the Netflix original series, Grace And Frankie is definitely a Cancer.
Not only does she have a great imagination, but she is also very persuasive, which is another quality specific to the Cancer sign. When Frankie gets an idea, it’s almost impossible to talk her out of it and she’s very good at getting others to join her in whatever it is she is scheming.
Leo: Beverly Goldberg, The Goldbergs
The Leo sign is one of the funniest signs in the zodiac and people born under this sign have a great sense of humor. Beverly Goldberg, the matriarch of the Goldberg family in ABC’s hit sitcom, The Goldbergs, is hysterical.
Not only does Beverly have some very quotable one-liners throughout the series, but she also has a Leo’s ability to laugh at herself and find the humor in any situation.
Virgo: Meredith Grey, Grey’s Anatomy
The Virgo sign is an all work and no play sign. People born under this sign are very focused on their careers and it takes a lot to get them to switch focus or seeing anything outside of their work goals.
Meredith Grey is clearly a Virgo, and it takes meeting the love of her life and starting a family for her to realize there is more to life than surgery. Virgos can find a balance between their work and their personal lives and they do it quite well when they have to.
Libra: Joyce Summers, Buffy The Vampire Slayer
The Libra sign wants peace and harmony in their life, especially at home with their family. Joyce Summers, Buffy’s mom in the ’90s hit series, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, works very hard to maintain peace in her home as a single mother, but she struggles because her daughter is the Chosen One who must fight vampires and other forces of darkness.
Trying to maintain peace around so much chaos is difficult for Joyce, but she does her best and is successful at bringing some harmony to her and Buffy’s home.
Scorpio: Carmela Soprano, The Sopranos
The Scorpio sign is resourceful and brave. This sign doesn’t scare easily, as Carmela Soprano, the matriarch in The Sopranos, proves throughout this series.
Carmela also shows some of her Scorpio weaknesses in the way she doesn’t trust people easily and doesn’t shy away from violence if the situation calls for it. Carmela is also very stubborn and very passionate, which she shows in the way she’s able to stand her ground with her husband, Tony, despite his ups and downs.
Sagittarius: Rainbow Johnson, Black-Ish
The Sagittarius sign is another sign who enjoys humor and loves to laugh. This sign is also very generous, which is a great quality for any mother to have, and one mother who shows her generosity often is Rainbow Johnson on the sitcom, Black-ish.
Not only do people born under the Sagittarius sign make others around them laugh, but they also have a lot of energy that is contagious, so being around them is fun, especially after a long day at work or at school.
Capricorn: Madeline Mackenzie, Big Little Lies
The Capricorn sign is very organized and people born under this sign make great leaders and managers because they thrive on structure.
Madeline Mackenzie as a lot to balance on HBO’s dramatic series, Big Little Lies. Between her home life, her social life, and maintaining her perfect mom exterior, it seems overwhelming, but Madeline is clearly a Capricorn in the way she is able to handle everything with ease and grace. She is also not afraid to delegate when she needs to, which is another trait of a Capricorn.
Aquarius: Lorelei Gilmore, Gilmore Girls
The Aquarius sign is the most independent sign in the zodiac. No other mom on television is quite as independent, though sometimes overly so, as Lorelei Gilmore on Gilmore Girls. When Lorelei gets pregnant at the age of sixteen, she moves out of her wealthy family’s big home and gets a job to support herself and her daughter.
Not only is Lorelei an Aquarius due to her independence, but she genuinely enjoys helping other people around her, which is another wonderful trait that most people born under the Aquarius sign share.
Pisces: Rebecca Pearson, This Is Us
The Pisces sign is a gentle sign. This sign has a natural ability to nurture, which is why mother to three small children, Rebecca Pearson, must be a Pisces.
Not only is Rebecca gentle and naturally maternal, but she also has amazing musical gifts. Rebecca’s love for her music and her ability to perform with ease and have so much talent is also a clear sign that she is a Pisces because people born under the Pisces sign have a lot of innate musical talent.
