Gilligan’s Island was a family favorite in the 1960s starring a cast of people who were shipwrecked on an island. For a fun topic, we figured we’d go over what each of the actor’s Zodiac signs would fit each character according to their definitions over on this page: Astronlogia.com/astrological-zodiac-signs
Astrological Sign: Sagittarius
Gilligan is a definite Sagittarius. These people are known for wholeheartedly throwing themselves into life. The Sagittarius inspires others to chase their dreams and take risks and Gilligan was always the one out there on the island positive that they could and would succeed! We could all take a lesson from his constant optimism and innocence and use it in how we approach the world.
Astrological Sign: Cancer
It may seem wrong to identify The Skipper as a Cancer, but when you think about it it just makes sense. Cancer’s purpose in life is to provide home, to give those they care about a place to rest and be safe. The Skipper took his self-ordained role as the leader and therefore protector of the survivors very seriously. He worked hard and without rest to provide them with the things they needed while still trying to find a way to repair his boat and get them home. Like a true Cancer he simply wants those he cares about to be happy, healthy and know that they have a home.
Thurston Howell III
Astrological Sign: Aries
Aries is the sign of those who pioneer and trail blaze, those who throw themselves into a new venture and idea without hesitation and even when they fail will bounce back and simply try again with something new! Mr. Howell is a true Aries, willing to risk his fortune for any new idea that he thinks will take off, while supported by his wife. He is always able to bounce back, never one to be kept down for long even when idea after idea fails. This is why he didn’t really suffer when he lost money in the stock market. He knew that in the end, he would come out on top!
Astrological Sign: Taurus
Taurus love the earthly pleasures of life, are steady and supportive, and give those they love and care about the strength and energy to do what they want to do. Lovey is no different. She fully supports Mr. Howell’s crazy ideas, encourages him to go for broke and risk it all, but definitely wants the finer things in life (even while trapped on a deserted island with few fine things to speak of).
Astrological Sign: Libra
Libra is the great balancer, seeking to bring those around them peace, harmony and cooperation, but they do it with style and grace. No one could say that actress Ginger was anything other than stylish and graceful. And she was a Libra. She wanted everyone to be happy and at peace, especially if they were admiring her. Libra’s are guided by the scales and always want those around them to be level and calm.
Astrological Sign: Capricorn
Capricorn is the planner, structured and full of goals that they have the drive to complete and this is the Professor to a ‘T’. He is constantly working on new and different ways to improve the lives of those on the island so that they can enjoy as close to modern conveniences. He is best at making the best of a bad situation.
Mary Ann Summers
Astrological Sign: Virgo
The Virgo is the teacher and worker, always striving to put others and even the planet above themselves and Mary Ann is no different. She strives to make sure the needs of the others on the island are met and that they are never left wanting for anything. She does what’s needed without complaining, happy to serve the needs of those around her.
