Aries
(March 21–April 19)
Daddy Warbucks from Annie
Those born under the sign of Aries are known for being fiery, independent, and natural leaders—it's only those closest to them that discover their softer, more sentimental side. Much like Annie's Daddy Warbucks, Aries may seem rigid in their beliefs and goal-oriented at all costs, but sometimes they can't help but be charmed by someone (say, a plucky young orphan) who reminds them to take pleasure in the simple things in life and look forward to a brighter tomorrow.

Taurus
(April 20–May 20)
Kevin Rosario from In The Heights
If you're a Taurus, you practical, grounded and are not afraid of hard work. Your commitment to responsibility may have some seeing you as stubborn, but you know that the fruits of your labor are worth whatever sacrifices you have to make. In The Heights' Kevin Rosario, from a very young age, has been devoted to pursuing a better life, and goes to great lengths to ensure his daughter Nina can achieve her own goals—and maybe even change the world someday.

Gemini
(May 21–June 20)
Mr. Heere from Be More Chill
While Geminis are often noted as switching moods quickly, it's only because they are very adaptable and can see situations from both perspectives. Geminis are also sensitive, gentle, and extremely affectionate towards those they love. You can see Be More Chill's Mr. Heere loves his son Jeremy and will do anything to protect him. When he feels like Jeremy is slipping away, he swiftly jumps into his pants (and into dad mode) to rescue him.

Cancer
(June 21–July 22)
Sam Carmichael, Bill Austin, and Harry Bright from Mamma Mia!
Cancers are known for their generosity of spirit, their love of family (whether biological or found), and their extreme empathy. The three dads in Mamma Mia! (roguish Sam, adventurous Bill, and straight-laced Harry) most embody the Cancer spirit, because despite their radically different personalities and approaches to life, they manage to become fast-friends and eventually co-dads, bonded by their love of their daughter Sophie and affection for their shared-ex, Donna.

Leo
(July 23–August 22)
Harry Potter from Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, Parts I and II
Represented by the lion, Leos are brave, natural-born leaders. It's no coincidence that Harry Potter, who chose to be in Gryffindor—also represented by a lion—was born on July 31. Harry Potter as a dad on the stage is just as loyal and fearless as he is in the books—charging forward to stand up for what is right and protect his loved ones.

Virgo
(August 23–September 22)
Captain Georg von Trapp from The Sound of Music
Virgos love to make things the best they can be, and are willing to put in the hard work to do so, which means their expectations for others can also be very high. Virgos are smart, quick-witted, and exacting, much like The Sound of Music's Captain von Trapp. A natural leader, he keeps a tight structure for his seven children, but eventually gives in to showing his softer, more vulnerable side.

Libra
(September 23–October 22)
Tevye from Fiddler on the Roof
The sign of Libra is represented by the symbol of scales, which taps into a Libra's need for balance, justice, and harmony. They value intellectual discussion if it means they'll become more enlightened by the end of it. Fiddler on the Roof 's Tevye keeps a fair and balanced mind, often negotiating with himself and God, as he navigates the changes happening within his family and little village of Anatevka.

Scorpio
(October 23–November 21)
Jean Valjean from Les Misérables
Scorpios are fiercely loyal and protective—there's nothing on earth they won't do for the well-being of those they love best, even if it comes at great personal cost. Les Misérables protagonist Jean Valjean most embodies the Scorpio spirit in his tireless commitment to honoring his promise to love and raise Cosette as his own, and in his willingness to sacrifice himself to reunite her with her true love Marius.

Sagittarius
(November 22–December 21)
Mufasa from The Lion King
Curious and open-minded, Sagittarians ignite a fire in others to explore the world and tap into their own personal sense of freedom. They love to have fun and are protective of those they love. Mufasa, King of the Pride Lands, does so with great gusto—even in the afterlife. He establishes a legacy of courage and to always "remember who you are."

Capricorn
(December 22–January 19)
Alexander Hamilton from Hamilton
Capricorns, the most ambitious and disciplined sign of the zodiac, are notorious for focusing on achieving their goals and climbing the next mountain in their career. Hamilton is a true Capricorn not only in his career, ("Hamilton wrote the other 51!"), but also with his family—like rooting Phillip on as he learns to count to five in French. Capricorns bring their steadfast work ethic to supporting and loving their family, because no one will cheer on your success like a Capricorn.

Aquarius
(January 20–February 18)
Maurice from Beauty and the Beast
Aquarians are known for being quirky, creative, and for thinking outside the box—even if other people think their ideas are a bit "odd." Much like Belle's father Maurice in Beauty and the Beast, the only things Aquarians are more devoted to than their creative projects are their friends and family.

Pisces
(February 19–March 20)
Sweeney Todd from Sweeney Todd
Sensitive, passionate, and idealistic, no sign loves harder than a Pisces—much like the titular character in the musical Sweeney Todd. Sweeney is willing to go to the ends of the earth to recover his missing daughter Joanna and seek revenge against the man who destroyed his family—but in true Pisces fashion, he gets swept up in his emotions and a bit overzealous in his quest to find justice.
