SNES ASTROLOGY

Thirty, flirty and thriving! Thirty years ago this month the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, or SNES, debuted in North America. This brought fan favourites to a new and improved gaming system, and introduced some new games into the mix. Are you ready to meet your SNES counterpart?

Aries

Super Mario is jumping mid-air over a flying Koopa towards a slanted column extending outward from the ground

Mario
Super Mario World

It's no surprise that you're Mario, Aries! Much like everyone's favourite mustachioed plumber, you tend not to let anything stop you. No man, nor dragon, can stand in the way of you and your goals. Whether it's first place in the race or saving your pals - you'd rather no one told you the odds. 

Taurus

Clyde is making a path toward Pac-Man from the bottom of the maze to stop him from completing the level

Clyde
Pac-Man

Willing to work hard towards what you want, you're clearly Clyde! In the face of adversity, or rather, a hungry, yellow man, you refuse to buckle under pressure. Your friends know they can count on you in any situation to stay on track and keep your eye on the prize.

Gemini

Oolong encounters something unpleasant and looks alarmed

Oolong
Dragon Ball Z: Shrenron no Nazo

Your ability to adapt to situations and surroundings make you just like Bulma and Goku's plucky sidekick, Oolong! You're clever and quick on your feet making you reliable in a pinch. Though you often act on impulse, there is no shortage of fun with you around.

Cancer

Bowser floats towards Mario, who is using the Magic Cape, in the Koopa Clown Car in the early stages of a face off. Mechakoopas bounce below

Bowser
Super Mario World

Much like Bowser, you would do anything to protect the ones you love. Whether you're getting the kids (all 8 of them) involved, or thwarting the race plans of all of your foes, you demonstrate your ability to harness your emotions into the success you seek. 

Leo

Link exits onto the front path of Hyrule Castle

Link
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past 

Jus Link your friends know they can always depend on you when stuff gets tough, Leo. Your lust for life makes you the best adventure companion possible, and your loyalty shows your loved ones that they will always come first, especially when the kingdom is under siege. 

Virgo

Princess Zelda greets Link from her Throne at Hyrule Castle

Princess Zelda
The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past

You and Princess Zelda are living on the same level, Virgo! You show kindness to those who cross your path, and lead with compassion and sympathy. When things go askew, you are quick on your feet, but you'll never let anyone see you sweat. 

Libra

All of the Yoshi's on Yoshi Island greet baby Mario in the forest.

Yoshi
Yoshi's Island

Outgoing and friendly, like everyone's favourite right-hand man - Yoshi! You help to keep the peace and maintain harmony, even if it means consuming the enemy. Not to mention you are everyone's Mario Kart main, can we get a mlem!? 

Scorpio

Indiana Jones runs through the Temple of Doom as a boulder is hot on his heels

Indiana Jones
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

Who better encapsulates all things Scorpio than the one and only Indiana Jones! Bravery and determination ooze from you and are two of your most admirable traits. Your ambition takes you towards experiences both ordinary and extraordinary, whether it's digging into new discoveries or exploring hidden temples. 

Sagittarius

Chun Li and Cammy are in position to begin their fight at Suzaku Castle

Chun Li
Street Fighter II

You're tough as nails and sharp as a tack - just like Chun Li! Your competitive edge reminds those who know you AND those who don't that you are not to be messed with. There is always more to meets the eye with you, Sagittarius! Even when the likes of Ryu tries to stop you, you face the challenge head on. 

Capricorn

Mega Man faces off against a Bee Blader. It is the beginning of the round, they are on a rail above Mega City

Mega Man
Mega Man X

You have huge goals and your ambition is what helps you to overcome the challenges. Like Mega Man - your willingness to engage with new opportunities can often change the course of your life for the better, but you don't always see those benefits for yourself until you see them in others. 

Aquarius

kirby stands looking confused with a Link hat on near a star door

Kirby
Kirby Super Star

Your sunny disposition and usual calm demeanour - you're just like Kirby! You view the world as a glass half full, but when someone crosses a line they should be prepared to feel your wrath. You'll fight for Planet Popstar with your whole chest and stomach!

Pisces

toad stands on a metal block looking around at various dangerous floating objects

Toad
Super Mario Bros. 2

Like Toad, you bring joy to those around you with your antics, but your empathic nature makes you susceptible to soaking up their feelings. You often act on emotion; throwing a mushroom into the mix at times that seem inopportune, but your friends know they can count on you no matter what.
