What if the paladins’ zodiac signs are based on their elements?
Hear me out.
We already have Hunk, whose birthday is on January the 13th - making him a Capricorn. Capricorn is an earth sign, and the yellow lion is the guardian spirit of earth!
Shiro’s birthday is on February the 29th, making him a Pisces - the most spiritual of the signs.
If this pattern continues, we have 3 possibilities each for Keith, Lance and Pidge:
- Keith: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
- Lance: Pisces*, Cancer, Scorpio
- Pidge: Aquarius*, Gemini, Libra
(*not very likely, both would’ve been confirmed by now)
My guess for Keith is that he’s an Aries.
Aries are said to be brave, courageous, and trustworthy, but also fierce and impulsive.
They’re born leaders, always willing to take one for the team - but their stubbornness can sometimes cloud their judgement.
Keith has all these traits, as shown in “Across the Universe” and “The Blade of Marmora”. While he was able to pilot the Black Lion in order to save Shiro, he didn’t seem concerned about his own wellbeing in the slightest when he took quite the beating from those Marmora fighters.
Keith likes to push himself. But when a member of his team is in danger and he’s got to make a quick decision, he usually acts very level-headed.
When Allura was taken captive by Zarkon, he proposed to come up with a plan instead of rushing head first into battle, something he didn’t consider at all when he was fighting Zarkon one on one. While this may have seemed cold, it was - strategically speaking - the decision any experienced leader would have made.
And when Shiro was beginning to lose consciousness, Keith didn’t blindly rush to him in a weak attempt to take on those beasts by himself. Instead he placed everything on one card, asking the Black Lion for help.
And it worked. Because he knew what he was doing.
Lance doesn’t seem like a Scorpio at all, and if we rule out Pisces as a possibility, Cancer is the only sign left. And it fits:
People with the Cancer zodiac are sensitive, loyal, creative and spontaneous - but also naive and clingy.
It’s canon that Lance is very loyal to his teammates and friends, but he also likes to internalise his issues and has insecurities that gnaw at his confidence.

As for Pidge, I can see why one would argue that she’s a Libra - but I’m leaning more towards Gemini.
She’s quick-witted, adaptable and a fast learner, but indecisive and a bit of an overthinker at times. Her main goal is finding her brother and father. While this may motivate her and give her a reason to continue piloting the Green Lion, it is also her biggest weakness. I wouldn’t be surprised if the paladins’ enemies used Pidge’s family against her at some point in the future.
Her ability to figure out Olkarian technology in a split second and her eagerness to learn Altean has me convinced that she’s a Gemini. They’re said to be two-faced.
These are my guesses based on Season 1 & 2 and what little information we have on Hunk and Shiro. If you have any ideas or things that you’d like to point out, feel free to add on!
