The Wiz remains a classic tale for past and current generations. Each character possesses unique qualities that make viewers cherish them differently. Test your compatibility with the characters as 21Ninety rounds up which character aligns with each astrological element the most.

Air Signs: The Wiz

Gemini (May 20 to June 20), Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) and Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) fall into the category of air elements of the astrological signs. 

Although each air sign is different, they share similar characteristics that bind them together. People are born as one of the air signs are inherently curious, adventurous, intellectual and free-flowing. While some admire their ability to strike intriguing and deep conversations, there are downsides to these air signs. Overthinking, emotionally detached and indecisiveness are a few negative qualities these elements may hold.

The Wiz is the mighty Wizard of Oz that is admired by the fictional town’s citizens and who Dorothy is on a quest to find. He values power and status and remains in charge as people fear him. His strong ability to adapt to any situation and be quick-witted matches the traits of an air sign, especially Geminis. Geminis are social beings who can charm their way with people and change the direction of any situation.

Fire Signs: Scarecrow

Aries (March 21 to April 19), Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22) and Sagittarius (Nov. 22 – Dec. 21) are the fire signs.

These elements are known for the intensity of their passion, creativity, inspiration and being risk takers. Each zodiac sign possesses qualities of fury and fierceness, as noted in the “fiery” description. There is never a dull moment with these three. Similar to fire, these sign can create and destroy what lies ahead of them.

The Scarecrow would more than likely identify as a fire sign, especially a Sagittarius. This fire sign gravitates and thrives from learning and seeking knowledge. The Scarecrow wished for a brain to be smart. His desire is so strong that he dares to make a long journey with Dorothy, a person he does not know to fulfill his yearning for knowledge. 

Water Signs: Dorothy 

Cancer (June 20 to July 22), Pisces (Feb. 18 to March 19) and Scorpio (Oct. 22 to Nov. 21) are the water signs.

Water signs are in tune with their emotions, giving them a track record of being sensitive and emotional. They wear their hearts on their sleeve and make it known when feeling a certain way. These signs are also dreamers who often live inside their heads.

Dorothy would be a water sign, especially a Pisces. Her journey has more to do with finding the answers within herself, as she eventually discovers that she is the source of finding her way home. With her trek also being revealed as a dream, she aligns with the dreamer characteristic found among water signs.

Earth Signs: The Tin Man

Taurus (April 20 to May 20), Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) and Capricorn (Dec. 22 – Jan. 19) are earth signs.

Earth signs are more practical beings than any other zodiacs. They are loyal, reliable, protective and caring for those they love. The Tin Man closely aligns with an earth sign, especially a Taurus. Although he may be metal on the outside, he proves that his love for his newfound friends surpasses his hard shell.
