I have now joined the bandwagon that is assigning fictional characters their zodiac signs. Let the games begin. Feel free to argue with me… it will only help my algorithm.
“Killing Eve” is a cat and mouse story based on the novella “Codename Villanelle” by Luke Jennings, and developed for TV by Phoebe Waller-Bridge. It stars the incomparable Sandra Oh as Eve, the passionate MI5/6 security officer, and the I-don’t-even-know-how-to-describe-her-brilliance-yet Jodie Comer as Villanelle. The most interesting woman (and assassin) in the whole damn universe.
Let’s start with Eve… she’s the title character in this version of the story after all.
I’ve given Eve a Pisces Sun because her intuition is what guides her almost 100% of the time. At her core (which is our sun sign) she is an intuitive. She goes with her gut feelings and adjusts to the tides. Sometimes she can’t even explain how or why she knows what Villanelle is up to, she just knows and she must follow her instincts to find her. Pisces also rules the planet Venus, and if we know our art history when it comes to Botticelli, we know his Birth of Venus painting suggests (by some), you guessed it, The Fall of Eve. I rest my case on her sun sign.
Here’s that Pisces intuition at work:
Eve’s rising sign is Gemini. I bestow this witty sign upon her because this is how the world sees her: Witty (who could forget her calling her boss a “dickswab”), charming, and LOVES to learn. Learning is super important to folks who have a rising sign in Gemini. If they can’t flex their curiosity, there really is no point in doing anything. Eve is always curious and willing to dig deeper, even into just a mere hunch.

And finally, I think Eve’s Moon sign is in Scorpio. Here is where all that sexy Eve-biz lies. It’s also, in my opinion, the KEY with a capital K-E-Y to her and Villanelle’s connection with each other (notice I didn’t use the term attraction). This is a C-O-N-N-E-C-T-I-O-N. Scorpio Moons are all about commitment, fear of betrayal, testing their loved ones, and their ability to see right through a person unlike anyone else. And I actually think they both have it (spoiler alert), and for the same reasons. I’ll add a little more to this when we get to Villanelle’s Moon in Scorpio. Hang tight!

Now let’s go to Villanelle. Oh my. Before I get into it I just have to say that, to me, she is almost all fire. An astrological WILD FIRE at that, with a tich of water that makes things steam and sizzle a bit.
Aries Sun right off the bat. She has 0% fear and is 100% action, spared no expense. She’s impatient, restless, gets bored easily, and loves a challenge. Aries Sun folks also have a very playful/childlike demeanor, and she often displays this in the series with her outfits and interactions with Konstantin and other children.
When it comes to her rising sign, which is how others see us, I see her as Leo Rising. Extravagant costumes, creative and theatrical kills, and those eyes she makes at her prey. One just can’t deny that there is Leo in this Lioness. Protective of her people, but at the same time, feral to the point where she might kill them too. You just never know… depends on how hungry she is, perhaps.

Also… how Scorpio is this outfit?
