‘Sex and the City’: Were Carrie and Mr. Big Compatible Based on Their Zodiac Signs?

Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big were the ultimate Sex and the City couple. Mr. Big was introduced as Carrie’s love interest in season 1. While she dated multiple men, a couple very seriously, Mr. Big was always somewhere in the background. When a television couple is so drawn to one another, we can’t help but wonder what brought them back together again and again. Maybe it was written in the stars. So, were Carrie and Mr. Big compatible based on their zodiac signs? Let’s find out.

What is Carrie Bradshaw’s zodiac sign?

Sex and the City writers were careful not to include important dates in the original series. In fact, during the show’s six-season run, the writers acknowledged very few holidays. Birthdays, however, were a different story. While we saw Carrie celebrate her disappointing 35th birthday on the series, we are just now learning her actual birthday. According to the New York Post, the show’s creators revealed that Carrie was born on October 10, 1966.

Carrie’s October birthday makes her a Libra. According to Allure, Libras are generally fixated on creating balance, harmony, and love an aesthetically pleasing environment. Libras also take great pleasure in companionship, both romantic and platonic. Relationships are their top priority. Carrie, in a lot of ways, fits her star sign perfectly. She valued her friendships above all else and actively sought out romantic partnerships. Her attention to detail when it came to fashion aligns with a Libra’s interest in aesthetics.

What does Mr. Big’s zodiac sign say about him?

Mr. Big was a fair bit older than Carrie Bradshaw when the couple met. Fans were clued into that fairly early on in their relationship. Still, his actual birthday was a mystery for most of Sex and the City. According to Fandom, the enigma that was Mr. Big was born on April 7, 1955. His early April birthday makes him an Aries.

Those born under Aries are motivated, ambitious, and born leaders. They are also known for being a bit self-centered. Mr. Big was successful and motivated to succeed. He, however, could be a bit too selfish. His inability to factor her in often led to problems with Carrie, who was desperate to build a life with him.

Are Carrie and Mr. Big compatible based on their star signs?

Carrie and Mr. Big’s love story was considered the focal point of Sex and the City. Not all fans agree that the duo belonged together, though. While Mr. Big and Carrie did end up together before his death in the first episode of And Just Like That…, we can’t help but wonder if the two were compatible based on their star signs.

So, were Carrie and Mr. Big fated to be together? According to Bustle, Aries and Libras can make a great match, but the relationship will never be without problems. Because the two signs are on opposite ends of the zodiac chart, they have contrasting personalities and often run into communication issues. Failures in communication and understanding each other’s priorities were a major theme in Carrie and Mr. Big’s relationship. Still, they were drawn to each other. Just like Libras and Aries are in real life.
