Season 5 of Yellowstone has been off to an eventful start, with Dutton family patriarch, John, being sworn in as the new Governor of Montana and Warner doing her best to prevent the Duttons from discarding her Market Equities plan for Yellowstone Valley.
With most of the season's episodes yet to air, fans will be thrilled about getting to see their favorite characters for the next couple of weeks, especially since most of these characters happen to be very relatable. But which mannerisms do the characters share with fans? The answers are in the zodiac signs.
Aries – Kayce Dutton
The Aries sign is full of brave, competitive, and passionate people. These individuals also have a tendency of being reckless, impatient, and impulsive and on the show, such attributes fit John’s son, Kayce.
As a former member of the US military’s most elite unit, the Navy SEALs, there are no questions about Kayce’s courage. His daredevilry is also seen during the gunfight between the Livestock Association agents and the reservation law enforcement. Additionally, Kayce is so passionate about cattle ranching that he gladly becomes the commissioner of the Livestock Association. However, he often jumps into situations without thinking, something that’s clear when he decides to run for Governor despite only being the commissioner for a short while. The plan thus fails.
Taurus – Rip Wheeler
Taurus members are known to be dependable, just like the farm hand, Rip Wheeler. They are loyal, practical, and dedicated too but can also be naive, stubborn, and obsessive.
Rip handles every situation in the most practical way possible and since he can always be counted on to do the right thing, John often tells him to “do what is best for the ranch,” which has become one of the best Yellowstone catchphrases. Still, Rip often comes off as naive by doing dirty work for John without fully understanding what’s at stake.
Gemini – Jamie Dutton
Geminis are adaptable, innovative, charming, and funny. Apart from that, they are characterized by inconsistency and restlessness. In the series, John’s adopted son, Jamie, has most of these traits.
An adopted child, Jamie fully immerses himself in the Dutton family culture, becoming no different from the rest of John’s children. As an attorney, he has proven himself as one of the smartest Yellowstone characters and always manages to come up with ways to get his father out of legal quagmires. However, he often shocks fans by committing heinous acts, such as when he kills a reporter.
Cancer – Beth Dutton
Cancer is sometimes referred to as “The Mother of the Zodiac” and that’s because its members are caring, loving, and compassionate in the same manner as Beth is. But these traits become intense items, resulting in Cancers being possessive.
Beth’s major Cancer characteristic is seen in how protective over her father. To her, he can do no wrong. As for possessiveness, it isn’t just about her father but the land too, so much that she sabotages Market Equities’ leasing plans by painting the owners as villainous to the press.
Leo – Senator Lynelle Perry
Leos are ever confident, proactive, and optimistic and confident. However, they can have a self-centered streak and be aggressive when provoked. On the show, Lynelle is the quintessential Leo.
Perry’s confidence makes her popular not only with citizens but also those within the political circle. As such, her transition from Governor to Senator is an easy one. She and John also make one of the best Yellowstone couples but she always tries to push his agenda so intensely, resulting in undesired outcomes.
Virgo – Jimmy Hurdstram
Virgos are workaholics like Yellowstone's Jimmy. They are very analytical too but on the negative side, they tend to be rigid about their views and beliefs.
There is nothing Jimmy enjoys more than doing his job. And instead of diving into merriment like the rest of the farm hands like to do during their free time, Jimmy prefers to participate in rodeos in order to make more money. Few have had any kind of luck trying to convince Jimmy to do anything too.
Libra – Lloyd Pierce
Like Lloyd, Libras are friendly and diplomatic. They are, therefore, known to be good team players. However, on their bad days, they can be self-indulgent and intolerant of others.
There’s a good reason why Lloyd has been at the ranch longer than any other hand. He works extremely well with others hence no one ever tries to backstab him. But he is no saint. His proclivity to enforce his principles on others has led to him being involved in a couple of fights.
Scorpio – Dan Jenkins
Scorpios are self-driven, determined, opportunistic, and intuitive. Conversely, they are ruthless when they need to be with a mean streak that can get the better of them, attributes that perfectly sum up the billionaire land developer, Dan.
The billionaire is quick to spot the land at Yellowstone Dutton Ranch and wastes no time in trying to acquire it in order to build a casino. And he doesn’t go about it the diplomatic way, instead making all kinds of efforts to destroy John and his family. This makes him one of the least likable Yellowstone characters.
Sagittarius – Carter
Sagittarians are adventurous and chatty, but at the same time, they can be cunning and overconfident. In Yellowstone, there is no better Sagittarian than Carter.
Carter is adventurous, but not always in a good good way since he enjoys committing all sorts of petty crimes. The reason he gets caught a lot is that his confidence eclipses his ability to plan properly. In spite of that, Carter is a fun teenager and always talkative.
Capricorn – John Dutton III,
Capricorns are great at planning, advising, enforcing, and guiding. For this reason, they make brilliant leaders, just like John. But at the same time, their self-assuredness can lead them to condescend to those around them.
John’s leadership skills enable him to rise from the owner of the largest contiguous ranch in the US to a Governor. Whether it’s making business decisions or handling members of his own family, he does so with authority. But John is harsh too, that's why he clashes with the likes of Lloyd and Jamie.
Aquarius – Chief Thomas Rainwater
Aquarius is the “The Smart Zodiac Sign” because its members are wise and progressive. Many humanitarians belong to the sign too. Contrariwise, Aquarians are rebellious and pessimistic. On the show, the most fitting Aquarian is the chief.
The Broken Rock Reservation chief’s desire to reclaim the land of his ancestors underscores his progressive nature as he doesn’t consider it fair for people with European ancestors to enjoy all the perks. He also forms all the right alliances to make this happen. Doing all this also highlights his rebellious nature.
Pisces – Monica Dutton
Known as one of the most artistic signs, Pisces has members that are artistic, creative, and good-hearted. However, they can be indecisive and sensitive too, traits commonly seen in Monica Dutton.
Monica’s artistic nature is evident through her love for history, and she is more than happy to teach it in schools, even without pay. She is also shown to care about Native Americans more than her fellow Duttons. As for her indecisiveness, it’s best seen through her love life. Despite her feeling for Kayce, she has a fling with Martin.
