Although the films are about dinosaurs, the human characters in the Jurassic Park franchise are equally important to the beloved stories. Of course, there are the main protagonists doing everything they can to survive or even protect themselves from the prehistoric creatures, and there are the villains, who frequently meet a gruesome end at the hands of the dinosaurs’ teeth and claws.
Regardless, each of these human characters has a unique personality, goals, and temperament, just like the dinosaurs. As a result, there will undoubtedly be one human character in Jurassic Park who corresponds to each individual sign of the zodiac.
Aries – Tim Murphy
Tim is John Hammond’s young grandson, who has come to see the new Jurassic Park with his sister Lex. He has a thing for dinosaurs and takes a shine to Alan, much to Alan’s dismay at first. Over the course of the film, the gruff paleontologist warms up to the two children.
Tim’s passion and energy are more obvious than other characters’ because he is a young boy, as is his eagerness to meet his hero. As a result, Tim, with his youthful fascination with dinosaurs, is an excellent match for Aries.
Taurus – Owen Grady
Owen Grady, played by Chris Pratt, is the male protagonist of the Jurassic World trilogy. When the Jurassic World theme park was still open, Owen was a skilled velociraptor trainer, and he is called upon again when the vicious Indominus Rex presumably escapes her paddock.
Owen is a physically and mentally strong individual who is extremely dependable no matter what the situation is, even if he can be stubborn, especially when it comes to his personal relationship with Claire. Owen is well-suited to represent Taurus because of these qualities.
Gemini – Dr. Ellie Sattler
Dr. Ellie Sattler, a paleobotanist (played by Laura Dern), is the main female protagonist in the first Jurassic Park film. Ellie, along with Alan and Ian, will appear in the Jurassic World trilogy’s conclusion, Dominion, which will be released soon.
Ellie is smart, both in terms of her knowledge and her sharp wit. This is not only a Gemini quality, but it also helps her stand out in her largely male-dominated group. Ellie is also quick to respond in any situation, as a Gemini, and her desire to learn and help others gives her a natural curiosity.
Cancer – Claire Dearing
Claire (Bryce Dallas Howard) was the park operations manager for Jurassic World prior to the events of the film. Claire had a change of heart after the park was abandoned, and she became the leader of an organization dedicated to saving dinosaurs by any means necessary.
Claire is protective and loyal, a trait associated with the Cancer sign, whether it’s for her job, dinosaurs, or the people she cares about. Claire, a manager of a theme park and a leader of dinosaur protection, is a Cancer born person who fights for what she believes in.
Leo – John Hammond
John Hammond, played by the late Richard Attenborough, is the eccentric creator of Jurassic Park. Despite his obvious flaws, his enthusiasm for his creations was contagious, making the realization that his plan had failed a heart breaking moment in Jurassic Park.
Unlike in the novel, Hammond is friendly and warm, qualities associated with the Leo zodiac sign. Furthermore, he is a generous and welcoming host to the party he invited to see the park, but he is not afraid to be authoritative when necessary, such as reprimanding Nedry.
Virgo – Dr. Ian Malcolm
One of the non-dinosaur-related highlights of the franchise is Jeff Goldblum’s charismatic portrayal of Dr. Ian Malcolm. Fans were ecstatic about his cameo in Fallen Kingdom and the fact that he’ll be reprising the role in Dominion.
Virgos are known for their intelligence and practicality, and Ian is logical, critical, and an analyst first and foremost as a renowned mathematician specializing in chaos theory. Virgos are also sophisticated, as Ian demonstrates throughout the film.
Libra – Dr. Alan Grant
Dr. Alan Grant (Sam Neill), the main character in the first film, is a well-known palaeontologist who, along with Ellie and Ian, is contacted by Hammond for his help in approving the park. Alan is set to return in Dominion to complete the original Jurassic Park golden trio.
Likeability is a quality associated with Libras, and Alan, as the most likable character in Jurassic Park, exemplifies this trait. But it’s not just that he’s a good match for the Libra zodiac sign. Alan, as a Libra, is astute and level-headed of the three main characters, making him an objective leader.
Scorpio – Lex Murphy
Lex, Hammond’s granddaughter, is more reserved than her younger brother Tim, but she is just as enthusiastic about her own passion, computers, as she is about dinosaurs.
Scorpio is also known for having a fiery personality. Lex has also shown to be resourceful in times of need as a result of her precociousness, as well as being firm in her beliefs and mindsets, supposedly similar to those born under the Scorpio sign.
Sagittarius – Dennis Nedry
Although he met a gruesome end in Jurassic Park, antagonistic computer programmer Dennis Nedry has become a franchise icon as a result of his role as a catalyst for the events of the film and as an internet meme. As a result, Nedry is considered one of Wayne Knight’s best film roles.
Nedry is an excellent choice for Sagittarius because he is one of the film’s more comedic characters, as well as outspoken about his job. His irresponsible actions, which ultimately cost him his life at the hands of a Dilophosaurus, arguably solidify his fit for the archer sign.
Capricorn – Dr. Henry Wu
Dr. Henry Wu, played by BD Wong, is a pivotal character in the Jurassic Park franchise. Dr. Wu is the mastermind behind the resurrection and creation of dinosaurs, whether he’s working for Hammond’s Jurassic Park, Masrani’s Jurassic World, or corrupt businessman Eli Mills.
Regardless, Dr. Wu is driven and focused on ensuring that his dinosaur creations are flawless, which is a Capricorn trait. Furthermore, Capricorns are known for being serious and tenacious in their work, which is similar to Dr. Wu’s.
