okay but when is william’s birthday
They celebrated it in pillar 40, but I don’t really know… and it wasn’t in the fanbook… ;^;
I CALCULATED THIS SHIT I dont have a precise date but I am pretty near it I think
Guy Fawkes is on November 4th, right? It’s made into a huge repeated point throughout the arc that it’s an important date, and that’s the night everything goes down for the Rose War arc. Which makes it the last big event before William’s bday in canon. We do see some time has seemed to have passed before William’s bday, say, a few weeks! Everyone if dressed up warmly too, so it’s definitely Winter, though not deep Winter yet, so it’s probably late November/Early December. The Jack the Ripper arc is TOTALLY OFF on the timeline it’s meant to be in, but hey, this is manga land.
Also I really like the thought of William being a Sagittarius because it suits his personality so well…
YOU GUYS ARE SAINTS I LOVE YOU
It gets better when you look at Dantalion and go ‘ah he is a total Aries’ and they’re actually pretty compatible but also a very firey couple
I mean I don’t have a problem assigning star signs to characters nope not at all I don’t make huge charts or anything
please share any and all astrological musings with me you don’t understand
WELL IF YOU ARE GOING TO ASK FOR IT
William is almost a very typical Sagittarius! Sagittarius is a sign that’s all about the intellectual, and focuses keenly on knowledge and the pursuit of truth. They are also known to be one of the most independent signs out there! They value their freedom, and they also like life to be easy for them, so they’re very self-indulgent. They tend to be very ambitious due to these reasons— and the archer is literally a symbol of ‘taking aim’ on something, in this case.
As a fire sign, Sagittarius is always at the ready, and are prone to flashes of insight and enthusiasm! They tend to be very passionate about life, and tend to live large - and get frustrated by mundane chores and duties. Fire signs tend to be intuitive and rely on their gut in some respects, but they also skip some crucial steps in the process - usually the emotional impact of their actions. If you try and control a Sagittarius and not give them the room they need, they tend to become temperamental and difficult.
Sagittarius is also born under Jupiter, and due to that they tend to be associated with nobility and come across as leaders. Sagittarius is also known to be extremely outspoken, to the point of being rather coldly blunt. They’re also quick-witted and do not tend to hesitate. Basically, Sagittarius tend to be straight-forward and confident, even inspirational!
The only things that don’t quite fit William is that he’s not quite as optimistic and generous as a typical Sagi is, but I think that also depends on what we’re talking about - he’s optimistic about his skills and his future if he applies himself, and he can be very sentimental and generous under some circumstance. However, he’s definitely not athletically fit, which most Sagi are expected to be.
Meanwhile, I think Dantalion is an Aries because, like William, he tends to have a fairly passionate and firey personality and relies a lot of his gut when making decisions, and skips over the emotional impact consequences…
The difference with Aries is that they don’t tend to think or focus nearly as much on knowledge, they are more do-ers. As the first sign of the Zodiac, they are all about initiating things and getting stuff started, and tend to view themselves as a leading force! Aries are great at morale building and is just a bundle of energy and enthusiasm, leading with complete force of personality.
However as the sign of the Ram, there’s also cons. Aries are not subdued, subtle creatures - they will ram their ideas down your throat whether you like it or not. They’re very blunt and competitive, and always aim to win! Versus Sagittarius, who can back off and will at least listen to others. Aries tends to get irritated by anything they consider is ‘too slow’.
Ruled by Mars, which many of you know is the God of War, fits Dantalion’s background really well too. Aries are bold, aggressive and courageous, and will take on almost anyone in a fight. Aries are also very focused, almost myopic, in their approach. They can unfortunately come across as very arrogant due to their ‘me first’ nature, as it’s fairly self-centered— however, Aries are also extremely genuine, and what you see is what you get.
Sagittarius and Aries, as fire signs, are VERY compatible— but they can also have too much fire. The big difference between them is basically the difference between a King delegating the world from his throne, and a General on the front lines with his soldiers— both are very important leader types, but they take different approaches and specialize in different areas. For this reason, they can get along very well, because the positions they take are very compatible rather than conflicting, and is meant to work together!
However, it can be difficult for the two to stay together, as Aries is always in a rush and Sagittarius tends to look at everything but the obvious. Additionally, Aries tend to become possessive and Sagittarius needs room to breathe! Nonetheless, both signs like to take action and to experience and do things for themselves, rather than waste their time. So more often than not, they just fuel each other all the more.
OMG THIS <3
