There are many fun holiday characters, and in this article, we'll explore one of them - Frosty the Snowman! The snowman who comes to life with eyes of coal and always screams, "Happy birthday!" (that kind of sounds like a horror movie instead of a kiddie Christmas movie).
I'll go into what I think Frosty the Snowman's natal chart would look like. In these character analysis posts, I review what fictional characters might have in their natal charts, and this can help you with learning astrology, Let's dig in!
Frosty's Sun, Mercury, and Venus
I'd say Frosty is a Sagittarius Sun, Mercury, and Venus, ever the optimist, always happy and friendly and fun. Sagittarius is the happy, optimistic Zodiac sign, and Frosty is pretty positive! Plus, he was born in December, the time of Sagittarius.
I like the 3 as a stellium because it would increase his optimism, make him have an easier time getting along with others, and with relating and expressing himself. Stelliums are when you have 3 or more planets together in one sign, and they are highly concentrated energy that greatly increases the sign (and house) location.
I’d also pick some hard aspects to his Mercury by the outer planets to make his memory worse. Mercury rules the mind, so hard aspects by the outer planets (Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto) would help explain that.
Frosty's Moon: Gemini
Frosty has Moon in Gemini for sure! Frosty has a terrible memory, which is very Gemini (as a scattered air and mutable sign). He's sociable, engaging, and active.
Frosty is also good with young people, and Gemini is the sign ruling young people.
Frosty's Mars: Leo
I like Leo for Frosty’s Mars as he’s always up for fun, always wanting to have a good time, always saying, “Happy birthday!” Leo is the sign that rules fun and having a good time, and Mars is the planet of energy and drive, so he'd be driven to have lots of fun.
It would make his Mars trine his Sun, Mercury, and Venus, and sextile his Moon, which are easy, beneficial aspects.
Frosty's Rising Sign
A little torn here between Leo or Aquarius.
Leo rising would put his Mars in the 1st house of the self, increasing his optimism, but I’m not sure he has quite the energy required for a Mars 1st house (which can be super high).
His Sun-Mercury-Venus would be in the 5th house of fun and kids, and his Moon would be in the 11th house of friends, and those do make sense.
Aquarius rising would put his Mars in his 7th house, ruler of relationships and other people, and Frosty is dedicated to the kids. His Sun-Mercury-Venus would be in the 11th house of friendships, and his Moon would be in the 9th house, very optimistic and bright-side (naturally connects to Sagittarius). So I’m inclined to go with Aquarius Rising.
Final Note: Pluto
Frosty is reborn over and over again, which is very Pluto, so I’d say he has a prominent Pluto in his chart, perhaps on a house cusp, or conjunct a personal planet (Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, or Mars).
Pluto is the planet of transformation and rules rebirth, and when it's strong in the natal chart, that often shows experiencing one or many transformations/rebirths (as he does).
So that's Frosty!

This holiday article is about everyone’s favorite reindeer - Rudolph! Who can resist a little outcast who grows up to be so important for Santa?
These character analysis articles explore what I think the natal chart would look like for a fictional character - Rudolph, in this case. This can help you with understanding astrological placements in the natal chart as I explain the reasoning behind each placement I think the character has. Let's dive in!
Rudolph: A Pisces Sun, Mercury, & Venus
I would pin Rudolph as a Pisces Sun, Mercury, and Venus. He’s so sweet, so innocent, shy, and easily bruised, which is very Pisces, especially strong Pisces energy (which would be the case with a trio in Pisces).
I’d put this trio in his 12th house since he tries to keep his red nose from other people, hiding himself, and the 12th house is the house of hidden things. When you have 12th house planets, especially personal planets (which the Sun, Mercury, and Venus are), it makes you feel a bit misunderstood as well, which he feels at first.
I would also make his Mercury retrograde because of this, and because many who end up successful in a different way have Mercury retrograde. Mercury retrograde natives often feel misunderstood for a while, but they can find great success through what makes them different with their retrograde Mercury.
When the other reindeer couldn’t see, Rudolph stepped in because he could, which is an example of how during Mercury retrograde, the rest of us flounder, while someone born with Mercury retrograde thrives (so perhaps Mercury was retrograde when that happened! it IS pretty Mercury retrograde, haha).
Rudolph: An Aries Rising & Mars
I’d make Rudolph an Aries rising and Mars, with Mars in the 1st house. Mars is the natural ruler of Aries and the 1st house, so this is very strong Mars energy. He becomes a natural leader for the reindeer, and is at the head of the pack. Mars is the natural leader, the one who takes initiative and goes where no one else does.
Also, this speaks to Rudolph’s red nose - red is associated with the sign Aries and planet Mars! It's because of all of that fiery energy. Aries and Mars also rule the head and face, with the 1st house showing how you come across and your external self.
Rudolph: An Aquarius Moon
I would put Rudolph’s Moon in Aquarius and the 11th house. Aquarius and the 11th house rules your friends, and his friends are important for him, like Hermey, and he make lots of friends along the way, like at the Land of Misfit Toys. His odd collection of friends is very Aquarius/11th house, who is attracted to different types of people.
The Moon is what you need for emotional stability and security, and rules your family. Having his Moon in Aquarius and the 11th house would show Rudolph can look to his friends like his family, and they provide the emotional support he needs.
So that's Rudolph!
