In this day and age, people are fortunate enough to have many advantages that can make everyday life easier, but that was very different in the Middle Ages.
Even if there are certain class differences to this day and some are more fortunate than others, it wasn’t even close in the Middle Ages.
There was next to nothing to be done to move to one class or another, and a certain status was bestowed upon you at birth.
Those born into royal families were lucky and enjoyed a host of privileges, while those who weren’t could not.
They did arduous work and had little or no respect for the upper class.
You couldn’t change your fate either, as it was very unlikely that you would suddenly become rich and powerful.
For in order to rise from peasantry to nobility, it would probably take a hundred years or more of constant success.
That is why the punishment of being born a farmer during these cruel times was very hard to bear.
Mainly because you didn’t choose that fate and had no control over that fate – no matter what you did.
Fortunately, we don’t have to worry today because being born less fortunate doesn’t mean we won’t one day be very successful.
Also, your zodiac sign can tell you whether you were a nobleman or a farmer in the Middle Ages, so try your luck.
Aries – farmer
(March 21st to April 19th)
If you were born under the zodiac sign Aries, you would unfortunately have been a farmer in the Middle Ages.
Mainly because Aries have great survivability and they don’t mind if life gets rough at times.
They are mentally very strong and adapted to survival, which is why they would make good farmers.
Especially the sarcastic ones who loudly abuse the king and royal family, no matter what the consequences.
Taurus – nobleman
(April 20th – May 20th)
The zodiac sign Taurus would certainly be noble in the Middle Ages.
After all, they are known for being entitled and receiving things they don’t really deserve.
Even in this day and age, after putting little or no work into something, they get everything exclusively, and that’s just luck.
So even in the Middle Ages you will be a screaming princess who leaves the whole kingdom empty just to wash her luscious hair.
Twins – noblemen
(May 21 – June 21)
The zodiac sign Gemini would certainly be a nobleman in medieval times.
Above all, some kind of tyrant king who drinks wine all day and delights in his beloved while the whole kingdom starves.
Well, you would certainly have some skills to run your kingdom, but you know how messy twins can get.
Yet despite all this happiness, we can’t help but suspect that one day they will be executed for their arrogance.
Cancer – farmer
(June 21 – July 22)
Cancer is the victim of every story, so it is not surprising that they would have been more like farmers in the Middle Ages.
Still, they would have been those sweet maids who bake bread all day and are cuddled by aristocrats passing by.
Or bards who sing all day and wait for a coin to be slipped into them.
So somehow they would have made it to work for the royal family, even if it took a bit of pride, but still better than dying in combat.
Leo – nobleman
(July 23 – August 22)
There is no doubt that the most amazing sign of the zodiac, that is, Leo, would have been a nobleman during the Middle Ages.
Not only that, but they would have been the king of their own kingdom as well.
Yet not just any king, but a wise ruler who looks for the best solutions so that his kingdom flourishes and the people celebrate him.
Because he loves to hear them all sing together – long live our king with the lion heart.
Virgin – nobleman
(August 23 – September 22)
With her wonderful manners and innocence, the virgin would definitely have been part of the royal family.
Plus, they would be the kind of nobles who are in an education and travel a lot to learn about the people who live outside the royal bubble.
We can also imagine the Virgin starting some kind of revolution to improve life for all people of the kingdom.
Even starting an affair with someone outside of royalty, which would definitely find a place in the history books.
Libra – farmer
(September 23 – October 22)
We all know the Libra zodiac sign as glamorous and arrogant, but in the Middle Ages they would have been farmers.
That’s probably why they’re the biggest snobs in the world now that those tough conditions are over.
Still, we imagine that they are clumsy knights just trying their luck or blacksmiths who will sell you a bent sword for a whole cow.
They would have survived this time, but they would not have been anyone’s favorite, nor are they now.
Scorpio – farmer
(October 23 – November 21)
The Scorpio would definitely have been a farmer in the Middle Ages, but that still wouldn’t stop him from being the worst nightmare of all humans.
We can imagine that they are some kind of bootlicker for the king or a charlatan who takes advantage of other people’s stupidity.
In addition, they would have been constant visitors to brothels, which makes it not surprising that people may have called them devils even then.
So one can well imagine that they were the epitome of Satan in a very control-addicted time.
(November 22 – December 21)
The zodiac sign Sagittarius would have been a farmer in the Middle Ages.
After all, only the strongest survive, and they are certainly the most capable of enduring harsh circumstances.
Yet they would not tolerate disrespect either, even if they were unfortunately in a difficult position.
So we can imagine them stabbing someone or poisoning the king.
Capricorn – nobleman
(December 22nd – January 19th)
The zodiac sign Capricorn will always be part of the nobility, no matter what time.
They are simply predestined for the lavish lifestyle, so the medieval period is no exception.
In this way they can enjoy rich meals, beautiful clothes and a status that always opens up new possibilities.
Which they will certainly use because it is never enough for them to be born rich, for they always want more.
Aquarius – nobleman
(January 20th – February 18th)
Aquarius would of course be a true nobleman because that is simply the energy he exudes.
Simply because they are so awesome and really progressive in their own way.
So we can imagine them leading the kingdom to success and making historical outbursts.
As they win the hearts of many lovely virgins on their way.
Pisces – farmer
(February 19 – March 20)
Pisces are the greatest farmers in the zodiac, and that doesn’t just apply to medieval times.
Whereby, no matter how much they progress in life, somehow they always remain fainthearted and somebody’s bootlickers.
Not that we don’t like Pisces, but they like to be influenced by others who have more power than they do.
Which is of course, since they were never of particularly strong character anyway.
