We think that Cersei Lanniseter is born under the sign of Cancer. There are not astrologers in Game of Thrones. But we can ask: what are the astrological signs of Game of Thrones main characters?

Cersei and Tommen Lannister


Cersei and Her Children

Cersei Lannister is, above all else, an overprotective mother. Her three children – Joffrey, Myrcella and Tommen – represent the centre of her universe and she actually declares that they are the reason she’s alive:

Tyrion Lannister: You have children. How happy would you say you are?

Cersei Lannister: Not very. But if it weren’t for my children, I would have thrown myself from the highest tower in the Red Keep. They’re the reason I’m alive“. (Game of Thrones, 3.10, Mhysa)

She declares to Joffrey: „You are my darling boy, and the world will be exactly as you want it to be“. (Game of Thrones, 1.3, Lord Snow).

Actually, she’s prepared even to kill her children, to protect them from defeat, pain and misery: she proves it when she is prepared to poison her son Tommen in the throne-room, when defeat against Stannis seemed imminent. Death is seen as a better solution, when the world is not „as you want it to be“.

And we must also remember how Cersei reacted, when Myrcella was sent away in a boat. Then, she curses Tyrion: „ One day I pray you love someone. I pray you love her so much, when you close your eyes, you see her face. I want that for you. I want you to know what it’s like to love someone, truly love someone, before I take her from you“. (Game of Thrones, 2.6, The Old Gods and the New)


Cersei and Tyrion

Her brother Tyrion is not included in this circle of family love from only one reason: he excluded himself when he killed another member of his family, more important for Cersei: their mother:

Do you remember, back when you ripped my mother open on your way out of her and she bled to death?“ (Game of Thrones, 2.2, The Night Lands).

Then, Tyrion’s involvement in Myrcella’s marriage pact with House Martell is the straw that broke the camel’s back. Thereafter, she will seek revenge and the occasion will come when another child of her suffers: at Joffrey’s wedding and death.

cersei and lannister family

It is not necessarily to talk about the relationship with her brother Jaime, to demonstrate how affectionate she is with her family.

The family seen as the centre of the universe, the unconditionally love for her children (even for a villain like Joffrey), the guilty love for her brother Jamie are personality traits of Cancer woman – Cersei Lannister.
