"Jersey Shore" is the hit MTV reality show that gave us not only hilarious entertainment and catchphrases, but also a glimpse into the lifestyle embodied by the cast.

A look into the "Jersey Shore" cast's zodiac signs can give you some insight into why each of the "characters" you've come to know and love acts the way they do.

Much of what set apart this series from other hit reality shows was the abundance of both chemistry and comedy provided the cast. Like MTV's first reality show "The Real World," the "Jersey Shore" cast was brought together to live in a home and have their lives taped, but rather than casting a group of individuals from widely different backgrounds, the people on "Jersey" came from the same area and were into the same type of lifestyle.

We were introduced to the Guidos and Guidettes — a term that could evoke anger or pride depending on who you ask — who spent their summers partying at New Jersey's popular beach spot.

The cast was well known for their style, which included some very tanned skin, just as much as their partying.

The original series aired from 2009 to 2012, and in 2018 the cast returned to film "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation." Most of them have become spouses and parents, but that doesn't mean they still weren't still up for having a good time in the reboot. A little older doesn't always mean a lot wiser. But these loyal friends are always up for a night out.

If you've been a long-time fan of the show or just recently discovered it, you might wonder why the "Jersey Shore" cast members act the way they do.

Like everyone else, they all have their unique personality traits, and you can pinpoint a lot of what they do to their zodiac signs' dominant traits.

Here is a rundown of the Jersey Shore cast's zodiac signs, along with an explanation of why they each behave they way they do, based on astrology.

1. Nicole 'Snooki' Polizzi

Birthday: November 23, 1987

Zodiac sign: Sagittarius

Snooki is one of the most popular members of the cast of "The Jersey Shore." She may have been originally known for her small, over-bronzed stature mixed with a big bouffant hairstyle, but it was her personality that ultimately made her both lovable and hilarious.

Typical of a Sagittarius woman, Snooki is curious and energetic, which is why she enjoys pushing the limits and getting involved in ridiculous situations.

Her sense of humor about everything is also a quality that relates to her zodiac sign. A Sagittarius is known for having a great sense of humor, and seeing as how Snooki can laugh off even getting arrested, she definitely can see the humor in any situation.

2. Mike 'The Situation' Sorrentino

Birthday: July 4, 1982

Zodiac sign: Cancer

Mike, A.K.A. 'The Situation' often seems to be into himself to the point of full-blown narcissism, but it seems to come from a place of deep insecurity.

That insecurity is actually common in people born under the Cancer zodiac sign. He also has quite the temper. One of the traits of a Cancer is that they are very sensitive and emotional, which can definitely manifest itself in having a temper.

3. Paul 'Pauly D' DelVecchio

Birthday: July 5, 1980

Zodiac sign: Cancer

While Mike's personality emphasizes Cancer traits like a short temper and insecurities, Pauly D's personality is strongly defined by his loyalty to the group.

This is especially evident in his close friendship with Vinny. The fact that he has a close friendship with another character on the show is quite typical of a Cancer since they are easily attached to the people around them.

4. Jenni 'JWoww' Farley

Birthday: February 27, 1986

Zodiac sign: Pisces

It totally makes sense that JWoww seems to have a good head on her shoulders in comparison to the rest of the "Jersey Shore" cast.

Pisces are known for being wise, and while she may not be quoting Aristotle on the show, she is definitely a voice of reason.

5. Vinny Guadagnino

Birthday: November 11, 1987

Zodiac sign: Scorpio

Vinny, who has a particularly close friendship with Pauly D, can reference his Scorpio zodiac sign as a reason why he developed such a close relationship throughout the show. Scorpios are known for being true friends, and they also value longtime friendships.

Vinny is also not nearly as loud as other more-vibrant members of the cast. This is common for Scorpio since they are known for having a calm and cool demeanor.

6. Ronnie Ortiz Magro

Birthday: December 4, 1985

Zodiac sign: Sagittarius

One of the most frustrating things to see — even in the new reboot — is Ronnie getting drunk and cheating on the woman in his life.

Obviously, not everyone does this when they drink, and the reason Ronnie does it is that as a Sagittarius, he doesn't like feeling constrained.

Unfortunately, being in a committed relationship can feel constraining for someone who doesn't do well in relationships. He also doesn't like clingy people, and your significant other can certainly feel clingy if you are not ready to settle down and be monogamous.

7. Deena Cortese

Birthday: January 12, 1987

Zodiac sign: Capricorn

Born January 12, Deena joined the cast of The Jersey Shore in the original series' third season and is also returning for the new "The Jersey Shore: Family Vacation."

After joining, Deena proved to be the perfect sidekick to Snooki. Capricorns prefer to have a more understated status and are good managers, which is why Deena made such a great sidekick for Snooki's antics.

8. Angelina Pivarnick

Birthday: June 26, 1986

Zodiac sign: Cancer

Angelina was in the first 2 seasons of "Jersey Shore" and is present in "Jersey Shore: Family Vacation."

Cancers, being a water sign, have very fluid emotions. They are ruled by the moon so, their emotions are pulled and pushes around, just like the tides.

9. Samantha 'Sammi Sweeheart' Giancola

Birthday: March 14, 1987

Zodiac sign: Pisces

Sammi, AKA "Sammi Sweetheart," is one of the few characters not in the reboot of "The Jersey Shore," but she appeared in all original seasons of the show.

Pisces are overflowing with creativity. This could be the reason why Sammi has done so well in the business world post-Jersey Shore.

Pisces are also extremely motivated people, but can also adapt quickly to their surroundings. This could be why she not only started her own business, Sweetheart Styles, but that business is succeeding.
