Her face just screams, “I marry that douche bag?!” Sorry Charlotte Lucas but you are the only one who would!
Everybody say hello to Charlotte, Elizabeth's best friend and arguably the most sensible character in the entire book. She represents the cynicism of the age: marriage isn't about love. Not that she doesn't want to be loved but there are more material things like eating that take precedence. She argues that love comes later which can happen or you could end up miserable like Mr. Bennet.
For these reasons and many more, I deem Charlotte a Taurus female.
She’s just such an earth sign! A water sign would never seek out someone they didn’t love to marry, though they wouldn’t say no if they were asked. A fire sign would want to marry where there is passion and adventure. An air sign couldn’t handle Mr. Collins's drabble (and let's be honest, who would want to?).
Taureans are patient, domestic, loyal and reliable. Remember when she told Lizzy it was a comfort to run her own home? Hearth and home is the Taurus’ bread and butter. And you’d have to be patient and loyal to be friends with someone with a sharp tongue like Lizzy Bennet! The only real downside to a Taurus, and specifically the females, is the stubbornness. Often the docile cow, one forgets that the true sign is a bull who will fight for what they want.
Whenever I watch or read Pride and Prejudice I always get really mad at Charlotte for marrying this poor shmuck and then only spending a few minutes with him a day? Really? I get it, she got what she wanted from him and in the BBC version it looks like there is affection between the two but I’m very much like Lizzy that I don’t envy them. She’s not cold, that’s not the Taurus’ way. It more like selective love which is given out in doses.
My best friend is a Taurus female and I can see very distinct similarities between the two of them so I feel like I’m being accurate. But I am a bit partial so how am i doing?
