Happy (Fake) Birthday, Nex!

Guess what? Today is Nex’s birthday! ????

Okay, not really. He doesn’t have a canon birth date (yet). Until Rainbow gives him one, I’m gonna treat March 22 as his birthday. Here’s why I picked this date.

Star Sign

According to the real zodiac, a March 22 birthday makes Nex an Aries. That seems like the perfect sign for him based on what we know about his character. Arians tend to be:

  • Athletic: Nex loves sports.
  • Competitive: As his character description says, he “always wants to prove he’s the best at everything, and challenges anyone without fear”.
  • Good leaders: We’ve seen him take on leadership (or co-leadership) roles a few times in Winx Club.
  • Hot-tempered: Admittedly, Nex has a short fuse.
  • Quick to calm down: An Arian doesn’t stay mad for long. Once they’ve let off steam, they cool off quickly. Nex is like this, too. Bloom even mentioned it in Winx comic #131: “La Prova di Nex” (Nex’s Test). Original line: “Conoscendo Nex… i suoi bollenti spiriti si calmeranno presto!” My translation: “Knowing Nex… his ardor will cool soon!”
  • Arrogant: Let’s face it: Nex has too much confidence in himself, which I think is why a no-nonsense girl like Aisha is good for him.
  • Optimistic: He’s determined and upbeat.
  • Encouraging: He often praises and cheers for Aisha, as well as other characters.

Here’s another reason Aries works for him. One of the star signs Aries is most compatible with is Gemini. Guess who happens to be a Gemini? ?

Corresponding Birthdates

You know how much I love Aisha and Nex’s symbolism. Giving Nex March 22 as his birthday adds another layer to it.

Aisha’s birthday is June 15, which in real life is Global Wind Day. What was Nex’s original weapon? The Halberd of the Wind.

What about March 22? It’s World Water Day! Of course, we know who the Winx fairy of water is!

Final Thoughts

I’d love for March 22 to become Nex’s official birthdate, but I don’t expect it. For now, I’m just happy to have a date to celebrate.

Happy (Fake) Birthday, Nex!
