Whether you think horoscopes or zodiac signs are a bunch of crap, everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I realize people are stubborn (yes, I'm looking at you Taurus) but it's written in the stars. Have you ever seen a psychic? That shit is crazy.
Now, this is all just fun and games. However, there are so many neighbourhoods in Ottawa with different characteristics, that there was no way we couldn't compare zodiac signs to them. We all know Gemini's need a balance, because they're crazy with their split personalities. You'd never find a Gemini willingly living in Orleans. And you'd never find a Leo living in Carp. If you still don't understand, then just keep reading!
Aries // Vanier
March 20 – April 19
Aries are rough around the edges, let's just be honest. They get the job done, they're super unique and original but not everyone can tolerate them. They know who they are, but they're more of an acquired taste. Similar to Vanier, as it is definitely rough around the edges.
Taurus // Orleans
April 19 – May 20
Taurus is an earth sign, which means they are stubborn but super reliable, responsible and stable. Just like Orleans, they're very well put together but they also like their distance. Orleans is pretty far from everything else in Ottawa, so it makes sense.
Gemini // ByWard Market
May 20 – June 20
Gemini–the double personality. The social butterfly of all of the signs, and love to always be doing something. A Gemini would love to live in the ByWard Market, since there is always something going on. They can easily meet up with friends, meet new people, but also hide away when they get into their 'mood'.
Cancer // Merivale
June 20 – July 22
Sort of like Gemini, Cancer is always looking for things to do. They have so much loyalty, however they can also be very mean and are known to not hold their tongue. Merivale is a great place, and there is so much to do. However, the traffic is just plain awful and it definitely puts everyone in a bad mood.
Leo // Rockcliffe
July 22 – August 22
Let's be real, Leo's think they're the shit. They walk around like the own the place, and they think they're so much better than everyone. And from an outsider looking it, it's all true. We're all jealous of them and we all wish we lived in Rockcliffe.
Virgo // Centretown
August 22 – September 22
Centretown is the business area of Ottawa, which is where Virgo's would strive. They get shit done, they work hard, and they like to be known for how hard working they really are. You don't give a f*ck what people think of you, and Centretown is one of the coolest neighbourhoods in Ottawa.
Libra // Carp
September 22 – October 23
Libra's are another stubborn sign, as well as selfish. They like to show off, but also like their privacy. Carp is totally a Libra–it's out in woods, but Kanata is so close that if they need to get out, they can. It's a great balance for Libra's.
Scorpio // LeBreton Flats
October 23 – November 21
Scorpios are hella independent, and while they like being alone, they also strive off of being around people. Since LeBreton Flats has been 'waiting' to build whatever for a while, it's a nice mix for Scorpios who can have land but also are a short drive away from Centretown.
Sagittarius // Barrhaven
November 21 – December 21
Sagittarius' don't really care about much. Their personalities are super laid back and they don't care what people think of them. So why would they care if Barrhaven gets made fun of? People in Barrhaven know that they're far from everything, but we don't care enough to listen to you complain about it. All they care about is being in a safe neighbourhood.
Capricorn // The Glebe
December 21 – January 19
Capricorns love to be known for things they can brag about, which is also totally The Glebe. The houses are expensive AF, and it's also home to Lansdowne Park which just screams rich to everyone in Ottawa. The Glebe would be a Capricorn, considering how cool and driven everyone living there is.
Aquarius // Stittsville
January 19 – February 18
One word for Aquarius: safe. They don't like going out of their comfort zone and like being at home. Their vibes are super simple and they don't need much to be happy. Stittsville is the exact same, and Aquarius would feel so safe here.
Pisces // Manotick
February 18 – March 20
Pisces need to be by the water. They're super emotional, they work hard for their money and when they have their mind set on something, they won't back down. Being by the water is their happy place, and Manotick would be the perfect place for them to ease their mind, relax, and not worry for once.
