We see at least one Ottawa landmark on the daily and I'm sure at one point or another you stared into the eyes of one of them and saw yourself. Blame the stars.
Even if you don't believe in astrology, zodiac signs are there to provide some sort of guidance on your identity. There's a little bit of us in each Ottawa monument we see. It's hard to deny. Take a look for yourself.
Here are each of the zodiac signs represented through Ottawa landmarks:
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18) // Samuel de Champlain Statue
You're introverted and shy but not afraid to be the life of the party if you need to be. You like to spend your time alone and are all about making the world a better place. You're definitely stepping up Ottawa's photography game, that's for sure.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20) // The Canal
You're a water sign. But, not only that, you're officially the twelfth zodiac sign and embody a little bit of everything from the rest of the signs. You have a little bit of every Ottawa monument flowing through you. You're selfless, always willing to provide a track for joggers and a stream for kayakers.
Aries (March 21 - Apr. 19) // Rideau Centre
You're energetic, fast-moving and are the centre of attention. You're always looking to start new trends and get the ball rolling (even if it took you a bit too long to get a Disney Store).
Taurus (Apr. 20 - May 20) // Chateau Laurier
You're all about that love for luxury. Nothing says luxury like the Chateau Laurier, but you're also very cool, calm and collected. You sorta have to be. When that sinkhole opened up around the corner, you looked like you were doing just fine.
Gemini (May 21 - Jun. 20) // Maman Spider
You can be both sides of the coin. You can either come off as witty, energetic and fun, or serious. You can be social, or sometimes you can spend your alone time. You're adaptable, much like our artsy friend, Maman.
Cancer (Jun. 21 - Jul. 22) // ByTowne Theatre
You're the sentimental type. You play movies we won't be seeing at the big theatres. You might be a little bit self-absorbed trying to be the centre of attention on Rideau Street with that bright sign and all, but you're loyal and dependable. We're guaranteed to see your sign glowing every night, making everything look pretty. We love you and you love us. Thank you.
Leo (Jul. 23 - Aug. 22) // Parliament Hill
You're a natural born leader. You radiate this unprecedented level of confidence and this energy that no one can exist. Every time we walk by you or drive by on the OC Transpo, we're always looking up at that clock. Damn you're alluring.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22) // Notre-Dame Cathedral Basilica
You're all about preciseness and the little details. You're very picky and everything has to be just right, like all the details in and around the cathedral.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22) // Peacekeeping Monument
If there's one thing Libras don't like, it's being alone. Why have one statue when you can have three? Like the name of the monument itself, it's all about peace for you. Peace and love. You're diplomatic and get along with pretty much anybody.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21) // Centennial Flame
You're a hotbed of emotion. You assert yourself and are loyal to those around you. When people throw coins at you and make a wish, you keep that wish. You're still a jealous character though and can't help but envy the attention Parliament gets.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21) // The Sinkhole
You're the wanderer. You go from one end of the city to the other. You want to get to know the meaning of life but no one gets you.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19) // National War Memorial
You're ambitious and hold traditional values close to your heart. You're all about professionalism and are more serious than the rest of the star signs. You reflect a beaming confidence and strong will amongst everyone else. You essentially set high standards, much like the War Memorial sets the standards for all other prominent monuments in the city.
