Everyone has a birthday, so even if you don't really believe in astrology, you still claim a sign of the zodiac. From Aries to Pisces, the range of personality types and traits is pretty large, and tbh, most horoscopes are so vague they could apply to anyone anyway. To make things a little more interesting, and relevant to all you beautiful Montrealers, we've made the Montreal Astrological Horoscope. Read on to see your sign and where you're most likely to go out on a weekend in Montreal.

Aries

Birthdays: March 21-April 20th

Element: Fire

Mascot: The Ram

Parties at: Igloofest, Osheaga

First on the horoscope list is are the Aries folk, who usually put themselves first anyway. Active and adventurous, these are the people who are at all the bar openings, club events, and braving the cold at Igloofest, just because they want to. Natural leaders, you've probably met more than a few Aries business people or students, or leading a pack of drunken friends to a bar on St. Laurent.

Taurus

Birthdays: April 20-May 20

Element: Earth

Mascot: The Bull

Parties at: Philémon Bar

All about excess, Taurus people love the pleasures of the city. You'll always find Tauruses in an SAQ picking out the best wine, at La Fromagerie Hamel tasting the finest of fromages, and getting tables at the fanciest restaurants, and never going to a dep to grab cheetos and boxed wine. Taurus are still quite practical, even though they like to indulge, and can be known to be pretty stubborn, like their mascot would suggest, so it's best to just go along with their plan to drink fancy wine at Philémon Bar than to fight them on it.

Gemini

Birthdays: May 21-June 21

Element: Air

Mascot:The Twins

Parties at: The Comedy Works, house parties

Have a friend who loves to talk, and maybe never shuts up? High chances they're a Gemini. Geminis do talk a lot, but they are usually quite smart and intelligent, so they always have something worthwhile to say. Get 'em drunk and prepare to have your ear talked right off. Their witty banter is always seen at any house party, and Geminis are likely to be spotted at The Comedy Works, either critiquing or performing.

Cancer

Birthdays: June 22-July 22

Element: Water

Mascot: The Crab

Parties at: Hurley's Irish Pub

Hard on the outside, but full of ooey-gooey feels on the inside, Cancer-people embody the crab. Cancers are very domestic, focusing on family ties and history, so don't be surprised to see them walking about the streets of Old Montreal to take in Montreal's history, or still at home living with their family in the West Island. Highly protective of friends and family, Cancers usually assume the role of mother hen on a night out, and the first to hold back your hair when your getting all vommy in the bathroom of Korova. If they are drinking, they prefer something low key with a long history, an Irish pub like Hurley's would do the trick.

Leo

Birthdays: July 23-August 22

Element: Fire

Mascot: The Lion

Parties at: La Station de Sports, La Boite de Karaoke

Loving life in the limelight, Leo's are the stereotpical center-of-attention-type. Ambitious, and a little vain, Leo's can often be seen rocking out to some karoake at Trois Minots or La Boite de Karaoke. Leo's dramatic nature lends really well to the stage, and they frequently star in Montreal theater productions. A little hot-headed, it's probably best to stay on a Leo's good side, and not avoid knocking the Canadiens, because they will start a bar fight.

Virgo

Birthdays: August 23-September 22

Element: Earth

Mascot: The Virgin

Parties at: Benelux

Logical, picky, and very practical, Virgos may seem a little uptight, but that's only because they're very selective. You probably won't spot a Virgo at Montreal's more dive-y barsm but if you try to pick one up at a spot like Benelux, be wary of being shot down. Take the chance though, because if a Virgo is into you, they're into you, since you've already passed their strict selection process.

Libra

Birthdays: September 23-October 22

Element: Air

Mascot: The Scales

Parties at: Their apartment, in their PJs, watching Netflix with their boy/girlfriend

Libras are always thinking of others, and their relation to the world in general, so they make great pals. Very relationship-focused though, so don't expect them to get all drunk and slutty at Tokyo with you. Highly refined, with a great sense of style,

Scorpio

Birthdays: October 23-November 21

Element: Water

Mascot: The Scorpion

Parties at: Sainte Elisabeth

Seriously obsessed with success is the best way to describe a Scoripo. Seeing things in absolutes, a Scorpio will straight up tell you if the person who just performed a set at Brutopia's open mic sucks or not. Always motivated, Scorpios are often the business folk you see walking around downtown in suits. Or at Sainte Elizabeth's, enjoying the 5 a 7 after a hard day of owrk.

Sagittarius

Birthdays: November 22-December 21

Element: Fire

Mascot: The Archer

Parties at: Anywhere with good Yelp reviews, Le Belmont

Sagittarius people are constantly on a quest for knowledge and truth. In school you probably saw them breaking stories at the McGill Daily, Concordia's The Link, or any other campus newspaper, only to become legit journalists at Journal Metro, The Gazette, or elsewhere as the years passed. Clear and forward thinkers, Sagittarius already has your night planned out, reading all the bar reviews or background checking the party's guest list on Facebook, with a contingency club that's always fun (like Le Belmont) in mind.

Capricorn

Birthdays: December 22-January 19th

Element: Earth

Mascot: The Goat

Parties at: Helm, Dieu de Ciel

Hard working Capricorn will always get the job done, even at the expense of fun. While you and your friends are out getting wasted, the Capricorn is responsibly at home, the library, or in bed preparing for tomorrow's full day of work. Less inclined to try out the strange, Capricorn's gravitate to simple bars and microbreweries, like Helm, rather than a crazy club like New City Gas.

Aquarius

Birthdays: January 20-February 18

Element: Air

Mascot: The Water Bearer

Parties at: Any and all charity events, Resonance

Even though its a cliché, the 'Age of Aquarius' line really does fit this astrological sign, as Aquarius' are always trying to change the world for the better. All about helping others, you'll find them offering help wherever it is needed, whether it be volunteering at Mission Hall soup kitchen, raising money for CKUT's Homelessness Marathon, picking up alcohol for the predrink, or chilling at a co-op cafe like Resonance.

Pisces

Birthdays: February 19-March 20

Element: Water

Mascot: The Fish

Parties at: Bifteck, Pop Montreal

Out of all the signs, Pisces is most likely to be into horoscopes, as Pisces people are highly intuitive and into the spiritual. Montreal's many churches, strange shops, or tarot locales (like Tarot du Soleil) are all points of interest for the intuitive Pisces who's always on an innter journey of discovery. Pisces like to keep their feelings under wraps, even though they're highly emotional, which makes them the classic bi-polar drunk who is brought to tears or smiles at a moments notice. Best to take them to a place like Bifteck where everyone is equally emotionally-wasted if something artsy like Pop Montreal isn't going on.
