Where You Should Live In Montreal Based On Your Astrological Sign
Reside where your stars align.
Ever felt that you're in the right city but in the wrong neighborhood? We've traversed Montreal, read the constellations, and discovered which neighborhood uniquely corresponds to your astrological sign. Let the stars guide you to your happy place in the bustling metropolis of Montreal.
Scroll down for a list of locales corresponding to all twelve astrological signs:
1. Aries: Downtown
Fierce, energetic, and always the center of attention, fearless Aries long for the sky scrapers of Downtown Montreal. Aries’ competitive, daring nature makes them feel right at home in the heart of Montreal commercial district. These optimistic go-getters won't be small fish in a big pond for long!
2. Taurus: Laval
Calm, cool, and always a little apart from the crowd, security-seeking Taurus is likely to put down roots in Laval, close enough to the city for socializing but far enough so reserved Taurus can retreat. Cheaper than Centre-Ville, Laval offers Taurus the opportunity to indulge in those creature-comforts this sign needs and the distance is no problem for Taurus, who is never in a hurry!
3. Gemini: Gay Village
Fleet-footed Mercury makes this changeable sign perfect for the playful party lifestyle of the gay village. Always on the go, Geminis love the ever-changing, adventurous atmosphere that defines this neighborhood. Let the party begin!

4. Cancer: The Underground
Protective, home-oriented, and grumpy, Cancers are everyone's favorite moody sign... and for this they're just better off hiding from the world (and the cold) under the city. With food courts, shopping malls, and book stores, the Montreal Underground allows Cancers the comfort they crave.
5. Leo: Old Port
It only makes sense that the lions of astrology would find their place in Old Port, the glamorous heart of Montreal. The boutiques and high-brow restaurants mirror Leo's own need for attention, pride, and dignity, whether it's during the tourist-packed summer season or on a beautiful pre-Christmas snowy evening.
6. Virgo: Little Italy
Gentle and quiet Virgos belong in Montreal's effortlessly chic Little Italy, surrounded by beautiful brick homes, the finest Italian cuisine, and delicious gelato. Here, Virgos can indulge their need for solitude with a glass of wine on a terrace, or help out a friend, as is their nature, whilst sipping a cup of espresso prepared to perfection.
7. Libra: Mile End
Like the Libra, the Mile End is all about balance. Work and Play. Coffee and Croissants. Food and Beer. Libras appreciate the beautiful architecture, parks, and scores of restaurants that make Mile End the trendy locale for up-and-coming twenty and thirty somethings. And for the Libra, always interested in finding love, the Mile End offers some great people watching no matter your gender/sexuality.
8. Scorpio: Chinatown
Passionate Scorpios enjoy energizing environments... and also being a little apart from the crowd, which is why Montreal's Chinatown, a distinct neighborhood within a city, is ideal for this spirited sign. With a unique feel, amazing cuisine, and an uncommon blend of cultures, Chinatown is the perfect place for wise, sensitive Scorpios.

9. Parc Jean Drapeau: Sagittarius
The carefree flower-chidren otherwise known as Sagittariuses want to get as much fun out of life as they can, and what better place to do that than Parc Jean Drapeau! Whether it's time for Piknic Electronik, Osheaga, hiking, or spinnin' the tables at the Casino, Parc Jean Drapeau indulges every Sagittarius' wanderlust.
10. Capricorn: Parc du Mont Royal
A quintessential Earth sign, Capricorn makes his home in Mont Royal Parc as well as on the Mount itself. Capricorn's famous discipline, tendency toward seriousness and work ethic, makes this sign feel perfectly at home running up the stairs to the lookout point on Mount Royal or trekking the paths in the icy, winter months.
11. Aquarius: Griffintown
Aquariuses are known for their innate understanding of people and forward-looking attitude; what better neighborhood than up-and-coming Griffintown, characterized by a thriving new restaurant and café culture? As an air sign, Aquarius is not tied to the already established Plateau and Mile End neighborhoods. They're ready to be on the forefront of something new and innovative in Montreal!
12. Pisces: Plateau Mont-Royal
Daydreaming, fluid, and mysterious, Pisces come into their own in the Plateau. Pisces need to be sociable, easy enough with all of the bars and clubs in the Plateau, but they also require time to recharge, in a secluded garden, or wander through an alley. The Plateau's colorful houses and varied population lend it uniqueness, much like the Pisces sign itself.
