One of the most loveable things about Boston is the distinct character found in each neighborhood, district, and corner of town. They all have their own personalities and purposes — some would say it was written in the stars. Let’s take a look at how our neighborhoods align with the zodiac signs.
Disclaimer: With only 12 zodiac signs, we couldn’t mention every one of Boston’s neighborhoods. Let us know if we missed your community + we’ll share which zodiac sign we think is the best fit.
Aries: South Boston | March 21-April 19
The bold and courageous leaders of the zodiac need a neighborhood that’s just as fierce as they are. Southie is giving us major fire sign energy, with exciting businesses like PKL + Cannonball Cafe constantly popping up.
Taurus: North End | April 20-May 20
These food and beauty lovers will feel right at home in our city’s Little Italy. Taureans can eat their way around the area’s many pasta places and classic cannoli spots.
Gemini: Fenway-Kenmore | May 21-June 20
As the home of Fenway Park, MGM Music Hall, thousands of Boston University students, and one of our most iconic unofficial landmarks, this neighborhood is just like Geminis: there’s something for every facet of your personality.
Cancer: Dorchester | June 21-July 22
Cancers are known to be nurturing and sentimental — a perfect fit for one of the most community-focused neighborhoods in Boston. Did you know that Dorchester is home to the country’s first community health center and first-of-its-kind Vietnamese Community Center?
Leo: Beacon Hill | July 23-Aug. 22
No neighborhood could better fit for the showoffs of the zodiac. This sign is not afraid to let its presence be known — similar to Beacon Hill’s popular tourist spots, like Acorn Street and Louisburg Square.
Virgo: South End | Aug. 23-Sept. 22
This earth sign has very practical + grounded qualities, and can be a bit of a perfectionist. The South End’s beautiful brownstones and thriving young professional community make it the perfect place to calm a Virgo’s busy mind.
Libra: Back Bay | Sept. 23-Oct. 22
The zodiac’s most extroverted sign pairs perfectly with Boston’s most well-known neighborhood. Libras can find the sense of balance they crave with a quiet trip to the Boston Public Library or an energetic stroll along Newbury Street.
Scorpio: Charlestown | Oct. 23-Nov. 21
The enigmatic aura of Charlestown perfectly encapsulates this water sign. This slice of town is rich in history — Scorpios will want to visit the historic Warren Tavern and check out the Bunker Hill Monument.
We could also see Scorpio as East Boston, a neighborhood that’s also changing fast and that it can feel hard to keep up with all the updates from this side of town.
Sagittarius: Chinatown | Nov. 22-Dec. 21
These adventure-seekers need constant change and adventure, and where better to find that than the hustle and bustle of Chinatown? Sagittariuses will explore an array of mouth-watering dumpling spots, community murals + the iconic archway in New England’s only historic Chinatown.
Capricorn: Seaport | Dec. 22-Jan. 19
This driven and ambitious sign needs a neighborhood that is changing fast, just like Boston’s fast-developing waterfront area. Hardworking Capricorns can (attempt to) unwind with a game of darts at Flight Club, a facial at Breve Spa, or a drink from the Harpoon Beer Hall.
We could also see Capricorn as downtown and the Financial District. This neighborhood is home to hustlers and industry leaders who are always on the move. If you blink, you’ll miss them on their way to High Street Place food hall to grab lunch before heading back to the office.
Aquarius: Jamaica Plain | Jan. 20-Feb. 18
This neighborhood’s thriving local business and restaurant scene mirrors the eclectic personality of an Aquarius. We recommend that these air signs hit up Boomerangs for thrift shopping, Papercuts for a new read, and Monumental Market for a sweet treat.
We could also see Aquarius as Roxbury, a neighborhood that stands out from the crowd as one of the oldest communities in Boston with an amazing array of restaurants, museums, and historic districts to explore.
Pisces: Allston-Brighton | Feb. 19-March 20
Pisces are emotionally aware and introverted, as well as the most artistic of the zodiac — aka they’ll fit right in with this vibrant arts and culture community. Pisces: consider this your sign to snag tickets to a show at Paradise Rock Club or Brighton Music Hall.
