Your home, your favorite coffee shop, your daily commute aren’t just written in the skyline — they may be written in the stars.

One of the most loveable things about Austin 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.

Aquarius: Cherrywood | Jan. 20-Feb. 18

The unique businesses of Cherrywood embody the eclectic nature of an Aquarius. This cozy little area, which sits just east of I-35, is packed full of cafes like Cherrywood Coffeehouse, restaurants like Vic & Al’s, and a few pocket parks.

Pisces: Holly | Feb. 19-March 20

Holly provides the perfect escapist moment for a Pisces to relax. This east Austin spot has the best of both worlds with access to the Lady Bird Lake Hike & Bike Trail, so Pisces can recharge their social battery, with proximity to some of the best restaurants the city has to offer.

Aries: Downtown | March 21-April 19

Known as the passionate and confident leader of the zodiac, an Aries would feel right at home in Downtown Austin. Living downtown will allow Aries to forget FOMO with Lady Bird Lake, 6th Street, and the original Whole Foods all within walking distance.

Taurus: Zilker | April 20-May 20

As a lover of loyalty, Taurus will feel right at home in Zilker, aka the “crown jewel” of the Austin Parks System. This central neighborhood has something to do, see, or eat (think: Uchi, Ramen Tatsu-ya, and Odd Duck) around every corner.

Gemini: Bouldin Creek | May 21-June 20

The extroverted nature of a Gemini means they tend to get along with all kinds of people — similar to Bouldin Creek. This historic neighborhood is home to the Texas School for the Deaf, a robust arts scene, and some of Austin’s longest-standing Hispanic-owned businesses like Cantu’s Mexican Imports.

Cancer: Mueller | June 21-July 22

The sentimental and gentle nature of this sign is the perfect match for Mueller. Dreamy and picturesque, visiting Mueller’s Lake Park and the Texas Farmer’s Market is a perfectly restful weekend recipe for a water sign.

Leo: Tarrytown | July 23-Aug. 22

Tarrytown is a perfect fit for the welcoming and proud nature that a Leo embodies. This iconic neighborhood — located just west of MoPac — boasts the Lions Municipal Golf Course, plus eateries like Moontower Bakery and Littlefield’s with a neighborly vibe.

Virgo: Allandale | Aug. 23-Sept. 22

This earth sign has very practical and grounded qualities, making the Allandale neighborhood a perfect fit. Centrally located yet serenely residential along Shoal Creek, Allandale is a great place to find street food and antique shops.

Libra: Travis Heights | Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Travis Heights’ active, yet small-town vibe is just as balanced as a Libra. Neighboring South Congress Avenue, Travis Heights will soothe this sign’s indecisive nature by putting some of Austin’s best food, shopping, live music, and hospitality right at their doorstep.

Scorpio: North Loop | Oct. 23-Nov. 21

The aura of North Loop’s picturesque strip perfectly encapsulates this water sign. Mysteriously tucked away, this unassuming neighborhood is full of vintage shops and late-night eats like Tyson’s Tacos.

Sagittarius: Rainey Street Historic District | Nov. 22-Dec. 21

As an adventure seeker, you’ll be able to make a speedy getaway from Rainey Street — with the closest access to I-35 — without being far-removed. Besides proximity to one of the biggest nightlife districts in the city, Rainey also offers access to the river and major thoroughfare Cesar Chavez Street.


It’s hard to miss this Writing on the Walls mural on East Cesar Chavez Street.

Capricorn: East Cesar Chavez | Dec. 22-Jan. 19

With how hardworking Capricorn is, they’ll be pleased to hear there are plenty of spots in East Cesar Chavez to network and work remotely. From Cenote to Flat Track Coffee to Cosmic Saltillo, there are plenty of places to post up. Afterwards, hit up Zilker Brewing or Whisler’s to decompress.
