Ever feel like the town you call home isn’t, well, your forever home? That’s because you’re astrologically destined to live elsewhere, honey. Here’s the U.S. city you should actually be living in, according to the cosmos.
AQUARIUS (JANUARY 20 – FEBRUARY 18): Salt Lake City, UT
You’re a quirky original who needs space to breathe and roam free…and work on your terrarium side hustle in peace. You’ll live your best life in up-and-coming Salt Lake City, where national parks, gorgeous wilderness, affordable real estate and an artsy, cost-friendly vibe dominate the scene.
PISCES (FEBRUARY 19 – MARCH 20): Austin, TX
Pack your cowgirl boots, Pisces: Your U.S. city soul mate is Texas’s musical state capital. Austin’s vibrant arts scene is perfectly suited to your dreamy, creative nature, and since nobody really has a real job here, you’ll fit in nicely. What’s more, the city’s obsession with all things lake life (swimming and boating) will nurture your water sign needs.
ARIES (MARCH 21 – APRIL 19): New York, NY
Blame that blazing fire sign energy, but you thrive with competition and wear your strength like a badge. In other words, you’re a natural New Yorker. With its huge scale, endless distractions and go-go-go energy, the Big Apple will seriously feed inner warrior. Just be sure to save those dollars (we know you’re prone to spending), since real estate doesn’t come cheap there.
TAURUS (APRIL 20 – MAY 20): Seattle, WA
Facts: You’re a rooted earth mama who truly relies on nature to anchor her soul. Verdant Seattle, with its spot on the Puget Sound and easy access to the Pacific Northwest wonderland (hi, Cascade mountains), will provide the battery recharge you innately crave—with all the comforts of a modern metropolis.
GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUNE 20): San Francisco, CA
As an endlessly curious air sign with a hunger for sampling life’s wares, the city by the bay offers the best of everything (hiking! wine country! beach! culture!). Plus, the temperate weather and gorgeous architecture will keep your grumpy twin alter ego mellowed out all year round.
CANCER (JUNE 21 – JULY 22): Boston, MA
Reserved and home-oriented, your urban match is the historical city of Boston. With its puritanically early bar closings and, let’s be honest, freakin’ cold weather, downtime here is innately hygge. Another plus: It’s a quick jaunt to open ocean (hello, Cape Cod weekends)— a must for the zodiac’s first water sign.
LEO (JULY 23 – AUGUST 22): Charleston, SC
You’re a lady of luxury, Leo—and Charleston, with its beautiful topography, elegant architecture, cobbled streets and horse-drawn carriages, will make you feel like a modern-day princess. Plus, folks are notoriously friendly there, meaning you’ll likely receive the gushing you crave...without having to work too hard for it. (Fainting couch, optional.)
VIRGO (AUGUST 23 – SEPTEMBER 22): Chicago, IL
Your hardworking, discerning nature means you crave a cosmopolitan city with the best of everything: job opportunity, culture, food and art. But you’re also a major sweetheart who finds brashness unappealing. Chicago, with its Midwestern friendliness, will both ease your anxieties and nurture your ambitions.
LIBRA (SEPTEMBER 23 – OCTOBER 21): Miami, FL
Tons of fun (but with a good head on your shoulders), you believe that life should be a party—and so does this glamorous beachside hub. Your general warmth and feel-good attitude is echoed in Miami’s tropical climate, and your hunger for good times will be sated by the thriving art and nightlife scenes. The best of both worlds, really.
SCORPIO (OCTOBER 22 – NOVEMBER 21): New Orleans, LA
For all of your finer qualities (see: cleverness, passion)—you’ve also got some serious mystery to ya, Scorpio. Which is why you’ll feel right at home in the Big Easy, with its rich history, melting pot of cultures and round-the-clock nightlife. (Bonus points if your house is haunted.)
SAGITTARIUS (NOVEMBER 22 - DECEMBER 21): Los Angeles, CA
With your extroverted personality and penchant for escape, La La Land, home of cinema and $15 green juices, is definitely your place. A vibrant metropolis full of likeminded optimists, this West Coast spot also makes for a convenient springboard to the rest of the world (very necessary for travel-hungry nomads).
CAPRICORN (DECEMBER 22 – JANUARY 19): Washington, D.C.
Straight-laced and ambitious, you’ll do best (professionally and otherwise) surrounded by folks who share your laser focus. Enter: our nation’s capital. With its small scale, navigability, beauty and history, you’ll also get the downtime you need to fuel the hustle…and maybe launch your congressional campaign.
