Each sign of the zodiac has its own unique traits, much like the communities throughout Western New York, as well as the things we're famous for.  Horoscopes can give us insight into the kind of day we might expect to have, and can highlight special talents and qualities.

    Aries

    March 21 - April 18

    Spirit Food: Chicken Wing

    Aries are hot and spicy, and love to experiment with the fiery things in life.  While the Anchor Bar may be the originator of the Buffalo staple, Aries waste no time in finding new and innovative ways to heat things up.

    Taurus

    April 20 - May 20

    Spirit Animal: Buffalo

    Calm and cool on the outside, the Taurus sets itself apart from the crowd, but still loves to socialize.  Others can get close to the Taurus, but only as close as Taurus will allow them. Don't try to convince this buffalo buffalo of anything they don't already believe in. You won't get far.

    Gemini

    May 21 - June 20

    Spirit Item: The Buffalo News

    Geminis have the gift of gab, and in Greek mythology, Mercury (Gemini's ruler) was the messenger who delivered news between the gods. Multi-task masters, Geminis like a little bit of everything, and truly believe variety is the spice of life!

    Cancer

    June 21 - July 22

    Spirit Town: Getzville

    Cancer's secret desires are all about safety: emotional, spiritual, romantic, and financial.  Cancers can be described as continually contradictory--compassionate one minute, jealous and catty the next, much like Getzville's historic buildings that are coupled with contemporary shops.  Softness and sensitivity with a panache for nurturing and protecting make Cancers special.

    Leo

    July 23 - August 22

    Spirit Location: Canalside

    With sunny and happy demeanor, the Leo is all about love. Born lucky and charismatic, this positive thinker attracts abundance in people and opportunities.  They survive stormy times with style and humor...even if you start as a tiny little dump, you can rise like a phoenix and become an attraction.

    Virgo

    August 23 - September 22

    Spirit Food: Beef on Weck

    Virgos are often viewed as fussy and narrow-minded.  But inside, not much compares to the inner light they bring. Like the flakes of salt and caraway seeds that may pepper your lap while devouring your favorite sandwich, the beef-on-weck possesses an inside that is juicy, tender and delicious, unparalleled by any other.

    Libra

    September 23 - October 22

    Spirit Fan: Buffalo Bills Fan

    "Can't we all just get along?" would be the phrase that pays for a Libra.  Always seeking harmony and cooperation, a Libra loves balance in their immediate surroundings. The Buffalo Bills fan is just as connected to their surroundings...and when you're pre-gaming in the lot, everyone comes to their tailgate.  Love 'em or hate 'em, when the Bills are on the field, everyone's on the same team.

    Scorpio

    October 23 - November 21

    Spirit Location: The Statler

    Scorpios are powerful, with intense and dramatic relationships.  The "old soul" of the zodiac is wise and dignified, often possessing answers to questions that haven't been asked yet.  Like the mysterious Statler, Scorpios have inner secrets, but passion, desire, and power go hand-in-hand, all but guaranteeing success. A haunted past life can't be ruled out.

    Sagittarius

    November 22 - December 21

    Spirit Attraction: Darien Lake

    Sags are notoriously optimistic, with their sights always aimed upwards, mimicking their astrological symbol -- The Archer.  They believe anything is possible, even having weight guessed correctly, or winning the BIG stuffed animal, and are happiest on the move with lots to do, especially outside. A "something for everyone" atmosphere is best for this sign.

    Capricorn

    December 22 - January 19

    Spirit Treat: Sponge Candy

    The powerful and resilient energy of a Capricorn doesn't need bells and whistles.  Quiet, unassuming traits silently push Cap to success.  The longest journey starts with a simple step, like the addition of baking soda to a sugary confection, creating a timeless Buffalo masterpiece.

    Aquarius

    January 20 - February 18

    Spirit Beer: Flying Bison Rusty Chain

    "Go home, grab a 6-pack and wait it out." Jimmy Griffin coined the phrase.  He was an original, just like this trend-setting zodiac sign.  Soft and nutty with just a hint of sweetness, Aquarians are philanthropic and always give back.  Not unlike Rusty Chain, an Aquarius goes well with anything.

    Pisces

    February 19 - March 20

    Spirit Event: Taste of Buffalo

    Pisces are extremely talented and gifted, and truly creative. With two fish in the astrological symbol -- one going one way, one going the other -- this sign often feels pulled in multiple directions.  Ruled by the planet of hedonism, this sign participates in the joy of food, especially when made for the one they love.
