One of the most loveable things about Lexington 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: Kenwick | Jan. 20- Feb. 18

The idealistic, yet self-assured vibe of Kenwick embodies the passionate nature of an Aquarius. Multi-colored, architecturally unique houses sprinkle the streets of this tight knit community. Formerly part of the Ashland, Henry Clay Estate, Kenwick has successfully formed its own unique personality driven by its historical roots, sense of self, and most importantly, community.

Pisces: Masterson Station | Feb. 19-March 20

Masterson Station provides the perfect escapist moment for a Pisces to relax. Not only is it home to the 650+ acres at Masterson Station Park, but it also serves as a hub of what to expect from the future of Lexington. Despite its ongoing developments, such as a new Publix, it’s equally solace nature makes it a textbook Pisces.

Aries: Woodland Triangle | March 21-April 19

Known as the passionate and confident leader of the zodiac, an Aries would feel right at home in Woodland Triangle. Like an Aries, the independent nature of Woodland is reflected in its numerous local businesses, including staples like Black Swan Books and High on Art & Coffee, as well as newer faces like Poppy & Pomelo and Dalhaus Fudge.

Taurus: East End | April 20-May 20

As a lover of loyalty, you’ll feel right at home in East End. Dedicated to their community, the East End is known for its resiliency and stability — even in the face of several changes — much like a Taurus. This neighborhood is not afraid of hard work, but also know when it’s time to sit back and enjoy the fruits of its labor.

Gemini: Downtown | May 21-June 20

The extroverted nature of a Gemini means they tend to get along with all kinds of people — similar to Downtown. The range of opportunities in downtown are endless, and depending on which street you turn down, you may find yourself in a totally different environment. Walk along West Main Street, and you’ll be greeted by marquees and a bustling environment, but a turn down West Second Street puts you in the scenic, peaceful solace of Gratz Park.

Palomar is a perfect fit for the welcoming and proud nature that a Leo embodies. With new developments like the Fountains at Palomar, it’s clear that this neighborhood seeks to stand out. A natural leader, Palomar exudes Leo energy with its optimism and courage.

Virgo: Meadowthorpe | Aug. 23-Sept. 22

This earth sign has very practical and grounded qualities, making Meadowthorpe its match. This neighborhood is most like a Virgo thanks to its humble and quick-thinking nature. It’s collection of businesses along Leestown Road, direct access to downtown, and historical pride of being home to Lexington’s first airport makes it one of the most humble, yet endeavorous neighborhoods in Lexington.

Libra: Southland | Sept. 23-Oct. 22

Southland’s active, yet small-town vibe is just as balanced as a Libra. Known for being home to farmers’ markets, concert series, and street festivals throughout the year, the neighborhood prefers the company of its community rather than be alone.
