What’s your sign? Are you a routine-lusting Taurus? An indecisive Gemini? Does being born under the sign of Cancer make you a moody homebody or are you an Aries-inspired natural born leader?
While many cultures have their own distinct zodiac signs and representative animals (for example, see our stamp issue celebrating the Year of the Rabbit, part of the 12-year menagerie that is the Lunar New Year), the most popular versions in our western world are the ones we find on the horoscope pages of our local newspapers, inspired by Roman, Hellenistic and Babylonian legend and symbolism.
Zodiac signs can be fascinating—whether you take the personality traits of your sign to heart and pay strict attention to your daily horoscope or merely see them as a conversation starter. They’re also often viewed as an interesting means of self-expression—and with that in mind, Canada Post will begin to roll out stamps bearing each of the 12 signs of the Zodiac, over the next three years.
