Helping you carve out an escape from the dull reality of current times, we have prepared a list of celebrities who are associated with Lucknow and have the same zodiac sign as you. So, grab a bowl of popcorn and drag the person sitting next to you into checking out this offbeat catalogue of the 12 astrological signs!

Aquarius (Jan 20 - Feb 18)

The water sign Aquarius is known to have original and eccentric ideas. This type of personality entails that people belonging to this zodiac sign have a knack for experimentation and what better place to practice these traits than your kitchen?! Now that we know this, it doesn't really come across as a surprise that Chef Ranveer Brar is an Aquarian, too!

Pisces (Feb 19 - Mar 20)

Pisces usually feel like a fish out of water because they don't easily find people they can gel up with! But once they do, they form bonds and impressions of a lifetime. A similar case was that of Dr. Herbert V. Günther, a German Buddhist philosopher, who found the best of friendships in the 8 years he spent at Lucknow University. He also did some of his best research in those years so, if you share your sign with Dr. Günther, it's best you find your tribe at the earliest!

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 19)

Confident and motivated leaders, Aries are best known for their indomitable spirit and relentless determination. We believe that these words describe the nature of Dr. Ritu Karidhal Srivastava quite appropriately. If you too have your eyes on the moon, then take inspiration from a fellow Arian and pursue your dreams with full devotion.

Taurus (Apr 20 - May 20)

There's no zodiac sign who meets the bull's eye better than a Taurean and an example of this is actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui. With training in theatre from Bhartendu Natya Academy, he has done justice to a wide variety of characters! Get inspired by his oeuvre and put your Taurean discipline to work as you whet your artistic skills into a spectacular career.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

If you too are a Gemini then you are aware of the multiple personalities that live inside you and give you those mood swings. Wouldn't it be exciting if you could channel all of these as a writer- give all your personalities a voice through different stories? Take a cue from the marvellous pieces written by author Himanshu Bajpai and begin your own adventure!

Cancer (Jun 21 - July 22)

Hardworking and resilient- these are the trademark traits of a Cancerian personality. The latest personal story shared by Sumona Chakravarti, an actress who rose to fame with the soap opera Bade Ache Lagte Hain, speaks volumes of her strength and persevering nature. If you too are a fellow Cancerian, then we are sure that you can connect with such stories on a deeper level because you have countless such tales of your own!

Leo (Jul 23 - Aug 22)

The upbeat songs sung by Kanika Kapoor can immediately make a person get on their feet and start dancing. The warmth that her melodious voice exudes is typical of a Leo who knows just how to be the life of the party. If you too share your zodiac sign with her, then let your ambitious spirit guide you to the doors of success because it is never too late to start!

Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)

Virgos are creative and perfectionists. If you are a Virgo then you'll be proud to know that you share your zodiac with Anupam Shyam. This BNA alumnus truly did justice to his zodiac sign when he played the role of Thakur Sajjan Singh, on Mann Kee Awaaz Pratigya. We are sure that all Virgos reading this right now, are going in their head- "I knew this. I had an intuition."

Libra (Sep 23 - Oct 22)

Are you a Libra? Have you thought of politics as a career option? Libras are known to have a well-balanced approach to life, especially how they speak and that's why they are the best politicians. A living testimony to this is Sanyukta Bhatia who is the first female Mayor of Lucknow in 100 years!

Scorpio (Oct 23 - Nov 21)

Do you too feel emotions intensely? Well, that's how most Scorpions are wired, however, if you have a flair for words then you have an outlet for all those emotions. Just like your zodiac buddy and famous lyricist/singer, Amitabh Bhattacharya, who has given us gems like Iktara from Wake Up Sid and more!

Sagittarius (Nov 22 - Dec 21)

If you too have a love affair with Malihabadi Dasheris and are fluent in Urdu, then you have more than just your zodiac sign in common with Josh Malihabadi. A connoisseur of exotic words, his writings encompass myriad genres that speak volumes of his classic Sagittarius strength of being a good conversationalist.

Capricorn (Dec 22 - Jan 19)

If you are practical, ambitious, determined and born in late December or early January, then you possess the definitive characteristics of a Capricorn. Sharing similar traits is the famous personality from Lucknow, Mohammad Shakeel- an Indian freedom fighter, labour lawyer and later a member of the UP Legislative Assembly.
