When it comes to picking a new and exciting travel destination, often just looking for the best deals or closing your eyes and spinning a globe can suffice. But, if you’re searching for something a little more unconventional and interesting, then why not choose your next destination based on your zodiac sign?

In the Western world, Astrology is usually solely based on the way that the constellations fall in the celestial elliptic, which is the path of the sun that goes around the earth’s sphere. There is more to zodiac signs that astrology. Your sun sign, moon sign and ascendant or rising sign all influence the way that you appear to others. This is also reflected in the travel destinations below, which are believed to match up with certain personalities and traits of travelers. So, is your zodiac sign promising you a whole new adventure?

Aquarius – Detroit, USA

January 20 – February 18

Aquarius’ love to act like a rebel, but they’re also believed to be true humanitarians who constantly seek everything which is experimental and innovative. It is important for Aquarius’ to feel as though they are making a difference, especially if it involves visiting locations that are off the beaten track. Kyrgyzstan is another wonderful location for you to visit as you can lose yourself in the Tian Shan remote mountains, go walnut picking or even go on a horse riding excursion.

Pisces – The Himalaya

February 19 – March 20

Pisces are dreamy and rarely have their feet on solid ground. They are known as the lovers and healers of the zodiac and are romantic, spiritual seekers. They often seek gentle air and downtime, so somewhere free of crowds is the perfect destination. Tibet is vast, beautiful and full of spirituality and peacefulness – all the things which they value in life. As the Pisces sign is symbolized by the fish, water is a huge appeal for this star sign so visiting Tibet’s sacred lakes, such as Yamdrok-tso or Nam-tso, where you can go for a swim, meditate and practice peace.

If you can, as a symbol of your birthstone, try and find a beautiful piece of amethyst jewelry during your travels to The Himalaya to maintain your feelings of inner calm.     

Aries – SoCal, USA

March 21 – April 19

The first sign of the Zodiac, Aries are young at heart and pioneering, as well as spontaneous. Often the party starter, the best getaway for Aries is Southern California, where you can enjoy the warmth of the sun by hiring a car and living your most glamorous life cruising up and down the Sunset Strip. You can experience hits of much-needed action, including surfing lessons or spontaneous drives just because you want to.

Taurus – Tuscany, Italy

April 20 – May 20

No one quite knows how to enjoy Earth’s finest pleasures than Taurus’. Their constellation may be the bull but they are easy to impress with beautiful surroundings. Italy, and specifically Tuscany, is the perfect travel destination as you can relax in a wonderful villa, enjoy a glass or two of fine Chianti wine and take in the stunning views. Be sure to make plans to see some of the best artwork in humanity’s history, including Botticelli’s The Birth Of Venus, which hangs at the Uffzi Gallery.

Gemini – Vancouver and Seattle, Canada

May 21 – June 20

As this star sign is made up of a twin constellation, Geminis are well known for often having a split or duo personality. This is often down to a love for meeting new people, communications and sharing ideas with others and being prone to changes. Visiting somewhere which satisfies these travel desires is a must and Vancouver and Seattle in Canada are the perfect destination. Just 2 ½ hours drive from one another, this is the ideal city mix. There is plenty to do in both cities that you are unlikely to get bored.

Cancer – Southern Coast of France

June 21 – July 22

Cancer is known for being a kind personality and their constellation of the crab means that they really know what “slow travel” is. As they are ruled by the emotional moon, it may be that you are most comfortable being in your own space, or shell, so this means having some comforts to enjoy during your travels. The Southern Coast of France is ideal, as it offers a very easy-going way of living and has plenty to enjoy doing at your own pace. From cooking classes to wine tastings and museum visits to afternoons at the beach, spending time here is sure to relax and refresh your mind.

Leo – Argentina

July 23 – August 22

Leos are the lions of the zodiac signs and are said to be ruled by the sun. Whilst many Leos love the spotlight, they are also huge softies at heart who crave romance, adventure and well being, like their birthstone, peridot. Travel is something that all Leos feel strongly about and the need to go somewhere which provides great stories is a must. Argentina has it all, from warm Buenos Aires evenings spent enjoying great food to days partying on the beach. Leos do nothing by halves, so plan fun and exciting hiking trips into the wilderness of Patagonia to soothe your need for adventure.

Virgo – Malaysia

August 23 – September 22

Whilst Virgo’s sign is the virgin, they are practical creators and are ruled by the Chiron asteroid. Virgo’s value luxury, organisation and well-being, but they can also come across as being picky when in actual fact, they constantly think about how they can perfect things. Because of this, many Virgo’s often feel that they need to spend time healing, so a spa retreat is the most suitable getaway. In Malaysia, there are many dedicated spas and wellness centres which offer luxurious relaxation, with trickling streams, plunge pools and relaxing zen gardens.

Libra – Istanbul, Turkey

September 23 – October 22

Libra is the most balanced sign and they are fair judges who value true balance, harmony and peace. As they are also ruled by Venus, they are romantics who can’t help but adore beautiful and attractive things. With intellectual and philosophy traits, visiting somewhere which is steeped in history and art is sure to be a trip worth doing. Istanbul is a city that sits in between two continents – Asia and Europe. As Libra’s hate choosing sides, you’ll get them both in one!

Scorpio – Johannesburg, South Africa

October 23 – November 21

Deep, dark and brace, Scorpio’s are drawn to mysterious things and are curious about almost anywhere and anything and can find the art which lies in everything. Appreciating the thrive and power it takes to survive in difficult times, Scorpio’s are bound to love Johannesburg. With past scars and a rich personality, the city’s turbulent history may only make you love and respect it even more.

Sagittarius – South America                                                                                                             

November 22 – December 21

If there is one word that attracts Sagittarius’, then it is expansiveness. They are ruled by Jupiter and are associated with reach and optimism. As truth-seekers, they are known to fly off the handle when a mood strikes and, with their other restless and wild qualities, a vacation spent enjoying the sights of South America is sure to soothe their soul. Backpacking around South America is not only an adventure of a lifetime, but a chance to do things you wouldn’t usually.

Capricorn – Hawaii

December 22 – January 19

The most driven and ambitious of the star signs, Capricorns are hard working and won’t be satisfied with any vacation destination. It must be somewhere important and where they can learn things about the world and community which surrounds us. For Capricorns, Hawaii is the ideal location as there are so many aid and charity programs to get involved in and enjoy the sights. This kind of vacation is perfect for the more serious thinkers, as it balances relaxation and giving back.

If you are heading on any kind of travelling adventure, then be sure that you have all of the correct visas and documentation. If you are travelling from the US or UK, then immigration lawyers will have all the information you need, as well as the government travel service and it is vital that, with Brexit affecting some people’s travel plans, you have everything you need to be sorted well in advance.
