Astrology is often a go-to for help with dating, relationships, and jobs. However, your zodiac sign can also help you figure out fun activities, such as where to go on vacation! Let’s skip the generalizations on love and focus on the fun stuff.
While you’re making summer plans, you might want to think about which location fits with your personality. It might sound a little crazy, but it really makes sense. Why go somewhere that doesn’t mesh with how you vacation? If you’re laid-back, a busy city with a lot of tourist must-sees might not be your cup of tea. Likewise, laying on a beach as a busybody will just irritate you. Take the guesswork out of it and let us tell you where to go!
Here’s where you should go on vacation, based on your Zodiac sign:
Aries (March 21st-April 19th)
An adventurous Aries needs a trip to match! Skip the beaches and urban areas and head for the mountains this summer. Usually thought of as a summer destination, visiting Colorado in the summer makes for beautiful views, lots of hiking, and some awe-inspiring solo drives. Go to Rocky Mountain National Park and cruise down Trail Ridge Road to feel like you’re traveling through a postcard. Hike the Keyhole Route to Longs Peak, the tallest mountain in the park. You won’t be short on adventure in this national park!
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th)
The Taurus likes to be close to nature, but also remain comfortable. You’d like to look out your window to beautiful views, not the zipper exit on your tent. Visit Sonoma Valley for some wine tastings against a beautiful backdrop. Indulge in your lush side (we know you have one) and stay at a highly rated hotel with crazy-high thread count sheets and Tempurpedic mattresses. Eat, drink, and take an Instagram picture that makes it look like you enjoy the outdoors more than you really do.
Gemini (May 21-June 21st)
You’re all about exploring, learning new things, and meeting other people. An isolated beach vacation will put you to sleep faster than you can spell b-o-r-i-n-g. Just like The Little Mermaid, you want to be where the people are. Visit Galway, Ireland: the city is known to be one of the most friendly in the world! Irish people love to share their culture- and a drink or two! Explore museums, pubs, and live music of the city. Enjoy the fact that no one will tell you to just shut the fuck up already. You’ll get a true taste of the country, too: in addition to being the friendliest, Galway is known as the “most Irish” city in Ireland.
Cancer (June 22nd- July 22nd)
This crab needs to be near water! You’re also a romantic who loves when people are nice, so grab your significant other and escape to an inclusive resort! Stay in a hut on stilts in Bora Bora and forget the outside world as the two of your enjoy couples’ snorkeling, candlelit dinners on the beach, and plenty of splashing around in the water. This trip is about the two of you- try not to get caught up in the planning!
Leo (July 23rd- August 22nd)
The Leo would thrive on a solo vacation, or one with pals where you still get to be the center of attention. You should go on a birthday trip to New York City, a place where you can live out your theatrical fantasies and feel cultured all at the same time. Parade through Central Park like an outtake of Gossip Girl, try on the fanciest clothes at Bergdorf’s, and see a Broadway show! Leos will enjoy the fast-paced and creative city- as long as they don’t get too overshadowed in the process!
Virgo (August 23rd- September 22nd)
You’re a spiritual son of a bitch! Virgos thrive in nature and away from people- they want to be able to have a respite. Bring lots of books and stay just outside Sante Fe, New Mexico. Go into town and purchase some fair-trade, local crafts (your fave). At night, write about nature and re-read some of your most-loved novels. There’s no doubt you’ll feel recharged by the energy of the American Southwest, which complements your earthy spirituality to a T.
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd)
Let’s face it: you’re kind of an art snob. It would behoove you to visit somewhere refined with a great appreciation for the arts. Paris is a bit overdone, though, you know? If you feel this way, head to Florence, Italy. This beautiful city houses some of the best Renaissance art the world has seen, while maintaining the perfect level of exclusivity that you so admire. You’ll look chic sipping a cappuccino outside of a café in between all the art galleries you visit, we promise.
Scorpio (October 23rd- November 21st)
You need somewhere unusual. You like to scare yourself on purpose, so go somewhere creepy. Try Salem, Massachusetts to learn all about the gritty witch trials. You might disrupt the people who reside in this town, but isn’t that kind of the point?
Sagittarius (November 22nd- December 21st)
Jackson Hole, Wyoming is the perfect place for an active, athletic Sagittarius who also wants to meet people. Skiing villages are ideal for striking up a conversation, as many people are open to making friends. This are is great year-round, though, and you’ll find yourself on the move regardless of season. Grab some brave friends and hit the Grand Tetons- it’s not an easy challenge, but your sign is always up for the task.
Capricorn (December 22nd- January 19th)
You’re all about the history! Visit London, England, and see shit that’s way older than all of the crap we have in the U.S. Even the pubs you’ll drink in are older than anything in our country! You’ll love the Tower of London, the British Museum, Buckingham Palace, and the numerous impressive churches in the city. Even just standing in London, you can feel the history- get a little lost and you’ll almost feel as though you’ve stumbled through time.
Aquarius (January 20th- February 18th)
You’re definitely your own person. An Aquarius doesn’t want to go on the same vacation that everyone else is doing, and doesn’t care who joins them. Head to Madagascar, an island that has remained surprisingly untouched by the disgusting hands of travelers. The island is huge, and offers plenty to see and learn about: there are beaches, rainforests, and reefs. Take a picture with a lemur-this is the only place the animals are indigenous to- and make your friends jealous of your unique vacation.
Pisces (February 19th-March 20th)
You’re a lost dreamer, and you want your vacation to be the escape from reality that you imagine in that mystical brain of yours. Dive into the blue waters of Grace Bay, Turks and Caicos, which has a hue you’ve only dreamed of. Spend time under a shady umbrella, dreaming of living your whole life here, or rent a sailboat for a romantic adventure with your partner.
