Where you should travel in 2019 based on your star sign
For those of us with a constant urge to explore the world, picking a yearly adventure can be difficult. We could throw a dartboard at a world-map or consultant a travel magazine. But there’s another way to decide where we take our annual holiday – and that’s looking at the stars.
Whether you think astrology is a fun feature at the back of a magazine or something a bit more serious, it’s always amusing to see what your star sign says about your personality. So we’ve analysed the stars, compared them to a globe and decided what destinations match which sign of the zodiac.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Australia is perfect for adventurous, fun-loving, high-energy Aries. Book yourself an escorted tour where you can explore the many sides of Australia – whether that’s climbing the Sydney Harbour Bridge or diving in the Great Barrier Reef.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taureans are smart and ambitious but also appreciate sophisticated surroundings – so we recommend Italy. Whether it’s the ancient sights of Rome or the fine-wines of Tuscany, there’s plenty to keep a cultured Taurus happy.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
We know how easily-bored Geminis can get, so we reckon a multi-stop escorted tour, twin-city or cruise would suit this energetic sign. Especially if the cruise ship is packed with activities: such as Royal Caribbean , Carnival, or NCL .
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer’s like their creature comforts and – just like their animal counterparts – enjoy relaxing on the beach near the water. So we recommend a stay in a luxury Caribbean resort, such as Sandals where everything is included!
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
It might seem a bit predictable to suggest that the sign represented by a lion embarks on an African safari, but it fits. Leos are outgoing and the life of the party, so an adventurous safari is definitely up their street.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Highly organised Virgos don’t really need any help planning a holiday as they probably already have a spreadsheet mapping out their next five adventures. However, we know how much Virgos appreciate the beauty and finer things, so we recommend none other than Paris !
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Libra represents balance and – with Venus as their ruling planet – they are also romantics at heart. However, they don’t like anything fast-paced and can be a bit superficial. So we recommend Lake Garda, where there’s beautiful scenery, delicious food, and low-key adventure.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Discovering the occult in New Orleans – where else for the dark and mysterious Scorpio?
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Symbolised by the archer constellation and ruled by the solar system’s largest planet, Sagittarius is the natural explorer of the zodiac. So we recommend a cruise out to the Galapagos Islands.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorns are ambitious and always intimidating people with their curated knowledge – so it has to be a holiday destination that offers world-class museums, and fascinating culture. We recommend either the world powerhouse of Washington DC or the USA’s original capital of Philadelphia .
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
Free-spirited Aquarians will love the adventure that awaits them in Thailand . Whether it’s balancing their mind at a spiritual retreat, exploring ancient temples, or partying on the beach – this independent sign will love exploring this South-East Asian gemstone at their own pace.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
You’re the dreamer of the zodiac with a lot of creative, romantic and spiritual energy. The Islands of Tahiti can be found in the South Pacific and boasts many Pisces-friendly activities from long walks on the beach, delicious food, luxury resorts, and some of the best scuba diving on the planet (home to over 1000 species of fish).
