Your birthday is more than just a moment in time. It’s an indicator of your personality — at least if you’re into Zodiac signs. From the bold Aries to the intuitive Cancer, each sign carries traits that usually tend to be pretty true to life. Why not take those innate traits and use them to plan your summer vacation? Here are the spots you should check out this summer, based on your summer travel horoscope.
You already got a sneak peek into the personality of an Aries: bold, a go-getter, willing to throw caution to the wind and dive into new experiences without a second thought. Enter: the awe-inspiring Torres del Paine in Chile. Hike this stunning route to see crystal-blue lakes, glaciers and towering mountains.
If you’re a Taurus, you enjoy the finer things in life: a day at the spa, a trip to a trendy eatery, fine perfumes. So skip the grueling hike and instead visit one of the most beautiful and serene places on the planet, like Bora Bora. Unwind in an over-water hut and go for a dip in its aqua waves.
A Gemini never stops moving. They want to see and experience everything — so a serene seaside retreat isn’t going to work if you’re a Gemini. Instead, set out for an ever-pulsing city such as Vienna. This Austrian city boasts arts and culture out the wazoo and signature treats like the Sachertorte, a chocolate cake.
If you’re a Cancer, you can probably instantly read the vibe in any room. Your intuition likely makes you a great friend but could also lead to exhaustion if you surround yourself with strong energies. So plan a trip with just one or two close friends to somewhere quiet and calm, maybe Carmel-by-the-Sea in California. It’s long been a haven for artists as intuitive as you.
Outgoing, fiery and passionate — these are three words that describe most Leos. They’re going to need plenty of space to roam and meet people when they go on vacation. Check out one of the hottest bar scenes in the country when you head to New Orleans, a city known for its lax imbibing laws and colorful pubs.
Are you a Virgo? Then you might be a little Type A — but in a good way! You appreciate things done correctly and logically. So, you should look for a trip that has the organization built in, like an all-inclusive resort where you can plan your daily activities months in advance. Try a Caribbean island or a swanky hotel in Mexico.
Libras are naturally gifting at balancing work and play. They want every aspect of their lives to be in perfect harmony — and that includes getaways. Libras should head to a well-balanced city like Rome, which offers opportunities to learn (think the Colosseum and Trevi Fountain), eat (hello Neapolitan pizzas and fresh pasta) and imbibe (you can’t get wine more locally sourced).
Scorpios are equal parts emotion and power, and they’re not afraid to go for what they want. They should travel to a place that’s as vibrant and bold as they are, like Tokyo. Its towering neon signs and constantly bustling streets emanate a distinct energy that will really jive with Scorpios. Plus, the culinary scene is amazing.
A Sagittarius is obsessed with adventure and accumulating knowledge, which is why a historic city like Cusco, Peru would draw one in. It used to be the capital of the Incan Empire, a place that drove the development of everything from math to astronomy. When you visit, bask in the ancient knowledge seeping from its ruins.
Capricorns are hard workers and always striving to reach a new goal — which sometimes leads them to miss out on experiences. So if you’re a Capricorn, travel somewhere where it’s impossible not to stop and smell the roses. Or rather, the tulips. Head to Holland to experience its internationally renowned fields of flowers.
An Aquarius is concerned more about helping others than helping himself. So if you’re an Aquarius, consider combining your travel with some philanthropy. Help United Planet work toward a more sustainable planet in beautiful locations like Costa Rica and Spain.
Pisces tend to get caught up in the world of fantasy, which can sometimes be a problem in daily life. But it’s definitely not a problem when it comes to vacation. Break free from reality and escape into a theme park like The Wizarding World of Harry Potter or Disney World in Orlando.
Now that you have some inspiration, start planning your next vacation. Whether it’s to the shores of Bora Bora or the tulip fields of Holland, you’re going to enjoy this custom-tailored getaway!
