Travelling by your star sign
“A word of warning, travelling with extroverted Arian or Libran personalities might strain your easily influenced emotions.” Expedia Topics:
Expedia.com.au, together with expert astrologer, Devorah, have harnessed the ancient discipline of astrology to shed light on recommended destinations for star signs and to reveal which of your friends and family are your most compatible travelling partners.
Aquarius (January 21 – February 19)
When it comes to travel, you are open-mined, independent and have no interest in the ordinary. You prefer ‘alternative’ holidays, where you can explore and embrace whatever comes your way. You crave mental stimulation and have a fascination for the ancient, as well as the technological, scientific, and astronomical.
Where to visit: Mexico, the UK or Peru.
Top travel companions: Geminis, Librans, Arians or Sagittarians.
Expedia travel tip: Aquarians need to remain entertained while travelling so it’s a good idea to plan ahead.
Pisces (February 20 – March 21)
You are the dreamer of the Zodiac and are an extremely perceptive, emotional and creative soul. When travelling, you are naturally drawn to places where you can escape reality and indulge in some ‘dream time’. Spiritual retreats, romantic cruises or simply watching the sun set over the ocean are perfect holiday options for Pisceans.
Where to visit: Tibet, Prague or Hawaii.
Top travel companions: Scorpios, Cancerians, Taureans or Capricorns.
Expedia travel tip: Pisceans like luxurious travel and want the best of everything.
Aries (March 21 – April 20)
You are the trailblazer of the Zodiac and only high-energy, exhilarating adventure holidays will suffice. As an Aries, you crave adrenaline so holidays that are pioneering or offer activities, such as hiking, water rafting or skydiving, are a perfect fit. You also embrace new experiences so will cram as much as you possibly can into one day.
Where to visit: New Zealand, Africa or Aspen.
Top travel companions: Leos, Sagittarians, Geminis or Aquarians. However, roaming the world with more cautiously inclined Cancerians or Capricorns will require lots of patience!
Expedia travel tip: An activities-rich itinerary is a must for adrenalin junkie Aries so make sure there are no gaps for boredom to creep in.
Taurus (April 21 – May 21)
Earthy Taureans are ruled by the Planet Venus, the Goddess of love and beauty, which makes you the most sensuous sign of the Zodiac. When it comes to travel, you want an itinerary filled with lots of pampering and pleasures. Luxury hotels, five-star meals, exquisite art and music are the makings for a perfect holiday in the eyes of a Taurean.
Where to visit: Cuba, Hawaii, Ireland or Hungary.
Top travel companions: Virgos, Capricorns, Cancerians or Pisceans. As complete relaxation appeals, it can be wise to limit time with sociable Leos and Aquarians.
Expedia travel tip: Taureans like to be spoilt so luxury is a must. Do your research though, so you don’t have to break the bank.
Gemini (May 22 – June 21)
You are always searching for a challenge and are recognised as a curious and adventurous traveller. Travelling gives you the opportunity to have exciting new experiences and learn something at the same time — essential ingredients in keeping the multi-tasking Gemini twins content. You want to explore and immerse yourself in the local culture while on holiday. The more off-the-beaten-track the better.
Where to visit: Amsterdam, San Francisco, Shanghai, Tokyo, or Scotland.
Top travel companions: Aquarians, Librans, Arians or Leos.
Expedia travel tip: Consider booking accommodation outside main tourist areas so that you get more of a feel for the local culture.
Cancer (June 22 – July 23)
You are the most emotional and sensitive star sign so you cherish the safe and familiar. If travelling abroad, you may want to opt for a boutique hotel or B&B for a more homely, welcoming feel. Your love of water makes seaside holidays a popular choice.
Where to visit: Italy, New Zealand, the UK or Niagara Falls.
Top travel companions: Pisceans, Scorpios, Taureans or Virgos. A word of warning, travelling with extroverted Arian or Libran personalities might strain your easily influenced emotions.
Expedia travel tip: Cancerians will benefit from reading traveller reviews to make sure they’re signing up to a friendly and warm experience.
Leo (July 23 – August 21)
Like the sign of Leo, the lion, you like to be the centre of attention and treated like the ‘King of the Jungle’. When travelling, only the very best will do. As an extroverted sign, you generally don’t enjoy off-the-beaten-track destinations but rather a first-class cruise stopping off at the world’s most famous and glamorous cities where going to the theatre and eating at lavish restaurants are high on the to-do list.
Where to visit: London, New York or Rome.
Top travel companions: Arians, Sagittarians, Geminis or Librans.
Expedia travel tip: Leos love to boast about their travel experiences so make sure you tick all the must-do’s in the destinations you visit and book ahead if something is popular so you don’t leave disappointed.
Virgo (August 22 – September 23)
Virgos are constantly striving for self-improvement and are very goal driven, even when on holiday. You typically enjoy holidays which allow you to be productive, so health retreats and trekking holidays appeal to you. As a Virgo, you are prone to worrying so you should steer clear of dangerous destinations or activities.
Where to visit: Swiss Alps, China or Singapore.
Top travel companions: Taureans, Capricorns, Scorpios and Cancerians. Avoid holidaying with lively signs like Geminis or Sagittarians.
Expedia travel tip: Virgos tend to get a little nervous when travelling. To keep your mind at ease, don’t leave the house without travel insurance.
Libra (September 24 – October 23)
The classic Libran is a peacemaker who strives for harmony in everything they do. Ruled by the planet Venus, you are also all about relationships, so solo travel should be avoided. Experiencing the arts, music and fashion are important to you when travelling, so destinations that ooze style and elegance are a must.
Where to visit: Paris Milan, Brazil or Ibiza.
Top travel companions: Geminis, Aquarians, Leos or Sagittarians.
Expedia travel tip: Librans don’t like confrontation so make sure you map out and agree your itinerary with your travelling companion well before your departure to avoid any arguments along the way.
Scorpio (October 24 – November 23)
Traditionally, Scorpios lead an intense and busy life. So when it comes to a holiday, many Scorpios crave complete privacy and seclusion, in a quest to completely unwind and drop out of society for a while. You are incapable of lukewarm feelings and this means you either love or hate a destination, so a lot of planning and research should be done in advance.
Where to visit: Jordan, Egypt or Madrid.
Top travel companions: Pisceans, Cancerians, Virgos or Capricorns.
Expedia travel tip: Research, research, research.
Sagittarius (November 24 – December 21)
Always researching, you could write a book on travel and are always keen to explore exotic destinations. You love to travel far in body and mind. Being adventurous, spontaneous and optimistic means you are great to travel with. You are often so focused on the end goal you don’t always look before you leap, preferring to trust your gut instinct.
Where to visit: India, Morocco or Jordan.
Top travel companions: Arians, Leos, Aquarians or Geminis.
Expedia travel tip: Sagittarians thrive on spontaneity so they will love offers for mystery hotel deals around the world.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 20)
You are conservative, respectful, discerning and generally admire history and tradition. You are likely to enjoy travelling to UNESCO world heritage sites or visiting places that hold cultural or historical significance. Visiting world-famous art galleries and museums will be high on your agenda.
Where to visit: London, Washington, Prague, Amalfi Coast or Paris.
Top travel companions: Taureans, Virgos, Scorpios or Pisceans.
Expedia travel tip: Capricorns should read up on all the activities their destination offers to feed their hunger for all things cultural and historical. Devorah is a metaphysical practitioner and teacher, and a professional astrologer with qualifications in Psychological astrology.
