Consider this your vacation horoscope.
It’s almost halfway through the year and you’ve only used a few of your vacation days. Instead of spending hours online researching every place under the sun, why not let the stars decide where to go next? We asked Tali Edut of the AstroTwins to share what kind of travel experiences—and specific destinations—each sign of the zodiac would love.
Aries are adventurous sorts who easily get restless, which is why Maui is the perfect destination for you. Hawaii’s second largest island has endless hiking trails to explore, miles of beaches for surfing, and plenty of new activities for thrill-seekers. Kite surfing, anyone? Less active Aries revel in experiential travel—so if Burning Man has been on your bucket list go ahead and book that trip.
Taurus is the zodiac’s luxury-lover who enjoys the finer things in life, like an afternoon at the spa and high thread-count sheets. Taurus is also an earth sign, so you’ll want to head somewhere surrounded by nature. Combine the two and head to Mohonk Mountain House in New York’s Catskills Mountains where you can fall fast asleep in a big, comfy bed after indulging in the award-winning wine list at their restaurant.
Mercury, the planet of communication, rules Gemini so it’s no wonder you thrive in social environments. Book a flight to an exciting city, like Berlin, where you can try out a new language, chat up the locals, and stay out all night long.
Cancer is the zodiac’s homebody and domestic goddess, so on the rare occasion you do leave home you’ll want to find somewhere cozy that you can call your own. You’re also a water sign so you’ll be in your element (literally) somewhere near the ocean. “Cancers love being barefoot in the sand,” Edut says, “but they also like their space.” A peaceful beach vacation to somewhere like Nantucket, where you can hole up in a shabby chic cottage you rented on AirBnB, is ideal.
For Scorpios it’s all about finding things that no one else has discovered yet and exploring all of the nooks and crannies a destination has to offer. The souks of Morocco will provide hours of exploration for you. And because you don’t mind roughing it, consider getting off the beaten path and staying a few nights at a traditional Berber desert camp in the Sahara.
As the zodiac’s traveler, you are prone to restlessness and always looking for your next big adventure. While you’d be happy hopping into an airstream trailer and doing a cross-country trek, you also love international travel, especially anywhere that has a spiritual feel to it like Angkor Wat in Cambodia or the temples of Bagan in Myanmar.
Capricorn is the zodiac’s most goal-oriented sign. You push yourself to the edge and are ready to accept any kind of challenge. You’re also an earth sign, so get out into nature and sign up for that bike tour across Tuscany, or go on that mountain climbing expedition in Patagonia you’ve been daydreaming about for years.
Those born under the sign of Aquarius tend to be free spirits who love being surrounded by people. You’d fit right in in a city on the water with an international feel and friendly locals. Sydney, Australia fits that description to a tee.
As the zodiac’s fish, Pisces always want lots of room to roam. You’ll find a beach destination, like Tulum, truly restorative. Here you can escape reality by checking in to a yoga retreat and enjoying all of the beautiful sites this Mexican coastal town has to offer.
