Zodiac signs and travel
What is Zodiac Sign?
The starry sky can be compared to a trip. The atmosphere is mysterious, endless and full of wonders. For astrologers, the air is filled with pointers, and all this thanks to the signs of the zodiac.
Most of us are familiar with their signs of the Sun, namely in what zodiac constellation was this planet at the time of our birth.
However, is it possible to determine the best directions and time for travel based on this knowledge?
According to astrologer Kyle Thomas, the planet, the Sun and the Moon do influence our choice of travels.
So, how, where and why should you go?
Aries (March 21 - April 19), Spain
The country where the flamenco dance was born is the dream place for Aries. "Spain is full of bright colours and impressions," says Thomas. Aries has high energy and enthusiasm and is hungry for the holiday. While Barcelona and Madrid are great cities for culture and gastronomy, in sunny Seville you can find even more taste. In the city\'s Flamenco Dance Museum, Aries can enjoy emotional music, costumes and dance performances, and also take part in dance or music classes.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20), France
"As a zodiacal sign that favours feelings and pleasures, Taurus will feel the happiest in France," says Thomas, adding that beauty and romance in Paris will make the representatives of the sign feel at home. Plan time for romantic walks and leisurely dinner in charming cafes, where you can sit for hours sipping drinks and discussing art. Choose accommodation in the lovely Montmartre district, or perhaps Maison Souquet, where each suite is richly decorated with silky textiles and other boudoir touches.
Gemini (May 21 - June 21), Brazil
Gemini is one of the most adventurous signs of the zodiac. So, Thomas points travellers Gemini to Brazil - a place filled with hidden wonders that can keep the mind of intellectual signs. Gemini is a curious sign of the zodiac, always craving spontaneity. Rio de Janeiro is a bright choice for culinary temptations and a carnival spirit. But Gemini will be inspired by the colours and whimsicality of the hilly Santa Teresa neighbourhood, where artists bring their talents to enrich the local flavour.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22), New Zealand
"As a sign of water, cancer zodiac sign likes to be near an ocean or lakes," Thomas says. With so much natural beauty in New Zealand, Cancer will remember this vacation for the rest of its life. Indeed, with 9,300 miles of coastline, this Pacific country is ideal for a relaxing holiday on the beach. The best place for Cancer is on the North Island, where Auckland has a recreation centre that allows you to make a day trip to Coromandel Forest Park (about two hours away). The park fills the High Beach peninsula with diving and snorkelling reefs, and Hot Water Beach, where you can dig your heated mineral pool in the sand.
Lion (July 23 - August 22), Greece
Fire in every Lion leads to a severe love of travel. "The Lion longs for expression, inspiration and creativity, and Greece has a lot of passion," says Thomas, hinting at the country\'s cultural and social heritage. History lovers can\'t go wrong in Athens, one of the greatest cities in the world, or in one of the charming islands of the Aegean Sea. However, further south, on the coast of the Peloponnese, is Monemvasia, where the ancient castle and cobblestone streets echo the medieval roots of the city, and where poets and artists find solace under the Greek Sun.
Virgin (August 23 - September 22), California
"As a sign of the Earth, the Virgins love nature and enjoy their planned journey," says Thomas. "California offers the opportunity to travel along the coast or within the state, so they always move to the next location. A trip through the Golden State makes no sense, as travellers can roll from mountain to ocean or desert to metropolis all day long. One of the best tours is a day trip around Sonoma County, starting in the historic city of Sonoma, then west through the wine country to stroll through the Armstrong Redwoods State Nature Reserve and to end with a Pacific sunset in Bodega Bay.
Scales (September 23 - October 22), Quebec, Canada
The travel horoscope indicates Libra towards a place that promises stable fun and relaxation. This airy sign loves to communicate and enjoy the nightlife, and Montreal (Quebec) is a city with a rich culture, full of stimuli. The scales can balance their level with outdoor relaxation in the Mount Royal or the Botanical Gardens. You are spending your free time watching Canada\'s top drag stars in the famous Cabaret Mado, or dining in a gorgeous restaurant in Montreal like Candide, with changing monthly fixed-price menus.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21), Egypt
"As a sign of the zodiac, most associated with mystery and magic, the ancient history of Egypt will bewitch Scorpio and ignite their passion for the supernatural," - says Thomas. Naturally, Scorpions will find charm in the magnificent pyramids of Giza. About an hour south of Cairo and Giza, curious minds may think of the lesser-known (and less-visited) pyramids known as the Bent, Black and Step pyramids. On the Red (or Northern) Pyramid in Dahshur, curious Scorpions may even slip through its aisles to soak up the mystery of its inner corridors.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21), South Africa
"Sagittarius is known for its passion for travel and the need to explore so that South Africa will win their hearts," says Thomas. Indeed, South Africa has so many excellent travel options, from short or long safari trips to beautiful beaches and unforgettable wine tours. And while a visit to Cape Town is necessary, Johannesburg has recently become one of the most exciting cities in the world. There the fire Sag Globetrotters can grab the opportunity to try bungee jumping from a 100-meter high podium in a park of double cooling towers, turned into an attraction known as the Soweto Towers.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19), Iceland
Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, an ice sign planet aligned with the January Zodiac Sign at the beginning of winter. So the representatives of the sign will have a good time in Iceland, where natural beauty reigns. Capricorn can explore waterfalls, glaciers, hot springs and sea rocks, watching wildlife - from whales and seals to dead ends and foxes. Most tours start in Reykjavik, so choose a reliable company such as Pink Iceland, Intrepid Travel or G Adventures to show you the best of Iceland\'s extraordinary landscapes.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18), Japan
" Aquarius zodiac sign is the most visionary zodiac sign and always thinks about the next technological advance," says Thomas. So it\'s no surprise that Japan can easily capture every Aquarius. Few cities seem as futuristic as Tokyo, the largest metropolis in the world. There, progressive adventurers can enjoy a trip to the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation, which is called Miraikan. Located on the human-made island of Odaiba, it is a place where you can discover the exploits of human engineering, the future of robots and the essence of the universe.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20), Puerto Rico
The Caribbean region offers all travellers a little carefree pleasure. As a sign of water, Pisces are one with the sea so that they will appreciate an island holiday. The best city for Pisces is a place with a lot of vast and fascinating beaches, complemented by music and notes of romance, and San Juan, Puerto Rico is precisely such a place. On Condado beach, east of Old San Juan, a watermark can be found under the palm trees and catch high waves all day long.
Believing or not believing in horoscopes is everyone\'s own business, but it is often impossible not to notice how the characteristics of this or that sign differ in our personality. Of course, you shouldn\'t make your plans relying solely on the way the stars have risen today, but you should agree that pastime that suits you is much more enjoyable.
