Where You Should Vacation In 2019, According To Your Zodiac Sign
If you're already thinking that 2019 is the year you're going to travel somewhere new, exciting, and fun, then it's definitely not too early to start planning. According to SkyScanner, the best time to book an international flight for the most inexpensive airline tickets is about two months in advance — meaning you can start booking now for a spring getaway, or at least get a plan in place for another time of the year. The only problem? There are so many incredible places this world has to offer that it's almost impossible to settle on just one. Picking the right destination can be overwhelming, as you want to make sure it's the perfect fit for you. One way to do that is to pay attention to your zodiac sign to figure out where you should book your 2019 vacation.
Since your zodiac sign can point out so much about you, from personality traits to what really makes you happy, it makes sense that it can be helpful in choosing the best trip for you. Below are some travel suggestions from astrology experts Katie Huang and Paula Pavlova, who are also the founders of Moonbox, a wellness monthly subscription box that is based around the lunar cycle. Huang and Pavlova have put together an amazing list of the best vacation destination depending on your zodiac sign, and every single place sounds like it would make the most wonderful trip ever. Not only are they based around your sign's traits, but they can also give you a unique idea you wouldn't have thought up on your own. Check them out below and start planning!
Aries: Costa Rica
Huang and Pavlova point out that, as an Aries, you love daring activities that give a serious adrenaline rush. They said, "Think anywhere where you can do something that brings out the excitement in life… cave diving, bungee jumping, skydiving, white water rafting, the list goes on! Aries is known for bravery and always loving a good challenge, so wherever they go, as long as there is some sort of adventure, they are bound to find a way to have a heck of a good time! Aries is ruled by the element of fire, so excitement is key to fanning the flames that make them feel most alive. Additionally, each Aries is independent and likes it their way or the highway, tending to act and travel on instinct rather than plans." Costa Rica is a great option, as it's full of adventurous opportunities.
Taurus: Amalfi Coast, Italy
Huang and Pavlova said, "Luxury loving Taurians will always bode well for a visit to the stunningly beautiful Amalfi Coast in Italy. Wine, dine, and take your sweet time as you tour through the cliffs, islands, and delicious food this land and sea has to offer. The Amalfi Coast is a gorgeous 50 km coastline stretching along the southern edge of Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula.
"As a Venus ruled sign, Taurus loves to indulge in sensual pleasures like good food and drink, and there should be no shortage of this here. Additionally, Taurus is an Earth sign and is connected to nature, so they’ll really enjoy the scenic views between the port city of Salerno and clifftop Sorrento as they wind past grand villas, terraced vineyards and cliffside lemon groves."
Gemini: New York, New York
The Moonbox founders said, "Gemini is the first to love this fast-paced city that never sleeps! With a vast plethora of options, experiences, and opportunities for social interaction, New York is very lively with places, nooks, and crannies to explore. Geminis like variety and their dual nature will have them keen on adventuring through literally everything that the city has to offer. While many other cities might also do the same, there’s nothing quite like the hustle and bustle of New York City!
"Geminis are also air signs, meaning they are quite hard to lock down and love quickly bouncing from one place to the next. This is what makes New York the perfect destination: everything is right at their fingertips, at all times. The possibilities are truly endless!"
Cancer: Great Barrier Reef, Australia
Huang and Pavlova said, "While they are known for being homebodies and certainly enjoy the comfort of their cozy nest, Cancers, when feeling secure, will come out of their shell for some fun in the sun. That being said, if you haven’t done much international travel, perhaps a vacay to another English speaking country would make you feel a little more at home and at ease. Connect to your Water element and fellow sea creatures by taking a dip in the Great Barrier Reef off the coast of Queensland in northeastern Australia - it’s a whole new world under there. From boat rides to snorkeling to scuba diving, and even helicopter tours, there are so many different ways to explore this amazing ecosystem (which is actually the largest living thing on Earth)!"
Leo: Bali, Indonesia
"Leos love a place where they can be their most royal, regal, and naturally fierce selves," explained Huang and Pavlova. "Bali is a an artistic, exciting, inspiring place where they can connect to that inner animal spirit, let down their mane, and let their hearts roar! Plus, it doesn’t hurt that this beautiful island also offers some of the most luxurious and pampering spas, retreat centers, and wellness experiences available around the world.
"Fiery and a natural born leader, this is the perfect place for any Leo to go and shout it from the rooftops. Leos love to spread awareness, kindness, and the benefits of self care, which is what Bali is all about."
Virgo: Machu Picchu, Peru
Huang and Pavlova said, "Besides the magnificent view, health conscious and nature loving Virgos will love getting in a good workout as they hike through Machu Picchu and parks of the Inca trail in high altitudes. The attention to detail that the people who built this ancient city gave to the architecture, agriculture, and layout will inspire any Virgo with enthusiasm. They love a well planned, well executed project and their ideas will begin flowing with all the projects that they can create, too.
"Most notably, Virgos are the ultimate protectors of the Earth and as such will love the sustainable aspect of the Sacred Valley. With gardens, mountains, farms, and pastures that run through this stunning place, the people have such a bountiful love for the land and desire to protect it."
Libra: The banks of the Seine, Paris
Romantic Libras will truly appreciate a trip to Paris in France. Huang and Pavlova explain, "Whether single or committed, all Libras will surely have an amorous time in the City of Love. Ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty, this sign enjoys elegant evenings filled with art, music, culture, and the possibility of a whirlwind romance, of course. Walking down the banks of the Seine offers a picturesque view in itself, but will also have you passing the Pont des Arts, the Louvre, the majestic Notre-Dame cathedral and the Île Saint-Louis. Libras are also inclined to the intelligent, beautiful, two words that well describe the vibe of cultured and artistically designed Paris, France."
Scorpio: Los Angeles, California
Huang and Pavlova said, "Scorpio is a deep, sometimes brooding, but always beautiful sign… just like Los Angeles. LA has nearly everything anyone could ever want to do, from the beach to the snowy mountains just a short road trip away through the gorgeous Southern California valleys, deserts, and mountains. Enjoy all the terrains and beautiful nature this Earth has to offer in just one small radius of land. Palm trees, celebrities, yoga pants, matcha lattes, and the land of fame and sex spells out S-C-O-R-P-I-O almost exactly.
"Water, the element of sensuality and creativity rules this sign, so it’s no wonder that they will align with everyone from the artistic, free spirited, actors of Hollywood to the grungy Downtown LA artists and hipsters. Intrigued by everything and always passionate, Scorpios will love the vibrant spider web of highways to your dreams that is Los Angeles."
Sagittarius: Angkor Wat, Cambodia
Sagittarius, you may have already planned a 2019 vacation, but give this one a chance! The Moonbox founders said, "Fueled by an insatiable wanderlust, this sign is always on the move in their quest for higher learning. Drawn to philosophy, mysticism, and the studying of ancient cultures, Sagittarians will undoubtedly quench their thirst at Angkor Wat -- one of the largest religious monuments in the world.
"It was originally constructed as a Hindu temple dedicated to the god Vishnu for the Khmer Empire, gradually transforming into a Buddhist temple towards the end of the 12th century. With so many sprawling temple complexes before you, there is plenty of space for a Sagittarius to roam, absorb, and do what you do best... be free."
Capricorn: Easter Island, off the coast of Chile
Huang and Pavlova said, "Capricorns are hard, hard workers, so when they get away, a trip to truly unwind and relax is exactly what they need. This Earth based sign recharges best when they are alone or in small groups. Being that this is the most remote/uninhabited islands in all of the world, Easter Island just might be the perfect place where they can really get some alone time.
"Capricorns also tend to be into the why, the where, the how making this historically rich destination a perfect place to dive into learning while escaping from the busyness of the modern world. Not to mention, Capricorns have incredible stamina, so the distance is no problem and they’ll be ready to explore as soon as they get there. Not an inch of that island will go uncharted!"
Aquarius: Bullet train (Shinkansen) ride, Japan
Ready for something different? The Moonbox founders said, "You’ve always been a fan of the unconventional, Aquarius, and technology usually piques your interest due to your future-forward thoughts. Immerse yourself in a completely different culture in Japan and ride a bullet train (Shinkansen) between major cities, experiencing speeds up to 198 miles per hour! If you’re interested in fashion, check out the Harajuku district in Tokyo, or if trekking through traditional, historical sites is more your jam, head to Kyoto to marvel at some beautiful temples."
"The scenery of Iceland's glaciers, lagoons, and medieval cliffs create some of the most dreamy and ethereal vibes, making it the perfect place for ultra spiritual Pisceans to completely submerge into mystery and find themselves," explain Huang and Pavlova. "All Pisces people love a place where they can go with the flow and get in tune with themselves. They tend to be very artistic, open minded, curious, and joyful no matter where they are, so they definitely won't mind the cold.
"And if they do, the hot springs are just the place to be to be able to fully enjoy everything this magical destination has to offer! From cleansing, purifying, detoxifying soaks to epic views, Iceland is a dream come true vacation for every Piscean."
