Travel in 2023, according to your star sign

If you’re starting to think about where you might like to head on your next trip, have you considered how your zodiac sign might affect your preferences?

“Fancy hotel or shoestring bed and breakfast, warm climate or chilly air, wet surroundings or dry destinations – our favourite holiday spot is powerfully linked to who we are astrologically,” says mystic and astrologer Inbaal Honigman.

Meanwhile, astrologist, energy mentor and psychic Julie Chandler says the element state (fire, earth, water, air) and ruling planet for each sign are what influence our likes and dislikes. “These planets and elements each hold key factors which subtly impact the sign they rule, like a coded message that’s imprinted from birth.”

Here, our astrologists run down each star sign and suggest ideal destinations for next year.

Those born under Aries (21 March to 19 April) are “Fiery, active and busy, they rarely sit down, and don’t appreciate too much peace and quiet. This would cause them to pick a perfect spot that is exhilarating and unstoppable, popular and loud,” says Ms Honigman.

“A crowded, noisy, muddy music festival outdoors would give them the opportunity to dance, and skip between different acts and stalls. Another very Aries destination is the Inca Trail – combining sweeping views, dangerous paths and hours of hiking to create one of those once-in-a-lifetime adventures.”

With Venus as the ruling planet, Taureans (20 April to 20 May) enjoy the finer things in life. Ms Chandler says: “Think beauty, romance and art – (they are) naturally pulled to rustic, earthy vibes as an earth sign, with the aesthetic eye to match.” Which is why she suggests the Italian cities of Venice and Rome.

“Being located out of the city with the freedom to travel in would be great for this sign so they can get peace, preferably with a view, then the stunning romantic beauty of the city architecture.”

Symbolised by twins, Geminis (21 May to 20 June) have “equal and opposing views on anything, from flower arranging to parenting. They’ll see both sides of the argument”, Ms Honigman explains.

Therefore, they need an exciting holiday destination that offers urban exploration and the great outdoors: “A city such as LA, that can offer vast beaches like the long and youthful Venice beach, and also Rodeo Drive, home to some of the poshest shops in the world, will let a Gemini choose, which ‘twin’ they are each morning. Or perhaps Israel, where one road links the snowy mountains with the sandy desert.”

“Cancer, a water sign, is ruled by the moon. We are talking waves and being blissfully in tune with the flow of nature for this sign,” says Ms Chandler. That’s why Cancerians (June 21 to July 22) love to be by the ocean.

Ms Chandler recommends “somewhere like the Greek islands with a beautiful expansive view of the sea, beautiful beaches and the moon rising in the sky – think Santorini”.

As the astrological king of the jungle, Leos (23 July to 22 August) love “being treated like royalty. They appreciate a destination that sounds good, looks good in pictures – and offers luxurious treats aplenty,” says Ms Honigman.

For a winter break, she suggests Courchevel in the French Alps: “Every ski run, every shop and every cafe has more than a hint of luxe about it.” Alternatively, Barcelona has “so many unique corners, a Leo could spend days securing the nicest spots to have a hand-cut Iberian ham sandwich or secret recipe Catalan ice cream”.

Virgo (23 August to 22 September) is “a practical sign who likes routine. Travel is exciting to them as long as it’s organised,” says Ms Chandler. Virgos will also be “pulled towards the idea of language and education, so somewhere they can embrace a new culture” is ideal.

Croatia, might be a good choice for Virgos, she suggests and: “Opting for somewhere close to the forest will cater to their earthly energy.”

“The sign of the scales, which represents Libra, tells us that they weigh things up, think things through – but it’s a never-ending endeavour,” says Ms Honigman. Libras (23 September to 22 October) are “always happy to take a holiday – but they honestly don’t mind where to!”

Therefore a small-ship cruise would be “right up their street – relaxing, non-demanding and totally liberating. They’re also quite intellectual, so they’d love a destination steeped in history, such as Athens, in Greece.”

A water sign ruled by Mars and Pluto, Scorpio (23 October to 21 November) likes “upbeat activity holidays where they get a sense of achievement”, says Ms Chandler.

They are “also about transformation and detox so they’d enjoy a remote phone-free retreat, as long as they could be active within it. They may be pulled to go as far away as they can e.g. finding a retreat in Mexico.”

“Sagis are unbound, uncensored explorers and they love to discover new paths and new trails,” says Honigman. For Sagittarian travellers (22 November to 21 December) a busy itinerary is key, but that doesn’t necessarily mean high-octane activities.

“Island hopping around Thailand would be great for Sagittarians who love to rest beside the sea. Or a fabulous few days in New Orleans, where the multitude of cultures and views would keep them thrilled every day – and night.”

As an earth element, Capricorns (22 December to 19 January) like the outdoors. Ms Chandler says:  “Ruled by Saturn, they enjoy something with discipline that requires patience for the outcomes. Being detail orientated, they would relish a mountain climbing or rambling holiday. Even skiing would be great as they would enjoy getting their teeth into the practice of learning to ski.”

Likely to enjoy solo travel, Aquarius (20 January to 18 February) loves “being left alone. Not aloof, not snobby – they just appreciate their own company, and love a chance to recharge their batteries,” Ms Honigman says.

“A few days in Poland could be just the ticket – the pier at a quiet seaside town, maybe a peaceful salt mine, and a historic memorial tour, would together make a wonderfully unique trip for an Aquarian. Or a boat tour off the coast in New Zealand – and an underwater observatory, to enjoy the silence of the ocean.”

“Pisces is our big dreamer, they will think big for their travel,” Ms Chandler says. “Also an image maker, they will love photography and scenery.”

Ruled by Uranus, Piscian holidaymakers (19 February to 20 March) would suit “places such as Thailand or on an African safari, where they can take in the beautiful scenery and be living a dream they’d always wanted to achieve.”
