Wondering where to travel to in 2024? Why not ask your star sign? Healthista spoke to Astrologer Inbaal Honigman to help you plan your 2024 getaways
Every star sign has unique traits, and with one in three Brits now turning to horoscopes for advice, there’s no better way to match personalities with destinations than by using horoscopes.
To help you plan your 2024 getaways, Astrologer Inbaal Honigman has worked with WeRoad, small group adventure travel specialists for millennials, to reveal some core themes for earth, water, fire and air, alongside a series of bespoke destinations that have been paired with each of the 12 star signs.
Fire signs like Aries, Leo and Sagittarius love to overcome physical challenges when they travel. A gravelly mountain road to climb, an ancient, cobbled route to explore. They love moving fast and need a lot of stimulation.
Water signs like Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces enjoy being around water for their trips. A lake, an ocean, and more than anything – a waterfall would be the ideal backdrop for their travels. Caring and people-centred, they are curious about the story behind the destination.
Air signs like Gemini, Libra and Aquarius will just get an idea for a destination and go for it, their favourite trips can be anywhere, the thought just has to occur to them and then they’ll set about making it happen. Individualistic and sociable, they love meeting new people on their travels.
Earth signs like Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn love the dry heat of the desert. Rocks, sand, cliffs, they enjoy views that remind them of how small we all are on this planet. They’re happy to go solo so that they can choose each little twist and turn off their trip.
Aries (March 21st – April 19th)
Life is non-stop for those born under the sign of the Ram. There isn’t much that they haven’t explored, but they’d like to see so much more yet. Aries say yes to any physical challenges, and are bouncy and active every hour of the day or night.
They’re up at the crack of dawn even on holiday, looking for something to climb or scale, they don’t stop for meals and they’re still dancing at a beach party till after bedtime.
Their perfect destination will have many sporting activities to choose from, vast spaces to explore, and hopefully loud music.
Mexico, with its vibrant culture and versatile landscape, is the ideal destination for Aries. They’ll love the beach-to-club vibe, and they’ll enjoy the choice they have between mountain-top views and snorkelling along reefs.
Taurus (April 20th – May 20th)
The ultimate foodies of the zodiac, only the finest will do for those born under the sign of the Bull. They are open to innovations, but they also know what they like, in a posh restaurant or a street stall.
Taurus likes to feel comfortable and appreciate five-star travels, making use of any spa or games room on the premises. They understand that the best beauty spots require effort, so they’ll go on a four-hour hilltop track to get to a stunning view, but there better be a good coffee shop when they get there.
Their perfect destination will offer pampering around the clock and a rich cuisine from local and neighbouring cultures.
Vietnam, with its delicious cuisine and affordable luxury, is the ideal destination for Taurus. They’ll love the hospitality of the locals, the breathtaking views and competitive prices for wellness treatments.
Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)
The party never stops for those born under the sign of the Twins. Sociable and friendly, the thing they value most when they travel is an opportunity to meet new people.
Whether going to a busy market to acquaint themselves with the locals or joining a thriving cruise to get to know the other tourists, if it’s a busy activity, Gemini will love it. They appreciate any interactive pastime – games, sports, dancing and organised challenges. Their active nature is thirsty for person-centred experiences.
Their perfect destination will have a busy social scene and will feel culturally different to their country of origin because they like surprises.
Miami, with its busy nightlife and rainbow of nationalities, is the ideal destination for Gemini. They’ll enjoy the full and busy party vibe and the water parks and marketplaces, not to mention reclining on a sun lounger and chatting with strangers all day long.
Cancer (June 21st – July 22nd)
Shared experiences are the essence of life for those born under the sign of the Crab, and they’ll take someone special with them even on a solo trip. Sensitive and caring, their happiest moments are with the people they love, no matter the climate.
Whether they’re relaxing at a spa or sharing a cocktail together for hours, Cancer cares about the memories made together, and not about where or what.
In a quiet environment, they’ll get to have deep conversations with their nearest and dearest, and on a sporting holiday, they’ll join forces to beat the other team – as long as they feel like they’re part of something, that makes a great holiday for Cancer.
Their perfect destination will not be too busy so that they can focus on the people that matter, and give their full attention to them.
Switzerland, with its rolling hills and peaceful views, is the ideal destination for Cancer. They’ll adore the lakes and picturesque cities, where the quiet atmosphere will allow them to truly relax.
Leo (July 23rd – August 22nd)
Finding new ways to shine is the never-ending goal of those born under the sign of the Lion. Proud and capable, they’re willing to experiment with all sorts of ideas for having fun.
Before Leo tries a new skill, they’re almost certain they’ll ace it, but they’re not disheartened if they don’t. They could be riding a camel through the desert or abseiling into a cave, and they’ll feel exhilarated by getting out of their comfort zone.
Their perfect destination will allow them to combine those moments of personal greatness, with some downtime that’s pure luxury, like a personal chef or a couple’s massage.
Western Australia, with its combination of adrenaline-rush activities and top-level hospitality, is the ideal destination for Leo. They can’t get enough of the dreamy locations and once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
Virgo (August 23rd – September 22nd)
Those born under the sign of the Virgin love to get to know the destination by walking it. Organised and neat, they’ll visit places of culture and history and will try and find little-known facts about the area.
Virgo has a love of exploring, and they’ll peek behind the tourist streets, finding side roads and markets visited only by those in the know. With their little linguistics app, Virgo will communicate with café owners and get dinner recommendations from the old men playing backgammon in the town square.
Their perfect destination is one that allows them to explore uninterrupted and has an abundance of crumbling temples and ancient features.
Rome, with its adorable side streets and characterful markets, gives Virgo plenty of cobbled miles to walk. It’s an ideal destination for those who want to see the link between history, culture and architecture.
Libra (September 23rd – October 22nd)
Travellers born under the sign of the Scales need a destination that’s graceful and pleasant to explore. Elegant and quiet, Libras go on holiday to find peace, not to train for a triathlon, and want to feel like every day is a creative and joyous haven of happiness.
Stunning sightseeing and gorgeous architecture – Libra doesn’t ask for more than that. A balancing of opposites excites them, such as new art in an ancient setting, or modern vehicles on a timeless road.
Their perfect destination will boast a combination of picture-worthy moments and relaxing activities that fulfil them creatively.
Bali’s temples, corals and resorts make the island the ideal destination for Libra. Every view is attractive, and every beach is suited for peaceful meditation.
Scorpio (October 23rd – November 21st)
Travels off the beaten track are the only way to go for those born under the sign of the Scorpion. Intense and mysterious, Scorpios tread the fine line between fire and water.
A passionate sign, ruled by the red planet Mars, Scorpio is nonetheless a watery creature. Their fiery aspect is looking for a holiday in the desert, hiking through canyons and sweating on safari.
Their perfect destination will offer both. An oasis, a sea in the desert, a waterfall on the edge of a red-hot cliff.
Jordan’s desert tracks leading to the Dead Sea are a Scorpio’s dream. Fire and water, ancient and modern; a unique destination for avid explorers.
Sagittarius (November 22nd – December 21st)
Any trip is a welcome holiday when it comes to those born under the sign of the Archer. Free-spirited and curious, Sagittarians are never caught without a passport in their back pocket, just in case the opportunity to board a plane should arise.
They love to go away, and sometimes forget to come back. Sagittarians enjoy anything and everything on vacation, from cheesy cocktails to sophisticated dinners with royalty. From splashing in the pool to hiking in fields. They’re not choosy, as long as it’s fun, friendly and filled with experiences.
Their perfect destination would be open 24/7 and open and accepting of wild tourists and their crazy antics.
Jamaica is an island as free-spirited as they are. Sagittarians will feel right at home mingling with exhilarating activities in the water and outside of it.
Capricorn (December 22nd – January 19th)
Luxury is the name of the game for those born under the sign of the sea goat. Magnanimous and hard-working, Capricorns like to work hard and play hard. They don’t want to work on vacation, they want their vacation to work for them.
Capricorns get on that plane and want to completely switch off, so anything and anyone who can help them relax is required on board – a beautician, a wellness coach, some tour guides offering champagne. The focus is on having an amazing time while making no effort at all.
Their perfect destination will have a 24-hour concierge service and cuisine from any continent on earth.
Japan can provide a holiday that’s pure luxury, while still being an extremely unique experience. Capricorns will love trying something new, preferably in the most modern of luxe settings.
Aquarius (January 20th – February 18th)
Learning and growing is an Aquarian’s lifetime quest, and when they travel, the learning doesn’t stop. Intellectual pursuits are at the heart of travel for those born under the sign of the Water-bearer, and they want their brains engaged while their eyes enjoy the sights.
For an Aquarius, a new experience is not limited to just enjoyment, there are new things to learn behind every interaction. Their thirst for knowledge is second-to-none and their passion to experience all about a new culture can drive them, map in hand, to the ends of the earth.
Their perfect destination will be very unlike anything they know, with vegetation, culture and religion different to their own.
Sri Lanka may be the ideal holiday spot for an Aquarian. Much to learn, much to explore, and everything is different to anywhere else.
Pisces (February 19th – March 20th)
Romantic Pisces is a water sign and therefore loves anything to do with water. A cruise, a canal-side walk, an underwater observatory or white water rafting are all favourite options for those born under the sign of the Fish. A wet Pisces is a happy Pisces.
As they snap their life preserver on or slip into the wetsuit, or tuck their hair into the swim cap, they stop and think ‘Yes, this is the perfect holiday because I haven’t been fully dry in days’. Pisces enjoy getting to know people and learning their language, so they’ll find their way to the grittiest of local bars.
Their perfect destination will be easy-going and warm, with waterways and wet options that they can explore multiple times a day.
Amalfi Coast is a setting that’s more water than land. Pisces will feel absolutely catered for.
