The Stars Have Spoken: This Is Where You Should Travel To Next Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Editors posted on 19 April

Let’s face it: a lot of what the stars say is pretty accurate {more so, if what they say are all the good things, no?}. So this year, why not travel based on your zodiac signs too?

Keeping in mind Linda Goodman’s zodiac characteristics and matching them with characteristics of various cities in India, we’ve created this list. Here’s hoping that our predictions are accurate and that you have fruitful 2018 {travel-wise, at least}.

Oh, and in case you want start planning your travel right away, here’s the list of all the long weekends in 2018.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Your Spot: Rishikesh

Here’s Why: Aries individuals are characterised by their vivacity and their love for challenges. They’re usually not a fan of laid-back vacays. Since they’re bold and ever-ready for the craziest of adventures, the myriad adventure sports options {read cliff jumping, rafting, rock-climbing and the like} in Rishikesh would be right up their alley.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Your Spot: Leh, Ladakh

Here’s Why: Taurians are planners. They’re nothing if not predictable. Since they’re an Earth sign, tropical vacations might not help them unwind best. So, beaches clearly are out of question. One place that requires a bit of planning, are not beaches but can help Taurians enjoy nature best {since they so love it} is Leh, Ladakh.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Your Spot: Goa

Here’s Why: Geminis are known for being easily bored. They’re vibrant and energetic, so they also prefer holidaying in cities that let them do so much more than just chilling by the pool. Goa certainly ticks all the right boxes in this case. You can kick back with a beer by the beach, take up adventure sports like wind surfing, scuba diving or parasailing and well, it’s India’s party captial, so a good, good time is what you’re going to get here.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Your Spot: Kerala

Here’s Why: Cancerians are loving and deeply admire people they’re close to, especially their family members. One of the Indian cities perfect for family vacays is Kerala. Stay in a houseboat, chill at beaches, OD on the lavish sadhyas but also be prepared for multiple {mostly annoying} family photo-ops by the stunning waterfalls  Plus, being a water sign, they’re most in their element at tropical destinations.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Your Spot: Udaipur

Here’s Why: Leos love all things luxe. They also love attention and in their books, there’s rarely anything better than being pampered. With tons of lavish palaces {here’s looking at you Udaivilas}, massive pools and dedicated spa resorts, Udaipur’s probably one of their go-to holiday destinations {when the weather’s good, obviously}.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Your Spot: North East

Here’s Why: Virgos are known for their hardcore planning skills. So, why not put your extensive research skills to good use and plan a long and lovely vacay in the North East. You know it requires a lot of planning, arrangement of permits and getting your work and college tasks sorted {hey, if you’re going to the far east, you might as well go for a long time}. Plus, Virgos love nature and are clean-freaks {Hello, Mawlynnong}; These are reasons enough for them to make a trip to the Nort East.

For accommodation options and things to do in the North East, check these out: Yangsum Heritage Farm, Majuli, Elgin MoutPandim and Meghalaya Adventure Tours.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

Your Spot: Pondicherry

Here’s Why: Librans are associated with balance. Their itineraries are a mix of leisure time, art, culture and food. They also love to people-watch and explore hidden gems, so places with bustling markets, street-side bistro lanes and art galleries make them happy, very happy. With its French cafes, stunning churches, museums and galleries, Pondi would actually be the perfect match for Librans.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Your Spot: Andaman & Nicobar Islands

Here’s WhyWhile Scorpians are known for being competitive, another one of their dominant traits is that they’re passionate {about pretty much everything}. They’re romantic and loyal, and do not mind going out of their way to book fancy villas and private resorts. With its undisturbed beach resorts, stunning candle-lit cruise dinners and plethora of activities like snorkeling and scuba diving, it’s really a couple’s paradise.

Check out the lovely Sea Shell Resort for quiet, romantic stay in Andaman.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Your Spot: Auli, Bir & other areas in Himachal Pradesh.

Here’s Why: Considering that they’re a fire sign, Sagittarians are highly energetic and are also known for being adventurous. Taking risks is what keeps them going, so frequent adventure-packed trips are more of a necessity than an option for them. In Himachal destinations like Auli and Bir, various action-packed activities {read skiing, paragliding and trekking} will keep the Sagittarians happily occupied.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Your Spot: Madhya Pradesh 

Here’s Why: Capricorns are ambitious, seekers of knowledge and wish to make everything they do count {including travel}. So, they’d rather prefer visiting heritage sites than waiting it out for their turn at fancy spa resorts. With historical and spiritual gems like Khajuraho, Sanchi Stupa and temples in Chitrakoot, Madhya Pradesh will live up to a Capricorn’s required dose of knowledge and heritage. Other options are districts and cities in Karnataka {Mysore maybe?}.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Your Spot: Almora, Dehradun and the areas around.

Here’s Why: Aquarians are thinkers. They have a soft spot for places that stimulate creative thinking, and as the romantics would agree, the hills of Uttarakhand would probably be your best bet. They’re also one of the most humanitarian zodiac signs, which means that they care for the environment, for people and would love to travel for the benefit of both. In this case, The Goat Village and NotOnMap that promote eco-tourism and work towards the upliftment of the marginalised locals seem to be pretty sensible options.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Your Spot: Hampi

Here’s Why: Pisceans are artistically gifted, aren’t particularly a fan of the luxe and are curious cool cats who wish to learn the origin of pretty much everything. Hampi’s practically the perfect starting point for those who wish to understand the beginning of civilisation since it houses some of the oldest temples and ruins of India. Moreover, the pillars of Vittala Temple that emit musical tones are sure to catch the Piscean’s fancy. Also, since Pisces is a water sign, the coracle boat rides and bathing elephants in Hampi’s Tungabhadra River will serve them just as well.
