Plan your next vacation according to your zodiac sign. Beaches.com recently partnered with U.K.-based astrologer Francesca Oddie to share how each zodiac sign should travel this year. The new travel guide reveals the ideal vacation types, cocktails, travel buddies and essential items, according to each sign.
Aquarius (Jan. 20–Feb. 18)
A road trip is the ultimate Aquarius holiday. No matter where they are going, they will make friends along the way, and acquire stories and memories. The best trip is something off the beaten path where they might meet people from different cultures and won’t be treated like a tourist.
Pisces (Feb. 19–March 20)
Pisces are artists and mystics of the zodiac, they blend in everywhere they go and will be happy relaxing on the beach, painting in a meadow, learning traditional dance, meditating in India or participating in charity work. The best vacation type would be a yoga retreat.
Aries (March 21–April 19)
Aries want to be where the action is. They want to find cool new destinations, the best attractions and discover new trends before anyone else. The best type of vacation for Aries would be an adventure vacation with lots of action. They love to be independent and tour the destination themselves.
Taurus (April 20–May 20)
Being ruled by Venus, Taurus is the sign of luxury. When they go on vacation they are going to rest, be pampered and leave feeling relaxed. The best holiday involves soft sand, comfy beds, delicious food and lots of naps. The best vacation type is a luxury beach resort in Turks & Caicos filled with chill and luxe vibes.
Gemini (May 21–June 21)
When Gemini goes on vacation, they are interested in everything from seeing the city, exploring the museums and spending the afternoon regaling the facts they learned from their adventures. The best vacation type would be a city with a beach because they get to experience the buzzing nightlife but also get to relax and learn more about the city they are in.
Cancer (June 22–July 22)
Cancers consider every need for the journey and what they might need on vacation. Security is one of the ultimate values, so the destination needs to provide a sense of home. One of the best vacations is a family villa on an island somewhere in the Caribbean that provides a homey, family feel.
Leo (July 23–Aug. 22)
Leos are here for the high life. Their ultimate vacation destination is the latest hot spot in town. They want fun, parties and glamour. Travelers who vacation with a Leo are in for a treat.

Virgo (Aug. 23–Sept. 22)
A Virgo may be anxious on the way to the airport and might take a couple days to settle in. You may be able to find them at a health retreat or yoga studio, where their mind can have a chance to breathe, slow down and recalibrate. The best vacation type is somewhere clean where they can still keep up their health routine and that leaves them feeling rested and restored from their day-to-day responsibilities.
Libra (Sept. 23–Oct. 23)
Libras are archetypal, cultured individuals who have researched, packed well and intend on calmly soaking up their well-planned vacations. The best type of vacation is a beautiful, refined environment where the people are lovely and so are the views.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22–Dec. 21)
A vacation for a Sagittarius means giving back to the community and changing the world around them. They want to preach what they learned and share their intelligence and enthusiasm for life. These vacations are as authentic as they come. The best type of vacation would be a total immersion into another culture and staying with local families.
Capricorn (Dec. 22–Jan. 19)
Capricorns are hard workers, so, when they go on vacation, it can take them a few days to relax. They are normally focused on being productive, they aren’t used to relaxing. The best type of vacation for a Capricorn is anything super active that offers an adrenaline rush, like a skiing vacation.
