There’s nothing more exhilarating than planning a summer getaway. That is, unless you’re a nomadic Sagittarius or Sagittarius rising who literally spends their entire life looking for reasons to travel, so planning a trip is just another day in the life. Otherwise, looking for the ideal summer destination with the most Instagrammable photo opps is always a thrilling experience. But choosing where to go is the hardest part (aside from actually paying for it, of course). And with summer almost over—I’m not crying, you’re crying—it’s safe to say we all need a getaway, and quick! Here’s where you should go on summer vacation, based on your zodiac sign.
Aries: Asheville, North Carolina
I know what you’re thinking, Aries. “WTF am I going to do in North Carolina, let alone North Carolina in the summertime?” Here’s the deal, firecracker betch: With the sun traveling through your domestic fourth house of home and family during Cancer season, and your fifth house of romance during Leo season, your soul needs one thing and one thing only this summer: a cozy vibe. Asheville, with its vibrant arts scene and amazing food, is just that.
Taurus: A Caribbean Cruise
All aboard, betch. I know you only travel first class, but with the sun blazing through your mobile third house of transportation during Cancer season, and cozy fourth house of home during Leo season, I believe your ideal summer vacay consists of lavish comfort, (obvi) and more than one destination. This is precisely why I suggest a paradise adventure through the Caribbean seas as your best bet.
Gemini: The Bahamas
You’re feeing bougie this season, betch. You’re typically not very picky when you’re traveling, but seasons change, and obviously so does your mind. With the sun igniting your comfort-seeking second house of luxury during Cancer season, and your mobile third house of rulership during Leo season, you’re in need of something totally luxe, as long as there’s plenty of variety, of course. So my suggestion is, book yourself a snazzy suite at your fave Bahamian all-inclusive resort. The champagne will be chilled.
Cancer: Rome, Italy
When in Rome. This is your birthday season after all, right? Celebrating all month long is a must, especially since your birthday just so happened to coincide with this crazy eclipse season. Hang on to that excuse while you can. Plus, with the sun blazing through your indulgent second house of money towards the end of the summer, you’ll likely be in the mood to shop ’til you drop. Although, let’s be honest, when are you not? Splurging is your favorite pastime, and Italy will look so good on you.
Leo: The Grand Canyon
Happy Birthday, Leo. Where are you off to next? OK, so maybe summer did kick off on a weird note, but hey, at least you made it this far, right? So here’s my idea, Leo. Since the sun was traveling through your secretive 12th house of all things behind the scenes during Cancer season, and first house of “Look at me!” during your birthday season, I suggest the Grand Canyon. Why? Well, this is a perfect opportunity for reflecting and sight-seeing, and if you wake up in the mood to party, Las Vegas isn’t too far away.
Virgo: Rural Ireland
You’re feeling some type of way this season. Before you decide to take off with a group of friends for the summertime, make sure you keep your options open. With the sun igniting your 11th house of groups during Cancer season, and your secretive 12th house during Leo season, I suggest somewhere that’s both quaint and quiet… like the Irish countryside, for instance. Granted, this might very well cost you a pretty penny, but you know, that I know, that you know all the pictures will be worth it.
You’re on top of the world, Libra. Although, I’m not going to lie to you, the sun is totally igniting your career-driven tenth house during Cancer season, so some of you might shift all of your energy towards your career this summer, but it’s time you stop overworking yourself and take a vacation. Curacao’s sizzling Caribbean nightlife is colorful, lively, and just the right amount of distraction you need to get over your toxic ex-boyfriend. Get the f*ck out of here, Libra. Your summer bae awaits!
Admit it, betch: Amsterdam is on your bucket list, so it wouldn’t surprise me if you’ve already been there, but summer 2019 is enough reason to pay the Red Light District another visit, right Scorpio? With the sun wandering through foreign ninth house of travel during Cancer season and dominant tenth house of leadership during Leo season, you’re likely feeling large and in charge this summer. So what are you waiting for?
Sagittarius: Catalina Island
Sail away, Sagittarius. I sound like a broken record, but this eclipse season really got us, didn’t it? Anyway, with the sun shedding light on your auspicious eighth house of intimacy during Cancer season and expansive ninth house of long-distance journeys during Leo season, this summer will be nothing short of enlightening. So whether you’re in the mood to take a literal hike or go snorkeling on the beach, this quaint coastal town has your name on it.
Capricorn: Paris, France
Bon voyage! This summer will be nothing short of irresistibly steamy, so make sure to take advantage of this time and head to the most romantic city in the world. With the sun hovering over your committed seventh house of partnerships all throughout Cancer season and your sexy eighth house during Leo season, you’ll be in the mood for a romantic evening beneath the Eiffel Tower, or perhaps a night aboard Batofar. Oui, oui, betch. ‘Tis the season.
Aquarius: Miami, Florida
Your mind is at 100 mph this summer, Aquarius. Take a breather. With the sun igniting your orderly sixth house of due diligence during Cancer season and committed seventh house of partnerships during Leo season, you’ll be in the mood for the perfect getaway. Alexa, play “Miami” by Will Smith. There’s no denying this culturally rich hotspot is everything you need this season, so pack your bags. Don’t worry, betch. It’s Miami… you don’t need to pack that many clothes.
Pisces: Mykonos Island, Greece
This is how you throw a party in Mykonos, betch. No, really… wouldn’t that be the best Instagram caption ever? OK, now I sound like an obnoxious influencer. Nevertheless, with the sun beaming through your expressive fifth house of romance during Cancer season and detail-loving sixth house of order during Leo season, Greece is the perfect itinerary-friendly getaway, so get ready to party.
