The Holiday Horoscope
Need help working out where to take your next package holiday? You’ll find the answer written in the stars…
Your star sign is a tattle tale when it comes to giving away your personality traits. But did you know it can help you discover your perfect holiday destination, too?
Aries – Pacific Coast Mexico
(March 21 to April 20)
If countries counted as soul mates, Mexico’s Pacific Coast would be yours. This part of the world will curb your cravings for adventure. It’s a land of mountains, rugged 4×4 trails, and the longest zip-line circuit in Mexico. It suits your pioneering side, too, because British holidaymakers are only just cottoning on to this part of the world. Book a break with Thomson soon and you’ll be one of the first to fly direct from the UK.
Taurus – Spain
(April 21 to May 21)
As someone who doesn’t like change, you’re happy to boomerang back to the same country every year. That’s why Spain floats your boat. No matter which coast you pick, you can depend on great tapas, strong sangria, and long sunny days. You also have a taste for the finer things in life, so the hotels you pick need to be rated with a constellation’s worth of stars.
Gemini – Marrakech and Agadir
(May 22 to June 21)
Variety is the spice of your life and your holidays have to quench your thirst for new experiences. That’s why you’d take the twin-centre trip over the single-stay holiday every time. You want to taste the food and meet the people in Marrakech before heading to Agadir to do it all again.
Cancer – Sensatori Resorts
(June 22 to July 23)
In the relationship between your head and your heart, your ticker wears the trousers. You live your life listening to your feelings and senses. So it’s almost as if Sensatori Resorts were made on your mandate. This exclusive collection of hotels has been designed to stir the senses. Expect the likes of plush bedrooms with aromatherapy menus, infinity pools, swim-up bars, and luxurious spas.
Leo – Kenya
(July 24 to August 23)
As a Leo, you’re ruled by the sun, so you should send cold countries to Room 101 when you’re making your holiday decisions. But you won’t just settle for any old place in the sun. You like to get one up on your friends when you go away. Add that to the fact your star sign is symbolised by a lion and you can’t get away from a Kenyan safari as your calling.
Virgo – Greece
(August 24 to September 23)
As a Virgo, you’re never fully dressed without a list. No matter where you’re going on holiday, you’ll research the destination fully, make lists of the things you want to see while you’re there, and note down the restaurants you want to go to. You’re an eternal student who likes to learn while you’re away. That’s why you should have a soft spot for Greece. You’ll explore the monasteries of Thassos, the Street of the Knights in Rhodes, and the Palace of Knossos in Crete – physically ticking each place off your to-do list as you go.
Libra – Mykonos
(September 24 to October 23)
As a Libra, a break to Mykonos would fit you like a glove. You’ve got an internal homing beacon to all things artistic, so you’ll be in your element in the boutique hotels, where art hangs on bedroom walls and sculpture adorns the lobbies. Your outgoing side, meanwhile, will be in its element in the waterside bars of Little Venice.
Scorpio – Jerez, Spain
(October 24 to November 22)
You make independence look easy. And, after years of fine-tuning the art of autonomy, the last thing you want to do is follow the crowd. You pride yourself on taking holidays in places that aren’t too touristy – places like Jerez in Spain. You’re confident, so you’d have no problem exploring the region’s sherry bodegas and flamenco schools under your own steam.
Sagittarius – Florida
(November 23 to December 22)
A larger-than-life personality demands a larger-than-life holiday, so Sagittarians are the ideal candidates for a Florida holiday. Orlando’s 50,000 acres of theme parks should be enough to curb your appetite for adventure. The accommodation here will give you the freedom you require, too. Stay in a villa or a place that just does bed and breakfast and you can be spontaneous when it comes to mealtimes. Hit the diners on International Drive or order pizza to your room after a flat-out day in the parks.
Capricorn – Turkey
(December 23 to January 20)
You’re better at bargain-hunting than David Dickinson, so Turkey will be right up your street. You can haggle until you’re hoarse in the bazaar of Marmaris. You can even barter with the waiters in the restaurants of Bodrum and Antalya. Turkey will coax out the big thinker in you, too. Ancient Roman cities and Medieval castles will get the grey matter working.
Aquarius – Thailand
(January 21 to February 19)
You make no bones about being quirky and you need a holiday destination that can keep up with you in the individual stakes. That’s where Thailand comes in. There’s never a dull day in this helter-skelter country. Indulge your innate curiosity in the markets of Phuket and unleash your inner explorer in the temples of Bangkok.
Pisces – Maldives
(February 20 to March 20)
Of all the water signs, the ocean holds the most sway over you. That’s why you should make it your business to travel to the Maldives. In this island country you can spend your days snorkelling, scuba diving, and swimming. The Maldives is the place to do all the daydreaming you love to do, too. Let your imagination off its leash as you relax in an over-the-water villa or on a secluded sandy beach.
