The destination you should visit based on your zodiac sign
Astrology focuses on how the placement of the planets at your time and place of birth influences your personality and ability to thrive. Meanwhile, astrocartography “projects your birth information onto a global map of the Earth to reveal where on the planet those individual influences are likely to manifest most strongly.” Whether you’re an astrology enthusiast, a casual horoscope reader, or simply looking for vacation ideas, finding your next travel destination based on your zodiac sign is a fun way to determine where to take your next voyage.
Aries – Australia
Aries is intense and energetic with a love for competition and warm weather (as AstrologyZone.com shares, “as a fire sign, [Aries] prefer warm, dry heat to cold locales”). They will do well to plan their trip around a major sporting event in a hot location, like the Australian Open in Melbourne, Australia. Those born between March 21 to about April 19 also tend to have an optimistic attitude that will mesh well with the laid-back culture Down Under.
