Though astrology goes far beyond the twelve individual star signs, your sun sign is a rough framework for understanding certain personality traits.
For example, Taurus is both hedonistic and stubborn which means people under this sign need to be put in charge of the travel logistics, but having a taste for the finer things in life means that they will 100% find somewhere sleek. Where a Capricorn seeks ultra-luxe, a Scorpio seeks functionality—and a Virgo aims for a bit of both.
Having an awareness of your birth chart can contextualise these characteristics with some more clarity, and certain attributes can sometimes lean more toward your moon or ascendant (rising). Whether you identify more with your sun, rising or moon sign is a whole other conversation. For now, we’ve selected the destinations and hotels to bookmark for later based on your star sign.
December 22nd – January 20th
