Your May 2024 Travel Horoscope

Welcome to your May 2024 travel horoscope. It’s time to slow down and reconnect with your body now that Taurus season has arrived.

This could be the month you embark on a foraging walk to get back in touch with nature, forgoing a fast-paced city break for an off-grid hideaway. If you’ve been wondering what travel plans are in store for you this summer, Jupiter – the planet of expansion, travel and big-picture thinking – exits Taurus and enters Gemini on 25 May until 9 June 2025, bringing a playful, social, and mentally adventurous energy to your travel plans from then onward.

Read on for your May 2024 travel horoscope. We recommend using your rising sign for a more accurate reading. All you need is your birth date, time, and location to work out your rising sign. If you don’t know your birth time, you can refer to your sun sign.
