The Travelling Zodiac

Disclaimer: with astrology, it is possible to decipher our behaviour or to get a glimpse of the future. This is a theory which cannot be systematically tested. On the other hand, one may wish to follow an easier path, which puts into practice the principles listed in astrology textbooks. In a way, this is precisely the type of practical exercises that we suggest in this Lifestyle column.

We recommend that you follow our advice with both a light and observing mind. Beyond entertainment, the aim is to understand how each of us behaves in various fields; thus, we can better define and fathom, by deduction, how we have developed our natal predispositions. In addition, why wouldn't we be able to guess the talent(s) which we could harness in the future, according to our astrological profile.

The following information is given for signs in their purest form. Depending on the case, it is advisable that you check your planetary dominant or the sign of your Ascendant, the position, quality and aspects of the significators of the area involved, and if applicable, the position of the planets associated with it. For instance, for family affairs, examine the 4th House and its ruler, as well the Moon; for romance, examine the 5th House and its ruler, as well as Venus, etc.

The large number of books we have read, and more particularly, the experience we have drawn from the study of thousands of charts, urge us to be cautious. However, we thought that it may be interesting to provide a few concrete indications, which will turn out to be accurate, quite often.

Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

trip for Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

A real scout through and through, you only need to jump into your running shoes and to grasp your toothbrush to be ready to leave. Indeed, you like travels! But you need action, otherwise you become mad. You can hardly bear endless lines at the tollbooth or airports security checks. An individualist, you prefer, whenever possible, having your own personal transport; if you can drive a racing car and step on the gas, it is even better. Since you are bold, you have no problem thinking that you have to manage by yourself, whether at the end of the world or near your home, provided you are lost in the wilderness with rudimentary equipment. Urges to be careful are not deterrent. Actually, you always do as you please.

You will find on Astrotheme thousands of natal charts of celebrities who have the Sun in Aries, Aries rising, or Mars dominant. The former are sorted in popularity order, whereas the latter are sorted according to the strongest dominant. Since each planet also rules a House – sometimes two houses – you may want to also look at charts having a strong 1st House.

Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

trip for Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

Trips promise to be pleasant when they involve immersion in nature. To begin with, you are not rushing, and you are placid. You let people bustle about and, with a little smile, you watch the consequences of hysterical people at the train station. What you enjoy is to take your time for the preparation of your entire trip, especially for your luggage. It is out of the question to leave empty-handed, because you would feel deprived. If you have to take a day off for that, too bad. As an Earth sign, you are fond of traditions: covering long distances by train suits you marvellously, you who like to be "on tracks". You can request that a nice meal be served on board, ideally like in the Orient-Express, your must. You are affective, and you prefer to travel with your sweetheart, with a friend, or even with your pet. Although planes are sometimes scaring, you may be convinced to fly, if this makes the trip more comfortable.

Gemini, Gemini rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 3rd House

trip for Gemini, Gemini rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 3rd House

What is the worst-case scenario for you? Probably to find yourself in a "silence" compartment, with neither mobile phone nor newspapers. Indeed, to travel means above all to meet people. As soon as you have stepped a toe out of your house, your attention is drawn to life scenes, and no anecdote escapes you. Gladly willing to oblige, you can help people find their way around, for with your practical and quick mind, you always manage to get valuable pieces of information. You are an expert in good ideas and crafty tactics. Regarding transport, you are flexible, provided you reach your destination rapidly. You enjoy having many various experiences, jumping from one public transport to the other with the easiness of an old hand. You are an excellent driver, or a pilot, since you are comfortable with the Air element. You appreciate being in a commercial flight, in the hands of the crew. Your neighbours will remember your confidences and your jokes for a long time. On the spot, you do not need much: a few mini gadgets, and you feel fine!

Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

trip for Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

Cancer, a homebody? Well, not always. Admittedly, your attachment to your house is not to be proven any more. However, ruled by the Moon, you love to wander. Once you are rid of trivial details – getting organised, being practical – you are a nice traveller. Do not forget that Antoine de Saint-Exupéry had the same Sun sign as you. He was sensitive and did great stories full of humanity, in very distant countries. Of course, as suggested by your element, you appreciate to be close to the sea: cruises have everything to suit you, because even though the boat is fully packed, you do not mind the crowd. You need a slower rhythm which lets you get used to your new destination. Nothing is worse than being catapulted in an unknown spot for a whirlwind trip. You secretly enjoy turning your vacation place into a home. Your comfort is important, of course, but you are also fond of your little habits.

Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

trip for Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

It is easy to spot your luggage on an airport carousel. It is out of the question to cram your things into an ugly tiny bag. No! Either you opt for a whole range of suitcases from a prestigious brand, or you seek high technology items with hard shells which are both very strong and light. It is useless to precise that you seldom improvise. Female or male, you take along a change of clothes, carefully selected to impress, and a Hollywood vanity case. For the plane – business class, naturally – you have prepared long ago an It Bag or a state-of-the-art smartphone, to be carelessly put by your side. You need attendants to ensure that the trip becomes a pleasurable experience. You are the type of passengers who love to be pampered and complimented. Then you can revel in on board delights, with your digital tablet or a luxury magazine. You appreciate it when the only thing you have to do is spread your hand to get a glass of Champagne, and when a limousine is waiting for you. In a word, not too hippie.

Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

trip for Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

You are mobile, and you are fond of travels, as long as you have planned them and organised all their details. Even the shortest trip is unlikely to catch you off guard. You know all the required means of transportation, and you pick the most practical one in all objectivity. You are aware of timetables, of connections and of possible hitches, as well as of the weather forecast. Very important for the luggage and the stopovers. Your suitcase is so perfect that it could be photographed so that it may prompt people to follow your method. You are a list specialist: that of mountain resorts, that of beaches, that of countryside. Your medication kit always includes essential items. Since you are pragmatic and fearless, you do not carry your entire medicine cabinet. Your vaccinations are up to date. You will never be blamed for a lack of hygiene! Here again, you aim at perfection.

Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

trip for Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

As far as trips are concerned, you need to share. Therefore, it is most unlikely to find you alone in a harbour, gone off in search of adventure, and sleeping on a backpack. To begin with, you ensure that the travelling conditions are good. You expect to have company and a minimum of comfort. In a train, a boat, or a plane, you start a conversation with the other passengers. In airports, you easily get lost in luxury boutiques or in duty-free shops, and you observe with keen interest how people are dressed or how they behave. In a little corner of you head, you always think that great love stories can start on the road. You are moved by lovers walking hand in hand, and you secretly dream of an encounter sublimated by the journey, being at the end of the world with the only person you care for. It is certain that you will be dressed up to the nines, having taken the precaution to put in your suitcase your favourite make-up or your best razor.

Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

trip for Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

If it were possible to borrow a witch broom or a flying carpet to take you where you wish, then you would be ready. Indeed, you do not like the beaten path, and some degree of mystery or of magic has always fascinated you. Likewise, you enjoy the idea of travelling to secret destinations, sometimes dangerous ones, or in any case, full of strange forces. Volcanoes, uncharted lands, and dark forests are meant for you ; they set your imagination ablaze. You could venture into the jungle on a dugout canoe, or fly over Africa in a hot-air balloon. Or you may be tempted by a Journey to the centre of the earth, as described by Jules Verne. As for luggage, here again, you are atypical. Focused only on your obsessions, you disregard basic necessities. You prefer so much more a nice book instead of "just in case" clothes . Once on the spot, you are willing to taste everything, including monkey brains!

Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

trip for Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

Travels as a way of life, here is your mantra. And if possible, faraway. Attracted by exoticism, you gladly jump in a plane so as to swallow thousands of kilometres more quickly. You are mainly looking for adventure and disorientation. On the road, by Jack Kerouac, was written for people like you, thirsting for encounters as well as new horizons. When you are on the go, you need to see and to fell the motion. Nothing is worse than being stuck on rails, with no possibility to change, or than being packed at the back of a car near a tiny window. Once on the spot, you know instinctively how to behave, and you learn pretty fast the weirdest customs. Besides, you are avid for information, but you prefer to listen to your feeling instead of paying attention to details. Since you are fond of wild escapades, you may be tempted by a horse or a motorcycle as a means of transport.

Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

trip for Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

Trips must definitely be planned. To begin with, you carefully avoid rush days of massive departures, because you loathe crowds. Bison futé is your friend! Moreover, anything looking like a group tour will make you run away. You prefer a thousand times to follow a country road, even if it takes twice as much time. This gives you the opportunity to stop for a simple picnic and to watch overloaded highways in the distance. Since you are thrifty, you do not see the reason why you should accept peak season rates, if you can avoid them. Regarding means of transport, you feel particularly comfortable on solid ground: in a personal car, as good as your strong constitution, you will be the master on board. However, what you appreciate above all is when the purpose of the trip is to walk. Three weeks wandering in the pebbles of the hinterland of a wild region, or in the sand dunes of a desert, seem a very inspiring project. And since you are Spartan...

Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

trip for Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

You may be among the people who booked a one-way ticket to Mars... or instead, you have gathered information in order to make a suborbital journey. You impatiently wait for the feedback about this, because you have invested many hopes in Richard Branson's shuttle, a project which is unfortunately falling behind. One has understood that, pending the possibility to experiment teleportation, you remain willing to choose the most modern means or destinations. Futuristic airports fascinate you. To you, it is just natural to find yourself in a train operated without a driver. To tell the truth, you have less trust in old-style travels, because you are so used to include technology in everything that you feel a little bit lost without this help. Apart from that, you are a pleasant traveller who does not need much, and who eats whatever is available locally.

Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

trip for Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

A long-haul sailor, or the mermaid of the cruise, boats remain your favourite means of transport. Whether a sailboat or a ship, you enjoy their pleasures on all the seas of the world. Distant Pacific, fortifying Atlantic, sweet Indian Ocean, the Water element captivates you, because each day is different. Besides, you feel that you get back to a more suitable rhythm, calmer and more in sync with every component of the universe. Owing to your penchant for mysticism, travels may have spiritual dimensions. In a different manner, you may also appreciate planes, preferably long-haul aircrafts, in which you lose the sense of time as you cross time zones. Since you are quite absent-minded, you almost always forget something, and at your arrival, you rummage around in your suitcase vainly. However, pay attention to timetables or to possible strikes, since you tend to have your head in the clouds. Wait until you are faraway before disconnecting.
