The Zodiac on Holyday

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

When it comes to holidays, nothing can prevent you from doing as you like. Your impulses dictate your choices. You are rather individualistic, and you are the type of person who thinks: "Whoever loves me must follow me!" Besides, last-minute projects seem to be made for you since the idea to be taken by surprise delights you. With you, packing is very quickly done, because you know what you need.

On the other hand, you loathe being stuck or undergoing logistic constraints. "We'll see later" is what you think! You even hope that you will experience some thrilling adventure. Therefore, some sports training courses may be a good option. The most daring among you will take up trekking, which will enable you to evaluate your physical condition.

As a matter of rule, you are fond of heat and of animated places. Explore deserts, Mauritania for instance, or fire countries such as Peru or Argentina. You also like Spain and Italy as a whole, or such cities as Marseille, Napoli or Seville.

Even preparing for the trip is enjoyable, and you look forward whenever you think of the good time ahead. You carefully choose outfits which are both comfortable and attractive, so as to feel self-confident. Your practical side is not overlooked: travel schedules, but also on the spot services, one can rely on you. Indeed, you want to feel that you are in a familiar place, since your weakness is a propensity to stick to your good old habits. As a result, it is frequent to run into you each year at the same place, especially if it is bucolic or traditional.

In any case, you like green landscapes and the sea, if it is calm. If you are sensitive to heat, think of Ireland, Scotland, or Switzerland. Otherwise, Greece - particularly Crete and the Minotaur – Sicily and Capri are safe bets. Romantic cities of art such as Verona are suitable too.

Once you have arrived, you are curious to see whether your impressions will be confirmed or not, a little bit like in a study trip. Besides, your centres of interest are diverse and are related to cities as well as to areas where nature is preserved. Your scope is wide, and the most important thing is that you can move around.

Therefore, you may opt for far-off countries such as India or Brazil, two countries which correspond to your Sun sign. But some other nearer countries such as Turkey, especially Cappadocia, or Croatia, stir your interest. Paris remains an all-time traditional destination.

In the same vein, Indochina may suit your sometimes nostalgic temperament. Countries rooted in both traditions and modernity such as Japan and China may suit you.

On the other hand, your temperament prompts you to seek countries with fascinating cultures, even though there might be some danger. You are always prepared to join in extreme experiences such as penetrating some inaccessible jungle. To remain in phase with your tastes, volcanic areas are for you because they are ruled by Pluto. Climb the Etna, or go to Auvergne!

To live your secret fantasies, explore the Arab world which reminds you of The Arabian Nights, as well as spa resorts, or places which arouse your mysticism: voodoo territories, New-Orleans, or ruins of temples almost everywhere. Lastly, on a different style, don't forget "sexy" places such as Ibiza or Mykonos.

In any case, you always cope everywhere, you easily understand the most exotic customs, and you have a good command of foreign languages.

The Zodiac on Holyday for Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

However, you like to take your decisions alone or for a small group, because you are a loner who loathes crowds. Besides, meditation courses in which it is forbidden to talk are appealing. Wild areas are for you, particularly if they offer a few challenges.

Many among you love mountains, where you can experience the metaphor of your Sun sign and climb the highest peaks.

The Zodiac on Holyday for Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

Your door is wide open to whoever passes by, even though you don't spend your time cooking or organising plans. You like to exchange and to learn. Your personal needs are of little importance, more spiritual than materialistic.

If you must choose a destination, Northern countries are suitable: Scandinavia, Russia for instance. You are also a potential customer for futuristic capitals like Sao Paulo, Tokyo, or a boom town such as Shanghai, or Hong-Kong for its melting-pot. Lastly, think of places where you can work on your personal development. An ashram in India, or yoga in California.

The Zodiac on Holyday for Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

Like your friend the Cancer, you love seaside resorts above all. Long stretches of sand and the sight of the ocean truly give you the impression that you belong to the Whole. You follow the movement of waves running ashore onto the beach, or crashing against the rocks. And there you are, pondering over the meaning of life.

Islands also, all islands, may be an ideal haven: in the Mediterranean, they take you back to the time of Odysseus, whereas in the Pacific they turn you into Robinson Crusoe. You absolutely want to visit or revisit the Maldives before they disappear. And the Seychelles keep on amazing you. In a quite different style, you are not afraid of cities swarming with people like Bangkok, Manila, or Seoul.
