The Escapades of the 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

The escapades of the Zodiac for Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

It is often breathless from having sprinted that you reach the departure day. But it does not matter! An Aries is always ready and never exhausted, according to the Scouts' motto. You only need to put on your jeans, grab a small suitcase containing just the essentials and hop, off you go. Since you undergo constraints in your daily life, in order to be enjoyable, a short stay must let you free to improvise. Do your best to avoid traffic jams, for they always make you see red. Then, you lose all sense of humanism: you consider that people are bleating sheep moving with difficulty in flocks. Therefore, a good advice, find a trick in order to leave before the crowd. This prospect will even help you wake up at dawn. Once you arrive at your destination, the change of scene or of rhythm is enough for you to rejuvenate: your legendary energy gets recharged straight away.

Opt for a sunny and wild region, such as the Luberon, Corsica, or even a trip in the Moroccan desert, to traipse around the stones in the heat!

The escapades of the Zodiac for Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

The best plan for a short stay would be to find a small guesthouse off the beaten path. And conviviality would be the watchword. For example, you love to create a link with your hosts and test their "home" recipes. A table in the garden, under a blossoming cherry tree, is all it takes to make you feel ecstatic. Otherwise, since sunny days are synonymous with outdoor performing arts, think of concerts, theatre plays, or folk shows to entertain you. It is also the feria season, which is deeply permeated with your Taurus values.

Thus, Nîmes, or Southern France in general, and of course Madrid or Sevilla are perfect choices. If you do not like bullfightings, at least you will appreciate the ambiance and the fact that you are able to savour your first drinks in a cool shade. Then, you will enjoy scouring the local markets which are replete with treasures. A wicker basket under your arm, unless it is the daily newspaper, and you are absolutely delighted!

The escapades of the Zodiac for Gemini, Gemini rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 3rd House

Opportunity makes the thief! It is with your fanciful soul and your overflowing creativity that you imagine a getaway for you, your family, and your numerous friends. Do not hesitate to take the seat of the organiser to concoct a surprise programme. Because you have a real knack for enthusiasming people. A few days earlier, you accept to drop some key information: whether a passport is or not necessary, what type of clothes should be selected, and the departure time. The day before, you sent an SMS to everybody, with a rebus. Those who find its meaning will have an idea of what is ahead... Next, things will go according to your whims: whatever the location is, it will probably be devoted to fun or to cultural discoveries. Even if the initiative of the choice were left to you, once on the spot, you know how to be flexible, adaptable, and even charming.

Consider Ibiza or Barcelona if you are in a festive mood for the opening of clubs. But if you are more interested in culture, choose the euphoric gaiety of Rome or Florence in spring.

The escapades of the Zodiac for Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

Well, if you are asked what you prefer for a 3 or 4-day vacation programme, the odds are that you reply: “thalasso!” After having been through winter harshness, and spring whimsical weather, you are dying to pamper yourself. Water being your element, think of going to the seaside, or if possible to the banks of a lake. There you are, in a white bathrobe, meandering quietly in the garden alleys. Because the little flowers which grow, and the sunbeams which warm you up also have the power to appease you. Your days of vacation must be completely idle, and you watch from afar people hustling and bustling, while you tranquilly recover your energy with a good book and nice massages.

Opt for a calm and serene location such as the island of Djerba or Brittany. You may also feel like taking a jaunt to a city by the water: Venice or Amsterdam is an excellent choice.

The escapades of the Zodiac for Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

The king's choice: this is how you see the organisation of a short trip. Between inopportune circulation and packed trains on the eve of public holidays, your heart does not hesitate. Definitely, it will be the plane, a business class flight if possible, or why not, a jet or a helicopter? You will be delighted to land in Monaco, perhaps on the Formula 1 Grand Prix day. And may be, to be invited in the royal box... Otherwise, two steps away, the Côte d'Azur, its yachts and its sparkles will enable you to enjoy the summer ambiance before the crowds of vacationers arrive.

You will prepare your first suntan at the terrace of Sénéquier, in Saint-Tropez, while checking who is the most glamorous one among the guests. This will give you the envy to crown this jaunt with a shopping tour in the most exclusive boutiques. In any case, no souvenirs found at open-air markets, no, but really! However, if you are less bling-bling and more classic, the Loire castles will remind you of the power of the kings of France.

With the prospect of long week-ends and other spring holidays, you may want to set aside your acute sense of professionalism. Come on, forget your files, and use your unfailing organisation skills to find the best leisure plans. For a short stay, your interest is to choose a capital city or a cultural city to suit your intellectual nature. On the spot, you will not mind a modest hotel, provided that its location is central, and that cultural events, museums, and shops are nearby. Equipped with a map, and very good references, and detailed guides, you will stride along the streets, prompted by your curiosity and your renown caution.

Paris remains a beautiful classic destination, especially in spring. But you will also enjoy another intellectual or business cities such as Antwerp, or why not Riga, in Latvia, the European capital of culture in 2014. Or Mons in Belgium, which will be that of 2015! You will then impress your close friends with your erudition!

Escapades on a long week-end have everything to seduce you, for they enable to combine leisure and refinement. Even for a short duration, your suitcase will be filled up. How could it be possible to enjoy oneself with unkempt or inappropriate clothes? For you always pay attention to everyone's opinion, even that of people you do not know.

Deeply civilised, your complexion may be a bit pale in this season: therefore, you need a temperate place like Bruges with its canals, Holland in general, with its tulips and its mills, or Antwerp, to buy a gorgeous diamond. Just a few suggestions to make you dream. A romantic to your fingertips, you believe an escapade is for two, of course. Spring is a marvellous season to bill and coo on a terrace in the moonlight. Thus, there is no need to be away for a long time to build unforgettable memories.

The escapades of the Zodiac for Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

You, who like to get to the bottom of things, you will have to ponder so as to find a satisfying destination for a short period! But you are fussy about neither schedules nor equipment, because you prefer the intensity of the moment.

So, in order to be original and to take a few risks, try Cairo, for the mysteries of the pharaohs and of death are intriguing. Or take a plane and land in Heraklion, in Crete. Nearby, there is the palace of Knossos and its labyrinth: you will follow the footsteps of the Minotaur, like Theseus and beautiful Ariadne. You will also be touched as you visit the site of Pompeii, still impregnated with the volcanic soil which resembles you. Or, since you are also a water sign, you can opt for a harbour city, provided it is special and not only picturesque. For instance, Marseille and its excitement, its mixed population, and its scoundrel reputation, or Corsica, quite for the same reasons!

Quiet, please! This is a spring escapade, just for a few days, and not a faraway exploration. Therefore, no need to take the whole state-of-the-art equipment, to rush for vaccinations, and to get a big suitcase. But it does not matter! Even though you must control your enthusiasm a little bit, the prospect of travelling makes you champ at the bit with pleasure. Quick, you must reach the final destination, regardless of the means used, in order to make the most of it, because you are a pleasure-seeker!

Like the other fire signs, you need the sun in spring, thus Turkey and the liveliness of Istanbul, which promises a dive in the Orient, is perfect for you. You will also appreciate Grenada, Tangier, or Marrakech, regions which symbolically suit your sign. The Hispano-Moresque world offers perspectives which have their roots in the Thousand and One Nights. Do not hesitate to extend your stay with such books, over there, and back home.

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

The escapades of the Zodiac for Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

You will certainly not look at the weather forecast with anguish on the eve of the departure. Whereas other people confess that the success of a short stay depends on those external factors, you do not let them destabilise you, come on! Actually, you tend to go to the mountain, slightly prolonging the winter, for it is the right time to venture on a glacier. You may also choose a northern town which offers the advantage of being less crowded than the more southern ones.

You will enjoy Copenhagen, with the statue of the courageous little mermaid with whom you have many affinities, since she was able to suffer so much in silence. You will also appreciate the Danes' lifestyle, simple and ecologic. Another attractive possibility, Edinburgh, for its historical prestige. There, you will travel back to the 7th century, admiring its foundations, and you will meditate in front of the 16th century formidable fortresses. In brief, even during a short time, it is out of the question to waste yours, because it is your most precious possession, just like Saturn, the ruler of your sign.

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

The escapades of the Zodiac for Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

Starting from the concept of an escapade, your first reflex is to find, at any rate, an unusual idea. For instance, European cities not too much visited, such as Cracow, Ljubljana, or Bratislava may quench your genuine thirst for culture.

Definitely more interested in urban curiosities than in lazing about under the sun, Berlin, though very sought after, remains a safe bet. Shrewd and resourceful, in any case, you will set your personal and original programme, as you please. Moreover, the Potsdamer Platz, the Damm are futuristic enough to suit you. You will be delighted by all sorts of creative designs, or even by shows, museums, or amazing events. Finally, and above all, it is difficult to imagine you strolling alone: you ought to leave with a cheerful group of friends, just to have fun, before anything else.

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

The escapades of the Zodiac for Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

It is obvious that the sea is irresistibly attractive! Since you are sensitive to the cold, you should head towards the South or a temperate region. You want to be assured that you can lounge on a terrace in a nice little harbour, and leave to other people the task to brave the sea spray. Ideally, you are advised to let them organise this escapade at your place. You are not too comfortable with practical issues, which are crucial if you are to enjoy a short stay.

To pull at your heartstrings, hopefully, someone will suggest the Gulf of Sorrento, near Napoli: the Mediterranean is sweet over there, and you will be moved by the romantic view of Capri, you who melt down at proofs of love and film remembrances... You will also appreciate picturesque rides along winding roads, if possible in a convertible. But above all, you want to be left alone on your deck chair, with no one brandishing any hectic programme... Another possible choice, Lisbon, of course a very busy place, yet a real recollection of the past of the great navigators who left to explore far-off seas.
