When you’re a Pisces, you love to get lost. Travelling Pisces style means going with the flow, allowing yourself to absorb and mingle with whatever happens to be going around. Though Pisces has an almost manic need to plan, once the idea is planted and the intention is there, Pisces is happy to get carried by the wind. Travel à la Pisces is a fluid thing. Water views, while preferred, are an optional extra.
On the one hand, Pisces often has a mystical bent. They love out of the way places, mysteries and the possibilities of ‘The Otherworld’. Which, of course, suggests that there is something very kosher about a Piscean trip to Cornwall. Replete with dells, wizards and crashing surf, this is the perfect part of England for Pisces to get comfortably numb. Anywhere in the West Country equally suits. The legend of Avalon hangs mistily in the air. A Pisces is to Glastonbury town what a fish is to a chip. On a similar vein, Pisces can do the Scottish West Coast and Gaelic standing stones equally well. If it’s wet, weird and slightly confusing then it has a Pisces kind of travel diversion written all over it.
Another Pisces quality is the willingness to mingle and relate. They also have a love of anything musical and intoxicating that is interesting to behold. If there’s a jingle and some drinking involved, Pisces won’t be too far away. Many Pisces excel at understanding human foibles, having so many of their own. Pisces love a yarn, and can spend many a contented evening trilling folk songs in the comfort of some out of the way Scottish bar. In an instant, they can totally absorb the tribulations endured by Robert the Bruce, and weep sweetly at the thought of a tragic ending to a love affair. They know a bonnie lass when one comes calling, and can pipe Danny Boy from glen to glen and down the mountain side. They are also quite partial to a tipple and will happily partake of a wee dram or three if that is what it takes to keep the conviviality alive.
Of course, not all Pisceans are drunkards and drones. There is also the Pisces type who is frightfully artistic. In this sense, Pisceans thrive on transcendental artforms. Opera, music and ballet come close to Pisces heaven, as do difficult foreign film festivals and obscure photographic exhibitions. A Pisces in London must do The Tate, The Barbicon and White Cube. They must also swan around Covent Garden for the Royal Opera and Ballet. Pisces have a penchant for all things abstract and other-dimensional so will feel quite at home decoding the semantic circumambulations on show for the Turner Prize.
Traveling Pisces style can be a kooky affair. All chaos and emotion, they simultaneously need some kind of structure and a plan. Pisces are always friends with the unexpected and make ideal voyagers in the esoteric and out-of-this-world.
The world is your oyster when born an Aquarian - in a very literal way. The global village gets more and more compact as technology rockets things along. Yours is the sign most likely to join the zeitgeist. You’ve been doing global community and random acts of communication way before the Net even began. Travelling Aquarian style means meeting new companions, forging new allegiances, and then being free to get up once more and go. You are the quintessential world citizen, and the pearl in the collective crown.
This theme of networking, connecting and group activities goes right to the Aquarian core. Aquarians get a better sense of who they are by relating to the group of which they are a part. Happy to get on tour bus, Aquarians see collective adventures as necessary for the soul. Aquarians may not be the first to get all nostalgic while researching the family tree, but they may spend time touring the English countryside to learn more about the gene pool (or potential-set) from which they have sprouted from. There can also be something scientific about the Aquarian approach to life. So a trip to the British Museum or a fact finding mission to the plinths of Stonehenge is a very Aquarian thing to do. In fact, Aquarius can find much to keep them occupied on the spooky Salisbury plain. Here they can decode chalk markings, walk through ancient burial cairns and discuss the latest theories on crop circles with enthusiasts - as well as wackos - from all over the world.
Aquarians have a reputation for eccentricity. They will do things differently, and if needs be, alone. Yet in this current global melting pot, even when Aquarians are living up to their reputation for the unusual, kooky and bizarre, they have a way of finding other trailblazers and lone-wolfs with whom to collaborate and have fun. Aquarius can do free yoga in Covent Garden, dinosaur hunting in Dorset and catch a game of rugby in Wales with whoever happens to be near. Mobile technology and lightning-fast networking skills mean that Aquarians keep their finger on the pulse. Aquarius will know which London eatery is in line for a Michelin star, what Jamie Oliver’s doing next and the right amount of BPM needed to keep the city’s hottest club happening. In fact, you can bet Aquarius already has the night free, friends lined up and a VIP pass at the door.
Aquarians tend to love anything new and unconventional. They also love a debate. Britain is jam-packed full of disgruntled radicals with an axe or two to grind. Any pub in any town should yield a stimulating exchange of words. They thrive upon the air of political radicalism that bristles in the air. Whether it’s protesting animal rights outside Tesco’s or attempting an open air synthesis between Loyalist and Catholic points of view- Aquarius is there in the thick of it. Travelling Aquarian style means bonding with new, sometimes radical and collectively oriented things.
For some reason, Capricorns seem to like slopes… Whether it’s ski week in St Moritz, or hiking to the top of Ben Nevis, there’s something in that ditty “Climb Every Mountain” that brings joy to the Capricorn heart. To travel a la Goat style means achieving something out-of-the-ordinary, whether it’s a touch-down in the Swiss Alps or a tour of the Lake Country without hardly spending a thing.
For this very reason, an outdoor adventure is very much a Capricorn thing. Where better to reflect upon their own capacity to overcome obstacles than from a high mountain peak? Hiking, climbing and rambling are all Capricorn things. Ever considered roaming the English moors? A Capricorn would. Wondered what it would be like traipse through Ireland on foot from North to South? Capricorn has. Cycle to Liverpool via Cambridge and back? Capricorn should. They like the idea of a journey that you have to earn along the way. More sedate Capricorns will make do with long walks, winding country lanes and pilgrimages to places like Stonehenge. They love anything with a touch of the ancient, and that is also difficult to achieve.
Yet Capricorn is also an earthy sign, and these folks enjoy the things of the flesh. Yet they conceal their intention for debauchery beneath an austere outer mask. To the unsuspecting, Capricorn may appear somewhat cautious, reserved or circumspect. Yet once the tour bus is parked and they are safe behind closed hotel doors, the party beast and hedonist wakes and rears its head. No one does can-can like Capricorn can. This sign knows how to get into their own groove, even if no one else is dancing along. They love pleasure, sensuality and a downright good time. Karaoke in Earl’s Court? Kit off in Edinburgh? No-one said they were tacky, but Capricorns are not likely to blush…..
One thing that must be said of Capricorn is their tendency to hate waste. This can extend to the coins in their pocket, as Capricorns will save on the smallest things. Why pay 50p for a bus trip when you can walk the whole way instead? A taxi down the High St instead of waiting for the train? Forget it… Not when your Capricorn can get from A-B in a more economical and time-honoured means. Travelling Capricorn style might mean scrimping and saving a little while you are on the way. A budget trip leaving from Luton? They prefer to fly that way. However, the reward for all that economy is likely to be worth it in the end. You can rely on Capricorn to be the one in the group who can produce the cash that final party weekend.
Travelling Capricorn style means appreciating how far you have come. This sign has a huge respect for the past, for tradition and for the sacrifices necessary to make sure that something is done. They love pleasure, parties and saving pence, but never forget where they are from.
In a Sagittarian utopia, the world would have endless horizons and be populated with fascinating peoples of outstanding accomplishment and imaginative flair. Sadly, while sitting at Heathrow may not match, it does afford the opportunity to dream. Sagittarians are the voyagers of The Zodiac, seeking to expand and broaden horizons beyond what they have known before. Locating oneself at the hub of international transport, and then choosing a destination based on a moment’s whim is the closest to this reality you can be.
Another favoured Sagittarian past-time is the pursuit of gambling and/or sport. Sagittarians love to be where trophies and money are seen to change hands. Tracking down a Grand Slam tournament? Sagittarian delight. Putting down a quid or two whilst watching the Grand National? Of course. Sagittarians love days where excitement, and that certain whiff of competition, hang in the air. Whether shouting down the umpire after an especially close call at Wimbledon, or whooping about the pence they’ve scooped from one of those silly fruit machines, Sagittarians love it when the thrill of victory and risk combine. This sign is known for its luck, so when travelling Sagittarian style, expect fortune to smile.
As an incredibly cultured and slightly religious bunch, Sagittarians also thrive upon the exotic and the unknown. Divine inspiration can rain down on them like a summer storm. First in line to receive a blessing, Sagittarians will make a bee-line if the Dalai Lama is in town. Known for their tolerance to new ideas and tendency to maintain an open mind, no one is more likely to meet a Druid whilst in Salisbury. This is the sign most likely to discover their own bona-fide spiritual guide. Whether it’s a leprechaun or a swaddle-clothed swami, Saggi’s have a knack for finding the craziest guru, the most sacred temple or out-of-the way holy spot when traipsing round the world.
This penchant for all things cultural extends to knowledge as well. They like to have the final word on every place they have been. No one has a knack for turning up an interesting cultural artifact quite like a Sagittarian can. Equally at home on the cricket pitch or at an archeological dig, Sagittarians tend to thrive on the undiscovered and the unknown. They love being in the know. They can test the limits of local punters by betting on just about anything, or stun the professor of Egyptology with their intimate knowledge of the last Pharaohs’ favourite meal. This sign has a need to know, and an insatiable cultural curiosity. They want to expand their range and repertoire by becoming a momentary expert on every place they have been. When travelling Sagittarian style, it’s all about absorbing experience. They seem to have a way of absorbing local colour, sometimes without the need to so much as step outside the tour bus.
