“Too much work, and no vacation
Deserves at least a small libation.
So hail! my friends, and raise your glasses,
Work’s the curse of the drinking classes.”
— Oscar Wilde
You’ve worked hard, and now it’s time to play. Or maybe you just want to kick back and relax a little. Take heart; it’s vacation time! Here’s how each sign may end up vacation planning, especially if you’re planning with your friends.

As the beginning sign of the Zodiac, Aries is always up for adventure. They often opt for unusual exotic trips.
Aries wants to go someplace off the beaten path and a little bit dangerous. They may even pack the car and head without a specific destination in mind.
Africa, Russia or the Orient? It doesn’t matter so much where, as long as it’s somewhere that they’ve never been before.
Oh, and when the Aries is ready to go, watch out. No delays are allowed.
They love scenic inns in the mountains just as much as luxury hotels. Just so it’s clean, comfortable and solid. Comfort is key on a Taurean outing. Breathtaking beauty runs a close second.

Taurus takes a different approach to vacationing. The want comfort more than excitement. Many of them have a favorite place that they return to year after year.
Taurus also demands good food and drink. They would enjoy a visit to some 5-star restaurants across Europe.
Gemini will want to enjoy the culture wherever they go. They are going to be drawn to museums, concerts, and exhibitions. But they may feel like ending the day with a night of partying.
They don’t want to miss anything, and they like to stay busy. A Gemini is easily bored. They love moving from place to place and learning new things. A spontaneous experience is more to their liking.
Cancer loves beach vacations. The ocean calms them. The sun and sea also recharge this water sign. That’s why they appreciate cruises.

House swapping or Airbnb are appealing to them. Cancer is happiest when they choose a destination that they can nest in. They aren’t fond of traveling. The actual plane, train or car ride is usually their least favorite part of the trip. They need to stay at one hotel the whole time, if possible.
Looking for a dramatic vacation? Go with a Leo.
Fine dining, live theater, and elegant nightlife are on their agenda. Even better if they can set a trend or spot a celebrity.
They usually prefer big cities and bright lights. New York, London, and Paris are favorite destinations. And if the Leo is a gambler (many of them are), add Las Vegas and Monte Carlo to the list.
Virgo may also use their vacation as an opportunity to learn. They would take delight in a novel-writing weekend or almost any kind of extended educational event.

Most Virgos have a specific plan for the trip. Sometimes they even go on theme trips. A London walking tour, an Italian wine-tasting or a trip to France that features the cuisine are all appealing.
Libra loves romantic getaways. They enjoy social spots as well. They love to interact with other people. They like to party, and they like to be seen. That’s why Libra will usually want a new wardrobe before they set off.
They enjoy the romance of drifting along in an Italian gondola, the elegance of India and the aesthetics of the Great Pyramids in Egypt. They are also comfortable at Disneyland, as long as they have someone to share the rides with them.
Scorpio may like the Mardi Gras in New Orleans, the mystery of Istanbul and the tranquility of the Canary Islands. They like intense experiences. Don’t be surprised if they try to fit many diverse locations into one trip.

Scorpios may need a little alone time on any trip. They may make a U-turn in Denver and end up in LA instead of New York. Expect the unexpected.
Sagittarius is the sign of the born traveler. They are free spirits who love open spaces and the sun.
Sagittarius likes to go to the places that fascinate them. They may choose anywhere from Iceland to Athens. As long as they are interested in a place, they are off and running. And don’t try to schedule them; they prefer to set their own agenda.
Most of all, they enjoy history and culture. So consider Mexico City, Pompeii and Prague, as well as Boston, Washington D.C. and Williamsburg. Capricorns are usually interested in controlled, safe and organized ventures. They don’t care for surprises.

Tours of ancient ruins, battlefields, or other historic sites will keep the Capricorn busy.
An Aquarius may take a meditation vacation to India or head out to the Redwoods to commune with nature. Perhaps they would enjoy Spain or Alaska.
They will make themselves at home anywhere they go. An Aquarius loves to meet new people and embrace the energy of a place that they have never been. Expect their vacation to be quirky and wonderful.
Pisces wants to rejuvenate the mind-body-spirit on a trip. They love spas and spiritual retreats. A trip to Santa Fe, Greece or the English countryside would be amazing. This is a sensitive spiritual sign. Pisces knows how to turn a vacation into a relaxation and rejuvenation event.

Like all water signs, they are also drawn to the oceanside. Cruises and beach resorts are favorites.
