Independent Aries are feeling more collaborative in 2021, making this a great year to organise a getaway with a small group. Aries’ ideal getaway for this year is outdoor recreation, their style is all about being active, exploratory, and filled with one-of-a-kind experiences.

Consider a multi-room holiday rental out of the main cities or book all the rooms in a boutique hotel. Most importantly, don’t skimp on the entertainment and activities – rent a car for scenic drives, scout for nearby hiking trails or how about renting a projector for ultimate movie screening.


Taurus’ travel style is all about luxury and high-end experiences with beautiful scenery surrounding them. With planets commingling in Taurus’ upscale tenth house, it’s time to get saving for future trips, as travel may require a larger budget.

They love to be outdoors, but also need their creature comforts. 2021 sees your ideal getaway in a luxe rental or hotel with huge windows and outdoor space, so you can be one with nature and sheltered in style.

Wanderlust strikes for Geminis this year, as planets ping their ninth house of travel and global adventures. Regular changes of scenery are must to bring Geminis to unexplored lands. Holidays will be all about detours, spontaneity, multi-city treks and variety.

Their intellectual curiosity is also awakened so ensure to research the history of each destination. Finding the historical landmarks, buzzing about boutiques and discovering local pastry shops will be an exhilarating scavenger hunt.

Geminis independent spirit is also aglow this year, meaning a solo getaway may also be on the cards.


Cancerians are in their water sign element this year and they’re seeking a safe container for them and their travel crew. A semi-off-the-grid destination or town off the beaten track unspoiled by tourist traps is on the agenda for this year.

Ideally Cancerians will be nestled among trees, but don’t shut in. Daily walks around town, exploring the area for secret beaches and discovering boutiques with handcrafted goodies will lift a Cancerians mood.

This intimate, introspective year has Cancerians reflecting on every aspect of life. Whether it’s a major transformation, a change in relationship status, a career pivot or even a move. The fresh scenery will give Cancerians the chance to step back and explore matters from a new perspective.

As one of the zodiac's most playful signs, Leos travel style is interactive and entertaining with a packed itinerary of must-see sites. With travel restrictions limiting options, Leos may consider visiting a national park and glamp out so they can explore the surrounding areas. As a fire sign, they’re all about building up the blazes to create a warm atmosphere.

Two is the magic number for Leos in 2021. Whether hitting the open road with a BFF or a significant other, they’ll love creating magic moments with one special soul.


With planets percolating in Virgos healthy living zone, 2021 is here to give them a galactic glow-up. A restorative getaway is optimal for Virgos this year, where they can not only de-stress from modern life, but also give their body the clean fuel it needs.

Sunny locations are great mood-boosters especially if temps are warm enough for ride bikes, exploring woodsy trails and yoga in the park.

The spirit of service is also in the air this year, so Virgos may be drawn to "voluntourism" trips where they can donate time to a good cause while being away.

Libras 2021 starmap is all about high-end experiences, their travel style is all about extravagance, entertaining and capturing all the beauty of the destination.

For Libra travellers wanting to "get away from it all”, they’d want to be pampered in style: think beautiful scenery, sports cars and sailboats, photoshoots by outdoor murals, top-shelf drinks and five-star meals.

There’s nothing wrong with being budget-conscious, but this year Libras are planning on going all out. For those coupled up, love is in the air for Libras in 2021, so grab that special someone and plan the ultimate romantic getaway.


Scorpios are flying under the radar in 2021, which is just how they prefer it. During this cozy, creative and domestic year, Scorpios are less of an adventure traveller and are more interested in finding charming destinations that can be transformed into a home away from home.

Nostalgia is also in the air, and a sentimental trip back home or to a favourite destination will warm the heart. Scorpios will be interested in connecting with their roots, which could lead to a more planned-out voyage to visit the place of their ancestors and hopefully meet a relative who's still living there.

During this family-friendly year, Scorpios are longing for opportunities to bond with their nearest and dearest. A multi-generational road trip with parents or children (or both) will bring many classic memories to last a lifetime.

A friends' getaway with a Scorpios innermost circle will also revive them. There's nothing a Scorpio loves more than unhurried bonding time with their loyal pals.

Sagittarius is in a meandering mood in 2021, which means anything too placid will turn them into a frustrated traveller. Their ideal getaway is somewhere with plenty of sunshine, with lots of spots for long walks. They don’t have a set schedule and allow room for discovery and spontaneous adventures with the locals they meet.

With the karmic lunar south node in Sagittarius’ sign all year, they may have some loose ends to tie up or the desire to connect with their ancestral heritage. This could be the year to return to home base to make amends with loved ones. Or maybe finally meet a long-lost cousin-even if communicating means by hand and a translation app!

Having a tightly packed itinerary and researching every little activity and place is a Sagittarius’ worst nightmare. However, some level of advance prep can be handy.



2020 was a year with lots of change and activity for Capricorns thanks to a convergence of Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto in their sign. Looking at the year ahead, Capricorns are ready to embrace an easier pace and take a break.

With their refined tastes, Capricorns prefer chic, curated destinations over anything cookie-cutter. Consider a destination with great museums, outdoor exhibits, and historical architecture. Capricorns also love a good scene, so an ideal location will be full of delicious restaurants and eateries.

Capricorns never go on holiday without a pre-planned list of ‘the best of’ everything.


Aquarians are the star of 2021 as bountiful Jupiter and stabilising Saturn tour the sign all year – and in February, they're accompanied by four other heavenly bodies. Aquarians are seeking holidays where they can be fired up, inspired and on a mission.

Consider a longer trip and make it work-cation to refuel that inspiration tank. Aquarians are also all about being social and physically active while on holiday, so destinations that will keep the body moving will keep all those brilliant ideas flowing.

During this self-focused year, Aquarians simply have no space to play caretaker for anyone. Solo sojourns will be the way to go. This "vision quest" will reconnect Aquarians to deeper parts of themselves, which will make them a happier on return.

2021 is a drifty, dreamy year for Pisces. Retreating into beautiful nature is always restorative for Pisceans, and with Neptune the god of the seas as their ruler, a waterfront destination is non-negotiable.

Island life is balm for the Pisces soul, and more than ever with 2021s starmap. If the destination is known for its spiritual and holistic healing resources or is considered a ‘vortex’ for its powerful energy, all the better for this intuitive sign.
