Are you a curious Gemini? Or an Archer with a chronic case of wanderlust? Perhaps you’re a homey Taurian that only travels luxuriously. Whatever the case may be, our 2020 TravelScope (travel + horoscope) will give you a few ideas, perfect for this summer and where to travel based on your zodiac sign.
Below we provide the two top city picks alongside other honorable mentions for each country destination.
1. Aries (March 21 – April 20) – Russia
Wintry Russia is an ideal background for the fiery Aries spirit. As an explorer at heart, you will fit right in the taverns swapping stories with locals. You’ll enjoy the old royal tales and discover new meals, drinks, and historic locations everywhere you go. From Moscow to Saint Petersburg, Russia will not disappoint your thirst for adventure.
You will fall in love with the cosmopolitan essence of the city. And as an Aries, Moscow is the playground of your dreams. You can peruse the city in a rented car (or a bike in the warm days) and check out the Kremlin, the Red Square, and St. Basil’s Cathedral. If you love drama, you should also find time for the Bolshoi Theatre.
Can you say WWII-era memorabilia? Because Vladivostok is like a snow globe full of WWII landmarks. The city square honors the local soldiers who fought Japanese forces, and the area around Zolotoy Bridge is like a door to the past. While you’re there, immerse yourself in the culture (and history) by visiting the Vladivostok Fortress, the Russky Island, and Eagle’s Nest Hill. And, don’t forget to go on a ride in one of Vladivostock’s funiculars, which are very similar to the cable cars in San Francisco.
Other top destinations for Aries to visit in Russia:
- Saint Petersburg
- Lake Baikal
- Veliky Novgorod
2. Taurus (April 21 – May 20) – Turkey
Turkey and Taurus are a surprising but fantastic combination. Imagine how marvelous you’ll feel sipping hot black tea while looking at Bosporus. The slight breeze is caressing your skin, and the view is worth a million dollars. That picture has Taurus written all over it! Plus, Turkish cuisine is world-famous for its delicious spices and delights.
Before New York took the crown as the capital of the world, Istanbul was wearing it. And today, this beautiful, diverse, and massive city is a melting pot of civilizations, history, and culture. If you want to see where the East meets the West, Istanbul is the spot!
As a sophisticated Taurus, you’re going to love the Byzantine Hagia Sophia, the Roman-era Hippodrome, the Egyptian obelisks, and the Ottoman-era Sultan Ahmet Mosque.
Finally, you should try these tasty dishes before you head home: Kuyu kebabı, Lüfer, Mantı, Künefe, and Baklava.
Beautiful sea? Check. Classical ruins? Check. Mouthwatering food? Check.
Kuşadasi offers everything a Taurus could ask for, from luxurious restaurants to idle seaside afternoons in Turkey. And if you’re yearning for an adventure? The magical Efes is only a car ride away. While in Kuşadası, you can pop a visit to the Kaleiçi Mosque, the Dilek Peninsula National Park, and the Temple of Apollo at Didyma.

3. Gemini (May 21 – June 20) – Japan
Geminis need constant stimulation, both intellectual and emotional, and they’re full of contradictions. Hence, in our TravelScope, Japan as the ultimate combination that intertwines the modern and the old is perfect for astrological sign Gemini. Can you say yin and yang, and not think of Gemini?
For the vibrant Gemini that loves the mix of ultra-modern neon lights and quiet, traditional temples, Tokyo is a jackpot. Everything you want, you can find in Tokyo, and it’s going to be novel and exciting. You can go wild in nightclubs or visit the Imperial Palace for an educational lesson. Feed your brain with new info. Try kimonos and stroll through the 7th-century Sensō-Ji Buddhist temple.
If it’s fresh and original, you’re going to like it. Tokyo offers you edgy fashion, incredible cuisine, and history on every corner. Plus, cats!
For the Gemini soul, old-style Kyoto is far more appropriate. Everywhere you look, there is a Buddhist temple or an imperial palace. You can meditate at Shinto shrines and marvel at the old-fashioned wooden houses. Gardens and parks are the depths of Kyoto, and as a busy Gemini, you will enjoy the order in the chaos.
Don’t forget your laptop or writing pad when you visit the Temple of the Golden Pavilion. Inspiration and serendipity will be waiting for you!

4. Cancer (June 21 – July 22) – Italy
The dreamy and sweet nature of star sign Cancer needs a romantic destination. And can you think of a more suited country than Italy? The land of wine, love, and pasta. A picturesque countryside, good vintage wine, and the Mediterranean air are only some of the perks.
If you want to see the golden age of La Italia, the Renaissance, you need to visit Florence, which is the birthplace of it all. You’re going to love it here, drinking coffee and looking at the Duomo. Your longing for beauty and emotion (the Moon is strong here) will be satisfied with the Galleria dell’Accademia, the Ponte Vecchio and the Piazza del Signoria.
Pro tip: Don’t forget to snap a picture of the “Perseus with the Head of Medusa” by the Palazzo Vecchio.
Bologna is a more vibrant and youthful option for Cancers that love a good nightlife. As in any Italian city, you’ll see beautiful architecture on every corner. However, in Bologna, you can find gastronomic markets that offer artisanal meats, cheese, and pasta.

5. Leo (July 23 – August 22) – England

You’ll have abundant opportunities to fall in love with London and profess your love through pictures. The best places for the perfect Instagram shot are Big Ben, the Westminster Abbey, St. Paul’s Cathedral, the British Museum, and of course, Buckingham Palace.
Leos that are on the more sophisticated side will adore Oxford. The “City of Dreaming Spires” breaths culture, and you can lose yourself in the 38 colleges in the heart of the city. Don’t forget to visit the Bodleian Library complex and the Ashmolean Museum.

This combination might have been a bit obvious, but as a Virgo, you love order and fun in the right amount, and that’s Germany. The analytical Virgo mind will be happy with the history, and the fun-loving spirit will enjoy the nightlife. The soft Virgo soul will relax in the landscape vistas.
Dresden is evidence of the power of restoration, and as a Virgo, you’re going to appreciate it. The city is home to many art museums, classic architecture buildings, and baroque landmarks. You can enjoy midnight strolls alongside Frauenkirche, Brühl’s Terrace, and visit the Albertinum museum for a dose of culture.
Pro tip: Check out Grosser Garten, because of its zoo and botanical garden.
Can you say grandiose castles that take your breath away? If you can, Füssen will deliver! Neuschwanstein and Hohenschwangau Castles are right outside the city, and Tegelberg mountain is a luxurious ski spot.

Libra and France are another classic, foolproof combination. The flickering Paris lights, the high fashion on the streets, and the bohemian free spirt are you in a nutshell. Romance, beauty, and joy de Vivre are all Venus specialties.
What can be more romantic than Paris? A Libra in Paris. Art, fashion, culture, gastronomy, and history, to name a few incentives for you. With so many attractions in this glorious city, make sure you visit the Louvre, the Notre-Dame, and the Montmartre. Take a night cruise down River Seine for the ultimate effect.
Saint-Tropez, Cannes, and Monaco sound glamorous enough for a Libra. The whole French riviera is an epitome of luxury and beauty in every form.

The nights start with cocktails, and the days are relaxed. That’s one TravelScope combo made in heaven.

Start your vacation with a cruise down the Danube River and enjoy the glimmering lights of the riviera. As a Capricorn, you can get inspiration by visiting museums about the greats like Mozart, Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt, Beethoven, and Sigmund Freud. Buy a ticket for the Vienna State Opera and don’t forget to book a tour for Schönbrunn Palace.

Must-see attractions are the Art Market, the Palace, the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary, the Saraswati Temple and the Tegallalang Rice Terrace.
Denpasar is the busy, noisy cousin of Ubud, and it’s a modern hub where you can find a vast number of restaurants, pubs, stores, and mini temples. Once you land in Denpasar, find some time to check out the Taman Werdhi Budaya and the Denpasar Arts Center.
