Annabel Gat is Broadly‘s Astrologer. Here, she details your travel horoscope for 2019.
2019 begins at a full-speed pace—and there’s plenty of exciting travel in store for all of us as Jupiter, the planet of luck and growth, moves through adventurous fire sign Sagittarius, a sign famous for their well-worn passports, friends in every city, and eagerness to explore. Aside from travel, another big theme in 2019 is fantasy. No matter your sign, escaping the ordinary and exploring places that inspire your imagination is a must—whether it’s a bioluminescent beach or the great heights of Machu Picchu, otherworldly locations call to us. What will this year have in store for you?
This is such an exciting year of travel for you, Aries. New experiences are on the way thanks to lucky planet Jupiter in fire sign Sagittarius, inspiring you to go on exotic adventures! Excursions that bring about a new perspective of the world are great choices for you in 2019—like taking in the awe-inspiring views of the U.S. National Parks, or exploring the world below sea level. You’re ready to take some risks this year—you’ve always been an adventurous person, but the last few years have found you holding back. Not 2019! Going on a romantic trip? Connecting on an intellectual level is important this year, so head to some place that’s home to your favorite museums. Remember to expect the unexpected—your adventurous mood can take you anywhere this year, so no matter where you’re traveling, one of your must-haves is a change of clothing—whether it’s a comfortable outfit to lounge in after you’ve worked up a sweat hiking, or something fancy to wear to the opera, you will want an array of options in your luggage.
2019 brings big changes for you, Taurus—and you don’t take change so easily. So, hit the spa or visit locations where you can truly unwind. Making time to sit with your emotions as the things around you transform is important—and it’s even better if you can do it with cucumbers over your eyes. Intense emotions are in the air, and as you settle into all of the changes taking place, you will be glad to leave your old life behind. One way to say goodbye to the old you is while strolling through a garden. Being in nature and around flowers, like at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, is fantastic for any Taurus’s spirit. Earth signs like yourself love to be surrounded by beauty and wilderness. 2019 is also major for your intimate relationships, so a trip to some place unabashedly romantic is a good idea—try a secluded location along the water, like Santorini or the Maldives.
This is such an exciting year to travel, Gemini, especially with your partners, in both business and love. This is thanks to the planet of luck and abundance, Jupiter, in fiery Sagittarius—which happens to be your opposite sign! This also means that balance will be a key word for you this year: take as many fun and active trips as you do relaxing ones. For a romantic trip, head to a big city neither of you have ever been to before—you and your partners are in the mood to see new places and enjoy the quick pace and culture of busy cities, like Shanghai or New York City. Another great idea is to plan lots of weekend getaways to swim, ski, or stay active, but again, balance—carve out a few days to unplug from work emails and social media while doing a whole lot of nothing on the beach.
You are so busy in 2019, Cancer, but that’s not going to stop you from taking a vacation! Indeed, plenty of travel for work is likely to take place this year, and any accessories that can help you stay organized as you do so are good to have on hand. Carve out time to rest, and hit the beach. Simply being by the water is good for every water sign’s spirit! Focusing on wellness is also a goal of yours this year, Cancer, so spend time at a spa in the Swiss Alps or a yoga retreat in Goa, India. In your love life, making time in your busy schedule for plenty of little trips out of town will help you to unplug from your otherwise hectic life. Your to-do list is long in 2019—so make sure to include time for yourself and your loved ones on it, too.
You love to travel, Leo, and 2019 has plenty of fun adventures in store for you. If it has been a while since you’ve been immersed in Las Vegas’s lights, grab a group of your friends for a wild weekend trip. Plenty of reasons to celebrate will come this year, and you are totally in the mood to party! Romance is also big in 2019, and a trip to some place where you can both be active and genuinely enjoy each other’s company is a great idea—hike Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania or enjoy your other favorite physical activity, shopping, in either Madrid or Istanbul. Your creative spark is also burning bright this year, so you can always head to the Louvre when you’re in need of a boost in inspiration, or simply remember to pack your water colors as you head to a scenic beach.
Home is where the heart is for you in 2019, Virgo, but you will still need to decorate your space with objects from your exciting travels! You have always fantasized about living on a bus, or even a houseboat—why not test the waters by staying in one in the canals of Amsterdam? You are in a nostalgic mood this year, so swing by some beaches or cities you would frequent when you were younger—or that you had always wanted to travel to, but never could. Your definition of home is growing in 2019—and with that, your knowledge and connection to the world is expanding, too. Planning on going on a romantic trip? Visit some place with amazing food—enjoy an endless amount of delicious meals and some decadent desserts with your sweetheart in Rome.
You’re so busy this year, Libra! 2019 is all about communication, but that doesn’t mean you don’t deserve time away from the ever-growing amount of emails in your inbox. Make sure to carve out time for some solid relaxation on the beach—perhaps in Bermuda or Bali, away from the constant flashing of notifications on your phone. That said, a trip where you can meet and mingle with lots of interesting people is a great idea, too, so hit up some big cities with plenty of nightlife. You’re a Libra, which means relaxing on the beach is wonderful, but making new friends and having a blast with them is way better. If you’re going on a romantic journey, something within driving distance and ideally in nature is great—if you’re not one to camp, I’m sure a spa surrounded by exquisite wilderness would suffice for you.
You are not one to be flashy, Scorpio; however, this year you are craving opulence—swing by Versaille, Topkapi Palace, or the Forbidden City to get your fill! Treasure hunting also sounds like fun: Perhaps give the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Murfreesboro, Arkansas a visit! Of course, the abundance of nature also inspires you—spending time amidst the sequoias is an equally great way to enjoy your time away from home this year. If you are having a romantic vacation, doing something unexpected—like discovering the magic of the Galapagos Islands or the Chapada Diamantina highlands— is a wonderful way to work the adventurous vibe in 2019. Plenty of romance and fantasy is in the air, too, this year—perhaps this is an excellent opportunity for you to escape your everyday worries at Carnival in Brazil.
You are one of the most adventurous signs in the zodiac, Sagittarius, and with your ruling planet, Jupiter, in your sign in 2019, you are sure to take some amazing trips this year! Jupiter is the planet of growth and abundance, and is thought of as a very lucky planet. Celebrate your good luck by visiting some of the world’s luckiest places, like Blarney Castle or the Trevi Fountain. Is there some place you have been dreaming of going, but it seems too far or inconvenient? With Jupiter in Sagittarius in 2019, this is your year to make it happen. If you’re planning a romantic getaway, cruise along the picturesque Dalmatian Coast in a private yacht—Jupiter has long been associated with ships, and while airplanes will certainly get you to your destination quicker, it’s the journey that counts, right?
You are eager to go on adventures this year— even spiritual ones! You are known for being business-minded and serious, and while a yoga retreat may sound like something that’s not “productive” enough for a busy, business-minded Capricorn, the truth is that taking care of your body and spirit is just as important a responsibility as being at your desk. Unplug! Recharge—just do it without any electricity. Commit to taking a few days away from social media this year while you travel. The further off the grid you can go, the better! When was the last time you saw the night sky and the stars in their full glory? Make sure you get to do that in 2019—Big Bend National Park in Texas is known for its breathtaking night sky view. A silent retreat this year would do you good, but that’s not all 2019 has in store for you… romance is here, too! Go hiking together and visit a historic site along your route.
You cool Aquarians have friends in every city, so no matter where you travel, you have a place to stay and people to see. This year—go somewhere else! Head to a place you’ve never been before—you’ll be making plenty of new connections this way. You love to socialize, so going somewhere with exciting nightlife like Melbourne, Australia, or Phuket, Thailand, is a great idea, especially this year with lucky planet Jupiter in gregarious Sagittarius. A group trip with your best friends is a must! You’re thinking a lot about the future this year, and in your travels, visiting locations that are home to innovative technologies would be quite exciting—think Seoul, South Korea or San Francisco, California. Going on a romantic trip? The Cascades D’Ouzoud waterfall in Morocco is calling both your names.
Do you typically travel for business or pleasure? 2019 will find you doing plenty of both, Pisces! Your career is big on your mind this year. As you reflect on your success, visiting the financial capitals of the world, like Chicago or Tokyo, will bring plenty of inspiration for your future goals your way. Another great idea this year is to take trips to cities with plenty of nightlife, like London or Rio de Janeiro. You’re a dreamer, Pisces, and you can get lost in your own imagination—head somewhere this year that will inspire you creatively, perhaps the Bahamas. Pisces people are usually fantastic photographers, so grab your camera and shoot some stunning landscapes. Gorgeous sunsets are just what you need to make this busy year the best it can be.
