A new decade is here and with the planet of time, Saturn, and the planet of transformation, Pluto, meeting at the top of the year in industrious Capricorn, we are bulldozing old structures that no longer support us and building something stronger.
Whether you’re traveling this year for new perspective, a break, or for work, Mercury, Venus, and Mars’s retrogrades will ask you to double check your itinerary and leave room in your schedule for slowing down.
So, where should your zodiac sign fly off to this 2020? Read your horoscope below and discover which locales are on your horizon.
You’re likely to do quite a bit of travel for work this year, Aries, but if you can squeeze time into your schedule, this is a wonderful year to visit landmarks dedicated to leaders: You’re stepping into a lot of responsibility in 2020, and you could use some inspiration. With so much happening in your career, a spa trip is certainly in order this year: You like getting dirty, so perhaps someplace you can enjoy a mud mask. Satisfy your inner need for adventure by planning a trip to the farthest place you can logistically visit. If you’re tied up at home with responsibilities, perhaps the location you choose will only be short a drive away, or maybe you will have the chance to go all the way to Tauranga, New Zealand. Set your sights far and see where you land!
This is a major year for travel for you, Taurus, and on a spiritual level, the perspective gained from going abroad and being in new places will transform you on a deep level. You’re inspired to visit places famous for education, like Oxford, England, or spirituality, like the great pyramids of Giza in Egypt. You’re craving connection with history and your spiritual center. Be smart about spending during your travels this year, Taurus, and don’t overbook on sightseeing, as you will want to take it easy and go with the flow this year. Astrologers say you’re stubborn, but you may find yourself in a much more spontaneous mood than usual. Of course, you love shopping so a trip to Los Angeles is also a fantastic idea.
2020 finds you moving through profound emotional changes, Gemini, and doing a deep release of your past. While you’re likely to visit some nostalgic locations this year, make a point to go someplace totally new, where you can reconnect with your inner voice and explore the “new you” that’s being born this decade. An exciting city like Tokyo, Japan, could be a fantastic place to rediscover yourself and release the past. You’re also reconnecting with old friends this year, so find a lovely mountain retreat where you can catch up over hot cocoa and a beautiful view. Your style is also shifting this year, so go someplace where you can get plenty of shopping done, like Dubai, United Arab Emirates.
Astrologers love to refer to you as the homebody of the zodiac, Cancer, but the truth is that you truly value your time vacationing. Travel is a spiritual endeavor for you and you love the perspective it brings. You love getting lost in a new city or spending time on the beach where you can reconnect with your zodiac sign’s element, water. Perhaps Miami should be on your list. Major shifts are taking place in your relationships this year: Traveling with partners is a famous test of compatibility. Trust that those you’re meant to continue to partner with will be up for any challenges, and be brave and say goodbye to connections you have outgrown. Your mind is busy this year, so make sure to visit places you can unwind: limit screen time and enjoy a good sunset view instead.
You love to travel, Leo, and indeed, you will be doing much of it in 2020. You’ll likely revisit many places from your past that inspired you intellectually and spiritually and visiting old friends. A lot is changing in your career this year, particularly your schedule, so planning travel may not be the easiest in 2020. However, if you set your mind to it and are able to stay flexible, you can make anything happen. As a Leo, you are passionate about art, romance, and having a good time, so perhaps make Paris, France a stop on your world tour this year.
2020 brings a total shift in your love life and in your creative endeavors, so make time to travel someplace romantic or artistically inspiring, like Ubud, Bali, or the Isle of Skye, Scotland. You may find your tastes are shifting this year, so partying in the same spots you used to may not be exciting for you anymore. Perhaps visit New Orleans or Mykonos, Greece. Shifts are also taking place in your career, and traveling for work is likely. In fact, you may visit the same location more than once for business this year, so get acquainted with local hang out spots, and become a regular. Your spiritual practice is also growing this year, and part of that journey is letting go of the past and releasing people, situations, and even items that are weighing you down: Pack only the necessities.
Much of your attention this year is on your home and family life, Libra, as you may be moving or restructuring your living situation in some way. But, that doesn’t mean you won’t enjoy any time away! You’re visiting places you fell in love with in the past, and finding yourself reconnecting with old partners. Plan a vacation someplace nostalgic for yourself this year. You’re also deepening your spiritual practice in 2020, so visiting a location that inspires your connection to your higher self is a great idea: Perhaps marvel at the northern lights! As the sign of relationships, traveling with a partner is often something you enjoy; however, don’t let them plan the whole itinerary. Boundaries are a major theme for you this year: Assert your desires, and watch your life change.
A big theme for you in 2020 is communication, and traveling brings you the perspective you need as you move through so many changes this year. As a water sign, you always do well by the ocean, so perhaps a visit to Thailand is in order. However, this year, you’re also inspired to visit large cities, like Shanghai. Your destiny awaits in a faraway place this year, so travel will be a spiritually fulfilling endeavor. You’ve been carrying emotional baggage, and you’re ready to release it and move forward. You’re reorganizing things for yourself in 2020, and smoothing over awkward situations. Do yourself a favor and keep your travel plans as simple as possible so you don’t have yet another thing to worry about.
Does any zodiac sign love to travel more than you do, Sagittarius? Unlikely! And you’re sure to do plenty of travel this year— just be smart about your budget, because big lessons on wealth, security, and abundance (and managing all of it) take place for you this year. You may find yourself going on a trip with a partner this year that you have been aching to go on for a long time. You’re a spontaneous person, Sagittarius, but this year, having solid plans will feel more grounding, so take joy in planning your itineraries. You’re likely to enjoy inspiring retreats this year, too: Take time in the mountains, and stretch your legs on a hike to clear your mind. Perhaps you should make a trip to the Catskills, where you can also quickly visit New York City for some action after unwinding.
New decade, new you! You are breaking free from old patterns this year, Capricorn, and rebuilding your life in exciting ways. But, starting fresh can be exhausting, so taking trips to places where you can recharge are key. Old cities, like Istanbul, and ancient sites are especially inspiring for you, and treating yourself to a massage is also a wonderful idea. Visiting a spa could be just what you need. Staying organized while you travel is important this year, and you may also find yourself revisiting places and people from your past. You are the sea-goat, Capricorn: Make time for both hiking and the beach. Connecting with the water element helps you connect with your heart, while connecting with the earth helps you stay grounded.
You’re doing so much inner work this year, Aquarius, and sharpening your intuitive abilities, it would be wise to visit locations that inspire your spiritual practice and help you connect with your higher self, whether that means exploring natural wonders or man-made marvels. Rest is also crucially important to you this year, so find places to stay that are especially conducive for recharging. Make time to reconnect with an old love or passion of yours by traveling with a lover, or visiting a place that inspires you creatively. You’re reflecting on communication quite a bit this year, and you may be inspired to study a new language. Practice makes perfect, so visit a location where you can converse with speakers of the language you’re learning.
Your social circle undergoes a major shift this year, Pisces, making it a sensitive time to travel with friends. Be smart about the groups you vacation with, as you may have grown out of certain friendships that no longer serve your highest good. That said, you may travel with some people and find that you bond on a whole new level. Stay honest with yourself and listen to your heart, and you’ll know what the right decisions to make are. As much socializing as you’ll be doing, you may also be inspired to visit family or a location from your early childhood this year. You’re also learning lessons this year around budgeting, so visit a location where you can dive into the natural scenery, rather than being tempted to shop. The best things in life—waterfalls! Sunsets! Perhaps it’s time to head to Costa Rica?—are free.
