It’s never too early to start planning your next road trip. With so many options, though, how can you decide? Perhaps you should look to the stars. People consult their horoscopes when making all kinds of choices, so why not travel?
Different sun signs have different wants and needs when it comes to traveling. Check your horoscope for 2024 road trip recommendations, and the best car rentals to get you there.
Aries: March 21–April 20
Your destination: Let’s start our travel horoscope with the sign that considers themselves first in the bunch. This fire sign is courageous, energetic and somewhat impulsive at times. Aries will need an adventure to feel like they’re really having a good vacation. An environment like a national park will fulfill their adventurous spirit. For hikes with stunning views and camping out under the stars, consider Acadia National Park in Maine.
Your vehicle: A spirited sign like Aries needs a vehicle that makes driving fun, so a Jeep Wrangler or Ford Bronco are just the ticket.
Taurus: April 21 –May 20
Your destination: Taurus, the bull, is patient, warm-hearted and stubborn. This earth sign is grounded, but they also feel the need to relax every now and then. Try venturing up towards the mountains to a secluded spa destination, where a Taurus can let down their stubborn guard and take a soothing mud bath. Glamping in the Catskills, anyone?
Your vehicle: Tauruses are type A planners, which means they know just what to bring on a trip and don’t need lots of room for the unnecessary. That’s why a compact electric vehicle like the Hyundai Ioniq is ideal for them.
Gemini: May 21 – June 20
Your destination: Gemini is adaptable, lively and extremely versatile. There are two sides to every Gemini: social and intellectual. Geminis will be happiest in a bustling city where they can take part in night life – but also enjoy the local culture. They want to try new cuisines at restaurants, go to the theater and experience all that the local museums have to offer. Try a city like New York or Chicago.
Your vehicle: Geminis are known for their twin personalities, so why not drive a car that has the same vibe? A hybrid vehicle like a Toyota Prius has the best of both worlds, just like a Gemini.
Cancer: June 21 – July 22
Your destination: Cancer, the crab, is emotional, intuitive, protective and has a vast imagination. Cancer is called to the sea – time for a beach vacation! This imaginative, yet cautious water sign would love a small New England town with a beautiful shoreline (and lots of crabs).
Your vehicle: The environment is important to Cancers, so something fuel-efficient like a Ford Focus would be a great fit.
Leo: July 23 – Aug. 22
Your destination: Leo is generous, enthusiastic and creative. This lion sign wants to be pampered, to feel like a king for a little while. Their enthusiastic and open-minded energy will thrive in a fun-loving city like Las Vegas where they can take a load off on the flight there, but rent a car and explore on their own once in the city.
Your vehicle: An electric vehicle may seem like an unexpected choice for a Leo, but with their low emissions and cutting edge technology, it’s a car Leos will surprise themselves by actually enjoying. Go ahead, go for the Tesla.
Virgo: Aug. 23 – Sept. 22
Your destination: Virgo is meticulous, reliable, diligent and practical, making their travel horoscope a bit of a puzzle. Virgo is a hard worker, so how can they take a vacation? When traveling, Virgo still wants to be busy. Go to a bustling city with a lot of sights to see, like Seattle or Los Angeles. A Virgo will make it their job to soak up as many experiences as possible.
Your vehicle: In order to make sure they see everything the destination has to offer, a reliable sedan like a Honda Civic or Toyota Corolla will make sure they don’t miss a thing.
Libra: Sept. 23 – Oct. 22
Your destination: Libra is a diplomat and a peacekeeper. They like cities where people are easygoing, and the everyday hustle and bustle is running smoothly. They are also ruled by Venus, making them hopeless romantics. Try a city known for its romantic beauty, like Quebec.
Your vehicle: A little sporty and a little showy, a Libra will want an electric SUV, like the BMW iX, for their road trip.
Scorpio: Oct. 23 – Nov. 22
Your destination: Scorpio is determined, passionate, emotional, excitable, magnetic and intuitive. Scorpio’s passionate nature is perfect for a trip to a beach paradise like Naples, Fla. In the daytime, this sign can pursue adventurous, exciting activities like diving, waterskiing and parasailing. At night, their magnetic personality will be the life of the party.
Your vehicle: A luxury sedan like Mercedes or BMW is a dream for the bold and confident Scorpio.
Sagittarius: Nov. 23 – Dec. 21
Your destination: Sagittarius, the archer, wants to launch themselves into new experiences. Our travel horoscope realizes that this sign needs nonstop adventure to quench their restless nature. A road trip to the Great Smoky Mountains or Orcas Island, Washington, can satisfy their love of freedom and their pursuit of the unknown.
Your vehicle: Such an adventurer will need a vehicle like the Toyota 4Runner that can handle varied terrain and is plenty spacious.
Capricorn: Dec. 22 – Jan. 19
Your destination: Capricorn is good-humored, disciplined, ambitious and careful. The Capricorn, represented by a mythological sea goat, usually has pretty strong knees – perfect for climbing and hiking. A long hiking journey in New Hampshire’s White Mountain National Forest will satisfy this disciplined, ambitious and patient sign.
Your vehicle: Capricorns are plenty stylish, too. They’d do well to travel in a high-end vehicle like Mercedes or Volvo.
Aquarius: Jan. 20 – Feb. 19
Your destination: Aquarius is friendly, loyal and independent. Aquarians are the most humanitarian signs, and they will enjoy following in the footsteps of the progressive thinkers that came before them. Try the Civil Rights Trail to explore the past, present and future of social justice.
Your vehicle: A hybrid will suit the social and environmentally-conscious Aquarius as they travel to and from their destination.
Pisces: Feb. 20 – March 20
Your destination: Pisces is imaginative, escapist, compassionate and intuitive. A place like Watch Hill, Rhode Island, can fulfill this water sign’s desires, while one of these artsy destinations will fuel their creative side.
Your vehicle: Artists at heart, Pisces will want a car that gets them from A to B but still has some flair. Picture something like a Mazda Miata or Audi sedan.
