Aries: Arkaba, Australia
Born: March 21-April 19
Price: $712 per person, per night
Passion and determination define the Aries, so your dream vacation should have more than a little adventure. As a fire sign, you won’t want for a more apropos landscape for that adventure than Australia’s Flinders Ranges, the rocky, warm-hued ancient seabed that houses Arkaba.
Here, the challenge-loving star sign can partake in seven hours of daily activities, from air safaris to fossil hunting, before retiring to a chic 1850s cottage homestead.
Taurus: Koyao Island Resort, Thailand
Born: April 20-May 20
Price: About $330 to $430 per person per night
The strong and protective bull is widely known as a fighter, but that doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy a luxurious vacation in Thailand at the Koyao Island Resort.
Alongside experiences catered to tough Tauruses, such as rock climbing and mountain biking, Koyao offers a Muay Thai boxing training program with a champion fighter on-site. After you run 8K with your trainer, relax in an open-air private villa right on the beach.
Gemini: Brown + Hudson’s Journey With No Destination
Born: May 21-June 20
Price: $1,500 for planning, $30,000-per-person trip minimum
This dream travel package fits the characteristically unpredictable Gemini like a glove. The uber-luxurious agency’s Journey With No Destination package first creates a detailed psychological profile of the traveler — including wants, needs and travel goals — before sending them off into an opulent journey into the unknown.
The bespoke luxpedition might take you to a seaside villa for a private serenade from a platinum-selling musician, or it might take you to a naked dance party at the North Pole. Either way, Brown + Hudson handles every single aspect of the trip, from research to security.
Cancer: Ayurveda Living Village, India
Born: June 21-July 22
Price: About $1,570 for a two-week retreat for two
The crab is a steadfast but sensitive zodiac sign, and one that’s always seeking answers. And the crab is also a crab, so it naturally enjoys the beach. What better way to open up your shell and ponder life’s faraway problems than chilling on a sandy beach in Azhikode for a full-on Ayurveda and yoga retreat?
Let a relaxation-packed daily regimen of cleansing, vegetarian meals, massages and herbal treatments appeal to your meditative side.
Leo: Four Seasons Hotel George V, France
Born: July 23-Aug. 22
Price: From $1,400 to over $7,000 per person, per night
The lion is the king of the jungle, and the self-confident, larger-than-life Leo likes to live like a king in a man’s world. There’s no better place to do that than the Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris.
Located centrally in the Golden Triangle, this art deco masterpiece bursts with kingly features such as densely textured marble and ostentatious floral arrangements. Walk to everything Paris has to offer, or stay in and eat a feast fit for a king at any of three Michelin-starred on-site restaurants.
Virgo: Rolling Meadows Retreat, Maine
Born: Aug. 23-Sept. 22
Price: From $650 to $1,250 per person for a four-to-seven-day retreat
Sitting meditation, yoga, self-inquiry and vegetarian meals among the quiet, towering trees of Brooks, Maine — that’s what the intimate setting of Rolling Meadows Retreat offers.

For the earthy Virgo, the main attractions are the many opportunities for self-improvement and the near-constant connection to nature.

Libra: Nekupe Resort, Nicaragua
Born: Sept. 23-Oct. 22
Price: From $750 per night
Libras are people persons with a knack for creativity, so a creative concept resort that brings people together in the best possible way just feels right. That’s what you’ll find at Nekupe, a 1,300-acre nature reserve in Nicaragua’s Pacific countryside.
The resort at Nekupe features a spa, pool, tennis and four complimentary restaurants all wrapped up in feng shui-inspired architecture. Of course, the best part of Nekupe for Libras is that it elevates humanity; at this nonprofit, what you pay for your stay goes directly toward strengthening the local community and its surrounding natural world.
Scorpio: Castello di Casole — A Timbers Resort, Italy
Born: Oct. 23-Nov. 21
Price: About $655 to $1,650 per couple, per night
When you think “Scorpio,” two things should come to mind: feistiness and love. Those stingers conceal a deep need to give and receive the “L” word, and you just can’t beat Italy for that.
In idyllic Siena, acres of operating vineyards and groves surround the authentic 1800s architecture of the Castello di Casole manor, where guests can partake in authentic Italian dining, wine sampling, exercise or a dip in the infinity pool. It’s time to put away the stinger, and let the heart run free.
Sagittarius: Ace Hotel, Los Angeles
Born: Nov. 22-Dec. 21
Price: From $329 to $1,299 per person, per night
Positive, powerful and totally independent, solo travel is the way to go for Sagittarius. The Ace Hotel in downtown Los Angeles boasts easy access to attractions such as the Walt Disney Concert Hall and The Broad art museum. It’s also one of the must-see sights for celebrity spotting.
However, the hotel’s cutting edge interior design, open-seat dining, coffee counter and rooftop pool make it ideal for the independence-oriented archer. Some rooms even come stocked with a Martin acoustic guitar.
Capricorn: Zen Resort Bali, Indonesia
Born: Dec. 22-Jan. 19
Price: $150 to $260 per person, per night
You might not think of Bali when you think of this winter sign. But Capricorns revel in a sense of order and peace, which is just what the doctor ordered at Zen Resort.
A collection of 26 villas overlooking the Sea of Bali, Zen Resort offers packages dedicated to attaining inner peace, including sunrise meditation, forest walks and Zen-themed ocean diving. The goat is a notoriously frugal sign, too, so the relatively low price (thanks to a favorable exchange rate) is definitely a factor.
Aquarius: The First Hotel Roma, Italy
Born: Jan. 20-Feb. 18
Price: About $460 to $1,095 per person, per night
Always forging their own paths, those of an Aquarian inclination are exploding with creativity. Crank out those quirky ideas by bringing the art museum directly to your luxury quarters.
At The First Hotel in Rome, more than 100 pieces from an ever-changing collection of contemporary artwork decorate each room, making your suite into a wholly unique private gallery. For this air sign, The First Hotel’s exclusive rooftop bar doesn’t hurt either.
Pisces: Poseidon Mystery Island, Fiji
Born: Feb. 19-March 20
Price: $15,000 per person, per week
The upcoming Poseidon Mystery Island is your typical five-star resort, except that guests can choose to spend most of their time on land or underwater. If that’s not a fit for this highly imaginative water sign, what is?
Quiet and loving Pisces will enjoy a romantic escape at this 225-acre resort, which will arrive fully equipped with personal submersibles for exploring. Though Poseidon has been mum on an opening date, eager Pisces travelers can visit PoseidonResorts.com/#connect to register their email address and get notified as soon as reservations open. Because when boredom strikes 90 feet below the ocean’s surface, a boutique, library, nine-hole golf course and two restaurants are the answer.
