Honeymoons by Sign
Where to go to celebrate your love!
If a wedding is a couple’s public statement of commitment to each other, a honeymoon is their reward for months of planning, organizing and smoothing over family feuds! For all the dreamy romance of the big day, the honeymoon is the true time for unbridled passion and relaxation.
Where you and your significant other decide to celebrate your sudden change in status depends a lot on your personality — and Sun sign! Let Astrology act as your travel advisor as you’re brainstorming where to vacation as husband and wife.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
You crave excitement and stimulation, and there’s no doubt you’ve snagged a mate who shares your appetite for adventure! Be true to your sign’s element, Fire, and concentrate on destinations that offer warm weather … and plenty of thrills. Whether you end up on an African safari or simply decide to cliff-dive in Cancun, as long as there’s an element of risk, romance will come freely to you and your spouse … especially after the sun sets!
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
Although your sign is all about creature comforts, with Venus as your ruling planet, you also feel a strong pull toward Earth’s natural beauty. You want to be surrounded in lush vegetation, and you want to travel to places where you can enjoy the natural fertility of the soil. Whet your appetite for fresh surroundings — and each other — by traveling to the greenest spot that catches your fancy: the natural rainforests of the Pacific Northwest or the tropical bounty of Costa Rica are safe bets for you. Luckily, both spots offer premium dining, your other passion!
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
As an always-on-the-go Air sign, there isn’t one specific spot on your honeymoon list — there may be dozens! Pack as much sight-seeing and destination-hopping into your honeymoon as you can, and enjoy the freedom to move as freely about the country, continent or world as your resources allow! Make sure that you and your honey aren’t too tied down by an agenda, and keep your options open for the distant future, too: you may just find the perfect place to retire on this trip!
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
Your partner might have an uphill battle to fight if they want to honeymoon in an exotic locale; you prefer staying close to home, or else choosing a homey setting, like a cabin on the lake. While some signs might buy an entire honeymoon wardrobe, you’d be equally content cycling through your favorite sweats. So make a compromise: to keep your soon-to-be-spouse happy, consider traveling somewhere with comfortable accommodations and a prominent river or ocean nearby. After all, Water is your sign’s element!
Leo (July 23 to Aug. 22)
For the chicest sign of the zodiac, a honeymoon involves jet-setting! You’ll want to fly everywhere first-class, sit in the front row at the choicest shows and concerts and reserve the poshest suites at your hotels. While the French Riviera is more your style, you could do just as well in Vegas, where world-class entertainment, primo dining and the thrilling promise of the roulette table will satisfy your craving to take your honeymoon to the hilt. On the flipside, an abundance of spas and poolside resorts can give you and your sweetie plenty of R&R before you head upstairs and unleash that fiery Leo energy in the bedroom!
Virgo (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22)
As an Earth sign that enjoys pristine surroundings and natural backdrops, a top-rated ski resort or spa in Aspen is right up your alley. You can enjoy cleanliness and an abundance of natural beauty, and see how nature and civilization can live in harmony — and because you enjoy solitude, you might even want to check out these mountain towns during the vacation “off-seasons.” Or dig a little deeper to find nature’s best-kept secrets in luxury accommodation: consider rurally comfortable ranch getaways in Wyoming, natural hot springs in Northern California or desert destinations in New Mexico so you can enjoy peace and privacy with your honey!
Libra (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22)
As the most partnership-focused sign of the zodiac, you’re pretty much up for anything your partner wants to do — backpacking, taking a cruise, driving cross-country — as long as you get plenty of quality time together! But if you’re pressured to choose, consider a luxurious resort that offers private patio jacuzzis and which is especially geared toward couples. At the same time, renting an upscale hotel room in your own city or hometown will offer you the luxury and isolation you want from your first vacation as husband and wife! Just make sure you close the laptop, unplug the TV and turn off all mobile devices so that nothing distracts you from each other.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21)
You are attracted to mystery and the unknown, so taking your bride or groom to natural wonders (like Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico) or up to see the Northern Lights is sure to turn your love lamp on! At the same time, you are fascinated by places with rich, enigmatic cultural history, so the bayous of New Orleans would appeal to your spiritual intuition. A trip to Latin America — especially if it’s during Day of the Dead celebrations — would be sure to satisfy your fascination with death and (it being your honeymoon) the sexy, sensual side of things!

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21)
Your sign is the globetrotter of the zodiac, and it adores open spaces and the freedom to move, move, move! If you can, plan your honeymoon overseas, in a land where neither you nor your spouse speak the language. Your appetite for adventure will be piqued, and this will strengthen the already tight bond you feel with your lifetime lover. Once you’ve spent a day navigating cobblestone alleyways, local bazaars, smoky cafes — and decoding new cultural etiquette — you’ll bring your renewed sense of wonder back to the hotel, where you and your sweetheart can celebrate the even bigger journey you’ve just embarked on!
Capricorn (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19)
As an Earth sign with a strong craving for comfort and life’s pleasures, you’ll want to avoid an overly active honeymoon and simply focus on sensory pleasures: superior restaurants, excellent shopping and gorgeous sites. You’d probably be content to book a few nights at a bed and breakfast in a seaside resort town, but if you feel like branching out, aim for a city with rich cultural history (and plenty of antique markets!) like Boston, London or Paris. If you do travel to a big city, make sure it’s one that also offers impressive modern architecture that you and your spouse can marvel at!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18)
Forget Paris or the Bahamas — you’ll want an offbeat setting for your first trip with your spouse. Consider a cruise to Alaska at a time of year when there’s sunlight for all but a couple hours of the day, or go for a midnight gator-hunting cruise in Florida’s Everglades. On the flipside, your passion for technological innovation could push you East, so if you’ve got the resources (and your partner is game) consider a whirlwind trip to Tokyo, to see the newest trends in fashion and technology — in action!
Pisces (Feb. 19 to March 20)
Wherever you go, Water — your sign’s element — should be a focal point. Whether that means taking a cruise on the high seas, getting an oceanfront room in a quaint coastal inn or simply camping on the beach, you’ll be able to direct your dreamy passion at your new spouse, ensuring the ideal honeymoon! As one of the most romantic signs of the zodiac, you’ll already be in the right state of mind to focus completely on your partner. The glorious reflection of sunrise and sunset on the water will simply seal the deal and bring both of you that much closer to euphoria!
