Get Away for the Weekend -- Zodiac-style!
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Speed, excitement and adventure are your ticket to a good time, Aries. A motorcycle trip to the Grand Canyon or some other outdoor destination will offer you the challenge and sense of freedom you thrive on. Though you'd enjoy traveling alone, a calm, cool-headed companion could actually help you avoid encounters that might trigger your infamous temper that could keep you from having the fun you deserve.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
A leisurely drive through a farm country with plenty of stops for comfort food is the ideal scenario for your weekend trip, Taurus. Though generally it's hard to get you to leave your familiar routines, a getaway that satisfies your desire for sensual pleasures can get you moving. But you should probably be in charge of the driving, since you like to move at your own pace and want to be able to stop to eat whenever the urge strikes.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Gemini needs a getaway that's packed with things to do, people to see and places to go. "The more the merrier" is your motto, and you'll likely acquire a few fellow travelers along the way. But be careful about picking up hitchhikers, because your natural curiosity could make you bite off more than you can chew. Just don't forget to pack your mobile device -- as the most social and tech-loving signs, you'll want to keep your Facebook friends up to date with your adventure.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Whether you're going on a posh tour of gourmet restaurants or bringing your kids to visit grandma, your weekend trip is sure to involve family and food one way or another. Your nostalgic soul will probably enjoy traveling in a vintage car and stopping at antique stores and famous historical sites along the way. And since being away from the comfort of your own bed may be a bit challenging for you, try to bring a familiar pillow or blanket that will make you feel more at home.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Limelight-loving Leo, your idea of a weekend getaway probably involves a bright red convertible, fancy hotels and plenty of opportunities for fun along the way. You don't just want to have an ordinary vacation -- you want to feel pampered and taken care of every step of your journey! As the sign ruled by the Sun, you'll probably most enjoy a trip to some warm and luxurious location. Mixing it up with the average Joes at the RV parks is just not going to cut it for you.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Virgos love nothing more than to spend time enjoying nature, so a camping or hiking getaway is ideal for you. But just because you're going to be spending time out in the wilderness doesn't mean you have to be disorganized. You'll plan months ahead of time, figuring out your route and what you need to pack.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
As a lover of romance, beauty and pleasure, you'll enjoy a getaway for two that involves, art, music and plenty of time to relax and de-stress. A trip to a spa or a romantic beach getaway with your partner would make you happy, especially if it includes delicious desserts and beautiful sunsets. Since you can sometimes have a hard time making up your mind, once you make your plans, try to stick with them, otherwise you could end up going nowhere.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Your private and intense nature may lead you to get away on your own, Scorpio. You'd probably enjoy a tour of famous crime sites, cemeteries or haunted houses in a city rich with history. Since you like to travel incognito, you may choose a vehicle with tinted windows or even travel under a different name or style of clothing for a real thrill.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You Archers thrive on diverse cultures and languages, but trekking to a far-off locale may be too much for one short weekend. Locally, why not check out a river rafting, hiking or mountain climbing adventure? A pickup truck or other four-wheel-drive vehicle will get you where you want to go with a minimum of fuss. Just try not to overdo it and end up with an injury that could end your fun early.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You'll likely get the most enjoyment out of your weekend getaway if it's centered around work or a business project. This way you can write it off as a tax expense, which will bring great satisfaction to your practical nature! However, it might do you good to do at least one thing on your trip that is just for fun and involves other people, particularly your family. This will help you to relax and get more in touch with yourself.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Like everything you do, your perfect quick getaway will be quirky and outside the box. You probably won't plan it too far ahead of time, preferring instead to be spontaneous and free. This will probably be a group affair, involving many friends and acquaintances, so you might need two cars or even a "hippy bus." You'll enjoy touring wacky spots like UFO museums, communes or alternative living centers. Of course, remember that not everyone lives the way you do, so be respectful of the local cultures you visit.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
Pisces, as a spiritual Water sign, you'll likely enjoy a tour of sacred sites or a trip that involves a river, ocean or lake. You may even want to journey to a retreat spot where you can spend time meditating or praying and clearing your mind. Wherever you go, you'll likely attract some interesting wildlife, since you have a gift with animals and other forms of life. Though you know that life is about the journey and not the destination, it still might be helpful to have a GPS so that your intuitive approach to directions doesn't have you ending up spending most of your time lost.
