Are you really, really strapped for travel ideas for 2023? Well, here we’ve got some recommendations that are entwined with your very destiny. That’s right. Direct from the cosmos: here’s where you should travel this year according to your horoscope.
A new study from OnlineCasinos.co.uk has used astrocartography (a kind of astrology that examines where in the world planets were rising or setting at the time of someone’s birth) and the help of sort-of-famous psychic and astrologer Inbaal Honigman to link each zodiac sign to a holiday destination.
According to the study, below is where each star sign should go and why, apparently.
Aries (March 21 to April 19): Alaska
‘Active and unusual Aries would be best adventuring through the idyllic landscapes of Alaska. Home to some of the world's most beautiful views and the largest national park, Aries will always have somewhere to explore here.’
Taurus (April 20 to May 20): Los Angeles
‘Great food and extensive views are a true joy to a Taurus, and it doesn't get bigger and bolder than Los Angeles; with over 30,000 restaurants and stunning wide-open beaches, Taurus will love everything about LA.’
