If you’re wondering where to go next, look no further than your astrological birth chart. Astrology is the study of the movements and positions of celestial bodies and how they affect human affairs and the natural world. Astrology has become increasingly popular, which experts believe is due to its allure in times of uncertainty and when wanting to better understand oneself. If you don’t already know, finding your star sign is easy! Simply identify your birthdate below to find your corresponding sun sign and discover the best places to travel locally in 2022.
Aries (March 21st - April 19th)
As an Aries and a fire sign, you have an electric personality. You’re easily bored and therefore crave a variety of things to do. We recommend travelling to Watamu where you’ll find plenty of water sports, marine life, historical sites, and nature trails to explore.
Taurus (April 20th - May 20th)
The Taurus symbol is a bull and it can be hard to convince anyone with this star sign placement to break routine or be ‘inconvenienced’. Taurus individuals enjoy creature comforts. Therefore, consider travelling somewhere closer to home like Naivasha. Get a cozy cottage or AirBnB and enjoy the fresh open air and serene lake in style.
Gemini (May 21st - June 21st)
Geminis are big thinkers and talkers, you’ll often find a Gemini striking up conversations with new people, curious to learn about the world around them. As a Gemini, consider a culturally-rich travel destination where you can meet and talk to new people like Mombasa or Lamu.
Cancer (June 22nd - July 22nd)
Cancers are creatures of habit, they tend to find one place they like a lot and visit it often. In 2022 it’s time to discover something new and equally comfortable. Try a fully-staffed home at a well-known beach like Diani where the chef cooks delicious Swahili dishes and you can relax all day at the beach and in your private home.
Leo (July 23rd - August 22nd)
Leos know exactly what they want and what they like, they are often passionate and luxurious in nature. We’re not going to tell you what to do we think you’d enjoy a solo trip! Treat yourself to a luxurious trip to the Mara where your stay is all-inclusive and you can sip bubbly while overlooking the wilderness from a hot air balloon.
Virgo (August 23rd - September 22nd)
Virgos are meticulous planners, you probably already have your travel itinerary lined up for the next quarter. You’re detail-oriented and like things neat and clean. Every friend group needs a Virgo so why not invite a few people on your trip and make it a group activity? There are some really nice homes in Nanyuki that are great for groups!
Libra (September 23rd - October 23rd)
Libra is an air star sign ruled by Venus (the planet associated with harmony, beauty, and love). You’re drawn to all things beauty and art and want a balanced holiday of relaxing and adventure. Go on a romantic escape with a partner or surropund yourself in homes with beautiful architecture and artwork.
Scorpio (October 24th - November 21st)
It’s been a tough couple of years for us all but Scorpios are probably particularly in need of a renewal. As a Scorpio you’re very self-reliant and in control in your day-to-day life. You’re probably craving something a little more remote and off the beaten path; head into nature or a quiet beach to escape the crowds and reconnect with yourself.
Sagittarius (November 22nd - December 21st)
Out of any star sign, Sagitarrians are known for their love of travel. As a Sagittarius you’re probably down for anything, a new adventure. This may be the year to finally climb Mt. Kenya (if you haven’t already). If you have, do it again! Or, enjoy the hiking trails, camp at Lake Ellis, plenty of options.
Capricorn (December 22nd - January 19th)
Capricorns are hardworking and take their holiday time seriously. As a Capricorn you’re a taskmaster, wanting to be in charge of your destiny. Why not enjoy a self-catered home away from home that’s less than a two hour drive from Nairobi? It takes just the right amount of planning so you’re in control but not too much that you can’t relax and enjoy yourself.
Aquarius (January 20th - February 18th)
A fiercely independent star sign, being an Aquarius means you often like to do things your way, enjoy going with the flow, and can often be found questioning the world around you. Encourage your inquisitive ways and go to Ol Pejeta where you can learn about their conservation efforts and see two of the world’s last remaining northern white rhinos!
Pisces (February 19th - March 20th)
Pisces is the 12th star sign of the zodiac, you encompass a little of all the zodiacs. As a water sign you’re often drawn to holidays by the water and happy to go with the flow. You deeply care about the earth and your role in it. Take a trip to Malindi where you can be by the water (ocean or pool) and visit the Malindi Marine National Park or take a day trip to Watamu to see the turtle conservation efforts.
