LOOKING for travel inspiration? It’s all in the stars.
Airbnb has teamed up with Twitter-favorite The Astro Poets to match you with a destination and Airbnb stay – poetically inspiring your wanderlust and guiding you to the right place (literally and metaphorically) before 2019 ends.
Aries: Brooklyn, NY
When you walk in, there will be endless green. And in your dreams, you will see the green bathe a wash of emerald over every sad encounter. Simplicity has a way of making your nerves let go. You wouldn’t have thought to do it, but that is why it was made for you all the more.
Aries love the glitz and pace of The City and find it a natural home for all of their ambitions (romantic and otherwise). But after they are done with their adventures, the thing they most need is a place to be a Queen.
What better setting than this room in Brooklyn, with its overflowing green plants (and likewise good oxygen) and bright sunny views of the hustle and bustle of NYC’s ultracool borough.
They will enjoy falling asleep in the bath of violet light of the nightlight and when they wake up, they will delight in the toothpaste selection (ordered in rainbow colors, of course) and spending a good hour in the early morning texting in the chair-hammock by the bed.
Most of all, they will relish in the green plants throughout the apartment, refueled and recharged each day for more of what they came to NYC to do – move quickly!
Taurus: Paris, France
You’re always in a golden hour, traveling through the childhood of your mind. There will be wind and there will be alcoves. There will be drinks and many people. You will surprise yourself again.
There’s no other city that will fit the grandeur of a Taurus like Paris. It’s classic, romantic, and full of history. It also allows a Taurus to do their favorite thing which is indulge – whether that’s in food, wine, or truly the best art in the world, right there, in one city.
This intricate apartment has a glorious view of Montmarte and Sacré-Cœur, and is full of light. Natural light is something that’s very important to a Taurus. Perhaps because they can get so comfortable staying indoors, they like to have as much of the outside world there with them as possible.
They also love plays, opera, and anything theatrical. Not to mention that they’re one of the best-dressed signs, and will go to great lengths to look impeccable even if they’re just grabbing a cup of coffee. This makes them the ideal candidate for Paris, or perhaps Paris is lucky to have them.
Gemini: Bergen, Norway
You’ve dreamt always of this wide expanse of sky. Seeing clouds upon clouds light the seascape. Did you leave and come here for some reason? Or were you always here, waiting to feel something, something both true and permanent.
Geminis have so much going on in their heads – so any sense of quiet solitude is welcome. From the moment they get there, they will just feel the peace emanating from this space in Bergen, Norway, with its clean, cool white interiors and elevated bedroom tucked away in the hollows of the building’s roof.
They will love bathing for hours in the solid white tub, thinking and thinking important thoughts to dissolve into the clear air. Most of all, they will enjoy how close the apartment is to everything happening and then how easily they can leave the clamor to be alone.
The overarching mountain will mean so many things to them, especially as it juts into the glorious, endless sky, and its enormous presence will complete the happiness they feel each night as they drift off to sleep.
Cancer: Luján de Cuyo, Argentina
If the sky is there then so are you. If the trees surround you, you surround them too. Air, air, air – and birds. Suddenly. Then all at once.
Cancers absolutely love small towns. They love to get lost and fully immersed in them, as they do with people.
Luján de Cuyo is in western Argentina, near the Andes Mountains, and let’s just say there is a lot of Malbec there (which Cancers also love). This particular space is so gorgeous, with tons of open space, and what feels like endless windows, that Cancers will want to throw a dinner party and invite all of their friends (and exes), and of course, they’ll be the ones cooking.
Cancers are incredibly nurturing. If they could, they’d keep you as close to them as possible. Don’t be surprised if you wake up one morning and have a one-way ticket to Argentina waiting for you in your inbox. They’re generous like that.
Leo: Milan, Italy
Was it the violet that loved you? Or did you need it all these years, endlessly waiting for the right tone? You told a joke, or four, and no one laughed. It’s not the day that gets you—it’s the promise of the night.
Whatever is the most glamorous will attract the most Leo energy, and this place is no exception. Leos will adore the deep history of Milan and its vivacious nightlife and will relish in entertaining new friends in this charming room nearby the Brera district.
They will likely bring a friend from home to sleep in the extra loft bedroom, to talk endlessly into the night, lounging on the sofa while sipping a gorgeous bottle of wine (or three). The predominance of purple, particularly painted in the major archways will make them feel right at home and so regal, and rightfully so.
In the morning, they will enjoy slowly sipping espresso in the garden, planning hopeful adventures in the city center, ready to show the entire country of Italy just exactly what it has been missing.
Virgo: Scotland, UK
Away from the Earth and the sea and the rain. Away from the impossible hour when you begin to wonder—yes, it was probably you who meant to paint everything in light. Yes, it was you. You probably did.
Virgos truly run the world. They take care of everything and everyone and often forget about themselves. So, of course, they have a fantasy of leaving it all behind and being in a perfect, secluded space (at least for a few days).
This airship in Scotland couldn’t be farther from anything or more meant for Virgos. It is immaculate inside. Its sharp lines give it such order and it is incredibly compact.
Virgos absolutely value presentation. They can’t relax until everything looks like the set of a movie. And it more or less feels like you are in one, in this airship. It has breathtaking highland views too.
Libra: Harbor Island, Bahamas
What is it about the lips that enamor you so ferociously. Could it be the presence of speech and the cascade of words speech promises? Pink is so immense, but does it call for you? Oh, of course, it does, it drapes your heart away, and you will find it there in the folds of the everlasting pearl pink waters.
Libras have a lot going on usually, and right now is no exception. So, it will delight them endlessly to go to the Coral House and relax the stress away in this tiny mansion. Its pink façade and shell pink accents will make them somehow feel at home, with their soft and gentle pink kisses everywhere.
There will be many places to read a good book for hours (like one of the many clean bedrooms or the open garden), something all Libras love to do, to rest the stream of words in their brain on someone else’s already constructed sentences and phrases.
The Coral House will provide them respite, proximity to restaurants and the pink beaches, and they will carry the peace it exudes long after they are back home, in the quick pace of their everyday.
Scorpio: New Orleans
You are the blue in the fire, the red in the water. You are a thousand rivers all nearing midnight, with one moon beginning to rise. Of course, you rise with it. Of course, you look up. There is only eternity now.
Scorpios are arguably the most sensual sign in the zodiac. They’re also mysterious, full of competing auras and energies, and that’s exactly why New Orleans is the perfect place for them.
Naturally, they’ll want to go there with a lover. And if they go alone, they surely won’t be alone for very long. As internal as Scorpios are, they need deep connection. And New Orleans is the kind of city with a lot of soul and a lot of depth.
This space is warm, full of color, and a chandelier as well (and Scorpios love chandeliers, they specifically love to kiss people under them). There’s a real retro vibe to all the spaces in this mansion, too – and honestly, the more nostalgic and retro it is, the more it’s clearly meant for Scorpios. They don’t forget or let go of anything!
Sagittarius: Palo Alto, California
You can’t deny it – you love the earth. There is so much it offers you and you are so thankful. When the hours are late, you will think about what burns. Are you thinking of someone you used to love – they probably are still thinking of you.
All Sagittarians love their freedom. And there is something about this private space in Palo Alto, California that will make them feel free.
They will love how complete it is, with plenty of places to take a nap and dream, and how quickly they can get to the surrounding activities in the town (like the glorious farmers’ markets and their jewel-toned vegetables) and to San Francisco, if they wish to go there.
During the day, they will run and walk along the tree-lined streets, taking in everything around them. At night they will either invite an old friend from the area to sip the local healthy wine (all Sagittarians have plenty of friends everywhere because they are so friendly) or will spend the long hours alone by the fire, writing a book.
Capricorn: Shanghai, China
A horizon is where we can find you. A real measure of order in the day. You repeat the same stories over and over, but anyone who knows you can see—you’re looking for something new. For something to stay.
Capricorns are the hardest workers around. They definitely need a vacation. But don’t be surprised if they take their work with them.
They’re not exactly a “relax by the beach” kind of creature. An industrious city like Shanghai is perfect for them.
They will do a lot of walking (or “research” as they sometimes call it) and find the most ideal place from which to people watch (which they secretly love). Another thing they secretly love is going on trips alone. So don’t be surprised if one day they send you a random selfie from this minimalist, compact studio in Shanghai.
They’ve probably been planning it all along and while they’re there they’ve probably written two novels and read four. Truly, nothing can stop them! They are the gears in the machine. Just like Shanghai.
Aquarius: Minato-ku, Japan
How many years ago did you play the gentle music? Was it a memory, both old and new, that captured you? No one knows but you what lemons you search for. You will find a friend quickly, and they will be strong and there for you.
Aquarians have an old-fashioned love of ethereal beauty and will be drawn in immediately to this charming space in Minato-ku, the Roppongi Shed House.
Clean and warm, this space promises an endless acceptance of whatever it is you plan to do there, whether it be to cook or dream, or just be. Aquarians especially love the latter – just being – and will love this house even more as it promotes their well-being in the generous bathtub and sitting spaces.
When they feel like seeing the sights of the city, it will be easy to, as nearby are very sweet restaurants and tea shops. Adventuring away will be easy too, as nearby are many trains leading elsewhere.
Maybe most of all, the dried flowers and plants decorating the Shed House will delight an Aquarian sensibility endlessly, reminding them that the cycle of life is always beautiful and that with open arms they are part of a living everything.
Pisces: Pinheiros, Brazil
The days fall into each other and you are always trying to reach them. You dip your hand in silver and look for sun. You take some flowers with you back to bed and do not sleep.
They might be the most emotional of your friends, but they’re also the wisest and the ones most up for daydreaming or taking a spontaneous trip.
Pisces are absolutely “people” people. They will find their tribe anywhere and they relish exploring. This gorgeous loft in Pinheiros, Brazil will truly stun them.
Especially the open space and the clawfoot tub, which, good looking getting them out of! Brazil is just far away enough for those late nights when they start drunk texting all their exes and asking them out to dinner.
Though maybe they have some exes in Brazil – truly no place on Earth is safe from Pisces obsession. That’s the good news. Because while Pisces are obsessive, they’re obsessed with the right things. Love!
