ARIES (12 MARCH - 19 APRIL): ULURU
According to Janusz, 'Mars' absence in Aries' ruling sign's zodiac this year, combined with the disruptiveness of Uranus going through it, may add to their sense of frustration'.
'This year, you should finally go on that trip you've always been dreaming of. Choose a destination where you can get rid of any excess energy and refocus on yourself,' he said.
The recommended spot for this sign is Uluru - an incredible spot that too many people keep putting off travelling to.

TAURUS (20 APRIL - 20 MAY): CANBERRA
'From the middle of May, Uranus will enter your sign for a longer visit,' Janusz said.
'As a result, you may get restless or want to break up your routine. Try to remain physically active and do something that is great for the legs or physique: Cycling, rowing, kayaking, and even gardening can be physically and mentally rewarding.'
As a result, Canberra is recommended as the perfect spot.
'Canberra's beautiful Lake Burley Griffin, parks and sprawling layout makes it perfect for active getaways, especially cycling and running. Its many museums, galleries, and exhibitions will exercise your mind too,' Wotif explains.

GEMINI (21 MAY - 20 JUNE): TASMANIA
'The plethora of outer planets that are in heavy earth and water signs for most of the year is concerning for light- and air-hungry Gemini,' Janusz said.
'Take a trip when the days start to get shorter and cooler. Rejuvenate your spirits with a trip that includes animal or bird spotting, especially along their migratory journeys.'
Wotif recommends Tasmania, specifically Freycinet National Park.
'You can enjoy some of Oz's best bird watching. Keep your eyes peeled for white-bellied sea eagles gliding overhead or huge Australasian gametes diving into the ocean for food,' they said.

CANCER (21 JUNE - 22 JULY): HONG KONG
According to Janusz, Cancers love family but also trinkets, and they can be remarkably adept at getting good deals and scoring ancient valuables to gift or to hoard.
'However, the trine Jupiter in Scorpio forms with Cancer can also deepen an existing relationship, so be sure to make time to step out of that shop for a bit and hit the road with a friend,' he said.
The perfect place for those with a Cancer sign is Hong Kong.
'Hong Kong is home to some of the world's best shopping but also has plenty of opportunities to get off the beaten track. Head to Admiralty, Central, and SoHo for big-name brands. For a more grounding experience, visit the Tian Tan Buddha,' Wotif explained.

LEO (23 JULY - 22 AUGUST): BALI
Leos are advised to plan a trip in February or March, when 'Mars is in Sagittarius and Uranus is in Aries' and they will have a little extra 'get-up-and-go'.
'The position of the moon's nodes also makes this the best year for Leo to indulge. Anything playful and carefree will be rewarding, as "the eternal child of the zodiac" loves to frolic,' Janusz said.
Therefore, Bali is an ideal location.
'Bali offers the perfect mix of luxe and adventure. Spend your days exploring the Besakih Temple and the ancient ruins of Goa Gajah, your nights partying at beach clubs, and your downtime unwinding at an indulgent day spa,' Wotif said.

VIRGO (23 AUGUST- 22 SEPTEMBER): THAILAND
'While holidays aren't where one would usually tackle extra work, the service-minded Virgo may find it an auspicious year, with Neptune in Pisces and Jupiter in Pluto, to roll up their sleeves and contribute something to the world,' Janusz said.
'Worthy causes combined with travel promise Virgo a satisfying experience.'
Thailand is perfect for Virgos, especially if they can combine charity or volunteer efforts.
'Specifically, Chiang Mai, where you can volunteer at the Elephant Nature Park. The park rescues and rehabilitates 'domesticated' Asian elephants, many of whom were used for street begging and tourist trekking,' Wotif said.

LIBRA (23 SEPTEMBER - 22 OCTOBER): HALONG BAY
'Jupiter in Scorpio and Venus exalted in Taurus will accentuate Libra's enjoyment of things that come easy and could make something like a cruise more exciting than usual,' Janusz said.
'This would also satisfy Libra's thirst for luxury and give them stories to earn their friends' and colleagues' envy. '
Halong Bay is recommended as the perfect place for Librans.
'A regular cruise might make your friends jealous, but a junk boat cruise around Halong Bay, Vietnam, will make them green with envy! Experience a gorgeous UNSESCO World Heritage site, then explore the history and culture of nearby Hanoi,' Wotif said.

SCORPIO (23 OCTOBER - 21 NOVEMBER): EUROPE
According to Janusz, Jupiter's placement nearly all year in Scorpio makes the Scorpio prone to 'bold actions'.
'This could be the year you really let yourself go,' he said.
'Mitigate your natural intensity with a dose of nurturing, and consider a trip that revolves around a cuisine you love. A sense of all-encompassing enjoyment can bring intense satisfaction and lighten your soul.'
A European adventure is recommended for Scorpios.
'If you're letting yourself go, why not go all out? Take a month to travel through Europe, indulging in your favourite cuisines. Head to Bordeaux for Merlot and escargots, Tuscany for Chianti and chicken liver pate, or Santorini for pomegranates and saganaki,' Wotif said.

SAGITTARIUS (22 NOVEMBER - 21 DECEMBER): PERU
'Sagittarius loves bragging about all the places they've been, and diving deep into other cultures, languages and traditions,' Janusz said.
'Heading off in the early part of the year to a far-off destination just as Venus, Mercury and Mars transverse through your sign will bring you luck. Expand your mind and assert yourself!'
Therefore, Peru is the ideal spot in 2018.
'If you really want something to brag about, we recommend hiking the Quarry Trail in Peru. Known as the 'other' route to Machu Picchu, this quiet 32km trek is one of South America's most incredible walks,' Wotif said.

CAPRICORN (22 DECEMBER - 19 JANUARY): THE KIMBERLEY
According to Janusz, September would be a great month for the overworked Capricorn to take a break and gather their thoughts.
'It will be easier for you to clear your head and organise your next steps. Anything with vast expanses of land and extended horizons that can get you in touch with your ruling element earth would be helpful,' he said.
Wotif recommend The Kimberley for Capricorns this year.
'When it comes to vast expanses of land and never-ending horizons, you can't go past the Kimberley. From stunning Windjana Gorge to gorgeous Cable Beach, this is nature at its best. Visit in early September, before it gets too hot,' Wotif said.

AQUARIUS (20 FEBRUARY - 18 FEBRUARY): BYRON BAY
'Aquarius have a longer visit from Mars coming up this year, from mid-May onward, which will add to any mental disarray you might be experiencing,' Janusz said.
'Ground yourself with your inherent love of art and crafts, perhaps with a trip that lets you improve your skills. Because if there is anything an Aquarius can't live without, it's inspiration.'
Therefore, Byron Bay is perfect.
'Byron's chilled-out vibes, beautiful beaches, and gorgeous national parks are naturally inspiring and tour hạ long attract creative types from around the world. Check out the Byron Bay Arts Trail for local galleries, studios, and showrooms,' Wotif said.

PISCES (19 FEBRUARY - 20 MARCH): THE GREAT BARRIER REEF
According to Janusz, 'the truest water sign is Pisces'.
'Neptune in Pisces all year long leaves you dreamier than usual. But don't just dream about it Pisces, do it! Whether it's a holiday near the seaside or self-improvement workshops, the world is your oyster this year, kynghidongduong.vn waiting to make your dreams come true,' he said.
The Great Barrier Reef is the ideal spot for these people.
'A UNSECO World Heritage site and the world's largest living organism, the Great Barrier Reef is the ultimate water getaway. Stay in Port Douglas to also check out the Daintree Rainforest - the world's oldest living rainforest,' Wotif said.
