Honeymoon Planning: Follow the Stars to Your Ideal Getaway

Ever wondered why certain locales seem to be whispering your name? The answer may be in the stars. Check your sign (and your sweetie's) to see what types of trips will fan your desire. Star-crossed lovers should seek a destination with both elements -- or split your trip -- to satisfy each person's primal yearnings.

Earth Signs (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)

As Mother Nature's little nymphs, earth signs want to be outside and active. Water sports, skiing, kayaking, and horseback riding are right up their alley. Think beautiful scenery, simple -- yet clean -- accommodations, and hearty food. Taureans are known as the Epicures of the Zodiac, after all.

Air Signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)

Inquisitive and open-minded, these visionaries are looking for a destination that will stir their imaginations. Busy, colorful city streets, exotic foods, and exquisite details will keep them riveted. Consider journeying to a faraway location such as Morocco, Turkey, or India; a city with lots of day-trip options is also a good bet.

Fire Signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)

These speed-demon fire signs want it all and they want it fast! Life is a pursuit of passion for these ardent just-do-it types. Big open spaces and big ideas such as majestic nature and sweeping historical sights, or thrill-seeking vacations like white-water rafting, downhill skiing, and motorcycle touring, will satisfy their needs.

Water Signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)

Perhaps it is the ocean's murky depths that steer people born under these emotional signs to feel happiest by the water and inspired by mystery -- the haunted cemeteries of New Orleans or the dark tombs of Egypt, for example. One requirement: Only five-star accommodations will placate this sensitive soul.
