Picking the right travel buddy can be a tricky business. How do you find someone you get along with, who shares your interests and idea of what constitutes a great vacation? Astrologer and avid traveler Susan Miller says the answers to many of these questions could lie in our zodiac signs.
If that name sounds familiar, it’s because the founder of AstrologyZone is the favored astrologer of millions around the world; her horoscopes are read online by 11 million people each month. “I’m privileged to get to meet so many people around the world and hear their personal stories,” she says. But travel hasn’t always been a part of Miller’s life: having suffered from a debilitating, painful congenital condition for much of her childhood, she says she felt as though life began at 20. “I was desperate to see the world,” she says. “I traveled wherever I could and have continued to do so as part of my work.”
This summer, Miller is traveling to Daios Cove, a luxury resort in Crete, where she’s hosting a weeklong residency from June 2 to 9, featuring a series of talks and private readings. Located on the northeast coast of Crete, close to the picturesque seaside town of Agios Nikolaus, the resort’s rooms, suites, and villas all have breathtaking, uninterrupted views across the glittering waters of Daios Bay and the Mediterranean Sea. “I’ve never been to Greece, but always wanted to go. I hope this will turn into an annual event that will enable me to keep traveling the world, and getting to meet my readers in person,” she says.
So who should you bring along with you to visit Miller in Greece—or anywhere you go, for that matter? We asked her to weigh in on the best travel buddy for every star sign.
March 21 – April 19
You’re a born leader, a pioneer, and a discoverer, which means you like being active on vacation, and can often be found exploring a new city, hiking, or playing sports. Fiercely independent, you’re not a team player and are happiest spending quality time one-on-one. That’s why your ideal travel companion is a partner or close friend. As for zodiac compatibility, Aries and Leo are both high-energy, bold signs, and, while you’re more disposed to outdoor pursuits, Leo enjoys the finer things in life so, together, you’ll find a good balance.
April 20 – May 20
If you’re born under the sign of the bull, you’re very sensual and love pampering yourself. You relish the feel of the plush robes in the spa, the smell of lavish aromatherapy, and the pleasure of a massage. Plan a vacation with plenty of luxury and not too much rushing around, like a relaxing, indulgent adult holiday at an exclusive resort with no kids or, failing that, an upscale hotel with babysitters. You’re well suited to traveling with Pisces, since Pisceans are very accommodating and happy to go with the flow.
