As summer comes to close, this is a wonderful time to foster family ties. Taking a trip together can help you bond, sharing experiences that will last a lifetime. When trying to decide what type of trip to take, exploring the element of each of your family members’ Sun signs can give you greater insight as you plan for a fall season of fun and adventure.
Air (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius)
Air signs gravitate towards learning, communication and socializing. If you have teen-agers, you may want to offer to let them invite a friend along. Otherwise, plan an adventure that includes plenty of opportunities for learning and engaging with others. Air signs enjoy the fast pace of travel and love to talk to everyone they meet along the way. They’ll enjoy learning a new language since it gives them new opportunities to communicate.
Trip ideas: Living history or historical re-enactment events, museums, language learning trips.
Fire (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius)
Fire signs need fun and plenty of opportunities to do their own thing. Plan a trip that lets each person decide on one activity or location to visit. Freedom to roam and plenty of opportunities to play will ensure that Fire signs have a good time. Tightly scheduled and highly organized trips that demand that everyone is doing the same thing will not go over so well.
Trip ideas: Amusement parks, adventure or extreme sports (rock climbing, river rafting, sky diving).
Water (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces)
Water signs may not be excited about leaving home, so make sure that wherever you go is as familiar and comfortable as possible. This element enjoys a trip that involves an emotional or creative component of some kind, so plan experiences that take this into account. Since water is so sensitive, it may be best to try and travel slowly rather than rushing to get lots of things done at once.
Trip ideas: Family reunions, cooking, food or art tours
Earth (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn)
It can be hard to get Earth signs away from work since they prefer to be doing something useful rather than taking a trip just for fun. For that reason, making a trip interesting for this element usually means making it purposeful. They need to feel that they’ve accomplished something by the end of the trip.
Trip ideas: Volunteer or service work, tours related to work or professional goals.
