The snow is melting, the flowers are blooming, and the sun is calling your name. With summer just around the corner, now is the time to start making your summer plans. And even if you don’t need to book a ticket or reserve a spot just yet . . . well, if you’re like us, you probably can’t help but look out the window and hope the sunshine days get here soon.
Aries (March 21st-April 19th)
No phones or internet connections may bore most people, but not adventurous Aries. Summertime means campgrounds are open, and you’ll love a day of hiking followed by a night of stargazing.
Taurus (April 20th-May 20th)
A staycation satisfies your homebody nature while still entertaining you more than your weekly Netflix marathon. Try visiting downtown in your own city and see all the sites that tourists usually go out of their way to see. Bonus: a tour of the local restaurants will satisfy your excellent taste in food, too!
Gemini (May 21st-June 20th)
Gemini needs stimulation from new sights and sounds, so a road trip with your squad is in order. Roll down the windows, crank up the summer jams, and enjoy a weekend away from your hometown.
Cancer (June 21st-July 22nd)
Whether you’re already an expert chef or a complete novice, you should definitely brush up on your cooking skills. Invite your friends over for a potluck on the patio and show off the new recipes you’re finally ready to try. If your experimental meal doesn’t work out well on the first try, at least the refreshing cocktails might distract from the taste.
Leo (July 23rd-August 22nd)
This fire sign needs to fire up the grill because a barbecue is the best summer plan for you. You love entertaining a party, and nothing is more relaxing than good food, good friends, and good weather.
Virgo (August 23rd-September 22nd)
With your eye for detail, a wine tour sounds like a perfect day for you. Maybe you can pick up the wine connoisseur’s specific tastes –– or you can swirl your glass, murmur a “hmm, yes, indeed,” and secretly think all the wine tastes the same. Either way, it’ll be a fun time.
Libra (September 23rd-October 22nd)
Listen, winter is not coming. It’s time to put down the serious books and pick up some lighter beach reading. Indulge yourself in some breezy, fun books or magazines, bring them outside, and enjoy the sun on your face while you’re turning the pages.
Scorpio (October 23rd-November 21st)
Flashing lights, excitement, people, and high spirits feed your soul. You’re tired of being cooped up indoors all winter, so get ready for the season of boardwalks and amusement parks.
Sagittarius (November 22nd-December 21st)
It’s no surprise to a Sagittarius that we recommend traveling, yet you don’t mind because you’ve already been bitten by the travel bug. This year, try to mix it up. If you’ve been to a big city, check out a national park; if you’ve been overseas, visit a little-known destination in your home country.
Capricorn (December 22nd-January 19th)
Admittedly, your fitness goals may have taken a backseat to your career and relationships in the past few months. With the warmer weather approaching, now is the perfect time to go for one of your fitness bucket list items. Whether it’s a 5K race, a triathlon, or just jogging one full mile, you’re ready for the next level.
Aquarius (January 20th-February 18th)
Since you’re always ready for the next challenge, perhaps this summer is the year you finally learn to surf. Or if you already know how to do that, maybe you can amp it up to skydiving. On the other hand, if you haven’t mastered riding a bicycle yet, maybe you can start with that.
Pisces (February 19th-March 20th)
Start saving up now because the music festival scene is calling your name. You love your streaming music services, but you crave the energy of live music. Between tickets and new threads, this might be a more expensive plan; however, the memories you make will be totally worth it. Life is more about experiences than material things, anyway.
