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.

Geminis, social butterflies who love making new friends and interacting with locals, should book a group tour.

May 21 – June 20
A social butterfly, you love traveling, learning, and experiencing new things. Often restless at home, you’ll want vacations that help you forget your normal life for a while. Once at your destination, take public transport so you can strike up conversations with locals. Gemini is the sign of siblings, so plan a trip with your brothers or sisters—or book yourself on a group tour to make new friends. You also enjoy traveling with Sagittarius, since you’re both intellectual, philosophical, and energetic. Plus, Gemini’s air makes Sagittarius’ fire shine brighter.


June 21 – July 22
The sign of family and children, Cancer is often happiest at home—but that doesn’t mean you have to stay there. Since Cancers also enjoy a great relationship with their parents, plan an extended family vacation with the kids in tow. The crab does not like to move around too much; so try to slow down on your next trip, savoring home cooking in small restaurants and meeting locals. You’ll most enjoy a holiday with Virgo, a highly organized earth sign that will joyfully map out the details of the trip.


July 23 – August 22
Spot a red carpet and a Leo will not be far from it. A fire sign, you relish glamour and excitement, and prefer staying in five-star hotels and booking tables at Michelin-starred restaurants. Since you love to experience upscale culture, snag tickets to the opera or ballet or join an exclusive private members’ clubs with locations around the world where you can meet like-minded people. You’ll enjoy traveling with one of these fabulous new friends who shares your expensive tastes. Gemini is a good match for Leo, since you’re both passionate about seeing the world and experiencing everything a new place has to offer.

Leos, who often have expensive tastes, should plan ahead with their Gemini travel partner to get the best deal on a five-star hotel and a table at the city's hottest restaurant.

August 23 – September 22
Always well-organized, you should start planning where to go and what to see months in advance of a trip. Since you value your time on the ground, do plenty of research and read reviews of restaurants and destinations to maximize your trip. You form strong relationships with people at work and would enjoy traveling with a coworker you trust. Be mindful that Virgos sometimes have delicate digestive systems, so order light, well-prepared dishes of top-quality fresh fish and vegetables. You travel well with Pisces since you both enjoy similar cultural pursuits.


September 23 – October 22
Represented by balance, Libra rules marriage—so prioritize trips with your partner if you’re in a relationship. If you’re single, odds are you’re searching for a partner and are ideally suited to singles’ vacations—or singles’ cruises—where you could meet someone new. Libra is the most social sign of the zodiac, which means everyone wants to get to know you, and you love nightlife, so you won’t be solo for long. Gemini makes a great travel buddy for you, since you’re both social, friendly air signs who are curious and energetic.


October 23 – November 21
As the sexiest, most passionate sign of the zodiac, Scorpios prefer traveling with a romantic partner. This sign is not one for superficial small talk or rushing about. You value your own space so, when traveling with a friend, be sure to book your own room and make private time for meditating, reading, and unwinding. You’ll almost always prefer to be somewhere close to water, and are happy staying in one place and getting to know it thoroughly—much like Cancer, which is why you two do well when traveling together.

Sagittarians are well-suited to solo travel—and cruises offer the chance to get away without totally checking out.

November 22 – December 21
You could drop a Sagittarius by parachute anywhere in the world and the archer will find its way around. Travel is not just something you enjoy, it is a basic need, and nothing makes you happier than being on a long-distance, preferably foreign, trip. You’re well-suited to solo travel, as you are so gregarious, so adventurous, that you’ll make friends anywhere. (You’ll love trips that offer freedom, big skies, and wide panoramas.) You’ll also enjoy traveling with fellow fire sign Aries, as you two share a desire for an active, energetic schedule.


December 22 – January 19
You prize the past and are best suited for trips to the Coliseum in Rome or Knossos in Crete. The most ambitious sign of the zodiac, getting ahead at work is never far from your mind. If a work trip or conference is on the horizon, there’s no doubt you should be the first to sign up. Capricorn’s ruler Saturn connects you with older people, making you more accommodating to your parents' needs and happy to travel with older parents or relatives—even your in-laws. You travel well with Virgo, since you both prefer a cultural vacation over a beach trip.


January 20 – February 18
Aquarius’ ruler Uranus is the planet of innovation and science and teaches you to question rules and regulations. Since you stay abreast of current events and are often troubled by the imbalances in the world, you may travel to help those who have been marginalized, or to address environmental concerns. (Aquarius is the humanitarian sign, after all.) You’ll love trips centered on astronomy and travel that expands your knowledge of space and the universe. (Start planning for the next solar eclipse.) Like Sagittarius, you might like to travel alone, or with fellow air sign Gemini, who would be eager to experience the same aspects of a trip.


February 19 – March 20
The most spiritual sign of the zodiac, you enjoy visiting churches and religious landmarks, not only for the spiritual experience but also to admire their historic beauty. You keep your own schedule on vacation, so don’t worry if following a tour guide doesn't fit your style. When traveling, you’ll be happier if you don’t have too much planned. Pisceans often enjoy a strong bond with their mothers, making you ideally suited to a mother-son or mother-daughter vacation. You get on with a Taurus, who shares your desire to take the time to appreciate the beauty of a destination’s culture and nature.
