Where to Go for Your Honeymoon, Based on Your Sign
Over-the-top luxury resorts located on private islands. Hip rustic retreats soaked in culture and history. A Downton Abbey-like guesthouse that brings fairytale fantasies to life. When it comes to romantic honeymoon destinations, there’s no shortage of options. Narrowing down those options however, is a whole different story.
While it may seem crazy to choose your honeymoon based on astrology, our zodiac sign has a lot to do with our tastes and instincts. (For example, Taurus loves anywhere they can get a really amazing spa treatment, whereas Aries and Sagittarius prefer action packed adventures.)
