Free-spirited and independent, Virgos are intelligent beings able to solve problems and get things done for themselves. Your logical and analytical mind means that many look up to you as a leader who strives for the best. You’ll be starting off the year in a modest position, but by the end of 2016 could easily be the one in charge – pay attention to this change early December.[caption id="attachment_2821" align="aligncenter" width="1200"]Photo courtesy of Moyan Brenn / Tokyo Shibuya[/caption]
With your innate drive for excellence, you’re attracted to cities that pride themselves on constant renewal and reinvention. The obvious choice for Virgo is none other than Tokyo, Japan’s fascinating metropolis with a reputation for high-quality and exceptional food, service and entertainment. Take a peek into the country’s world famous Harajuku subculture at Yoyogi Park, packed with Gothic Lolita and other extreme Japanese youth fashion on weekends. Or immerse in Japan’s rich cultural traditions at Asakusa, home to Tokyo’s oldest, ancient Buddhist Sensoji temple. With a diverse offering as this, there is much to be discovered for the Virgo from the Asian city that never sleeps.

The diplomat of the zodiac, Libras are highly empathetic with a knack for putting themselves in other’s shoes. In times of conflict, they are the ones to make things right and create a harmony in their life and surroundings.

The Libra list of vacation desires is long: a bustling nightlife, excellent food and lively shopping with plenty of cultural activities, conditions where you thrive the most with a group of your closest friends. Few places can cater to the Libra the way Bangkok can, being the ultimate destination for the social animal of the zodiac. There is much to do in the land of smiles, whether you’re looking to restock your wardrobe, a pampering weekend of massages and spas, or simply to give the infamous deep-fried grasshoppers a go.
Oct 24 – Nov 22
A force to be reckoned with, Scorpio, you pride yourself for your resourcefulness, sincerity, and eagerness to experience and express emotions. Independence is important to you and your ideal way to relax is blending in and dropping out, rather than socialising. Always on the hunt for a grand passion, your intensity reaches every aspect of your life – work hard, play hard, and vacation harder.[caption id="attachment_2817" align="aligncenter" width="1200"]Karaoke Clubs in Jongro, Seoul[/caption]
Best channeling the Scorpio’s abundance of inward energy, is a vacation to a city just as intense: Seoul. This sprawling metropolis is a travellers’ playground, mashing up non-stop entertainment, tradition, and excellent local cuisine. Only a long holiday to Seoul will do justice to the dynamism the city offers to visitors, and the Scorpio will find happiness basking in this sensory overload of lights, music and food, losing oneself in a modern city so similar to home yet so foreign and refreshing. The Koreans’ emotional expressiveness will serve to excite you even more, releasing you from any emotional inhibitions you may have developed from your professional life.
Nov 23 – Dec 21

Dec 22 – Jan 20
Known as the hardest worker of the zodiac, Capricorns possess high ambition and determination. Your single-minded focus on work, sense of responsibility and sincerity makes you someone whom many rely on, and seek advice from. This year, you’ll accomplish more than you imagined by going slow and steady towards your goals. But in the meantime, a vacation break in between will do the Capricorn much good and prevent burnout.[caption id="attachment_2811" align="aligncenter" width="1200"]Centara Ras Fushi Resort and Spa[/caption]
