Astrology Expert Reveals The Perfect Vacation Spot For A Scorpio - Exclusive

Those born under the water sign of Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) are known to be among the most intense individuals (via Allure). While water signs are all adept at navigating the emotional realm, Scorpios are often mistaken for fire signs because of the level of intensity, passion, and drive they display in all areas of their lives. They set big goals for themselves and hold themselves to a very high standard, both in their professional lives and their personal lives. As such, they tend to hold others to those same standards. 

If you are lucky enough to have a Scorpio as a close friend or partner, they will be among the most loyal, fierce allies you'll ever have. In return, they will expect the same effort and loyalty. Similarly, if a Scorpio works with you or for you, they will put in 110 percent effort, and they will expect those efforts to be respected and rewarded appropriately. A Scorpio will never stay where they are not valued, and they make no apologies for wanting the very best for themselves. 

When a hard-working, hard-playing Scorpio needs a break, where can they go to both delve deeply into something that will spark their intensely intelligent minds and also allow for relaxation?       

Where a Scorpio should escape to

In their piece about the ideal vacation spots for each sign, Best Life asserts that Cairo, Egypt is the perfect destination for Scorpio. Their reasoning is this intelligent sign is always looking to learn, explore, and adventure, and a trip to a place as storied and historic as Cairo would provide all of that. We asked professional Astrologist Cameron Martin of Path and Purpose what he thought of this, and he agreed wholeheartedly.

"Cairo is a place of deep history, spiritual healing, and a mysterious past sure to delight Scorpio," Martin told us. "The city juxtaposes ancient and new with a long history of many different religions and political influences," he explained. He went on to say that while visiting this historic city, a Scorpio has the opportunity to "explore the mysteries surrounding the iconic pyramids, the Great Sphinx, and the mummified pharaohs of days long past. Scorpio is sure to have a transformative experience in this city where there is way more below the surface than what you'll see at first glance."

What to do and see

So once a Scorpio makes it Cairo for their adventure, what should be on the to-do list? In its article on Cairo, Earth Trekkers says you should reserve at least a few hours to visit the pyramids at Giza, as not only can you tour the pyramids themselves, but you can see the nearby Sphinx and even take a camel ride around the area. It's worth noting that you can bundle tickets to the different attractions at the Giza Plateau, and there are discounts available for students.

And while you've likely seen Egyptian artifacts in museums at other locations in the world, to get the true experience and immerse yourself in the history and culture, you'll want to head to the Egyptian Museum. Here, along with countless other artifacts and exhibits, you can see the famous golden sarcophagus of King Tut.  And to see the historic center of the city and modern Islamic culture meld in one place, visit Islamic Cairo, which is a World Cultural Heritage Site. 

For an immersive historical and cultural experience that will broaden a Scorpio's worldview, Cairo is your destination.
