Whether you love it or hate it, you have to admit that New Year's Eve is one of the biggest nights of the year. It's the end of one part of your life and the start of a slew of new beginnings, both of which are worthy of some sort of celebration... except, sometimes, deciding what kind of celebration you should be participating in can be exhausting. What should you be looking forward to the most on New Year's Eve? It's time to turn to the stars for planning inspiration, because your zodiac sign can show you what you'll actually want to do on Dec. 31. Mercury retrograde will be long gone and 2018's first supermoon will be on its way — so, really, why wouldn't you want to pay attention to what the signs may be trying to tell you?
While NYE is widely considered the most epic party night of the year, not everyone enjoys ringing in a new year with a drink in their hand and confetti in their hair — and that's fine! Your astrological sign gives a lot of clues about what would make you feel the happiest on this big night, and can maybe even help you figure out a game plan ahead of time, so you're not scrambling to find something to do a few days before. Let your horoscope show you the way! Here's what you can start to feel excited about for New Year's Eve, because you should be enjoying yourself as we kiss 2017 goodbye.
Aries (March 21 — April 19): Having The Time Of Your Life At A Big Party
As an Aries, you're super active, you always want to be doing something, and you probably have a very busy social life. New Year's Eve is your night to shine at a huge party with all, or most of, your friends. According to Astrology Zone, "For now, on New Year's Eve, you seem in the mood to leave office matters for another day, and be surrounded with those you care deeply about. Some Aries will be moving house at this time, and it is possible, and if so, try to work in time to sip a glass of chilled champagne and nibble an appetizer." You heard them! Start to get excited about a fun night filled with drinks, good food, and lots of crazy moments.
Taurus (April 20 — May 20) Getting Closer To Bae
As a Taurus, you have a lot of life-long friendships and you're super loyal. And, luckily for you (maybe?), December might be a good month for love. If you're seeing someone or crushing on someone, you'll want to spend New Years Eve with them — alone, or with a group of mutual friends. Cafe Astrology says, "The heavy emphasis on your intimacy sector in the first three weeks of December suggests a more desirous month or paying particular attention to your innermost desires and needs. Your intimate life is a big deal to you this month, so that time spent developing a key, deep relationship or on your psychological development is time well spent." The upcoming full moon is going to positively affect your love life, so make this NYE a romantic one.
Gemini (May 21 — June 20) Doing Something New and Exciting
Geminis have likely had a tough month, considering the fact that Mercury retrograde fell in Gemini (yikes!). This calls for a special New Years Eve. According to Astrology Zone, "New Year’s Eve may be just your cup of tea this year – the moon will be in Gemini, so you can have things just your way." For you, this probably means changing it up a bit, seeking excitement, and experiencing something new. On Dec. 31, travel to a new place, check out a new spot you've been interested in, or be outgoing and meet new people.
Cancer (June 21 — July 22) Having A Romantic Night
Cancers are super emotional, so it makes sense that one of the biggest nights of the year would involve a lot of emotion too. According to Astrology Zone, Dec. 27 is a great day for romance for you — so bring that vibe into Dec. 31. Broadly says, "The month wraps up with Mars connecting with Neptune on Dec. 28, helping things click into place at the end of this long and trying year. Mars is a proactive, fiery energy, while Neptune, the planet of fantasy, is dreamy. It’s a wonderful time for romance, adventure and fun." Look forward to a romantic night with your significant other — or, if you're single, maybe flirting with someone cute.
Leo (July 23 — August 22) Hosting An NYE Bash
Anyone born in the Leo sign is a natural leader, so put your skills of creativity and your ability to always have fun to good use — get excited to throw a big party on New Year's Eve. Before you balk at the work, hear me out! Your December horoscope says you'll be feeling a lot of energy, and you'll need to direct it towards something positive. A party is the perfect way for a Leo to enjoy taking the lead and having a good time with your loved ones.
Virgo (August 23 — September 23) Being Surrounded By Friends
As a Virgo, you are most likely practical, hard-working, and super careful. This New Year's Eve, though, you should looking forward to getting out of your comfort zone a bit and spend the night surrounded by friends having a good time instead of thinking about work. According to Astrology Zodiac Signs, your December horoscope says, "You don’t have to be practical and grounded as much as you normally tend to be. And according to Astrology Zone, "New Year’s Eve brings you very close to the full moon on Jan. 1, in Cancer, 12 degrees. At the time, you will have five planets in your house of love and fun, so it appears you will want to go out and be with friends to ring in the New Year." Get ready to have all sorts of fun on NYE!
Libra (September 23 — October 22) Setting New Goals For 2018
For you, Libra, New Years Eve isn't going to just be about hanging with friends and doing something fun. This is the perfect time for you to reflect on your past and think about your future. You'll be spending the end of 2017 setting new goals and getting yourself excited about your 2018 plans. According to Cafe Astrology, the end of the month is the best time to get organized: "This can be a time of a new commitment to organizing home life or a family or home-related project. New responsibilities or limitations may emerge now, but this can get you into a position of feeling strong and in charge if you aim to meet your obligations and get organized."
Scorpio (October 23 — November 21) A Sexy Midnight Kiss
Scorpios are known for being passionate, both when it comes to emotions and sexy times. You know the famed midnight kiss on New Year's Eve? You can look forward to yours being extra special this year. According to Broadly, "The month wraps up with Mars making a harmonious connection with Neptune (currently in fellow Water sign Pisces) on Dec. 28, creating a dreamy, whimsical atmosphere — Mars is passion and Neptune is all about fantasy and romance. It’s a brilliant time to make art, or to make out with someone."
Sagittarius (October 22 — December 21) Feeling Relaxed With Loved Ones
Good news, Sagittarius: New Years Eve will feel like exactly what you need to relax and have a good time. Thanks to Saturn leaving your first house, you'll finally truly feel refreshed, and NYE is the perfect time to celebrate that. According to your December horoscope, "With Saturn finally leaving your first house and Venus rushing through it, restrictions you have felt for a while will suddenly vanish as the end of the year approaches, and you will see chances to enjoy your life, have fun, sing, dance, and be in love." Live it up this Dec. 31 — you deserve it.
Capricorn (December 22 — January 19) Having A Cozy Night With Your Partner, Friends, or Family
As a Capricorn, you are typically very responsible, hard-working, and serious. But this New Year's Eve, don't think about all of that — let yourself have a nice night with the people you care about. According to Astrology Zone, "...this New Year’s Eve should be special for you. Let your partner make all the plans, and simply enjoy being surprised. Even if the two of you stay home and together cook up a beautiful dinner as the silent snow falls outside your window, it will be a memorable, romantic night that you will always remember." If you're single, enjoy a cozy night with family or close friends.
Aquarius (January 20 — February 19) Staying In And Relaxing
As an Aquarius, you're probably naturally a little more shy and quiet, so spending NYE at a big party probably isn't the first thing on your mind. New Year's Eve doesn't have to mean a crazy night, and this year, you'll really look forward to relaxing and having a night in. According to Cafe Astrology, "By the last week of the month, you'll be in need of extra rest and time to recoup or to reconsider. You are beginning a period best used for emotional renewal, tying up loose ends, and laying low. Your hunches or ideas can be very much worth your attention. Even if it seems counter-productive, sometimes slowing down helps us move forward as we stop overthinking, and this can be the case now."
Pisces (February 20 — March 20) Planning A Fun Trip
This New Years Eve, you can look forward to planning something rather than actually doing something. The end of the month is the perfect time for you to put your energy into planning a fun trip. Broadly says, "The month wraps up with Mars making an easy connection with your planetary ruler, Neptune, on Dec. 28, creating a dreamy yet passionate vibe. You’ll feel artistically inspired, and opportunities for adventure and romance will arrive." Plan the trip of your dreams as you head into 2018!
