Everyone reacts differently to the holidays and all the festivities they portend. Some jump at any chance to party; others wince at the thought of all that chatter and noise. How you approach the holiday season is greatly influenced by the temperament of your Sun sign.
Leo tops this list for wanting to shine, sparkle and fizz. Winter isn't their favorite time of year, but they'll never miss out on all the social occasions of the season. If they're throwing the party, you can expect glittering decorations and top-quality eats. And the Lion will be dressed to the nines -- especially on New Year's Eve!
Partying it up with a six pack of beer just won't do for Libra and Cancer. These two signs adore classy celebrations, and they always treat their guests like royalty. Their ideal party is tasteful and elegant, and they're sure to usher in the New Year with sophistication.
Gemini, Aquarius and Sagittarius are all social butterflies, continually on the move, mixing and mingling. Sagittarius would like to party where it's sunny, preferably somewhere exotic. Aquarius doesn't care so much where the celebration is, as long as it's indoors and warm. Gemini just wants lots of space, no matter if it's at a downtown loft or on top of a mountain.
Taurus might be uncomfortable at the prospect of change -- and of course, what's a New Year but a transition? Consequently, the Bull needs to be compensated with nourishing food, festive drinks and comfortable surroundings. They'll start 2011 the way they intend to live it: stable and strong.
Capricorn is a New Year's baby, so they're a bit more sociable and outgoing than most. They do, however, have their own peculiar way of ushering in the New Year by mourning the year gone by. Their New Year's party should have the best of everything, while being suave and chic all in one fell swoop!
Scorpio understands the significance of transformation and, like their symbol (the Serpent), will have a private rite of passage in which they shrug off the old and embrace the new. They'll very likely have a passionate encounter with their favorite person; and if they're single, they'll be on the lookout for that magic look across a crowded room.
Aries is happiest when facing something new, so a year-end party is always one of their favorites. They'll want to intensify the evening's energy with fireworks or a bonfire, adding a touch of vitality and inspiration to the celebration.
Virgo is in a sociable mood in December and early January, when they feel the urge to assume a center-stage position more than usual. They should make their entry into 2011 a moment of real significance with quality catering, stimulating conversation and the chance to catch up with old friends.
If everyone else at the party is lively and enthusiastic, Pisces's inner joy will soar. That said, they're also sensitive to the cosmic mood and will want a private moment to contemplate the shift from 2010 to 2011. They'll do well to step outside briefly, gaze upward and watch the stars at play.
