Your Holiday Season Plans, According to Your Zodiac Sign

By Amelia Quint

You’ve probably already received your fair share of holiday invites—but before you RSVP yes, take a minute to pause and decide how you want to celebrate. Will you go out on the town, or are you more of a homebody? Ahead, we’ve got your plans sorted according to your zodiac sign, so you can rest assured they’re tailored for you to have a great time.

Aries | Sit by the fire

Fast is your preferred pace, and with Jupiter in your sign this year, you’ve been busier than you have in ages. This holiday season, find time to slow down and enjoy some fireside fun. Whether you cozy up by a roaring fireplace with a cup of cocoa or build your own campfire and toast marshmallows with friends, you’ll feel completely in your element.

Taurus | Host a potluck

You’ve been through a lot these past few years, thanks to Uranus—the planet of surprise—in your sign. If you have exciting updates to share, invite your friends over for a potluck so everyone can catch up. Ask them to bring their go-to holiday dish, and show off your foodie side by curating cute hors d’oeuvres and themed drinks to toast how far you’ve come. 

Gemini | Have a movie marathon

Having Mars retrograde in your sign since October means your energy levels are probably pretty low this season—but don’t worry, you won’t even have to leave the house (or the couch) for this one! Invite your crew over for a movie marathon, matching PJs and all. You’re already the resident film expert for your family or friend group, so we’ll leave the selection to you. 

Cancer | Deck the halls

You’re the sign of home and all things cozy, so it’s no wonder you love that buzzy, excited feeling that comes from putting up holiday decorations. Go ahead and turn your place into a winter wonderland, complete with garlands, tinsel, and twinkly lights. Bonus points for adding a sprig of mistletoe and pointing it out to your Bumble match.

Leo | Sing holiday carols

You probably performed in a holiday production or two as a kid—and there’s a good chance you still remember the choreography. So, why not show off your skills and belt out some carol karaoke? If you’re feeling brave, ask a musically-inclined friend to join you for a cover of your favorite seasonal song. Or, just dance in your living room to your best nostalgic playlist.

Virgo | Donate to charity

There are few things you enjoy more than a deep clean, so this year, do it for a good cause. Gather up clothes, household items, or toys and donate them to a charity that’ll give them a second life. You’ll brighten up someone else’s holiday, and clear out much-needed space so you can start your new year fresh.

Libra | Dress up for New Year’s Eve

As the zodiac’s resident stylist, you can’t resist an opportunity to dress up. Fancy occasions have been rare these past few years, so this time around, grab that outfit that’s been languishing in the back of your closet and give it—and yourself—a chance to shine this New Year’s Eve. Even better, wear something inspired by who you want to be in 2023.

Scorpio | Set intentions for the new year

With two life-changing eclipses in your sign since last fall, you’ve been reinventing yourself, slowly but surely. This holiday season, you’re ready for what comes next. It’s the perfect time to write down your intentions for the new year in detail. Turn it into a ritual by lighting your favorite seasonal candle and making a wish.

Sagittarius | Share a tradition

You’re worldly, wise, and love learning about other cultures—and what better way to do it than through holiday traditions? You could host friends and share one of your favorites, like making gingerbread houses. Or, get together and explore different New Year’s Eve customs from around the world to ring in 2023, like wearing white in Brazil or smashing plates in Denmark.

Capricorn | Shop the sales

You love a good deal and are willing to wait for the right one to come along. In fact, you’ve probably waited all year to splurge on that one thing you’ve been coveting during the after-holiday sales! This year, make your wishlist, check it twice, and invest in things that you know will set you up for success in 2023.

Aquarius | Do arts and crafts

You’ve worked hard the last two years thanks to serious Saturn in your sign, and it’s finally time to take a break. Tap into your inner child and give yourself a creative outlet with some holiday arts and crafts. Grab the graham crackers and build a gingerbread house—or, just use paper and scissors to make a few snowflakes. It’ll be cathartic while also getting you in the festive spirit.

Pisces | Make and send holiday cards

You’re sentimental about the holidays, especially spending time with loved ones. You might not be able to see everyone in one trip or gathering, so this year, try crafting your own holiday cards. You could make everyone smile with silly photos and updates on your pets and emotional support plants, or warm their hearts with sweet, personalized notes.
