Dance challenge (on the bar!) or a cozy champagne date with bae? The AstroTwins help you curate the most festive New Year’s Eve celebration for your star sign.
Dial up the fantasy factor! No style is too outré for you this NYE, Aries. Before the stores close, make a last minute dash for stackable glitter lashes or an outfit with a high-sequin count. Although you may be slow to get rolling, shortly before the stroke of midnight, your ruling planet, show-stopping Mars bursts into your sign for its biennial six-week visit. Talk about starting the year with fireworks! You’ll be in your passionate, fun loving and free-spirited element, so make sure you’re doing it up Aries style, whether that means driving out to the starlit desert (a la Aries Lady Gaga in her Joanne phase) or trying to squeeze in as many midnight kisses as you can pucker up for in 60 seconds. And no mercy invites! Although you may feel guilty about leaving someone out early of your plans, you’ll only wind up resentful if you let this a socially awkward friend slow you down—or make you stay at a party longer than you want to.
The more might seem like the merrier earlier in the day, but curate your nighttime crew with care. Before the stroke of midnight, excitable Mars pulls out of your social sector and decamps to your boundless and meditative twelfth house for six weeks. In a split second, your patience for crowds could become paper thin. If you’re going to a larger venue, it’s worth splurging on the VIP tickets so you can have room for your dance moves…and to breathe! Because this “no limits” transit could make you prone to excess, count your champagne flutes. Some Bulls may prefer to ring in 2019 ceremonially with a meditation, sound bath or a ritual. How about burning a list of what you’re leaving behind in 2018, then making a vision board for the year ahead? You can always hit the clubs after your “woo” time, if FOMO strikes. Looking for love? Don’t hide out when the ball drops! With the Scorpio moon hovering in your partnership house, a midnight kiss could evolve into a 2019 lovefest. Attached Taureans will feel very couple-y on NYE, so a party of two could also be perfect.
Black-tie NYE, Gemini? Sure, as long as you can kick off your heels and dance like no one was watching. With driven Mars powering up your status-oriented tenth house until 9:20PM ET, you may have plans to send off 2018 amidst the cultural cognoscenti. But by the time the fireworks start popping, the red planet will be cooling out in your down-to-earth eleventh house, and you’ll be in no mood for any stuffy affairs. A party with “the people” will be much more your speed, at least near the stroke of midnight. Get the fancy stuff out of the way early, then burn it up on at a buzzy dive bar, where the drinks are cheap and the people have some edge. Even if you didn’t shell out a bazillion bucks for a VIP ticket, your mind will still be on your goals this NYE. Here’s an affordable Plan B: Invite friends over to make 2019 vision boards, then pop open some champagne, push back the furniture and turn your living room into a dancehall!
Wanderlust may already have led you to a far-flung destination as 2018 turns over into 2019. Will you watch the ball drop from Sao Paolo, Seattle, Seoul…? Even a last-minute road-trip to celebrate with friends in a nearby city would be fun. But no matter your GPS coordinates, make sure you’re partying in style. With the moon simmering in Scorpio all night, a sultry and glamorous NYE might be just what you need to shake off any stress that dogged you in 2018. Glitz yourself up, then pose for a photo shoot. Romantically, there are bound to be fireworks, especially if you mingle with creative and interesting people. Also, on the night of the 31st, red-hot Mars shifts into Aries, powering up your prestigious tenth house until Valentine’s Day. Your mind will be on some pretty ambitious goals come midnight. Surround yourself with movers and the shakers who won’t mind bantering about big ideas while you’re resting between dance-offs.
Early on the 31st, curate your outfit and set up your party prep station. Then settle down for a long disco nap. The Leo party animal will be in hibernation until the evening, which could mislead you to believe that a low key celebration would be best this NYE. But when live wire Mars plugs into Aries at 9:20PM ET, you will wake from that daze, ready to swing from the chandeliers. Of course, said lighting fixture might be the one installed in your friend’s living room instead of some overpriced and crowded club. With the Scorpio moon nestled in your domestic zone, letting loose at a wild house party could the perfect way to usher in 2019. If you’re looking for a more intimate start to your celebrations, center your gathering around a lavish meal. Take the pressure off of yourself to host some fancy dinner party, and instead, enlist your epicurean pals to help prepare the feast as part of the fun. Traveling? Blow off the tourist scene and find out where the locals are ringing it in!
While there’s no holding you back from a lively celebration, two is the magic number for you this New Year’s Eve. Plan accordingly, Virgo, so you can get the best of all worlds. Schedule a couple “breakout sessions” throughout the day to give the most magical people in your universe your undivided attention. Brunch with your BFF, a pre-hair-and-makeup romp with bae, a happy hour champagne toast with mom? Make it happen. You’ll be buzzing from all the bonding time, and ready to ring things in by sundown. The Sun’s position in Capricorn and your glamorous romantic fifth house always makes NYE a high point of your year. And with the Scorpio moon lighting your locally grown third house, a favorite neighborhood venue could be the perfect place to raise a toast. If you’re traveling, find out where the locals love to party and charm your way onto the VIP list. Shortly before the ball drops, lusty Mars dips into Aries and your ultra-sexy eighth house, intensifying your powers of attraction. A “random” midnight kiss could be the launch pad for a deeper relationship in 2019!
Party at Maison du Libra? With the Capricorn Sun shimmering in your domestic sphere, an elegant affair at yours could be a fun and highly Instagrammable way to ring in 2019. With the Scorpio moon shimmering in your decadent second house, you’d be just as happy letting someone else do the cooking an entertaining. But wherever you plant your mirrorball heels, make sure you’re surrounded by beauty—from the people to the plating. Throughout the day, you could find yourself in the role of planner and organizer, but try not to take on TOO many of the practicalities. You need to be in the moment, not constantly texting about missed Lyft rides and will-call tickets. Pop all the details onto an invite app and send friends the link, so you only have to update in one place. Shortly before the confetti rains down, sex-god Mars zooms into Aries and your relationship house. A midnight kiss could be exothermic, but don’t get hung up on finding The One at 11:59PM. You have until Valentine’s Day to enjoy these lusty (but commitment-friendly!) vibes. If you’re celebrating with your S.O. sneak away for some “just the two of us” moments. One warning: With feisty Mars in the mix, don’t let your temper get the best of you tonight!
While there’s the basically zero likelihood that you’ll be watching the ball drop on the flatscreen, this might NOT be the NYE that sees you dancing on the bar until sunrise. And that’s fine, Scorpio! After a wild and eventful 2018 hosting untamed Jupiter in your sign (from October 10, 2017 to November 8, 2018 to be exact), you wouldn’t mind resting your glitter boots on more solid ground. But here’s the thing: the moon and vivacious Venus are mingling in Scorpio, which means you owe it to yourself to do something entertaining! (By YOUR definition.) That might even happen earlier in the day, while bawdy Mars takes its last steps of a six-week sashay down the catwalk of Pisces and your fierce, flamboyant fifth house. Make an event out of getting ready for the main fete, including #BTS pics and stories. At 9:20PM ET, the red planet settles down in Aries and your salubrious sixth house, which could put you in a more serious groove for the rest of the night. A ceremony—perhaps with a ritual and meditation—could launch the new year in the high vibe headspace you’ll be craving. That’s not to say you won’t hit the dance floor after your vibrational sound healing savasana. But when the clock strikes midnight, try double-fisting with bubbly and bubble water to keep your wits about you.
By all means, Sagittarius, squeeze in some cozy lounge time this New Year’s Eve. The moon and hedonistic Venus are mingling in your dreamy twelfth house, which will make it harder to trade the fleece for the formalwear. And until the evening, motivator Mars is taking its final snooze in your domestic zone, wrapping up a six-week spell. But at 9:20PM ET, gears shift dramatically, when Mars ignites a six-week fiesta in Aries and your flamboyant, romantic fifth house. When it comes to evening plans, your motto could be “better late than never.” So what if you cook a massive early dinner, fall into a food coma and nap until 9PM? Your no-fuss sign is a master of spontaneous styling, and you’ll get party-ready at record speed. To avoid keeping the rest of your squad waiting, DO lay out a festive outfit early in the day. Sequins, glitter, face paint, dancing shoes—even a costume, if you can rope your friends into a theme—are de riguer with Mars heating things up in this theatrical position. When it comes to romance, you’re pure fire tonight, Archer! Apply the lip gloss liberally and stay puckered up for multiple midnight kisses! Attached? You’ll be an unrepentant flirt, but to avoid drama, don’t cross any bright lines.
Double-rainbow! New Year’s Eve coincides with Capricorn season, giving you twice the motivation to turn to a fresh page and totally cut loose. It’s not every day that your industrious sign pauses from the grind to party like it was 1999 all over again. But with the moon and convivial Venus synced up in your “the more, the merrier eleventh house,” find your way to an epic bash and elbow your way to the center of the dance floor. (Or, charm your way to the DJ booth or VIP section.) There is one twist, however. At 9:20PM ET, flamboyant Mars exits Pisces and your ultra-social third house and hunkers down in Aries and your domestic fourth until February 14. If you have designs on hosting a shindig at the Capricorn Palace, it could be legendary. But don’t saddle yourself with extra work. It might be just as cost-effective to hire a private chef for the evening (and yes, you can pool funds with friends to cover this) instead of getting price gauged at an trendy restaurant. Even if you have tickets for a glamorous night out, don’t force yourself to break dawn. Shortly after the confetti rains down, you might be like, “After party at my place!” Keep some bubbly chilling and the fancy snacks in the fridge—and maybe some extra pillows and blankets handy for friends who want to crash on your couch. Slumber partyyyyyyy!
No, Aquarius, you probably won’t feel super motivated to make any major plans this NYE, but failing to secure some sort of entertainment could bring regrets. A couple hours before the ball drops, effervescent Mars wraps a six-week tour through your sleepy twelfth house and rushes into Aries and your ultra-social third house That means you’ll kick off 2019 feeling totally in your lively, outgoing element. No worries if all the $200 tickets to the buzziest events are sold out. You’ll be just as happy ringing in the New Year at a dive bar or friend’s house party—or maybe lighting a bonfire on a remote beach. It’s all about having great company; people who can be intermittently silly and existential. You might be so caught up in the moment that you forget your midnight kiss. But would you settle for a sunrise smooch after staying up talking all night? With your ambitious tenth house lit by the Scorpio moon, you could even make a career connection while standing in a pile of confetti.
Get the NYE party started as early as possible, Pisces, because until 9:20PM ET, energizer Mars will be enjoying the last hours of its six-week rager in your sign—a visit that only happens every two years. Chill the bubbly (or sparkling cider) early and sip it for brunch, while you’re in hair and makeup, and prepping for your big night out. And while you’ll be feeling flamboyant early in the day, reach for velvet over sequins, and skip the Drag Race lashes and lieu of a more natural look. When Mars decamps to Aries tonight, your elegant second house will be lit, and that might require you to quickly level up your plans. Don’t freak out about this last minute upgrade. Maybe you can snag someone’s canceled table reservation or buy their show tickets on Craigslist. With the Scorpio moon beaming into your travel zone, you might just let spontaneity be your guide. Wander through a city center and charm the security guards into letting you in. Pack a bag and head to the airport to fete 2019 with your far-flung friends! Can’t get away? Find a venue that’s a Lyft ride away where you can mingle multiculturally at midnight and beyond.
