The holidays are looming, and, whether you are joyfully anticipating them, or can’t wait for them to be over, there is often an element of stress involved. You can enjoy the holidays a lot more if you take into account your zodiac sign. Instead of fighting your natural tendencies, choose to go with them – after all, it’s your holiday too.
How to Enjoy the Holidays
Aries March 21 – April 19
An active, exciting holiday will suit you, Aries. You feel hemmed in sitting around trying to be pleased about receiving yet another pair of hand knitted socks – don’t knock them though, they are lovely. So tuck your tootsies into their warm knitty goodness, don your walking shoes and get outside. If you live near hills and mountains you will be in your element. Aries needs freedom and fresh air, so get plenty of both and you’ll feel at your best ready to celebrate with the rest. Go climbing.
Taurus April 20 – May 20
Taurus loves the holidays. He or she enjoys the opportunity to revel in a little self-indulgence. The best food, one or two luxury items under the Christmas tree and a gentle promenade along main street after lunch are your perfect holiday elements. Wrapped in your cashmere scarf and wearing your beautiful new boots, meeting and greeting is your thing. There’s no denying, you are impressive. Go sashay.
Gemini May 21 – June 20
Company is your thing, Gemini. You love to shine, so anywhere you can interact, exchange views and debate with new people will make you happy. You might consider a cruise or a cozy, but lively, mountain retreat. Traditional, family obligations are not your thing and being forced into them makes you irritable. Should you be forced to endure your worst nightmare, single out the most intelligent-looking person and engage them in a friendly debate. Or how about organizing a game of bridge? Enjoy the holidays. Go party.
Cancer June 21 – July 22
Being at home, surrounded by family is your idea of heaven. Gather them round, make it a beautiful celebration with the ones you love. Their expectation that you will put on a good spread is high, but you’re up to it. You can make this the best holiday ever and, by the way, your home looks really beautiful this year. Plenty of time to snuggle down and read your new book later. Go entertain.
Leo July 23 – August 22
Stay at home? No way! It’s party time, Leo, get your glad rags on. Put on the sparkle and wow your admiring audience. It’s you they want to see. Seek out a celebrity gathering and be assured that you are the star of the show. If you are stuck at home, then hopefully you have received that hi-tech, top-of-the-range gift you really wanted. Go strut your stuff.
Virgo August 23 – September 22
You’ve been making paper snowflakes for weeks. Your handmade gifts are perfectly wrapped and ready to be distributed to those you love the most. It’s time to allow yourself to relax and enjoy the fun. You really don’t know how much you are appreciated – let your family show you. Give hugs, get hugs. Go dance.
Libra September 23 – October 22
You’re not the sportiest type, Libra. Nevertheless you enjoy being outdoors and observing the beauty of nature. Your holiday excursion may have to be solitary, while your family carouse indoors. Enjoy the peace and tranquility, and take the opportunity to, you know… check in with yourself. Hug a tree. Or a Labrador. Go get yourself in balance.
Scorpio October 23 – November 21
Dark and daring Scorpio likes nothing better than to revisit childhood during the holidays. While the evenings beckon you out to nightclubs and select parties, your daytimes are spent kicking up the snow, building snowmen until your fingers turn blue and exclaiming over nostalgic reruns on TV. Now it’s time to transform yourself for the evening’s entertainment – black and crimson will suit you wonderfully. Go play.
Sagittarius November 22 – December 21
Oh what to choose? Do you want secluded and cozy? Do you want hard partying? A mix of both would suit you admirably, Sagittarius. You need your adventurous spirit sated and your love of tradition to be met. If you can’t do it this year think about organizing a family adventure next year. A small hotel with log fires and good outdoor facilities would do fine. Go explore.
Capricorn December 22 – January 19
It’s your time of year, Capricorn. This is when you feel close to the real you. You can take on any challenge – from organizing the family reunion, to being on your own. You can cook dinner for 12 or you can trudge for miles through the slush with your dog. It doesn’t matter, you can cope with anything. Happy birthday. Go be yourself.
Aquarius January 20 – February 18
It might seem like a good idea to bring all your friends and family together, but don’t be surprised if there are frictions. Your intentions are good and people know that. Try to rise above the pettiness and just have a great time. Don’t let them get you down and don’t join in the squabbles. Get away, take a walk with someone who understands, or a very long bubble bath with a glass of bubbly. Go soothe yourself.
Pisces February 19 – March 20
You probably don’t want to go out in this weather, do you, Pisces? So don’t force yourself unless it is the shortest of excursions. Stay home, put on your most outrageous knitwear, your reindeer slippers, slip into your favorite armchair and immerse yourself in music, food and books. You know that’s what you want to do. Go snooze.
We hope you all have a wonderful holiday, however you choose to spend it.
