The Zodiac and New Year's Eve Dinner

Disclaimer: with astrology, it is possible to decipher our behaviour or to get a glimpse of the future. This is a theory which cannot be systematically tested. On the other hand, one may wish to follow an easier path, which puts into practice the principles listed in astrology textbooks. In a way, this is precisely the type of practical exercises that we suggest in this Lifestyle column.

We recommend that you follow our advice with both a light and observing mind. Beyond entertainment, the aim is to understand how each of us behaves in various fields; thus, we can better define and fathom, by deduction, how we have developed our natal predispositions. In addition, why wouldn't we be able to guess the talent(s) which we could harness in the future, according to our astrological profile.

The following information is given for signs in their purest form. Depending on the case, it is advisable that you check your planetary dominant or the sign of your Ascendant, the position, quality and aspects of the significators of the area involved, and if applicable, the position of the planets associated with it. For instance, for family affairs, examine the 4th House and its ruler, as well the Moon; for romance, examine the 5th House and its ruler, as well as Venus, etc.

The large number of books we have read, and more particularly, the experience we have drawn from the study of thousands of charts, urge us to be cautious. However, we thought that it may be interesting to provide a few concrete indications, which will turn out to be accurate, quite often.

Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

What interests you in the concept of New Year is that of a fresh start. This is what you just adore. In a corner of your mind, you have reviewed the projects you will launch. But all this remains very impulsive of course, because you are not the type of person who draws up a list... With such a state of mind, you are quite flexible as far as festivities are concerned. You are keen on putting forward new ideas, and since they are often breathtaking, people heed your advice. For instance, you are quite tempted by anything full of activity, be it a funfair or the biggest party thrown in town: you will be hanging around there. You are spontaneous, and you might as well be able to jump in a plane at the last minute, or to land without warning where the wind takes you to. You let other people – there are quite a few – take care of the organisation of the evening in each and every detail. You choose your outfit in the blink of an eye: for women, a red dress to go dancing, for men, a pair of all-purpose blue jeans. And off you go, till the end of the night.

New Year\'s Eve Dinner for Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

You will find on Astrotheme thousands of natal charts of celebrities who have the Sun in Aries, Aries rising, or Mars dominant. The former are sorted in popularity order, whereas the latter are sorted according to the strongest dominant. Since each planet also rules a House – sometimes two houses – you may want to also look at charts having a strong 1st House.

Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

Oh, oysters in aspic, scallop Carpaccios with citrus fruits, quails roasted with quince... Above all, you believe that recipes ought to be dressed to the nines. It is out of the question to have a buffet with ready-made potato chips and salads. How horrific! Everyone knows that in your view, the major feature is a nice menu, of course. However, you do not look down on the accompanying rituals, starting with your outfit, elegant but comfortable, and you grasp this opportunity to wear beautiful fabrics such as silk or cashmere. Ideally, you gather with people who are always in a good mood. Spoilsports better steer clear of you! Although appetite plays the key role, you also want to dance and sing. It could take place in the countryside, in a beautiful abode where the lights of the party will shine far in the December night, with frosted stars on the windows, candles, and why not, a bright log fire in the hearth. At midnight, you enjoy Champagne bubbles as much as hugs and kisses. You will probably not be the last one to slip into a cosy bed to give the year a good start.

Gemini, Gemini rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 3rd House

The dinner? What dinner? Or more precisely, what party should you choose among the multitude of possibilities offered to you? One which requires no effort, of course. Connected with scores of friends and social networks, more than ever, you get itchy feet, and you would like to be in several locations at the same time. What you would enjoy would be for instance to visit a big city like London, with shops that do not close, and with a myriad of places where to have fun at night. You will not look down on parties organised in your neighbourhood either, provided you can hop quickly from one to another, so as not to miss anything. To feel at ease, you wear a comfortable outfit: sneakers or ankle boots, to stay fit until the end of the night. One can rely on you to parody the caterpillar's dance, to steal kisses under the mistletoe, or to throw crackers and confetti with no restraint. Obviously, even though you are not the easiest diner to look after, you are probably the best one to liven things up. Besides, should there be a need for someone to attend to the soundtrack, you are the first person readily available.

Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

The New Year? You consider this event with caution and nostalgia. Firstly, no one knows whether it will be better than the last ones. Nothing can prove it. You also keep sweet memories of the best moments of past New Year celebrations. The year when you were alone with your sweetheart in a snow-covered chalet. Or the day when you celebrated a special event, such as for example a pregnancy or a move to a new home. In short, this time of the year relates to personal topics. Therefore, it is out of the question to brave the cold weather, which you loathe, and to find yourself in the middle of a hysterical crowd, with cars horning, and inebriated anonymous people. How horrific! Nevertheless, New Year's Eve is much more than that, of course. You ought to find a way to experience the transition smoothly, preferably around a nice family dinner table. Do not hesitate to play the commemoration card, for instance in your childhood house. It is the golden opportunity to live through past events again, while gazing at the mists outside.

Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

The best party for starting 2014 ? The party that you will attend, naturally. Indeed, even during this busy season, you manage to be informed of the events that must not be overlooked. Therefore, you choose the most prestigious restaurant displaying an unaffordable menu, of course. If possible, you fancy yourself riding in a horse-drawn carriage or in a limousine, it depends, to get there, so as to turn heads. Even at a more modest level – if you are forced to – you spare no gilded decorations, sequins, make-up, and nice car. It is the best opportunity to run the show, isn't it? The best moment of the evening is when you make your entrance. Since this is the crucial time, you must not mess up the glamorous image you want to project. Avoid getting lost in the crowd, where your efforts will go unnoticed, your gorgeous clothes, creased, and your feet, trampled. If you want to go out, choose a posh place such as Deauville or a ritzy mountain resort like Megève or Courchevel. Lastly, it is certain that you will enjoy watching pyrotechnical prowesses.

Because you are conscious of the rhythm of the passing of time, you have already calculated the number of days left before the New Year, before the countdown to midnight... And your resolutions list has been ready for a long time. In order to celebrate this moment in style and with a free mind, you have also carefully settled all your administrative chores. You are most unlikely to be seen, the first working day, uncombed, queuing up at some administration counter. Your friends do know this, and they expect a few wise festive proposals from you. Depending on who attends, where, and how, you have already submitted your suggestions through a series of telephone calls. You prefer to keep out of the prevailing madness, if possible in good company. Besides, it is out of the question to blow up your budget with unnecessary gadgets or decorations. New Year's Eve ought to be synonymous with exchange, sharing, and why not, solidarity. Lastly, as usual, you will find the good outfit, perfectly spruce and sober, but exactly meant for the event.

Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

Your heart wavers between several invitations. Indeed, the socialite or the flippant person lying in you tends to wake up at this period of the year. At long last, it is the time to forget your little daily worries and to participate in a collective event. A real city-dweller, you enjoy going to see shows, for the occasion. A light comedy, a ballet, or even, if you can, the great ball in Vienna, of course. In dinner suit or in evening gown, with patent leather shoes or stiletto heels, furs and diamonds, you secretly relish this all too rare occasion, according to you, to devote yourself to the art of showing-off. However, you are not satisfied with image alone. You are very reliable for gathering up your friends, preparing all sorts of sweet little things, and thoughtfully tackle the greeting cards chore. You even enjoy selecting the most sophisticated ones, and you find warm personal lines for everyone. This general momentum, which stirs you because it recalls memories and arouses hopes, would not be perfect without Champagne, definitely. So... let it bubble!

Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

To please your, New Year's Eve must bring about a different experience. Although at this period, you do not agree when some people become superficial or insouciant, you have nothing against the symbolism consisting in burying the year gone by. Actually, this is your approach of the event. You sort out things in a quite uncompromising manner, and you get rid, like a dead skin, of whatever has been unpleasant. One can count on you for this often radical elimination process! A little bit like at Halloween, you play the magical connexion game: it is in a slightly mysterious attire, taking the role of the dark attractive stranger which you wish to be. A murder party in the Brocéliande wood for instance, seems designed for you. Even if it means frightening the revellers! To maintain a demonic reputation, you do not hesitate to practice provocation, according to your means or your desires. For example, you may drink to excess – however, better refrain from driving a car afterwards – or you may utter enigmatic proverbs or predictions. And why not, astrological ones?

Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

Let the party begin! For the most sociable people, New Year's Eve is only an additional pretext for having a good time with friends and family members. You do not want to leave anybody aside, and you are also very much sought-after, for you always exude cheerfulness, and you appreciate festive menus. Furthermore, the pleasure of gourmet food is as important as that of dance and music. People know that you throw memorable parties because you think on a big scale. Your cellar contains exclusive bottles and abounds with cases of Champagne. Your table is well garnished. However, since you are gripped by wanderlust, you ought to change the way you will celebrate this New Year. You may get a plane ticket at the last minute and walk into 2014 at the other end of the world. Or even better, to achieve a sheer Sagittarius' dream, you may experience several New Year's Eves! Failing that, you never forget your innumerable friends living around the world, and you always keep an eye on the TV set in order to know how revellers enjoy themselves in Sydney, Moscow, Beijing, or Rio.

Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

Although you do not resent the passing of time, you see no particular reason to mark the coming of the New Year. "And you really believe that life is going to change just because a figure is added to the counter?" This is the type of comments that you may make with a deadpan sense of humour. It is not that you disapprove celebrations, only that you want to protect their meaning. For example to think back of the last twelve months, to ponder over the nature of the famous passing of time that cannot be stopped, and above all, to reaffirm forthcoming ambitions. But you also appreciate the presence of your loved ones, even though you do not readily tell them so. To honour the New Year as well as the people who share that moment with you, you pay special attention to your outfit. Whereas you stick to your usual soberness, you enjoy a certain degree of formalism, in the absence of glamour. As for your programme, you must only avoid large crowds.

Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

What kind of original event could mark the occasion? That is the question, according to you. Of course, since you are highly adaptable, you will not sulk if you had to content yourself spending New Year's Eve at your friends' place, even though it is improvised at the last moment and on a shoestring. Sometimes, you do not hesitate to arrive disguised, with your hair dyed in blue. Even if nothing in your look is dramatic, you are in any case determined to wildly liven things up. Tired of the turkey with chestnut stuffing, and of family rituals? If the happening is in your house, you take a wicked pleasure in inviting very disparate people and in watching what comes out of their blend. However, the ideal thing is the principle of a different New Year's Eve. In the middle of a desert, in New-York, to countdown the last minutes at Time Square, in Lapland, to sleep in a palace made of ice. You surf the Internet looking for bold plans. This year again, you will hesitate between a grotto in Ariège and a spiritual retreat, so as to collect positive energies.

Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

You are often in a grey area, not always punctual, and you fall on your feet in the New Year, which catches you with its symbolic strength. Without telling anyone, you keep abreast of the new emerging trends. The numerology for 2014, i.e. 7, the Horse of Chinese astrology, or the rites to be observed have no secret for you. To be on the safe side, you ought to get dressed with special care and not forget to take your amulets and your lucky charms. For instance, women must wear red undergarments, and it is necessary to kiss whoever you wish under the mistletoe. Since you are soft-hearted and full of compassion, you never forget the New Year gifts tradition. In short, you feel both sentimental and hopeful. You are happy to think that the very fact that you cross this threshold will enable you to put your life on the right track, and that the world will be better, as if by magic. Actually, you are quite right: it is the night during which the emerging vibrations can accompany you for a whole year at least.
