Are you at a loss for what to do on New Year’s Eve? Read on to find out how to ring in the New Year in perfect harmony with your astrological sign!
Sitting at home surrounded by a few close people is no way to usher in the New Year for such a gregarious sign as yours, oh Ram! Throw a major house party and invite all your friends -- and all of their friends, too. This would also be the perfect opportunity to ask around all your casual acquaintances so you can forge new and stronger bonds of friendship for the New Year.
You are a creature of habit, and that includes your plans for all the major holidays. Any New Year’s traditions from the past will probably suit you just as well for seeing in 2014. For you, the best New Year’s Eve festivities most likely stick close to your usual routine: seeing your good friends and family in your local pub or at home.
Why limit yourself to one plan? You are an energetic sign that loves new faces and new scenes. There is no reason you can’t check out multiple parties, pubs and venues. Be spontaneous; you may meet people walking down the sidewalk who would make the perfect companions for the evening, as well as open you up to new socializing vistas.
You will be happiest celebrating New Year’s at home surrounded by your loved ones. The idea of dealing with crowds, noise and cold just seems so alienating, when all the love you need is found in your own backyard. Ring in midnight with a group hug with those who really matter in your heart.
You will want to go out somewhere you can dress up and live the highlife for the evening. Hanging out in Times Square in a parka is as off-putting to you as chilling on the sofa with a few close friends. Put on your dancing shoes and get to a party or upscale venue that offers the perfect combination of lively company in a room where there is also space to breathe, move -- and most importantly -- be seen.
You prefer a slightly more civilized New Year's Eve. Being in a rowdy bar with inebriated people will only fill you with despair. You enjoy controlled settings, such as a house party or organized bash. That doesn’t mean things can’t get crazy, it just means that it never degenerates into the chaos that comes from being surrounded by disparate groups of people. Also important: a venue with nice, clean bathrooms.
You love to party and socialize, but you also love to talk, so avoid clubs where the music is so loud you have to shout to be heard. A festive bar where you have the chance to dance and meet new people, as well as sit down around a table with good company and conversation, is the perfect New Year’s scene for you.
If you want a decent New Year’s, you're going to have to organize everything yourself. You'll be happy doing just about anything as long as you make all the decisions: plan the guest list, choose the location and have your entire entourage follow you blindly. Being a Scorpio, you love hunting for a bargain, so find an inexpensive neighborhood bar, or entertain at home with beer bought on sale.
You love adventure and travel, so, if you can, take off to Thailand or Bali for an unforgettable, exotic New Year. If you're on a budget, spend the evening in a locale that offers different vistas from your own ethnic background. Spend New Year’s dancing salsa, singing at a Karaoke bar or Texas line dancing.
Like all else, your New Year’s Eve plans should confer a certain status on you. Go to a Gala event with society’s upper crust or a charity benefit with the well-to-do. A dinner out hobnobbing with other movers and shakers at the most exclusive restaurant in the area would also set the perfect tone for the New Year.
No matter what plans you make, you'll probably change your mind at the last minute. It’s probably better to be a free agent than start the New Year off on a bad foot by flaking out on friends. Be spontaneous; call around to your various acquaintances or check out your Facebook feed at 7 pm on New Year's Eve and see what’s up. If you are in a couple, let your Significant Other make the plans; that way, you can just enjoy the ride without having to do all that pesky scheduling.
Whether single or in a couple, a romantic, fairytale setting is the perfect way for you to ring in the New Year. Choose a venue that will make you feel like a storybook princess or prince charming. A cozy, beautifully decorated environment will help transport you from the everyday world and into a landscape of greater possibilities for 2014. This could be your very own starlit living room, with just your sweetie or close friends at hand, or a venue with a big band that makes you feel like you are in a 1940s Hollywood movie.
