A new year is coming! So what’s the astrology for New Year’s Eve? The Moon will be in Aquarius December 31st and January 1st and not be void-of-course - woo! So we’re free and clear without the interruptions - except for Mercury retrograde, of course, so try not to focus on too big of plans with him in Capricorn. With the Moon in Aquarius, we’ll all be gathering together more, and thinking a lot about our dreams, and may be a little idealistic going into 2017. The Moon makes all positive aspects December 31st and January 1st, helping keep the energy positive, and Mars conjuncts (aligns with) Neptune at 1:53AM ET, increasing our imaginations, making us more compassionate and sensitive, and feeling a little soulful. If Mercury retrograde can stop himself from mucking things up, this can be a great New Year’s Eve!
What about for each sign? Read on:
Think about trying something outside of your comfort zone. Try doing something different than you’d normally do to ring in the new year. Or surround yourself with friends and enjoy the party!
You can focus on the resolutions you want to work on for 2017, so think about your long-term plans as we head into 2017. You may prefer to spend the night in a quiet place, and not around any loud kids.
If you can go somewhere you haven’t gone before, you may like that best to ring in the new year. You can feel a little bold and adventurous, so think about taking advantage of opportunities to do so.
You may be a little down going into the new year, so try to do something to pick up your mood a little bit, and don’t let yourself get stuck in a bad mood. You may prefer staying away from too many people.
Try not to spend this New Year’s Eve alone. You may find you prefer being around people, though you don’t need a big crowd. A few people you care about and enjoy spending time with will do.
You may be tempted to spend New Year’s Eve getting last-minute work and tasks done, so try to put that aside and mark the new year. You can be most helpful with the host of a party, if you attend one.
This can be a great New Year’s Eve for a party, so try not to be alone and get out. Let loose and don’t focus on anything really serious. Let yourself have fun and be around fun people.
You may want to spend this New Year’s Eve at home or in a homey place, or with family or the people you’re most comfortable with. Be comfortable, snuggle up, and grab some ice cream.
You can enjoy being around other people for the mental stimulation this New Year’s Eve, so you can be sociable and appreciate going out. Be around lots of different people you find interesting.
This can be a good New Year’s Eve to splurge a little, especially with all of the wonky energy you’ve been dealing with lately. Go to a nice restaurant, have some rich foods, and treat yourself well.
With the Moon in your sign, you can do whatever you want this New Year’s Eve, so ask yourself what it is you really want to do. No matter what you do, you may find yourself the center of attention.
You may be the one falling asleep before 2017 actually gets here! So it might be best to spend New Year’s Eve somewhere you can crash if you need to. Avoid the crowds and have some quiet.
