We’ve always looked to the stars for navigation, to help us traverse the planet and guide us towards our destinies. Our horoscopes can advise us in life, love, at work and at play! Whether you’re planning a special occasion for yourself, a friend or loved one, let us be your guide to the stars and what they reveal about your ideal celebration. Even if you’re an unbeliever, here are some undeniably divine party ideas for all the signs of the zodiac.
Aries – The Ram
Fire Sign (March 21 – April 20)
Aries sure does love a challenge. They take life by the horns and live it to the full. Bold, brave and impulsive, an Aries thrives on adventure. They’re not overly detail-oriented, but this doesn’t stop them as they are blessed with steely determination.
They best way for an Aries to get down is to get that adrenaline pumping. Anything involving some action and adventure would suit them best, whether that’s Skydiving out of a plane or racing a Go Kart or a Quad Bike to engage their competitive spirit.
Taurus – The Bull
Earth Sign (April 21 – May 21)
Everyone likes a bit of pampering now and then, but for Taureans it’s a lifestyle, not just a treat. A Taurus is most happy when relaxing or somewhere serene. They enjoy both simple and extravagant pleasures. And who’s to say they don’t deserve it? With their diligent work ethic and resilience, they more than earn their keep.
Gemini – The Twins
Air Sign (May 22 – June 21)
With so many interests, the Gemini is easily pleased, however, with so many passions to contend with, it can mean they are sometimes hard to keep entertained. Playful and curious, Geminis aren’t shy of adding a new hobby to their inventory and they’ll adapt to whatever you throw at them.
Cancer – The Crab
Water Sign (June 22 – July 22)
Although Cancers may be slow to come out of their shells, once they do they sure love to throw a party. Nothing too hectic mind, Cancers are natural homebodies and love playing host to dinner parties.
Gentle and compassionate, you could show your appreciation for a Cancer in your life by tapping into the pride they take in their home and hostess duties. Perhaps a Cookery Class for them to hone their skills, a Bake off to let them shine, or even Flower Arranging so they’ll be able to set the perfect table centrepiece at their next do.
Leo – The Lion
Fire Sign (July 23 – August 22)
Gregarious and spirited, Leos love to be the centres of attention. Their confidence and playfulness is matched only by their bravery and inner strength, just like their mighty namesake, the lion. Knowing there is little that would put off a fearless and fun-loving Leo, there’s so many options to choose from when it comes to party ideas.
You could challenge them to prove they are king of the jungle in a competition or king of the dancefloor on a night out. Think activities like a Jeep Safari or Axe Throwing to channel their primal nature, or simply go on Bar Crawl, after all – you can be sure your Leo will bring the party.
Virgo – The Maiden
Earth Sign (August 23 – September 23)
Ahh the Virtuous Virgo, always over-thinking and ever-practical. Pragmatic and methodical, it’ll be a surprise if you end up with the organisational duties for a Virgo’s special occasion, as they are unlikely to hand over the reins. However, appeal to their kind, empathetic nature and assure them you’ve got this in hand.
If you’re one yourself, you’ve probably mapped out all your ideas onto a spreadsheet with pros and cons, however, for others, keep in mind activities that test a Virgo’s critical faculties. How about an Escape Room? Or a Treasure Hunt? Perhaps a Gin Masterclass where they can learn about this beloved tipple and put their scientific methods to the test while they try to create the perfect cocktail?
Libra – The Scales
Air Sign (September 24 – October 23)
Represented by scales, Librans love balance and harmony, and this extends into their appreciation of aesthetics and art. Ruled by the planet Venus, named after the Roman goddess of beauty, Librans are magpies for attractive ornaments and surroundings.
Just like with a Taurus, you wouldn’t find this star sign turning down an invite to some beauty treatments at a Spa Day, but why not take this a step further by treating a beloved Libran to a glamourous professional Makeover? If your Libran already has their makeup look on point, they might instead want to take in some beautiful sights; how about a trip to an art gallery or Afternoon Tea Bus Tour where you can feast your eyes on city attractions all the while enjoying some gorgeous pastries.
Scorpio – The Scorpion
Water Sign (October 24 – November 22)
Scorpios are known for their passionate and fiery nature, despite being a water sign. They’re emotionally intuitive and cunning when it comes to strategy. Another key characteristic is an innate curiosity for life, and being gutsy, they don’t shy away from anything.
If you’re planning an event for a Scorpio, you want to make sure you get it right to avoid their sting. How about something like an Escape Room to challenge their strategy skills? Or see if you can avoid getting struck by their pointy end in a Stage Fighting experience!
Sagittarius – The Archer / Centaur
Fire Sign (November 23 – December 21)
Sagittarius, the natural explorer – this star sign is known for an enduring wanderlust. And their adventurous spirit extends to all worldly realms, including a perpetual quest for knowledge.
The only prerequisite for a Sagittarian’s party is adventure and originality – no pressure then! May we suggest something abroad where they haven’t been before? That way your can rely on your destination to deliver the out-of-the-ordinary. See if your city of choice offers a tour where you can take in the sights or try an unusual activity. For something closer to home, being natural archers, you could test their aim at Archery or Clay Pigeon Shooting.
Capricorn – The Goat
Earth Sign (December 22 – January 20)
As with other Earth signs, the Capricorn is characteristically grounded and disciplined. They approach all tasks with focus and optimism. Think of fellow Capricorn Michelle Obama, is there anything that brilliant woman can’t do! That’s rhetorical, obviously – the answer is a resounding ‘no’.
So, how can you best celebrate a Capricorn’s mental strength, their perseverance and their aptitude for a challenge? We would suggest games and competitions where there’s an overall winner, or team sports that require strategy. And to test a Capricorn’s unfaltering endurance skills, how about an Assault Course?
Aquarius – The Water-bearer
Air Sign (January 21 – February 19)
The original eco-warriors, Aquarius are said to be the most humanitarian of all the star signs. They are big thinkers, concerned with all matters of the world: environmental, social and philosophical. Aquarians and effortlessly authentic, unconcerned with conforming themselves to the expectations of others.
This poses a challenge then, when trying to design the perfect celebration for a star sign that’s uniquely, er, unique… While bearing in mind that every Aquarian will be different, you could go for an activity that allows them to engage in some contemplative study. Maybe a trip to a museum or a spot of yoga, or how about an examination of the human figure in a Nude Life Drawing Class.
Pisces – The Fish
Water Sign (February 20 – March 20)
Sensitive souls, those Pisceans. They’re as in touch with their emotions as they are of yours. And with that level of awareness comes a natural desire for escapism, whether that’s on the dancefloor or nose-deep in a good book. Ruled by Neptune, god of the sea, and symbolised by fish, this Water sign likes nothing more than to go with the flow of the stream.
Anything involving Music and Dance would suit these natural movers. Or why not treat these water-babies to a Party Boat Cruise, where they can let loose on the dancing deck while enjoying the freedom of being starboard?
Of course, we readily admit that EVERYONE is unique, not just Aquarius signs. You may defy the heavens, you may be a lone star, or you may be a range of traits from each of the stars, forming your own special constellation. We hope this guide can help you find some fun ideas to please yourself and your buddies.
