When it comes to hosting parties, everyone has their own style. Some people are more fixated on having a big blowout and spend a ton of money and time curating an atmosphere. Some spend hours, even days, in the kitchen trying to prepare the perfect food options. Some go out of their way to spend quality time with all their guests, while others may float around and make sure everything is running smoothly.
Our zodiac signs can influence our personalities, and in turn can give us some insight as to how we might approach certain situations. Check out your zodiac sign below to find out how you handle being the host of a party!
Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)
An Aquarius is not as concerned with planning events and prefers get-togethers to feel like a group hangout session. They usually only invite a few people over so that the focus can be more on conversation than activities. They will get so caught up in their latest discussion on political uprisings that they may forget to plan something for dinner. Still, they will come through ordering food in so that no one is distracted or inconvenienced.
Pisces (February 19 to March 20)
The party will likely be at an unusual time, and in an unordinary space. Pisces want to be an exciting and interesting host. Yet they want to cater to everyone, which makes the party a bit haphazard. If there is some sort of theme, it will be very open to interpretation as to allow everyone's creativity to shine through (and give them more to work with). Despite the chaos, they will continuously check-in to make sure everyone is feeling okay, and that they have everything they need. No one leaves a Pisces party without feeling affirmed and taken care of on a personal level.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
Aries is high energy and won't let the party crash. They're someone who knows how to bring life to the party but doesn't precisely fixate on the details enough to plan one. They're the ones who decided to throw together a shindig at the last minute but will be able to pull a crowd in nonetheless. They like to make bold statements, so they likely will try to throw the party at a fancy location with lots of decor.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
Taureans are known to plan really formal evenings, but never flashy or gaudy. They have a set menu, and they don't invite too many people due to their picky nature. They've been planning this for months, and if you showed up without confirming (or bring an extra guest), you've likely thrown their whole evening into chaos. Either way, they will still be a charming host and take care of any details that their guests might need.
Gemini (May 21 to June 20)
They have a bit of everything going on and are very flexible. Geminis are most likely to have a buffet or order food from multiple locations to have something for everyone. It's difficult for them to focus on just one person—they're buzzing around talking to as many people as they can. They probably intended for their party to be a basic get together with their friends, but after texting their entire contact list, they realize that they are friends with everyone. Whoops!
Cancer (June 21 to July 22)
Cancers go out of their way to cook comforting meals and make sure no one is left out. They've invited every person they feel connected to; for a Cancer, that means their entire family, their best friends, that guy they dated for three years in high school, and any guests they want to bring along. Cancers fixate more on the menu than anything else, and they likely spend several days before planning and cooking up a storm. They insist on doing everything themselves and won't ask for help, because their goal is for everyone to leave with a full stomach and a full heart.
Leo (July 23 to August 22)
Leos go above and beyond to throw the best party around; they have a reputation to uphold, after all. Though they aren't afraid to invite people, they likely won't have to. If a Leo is throwing a party, then everyone wants to be there! They aren't stingy on decorations, and they will dress their absolute best (and expect guests to follow suit). They are constantly taking pictures, they probably have a hashtag prepared that they encourage everyone to use on social media throughout the evening.
Virgo (August 23 to September 22)
They've been planning this party for weeks, maybe months. You likely received a printed invitation in the mail with all the information well ahead of time. They've carefully curated a guest list, catered the meal, and picked the perfect location. They already have a perfectly laid out plan, and they have backup plans in case the first plan goes awry. They usually spend more time organizing the party and ensuring it's running smoothly than actually enjoying the party, but as long as their guests leave impressed and satisfied, they don't mind.
Libra (September 23 to October 22)
The social butterflies of the zodiac, they've invited everyone they know and then some. They fixate on making everything gorgeous and ensuring everyone is introduced to everyone else. They'll plan a dinner party with themes that put others to shame because this is their element. They will go all out with any aesthetic element of the party and make sure everyone is taken care of in whatever way they may need.
Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)
This isn't your average party, because a Scorpio is not your average host. They're more interested in an intimate get-together than a full-blown bash, and you can bet that they will pay attention to details. They won't go overboard on decorations, preferring instead to use dim lighting and candles to create an ambiance. They keep the guest list low because their main prerogative is to have complex and intriguing conversations. They will likely spring for more wine than actual dinner but will have some small plate-style options to snack on throughout the evening. They'll ask all sorts of personal questions but won't stick around any one guest too long. They may vanish from time to time, but anyone who knows them expects this, so no one is offended.
Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)
They likely decided to throw their party this weekend, and you'll get a text about it on Thursday afternoon. Nonetheless, they will still find a way to pull off an exotic, out-of-the-ordinary blowout. They want the party to be high energy, and like their Scorpio friends, they will likely indulge more in buying alcohol than actual dinner. They enjoy improvising, and while they may be hard to track down, they won't let people leave without saying goodbye.
Capricorn (December 22 to January 19)
Capricorns probably treat their events more like a networking situation than a party, but if they have a couple of drinks, they'll loosen up. They prefer to keep things simple: an easy to prepare yet impressive dinner, invite their favorite people over, and spend the evening catching up on what's happening in people's lives. They won't run around checking on you, but if you need something, they're more than happy to oblige. They'll stick to what they traditionally believe is expected of them when it comes to organizing and planning these events. Still, you can always count on them to be consistent.
