Deck the Halls … According to Your Sign


Finding new ways of decorating for the holidays is always stressful, so why not put some of the pressure on the stars — by using your horoscope as a guide?

Reader’s Digest consulted astrologer Guadalupe Terrones, who came up with suggestions for each sign, like:

  • Aries: Colorful candles — for the most fiery of fire signs.
  • Taurus: Fragrance diffusers — because Bulls need all their senses stimulated.
  • Gemini: Board games — because the “experience” is more important than the look alone.
  • Cancer: Old holiday photos — to make the home even homier, since it’s all about tradition.
  • Leo: Big, bold displays — bigger is always better.
  • Virgo: Fresh greenery. Earth signs enjoy the simplicity and beauty of the natural world.
  • Libra: Fine Art. This sign exudes class, so don’t look for any glow-in-the-dark Santas here.
  • Scorpio: Chocolate treats. They’re luscious, they evoke passion, and they ooze decadence.
  • Sagittarius: Tabletop displays. They’re into food, drink, and laughter, and sharing them around the table.
  • Capricorn: Twinkle lights — to seek out reminders that there’s light shining in the darkness of winter.
  • Aquarius: Homey comforts. It’s all about keeping guests happy, even if it means making personalized stockings for all.
  • Pisces: Nostalgic decor. The most sentimental of signs, Pisces will listen to old holiday music starting in November — and keep It’s a Wonderful Life on a loop.
