Aries is the outgoing party animal of the zodiac, so it's no surprise you're looking to get out of the house on Dec. 31. But you have a lot of friends you're looking to impress, which makes a night out at the club the perfect choice. From dancing the night away courtesy of the DJ's tunes to popping bottles of champagne, there's nothing like ringing in the new year at the trendiest spot in town.

You know the social butterfly of the zodiac isn't staying in on New Year's. As the ringleader of your friend group, you're likely in charge of planning the festivities, and might we recommend a karaoke night where you can embrace your goofy side? Share the idea with your pals in your group text so they can start planning what song they'll sing (even though we all know you're going to steal the show, Gemini).

Cancer is the sweet and sentimental homebody of the zodiac. You prefer a quiet night in with friends and family over a big night out with tons of people. So, this New Year's Eve, try hosting a small but intimate house party for you and your loved ones. A potluck-style dinner is a great way to show off your hosting skills while enjoying good food and even better company.

Leos are known for being the outgoing charmers of the zodiac. Your over-the-top personality lights up any room you enter, so it makes sense that you'd want to be right where the action is on New Year's Eve. Going outside to watch the fireworks not only matches your vibrant energy, but it'll make the perfect backdrop for your #NYESquad selfie.

Virgos are the perfectionists of the zodiac, which means nobody throws a bash like you do. From the decorations to the playlist to the guest list, no detail is too small to escape your eye. That's why only you could pull off an extravagant theme party. All your guests will have an amazing time, but for you, the real fun is in planning the ultimate end-of-year celebration.

Sagittarians are the world explorers of the zodiac. You have a restless side, which means you never know when the travel bug might bite. And being that you probably have some downtime around New Year's Eve, it might be time to pack up the car and take that last-minute road trip you've been dreaming about. Whether you're hitting up a bit city for nightlife or an outdoorsy area for hiking, you'll love nothing more than ringing in the new year somewhere new.

Capricorn: Have a game night

Capricorns are always working and hustling to get things done. You often find it difficult to slow down and enjoy the fruits of your labor. So, when you get some days off for the holidays, you prefer to stay in and spend time with your friends and family. Board game night at your place is the perfect mix of festive fun and casual vibes that you can get behind. Plus, it gives you a chance to show off your trivia skills!

Some people like to party on New Year's Eve, while others prefer to stay in. Sentimental Pisces is definitely in the latter group, so the ideal night for you is relaxing on the couch and watching the ball drop on TV. Snuggle up with your special someone or a few close friends, make your favorite snacks, and allow yourself to daydream about all the possibilities of the new year ahead.
