The Zodiac Sign That Makes the Best Host, According to Astrologers

You'll never turn down an invite at these signs' homes.

With the holidays upon us, it's time to start planning who's hosting what. You probably want to steer clear of that cousin who serves dry turkey and tells awkward stories. But you'll want an invite from the family friend who has everything from delicious hors d'oeuvres to fun games. Wondering why people make you feel so comfortable and others don't? it could have to do with their horoscope. According to astrologers, these are the zodiac signs that make the best host, from always accommodating to the most hospitable.

If you're heading to a party at an Aries' home, you can expect a "highly entertaining [event] that will go down in memory," says Rachel Clare, an astrologer at Mysticsense.

As a fire sign that's "symbolized by the forceful ram," Aries are well known for their "bold and fearless character," notes Clare. They love taking the lead on things, so they'll have no problem "commanding a room of people" and making sure every guest is comfortable.

The perfectionists of the zodiac won't leave any detail to chance. "As an organized and structured Earth sign, Virgos know exactly how to throw the most successful party," says Clare.

Expect everything down to the napkins to be meticulously planned and the itinerary to flow perfectly. However, just because this is enjoyable for the guests, doesn't mean it's always so for the host. "Their anxiousness may make hosting a less-than-favorable experience for this sign," Clare points out.

The introverted homebodies of the zodiac are not likely to host a big party with people they're not close with, but "they make the most incredible host for long-term stays," says Danny Santos, astrologer and founder of Santos & The Crystal Visions. They're considered the most nurturing sign and, therefore, will "cook an incredible meal, maintain a clean space, and find meaningful and intimate ways to connect with guests," adds Santos.

But keep in mind that this crab tends to retreat into their shell when they feel overwhelmed. Though they love taking care of others, they need more alone time than most to decompress. So, if you are a Cancer's house guest, be sure to give them their space after they've wined and dined you.

Of course, the social butterfly of the zodiac makes it on the list. "As Gemini is constantly making new friends and connections, it's one of the most gifted signs for bringing people together," says Santos. "It's not uncommon for people to meet at a Gemini's get-together and form deep bonds and friendships, or even start dating."

The sign of the twins also has a duality that means you'll never know quite what you're going to get. "This adds spontaneity and excitement to any party they host, with guests not knowing how a night is going to turn out," explains Clare. Impromptu games of charades at midnight? Why not!

If you attend an event hosted by a Taurus, you'll feel almost like royalty. "Ruled by Venus, the planet of beauty and opulence, Taureans sure know how to decorate their space," says Clare. "Not only this, but as lovers of comfort and fine dining, they are the best at delivering a mouth-watering spread and creating the perfect, relaxing environment while doing so."

Santos agrees that you'll get "comfortable and luxurious furniture … gratifying musical selections, and a banquet fit for a queen" at a Taurus' home. But he points out that this sign will normally only host intimate gatherings "as the bull is territorial and prefers to have deep relationships before inviting people into their space."

You probably know that the party animal of the zodiac loves to go out, but their extroverted, fun-loving personality means they also make the best hosts.

"The lion is a child at heart and loves to bring people together to play and celebrate life," says Santos. He notes that they will take any excuse to throw a shindig, whether it's someone's birthday or a regular old Friday night. As Clare points out, "They love to be the life and soul of the party."

According to Santos, don't be surprised if it's a costume party they're hosting. "Leos love a good reason to get dressed … and you'll always see a Leo wearing something that makes them stand out from the crowd. Pair this with some incredibly fun party games, a crowd of warm and funny people, and (of course) a musical number and choreographed dance by Leo to finish the night, and you've got yourself one heck of an event!"
