If you’re acquainted with your zodiac sign, chances are you’re familiar with how they can be used for guidance in everything from career moves to your love life. But, the same personality traits of each sign can also be used to create a stunning holiday display. Whether you’re looking to incorporate festive cheer to your chic Toronto, ON loft, or cozy craftsman in Seattle, WA, we’ve got you covered. We consulted with experts to bring you decor tips to dress your home for the holidays according to your zodiac sign.


1) Understand the dominant planetary themes in your chart and decorate your home with those associations to embody and personalize celestial influences

All zodiac signs and their ruling planets have color, metal, and plant associations. For example, Venus is associated with copper and the color green; using those as accents in a room you socialize in can attract her influence and blessings. –Healing Meadows Wellness

2) Find inspiration from each of the 12 signs

Aries will love to center their holiday around a fire. Either a fire pit or a fireplace will help the Aries get into the holiday spirit. Not only does it bring a warm glow to all in attendance, but it allows the Aries to show off their strength by chopping wood.

Taurus should focus on the details of what makes the holidays the holidays. The reminders of childhood such as favorite characters from their favorite holiday specials and knickknacks handed down from previous generations. Gingerbread scented candles will also help the sensual Taurus get into the holiday spirit.

Gemini needs to decorate for the holidays with an inclusive mindset. Providing seating for their guests may be a challenge, so being innovative is key. Creating space for people to exchange ideas in comfort will get Gemini in the mood to celebrate. Extra pillows, chairs, and some eclectic rare holiday decor as conversation starters should help Gemini get into the holiday mood.

Cancer’s holiday begins by pulling out the most sentimental treasures from holidays past, decorating with reminders of the wonder of believing the holidays are the most magical time of year.

Leo should decorate in the spirit of their personality dynamic. Consider large metallic decorations to encompass the entire home and lots of gifts for everyone in their life wrapped in the most spectacular paper placed centrally in the home.

Virgo is best pointed in preparing the home for the holidays by cleaning it from top to bottom. Virgo should pay special attention to every surface and make sure no weird smells are lurking. Once the cleaning is done, Virgo should proceed with a minimalist approach, a potted environmentally friendly tree, or an artful menorah.

Libra’s holiday decor takes a special focus on lighting. Libra should ensure that their many house quests for the holidays feel confident that they look their best in their home.

Scorpio’s color theme for the holidays should be red, black, and gold. Scorpio doesn’t have to lose its edge during all the joy of holiday celebrations. Take it up a notch and opt for a black tree, gold garlands, and red lights.

Sagittarius, make sure you pick up your smart bulbs with time settings, so it looks like you are home when you fly to that far away destination for the holidays.

Being the great patriarch of the zodiac, Capricorn needs to celebrate the abundance had in the preceding year for themselves and all their loved ones. Odes to the traditional should be paid throughout the home that honors their ancestors while making the decorations delightful for the younger generation. Most importantly, preparations should be made for a grand feast with Capricorn sitting at the head of the table.

Aquarius holiday decor should honor a world perspective of holiday tradition. Every continent should be considered in the festivities. Aquarius will take pleasure in learning the nuances of diverse celebrations and how each of those traditions brings people together for the holidays. These individual odes to the world population will also be great conversation starters for all that attend the Aquarius’ holiday gatherings.

For Pisces, the holiday season is a great opportunity to show off one’s creative talents. Pisces might start with a crafting night with their nearest and dearest to make candles, ornaments, and other holiday decorations to kick off the season. This is a great way for Pisces to fill their home with love and art for the holiday season. –Readings by Nico

3) Opt for holiday decorations that speak to your personality

The cardinal or culture bearer signs (Aries, Libra, Cancer, and Capricorn) can design spaces that facilitate connection with others, be it family, friends, or even pets. The fixed or self-exploration signs (Taurus, Scorpio, Leo, and Aquarius) may fill their space with beautiful objects and reflect what they know about themselves – think mirrors and items that relate to your personal experiences. The mutable or service-to-spirit signs (Gemini, Sagittarius, Virgo, and Pisces) would do well to design with what invokes the sacred, anything from statues to crystals to natural objects. -Jaime Fleres, Soul Astrologer, Sacred Heart Healing Arts

4) Decorate using inspiration from your astrology sign element

Fire signs, think campfire vibes. Water signs, you need some snowflakes. Air signs, add scented diffusers to your space. Earth signs, you deserve a real tree this year. –Rosy Mack

5) Choose decor elements that make you smile

When you go home, you should be greeted with a sight that makes you smile. For fiery Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, it might be a red door featuring your holiday art, while for Air signs (Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini), opt for something cool and cerebral, like a sky blue door with a welcoming Wind Dancer. For Water signs Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces, a navy or black door with a mystical angel, and for earthy signs Capricorn, Taurus, and Virgo, a blue or green door with greenery and ornaments in a planter. –Linda Sherwin Consulting

6) Spread holiday cheer by playing to your signs’ design traits

Expect Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius to put on a show with their dazzling light display, ginormous trees, and animatronic Santas. Meanwhile, Earth signs like Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn may scale it back with a classic, minimalist approach, including sustainable holiday trees, homemade ornaments, and lots of pleasing-to-the-touch fabrics. Count on Water(Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) and Air signs (Gemini, Libra, Aquarius) to break the mold, preferring non-traditional color schemes, multi-holiday decorated rooms, punk rock gnomes, and seaweed snacks for Santa. –Little Crab Astrology
