How To Decorate Your House For The Holidays Based On Your Zodiac Sign

While there are many different avenues available to take when it comes to decorating for the holidays, doing so based on your zodiac sign is a fun and unique way to get in the holiday spirit. If you're new to the art of astrology, it can best be described as a practice that gives insight into a person's personality and psychology based on the placement of the planets when they were born, as noted by the New York Post.

Though astrology can get pretty complicated once you start diving into the entirety of your birth chart, simply knowing your sun sign is easy, being that it is just based on the month and day that you were born. Traditionally, the 12 different zodiac signs are divided into four different categories of water, air, fire, and earth, and the individual signs themselves are Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. No matter what your sign is, keep reading for House Digest's guide on how to best decorate for the holidays based on your zodiac sign.
