If you’re into astrology (honestly, who isn’t?) and you’ve already picked out your fave gifts for astrology lovers to add to your wishlist, chances are you’ll be looking for other ways to explore your zodiac personality traits.
The good news? Psychic World have revealed exactly how to decorate your very own Christmas tree according to your zodiac sign. So if you haven’t already bought your beautiful Nordmann fir, that’s the best kind of tree, fyi, then head down to your local plant nursery and see what’s left because dressing your tree according to your zodiac sign is a trend no one should miss out on!
Sagittarius festive theme: Nordic
This super cool sign is known for having a thirst for knowledge and love to chase adventures, whether that's geographical, intellectual or spiritual. To compliment Sagittarius’ nature, travel to the Nordic countries for a Nordic theme that mixes paper and wooden ornaments along with delicate garlands draped over twinkling lights. For added Hygge opt for a sheepskin rug instead of a tree skirt.
Capricorn festive theme: Simplicity
Capricorns are skilled at navigating both the material and emotional realms, which makes them perfectly suited to a simple Christmas tree theme. In short, Capricorns don’t need bells and whistles to transform their space, a slim tree will fit just about anywhere and because the body will be sparser, the emphasis is on whatever you choose to decorate with, be it decadent ornaments or delicate beaded garlands.
Aquarius festive theme: Seaside
Humanitarian sign Aquarius is representative of a mystical healer who bestows water, or life, upon the land therefore a seaside tree theme is a great fit for this sign. Think rope garlands, sand-coloured and soft blue ornaments, and a starfish at the top rather than a star! If you want to maximise this theme, you could throw on netting and frame your tree skirt/base in shells from the beach. Even if you are not an Aquarius, this is perhaps the perfect theme for those spending Christmas by the sea this year.
Pisces festive theme: Candy
Pisces is a water sign that reflects a constant division between fantasy and reality so an OTT theme is the one for you. Throw on every sickly-sweet colour you can think of; vibrant pinks, blues, greens, anything goes, for an added, fantastical pop scatter candy canes and lollipops throughout.
Aries festive theme: Ombre
Bold and ambitious Aires love to be number one, which is why they need a theme that stands out above the rest. An ombre theme is sure to impress, all you need to do is start light at the top and darken as you reach the base of your tree. For example, you could place white stars at the top, arctic blue baubles in the middle and navy ribbons at the bottom for a winter wonderland theme.
Taurus festive theme: Woodland creatures
Perfect for outdoorsy Taureans who want to pretend they’re celebrating Christmas under the stars, a woodland theme is the one for you. To achieve it, wrap a simple string of twinkling lights around the tree, then, adorn it with papier-mâché deer, felt squirrels and plenty of woodland animal ornaments.
Gemini festive theme: Multicoloured
Gemini is a busy sign that can often feel pulled in a lot of directions so choosing a single colour wouldn’t be an option. Go full on multicoloured with bold shapes and clashing decorations, from giant red baubles to blue bows and gold tinsel, if you’re a Gemini who hasn’t got the time or focus, multicoloured is for you.
Cancer festive theme: Classic
Those under the Cancer sign are sensitive and effortlessly pick up on energy, to complement this, stick with a traditional classic Christmas tree, decorated with delicate reds, golds and oranges to keep you comfortable in your environment. For an extra touch, add several dried orange slices to your tree – the smell they send through the house is the essence of Christmas.
Leo festive theme: Glam
This spirited fire sign is known to bask in the light, with a theatrical and intense passion, meaning a glamorous theme is best suited. Create a warm holiday glow with a stunning gold and bronze colour palette, for added glitz use oversized and sparkling decorations!
Virgo festive theme: Farmhouse
This earth sign presents practical, perfectionist qualities which suit a farmhouse theme. Neutral gold and white tones blend with most décor and make a great base for any country look. Finish with a few festive and rustic touches, such as a rattan topper and red checked bows. The trick with this theme is to start simple, then build on it as much or as little as you please, which suits the perfectionists among us.
Libra festive theme: Minimalist
Libra’s champion harmony and equilibrium, which makes them perfectly suited to the Minimalist theme. A tree adorned with a simple string of lights and not much else will promote the feeling of an organic environment, so there is very little chance of upsetting a Libra’s sense of balance. But if you do want to make it jollier, why not decorate with a few pine cones
Scorpio festive theme: White metallic
Scorpio is an intense and powerful sign, so you’ll need a statement, and there is no bigger statement than a White metallic Christmas tree, particularly when it is set against dark décor. To complete this look, adorn your tree with large metallic baubles, giant snowflakes, and lavish beading.
