What if the success of your entire year could be determined by that midnight moment on New Year's Eve, when your lips either meet with a loved one to ensure good tidings, or you find yourself standing alone and therefore kissing-off any good fortune for the coming year?
It's a bit superstitious to think like that, but still many of us will scramble for that New Year's Eve midnight kiss like our entire year depends on it. It probably doesn't, of course, but as long as you're desperately seeking a smooch it may as well be one amazing kiss, right?
Kissing styles differ from horoscope sign to sign: Passionate Scorpio kisses are deep and long, while Geminis keep the liplock light. Finding your best kissing match now won't necessarily guarantee complete happiness and fortune in the New Year, but at least you'll get one hot kiss out of it. Pucker up and let us know, which sign would you most like to smooch?
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Assertive, forceful, energetic and powerful... Aries is ruled by fiery Mars, and if there's one thing Mars knows, it's how to turn up the heat on New Year's Eve. Aries can channel all of that fiery red energy into one red-hot midnight kiss. This sign approaches kissing the way it approaches everything else -- delightfully impulsive. If there's anything left to be said, it's this: Brace yourself.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Slow, sensuous and solid as a rock ... that's Taurus, and that's why their relationships tend to last longer than many other signs. The other reason is their sense of touch -- the way they have of brushing their hand against yours in such a way that by the time you're done with your first glass of champagne, you know the 12 o'clock kiss will occur. And if it's everything your Bull thought it would be and more, you won't spend much of the coming New Year apart.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
If you're interesting, colorful, move quickly and keep them guessing, Gemini won't stray. But first you'll have to capture their attention with your noisemaker. The process goes like so: First, the glance. Then the wink and/or smile, followed by the first few words (yours better be amazingly glib and charming). Gemini will watch to see if you're capable of keeping the conversation going for hours instead of just moments. Finally, (drum roll, please) the kiss. If the liplock is quick, sexy and playful, and leaves more to their imagination, they'll be back for more in the New Year. If they pull away before you do, toss their number. You blew it.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Take a look around your home, or ask someone to be brutally honest about how it feels to be there. If they tell you it's homey, comfy and they just feel good when they're sitting in your kitchen, great. If not, invest in some paisley appliance covers, a whole bunch of knick-knacks and a welcome mat for the front door before making a move on Cancer. If midnight is approaching and you still haven't found 'em, check near the hors d'oeuvres table, where Cancer will be hovering over anything delicious. When you initiate the kiss, it will be warm and wonderful, and you probably won't want to stop at just one (both kisses and hors d'oeuvres).
Leo (July 23 - August 22)
Pretend you're a contestant on 'The Bachelor' or 'The Bachelorette.' Can you imagine waiting in line to see if you're the one who'll get the rose? That's what it's going to be like to try to woo a Leo -- especially on New Year's Eve. If you've got one of these romantic creatures in your sights, keep in mind that you are most definitely not alone on your quest for a kiss. You'll only win that rose if you put everything you feel for them into it. Everything.
Virgo (August 23 - September 22)
Virgo is turned off by dirt, disorganization and chaotic surroundings, so they may be a little stressed out on New Year's Eve. They'll want the conditions to be absolutely perfect before they'll be able to relax and enjoy your midnight kiss, so help them prepare. Move to a quiet corner of the party where you can be "alone." And because they don't like things sloppy, sweaty, unrefined or clumsy, keep your kiss soft and clean -- save the spit swapping for another day!
Libra (September 23 - October 22)
Libras are the romance-makers of the zodiac. They live to please their significant other. The catch is that they also want their mate to live to please them. If you're after one of these partner-oriented creatures, the best thing you can do is to let them know that you're ready to settle down. Then, make the time you spend with them perfect and your New Year's kiss the most passionate, romantic experience they've ever had. The good news is that they'll do the same for you -- and the kiss you share at bedtime 35 years from now will be just as exciting as the first one on New Year's Eve.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)
There's really only one word that can be used to sum up Scorpios -- and it goes for any Scorpio in any place at any moment of any day: Passion. They're passionate about anything and everything they do. So you can only imagine how passionate they might be when they're face to face with someone they're attracted to on New Year's Eve. Scorpio can't NOT kiss you! And of course, you'll remember this long, passionate kiss for many New Year's Eves to come.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)
Sagittarians always want more -- especially when it comes to kisses. So if you're after a kiss from a Sag on New Year's Eve, it may not be tough to come by. But do think about making it memorable because you'll be up against a myriad of competitors. Your best bet with Sag is to keep the kisses coming long past midnight to make sure they're paying attention. After all, what Sag loves most is more and more of what they like: Your kisses!
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)
Capricorns can be rather tough to romance, but it's not mission impossible. It will just take a bit longer to accomplish. Start horning in on your Goat early in the evening if you want to work up to a kiss by midnight. Don't worry, it will be worth the extra effort. Your kiss will be a refined, elegant and seriously sexy smooch.
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)
Aquarians are eccentric and proud of it, but they actually tend to be most unremarkable when it comes to romantic entanglements. While they'd never admit it, they flit from fling to fling quickly until 'The Real Thing' arrives. That could be you, depending on how you kiss them on New Year'sEve. They prefer kisses as sudden, startling and as amazingly different as they are. If you're up for the challenge, approach them with a very determined look in your eyes at 11:59 p.m. -- or don't bother at all.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
In the Pisces mind, the first step toward deciding whether or not to let you close is whether or not they feel comfortable with physical closeness, which starts with the way you smell -- no kidding. So be sure to wear a fragrance to your New Year's party, but nothing too overpowering. What you're after is that all-important midnight kiss, which -- if you make it soft and tender -- will pave the path to intimacy with this sensitive sign in 2011.
