Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, founder of My Life Created, shares every zodiac sign's daily horoscope for December 16.

The moon remains in easygoing Taurus until the late afternoon, helping us to find a nice and steady pace to the workday. During the morning, the moon teams up with values-driven Venus and powerful Pluto in hardworking Capricorn. Together, this cosmic combination can be good for handling job and money-related matters. Overall, it’s an excellent time for tending to our responsibilities and commitments, especially if there’s an agreement or partnership involved.

By mid-morning, the Taurus moon faces off with expansive Jupiter in Aquarius, which can lead to innovative ideas or making daring yet grounded decisions. We’ll just need to be mindful of overextending ourselves or spreading ourselves too thin.

By the afternoon, the energy picks up significantly as the moon moves to communicative Gemini. With the moon in Gemini, we usually find ourselves feeling chattier and more active (physically and mentally) than usual. By the late evening, when the Gemini moon gets into an opposition with rambunctious Mars in Sagittarius, we may need to watch for irritability, arguments, or impulsive decision-making.
