In this daily horoscope for December 17, astrologer Nina Kahn shares how today’s astrological events will affect each zodiac sign.
Happy Friday, cosmic cuties! The moon spends the day in communicative air sign Gemini, which boosts our energy levels and inspires us to be a little more social — just in time for any fun Friday evening plans. Despite the overall outgoing and positive vibe, we might wake up feeling lost in sensitive past memories as the moon connects with wounded-healer comet Chiron in the early morning. The only way to truly heal is to feel, so stay open to your emotions as you kick off your day.
By the late morning and through the early afternoon, the quizzical Gemini moon will form a helpful aspect to down-to-business Saturn, which shifts us into boss mode and allows us to channel our influx of mental energy toward more productive tasks. It’s a great time to buckle down, focus on work, and handle any lingering responsibilities for the week so you can head into the weekend feeling free of any serious obligations.
Keep in mind that today’s first-quarter moon is on the brink of its monthly lunar climax, so we might be experiencing a general build-up of emotional pressure and tension. Thankfully, tomorrow’s illuminating full moon will bring a much-needed release. Cheers to the weekend!
