Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, founder of My Life Created, shares every zodiac sign's daily horoscope for December 21.
We leave behind the adventure and idealism of Sagittarius season and get down to serious business today, as the sun moves into industrious Capricorn late this morning. As today marks both the start of Capricorn season and winter solstice, we’re encouraged to review what we’ve been able to achieve over the past year and what we aim to achieve in the next.
With the moon in home and family oriented Cancer for most of the day, emotions could run the gamut today. Expect to think long and hard about the security and safety for ourselves and loved ones. As Capricorn season encourages us to buckle down and do what needs to be done to take care of ourselves and others, there may need to be some difficult but necessary decisions made today in the spirit of responsibility and accountability.
When the moon moves to fun-loving Leo by the late afternoon, we’re encouraged to stop doomscrolling for the day and tap into the spaces and places that offer a bit of cheer.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Aries (March 21-April 19)
