In this Dec. 23 daily horoscope, Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, founder of My Life Created, shares the astrological events happening today that will affect every zodiac sign. Below, here's a look at how astrology will affect our lives today.
We may need to exercise lots of patience today as aggressive Mars in Aries battles it out with power-hungry Pluto in Capricorn. With the moon also in Aries, making our fuses shorter than usual, we'll need to be mindful of getting ourselves into unnecessary drama or power struggles. Keeping cool may be easier said than done though, as Mars also teams up with the moon in the late afternoon ramping up the intensity. And later, Mercury in pragmatic Capricorn faces off with wounded Chiron in Aries, which could make words sting a little more than usual.
On the upside though, this Moon-Mars-Pluto combo could help us find the drive, determination, or self-assurance needed to initiate a plan or project. For those of us that may have trouble standing up for ourselves, today encourages us to be assert ourselves. Those of us that are used to taking charge can benefit most by being encouraging or supportive of others.
