In this daily horoscope for December 8, 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.

Although we’re currently in the season of expansive and over-the-top Sagittarius, we’re called towards moderation today as ambitious Mars in Scorpio squares off with bountiful Jupiter in Aquarius. Under this Mars-Jupiter square, we’ll find ourselves motivated to “go big or go home” when it comes to accomplishing our goals. However, we’ll need to avoid overwhelming ourselves or doing too much too soon.

With the moon still in friendly Aquarius, the focus remains on community for the day. The Aquarius moon teams up with chatty Mercury and the sun in Sagittarius. Under this cosmic combination, we can best execute our vision by collaborating with others and getting the backup or support we need. This is also the kind of planetary weather that encourages us to be generous and helpful towards the people within our local and global communities too.

Read below to see what the stars mean for your zodiac sign today, and make sure to check out your December 2021 monthly horoscope.

You might be unsure if you’re coming or going today with all you’re trying to juggle. Make sure to set aside some time to anchor yourself and find your chill. A midday nap could help.

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)

If you’re not feeling it today, don’t just disappear or go silent on folks. Let people know what’s up so you can get the care and rest that you need. Communicating is also a courteous thing to do.

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
