Today's Horoscope: December 12, 2019


Here’s your daily horoscope, according to Mecca Woods, Bustle’s resident astrologer and creator of We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible or how each sign handles conflict in relationships. Below, a look at how astrology will affect our lives today.

Coming off of last night's Full Moon in Gemini, the Moon transitions into tenderhearted Cancer by the early evening, helping us to slow down, pull inward and reflect. With the Moon in Cancer, we might find our emotions and intuition heightened, making today a good time to seek out emotional support or comfort and listening to our gut.

Later in the evening, the Moon goes on to square off with Chiron in Aries, followed by an opposition with bountiful Jupiter in Capricorn, which could have us feeling extra sensitive or tender. The best way to deal with this cosmic combo is to spend time doing things that soothe us, like spending time with close family or friends.

Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and make sure to check out your December 2019 monthly horoscope.

Tina Gong/Bustle

You might have something on your chest today that you need to get off. Know that by honoring and speaking your truth, you're actually performing an act of self-care. Don't worry about how others receive what you have to say. It's not your job to be responsible for other's behavior.

Tina Gong/Bustle

Money is on your mind today and you might be looking to spend it. Your best bet, however, may be to work on ways that you can save it and make it grow. If you have a financial goal that you're working towards, don't give up hope. It's coming together. Have patience (and faith).
