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. That's why Bustle has enlisted Mecca Woods, a New York City-based astrologer of MyLifeCreated.com, to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each day. Today's topic: your daily horoscope for Dec. 12, 2017.
After a bumpy start to the day, thanks to the Libra Moon squaring off with all- or-nothing Pluto in Capricorn, the energy shifts into a lighter, brighter vibe. That's because the friendly and social Libra Moon teams up with the Sun and Mercury in optimistic Sagittarius by late this afternoon, which is a great combo for sharing with and learning from others. Towards the late evening, the Sun and Mercury sync up in Sagittarius, a sign also known for it's foresight and visionary approach. With Mercury still retrograde, and having the Moon in creative Libra and the Sun in Sagittarius, this cosmic combination could be good for reviving old ideas or clearing a creative block. Thanks to Mercury helping us to retrace our steps and make adjustments as needed, we can all be like Sagittarius in looking forward to what's in store for the future.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
A chat with your partner or someone close to you could be the thing you need to jog your brain into action. The feedback they provide could invaluable when it comes to realizing a goal or one of your big ideas. Even words of encouragement will do. Someone could call on you to do the same for them.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You might be thinking about your finances today, namely when it comes to a major financial obligation or investment. As such, it might be a good time to review your current money habits and see where you might be able to make improvements, as well as making sure your bookkeeping is accurate.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
An ex lover could make an appearance today, which could catch you by surprise. Though reconnecting with this person could give you the closure you need to move on, or at the very least it will remind you why you should. For coupled Gemini, a heart-to-heart convo with bae could be helpful.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You might find yourself in organization mode today, whether it's at home or the office. This is a good time for going into those closets and drawers and taking stock of things you can donate or toss out, especially as you're working on closing out the year. Go forward free and clear of the clutter.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
It may be all about second chances today when it comes to a creative project you're working on, especially if you've been dragging your feet on it or allowed it to fall by the wayside. The synapses are firing so don't ignore what comes to you. Romantically, an online flirtation could be the source of a little fun.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
When it comes to your family, especially your parents, it's helpful to remember that what may have worked (or didn't work) for them might not necessarily apply to you and your life's journey. It's not that you shouldn't heed their advice, but for today, do it with a grain of salt. You have to go your own way.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
A friend or sibling could offer you some words of wisdom today that could help boost your spirits or provide you with a source of inspiration. Don't be shy in speaking your mind or speaking from the heart as this is the kind of genuine connection that both your heart and your mind needs. Open up.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
When it comes to where you'd like to be financially, it helps if you focus on what you want instead of what you don't. To help you to stay on this task, consider creating a vision board or a journal geared toward calling your financial dreams into existence. Keep your eyes on the prize.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Don't lose sight of the light at the end of the tunnel, today. While it may feel like you're moving backwards, know that this is an excellent time to handle any unfinished business or projects that you may have pending so you can move forward later. Think about where you want to be and work strategically.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
How much do you give yourself credit for? If you don't give yourself enough, this might be a good time to take stock of the things that you've accomplished. You might notice there's a lot more than you previously thought. This should give you a boost when it comes to planning next steps.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
When it comes to pursuing your goals, look to the ways that you can maximize your friendships and associations to uncover opportunities. Reconnecting with someone from your past or a person that you've haven't spoken in a while could be worth your while. Get out and put on your networking cap.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
When it comes to your goals and ambitions, it may be important to remind yourself of how resilient and capable you are. In other words, don't lose steam because what you want is in reach. The same sentiment goes when it comes to love. Don't shortchange yourself. Recognize how much you have to offer.
