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. 18, 2017.
The day kicks off with auspicious event — a New Moon in Sagittarius (1:30 a.m. EST) which also happens to be the last New Moon of the year. With the energy of this moon still potent, it's the perfect time to set intentions and goals for the new year with the help of a visionary, inspiring, and purposeful sign like Sagittarius. With serious Saturn in Sagittarius conjoined to this moon, we should find that whatever we wish to begin or create at over the next several weeks, will be something that has sticking power. This theme continues as the Moon shifts into hardworking and dedicated Capricorn later in the day. With the Moon in Capricorn, we'll find that we're in the mood to make the day a productive one, as the Moon motivates us to dig in and get to work. Capricorn gives us the persistence and pragmatism needed to make our goals, plans, and ideas come to fruition.
By the late evening, this energy is amplified as the Moon meets up with Mars in passionate Scorpio, which is a good combination when it comes to helping us get focused and stay on track.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
As you embark on this new path, think about the kind of legacy you wish to create. What do you want to be recognized for? It's time to blaze a trail, namely when it comes to something you're deeply passionate about. Lead with your heat and go with what fulfills you. Then dedicate yourself to that.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
It may be time to drop some dead weight where an intimate relationship is concerned and get some clarity on what you really want from a partnership. Simply put, you can't be the only one willing to do the emotional labor. On another note, a team effort could help you with getting a idea off the ground.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You could find yourself ready to take the next big step with your partner (in either love or business), which could have you ready to invest in the future. As a result, the two of you could find yourselves talking finances and resources today as a part of your plans. Meanwhile, a job search could be fruitful.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
When it comes to love and attraction, the most attractive thing you can do right now is put yourself first. Not necessarily in a selfish way but in a self-love kind of way. At the same time, while your love life is heating up, look for those that seek to emotionally nourish you as you nourish them.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Can you dedicate yourself to your own happiness? This might be the question of the day for you. As you get ready to embark on a new year, look to ways you can commit yourself to better enjoying your life. This may mean further delving into your creativity, finding true love, or learning to love you more.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Before you can work on bringing your ideas to fruition, it's important that you're able to do it from a solid home base. If your home life has been in flux or no longer suitable for the kind of sanctuary you need, this could be a good time to make a move. Meanwhile, go where you feel inspired today.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
It's time to stop letting negative or self-limiting thinking get in your way, namely when it comes to goals and ambitions. While past experiences can bestow you with wisdom, it's important to know how to differentiate when you're being pragmatic and when you're being fearful. Trust yourself.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
There's very little that can get in your way these days, so why not go for the gold? With your skills and motivation, you could manifest a new gig, client, or financial opportunity that could afford you some long-term security. Follow-up on leads and market yourself accordingly. You never know who's watching.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You've been putting in the work and dedication and it's time for you to step back and claim your rewards. As such, you could manifest an opportunity to show off your expertise. At the same time, you could have people talking you up behind the scenes which could lead to rewards too. Celebrate you.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
The attention is on you and how you feel today, which means it's a good time to call up a close friend or two and have a good vent session. With your birthday season just a few days away, you're in the process of purging the things you won't be taking with you into the new year, including toxic feelings.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
It's time to get your network on today, Aquarius. There's new relationships to forge and opportunities for you to snatch up, thanks to your glowing reputation. Meanwhile, something you've been cooking behind the scenes is shaping up to be a success. You'll know when it's ready to be revealed.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You've been putting in so much time and dedication when it comes to your career that it's possible for you to manifest a promotion or opportunity that pushes you into the spotlight to claim your position on top. Stay true to your values and vision and there's very little that can throw you off track.
