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. 19, 2017.
The Moon continues to move through dutiful Capricorn, making for a fairly laid back yet productive day as the Moon meets up with Neptune in Pisces, Jupiter in Scorpio, and Pluto in Capricorn by the end of the day. With the help of this kind of cosmic combination, we can manifest opportunities and find the focus needed to make a dream come true. Though the big news of the day focuses on Saturn, the planet of hard work and responsibility, which finally leaves Sagittarius and moves home to Capricorn late tonight. With Saturn moving into its natural sign (where it will stay for the next 2.5 years), we should expect our cosmic lessons to focus on Capricorn themes like commitment, efficiency, financial security, and making responsible choices when it comes to a specific area of our lives. Those of us that were born between 1988-89 will be experiencing their first Saturn Return, where these themes will be even more prominent.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
The stars are beginning to align to help you rise up through the ranks and achieve your own version of world domination. As such, it's time to start thinking about what you want for the long-term rather than an instant gratification. You are building something to last you for years to come.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
What's your vision, Taurus? Is it becoming a published author, a noteworthy speaker, or how about a teacher? Whatever you've been envisioning for yourself, now's the time to start putting in the work to help you make the vision a reality. Meanwhile, expect to work on shedding outmoded beliefs.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
It may be time for you to rethink a relationship, especially if this person is demanding more from you than you can afford to give. As a matter of fact, it's time to take stock of anywhere in your life where you've been giving too much of your power away. Expect to work on reclaiming it. Boundaries are needed.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
The focus is on your partnerships today and it may be time to ask yourself if you're getting a good return on the investment that you make in others. It's time for you to start seeing people as they are and not as you want them to be. If some folks start dropping out of your life like flies, this is a good thing.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
The focus turns to your health and routines today, as you may find yourself looking to ways that you can improve both. While wanting improvement is a good thing, take care that you don't push yourself too hard too soon. Start with gradual changes that you can remain consistent with. You'll get there.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Love is the focus for you today, as you may find yourself craving some. Know that the key to getting what you want isn't about focusing on what you don't have but about focusing on what makes you happy. In other words, when you commit to doing the things you love, love will always find you. Enjoy yourself.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You could find yourself in your feelings today, though instead of trying to push those feelings to the side so you can ignore them, consider facing them so you can get down to the bottom of what bothers you. Perhaps this is what you need to remove the toxicity from your life. Start by releasing the past.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
It's time to focus on ways you can bulk up your arsenal and by arsenal I mean skills. What are some ways that you can improve your marketability? Maybe this requires developing new skills or honing the ones you already have. At the same time, think about ways you can better maximize your connections.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
It's all about your money, honey. As such, it's time to start working on improving how you make it and manage it. Part of this means making wiser choices for yourself when it comes to your long term security. Instant gratification will only get you so far. On another note, know your worth.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
As the cosmic darling of the moment, you're in for a re-birthing period of sorts. Now's the time to think about how you'd like to improve your self image. Maybe this means a physical makeover, maybe it means detoxing your life, or maybe it means recognizing that you're more than you give yourself credit.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
What's things looking like for you on the more spiritual side of your life? Are you still denying that you need emotional nourishment? The fact is that you do need it. You can't run on your ideas and thoughts alone. Feeding your spirit means getting the fuel you need to remain hopeful, grounded, and fresh.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You might find that you get by today with the help and support of your friends. At the same time, you might find that your friend's list needs a bit of a cleaning up, as there may people in your life that you've outgrown but holding on to. It's time to see these folks realistically. Mind the company you keep.
