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. 20, 2017.
After a rather cranky start to the day, thanks to the pragmatic Capricorn Moon squaring off with freedom-loving Uranus in Aries, the energy evens out a bit. By the afternoon, Venus in optimistic Sagittarius squares off with Chiron in Pisces, which can show us where we need to heal when it comes to our relationships and our relationship to ourselves. At the same time, this Venus-Chiron match up can also show us where we may also need to heal wounds around scarcity (not having enough) and abundance. Later in the evening, the meeting between Venus in Sagittarius and Uranus in Aries and help us to free ourselves of old patterns and beliefs around love and money in favor for a fresh start. This theme continues as the Moon moves into forward thinking Aquarius by late tonight, which puts us in the mood to leave the past behind and take a brand new approach to getting what we need.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You may be feeling a bit dejected today, as self-doubts could have you feeling like you're not worthy enough for something that you want. However, it's important that you separate fact from fiction today, when it comes to your current outlook. Know that ultimately you exist beyond limitations.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You could be feeling a pang of sadness today, as it may seem like the only one that has your back right now is you. On a similar note, you could also be feeling like you can't entirely be yourself with someone in your life. This could be the push you need to release these flimsy relationships and find your tribe.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Is there someone close to you that has an uncanny habit of making you feel like you can't do anything right? Do you find yourself working double time trying to prove this person wrong? If the answer is yes, know that what this person thinks of you doesn't determine your worth. Free yourself.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
It's time to believe in your talents a little bit more, especially when it comes to your professional life. You spend so much time going above and beyond for others, but are you willing to go above and beyond for yourself when it comes to your ambitions. Stop following someone else's lead and set your own trend.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You could find yourself feeling hopeless about your love life today; like you might never find what you're looking for. Before you get too caught up thinking about what you don't have, use this as an opportunity to take charge of your own happiness. Focusing on your joy increases your magnetism.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Has a relationship with a certain someone become a drain on you? You enjoy being helpful to others but sometimes you have to be OK with letting others help themselves. Giving too much of yourself to those that don't give back could leave you feeling resentful. It's time to break away from the vampires.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
It's time to practice what you preach when it comes to your habits, health, and how you manage your schedule. While you may be good at offering others some sage advice, you may need to pull back a bit and focus on your own matters first. This includes doing things that make you happy as well.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Are you giving yourself enough credit for your skills and talents? If not, don't sell yourself short, especially when it comes to getting compensated for your talent. Though if you feel like you're lacking in the skills or talent department, this could be a good time to work on honing them. Believe in you.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Your confidence may not be as high as it should be today. You could be beating yourself up about something that happened in the past or feeling a lack of support from those you love. However, it's important that you invest in your joy today. And if necessary, talk to someone that makes you feel good.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
There's a saying: "closed mouths don't get fed". It applies to those times where we may be afraid to ask for or say what we want. Today may be one of those times for you, but you're reminded not to let doubt or fear get in the way of you claiming what's yours. You'll never know unless you take a shot.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
If there's one thing that you remember today, is that you deserve to be happy. You deserve to have the things that you want and to feel safe and secure. This might be a mantra that you need to repeat to yourself throughout the day, so you can continue to attract good things to you and stop expecting the worst.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You may be comparing yourself to others today, getting upset with yourself for not being where someone else is. Though before you fall too far down that rabbit hole, recognize that another person's trajectory has no bearing on what you do or don't do. You are the one that defines your value and success.
