We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible, the best sex positions for each sign, 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 December 22, 2016.
There's a nice buzz in the air thanks to the sociable Libra Moon (feelings) vibing nicely with equally sociable Venus (money, relationships) in Aquarius in the early morning, followed by another friendly pairing between the Moon and lighthearted Jupiter and responsible Saturn in Sagittarius by the early afternoon. Under the influence of this cosmic combination, chatting and connecting with others either in person, email, or social media can help to unlock a few doors, opportunities, and minds.
Things may get a little bumpy later when the Libra Moon opposes rebellious Uranus in Aries which may throw us a curve ball or two where a relationship is concerned. However, Saturn can help us to smooth out any rough patches. Later in the afternoon, the Moon goes void of course (aka when the Moon temporarily stops talking to the other planets) which makes the rest of the day perfect for relaxing and taking it easy.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.
And remember to tune into Bustle's weekly horoscopes video live on Facebook every other Monday at 4 p.m. ET for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
When it comes to love, you might find that you're straddling the fence when it comes to wanting a committed partnership and wanting to do your own thing. If love is truly what you want, find you someone who can do both: fuel your independence and your heart.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
It's time to think about your dream job. Are you doing what you really want to do or simply what's paying the bills? While you certainly need to keep a roof over your head, it seems that the universe wants you to be happy as you do it. It's time to rethink what job security means to you.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Love and romance could be a bright spot for you today as the stars align in your favor. If single, you could have a chance encounter with someone special by way of someone you know, online, or while traveling. If you've already met the love of your life, the connection is electric!
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You can make it work, Cancer. You can find the work-life balance that you deeply crave. Though a big part of making it work may be facing the reality that you may need to walk away from your current job, demand/create a schedule that works for you, or delegate some responsibilities to others.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
It's time to devote more of your time and energy to your craft. You know what you're passionate about, but here's the thing — passion easily dissipates without dedication. Don't you owe it to yourself to dedicate yourself to what you love? Yeah you do. Buckle in and focus.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Let's talk about money, honey. What are you doing to make it and save it? Now's the time to focus on your financial freedom — by looking for work that pays better and values you more as well as working on a get out of debt plan. Let stability motivate you — not instability.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
There's a chance that you and your significant other or someone equally close to you may not see eye to eye today. Though, you should know that the universe has opened up the lines of communication for you, so this is a good time to sit and talk things through until you find a solution.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You may be feeling like quite the visionary today as the ideas and intuition just seem to flow today. That means that this will be a good time for you to find a quiet space (even if you have to create one) and focus on how you're on to monetize the genius that's coming through now. Ca-ching!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Right now it's about capitalizing on the name that you've been making for yourself as it seems that people are starting to get word about you and what you do. As such, if you need to spread the word about yourself, your brand, or your work —today's a good day to connect with your audience.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Today comes as a reminder that you've got this, Capricorn. While your home, family, or sense of stability may be a bit shaky now — know that you have the inner resilience to overcome whatever challenges that may be headed your way. Have faith in you and the universe. Good things are coming.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Things are starting to come together, Aquarius. You should find yourself making some positive progress with that dream or vision that you've been busy working on. Let this win be reminder of how much you can do when you really believe in what you're doing.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
A job opportunity could open up for you today, which could be the result of someone talking you up (without your knowledge) to a few key people. Now that you've got the eye of the tiger again, know that this isn't some sort of a glitch — expect more happy surprises.
