Your Daily Horoscope For December 23, 2016


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, to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each day. Today's topic: your daily horoscope for Dec. 23, 2016.

The Moon (feelings) slips into the deep waters of Scorpio this morning, turning up the intrigue, passion, seduction, and intensity. As such, expect emotions and intuition to run high as well as deep longing for something or someone we can't seem to get over (what's your obsession?). But a Scorpio Moon is not just for feeling all the feels. When the the Moon is in this powerful sign, we also get the opportunity to see through the crap in our lives so we can purge it completely.

By early afternoon the Moon joins the Sun (power) in pragmatic Capricorn. With these two powerhouses together, planning for the new year and beyond may feel like planning our own personal coups — insert maniacal laughter here. Later in the afternoon, the Scorpio Moon meets up with equally sensitive Mars (action, courage) in Pisces. Under this influence, we could find ourselves emoting some of our deepest feelings, especially with those who may push our buttons. Though a Moon-Mars mashup could inspire us to act on something we care deeply about.

Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Caroline Wurtzel/Bustle

Let it go, Aries. Whatever you may be holding on to, whomever you may be holding on to — there's no need in torturing yourself trying to hold on. While you're not necessarily the most emotional person recognize there's value in these uncomfortable feelings. Use them to release what no longer works.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Caroline Wurtzel/Bustle

You may find yourself planning and plotting the future with your partner or someone equally close to you today. Among the things that could come up are travel or possibly returning to school. If you're flying solo, try making a list and checking it twice about the kind of partner you want to attract.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Caroline Wurtzel/Bustle

You may have found yourself in a weird power dynamic with a co-worker or someone you work closely with, and today could be the day you reach your last straw. Instead of resorting to petty games, though, be tactfully upfront with this person on how you feel. Don't stew on it.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Caroline Wurtzel/Bustle

Love could sparkle today for you, whether you're single or with the love of your life, especially if a little romantic fun is involved.

Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)

Caroline Wurtzel/Bustle

You might find yourself in your feelings today, as a relationship with a family member could have you feeling put out but know that getting into a power struggle with this person could cause more harm than good.

Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)

Caroline Wurtzel/Bustle

A relationship takes the center stage today, as you're encouraged to open up the lines of communication with this person and let them know exactly how you feel.
