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. 28, 2017.
For those of us that could use a time out, today could offer the reprieve we need. That's because the Moon shifts into laid-back Taurus in the wee hours of the morning; providing us with calm, stabilizing energy to start the day off on a good foot. Later in the morning, the Moon meets up with Venus and Saturn in Capricorn, which could be helpful for handling financial and relationship related matters, especially when it comes to planning for the long term.
For those of us that want to stay productive and need to get work done, the earthy vibes in the sky can also be of assistance, especially as the Taurus Moon meets up with the Sun in Capricorn by the mid-afternoon. Under this cosmic combination, we should find ourselves motivated to dig in and take care of business while feeling good about it too. This Sun-Moon combination suggests that we can best get our needs met through hard work and dedication to our goals.
Towards the end of the night when the Moon meets up with Neptune in dreamy Pisces, we get the opportunity to kick back and relax. Though when the Taurus Moon opposes Mars in passionate Scorpio about an hour later, we'll have to guard against feeling restless or anxious. That's when we can borrow a tip from the Taurus Moon and do something that calms and feeds the senses, like getting a warm hug or a having a relaxing hot cup of tea.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You could manifest a pretty promising financial opportunity today which could mean an offer for a better paying job or a promotion. Though in order to receive such goodies, you have to make sure you're putting in the footwork necessary. Overall, when it comes to planning your career, follow through.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You should be feeling highly motivated today when it comes to making something you've dreaming happen. However, you could quickly lose steam if you allow the wrong people to get in your ear about what's possible and what's not. Not everyone needs to know your moves. Eyes on the prize.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You'll get the most accomplished by working behind the scenes today. Though know that you don't have to push yourself too hard because you could use the downtime. While you do have a moment to yourself, consider what toxic habits or feelings you're ready to commit to leaving behind for good.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
When it comes to your hopes and wishes, you should find the closest people to you (like your best friend or your partner) to provide you with the support and encouragement you need to make those wishes come true. If you need assistance or feedback, don't be shy about asking for it. They're there to help.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
It's time to grab life by the horns when it comes to your career and ambitions, namely if you're not feeling fulfilled or inspired by what you currently do. The worst thing you can do right now is think you have to settle. There's more out there for you and there's a strong possibility you could get closer to it today.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Your source of nourishment today comes courtesy of learning, travel, and fresh experiences. Even if hopping on a plane is not on your itinerary for today, you should still do something that exposes you to something new, if only it's a documentary. Then used what you learn/see as inspiration.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Your finances and long-term security are on your mind today, which means you could be looking at ways you can reduce or pay down debts or invest in your financial future. Whichever is on your plate, know there are no quick fixes or riches. Though with some discipline and planning you can win.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
While you may be in the mood to fly solo today when it comes to tackling the projects on your plate, it might be best to call on some back up rather than trying to go it alone. At the same time, if others are willing to help, be open to receiving it. On another subject, the day could end on a romantic note.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
If you've been thinking about kick-starting your job search, you could find a promising lead or two. At the same time, when it comes to the work that you do have, moderation might be the theme for today. Listen to your body and take things as slow as you might need. Also, it's time for new money habits.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You should find yourself in the mood for some pleasure and playtime today, which might have you ready to switch up your hair, add some luxury to your wardrobe, or wear that smokin' lipstick that makes you feel good in your skin. Maybe later, you might be up for some fun with your crew. Enjoy yourself.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
It's time to dial it down a few notches and focus on what you need emotionally. Maybe it's some time spent with loving friends or family, or a cozy evening on the couch. Whatever you choose to do today, know that it's OK if you're not feeling like your usual social self. Cocooning is necessary.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
Today might be a whirlwind of a day for you, though it isn't just about focusing on the tasks at hand but also about focusing on things that you'd like to see come true. It's about making the time and energy that you put forth today count. Ultimately, whatever you choose to put your mind to can happen.
