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 December 7, 2018.
If things have felt slow-moving, wonky, or just plain cray, today's New Moon in Sagittarius (2:20 a.m. ET) offers freedom from the chaos and a fresh start. With Sagittarius being a zodiac sign that's most concerned with growth, opportunity, and new adventures, this new moon provides us with the chance to walk into the new year with a clean slate and an optimistic outlook. On a similar note, Sagittarius is also the sign associated with good fortune and abundance, and with lucky Jupiter in Sagittarius influencing this moon, it's an auspicious one. The best way to harness this energy is to set intentions or implement plans for things that we want to see blossom into something much bigger.
Later in the morning, intuitive Mars teams up with Neptune in Pisces, reminding us that the way forward means trusting our intuition and only putting our energy into things that we deeply care about. However, since Sagittarius and Pisces are signs that can be overindulgent, we'll have to make sure we're not heavily indulging in things that may be unhealthy for us.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and be sure to check out your December 2018 horoscope.
