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 horoscope for December 21-25, 2018.
Big things are happening this weekend as the Sun leaves freedom-loving Sagittarius for steadfast and hardworking Capricorn on December 21, which also coincides with the Winter Solstice for those of us here in the northern hemisphere. With Capricorn season kicking off, our attention turns to what we've accomplished for the year and what we're looking forward to accomplishing in the next. And thanks to an emotionally powerful Full Moon in Cancer on Saturday, we're called to release and leave behind anything that's emotionally unhealthy or fails to feed us from the inside out (family drama included).
Though with the Moon in tenderhearted Cancer until early Monday morning, we should find ourselves in the mood to spend time with those that we love, as Cancer and Capricorn are the zodiac signs associated with family and tradition. Plus, with love planet Venus still in passionate Scorpio and Mars in compassionate Pisces, many of us will most likely be feeling pretty tender and vulnerable this weekend, and in need of the warmth and support of those closest to us. And while Capricorn prides itself on being self-sufficient, the important thing for us to remember this weekend is that we don't have to go it alone.
By Monday, the vibe shifts significantly as the Moon shifts into warmhearted and generous Leo, setting the perfect mood for gift giving and holiday gatherings. With the Moon teaming up with Jupiter and Mercury in fun-loving and equally generous Sagittarius by the first half of the day, there should be more than enough good vibes and good tidings to go around. However, with the Leo Moon squaring off with Venus in Scorpio by the late afternoon, we'll just have to be careful of letting our egos get the best of us when it comes to connecting with others.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign this weekend, and be sure to check out your December 2018 horoscope.
