Your Daily Horoscopes for Monday, Dec. 16th

The distractions are endless today, making it difficult to hold our concentration on any one task as the inquisitive Gemini Moon increases our curiosity and draws our attention to something new. It may be quite challenging to follow through on everything we start now, since we can imagine many possible outcomes in every direction we look. But it’s nearly impossible to gauge how much to say as messenger Mercury aligns with over-the-top Jupiter.

Aries Horoscope

(Mar 21 – Apr 19)

You may be feeling extremely enthusiastic today as effervescent Jupiter pumps up your optimism. Even if you are facing tough circumstances, you can still find something positive to focus on. But don’t paint such a worry-free picture that you overlook an important truth right before your eyes. Instead, map out a realistic strategy for the upcoming months ahead and concentrate on accomplishing your goals. Sheer determination and hard work could be all you need to make your dreams come true.

Taurus Horoscope

(Apr 20 – May 20)

New perspectives continue to expand your understanding of the big world outside your door. You are going on a journey within your mind, so take every opportunity you can to learn more about yourself as you travel. Explore your interests in religion, philosophy, or metaphysics, even if you are normally concerned with more mundane things. Put your current inspiration to work by doing your best to discover the secrets of the universe.

Gemini Horoscope

(May 21 – Jun 20)

Your moods may be a bit uncontrollable today, prompting you to react without thinking. Usually, you’re the one who cleverly motivates others, but the tables are turned for the next few weeks as your associates push you into action. You won’t be able to get away without cooperating, so use this time to act in a forward-thinking manner instead of waiting until it’s too late. It’s okay to take a risk, but allowing others to lead may be more productive for now.

Cancer Horoscope

(Jun 21 – Jul 22)

Your big ideas might not solve any work-related issues, but they do help you think more globally. You could try to bury your feelings so you can kick yourself into action today, but you could move so fast that you overdo it. Don’t let your impulsive excitement lead you into any agreements that limit your range of action or you may feel stuck until the end of the year. Relying on your natural cautious instincts now works in your favor.

Leo Horoscope

(Jul 23 – Aug 22)

You receive an encouraging boost of energy today from witty Mercury as it stirs up colorful ideas in your 5th House of Creativity; however, it’s your decision on how best to use your current inspiration. You may be highly productive or choose to have a whole lot of fun instead. The good news is that you can get the best of both worlds, applying your playful spirit in a spontaneous way whether you are at work or at home. Whatever you do, don’t waste this magical moment.

Virgo Horoscope

(Aug 23 – Sep 22)

Your primary concern over the following weeks may involve finding the right mixture of enthusiasm and restraint as you vacillate between moving forward with your career aspirations and retreating into the safety of your nest. Your best strategy might be to avoid making a final decision for a while. Let the internal conflict inspire you to imagine new possibilities even while circumstances continue to slow you down.

Libra Horoscope

(Sep 23 – Oct 22)

You may feel another surge of mental energy as you search for long-term solutions to current problems. But don’t squander a wonderful opportunity by staying within your head. Now that you are buzzing, do something about it and initiate a bold move. Don’t get hung up wondering if you are making the right decision or not; any movement now is better than waiting for the perfect moment. Strike while the iron is hot.

Scorpio Horoscope

(Oct 23 – Nov 21)

Your financial security might seem so important to you now that you’re tempted to set aside matters of the heart so you can focus on managing your business. Of course you realize your silence will not last forever, so you’re probably just delaying the inevitable. Although your self-esteem may be shaky today, you could boost your confidence by pushing past your fears and guiding your actions from a place of love.

Sagittarius Horoscope

(Nov 22 – Dec 21)

The party vibes kick up another notch as jovial Jupiter spreads his good cheer all over the place. You may feel charged up with an energetic buzz, allowing you to enjoy just about anything that attracts your attention. Unfortunately, your short-term enthusiasm can temporarily overwhelm your long-term strategic goals. Beware of saying yes too quickly, even if you are more than ready for whatever happens next. A little bit of caution improves your chances of success.

Capricorn Horoscope

(Dec 22 – Jan 19)

Preventing your feelings from bottling up within you is critical today because your intentions will probably slip out even if you don’t express what’s on your mind. Taking full responsibility for your needs is much more admirable than playing the role of a victim. Your ambitions may be honorable, but circumstances can quickly get muddled unless you are prepared to walk your emotional talk. Thankfully, your sense of integrity will see you through.

Aquarius Horoscope

(Jan 20 – Feb 18)

You might be very surprised with all the changes occurring in your life. Your social calendar continues to get even busier as friendly Mercury is activated in your 11th House of Friends. Enjoy the energetic shift outward as you think about filling up your calendar with exciting activities. Just remember that it’s okay to turn down an invitation if you don’t feel up to it, for there will be plenty more opportunities for fun throughout the holiday season.

Pisces Horoscope

(Feb 19 – Mar 20)

Although you may be a fairly private person, you now have a chance to show the world how well you can play with others. Perhaps you feel more ambitious today, yet you’re not certain how best to apply your efforts. Don’t worry about finalizing a new plan, for your greatest strength today is your ability to make it up as you go along. Have faith in the process of collaboration and be ready to create positive change.
