Click on the day of the week for your daily horoscope:
You never shortchange your friends in the support department, so why won’t you do the same for yourself? With the moon in your sign till early evening, you deserve a little indulgence. How about a big splurge instead? Have that loaded smoothie instead of the austere green juice. Treat yourself to a manicure even if your last one isn’t even chipping yet. And just say no-way to others’ exhausting requests. Later (or tomorrow), when la luna swings into your productive second house, you can get back to your regularly scheduled, hard-working programming.
Work or play? Today's Aquarius moon puts you in industrious spirits. But just as you get into a productive groove, interruptions arrive, courtesy of a square from social butterfly Venus in your outgoing eleventh house. Friends start texting, colleagues interrupt with questions or you get sucked down a Facebook rabbit hole just as you were looking up the address of your afternoon appointment. Do yourself a favor and disconnect from the wired world so you can focus and finish your tasks. Your reward? Distraction-free playtime AFTER the job is done.
Some much-needed chill time opens up for you today, as mindful Mercury decamps to Sagittarius and your meditative twelfth house until January 4. First order of business: a calendar review. Are there not-so-pressing appointments that could be canceled or rescheduled for 2019? Clear space for relaxing time with loved ones and some precious solitude! The spirit of forgiveness is in the air as 2018 winds down. Over the coming three weeks, someone who hurt you could reach out to make amends. Be as gracious as possible. Accepting an apology isn’t the same thing as re-engaging. On the flip side, if you need to say “I’m sorry,” summon the courage and give peace a genuine chance.
Your powers of persuasion are at their peak today, Capricorn. Heck, you could sell peppermint mochas to a Starbucks barista! No need to hard-sell anyone, however; just present them with facts and figures so that they can make the right decision for themselves. If you believe in what you're offering, it shouldn't take much more than that to seal the deal. Your authentic confidence will be the clincher, but check your body language all the same. Keep your shoulders back, your head held high, and make direct eye contact with people when you're talking AND listening.
Today’s sweet moon-Neptune mashup in your communication corner adds tenderness to your interactions. A conversation with a friend, sibling or co-worker could start off casual then veer into a surprisingly deep emotional connection. Play with it, Cap! Intentionally let your hair down, open up and sail past the niceties. When someone asks you how you are, try a social experiment. See what happens if you reply, “You know, I’d love to really talk to you about it...do you have time?” This could be the perfect segue to a spontaneous dinner date!
Let yourself off the hook, Capricorn—it’s not your job to rescue capable adults. Saturday's quarter moon in Pisces helps you find the balance between enabling and empowering. You don’t have to turn your back on a friend in need, but you should set clear limits on how much you can give. If it seems like YOU are more concerned with people’s wellbeing than they are, you’ve definitely slipped into savior mode. Take off the superhero’s cape. Simply offering a sympathetic ear and a few words of wisdom is enough. Don’t underestimate the raw force of your emotions once the moon slips into Aries from Saturday night on. If you stuff down feelings, they’ll just come out sideways—and that is sure to get messy. If someone truly offended you, don’t sweep it under the rug; but FIRST, hash it out with a friend who can help you drum up creative solutions. This way, the inevitable heart-to-heart won’t skip a beat.
