Your daily horoscopes for Monday December 4, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Monday December 4
Passion! Lust! Intrigue! Magnetic Venus sweeps into Scorpio and your sizzling and sensual eighth house, turning up the heat in your most intimate relationships until December 29. Whether you’re single or coupled, the main thing YOU should focus on is feeling sexy in your own skin. Refresh your wardrobe, treat yourself to a long massage or just slow down. Moving at a more languorous tempo helps you feel more in the moment—just where you want to be to notice all the attention coming your way.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Monday December 4
Closeness breeds togetherness as your harmonizing ruler, Venus, shimmies into Scorpio and activates your seventh house of relationships until December 29. Make bonding with the VIPs in your life a top social priority. Petty arguments dissipate as you morph from stubborn Bull to diplomat under this parity-loving transit. Coupled Toros, indulge in pleasurable pastimes: Head to the enoteca to try a flight of award-winning wines or dress up and hit a premiere. If you’re single, mingle. You’re primed to attract someone with long-term potential before NYE.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Monday December 4
No need to stand near the twinkle lights to give yourself a proper glow-up. Today, radiant Venus grapevines into Scorpio, where she’ll be loving up your sixth house of well-being and fitness until December 29. Suddenly your yoga bag is your favorite accessory and that cloud of locally harvested kale at the farmer’s market looks especially fetching. Forget about touching up your roots—roast some root vegetables instead (or do both!). Decluttering and beautifying your workspace also adds serenity. Beauty is your muse.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Monday December 4
Zing! Romance-aholic Venus leaves your frumpy fourth house and moves into Scorpio, your zone of passion and glamour. One minute you’re on the verge of making your vintage apron a trending fashion piece; the next, you can’t dress up and hit the town fast enough. This Venusian intervention makes you quite the bon vivant until December 29, not to mention a champion coquette. Infuse your end-of-year look with some old Hollywood glamour—then get out and flirt like a silver-screen star since your witty banter will be well received. Coupled Crabs should dot the calendar with some whimsical date nights, sparing no expense or pleasure.
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Monday December 4
Ready, set, relax. Lovely Venus snuggles into Scorpio and your fourth house of home, family and foundations. Turn your attention to your castle, Lion, and ensure it’s appointed in regal yet restful style. With Venus here until December 29, you’ve got your eye on chic new home accessories, a printed duvet cover or even a lush, velvet-upholstered Chesterfield. (Picture yourself sprawled across it for a glamorous photo shoot. Totally worth the investment.) Improving relationships with close friends and relatives is also favored now. Let’s hear it for your pride!
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Monday December 4
What are friends for, Virgo? Just about everything now. With pleasurable Venus in your social third house until December 29, you’ll enjoy warm conversations, mind-opening experiences and memorable times with your crew. Rather than engage in one-sided friendships, focus on relationships that have a mutual give-and-take. Since the third house rules communication, look at the message you’re putting out—through your own speech, marketing materials or social media. Make your presentation sparkle. Two is the magic number during this interactive phase. Explore synergies over long cappuccino meetings or hold a brainstorming sesh at your favorite boulangerie, decadent pastries and all.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Monday December 4
Coco Chanel once said, “A woman who doesn’t wear perfume has no future.” While you might disagree (mildly), your ruling planet, Venus—goddess of love and beauty—whets your appetite for luxury. Between now and December 29, Venus is in Scorpio, your posh second house of material pleasures. You want to enjoy the finer things with your sweetie now. Single Libras could meet someone through work or at an industry event. It’s a great time to attract more prosperity overall, so channel it by surrounding yourself with beauty and abundance.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Monday December 4
You’re looking rather alluring, aren’t you, Scorpio? Love planet Venus shimmies into Scorpio until December 29, giving you extra dazzle and magnetism. If November was something of a dud in the romance department, fear not: You’ll more than make up for it now. Beautifying Venus makes you quite the head-turner, perhaps inspiring you to update your image. Check out an up-and-coming designer’s capsule collection or change your hair color. If Scorpios love anything, it’s to keep people guessing! You’re always ahead of the sartorial curve, so try some avant-garde new looks.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Monday December 4
Is it time to let go with love? Venus, planet of harmony, is in Scorpio until December 29, lending its gracious touch to your twelfth house of closure, healing and forgiveness. Holding onto a grudge or past hurt is only imprisoning you, Sagittarius. As the saying goes, resentment is like drinking poison and hoping the other person dies. Perhaps you’re grasping at an unrequited torch and realize it’s time to gently snuff it out rather than clinging to that last shred of hope. Since the twelfth house rules illusions, some buried issues or resentments could surface in your personal life. Be mindful not to play the victim—everyone had a role in this situation. You’ll feel most empowered if you take responsibility for your part of the dynamic.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Monday December 4
The more the merrier! Harmonizer Venus sashays into Scorpio, your eleventh house of group activity. You glow in the company of good friends, and you’re more open than usual to meeting new people rather than sticking to your same-old circle. Feeling jealous or competitive with a nemesis in your industry? Don’t hate; collaborate. Find a way to bring your skills together for a win-win. Or team up with a group of avant-garde thinkers, and you’ll create your own movement. There’s plenty of room for everyone to shine.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Monday December 4
Unpack that power suit and get ready to rub shoulders with the VIPs. Charming Venus spends the rest of the month in Scorpio, your ambitious tenth house, lending your career aspirations some extra magnetism. You could score a promotion or find yourself mingling with the top brass, perhaps via an exclusive invitation. Don’t snub an industry event or an awards banquet—you never know who might be sitting next to you at that $500-a-plate dinner. That connection could be worth far more than the prime rib entree, Aquarius. If you’re already in a powerful position, express gratitude to the people who make it all possible or help someone rise through the ranks.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Monday December 4
Seek happiness in unexpected avenues—or far outside your usual comfort zone. Today, romantic Venus moves into Scorpio and your ninth house of global connections, travel and adventure. Limits begone! Between now and December 29, freedom is your aphrodisiac. You’re eager to connect with eclectic people who introduce you to new experiences and perspectives. Feeling stir-crazy in a relationship? Plan a romantic vacation a deux or learn a foreign language together to prep for an international getaway. Single Pisces could embark on a sizzling affair with someone from another country or culture. As long as you both speak le language of love, it’s all good!
