Your daily horoscopes for Tuesday December 19, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Tuesday December 19
Gentle reminder, Ram: The metaverse wasn’t built in a day! As today’s quarter moon in Pisces shines its balancing beams into your twelfth house of surrender, you may have no choice BUT to wave a white flag. The world won’t come to an end if you don’t crush that self-imposed deadline in time for the holidays or get your decorations picture-perfect before the family pulls in for a visit. And guess what, Aries? People aren’t expecting that from you. So ease up on the pressure and pile on the self-care!
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Tuesday December 19
Is someone on the team killing the dream? Your first inclination might be to kick them out of Club Toro, but as the quarter moon shimmers in boundary-dissolving Pisces, you have an opportunity to view the situation from a totally different perspective. What appears to be mutiny could actually be a fresh approach that’s worth considering. Tenacity is your strength, Bull, but you might discover that you’ve been stubbornly cleaving to an outmoded way of doing things. Pull the “rebel” aside and give them a chance to explain their objections.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Tuesday December 19
Are your efforts bringing a decent enough payoff, Gemini? Take a moment to assess your progress as today’s illuminating quarter moon shines into Pisces and your tenth house of success. If you’re not making the impact you’re capable of or the numbers aren’t adding up, a small adjustment might be enough to make a noteworthy improvement. Good news! You don’t have to do MORE (as if that’s humanly possible!) or change your entire personal brand. See what happens if you narrow your focus. When you throw your sizable energy behind ONE goal (instead of 15), miracles can happen!
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday December 19
Recently you swigged from a giant cup of truth serum and read someone the riot act. But in your “call it like I see it” zeal, did you leave their ego in shreds? Odds are, you’re not feeling great about it. Today’s quarter moon in Pisces, the sign of forgiveness, gives you a chance to make any necessary amends. Turns out, that puffed-up person was compensating for major insecurities…and you were so triggered that you totally couldn’t see it. Forgive yourself first, Cancer, then do what you can to patch things over. You might have to step up to the bat a few times, but take the first swing at a mea culpa today.
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday December 19
Much as you love a matching set, Leo, today’s quarter moon in Pisces and your possessive eighth house sounds the alarm. Are you sacrificing too much of your individual identity to be part of a twosome or demanding that level of allegiance from someone in your life? Being the center of each others’ universe is a lofty romantic concept. When it plays out in real time, however, it can snuff out intimacy and make you each feel controlled. Give yourself (and the people in your life!) a little breathing room today…or take it if you need space. All hearts will grow fonder in the process.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday December 19
Relationship fireworks—or smoke and mirrors? As the quarter moon in Pisces sends its equalizing energy into your seventh house of partnerships, it serves a reality check about someone you had put on a pedestal. Everyone’s humanity will make an appearance sooner or later. Whether you like what you’re seeing or not, Virgo, take an honest appraisal of the situation. The two of you may be oceans apart when it comes to an important issue. While this isn’t necessarily a deal breaker, drop anchor and see if you can arrive at some sort of consensus—before you drift further apart.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday December 19
In your eagerness to transform an area of your life, have you set an impossible ideal? Today’s moderating quarter moon in Pisces shatters the illusion of perfection that you’ve been laboring under. Comparing yourself to a filtered Instagram ideal is a setup, Libra. FYI, nobody eats a perfectly plated #GirlDinner or does choreographed family dances on TikTok every night. When it comes to creating new habits, slow and steady growth is usually the kind that lasts. Revise your plans so that you don’t burn out before you even see the first signs of progress. If it takes a little longer to reach the finish line, so be it. At least you know you’ll make it there!
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Tuesday December 19
You’re not the most effusive soul, Scorpio, but today’s quarter moon in poetic Pisces could find you serving the sappiest of sweet talk. Don’t stem the tide of your feelings—or censor your gushy sentiment. This revelatory energy might make you feel vulnerable, but relationships can’t advance to the next level if you never show your hand. Then again, have you been a little TOO available lately? Switch it up! A game of cat-and-mouse can keep the magic alive.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Tuesday December 19
Fluff up the pillows and stow your suitcase away. Today’s quarter moon nests in Pisces and your domestic fourth house, turning down your nomadic instincts. Spend some time feathering (or Feng Shui’ing) Camp Archer. Even if you’re decorating with items from your travels, you want home to feel more like a sanctuary than a stopover between your global expeditions. A relative or roomie might need extra attention or help sorting out household affairs. You don’t have to drop everything on demand, but make yourself available before it gets too late.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Tuesday December 19
The line between “enabling” and “empowering” SHOULD be as wide as a country mile. But under today’s quarter moon in sacrificial Pisces, it looks razor-thin to your eye. Still, Capricorn, you want to land on the right side of the matter, the one least likely to drain your reserves. When you find yourself reaching for your superhero’s cape, stop and pivot! Technically, it might be faster and easier for you to “just handle it.” But will you be setting a bad precedent and creating dependencies or cheating someone out of a teachable moment? Show them the ropes instead!
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Tuesday December 19
If you’ve been doling out more tough love than a Peloton instructor, you might want to soften your approach under today’s quarter moon in compassionate Pisces. People don’t always need a pep talk. Sometimes, they just want a safe space to let it all out. Do you owe someone an apology for reading them like a paperback? While you only had someone’s best interests in mind, your heavy-handed approach took the wind out of their sails. It’s never too late to apologize and let them know how much you actually appreciate their efforts. Acknowledgement is medicine!
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Tuesday December 19
What’s missing from the winning formula? YOU, Pisces. As the harmonizing quarter moon lands in YOUR sign today, it’s time to write yourself back into the script. In your desire to keep others happy, you’ve lost sight of your autonomous needs and desires. Don’t be afraid to insert your opinion into the mix today, even (and especially!) if it diverges from the group consensus. That said, it might be easier to break off on your own. An independent exploration can be liberating!
