Your daily horoscopes for Wednesday December 20, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Wednesday December 20
Boundaries! Watch out for user-friendly types who try to hit you up for a loan or probe into your financial situation today. Have a ready reply to shut them down. With generous Venus at loggerheads with unpredictable Uranus across your financial axis, it’s hard to know WHAT might come down the pecuniary pike. Before these planets make an exact opposition tomorrow, make a list of what you actually NEED. (And do it before you start adding a million last-minute deals to your cart.) Check all your bills and statements to make sure there’s no random errors or forgotten expenses.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday December 20
Come here…now go away? Your cosmic ruler, Venus, is in your partnership realm, and today, she’s inching into a near-opposition with independent Uranus in your sign. This could cause a “404 error” in a key relationship—or bring someone totally new into your orbit. But bottom line: Even if you feel a strong attraction, you could easily shift into mixed-signal mode without meaning to manipulate anyone. Preemptively let people know what your interest level is so you don’t inflict irreparable damage.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday December 20
With easygoing Venus in your wellness corner getting a zap from electrifying Uranus in your subconscious zone, you could be feeling a bit on edge without knowing why. You may not be able to get to the bottom of this—because there might not be a “bottom.” So just try to flow with whatever sensations or emotions come up. Instead of Googling “attachment styles,” and pathologizing yourself, do a little free-writing in your journal to see if spontaneous outpourings and associations reveal anything.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday December 20
Don’t give too much credence to your fickle feelings today, Cancer. Thanks to a battle between Venus in your passionate fifth house and wild-card Uranus, your emotions might be all over the map. You could be intensely drawn to someone only to find out, moments later, that they’re not even close to meeting your basic standards. And it runs both ways: A new acquaintance could ghost you after forming what you THOUGHT was a promising connection. But then again, maybe they’re just busy with family. Wait a few days before jumping to conclusions.
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday December 20
Abrupt changes could throw a wrench in your plans today as wild-card Uranus stares down agreeable Venus. Just as you’re brewing your pour-over, you could get called in for a work shift or a family member could send up an SOS. If you have to alter a pre-existing plan with someone and the relationship is already on shaky ground, this could do real damage. A promise is a promise, so if you absolutely must break it, find a tactful way of letting them know—and don’t be too surprised if they overreact. Give ‘em a few days to calm before you try to make amends.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday December 20
Keep that over-the-knee boot out of your mouth today, Virgo. With diplomatic Venus in your communication center, you might feel like you know exactly how to package a message. Yet Venus is getting zapped by radical Uranus in your “honest to a fault” ninth house, which could give your words an unintended sharp edge. You might also get a little carried away with the truth-telling and veer into territory better left untrampled. It can help to write down what you plan to say before you unleash. And if you’re unsure, rehearse it with your most honest friend first.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday December 20
An insecurity flare-up could catch you off-guard today as your ruler, tender Venus, gets caught in the crosshairs of impulsive Uranus in your zone of intense emotions. If you’re feeling unappreciated or ignored, be careful you don’t lash out at people. For one thing, you might be projecting a scenario that bears no resemblance to what the other person is experiencing. For another, by taking your frustration out on them, you could lose their sympathy or even burn the bridge.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Wednesday December 20
You might need to use a secret decoder ring to unscramble some of the mixed signals that are inevitable under today’s muddling opposition between passionate Venus in your sign and chaotic Uranus in your relationship realm. As the diplomat of the solar system, Venus will do anything to keep the peace, but the erratic vibes you’re feeling are probably beyond your control. Try to keep your anger and frustration in check because there will be a strong temptation to go nuclear on a perpetually annoying person. Not a good look, Scorpio!
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Wednesday December 20
Where did your chill go, Sagittarius? An unsettling face-off between provocateur Uranus and mellow Venus in your soothing twelfth house could set your teeth on edge. You might deliberately be laying low, trying to catch up on work when someone invades your space, intent on getting your attention (and maybe pushing your buttons while they’re at it). It won’t take much to fire up your temper, so do your best to not engage with them. Respond if you MUST, but avoid taking any of the triggering bait.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Wednesday December 20
Be careful who you confide in today, Capricorn. Or maybe just keep anything remotely sensitive in the vault. A drama-dredging angle between amicable and wrench-throwing Uranus could make you susceptible to the manipulations of a fair-weather friend or an out-and-out frenemy. People are acting out their issues, and someone could look you straight in the eye and project all their baggage right onto you. Rather than expend a ton of energy trying to figure out who you can trust, just keep the tea in the pot!
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Wednesday December 20
Can you build a little flextime into your schedule today? With your ruler, spontaneous Uranus, getting lured off-course by languid Venus, efforts to stick to a rigid agenda will only stress you out. You might not be able to go full “holiday mode” yet, but honor your need to move at your own pace, no matter how erratic. And try not to lose it on people (especially family) for “demanding” your attention when you are in focus mode. Before you zone out, let them know you need privacy.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday December 20
Pause before you publish! You might be shocked by how people try to twist an innocent comment or post. But you’re likely to be misread for the next couple days, thanks to a nerve-racking face-off between tactful Venus in your candid ninth house and disruptive Uranus in your communication center. If that hasn’t happened (yet), make it your business to carefully review every emoji you’re about to text and every social media blurb you’re planning to share. Better idea: Save it to drafts and don’t risk getting your words misconstrued.
