Let's Get This Party Started: Weekend Horoscopes December 20-22

Venus enters Aquarius today, which means the weekend just got a lot more exciting. From social butterflies to sleepy homebodies, everyone is about to kick things up a couple notches. Prepare yourself for the madness by checking out our weekend horoscopes.


Venus entering Aquarius this weekend means one thing, Aries: your social calendar is about to pop off. For the next few days you’ll find that you suddenly have limitless energy for entertaining and given the time of year, it didn’t come a minute too soon. Take advantage of this boon and be sure to light up the room at every event you attend. Going home for the holidays inevitably means running into people from your past (both good and bad), so you might as well make it worth their while.


There’s good news on the horizon, Taurus. All your hard work is about to pay off in a big way, but under one condition: that you keep at it. It can be tempting to abandon work for a seemingly limitless supply of Christmas cookies and mulled wine, but you’ve got to stay strong. Months of patience will finally lead to what you’ve been waiting for, so avoid the peppermint schnapps until you’ve achieved what you set out to do. After that, though? All bets are off.


Spontaneity is in the air this weekend, Gemini. Venus entering Aquarius is going to inspire you to drop everything in the pursuit of a grand adventure. And you know what? Maybe it’s worth pursuing. You’ve had a hard year and have more than earned the right to blow off a little steam. This weekend, consider shirking responsibility and doing whatever your heart desires. What are the holidays for if not a little indulgence?


Love is in the air, Cancer! Or at least, the newfound patience and desire to work for it is. Venus entering Aquarius means that you’re going to suddenly find yourself ready to settle down, or take an existing relationship to the next level. Don’t fight it! Let yourself be swept up in the madness and see where it takes you. After all, ‘tis the season to be merry—and if that means hooking up with your high school crush, so be it.


You may find yourself feeling extra needy this weekend, Leo. Don’t worry, that’s just Venus settling into Aquarius and stirring up some formerly stifled emotions. Let yourself lean on those close to you, and don’t be ashamed to admit that you might be in need of some extra TLC. Even you are allowed to let your guard down every once in a while.


You’re getting your groove back this weekend, Virgo. You may have found yourself feeling entirely unmotivated lately and chalked it up to pre-holiday procrastination. Well now that Venus has entered Aquarius, you’re back in business. Take advantage of this sudden onslaught of productivity by finishing all those projects you’d been putting off. Two weeks off will be all the sweeter knowing you’re coming back to a clean to-do list.


Time to put away the groutfit and break out the party dress, Libra. This weekend marks the beginning of your return to society, something you’ve been desperately avoiding these past few weeks. There’s no better time to make an entrance than during peak holiday season. Treat yourself to a little extra glam and then hit the town. It’s time to close out 2019 in style.


There’s nothing wrong with taking a break, Scorpio. The holiday season has already worn you out, so this weekend is the perfect time to recharge before diving back into the swing of things. Invite your friends over for a chill night on the couch or, better yet, turn off your phone and get in some quality you time. The world will survive without you for two days, but you may not last through one more Christmas party without a break.


If you’re looking for a sign to let loose this weekend, consider this it, Sagittarius. Just because your birthday season is coming to a close, it doesn’t mean that it’s time to dive back into bed. You’ve still got energy to expend! So dust off those party shoes for one last hurrah, and make sure to leave a bottle of water by your bed. You can sleep when you’re dead, right?


It’s going to feel like life is pulling you in two direction this weekend, Capricorn. While it may feel easy to succumb to one or the other, we highly recommend you opt for a little balance. Your all-or-nothing personality may reject this notion, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try it. What is the holiday season about, if not compromise?


You’re no stranger to being the center of attention, Aquarius. In fact, it’s a position you inhabit with glee. This weekend will be no different—if anything, it’ll be even more over-the-top than usual. We urge you to be sure to take care of yourself while you’re out entertaining the entire town, because you of all people know how exhausting the limelight can be. You don’t have to dim your light, but do be sure to recharge it.


You know what you’ve earned, Pisces? Some peace and quiet. After what feels like a lifetime of entertaining, organizing, and just general socializing, it’s time to take a break. Use this weekend to kick off your self-imposed exile. Your Netflix queue is overflowing, your bed is calling, and that takeout isn’t going to order itself. Feel free to go fully off the grid without any guilt, and then consider returning to the real world come Monday. Or, you know, don’t.
