The best, and possibly only good thing, about the shortest day of the year starting this weekend is that now we’re on the uphill climb, slowly getting more and more daylight each day. I can already feel my Vitamin D levels rising and my mood greatly improving. This weekend is also the official start to Capricorn season. It’s okay to indulge in the practical. Don’t go outside when it’s cold AF for any reason. Drink the rest of the vodka because it goes bad if you open it. Block your ex because if Santa won’t bring him coal, he certainly deserves the coldest of shoulders. Here are your weekend horoscopes for December 21-23:
The Moon in Cancer warms your cold heart this weekend. It also gives you major nesting vibes. You’re craving all the creature comforts the holiday season brings: warm socks, fuzzy blankets, hot drinks that may or may not involve a splash of something out of the liquor cabinet. Make a resolution for the rest of 2018 that you won’t be wearing any pants with zippers or buttons. Do you feel an Instagram pic of your feet next to a fire and beautifully decorated hearth coming on, or is that just me?
If you don’t already have gifts for your besties, you’ll probably feel the urge to run to the nearest artisanal candle store and buy everyone you know a little something. Betches love candles. The Moon’s glow in Cancer shines in your house of Friendship. Your desire to be social and show your friends you care is at an all-time high this weekend. If you’re not really a gift-giving person, make it a goal to make plans and actually follow through with them while you and your friends have some time off.
Don’t fret over the cash you have to spend to be social this weekend. Every dollar spent will be worth it. Somehow. I’m pretty sure. This is an excellent weekend for making the right connections to pursue your goals, whether that be securing the hottest date ever for New Years Eve or networking with someone who can help you get the job of your dreams. Wear semi-comfortable shoes and mix with diet Redbull so you have the energy and stamina to stick around when the conversations starts heating up.
The Full Moon in your sign this weekend gives you energy and power. Put that burst of energy to use by accomplishing all the stuff you didn’t get to this entire year. Clean out your closet, throw away the college Halloween costume that would take an act of God to fit into again. Delete old emails and phone numbers of anyone with the last name of “Hinge”. Actually vacuum instead of just thinking that you need to every time you step on an extremely sharp and invisible mystery object on your bedroom carpet.
TBH, the Sun moving into Capricorn is kind of a major killjoy for you. Your practical, logical side takes over this weekend. Since you don’t want to have to diet like a maniac and hit the gym with sad, gross resolutioners come January 1, you’ll probably start considering cutting back on the festive treats. You might want to trade the Christmas cookies for crunches, hot chocolate for hot yoga, candy canes for carrots. Need I go on?
No fake friends for the Virgo betches this weekend. The planets pull you to spend time with people with whom you share a genuine connection. Like, maybe your high school friends want to get together for drinks while everyone is home. That’s nice and all, but you haven’t talked to any of these people in years and probably shouldn’t care to start now. Did they bail you out when you spent all your rent money on mozzarella sticks and Ugg boots in college? No, that was your mom and dad. Spend time with them instead.
Even though the long nights of winter are a downer, you won’t be in a horrible mood heading into the weekend as a Mercury-Jupiter merger makes you optimistic. No longer will you tell your friends you don’t want to go out with them to prowl for dudes because guys are only on the apps. Instead, you’ll be motivated to wrangle your girls into a push-up bra and head out with the crew. You’ll start seeing the world as your oyster instead of a horrible hellscape on the imminent path toward destruction. I mean, also stay off Twitter to keep that sunny outlook in tact, even if it’s just for the weekend.
The Sun in Capricorn in your house of communication makes you chattier than normal. You usually have no problem keeping everyone’s secrets on the DL, including your own. This weekend, though, you’ll be more likely to experience foot-in-mouth disorder. Watch what you say and who you say it around, especially if you’re drinking. Whatever your truth serum is, avoid that. No tequila for the Scorpio this weekend!
An intense, romantic weekend could be in store for you and your significant other. Everything won’t necessarily be lovey-dovey. A fight or argument could lead to a resolution that not only brings you both closer together, but also gets a little hot and steamy. They say makeup sex is the best for a reason. For a single Sagittarius, don’t fear. It’s not about labels and things going exactly as planned this weekend. Let the chips fall where they may.
There’s, like, a lot going on for you right now. The Sun in your sign brings you loads of attention. The Full Moon in Cancer makes you lovable. If your friends turn down an invitation to do something with you this weekend, it’s probably because they already have plans to be at your surprise party. How could anyone say no to you? Like, really, if someone is “busy” or “sick” or “already has plans” is seriously disturbed.
The end of your Zodiac year and the calendar year is all about tying up loose ends. This weekend you’ll start wrapping up what you’re leaving behind in preparation for what’s to come. That could mean your relationship red flags turn into deal breakers over the holidays. Maybe your Christmas bonus at work isn’t what you expected and you feel you could be more highly valued at a different company. There’s a lot to learn in the next two weeks.
A Pisces usually isn’t the most festive in the room, but the Sun in Capricorn makes you weirdly flamboyant. Prepare to pull every shiny, sparkly, or fuzzy article of clothing out from your closet. If there’s an ugly sweater to be worn, you’ll be wearing it. If there’s “Santa Baby” or “All I Want For Christmas” on the karaoke machine, you’ll sing it. With the Full Moon in Cancer, you’re likely to turn a few heads. Welcome the attention like a friend showing up unexpectedly at your door with booze in hand.

Friday, December 21 is the official start of winter, but it’s also the beginning of Capricorn season. Don’t be surprised if you start feeling less holly jolly and more get-to-work-y. Capricorns are known for practicality, ambition, and wisdom. They can also be pessimistic, cautious, and stubborn. Watch a Hallmark Christmas movie, go look at some pretty lights and watch somebody fall on their ass while ice skating. That will keep your sprits bright for sure. Here are your weekly horoscopes for December 17-21:
The Sun is at the top of your chart starting this week, casting you in a favorable light to all the important people in your life. Bosses will want to give you bigger holiday bonuses. The bartender will give you stronger pours. Be on guard for frenemies, though. Your good luck is likely to bring out the haters. If you feel the bad vibes, move the eff on.
The travel bug bites you when the sun changes signs at the end of the week. This is great if you have holiday vacation plans to somewhere tropic, exotic, and Instagrammable. This is not so great if your plans are traveling to some frigid wasteland like Cleveland for your family’s Christmas. I guess you need to make the best of any situation and really come up with some creative captions to keep that like count high.
Passion is the name of the game for you in the next four weeks. Whether you’re getting hot and heavy between the sheets, completing a project at work you really enjoy, or doing some volunteering for a cause you actually care about, your efforts will be blessed. As for things you don’t enjoy, don’t even bother. It’s not worth serving Christmas dinners to the less fortunate if you’re going to be a grinch the whole time. They really don’t need that kind of negativity in their lives.
The Sun changes signs at the end of the week, moving directly opposite your sign. The Sun, which serves as your energy source, being so far away means you’ll need more rest and sleep. This can also make you a little down on yourself and critical. Instead of calling yourself fat and lazy, think of this as a time where you can focus on self improvement. I mean, after the holidays of course. And probably in February when the New Year’s resolutioners have lost their motivation. So, yeah, enjoy your nap. You’ve got like, two months before you have to go back to the gym.
Leos are practically made for the holiday season. All the sparkles and lights and attention and glitz are right up your alley. Still, you have a lot to do and are running out of time to do it. Channel your inner Santa and work on organization. Make some lists and check them twice. Get all your sh*t done with time to spare so you have more time to party and get gifts and free alcohol from other people.
As a sign of service, all of the holiday charity and donations and bell ringing are right up your alley. Of course, the attention and accolades for your efforts are nice, but that’s not why you do it. Since you’re being so good to others right now, you deserve to be a little naughty for yourself. Hook up with a hottie. Drink the full-fat eggnog. And buy yourself something nice. You earned it.
The Sun changing signs this week gives you more opportunities to do what you do best: socialize. Of course, when they weather is beyond frightful, it’s actually okay to stay in. I mean, don’t stay in by yourself like a recluse. Instead, make the party come to you. Sure, you might have to clean your bathroom and hide your valuables. But the drinks are cheaper and you don’t have to worry about whether or not you need to bring a coat.
The Sun moves to Capricorn this week. That’s nice. What really matters to you is that Venus is in your sign, making you feel romantic, loved, and beautiful. Sure, you need to do some shopping for other people, but it’s actually the best time of year to buy clothes for yourself. You’ll find things that fit you perfectly and you’ll have the discernment from Capricorn to know whether you’ll wear it more than once.
You’re in the business of being good at business. Whether it’s scoring a big deal at work, negotiating what you and your boyfriend watch on Netflix, or talking your landlord out of the late fee on rent, things are really going to go your way. You also get a helping hand from chatty Mercury. Just beware, Mercury can make you a little too talkative. Don’t give a way all your secrets—it’s hard to keep the upper hand that way.
Happy Birthday, Capricorn! Sure, you kind of get screwed by having a birthday so close to the major holidays, but the good luck the Sun brings to your sign will make up for that… sort of. Use any time off you have in the coming weeks to recharge for your personal year ahead. Pamper yourself with R & R and getting rid of negative energy. Delete numbers of people who bring you down and when they text you, say your iPhone backup failed or something.
The Sun is in hiding in your chart starting this Friday. This is the time you need to use to refocus your goals for the year ahead. Do you want to stay single for a full year? Make it a goal to avoid all f*ckboys and resist downloading dating apps. Do you want a job you don’t hate? Make a goal to go back to school or, like, get a resume that isn’t totally embarrassing. They new year is all about you, and this is the time to figure out what that looks like.
Your popularity increases over the next four weeks with the Sun in Capricorn. Borrow some of that Capricorn discernment when deciding who to spend your time with. Like, don’t spend all your time off with a guy you just met in order to have him ghost in January. Don’t accept party invites from people who you don’t actually even like. Your time is your most valuable resource and all that good stuff.
