The Moon briefly goes face to face with Mars today. With Mercury also combining with Pluto but squaring Pluto, all this can create a lot of pre-Christmas tension. Try to create some moments of private tranquillity.
With the Sun also coming to the end of its cycle through Sagittarius now, perhaps the hint is to temporarily pause on festive celebrations and focus on any outstanding nitty-gritty details. An early night may prove restorative too! For your FREE Daily Horoscope Sunday 20th December 2015 please see below...
Aries 21 March - 20 April
While the Sun has been in your zone of discovery and adventure this month, you may have enjoyed exploring new subjects and fresh ideas too. Now that it's in the last few degrees of Sagittarius, you might feel like consolidating what you've gained or finding ways to bring extra stimuli to your work or overall lifestyle.
Taurus 21 April - 21 May
As the Moon continues its journey through your spiritual sector, a respite from daily activities might see you making one or two astute observations about your lifestyle and routines. Indeed, its connection with Mars may throw up a warning that perhaps something needs to come back into balance that's currently out of sync.
Gemini 22 May - 21 June
Today, Mercury and Pluto continue their intense interaction. The desire to look into financial or other important matters could reveal information you may have had no knowledge of. It could even positively impact on your circumstances if you decide to make use of it. Before you go ahead be sure your decision is really for the best.
Cancer 22 June - 23 July
As the Moon aligns with the energies of innovation and action today, you may need to think on your feet if things go awry. However, this blend of energies is part of an ongoing scenario that may be pushing you to consider new ideas regarding your future plans - while perhaps making a few key changes to your everyday routines.
Leo 24 July - 23 August
Intense feelings continue to be a part of the overall astral environment. Nevertheless, be determined not to let them dominate the conversation - particularly if you're hoping to reach an agreement or come to a compromise. However, though there's a sharp edge to the day, a fresh perspective might turn things around.
Virgo 24 August - 23 September
If you're set to be out enjoying the holiday mirth, today's planetary backdrop encourages you not to be too frivolous. Whilst you may be aware of your limits, being tempted to splurge and imbibe too freely may actually feel less than uplifting. Finding the right balance can be crucial to enjoying this festive time of year.
Libra 24 September - 23 October
With all the excitement in the air, plus the likelihood of a busy time on the home front, you may have difficulty tuning into absolutely everyone's needs. Saturn's present position suggests you'll take your interactions and responsibilities to others very seriously, but don't let it pulverise your chance to let go and have fun yourself.
Scorpio 24 October - 22 November
Venus, currently in your sign, encourages you to be upfront, even if you're worried about the reaction you'll get to a piece of news or the postponement of an invite - or other arrangement. In this instance, honesty may be better than avoiding a subject. Singleton? You can continue to intrigue more than one person, Scorpio.
Sagittarius 23 November - 21 December
As the Sun in your sign aligns with the Moon in dynamic Aries, you may be ready to embrace today, even if things do get off to a complicated or disruptive start. Indeed, the very animated cosmic focus showing up could help you better deal with any ongoing duties on the home front, or with the pressure of festive tasks.
Capricorn 22 December - 20 January
The presence of Saturn in the spiritual part of your chart can encourage you to dedicate some time to helping out others who may need some support. Indeed, you might get much satisfaction from doing so. It could be a distraction and a welcome break from other matters that might have been consuming your attention.
Aquarius 21 January - 19 February
The idea of change can seem appealing - and to this end you may give considerable thought to how you might make it happen. However, although you might want to get a move on, certain personal limitations could hold you back. Even so, a small step out of your comfort zone can allow you to take that crucial first step.
Pisces 20 February - 20 March
You may need to decide for yourself whether ideas that are being touted are acceptable to you - or not. Perhaps a plan that involves someone who lives nearby or you're associated with needs to be questioned. You could also recoil against someone in the family who tends to be directive or always wants their own way.
