Your Christmas 2023 Horoscope Is Full Of Romance

Mistletoe, WYA?

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and not even Mercury retrograde can interrupt all the holiday cheer. Though communication may be a little inconsistent this season, the sun’s recent shift into the cardinal earth sign of Capricorn is making it easy to take your long-term goals more seriously. While the hard-working vibes of the winter solstice may not exactly sound magical, your Christmas 2023 horoscope is the perfect gift for delulu girls everywhere.

As the sun continues its journey through the Saturn-ruled sign of Capricorn, you’ll be motivated to tackle the responsibilities that require increased self-discipline and unwavering focus. However, as Christmas nears, you’ll want to lean into your intuitive and creative side, temporarily relieving you of the serious duties that come along with the winter solstice.

On Dec. 25, Venus in Scorpio will form a supportive trine to Neptune in Pisces, igniting the imagination and inspiration of every zodiac sign. It’ll be easy to visualize the relationships you crave, as well as the artistic endeavors you’ve felt called to explore. During this transit, there is no ceiling in place when it comes to the pleasures you can experience. And, since Venus is currently in a water sign, you’ll feel more connected to your innermost needs, and fulfilling them will feel possible.

Here’s how every zodiac sign will be affected by the astrology on Christmas Day:
