What does it Mean to ‘Be on the Horns of Dilemma’?

“This new job offer has put me on the horns of a dilemma — if I accept it, I will have to move to another city, if I don’t accept it, I am losing a great career opportunity.”

It means that I am confused because both the outcomes are undesirable to me. I don’t want to move to another city, nor do I want to lose such a great career opportunity.
