In this daily horoscope for Feb. 16, Bustle's resident astrologer, Mecca Woods, founder of My Life Created, shares the astrological events happening today that will affect every zodiac sign. Below, here's a look at how astrology will affect our lives today.

The day gets off to a bumpy start as the aggressive Aries moon squares off with tough Pluto in practical Capricorn in the early afternoon. Under this planetary weather, we could feel frustrated and unable to compromise or let things go easily. The best way to channel this moon-Pluto energy is use it to get clear on what matters. Luckily, the Aries moon teams up with the sun in friendly and innovative Aquarius in the evening. This cosmic combo can help us with finding innovative solutions to our challenges and getting the help or support we need.

By late tonight, the vibe of the day slows down significantly as the moon moves into laidback Taurus. With the moon in Taurus, we should find ourselves in the mood to take it easy and do things that bring us pleasure, like catching up on rest or indulging in a late-night snack. It's also a good time to handle more practical matters or responsibilities.

Read below to see what the stars mean for your zodiac sign today, and make sure to check out your February 2021 monthly horoscope.
