In this daily horoscope for February 23, 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 moon remains stationed in tenderhearted Cancer, spotlighting our feelings and the need for nurturing and belonging. With the moon teaming up with dreamy Neptune in Pisces in the afternoon, we could find ourselves feeling sleepier than usual. The good news is that naptime is best had under a Cancer moon. At the same time, this Moon-Neptune combo can heighten our sensitivity, making it necessary to seek out things that soothe and comfort us.

By later tonight, the moon teams up with Mars in Taurus, which could be helpful for any activity that involves caring for others, managing money, or slowing down and tuning into our bodies. A short while later, the Cancer moon makes an opposition to power-hungry Pluto in Capricorn, which could dredge up some uncomfortable feelings. The best way to handle this Moon-Pluto combo is to channel the energy into anything that requires passion or determination.

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