In this daily horoscope for Feb. 9, 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 finishes out her stay in grounded and practical Capricorn today, putting us in the mood for a slow and steady kind of a pace. If we've been feeling stressed or burned out, the moon in Capricorn encourages us to take some time to find our footing. With the moon teaming up with dreamy Neptune in Pisces in the wee hours of the morning, we can ease into the day rather than rushing into it.

Come the afternoon, the moon teams up with powerful Pluto in Capricorn, which pushes us to confront our fears. This Moon-Pluto combo also lends us the determination we need to tackle a big challenge or an obstacle. Later this evening, the moon leaves Capricorn and enters friendly, innovative Aquarius. With the moon in Aquarius, we're moved to find community, excitement, and the off-beat path.

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