Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, founder of My Life Created, shares every zodiac sign's daily horoscope for January 18.
The energy of the day could feel a bit chaotic and all over the place. That’s because rebellious and unconventional Uranus ends its retrograde and goes forward today in headstrong Taurus. With the planet of change now direct, we can expect some surprising or shocking events to take place.
On a lighter note, there can be both positive and necessary progress to be made today as we’re encouraged to leave the past behind and take on a more future-forward approach. However, with the moon in self-focused Leo making an opposition to community-focused Mercury in Aquarius, we’ll need to be mindful of clashing egos. We’ll also need to be mindful of inflexibility as the Leo moon faces off with Uranus in Taurus by the late evening.
One highlight of the day comes during the late afternoon when the moon in Leo meets up with wounded Chiron in Aries. This cosmic combination encourages us to find healing and comfort in playtime or things that bring us laughter. Under the Leo moon, we’re reminded us to find the light (and in some cases be the light) in the darkness.
