In this daily horoscope for Jan. 20, 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.
It will be hard to ignore the intensity in the air today as the planets fight amongst each other. With the moon in fiery Aries for the first half of the day, many of us might feel on edge as aggressive Mars, the planetary ruler of Aries, syncs up with unstable Uranus in Taurus toward the afternoon. As a result, it could be difficult to avoid arguments or misunderstandings, as well as the chance of something shocking or upsetting taking place.
The best way to try and handle the energy of the day is to do what we can to ground and soothe ourselves, especially as the moon moves to stabilizing Taurus in the early afternoon. Though with the Taurus moon facing off with the Sun and tough Saturn in excitable Aquarius in the late afternoon, staying chill won't be easy. We can use any restless or pent-up energy we feel and channel it into tasks that call for creativity and innovation. Since Aquarius favors community, it's a good time to connect with friends and loved ones for mutual support.

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
When you invest in something you love, it's an act of self-reverence and appreciation. Keep this in mind today, especially if the creative urge hits. Self-love is a revolutionary act.
