In this Jan. 7 daily horoscope, 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.

Intensity may be the word of the day as the moon moves into all-or-nothing Scorpio in the wee hours of the morning. The moon starts off the day in an opposition to stubborn Mars in Taurus, followed by a face-off with excitable planets in Aquarius later in the a.m. As a result, tensions could build and explode if we don't take a cautious and patient approach, especially as the moon goes on to oppose unpredictable Uranus in Taurus in the late afternoon.

On the positive side, this cosmic mashup can help us with finding the determination and follow-through needed to move past a difficult challenge. With Uranus in Taurus in the mix, we'll need to be open to change and being innovative in our approach forward. Overall, we're reminded that while change can be difficult, the results will be worth it if we're willing to make the effort.
