In this Nov. 17 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.
The moon leaves happy-go-lucky Sagittarius by the late morning and enters hardworking and determined Capricorn. With the moon in Capricorn, the mood of the day turns sober and serious as we're encouraged to make pragmatic decisions and focus on our responsibilities. At the same time, while the moon is in Capricorn, it could be a good time for doing anything that helps us to get grounded and centered in our bodies.
Some grounded vibes could come in handy today as Mercury in all-or-nothing Scorpio opposes unstable Uranus in Taurus, which could bring some shocking or unexpected news. On the positive side, the Mercury-Uranus combo could be good for anything that requires an innovative approach or outside-of-the-box thinking. By the evening, when the Capricorn moon faces off with wounded Chiron in Aries, we'll need to be mindful of allowing past hurts, self-criticism, or a lack of confidence stop us in our tracks.
