In this daily horoscope for November 17, 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.
Although the moon is in laidback Taurus for the day, it will be hard to relax under today’s cosmic weather. One of the biggest reasons why has to do with the fact that aggressive Mars in Scorpio is locked in a battle with unpredictable Uranus in Taurus all day, bringing a nervous tension to the air. While this Mars-Uranus aspect can be good for initiating change and breaking away from stagnant situations, it can trigger anxious feelings and cause tempers to flare.
With the moon in Taurus conjoined to Uranus in Taurus and at odds with Saturn in community-focused Aquarius towards the second half of the day, we’re pushed to let go of our resistance to change and work together for the sake of progress. As the Taurus moon joins forces with Venus in responsible Capricorn, we’re encouraged to roll up our sleeves and get to work in creating the kind of future or security that we want. That said, doing so will mean facing the facts and working through our fears, especially as the moon opposes Mars in Scorpio by late tonight.

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Gemini (May 21-June 20)

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
You’ve got more going on than you should right now. While it can be uncomfortable to be still or have gaps in your schedule, trust that doing less is actually better for you. Take time off.

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You’re reminded that you’re only one person and that there’s only but so much time in the day to get things done. Today, give yourself time to rest or the permission to ask for help.
