In this October 1 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.
It's a high-energy kind of a day, courtesy of today's Full Moon in fiery and headstrong Aries at 5:05 p.m. ET. Under the influence of this full moon, emotions and frustrations can run high today, namely as aggressive Mars (the planetary ruler of Aries) is still retrograde and facing off with planets in hard-nosed Capricorn. As a result, this full moon calls us to pay attention solely to the things that are important to us and leave behind unnecessary distractions and drama.
For some of us, the Full Moon in Aries could push us to bring an end to a relationship or a situation that devalues or disempowers us, especially as the Moon conjoins Chiron in Aries, highlighting the places where we feel wounded and powerless. While for the rest of us, the full moon could bring something to completion that we've worked super hard to achieve. Still, at the same time, this moon could show us where we may need to work harder or give up entirely. Deciding which way to go not only depends on how badly we want to achieve something, it also depends on whether that goal is in alignment with who we are at our core.
