In this October 14 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 completes her stay in dedicated and thoughtful Virgo, which can help us with knocking out our to-do list for the day so we can relax later. With the Moon teaming up with multiple planets in hardworking Capricorn throughout the day, we get the extra oomph we need to follow through on projects and goals. However, with the Moon in Virgo being influenced by Mercury retrograde in Scorpio and kicking off the day in an opposition to confusing Neptune in Pisces, it's important that we stay flexible, move slowly, and avoid committing to new projects.
With Mars retrograde in enthusiastic Aries, agitating things, it could be difficult not to jump headfirst into situations (or our feelings), but the earthy energy in the air asks that we move with a measure of pragmatism and discernment. Meanwhile, as Virgo and Capricorn are signs that often seek to help and support others, we're encouraged to channel any restless energy we may be feeling into doing what we can to help people around us or those in need.
