In this October 2 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 high-energy that yesterday's full moon set off continues today as the Moon remains stationed in fiery and feisty Aries. While this headstrong, ambitious energy can be great for overcoming a challenge or taking charge of a difficult situation, we'll need to be mindful of getting sucked into unnecessary arguments, biting off more than we can chew, or being impulsive or reckless with our decision-making.
However, with the Moon joining forces with angry Mars in Aries and facing off with planets in stern Capricorn, it could be hard to keep tempers and behaviors under control. Luckily, love planet Venus leaves self-focused Leo and enters thoughtful and grounded Virgo by late afternoon. Having Venus stationed in Virgo can help us with being more considerate of each other and contemplative about what we want.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your zodiac sign today, and make sure to check out your October 2020 monthly horoscopes.
