In this daily horoscope for October 22, 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.
As the sun spends its last hours in balance-seeking Libra and the moon spends the day in laid-back Taurus, we’re encouraged to take it as easy as possible. However, that might be difficult to do as ambitious Mars in Libra faces off with power-hungry Pluto in Capricorn during the first half of the day. Under this kind of Mars-Pluto combination, personal boundaries and limitations must be respected. Otherwise, we could end up overdoing it or pushing things too far. That said, as some conflicts or confrontations are unavoidable, this cosmic pairing can help us with standing up for ourselves or others if necessary.
By the second half of the day, the moon faces off with expansive Jupiter in Aquarius and teams up with powerful Pluto in Capricorn. If we’re in need of a second wind to get through the afternoon slump, this cosmic combination can help us with finding the energy and motivation to finish out the day strong.
