In this October 5 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 tender and nurturing moon completes her stay in pleasure-seeking Taurus today, giving us the opportunity to indulge in some soothing, feel-good vibes. After the intensity of the last few days, we can take our time in enjoying the last few hours of this Taurus moon before she slips into busy Gemini by late tonight. As such, there's no need to rush into the day. We can take our time.
The moon in Taurus also teams up with planets in grounded and stable Capricorn today, which can also help us with taking some time out to get still and find our bearings. Though for those of us that prefer to use this earthy energy to work, this Taurus-Capricorn mashup can give us the focus and follow-through needed to handle important business and deal with difficult tasks.
