In this daily horoscope for October 7, 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 may be entering all-or-nothing Scorpio late this morning, but love planet Venus is waving her goodbyes at the start of the day and moving into adventure and growth-seeking Sagittarius. With Venus in Sagittarius, we’ll find that our values are driven by freedom, exploration, and our philosophy on life.

While we might be tempted to wallow in the past with this lunation’s stay in Scorpio, especially as the moon faces off with melancholic Saturn in Aquarius by late this evening, Venus in Sagittarius encourages us to let go of our baggage and look for the silver linings. She also reminds us to laugh too. Together, both the moon in Scorpio and Venus in Sagittarius can show us what’s really worth our attention and effort for today: Scorpio is the zodiac sign that highlights our deepest desires and Sagittarius highlights the things that hold profound meaning, so they make for an illuminating pairing.

Read below to see what the stars mean for your zodiac sign today, and make sure to check out your October 2021 monthly horoscope.
