In this daily horoscope for October 8, 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.

We might be feeling more angsty than usual today. One reason for this is because the confident sun meets up with assertive Mars in cooperative Libra early this morning, which highlights the spaces where we need better boundaries, fairness and equality, and less ego. At the same time, the moon is in brooding Scorpio, turning our emotions up tenfold.

The best way to handle the energy of the day is to put our focus on showing up for others while also recognizing when it’s OK to show up for ourselves. The meeting between the moon in Scorpio and compassionate Neptune in Pisces by late this evening encourages us towards kindness and caring for our emotional well-being. We’ll need to be mindful of being too obsessive or rigid as the Scorpio moon faces off with over-the-top Jupiter in Aquarius. Embracing change can help.

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