In this September 16 daily horoscope, Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, the 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.
It's a day for work and productivity, but with the Moon in detail-oriented Virgo, we're called to be thoughtful about the tasks we do and don't take on. The day kicks off with the Virgo Moon teaming up with innovative Uranus in Taurus, giving us the need for something fresh and different. As such, we're encouraged to take an outside-the-box approach in moving forward, especially as tomorrow's New Moon in Virgo approaches, which also asks that we adopt new habits or a new schedule to improve our quality of life.
By the evening, the Virgo Moon teams up with expansive Jupiter in Capricorn, which helps us to achieve a goal or bring a plan to life through small, scalable steps, discipline, and consistency. By later tonight, when the Moon opposes dreamy Neptune in Pisces, we're encouraged to slow down and decompress from all the work done.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Aries (March 21-April 19)

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You might be feeling extra confident today, but keep in mind that true confidence comes from being able to authentically express yourself. When you show up as yourself, the right people will show up for you.

You could feel like an emotional weight has been lifted off of your shoulders today, especially if you've consciously chosen to let something or someone go. By freeing yourself, you can find fulfillment.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Cancer (June 21-July 22)
It's time to consider how you can better utilize your network and connections to others, as there could be opportunity and growth waiting for you. What ideas do you want to bring to life? Enlist people to help you.

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
