In this September 17 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 an auspicious day for implementing well-thought out plans and initiating carefully crafted projects thanks to today's New Moon in hardworking and detailed-oriented Virgo at 7 a.m. ET. Before the new moon arrives, the day begins with a face-off between Mercury in creative Libra and Jupiter in ambitious Capricorn, which pushes us to think big.
However, with active Mars retrograde in headstrong Aries and the Sun and Moon in Virgo teaming up with multiple planets in Capricorn (including tough Saturn), we're called to exercise patience, determination, and precision in getting plans or ideas off the ground. The New Moon in Virgo reminds us that if we want to see change or progress, we can't afford to give up or take a half-hearted approach.
By the mid-afternoon, the Moon moves into partnership-oriented Libra. Following on the heels of the new moon, the Moon in Libra encourages us to team up and partner with others in achieving our goals and do what we can to return the favor. At the same time, the Libra Moon also encourages us to tend to our important relationships with the attention, care, and follow-up they need.
