In this September 9 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.
With the Moon in fast-paced Gemini and the Sun in busy Virgo, we may be looking to stay busy and on-the-go too. Though with ambitious and action-oriented Mars beginning its two-month retrograde in enthusiastic Aries, we're pushed to do things at a much slower pace. When Mars goes retrograde, it's usually a time that's best used for taking a time out and reassessing where we're investing our energy. We also might feel more frustrated or impatient as things slow down, making it even more important to redirect our energy into less stress inducing situations. Of course, as Mars is also associated with anger, the Mars retrograde will push us to develop a healthier relationship with it.
Still, there are a few bright spots during the day with the Moon in Gemini teaming up with Mercury in Libra, which can help negotiations and communications to go well. Later in the afternoon, the Sun in Virgo teams up with lucky Jupiter stationed in grounded Capricorn, which bodes well for anything requiring a practical, persistent, or patient approach toward success. For those of us that have been taking the time to put in the effort toward something we're building, this Sun-Jupiter combo could bring a payoff of some sort.
