In this New Year's weekend horoscope, 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.
After helping us to reflect and sit with our feelings, the moon leaves tenderhearted Cancer by the mid-afternoon and enters warm and playful Leo. With the moon in Leo for New Year's Eve, we get the jolt of joy and energy needed for New Year's celebrations. And since Leo is a creative sign, we're encouraged to get creative in how we choose to celebrate as social distancing continues.
Though with the moon duking it out with angry Mars in Aries and cold Saturn in Aquarius during the first half of the day, it could be difficult to find the holiday spirit. Luckily, when the Leo moon goes on to meet optimistic Jupiter in Aquarius by early evening, the mood should start to lift. The moon remains in Leo until late Saturday afternoon, teaming up with Venus in happy-go-lucky Sagittarius and enthusiastic Mars along the way. Together, this cosmic combo keeps the happy vibes going. Meanwhile, Mercury in sensible Capricorn teams up with dreamy Neptune in Pisces, helping us to vision board for the new year.
By Saturday evening, the moon moves to detail-oriented Virgo, putting us in the mood to get organized and streamlined for the new year. Come Sunday, the Virgo moon teams up with the Sun in ambitious Capricorn and innovative Uranus in Taurus. Together, this earthy team not only helps us with planning for 2021, it helps us find the discipline and ingenuity to follow through.
