In this daily horoscope for Jan. 15-18, 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 get a little peace and quiet this weekend with the moon leaving excitable Aquarius and entering dreamy Pisces late Friday afternoon. With the moon in Pisces, we're invited to slow down, unplug, and engage activities that soothe and uplift the spirit. Since Pisces is a sign that favors compassion and tenderness, we're invited to be kind toward ourselves and others. With the Pisces moon meeting up with planets in creative Taurus and supportive Venus in Capricorn on Saturday, creative projects and time spent with people we love could help us to refill our cup.
When Sunday arrives, we'll be glad we took the time off when we did, as the intensity in the air begins to ramp up again. Over-the-top Jupiter in Aquarius faces off with unstable Uranus in Taurus late Sunday afternoon, which could trigger shocking events or behavior from others and fry our circuits. Come Monday, the moon moves to aggressive Aries and the high-speed pace kicks back up again. The best way to channel this high-flying energy is to put it toward any area of our lives that we want to change.
