We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible or how each sign handles conflict in relationships. That's why Bustle has enlisted Mecca Woods, a New York City-based astrologer of MyLifeCreated.com, to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each day. Today's topic: your daily horoscope for October 8, 2019.
The big news of the day comes courtesy of Venus (the planet of love and values), which is leaving airy Libra for the deep waters of Scorpio this afternoon. With Venus in all-or-nothing Scorpio, things like love, relationships, beauty, and pleasure all become more seductive, raw, and intimate. Venus in Scorpio asks that we make sure that whatever we want is 100 percent the real deal, and that we accept no substitutes.
With the Moon still in friendly Aquarius, we're still focused on the connections that we share with our community and those at large. Since the Moon will be teaming up with the Sun in sociable Libra and Jupiter in happy-go-lucky Jupiter during the first half of the day, we should find that socializing, networking, and joining forces with others can lead to opportunity and success. However, with Venus in Scorpio, we're asked to ensure our allegiances are truly worth our time and effort.
By later this evening, ambitious Mars in Libra opposes wounded Chiron in Aries, which could have us feeling touchy, defensive, or ineffective. However, this cosmic combo can help us to see where we may need to be more assertive or where we need to be more open to working with others.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and make sure to check out your October 2019 monthly horoscope.
