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 Feb. 16, 2018.
The vibe is much calmer today, thanks to the Moon in tender and dreamy Pisces, which should put us in a more heart centered and creative space. The morning kicks off with a meetup between the Pisces Moon and Saturn in Capricorn that reminds us what can happen when determination and hard work meets vision. At the same time, this Moon-Saturn pairing can be helpful for those of us in need of some emotional strength today. By mid-morning, the Moon and Venus sync up with Pisces, inviting us to take a compassionate and tender approach with ourselves and others. If we're in need of some heart healing or creative inspiration, this Moon-Venus combo can help.
By late tonight, things may get a bit intense as the Moon squares off with Mars in Sagittarius, which could have us feeling moody and hypersensitive. Luckily, a few moments later, the Moon teams up with Neptune in Pisces, likely calming things down again. We'll just need to be mindful of drowning too deeply in our feelings. Spending time in the company of loved ones can help beat the blues.
