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 Jan. 19, 2018.
The pace slows down significantly today as the Moon moves into dreamy Pisces, putting us in the mood to escape from the everyday hustle and bustle. With the Moon in this sensitive water sign, we should find ourselves feeling more intuitive than usual and in the mood for intimate and heartfelt encounters. Since creativity also increases when the Moon transits through Pisces, we should find ourselves feeling inspired to put that creative energy to use through art, film, writing, etc. — especially as communicative Mercury in Capricorn meets up with Neptune in Pisces by the late evening. This Mercury-Neptune match-up is perfect for turning our ideas and sparks of genius into something concrete.
The main event doesn't happen until a couple hours later when the Sun moves into friendly and unconventional Aquarius. With Aquarius season kicking off tonight and turning up the electricity in the air, we should not only find ourselves abuzz ideas and a-ha moments, we should also find ourselves looking to share those moments with others. Though Aquarius usually likes to keep connections light and friendly, the Pisces Moon syncs up with Saturn in Capricorn by the end of the night, helping us to establish deeper connections with those around us. As a matter of fact, this Aquarius-Pisces mash-up encourages us to make the most of our relationships and shared bonds with others.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today.
