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 November 19, 2018.
The day kicks off with a late morning meeting between the fiery Aries Moon and Mercury retrograde in Sagittarius. While there's a good chance that this Moon-Mercury energy could have us fired up, we're reminded to slow down and think before speaking or taking action. With Mars, Aries' planetary ruler, currently in watery Pisces, the best way to move forward is with compassion and intuition.
Though by later this evening, Mars in Pisces squares off with Jupiter in Sagittarius, which could have us feeling hypersensitive and overindulgent. The best way to harness this Mars-Jupiter square is by channeling the energy into fighting for a good cause or working on a creative project, as it will be hard to ignore the inspiration. By late tonight, the Aries Moon squares off with powerful Pluto in Capricorn, which could trigger some intense feelings. Though if we're ready to move on from something connected to the past, this Moon-Pluto combo can help us find the courage and motivation to do so.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and be sure to check out your November 2018 horoscope.
