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 19, 2018.
The Moon finishes out her transit through unconventional Aquarius today. Though the morning may start out a bit rocky as the Moon squares off with Jupiter in Scorpio, which could bring on some unexpected feels. However, the Moon goes on to team up with the Sun in Libra about an hour later, reminding us to lean on others for support. Shortly afterwards the Moon goes Void of Course (the period of time when the Moon is transitioning between zodiac signs), making the late morning/early afternoon a time for finishing things we've already started or taking a moment to breathe.
However, that moment may be short lived as Mercury in all-or-nothing Scorpio squares off with aggressive Mars in Aquarius by the mid-afternoon. This Mercury-Mars combination could stir up arguments and disagreements if not channeled well. The best way to use this cosmic combo is for anything that requires quick thinking or solving a problem. By the late afternoon, the Moon shifts into dreamy Pisces, bringing some peace and calm to the end of a hectic week. By the evening, the Pisces Moon teams up with unconventional Uranus in Taurus, which could bring us the refresh we need.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and check out your October 2018 monthly horoscopes.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)

Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
If you're not happy where you are in terms of your professional life, complaining about it won't get you too far. However, you do have the option to do something about it. You just need to be open to change and recognize that what you want is within reach. Believe in yourself.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
It's time for you to acknowledge your truth, no matter how uncomfortable or ugly it may seem. Trying to avoid the inevitable by sweeping things under the rug will only ensure that it will come back to bite you later. If you need to tell someone else how you feel, you can be fair but firm.
