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 Oct. 20, 2017.
The vibe is a bit subdued today as the Moon remains in undercover Scorpio for the day, putting us in the mood for solitude, behind-the-scenes activities, and intimate exchanges. Those feelings should intensify as the Scorpio Moon goes on to meet up with dreamy Neptune in Pisces later in the evening, heightening our sensitivity, compassion, and intuition. With a Moon-Neptune combination like this, it's the perfect time to relax, follow through on an inspiration, and immerse ourselves in the things we love, with the people we love.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today and be sure to check out your October 2017 monthly horoscope, too.
