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 9, 2018.
Coming off of yesterday's New Moon, the Moon remains in partnership-oriented Libra, keeping the focus on romance, relationships, and the need for compromise and balance. With Venus, the planet associated with Libra, still retrograde, the emphasis is on reviewing and renegotiating relationships in order to make sure we're all on the same page. However, with the Libra Moon squaring off with transformative Pluto in Capricorn at the start of the day, we may need to purge or release a relationship that's been unhealthy for us in some way.
With communicative and analytical Mercury moving into intuitive Scorpio later this evening, we're pushed to see things beyond face value, which includes the people in our lives too. If there's a matter that we need to get to the bottom of, Mercury in Scorpio will help. At the same time, if intimacy has been an issue with a partner or someone close to us, Mercury in Scorpio can help to open the lines for deeper communication.
