Here’s your daily horoscope, according to Mecca Woods, Bustle’s resident astrologer and creator of MyLifeCreated.com. 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. Below, a look at how astrology will affect our lives today.
It’s a day to initiate a change, a fresh start, and wipe the slate clean thanks to this afternoon’s New Moon in unconventional Aquarius (4:42 p.m. EST). Since this is the first new moon of the year, this moon is especially auspicious for setting intentions and planting seeds for the things we want to see grow over the next few weeks.
If things have been feeling slow and sluggish up until now, this moon will help to push things forward at lightening speed, especially as the Aquarius Moon squares off with unconventional Uranus in the mid-afternoon. This Moon-Uranus combo could cause some shakeups, breakups, and unexpected events. However, as jarring as the energy might be, know that today’s cosmic weather is designed to help us with breaking free of the past, making an important breakthrough, and taking a very different approach to the area of life that this new moon is activating.
On a broader level, since Aquarius is the sign that’s associated with the collective and the needs of the people, this moon can also be a great time to work on initiating a humanitarian cause or project or becoming an activist for progressive change. With the Aquarius Moon teaming up with wounded Chiron in Aries in the early afternoon, the cosmos calls us to band together as a community to stand up for ourselves and those that can’t stand up for themselves.
