In this daily horoscope for Jan. 28, Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, founder of My Life Created, shares the astrological events happening today that will affect every zodiac sign. Below, here's a look at how astrology will affect our lives today.
There's electricity in the air today thanks to this afternoon's full moon in dramatic Leo. Though some of the drama that might unfold today will be due to love planet Venus teaming up with magnetic Pluto in demanding Capricorn in the late morning. As a result, we might be made privy to someone's shady behavior or may need to avoid being shady ourselves. On a positive note, this Venus-Pluto pairing could show us where we stand with someone, which could deepen the connection or assist us with letting go and moving on.
Meanwhile, the moon in Leo faces off with multiple planets in value-driven Taurus and innovative Aquarius over the course of the day, which also fuels the intensity. Under this planetary mashup, we might feel conflicted in wanting to follow our heart and listening to our head. With the Taurus planets in the mix, we're pushed to focus on our core values and making sure we're not compromising them. As such, we may need to say goodbye to a few things or a few people. When the confident sun and buoyant Jupiter team up in forward-thinking Aquarius by the late evening, we're not only encouraged to go in a new direction, but we'll actually find better opportunities if we do.
