In this daily horoscope for October 21, 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.
We find ourselves easing into the day with the moon in comfortable Taurus, which puts us in the mood for the things that make us feel good. Although we might be seeking comfort today, it’s important to be mindful of being too resistant to leaving our happy place — especially as the moon squares off with innovative Saturn in Aquarius early in the morning. Since this Moon-Saturn combo can highlight our fears around change and uncertainty, today will show us the ways we need to avoid clinging to the past as well as ways that we can keep ourselves calm and grounded.
With the Taurus moon conjoining unconventional Uranus in Taurus by the evening, the static in the air remains. That said, the upside to this cosmic combination could be a stroke of innovation and imagination needed for a breakthrough or a change in direction as the Moon-Uranus pairing motivates us to move away from anything that’s stagnant or outworn.
