Today's Horoscope: September 17, 2019


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, to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each day. Today's topic: your daily horoscope for September 17, 2019.

The tempo slows down significantly as the Moon enters laid-back and comfort-loving Taurus in the early morning. With the Moon in Taurus our focus turns to nourishing our senses and our bodies with all things pleasurable and indulgent. Though with Taurus also being a hardworking earth sign, the focus also turns toward finding the determination and practical approach needed to get things done.

However, we may experience a few hiccups today as love planet Venus (the planetary ruler of Taurus), which is currently in Libra, opposes wounded Chiron in Aries, triggering issues around insecurity, self-worth, and lack. Luckily, the Taurus Moon goes on to team up with unconventional Uranus in Taurus, asking us to redefine our values and reaffirm our worth, while also helping us to break free of outworn dynamics and definitions around values, money, pleasure, and beauty.

Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and make sure to check out your September 2019 monthly horoscope.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Tina Gong/Bustle

You're thinking about your money now, and if you want to get ahead, it may require that you collaborate with others that complement you rather than trying to go things alone. On a separate note, don't let the success of others make you feel like you aren't good enough. You are.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Tina Gong/Bustle

It's all about you and your needs now, and as such, you're called to assert them. Try not to get too wrapped up in work or the needs of others right now because you have more important things to attend to — yourself. It's time to let some old habits die hard. Be honest with your feelings.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Tina Gong/Bustle

You're called to pull back from the crowd today and get in some needed downtime. At the same time, you might find yourself being pushed to take a moment of solitude to get more comfortable in your own skin. It's time for you to celebrate what makes you unique, not hide it.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Tina Gong/Bustle

You're thinking about your long-term plans and you may be feeling some worry as to whether you're going to make them come true. You can, but you'll have to guard against comparing yourself and your progress to what others are doing. Don't be afraid to break the mold.

Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)

Tina Gong/Bustle

You're focused on your career and ambitions today, though there could be some self-doubt in the air. You could be doubting whether you know enough to be effective in the role you're seeking or if you have the smarts to get to where you want to go. You do. You define your success.

Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)

Tina Gong/Bustle

It may be time for you to examine a belief or philosophy that may be holding you back, especially when it comes to your worth. Recognize that the world is so much bigger than you may see it right now, which in essence, means that there's so much more to you and for you, too.

Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)

Tina Gong/Bustle

An intimate relationship could have you in your feelings today, though it's important to know that you don't have to give your power away to this person. Today, you're called to pour some extra love and attention into yourself. Too, recognize that you don't have to be nice at all costs.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)

Tina Gong/Bustle

Someone may be leaning on you today or being extra needy. While you usually go above and beyond to help others, take care that you're not placing too much of your value or worth on how hard you go for other people. For now, working on breaking free of draining relationships.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)

Tina Gong/Bustle

The focus today is on your responsibilities and laying the groundwork for your future plans. However, you could find it hard to stay focused and may find yourself looking for excitement, perhaps from a fear that things are getting too boring. They're not; you're being called to level up.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)

Tina Gong/Bustle

You're overflowing with creative talent, but today you might be feeling a bit apprehensive or gun-shy about putting those talents on display. On a similar note, you might be feeling unappreciated or ignored for those talents. It's important that you be yourself no matter what. Shine on.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)

Tina Gong/Bustle

You're called to focus on your emotional nourishment today and to take time to slow down and honor your needs. This means reaching out and connecting with others and overcoming any fear that you might have around needing people. You're independent, but you are not an island.

Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)

Tina Gong/Bustle

The focus is on how you think now, and today you're asked to examine the ways that you may be robbing yourself and others of your full self. In other words, it's time for you to give more love to the pieces of you that you've deemed unlovable or unacceptable. Reprogram yourself.
