We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible, the best sex positions for each sign, 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 November 17, 2016.
After the Moon (feelings) in sensitive Cancer opposes Venus (love) in stoic Capricorn this morning, she goes on to meet up with Neptune in dreamy Pisces for a friendly chat that lasts for most of the day. Together, the Moon and Neptune can heighten our intuition and our sensitivity, which could either lead us to fated encounters or remind us of the beauty and the dreams that are possible. Still, by the evening the Moon goes on to have an intense showdown with Pluto (power, control) and Jupiter (opportunity), which could be a rather harsh reminder that some things (or someone) could be a little too good to be true. With Saturn (reality, duty) in expansive and big thinking Sagittarius, a focus on practical solutions and clearheaded judgement could help us to avoid any pitfalls.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You could be on par to receive a reward or some form of accolade from your career now but it seems that if you really want to shoot for the top, you may need a little extra help from someone in the know to help you get there. Be open to learning something new.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You're never the one to refuse work, but you may have found yourself with a ton of it lately. While this is not necessarily a bad thing, today you'll have to figure out what warrants your attention and what doesn't so you don't go into overload.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You could come into some extra cash today or find yourself in the mood to splurge on something fun. However, your current budget may be asking that you be a little more responsible with your funds and save something for a rainy day.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You could be tempted to pick a fight with your partner or someone close to you over them doing their fair share of the repsponsibilities between you, though before the exchange between the two of you gets too heated, it may be time to renegoiate or clarify your agreement.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You could be presented with a new opportunity, namely where it pertains to you employment situation, but you may need to take a step back and ask yourself if this is something that you really want. Yes, your tastes or needs may be maturing, but you don't have to settle.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Romance could be on the horizon today, especially if you meet someone new through a friend. The feeling of this connection has a bit of a fated vibe to it, though it's best to go slowly on this one. You need to make sure this person has something to offer.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You may be feeling the pressure today from demands at home and work. However, you don't have to wait until you hit your breaking point in order to do something about it. Prioritize what's important today and get comfortable with saying "no".
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
The urge to get away from it all could be strong today as you seem to have more than enough on your plate. However, this need for solitude or something new may be pointing to a deeper need for you to give yourself a break without feeling guilty. Don't worry, the work will still be there.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
As you work on creating more stability for yourself, especially where your home and finances are concerned, you may need to put your networking skills to use in order to help you uncover the funds you'll need for your current and future plans.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Love is in the air for you but before a relationship can get off the ground or progress, you may need to first challenge yourself on you relationships ideals. Are you expecting too much or being overly idealistic or pessimistic when it comes to love?
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
If your current work environment is taking its toll on you, it may be time for you to take a leap of faith and change your environment or puruse something that you really want to do. Give yourself some of the freedom you've been craving.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
You're often a friend to many but are those people you call friend always there for you when you need them? Consider that now may be the time to better align yourself with friendships that are mutually rewarding instead of those that are lopsided and draining.
