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 December 16, 2016.
The Moon enters warm and noble Leo today which should put us in the mood for fun, romance, and creative expression. Since Leo never does anything small or without flair, this means we shouldn't feel too surprised if we find ourselves or others suddenly going above and beyond (or even over-the-top) for attention and appreciation, as a Leo Moon gives us the need to have an adoring crowd at our feet at every turn. For the most part, the Leo Moon should bring a cheery vibe to the air — though keep an eye out for any drama queens (our inner divas included) wanting to spoil the fun with a "me, me, me" attitude. Give the haters no attention.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Fun, romance, and creativity take center stage today as you’re invited to make room for playtime. What kind of activity would set your heart on fire right now? A party? A play? Wearing the fabulous faux fur coat you just bought? Writing a song? Give the people what they’ve been wanting — you.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You’d be surprised what a fresh coat of paint, new linens, or some brightly patterned drapes can do to shift the mood in your home. And it seems you could use a mood lift right now. If redecorating isn’t in the plans, entertaining a few friends and family at your place could also lift your spirits.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
If you feel like you’re not getting the recognition you deserve around your work and your brilliant ideas, maybe you need to take a different approach in how you present them to others. Playing yourself small will only continue to get you small results. It’s time to make a bold statement.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Does your paycheck represent how good you are? This might seem like a bit of a trick question as you should get rightly compensated for your skill and hard work though on the other hand material worth shouldn’t define who you are. Simply put: you, and only you define your value.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Yasssss, Leo! It’s time to give the world a piece of your mind. Not that you’re the one to ever really hold back, still you might find that there’s something you need to express today in a very big way – especially when it comes to someone who hasn’t been pulling their weight. Speak from the heart.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
It’s time to take a break from the spotlight for a sec, which means today’s the perfect day to get some behind the scenes stuff done and tie up a few loose ends. Though don’t spend the entire day on busywork. Make time to nap and relax too. Whatever’s on your plate can wait a bit.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
When’s the last time you had a good night out with your friends? If it’s been a while, today’s a good day to call a couple up and make some plans for later. Can’t get out? Don’t want to go out? Look to ways you can better use your network to find opportunities that could bring you extra money.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Your career and reputation are in the spotlight today as you may be wondering if you’re getting your due. If you’re not feeling as appreciated as you should be, it could be time to go where you are. Know that someone can’t make you feel a certain way unless you give them the power to do so.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
This is going to be one of those days where the urge to get away from everything and everyone will be hard to deny. Though instead of letting your current responsibilities turn you into Oscar the Grouch, make space to do something that you love today, even if it’s planning your next trip.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Things could get intense today as you might find yourself feeling possessive over something or someone. However, it’s important to remember that if something is meant for you, you don’t need to force it to happen. And if something is not meant for you, it doesn’t mean you’re missing out.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You could find that your partner or someone close to you is in extra need of attention today, which is not necessarily a bad thing if taking care of them makes you happy. However, if it’s one of those cases where giving your energy may be more draining than refreshing — take a step back.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Today’s a good day for a little self-appreciation. If you’ve been feeling run down or low energy, this might be a good time to do something for your body that picks you up, even if it means taking a day off work if it’s become too stressful. One that same note, a little Vitamin D (sunshine) could revive you.
