Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, founder of My Life Created, shares every zodiac sign's daily horoscope for January 12.

Quality over quantity is theme of the day as the moon finishes out her stay in values-driven Taurus. As a result, we can expect to focus more on the caliber or the progress of our work, as well as quality-of-life issues. If we want to improve or step it up in these areas, today provides us with the opportunity.

In the morning, there’s a friendly meeting between the moon in Taurus and the confident sun in no-nonsense Capricorn. With the help of this cosmic combination, we can identify what works and what doesn’t with a plan or project, so we can plan or adjust accordingly. With Mercury retrograde set to begin on Jan. 14, now’s a good time to start reassessing or tweaking what we’ve been doing thus far. This will help to ensure that we’re not caught out there or unprepared later when hiccups or problems arise.

By the afternoon, the Taurus moon joins forces with powerful Pluto in Capricorn. This planetary pair can lend us the determination we need to get past an obstacle or deal with a persistent problem. Come late tonight, the moon enters intellectual Gemini. With the moon in Gemini, whatever we’re discussing, reading, or listening to will have a lot to say about our mood.
