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 MyLifeCreated.com, to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each day. Today's topic: your daily horoscope for April 12, 2017.
The skies are a bit calmer today as the Moon remains in secluded Scorpio for the day. With the Moon here, we should find ourselves in the mood for solitude, behind-the-scenes activities, and intimate exchanges. The Moon opposes Mercury (which, as a reminder, is retrograde right now) in Taurus in the early hours of the morning, which could stir up old feelings; however, the Moon then goes on to meet up with dreamy Neptune in Pisces later in the evening, which could be helpful for healing and releasing those feelings. With a Moon-Neptune combination like this, it's the perfect day to relax, create, and immerse ourselves in the things we love, with the people we love.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You may be feeling a bit withdrawn today, though it shouldn't worry you too much, as you could use the time out. This is a good time for delving inward and getting clear about what you want so you can make sure you're on the right path towards getting it. Your intuition is scarily on point right now. Listen to it.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Romance should be a sweet spot today for you and your honey, which could have you two talking and dreaming about the future. If you're single, there's a possibility you could meet someone through a friend. Meanwhile, time spent with a friend or a close confidant could be exactly what you need today.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You may be inspired to bring a creative idea to the table when it comes to your job or profession today, which could lead to recognition from a VIP or a step up for you. Don't be shy about sharing your ideas or taking the lead. With Mercury retrograde, just make sure you've cross-checked everything.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You should be able to feel your creative energy pulsing today, which means it's the perfect time to lock yourself away for a few hours and throw yourself wholeheartedly into that energy. Who knows what kind of genius you could come up with now? Well, you know. Overall, dare to do something different.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
It's time to pull back a little and tend to your soulful side, which means it's the perfect day for reconnecting with family, resting, puttering around the house, or spending quality time with the one you love. If you've been feeling off-center, this is a good time for getting calm, grounded, and nourished.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
A conversation between you and your love or a potential love interest could be sweet, especially if things have been bumpy over the last few days. You both could reach a mutual agreement or finally come to an understanding that puts you both at ease. Similarly, a close friend could have great wisdom for you.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Things should be running fairly smoothly at the office (despite the usual shenanigans of Mercury retrograde), which should have you in a good mood. Capitalize on that good mood as you think about your security and finances, which can help you in attracting abundance. A raise or bonus could happen.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Love is in the air for you today, which could be a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the past week. Take time out if possible to indulge in it, even if it means showering yourself with that love. Doing something you enjoy with someone you enjoy can be a welcome escape. Get free.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
It's time to dial it down a notch, Sag, and catch your breath. If Mercury retrograde (or any of the retrogrades) has your head spinning, today's the perfect day for getting in a nap, some good home cooking, or a Netflix marathon. Slow down enough and you just might be able to hear yourself.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You get by today with some help, support, and good vibes from your friends. Call one of them up and catch a movie or drink. The company will recharge your batteries. Meanwhile, you should be feeling super inspired right now, especially when it comes to your goals. Take a chance on something big.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You could get some recognition or attention today that could lead to some extra cash or a promotion at your job. This is why you shouldn't feel doubtful about taking the lead or stepping up to be noticed. As long as you trust your gut, you can't go wrong. Looking for a new job? Put yourself out there.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
If you're not feeling like you're walking on air today, go back to bed and start again. (Kidding). Seriously though, the energy in the air is the kind that can help you take over the world. If you're feeling super inspired and in your element use that power to go after what you want. Blessings may come!
