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 17, 2017.
Here's to hoping you've had a restful weekend, because this Monday was made for getting back down to business. While the Moon remains in hardworking Capricorn, the day kicks off with a friendly meetup between the Sun in energetic Aries and no-nonsense Saturn in Sagittarius. This kind of cosmic combination is perfect for activities and events that call for us to overcome obstacles and meet a challenge head on, as when the Sun and Saturn get together, our focus turns towards success, achievement, and making our dreams real. We get further assistance in this area by the late evening when the Capricorn Moon meets up with dreamy Neptune in Pisces, providing us with the resolve and realism needed to fulfill deepest desires.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
With all that you've been learning and the momentum you've been building the time has come for you to apply what you've learned. If there's a goal, plan, or vision that you'd like to see made real, it's time take tangible steps towards getting there. While you're at it, prepare to wow the crowd.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You may receive some insight today that confirms something you're working towards. Though you don't necessarily need to wait for outside confirmation that you're on the right track, you simply need to trust yourself. It's time to face whatever scares you and release yourself from self-doubt.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
When it comes to fulfilling your goals, you can get things done much faster when you collaborate with others. While you'll still have to be savvy about who you choose to align with, teamwork makes the dream work. Look to your network to help you secure leads on a career or financial opportunity.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Aim for your best when it comes to your career today, because you might just win the attention of those in a position to offer you a promotion or a step up. If you're on the hunt for a new job, make sure you sell yourself on the strength of your accomplishments. Have your references ready.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You should find yourself inspired to get down to work today, especially when it comes to hashing out ways that you can monetize your creative ideas. Perhaps this may mean taking a hobby or passion and turning it into a side gig, or moving on to an employer that rewards you for your brilliance.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You could reach a breakthrough today when it comes to a matter around your finances or sense of stability, which bodes well for what you're trying to build, especially if you're trying to build it with a partner. Though when it comes to love, you'll need to make sure your partner is willing to do the work too.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
A relationship could be getting serious, now that you're considering having this person be a part of your everyday life. Could there be vows on the horizon? Possibly, but it's important that you don't idealize this person but see them exactly as they are. Observation and conversation will be illuminating.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
A day at the office could turn into one of your best days yet as a creative idea, proposal, or pitch could be the thing that gets you the job, client, or opportunity. Overall, when it comes to your dreams now, you seem to know just the right strategy to play to make them happen. Use your intuition.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Whatever goals you set to tackle today, there's little chance that anything will stop you in your tracks as the cosmos gives you just the right combination of charisma, focus, and confidence. Financially, a dream could possibly come true, especially if you've been looking to move or relocate.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You may feel more stable today than you have in a while which could be a result of your relationships with others. You've been learning how to receive support from others and that lesson hits home today. On another note, you could receive news today that affirms you're on the right track.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You may have noticed that the people who've fallen out of your life recently had to do so because they were taking up space in your life for all the wrong reasons. Now, it's not so much about replacing them but maintaining the relationships that are worth it. Your friends could open doors for you.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
When it comes to your job or career, this is the perfect day to show folks what you're made of, as the stellar job you do today could translate into an opportunity tomorrow. Simply put: you truly get what you put in. As such, now's the time to plant seeds for what you want to grow.
