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 21, 2017.
Expect today to be a busy one. That's partially because motivating Mars leaves the comfy quarters of Taurus for busy as a bee Gemini early this morning, putting us in the mood to do five things at once and striking up conversations in between. Shortly afterwards, Venus in sensitive Pisces squares off with no-nonsense Saturn in Sagittarius which could lead to delays and frustrations when it comes to relationships and finances. The best thing to do with this aspect is to figure out where we may need to fine tune or fix a relationship or financial issue so that we can get what we want. With Venus in Pisces, that may mean letting go of an idealized version of something or someone.
By the late afternoon, the Moon moves into Pisces, putting us in the mood for more soulful experiences and encounters.
By mid-morning, the Aquarius Moon meets up with Saturn, followed by a meeting with Mercury in Aries in the afternoon. These aspects could be helpful for anything that requires us to make a rational, clearheaded decision or to effectively communicate with others. By the late afternoon, the Moon moves into Pisces, putting us in the mood for more soulful experiences and encounters. Though this may be a bit difficult to do when the Moon squares off with Mars in Gemini, which could spark a disagreement or a battle between head and heart. The best thing to do with this kind of energy is to take it slow or find a healthy way to channel it — like journaling. Finishing out the day is a gentle meeting between the Pisces Moon and the Sun in Taurus, which is perfect for mellowing out after a hectic day.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
It may be time for a reality check of sorts when it comes to a relationship or a deeply held desire as you may not be seeing things as clearly as you should. Not that you can't have what you want, you just may be over idealizing it. Use your intuition and your logical mind for clarity.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You may be feeling a sense of disappointment today as something you were hoping or wishing for may not be coming together (or happening at all) the way you want, namely when it comes to your finances. Instead of getting discouraged, it's time to take your cash situation head on.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You may be feeling pulled today between what others want or expect of you and what you really want to do. Perhaps it may be time to communicate how you feel to those people or simply pay more attention to what you feel, as your own fulfillment matters most now. What does you heart say?
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You may be feeling tense today as your dreamier side clashes with the mature you. As such, you may be feeling like a dream won't come true because of your current responsibilities. Though while you can't shirk your obligations, you can carve out time and a routine to actively pursue your dreams.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Is it possible that you're holding on to a love affair or the possibility of one because for right now it seems easier to have something rather than nothing at all? While you're craving a soulmate connection, you may need to remain open to other possibilities. Get back out there.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You and your partner or someone you're close with may not be seeing eye-to-eye today. Though know that this could be an opportunity for you two to open up to each other and discuss how both of you feel. Above all else, know that you don't have to force yourself to live by someone else's standard.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You may not be enjoying something like you used to, perhaps because your thoughts have been heavy or you may be looking for something more. Though a conversation with someone you love may be able to help you see things in a different light. Meanwhile, self-care goes a long way.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You may be feeling a bit frustrated today as you may not be making enough money for the value of your talents. Though may be down temporarily, recognize that you're not out of the game. You just have to remember how truly powerful you are. Demand what's yours.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You could be feeling some tension today between your obligations and goals and what your family or those that are close to you want. Though recognize that at this time it's perfectly fine if the only person you feel like answering to is yourself. You can still do for others, know your limits though.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Though your one of the powerhouses of the zodiac, could you be taking on a little too much right now? Today may be proof that you are. Not that you should start slacking off, it's just that you have to get comfortable with letting others do the extra work for a change. Let go.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
It may be time to take a dream or goal more seriously in order for it to happen, which means you may have to put your time and resources into making a real effort. While this doesn't mean you can't do what you enjoy, it does mean that you need to figure out a way to monetize it.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You could be feeling a bit emotional today around your sense of stability and purpose which could have you thinking that maybe you aren't on the right path. Though before you get discouraged, this is the time where you should pay even closer attention to what you want. It will happen.
