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 25, 2017.
Today's a high energy kind of day as the Moon finishes her transit through feisty and impulsive Aries. After a square off with power-hungry Pluto in Capricorn early this morning, which could have us jumping out of bed ready to slay the proverbial dragon, the Moon meets up with rebellious Uranus in Aries by the early afternoon. The best way to handle this combustible combination is to direct it towards the areas in our lives where we have been afraid to change or let go. This Moon-Uranus aspect will help us find the courage to move forward.
If we've been afraid to speak up about something that's troubled us, this Moon-Mercury aspect can help us to find our voice.
By the late afternoon, the Aries Moon meets up with Mercury (retrograde) in Aries, which could make for a shocking outburst or two. If we've been afraid to speak up about something that's troubled us, this Moon-Mercury aspect can help us to find our voice. By the early evening the Moon meets up with Saturn in Sagittarius which can help us get past a challenge or rough patch. The vibe calms down significantly when the Moon enters laid-back Taurus by the end of the night.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You could be second guessing yourself today, namely when you try to follow the rules that everyone else expects you to follow. Though the question remains, do those rules benefit you? If the answer is no, it's time to go beyond simply rebelling against them. What are you doing to change the rules?
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Hardly anyone likes to be told what to do and even fewer people like a bully. That said, could you be coming on way too strong with your opinions and your beliefs right now? Maybe it's time to ease up a little and rethink your approach. On another note, verify any news that you may hear today.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You may feel like a group or friendship circle that you once belonged to, doesn't fit you or your interests anymore. While losing friends can be scary, recognize that you must continue growing as a person and to do so means that everyone won't always be along for the journey. This is OK.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You may feel like you've hit your limit today when it comes to your job or working alongside someone at your job. Though while you shouldn't make any drastic decisions, know that this could be yet another reminder to rethink your current position and take your career in a different direction.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You could find yourself craving a getaway of sorts which could have you ready to dump whatever's on your plate and run for the hills. However, this feeling could be a clue that maybe you're taking on too much than you should. Overall, it's time for a change. Make sure you're changing the right things.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You could receive some news today that will make it hard to ignore a financial issue. Though this may seem like a crisis, it could be just what you need to get the ball rolling on achieving your financial freedom, getting this weight permanently off your shoulders. Go over your receipts/statements carefully.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You may not be seeing eye-to-eye with a partner, either someone you live with or work with professionally, which could lead to a parting of ways or a breakthrough in the relationship that can help you two to progress forward. Above all, know that ultimately the only person you can control is you.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You're overdue for a shakeup — a shakeup of your routine that is. Have things gotten a little stodgy and stale for you? Or perhaps you think there's only one way to go about getting something done? It's time to do things differently and step out of your comfort zone. There's so much more for you.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You may be feeling some fear around whether you can truly survive off of your art or talent. However, it could be that you need to first heal the wounds that you may have around scarcity and lack. Not that you're not working hard enough to get where you want, you just have to believe you belong there.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
An old issue could come bubbling up to the surface today, especially where a family matter is concerned. If you're feeling particularly fired up about it, this could be an opportunity for you to address what's bothering you rather than stuffing it down. On another note, it may be time to move elsewhere.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
It's time to shift your perspective. You're usually known to be unconventional, but it seems like you've gotten too comfortable thinking or doing things one way. That old way of thinking could be holding you back. Meanwhile, you could be ready to clear the air with a friend. Say it face-to-face.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You could receive some news around your money or money owed to you that may push you to speak up for yourself and claim what's yours. Similarly, if you feel like you're not being compensated enough for your work, you could decide to ask for a raise or set your sights on a better paying gig.
