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 28, 2017.
Hopefully we're feeling refreshed and well rested — if not, we'll need coffee at the ready because this ain't your typical casual Friday. First off, the sensitive Moon and aggressive Mars meet up together in Gemini just before dawn, kicking off the day into warp speed. With the Moon and Mars at the helm in chatty Gemini, we'll have to be mindful that a poorly thought out tweet, text, email, or conversation doesn't land us in trouble, especially as Mars puts us in a fighting mood and Mercury is still retrograde. However, if we need to speak up for ourselves or on behalf of someone else, this Moon-Mars aspect can help.
Gemini Moon squares off with Neptune in Pisces, which could give us a momentary conflict between head and heart
Later this morning, romantic Venus moves back into feisty Aries which could turn matters around love and money into subjects of passion or subjects of a fight, depending on which side we're on. Meanwhile, communicative Mercury and rebellious Uranus join forces in Aries, which could make for shocking news, sudden moves, or flashes of genius. At best, this cosmic mashup could be like a jolt to the head to help us see things much clearer. By the evening, the Gemini Moon squares off with Neptune in Pisces, which could give us a momentary conflict between head and heart. Though, by the end of the night the Moon meets up for a friendly chat with Jupiter in Libra, which could lighten the mood and help us look at things objectively.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Your focus is on your money, as you're pushed to go after something you want, whether it's a new gig, client, or a higher salary. Though you seem to know how to proceed forward, you may be waiting to act. However, it's best to trust yourself and go with your gut on this one. Take a leap of faith.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)

Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)

Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
