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 3, 2017.
Today starts off what may be a fairly bumpy week and that's because the Moon, still in sensitive Cancer, gets caught up in a three-way fight between the Sun in feisty Aries, Jupiter in peace loving Libra, and Pluto in no-nonsense Capricorn. With this kind of chaotic cosmic combo, we could feel pushed towards making sweeping changes but then hung up on exactly how to do it. Luckily there's a couple of astrological aspects throughout the day that can be helpful for handling this volatile energy. The first one comes just after noon when the Cancer Moon meets up with dreamy Neptune in Pisces. This Moon-Neptune combo is perfect for connecting with others for love and a supportive pick-me-up to make it through an otherwise tough day.
When the Moon and Neptune get together, it's best to lay low as much as possible and listen closely to our intuition. Later in the evening, the Cancer Moon meets up with Mars in Taurus which can be helpful when it comes to drawing boundaries or drawing up some inner strength.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
It's going to be pretty easy to feel like you're spinning in circles today, like there's 10 different things coming at you right now and you're unsure of how to tackle them all. Know that you shouldn't beat yourself up for feeling the way you do. In fact, honor your feelings. They are there to guide you.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You may find yourself being extra opinionated today, which is not necessarily a bad thing. Though it's important to make the discernment as to whether you're using your words to hurt or to heal. Use your voice to constructively make an impact. Take your time when it comes to decision-making.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You could be feeling like you're treading shaky ground today when it comes to your finances and your future. However, this feeling could be the push you need to start taking your dreams and gifts more seriously. Focus less on what you don't have and more of what you're capable of having. Dig in.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Make self-care a priority for yourself today, namely when it comes to creating space for you and your dreams. When it comes to something you want to do or have dreamed of doing, you may need to keep it to yourself for now to keep people and their opinions out of your head. This is about what you want.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You may be feeling fearful or apprehensive as to whether you should stick through something and tough it out or if you should cut your losses and run. The key to answering this question though, depends on how strongly you believe you deserve to struggle. You don't have to punish yourself.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You could be going back and forth with yourself around a relationship today. On the one side it has potential but on the other side, you're wondering if you can truly be happy here. The important thing to keep in mind is that you deserve to have what you want. In this case, all of it or nothing at all.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You may be feeling a bit off when it comes to your career and ambitions today as it may feel like you're not getting the recognition or attention you deserve for the work and brilliance you bring to the table. Though now's not the time to wait for the audience to cheer. Rally yourself and press on.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You may have a vision that you'd like to see come true but you may be getting caught up on the logistics/specifics on how to exactly make it happen. Though before you get discouraged, recognize that this is not something you have to do all on your own. That's why you have people in your corner.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
When it comes to making your hopes and wishes come true now, it's time to raise your financial IQ and tackle your priorities head on. Don't wait for things to hit critical mass before you decide to take action and handle your business. Consider it an act of self-care. Don't let crisis be your source of motivation.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Others may be pulling on your energy today more than you would like, which may not have you in the nicest of moods. However, this could be a cue for you to take more care in protecting your inner sanctum by giving more of your energy to those who feed you good energy in return. Make time for love.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
When it comes to the way you treat your body, specifically when it comes to the foods that you eat — are you treating yourself as well as you could be? Right now you need as much energy as you can muster to stay focused, ready, and inspired to go after what you want. Make sure you're powered up.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
It's time to give more precedence to what you need as opposed to what someone else wants, namely when it comes to an intimate relationship. As such, you may need to ask yourself (and answer honestly) if this person is capable of meeting you where you are emotionally. Don't beg for scraps.
