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 6, 2017.
There's a couple of really useful cosmic combinations to take advantage of during the very early hours of the morning for those of us that may happen to be awake. The first one comes just after midnight (EST) when aggressive Mars, now in Taurus, syncs up with power-hungry Pluto in Capricorn. A few hours later, the Leo Moon and Jupiter in Libra get together for a friendly meetup. If there's anything big that we'd like to go after now, these combinations give us just the right amount of charisma, confidence, and determination to make it happen. Though with responsible and hard-working Saturn beginning it's five month retrograde in Sagittarius today, this energy is best used for following through on an opportunity or a promise that's already been presented, opposed to beginning something brand new.
Later in the day, there's a square off between the Leo Moon and Mars in Taurus which could spark an argument or disagreement.
Later in the day, there's a square off between the Leo Moon and Mars in Taurus which could spark an argument or disagreement. However, the silver lining to this aspect is that it can force us to be more protective/affirmative of our self-worth. By the mid-afternoon, the Moon meets up with Uranus in Aries, which could be a great aspect for breaking free of something that's been holding us back or demanding that we play ourselves small. Towards the end of the day, the Moon meets up with serious Saturn in Sagittarius, which can be helpful for digging deep to find the kind of inner strength we need to overcome an obstacle.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
What kind of legacy are you leaving behind? It's time to check-in with yourself as to whether what you want to be known for and the personal convictions you hold are in alignment. You may be presented with the opportunity to betray those convictions — don't. Your reward comes by remaining true to you.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Taking a calculated risk could take you to places beyond what you've imagined, which could help you to improve your sense of financial security. The only thing is, this isn't something that you don't already know. You've probably been sitting on this decision for a while. It's now time to act.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
When it comes to some of the relationships in your life, it's time for you to face facts and see these people for who they really are. As such, that may mean setting down appropriate boundaries, speaking up for yourself, or both. You don't have the time or energy to waste on those that negate your value.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You may find yourself mired in a power struggle with a friend or someone close, which could have you stressing. However, this may be a cue to examine whether this person still has a valuable role in your everyday life. Not that you have to cut them off totally, but maybe it's time to reduce their presence.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
When it comes to your career and professional life, there is just about nothing that's standing in the way, except for maybe you of course. Though don't take this personally, as this is your chance to breakthrough any self-doubts or fears that you may have. You're building an empire here, act like it.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You have the ability to make a long held dream come true. Though it's going to take more than you being realistic about what's in front of you and challenging yourself to believe in what seems impossible. Sometimes being "realistic" is a substitute for fear and right now you don't have time for that.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
When it comes to a family matter or your relationship with someone close to you, it seems that there's some unfinished business for you to sort out today. Perhaps this may mean having a heart to heart conversation or showing up for someone in a way that you haven't before. It's time to dig deep.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
A powerful conversation today between you and your partner or someone close to you could either help to deepen your bond or reveal why it may be time to part ways. Meanwhile on the career front, an opportunity could present itself that can help you get closer to the success you want.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
It's time to reevaluate what you value — what you're willing to fight for and what you could stand to toss aside. Right now, everything you're doing is to improve your sense of stability. You've grown a lot in recent months and it's time to go back to see if those lessons have stuck.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Things could be heating up on the romantic front whether you're single or not as you're insanely magnetic now. Don't be surprised if you have admirers falling at your feet. Coupled Capricorns should find the sparks flying with their love in and out of the bedroom. Creatively, you're also on fire.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You may be able to find the inner strength you need today to move past an old situation or to release someone that may have hurt you. While you don't necessarily like to be in your feelings, there are some that you have that you can stand to finally let go. People are rooting for you to win. You will.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
When it comes to your hopes, wishes, and professional goals, it's a good chance that whatever you choose to put your mind and energy towards can happen. This is why you need to be intentional about where you focus that energy. Consider what you want to accomplish and take steps to get there.
