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 Aug. 11, 2017.
The Moon enters feisty and fiery Aries today, putting us in the mood for passion, adventure, and fighting for what matters most. Under an Aries Moon, we can expect tempers to run high, which may mean that an argument (or several) is inevitable. However fired up we may be, though, it's a good idea to try to think first before taking action as Aries can leave us feeling impulsive. Still, the high energy of an Aries Moon can be useful as it can give us the get-up-and-go we need to tackle some of our toughest projects, as well as the courage to do something we may have never done before.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Let's talk about you. The focus is on your needs and well-being today, which means it's the perfect day for some "me time." Whatever strikes your fancy or lifts your mood — go for it. Meanwhile, you might find that you're a bit more feisty than usual. Try not to burn anything down — unless you must.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
It's time to pull back a bit and get in some quiet time. If you've been feeling burned out or like you've been run ragged, this is a good day to escape to somewhere relaxing. Taking a time out can also be helpful if you find yourself feeling weepy. Tears can be cleansing. Overall, get you some healing.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You might find that your humanitarian side comes out to play today, as helping others (especially those in need) can be just the thing you need to boost your spirits. At the same time, you might find that the company and support of your friends is also needed. Networking could be successful.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
The spotlight is on your career today as you find yourself in the mood to be recognized for what you do. That said, are you playing yourself small or letting others take the credit for your work when you know you're the one really running the show? If the answer is yes, it's time to do something about it.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You've got no time for the boring stuff today as you're craving excitement and adventure. That's cool, since it seems your overdue for that trip you've always wanted to take. Can't travel? That's cool too as there's more than one way to experience new things. Look to what feeds your spirit and your mind.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Your finances are on the agenda today as you might find yourself looking to ways to improve your financial security. If you've been avoiding dealing with a money issue, it's time to find the courage to handle it. On another note, you're craving intimacy and TLC big time. Recognize that vulnerability is a strength.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You might find that you're the shoulder to lean on today as others seek out your advice and support. If you're feeling up to it, there's no harm in helping out, but don't feel like you're obligated. At the same time, you may find you're in need of some support from someone close to you. Tell them how you feel.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
The attention turns to self-care today as you're encouraged to do something good for your body. A high intensity workout or something that gets your blood pumping could be what you need, especially when it comes to managing stress. At work, look to your co-workers for backup or assistance.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Fun and romance are on the menu today as you find yourself in need of some excitement. Time spent with your favorite girls, doing something you enjoy (hello, happy hour), could be just the thing you need. Meanwhile, getting cozy with someone you're into could set off some serious sparks.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Home and family are your focus today as you might find you're happiest working from home or catching up on the Zzzs you've been missing. If you're in a sentimental mood, spending time with family or those close to you could be heartwarming. Overall, don't be afraid to get the nurturing you need.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Today should be a rather busy day as you find your schedule filled up with all kinds of errands and tasks to complete. It seems you won't mind too much, though, as you love being on the go. If you need something to get your brain going, picking up a new book or writing down your thoughts may help.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You've got your mind on your money and your money on your mind today as your financial needs come to the forefront. If you've been feeling like you've been settling for less or not being compensated enough for your work, you might find the courage you need to turn things around. Believe in you.
