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. 15, 2017.
The Moon shifts into curious and communicative Gemini today, putting us in the mood to learn new things and to connect and share with others. While a Gemini Moon usually brings a light and carefree energy to the mix, things may be feeling a bit intense today as sentimental Venus in Cancer opposes power-hungry Pluto in Capricorn, which can create an "all or nothing" kind of vibe when it comes to relationships and financial matters. However, the Gemini Moon can help us to stay cool and remain objective, so we don't unnecessarily burn any bridges making drastic decisions or trying to force things to go our way.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.
And remember to tune into Bustle's weekly horoscopes video live on Facebook every other Monday at 5 p.m. EST for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You won't be up for small talk today, that's because you're looking for juicier connections with others right now. That's a good thing, as you could use more genuine, heartfelt interactions with others. Overall, when it comes to anything you do today — either you feel it or you don't. There's no room for lukewarm.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
That dissatisfaction you're feeling today, may be trying to clue you in on something deeper. If you're feeling like there's more out there for you, you're right. Now's the time to think in bigger and better terms; expand your mind, open yourself up to new experiences. Don't close yourself off from growth.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Your wants and needs come into focus today as you may be pushed to draw some boundaries between you and someone else, especially when it comes to money. If someone has been taking advantage of your generosity or forcing you to pay more than your fair share, it's time to speak up about it.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You could find yourself in a tug of war today, when it comes to what you want and what your partner or someone close to you may want from you. Before you get sucked into a draining, emotionally-charged exchange, it may be best to back off and give yourself some space to think first. Trust your intuition.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You may be feeling a pushed and pulled in two different directions today when it comes to what you want. While part of you may want to be out and about and socializing with others, the other part of you may want to keep it cozy and low-key. Be choosy about how (and with whom) you spend your time.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
It's time to be more mindful about who you choose to call friend or those that you keep company with, as not everyone needs to have access to you or your gifts. While you may be eager to help others, think about ways you can make the most impact with little to no obligation on your behalf. Don't be a hero.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
When it comes to your career or something you're passionate about, you may be forced to get clear about what you really want. In other words, it's time to stop second guessing yourself. At the same time, it's time to break free of the past in order to move forward. You're not the sum total of your family history.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You may feel caught between holding on to what you know and being open to what's possible. Though the past and future don't have to be mutually exclusive. What you know has brought you to where you are, but in order to move beyond this place it's time to learn something new. Face your fears.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
A partnership could come into focus today, or at the very least, the thought of a partnership which could stir up your fears of losing your freedom. Before you go into a panic and sabotage yourself, know that there's strength and reward in being vulnerable and receptive to another. Partnership is an asset.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You may be busy with knocking things off your to-do list which is normally light work for you. However, today is not just about plowing through the work on your desk, it's also about working to take care of you too. In other words, don't be so quick to do it all yourself. Be open to assistance and feedback.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Your mission today is to find some healthy ways to blow off steam, especially if you've been feeling particularly anxious or restless. If you're feeling up to a little company, make sure it's with people that you consider to be close and trusted friends. It's OK to keep your inner circle small for now. Treat yo' self.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
When it comes to your creative gifts, are you using them as fully as you could be? It seems there's something deep down inside of you (a story, painting, song, etc.) that wants to come out but you're holding back for some reason. Stop getting in your own way, Pisces. You have the right to shine. Do it.
