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. 24, 2017.
The Moon remains in relationship-oriented Libra today, putting us in the mood to connect, share, and negotiate with others. However, things may become a little sticky this afternoon when Venus (currently in security oriented Cancer and the planet of love and relationships) squares off with freedom-loving Uranus in Aries. The result could lead to shakeups, breakups, and impulsive decisions when it comes to mating and relating. This goes for finances too as Venus is associated with money. We may need to watch out for a feast or famine approach when it comes to how we handle our cash. The best way to handle this energy is to try to avoid doing anything extreme. Though if a relationship or financial situation is on it's last legs, a shake up may be necessary.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You may feel pulled between wanting to play it safe and wanting to do something rebellious which could have you taking an all or nothing approach today. Though before you make any moves, you may want to take this as a cue to explore something a bit deeper. Are you just going through the motions?
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Are you busy trying to fit in where you don't belong? If the answer is yes, know that you don't have to go out of your way to get others to like you. You attract the right people by simply being who you are. Meanwhile, you may want to be mindful of what you share with others. Trust your gut.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You may be feeling like it's all or nothing when it comes to something you've had your heart set on, which could have you making some rash decisions, namely when it comes to your money. Before you do anything hasty, you may want to think things through first. You may need to reevaluate your values.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You could be feeling some tension today between how you see yourself and how others see you. While you may want to be seen in the best light, are you trying too hard to present the perfect image of yourself? Not that you have to go full on rebel or tone yourself down either. You just need to be genuine.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
When it comes to pursuing a dream, it may be helpful to get clear about what you want first or else find yourself running in circles or taking on too much too soon. And if you don't have the answer right this moment, that's OK too. Though whichever way you choose to go, let authenticity be your guide.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You and a friend may not be on the same page today when it comes to a money matter, especially if the two of you agreed to split money or a cost. On a another note, you could find that you've outgrown a friendship or group of people. Either way, you need to disentangle yourself from the drama.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
When it comes to love and relationships, someone that looks good on paper or fits an ideal standard may not necessarily be good a fit for you. While you should have a clear idea of what you want, you should be open to other possibilities. At the same time, be mindful of losing yourself in another.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You might find yourself ready to run for the hills today, especially if when it comes to your job. If you feel like things have become rote and boring where you are and you're ready for a change, come up with a plan of action to leave rather than burning your bridges. Look to a position with more autonomy.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
When it comes to your love life, an instant attraction could stir up excitement but you may be left wanting something deeper than the person you're into can offer you. Though instead of sticking around, hoping things will change for the better, it may be time to move on. Don't get stuck.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You and your partner may not be seeing eye to eye today, which could leave you feeling a bit unsettled. Maybe you're thinking it's time for a break or a break up between you. Either way, whatever's bubbling up between you has been churning around for a while. It's better to address sooner than later.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You may find yourself caught between wanting to team up with others and wanting to do your own thing, especially when it comes to work. Though it may just be a matter of being strategic about who you work with. Look to those that stimulate you in a positive way. You could learn something new.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You may have to keep yourself from blowing it all today, namely when it comes to your cash. Be wary of impulse buys and spending a little too much money on a fun night out as it could leave you in the lurch later. On another note, if you've been unsatisfied with your job, it may be time for a switch.
