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. 28, 2017.
After a bit of a cranky start to the morning thanks to the power-hungry Scorpio Moon squaring off with passionate Mars in Leo, things begin to cheer up as the Moon shifts into optimistic Sagittarius later this afternoon. With the Moon in Sagittarius, we should find ourselves in the mood for fun, adventure, and a very healthy appetite for anything that broadens our minds and our experiences. The vibe gets a bit hairy later in the evening though, when the the Moon in big-picture Sagittarius squares off detailed oriented Mercury in Virgo (which is still retrograde). Under the influence of this cosmic combination, we may may find ourselves arguing about something that may have happened in the past or feeling a bit scattered and unfocused. At the same time this Moon-Mercury combination could bring up head versus heart issues. The best way to handle this aspect is to let things go and avoid getting caught up in the hysterics. Though the day ends on a positive note, when the Sagittarius Moon gets cozy with Venus in Leo, stoking up the passion, generosity and warmth when it comes to love and relationships.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You may feel pulled between wanting to get away and have fun and buckling down to take care of business. In order to save yourself a headache, you may want to finish up any pending projects and tie up loose ends before jumping into anything new. At the same time, a big idea calls for a detailed strategy.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
A former flame could come popping back up today, perhaps looking for some form of reconciliation. However, you may want to take a moment to check in with yourself as to whether reconnecting with this person would be a good idea as it may leave you emotionally raw. A little self-love never hurt.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
An argument could be brewing between you and your partner (or someone close to you) today, which may have to do with something that happened in the past. Though you can avoid a major meltdown by utilizing your skills for communication and negotiation. Look for the win-win solution.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You may run the risk of running in circles today, which means that you'll need to be mindful about taking too much on at once. While you may have pending and pressing things to complete on your to-do list, you want to make sure you're doing them efficiently. A job offer or bonus could be on the table.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Romance may be in the air but before you get ahead of yourself, you may want to take some time to review or reassess your values when it comes to what you're looking for in a mate. Simply put: stop entertaining matches you know aren't the right fit for you. Remember, you can do so much better.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
There's a chance that you and a family member or someone you live with may be in disagreement today, which could have you feeling misunderstood. Though instead of dwelling too hard on what's said or not, it may help if you don't take things too personally. Give yourself some space to rest and relax.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You might find yourself being extra opinionated today, but before you say something you might have a hard time taking back, you may need to assess if you're using your words to hurt or to heal. Not that you have to keep your thoughts to yourself but you may need to use your knack for diplomacy.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
A financial matter could be getting in the way of your future plans. However, it may not be necessary to give up on your dreams entirely. You may just need to go back to the drawing board when it comes to planning how you're going to fulfill that dream. A job offer or promotion could get the ball rolling.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Have you become too concerned with how others see you? If so, you may need to pull back a bit and center yourself. How you feel about you is more important, which means today might be a good time for some self-reflection. Pay attention to what's in your heart. That's where you'll find your truth.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You may be asked to confront something that you once believed to be true as you may not be seeing a situation as clearly as you should. Before you go on facts only, it may be necessary for you to go on your intuition too. Financially things begin to change for the better. In matters of love, it's time to heal.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
An old, unresolved issue could be getting in between you and a friend today, which could have you at odds with each other. Perhaps a discussion may be necessary in order to clear the air and smooth things over. Progress won't happen by pretending like you don't feel what you feel. Speak from the heart.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You may feel pulled in multiple directions today when it comes to keeping others happy, but you may need to take a step back and ask yourself if all that work is worth it. On another note, a business relationship may not be working the way it should. This could be a cue for you to move on to something better.
