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 Feb. 16, 2017.
The Moon enters Scorpio in the wee hours of the morning, which brings the mood to a sexy yet brooding pace. When the Moon is in Scorpio it's the perfect time to explore intimacy, feelings, and investigate the darker stuff that we normally try to avoid. Speaking of feelings, if there's something we need to get off of our chest, there's a meetup between communicative Mercury in Aquarius and confident Mars in Aries in the afternoon that can help. This combination is also helpful if we need an extra burst of energy to get something done.
By the early evening the Scorpio Moon scuffles a bit with Venus in Aries which could turn up the intensity when it comes to money and relationships, implying that maybe what we want is not exactly what we need right now.
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 may be feeling inspired today when it comes to going after a longtime dream, which could have you spilling over with energy and ideas. Though before you get too carried away, this may be a good time to check in on your finances to make sure you're building on steady ground.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Partnership comes into focus for you today as you may need to ask yourself if what you're currently getting in your partnership is in alignment with what you want for yourself over the long-term. You may need to bring what you're feeling out into the open so it can be addressed.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
When it comes to getting closer to fulfilling a dream or meeting one of your goals, today may require more discipline and dedication than you're used to. It's OK to want something but it's the follow-up to getting what you want that counts. So, Gemini, what are you going to do?
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
If you want to take your career or your passion to the next level, you may have to stop giving away your goods for free. Simply put: are you demanding enough for what you're worth? Sometimes it's not enough to be good at what you do — you have to believe you're good too.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You could be feeling a bit moody today which may not make you feel like you're usual outgoing self. While you're entitled to your feelings, it could help if you talk to someone close to you about what you're going through. They may be able to help you shift your perspective.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Someone you know could say or do something today that could have you reading too much into what happened. Instead of allowing yourself to get unnecessarily riled up, it may be a good time to question why you may be feeling so sensitive. The answer may be enlightening.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Your income and finances take center stage today which may mean that a conversation about money may come up between you and your beloved. Know that your needs are important too. If single, are you wanting one thing from love but settling for another? Your values must align.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Sometimes self-care is not about bubble baths and chocolate. Sometimes it means handling the mundane stuff that you would rather avoid or leave until the last-minute. Today is one of those days for handling that mundane stuff and getting your biz in order. Save yourself some stress.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You may find yourself in your feelings today which could stem from feeling underappreciated, especially by someone you may be dating. Though instead of passive aggressively expecting this person to get the hint, you may need to speak up on your own behalf and set them straight.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You may need to have a talk with a friend or someone close to you today, especially if you feel like they've been taking you for granted lately. While this doesn't mean an end to the friendship, it does mean you need to get clear about the role you want this person to play in your life.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
The spotlight is on your career and reputation today and you may find yourself craving attention and praise for your hard work. Though instead of playing humble and waiting for others to notice your talent, you're going to have to step up and toot your own horn.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You may find yourself hyper-focused on making one of your biggest dreams come true today. Though this might be one of those days where you're reminded that in order for you to get something you really want, you might have to dig in and fight for it. Trust your instincts.
