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. 17, 2017.
The Moon continues her trek through the murky waters of Scorpio today, which keeps the mood emotionally intense for better and worse. After an awkward morning meeting with feisty Mars in Aries, the Scorpio Moon goes on to square off with opinionated Mercury in Aquarius. Under this kind of cosmic weather, it can be all too easy to get into an argument or feel slighted by someone, which means we should take a moment to think before speaking or reacting. In the afternoon, the Scorpio Moon meets up with Pluto in Capricorn which can be a helpful combination for getting to the bottom something, especially when it comes to an emotional upset or a hunch. This Moon-Pluto combo can also be helpful for finances and tackling money related matters. By the late evening, the Moon scuffles a bit with Uranus in Aries which could key some tension for us when it comes to sticking to what's safe and following an impulse. We may want to take things slow for the time being.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You could be feeling like a plan you have isn't coming together the way you want or perhaps, you may be feeling a bit afraid of going after something that still feels a bit uncertain. However, if you're afraid to move, how will you grow? Take the reigns and step up.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
There may be some conflict today between your ambitions and the needs of a close relationship which could have you feeling a bit misunderstood on some level. Though before you make any judgments, maybe it's time to dig a little deeper and challenge an old way of thinking.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
If you're feeling stuck, consider whether it's time for you to let go of an old way of life that's no longer working, or at the very least an old habit. Being cautious or smart about your choices doesn't isn't about avoiding change. It's about having a strategy to handle change.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You could feel misunderstood today when it comes to a lover or getting what you need in love. Though before you let the resentment build and turn bitter, this could be the opportunity to bring what's bothering you to the surface. A conversation could be cathartic.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You may not see eye-to-eye with someone you live with or someone close to you today, which could make the atmosphere right for a heated disagreement. Though before you declare an all out war, consider if there's a way that you can approach the situation differently.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Someone on the job could have you in your feelings today, though before you get ready to quit (or get fired), think about whether you may be giving too much of your power away to this person or the situation. Take a moment to regroup and remember who you are.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You could be feeling undervalued or underappreciated today, which could put a dent in your sense of self-worth. Though before you let yourself get too down, it may be helpful if you surrounded yourself with those who love you and take a moment to re-center.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You could find yourself in a middle of a conflict with a family member/roommate today. Though before you let your stress levels go through the roof, it may be time to tell this person exactly how you feel. Don't expect them to read your mind.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You may be having a hard time getting the words out today when it comes to something you feel deeply about, which could either have you lashing out or holding things in. Know that this discomfort you feel could be a cue to purge something/someone bringing you down.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
There could be an issue that comes up around money today that could stir up some tension between your home life and your plans for the future, which could leave you feeling off kilter. However, take this as a reminder that it's time to face the stuff you don't want to.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You could feel misunderstood today in terms of how you see yourself and how you want to be seen by others, which could leave you feeling like you're not doing your best. However if there was a ever a time for some radical self-acceptance, this is it. Let that hurt go.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
Some old fears may come up today, especially where it pertains to your money, security, and fulfilling a dream. However, this isn't the time to give up hope or give up. It could just be that you need to dig in and focus on what you want a little harder. A win is coming.
