Your Daily Horoscope For February 2, 2017
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. 2, 2017.
The Moon rounds out her trip through headstrong Aries today, which keeps the energy high for much of the day. Though the kind of energy we can expect is a different story. An Aries Moon loves a good fight, and fight she will as she squares off with power-hungry Pluto in Capricorn, merges with rebellious Uranus in Aries, squares off with conservative Mercury in Capricorn and opposes "we first" Jupiter in Libra — all before noon! Meanwhile there's a battle royale between Mercury in Capricorn and Jupiter in Libra this morning as well.
What this unstable energy translates to down below runs along the lines of restlessness, frustration, and emotional outbursts. Though the best way to handle this cosmic combination is to use the fire power of the Aries Moon to stand up to bullies, or to find the courage to break free of anything in our lives that has become stale and no longer useful.
By noon, the Moon makes a supportive link to responsible Saturn in Sagittarius, which could help to cement the changes we make. By the late evening the tension calms down considerably when the Moon shifts into stable and grounded Taurus. As such, we'll be in the mood to relax and get comfortable in the company of good people and good food.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
If you feel like you're not getting as far in your career as you like, it's possible that's it time to step it up when it comes to your marketability, education, and skills. Even if you're a powerhouse at what you do, could you stand to study your craft a bit further and polish up your presentation? The answer is yes.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Feeling the world change around you may not be the most comforting thing, especially if you're a creature of habit and enjoy your stability. But consider this — in order for you to survive the instability around you, an old piece of you may need to die so you can see how resilient and capable you really are.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
When it comes to your relationships, are you getting back as much as you give? While you're often a friend to many, it's important to make sure the sentiment is returned in kind. Not that you have to take a tit for tat approach but you should definitely be getting a return on your emotional investments.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You may be feeling the pressure between juggling your career and ambitions and meeting the needs of your relationship. Though now might be a good time to take a step back and find a better way to manage your schedule. Hint: Time management skills can save your life. Single? You can make room for love.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You may be feeling the push and pull between sticking to your current job (and doing the responsible thing) and running for the hills. Though it may be time to evaluate how seriously you take your talents and whether you think they're worth the kind of financial compensation you want. Dig deeper.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
A romantic interest or potential romantic interest may not be giving you the kind of passion and intimacy you need right now. Though, this may mean you have to stick to your guns and hold out for a deeper connection. Happily coupled up? You may need to have a convo about finances or the kids.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
There's a chance that you and your partner or someone close to you may not see eye to eye today, especially over a family or home related matter. Though don't let this get you too down as this may be your cue to address the elephant in the room. Speak up and be heard.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You could find yourself with a lot on your plate at the office or job, which could feel a bit overwhelming. While it's important for you to excel at what you do, this may prompt the question as to whether you're being paid enough for all of this extra work. If the answer is no, you may need to say something.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You may feel a battle between the love of your craft and your ability to generate sufficient money from your craft. Though don't let the trickle of funds deter you from living your greatness. You may just need to be more business savvy in terms of how you present yourself and your work.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Something from the past may be haunting you today, which could put you in your feelings and wondering if there was something that you've could have done to avoid what happened. Though know that this is not the time for beating yourself up but rather learning how to accept yourself unabashedly.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You may be itching to let a friend have it today, which may be the start of the end of your relationship with this person. While losing a friendship can be painful, you need to honestly ask yourself if this person is worth all of the emotional turmoil you're going through. Find you a ride or die.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
You may be wondering if you'll be able to see a dream into reality as your financial situation may seem to say otherwise. Though instead of worrying that you can't get what you want, know that this means that you just have to dig in and work a bit harder. Sometimes you have to fight for what's yours.
