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. 22, 2017.
Hold on to your hats folks, because today is going to be a bumpy ride. As the cosmic energy begins to ramp up for the Solar Eclipse in Pisces (Feb 26), the first stop is a volatile mashup between aggressive Mars in Aries and a Moon-Pluto merger in authoritative Capricorn. Though this is not an everyday kind of occurrence, a combination like this can foster heated arguments, struggles for power and control, extremism, and life-or-death kinds of scenarios. Though the drama doesn't stop there as the power-hungry Capricorn Moon goes on to square off with rebellious Uranus in Aries and Jupiter in diplomatic Libra, which can push us overboard if we're not careful.
While the energy of the day won't be easy to handle, the best way to use it is to use the Capricorn Moon's cautious nature to think before doing anything potentially dangerous or drastic. Mars and Uranus in Aries can help us to see where old and outworn structures need to be torn down, while the Cap Moon can help us to do it strategically and Jupiter in Libra can hold us accountable. By late tonight the Moon makes a supportive aspect to therapeutic Chiron in Pisces, which could help us to unlock a path to healing.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You may feel largely conflicted today as to whether you should go your own way or play by the rules, especially when it comes to your public image and your career. However, before you say or do potentially irreparable damage, talk things out with trusted friends or journal your thoughts.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
There may be a belief or an ideal that you may be crusading for that no longer aligns with the person you are becoming or need to become. Before you fall on the sword of some outmoded way of thinking, consider if it's time for you to go in a radically different direction. Open your eyes.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Some tension could crop up between you and a friend or perhaps with people you thought you identified with. However if manipulation/control has seeped into these relationships, namely to the point where you feel diminished or undervalued, it may be time to go your own way.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You may find yourself in a heated argument today with your partner, roommate, or a parent which could have you feeling like your authority or personal goals are being thwarted. While you shouldn't back down and ignore how you feel, try to come from a rational place.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You may find yourself more opinionated than usual today, which could put you in an argumentative mood. Though before you go around giving your opinion or advice where it's not needed, think about whether it's worthwhile to use your words constructively rather than tear down or gossip.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You could be feeling like you're not getting what you believe you deserve when it comes to money or your love life. Understand this discomfort is to help you make a change. How can you make yourself more marketable? How can you improve your sense of self love? Get the answers.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
There's a chance that an issue between you and someone close to you could be putting undue pressure on you, which could lead to tempers flaring. Though what comes out now can help you to strip away the fluff and the nonsense, helping you to be more authentically you.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
If you find yourself feeling overwhelmed today or feeling like you're spread too thin, take a moment (or several) to regroup and catch your breath. While you're known to be a powerhouse, this is a time for paring down, for resting, and getting back to your core self. You don't have to do it all.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You may be feeling like your financial needs or situation is getting in the way of a creative passion, plan, or goal. Though you may just need to look at the situation differently. Create a vision board, journal your thoughts, and soak up as much inspiration as you can. You can do this.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
There may be some tension today between your own needs, the demands of home and family, and your career goals especially where your sense of stability is concerned. Though know that this is an opportunity to work on your self-worth so you better command what you're worth.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You may be feeling conflicted as to whether you should play it low key or let your freak flag fly unabashedly. Ultimately you were born to be original, which sometimes rubs others the wrong way, much to your delight. Though to get ahead now, you'll catch more flies with honey than vinegar.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You may be feeling some angst today when it comes to your finances and your hopes, dreams, and wishes. But know that where your mind is, is what will be reflected back to you. Use your mind to visualize what you want.
