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. 8, 2017.
The Moon remains in sensitive Cancer today, though the tension from yesterday continues. First the Moon opposes power-hungry Pluto in Capricorn in the morning, followed by a square off with rebellious Uranus in Aries and expansive Jupiter in Libra by the late afternoon. Though a Cancer Moon tends to put us in the mood for hugs and heartfelt gestures, today may feel like the opposite with the Moon under fire. To best handle the emotional turmoil that these aspects can churn up, it's best to not take anything personally and recognize that we're all in this together, as change — though unsettling — is inevitable.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
There could be some conflict between you and your family today or something stirred up from the past that sets you off. Though before you lose your cool too soon consider whether exercising a little empathy or compassion could help heal the wound.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You could be feeling hypersensitive today, which could put you in an argumentative mood. Though before you lash out, ask yourself if whether it's more important to use your words to heal rather than to hurt right now. Be conscious of what you're creating.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Is it possible that money may not be materializing in the way that you want it to because you've become too fixated on having it? Simply put: are you letting desperation be your fuel? If so, it's time to take your power back by recognizing you still have worth regardless.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
The pressure may be intense today as you strive to juggle your needs alongside the needs of your partner (or the desire to have one) and your family. Though before cut yourself out of your list of priorities, it may be time to address why you keep holding yourself back.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You may have a lot on your mind today, which could have you feeling more weighed down than usual. Though instead of letting yourself get stuck on things that happened in the past, consider this is your time to clean out your psychic cache. Hint: Let. Go.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You may be feeling like something you've set your sights on is still too far off in the distance, which may have you out of sorts. Though consider that when it comes to getting what you want, how often do you put the needs of others before yours? It's time to change that.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)

Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)

Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
