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, 2018.
The energy of the day should be fairly high as the Moon shifts into optimistic Sagittarius early this morning. With the Moon in this freedom loving fire sign, we should find ourselves in the mood for anything that sets our hearts ablaze and leads us to explore worlds and topics unknown. If we feel stuck somewhere in our lives, the Sagittarius Moon can inspire us to take a risk and try something we haven't done before. We just may need to be mindful of having too much of a good thing as Sagittarius is also known for overindulging. Still, with the Moon in a happy go lucky sign like this, indulgence might not necessarily be a bad thing.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today and check out your February 2018 monthly horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You might find yourself with a serious case of wanderlust today. Though that's not a bad thing. It's just your spirit's way of reminding you that there's a big wide world out there and not to get stuck in small, petty dramas. Spend time on something that gets your spirit soaring.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You might be craving some hot and heavy intimacy today, which means it's the perfect time to ignite your flame with a lover. Though if you're single, this could also be a good time to reconnect to those parts of you that are as sexy as they are sensual. Go ahead and let your inner vixen loose.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Your partner or someone close to you may need some extra attention from you today. If you're feeling inclined, reach out and connect with this person. They might have something new to show you. However, be mindful of giving too much time to someone that's too demanding or clingy.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
It's time to get your life, Cancer. Focus on ways you can bring a healthier balance to how you spend your time. You've got to make sure that your body and energy levels can help you keep up with the demanding workload that you have. At the very least, make sure you're eating well today.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You work hard but you need to play just as hard too. Otherwise no playtime makes for a very dull and very frustrated Leo. Look to doing an activity that brings out your sense of fun and adventure. Nourish yourself with a good time. In terms of your creative aspirations, let your passion guide you.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You may be feeling a bit low-energy today, that's because you're being called to slow down and get centered. If you find yourself in your feels or feeling nostalgic, it's best to allow your feelings to flow than to try and resist them. Don't worry, it will only be for a short time. Nurture yourself.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You might find your mind going a mile minute today while the rest of the world around you is also in a rush. You shouldn't have too much keeping up though because you could use the change of pace. A conversation that you have today could be an important one. It's time to shift your perspective.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Don't be surprised if you feel like splurging a little on yourself. Though try not to feel too guilty about it as you deserve a treat. Just be mindful that you don't break the bank. At the same time, know that what you have (or don't have) doesn't determine your worth. You set your value.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
It's all about you today and you should find yourself in good spirits. If not, look to spend your time doing something that makes you feel good. If you have something to get off your chest, it's a good chance that others will be receptive to what you have to say, so make sure to speak from the heart.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
It's time to pull back from the crowd today and focus on your interior needs. How are you feeling deep down in your soul? Could you use a pick-me-up? Above all else, make sure you're getting the rest you need. Sleep deprivation can burn you out. Also, art can be a form of therapy too.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
It's all about your friends as you may find yourself looking for camaraderie and support from those you know. The good news is that you've got people in your life that are more than happy to oblige. On a similar note, you could make a positive impact on someone today with a random act of kindness.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
How fulfilled do you feel when it comes to your career? This question may be a major focus for you today. Consider the ways that you could feel happier about what you do. Hint: it may mean shifting gears or following your heart. On a different note, you could be celebrated for your work.
