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. 9, 2017.
This should be a high energy kind of day as we gear up for tomorrow's Lunar Eclipse, with the Moon shifting into proud Leo early this morning. As such, expect the Leo Moon to put us in the mood for big displays of affection, appreciation, style, creativity, and show-stopping flair. Later in the morning, the Moon makes an opposition to quick-witted Mercury in Aquarius, which could key up some tension between listening to our heads versus listening to our hearts, though if we're willing to talk about it, we may find the right solution.
By the early afternoon, the Leo Moon makes a very friendly connection to Venus in Aries, which means that when it comes to money and love, taking the lead with bold, confident actions get us what we want. By late afternoon there's a supportive merger between the Sun in free-spirited Aquarius and equally free-spirited Uranus in Aries, which could light the spark on a genius idea or give us the fuel we need to make drastic changes where we need them most.
A Moon-Mars meetup like this is perfect for anything that requires passion, guts, and a ride-or-die kind of spirit.
Later this evening the Leo Moon stops by for lively chat with Mars in Aries, which should turn up the heat. A Moon-Mars meetup like this is perfect for anything that requires passion, guts, and a ride-or-die kind of spirit. If there's something that you need to do but have been apprehensive or slow to do it up until now, this combo will help you make a move. By the night's end, the Leo Moon brushes up against compassionate Neptune in Pisces, which may be a reminder to keep our egos in check.
