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 Jan. 11, 2017.
The Moon (feelings) remains in moody and heartfelt Cancer today, though the vibe is a bit more low-key than yesterday which means it could be the quiet before tomorrow's storm (Full Moon). After the Sun (power) in Capricorn meets up with Chiron (the healer) in Pisces in the early a.m., the nurturing Cancer Moon merges with compassionate Venus (relationships) in Pisces, about an hour later. Thanks to these aspects, we'll be in the mood for love and lots of it.
A few hours later, the Moon meets up with equally sensitive Neptune (inspiration) in Pisces. Even the most stoic of Capricorns and rational Virgos will be feeling the warm fuzzies, which means that this is a good time to connect with those we love or pay it forward with an act of kindness. By late tonight, the intensity starts to build as the Cancer Moon opposes power-hungry Pluto in Capricorn, followed by a meetup with Mars (aggression) in Pisces. Under this combination, hypersensitivity could be an issue. The best thing to do is surround ourselves with people we love, while doing something we love, or reach out to someone for support if our feelings get too overwhelming.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.
And remember to tune into Bustle's weekly horoscopes video live on Facebook every other Monday (beginning on Jan. 9) at 5 p.m. ET for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You may feel pulled in two directions today as one part of you wants to be upfront and the center of attention while the other part of you wants to keep it behind the scenes. While you hate to sit still even for a minute, consider today a needed timeout. Give yourself space heal, dream, create.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Take your ideas seriously now. Look to ways you can monetize something you love doing or that feeds you on a creative level. Opening an online shop, freelancing, or perhaps spearheading a project that improves the lives of others (namely women and children) could open doors.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
If you don't feel as valued as you should when it comes to your professional life, it could be time for you to take a leap of faith and do something that either speaks to you on a more soulful level, or go after an opportunity you've been afraid to take. Your power is in your hands.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
While merging with another human being can be a deeply magical, soulful (and brave) thing to do; know that you're still a separate individual with your own needs, desires, and dreams. You don't necessarily have to fly solo, but you should still give yourself space to fly.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Your magnetism is off the charts now, which means you should find yourself with no shortage of potential mates and dates. If you're feeling brave enough, you could open the door to a love that profoundly touches you or you can stick to the familiar and settle...again. You have a choice.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Your star continues to rise where love and partnership is concerned and today, there's a possibility that you could meet someone new through a friend or a social event so don't be shy. Financially, a business collaboration or joint venture could help you win. Align yourself with the right people.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Today the stars align in a way that could materialize your dream gig, or some much deserved attention for your work. Make sure your resume is up to date and your online profiles are sparkling, because all eyes are on you now. That said, don't let others' opinions of you hold too much weight.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
It's time to move beyond what you know, and that includes what you think you know about love. You could meet someone that's different from your norm and that challenges some of your more set-in ways. Though don't be too guarded. You could use a little shaking up every now and then.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
While you aren't known to be the most sensitive sign of the zodiac, that doesn't mean that you don't have feelings. When it comes to today, it would be good to honor those feelings and tend to the more softer side of you. Know that you don't have to be "on" all the time.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You and your partner should get together and explore or try something new today, as not only will it heighten the romance but you both can grow from it too. If single, you could meet someone at a local spot, on the commute to work, or via a neighbor or someone you know.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Your work life and regular routine takes the spotlight today as you're called to examine whether the work you do feeds you on a financial and emotional level. If not, the cosmos paves the way for you to find something that does both. Make sure your values align with what you're creating.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
What's in your heart, Pisces? Are you manifesting or creating it? If not, here's your chance to focus on not only what moves you but bringing it into being. You're often a muse to many, but now's the time to be that muse for yourself. You know you're capable, so why hold back?
