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. 12, 2017.
The vibe for today is wild enough to have us all howling at the Moon. Not only do we have a very emotional Full Moon in Cancer, but that sensitive Cancer Moon will be caught in a crossfire between cantankerous Uranus in Aries and Jupiter in Libra which favors reason over feelings. Keep in mind that in order to have a Full Moon, the Moon must be in an opposition to the Sun. With the Sun in stern Capricorn, it's safe to say that this Cancer Moon won't exactly be feeling the love. This means that down here on Earth, we'll more than likely be feeling the same way which could translate into some nasty arguments, emotional outbursts, and clingy feelings. And all of this goes down before noon!
However, there a few saving graces for the day which begins just after the Full Moon when Mercury moves back into Capricorn. With Full Moons representing an end or completion of a cycle, we can expect the Full Moon in Cancer to reveal what needs to be let go (or affirmed), while Mercury in Capricorn helps us to handle our revelations with a cool and pragmatic head. Later in the afternoon, there's a happy meeting between Venus and Neptune in Pisces. With these two planets in such a compassionate, intuitive, and creative sign we should find a renewed sense of faith that everything will work out just fine, especially when it comes to relationships and money matters. By the evening, the Moon bids adieu to the choppy waters of Cancer and enters playful Leo.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
An emotional encounter with a family member or someone close could be the springboard you need to finally break free of the past, which may include a move or relocation. As such, let this be a reminder that you can't afford to live from the outside in anymore. Be true to yourself and your own needs.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
It's time to snap out of your rut. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself wanting to travel and explore and soak up everything around you, because your brain is hungry for the stimulation. If you haven't the slightest idea where to start, let your passion be your guide. A new journey awaits!
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You could receive the shakeup you need today to stop settling for less than what you’re worth or allowing others to devalue you and what you do. On the subject of value, could it be time to rethink yours? Or rather is there a misalignment in terms of what you have and what you desire?
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You may decide to end a relationship that no longer offers you any growth, hinders your freedom, or doesn’t align with the person that you want to be. Since emotions will be running high now, try not to make any snap decisions. Though don't deny your keen intuition either. Let the answer come to you.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Don't try to minimize or ignore your feelings now. There's a reason that you feel the way you do. While it might not be easy, you're better off using this time to work on releasing self-limiting beliefs, feelings of spiritual lack, or a fear that you’ve been trying to run away from. It's time to heal.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You may be forced to confront a friend or someone you know regarding your boundaries or the possibility that the relationship between the two of you is one-sided. Don’t lose too much sleep over it as you probably could have sensed this was coming. Pay attention to what you see and what you feel.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You could make an abrupt exit from your current job, relocating, or setting your sights on an entrepreneurial endeavor. Since emotions will be running high at this time, leaving you feeling like you’re being stretched in 10 different directions, it may be best to wait until the dust settles though.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Today could bring just the kind of shakeup you need to keep you from getting complacent or stuck. Your freedom is paramount now and that means more than just being able to come and go as you please. Freedom also means being able to see/experience the world in a way you haven't before.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You could experience a crisis around your money and resources today that puts you in a panic, though instead of freaking out, look to this moment as your impetus to improve how you spend, save, and earn your money. Understand that financial security is a form of freedom too.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You may need to address concerns with your business partner or significant other today, namely those that you two have been trying to avoid or sweep under the rug. As a result, you may decide to end a relationship or may need to have a hard, long talk with your partner about the future.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You could find out some news around your health that could push you to begin taking better care of yourself or suddenly leave a job that’s been more stress than its worth. While anxiety may be running high around this time, try not to make an impulsive decision. Instead, pay attention to synchronicity.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
You're called to zone in on your heart space today, as you may decide to end a love affair or your faith in yourself may be tested. However, don’t let any of this shake you up too badly. Know that you deserve to be with someone who adores you while at the same time you need to begin adoring you too.
