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, 2018.
The Moon moves into broad-minded and visionary Sagittarius today; putting us in the mood for new experiences, travel, and learning new and interesting things. With Mercury and Saturn synced up in Capricorn, whatever we put our minds to, we can accomplish; especially if we're willing to put in the focus and commitment into making it happen. Though with Mercury and serious Saturn together, we'll need to be mindful of having too bleak an outlook or solely focusing on the negative. Though the optimistic Sagittarius Moon will be on hand to boost our spirits and help us with looking on the bright side. Come late tonight, the Moon squares off with dreamy Neptune in Pisces, which could be for dreaming and creative inspiration, though not so good for thinking clearly. As such we should lean on the planets in Capricorn and stick to the facts.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
It's not enough that you know what you know. You have to back up what you know too, especially with others looking to you now for your expertise. Make sure you have receipts. Look to this time to learn, study, and research. There's a good chance you can learn something you might not have known before.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You may be called to speak your truth today and as passionate as you're feeling right now, there's no need to try and sugarcoat anything you say. Right now is the time for calling it out you see it, no matter how uncomfortable it may make you or others feel. This is how you truly affect change in the world.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You might have to have a conversation today with your partner or someone close to you about money and resources. There are details or an agreement that needs to be hashed out. Meanwhile, while you may want to help someone out, you may have to be realistic about what you can do. Set boundaries.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
When it comes to the amount of things on your plate that you have to do, ask for help. You have someone on your team that's willing to step in and support you, all you need to do is ask. Otherwise, you can get quickly overwhelmed if you try to take on everything yourself. Feedback can help you spot the holes.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You've got love and adventure on your mind, but there may be more pressing things on the table for you to take care of first. It's not that you can't have any fun today, you just need to prioritize. When it comes to love, be mindful of seeing only what you want to see. Use discernment with someone new.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
It's time to take your fun and entertainment seriously. If you feel like you've been out of the loop when it comes to art, entertainment, and leisure then it's time to make a concerted effort to get back into the game and introduce yourself to something new. In love, don't get carried away too soon.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
While you may have a ton of things going on today, it'll be important that you make time to do something that helps you stay calm and grounded. Perhaps this could be meditation or spending time in the company of family you love. Either way, set limits on how much you do so you don't burn yourself out.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
When it comes to your ideas and talents, don't be so quick to give them away. Make sure you're getting the compensation that you deserve for your genius. Though if for any reason you're feeling like you need to fill in the gaps when it comes to what you know, this is also a good time to dig in and study.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You could be feeling a bit sensitive today, though before you go comparing yourself to someone else or something that may have happened in the past, know that you are the one that dictates your worth. Honor that worth. In terms of money, a budget may be in order. Keep track of your cash.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Your words carry weight now, so it's important to pay attention to how you're using them. Are you using your words to heal or to hurt? Criticism can be constructive and destructive. Which side of the fence are you on? Still, if you need to get something off your chest, now is a good time. Be heard.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
If you have a project on your plate that calls for your full attention, it's a good time for working on it behind the scenes uninterrupted. On another note, if you find yourself beset with dread or worry, don't suffer in silence. Your friends could be a source of support and encouragement for you today.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You may need to put a friend or someone you know in their place today, especially when it comes to something based on principal. If you need to hold your ground, do so. What you have to say is important. On a different note, it's time to take a goal seriously and put in the time and dedication required.
