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. 15, 2018.
The Moon remains in hardworking Capricorn, making it the sixth — yes, sixth — planet to join Team Cap. With tomorrow's New Moon in Capricorn approaching, we should find ourselves hyper-focused on our plans, goals, and financial security — especially as the Moon meets up with Mercury in Capricorn during the wee hours of the morning. By the late afternoon, the Moon meets up with dreamy Neptune in Pisces, which reminds us that we have the power to make our dreams come true with a little work, dedication, and intuition. At the same time, we're also reminded not to be too hard on ourselves. If have things we still have yet to accomplish, it doesn't necessarily matter when we do. With Capricorn, it's not about rushing to a finish line but about being persistent and resilient until the job is done, while gaining wisdom and expertise along the way. By late tonight, when Jupiter in Scorpio meets up with Pluto in Capricorn, it's the perfect time to commit to leaving behind what we no longer need in exchange for something fresh and worthwhile.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You could manifest a dream opportunity. Though whatever you have your heart set on, it will require that you follow through with it past the initial excitement. It's time to work on releasing old patterns that may have held you back up until now. Stay focused but don't lose hope; your hard work matters.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Look towards working with people that can show you the ropes or take you under their wing when it comes to making a vision of yours a reality. Their resources coupled with your ingenuity and talent could help you to make significant progress. If you have a client base, you could see big growth.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Your finances could get a boost today, perhaps through a raise or a bonus. If you've been looking for a new job, don't shy away from negotiating a salary that feels right for you.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
There's a chance for you to manifest a relationship with some serious long- term potential. Though you have to be fearless when it comes to opening your heart and believing that what you want exists. This isn't to say you have to be available to anyone that shows interest but you do have to be available.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
When it comes to your goals, whether it's breaking a bad habit, improving your health, or handling your workload like a boss, believe in yourself. Don't measure your current progress against what happened or did not happen in the past. Try to stay focused on the present and remember you are capable.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Your creative energy is so potent right now, you should have your head, sketchbook, journal, etc. swirling with ideas. Though don't get so caught up in the obsession of having a finished, perfect project that you don't even give yourself a chance to get started. Things will organically come together.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
If you've been toying with the idea of moving, it may be time for you to take the plunge and get the ball rolling no matter how daunting it may seem right now. There's light at the other end of this tunnel. Meanwhile, when it comes to troubling family history and relationships, it's time to take space to heal.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Has your focus become so narrow that you're unable to see the options around you? While you should keep an eye on the details, don't forget there's a bigger picture at play. It's time to take some risks on something bigger but it's going to start with you opening your mind. Expand your horizons.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
A financial opportunity or blessing could come your way today, that helps to restore your faith in something bigger. Meanwhile, if you've been thinking about making some money moves but have been apprehensive about whether you'll get what you want, the cosmos is here to remind you sky's the limit.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
When others look at you, they're not looking for perfection but for authenticity. Keep that in mind when you feel yourself needing to hold up a certain image, especially when it comes to how you feel. You have people in your corner that believe in you. Make sure you believe in you too.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Even though it may feel like you're working in slow motion, know that the working you're doing is still making an impact even if you can't immediately see it. Sometimes you need to take a slow, organic approach rather than trying to force things to happen. Continue shooting for the moon.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
It's time to take something you've been dreaming about doing seriously. Even if you don't know 100 percent where to begin, you have people around you that can show you the way. Reach out and connect with them. Know that your dreams are valid. Give yourself a chance to turn them into something real.
