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. 16, 2017.
The Moon finishes up her transit through analytical Virgo today, which should keep us focused on the practical, day-to-day side of life. However, the vibe gets a bit hairy today when the Virgo Moon opposes hypersensitive and dreamy Mars in Pisces followed by a square off with hardnosed Saturn in Sagittarius. Under this combination, we may feel fired up and ready to attack at a moment's notice — especially when it comes to getting something we want, though responsible Saturn seems to throw a monkey wrench in even the best laid of plans. However a delay might not be the worst thing to happen as it could help to keep us from jumping the gun.
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 5p.m. ET for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You may find that your energy comes in spurts now, which means that this is your opportunity to improve on how you spend it and conserve it. Look to ways you can better manage stress — like increasing the amount of sleep you get or being more picky about the tasks/projects you agree to do.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
When it comes to romance and intimacy; security — namely material security is necessary but it doesn't cancel out your emotional needs or having an actual rapport with your partner. As you go forward in love, take care note to shortchange yourself from what's truly valuable.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You may be wondering if you can juggle it all — your partner, home/family, and your career ambitions. Though before you get stressed out or discouraged, recognize that you're more resilient and capable than you give yourself credit. Push through.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You may feel like no matter how hard you try today, you just can't seem to get anything done. Though before you lose your cool, recognize that this could be your opportunity to let go of an old way of doing something as well an outdated perspective. It's time for something different.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
When it comes to your talent, energy, and resources — are you giving it away for free? The thing about getting what you want is that it often means that you have to already know that it's yours. Part of that includes showing others that you're in no way settling for less. Believe in your worth.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You may not see eye to eye today with your partner (either in business or romance), which may make you feel like your needs or concerns aren't being addressed. Though don't sweep the tension/issue between you under the rug. This needs to be aired out so it can be worked out.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
When it comes to the work that you do — how emotionally connected to it are you? Understand that an emotional connection to your work is not always a good thing, especially if you're taking it home with you long after you're done. If the emotional investment is draining you, it's time for a change.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
It may seem like something you've been planning isn't exactly coming together in the way you've been wanting it to, largely where your finances are concerned. However, before you get discouraged, this could just be a cue that your plan needs a little more work/tweaking.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You may think you're keeping everything together while others, especially those closest to you may be seeing something else. Instead of stewing in your feelings, pretending that nothing is wrong, find a healthy way to release the pressure you're under so you can heal and move on.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You may be in the mood to argue today, though before your verbally rip someone to shreds, consider if this person is able to push your buttons because they represent a piece of you that you're afraid to acknowledge. A little self-reflection is needed.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You may be in the mood for some retail therapy today. However, you may need to question if you're buying things because you truly need them or because you want to feel better. While a little splurging is nice, take care you're not using stuff as a substitute for true therapy or healing.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
While others may be expecting you to cater to them — as usual — you may find yourself in more of a feisty mood than usual and not up for playing nice. Though don't worry too much about offending others or rubbing people the wrong way. Right now, it's about putting yourself first.
