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 January 16, 2019.
The Moon remains in grounded Taurus, putting us in the mood to get stable and grounded, too. Since Taurus is a sign that's associated with wealth and resources, this is a perfect day for tending to financial matters, especially as the Moon teams up with the Sun in business-savvy Capricorn by the mid-afternoon. Under this Sun-Moon match up, we should also find success when it comes to our professional lives or any activity that requires hard work and determination.
With Taurus and Capricorn being earth signs, today is also a good day for nourishing and caring for our physical bodies. Plus, with the Taurus Moon meeting up with wounded Chiron in Pisces by the late afternoon, we should find ourselves in need of some healing and TLC. By the evening, the vibe picks back up again as the Moon enters chatty Gemini, putting the focus on our communication and curiosity.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and be sure to check out your January 2019 horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
