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. 17, 2018.
Fresh off the heels of yesterday's New Moon in Capricorn, the Moon shifts into unconventional Aquarius, encouraging us to follow through with our plans for something fresh and new. As Aquarius season approaches, our attention begins to shift towards making breakthroughs and radical changes as a means of progressing forward. By late this evening, the electricity in the air continues to grow stronger as Venus, the planet of relationships and money, joins Team Aquarius. Over the next few weeks, we'll be called to think outside of the box when it comes to how we make and manage our cash. Meanwhile, when it comes to love and relationships, a fun, friendly, and non-traditional approach will get the sparks flying.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today.
