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. 18, 2017.
The Moon continues to travel through Libra, which means that much of our focus remains on our relationships and creative energy. Through Libra, the goal is to bring balance and harmony to our lives and the lives of others by wit, charm, and common courtesy. However, with the Moon squaring off with obsessive Pluto in Capricorn this afternoon, followed by an opposition to rebellious Uranus in Aries, we may feel off-balance when it comes to our relationships and getting what we want. The best way to work with this energy is to take stock of where we may be playing it too safe (or too comfortable) and digging in and finding the courage to move forward.
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)
When it comes to your relationship and career goals, you may be feeling a push-pull between doing what you want and what others expect of you. Though it's important to remember you were never meant to fall in line with what everyone is doing. Go in a different direction.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You could feel a bit discontented today as something you believe or thought you needed, no longer seems to fit your everyday life; like your current job. However, this discomfort that you're feeling is a good thing. It's meant to shake you out of your sleep. Break through.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You’re not always the one for listening to how you feel, but what if the key to getting what you want was to honor those feelings you so want to ignore? This is especially the case when it comes to a romance or friendship now that may be asking you for more than its worth. Trust your gut.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You could be feeling like the weight of your career, family, and partnership is coming down on you now as you're pulled into ten different directions. Understand the pressure you're feeling is to help you get better about asking for help and setting better boundaries. Go easy.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
There's this saying that goes "insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results." Have you been guilty of this? Today could be a wake-up call that it's time for a change, particularly where your diet, health, or job is concerned. Above all, moderation is key.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
When it comes to your skills and talents are you investing enough into them? While a monetary investment is nice, it could just be that you need to put more time and energy into your abilities as you're capable of so much more. Know your value, so that others will do the same.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Take care of yourself. Whether it’s by blowing off some steam with a good sweat session, getting in a good cry or some gut-busting laughs, treat yourself to a something that offers you therapeutic benefits. Your body knows what it needs. Listen and tune in.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You’re usually the silent type but you may find yourself with the urge to get something off your chest today, which may actually be a good thing. Instead of dwelling on something silently for days on end, deal with the elephant in the room and say what needs to be said.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You can’t always do it all by yourself. Even though you value your freedom and hate following in the footsteps of others, you’re going to have to connect and establish relationships with others if you’re serious about your money, as the opportunities you get will be about who you know.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Could it be time for a change in your career trajectory or a relocation to improve your career? You're known to like your stability, but it's possible that something that you may be holding on to is no longer benefiting you the way you think it is. It's time to step out of your comfort zone.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Continue to think globally as you could get the opportunity to branch out and do something vastly different from what you do now like traveling for work or getting the opportunity to see your name in print. Overall, try not to let self-doubts to get in the way. You can do this.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Is someone else’s demands asking you for more than you're capable of giving? While you hate to be hard on others, namely those you’ve known forever, you may have to put your foot down and recognize that you can’t save everyone. Allow people to fix their own problems.
