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. 19, 2017.
There's two major cosmic events that go down today, with the first one being a square off between Mars in Pisces and Saturn in Sagittarius. Under the influence of these two, frustration and delays will be abound as cautious and responsible Saturn gets in the way of impulsive and free-spirited Mars. While the day make take off to a very slow start, with challenges along the way, the best way to work with this energy is to take our time — especially when it comes to new endeavors. Though at their best, Mars in creative and dreamy Pisces provides us with inspiration while Saturn in visionary Sagittarius can lend us the resolve and resilience to see that inspiration through.
The second major cosmic event for today happens when the Sun enters Aquarius, kicking off a month-long celebration of the zodiac sign known for its brilliant ideas, humanitarian heart, rebellious attitude, and unique style. As such, our mission will be to celebrate the Aquarius in us all. By the early evening, the Moon shifts into the murky waters of Scorpio, which should put us in the mood for secrets, sex, and revenge. Yes, that's right — revenge, as Scorpio is a sign that feels so deeply it'll be hard not to take anything personally today. Moments after the Moon enters Scorpio, she squares off with the Aquarius Sun, which should add to the push-pull vibe started by the Mars-Saturn square. As such, expect a battle between head and heart today as we work to keep both happy.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
A plan or goal you have may seem like it's not gelling together in the way that you want, especially if money or debt is an issue. Though what you want can still be possible if you're willing to merge your resources with a partner or ask for help from someone close to you. Be open to receiving.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Now that your star is on the rise, you may find that some of your relationships will begin to change as you step into your newfound power. As there may be some people who won't be too thrilled about your success. Recognize that this is a reflection on them more than anything. Just keep doing your thing.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You may find yourself being pulled in 10 different directions today, namely between your career and relationship, though it seems all you want to do is get away. While you can't drop everything, this could be a reminder to frequently set some time aside for yourself as a means of self-care.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
While you may be inspired to take on new experiences, projects, and passions; you're still learning what warrants your time and energy and what doesn't. If things feel slow going today, that's a good thing. Take your time and get clear about what you really want. Not everything is for you.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
There's a strong chance that you and your lover may not see eye-to-eye today which could dredge up an old, unresolved issue from the past. While the tension between you may be thick, all is not lost. Use this time to sit and really hear each other out, without anyone needing to be "right".
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
No one expects you to do everything on your own, and if they do, it's time to speak up and let those folks know it's not happening. Know that while you often like to help others; taking on someone else's burden is not your job. Besides, there's things going on in your own life you need to handle.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You may be feeling a bit off today where your professional life is concerned as it seems like there's a ton of work to do but your heart may not be entirely in it. This could be a signal that you need to move on to something that stimulates you and your wallet. Don't limit yourself.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You could feel blocked today when it comes to doing something you really want to do versus the money that you may or may not get for it. While you're learning lessons around your self-worth, it may be worth challenging beliefs that you've inherited about yourself, money, and what you do. Free yourself.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
There could be some contention today between you and a family member (or someone close to you), which could have you seething beneath the surface. Though you may want to verbally rip into this person, venting to a friend first may help you find the solution you need.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You may be feeling a bit apprehensive about going full steam ahead on a plan of yours as you're worried if the time and effort you're putting into it is worth all of the trouble. Though before you get discouraged, recognize that now is the time where you should dig in the hardest. You'll get there.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
There may be a conflict in how you see yourself and how others see you, which may lead you to think that maybe doing things your way isn't the best way after all. However, it's important to understand that you were born to be different. Others will get on board or they won't. Either is fine.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
You may be ready to pursue an opportunity with guns blazing, but you may need to temper some of that enthusiasm with some practicality. For instance, how exactly will you make the most of this opportunity, and is it something that's truly for you? Slow and steady wins the race.
