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. 2, 2017.
Happy 2017! After the excitement of ringing in the New Year, the Moon cools down the vibe considerably when she moves into sensitive and dreamy Pisces this morning. Under a Pisces Moon, we should feel ready to kick back, relax, and dream up all of the wonderful things we'd like to see happen over the coming months - especially as the Moon makes a friendly visit with Mercury in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces. The combination of these three could also have some of us feeling nostalgic and and a bit moody. Though the best way to alleviate any of those feelings is by surrounding ourselves with the people we love the most.
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 4 p.m. ET for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You may feel inundated with emotions today though instead of letting them get the best of you where you feel hopeless or bad for yourself, utilize how you feel as a signal that it's time to let something go. And you'll know exactly what needs to go as it's something that no longer makes you happy no matter how hard you try.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You get by with a little help from your friends today, especially those you haven't seen in a while. Though friendship could be a touchy subject for you today as a certain someone could come calling on your help yet again. While there's nothing wrong with being there for a friend, you don't always have to play hero.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
When it comes to your career, are you getting the recognition that you deserve? If not, it may be time to consider how you may be giving your personal power away waiting on affirmation from others. While you should be celebrated for your hard work, don't use the approval of others to gauge your self-worth. You run the show.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You may feel a deep craving to break away from the everyday hum-drum now as deep down you know that there's more out there and you're ready to see, taste, touch, and live it. This is a good thing, because it's was starting to get a little to stale around these parts anyway. Let your passion be your guide.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You may find yourself more introspective than usual today, which is a good time for a personal check-in. Are you getting as much out of your life as you could be? Or are you just safely skimming the surface? Oftentimes, the best way to get past what scares you is to face your fears head on. Let the Lioness out.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
While grinding tends to be a lifestyle for you, know that you can't do it all by yourself (even though you may really, really like to). That's why it's important to lean on your partner or someone just as close, before things get overwhelming. And no, they're not expecting you to be perfect; just available.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
It's time to get on top of your business and knock anything off your list that you may have put off up until now. This also includes your yearly check-up or a visit with a health specialist. You'll be quite busy in the coming months and you want to make sure you're ready to tackle or take advantage of what comes your way.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Romance, creativity, and self-expression are at the forefront today which means that your inner muse will need lots and lots of attention. You could be inspired to create your next masterpiece or fall head over heels for a seductive stranger (what else is new?!). Overall, you're extra juicy today. Don't let it go to waste.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Home is where your heart is today, so make time to connect with family (especially the women in your life) as the sense of support and nurturing will ground you. And speaking of home, this is a good time to examine what it means to you as you prep for new transitions/experiences. Stick close to your (emotional) center.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Expect to be busy today, which means your thoughts will probably going 1,ooo miles per minute. While you don't want to hit overload, it should feel good to have the synapses firing again as a fresh perspective on an old situation could help you take something to the next level or put it to rest completely. New is good.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Your mind is on your money today as you may be examining your sense of stability. While you probably won't strike it rich overnight, you may still have resources available to you that you may be allowing to go to waste or not using at all. Ultimately, trust that the universe is always working to bring you the best.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
Now we get to the good part: you. Though if you're not feeling as good about you as you should, today is a perfect day to change that. Invest in some self-pampering, even if it's simply (and gently) telling someone "no" to avoid the burden of taking on something you don't want. Honor your needs first.
