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 2, 2019.
Although the Moon moves into happy-go-lucky Sagittarius early this morning, we might find ourselves taking the day a bit seriously as the Sun joins up with no-nonsense Saturn in Capricorn. Under this Sun-Saturn combo, we should find ourselves motivated to take on some of our biggest goals and ready to put in the effort and dedication to meet them. However, this cosmic combination can also have us feeling self-critical and overly fearful of failure or making mistakes. We'll have to look to the Moon in Sagittarius, to help us with keeping a sense of humor and an optimistic outlook. With the Moon teaming up with adventurous Mars in Aries, finding that optimism shouldn't be hard to do.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and be sure to check out your January 2019 horoscope.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
