Your Daily Horoscope For January 20, 2017
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. 20, 2017.
The Moon remains in intense Scorpio, which means whatever feelings come up for today, we'll be hyper aware of them for better and for worse. However, the Moon makes a supportive aspect to Mercury in Capricorn in the early a.m., which is perfect for focusing and getting down to business, cutting through the BS, and speaking our mind. By mid-morning, Venus in Pisces makes a friendly connection to Pluto in Capricorn, which means if we're seductive and charming enough, there's just about nothing we can't have. In the afternoon, the Scorpio Moon rounds out the day with a friendly meetup with dreamy Neptune in Pisces, heightening our intuition, creativity, and sensitivity. If we believe in and feel something strongly enough, there's a good chance it could happen.
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)
Your magnetism is off the charts today, which means you could attract a dream opportunity (or a dream lover) if your head is in the right place. If you have yet to set your 2017 intentions or need to work on your vision board, this is a great time to do it. Keep your eyes on the prize.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
If you've been on the hunt for a new opportunity, whether it be professional, educational, or otherwise; this is a great day to reach out and connect with others who can open doors for you or at the very least, point you in the right direction. It's time for Team Taurus to expand.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
A dream job opportunity could be in the works for you, which means today is a great day to restart your job search or kick it into high gear. In between resumes and applications, it will be good if you can get in a face-to-face meeting too. Wit and charm are on your side.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Partnership is the focus for today on both a professional and romantic level. On the business front, you could seal an agreement that helps to boost you and your work while providing you the opportunity to travel, study, or teach. Romantically, love is best in new yet idyllic places.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
When it comes to your daily habits and routines, how much down time do you give yourself? And by "down time" I don't mean time spent on the couch watching TV, but the time you give yourself to meditate, journal, reflect, and tend to the more tender pieces of you. Unplug.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You could meet a sexy someone that piques you're interest by way of a friend or a local haunt, which means you should make sure you're looking your best today. Though if you're not single, you should find that some intimate quality time with bae is just what you need to fuel you up.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Your focus is on your finances today, which means more than likely you're also thinking about your job; or more specifically, if it's time for a new one (or a second one?). If you're on the market for a new gig, you can manifest an opportunity. Though, you'll already have to believe it's yours.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Your creative energy should be skyrocketing now which means if there's a creative project on your plate, you could make lots of headway with it today. Don't have a creative project? Well, this is the time for you to start getting some of those genius ideas out into the Universe. Go big.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Your intuition is spot on right now, so it's important you pay close attention to it, especially when it comes to synchronous meetings, messages, or moments. Leads on financial opportunities could also come up now, especially if you work from home or are looking to relocate. Trust your instincts.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You tend to lead a solitary kind of life but right now you get by with a little help from your friends, especially the women or femmes in your life. So if there's a plan you have in mind, or you're dreaming up some other fantastic scheme, call on the people that love you most.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You could make a career coup d'etat today if 1) you're willing to trust your sharp instinct and 2) you recognize how valuable your contributions are. If you want the gold, you're going to have to go after it. Just make sure you don't allow anyone (even yourself) to have you believe you don't deserve it.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
You have a strong desire to get away from it all today, which means this is an excellent time to get together with a friend or two and take off for uncharted, yet exciting territory. See, taste, explore something new and discover a way to fall in love again with the world around you.
