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. 23, 2017.
The Moon (feelings) continues her trek through visionary and optimistic Sagittarius today, which should put us in the mood for new experiences, adventures, and possibilities. Meanwhile, Mercury (communication) in Capricorn makes a happy connection with Neptune (dreams) in Pisces, which can help us to make some of our big ideas happen through research, focus, and practical application. By late tonight the Sagittarius Moon meets up with Uranus (radical change) in Aries, followed by a square-off with Venus (love, money) in Pisces. Under these cosmic combos we feel the itch to break free, though we'll have to be very clear about what we're leaving behind.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Though things still feel a bit stop-start for you, know that the seeds you're planting now are taking root which should yield you some big returns. Continue to push forward even though progress seems a bit slow going. Things are going to pick up very soon.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
This is a good day to make tweaks and updates to your current financial plans as the moment is ripe for using what you have to manifest something greater such as a loan, a new house, car, or another major investment. Though don't try to go too far out of your means. Keep it simple.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
There could be a hiccup or two between you and a partner today around your joint finances. However, this is a good opportunity to hash out a financial plan that works for you both, which may include drawing better boundaries around money/spending.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You could meet someone or may have met someone that sweeps you off of your feet. Though before you get too carried away, it may be a good idea to glow slow and see if this person has a real place in your everyday life. If you're not single, how can you two have more fun?
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Although you tend to be a fearless leader, sometimes you can hold yourself back for the sake of others' feelings. However, you may be realizing how working too hard to keep someone else happy is putting wear and tear on you. It's time to cut yourself a break.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
If your love life hasn't been going in the way that you want it to, this would be a good time to take a moment and get honest and clear about what you deeply desire. Perhaps doing a ritual around love or working to clear blockages around trust and intimacy can help.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
If anxiety or depression has been an issue for you, today would be a good time to seek out the help that you need to address it. As you may find there's some deep rooted feelings that you have that need to be brought up and released. Let this be the start of your healing.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
A job or financial opportunity could present itself today, if you're willing to make it known that you're looking. Perhaps you could get a lead from a friend or submit an application at just the right time. Though know you may have to balance your passion with pragmatism.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
It's no use staying stuck in the past now, Sagittarius as whatever it is that you think you need or may be trying to hold on to, has to be let go so you can receive something much better. Trust that while things may seem uncomfortable, it's only temporary.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You should be brimming with inspiration today, which is the perfect time to channel all of this energy into a creative project or endeavor. While things may also seem a bit hazy right now, trust that you are your own best compass. Go where you feel called.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You may have a vision for where you'd like your life to go, though getting there may not be as hard as you think. Ultimately, you may need to give yourself permission to not only go after the things you crave but to receive them too. Claim your bounty.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
If you want to continue to make strides in your career, this is a great time to reach out and connect with others that could make that wish possible. Whether it's through face-to-face meetings or via social media, focus on the "who you know" as it could bring cash.
