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. 24, 2018.
The skies are much calmer today as the Moon moves into laid back and grounded Taurus this morning, putting us in the mood for comfort, sensual pleasures, and work that keeps us happily busy. Under a Taurus Moon our needs turn to practical matters, like planning for our financial future or caring for our physical bodies. We might find that we're especially focused on these kinds of matters as communicative Mercury in Capricorn joins forces with powerful Pluto by the late afternoon, followed by a meetup between the Taurus Moon and responsible Saturn in Capricorn just moments later. With the help of this planetary combo, we should be able to find the focus, determination, and discipline to accomplish whatever we set our minds on.
By the early evening, when the Taurus Moon squares off with the Sun in unconventional Aquarius, we may feel conflicted between getting what we want and getting what we need. The best way to solve this dilemma is by coupling a new approach (Aquarius) with a practical plan (Taurus).
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
