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. 26, 2018.
It's a high-energy kind of day today as Mars, the planet of action and motivation, leaves the dark waters of Scorpio for fun-loving and optimistic Sagittarius early this morning, while the Moon shifts into chatty Gemini. With Mars in Sagittarius over the next few weeks, we'll find that we're motivated most by the draw of new experiences, far away places, and doing the right thing. Meanwhile, with the Moon in Gemini, we may find it hard to sit still as Gemini pushes us to get curious about the world around us. This energy intensifies by the mid-afternoon as the Gemini Moon opposes Mars in Sagittarius. Since both signs are known for their big words and big ideas, we may have to be mindful of getting into arguments with others, especially when it comes to defending our beliefs or getting a point across. When the Gemini Moon brushes up against no-nonsense Saturn in Capricorn later in the day, we're called to pay attention the facts before anything else.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
It may have felt like you've been walking through mud over the past few weeks, but the vibe is about to dramatically shift. While you still may have lots of work on your plate, it's time to find a balance between work and play as a serious craving for adventure is about to kick in. Switch up the pace.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Your finances take the spotlight today, as you may find yourself itching to buy something new. While you shouldn't deny yourself, you may have to set something aside for an unexpected expense. Meanwhile, if you've been unfairly carrying a financial responsibility, it's time to do something about it.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You and your partner or someone close to you might be at odds today, especially if it seems like you're being taken for granted. While an argument may seem inevitable, it's important for you to be upfront about your feelings and draw your boundaries as necessary. You don't have to compromise.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You may feel pulled between needing a nap and needing to take care of the 50 things on your to-do list today. The solution? Don't try to cram everything into one day as it will only leave you feeling cranky and overwhelmed. Tend to the most pressing things and rest as you need to.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You get by with some help from your friends today, as time spent with them doing something you love could be just the thing you need to boost your spirits. On a separate note, your creative spark turns into a roaring fire now, helping you to come up with something brilliant. Indulge in your passion.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You might find yourself pulled between the demands of your career and the demands of your private life today, which could have you feeling overwhelmed if you're not careful. Where could you stand to be a bit demanding regarding your own needs right now? Don't look to others to validate you. Look within.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You might find yourself feeling extra opinionated today. Though, when it comes to the things you say, are you using your words to make a difference or simply adding to the noise that's already there? Meanwhile, your brain is craving to learn something new. Break away from the daily monotony.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You've got your money on your mind today, which means it's a good time to be proactive about finding new avenues of income or following up on unpaid invoices. Be clear on what you want when negotiating. At the same time, you may want to set up a budget for yourself so you're not tempted to overspend.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You've got the eye of the tiger now, which means there's very little that can stand in your way, especially those people in your life that may be a little too demanding of your time and energy. If someone has been asking too much of you, remember that you have a say in how much you give. No need to explain.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Self-care is the focus for you today, as you're called to pay extra attention to what your mind, body, and soul need. Don't be afraid about taking some alone time or leaving others to sort out their own stuff for right now. On a different note, make sure that what you give your time to now is emotionally fulfilling.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You're known for being unconventional but even you can sometimes get stuck in a rut. If this has happened to you lately, the stars ask that you do something different today and give in to your more adventurous side. This may call for a shakeup of your social circle. Look to connect with those that inspire you.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You might find your patience running thin today when it comes to your supervisor or someone you report to at work. While you shouldn't make any hasty decisions when it comes to your job, this tension could be the motivation you need to find something more fulfilling. Trust your gut.
