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. 27, 2017.
The big news of the day brings a tough match between Venus in Pisces and Saturn in Sagittarius and a New Moon in Aquarius; the first New Moon of the year. Under the Venus-Saturn square (which takes place in the early afternoon) there could be hiccups, frustrations, and delays when it comes to love, relationships, and finances. As Pisces is a sign of creativity, romance, illusion, and dreams, Saturn in Sagittarius' reserved, cautious, and telling-it-like-it-is approach puts a damper on Venus in Pisces' more free-flowing ways. However, the combination can help us to avoid relationships or financial situations that may be unrealistic or unrewarding.
On the bright side, the New Moon in Aquarius, which arrives at 7:07 p.m. ET, can help us to turn over a new leaf when it comes to any area in our life where we may be feeling stagnant, stuck, or uninspired. Under the influence of Aquarius, we can break free of imposed rules and structures that fail to support us and radically change our lives as well as the world around us for the better. As the first New Moon of 2017, this bodes well for fresh beginnings especially as the year got off to a slow start.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
There may be some conflict with a dream you have and what it will take to actually make it happen. Don't talk yourself out of anything just yet, though. Look to the people around you to help you with realizing your vision. This project could be the best idea you've had in a while.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You may be feeling a bit discouraged when it comes to your financial obligations in context to your plans for the future. However, you're about to enter a banner month when it comes to your career, which could lead to a pay raise. Take a leap and go after that new position.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
A professional partnership may not be going as planned or you may find that the demands of a romantic partnership conflict with your goals. However, it may be time to go your own way or shift your perspective and way of thinking. Doing it the way you always have won't work.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
A health or work related matter may be interfering with your wanderlust or creative inspiration, though don't lose sight of what's important to you. You may need to ask that your partner show up in a way that they haven't before or find the courage to break free of fear/self-doubt.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You may be feeling like no matter how hard you try, your love life isn't working out the way you want it to, namely, when it comes to getting the deep intimacy and bonding you're craving. However, in matters of the heart, the cosmos is giving you the chance to start fresh. Hello, lover!
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You may feel like you're being taken for granted when it comes to a close relationship. However, this could be a cue that it's time for you to do more for yourself, namely, where self-care is concerned. Look to ways you freshen up your environment and treat yourself better. Renew.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
There's a chance that a job opportunity you were wishing on may not come through or you may not have as much time to do the things that you enjoy as you once did. Still, don't let this get you down. Make your passion a priority and see how quickly things fall in line.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Someone or something that you may be excited about may not turn out to be as good for you as you thought, but don't take this as a sign that all is lost. Right now, you just need to be mindful about what you give your time and resources to. Break free of what doesn't nourish you.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You may feel caught between work and obligations and needing rest, solitude, and time to create. Don't feel guilty about not wanting to take on everything that comes your way, though. Right now, it's about focusing more on what inspires you. Capitalize on your own ideas.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You may start the day feeling a bit disillusioned in terms of getting something that you may have had your sights set on. Know, though, this is because you're set to receive something beyond your wildest dreams, namely, in terms of your career and finances. Go for the gold!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
While a temporary financial constraint may put a damper on your day, recognize that you're in no way close to being done. Today is actually the beginning for the wins to come. Right now focus on what you want and how taking a leap of faith or a new experience can help you get it.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You may be feeling a block in terms of how you see yourself and how others see you, which may make you feel like you need to filter yourself. However, recognize now is the time for you to set your own rules, which begins by you trusting yourself and your personal power. Let go.
