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. 3, 2018

The Moon shifts into playful and romantic Leo today, putting us in the mood for fun, games, and perhaps some flirting too. With the Moon in Leo, our focus turns towards expressing ourselves through our creative gifts, as well as a need to be seen. As a result, we may find that we're feeling more fabulous and inspired than usual. Though one thing we may have to look out for under a Leo Moon is becoming to needy for attention, which could stir up drama and unnecessary competition. However, as magnanimous and generous Leo is, we're reminded that there's enough room to share the spotlight. That said, the Leo Moon could give us the confidence we need to stand out and be noticed.

Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today.

Tina Gong/Bustle

Time to get your mojo back as your love life and self-confidence are spotlighted. Reach down deep and connect to what makes you special and you can't lose. Meanwhile, you might be feeling the urge to express yourself creatively. Don't pull any punches. Go hard on your inspiration or go home.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Tina Gong/Bustle

Your private life takes the focus today as you mull over the possibility of moving or relocating. Your opportunity to lay down roots on steadier ground and break away from the past is upon you. How will you take advantage of the opportunity? Be open to releasing what you no longer need to receive better.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Tina Gong/Bustle

You've got something worthwhile to say and for now everyone is all ears. The attention couldn't come at a better time as the ideas you put into motion now could land you in the spotlight or get your name in print. No more moving without intention or a strategy. The world is open. Plan your route.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Tina Gong/Bustle

Your finances are at the front of your mind today, which begs the question as to whether you've been allowing yourself to settle for less than you're worth. If the answer is yes, you're being called to not only examine why but to also put an end to it. You have power. Make sure you're putting it too good use.

Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)

Tina Gong/Bustle

The cosmic spotlight is back on you today and it's your time to check in with how you're feeling. If you're not exactly feeling the love today, look to way you can give yourself some extra pampering. At the same time, you might need to tell someone how you feel today, if only to get it off your chest. Breathe.

Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)

Tina Gong/Bustle

It's time to dial it back; way back. You love the rush of keeping busy with a hundred things to do on you list but you might be on your way to burn out. Look to ways you can better protect your health and sanity by making space to decompress and unplug. Even a good old-fashioned nap will do.

Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)

Tina Gong/Bustle

Could your friend's list use a refresh? Now's the time to think about your relationships and allegiances in terms of an investment. What are you receiving in exchange for your time, resources, and attention? Not that you have to take a tit for tat approach but you don't need another hanger-on.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)

Tina Gong/Bustle

Hello, Scorpio. Your career is calling. How can you feel more fulfilled at what you do? Hint it may mean stepping up to the plate and refusing to allow yourself to play the rear. The world is ready for your unique offering. It's time to rise to the challenge. Bring your A game. We're expecting you.

Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)

Tina Gong/Bustle

It's time to broaden your horizons. With responsibility and stability being a big focus for you lately, it may have made your world smaller than you're used to seeing it. A change is on the horizon though. Focus on the new things that you'd like to get into and start diving into them. It'll come together.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)

Tina Gong/Bustle

Now that a new year is upon you it's time to come up with an active plan to reduce debt or to make a major investment (like purchasing a house or insurance) that will pay off for you for years to come. When it comes to relationships it's time to kiss a manipulative or toxic person goodbye.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)

Tina Gong/Bustle

Two heads are better than one right now when it comes to moving forward. As such, think of ways you may be able to collaborate with others to help you broaden your pool of resources and get your business done. Meanwhile, be wary of giving your energy to clingy or manipulative people.

Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)

Tina Gong/Bustle

Sometimes self-care involves doing the things that you don't want to do like going to bed at a reasonable hour or making sure you eat your veggies. Today, your goal is to knock at least one thing you've been procrastinating on off your list, so you can stop being bogged down with old stuff. Move forward.
