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. 30, 2018.
With a powerful Full Moon and Lunar Eclipse in Leo approaching tomorrow, we can expect the intensity in the air to go up several notches, especially with the sensitive Cancer Moon squaring off with unpredictable Uranus in Aries and opposing pragmatic Mercury in Capricorn. As a result of this planetary mashup, we may be feeling some fears around letting something (or someone) we've grown accustomed to go. Though if we channel this energy wisely, we can get the cosmic help we need to leave the past where it belongs and step boldly into the future. By mid-afternoon, the Moon shifts into creative and passionate Leo, setting the stage for tomorrow's eclipse. Under a Leo Moon we're called to show up for ourselves with authenticity, courage, and flair. When the Leo Moon teams up with Mars in freedom-loving Sagittarius later in the evening, it will be hard to deny the fire burning in our hearts. This Moon-Mars match-up pushes us to follow our hearts and not look back.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You may need to assert your independence or your own way of thinking when it comes to beliefs or norms that you've inherited from family. Even though you're a risk-taker, you can still get tripped up by sticking to what feels safe. It's time to remove your self-imposed limitations. Go and be free.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You might easily feel anxious and off-kilter today, which could be the result of absorbing someone else's funky energy or spreading yourself too thin. Either way, your job will be to work on reconnecting to your center. You can start by recognizing you don't have to carry everything on your shoulders. Let go.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Don't worry yourself with trying to fit in or follow someone else's rules or way of thinking. You'll find your tribe. You just have to be willing to let the dead weight go. Instead, look towards joining forces with people that fuel you and encourage you to do things your own way. You were born to be an original.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Change is afoot, especially where your career and goals are concerned, which means the only person you should care about making happy right now is you. At the same time, you're being called to step outside of your comfort zone to get where you want to be so don't be afraid to do so. You deserve more.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
It's time for a bit of house cleaning today, namely when it comes to feelings and beliefs that you still hold that are no longer serving your well-being or growth. Part of this work means being more mindful of the information you take in on a regular basis. Guard your mental space. You're due for a reboot.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
A friend could do something that surprises you, leaving you wondering if there's still a place for this person in your life. If this isn't their first infraction, you may want to consider keeping this person at a distance. Overall, it's time to tend to what your heart needs so you can heal. Honor your boundaries.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You may find yourself ready to end a significant relationship or may be feeling like a committed relationship doesn't fit into your current goals right now. Try not to second-guess yourself, as your attention is being called elsewhere. It's time to focus on finding your groove and dancing to your own beat.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Is it time for you to go in a new direction when it comes to your job? If there's one thing that's for certain, you can't continue on the way you are. Something needs to change, especially if you don't feel a sense of fulfillment. A new opportunity is on the horizon but you'll miss it if you keep looking backwards.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
A romantic relationship could have you in the feels today, as it seems the person you're into may not be able to offer you the intimacy and depth you're craving. Though there's no need to feel too bad about letting this person go. You don't need the extra baggage where you're going. Relish your freedom.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You and your partner or someone close to you may not be on the same page today, which could make the moment ripe for an argument or misunderstanding. However, this could be the push you need to address the deeper issue at hand. It's time to be proactive about your healing.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Your brain might be on an overload today, especially if you have lots on your plate. Instead of letting your work (and your thoughts) get the best of you, slow down and take your time. Clear your head and be mindful of negative thinking. A talk with your friends or your partner could refuel you.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
It's time to be more protective of how you spend your time and energy with certain people in your life; you don't owe anyone a thing. On another note, it's time to be a bit more daring when it comes to your professional goals. There's something brewing in you that you need to take a risk on. Live your purpose.
