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. 4, 2018
Though much of the US is buried in snow, there's some fiery planetary action happening in the cosmos today which could put us on a hot streak, as the Moon continues to move through confident Leo. By mid-afternoon the Moon meets up with Mercury in visionary Sagittarius, followed by an evening meeting with innovative Uranus in Aries. Under this cosmic trio, we should be feeling inspired to take a new approach to solving an old problem or bringing an idea to life. Either way, we can look forward to a breakthrough of sorts as today calls for outside of the box thinking and a whole lot of fiery passion to fuel it. Though with the Moon's square off with Jupiter in Scorpio still lingering, we may just want to look a little before we leap.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You should be feeling pretty inspired today, which can be helpful for bringing an idea or plan that you've been sitting on to life. Meanwhile, there could be some sparks flying between you and a special someone. Overall, if you've been waiting for a reset, today could be your lucky day. Blaze the trail.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
While things may have started off a bit bumpy between you and your mate today, the conflict could be a catalyst for the two of you to have an emotionally honest conversation about the situation. As long as you're both willing to hear each other out, you could have a breakthrough.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Your partner or someone close to you could be a good sounding board for you when it comes to an idea or project that you're working to get off the ground. Meanwhile, if you're feeling overwhelmed with everything that's on your plate, now would be a good time to ask the people around you for support.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
If you've been job hunting, you could manifest a promising job offer or uncover a job lead worth following. On a similar note, if you're happy where you are, your innovative thinking could bring you some recognition from the higher ups. Either way, it's time to take a few risks and go after the gold.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
That creative project that's been swirling around in your head won't get the shine it deserves unless you're willing to give it the time and attention it needs. Make today your day to get started. On a different note, you could be feeling some heat today with someone you least expect.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Do you really need to do all of that today? Really? You might feel a lot better if you give yourself some time to chill. While you're recharging, it might be a good time to think about challenging or letting go of an old story that you've been telling yourself. Focus on re-writing your narrative.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
When it comes to fulfilling your hopes and wishes, look to ways you can connect with people that are already doing what you want to do or that may be on their way. The company you keep can be instrumental in helping you to flesh out your vision. On that note, be wary of the naysayers.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
The work you've been putting in is starting to pay off, which means that you could manifest an impressive opportunity. Overall, you're due for some changes when it comes to your career. It's time for some fresh energy and a fresh approach. What are you willing to take a risk on? Go and do it.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
While things may not feel super exciting right now, it doesn't mean you're not making progress. It just means you have to think things through a bit more than you might usually do. It's OK because this is how you apply the wisdom you've obtained. Don't second-guess yourself. You know what you know.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
If you allow yourself to slow down long enough today, you might have a realization that helps you to see something in a different light or provide you with the hope you need to press on. Don't ignore your instincts. Meanwhile, a journal writing session could be cathartic.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
If you need to have a heart-to-heart with a friend or someone close to you, today could be a good time to do so knowing that what you have to say will be heard. At the same time, someone in your camp could offer you some words of advice that could provide you with the inspiration you need. Listen.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
A talk or presentation that you give could go well today, while an idea or pitch that you've made could get green-lighted. Either way, when it comes to your thoughts and ideas, the world is ready to hear what you have to say. How will you show up for the spotlight? Bring your A-game and your wit.
