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. 6, 2017.
After an intense “argument” between the Aries Moon and Jupiter (the principle of expansion) in Libra just after midnight, which may make for a rather restless night, the vibe begins to calm down considerably when the Moon (feelings) in Aries stops by for a friendly chat with Saturn (reality) in Sagittarius shortly afterwards. If the Moon-Jupiter mashup gives us restless feeling, then the Moon combined with Saturn can show us how we can apply that restless energy to something worthwhile. By the afternoon, the Moon meets up with Mercury (communication) in high-minded Sagittarius (which is still retrograde), which can help show us where we may need to let go out outdated beliefs or thinking in order to move forward. Later in the afternoon, the Moon shifts into Taurus which should put us in the mood for work, planning, and a hearty meal afterwards. In the evening, the Moon meets up with laid-back Venus in Pisces, which should bring the night to a pleasant close.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.
And remember to tune into Bustle's weekly horoscopes video live on Facebook every other Monday (beginning on Jan. 9) at 4 p.m. ET for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Money takes the spotlight today, specifically how you earn it and how you burn it. If you've been looking for work, now would be a good time to begin putting applications out while mapping out your plans for the first quarter. In terms of savings, this could also be a good time to work on your financial plan, as it’s a good way to let the universe know you mean business.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
It’s all about you today, as you’re called to bring your attention back to yourself. Where would you like to go? Who would you like to meet when you’re there? Today could be a reminder that when it comes to getting what you want, you’re the master at manifesting. If you need help remembering this, look to the people in your life who love you no matter what.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Perhaps one of the simplest yet most radical thoughts is knowing that no matter how hard you want to, you can’t control what someone else does. This message may come to you as a reminder today, as there may be someone in your life that isn’t playing by the rules that you set forth. Know that they have a choice, as do you – use it.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
When it comes to your hopes, wishes, and dreams, it may be time for you to step out of your cozy and comfortable shell to get what you want. You have some of the sharpest intuition around, so why don’t you trust yourself more? Stop playing small and take your goals seriously. If you think you could use some help getting there, ask for it.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Your career comes into the spotlight as the opportunity to take on a major contract or commission could be presented to you. If an opportunity doesn’t come up around this time, you may want to evaluate if you’re getting what you deserve when it comes to your skills and talents. If you are feeling undervalued, this is your time to do something about it.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
A past issue with a family member or partner may come rearing its head again. Before things get carried away, though, you can use this time to voice how you really feel instead of allowing someone to guilt trip or manipulate you. By doing so, you give yourself freedom from messy entanglements and the space to be who you are without any apology.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You may have a feeling of déjà vu as an old discussion or topic could come up between you and your partner or someone close to you, especially if it concerns money. Not to worry, though; this is good time to discuss your shared budget and financial goals. If debt has been an issue, you two could come up with a solution on how best to manage it.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Love and partnership take the spotlight for you today; if you're single, you could meet someone with long term potential, while if you're a coupled Scorpio, you may find yourself rekindling the spark you have with your beloved. Professionally, this is a good time for you to collaborate with others; they may be able to help you take your career and your creativity to the next level.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
While you’ve been busy working on being a better version of yourself, have you been holding yourself too far back? While making rash decisions or taking on more than you can handle isn’t advised right now, that doesn’t mean you should stop yourself cold. Think about what you want to accomplish and begin executing the plans to get you there.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Romance and creative beginnings could be in the works for you if you’re willing to release the past. Know that whatever beliefs or fears that you may have held on to up until now can only get you so far. This is a time for you to begin cleaning house (literally and figuratively) so you can create space for the new things coming your way.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You may be focused on your future today, which may mean that you need to review some of your current goals to see if they still align with what you want to do. Reconnecting with old friends or associates could help you to uncover new opportunities or improve what you already have in place. Whatever takes off now can help you strengthen your foundation.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
When it comes to getting what you want in your career, you may need to take a few steps back an rethink your current strategy. It could be that you need to work the kinks out of a project or plan that you’d like to launch in the future. Play close attention to what your heart wants the most now, as that desire will lead you in the right direction.
