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 January 7, 2019.
The Moon shifts into unpredictable and unconventional Aquarius in the wee hours of the morning, bringing our focus to our friendships and associations with others. Under an Aquarius Moon we might find ourselves craving time spent with friends or like-minded people or feeling more social. And because Aquarius can be the humanitarian of the zodiac, we might also find our spirits fed by giving back to others or contributing to the greater good in some way.
Near the start of the day, love planet Venus finally leaves the murky and emotional waters of Scorpio for the warmth and trailblazing fire of Sagittarius. With Venus in bountiful Sagittarius, we'll find the most success (and abundance) with our relationships and finances by honoring our truth, being open to new adventures, and thinking big. Since Sagittarius is also a fun-loving sign, cultivating joyful and pleasurable experiences will also be a must while Venus is in this fiery, happy-go-lucky place.
By the late morning, the momentum continues as the Aquarius Moon teams up with go-getter Mars in Aries. Under this cosmic combination, we get the green light to go after what we want and move past obstacles with the help of others and an innovative approach.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and be sure to check out your January 2019 horoscope.
