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. 8, 2018.
It should feel like we're smooth sailing for much of the day, with the Moon in beauty- and people-loving Libra. Adding to the vibe, are a few key meetings between multiple planets in Capricorn and Scorpio, which includes a match up between Venus in Capricorn and Jupiter in Scorpio at midday. This kind of cosmic combination can be good for financial-related matters and anything that requires equal parts passion and commitment, especially as go-getter Mars in Scorpio joins forces with powerful Pluto in Capricorn in the late afternoon.
Though things start to get a bit bumpy towards the end of the day as the Libra Moon squares off with each of the three planets in Capricorn, which may dampen the mood or bring up buried feelings. While Libra prefers to see the beauty in everything, Capricorn chooses to see the reality, which may not be as palatable as Libra would like. However, both signs have the ability to approach a situation with logic and objectivity in order to solve a problem. The best way to handle this planetary square off is by taking the same approach when it comes moving past our own challenges, especially when it comes to our relationships.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
As ambitious as you're feeling right now, you may need to be careful of allowing yourself to get sidetracked by a relationship that doesn't align with/ support your goals, as you can't afford the distraction. On the flip side, don't forget that person that's been on your team since day one. Make quality time.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
When it comes to fulfilling a vision or dream, you can get the most traction by collaborating with or getting support from others. Though it can't be just anyone. You need people on your team that can guide you and help push you to new heights. Doing everything yourself could have you spinning in circles.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You could manifest a bonus, raise, or new gig today as a result of your hard work and dedication. Though if you do receive a job offer, be mindful of trading your happiness for a pay check right now. Something better is on the way. Meanwhile, in love, do you want substance or do you want fluff?
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Things could be getting super serious between you and someone you've been seeing. Though you might be feeling the urge to pump the brakes. While there's nothing wrong in wanting to take things slow, make sure it's not an inability to let go of the past that's getting in the way. Have courage.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You should find yourself feeling extra motivated today when it comes to getting your life in order. Perhaps this might be the day you decide to start a fitness routine or organize your closets and de-clutter your space. Either way, take it bit by bit.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You might find your creative inspiration at a high today, which could have you ready to churn out your latest masterpiece. Though before you jump in, you may need to ask yourself if you're doing it for the love or for validation. Ultimately, know you are the one that gets to say how much you're worth.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
If you've been thinking about moving or relocating, today could be a good time to start your search, as you could uncover a promising option. On a similar note, this could also be a good time to redecorate your living space. Meanwhile, you might feel unappreciated by family. Honor your self-worth.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You might be feeling more magnetic than usual, which means that people will be hanging on to your every word and interested in your ideas. As such, it could lead you to new opportunities. Though it might be a good idea to be extra picky about what you take on. Don't spread yourself thin.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Something you're working on behind the scenes is about to pay off, as long as you believe in what you're doing. Similarly, you could manifest a financial opportunity that could materialize for you in the nick of time. Either way, try not to waste time comparing yourself to others. Keep your head low and build.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Your friendships and alliances are what help to get you by today, especially where your hopes and plans for the future are concerned. It's time that you take a shot on something that you've been wanting to do. Your friends will be on hand with encouragement. Don't waste time second guessing yourself.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You could score a major opportunity today or have your work publicly acknowledged by a VIP. This opportunity could come by way of someone that's been talking you up behind the scenes, so keep up the good work. Meanwhile, just because something is ideal doesn't mean it's for you.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
It's time for you to take some risks and shoot for the moon when it comes to getting something you've been wishing for. What are you willing to throw yourself into head on? The people in your network can assist you with making your dream come true. Though make sure they're on your level or above.
