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 July 19, 2017.
The Moon moves into curious Gemini early this morning, putting us in the mood to learn something new and connect with others. If we have calls or emails to catch up on, today's the perfect day to do so. Meanwhile, we shouldn't find it too hard to come up with fresh ideas either, especially as Mercury in creative Leo meets up with Saturn in visionary Sagittarius, helping us to build on those ideas and make them something real. This Mercury-Saturn combination can be helpful for dealing with the day to day, practical stuff as well. Plus, if we need to have a serious talk or discussion, there's no time like the present.
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 at 5 p.m. EST for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You might find your brain going a mile a minute today, but you probably won't mind too much as whatever ideas you come up with could be something that you can capitalize on later. It's possible that a conversation or connection with someone could also be inspiring so keep your eyes and ears open.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
The focus is on your short- and long-term security today which could have you mulling over your budget. If you've been thinking about making a big investment like purchasing a car, buying a home, or starting a retirement fund, you might like what you hear today. Even life insurance can make a difference.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
The attention is on you and your needs today, which means if you have to tell someone how you feel about something, today is a good day to communicate those feelings as your voice won't go unheard. At the same time, if you need to negotiate a contract, partnership, or business agreement — it should go well.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Today's one of those keep-your-head-down-and-stay-busy kind of days, especially where your work and finances are concerned. If you've been job hunting, you could find a couple promising leads. Meanwhile, when it comes to your spending, you may want to work on cutting back what you don't need.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You often draw people to you because of your ability to stand out and shine like no other. However, you sometimes dull that shine by being too focused on what others think about you. Today is a reminder that you don't need to perform. All you need to be is yourself whether others like it or not.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
The spotlight is on you and your career today as you may find yourself craving recognition for your hard work. While there's a chance that you'll get it, what will you do if you don't? Here's where it's important to remember the value of living from the inside out as opposed to the other way around. Affirm yourself.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You've got your eyes on the skies today, as you look toward your next big thing. As such, this is a great day for planning and figuring out what you'll need to make your hopes and wishes come true. Talking to others that have the experience you're looking for can help. Being open to learning works too.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Your mind is on your money today, which means this would be the perfect time to build a strategy on how you can pay off your debts faster. At the same time, some self-promotion goes a long way, as you could land a new client or career opportunity that could offer long-term stability. Negotiate a raise.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
It's all about partnerships today as you're encouraged to link up with those that can provide you with the support and encouragement you need to go after the things you're passionate about. Meanwhile, you may be called to play a supportive role in someone else's life. Look out for those you love.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Today's a self-care kind of day as you may find yourself a bit in your feelings. While this isn't a bad thing, the goal here is that you don't try to ignore what you're feeling or hold on to it for too long. Taking care of yourself mentally and emotionally is important. Don't allow yourself to run on empty.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Are you in the mood for love? You should be, as there's a strong chance that you could connect with someone worthwhile today. Though couples win too, when they carve out some quality time to spend together. When it comes to your creative talent, you also shine today. Your genius is always appreciated.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
Your personal fulfillment is at the forefront today, especially when it comes to your work, habits, and routines. If you've been finding yourself just going through the motions, then it's time to pull back and look to where you can insert more curiosity and creativity into your everyday life. Follow your heart.
