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 20, 2017.
It's a busy, busy day today as the Moon in fleet-footed Gemini makes the rounds. The first stop is a meeting with Venus in Gemini, which is the perfect combination for commerce, creative endeavors, and connecting with others, especially when it comes to romance. Though the big news of the day happens when Mars, the planet of action and passion, finally leaves emotional Cancer for fiery and fierce Leo. With Mars in Leo, we'll find that we're driven to stand out from the crowd and follow our creative instincts. Things briefly slow down by the late afternoon when the Gemini Moon opposes serious Saturn in Sagittarius. While this kind of meeting tends to dampen the more fun-loving nature of Gemini, we can still use this Moon-Saturn combination to work on fine tuning or revising plans, projects, and goals.
"As the evening comes to an end, things may get a little bumpy as the Cancer Sun squares off with Uranus in Aries."
By the evening, the Moon meets up with Mercury in Leo, which can help us to best say how we feel and connect with others on a heartfelt level. Though as the evening comes to an end, things may get a little bumpy as the Cancer Sun squares off with Uranus in Aries. While it will be important to keep our impulses in check, this combination can be helpful for breaking free from anything that's grown old and stagnant.
