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 4, 2017.
Between the Fourth of July celebrations taking place across the U.S. to and the Moon still in passionate Scorpio, there should be enough fireworks to go around today. Though that may not necessarily be a bad thing as Scorpio's job is to get our blood pumping about what we care about most. However, with a meetup between the Moon and Mars in Cancer setting the tone to the day, we'll have to make sure we don't let our passions spill overboard. Still, this kind of cosmic combo can be good for anything requiring determination and resilience. By the late evening, the vibe should lighten up a bit a Venus, the planet of money and relationships, moves into social Gemini. With Venus here, we'll find that we'll enjoy ourselves most by getting friendly, chatty, and leaving ourselves open to learning something new.
Time spent with those we treasure or love deeply could have a therapeutic effect.
Though we may need to watch what we say and try to keep the conversation light, as the square-off between emo Mercury in Cancer and rebellious Uranus in Aries could have us rubbing people the wrong way if we're not thinking before speaking. At the same time, this kind of cosmic influence can be good for shedding an old way of thinking, while the meeting between the Scorpio Moon and Mercury in Cancer, about an hour later, will be helpful for speaking from the heart, being heard with compassion, and tuning in to our intuition. However, we'll still need to watch out for hypersensitivity. The Scorpio Moon ends the night meeting with healing Chiron in Pisces. Time spent with those we treasure or love deeply could have a therapeutic effect.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You may find yourself pretty riled up today especially when it comes to a family-related matter or something that may have happened in the past, which could have you feeling a bit impulsive. However, it's important that you focus on letting whatever happened go. Talking or writing could be therapeutic.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Right now it's all about surrounding yourself with and collaborating with those that you can genuinely be yourself around. As you need to be in the company of like minds to inspire and fuel your ideas. Be wary of the naysayers and focus on those that may already be where you want to be as well.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Your current obligations or finances may be getting in the way of something you're planning or looking forward to, however, with a little patience and attention to detail, there's a chance you could find a suitable solution. Meanwhile, it's time to start paying attention to your physical well-being.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
It's time to worry less about what others may think or expect of you and start focusing more on what matters to you. It's OK to put you and your feeling first for a change. At the same time, be mindful of what you say in public as you don't want to damage your reputation. Take a time out and relax.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Could it be time for you to let go of an idea, feeling, or belief that's no longer working for you? While you prefer to keep things light and sunny, you may need to work on letting some of your darker feelings go. Meanwhile, it's time to stop scattering yourself into one too many directions. Get centered.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You may find yourself having a bone to pick with a friend or someone you know which could trigger an argument or a misunderstanding. Though while this may be uncomfortable, this may be an opportunity for the two of you to have an honest conversation about the situation. Heal the relationship.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
A business partnership may need to come to an end if you're going to truly flourish in your career. Right now you need to be aligning and connecting yourself with those that can plug you into fresh opportunities. Overall, it's time to put some gusto behind your vision. Go where you are inspired.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You may find yourself feeling extremely opinionated today, and while there's not anything necessarily wrong with speaking on what you believe in, you may want to make sure that you keep your thoughts and feelings out of the workplace today as your co-workers won't be on the same page.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You may need to trust your intuition when it comes to someone you're dating or may be considering dating. As fun or engaging as this person may be, there's a chance that they can't offer you the emotional depth, intelligence, or intimacy you need now. It's OK though, there's plenty more fish in the sea.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You and your partner or someone you may be close to (perhaps a family member), may not be on the same page today which could be a cause for concern. Though instead of stewing on this all on your own, perhaps venting to a friend or a neutral party may help shed light on the situation.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You may receive some unexpected news or have an a-ha moment today when it comes to your job that may motivate you to take your career in a different direction or make serious changes. Though whatever you choose to pursue in your professional life, let your heart and creative energy guide you.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You're out to have fun today, though you'll have to be careful that the kind of fun you get into doesn't break the bank. You'll need to get a little creative when it comes to figuring out what to do. Entertaining guests/friends at home could be your best bet and much easier on your pockets.
