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 June 21, 2017.
It's officially Cancer season here on the East Coast, which means that it's also the Summer Solstice. With Cancer season marking the beginning of summer, we're reminded to engage in things that make us feel good, like spending time with close family and friends or spending time near the water. With the Moon still in calm and easy Taurus for most of the day, we should expect the day to be a fairly laid back one. With the New Moon in Cancer (June 23) approaching, today's the perfect time to wrap up unfinished business and tie up loose ends. Mercury, the planet of communication, leaves analytical Gemini for the sensitive realm of Cancer today which means thoughts and words will be charged with more emotion than usual.
Mercury syncs up with the Sun in Cancer which can be good for problem solving or speaking our minds.
Though Mercury in Cancer can be helpful when it comes to listening to our intuition. By mid-morning, Mercury syncs up with the Sun in Cancer which can be good for problem solving or speaking our minds (gently, please!). By the evening, the Moon shifts into curious Gemini, which make for a busy, chatty time.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
It's time to dial things down a bit and focus on your more tender side. Home and family could provide you the support you need to calm down and get centered. Now's not the time for pushing yourself too hard. When it comes to your thoughts, try not to dwell too hard on the past. Follow your intuiton.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
If you want your voice to be heard, you have to make sure you have something worthwhile to say. If you have a presentation, talk, meeting, media project, blog, or website to launch, mark today as a great day to do it. You have a number of options when it comes to choosing a platform, so use them.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
It's time for you to focus on your money, specifically how you earn, spend, and save it. If you've been burning a bit of a hole through your pockets, today could inspire you to sit down and create a budget so you can stay on top of your cash flow. Watch out for impulse buys and look over bank statements.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
The spotlight is on you today as a synchronous encounter or meeting could open doors for you or lead to the perfect opportunity. Now that you have the gift of gab, you can use it to speak what you want into existence. People will be hanging on to your every word now, so don't be afraid to speak up.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
I hope you don't have a lot to do today, because you're not going to feel like doing it anyway. You've reached the part of the program where it's time to focus on your emotional and spiritual nourishment, so don't be afraid to delve inward. Your instincts are keen now, trust them. Work behind the scenes.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Opportunity may come knocking today by way of someone within your network or work that you've done in the past. Either way, your reputation is growing and people are liking what they hear. Capitalize on the buzz you're getting by sharing your accomplishments and activities with those around you. Social media, a blog, or a website could help you get the word out.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You're the biggest boss that we've seen thus far when it comes to today, as VIPs and higher ups are becoming steadily impressed with the work you're doing. If you have a presentation or public appearance to make today, prepare to wow your audience. People will be watching/listening intently. Shine!
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
If you haven't been feeling the urge to take off at a moment's notice and see the world, you'll be feeling that urge today. Whether it's taking up a new area of study or actual travel, your brain is hungry for something new. Now all you have to do is feed it. A writing or publishing opportunity could happen.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
It's time to go deep; deep into your heart's desires, deep into conversation with your lover, deep into the state of your finances. Whatever you've been trying to avoid may come to the surface today, as it's time for you to face your fears and step back into your own power. Pay attention to your feelings.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Partnership and collaborations are the focus for you today as joining forces with like minds and those with skills that compliment or enhance yours, can help you to achieve new levels of success. If you have a service to sell or pitch, today could bring you a few opportunities. In love, have fun with your partner.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Today may be a fairly busy day for you as you find yourself motivated to get your life organized. Before you take on too much though, it's important that you prioritize so you don't get overwhelmed. Meanwhile, look to ways that you can take better care of your health and manage stress in order to thrive.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
Are you ready to have some fun? You should be with all of the work that you've been putting in lately. Make an impromptu date with a friend or do something that indulges your more adventurous side. Creatively, you should also be feeling inspired, which should be helpful for releasing pent up energy.
