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 May 11, 2017.
The Moon leaves the deep and seductive waters of Scorpio this afternoon for bright and sunny Sagittarius, which should put us in the mood for things that broaden our minds and take us to new places. By mid-afternoon, there may be a few hiccups as Mars in communicative Gemini squares off with dreamy Neptune in Pisces. With this kind of cosmic combination we may have trouble staying focused, staying awake, or staying on the same page when it comes to dealing with others. Luckily, Mercury in Aries meets up with serious Saturn in Sagittarius later in the day, which can help us to get back to work and back on track.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Be mindful of what you share with others today as you don't need people knowing more than they should right now. Meanwhile someone you know may not be telling you all they should. Show you're a cut above the rest by sticking to your guns and your integrity. Trust your own judgement.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You may not be seeing eye-to-eye today with someone you work closely with or it could feel like someone is trying to undermine you.

Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
While you may love to help others, make sure that you're not taking on too much on to your own plate as you need to focus more on yourself right now than anything. At the same time, if you need help, don't be afraid to ask for it. When it comes to a vision you want to see through, take small steps.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
When it comes to love and intimacy, it's possible that you may be trying to force something that's just not meant to be, namely because this person (while intriguing) just isn't right for you. On another note, when it comes to your work and creative energy, make sure you demand what you're worth.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You and your partner or someone you live with may not be on the same page today which could be the cause of your frustration. While you may want to quickly solve the issue and move on, it may be best if you walked away from the situation temporarily on focused on something else.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You could receive some information that throws you off today or you might feel very unproductive when it comes to work. If you find yourself feeling unsettled by any of this, take a moment to breathe and re-center yourself. When it comes to moving forward, your first instinct is the best.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
A new love interest may be cute, charming, and fun but when it comes to your values and standards, is this person a match. Before you get too carried away, it might be best to allow your rational side to take over today and look at the situation objectively. Don't worry though, there's plenty fish in the sea.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
Some old emotions or resentments could come bubbling up to the surface today which could have you second guessing yourself and feeling like you're not doing as much as you should. However, it's important that you be gentle with yourself and take things one step at a time. You are powerful.
