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 12, 2017.
Today should be a fun, energizing day with the Moon still in upbeat Sagittarius, which kicks off the day with a meetup with adventurous Venus in Aries. Shortly afterward, Mars in curious Gemini and Jupiter in sociable Libra meet up too. Under these cosmic combos we should find ourselves raring to go, on the move, and gathering new friends and experiences along the way. However, there is one glitch to watch out for, which comes late in the afternoon when the Sagittarius Moon squares off with dreamy Neptune in Pisces. This Moon-Neptune aspect could have us feeling hypersensitive or not able to see things as clearly as we should. The best way to handle this aspect is to put it to creative or innovative use. About an hour later, the Moon meets up with Jupiter as well, which should have us in warm, generous mood.
"We could find ourselves feeling a bit argumentative, moody, and opinionated."
Though things could get a little interesting by the end of the day, as the Sagittarius Moon makes an opposition to Mars in Gemini. With these two together we could find ourselves feeling a bit argumentative, moody, and opinionated. The best way to channel this energy is by using it to stand up for ourselves or others. If we're passionate about getting something accomplished, this Moon-Mars match-up can also be helpful.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Something between you and a friend or you and a partner could come bubbling up to the light, which may not have you approaching the situation as clearly as you should. The important thing is to trust facts over feelings right now for a solution. On another note, it's time for a new adventure.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Your focus is still on your money and resources as you're reminded not to spread yourself too thin. Meanwhile, a new job opportunity could be on the horizon, especially if the current one doesn't feel as fulfilling anymore. It's time to think about your financial future in terms of happiness and wealth.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Those that are genuinely in your corner are there because they genuinely want to be not because of what you can do for them or the ideals they want you to live up to. It's time to take stock and be appreciative of those people rather try to force yourself to fit in where you don't. Don't dim your light.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
It's time to find a healthy way to release the anxiety, anger, or resentment that may be holding you back right now. Working with a counselor, therapist, or coach could help you get grounded and emotionally centered. Exercise could also provide a healthy outlet as well. It's time to shift your perception.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Love could be in the air today, which means today is not the day for sticking to a routine or sitting at home on the couch. Invite yourself to do something different in a different place, and you could invite in romance. Ultimately, today works best when you get you let our your curiosity and playfulness.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Your focus is on your stability and emotional well-being today which means that you might have to kick it up a notch when it comes to finding work that will really sustain you or finding a healthy balance between how much time you devote to your career and private life. Honor your deeper needs.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Someone could be asking something of you today that may not exactly be on the up and up, or you may not have all the details needed to make a sound decision. Though the facts won't be too hard to miss today, as all you need to do is pay closer attention. Don't be afraid to speak up if you need to.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
If someone is offering you something that just sounds too good to be true (especially where money or a job opportunity is concerned), it just might be. The best way to avoid this is by trusting that keen intuition of yours and making sure you know what your ideas, value, and passion are worth.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You could be feeling conflicted between giving in to what others want and needing to do your own thing today, which could bring up an old issue from the past. However, the best way to address this is by looking for the balance or a win-win solution in your relationships. Sometimes you need to compromise.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You may be feeling a bit stop and go today and that's because there's a big part of you that needs to dial it down and chill. While there may be a ton of things for you to do today, it's important that you don't go into a system overload. Even if you can't take the day off, at least get in a nap.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Romance is exciting today when you make room in your schedule for a little fun. If you're single and looking, this would be a good time to visit somewhere new where you can learn and interact with others or join friends for an after work event. Either way, when you're turned on, the world turns on with you.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You could be feeling like you're not where you should be when it comes to your career or ambitions but that could just be that you're looking at yourself through someone else's lens. Instead of allowing external trappings to weigh you down, delve inward and remind yourself of how resourceful you are.
