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 17, 2017.
It should be a pretty busy and high energy day as the Moon continues her trek through electric and unconventional Aquarius; putting us in the mood for one-of-a-kind experiences, innovative ideas, and getting to know new and interesting people. When the free-spirited Aquarius Moon joins forces with independent, yet passionate Venus in Aries by the afternoon; we should expect surprising developments when it comes to love and money. For some of us, this combination could spark a chance encounter, an instant attraction, or the opportunity to become a trailblazer. Later in the day, the Moon meets up with friendly Jupiter in Libra which should have us feeling upbeat, social, and ready to explore new horizons.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.
