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 2, 2017.
The energy for the day should be much lighter than yesterday as the Moon shifts into playful Leo. With the Moon in this warm and lavish sign, we should find ourselves in the mood for big displays of generosity, romance, style, and appreciation. This feeling will most likely be strongest when the Moon meets up with Venus in passionate Aries early this morning. By the afternoon, the Leo Moon meets up with Mars in Gemini, which should speed the pace up quickly. With the Moon and Mars together, there will be a big emphasis on how we feel, though we'll have to be mindful of letting our egos get in the way. By the late evening, the Moon squares off with the Sun in Taurus, which could have us feeling conflicted between what we need and what we want.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Your creative energy should be exploding today which means it's the perfect time to get started on that story, book, fashion event, photo shoot, etc. as the ideas that come through now will be genius. Though when it comes to monetizing your art or your creativity, make sure you know your worth.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Your stability and security are on your mind today, which could have you looking for a new home or looking for ways to better save and earn money. As a result, your emotions could be running high now, but it's important to remember you don't always have to be the stoic one. Honor your feelings.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Don't be surprised if you find yourself feeling extra inspired today as the cosmos are making sure you're fired up enough to follow through on your big ideas. If you have something you'd like to share or communicate with others, your words will be like honey. Don't let your fears hold you back.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
When it comes to your career, treasure could await you today when you allow yourself to trust your gut and create space for yourself to actually go after your dreams. While what you want may not necessarily happen overnight, it doesn't mean that it's not possible. You have to believe it's possible though.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Are you too worried about what others may think of you or what others think you should be doing with your life? If the answer is yes, it's time to take a step back and realize that praise and affirmation that you crave doesn't mean anything if you can't give it to yourself first. Be your own biggest fan.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Don't worry about pushing yourself too hard today as you'll need to conserve your energy. You stand at the precipice of making a major breakthrough when it comes to your career, though you'll have to be intentional about the moves you make now. Your dreams come true by taking them one step at a time.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Today could offer you a romantic treat of sorts, whether you're single or happily attached, as love works best when you open yourself up to new people and experiences. On another note, you could be too worried about the future today, which could be stressful. Take a breather and have a little faith.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
The focus is on your career as you may receive praise or recognition of sorts for a job well done. However, if you're at a job where you feel undervalued, today could inspire you to begin looking elsewhere for a new position. Remember, a job is contract — it should be beneficial for both parties.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You may be feeling like you've gotten a little dull around the edges lately, which means your mission is to get out and remember what it's like to have fun. Even if it's just for a few hours, the fresh air will get your creative juices going. Though when it comes to creative planning, keep the execution simple.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You could find yourself in your feelings today, though more than likely whatever's troubling you is something stemming from the past. Though whatever comes up to the surface now is there so you can acknowledge it, heal, and let it go. Don't let old wounds and resentments steal your joy.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Romance is in the air today which could have you meeting someone new if you're single and looking for love. Meanwhile attached Aquarians could rekindle some of the spark with a thoughtful message or a little spontaneity. Either way, don't let a fear of vulnerability cut you off from intimacy.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
It's time for you to keep some promises to yourself, whether that means leaving a toxic job behind, doing more to take care of your body, or being more intentional on how you spend your time and energy. When it comes to getting past stress and anxiety, it may be time to work with a therapist.
