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 3, 2017.
It's hip-hip-hooray today as Mercury ends its retrograde in Aries, which means that tech, travel, and communications can begin getting back to normal. While there may still be some residual delays as Mercury comes out of hibernation, the pace should begin to pick up quite quickly. The Moon remains in dramatic Leo, amplifying our need for attention and flair, especially at the start of the day when the Moon meets up with Jupiter in creative Libra.
By the early evening ,the fiery Leo Moon meets up with Mercury, which could make for entertaining exchanges or heated words if we're not careful. Either way, expect folks to be showing off in some way, which may inspire us to show off too.
The creative energy in the air will be high, so we shouldn't be surprised if inspiration strikes.
When the Sun in Taurus meets up with dreamy Neptune later in the evening, the creative energy in the air will be high, so we shouldn't be surprised if inspiration strikes. The meeting between the Leo Moon and innovative Uranus in Aries towards the end of the night can help us find the courage to do something that helps us to stand out.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
If you can't be who you are authentically, then what's the point really? You may be reminded today that when all is said and done, what you really want to be known for is how true you remained to yourself. You of all people know that you don't have to ask anyone's permission to take up space.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You could experience some emotional clarity today when it comes to something you may have been agonizing over, which could be like a weight being lifted off of your shoulders. Ultimately when it comes to whatever happened in the past, you don't have to let it define who you are.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
It's time to get out and find your tribe. Sometimes it can feel lonely trying to accomplish all that you do on you're own, which is why connecting with kindred souls can make the difference in how confident you feel moving forward. Get with people on your level and avoid the naysayers.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
If the job hunt has been slow going, things should pick up today. Make sure your resume is up to date and your fingers are at the ready, as an opportunity could come across your email or path that could put you on top. Don't be afraid to sing your own praises either, the right people are listening.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
It's time for a change, Leo. While you're usually up for anything, even you can be quite stubborn when it comes to doing something different. Though deep down, you may be feeling like things have become a bit boring. Today, you're motivated to fix this problem. What new and interesting things await?
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
It's time to stop dwelling in the past. While you can't change what happened you do have some say in what happens going forward. Not that you should stuff your feelings down but it's time to address how you feel and work on letting it go. If you need help healing, get it. Take back your power.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
The support you need may be just a phone call or a few steps away today, so don't think for a moment that you have to go through anything alone. Be grateful for the good people in your life and make sure they're aware how much you appreciate them. A conversation could be enlightening.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You could receive some well-deserved praise or recognition today when it comes to your job or career that could help you with building your brand or reputation. If looking for work, the cosmos also favors you as you have just the right skill set someone wants. Don't be afraid to take a creative risk.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Your creative energy should be flowing today which means it's a good time to make good on some of those fancy ideas rolling around in your head. What you come up with now could be something that catapults you into the spotlight or gains you a few new admirers. Give in to your passion.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You could have an emotional breakthrough today, namely where a relationship with your family or a part of your past is concerned. This could be a rather cathartic experience so don't be afraid if you get a little emo. On another note, you could finally find the home or living space you've been wanting.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
If you need to have a serious conversation with your significant other today, there's no better time to do it, because they'll be more than receptive to what you have to say. On another note, if you're single and looking for romance, you could get lucky as well so get out and be your witty, interesting self.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
How good do you feel doing what you do for a living? Do you feel challenged in a positive way? Do you feel valued and properly compensated for that value? You'll be thinking about the answers to these questions today. Though if the answer is "no" to any of the above, you'll be ready for a change.
