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 9, 2017.
The Moon moves into sexy and brooding Scorpio early this morning, which should have us in the mood for seduction, intimacy, intensity, and secrets. As we gear up for tomorrow's Full Moon in Scorpio, we may find that we're feeling all the feelings we possibly can right now times a hundred. Though this might not necessarily be a bad thing, as Scorpio Moons help us to face what makes us uncomfortable so we can get rid of it, heal it, or draw power from it. By the afternoon, the Scorpio Moon brushes up against Venus in Aries, which could have us craving something deeper when it comes to relationships and money and simultaneously pushing it away at the same time. That's why the meetup between the Sun in Taurus and transformative Pluto in Capricorn later in the afternoon can help us to find the strength and resolve we need to make improved, lasting changes in our lives.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
There's no denying how irresistible you are right now in the eyes of others, which could have you wondering whether you want the extra attention or not. Best to use it to your advantage (namely when it comes to your career and money) to help you win over those that can offer you an opportunity.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You may feel like you've got the eye of the tiger today, which means that whatever you set out to achieve probably won't take much effort, especially if you've got someone on your team working alongside you. Ultimately, you're being pushed to take life by the reins and plunge yourself forward.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
It's time to think about how fulfilled you feel when it comes to what you do for a living. Think of today as your moment to reclaim your personal power when it comes to working a soul sucking job or your compensation for a job. It's time to purge what no longer works, like a fear of succeeding.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
The spotlight is on your relationships today as it's your friends or the person closest to you that can help you accomplish the most. Give yourself permission to allow others to support you. And while you have everyone's attention, make sure you're using it for something worthwhile.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You could reach a major milestone in your career today as people are taking notice of you and your work. Bring your A game to the job and you could manifest a new opportunity before you know it. Meanwhile, don't let a fear of moving forward get in the way of you taking your place on the throne.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
When everything else is stripped away, who are you at your core? This could be a question that comes up for you today as you're pushed to express your most authentic self. No use in trying to fit in with others, when it's all about forging your own special way. Lead from the heart to win.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You could find the inner strength you need today to clear an emotional blockage or to release an old fear. The important thing to remember here is how powerful you really are. On a financial note, you could get the resources you need to clear up a debt or improve your sense of stability.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Your powers of persuasion are strong today which means you could talk yourself in (and out of) just about anything. Use this power to draw attention to something important to you or to sell others on an idea that you have. Overall, pay attention to your needs. Give your feelings a voice.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
One thing that's always important to remember is how much say you have over what you do, especially when it comes to what you do on a daily or hourly basis. As such, you could make the choice to do something better or ask for money to do it based on your worth. Go with your intuition.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Folks may need to be put on notice today because when it comes to showing off your best, you're nothing to play with. You have the right amount of charm, confidence, and charisma to win people over, especially when it comes to your creative and romantic efforts. Go ahead and wow the crowd.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Don't be surprised if you're feeling a bit withdrawn today, as it could be a quite cathartic one for you. You could find the strength or courage you need to get past a fear or something that happened in your past. Overall, today is about reconnecting to your center. You've come a long way.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
When it comes to your hopes and wishes, you have the power to manifest the resources and support you need to begin making them come true. Look to networking or collaborating with others to help you in creating opportunities for yourself. Take plans step by step, but don't lose your vision.
