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 Nov. 1, 2017.
The Moon leaves the emotional depths of Pisces for the fiery and passionate terrain of Aries early this morning; putting us in the mood for anything that requires courage and a sense of adventure. Under an Aries Moon we're more likely to be impulsive and argumentative, which means we'll have to be mindful of making hotheaded decisions. Exercising caution will be especially important come this afternoon, when the Moon opposes Mars in Libra. With a Moon-Mars combination like this, it can be all too easy to let others press our buttons. The best way to channel this energy is towards anything that may require determination, fearlessness, or the need to start fresh.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You and someone close to you could be at each other's throats today, if you're not careful. You're feeling extra sensitive and they may not be as understanding as you need them to be. You may have to lead by example to avoid a blowup. On another note, look to those that happily light your fire.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
It may be hard to tell whether you're coming or going today, as one half of you wants to catch up on beauty sleep while the other half of you attempts to bring your list of things to do down to zero. You're going to have to find some balance if you're going to make it through the day. Some things can wait.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You could be feeling some tension between what a friend needs versus what you want. Though before you go bending over backwards for anyone, see if there's a way that you can meet in the middle. Overall, look to friendships that fuel and inspire you. Spend less time with those that drain you of your energy.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Just when you thought you had a break, it's time to get back into the grind. As such, you could find yourself being pulled between demands at work and a home or family related matter. Take a step back and regroup if you need to and try not to operate from a reactive place. Dig down and find your strength.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You've got a lot of strong opinions but you might want to reconsider sharing them today as you could come across a bit heavy handed. That's not to say that you shouldn't speak your truth but "less is more" might be the way to go for now. Sometimes it's what isn't said that makes the most impact.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Your finances continue to be at the forefront as an unexpected expense could have you feeling out of sorts. This might be the push you need to get a better handle on your cash. Someone close could bail you out. On another note, if someone is putting too many demands on you, it's time to draw boundaries.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You could be feeling pulled between your partner's needs (or the needs of another) and your own today, which could have you feeling more combative than usual. If possible, try to insert a little tenderness into the situation to turn it around. Meanwhile, watch out for those that may be too needy.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You may find yourself dealing with a lot of pent up energy today, which could have you ready pop if you're not careful. As such, it may be helpful to find some healthy ways that you can blow off steam, preferably anything that makes you sweat. You can treat yourself to something nice afterwards.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You may be in the mood to do your own thing, but a friend could try to throw a wrench in your plans. If so, you might need to take a step back and ask yourself if this friend is really a friend. Healthy competition is good. Having someone that wants to one-up or sabotage you is not. Act on an inspiration.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You may be feeling like you're playing tug-of-war today between your feelings (or a family related issue) and your goals and ambitions. If you're feeling tender, don't be afraid to take a time out as needed and lean on someone close. You need to clear your head so you can operate from a level place.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Your body may be here but your mind may be a million miles away today, which could mean that you and your brain are thirsting for something new. In what ways can you break up the monotony of your day? Push yourself to see the world around you in a new light. If all else fails, have some fun.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
When it comes to your worth, in love and career, there's no sense in wasting your time and energy on people or situations that leave you feeling undervalued and underappreciated. This is a theme for you today. As such, it's time to take your power back. It may be uncomfortable but it's necessary.
