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. 17, 2017.
The Moon may be still be in behind-the-scenes Scorpio but the meeting between Mercury in Sagittarius and Mars in Libra today will do anything but keep things behind the scenes. As such, we may want to use this cosmic combination to share important information with others, especially when it comes to speaking on behalf of those that may not be able to do so themselves. Meanwhile, if we're thirsty to learn something new, this Mercury-Mars combination can also be helpful. Later in the day, the Scorpio Moon meets up with Pluto in Capricorn turning up the intrigue and intensity, which can be useful for applying ourselves to anything that calls for focus and determination.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and be sure to check out your November 2017 monthly horoscope, too.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
When it comes to matters of the heart, know that this is a time for releasing the past so you can make way for the kind of love that you want. While it may be easy to dwell on what didn't work with an ex, the fact of the matter is that holding on to that pain or resentment isn't helping you. Tears are cleansing.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You and your partner may have to talk money today, namely when it comes to a joint account, financial obligation, or an investment that you've made together. If money has been an issue, this may be a good time to update your budget. On another note, this could be a time for discussing plans together.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
As cliche as it might sound, self-love goes a long way when it comes to attracting romantic love. This is a point that may resonate with you today, as you're called to spend a little extra time on you and your needs. Notice the kind of attention you command when you feel your best? Exactly.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You've got a lot on your plate today but you should still make some time for some fun, as it could help you to blow off steam. At the same time, if you find yourself feeling a bit angsty or anxious today, talking to someone close to you can help.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You may still be in hibernation mode today, so if you're not exactly feeling motivated to do much, don't feel too bad. Though the solitude you take today could be good for tuning into the creative energy you're feeling. It's the perfect time to channel that energy into something worthwhile.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You've got a busy day ahead and as such, you don't have a lot of time for distractions or conversations that go nowhere. That's why you'll have to be more strategic about who you lend an ear to and when, namely if people are coming to your for advice or venting their troubles to you. Guard your space.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Your money remains the center of your attention today, but instead of second guessing yourself when it comes to going after what you want, you've got the eye of the tiger today. Make this confidence work for you and connect with the gatekeepers in your field. You could unlock an opportunity.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
The spotlight is on how you feel today and if you've got something on your chest, there's no time like the present to get it off. This is especially the case when it comes to your money or something you believe you deserve. In other words, don't suffer in silence. Your words have power. Use them.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Your intuition is spot on now and it's getting harder to deny the insight you're getting as of late. That's why when it comes to your hopes and wishes, it's better to concentrate on what you do want instead of the disappointments and hurts of the past. Meanwhile, a friend could use some words of support.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
With people backing you far and wide, you could receive an opportunity today by way of someone behind the scenes that's been spreading the good word about you. That's the thing about progress, it's happening even if you can't immediately see it. Remember that today if you start to worry about anything.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
People are really taking notice of what you do. As such, now is the time to think about how you can leverage this attention into opportunities. Who's on Team Aquarius right now? How can you turn them into your brand ambassadors? Look to new ways you can share and spread your message.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You're in the mood to go in a new direction and you may want to start with your career. This could mean pursuing new interests or moving on to a position where you feel valued (financially and otherwise). Either way, know that the sky's the limit. Be strategic about whom you network or align with.
