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. 22, 2017.
The Moon remains in pragmatic Capricorn, helping us to stay focused on the goals we want to accomplish. Meanwhile, Neptune, the planet in charge of hope, faith, and dreams, ends its five month retrograde today, which should help us with implementing our dreams and letting go of illusions. Towards the afternoon, the Capricorn Moon syncs up with Pluto in Capricorn, which could have us fixated on achieving a particular outcome. The best way to harness this energy is to meet challenges head-on and with determination.
By the late afternoon, the Moon teams up with Venus in Scorpio, which could be helpful when it comes to relationships and finances, as both Capricorn and Scorpio have a knack for recognizing quality, while putting in the commitment to get what they want. When the Moon and Venus get together, we'll be able to channel this same energy too. Still, consider the first half of today to be a bit of a calm before the storm as the energy in the air hits a fever pitch when the Capricorn Moon squares off with Mars in Libra. Under this cosmic combination it may be hard to avoid arguments, disagreements, or a general feeling of anxiousness. The best way to deal with this combo is to take a rational, well thought out approach that works for all involved.
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)
You may be feeling the pressure to keep others happy today, especially when it comes to your career. Though you may need to take a step back and consider if the time and energy you're investing into doing so is worth it. Do what works best for you and let others follow your lead. You've got this.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You may have some big plans that you'd like to see come to life, but there's a possibility that you could be taking on more than you can handle right now. It may be best to collaborate with someone or delegate some of your responsibilities so you don't get overwhelmed. It's OK to ask for help.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
A romantic relationship may leave you left wanting today as the object of your affection may not be able to give you the kind of emotional intimacy and depth that you crave. When it comes to your love life in general, it's important that you be discriminate with your choices. It's OK to demand more.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You and your partner may not be on the same page today, which could have you ready to snap and snip at each other. Though you may need to take a bit of a breather before things get too heated. Look to ways to decompress and relax, if possible, as it will help you to better deal with the situation at hand.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You may feel like you're running in circles today, especially with all that you have on your plate. The important thing though is to focus on handling what you can and try not to go into a panic about all the things that you don't have control over. A woman in your family could be a source of support today.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
A romantic relationship may not be all that it's cracked up to be as the person you've got your romantic sights on may not be willing to give as much as they're willing to take from you. Know your worth, Virgo. Trying to fix this person won't make you any happier. There's more out there for you.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You might find yourself feeling more feisty than usual today, especially when it comes to a home- or family-related matter. If someone you live with or are related to has been trying to put undue pressure on you, you could find yourself pushing back. This is OK though, because you need to set boundaries.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You may need an extra dose of self-love today as the day could easily feel overwhelming, especially if something that you've been trying to forget keeps bubbling up to the surface. Find yourself a healthy outlet to channel the energy that's been building. Creatively, you could have a breakthrough.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You may need to take it easy when it comes to your spending today, as instant gratification may not be beneficial for you when it comes to your long-term goals. Meanwhile, a friendship or association may not be all that it's cracked up to be. It may be time to evaluate what this connection is worth to you.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
There's one version of you and there's the version of you that you're willing to let people see, though when it all comes down to it, you have to make sure that those versions align. Simply put, let authenticity be the motivating force for you today, regardless of who's watching. Keep trusting yourself.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
An ideology or belief that you've been holding on to may need to be released in order for you to move forward, especially if you've been looking back far more than you've been looking ahead. There's some amazing things unfolding for you, but you have to be willing to see them. Don't squander your vision.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
A plan or goal that you have may feel like it's not coming together the way you want, most likely due to a financial concern. However, it's important that you don't give up on your dream, even if the process is taking a little longer to complete. Connecting and networking with the right people can help.
