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. 9, 2017.
The Moon shifts into attention-grabbing Leo today, putting us in the mood to be seen, heard, and appreciated in a really big way, especially when the Leo Moon meets up with Mercury in expansive Sagittarius by late this afternoon. However, there's a square off between the Moon and Venus in Scorpio that we'll have to deal with first, as this combination can have us feeling conflicted about what we need versus what we want; namely when it comes to relationships and security. Hint: forcing things to go our way won't work. We should keep this in mind when the Leo Moon goes on to square off with Jupiter in Scorpio later this evening. A little discernment will go a long way.
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)
Romance may be in the air today, but it seems that the depth an intimacy you're craving right now might not be what the object of your affection has to offer. Though there's no sense in settling for something that's not going to fulfill you in the long run. Keep your eyes on the prize for a better match.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You and your partner or someone equally close to you may not be on the same page today. Though instead of letting the issue grow into something bigger, take this as your opportunity to sit down and get honest with each other about what's going on. The truth can be freeing for you both.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
While you're often quick to come to the aid of a friend, are you using your helpfulness as a way to keep people from seeing the real you? In other words, people that truly love you don't keep tallies on how much you do or don't do for them. Remember this as you go about your day. Come as you are.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You could receive a promising job offer today. Though much will depend on whether they're offering you the kind of money you deserve. Before you accept, it may be worth considering if your talent is getting the appreciation it deserves. If staying put at your current job, it's time to ask for a raise.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
The spotlight is on you and how you feel today, and some of those feelings may be conflicted about how much attention you give to a home- or family- related matter. This is not one of those days to go overboard when it comes to how much you give to others. It's OK to save a little something for yourself.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You may be feeling conflicted today as to whether you should take (a much- needed) time out and spend some time alone or if you should be out and about entertaining friends and other folks that may cross your path. However, your best bet is to take advantage of the solitude. Your brain needs a break.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
It may seem like something you've been wishing for may not happen; most likely due to a financial situation. However, it just may mean that you have to get a bit more creative in how you execute the plan. In terms of relationships, it may be time to admit you and a friend are no longer on the same page.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Are you too concerned with what others think of you right now? Your energy is better spent giving yourself the attention and praise you deserve instead. That way you'll have the confidence you need to let go of those that don't value you the way they should. Meanwhile, a job opportunity looks promising.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You may not have the whole story when it comes to someone you may have recently started dating or a potential love interest. Before you get carried away with what could be; it may be worth doing a little investigative research to make sure this person is who they say they are. Seek out the truth.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You and a friend may not see eye-to-eye today, which could have you questioning this person's loyalty or motives. While you could easily confront them about it, it may be more worthwhile to hang back and observe for the time being as the truth will eventually be revealed. Go with your intuition.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You may be feeling pulled between your career and the needs of your love life today, which could have you feeling like you may have to choose between one or the other. If single, know that you don't have to give up your career in lieu of a relationship. It's possible to have both. Be clear on what you want though.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You may have some big ideas that you want to execute today, but it's important that you don't oversimplify the task at hand or attempt to take on more than you can handle. You'e going to need to put in a little more time and planning to make this work. In other news, your career could bring a reward.
