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 Oct. 10, 2017.
It's a busy, busy day ahead as the Moon continues to transit through curious and chatty Gemini, meeting up with several planets along the way. Though the biggest event of the day happens when Jupiter, the planet of growth, abundance, and opportunity begins its yearlong transit through seductive Scorpio. With Jupiter in Scorpio stretching our limits and pushing us to step out of our comfort zones, the opportunities for growth and prosperity lie in our ability to face our fears and claim our personal power.
Meanwhile, the Gemini Moon squares off with Venus and Mars in Virgo, coupled by an opposition to serious Saturn in Sagittarius, which could have us feeling a bit cranky and easily annoyed when it comes to others. The best way to handle this energy is to work to find solutions rather than problems alone.
"The Gemini Moon gets some support from freedom-loving Uranus in Aries, which invites us to shake off the troubles of the day."
By the evening, the Gemini Moon gets some support from freedom-loving Uranus in Aries, which invites us to shake off the troubles of the day. Towards the end of the night, the Moon shifts into cozy Cancer, which creates just the right vibe for rest and relaxation. When the Moon meets up with Jupiter in Scorpio just before midnight (EST), the day ends on a positive note.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You've got so many things on your plate today, so it may be easy for you to feel overwhelmed. That's why you may have to be very intentional with how you channel your energy. You don't always have to be the hero. Though do make sure that once your work is done you'll get some emotional nourishment.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
A financial concern may hamper your fun today, which could have you feeling a way. Though may not be able to do anything big budget for the time being, it doesn't mean you have to scrap your plan entirely. You may just need to keep it low-key. Meanwhile, a convo with a friend could be just what you need.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You may find yourself feeling a bit moody today, which could have you at odds with your family or someone you're close to. Though instead of letting them work your nerves, it may help if you keep yourself busy with something productive or spend time in the company of friends. Set boundaries.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
It may be hard for you to concentrate today, when you'd much rather be off doing your own thing, or at the very least catching a nap. That's why it'll be best to slow down and take the day as it comes. The most important thing is that you be gentle with yourself. Also, take time to decompress as needed.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Something you've been wishing for may seem like an impossible dream today, especially where your finances are concerned. Though while this doesn't mean you have to give up on what you want, it may mean that you have to take a different approach. This may mean taming your inner control freak.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You may find yourself craving attention and praise today when it comes to your work or your reputation. However, that attention may not be as forthcoming as you'd like. Still, that doesn't mean that you shouldn't value what you do, as looking for outside validation won't help you feel better.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Something may be weighing down on you today, which may not have you feeling like your usual upbeat self. Though the fear or pessimism you're experiencing may just be a matter of you thinking the problem is bigger than what it really is. Getting feedback from someone may shift your perspective.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Feel that? That's the cosmos shifting and you're shifting right along with it. You're about to embark on a brand new journey and it's important that you carry as little with you as you move forward. In other words, it's time to shake what you've outgrown. Consider today to be the start of that purge.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You could be feeling like you're being pulled in 10 different directions today because of the demands of your work and the needs of someone close to you. While it may be easy to lose your cool, you don't have to let things get to you more than they should. Set limits on how much you do and take a timeout.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
It may feel like you're spinning in circles today when it comes to a project or task before you. While you may be eager to just get it done, you may be biting off more than you can chew at the moment. However, that doesn't mean that you can't get it done at all. You may just need to call on some assistance.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
A friendship or romance may be put to the test today, especially if it seems that you've been giving this person more than you've been receiving. Not that a relationship should be built on a a tit-for-tat dynamic, but it should feel mutually beneficial. If that's not the case then it's time to be vocal about it.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You may not be on the same page today with your partner (either professional or romantic) which could have you feeling a lack of support when it comes to something you're working towards. However, that doesn't mean you should give up. Remember, you make the rules you live by.
