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. 13, 2017.
The Moon leaves the emotional waters of Cancer, for the fires of Leo early this morning, which lightens the mood. Though we may have to be mindful of taking things too personally and giving in to drama as the Leo Moon pulls away from a square off with Jupiter in passionate Scorpio. Under a Leo Moon, we're apt to want attention and appreciation but with Jupiter in the mix, we'll need to be wary of becoming self-indulgent. However, the best way to use the energy of a Leo Moon is to look at the areas in our lives where we may be playing ourselves small and to show up for ourselves with ferocity and style.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You may be feeling a bit of tug of war when it comes to your heart today. Part of you just wants to have fun, while the other half wants something more intimate. Is there a way that you can appease both sides? It may require you avoiding doing something impulsive for the time being. Think it through.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
There's a strong chance that you and your partner or someone close to you may not see eye to eye today, which could have one or both of you taking things to the extreme. Part of the issue is that you could be feeling extra sensitive today. If this is the case, give each other a little space to breathe.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You may be busier than usual today as work piles up in your inbox and your list of errands gets longer. Though you may think it's necessary, there's no need to be a superhero. On another note, a co-worker could rub you the wrong way. Try not to give them more of your energy than necessary.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You may be in the mood to splurge today, but you might want to be careful of overdoing it when it comes to your cash. Meanwhile, when it comes to your creative gifts, make sure you're not underselling yourself. Don't be afraid to ask for what you're worth. You have much that you bring to the table.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You may be feeling a bit more emo and sensitive today, which is a good reason to pay special attention to your own needs. Though at the same time, don't feel like you have to soldier through whatever you're feeling alone. Your family or someone close to you could offer you some support. Take care of you.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You may be feeling a bit overwhelmed today because of how much you have to do and how much you'd rather be sleeping, or off doing your own thing, at the very least. Don't overdo it and try and get the rest you need. On another note, it may be best to keep your thoughts and opinions to yourself for now.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
A friend could come to you today in need but you may want to think twice before dole out your time, energy, or cash to come to their aid; especially if this is a person that is always in need of rescuing. If they're not on your list of priorities, that's OK. Sometimes a little self-preservation doesn't hurt.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You may be looking for validation or appreciation from others today, but you're more than likely looking in the wrong place. The only place you should be looking now is within. Believe in you first. Meanwhile, if you're feeling underappreciated at work, perhaps it's time to start planning your exit.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You may feel in the need to speak out on something you believe in today. Don't let fear stop you from speaking your truth. Meanwhile, you could be feeling a bit defeated or disillusioned when it comes to turning a vision into something real. Don't give up, but take baby steps for right now.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You may be feeling a strange mix between wanting to be social and wanting to keep to yourself, even though you're craving some attention. While you don't have to be more available than you need to, time spent with your lover or a close friend might do. Financially, you may need to rethink a big plan.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You may be feeling pulled between your professional ambitions and a significant relationship, or at least the promise of one. While a partner shouldn't hold you back from pursuing your goals, there's a chance that you're afraid that they will. Though are you blowing things out of proportion?
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You may have a lot on your plate today, but it's best not to take on more than you can handle. Save yourself the unnecessary stress. Though do take some time today to nourish yourself and have the luxury of saying "no". When it comes to fulfilling a dream, work out the small details.
