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. 17, 2017.
Our minds should be sharp and ready to go this morning as the Moon finishes her transit through analytical Virgo while Mercury, the planet of communication, moves into super focused Scorpio. Meanwhile there's a meetup between the Virgo Moon and Mars in Virgo, that could have us feeling hypersensitive if we're not mindful. The best way to use this Moon-Mars combination is by finding the strength or courage to tackle tasks, responsibilities, and other situations that we may much rather avoid. By the mid-afternoon the Moon shifts into partnership oriented Libra, which may take some of the edge off the morning; putting us in the mood for beauty, romance, and finding ways to better relate to others. By the late evening, the Libra Moon meets up with Venus in Libra ending the day on a high note. This Moon-Venus meetup marks the perfect time for socializing or catching someone's eye.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today and be sure to check out your October 2017 monthly horoscope, too.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Your money is on your mind for a good portion of the day, which means it's the perfect time to get your cash straight. Setting up a better system to manage debt and savings could be helpful. Meanwhile, things are heating up when it comes to your love life. Don't be afraid to open up your heart.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Could things be getting interesting on the romantic front? It sure looks like it. Though as exciting as this love affair (or the potential of one) may be, make sure this person is able to emotionally show up for you. On a different note, you're in the mood to treat yourself. Do what feels good for your body.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Someone at home may be running your nerves ragged today, which could have you ready to lash out. However, the tension could be what you need to finally address the issue. Meanwhile, it's time to get organized and on top of your game. Find ways to cut out distractions. You can have fun later in the eve.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You might find yourself feeling quite outspoken today, though it may be best to question the intent of your words. Specifically, are you using your words to heal or hurt? Sometimes things need to be said and sometimes they don't. Meanwhile, family gives you just what you need and love gets a nice boost.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Watch your spending today, as you may be in the mood for an impulse buy. However, this could be a good time for following up on money owed to you or asking for a raise, especially if the extra cash will be going towards something home related. You have the power of persuasion now. Use it for good.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You might have to give people fair warning today, if only to protect innocent bystanders as you may be feeling like you could go off at any minute. If you need to get something off your chest, do so, but try not to be combative just because. On a different note, things are looking up for you financially.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You may be feeling a bit agitated today, but that could be a cue that you need to do something to blow off all that pent up energy you have. Getting your body moving can do the trick, as well as letting out a good scream (in private of course). Meanwhile change up your scenery. Cash is coming in.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Let's talk about you, Scorpio. Now that people are going to be hanging on to your every word, make sure you give them something worthwhile. You could talk yourself into an opportunity or get the chance to share your expertise with others. Don't worry about showing off. People are digging you.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You could be feeling a bit touchy today when it comes to what others have to say about you. Though you'll need to suss out whether this is something that truly warrants your energy and attention. Chances are you're being overly sensitive. Also, networking can lead to cash. Keep big plans under wraps.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You may be bursting with excitement today, namely when it comes to a new opportunity. You could manifest a job offer, the chance to see your name in print, or media attention around your work. People have their eyes on you now and they're liking what they see. It won't take much to get what you want.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
A sudden expense or your current debt could have you super worried today. However, it's important to know that the crunch you're feeling is temporary. As it stands, you could be in line for a promotion or a better paying position, but you have to be willing to take a gamble on yourself. Don't just settle.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
It's possible that you and your partner or someone close to you could be at each other's throats today but the saving grace here may be your ability not to take anything too personally. Sometimes things aren't about you at all. On a different note, you could get blessed with some extra cash. Invest in a dream.
