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. 18, 2017.
The Moon continues to travel through Libra, which means that much of our focus remains on our relationships and creative energy. Through Libra, the goal is to bring balance and harmony to our lives and the lives of others by wit, charm, and common courtesy. By later tonight, the vibe gets a bit prickly as the Libra Moon squares off with power-hungry Pluto in Capricorn. Under this combination we could find ourselves on edge, which could lead to an emotional outburst or a battle of sorts with someone else. Though uncomfortable, this Moon-Pluto aspect could bring a hidden relationship issue to light so it can be addressed and put to rest. However, we should try not to take anything too personally.
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)
When it comes to getting where you want to go, namely when it comes to your career and ambitions, it may be best to team up with others than to try to go it alone. On that same note, it's also wise to be strategic about who you team up with. It could be time to part ways with someone that's stifling you.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
It's one thing to have a conviction, and it's another thing to believe something so strongly that it blocks your ability to see other options or viewpoints. Today, you may be faced with the challenge of rethinking something you deeply believe as it may be impeding your progress rather than helping it.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Creatively you're on fire today, which means you could receive the inspiration you need to finally start that creative project that's been bubbling underneath the surface for you. In matters of the heart, you may need to remove the blinders to see someone for who they really are. Face what scares you.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You and your partner or perhaps someone you live with may not be on the same page today, namely when it comes to an old, buried issue. Though before things get blown too far out of proportion, it may help to ground and center yourself first before broaching the subject. No need for a crisis.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
When it comes to your job, you may be itching to make a big move or take on everything at once. While you may want to take a drastic approach, take your time and plan. Having a proper strategy will keep you from getting stressed out and overwhelmed. Meanwhile, don't let a co-worker get under your skin.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You could be feeling a bit moody today, especially when it comes to something family related or something from the past bubbling up to the surface. You don't have to pretend all is OK when it's not. Give yourself space to feel what you feel. At the same time though, don't let fear get the best of you.
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)
It may be best to take it easy today if you can, because you may be on a bit of a system overload. If you can afford yourself some quiet space today, you could have a breakthrough of sorts that you on a new path. Someone you know could be a powerful ally. Start a conversation. It could lead to an opportunity.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Your popularity is growing thanks to your talent or passion but your task isn't only about establishing new contacts but figuring out a way to translate your reach into financial opportunities. This just means you have to get busy and dig deeper into your work. Don't be afraid to get the help of others either.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You're never the one to turn down money but today could be one of the times that you do. Basically, when it comes to an opportunity you need to ask yourself if it's truly something that resonates with you or if it's something that's feeding a more superficial need. In other words, don't sell your soul.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You're feeling a craving today to push yourself further than you've been before, which means you may have to decide whether it's time to take a risk on something you believe in. Take a gamble on you. Don't let past frustrations or disappointments get in the way of you living the life that you want.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You may be feeling like something you want isn't coming together, perhaps due to some buried fears or a financial issue. However, trust that you've done all that you can and try to focus on the things you can handle. If necessary, call on a close friend for help. Don't take anything as a final say.
