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. 19, 2017.
The big event of the day happens late this afternoon courtesy of the New Moon in Libra. As new moons mark periods of beginnings, implementation, and fresh starts; a new moon in partnership-oriented Libra offers us a clean slate when it comes to relationships, romance, and partnerships. However, with the new moon coming in at tense opposition to unpredictable and unconventional Uranus in Aries it could present a few hiccups or unexpected developments when it comes to initiating plans, projects, or agreements. The best way to handle this energy is to borrow some of Aries' courage to move forward and begin anew while channeling Libra's gift for moderation and balance.
Look to this morning's meetup between the Libra Moon and Saturn in Sagittarius to help us to realistically assess what needs to change; following up with the new moon to make those changes. By the late evening, the Moon moves into seductive and transformative Scorpio, helping us to shed old skin while putting us in the mood to deeply bond with others.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today and be sure to check out your October 2017 monthly horoscope, too.

Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You could get the chance to bring a dream to life, but you'll need to give yourself room to dream in the first place. Where would you like to see yourself? And no, this is not a "five-year plan" kind of question. It's about seeing more than one path while knowing that no one path is "wrong."
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
It's possible that you could meet someone in a way that feels fated. As such, this person could offer you the security and intimacy that you're seeking. However, you have to make sure they align with your values and standards. Meanwhile, you could find yourself turning over a new financial leaf.
