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. 27, 2017.
It's a high-energy day thanks to the Moon in Aquarius inspiring us to leave what's old and outworn behind and to take on a fresh, new approach. Like fellow air signs Gemini and Libra, Aquarius is a social sign, which means we'll also be in the mood to share ideas and information with others. This feeling will be especially strong by the late afternoon, when the Moon meets up with Mars in partnership-oriented Libra. This Moon-Mars combo could make us a bit touchy, though, so we'll have to be mindful of getting roped into arguments or saying things we may want to take back later. About an hour later, the Aquarius Moon squares off with Jupiter in Libra, which could have us in an overindulgent mood. The best way to approach anything will be with moderation.
Toward evening, the Moon squares off with the Sun in Scorpio, which could trigger feelings around not getting something we want or feeling as appreciated as we should. We should look to Mars in Libra to help us to coolly detach from any particular outcome. By the late evening, Venus in Libra squares off with power-hungry Pluto in Capricorn, which could have us taking an all-or-nothing approach when it comes to money and relationships. The best way to handle this energy to be intentional with our choices and decisions. The meetup between Mercury in Scorpio and Pluto in Cap, inspires us to see beyond the obvious, which could be helpful for such decision making.
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)
You may feel like something you’ve been working toward or wishing for is still too far out of reach, especially when it comes to your finances. It may be time to acknowledge that you could use some help in getting where you want to be. Meanwhile, it's time to leave a toxic friendship behind. Take care of you.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Someone may not be as cooperative as you need them to be when it comes to work today, which could have you in a fighting mood. Before you go off, ask yourself if there's a way that you can take the lead in getting the job done or find a win-win compromise between you. Try not to take anything personally.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You're in the mood for some fun today, but the pending items on your to-do list seem to be saying otherwise. As such, try to stay on top of your time management today to avoid getting burned out. When it comes to a big plan or idea, you may need to re-strategize or work out some of the smaller details.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You may be wanting more intimacy in a romantic relationship than you're getting right now, which begs the question of whether you are being totally clear or upfront about what you want; at least with yourself. On a different note, you and your love may need to get together to discuss your finances.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Is someone demanding something of you that you can't afford to give right now, namely your emotional energy? If that's the case, you may need to be upfront and vocal about what you're willing and not willing to do. You owe yourself that much. Don't allow yourself to be manipulated or controlled.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You might feel like you're spinning your wheels and can't seem to get anything done. Try to pace yourself when it comes to tackling what's on your plate. Do you really need to get to everything today? On another note, you could get the push you need to leave a toxic job behind. Something better for you is coming.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You could receive a job offer or come across a new professional opportunity. However, before you gladly accept, ask yourself if this position will allow you the creative freedom and autonomy you crave or if it's just more of the same. You don't have to settle for any old thing that's handed to you. Level up.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Did this morning kick off with a false start? It may be due to you taking on too much, especially when it comes to a home- or family-related matter. Try not to sit and stew in your feelings, though. Look to ways that you can healthily blow off steam, even if you need to disappear for a bit. Take a break.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You could feel haunted by an old fear or worry today, which could throw you off-kilter. Try not to freak out too much and keep yourself focused on the outcomes you actually want. If that fails, try connecting with people today that fuel and inspire you. Sometimes it helps to have a little reminder.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
There's a possibility that you and a friend might not be on the same page today, but the friction between you could be pointing to a need for you to redefine your personal boundaries and values. As such, it may be time for you to go your own way or be a bit more stubborn about what you want.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Your stress levels could be high today, as you face pressure from your career and attempting to live up to your high ideals and the standards of others. While you should go after the things that inspire you, recognize that Rome wasn't built in a day. Pace yourself and try to find the middle ground here.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You could be feeling a bit disenchanted today as your faith is tested. Know that it’s OK to challenge something you believe, or once believed, to be true, especially if it doesn’t align with what you truly want or the person you're becoming. Don’t accept anything at face value. Dig deeper.
