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. 5, 2017.
That electricity we're feeling today comes courtesy of the Full Moon in Aries (2:40 p.m. EST), which means that today marks a period of letting go or completion. Under an Aries Moon specifically, we're called to reach down deep, find the fire in our bellies, the courage to let go, and to stand in our power. Though cool-headed Mercury in Libra will be on hand, helping to keep the fire from raging out of control.
If there's something we've been afraid to move on from, the Aries Moon can help us to find the confidence we need to go for what we want. This is especially significant as Venus and Mars meet up in Virgo today, giving us the green light when it comes to finalizing agreements or decisions around love and money. By the late evening, the Aries Moon squares off with Pluto in Capricorn, cranking up the intensity and the possibility for power struggles. We'll have to look to Venus and Mars in Virgo to help us with staying rational and objective.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.
And remember to tune into Bustle's weekly horoscopes video live on Facebook every other Monday at 5 p.m. EST for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.

It's time to let go, Taurus. Something you've been resisting or holding on to for dear life is about to reach its finale, especially if it's been affecting your happiness and well-being. Now's not the time for stubbornness, but for finding the courage to make a change. Something better is coming.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Who's on Team Gemini? That could be the question you're most concerned with today as your friendships and associations are called into the spotlight. You could have a falling out with a friend or make the commitment to seek out more people in which you have something in common. Find your tribe.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Partnership remains the focus for you as you could be taking a relationship (either romantic or professional) to the next level.

Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)

Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
A home or family related matter could come up today which pushes you to challenge your family's legacy or emotional conditioning/beliefs passed down to you. You don't have to follow in your parents' steps. You're here to define what life means to you, for you. Moving or relocating could be an option.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You have a ton of ideas and opinions, which means somewhere there's an audience ready for you. Today you could decide to start that book or plan that talk to connect with that audience.

Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
Your finances are still on the agenda as you could receive a promising job offer or new client.

Working with a financial expert might be of help.
