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. 6, 2017.
Even though the Full Moon was yesterday, the energy and excitement in the air is still high with the Moon in fiery Aries, especially as the Moon meets up with freedom-loving Uranus in Aries and Jupiter in Libra. Under this cosmic combination, we may find it tough to sit still, as the craving for adventure and new experiences will be hard to ignore. We can best use this energy to break free of anything that has been holding us back (like fear). Toward evening, things calm down considerably as the Moon shifts into laid-back Taurus. After such a high-octane week, the Taurus Moon will help to provide some comfort and relaxation.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You may be feeling some tension between doing your own thing and following someone else's lead, though when it comes to your relationships (professional or romantic) what you really need is someone that's interested in helping you grow. Part of that may include giving you the space to be who you are.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You may be feeling a bit anxious today, which could have you overwhelmed. If that's the case, know that you don't have to be a victim to your thoughts. Talk with someone you trust or take a break and get out into the fresh air. Overall, make this a day for tending to what you need. Everything else can wait.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
When it comes to your hopes and wishes, isn't it time you take a gamble on yourself? Simply put, now's not the time to play yourself small or hold yourself back out of a fear of failure. You know what you want. Go after it. You might be delightfully surprised at the results. Don't lose faith, especially in yourself.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Your career continues to heat up as you're pushed to stop second guessing yourself and trust your instincts. If you're not feeling fulfilled with what you're doing, don't you owe it to yourself to change that? Though, if you like where you are, it's time to bring some new energy to the table. Shake things up.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You're in the mood for something different than your usual today, which makes it a perfect time to get out and try something new, even if it's a new restaurant that you've been wanting to check out. Overall, it's time to challenge your old way of thinking and doing things. Be open to change.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
While your money has been looking a bit funny for a while, there's a chance that you could receive a bonus, raise, or another financial boon in the nick of time today. At the same time, you may want to be wary of impulse spending as it could exacerbate a financial issue. Meanwhile, demand more from life.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Keeping in theme with yesterday's full moon, you're asked to continue the process of releasing relationships (or a specific relationship) in particular that has held you back. At the same time, you're asked to examine the places you've shrunk yourself and to remember how infinite and whole you are.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You might find today to be exceptionally busy, but you'll have the energy to handle whatever gets tossed your way. Still, that doesn't mean you should overdo it, as you still need an equal amount of rest, relaxation, and solitude, especially if you've been busy helping others. Someone comes to your rescue.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Have you been playing it too safe lately? Today may remind you that you still need to be authentically who you are, regardless of what others might think. While it's helpful to have the support of others, make sure you're not living solely for outside validation. That said, you could use a little more self-care.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You could be feeling rather anxious today, possibly as a result of the many things you have on your plate or an unsettling feeling that things could go haywire at any minute. If either is the case, don't get caught in a loop of worry. Focus on what you can control for right now, and then allow yourself some fun.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You might find yourself caught in a whirlwind of activities and projects today, which isn't necessarily as bad thing, as your brain could use the stimulation of learning something new. Meanwhile the right conversation could lead you to an opportunity. Yet, come later in the day, it's time to kick back and chill.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
Where are you selling yourself short? You're asked to examine this question today. Whether you've been afraid to go after something you want or settling for less than what you're worth, the time has come where that won't be a viable option for you anymore. In other words, it's time to get on your grind.
