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 September 11, 2017.
The Moon finishes her transit through laid-back Taurus this morning, kicking off the day with a chill, lazy vibe. Though once the Moon shifts into chatty Gemini by late this afternoon, that's when the pace really begins to pick up. Under the Gemini Moon, we should find ourselves in the mood to share, discuss, and learn all sorts of new information, while our list of things to do and places to be gets just a little bit longer. However, while a Gemini Moon usually keeps the mood light and cheery, things may get a little rough when the Moon squares off with Mercury in Virgo by the early evening, followed by a square off between the Moon and Mars in Virgo by the end of the night. This Gemini-Virgo match up will not only have us feeling a bit cranky, but it could also mean exchanging some very choice words too. The best way to harness this energy is to channel it into any activity that requires research, writing, or solving a problem.
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.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Today could feel like one of those days where you're spinning your wheels and can't seem to get anything done. Take a time out and engage in something cathartic or therapeutic to help you find focus and clarity. It could just be that you're making mountains out of molehills. Use that brainpower constructively.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You may be craving some fun today, but your financial situation may not be so accommodating. You may have to get creative and come up with another plan for the time being. Meanwhile, it's time to think about whether you're being compensated enough for your creative skills. Don't settle out of fear.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
The focus is on you and your needs today, which could have you feeling more sensitive than usual, namely when it comes to an issue involving your family or something from the past. This may mean that it's time for you to speak up and say how you feel, even if it's uncomfortable. Draw your boundaries.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You may be feeling extra opinionated today, though before you share what's on your mind, stop for a sec and think whether you're using your words to heal or hurt as not everything needs to be said. Meanwhile, if something is truly bothering you, journal writing, meditation, or therapy may help.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Today might be one of those days where you feel like something you’ve been working towards or wishing for is still too far out of your reach. Instead of getting discouraged, it may be time to acknowledge that a fresh, yet carefully planned approach is needed, especially where your finances are concerned.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
There's an old saying that may apply to you today: "take only what you need and leave the rest on the shelf". In this case, it may mean the advice, suggestions, and expectations of others. You have your own mind and your own goals and are free to do with them what you will. Make your own rules.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You may feel a bit disenchanted today as your faith is tested. Recognize that it’s OK to challenge something you believe or thought to be true, especially if it doesn’t align with the person you are becoming. At the same time you may be hyper-focused on the wrong things right now. Take a step back and chill.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
There are times when talking to a friend can be helpful and there are times when it's not. The latter may be true when it comes to today as there's something you need emotionally that your friends may not be able to give right now. That's OK, because you need to trust your intuition anyway.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You may need to take a step back and re-evaluate a business relationship, especially if it seems like you and the other party are going in two different directions. However, try not to respond to the situation from a reactive place. Think logically as to whether or not you're getting what you need here.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You may be attempting to take on way too much today. And while you're usually good at plugging away until you get the job done, you may need to put your self-care and well-being first. In other words, whatever you've got going on right now is not worth the stress it'll cost you. Catch your breath.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You may be craving a deeper connection from someone that they're capable of (or interested in) giving right now. Though don't think that this is a sign that you'll never be able to get the kind of intimacy you want. Couples may need to sit down and have a serious talk about finances or a much deeper issue.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You and your partner or someone you're close to may not be on the same page today, which could stir up a disagreement. Though instead of holding on to your feelings, this might be a good time to speak up and clear the air no matter how uncomfortable it may be. Overall, it's time to let go of the past.
