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 8, 2017.
The Moon remains in passionate Aries, which should keep spirits (and in some cases tempers) high today, especially as the Moon syncs up with Venus in playful and passionate Leo this afternoon. Though things may get a little dicey later in the afternoon when the Moon squares off with power-hungry Pluto which may have us feeling like we can take on more than we can really handle. That's why responsible Saturn in Sagittarius will be standing by, helping us to channel our time and energy more efficiently.
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)
You may be feeling some tension today between how much you do for yourself and how much you do for the approval of others. However, when it comes to true empowerment, authenticity and integrity are key ingredients. In other words, don't compromise yourself. Keep following your heart.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Your time is best spent behind the scenes today, as it's important to get in touch with that side of you that you may often try to keep locked away. That's because there's gold in self-discovery. The more you dig and reflect the more you can show up for yourself in the world. Don't be afraid of the depths.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
If you have a message, product, or idea to share with the public; today's a good day to do so as people will be hanging on to your every word and interested in your unique approach. Meanwhile, when it comes to your hopes and wishes are you taking them seriously enough? A collaboration could help.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Your star is on the rise when it comes to your professional life, but it may require that you put an end to a professional or romantic relationship that's been holding you back. As such, you could be in line for a promotion or a raise in salary. Either way, don't be afraid to ask or go for what you really want.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Forget work, because you're ready to have fun today, which means you'll be more concerned with hitting the highway, rather than hitting the work on your desk. That's fine though because you may need some breathing room when it comes a project you may be obsessing over. Take it slow and steady.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You may find yourself intrigued by a certain charming someone, but before you get any closer, you may want to make sure that this person is really who they say they are. While you're craving a soulmate connection, know that a relationship doesn't require emotional pyrotechnics for it to be meaningful.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You and your partner (or a potential partner) may not be on the same page today. Though this could be a good time for you two to sit and talk about what's bothering you both. Communication is key. Meanwhile, you could have a realization that what you thought you wanted from love has changed.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
If you've been job hunting, and have had your heart set on getting a specific offer, you might not necessarily like what you hear today. However, that doesn't mean that you're completely out of the game. You may just need to dig in a little harder to find that perfect opportunity that you want. It's coming!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Your creative energy is on full blast today, which means you shouldn't let it go to waste. Whatever you choose to put your time and energy into now, could lead to a reward for you later. Though there's a chance you could be feeling a bit doubtful of yourself today. Stay focused and don't give up on yourself.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You may be feeling some conflict between pushing yourself and needing some time for rest and reflection today. Though while you usually prefer to take no days off, this is one of those days where you might have to, or else run the risk of burning yourself out. Focus on rebuilding your inner reserves.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
A collaborative effort or partnership could offer you the key to getting an idea or project off the ground. While you often value your independence, this is one of those cases where teamwork makes the dream work. Meanwhile, when it comes to matters of love, this could be a good time for heart-to-heart.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
With the focus still on your cash and how you earn it, there's a good chance that you could receive a promising job offer or lead today. And speaking of your finances, even if a plan still looks a little to far out of reach because of your current cash flow, know it won't be this way for long. Keep pushing.
