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 July 5, 2017.
It's a high-flying kind of a day with the Moon in adventurous Sagittarius, putting us in the mood for mind-expanding experiences and the pursuit of our biggest dreams. The day kicks off with an opposition between the Sagittarius Moon and Venus in curious Gemini during the very early hours of the morning, kicking our desire for something or someone new into overdrive. Between Sagittarius and Gemini, the more the merrier. We just need to be careful of overdoing it. By the late evening, communicative Mercury leaves the emotional realm of Cancer for the passionate and creative realm of Leo.
With Mercury in Leo, we can expect words, thoughts, ideas, and communications to be bold, loud, and dramatic. Mercury in Leo can be helpful when it comes to speaking from the heart, finding the confidence to say what's on our minds, or allowing ourselves to shine through our brilliant ideas. Moments later, the Sun in Cancer and Neptune in imaginative Pisces meet up, creating an intimate, dreamy atmosphere that's perfect for cozying up to someone we love, keying in to our intuition, or catching some Z's. The day ends with a square off between the Cancer Sun and Jupiter in Libra, which could have us looking without leaping or being overly confident. The best thing to do is to try and take it easy.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
"Escape" is the word of the day for you, as you should find yourself in the mood for brand new experiences and a break from the monotony. Getting up and getting away may also be the best move for you as there's a chance you and someone you're close to may not see eye to eye. Take a time out.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Your finances are in the spotlight as you're called to switch up your approach when it comes to fulfilling your hopes and wishes. It could be easy for you to feel overwhelmed today if you attempt to take on too many things at once, overspending included. Meanwhile, it's time to better utilize your network.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Teamwork and partnership is the focus for you today as you're given the green light to join forces with someone that may be able to help you uncover an opportunity or expose you to positive new experiences. In love, quality beats quantity right now. It's possible to have what you want and need.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Self-care is your main concern today, which means that when it comes to others, especially those closest to you, you may need to worry less about what they think or expect of you, and start paying more attention to what you want. Remember, your happiness and fulfillment matters too. Don't settle.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
There's lots of attention on you today, as you have the ability to have folks holding on to your every word. Though before you say anything, it's important to ask yourself if you're using your voice to hurt or to heal. Use the power of your words constructively while speaking on what's in your heart.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You may be eager to get your plans off the ground today, but you may need to take a couple steps back first to make sure you have what you need, especially when it comes to your finances. It's not that what you want can't happen, it just means that you may have to go back to the drawing board for now.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Today should be a fairly busy one as you try to get your hands on just about everything you can touch, hear, and see. At the same time, are you trying to be everything to everyone? Now's not the time for spreading yourself thin or attempting to be something you're not. It's simply too exhausting.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Your money is on your mind today, which includes making sure you have what you need for your short and long term security. Though in order to do that, you may have to first let go of any self-limiting beliefs or outworn ideas around money and abundance. Your career is about to heat up.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
The focus is on you and what you need today, which means there's a possibility a relationship or connection to someone could be more trouble than it's worth, especially if they're putting an emotional drain on you. It's time to pull back and go in a different direction. Go your own way.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
It's time to get quiet and focus on your emotional health right now, especially if you feel close to burning out. Journaling, meditation, or working with a coach or therapist could be what you need to address whatever fears or challenges you may be facing. Overall, don't bottle these feelings up.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Your friendships and associations take center stage for you today as you're pushed to open yourself up to the power of receiving. Simply put, there's no reason why you should take on everything on your own when you have people at the ready who want to help and support you. Let them in.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You might find that all eyes are on you today, especially when it comes to your talent and your career. While there's a chance that this attention could lead to an opportunity, it's important to make sure that whatever's offered to you compensates you fairly enough for your genius. Have faith in yourself.
