In this daily horoscope for April 12, Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, founder of My Life Created, shares the astrological events happening today that will affect every zodiac sign. Below, here's a look at how astrology will affect our lives today.
It’s a high-energy start to the day with the moon finishing up her stay in enthusiastic Aries. Before the moon moves to chilled-out Taurus in the afternoon, she meets up with Jupiter in Aquarius and love planet Venus (also in Aries). As we come fresh off Sunday’s new moon in Aries, today’s planetary combo gives us the gusto we need to start anew or make a breakthrough. Though, with the Aries moon facing off with power-hungry Pluto in Capricorn in the morning, we might have to be mindful of taking a “my way or the highway” approach to getting where we want to go.
Come mid-afternoon, the energy settles as the moon moves to stable Taurus. Whenever the moon is in Taurus, we usually find ourselves in the mood to tend to our finances as well as our bodies. Since Taurus is a zodiac sign that loves comfort, we should also find ourselves in the mood for the people and things that make us feel good, like a cozy couch or a tasty homecooked meal.

Today is a reminder that you don’t need to go out of your way to impress folks. All you need to do is be yourself. The light you carry is forever and far-reaching. Bask in it.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Taurus (April 20-May 20)

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Gemini (May 21-June 20)
You get by with the support of your friends and community today, so recognize that vulnerability is a strength, not a weakness. If you need to pull back from the crowd, that’s cool too.
