In this daily horoscope for April 19, 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.
After the fast-paced energy of Aries season, the pace slows down a few notches as the sun moves to stabilizing and comfort-seeking Taurus by the late afternoon. Before Taurus season gets officially underway, chatty Mercury kicks off festivities when it enters Taurus in the early a.m. With Mercury in Taurus, we’re encouraged to focus on more practical matters and to make decisions according to our values. Since earthy Taurus is also a sensual sign, we’re encouraged to take time out to feed our five senses, which could help with alleviating any stress we might feel.
With the moon finishing her stay in tenderhearted Cancer, we’re encouraged to seek out the people and things that nourish us from the inside out. Doing so will be especially helpful when the moon opposes power-hungry Pluto in Capricorn later tonight, which can dredge up uncomfortable feelings. At the same time, we’re called to do what we can to nurture and nourish others as Cancer is a sign that favors family and community.
