In this daily horoscope for April 23, 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.
The focus on quality over quantity continues with the moon still in thoughtful Virgo. In the early morning, the moon teams up with value-driven Venus in Taurus, which helps us to be focused and intentional with our time and resources. This theme continues as go-getter Mars enters emotional yet security-oriented Cancer near the start of the day. With Mars in Cancer, we’re motivated by our emotions. As a result, we’ll find ourselves looking to involve ourselves with things that give us a level of safety, comfort, and reliability.
Since Mars in Cancer spends the day under the influence of the moon in organized Virgo, sticking to routine will be particularly helpful today. However, with the Virgo moon opposing hazy Neptune in Pisces by late tonight, we’re encouraged to release routines that are no longer working, too restrictive, or stringent.
