In this daily horoscope for April 27, 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 moon remains in all-or-nothing Scorpio today, heightening our instincts, as well as our emotions. With the Scorpio moon spending much of the day locked in a battle with cold Saturn in Aquarius and multiple planets in comfort-seeking Taurus, it’ll be hard not to take our emotions to extremes. There could hiccups and frustrations along the way, particularly where relationships, goals, and finances are concerned. For some of us, we may need to be mindful of where we’re being too stubborn, inflexible, or demanding. For others, we may need to be more focused or consistent.
By the late afternoon, power-hungry Pluto begins its five-month retrograde in ambitious Capricorn, pushing us to work on the areas in our life where we feel powerless or stuck in negative thinking. Since the moon is in Scorpio and we’re coming off of yesterday’s full moon, this could be a good time to work on kicking a stubborn habit. By the late evening, we get to relax a bit as the moon meets up with dreamy Neptune in Pisces, taking some of the edge off the day.
