In this daily horoscope for April 30, 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.
Innovation and originality are the buzzwords of the day with the confident sun and unconventional Uranus meeting up this afternoon in creative Taurus. Under this Sun-Uranus combo, we’re encouraged to embrace change and break free of self-imposed limitations. With the moon in freedom-loving Sagittarius teaming up with Jupiter in independent Aquarius at the start of the day, we called to think progressively too.
By the afternoon, the moon enters enterprising Capricorn, putting us in a goal-oriented state of mind. Between the Sun-Uranus meetup and the moon in Capricorn, it’s a good time for working toward what we want to achieve. It’s also a good time for looking at where we need to switch up our approach, break new ground, or honor our individuality in getting to where we want to go. However, with the Capricorn moon opposing moody Mars in Cancer by the evening, making situations a little touchier than usual, we may need to be mindful of where we are too resistant to support, feedback, or group participation.
