Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, founder of My Life Created, shares every zodiac sign's daily horoscope for today, May 16, 2022.

For those of us on the east coast, a powerful lunar eclipse in emotionally intense Scorpio takes place in the wee hours of the morning. Although the eclipse took place yesterday for west coast folks, it’s safe to say we’re all feeling the effects. Moodiness and anxiety are just some of the feelings that may be coming up at this time. Though for some of us, there may be a spirit of resolve in the air as we’re ready to embrace the changes that this cosmic event will bring.

With eclipses in Scorpio, there may be something we’re ready to release or toss out of our life, especially if it’s affecting our wellness or is no longer sustainable. Scorpio is a sign that encourages us to confront our fears and challenges head-on. On a collective level, mental health will be a big focus under this eclipse, as will matters concerning the financial market and reproductive rights.

A few hours later, after the eclipse, the moon moves to philosophical Sagittarius. By mid-morning, the moon teams up with optimistic and spirited Jupiter in Aries. This cosmic combo encourages us to find the silver lining and to look for the light in the darkness. With a little hope and a can-do attitude we turn things around for the better. Standing up for what’s right helps, too. When la luna opposes Mercury (retrograde) in chatty Gemini, a few laughs can go a long way.
