Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, founder of My Life Created, shares every zodiac sign's daily horoscope for today, May 17, 2022.
The moon remains in optimistic Sagittarius today. With the Scorpio eclipse from this past weekend dredging up a lot of yucky feelings, the Sagittarius moon encourages us to get our fill from the people and things that lift our spirits. Enthusiastic Venus in Aries teams up with la luna this morning, nudging us to tap into the more playful side of life.
However, it’s not just all about fun and games today, as the moon in Sagittarius faces off with angry Mars and compassionate Neptune in dreamy Pisces by the second half of the day. Together, this cosmic combination, along with feisty Venus in Aries, encourages us towards activism and doing what we can to make the world a happier place. With supportive Saturn in Aquarius in the mix, we’re called to help others and take care of our community.
Meanwhile, on the more lighter side of things, the mashup of planets between Sagittarius and Pisces can also be helpful in refreshing our creative inspiration. As Mercury retrograde invites us to revisit hobbies and interests, and to take a fresh look at ongoing projects, today’s planetary combo can be beneficial for work and play.
