In this daily horoscope for May 17, 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.
If things felt a bit too slow or sluggish over the weekend, today brings us a big burst of energy. One reason for this is because the confident sun in determined Taurus teams up with powerful Pluto in Capricorn at the start of the day. Under this sun-Pluto combo, we should find the motivation and resolve needed to tackle big problems and handle our business of the day.
The momentum continues as the moon moves to energizing Leo later in the morning, putting us in the mood for fun, creativity, and any situation that allows us to show off our talents. With the moon in Leo for the rest of the day, we’re encouraged to seek out the things that bring us joy and boost our confidence. On the flip side, we may need to be mindful of being too self-focused or stubborn.
