In this daily horoscope for May 19, 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.
Today encourages us to look before we leap, as the moon shifts from fun-loving Leo into pragmatic Virgo by the late afternoon. Before the moon gets to Virgo though, the cosmos sends us a signal to slow down as the Leo moon faces off with Pluto in cautious Capricorn and the sun in sensible Taurus over the first chunk of the day. When it comes to getting what we want, we may need to hold out for it rather than seeking out immediate results or gratification.
Later in the day, when the moon moves to Virgo, the moon makes an opposition to expansive Jupiter in Pisces. While Jupiter in Pisces encourages us to be optimistic, the Virgo moon reminds us that we need to put in some work alongside our good expectations in order to see our expectations through. With love planet Venus in friendly Gemini teaming up with supportive Saturn in Aquarius by the late evening, we’re also reminded that two heads are better than one when it comes to fulfilling a dream or goal.

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Taurus (April 20-May 20)

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
