In this daily horoscope for May 26, 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.
Change is in the air, thanks to today’s game-changing Lunar Eclipse in adventurous Sagittarius. As with the nature of eclipses, there’s a lot of stress in the air, too. The best way to deal with this turbulent astro weather is by leaning into Sagittarius’ energy and focusing on things that lift our spirits. With Jupiter, Sagittarius’ planetary ruler currently in soulful Pisces, there could be lots of tears to go around today, as many of us reach a cathartic turning point. Though tears are a good way to release pent-up stress. As such, Jupiter in Pisces calls for us to focus on our spiritual and emotional well-being, encouraging us to unplug and take the time out we need.
With the energizing sun in friendly Gemini and supportive Saturn in community-focused Aquarius, we’re also called to lean on others for support and/or offer support as needed. Under this Sagittarius eclipse, we could experience a crisis in faith at this time, but by recognizing that we’re not alone and have people that we can count on, it can help us with being more optimistic about what’s to come. Speaking of faith, it’ll be exactly what we need to navigate the changes this eclipse is bringing. At the same time, Gemini season reminds us to stay flexible and allow curiosity to guide us forward.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Aries (March 21-April 19)
Now’s not the time to have it all figured out, Aries. Besides, that would ruin the fun of your journey. The sooner you accept that you’ll never really stop being a student, the sooner things will make sense.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You might be afraid to let something or someone go. Don’t let this thing you’re holding onto continue to block you from getting everything you want and then some. Ask for more.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Gemini (May 21-June 20)
A relationship or business partnership may be ending now. Though try not to be too broken up about it. Putting an end to an old contract helps you to keep the contract you’ve made with yourself.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Cancer (June 21-July 22)
Be mindful of letting fear or awfulizing get the best of you now. What seems like a curse (at first) is actually a blessing. Keep this in mind as you move forward. The universe has your back.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
You’ve been learning some hard lessons about yourself and love. Rather than letting these experiences close your heart, why not take this wiser, more authentic version of yourself out for a spin?
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
It’s time to say goodbye to a residence, an old way of life, or worn out family dynamics. You need space to flourish and plant the seeds you want to grow. You’ll get that space when you decide to take it.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Today pushes you to pursue the things that are truly fulfilling. Be wary of things that are all sparkle and no substance. What’s meant for you might not arrive or look the way you think it will.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
It’s time to look at the ways that you’ve been settling out of fear or a need for familiarity. Know that you’re worthy of having the happiness you seek. You just need to give yourself the space to get it.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
Some extra rest may be needed, as you're pushed to slow down and put more thought into your well-being and actions. Know that being choosier doesn’t limit you, it just helps you get more of what you want.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Now's not the time for certainty. Now's the time for learning how to be present and go with the flow, even if the path forward isn't entirely clear. This is how faith works. This is how you move forward.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
Focusing less on others gives you the time and energy to focus on what you have and what you want to grow. This is the work you're called to do. It’s time to shine your light, not dim it.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
You could go in an entirely new direction career-wise, especially if you're looking for something that gives you more purpose and meaning. That said, you don’t need anyone’s validation but your own.
