In this daily horoscope for May 5, 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.
The vibe is mostly chill today, with the moon in dreamy Pisces. When the moon is in Pisces, we’re encouraged to go with the flow of the day. Our emotions and intuition are heightened now, making it a good time for self-care and/or self-relfection. With the Pisces moon teaming up with active Mars in tenderhearted Cancer by midday, it could be a time for doing something kind on behalf of others or getting the support we need. Emotions could be more pronounced than usual today, making it important to take care of one another.
By the evening, the moon in Pisces meets up with innovative Uranus in Taurus. If we’ve been feeling stuck or uninspired, this cosmic combo could help us with finding inspiration and uncovering untapped potential. For those of us needing a creative breakthrough, this Moon-Uranus combo can also deliver.
