Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, founder of My Life Created, shares every zodiac sign's daily horoscope for today, May 5, 2022.

The moon is at home in tenderhearted Cancer today. When the moon is placed in this deep feeling sign, our focus is brought to our emotions. During this time, it’s not unusual for our feelings to be closer to the surface than they normally are, no matter if we’re feeling weepy or joyful. As we’re still in the midst of the turbulence of eclipse season, today provides with the opportunity to find some comfort and reprieve.

However, the sun makes a rare but impactful alignment with innovative Uranus today, while both planets sit in security-minded Taurus. As such, today’s aim is not only about seeking out solace or ease. It’s also about trying something different or making some sort of a lifestyle change to find that relief. Although the moon is in protective Cancer, in some ways today encourages us to step beyond our comfort zone. In order to find the peace we’re looking for, sometimes we have to do something that’s a little uncomfortable.

At the same time, today’s Sun-Uranus aspect alongside the Cancer moon can also make for some juicy creative energy. All that we’d need to do to tap into it, is to go where we feel intuitively led or do what comes naturally.
