Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, founder of My Life Created, shares every zodiac sign's daily horoscope for today, May 9, 2022.
The day starts off with the moon in passionate Leo making an opposition to chilly Saturn in Aquarius. As a result, there could be a bit of a damper on the energy and warmhearted vibes for today. There could be some sadness or sluggishness to contend with under this planetary combination. On the positive side, this Moon-Saturn aspect can help us with recognizing our limits and avoid taking on more responsibility than we manage.
Recognizing our limits is also important when it comes to our relationships and interactions with others today. We should be mindful of overcommitting ourselves if we want to keep stress or frustration down. At the same time, we’re also called to be patient or understanding with others as they exercise their boundaries too.
By the evening, the moon moves to thoughtful Virgo, which encourages us to be helpful and supportive towards each other. The Virgo moon also lends us the opportunity to take stock of where we are so we can make improvements or switch gears. With brainy Mercury set to go retrograde tomorrow, it’ll be necessary to review our progress so we’ll have a clearer plan on where to go next.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Aries (March 21-April 19)
