We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible or how each sign handles conflict in relationships. That's why Bustle has enlisted Mecca Woods, a New York City-based astrologer of MyLifeCreated.com, to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each day. Today's topic: your daily horoscope for July 19, 2019.
Our sensitivity and intuition are heightened today thanks to communicative Mercury dipping back into tenderhearted Cancer in the wee hours of the morning. With Mercury retrograde in Cancer, we might find ourselves feeling super nostalgic now, making it a good time to reconnect with the people that we love but haven't seen in ages. Mercury in Cancer also pushes us to be a bit more self-reflective and to speak from the heart. Though with this cosmic energy, we'll also have to guard against taking things said or done too personally.
By the late afternoon, the tenderness in the air increases as the Moon shifts into dreamy and compassionate Pisces. With the Moon in Pisces, we should find ourselves in the mood for anything that replenishes our soul. Between Mercury and Cancer and the Moon in Pisces, the evening is the perfect time for kicking back and relaxing or engaging in therapeutic or meditative activities.
Though for those of us that might be a little too deep in our feels, this cosmic combo pushes us to lean on others for support. Others may be called to provide emotional support and care. With the Moon in Pisces, a little kindness goes a long way.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and make sure to check out your July 2019 monthly horoscope.
