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 April 12, 2019.
With the Moon in tenderhearted Cancer, emotions may be heightened today. As such, we're reminded to pay attention to what we feel and to do what we can to nurture ourselves and others. Though when it comes to certain relationships, some boundaries may be called for, especially as the Cancer Moon and Venus in compassionate Pisces meet up with no-nonsense Saturn in Capricorn by mid-day.
By the late afternoon, the energy gets a bit dicey as the Moon squares off with the Sun in Aries, which could have us feeling torn between what we want and what we need. Though when the Moon opposes powerful Pluto in Capricorn a short while later, we'll be pushed to get crystal clear about what we want and what we don't. With the Cancer Moon meeting up with communicative Mercury in Pisces by the evening, any decisions made should be based on intuition.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and make sure to check out your April 2019 horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
A home or family related matter could be weighing on you today. Though instead of trying to rush in and fix the issue, you may need to come from a more calmer and centered place to solve the problem. In other words, don't force it. Also, a little compassion goes a long way?
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You might be caught between wanting time to yourself and wanting to keep up with all of the appointments and meetings on your to-do list. Your best bet though, is to be selective about who and what you're giving your energy to right now. And if you need support, call a friend.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You might have the urge to splurge today and while that purchase might seem like a good idea now, it's probably best that you focus on your long term financial goals rather than instant gratification. Career-wise, if one door closes now, know that another one will open.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You and your boss or someone you work with might not be on the same page today, which could zap your confidence. Know that you don't have to give your power away to this person. Honor your truth and speak it. Speaking up about how you feel could help you with setting boundaries.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You might be feeling a bit dejected today about something that hasn't come together in the way you hoped. However, trust that whatever is meant for you will find you, so there's no need to force anything or hold on to anything that's not working. Have faith that you'll get what you need.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
It could feel like everyone is pulling at your energy and attention today and you may feel pulled in multiple directions. Communicating what you need as well as what you can and cannot do will help you to avoid burnout and burning bridges. Know that you don't have to be a hero.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
A work related situation could get under your skin today that could have you ready to run for the hills. If this has been a recurring issue, then this could give you the push you need to find something better suited for you. It's time to take care of your health and well-being.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You might have more than enough on your plate today, which might have you feeling a bit overwhelmed. While you have no trouble taking on a challenge, this might be one of those days where you need to pare down your schedule instead of packing it. Make some time for love and fun.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You might need to find the courage to tell a romantic interest how you feel today, especially if it means getting what you need in love. However, the first step in communicating what you need is being honest with yourself first. You have a shot at true intimacy. Take it.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You and your partner or someone you're close to could get into a disagreement today. While tensions could be high now, there's a chance that you two can get back on the same page if you can bring a little tenderness into the situation. You don't always have to be right.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You might be running around in circles today trying to get everything you need to get done squared away while trying to keep everyone happy while you do it. Here's the thing: that might be impossible to do. For now, focus on what matters most - your own happiness and worth.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
When it comes to your creative gifts, you're reminded not to sell yourself short. You have a lot that you offer to the world and it's high time that you see for yourself what others already see. The thing is that you have to make sure that folks see it and compensate you accordingly.
