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 19, 2017.
The Moon enters unconventional Aquarius early this morning, which should put us in the mood for sweeping changes and free-spirited adventures. Though things may get confusing during the first half of the day as the Moon squares of with Mercury retrograde in Taurus, which could bring up something uncomfortable from the past or set off a disagreement. The best way to handle this energy, it to focus on things that we'd like to let go and tap the Aquarius Moon to help us detach ourselves from them.
However, the big news of the day is when the Sun leaves fiesty and impulsive Aries for the calmer, steadier shores of Taurus later this afternoon, marking the start of Taurus season. With the Sun in Taurus, the spotlight shifts toward establishing material wealth and physical comfort.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.
