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 30, 2019.
The Moon rounds out her stay in intuitive and compassionate Pisces, heightening our sensitivity, especially as the Pisces Moon teams up with dreamy Neptune in Pisces and squares off with chatty Mars in Gemini at the start of the day. This Moon-Mars combo could have our emotions running high. Luckily, the Moon teams up with grounded Saturn and transformative Pluto in Capricorn by the afternoon, which can help us to effectively work through our feelings and heal our wounds.
Though by the late afternoon, the Moon squares off with expansive Jupiter which could either provide us with the optimism we need or exacerbate our uncomfortable feelings. Under the Moon in Pisces, some of the best ways to experience these lunar vibes is through meditation, spending time with loved ones, and engaging in activities that uplift and heal the soul.
