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 5, 2019.
The big news of the day comes courtesy of the New Moon in ambitious and adventurous Aries (4:50 a.m. EST). Coming off the heels of a very precarious and confusing Mercury retrograde, this new moon helps us to find the focus and motivation we need to go after what we want. As such, we can look to this Aries Moon to give us the fresh start necessary to achieve success.
Though focus and determination is surely what we'll need as the Aries Moon goes on to square off with no-nonsense Saturn and power-hungry Pluto in Capricorn by the late afternoon. Under this cosmic combination, getting what we want will require courage, discipline, integrity, and a practical approach. With Pluto in the mix, we're also reminded to only go after the things we're truly passionate about. This is not the time for giving our energy to a half-hearted approach or fleeting interest.
By later tonight, we should find ourselves feeling encouraged about the future and in good spirits as the Aries Moon teams up with happy-go-lucky Jupiter in Sagittarius. Overall, it's time to take a risk on something wonderful.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and make sure to check out your April 2019 horoscope.
