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 8, 2019.
After teaming up with powerful Pluto at the start of the day, which can be helpful for giving us the drive and motivation we need, the Taurus Moon goes Void-of-Course (aka the period of time when the Moon is transitioning between zodiac signs). Under a VOC Moon, it's best to tie up loose ends and handle unfinished business rather than initiate anything important. Taurus Moons are usually good for focusing on our physical bodies and putting in the hours needed to finish a job.
By the late afternoon, the Moon enters curious and communicative Gemini; putting us in the mood to learn, to entertain multiple options and activities, and to connect with others. With the Gemini Moon teaming up with wounded Chiron in Aries by late tonight, some of us could find the courage needed to speak up and out about something we've been afraid to bring up.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and make sure to check out your April 2019 horoscope.
