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 May 1, 2017.
Even though the Moon is in affectionate and cuddly Cancer, today may still be a bit rough around the edges. That's partly because the Cancer Moon kicks the day off with a tense meetup with power-hungry Pluto in Capricorn which could have us feeling hypersensitive and obsessive. By the afternoon, the Moon squares off with Mercury and Uranus in fiery Aries, which could be the cause of an emotional outburst or two. However, by the early evening the Moon has a meetup with no-nonsense Saturn in Sagittarius and healing Chiron in Pisces, which could help us to rationally address whatever's getting under our skin while making space to heal it and let it go.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.
And remember to tune into Bustle's weekly horoscopes video live on Facebook every other Monday at 5 p.m. EST for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Something, like a family-related issue, could trip you up today, throwing a wrench in your momentum. Though whatever's coming to the surface is being revealed so you can find a way to release it and heal. Overall, it's important to remember that you're not stuck, you're reaffirming your path.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You could find out some shocking news or find yourself nearly wanting to explode today when it comes to the way you feel about something or someone. While this may be temporarily disconcerting, it could be what you need to put an end to negative relationship or find your inner strength.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
You could have a disagreement with a friend or someone you know, which could have you feeling like you need to protect or look out for what's yours. Don't think that this is a case of being petty or overly sensitive as when it comes to your relationship with others, you need to establish boundaries.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You may be feeling some push-pull today between your needs and what others think that you should be doing when it comes to your career and ambitions. However, this may be your cue to repair your connection to yourself so that you can better trust yourself. Set your own limits.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Before you rush to say something today, you may need to sit with the words and your feelings for a while before saying something you might regret. Your opinions may be strong now, but are you seeing things as clearly as you should? Overall, this could be a moment for a reality check of sorts.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You may be feeling a bit bleak today when it comes to your future, as something may not be coming together in the way that you want, especially when it comes to your finances or an intimate relationship. However, what you're experiencing may be because you're too fixated on the past.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
There could be some friction today between what your partner thinks you should be doing and what you feel you should be doing, especially when it comes to your goals and ambitions. Perhaps things could be smoothed out by having a clear and rational discussion. Overall, take care of you first.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You could be ready to head for the hills today, especially when it comes to your job. Before you up and quit, it may be helpful to keep your schedule light today and give yourself ample room to chill. Taking on too much now will cause more anxiety than it's worth. Your well-being is worth more.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
A love affair may not be as intimate as you need it to be which could have you ready to cut ties. Though before someone can do good at honoring your feelings, you have to honor them first. Admitting that you want something deeper is the first step. The second is finding strength in vulnerability.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
There could be tension today between you and your partner or someone you live with, as one of you may be feeling neglected by the other. Though instead of stuffing your feelings, pretending like what's bothering isn't, consider talking the matter through. Sometimes you just need to be heard.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You could easily feel like you're spinning your wheels today, if you're not careful. Though the key to keeping things running smoothly is to pay attention to the details and take things slow. While you may want to approach the day with your usual carefree attitude, self-discipline goes a long way.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
When it comes to love and romance, it's important to keep yourself and your heart accountable. If you have standards in terms of what you value in others, you have to make sure you're not compromising on them. On another note, when it comes to your creativity and talent, know what you're worth.
