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 17, 2019.
The Moon remains in all-or-nothing Scorpio today, putting us in the mood to delve into our passions, secrets, intimate experiences, and the emotional depths. Though with Saturday's Full Moon in Scorpio fast approaching, we're also called to leave something in the past behind. This theme will be especially strong as the Scorpio Moon opposes unconventional Uranus in Taurus in the wee hours of this morning.
This Moon-Uranus combination should give us a craving to break away from whatever has become stale and outworn in our lives in favor of something much better. As such, this cosmic combo could also provide us with an emotional catharsis of sorts which could pave the way for healing, new beginnings, and overcoming our deepest fears.
