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 2, 2019.
It's ambitious kind of a day with the Moon in go-getter Aries. And if we play our cards right, we can achieve whatever goals we may have set to accomplish for the day. The day opens with a meeting between the Moon and Venus in Aries, which can help us to take a risk or find the courage we need to go after what we want in love and money. Venus in Aries reminds us that we're at our most attractive when we're confident about who we are and remain open to adventure.
Towards the second half of the day, the vibe intensifies as chatty Mercury in Aries squares off with powerful Pluto. Words could hurt if we're not careful, but this kind of cosmic combination can also help us with addressing an uncomfortable subject, solving a problem, or seeing the truth about something or someone. Later tonight, the Moon squares off with no-nonsense Saturn in Capricorn, which could dampen the vibe. However, Moon-Saturn combinations are meant to remind us how resilient we are in the face of tough challenges.
By the end of the day the vibe shifts towards a more optimistic place as Mercury in Aries teams up with happy-go-lucky Jupiter in Sagittarius. With Mercury and Jupiter together we're reminded that we can accomplish anything we put our minds to.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and make sure to check out your May 2019 horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Your perception is everything and when it comes to how you see yourself -- are you seeing yourself in the best light? You may need to be more loving towards yourself today and believe in your value. Be more mindful of the thoughts and words you use for self-reference.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
It might be hard for you to look on the bright side today, but this lesson in faith is exactly what you need right now. Take time to tap into your intuition if you're feeling anxious or worried. Trust that what's unfolding for you is for the best. Look to ways to nourish your spirit.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Friends could be a source of support for you today, so reach out to them. On the flip side, however, you may need to confront an ugly truth about someone you know. Try not to stress too much about as this won't necessarily be news to you. Seek out those you better align with.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
A career opportunity could open up for you today, which could provide you with the dose of optimism you need right now where your professional life is concerned. Though you'll need to believe that you're worthy of such an opportunity. Don't allow someone to make you feel incompetent.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You might be feeling inspired today. And while that inspiration is a good thing, take care that you're not embarking on a journey that you'll lose interest in finishing. If you want your vision to come to fruition, you're going to have to put in the effort and discipline needed to do so.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
A certain someone might have you feeling all hot and bothered today, and it seems this is the kind of romantic spark that you've been looking for. Just make sure you're seeing the person as they are and not how you want them to be. You need someone that's truly on your level.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
If a relationship has been on the rocks, you have the opportunity to heal it today, though it may require clearing the air or having an unfiltered discussion with this person. At best, the conversation could help to free up the mental energy you've been giving to the situation.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You love pushing your limits, but today you're called to look to ways that you can bring a better work-life balance to your schedule. Take care of your responsibilities, but be mindful of pushing yourself hard. Know that you don't have to be the hero or be perfect. Take care of you.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Love and romance are in the air now. Though when it comes to potential lovers, make sure you're not selling yourself short or holding out hope for someone that's not in alignment with what you need. At the same time, don't lose hope in love. It's possible to get what you want.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
It's time for you to focus on your own emotional nourishment today and part of doing so may require that you find the courage to ask for the support or care that you need from your loved ones. You don't have to soldier through things alone. Know that vulnerability is a strength.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You have the gift of communication and inspiration today, which essentially means that you can make just about anything happen if you put your mind to it. Though be mindful of psyching yourself out of going after something you want before you even begin. Trust yourself.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You could get the chance to boost your income or receive a job offer. Though on another note, you may need to draw some boundaries or set some limits with others when it comes to protecting your cash or resources. Don't be afraid to speak up for what's yours. You deserve.
