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 21, 2019.
It's a busy, busy day with the Moon entering hardworking Capricorn in the wee hours of the morning, putting us in the mood to take care of our responsibilities and accomplish our goals. Just moments after the Moon enters Capricorn, the confident Sun leaves earthy Taurus for curious and communicative Gemini.
With the Sun in Gemini and the Moon in Capricorn, we shine best when learning new, yet practical skills, having important conversations, and engaging activities that enable us to build wealth and security. Since Mercury (the planetary ruler of Gemini) will be moving home to Gemini early this morning as well, the emphasis is on communication and information.
Later in the morning, when the Sun and Mercury sync up in Gemini, it's the perfect time for initiating anything that involves writing, media, marketing, or a captivated audience. This Sun-Mercury combo invites us to share our ideas as they could put us in the spotlight. We can look to the Capricorn Moon opposing Mars in Cancer to help us with finding the courage we need to do so.
Meanwhile, the Capricorn Moon also teams up with unconventional Uranus in Taurus, which can help us with thinking outside of the box and moving forward accordingly. Overall, people will be thirsty for new and innovative ideas and approaches. And since the Capricorn Moon will be teaming up with financially savvy Venus in Taurus by the evening, there's also the possibility that these fresh ideas could be money-making ones as well.
