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 22, 2017.
Hopefully we've gotten our rest this past weekend because today is going to be a pretty busy one with the Moon still in fiery Aries. The day starts off with an opposition between the Moon and Jupiter in Libra, which could have us feeling like we're ready to take on the world, literally. This may not be a bad thing as the meeting between the Aries Moon and Venus in Aries will require confidence, courage, and passion to get what we want, especially when it comes to money and relationships. By the afternoon, things may get a bit intense as the Moon syncs up with Pluto in Capricorn, which could have us a bit power-hungry if we're not careful.
Later in the evening, the Aries Moon meets up with Mars in Gemini. Thanks to this combination we may have a hard time sitting still or being quiet, which means we should use all of this extra energy on doing something worthwhile.
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)
You have the gift of gab today, which should make you a hit among new friends and old friends alike. Use this power to manifest opportunities by speaking them into existence, singing your own praises, and talking with others. Love could also be a treat when you simply be yourself.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Take a time-out today so you can catch up to yourself. If you're feeling a bit sluggish or withdrawn today, don't be too surprised. Right now you're supposed to be taking it easy and getting in some much needed self-care. If you feel like spending a little money, just try not to go overboard.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
When it comes to getting what you want today, you get by with help from your friends. Look to spending time networking and establishing connections with others, especially when it comes to your work or field of choice. The people you chat with could help you to find a new opportunity.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You should feel like you're on track when it comes to your career today which means you could find yourself entertaining offers for a new job or position, especially if where you currently are has left much to be desired. If you are making plans to leave your job, keep plans to yourself for now.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You've got some big dreams and a whole lot of energy to put behind them, though when it comes to today, you may want to be mindful of how much you take on. It's quality versus quantity right now when it comes to your work-life balance which means moving forward with intent and purpose.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You could receive a financial boom today which could come in the form of a new gig or a commission. This extra cash could also be helpful in reducing or paying off the debt in your life which could feel like a weight being lifted. In matters of the heart, intimacy doesn't need to be a roller coaster ride.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Relationships are the focus today as you and your love find yourselves working to deepen and enjoy your bond. Single Libras could meet someone with potential today, so stay open and receptive. Above all, love works now when you agree to release the past and move forward. Let go.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You may need to take a stand for yourself at work today, namely when it comes to someone that may be undermining your work or bringing a counter productive element to the environment. Keep your argument tactful while standing your ground. Take charge from an empowered place.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You may be feeling a bit disappointed today because a financial situation may be getting in the way of your plans. However, your partner could be a source of assistance. Meanwhile, single Sagittarians may be feeling the heat when it comes to their love lives now. No need to force anything though.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You have people around you that want to help but you may be too worried about appearing helpless or weak to accept the support. Instead of trying to keep up appearances, recognize that it's OK to be human and to need the love and nurturing of others. This is how you maintain your foundation.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You may find yourself feeling extra creative and upbeat today which could give you the steam you need to follow through on one of your brilliant ideas. If you have something that you'd like to draw an audience towards, the stars can also be of help. Just try not to let the fear or self-doubt get in the way.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You may feel like things have been barely paying off with the amount of time, energy, and resources you've been putting in to see your goals through. However, it's important to give yourself credit where it's due and to also realize there's no one way to get what you want. Get creative.
