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 23, 2017.
Today should feel a lot calmer than yesterday and that's because the Moon leaves high-intensity Aries for laid back Taurus this morning. With the Moon in Taurus, we should find ourselves in the mood for a comfortable couch, good food, a good view, and even better company. Still, Taurus is no slouch, which means we'll still have enough earthy energy in the air to stay focused and productive. Easy does it though — no need to rush through anything. By late tonight, the Moon syncs up with Mercury in Taurus, which could be a great combination for heart-to-heart talks and genuine connections. Creatives should be happy as well as this Moon-Mercury aspect can also be good for fleshing out ideas.
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)
Your money is on your mind today as you may be thinking heavily about your financial security. If cash has been an issue, this is a good time to go over your budget to see where you may be able to save a few extra dollars. A job search at this time could be fruitful. Make sure you're not shortchanging yourself.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Pay attention to how you feel today, because your body is trying to tell you something. If you feel moody, rundown, overwhelmed etc. it often means you need to ramp up your self-care. If something's on your mind, it may be time to speak up about it or have yourself a good venting session. Take care of you.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Consider today a rest day, especially when it comes to work and the hustle and bustle of your everyday. Even if you can't take a full day off, at least take a an hour or two to yourself, as you need the solitude and downtime to recharge. Your thoughts/dreams are potent. Get quiet enough to listen.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
A friend could offer you some wise counsel today, especially if there's been something on your mind that's been hard to think through. Get on the phone (or laptop) and connect with those around you. You never know what gems you might discover by having a conversation. A breakthrough is possible.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
All eyes are on you today when it comes to your career, which means you could land the recognition or praise that you're craving right now. Even if that praise comes a bit late, don't feel a way about patting yourself on the back. Celebrate your victories big and small. Know that you are making an impact.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You might find yourself ready to pack your bags today and catch the next flight out of town. That's because you're being pushed to go out and experience the world beyond your personal borders. If a long-distance trip isn't in your immediate future, you can still find ways to feed your mind.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Your finances are the focus today as you may find yourself thinking about debt and ways that you can reduce yours. This could be a good time to work with a financial adviser or a free debt management organization to get on track. You may also find yourself ready interested in investing as a means of security.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
The focus is on your partner today which could spark a discussion about your relationship. This could be the opportunity to finally put an issue to rest so make sure you're open to actively listening and not just getting past the problem. If single, your chances of meeting someone new increase.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Expect to be busy today as you check off the tasks on your to-do list. While it can be easy to get sidetracked and put things off for another day, your best bet is to take care of it now before things pile up and overwhelm you. Health wise, make sure you're eating well so your body can keep up with you.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
It's all about fun today, so make sure that whatever you do, you give yourself some time to let loose and turn up. What kinds of new and interesting things can you get into today, with new and interesting people. A concert, game night, or an after work happy hour could also hit the spot. Enjoy yourself!
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You may find yourself in a cocooning kind of mood today, which might not necessarily be a bad thing. Time spent at home or with family could give your batteries the juice they need. If your day is pretty busy, still try to make some quiet time for yourself to get centered. Memories could be comforting.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You could feel inspired to pursue one of your creative ideas today, which could end up treating the world to your unique voice or point of view. On another note, today could also be helpful when it comes to brainstorming ideas to make yourself more marketable. How can you build your niche?
