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, 2019.
It's a high-energy kind of day with the Moon moving into friendly, yet freedom-loving Aquarius by the mid-afternoon. With the Moon in Aquarius we might find ourselves looking to connect with others while also engaging activities that fuel our independence and a desire to break away from the norm. Later in the afternoon, communicative Mercury in Gemini teams up with wounded Chiron in Aries, which can help us with having conversations that heal and empower.
By the early evening, the Aquarius Moon teams up with the Sun in Gemini which should put us in a light, sociable mood. Under this cosmic combination we find that we feel most confident and shine the brightest when sharing our thoughts and ideas with others and engaging activities that feed our minds.
Later in the evening the energy gets a bit dicey as Mars in Cancer squares off with Chiron in Aries, which could take the wind out of our sails. The key to handling this energy is to avoid being hypersensitive but to establish boundaries where needed.
By the late night the Aquarius Moon squares off with unconventional Uranus in Taurus, which could have us feeling extra restless. The best way to utilize this cosmic energy is to channel it into anything that requires a fresh, innovative approach.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and make sure to check out your May 2019 monthly horoscope.
