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 5, 2017.
It should be a rather productive day as the Moon remains in disciplined and detailed Virgo. At the start of the day, the analytical Virgo Moon has a meeting with dreamy Neptune in Pisces, which could be useful for figuring out how to turn a wish into something real. By mid-morning, the Moon syncs up with the Sun in grounded Taurus, often helpful in getting both what we want and what we need when it comes to work, stability, finances, and relationships. By the late afternoon, the Moon meets up with powerful Pluto in Capricorn, possibly giving us the stamina and intuitive insight we need to overcome obstacles.
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. ET for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
It's time to get on your grind. You could make some serious headway on the job today by staying busy and remaining focused. If you have anything on your plate that seems particularly challenging — today would be a good day to tackle it. If you're job searching, you could manifest something good.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You should be feeling quite good today as you have the power to accomplish just about anything you set out to do. If you're feeling particularly inspired, go with that feeling, as right now you should be doing anything that feeds your sense of passion and need for growth. Don't play yourself small. Go big.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Today may be a more low-key day for you as you tend to your private, softer side. This could be a great time for talking with a therapist, a trusted friend, or engaging in some meditative work. You may find an inner reserve of strength and calm that you may not have felt in a while. Your intuition is rock solid.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Today should be a pretty good day to connect and share with others. If you have anything to sell, promote, launch, or draw an audience to — especially online, this is a good day for spreading the word. People will be wanting to know more about you and what you do. Be genuine in your approach.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You could make leaps and bounds when it comes to your career as people are looking to you for your expertise and skill. You could get the confirmation you need to go for a promotion or a leadership role, while those of you that freelance or are self-employed could have success raising your rates.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
The spotlight remains on you as you're encouraged to throw yourself into something (or someone) you're passionately mad about or dare yourself to try something exciting that you've never done before. Overall, there's a big, wide world out there waiting for you to take part in it. Don't waste the opportunity.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
More than likely, you'll still be in the mood to turn down as you focus on your self-care and emotional health. If it's possible to take a mental health day from your job or create some time to relax, reflect, and release — make sure to do it today as your spirit needs it. Use the time to clear out the subconscious trash.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Relationships are your focus today as you may get the opportunity to join forces or collaborate with someone that can help you further your mission or get to where you want to be. If you have information you'd like to share with others or you could use a little support — reach out and connect with folks.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Improvement is the theme for you today — whether it comes to work, finances, health, or your personal life. How can you do things better? What are some habits you have that you need to break? Are you taking on unnecessary obligations? Take your time today and listen closely for the answers.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Fun, romance, adventure? Where do we sign you up? You've been working so hard, Cap — it's time you enjoyed yourself a little without feeling guilty about it. Who knows? During your adventurous pursuits, you may finally remember how interesting and amazing you are. Maybe it's time to let the world know.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Things are starting to come together, especially when you take time to slow down and recognize how far you've come. Even though things might not be perfect now, that doesn't mean you're not making progress. Be gentle to yourself.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
If you need to schedule a talk, conversation, or meeting — try to do so for today because people will be very open and receptive to what you have to say. Even if what you're saying is by email, social media, or text; you'll still have folks' attention. All you need to do is be prepared and be ready to wow 'em.
