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 7, 2019.
It may feel like a wonky kind of a day with the current cosmic weather. The day kicks off with the Moon in curious Gemini squaring off with dreamy Neptune, which could cause some major confusion and fog today. While this Moon-Neptune combo can be good for creative thinking and projects, it's not so good for making important decisions or being able to see things with clarity.
Later in the morning, fiery Venus in Aries squares off with serious Saturn in Capricorn, which could put a damper on relationships and financial matters. The best way to handle this difficult cosmic combo is by using it to help us address issues or challenges around love and money head on. Boundaries may be called for today.
By the afternoon, the Gemini Moon teams up with Venus in Aries, helping us to smooth over any rough patches in our relationships or start fresh if needed. This cosmic combo can also help us with meeting and connecting with new people, as well as making money from our ideas. By the late evening, the Gemini Moon opposes happy-go-lucky Jupiter and and teams up with aggressive Mars in Gemini, increasing our sense of adventure and curiosity. The evening is perfect for starting something new.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and make sure to check out your May 2019 horoscope.
