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 8, 2019.
It's all about our emotional nourishment today with the Moon entering tenderhearted Cancer in the early morning. With the Moon in Cancer, we might find ourselves feeling a bit more moody than usual and in need of some tender, loving care. We might also seek out to provide others with some nurturing vibes too.
By mid-morning communicative Mercury teams up with unconventional Uranus in Taurus, which can help us with thinking outside the box or finding an innovative, yet practical solution to a problem. Later in the morning, the Cancer Moon teams up with Mercury and Uranus in Taurus, which can also help us to problem- solve a relationship related matter or to break free of emotional entanglements or habits that no longer serve us, especially as the Cancer Moon squares off with wounded Chiron in Aries by the mid-afternoon.
By late tonight, the vibe mellows out as the Sun in grounded Taurus teams up with dreamy Neptune in Pisces. At the same time, this Sun-Neptune combo can provide us with the creative inspiration we need to turn a dream into something real.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and make sure to check out your May 2019 horoscope.
