Here's Your Horoscope For Today


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, to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each day. Today's topic: your daily horoscope for May 9, 2018.

After a few high-energy days, the Moon is now in dreamy Pisces, bringing us some calm and relaxing vibes. Since Pisces is a sign that is associated with intuition and emotions, we might find that both are heightened today. As such, a Pisces Moon is always a good time to unplug from the hustle and bustle of the day or spend time in the company of those that are nearest and dearest to us. We might also feel extra creative under a Pisces Moon too, which means that today can be perfect for dreaming up ideas and immersing ourselves into mediums like music, film, photography, etc. By the late afternoon, the Moon teams up with serious Saturn in Capricorn, which can help temper some of the emotion we may be feeling. This Moon-Saturn combo can also be helpful in turning a dream into something real.

Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and check out your May 2018 monthly horoscope.

When it comes to fulfilling your hopes and wishes today, you've got the eye of the tiger. As such, there may be very little you're willing to let get in your way. If you need backup though, you've got people in your corner that's more than willing to pitch in where needed. Doors are opening for you.
