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 9, 2019.
With the Moon in tenderhearted Cancer, emotions may be heightened today. As such, we're reminded to pay attention to what we feel and to do what we can to nurture ourselves and others. Luckily, the day opens with a meeting between the Moon in Cancer and compassionate Neptune in Pisces, as well as a meeting between fiery Venus in Aries and happy-go-lucky Jupiter in Sagittarius which should give us an upbeat start to the day.
By the late afternoon, the energy gets a bit dicey as Venus in Aries squares off with power-hungry Pluto in Capricorn, which could have us feeling torn between what we want and willing to push the envelope when it comes to getting it. Though when the Moon opposes serious Saturn and powerful Pluto in Capricorn by the evening, and then goes on to square off with Venus in Aries by late tonight, we'll be pushed to get crystal clear about what we want and what we don't.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and make sure to check out your May 2019 horoscope.
