In this horoscope for Memorial Day weekend, Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, the founder of My Life Created, shares the astrological events happening today that will affect every sign. Below, here's a look at how astrology will affect our lives today.
The weekend gets off to a bubbly start thanks to Friday's New Moon in Gemini (1:39 PM EST). Since new moons are always auspicious times to kickoff plans or start something new, this new moon in communicative and curious Gemini is perfect for beginning anything that exposes us something new and pushes us out of old habits and behavior, as well as initiating important calls, conversations, and other connections that could lead to exciting opportunities.
With serious Saturn in Aquarius supporting the new moon, plans we implement now will have lasting, long-term rewards. With the Moon remaining in Gemini until Sunday evening, this is also a good time for delving into creative ideas and projects thanks to the Moon teaming up with multiple planets in Gemini and squaring off with dreamy Neptune in Pisces. Though with Neptune in the mix, we'll have to take care in getting our facts straight and avoiding misinformation or being unrealistic.
By Sunday evening, the Moon moves to tenderhearted Cancer, putting the focus on how we feel and the need for family and community. With the Moon remaining in Cancer through Memorial Day and teaming up with innovative Uranus in Taurus and Mars in dreamy Pisces, we're encouraged to adopt new holiday traditions, get creative with our food, and kick back and relax.
