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 horoscope for May 18-19, 2019.
This weekend cranks up the intensity with Saturday's Full Moon in all-or-nothing Scorpio pushing us to confront our fears, shadows, and uncomfortable truths around intimacy. Though for some of us this Scorpio Moon could help us with sealing the deal on a romantic relationship and deepening the bond that we share with a lover or partner. For others, this full moon could help us with leaving behind a relationship or relationship pattern in a way that helps us to heal and find true love.
With the Scorpio Moon syncing up with no-nonsense Saturn and transformative Pluto in Capricorn as well as practical Mercury in Taurus, we could find both the insight and the solutions we need to make the necessary changes in our love lives, which may call for honest conversations. With love planet Venus syncing up with unconventional Uranus in Taurus, a breakthrough or break from the past is possible. Though we'll need to take a different approach than what we're used to.
By Saturday night, the Moon enters happy-go-lucky Sagittarius, giving us a chance to come out of the shadows and the emotional depths in favor for some lighthearted fun. Though the wisdom we'll have accumulated from exploring the emotional depths will be invaluable.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign this weekend, and be sure to check out your May 2019 monthly horoscope.
