We are constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, either which signs are most compatible or how each sign deals with conflicts in relationships. That's why Bustle hired Mecca Woods, an astrologer at MyLifeCreated.com, based in New York, to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives every day. Today's topic: Your daily horoscope for May 1, 2019.
The Moon enters Aries burning and passionate in the early morning, putting the emphasis on experiences, relationships and themes that focus on fearlessness, ambition and adventure. Although both talk to Mercury in Aries and Mars in Gemini colliding with Saturn earlier in the day, we are called to look before we jump.
At the same time, when it comes to communication, today's cosmic climate can lead us to conversations that we have been avoiding or facing an uncomfortable truth. Either way, clearing the air (shortly before New Moon on Friday in Taurus) may be just what we need to feel good and move on. In addition, with the Aries Moon synchronizing with Chiron wounded in Aries in the middle of the afternoon, finding the emotional courage we need to make a difficult choice or decision could pave the way for healing.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today and make sure to check out your horoscope for May 2019.
Aries (March 21 to April 19)
It may seem that your thoughts and words are not coming the way you want, which could make you doubt yourself. Overall, you can be extra self-critical today. As such, try to be gentle with yourself. Acknowledge that failure is just an opportunity to learn something new.
Taurus (April 20 to May 20)
It can be hard for you to keep the faith today as it may seem like things are not coming out the way you want them to. Although progress seems to be not happening, know that there is action going on behind the scenes that are moving things into place. Trust that what is meant for you will find you.
Twins (May 21 to June 20)
You may need to talk to a friend today, especially if that person is behaving in a way that has made your relationship unbalanced. While you value your ability to connect and make friends with many, it's time to make sure that you are getting the same love you give.
Cancer (June 21-July 22)
A professional relationship can be a bit tricky nowadays but it can provide the impetus you need to establish better boundaries in a professional relationship or start your exit strategy. Know that you are worthy and capable of success. Do not let anyone convince you otherwise.
Leo (July 23 to August 22)
You may have a great idea that you want to bring to fruition, but the amount of work it can require can make you feel like you will never make it happen. Now is the time for you to challenge (and release) self-limiting beliefs, since they are holding you back. Have faith in yourself.
Virgin (August 23 to September 22)
You may be pushed to face something you feared or avoided, especially when it comes to matters of the heart. At the same time, you are being called to break away from unhealthy habits in terms of intimacy and vulnerability. You can choose to respond to old wounds differently.
Libra (September 23 to October 22)
One could say something to you today that could trigger an old desire or feelings of insecurity. At best, know that just because someone says something does not mean it's true or valid. As such, you may need to speak for yourself today. Meanwhile, go where you are loved.
Scorpio (October 23 to November 21)
You may be obsessed with a project at work or with a situation in your personal life. And while you may be struggling to make things perfect, trust that as long as you do your best, that's all anyone can ask of you. No need to put extra pressure on yourself. Focus on your well-being.
Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21)
In matters of the heart, you may need to tell a romantic interest where you are today, especially if their behavior has an impact on your self-esteem. Keep yourself accountable for your own happiness. On another note, it may be necessary to evaluate where you underestimated your talents.
Capricorn (December 22 to January 19)
You may need to talk uncomfortably with a family member or someone you live with today, and part of the conversation may be a matter of establishing healthier boundaries. Talking about things could help heal the situation or at least bring resolution.
Aquarius (January 20 to February 18)
Your thoughts can be quite heavy today, although you are afraid to talk about what is bothering you. The best thing you can do for yourself today is to admit your feelings and talk to someone you trust. You do not have to suffer in silence. Reach out and connect with others.
Fish (February 19 to March 20)
It may seem like something you were looking forward to, especially when it comes to a financial issue, it's not happening the way you thought it. While the situation is temporary, consider that it may be asking you to examine where you are underestimating your worth. Demand more.
