We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible, the best sex positions for each sign, 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 November 18, 2016.
After the Cancer Moon squares off with Uranus in Aries early this morning we may be left feeling a little jittery or on edge. However by the late morning the edge wears off a little when Mercury (communication) in big thinking Sagittarius squares off with dreamy Neptune in Pisces, which could leave us a bit dazed and confused; making it almost impossible to make clearheaded decisions or get things done. The upside though, is that this energy is perfect for tuning out the noise, tuning into our intuition and indulging our creative side. Add this combination with the Sun in perceptive Scorpio making nice with the sensitve Cancer Moon and we're more likely to get what we need and want by giving some extra care to the more tender parts within each of us. By late tonight when the Moon shifts into exuberant Leo, we'll feel better equipped to take on the world.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.
And remember to tune into Bustle's weekly horoscopes video live on Facebook every other Monday at 4 p.m. ET for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You may be getting mixed signals today when it comes to something you think you should do versus something you feel you should do. Though before you get flustered or discouraged, know that the answer may have been there all along. In other words, it's time to go in a new direction.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Today may be a good time to talk with a financial advisor or go over your financial plans to determine how you can best pool your resources to help you make a dream real. If you're in need of funding for a long term project, you may want to research loan, grant, or crowdfunding options.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Could the idea of being with someone actually be more romantic and engaging than actually being with this person? This may be a question that you'll need to ask yourself today. Know that a shallow fix won't fulfill the deeper emotional needs you have now. Quality is attractive too.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
You may find yourself bored to tears with work today or may not want to be bothered with your running list of things to do. Instead of completely shirking your responsibilities, try working from home, taking your “office” outside or adding a little variety to your day. Make it interesting.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You may be getting a vibe about someone you’ve been flirting with that you can’t quite put your finger on and that may leave you feeling uneasy. While this person may seem fun and intelligent at the outset, could it all just be smoke and mirrors? Hint: Now’s not the time for entertaining bad habits.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You could find yourself dwelling on the past today where it pertains to a current relationship or the prospect of one which could leave you feeling a bit sensitive and nostalgic. However, before you go walking down memory lane, know that you have the power to create the love life you want right here and now.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
No matter how hard you try today, it may feel like anything you try to do just can’t seem to get done. Though before you get stressed out and frantic, try a few grounding exercises to help you make it through the day (like sitting quietly and deeply breathing) and carve out ample down-time for later.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You may need to have a conversation with someone today where it pertains to your money and your talent. With your creative genius practically shooting through the roof now, you have to make sure that whatever genius you put to work for others is rightfully rewarded. Don’t give up the goods for free.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Are you thinking with your head or your heart today? You might find that there’s a bit of a battle going on between the two. Though you don’t need to split yourself down the middle in order to find compromise. Now is the time to stick to your standards and your values. Don’t lower the bar.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You may not be seeing a situation clearly now which means today won’t be the best time for making any big decisions. However, instead of stressing out over this thing you can’t seem figure out, recognize that it’s OK not to have a fix for everything all the time. What’s meant for you will come.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
When it comes to you and your friends’ shared values, know that you don’t always need to be on the same page, especially if your goals for the future look very different from their goals. You’ve never been the one to keep up with trends and there’s no use in starting now. You know what’s right for you.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20)
There could be a chance that you feel misunderstood today as how others view you and how you view yourself may be two very different things. However, instead of trying to cater to their vision of you, surround yourself with people who support you and the person you’re becoming.
