In this daily horoscope for May 18, Bustle’s resident astrologer Mecca Woods, founder of My Life Created, shares the astrological events happening today that will affect every zodiac sign. Below, here’s a look at how astrology will affect our lives today.
Things may feel stop and go today, as the moon in energizing Leo faces off with unstable Uranus in Taurus and restrictive Saturn in Aquarius during the first half of the day. As a result, there could be lots of frustration and uncertainty in the air today. In dealing with this kind of a fixed sign fracas, the best way to move forward is slowly.
With the moon in fun-loving and creative Leo, we’re encouraged to stay present in the moment and make the most of the here and now. Over the course of the day, the moon teams up with love planet Venus and chatty Mercury in spontaneous Gemini. Together, this cosmic combo sends help our way by encouraging us to engage in activities, creative projects, and conversations that allow us to anchor ourselves in the moment and take things as they come.
