Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, founder of My Life Created, shares every zodiac sign's daily horoscope for today, May 18, 2022.
Although the moon enters hardworking Capricorn early this morning, active Mars teams up with hazy Neptune in dreamy Pisces today. As a result, you might not feel as motivated as you might like. On the plus side, this mashup of planets in Capricorn and Pisces can be useful for bringing a creative idea or vision to life. However, with brainy Mercury still retrograde, you might find that this cosmic combo is more helpful for triggering a creative spark or brainstorming the next steps as opposed to officially moving forward with a new plan or project.
Later in the morning, the Capricorn moon squares off with over-the-top Jupiter in Aries. While this planetary pair can give you a huge dose of can-do energy, you’ll have to be careful that you don’t end up biting off more than you can chew. The vibe of today’s Mars-Neptune aspect encourages moving at a manageable pace.
Too, if you’re feeling stressed and overworked, this Mars-Neptune in Pisces combo also gives the nudge you need to get more rest or take a needed timeout. Since Pisces is a water sign, you might find that the element of water can help to soothe and restore you, whether it’s a bath or a swim, or staying hydrated and moisturized.

You enjoy keeping busy but for today, consider if keeping busy is just distracting you from taking the time you need to be still and regroup. Be mindful of your bandwidth right now.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Taurus (April 20-May 20)
