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 daily horoscope for July 18, 2019.
The Moon remains in unconventional and unpredictable Aquarius, putting the focus on a new start and a fresh approach. Though the day starts out with quite a bang as the Aquarius Moon opposes Mars in bold Leo. While this kind of cosmic combo can trigger arguments, on a more positive note, this combination can be good for anything that requires some courage or determination on our behalf.
By the late morning, we might find ourselves feeling much lighter than we have in recent days as the Moon teams up with happy-go-lucky Jupiter in Sagittarius. Later in the afternoon, the vibe continues to mellow out as love planet Venus in tenderhearted Cancer meets up with Neptune in compassionate Pisces, which pushes us to connect with those that emotionally nourish us as well as seek out experiences and activities that feed the soul.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and make sure to check out your July 2019 monthly horoscope.
