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 April 18, 2018.
The energy of the day kicks off with a blast as the Moon enters busy and chatty Gemini while the Sun in Aries teams up with with rebellious and rowdy Uranus in Aries. If things have felt like they've been moving at a snail's pace, today's vibes will definitely change that as the Gemini-Aries mix of energy encourages us to switch things up and try a fresh approach. By the late afternoon the Gemini Moon teams up with Mercury in Aries, which could be good for sparking new ideas, conversations, and talking about what we feel. Overall, we can expect our brains (and our mouths) to be working overtime, but the sparks of insight and inspiration should be welcoming.
By late tonight, Saturn in Capricorn steps into the mix to remind us how important it is to do things for ourselves that are calming. The buzz in the air may feel jarring for some of us, so we'll need to make sure we have things that help us to feel physically grounded. One way we can do this is by focusing one thing at a time instead of trying to multitask.
