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 16, 2018.
With the Moon in hardworking and detailed-oriented Virgo, we're in the mood to get organized and get to work. The morning kicks off with a meeting between the Virgo Moon and Jupiter in Scorpio, which should lend a helpful and supportive vibe to the day. By late afternoon, the Moon goes on to oppose dreamy Neptune in Pisces, which is not so great for making important decisions but awesome for doing any kind of activity that requires a creative approach. By late tonight, the Virgo Moon ends the day with a meeting with transformative Pluto in Capricorn, which can be helpful in breaking a unhealthy habit or showing us what we need to purge from our lives.
