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, 2017.
The Moon remains in slow and steady Taurus today, kicking the morning off with a meeting between the Moon and Pluto in Capricorn, which can be helpful in finding the determination and drive we need to accomplish our goals. By the afternoon, the Taurus Moon squares off with Mercury in Leo, which could trigger delays or disagreements as well as a battle between head and heart. The best way to handle this energy is to take our time and chew things over as the solution make take time to reveal itself. However, one of the brightest moments of the day happens when Venus in Gemini syncs up with Jupiter in Libra in the late afternoon; an auspicious time for love, money, and taking a risk on something big. Towards the end of the night, the Moon meets up with the Sun Cancer which should create a cozy cap to the evening.
