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 March 22, 2018.
The Moon moves into curious and communicative Gemini early this morning, which should have us in a rather chatty and busy mood. However, with Mercury going retrograde today, we're advised to proceed with caution. Having the planet of communication moving backwards in an impatient, blunt, and fast-moving sign like Aries means that we'll need to think before we speak or share information, as well as slowing down long enough to make sure that anything we do involving communication or travel is done right. For travel, specifically, Mercury retrograde is always a good time to leave some extra room to get to our destinations as scheduled. Plus, with the Gemini Moon not exactly seeing eye-to-eye with Mars and Saturn in cautious Capricorn, the need is not for speed but for patience.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today and check out your March 2018 monthly horoscope.
