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 May 17, 2018.
The Moon finishes its transit through chatty and curious Gemini today, teaming up with Venus in Gemini by the mid-afternoon. With the Moon and Venus together, we should find ourselves in the mood to connect, chat, and flirt with others. Financial matters may also go well at this time. By the evening, the Moon enters cuddly and cozy Cancer, putting us in the mood to curl up on the couch or spend time with loved ones. Having a good meal might not hurt either. Just after the Moon enters Cancer, it teams up with Uranus in Taurus, which could have us hankering for something new. In this case, it may be a new approach around how we handle our resources. New ideas developed around this time may bring in some extra cash.
