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 18, 2017.
The day starts off with a bang as the Aquarius Moon meets up with Mars in Gemini, which is the kind of cosmic combination could have us running on lots of adrenaline and little sleep. For those of us that may not necessarily be morning people, this might work better than coffee. By the late afternoon, the Moon meets up with rebellious Uranus in Aries, which can help us to break free of old, monotonous routines and perceptions. If you find yourself having a hard time staying focused or grounded with all of this electricity in the air, the meeting between the Aquarius Moon and serious Saturn in Sagittarius could help to temper things a bit.
If we're finding it hard to make the necessary changes that the Moon-Uranus meeting could bring up, then the connection between the Moon and Saturn could help us to dig in and get the work done.
By the end of the night, the Moon drifts into dreamy Pisces, which could help us to rest easy after a high-voltage day.
By the late evening, this theme around what to fix and what to leave the same comes up again when the Moon squares off with the Taurus Sun. The best way to harness this difficult aspect is to keep whatever changes or updates we make in our lives focused on improving our quality of living. By the end of the night, the Moon drifts into dreamy Pisces, which could help us to rest easy after a high-voltage day.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You're an innovator — that's true — but doing things in an ad hoc or unconventional way just for the sake of it may be making things harder on you than necessary. Instead, try to work smarter not harder by sticking to what works for you and recognizing you're already bringing a unique take. You don't have to force it.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You may be craving recognition from others for your work or talent or looking for your supervisor to sing your praises today but even if that recognition doesn't come the way you want, know that you will always be your best fan. Forget being humble right now. Don't be afraid to toot your own horn.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Your horizons are looking bright today as things begin to click into place in way that gets you closer to fulfilling a vision for yourself. Your friends, partner, or those within your network could provide you with the support and resources you need to get things moving. Don't allow fear to block you.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Whether you're in business for yourself or working for someone else, you do your best when you bring your authentic self to the table. People appreciate your thoughtfulness and genuine attitude, so there's no sense in trying to live up to someone else's standard or example. Who you are speaks volumes.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Love and partnership are highlighted today as you and your other half could find fun and excitement with a last-minute trip or interactive date. Meanwhile for other Leos, a love affair may be shifting into more committed territory. In your professional life, working with a coach or mentor could be helpful.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Financial independence could be possible when you invest in you and your future. Part of this means making changes where necessary when it comes to your job and what you do for a living. Improving your marketable skills, taking on a second gig, or moving on to a better position could offer options.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Romance continues to sparkle for you today, which should have you in a flirty and friendly mood. If single, you could meet a fun, interesting stranger that could help you to shake the dust from your feet. Meanwhile, couples succeed by making spontaneity a regular habit. Creatively, don't sell yourself short.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You could be feeling like you're long overdue for a change of environment or scenery when it comes to your home or office space. This could set the wheels in motion for you actually considering a move or a new job. Not only should you be where you're stable but you should also be where you're happy.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You have the power to bring your own unique voice and point of view to the world which makes you a highly creative and visionary person. But it's important that you stick to your integrity though and actually do the work and research it takes to back up what you know/do. Don't bother cutting corners.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Though your finances and sense of security seem to be fluctuating right now — one minute they're up the next minute they're down — it doesn't mean you'll be in this space for long. While things are changing around you know that you don't have to let the uncertainty unsettle you. Find your spiritual anchor.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Some friendships or close relationships could be rattled today as you may be wondering if some of the people you used to be tight with still fit into your life. While you're often a friend to many, it's time to take stock of those who are truly a friend to you. Don't be surprised though, evolving is a thing.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You could have an "a-ha" moment of sorts when it comes to your values, self-worth, or money. In short, you may come to realize that you deserve to get as much back as you put in; which at first may have seemed like you were asking for too much. However, you're only asking that you get your fair share.
