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, 2018.
This might be a bit of a low-key day with the Moon in cozy Cancer. As such, we may be less in the mood to socialize and be around others (unless they're close friends or family) and more in the mood to cocoon ourselves away and sleep in. Mercury in practical Taurus and no-nonsense Saturn in Capricorn will also be on hand today, helping us to dig in and focus on the tasks at hand, which can make for a fairly productive day. Later in the evening, the Cancer Moon teams up with compassionate Neptune in Pisces, followed by a meeting between the Moon and Jupiter in Scorpio. As a result, this cosmic combo could have us feeling more emotionally sensitive than usual. The best way to handle this energy to by performing an act of kindness or spending time with those that we love most. This Moon-Neptune combination my also heighten our intuitive powers too, so it's best we slow down and pay attention to any hunches or messages that come through.
