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, to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each day. Today's topic: your daily horoscope for May 2, 2018.

The Moon remains in optimistic Sagittarius today, which should have us in good spirits. There may be a slight hiccup in the morning when the Sagittarius Moon gets into it a bit with the Sun in Taurus. We may feel underappreciated in some way or as though we aren't able to get what we need but Taurus season reminds us to know our worth and not to settle while the Moon in Sagittarius reminds us that another opportunity is always around the corner.

By the evening, the Moon teams up with fiery Mercury in Aries, which could make for some very impassioned conversations and heated arguments. Though if we have something to say or share with others, this combination will make sure that we get heard. By late tonight, the vibe calms down considerably as the Moon squares off with dreamy Neptune, which could help us to decompress and rest. We might not be thinking clearly at this time so it may be best to hold off important decisions for tomorrow.

Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and check out your May 2018 monthly horoscope.
