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 September 17, 2018.
It's all about work, work, work, work, work today (cue Rihanna). Thanks to the Moon entering responsible Capricorn early this morning. Though with all of the work that we may be putting in to achieve our goals, we're reminded not to be too hard on ourselves, especially as the Moon squares off with wounded Chiron in Aries.
This cosmic combination could have us feeling as though we're not doing enough, yet it's important for us to make note of the progress we're making along the way. Later in the morning, the Capricorn Moon teams up with unconventional Uranus in Taurus, which can be helpful for initiating new projects or anything that requires an approach that's different from the usual.
Come mid-day, the Moon teams up with Saturn in Capricorn, reminding us of the importance of practical, patient, and self-reliant. Although by the evening, when the Moon teams up with Venus in Scorpio, we're reminded that relating and connecting with others is important too. We just need to be selective about who we choose to connect with as they should be worth the time and energy.
