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 Sept. 18, 2017.
Today may feel like we're moving at warp-speed and that's because the Moon shifts into Virgo, the sign of productivity, early in the AM. Under a Virgo Moon we'll find that we're most concerned with getting things done as quickly and efficiently as possible. By the time the Moon meets up with feisty Mars (also in Virgo) by the late afternoon, the need to knock the tasks off our to-do lists goes into overdrive. Though if we forget to pace ourselves accordingly, it'll be easy to lose our cool. The best thing to do is to stay hydrated and to try not to sweat the small stuff.
When the Moon syncs up with chatty Mercury in Virgo by the evening, we should find ourselves in the mood to share our thoughts and feelings with others. Anything involving writing, research, organization, and improvement will be at the top of the list too, especially as we work to tie up loose ends and toss what we no longer need in preparation for Wednesday's New Moon in Virgo. Towards the end of the night, the Virgo Moon opposes Neptune in Pisces, which is best used for anything that requires imagination.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.

Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
Take a chill pill, Libra. Today's one of those days where rest and relaxation is paramount to anything else you may have going on. That's because you need space to feel the feels and clear out all of the emotional and mental gunk you've accumulated. Journaling, meditation, or talking to someone you trust helps.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
A friend or group of friends could come calling on you for help, which may give you the opportunity to step up and take the lead. Though you may need to be careful of giving too much of your time and energy to those that don't respect your boundaries or your schedule. Give back to someone in need.

Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
What inspires you, Cap? This might be the question of the day as you're called to expand your experiences and worldview. As a result, you could find yourself booking a last minute trip or class to stoke those embers in your heart. Meanwhile, sometimes it's OK to agree to disagree. You don't need to be right.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
Your finances come under scrutiny today as you may find yourself tempted to splurge or make an impulse buy. Don't, as it could put you in a crunch. Instead, look to ways you can reduce or pay off your debts faster. In matters of the heart, are you moving a little too quickly with someone new? Slow down.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
A partnership or team collaboration could be the thing you need to get a project or personal vision off the ground. Networking could put the right person in front of you. Meanwhile, an argument or disagreement between you and someone you're close to could come up. Get ready to clear the air.
