So as you see in the picture I have a guideline on each object. Now what I want to do, is align the left object and guideline exactly on top of the right object's guideline. Does that make sense? But whenever I use Illustrator's horizontal align it obviously is taking the whole shape into account rather than the specific anchor points I want (which is where the guidelines are). So I basically I want the guidelines on top of one another when I move the shapes toward one another. So how do I easily do that since Illustrator doesn't snap easily and know when two guidelines are touching one another?
The Reflect tool is what you will want to use.
Find the point of reflection, your cursor should snap between guides and paths, and should highlight the intersect as shown in the image below.
Select the shape, then click the Reflect tool using (O) or by click + holding the Rotate tool to reveal the Reflect tool. Using the Reflect tool, click once to set the anchor point and then Alt + drag (alt modifier copies shape) your shape to where it should be.
By Alt-Clicking the anchor point, you can get a dialog box to type in the transformation you want (Copy Vertical mirror) and proceed from there.
You may want to check your preferences for your Smart Guides. Everything on that menu can pretty much be checked.
