Unable to write an SOQL Query for the junction Object?

Hi everyone. I have a junction object called Project Mapping which has a lookup to a custom object- 'Project' and a lookup to the Standard Object- 'User'. The junction object is the link between the two objects which is mapping the objects.  

My objective is to create a SOQL query to retrieve the Projects related to a particular user, specifically the user who has signed in. 

I am struggling a lot to create that query. Can someone please help me with that query?

If you just need project details, you may try the below one and let me know

     Project, Project__r.Project_Name, Project__r.StartDate -- May add whatever fields you need from Project object.
    User =:UserInfo.getUserId()  --Assume User field in Project Mapping junction object is the User ID let me know if not .

You need to use a semi-join in your SOQL query.  The query below returns all projects that are looked up to by junctions that look up to the current user.

List<Project__c> projects =
[   SELECT  Id, // other fields here
    FROM    Project__c
    WHERE   Id IN (SELECT Project__c FROM Project_Mapping__c WHERE User__c = :UserInfo.getUserId())

Namit,  Did any of these answers solve your problem?  If so, please mark the questions as "Solved".  Many others will have a question similar to yours, as junction objects are a fundamental concept.  Thanks!
