In this Aug. 10 daily horoscope, Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, the founder of My Life Created, shares the astrological events happening today that will affect every sign. Below, here's a look at how astrology will affect our lives today.
The day gets off to a jumpy start with chatty Mercury in over-the-top Leo squaring off with unconventional Uranus in Taurus. As a result, we can be on the receiving end of some jarring information, or we might find our words having a surprising or unintended effect. Add in some restless energy, too, thanks to the moon in Taurus conjoining Uranus and squaring off with Mercury by later this eve, and we're all called to use some extra precaution today when it comes to what we say or what we do.
On a more positive note, today's astro-weather could lead to some creative breakthroughs or innovative ideas. As long as we're willing to roll with the unexpected and step away from the familiar or the norm for a bit, we could do some exciting things. For those of us that work in a creative field, today could be especially productive.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and make sure to check out your August 2020 monthly horoscope.

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
You could have a lot of restless energy today, but if you want to avoid spinning your wheels, it's best that you try and apply it to a worthwhile project. A creative breakthrough could be possible.
