In this August 11 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 Moon continues her stay in pleasure-seeking Taurus today, bringing some soothing, earthy vibes with her. With the Moon in Taurus meeting up with bountiful Jupiter in Capricorn by the late morning, it's the perfect time for doing anything that's relaxing, comforting, or feels good to the body. Because this earthy energy is also prime for productivity, this Moon-Jupiter connection could be a boost for our professional lives or in getting things done.
However, the day won't come without a hiccup or two as the Sun in proud Leo squares off with determined Taurus Moon, as such we may have to watch for being too stubborn or overbearing in getting what we want or expressing ourselves to others today. However, this Sun-Moon combo encourages us to use art and creativity to relieve any tension we may be feeling. Thankfully, the Moon also teams up with dreamy Neptune in Pisces in the late afternoon, and invites us to slow down, catch our breath, an go with the flow as best as we can.
By the evening, the Moon in Taurus teams up with powerful Pluto in Capricorn, which can give us the determination and focus needed to move past a difficult problem or task.
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 Taurus (April 20-May 20)
