In this August 12 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.
There's a buzz in the air today with the Moon entering curious and outgoing Gemini in the mid-morning. When the Moon is in Gemini, we usually find ourselves in the mood to socialize, entertain new ideas and learn information, or delve into many interests or activities at a time.
Since the Gemini Moon is also being influenced by chatty Mercury in bold and creative Leo (Mercury is the planet in charge of Gemini), today could also bring some creative inspiration, a breakthrough, or some much needed laughs along with it. Though with the Moon in Gemini and Mercury in Leo, we may need to be mindful of listening just as much as we talk, as Leo is a sign that can sometimes be a bit self-centered.
Overall, if there's any pending emails, conversations, calls, errands, or paperwork that we need to catch up on, today's the perfect day to do it.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and make sure to check out your August 2020 monthly horoscope.
