In this August 19 daily horoscope, Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, the founder of My Life Created, shares the astrological events happening today that will affect every zodiac sign. Below, here's a look at how astrology will affect our lives today.
If yesterday's new moon gave us the green light to put our plans into motion, having both the Moon and analytical Mercury moving to detail-oriented Virgo today will help us to see those plans through.
The Moon kicks things off, moving into Virgo in the early morning, putting us in the mood to tackle our to-do lists and spreadsheets. By later tonight, chatty Mercury moves home to Virgo, ramping up our ability to think critically, act responsibly, and the need to make improvements along the way. With Mercury in Virgo, we should find it easier to find solutions for problems and get things sorted out.
A bit later in the evening, the Moon in Virgo joins forces with innovative Uranus in Taurus, which lends us some creative inspiration and the ability to think outside the box. Together, this cosmic combo can help us with taking a fresh or progressive approach to achieve a goal or bringing a plan to life.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your zodiac sign today, and make sure to check out your August 2020 monthly horoscope.
