In this August 3 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, thanks to the full moon in innovative and electric Aquarius (11:59 a.m. ET). As full moons mark periods of things coming to a close or things coming to a head, this full moon could bring us something unexpected or surprising, namely because this moon is also in a tense position with unconventional and unpredictable Uranus in Taurus.
No matter which way we slice it, today definitely will usher in some sort of change. We just need make sure we're open to the new things that come our way and remain as flexible as possible. Though we should be mindful of being to reactive or impulsive as this full moon's energy can have us all feeling excitable and on edge.
Luckily, communicative Mercury in intuitive Saturn will be in an opposition to serious Saturn in Capricorn by the late afternoon, which can help us with finding a moment to ground ourselves or at least to take a moment to process any shifts or surprises that come up. On the other hand, this Mercury-Saturn aspect could have us seeing the glass as half-empty as opposed to half-full, so we'll need to guard against assuming or expecting the worst.
