In this August 31 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.
The moon is in friendly and innovative Aquarius today, putting us in the mood to connect with friends, as well as those within our network or community. Though with the moon brushing up against critical Mercury in Virgo and Venus in tenderhearted Cancer during the day, we're reminded to try and be objective, patient, and not to take things too personally when dealing with others.
However, as both Aquarius and Cancer are signs that are community-oriented and Virgo is a sign that loves to be of help to others, today's astro-weather reminds us that today could be a great day to pitch in where we can and support friends, family, or people in need. For those of us that could use help or support, today is also a great time to reach out and ask for it.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your zodiac sign today, and make sure to check out your August 2020 monthly horoscope.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Aries (March 21-April 19)
Today's a good day to connect with your people, particularly if you're in need of a pick-me-up or some camaraderie. Too, in what ways can you give back to your community? Offer what you can.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Taurus (April 20-May 20)
You're focused on your goals, but be mindful about where you place your attention, as not everything or everyone is worth it. You don't need to fight for anyone else's validation or approval right now.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Gemini (May 21-June 20)
An opportunity could present itself today. Though, before you jump on anything, consider whether it's really worth it for you. You don't have to say yes to everything that comes your way. Think it through.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Cancer (June 21-July 22)
You're craving some extra care and attention now, but take care that you're not settling to get it from just anybody. Be discerning with your heart and your energy. Remember how much you have to offer.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
Partnership is the focus today, and you're called to team up with others, even if it makes you feel vulnerable. You could use a helping hand. On the flip side, look at where you can be of help to someone else.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
As you tackle your to-do list and work on helping others, taking care of your health and well-being should also be on the list. Remember, you don't have to be a superhero. Just do the best you can.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Your creative juices are flowing today, making it a good time to finish up a creative project or follow through on something you've been working on. Make time for a little fun, too. You deserve.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
Home and family are the focus today, as you could be in need of support from your loved ones, or they could need support from you. Get your emotional nourishment. Your spirits could use a boost.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
You're never short on words and opinions, but it's best to be more thoughtful about what you say and to whom you're saying it. If feeling restless, try to channel the energy into something productive.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
You value your ability to hold your own, but today you're reminded that the people and relationships in your life are valuable, too. Give thanks for the people who have shown up for you. You can't always go it alone.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
It's all about you and what you're feeling today. And if you're feeling rundown, now's the time to pamper yourself. It's also a good time to let others know what you need. Prioritize yourself and your day.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
You might be feeling more tired or down than usual, which is a good sign that you need a timeout. Seek out the things that inspire and uplift you as that's where your treasure is today. You don't have to be "on."
