In this Aug. 5 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 is in dreamy and compassionate Pisces today, putting the emphasis on slowing down, creative inspiration, and doing something kind on behalf of others. When the moon is in Pisces, we usually find ourselves feeling sleepier than usual or in need of a timeout.
Losing ourselves in a good movie, vibing out to some music, or delving into a creative project are just some of the ways that we can make the most of our time under the Pisces moon, especially as the moon meets up with innovative Uranus in Taurus by the evening.
Since Pisces is also associated with selflessness, today is also a good day to give our time or donate our resources to people in need or lend someone an empathetic ear. For those of us that might be feeling a bit tender today, we're encouraged to connect with loved ones.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and make sure to check out your August 2020 monthly horoscope.
