In this daily horoscope for August 11, Bustle’s resident astrologer Mecca Woods, 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 momentum continues as the moon finishes her stay in productive Virgo, helping us to tackle the most important tasks on our to-do lists. With the moon meeting up with values-driven Venus in Virgo, as well as powerful Pluto in Capricorn in the morning, this can be a good day for planning and making financial decisions. Intellectual Mercury moves home to Virgo late this afternoon, which will help keep our mind sharp.
Meanwhile, the moon makes a wardrobe change when she moves to balance-seeking Libra by this afternoon. With multiple planets in thoughtful Virgo, including feel-good Venus and the moon in Libra, it’s a great time for restoring balance to the places in our lives that feel out of whack. This goes for our bodies, too. Helping or being of service to others is also encouraged.
