In this daily horoscope for August 12, 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 moon remains stationed in balance-seeking Libra. Under the Libra moon, we’re encouraged to seek more balance within our professional and private lives, as well as our relationships. As Venus (the planetary ruler of Libra) remains in considerate and devoted Virgo, we’re inspired to toward reciprocity and kindness. With the Libra moon teaming up with supportive Saturn in Aquarius in the morning, we can look forward to others returning the favor.
However, if we find our partnerships or connections lacking in reciprocity or balance, Saturn in Aquarius encourages us to work through the tough spots while keeping our boundaries in tact. On a positive note, today’s cosmic weather is perfect for anything related to teamwork and connecting with the people around us. Camaraderie and community are the keywords, as we’re reminded that the world is so much bigger than just us.
