In this daily horoscope for August 16, 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.

It’s a busy day with the moon in on-the-go Sagittarius. We’re in the mood to get up and go, too, especially as the Sagittarius moon faces off with chatty Mercury and active Mars in industrious Virgo toward the afternoon. While this Sagittarius-Virgo mashup can be helpful for applying ourselves to anything that stimulates learning and growth, we’ll need to avoid doing too many things at once.

Teamwork is a big focus now with love planet Venus having moved home to partnership-oriented Libra in the wee hours of the morning. Plus, with supportive Saturn in Aquarius in the mix, we’re encouraged to rely on others and do what we can to help others. With Venus in Libra, reciprocity is the goal. Meanwhile, Venus’ stay in Libra encourages us to step away from work and focus a little more on pleasure.

Read below to see what the stars mean for your zodiac sign today, and make sure to check out your August 2021 monthly horoscope.
