Astrologer Alexandria Lettman shares every zodiac sign’s daily horoscope for today, August 16, 2022.

Today gets off to a dramatic start as the Moon in bold and reactive Aries will support Saturn retrograde in Aquarius, encouraging you to take radical self-responsibility. Your emotional maturity may attract people who are looking for someone to depend on. Support them with their problems if they’re struggling to meet challenges head-on.

Later in the afternoon, you could be on the verge of a mental breakthrough as Mercury in analytical Virgo receives encouragement from out-of-the-box Uranus in Taurus. This energy is great for discovering new solutions to nagging problems by setting time aside to do some intentional problem-solving. With the North Node of destiny close by, you’ll be able to improve your workflow by focusing on the bigger picture and integral steps between you and your goals.
