In this daily horoscope for August 19, 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 no-nonsense Capricorn, putting us in the mood to get down to brass tacks and work toward our goals for today and beyond. With the Capricorn moon teaming up with visionary Neptune in Pisces by the late afternoon and powerful Pluto in Capricorn by the early evening, we’re inspired to put in the effort necessary to bring a dream to life.

At the same time, we’re called to assess our values and ensure that we’re living by them, even if it’s challenging at times. We might find that it’s time to walk away from a situation if it doesn’t hold meaning for us or compromises our beliefs. This theme is repeated toward the late evening — the confident Sun in Leo makes an opposition to philosophical Jupiter in Aquarius, inspiring us to act with integrity. This Sun-Jupiter aspect also highlights the need to trust and believe in ourselves in bringing our biggest plans to life. We’ll just need to make sure we’re not being egocentric in the process.

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