Bustle’s resident astrologer Mecca Woods, founder of My Life Created, shares every zodiac sign’s daily horoscope for today, August 2, 2022.
The moon enters balanced Libra in the morning, helping us to regain equilibrium after a rocky few days. Whenever the moon is in this peace-loving sign, it’s a good time to seek out the people and activities that offer a cool and breezy respite.
The day kicks off with a friendly meeting between Venus (in tenderhearted Cancer) and Uranus (in innovative Taurus). This cosmic combo is perfect for connecting with both our creative side and with new people, and can also be helpful in embracing change or discovering new pleasures. In the afternoon, the Libra moon makes an opposition to Jupiter in enthusiastic Aries. This Moon-Jupiter aspect could activate some feel-good energy, but also brings some risks: of overextending ourselves or getting caught up in groupthink.
By the second half of the day, the energy is mostly upbeat as the Libra moon teams up with the sun in Leo, making for a romantic and entertaining evening. Venus in Cancer also adds some saucy energy to the mix, when the planet of love meets up with sensual Mars in Taurus later tonight. This Venus-Mars pairing is perfect for love and intimacy, beauty and art, and just about anything else that helps us beat the blues.
