In this daily horoscope for August 20, 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.

There’s a friendly yet electric buzz in the air today, as the moon moves to innovative and community-oriented Aquarius in the wee hours of the morning. With the moon in Aquarius, we’re in a more social and high-energy mood, especially as the moon teams up with Venus in cooperative Libra by the afternoon. By the evening, the moon teams up with supportive Saturn in Aquarius. This Moon-Venus-Saturn combo can be helpful for group projects, public-facing work and presentations, and social events.

Meanwhile, brainy Mercury in Virgo teams up with future-forward Uranus in Taurus during the first half of the day. This cosmic combo coupled with the moon in Aquarius invites us to think outside the box and try new things. A fresh approach or perspective can be the key to helping us solve problems and develop great ideas.
