In this daily horoscope for August 23, 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 mixed bag of energy in the air today, as the moon in compassionate Pisces opposes intellectual Mercury and assertive Mars in analytical Virgo by the second half of the day. As a result, there could be a “head or heart” vibe in the air, which might have us overthinking things or feeling more sensitive than usual. With independent Uranus in Taurus also in the mix, a go-with-the-flow attitude can help us avoid getting too stuck in our emotions.

That said, the day starts out on a positive vibe with Venus in cooperative Libra teaming up with supportive Saturn in Aquarius. Under this cosmic combo, we’re encouraged to work through any hiccups we might encounter today with a fair and objective approach. Getting the support of friends and loved ones (or offering support where needed) is also encouraged, especially if we’re feeling down, anxious, or confused.

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