In this daily horoscope for August 24, 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 haze in the atmosphere with the moon in dreamy Pisces for the first half of the day, while analytical Mercury in Virgo opposes confusing Neptune in Pisces during the second half. As a result, it might be difficult to think in a clearheaded way or see the reality of a situation. The best way to navigate this cosmic weather is by avoiding the urge to run away from a problem or seeing only what we want to see about a person or an issue.

Luckily, the moon moves to straightforward Aries by the mid-afternoon, which can help us with getting right to the heart of a matter and making the best decision. Meanwhile, for those of us working to bring a dream or a creative vision to fruition, the moon in Aries coupled with the Mercury-Neptune aspect can lend us the determination and the imagination to do it.

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