In this daily horoscope for August 25, 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.
Balancing our own needs with the needs or concerns of others is today’s assignment. That’s because the moon remains stationed in self-confident Aries, which teams up with community-focused Saturn in Aquarius and opposes cooperative Venus in Libra in the morning. As a result, we’re called to use the enthusiasm of the Aries moon to encourage and stand up on behalf of others, while Saturn and Venus remind us that there are other people besides ourselves to consider.
Thoughtfulness and kindness are big themes today, especially as we’ve kicked off Virgo season 2021, which encourages us to be patient and helpful. Plus, with wounded Chiron in Aries in the mix this afternoon, we’re pushed to temper any behavior that’s too self-focused. At the same time, for those of us who are used to being more independent, we’ll find that we can actually get further with our goals by accepting support from others.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Aries (March 21-April 19)
