In this daily horoscope for August 3, 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.

Our minds are abuzz with ideas today with the moon in intellectual Gemini. As the Gemini moon teams up with the sun and Mercury in creative Leo during the first half of the day, we can expect a big burst of creative energy that can help us with completing projects or starting a new one. With Venus in analytical Virgo meeting up with unconventional Uranus in Taurus early in the day and Mercury in Leo facing off with Uranus by the late evening, innovation and originality gives us the keys to success.

However, as the Gemini moon faces off with Venus in Virgo by midday, we’ll need to take care that we don’t spread ourselves too thin. Since Mercury is the planetary ruler of Gemini and Virgo, Mercury in Leo encourages us to focus more on the things that we’re truly passionate about rather than giving too much time and energy to unnecessary distractions.

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