In this daily horoscope for August 30, 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.
It’s an active and energetic day ahead with the moon in industrious Gemini. When the moon is in Gemini, we usually find ourselves simultaneously engaged in a myriad of interests, activities, and conversations. Meanwhile, Mercury (Gemini’s planetary ruler), makes a sign change in the wee hours of the morning, moving into fair and objective Libra. With Mercury in Libra, we’re called to be more kind and diplomatic with our thoughts and words, which could bode well in dealing with others, especially those who are different from us.
At the same time, Mercury in Libra encourages us to seek out the beauty around us, which can be found in music, visual art, fashion, and friendly discussions. If we’ve been feeling heavier or more anxious than usual, Mercury in Libra can help us with finding some peace.
