In this daily horoscope for August 4, 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 a high-energy start to the day with the moon in chatty Gemini. With the moon in Gemini teaming up with growth-oriented Jupiter in Aquarius by the afternoon, we’re encouraged to connect with others and put the wheels in motion for important plans. For those of us who work with the public or on a team, we can expect things to go well. If we’re not yet ready to move forward with a task or project, it’s also an excellent time for brainstorming ideas.
By the late afternoon, the vibe shifts as the moon moves home to tenderhearted Cancer, putting us in the mood to tend to anything related to our home, family, or emotional well-being. With the sun in playful Leo meeting up with wounded Chiron in Aries toward the evening, we’re encouraged to prioritize anything that brings us joy.
