In this daily horoscope for August 5, 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.
The moon remains in tenderhearted Cancer today, which might have us feeling a bit moodier than usual, especially as the moon faces off with wounded Chiron in Aries by the evening. As a result of the day’s temperamental vibe, we’re called to seek out the emotional nourishment we need. This nourishment could include getting more sleep or connecting with the people who warm our heart. It could also include setting boundaries.
By later tonight, the moon in Cancer teams up with independent Uranus in Taurus. Together, this cosmic combo encourages us to work on releasing something from the past or some form of emotional baggage. On a lighter note, this Moon-Uranus combo can also be helpful for making upgrades to our home or space or getting creative in the kitchen and trying out a new recipe.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Aries (March 21-April 19)
Reach out and lean on your loved ones if needed, as you don't have to go through anything by yourself. Too, try to be conservative with your time and energy. Give yourself space to rest.
