In this Aug. 7 daily horoscope, Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, the founder of My Life Created, shares the astrological events happening today that will affect every sign. Below, here's a look at how astrology will affect our lives today.

The cosmic vibes are surging today with the Moon moving to enthusiastic and headstrong Aries by the mid-morning. Plus, love planet Venus finally leaves curious and intellectual Gemini for tenderhearted and intuitive Cancer later in the a.m. We can also expect our passions to surge when it comes to getting what we want and keeping it.

Though with the Moon and Venus squaring off with each other for most of the day, we could feel conflicted between what we need and what we want, which could make it difficult to get either. Luckily, the Aries Moon goes on to meet up with chatty Mercury in bold and confident Leo by later this evening. With the Moon and Mercury together in two straightforward fire signs, they can help us with directly communicating our needs and addressing any concerns that we might have with others. Of course, using a little humor wouldn't hurt.

Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and make sure to check out your August 2020 monthly horoscope.
