In this daily horoscope for August 9, 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 finishes out her stay in warmhearted Leo, giving us a big burst of energy to kick off the day. With the moon in Leo opposing optimistic Jupiter in Aquarius at the top of the morning, we should be able to avoid the usual Monday grumpiness and fatigue. By the late morning, the moon moves to analytical Virgo, which should put us in the mood to get down to work.

However, values-driven Venus in Virgo opposes hazy Neptune in Pisces over the course of the day, which intensifies by later this evening. This means we’ll need to make sure that we don’t overcommit or overextend ourselves at the expense of our values or self-worth. Luckily, disciplined Mars in Virgo steps in by later tonight, working with the moon to help us be more discerning.

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