Bustle’s resident astrologer Mecca Woods, founder of My Life Created, shares every zodiac sign’s daily horoscope for today, August 9, 2022.
The moon is in grounded Capricorn, bringing attention to practical matters, like work and responsibilities. Although Capricorn is a sign that’s quite industrious, there’s some janky energy in the air today that can make it a bit difficult to get tasks accomplished. One major reason for this is because of the tense opposition between Venus in tenderhearted Cancer and power-hungry Pluto in Capricorn that’s active for most of the day.
This Venus-Pluto aspect can make it difficult to handle tasks or situations that require teamwork or compromise. This cosmic pair can often expose the cracks in a relationship or unhealthy relationship patterns. As a result, you’ll need to lean into the mature and levelheaded energy of the moon in Capricorn, steering clear of unnecessary drama. The Capricorn moon also encourages employing boundaries or showing some backbone where needed, particularly as it faces off with wounded Chiron in Aries in the afternoon.
Fortunately, the day ends on a fairly positive note when the moon in Capricorn teams up with innovative Uranus in Taurus in the evening. With the support of this planetary team, you can begin making better choices or adopting new coping strategies for dealing with problems or relationship issues.
