In this daily horoscope for September 1, 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 moves to tenderhearted Cancer in the early hours of the morning, setting the tone for the rest of the day. When the moon is in Cancer, we usually find ourselves feeling moodier than usual. The day starts off a bit bumpy, as the moon faces off with chatty Mercury in logical Libra. As a result, it might be hard to communicate with others, as we’re unable to find the right words or find ourselves too close to the subject at hand.
The best way to navigate the thorny energy of the morning is by leaning into the cool and detached energy of the sun in Virgo. Virgo season teaches us to only give our attention to things that are truly worthwhile or necessary.
When the Cancer moon meets up with the sun in Virgo by later this evening, it’s a good time to focus on practical or home-related matters. Nourishing our minds and bodies is also encouraged, especially if we’re feeling burned out or anxious. Doing something kind or thoughtful for others can be a reward, too.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Aries (March 21-April 19)
It might be best to lay low and avoid getting into unnecessary scuffles on and offline. If you need something to distract you, try focusing on your to-do list.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Taurus (April 20-May 20)
If it feels like you’re spinning your wheels today and getting nowhere, take it as your cue to redirect your energy. Spend time doing something a little more entertaining.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Gemini (May 21-June 20)
If a romantic interest isn’t giving you the attention you’re craving or the dating pool seems a little dry for the time being, don’t take it to heart. Find what you need within yourself.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Cancer (June 21-July 22)
If someone you live with is getting on your nerves, spend some time out of the house or in your own space. Don’t take it upon yourself to be peacemaker right now.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)
You might be focusing on or pining for something you don’t have. In what ways can you be more grateful for what you do have right here and now? Gratitude attracts more to you.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
A financial issue might have you feeling frustrated about getting something you want. Don’t let it dampen your spirits as it’s a temporary situation. You have more power than you know.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
Try to avoid making a rash or impulsive decision today, especially if it’s in reaction to your pride or ego being hurt. Spend some time in solitude and meditation.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
If you’re feeling stressed, a wise friend could offer you comfort and perspective. On a similar note, don’t lose sight of your goals. Keep taking it one day at a time.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Sagittarius (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
If you have an issue with the way that others are doing things, don’t try to control what they do or be too upset about it. Lead by example instead. Be the change you want to see.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Capricorn (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
Be mindful of who you share your plans with today, as they may not be as encouraging as you’d like. Trust that you know what to do and that you’re on the right path.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You only have so much bandwidth now, so try to use it wisely. It’s OK to say no to something or strip your to-do list down. Remember, your time and energy are valuable.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Pisces (Feb. 19-March 20)
If your partner tests your patience today, where can you be more understanding or assertive in the situation? Meanwhile, don’t underestimate your creative gifts. Make sure others value them, too.
