In this September 2 daily horoscope, Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, the 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.
It's a full moon in idealistic and compassionate Pisces today (1:22 a.m. ET), which should heighten our emotions and the need for kindness and empathy. With love planet Venus in tenderhearted Cancer being influenced by the moon in Pisces, and in a tense opposition to hard-nosed Saturn in Capricorn, today's full moon also highlights the ways our beliefs influence the nature of our relationships. For many of us, today will show us where we need to be less self-sacrificing or more giving.
As full moons also represent a chapter coming to a close or an end, later in the morning, we can look to the sun in witty and hardworking Virgo teaming up with innovative Uranus in Taurus to help us with finding a clear path forward or making our next move. With the Pisces moon teaming up with expansive Jupiter in Capricorn by the late afternoon, we're reminded to stay hopeful as we move toward fulfilling our vision or dream. By the evening, the moon teams up with dreamy Neptune in Pisces, which can also heighten our sensitivity and feelings. As such, we're encouraged to take a time out, to unplug, and to tap into activities or spaces that can renew our happiness and spirit.

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Aries (March 21-April 19)

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Taurus (April 20-May 20)
A friendship may need to change or come to an end entirely, especially if it's been an unbalanced one. Don't sweep the situation under the rug. Be mindful of seeing only what you want to see. Pay attention.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Gemini (May 21-June 20)

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Leo (July 23-Aug. 22)

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You're reminded not to doubt or second-guess yourself, even if the path forward isn't entirely clear for you right now. Don't compare yourself to what others are doing. Celebrate and believe in yourself.
