We’re constantly fascinated by what our zodiac sign says about our lives, whether it's which signs are most compatible or how each sign handles conflict in relationships. That's why Bustle has enlisted Mecca Woods, a New York City-based astrologer of MyLifeCreated.com, to tell us all about how astrology is affecting our lives each day. Today's topic: your daily horoscope for August 21, 2019.
Today gives us the opportunity to achieve great results when we mix creativity and innovation with some determination and a love for the practical. With the Moon in creative and hardworking Taurus, we should find the motivation we need to make a dream or big idea come true, especially as the Moon teams up with ambitious Mars in Virgo, and Mercury in bold Leo teams up with big-picture Jupiter in Sagittarius.
Meanwhile, love planet Venus enters practical and hardworking Virgo in the early morning, bringing the focus to self-discipline and dedication where relationship and financial matters are concerned. By the early afternoon, when the Moon teams up with unconventional Uranus in Taurus, we get the push we need to break free of unhealthy habits, relationships, and work related matters with both planets being influenced by health-conscious Venus in Virgo.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and make sure to check out your August 2019 monthly horoscope.
