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 2, 2017.
It should be a fairly high-energy day as the freedom-loving Sagittarius Moon meets up with the Sun and Mars in passionate Leo during the early hours of the morning. With the help of this cosmic combination, we should be feeling inspired, courageous, and ready to follow our heart at a moment's notice. By mid-morning things get a little fuzzy though as the Moon squares off with imaginative Neptune in Pisces. With these two together, we may have trouble with seeing something or someone clearly or we may find ourselves easily taken advantage of, which is why we should avoid making any impulse decisions or getting pulled in by someone that seems too good to be true.
This Moon-Neptune combination is perfect for tapping in to our creative energies.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)
You may be feeling inspired and ready to set out on your next adventure or throw yourself in a creative idea or venture. However, it seems that you may need to let go of something in your past or perhaps the thought that you should be alone. When it comes to fulfilling your dream, you need a team.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
There's a chance you're feeling ready for a change or the craving to do things differently, though you may not be completely clear about what that change entails. Instead of getting sucked in by wishful thinking, look to the things that you can change right now like your job, health, and overall well-being.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
A collaboration could seem like a good idea, but it's important to make sure that whomever you choose to join forces with is on the same page as far as your goals are concerned. Meanwhile, are you overly concerned with making others happy? Choose relationships that offer you happiness and growth.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
Today may be a busy one as you may feel the need to prove yourself when it comes to your work or your craft. As a result, it may be easy to beat yourself up with unrealistic ideas about what you should be doing and where you should be. Instead; take a breath, find your center, and let self-love guide you.
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
With your magnetism registering off the charts, it's no wonder why people are drawn to you like moths to flame, especially when it comes to romance. However, it's important that you make sure that whomever you choose to entertain is really who they say they are. Keep your wits about you.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
You could find yourself feeling angry or resentful about something today; finding it hard to let go of whatever's bothering you, especially if it's in connection to your partner or you feel misunderstood by them. However, being passive aggressive won't accomplish anything. Draw your boundaries.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
You may be craving a break from the monotony which could make it hard for you to stick to a regular schedule or get things done efficiently and on time. While you shouldn't shirk your responsibilities, a time out may not be a bad thing. At the same time, self-care means handling your business too.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You're doing big things when it comes to your career, which means you could be offered the opportunity to take a leadership role or decide that you're ready to make an exit from your current job. If it's the latter, don't let wishful thinking mess with your income or stability. Go off of your intuition.
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
You may be feeling especially pumped up today; ready to take off at a moment's notice and eager to jump-start one of your big ideas. However, a home or family-related matter may be getting in the way of your fun. It may be best to pump the brakes for now and focus more on your long-term plans.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
You may be feeling particularly revved up about something today, but you may be having trouble with how to adequately express how you feel, which could subsequently have you feeling misunderstood and frustrated. However, it may be that it's time for you fully address how you feel and let it go. Move forward.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
You may feel the need to connect or partner with others, namely when it comes to business endeavor. Though, you may have to be wary about investing in others' ideas or projects, especially where your money and resources are concerned. If you must take a risk, let it be on your own thing.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You may find yourself looking for recognition today when it comes to your work. Though, if you don't receive the attention you want, will it have you thinking less of yourself? You may need to go where you'll be better appreciated and compensated. In the meantime, be your own biggest fan.
