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 27, 2018.
Even though the Moon is in dreamy and relaxing Pisces, Mars (the planet of action) begins moving forward again today after being retrograde for the last two months. With Mars direct in ambitious Capricorn, we should find it a lot easier to get things done and put our energy into the right things. Meanwhile the Pisces Moon teams up with dreamy Neptune in Pisces, growth-oriented Jupiter in Scorpio, and powerful Pluto in Capricorn before the day is out. Under this cosmic combination, we should not only find ourselves dreaming of a master plan, we should also find ourselves with the motivation to fulfill it.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and check out your August 2018 monthly horoscope.
