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 7, 2017.
The vibe in the air is electric today thanks to the Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius this afternoon. As eclipses tend to usher in rapid changes, shakeups, and interesting developments, a Lunar Eclipse often points to things coming to an abrupt end or a culmination of sorts. In the unconventional and unpredictable sign of Aquarius, this eclipse pushes us to break free from the status quo and take an innovative approach. Collectively, since Aquarius is associated with things like technology, societal issues, and interpersonal relationships; we may see significant changes or breakthroughs in these areas over the coming months. In the meantime, we can help things along by being open to the changes as they come as the goal of this Lunar Eclipse is to shake us awake and out of anyplace we feel stuck. With passionate Mars in Leo and expansive Jupiter on hand to fuel the power of this eclipse, the only place to go is onward and upwards.
