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 8, 2017.
We're still buzzing from yesterday's Lunar Eclipse. Meanwhile the Moon remains in Aquarius for the better half of today, continuing themes around breakthroughs and breakups. This is especially true with the Aquarius Moon meeting up with rebellious Uranus in Aries later this afternoon, pushing us to leave what's stuck and outworn behind. Though the vibe in the air calms down significantly when the Moon shifts into intuitive Pisces by the early evening. With the Moon in Pisces, we'll find that we're in the mood to sleep, dream, and engage in intimate, heartfelt encounters; just what we need after coming off such an electric Full Moon.
Read below to see what today's stars mean for your sign.
And remember to tune into Bustle's weekly horoscopes video live on Facebook every other Monday at 5 p.m. EST for a rundown of your weekly horoscope.
Aries (March 21 - April 19)
Rest and relaxation are on the menu today as you're pushed to take a time out. While you're used to moving at full speed, know that your body and your soul can use the quiet time. If you find yourself in your feelings, that's OK too as you need to work on letting go of the emotional "junk".
Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
You get by with a little help from your friends today, especially if you're in need of some love and support. Look to those around you to offer you a sound ear or some good old TLC. At the same time, a friend could call on your help today. Be helpful, but be wary of those that drain you.
Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Fulfillment is a major theme for you today as you may find yourself questioning whether you feel fulfilled or not when it comes to your career. If the answer is no, then it's your duty to yourself to get to the root of why. No need in pretending that things will work out on their own.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
It's all about quenching your thirst for knowledge and adventure today, which could have you ready to book your next flight out of town or taking up a new course or curriculum. Overall, your mission is to push yourself beyond what you already know and expand your mind. Where will you go?
Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
You may find yourself feeling a bit moodier today than usual, though it's no cause for alarm. It could just be that your feelings are trying to get your attention to help you to understand something deeper. Stuffing or ignoring your feelings won't be helpful though. Get it all out.
Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Your focus is on your relationships today as you may feel motivated to connect with others at a heartfelt level. When it comes to romance, quality time spent with your partner can be replenishing for you both, while a business partnership succeeds when both parties are all in.
Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
"Treat yo' self" might be the motto for you today as you find yourself in the mood to treat your body better. Being more mindful of what you eat, when you eat, and how you eat may help while clearing out any unnecessary clutter around you can lift your mood. Overall, take care of you.
Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
Love is sweet, as you may find yourself in a dreamy and romantic mood. Whether single or not, everyone wins when there's amor in the air, so breathe deep and indulge. This goes for your creative energy too. Give into your inspiration. Today's your day to let go and have fun!
Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Your home and family come into focus today as you may find yourself pitching in to help out around the house or perhaps helping with an aging parent. Above all, this is a time to tend to your more private needs, making room to decompress and get the emotional nourishment you need.
Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Today may be an exceptionally busy day as you catch up with phone calls, errands, and emails. Though as you go about your day, make sure that the conversations and interactions you have with others are those that matter. In other words, words have impact. Make 'em count.
Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
If you feel like you haven't been getting your due, namely when it comes to your income, it may be time to examine whether or not you think you deserve more. Simply put: unless you think you're worth it, you wont be. Getting what you want requires that you believe in your own worth.
Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
It's time to focus on what you need. If you feel like taking time to yourself, do it. If you feel like wearing something that lifts your spirits, do it. Your goal today be wary of anything that brings you down and engaging the people and things that uplift you. Put yourself first for a change.
