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 9, 2017.
The Moon remains in imaginative and compassionate Pisces today, turning up the feels and the need to Zen out. That's why the meeting between the Moon and sentimental Venus in Cancer later this afternoon will be helping us along, motivating us to seek comfort and good vibes among those we love and love us back. Since this Moon-Venus combination is also useful when it comes to nurturing others, we can use it to look after those in need or to help someone with a random act of kindness. About an hour later, when the Pisces Moon opposes Mercury in Virgo, we may have to watch out for arguments, as this kind of cosmic combo can have us feeling quite opinionated. However, it can be useful venting our feelings to a wise or sympathetic ear.
The best way to make use of this energy is to rest, meditate, follow our creative instincts, and get cozy with the ones we love.
By the evening, the Moon meets up with dreamy Neptune in Pisces, heightening the haziness and sensitivity in the air. The best way to make use of this energy is to rest, meditate, follow our creative instincts, and get cozy with the ones we love.
