In this July 31 daily horoscope, Bustle's resident astrologer Mecca Woods, the founder of My Life Created, shares the astrological events happening today that will affect every sign. Below, here's a look at how astrology will affect our lives today.
If the past couple of days had us feeling a bit scattered, today offers us the chance to get grounded and back on track with the Moon entering pragmatic Capricorn in the early morning. With the Moon in Capricorn, we're called to put our nose to the grindstone and take a no-nonsense approach to the day. We're called to handle our responsibilities and commit to doing the work it takes to achieve our goals.
Although the days when the Capricorn Moon can be good for tackling a work day or shoring up the patience and determination needed to move past difficult challenges, it can also be a time when we might feel more somber or emotionally heavier than usual. With the Sun in playful Leo meeting up wounded Chiron in Aries by the late evening, it could be a time when we can find some healing vibes through creative expression and things that bring us joy.
Read below to see what the stars mean for your sign today, and make sure to check out your July 2020 monthly horoscope.
