On Saturday, August 6th, a first-quarter Moon opposes Mars in the 2nd and 8th Houses, respectively. Not only are both Houses inextricably linked to our perception of ourselves. But these two celestial bodies are also largely individualistic. The Moon governs our emotions, while Mars influences where and how we assert ourselves.
What might this starry stand-off mean for your sign today?

Finding a balance between work and home life is important. However, be cautious of swinging too far in either direction. There is a way to do this without jeopardizing one or the other. It’s all about give and take.
Your mind goes a million miles a minute. Consequently, you’ve developed a habit of tuning out the humdrum to maintain your sanity. While this is certainly understandable, your subconscious is trying to tell you something. Listen to it.
Finding the middle ground between assertiveness and overbearingness isn’t easy. It might take a few missteps or missed chances before you really get the hang of it. But whatever you do, don’t give up out of frustration.

The stars are lining up in your favor, Virgo. You have the mental prowess and sharp wit to handle this obstacle head-on. So, trust your gut, and keep moving forward. Life will try to intimidate you, but you can’t let it.
The harmful behavioral patterns you exhibit today are a direct result of a tumultuous experience in your past. Thus, the only way out of this cycle is to address those skeletons face-to-face. You’re braver than you think, Libra.
If you constantly anticipate rain, then it’s going to seem as though it follows you around wherever you go. Conversely, if you focus on the sunshine, suddenly, it appears more plentiful. It’s up to you where your attention lies.
Is climbing to the top really worth it if you don’t like anyone up there? Moreover, is it worth it if you don’t like yourself? Take some time today to reassess your priorities. They’re starting to look a little jumbled.
You’ve invested ample time and capital into this endeavor. Now, it’s time to ask your community to follow suit. Not only will this expedite your progress. But connecting with others in this way is also going to do wonders for your self-esteem.
It’s tough to feel like you belong in any one group when so much of your identity involves being different. Indeed, your eccentric persona can alienate you from those closest to you. There’s nothing wrong with fitting into the right crowd.
