Your daily horoscopes for Friday September 22, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Friday September 22
Pay no attention to those rumors, Aries! Sipping tea could land YOU in hot water today, so avoid getting tangled up with the gossipy types. With a stabilizing quarter moon shimmering in Sagittarius and your visionary ninth house, fact-check stories before jumping to any conclusions. Confronting someone with unsubstantiated hearsay could lead to an awkward (and unnecessary!) conflict. Instead of rushing into battle, examine this information with a critical eye. Can you trust your source? Or is this person trying to influence your opinion? Hold your fire until you learn the truth!
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Friday September 22
Your passions are on slow burn today as the quarter moon anchors in Sagittarius and your sexy, spirited eighth house. If you’re coupled, you may feel like discussing “next steps” or making a more serious commitment. Single? You could be inspired to rush into a relationship with a new romantic prospect. But slow your roll…at least a little, Taurus! Even if you’re eager to seal the romantic deal, it might be a little too soon to put all your eggs in one basket. Focus on the long game instead of pushing for instant gratification. If it’s going to last forever, what’s the rush?
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Friday September 22
Today’s quarter moon in Sagittarius shines its balancing beams into your relationship house, helping to restore equilibrium to your closest connections. Have you been looking to your S.O. or collaborators for a nod of approval? While it feels good to get a thumbs-up from people you admire, today is about cultivating a sense of self-sufficiency within partnerships. If something (or someone) suits YOUR tastes, that’s what matters. Trust in your vision, Gemini, and don’t be afraid to share it! Build your internal conviction and, if you really believe in something, don’t crumble to outside pressure.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Friday September 22
Pour another matcha latte! A little extra caffeine could go a long way as today’s Sagittarius quarter moon lumbers through your sixth house of work and service. Mute that group text thread and plow through your task list, sans distractions. While you want to present a polished end product, don’t waste valuable time worrying over inconsequential details. The finish line is in sight, but you’ll never reach it if you get lost in the weeds. If you need a little extra help from a colleague in order to meet that deadline, just ask. A strategic collaboration could help you achieve your goal in record time.
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Friday September 22
Feeling chatty? Careful, Leo. In your zeal, you might dominate conversations today, especially as the quarter moon in Sagittarius stage-lights your theatrically expressive fifth house. Before you go on a storytelling spree, gauge your audience’s interest. Are people actually enjoying the epic tale of your encounter with your CrossFit crush…or are their eyes glazing over as they listen politely? Get to the point as quickly as possible, THEN embellish with details. And even if you do hold the crowd in thrall, are you returning the gesture and passing the mic? Think dialogues, not monologues. People will be more engaged and invested if you draw them in!
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Friday September 22
Cozy up in your nest, Virgo—or get back to it as fast as you can! Today’s balancing quarter moon hunkers down in your domestic fourth house, giving you the cosmic green light to keep it chill. If you’re feeling exhausted, give yourself a much-needed break. Rather than trudging off to boot camp class after work, head home for a little self-care session. Break out your favorite stones, apply some essential oils and listen to a guided meditation. If you’re feeling like company, invite a close friend over for a relaxed dinner—or opt for takeout if you don’t have the energy to cook. Need to restore some order to your home? Tackle one room instead of a marathon HGTV mission.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Friday September 22
What’s the rush, Libra? If you’ve been pushing yourself to the limit recently, maybe it’s time for a break. Step back and take stock of your progress. Could you be working more efficiently? Are you getting mired in unimportant details? Approach your grand plans with a systematic eye today as a stabilizing quarter moon hunkers down in your mentally clarifying third house. Reprioritize your tasks if necessary, focusing on only the most critical deadlines and postponing any non-essential missions. And don’t be afraid to call for backup if you need help getting to the finish line! A cooperative connection could emerge—one that could potentially evolve into a dynamic duo.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Friday September 22
If teamwork makes the dream work, then why does a certain project feel like a nightmare? A group effort may take a tempestuous turn today, but don’t give up hope. You’ll have the strength to rally the troops as a balancing quarter moon marches into Sagittarius and your industrious second house. Take a timeout to review your process with your professional posse. Streamline your workflow, energize (or evict) any slackers and re-strategize if necessary. Rather than reprimand people for their shortcomings, try some positive reinforcement. A little morale boost could go a long way toward revitalizing the whole group.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Friday September 22
Feeling free…or fenced in? Under today’s balancing quarter moon in Sagittarius, you won’t take kindly to anyone tethering your spirit or tying up your schedule. But easy does it, Archer—you don’t want to assert SO much fierce independence that you push your people away. Reschedule appointments where you can, and carve out some much-needed solo time. Read a book in the park during your lunch break or sneak out of the office early for a centering yoga class or a session at the float spa. If you get inspired—and if you have the time—dive back into a passion project you may have neglected recently. Your mini-sabbatical could be incredibly restorative.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Friday September 22
Are you juggling like a maniac at the office…and in life? Slow down before you drop the ball. If your workload feels overwhelming, today’s quarter moon can help you find a healthier balance. Can you ask for an extension on an upcoming deadline? While it might not be the ideal scenario, it’s better than burning out. Take a look at your fall calendar: What can you realistically take off your plate? Delegate where you can, and just say “no” to any friend favors that will eat away at your time. If you’re coping with residual stress, skip the coffee and try a calming loose-leaf tea or a few drops of CBD oil.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Friday September 22
Ready, set, reconnect! Today’s quarter moon in Sagittarius and your communal eleventh house blesses you with a boost of gregarious energy. After laying low (or laying by the pool) this summer, you’re eager to get back on the social scene. Has your vacation schedule cut into your quality time with friends? This could be the perfect night to organize an impromptu group hangout—or to rsvp “yes” to a friend’s evening show. But ease into it instead of overloading your schedule with one-on-ones. This quarter moon is about balance, not extremes, and you need to leave a FEW blank spaces on your fall calendar!
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Friday September 22
You’re on a mission, Pisces! But is a certain someone getting in the way of your progress? Under today’s harmonizing quarter moon, don’t make the mistake of bulldozing right over them. Stop to assess: Do you need to call a meeting to align strategies and get back on the same page—or is it time to (graciously) agree to go your separate ways? An honest dialogue can clear the path so you can zoom ahead freely. If you feel like you’re pouring too much energy into a project that’s not bringing a healthy ROI, it might be time to put that plan on hold and focus on more rewarding ventures.
