Your daily horoscopes for Friday September 8, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Friday September 8
Keep your eye on the ball today, Aries. If you want to knock it out of the park, keen focus is required. Eliminate distractions until you’ve ticked all the crucial tasks off your list. Then get out and pitch, promote and present! A flowing trine between the Sun and lucky Jupiter will help you wow the influencers. Don’t forget the gatekeepers! Getting friendly with the “assistant to the queen” could score you an invite into her royal court faster than trying to get through to her direct line.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Friday September 8
Take a chance on romance! Today, lucky Jupiter in Taurus sends a wink to the Sun in Virgo and your fifth house of love. Fortune favors the bold, so don’t deliberate or hesitate if you’re interested in someone. Coupled Taurus should be the initiators. Sure, it’s always nice to be swept off your stilettos, but sometimes you have to wake up the slumbering royal to remind them that it’s officially time to re-enact the fairy tale fantasy. Use the element of surprise—and a dose of good humor—to woo.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Friday September 8
A house divided against itself cannot stand. When the family feuds and in-fighting churn up today, avoid taking sides. That doesn’t mean you have to stay neutral, though. Direct everyone’s attention back to the higher purpose of your collective. Whether it’s love, a common career goal or a world-changing mission, a new focus is needed to nip the petty squabbles in the bud. That said, you don’t want to step over a genuine issue. Steer everyone toward proactive discussions—and pass around a talking stick to ensure no one is interrupted!
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Friday September 8
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Friday September 8
Growth is on your mind today as expansive Jupiter and the Sun team up to boost your confidence. But “bigger, stronger, faster” doesn’t necessarily mean better. Aim for quality AND quantity, Leo. If it’s sustainably sourced, ethically produced and good for the soul, then it has your name written all over it. That good karma has a way of coming back around, so if you have to invest a little more in goods and materials, don’t sweat it. You’re more than likely to earn it back in profits.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Friday September 8
The world is your oyster today—pearl included! The Virgo Sun gets in a flowing formation (a trine) with worldly Jupiter in your travel zone. Treat yourself to an experience that will broaden your horizons and make you feel like a citizen of the world. This doesn’t have to break the bank. You can watch a foreign film or do a session with an herbalist who specializes in Eastern medicine. If you’ve been saving up, however, this would be an ideal day to book an adventurous vacation.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Friday September 8
There’s no telling where your intuition may lead you today as wise Jupiter trines the Sun and sharpens your Spidey senses. Let cautious optimism be the guiding principle as you follow up on the “leads” that arrive as gut feelings. Wait until you have evidence to make any public proclamations or post on Instagram. And even then, these delicious discoveries might best be enjoyed with your innermost circle only. A shared secret can be the ultimate bonding experience.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Friday September 8
It’s easy to get excited when you stumble on a kindred spirit, and today’s Sun-Jupiter trine could bring a whole flock of them. When you meet a crowd who shares common interests, engage! You don’t have to rush to share every personal detail or fill out the yearly membership application. Just enjoy the synergy and let things unfold naturally. If your positive hunch is right on with this bunch, you’ll become a card-carrying constituent soon enough. Make “inclusivity” the guiding principle of your day and invite a new acquaintance to join your co-worker crew for lunch.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Friday September 8
Roll the dice on a career opportunity, Sagittarius! With the Sun sweetly angled to lucky Jupiter, a calculated risk could pay major dividends. A friendly reminder: It takes money to make money. Paying for expert training, new business cards or software that lets you bring work home is cash wisely spent. This isn’t about gambling; it’s a matter of investing in your own growth. Go out of your way to connect with industry movers and shakers. One friendly gesture could open the floodgates!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Friday September 8
Too many cooks in the kitchen! You need space to work your magic today. Even the most well-meaning, eager assistant could fray your last nerve. Before you snap, be honest about your desire for breathing room. After a few hours of independent exploration, you’ll emerge with something brilliant to show for it. Even then, keep the commenters on mute. The last thing you need is a critique while you’re still in the early phase of a creative cycle.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Friday September 8
You have zero time for herding cats today, Aquarius—or lions or tigers or cheetahs, for that matter. Thanks to a sultry alignment of the Sun and expansive Jupiter, you’d rather go prowling with a partner in crime. Slip off with your favorite plus-one whenever you can—perhaps for a lunch meeting or a sexy rendezvous. Single Aquarians could magnetize a soulmate-grade prospect. Plant yourself among the high-vibe set. You never know who will be stretched out in Warrior II on the adjacent yoga mat.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Friday September 8
You enjoy a lively group hang as much as the next social butterfly, but today, one special soul may flutter out from the swarm. If you can’t stop talking (or staring at each other from across the room), take full initiative in the “let’s get to know each other” department. With a venturesome trine between the Sun and lucky Jupiter, the connection could heat up fast! Whether for romance, finance or a creative collaboration, this one has “dynamic duo” written all over it.
