Your daily horoscope for Saturday April 8, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Saturday April 8
Be on high alert for hidden costs. Today, a volatile opposition of Uranus and the moon in your money houses can cloud your judgment, potentially leading you into a shady deal. Don’t assume that people will be forthcoming about their expectations in financial exchanges. Before you hit that “add to cart” button, take a moment to investigate the return and exchange policy. And if you’re going to do business with anyone, insist that the terms be put in writing.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Saturday April 8
As the moon clashes with rash Uranus in your sign today, people could shock you with their unreasonable demands. While it may be tempting to go into “righteous indignation” mode and give these bratty types a taste of their own medicine, your response matters more than ever. Be the adult in this situation, even in the face of audacity. With a little diplomacy, you can diffuse the tension and negotiate a counteroffer that benefits everyone involved.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Saturday April 8
Lately, it may feel like the only thing constant is uncertainty. In the face of that, ground yourself with routines and rituals. A simple journaling and meditation practice is a good place to start today. Surrounding yourself with sentimental objects can also be anchoring. Start wearing that necklace you inherited from your grandmother or set up an altar with family photos and meaningful objects that connect you to your ancestors. Anything that triggers a comforting memory can help.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Saturday April 8
You could find yourself at the mercy of other people’s moods and opinions today, Cancer. Rather than getting swept into an exhausting round of mediation and ruffled-feather-smoothing, take charge. Use your vision and insight to direct this ship and its mutinous crew. You might have to log off (or mute) certain threads for a while if things get really out of hand. Truth be told, you can do better by yourself—at least while all THIS drama is going down.
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Saturday April 8
Forget about keeping a stiff upper lip today, Leo, especially if you’re feeling anxious about an unpredictable situation. The waterworks may start to flow if you don’t get a supportive friend on the line to help you unpack what’s bugging you. Even if an ugly cry is what you need, don’t try to figure this one out alone. Call a mentor or reach out to another colleague who might help you make sense of the madness—and not take it quite so personally.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Saturday April 8
Virgo plans, the universe laughs? With the moon and quicksilver Uranus facing off today, you’ll have to think on your feet and roll with what comes your way. Although it’s frustrating to have to pivot at the last minute, this is also an opportunity to be creative and spontaneous. You might just have a refreshingly real conversation with someone who’s been pushing all your buttons lately and finally get to a place of mutual respect. Whatever it takes to get this handled, right?!
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Saturday April 8
Intense emotions rise to the surface under today’s face-off of the moon and volatile Uranus. Jealousy, fear, anxiety: You could fly straight into fight-or-flight mode if someone triggers you. Stay grounded by taking deep breaths, moving your body and NOT trying to work through it all alone. Start dialing and texting if your emotions get too intense. But choose your listeners carefully! You need friends who can help you see a wider perspective, not people who pour fuel on the already-dramatic fires.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Saturday April 8
Argumentative doesn’t even begin to describe a certain person in your life. And with the moon facing off against impossible Uranus today, they could challenge you at every turn. Although their style leaves something to be desired, are they bringing up important concerns? Drop your defensiveness and try to hear the message underneath their tone. You might need to work together to figure out a solution.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Saturday April 8
Your grasp on a situation may feel slippery, at best, today as the moon faces off with erratic Uranus. Surrender, Archer, and let the chips fall where they will. By giving people a chance to show you their true colors, you’ll also learn where their limitations lie. This may or may not be a deal breaker, but it’s certainly better than fooling yourself about people’s nature. Of course, there’s a good chance you’ll be pleasantly surprised, which can help you build trust in a relationship at long last.

Capricorn (December 22-January 18) daily horoscope for Saturday April 8
Don’t put all your Grade AA organic eggs in one basket today, Capricorn. That’s far too much pressure to add to one situation, which could turn out to be rather unstable, thanks to a chaotic moon-Uranus opposition. Put feelers out, line up a backup plan and reach out to your network for support. Simply reminding yourself that you have options (and you totally do!) can help you relax and stay grounded.

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Saturday April 8
All is not quiet on the Aquarius home front today as the moon and your ruler, erratic Uranus, face off. A relative, close friend or roomie could throw a fit, especially if you’ve been paying more attention to other friends or your apps than interacting with them. Perhaps YOU have been too silent about needing appreciation for all that you provide. Don’t let people take you for granted, Aquarius. If they are making demands on your time, they might need a reminder of how your hard work has benefited them too.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Saturday April 8
Read the fine print, Pisces, even if you have a “great feeling” about a situation that you’re about to engage in. Your intuition is powerful, but it can’t pierce every veil. Today’s moon-Uranus face-off insists that you leave nothing up to chance. People can be tricky with their words, which can get you in a bind later on. Put agreements in writing—an email, deal memo or contract. Whether or not money is changing hands, recording the details will confirm that you’re all on the same page.
