Your daily horoscopes for Thursday May 9, 2024

Aries Daily horoscope

Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Thursday May 9

While you’d love to entrust a complicated work project to a colleague or business partner, your wiser self is pushing you to gett everything in writing. Today, a signal-scrambling square between the moon and challenging Saturn threatens to undermine all the work you’ve put into this. To save yourself frustration, take the time to review the details and specifics. And if anyone takes exception to it, don’t try to fix it yourself: Bring in a manager or human resources person to handle the situation.

Taurus Daily horoscope

Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Thursday May 9

Your generosity is admirable, Bull, but healthy boundaries are essential now. Under today’s tense square between the moon in your money house and and take-charge Saturn in altruistic Pisces, you might be a little too quick to reach for the check. Hopefully no one’s keeping score, but if you’ve made a habit of treating others, allow the scales to rebalance and people to pay their fair share. This is good for your bottom line and their karma!

Gemini Daily horoscope

Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Thursday May 9

Today’s face-off between the moon in your sign and restrictive Saturn could steal a bit of your authenticity. Everyone has different public and private personas, but if yours are hard to reconcile, that might be worth looking at. We’re not talking about posting only your upbeat stuff to your social media feed—everyone does that. But are you holding too much back from your inner circle? Your friends WANT to support and help you, Gemini, so don’t be afraid to let your unpolished side show.

Cancer Daily horoscope

Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Thursday May 9

“No” is not only a complete sentence, it’s an important word to make more frequent use of, Cancer. While your compassionate sign tends to give until it hurts, you’re doing yourself and others a disservice by carrying their burden. Everyone has lessons to learn, and no one “wins” if you interfere with that process. Today, as your ruler, the caring moon, in your unconscious zone squares off with a boundary hound Saturn, get honest with someone about your time (or financial) restraints and don’t overextend. Be straightforward, but stop yourself from over-rationalizing.

Leo Daily horoscope

Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Thursday May 9

Check your ego at the door so you don’t get taken in by someone’s gushing flattery today, Leo. It’s nice to be acknowledged and praised for what you’ve done (and for who you are), but someone might be trying to play you. A dicey square between the moon and status-obsessed Saturn could throw a veil over a situation that isn’t quite as it seems. It’s fine to cautiously pursue this, but keep your healthy skepticism in active mode.

Virgo Daily horoscope

Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Thursday May 9

If something sounds too good to be true today, lean in to your healthy skepticism, Virgo. A terse angle between the moon and discerning Saturn calls someone’s motives into question. Do your research, background checks and other forms of due diligence, and don’t apologize for conducting any of them. A person of integrity won’t mind—they’re probably doing the same thing on you! In fact, make sure you have the proof you need in ALL your relationships. Someone who’s not out-and-out nefarious might still be trying to advance a self-interested agenda.

Libra Daily horoscope

Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Thursday May 9

Hang in there, Libra! You’ve been working hard on a goal, and you can almost see the finish line, but today, something could threaten to derail you or blow you off-course. As the willpower-sapping Gemini moon gets checked by disciplinarian Saturn, you need to slip on blinders and reconnect to the vision that’s driving this ambition. Whether that tempting distraction is a new amorous interest or a night of overindulgence, think about how quickly the pleasure will pass—and how long the remorse could last.

Scorpio Daily horoscope

Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Thursday May 9

A simmering attraction could hit a speed bump under today’s clash between the moon and restrictive Saturn. There’s no questioning how hot this is getting—the problem is, it’ll be nearly impossible to know exactly what you’re dealing with. It’s always safer NOT to play with fire, but you ARE a Scorpio and you’re going to follow your heart regardless of what anyone says. So maybe just hold back a bit and not invest your heart and soul straight out of the gate.

Sagittarius Daily horoscope

Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Thursday May 9

It’s easy for your candid sign to be drawn into intimate conversations—after all, you’re an open book. But today’s stars recommend caution around someone who’s a little TOO slick or fawning. The Gemini moon could bring some creepy-crawlers out of the woodwork, but fortunately, a speed-checking square from Saturn reminds you to be more discerning. Allow relationships to deepen on their own organic timeline. And if you can tell someone’s fishing for insider intel, throw ‘em a red herring!

Capricorn Daily horoscope

Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Thursday May 9

Earplugs, please! The gossip mill is cranking in high gear today, so steer clear of the literal or figurative water cooler. Under an unsettling skirmish between the moon and stoic Saturn, you could get an earful of data that you’ll wish you could unhear. Lips WILL be loose—but yours don’t have to be. You know how precious a sterling reputation is, and your hard-working sign isn’t about to lose face by spreading falsehoods about someone you barely know. In this case, Capricorn, ignorance IS bliss.

Aquarius Daily horoscope

Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Thursday May 9

Tighten your grip on your wallet, Water Bearer! You’re under a retail-therapy warning today as the Gemini moon in your flamboyant fifth house goes mano-a-mano with boundary hound Saturn in your financial sector. Unless you have money to burn, do not “accidentally” wander past your favorite boutique or designer consignment shop on your lunch hour. And don’t fall for sale racks unless you find a true gem. There’s a reason most of those items have been discounted, and the ones that are worthwhile still cost a bundle.

Pisces Daily horoscope

Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Thursday May 9

Boundaries might be easier to permeate than uphold today, Pisces, so be forewarned. With strict Saturn in your sign, you’d love to follow your muse, yet the ringed taskmaster is tussling with the emo moon in your house of close friends and family. Here’s the question: Why do you put others’ needs above your own? Even if you don’t agree, you have a right to express your opinion and be treated with respect. But you have to let people know what you aren’t willing to stand for—and that’s the hard part!
