Your daily horoscopes for Thursday November 23, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Thursday November 23
So much for constructive criticism. Thanks to today’s tense angle between the Sun tough-love Saturn, even well-intentioned advice could rub you the wrong way. (And don’t dish it out if you can’t take it!) Try not to slip into self-doubt, Aries. Feedback, even the kind you don’t want to hear, can be a catalyst for growth. If you feel like you’re facing an insurmountable challenge, step away from it for a few hours—and go hit the gym hard. Switching gears can reboot your creativity, creating space for innovative solutions to flow in.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Thursday November 23
Where have all the adults gone? Today’s tangled angle between the ego-driven Sun and disciplinarian Saturn could spark a rebellion. You may feel like the only grownup in the group, or, conversely, someone’s heavy-handed approach to authority could rile your inner teenager. Expect power struggles and a sighting of your own control issues, Taurus. With everyone’s insecurities on display, minor grievances could flare into defensiveness. Unfortunately, trying to wrestle control will only further the battle. Let someone else “win” today. They’ll be begging for you to take the lead tomorrow.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Thursday November 23
Stop! Don’t sign on that dotted line! Today, the Sun in your partnership zone clashes with critical Saturn in your ambitious tenth house. Fear and anxiety may cloud your thinking when it comes to making a deal. If you’re second-guessing your own judgment, hit the brakes. Stalling, at least for a few hours, can give you a chance to make some phone calls and research whatever’s giving you pause. Though there’s a chance you’re overreacting, this is not the day to ignore your intuition. It’s not like you have to back out of the agreement, but you may need to renegotiate a couple of points.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Thursday November 23
No one ever promised you a rose garden, Cancer, but you’re certainly capable of growing your own blooms. Today, the idealistic Sagittarius Sun gets a nudge from hardworking Saturn, inspiring you to hustle a little harder. Instead of getting frustrated over a lack of results, add some DIY magic to the equation. By taking matters into your own hands, you’ll move out of a passive position and into the driver’s seat. Next step: dropping the perfectionism and letting yourself enjoy the process. Don’t let one discouraging day drag you down! Flip the script by acknowledging how far you’ve already come.
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Thursday November 23
The low-hanging fruit won’t appeal to you today, Leo. You’d rather climb onto the skinny branches and come back with some brag-worthy bounty. While your ambition is admirable, make sure the prize is actually worth the effort. Things could get complicated—and fast—due to a tangled angle between the sanguine Sun and drill sergeant Saturn. Unless you’re prepared to navigate unplanned twists and turns, it might be best to sit this one out. You’ll have more meaningful victories soon enough!
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Thursday November 23
Go easy on the tough love, Virgo. You want the best for the people in your life—and when you see a red flag, you’re quick to sound the alarm. But with today’s spotty connection between the Sun and stern Saturn, your advice could come off as preachy. Instead of firing off feedback, ask questions. You may be pleased to discover that your loved ones are already engaging in savvy solutions. Chill with the opinion-polling when it comes to your own life. You can drive yourself insane asking too many friends for their input. Allow yourself to sit with a vexing issue for 24 hours and see if an answer doesn’t arise on its own.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Thursday November 23
Reality check! This could be a “one step forward, two steps back” kind of day for you, Libra, especially if you rush forward without a plan. The confidence-boosting Sun gets checked by planetary project manager Saturn, bringing you crashing back down from the clouds. While this won’t feel like fun—at first—embrace the opportunity to put practical structures in place. You’ll feel a lot less anxious once you’re clear on how much time, energy or money this big idea will require to pull off.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Thursday November 23
You’ve been dishing out unsolicited feedback left and right, Scorpio. But are you tough enough to take it? Today’s clash between the ego-driven Sun and critical Saturn could make you a little too thin-skinned for a role reversal. If your “helpful hints” hit below the belt, don’t get defensive. Instead, take it as an important lesson in compassion. You were only trying to help, but remember to bring down the truth hammer with less force and more understanding. On that note, do you owe anyone an apology? Swallow your pride and extend the olive branch.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Thursday November 23
There’s no drama like family drama. The Sagittarius Sun butts heads with constraining Saturn in your emotional fourth house, ratcheting up tension. Do you keep hitting the same wall with a relative—or finding yourselves stuck in a debate loop? Decreeing certain subjects off-limits may be the only way to preserve the love right now, Archer. Look for common ground, even if it’s something as elemental as cooking a favorite meal together or comparing notes on the new season of a TV show you both love. That said, a temporary cooldown period might be best, especially on a day as tense as this one.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Thursday November 23
If you’re feeling down or frustrated, don’t distract yourself. Instead, pause and sit with the emotions. Write in your journal, get some fresh air, meet an empathetic friend for a walk. There’s a reason this situation is bothering you, Capricorn, and today’s Sun in your intuitive twelfth house could help you get to the bottom of it. A nudge from your ruler, solution-oriented Saturn, can support you with handling things proactively. But don’t rush to smooth over the tension. In order to truly fix the problem, you have to get to the bottom of what’s bugging you.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Thursday November 23
You may be the zodiac’s consummate team player, but your bossy streak is just as fierce as your cooperative nature. Today, as the ego-driven Sun clashes with unyielding Saturn, you may find yourself barking orders and insisting that people go along with YOUR vision. (There could actually be stomping and pouting if they don’t concede.) Although your plan probably is the best one, bend a bit in the name of keeping morale high. Your flexibility will actually make people more open to trying your ideas.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Thursday November 23
You have good reason to gloat today, but be gracious instead. With the Sagittarius Sun getting checked by modest Saturn, you could rile up unnecessary competition by flaunting your victories without sharing a piece of the pie. You don’t have to downplay your talents or fly under the radar. Just put your focus on empowering others to do and be their best. Can you offer some tips from the road or take a newbie under your wing? Be the benevolent leader, and no one will begrudge you your success. Quite the contrary! An eager assistant could show up to support you in your ascent.
