Your daily horoscopes for Tuesday January 9, 2024
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 9
If you’re looking to change your professional trajectory this year or are searching for the best way to bring in more bank, open your mind. Fresh ideas could flow today, when the goal-oriented Capricorn Sun in your ambition arena dovetails with gamechanger Uranus in your finance sector. Even if you’re still getting your head back into work mode, do little things like updating your resume and online profiles or refreshing your website’s theme. If you’re not clear on what you want, this is a great time to start researching the possibilities that are out there.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 9
Stalwart Bulls could be lured outside the “usual pastures” today as the Sun in your globetrotting ninth house clicks with spontaneous Uranus in your sign. Give yourself permission to wander into new terrain! While you may not be able to hop on a red-eye at a moment’s notice (or could you…?), you can at least start hatching an escape plan. Research destinations, set fare alerts and bookmark sites that you want to revisit. And for the time being, find intellectual and physical challenges that will keep you so engrossed you’ll forget to feel bad that you can’t travel right away.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 9
Intense emotions could arise out of the blue and hijack your logical brain today, Twin. When the energizing Sun in your intensity zone signal-boosts wild-card Uranus in your subliminal sector, it’s hard to predict how you’ll feel…and how you’ll express those sentiments! If you’re worried about feeling overwhelmed by social situations, stick to familiar company like your oldest friends (or just your own wonderful self). You don’t want to get triggered and accidentally bite off someone’s head. So what’s the silver lining? It’s an excellent day for making progress on a creative endeavor that you’re passionate about. Let your imagination run wild!
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 9
Have you exceeded your annual hibernation quota already, Crab? Come out of your shell today: The radiant Sun links up with impromptu Uranus, promising lively interactions. A group hang could get whittled down to a tete-a-tete as you become engrossed in a fascinating conversation with someone you feel intuitively guided to talk to. Craving more intimacy in a significant relationship? Find a fun, winter activity that you can do together—something neither of you has done in a while. Check out the lineups at music venues or weekend vacation packages that are within your budget.
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 9
A regal Leo on a quest to do great things? That’s a beautiful sight to behold—as long as you remember that the process counts as much as the end game. Wielding your authority like a dictator won’t inspire your team; in fact, it’s likely to have the opposite effect today while your ruler, the brave Sun, fist-bumps progressive Uranus. If you’re fed up with slackers, take a step back and see if perhaps you’ve assigned people to the wrong roles. Huddle with your squad and come up with an org chart—and a master plan—that plays to everyone’s strengths. Be sure each person walks away with a clear list of tasks and that they’re divided evenly among everyone.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 9
Unless you’re happy with producing mediocre results, don’t do everything by the book today, Virgo. As the Sun in your playful, creative fifth house teams up with unconventional Uranus, drip your brush in a more colorful palette. While this might feel risky, it’s the only way to conjure up something magical that makes your heart sing. Focus on broad strokes instead of getting granular. What’s more important than anything is that you let yourself dabble and test new methodologies—whether they’re analog or AI! If these discoveries reconnect you to your passion, you’ve hit the mark.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 9
Listening is your superpower today, Libra, as the radiant Sun in your sensitive fourth house pings enlightening Uranus in your mysterious eighth. Not only will this allow others to show their hand first, but it buys you bonus time to sift through your feelings before you commit to anything. If you are inspired to open up, book time with your favorite sounding board so there’s ample opportunity for processing. And come clean about how much of their time you really need. Hint: It’s going to take more than “a couple minutes.”
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 9
It might be hard to resist jumping to conclusions today when the Sun in your mentally agile third house gets in cahoots with unpredictable Uranus in your interpersonal zone. But do your best to reserve judgment because people could surprise you—in a good way!—with their hidden layers. Notice the direction your attention is gravitating toward now, and then follow that tangent. Who’s lurking in the wings? Watch what happens when you catch their eye and follow up with a smile.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 9
As you’ve been learning more and more lately, systems can be liberating rather than constraining. And today, as the Capricorn Sun forms a grounding “earth trine” with innovative Uranus in Taurus, you’re here for all the efficiency you can get! Spreadsheets, Kanban boards, social media posting strategies: What can you do to make life run like a well-oiled machine WITHOUT trusting it all to your overtaxed brain? Technology is your friend, so when you’re ready to zap stress, remember that there’s probably an app for that.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 9
Play hooky, Goat…we dare you! The energizing Sun is in your sign, and it’s teaming up with impromptu Uranus in your pleasure-seeking fifth house today. What fun can you get up to on a Tuesday? You might hit the post-holiday sales at your favorite boutiques to try on gorgeous ‘fits that make you smile. Or book a table for lunch or dinner at a hotspot you keep hearing raves about. You’re meant to be seen, with this celebutante vibe permeating your chart, and you might spot a VIP yourself. If you bump into someone you’re excited to meet, walk right up to them and say hello.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 9
When the Sun in your retreat corner connects with your ruler, Uranus, in your moody fourth house today, you won’t feel like your gregarious self. Honor your need for peace and quiet because social activities are likely to drain your battery. No need to make up excuses. Just give people a heads-up that you’re taking some time to yourself. Or you could simply dip below the radar until your tanks are refilled and you feel up to answering messages. They’ll take the hint!
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Tuesday January 9
Give yourself permission to ideate without judgment today, when the radiant Sun in your innovative eleventh house joins forces with unconventional Uranus in your cognitive third. You’ll love exploring the outer reaches of your imagination, but you could leave your cohorts in the dust in the process. Maybe do a check-in with them and then fly solo. A lot of people can’t keep up with your sign’s creativity, so why make them try? You can circle back at a later date if you want to team up.
