Your daily horoscopes for Tuesday September 5, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Tuesday September 5
Your mind is racing this morning, so tune in! As the Taurus moon activates your income zone, it greases the productivity wheels. You’ve got a dozen ingenious ideas for increasing your bottom line, but don’t dive in horns-first like you usually would. Crunch the numbers, do some research and come up with a realistic plan. When la luna swings into Gemini and your social third house late afternoon, you’ll tap another resource that’s at least as valuable as startup capital: the right partner.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Tuesday September 5
Want to get to know someone better? Take the lead. Don’t get stuck in the small-talk vortex if what you’re really craving is an authentic, heartfelt connection. The day begins with the moon in Taurus, giving you the courage to direct the flow of conversations. Later in the afternoon, it gets even easier as la luna shifts into social Gemini. The perfect words will just flow, which helps you break the ice and keep a lively conversation going—without overwhelming anyone.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Tuesday September 5
Lay low early in the day, Gemini: A relaxed Taurus moon in your restful twelfth house makes you move at a much less hectic pace than your usual hustle. Take your time and single-task instead of scattering your energy in too many directions. The more focus you give to each project, the better they’ll turn out. In the second part of the day, you can crank the gears back up to Gemini speed. La luna shifts into your energetic sign and has your mind racing in its usual 50 directions. Have fun, but keep your wits about you.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday September 5
Time for a tech tune-up, Cancer. With your ruler, the moon, illuminating your eleventh house of all things digital this morning, it behooves you to check for software updates—and take appropriate action. If you’re still using your birthday or pet’s name as a password, come up with something stronger. While you’re at it, make sure important docs are backed up and your programs synced between devices. Early in the afternoon, your energy could flag as la luna downshifts into your restful twelfth house for a couple days. Inconvenient for a Tuesday, but don’t push it. Log out at quitting time, whip up (or Doordash) some comfort food, and catch up on your sleep.
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday September 5
Don’t let any moss grow on you, Leo! This morning, the moon is burning brightly in Taurus and your tenth house of success. You’ve got a head for business and enough charisma to close any deal, so work it! But keep your pitches short and sweet by skipping the flowery prose and getting straight to the point. Others want to know what’s in it for THEM. Later in the day, when la luna shimmies into Gemini and your social eleventh house, let your mane down and go play.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday September 5
With the moon in your visionary ninth house this morning, you could wake up recalling a significant dream or have an epiphany over coffee. But don’t go broadcasting this brainstorm to the entire world. This afternoon, la luna shifts into your career corner for the next two days, so carefully consider the impact your communication could have at work. Keep it professional and appropriate, erring on the side of a bit reserved. Plus, you don’t need anyone cribbing your genius plan before you’ve had a chance to put it into motion.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday September 5
Today’s Taurus moon in your eighth house of intense emotions could make you more sensitive and secretive than usual. So if you see something, don’t feel the need to say something—at least not to anyone you wouldn’t trust with the keys to your apartment. Later in the day, when la luna shifts into rational Gemini and your expansive ninth house, you’ll be able to see bae’s forgetting to kiss you good-bye or the stranger who bumped into you in the grocery store aisle as the innocent oversights they were. Now aren’t you glad you didn’t completely lose it?
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Tuesday September 5
Here’s a heads-up before you log on for that client meeting or fire up a controversial conversation: Agree to disagree! That doesn’t mean you’re “wrong” or that your ideas aren’t going to kill it, Scorpio. It simply means that different people have different ideas about things (obvs). This morning you could clash with someone over an issue that’s important to both of you. If you can’t reconcile, table it! Later in the day, one of you may have a change of heart. And if not, let it go and move onto subjects that fall into the category of common ground.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Tuesday September 5
Keep your proboscis in your own business this morning, Archer. You have a lot to offer, but not everyone is buying what you’re selling. Or maybe they’re just not ready to hear your sage words. Besides, with a practical Taurus moon powering up your efficient sixth house, you can get a ton of work done if you stay focused! In the afternoon, when la luna grooves into Gemini and your seventh house of partnerships, you could benefit from buddying up with a fellow dynamo at work.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Tuesday September 5
Give your imagination free rein this morning, Capricorn, and table the detailed work for the afternoon. A Taurus moon in your creative fifth house is stimulating your imagination in ways that need to be expressed. It’s also a great time for a heart-to-heart, especially if you’ve been feuding with a loved one. How about a “hug it out” breakfast before work? This afternoon, when la luna zips into analytical Gemini and your efficient sixth house, you can return to your regularly scheduled, more business-oriented programming.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Tuesday September 5
Don’t let the morning’s heavy vibes bring you down, Aquarius. This is the last push of a moody Taurus moon in your family sector, and residuals of a disagreement with a relative or roomie might be lingering in your psyche. Distract yourself with the pile of work at hand and hang in there. This afternoon, la luna grooves into social Gemini and your fun-loving fifth house. The clouds will part, your sense of humor will return, and before you know it, you’ll be back in a creative groove—or spontaneously saying yes to meeting up IRL with a date.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Tuesday September 5
Your intuitive sign knows to trust your gut better than almost anyone, Pisces, but emotions can cloud your judgment. Early in the day, don’t rely on hunches. Do some digging and get the facts—especially if you’re working on a team project. Turn to experts and reliable sources (not just a random Google search) for all your data. This afternoon, la luna shifts into Gemini and your sentimental fourth house. Not feeling like tuning in for that happy hour? NP! It’s your prerogative to head home and have whatever you want, including nothing.
