Your daily horoscopes for Wednesday September 6, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Wednesday September 6
Shortcuts won’t get you there any faster today, Aries, so lean in to your patience. With retrograde Mercury mashed up with the straightforward Sun in your systematic sixth house today, you’re at least five steps ahead of the competition. And while you’re eager to grab that metaphoric pot of gold, you don’t want to miss out on the joy of the journey itself. Slow down, follow the proper steps and protocols and savor the ride!
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday September 6
No Bull is an island, and that goes double under today’s mashup of the blazing Sun and mental Mercury, which is retrograde in your passionate fifth house. While you’re eager to dive into a creative initiative or take a major next step in love, there are a few more factors to consider. How do your inner circle, S.O. and family feel about your plans? And if they are behind it, have you lined up proper support? Take time to dot those last “i”s and cross any final “t”s.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday September 6
As eager as you are to forge ahead, that may not be possible today. Thanks to an agitating mashup of the Sun and Mercury retrograde, plans that were green-lit become bound up in red tape. Slowing down is irritating, but you know what’s worse? Having to undo all your hard work later because you didn’t get the proper permits or sign-offs. Forget going rogue, Gemini, and embrace the process!
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday September 6
Today’s mashup of the ego-driven Sun and analytical Mercury retrograde sheds light on a blessing in disguise. Sometimes the greatest lessons come not from your successes but your mistakes. We realize that’s not your cautious sign’s favorite thing to hear, but you ARE human, which means it’s inevitable that not every pitch you hit is going to yield a home run. See what valuable teaching can be gleaned from a recent misstep—if you can humble yourself.
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday September 6
It’s hard to gauge a proper excitement level today as the enthusiastic Sun and analytical Mercury retrograde meet up in your pragmatic second house. Take a little extra time to really think through your next move. You might feel like you’ve got this completely nailed down, yet one final review could reveal where you’ve actually overlooked an important detail. If you recheck and still don’t see anything, ask an informed person to run one last pair of eyeballs over it. Better safe than sorry!
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday September 6
Deliver your message carefully today as the confidence-boosting Sun gets caught in the crosshairs of Mercury retrograde. It’s not that you should water down what you have to say. But DO think about how it will sound to people who are new to the subject matter or might not have the backstory of how you arrived at your conclusion. Sharing the “why” behind your sentiment can be a great translation tool.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Wednesday September 6
Fact blurs with fiction today thanks to a befuddling mashup of the Sun and Mercury retrograde in your foggy twelfth house. Frankly, you might not care if you’re brokering in reality or not—as long as you’re enjoying the ride! Go ahead and take a little detour, Libra: Just hold off on making any irrevocable decisions until both feet are back on solid ground.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Wednesday September 6
Under today’s mashup of the ego-driven Sun and mental Mercury (retrograde) in your collaborative eleventh house, frustration with a team effort could set in. Someone may seem to be slacking, but perhaps they aren’t clear on deliverables. Take the high road and give them a chance to correct their mistakes. Hold them accountable while boosting their confidence with helpful tips and words of affirmation.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Wednesday September 6
You’re ready to grab the bull by the horns today, but before you rush headlong into something that’s above your pay grade, stop and get the lay of the land. This isn’t about your vision—that’s rock-solid. But you also should have a mapped-out game plan for accomplishing it. On top of that, reaching out to others for needed support isn’t a sign of weakness but of wisdom. Many hands WILL make light work—and make the project a whole lot more fun!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Wednesday September 6
Today’s eye-opening mashup of the creative Sun and Mercury (retrograde) in your expansive ninth house helps you see far beyond your assumptions and tap into a deeper vision. People might surprise you if given half a chance. Approach the world with a wide-open mind and be prepared to discover something completely off your radar.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Wednesday September 6
Today’s rule: No more secrets! You may think you’re being clever or shrewdly getting around a roadblock, but in reality, anything that’s not 100 percent aboveboard can come back to haunt you. With mental Mercury retrograde greeting the Sun in your secretive eighth house, it’s better to bite the bullet and deal with the consequences than risk being considered unethical. When you’re not sure if you’re being sneaky or strategic, think how YOU’D feel if the tables were turned.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Wednesday September 6
Plot twist! A seemingly predictable partnership could head into uncharted waters today as Mercury retrograde meets the Sun in Virgo. This isn’t a bad thing! Assumptions and expectations can take the joy out of the getting-to-know-you process—and they can be the horsemen of long-term relationships. Backtrack a few steps and realign. Shifting roles might be better for both of you.
