Your daily horoscopes for Saturday December 2, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Saturday December 2
You’re the best show in town this Saturday, thanks to an awe-inspiring trine between the fun-loving Sagittarius Sun and the moon in your theatrical fifth house. If you’ve got a message to deliver, wrap it up in clever puns or funny anecdotes and leave people hanging on your every word. Add verbal flourishes, like dramatic language and voices and accents to fully capture everyone’s attention. Just don’t push it into the realm of fiction—you don’t want to blow all the credibility you’ve racked up. A key partnership might hit a big high—or TAKE a hit—under Sunday’s rare and intense face-off between loving Venus in Libra and your dynamic-duos zone and intensifying Pluto. If you’ve been eager to take a budding union to the next level, this could be your moment. But bear in mind that when the alchemical dwarf planet is involved, you can’t always predict the outcome with great accuracy. Don’t be surprised if ghosts from the past come out when you least expect them. Just stay present!
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Saturday December 2
Your sensual sign has no trouble leaning in when you feel close to someone. And during Saturday’s heart-warming trine between the glowing Sun shining in your intimate eighth house and the moon in your cozy fourth, there’s literally no such thing as “too close for comfort.” Are you dying to get even more familiar with someone? Take a little risk and reveal something about yourself. Just be sure to do it in a private exchange—not, say, at a coworker’s holiday party. Sunday’s Venus-Pluto mashup fuels up your fitness game. If you’ve been your own worst enemy about your eating and exercise rituals, this rare planetary pairing could deliver a motivating jolt to your system. With galvanizing Pluto in your action-taking ninth house elbowing beautifying Venus in your wellness corner, it’ll be hard to stick to the status quo. But don’t do anything too drastic, Taurus. The trick is making micro-changes you can incorporate into your lifestyle—and enjoy!
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Saturday December 2
Saturday’s flowing trine between the sensitive moon in your communication zone and the Sun in your partnership center makes it easier to broach a potentially awkward subject with someone you’re close to. But keep at least one kid glove on, Gemini. While the stars support candor, there’s no need to make someone feel bad or uncomfortable about themselves. Imagine how YOU’D feel if another person talked to you that way. Choose your words carefully, and they’ll hit their mark. Real romance or seasonal fling? Not only might it be hard to know under Sunday’s intense alignment of flirtatious Venus in your amorous fifth house and depth-plumbing Pluto in your intimacy zone—YOU might not be sure what you want. One minute you’re playing for keeps, the next you’d rather just play. It’s possible that underlying the confusion is an old, unresolved issue. Hit pause and do a deeper self-inspection. The last thing you want to do is inadvertently hurt someone because of your lack of consistency.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Saturday December 2
Saturday’s uplifting trine between the moon in your financial sector and the Sun in your hard-working sixth house can turn you into a master rainmaker! With both planets in fire signs, you can be a powerful manifestor of new moneymaking opportunities. Now, for the million-dollar question: What do you want to do to earn your pay? While a solid income, benefits and job security are important, you don’t want to feel like you’re living to work rather than working to live. You might experience some emotionally intense interactions with bae or a family member on Sunday, but do your best to not overreact or get sucked into the drama. Under a potent mashup of compassionate Venus in your domestic quarters and shadowy Pluto, someone might project their fears or insecurities onto you. If you know ahead of time, you’ll be better prepared to not take their bait. And whatever happens, Crab, make sure it’s not YOU hitting below the belt!
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Saturday December 2
As your bold sign knows, a little shameless self-promotion isn’t a bad thing, Leo: If you’re not willing to promote your passion projects once in a while, who will? Saturday’s starmap offers a powerful opportunity to get your name out there with your cosmic custodian, the Sun, in your fame zone aligned with the dramatic moon in your sign. Find the most important piece of your message and the aspects that most people can relate to most. Put it out on the interwebs and ask friends to help you spread the word. Your words pack a powerful punch this Sunday, Leo, so watch what comes out of your mouth—and your typing fingers! A rare and agitating square between (normally) diplomatic Venus in Libra and your communication center and penetrating Pluto can add more bite to your bark than you intend. Resist engaging in gossip, no matter how juicy. Even when you’re sharing about yourself, stay conscious. Under these squirrely skies, loose lips really can sink ships!
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Saturday December 2
Did you inadvertently invite people to treat you like an unpaid life coach? It might feel that way on Saturday as one person after another texts to “run something by you.” Eek! Not only are you not in the mood for such confessions (let alone so many), but you’re dealing with your own stuff. Suggest they take you out for dinner if they want to bend your ear. That should screen all but the most serious (and mutual-minded!) contenders. Sunday’s edgy starmap might force you to choose between sticking to your meticulously choreographed game plan and veering off the main track to put out a fire or help a friend in need. When it comes to pitching in and performing random acts of service, no one touches you, Virgo. But the important question to ask is: How serious is this “crisis”? With shadowy Pluto in your house of drama squaring off with tender-hearted Venus in your pragmatic second house, you don’t want to be a first responder to a false alarm.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Saturday December 2
You won’t have to work hard to call in collaborators this Saturday, Libra. A flowing angle between the Sun in your social sphere and the moon in your teamwork sector draws people to you like catnip. (Just watch out for feral kitties with unclipped claws.) Not everyone will be a keeper, of course. But you still need to kiss a lot of proverbial frogs before you find your regent. A good way to meet truly kindred spirits is by joining groups engaged in things you care about. At least that way you’ll have a solid foundation. Sunday’s irascible clash between your ruling planet, (normally) tactful Venus, in your sign and control freak Pluto could make you a bit willful or defiant with close friends or bae. What’s THAT about? Weirdly, you might not be able to answer that yourself. No one loathes conflict or confrontation more than you, Libra. You may have to settle for watching your tongue, being quick to apologize and, in quiet moments, engaging in some deep self-reflection.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Saturday December 2
Been mulling a move that involves a little gamble, Scorpio? Knowing you, this isn’t a wild hare that came out of left field but a meaningful idea you’ve been playing out in your head for some time. So it should come as happy news that Saturday’s auspicious Sun-moon trine supports taking (calculated) risks and bodes well for success. Only thing missing is putting the idea into action. You’re as ready as you’ll ever be! You might not be on the same page as certain other people this Sunday, Scorpio, and all the pushing, prying and persuading in the world won’t get you in sync. So save yourself some major frustration by simply accepting that you can’t agree—or get along—with everyone all the time. With values-driven Venus in your unconscious twelfth house facing off with your ruler, inscrutable Pluto, in your expressive third house, keep those snarky comebacks to yourself lest they come back to haunt you!
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Saturday December 2
Telling the truth is your calling card in life, Archer, but Saturday’s candid starmap could unhinge your jaws and loosen your lips in an extra intense way. Pay attention to your words before you utter (or post) them because you might be a little too liberal with your truth hammers. With the unconscious moon in your blunt ninth house—the one associated with your sign—aligned with the Sagittarius Sun, your aim of honesty could miss its mark and cut someone to the quick. Rewind and be kind! While we would never attempt to rein in any Sagittarius’ dreams, Sunday’s stars do come with a “pie-in-the-sky” advisory. Thanks to a clash between creative Venus in Libra and your innovative eleventh house and sharp-edged Pluto in your grounded second house, it’s a valuable exercise to run some of those big ideas through the reality filter. Whether it’s taking an epic trip, launching a brilliant (but risky) startup or a dubious hookup, think twice and maybe thrice before going all in.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Saturday December 2
Don’t push yourself if you’re not feeling super-motivated on Saturday, Capricorn. Your driven sign is an impressive self-starter, but even you have your slow days. And with the Sun and moon sweetly aligned in your quietest, most introspective houses, you might find that you prefer devoting your energy to creative pursuits rather than hard-hitting action. Peel off any time you can find for all-important self-care, like getting a massage or another kind of bodywork to recharge your batteries. You don’t have to go along with the pack if their ideas don’t resonate with you this Sunday, Capricorn. With auspicious Venus sailing through Libra and your tenth house of professional ambition, you’ve got a clear vision about the best path forward. Yet the cosmic creatrix is in a harsh angle with master manipulator Pluto. Keep your antennae up for anyone who attempts to cajole or strong-arm you into doing something you know isn’t in your—or the team’s—best interests.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Saturday December 2
News alert: Sometimes groups can be intimidating even to social-maven you, Aquarius, but if you want to get involved with one, you need to find a comfortable way to interact. Under Saturday’s harmonious Sun-moon alignment in your people houses, reframe your thinking about a certain squad. Rather than see them as an impenetrable entity, think of them as a collection of individuals. Single out the friendliest, most accessible-looking face in the crowd and chat them up. From there, making inroads won’t seem so daunting. Sunday’s jarring alignment of social Venus in your expansive ninth house and alchemical Pluto in your twelfth house of introspection and healing might make a professional or relationship situation feel overwhelming. You can run, Aquarius, but you can’t hide, so don’t even bother trying to give a looming issue the slip. Rather than focusing on the uncomfortable aspects, follow deep-diving Pluto’s lead and take a good hard look at what’s underlying this feeling. This could turn out to be a blessing in disguise!
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Saturday December 2
Responsibilities take priority over fun on Saturday as the moon in your sixth house of duty and service fist-bumps the action-oriented Sun in your tenth house of achievement. You might have to make a monumental decision, which could be freaking you out a bit. But don’t go into a fishtail-spin, Pisces. Are you forgetting how brilliant and on-target your intuition always is? Crunch the numbers and play out the possible ramifications but then tune inward. The sensations that arise—and maybe words or images—will lead you to the right decision. A trust issue might rear its irritating head on Sunday as penetrating Pluto in your house of friends and colleagues clashes with vulnerable Venus in your intimacy zone. You might feel like you’re being pushed to share something with a person you’re not totally comfortable with, or someone might betray your confidence. Either way, it’s an unpleasant feeling, and your sensitive sign isn’t sure how to handle it. While honesty is the best policy, there’s another old chestnut you’d do well to bear in mind today: Silence is golden.
