Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Saturday January 20
Power up! For the very last time in our lifetimes, the Sun teams up with irresistible Pluto in Capricorn and your tenth house of ambition early Saturday, giving you—and the wider world—a window into your not-so-hidden talents. If you’ve been hoping to take on more responsibility at work or assume a leadership role, use the weekend to prep for a pitch or presentation. But be sure your goals align with your highest values. Pluto’s energy has a cunning edge and can push you to be more competitive than you’re comfortable with. Remember: The end does not always justify the means. Later in the day, the Sun, then Pluto moves on to Aquarius. Networking is key to your success during Aquarius season, which lasts until February 18. And thanks to Pluto, prepare to begin an entirely new chapter of group endeavors. While the mysterious manipulator rolls through Aquarius for essentially 20 years, there may be both supporters and adversaries lurking in your midst who step forward and make themselves known. If you’re ready for a professional pivot, remember that teamwork makes the dream work. Pluto has been making a leader out of you, and you’re capable of making a strong decision about your life path now.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Saturday January 20
Hold your fire! Your words pack more of a punch than you realize this Saturday, thanks to the volatile union of the Sun and powerhouse Pluto in Capricorn and your outspoken ninth house—their final meetup in this sign in your lifetime. You think you’re just “calling it like you see it,” but those may be fightin’ words to somebody else. Your sign has the longest fuse of the zodiac, but when you’re provoked, look out! You might be easily rattled on Saturday, which could cause you to pick a fight. Give people the benefit of the doubt, and presume innocence until they’re proven “guilty.” Later on Saturday, both the Sun and Pluto march on to Aquarius, where they’ll be charging up your tenth house of career. El Sol shines its bright beams there for a month, making you super ambitious. Pluto will, in essence, be parked here for 20 years, which could bring some powerful pivots with your professional path. Step into leadership, Bull, and be a port in the storm for others. And because Pluto will be trekking through social-justice sign Aquarius, your work may involve humanitarian efforts or restorative justice.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Saturday January 20
Watch your back, Gem! On Saturday, the Sun mashes up with piercing Pluto in Capricorn and your nefarious eighth house, shining a glaring light on people’s less than honorable intentions. Pluto, lord of the underworld, rules mystery and behind-the-scenes activities. Trust your gut. If a situation trips your alarm system, don’t just naively go along with the status quo. Do some deep sleuthing—but hold off making any accusations until you have all the cold hard facts. Your outlook gets brighter later on Saturday, when the Sun, then transformative Pluto, steps into Aquarius and your ninth house of growth, optimism and worldly expansion. With el Sol beaming here for a month, write yourself a pass and take a vacation! Pluto’s shift lasts for essentially 20 years and will flood your mind with excitement and hope—a welcome change from the deep, dark thoughts that have preoccupied you for too long. No more hanging with toxic types who suck the life out of you. Now you’re called to propagate possibilities that can make a positive difference in the world. We need optimistic souls who will bring us together, and you fit the bill now!
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Saturday January 20
Are your eyes turning a little green there, Cancer? Saturday’s alignment of the fiery Sun and controlling Pluto in Capricorn and your seventh house of relationships could arouse a bit of envy. Before you lose it on someone you love, do some independent sleuthing. While something may indeed be off, there’s a good chance that you are just craving a little (or okay, a lot) more attention from a certain someone. Feelings may intensify later on Saturday, when the Sun, then alchemical Pluto both change signs, heading into Aquarius and your magnetic, mysterious eighth house. This private corner of your chart governs such profound issues as your psyche, secrets, sexuality, mortality, shared finances, outside resources, obsession and trust…to name a few. The Sun will illuminate some important epiphanies over the coming four weeks. While Pluto’s here for nearly two decades, you may find yourself playing the role of healer or acting as a spiritual guiding light for others. Yes, Cancer, this is a very big deal! A key partnership could deepen over the coming days. Don’t push a good one away!
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Saturday January 20
If you suspect that dodgy activities are going down, part of you wants to be a whistleblower and speak up. But with the Sun mashed up with undercover agent Pluto in Capricorn for the first part of Saturday, there could be more going on than meets the eye. Your best intentions to be helpful could suck you into a situation that’s heavier than you bargained for. Stay out of other people’s romantic entanglements, and if you DO feel an issue needs to be addressed, avoid direct confrontations. Instead, research the proper channels for filing a claim or a report—and consider doing so anonymously if you feel you need to protect your identity. Later this Saturday, the Sun, then Pluto shifts gears, heading into Aquarius and your seventh house of relationships. Finding (and keeping) the right person could become your focus with el Sol here until February 18. But don’t pursue with such intense fervor! Mysterious Pluto, who will be in Aquarius for basically the next two decades, wants you to slow down and ATTRACT ‘em like a magnet. Do you keep drawing in a similar type or repeating the same dynamic over and over? If you’re willing to peer into your own shadows, you could get to the root of this soon!
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Saturday January 20
On Saturday, a sultry sync-up of the fiery Sun and powerhouse Pluto in Capricorn and your fifth house of glamour and fame makes you a head turner of the highest order. You’ve got the power, but you need to wield it carefully. Unless you’re actually interested in someone, go easy on the flirting, or you could lead a poor sucker on. And don’t play games with your sweetie to “test” loyalty. These manipulative maneuvers could backfire, and you’ll be the one left in the cold. Get ready to take a totally different approach to your life in the second half of Saturday as the Sun, then transformational Pluto swings into Aquarius, charging up your work-and-wellness corner. With el Sol here until February 18, your 2024 fitness resolutions kick into gear. But play the long game, too! Pluto’s in Aquarius for essentially 20 years now, which could lead to some profound lifestyle shifts. Scratching the surface won’t cut it with this deep-diving planet, so look beyond the symptoms to identify possible root causes of any aches and pains. Learn about hormones and metabolism and explore holistic healing techniques.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Saturday January 20
Your easygoing sign can turn feisty when you suspect someone is messing with the people you love. Saturday’s mashup of the passionate Sun and possessive Pluto in Capricorn and your domestic fourth house could throw up red flags. A friend OR foe might get busted crossing your line in the sand. Since you could be too emotional to confront this person directly, call a neutral third party who can help you determine the best way to address the issue. And choose your battles! If you blow up about the little things, you won’t have much ground to tread on if something legitimately irritating goes down. Plus you don’t want to ruin the potential fun that awaits later on Saturday, when both the Sun and Pluto march on to Aquarius and your creative, amorous fifth house. Aquarius season, which lasts until February 18, is also high season for love for Libras, and you can get in the spirit by dressing up for a night out…now!

Or you could reach a profound level of fulfillment with your current love interest.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Saturday January 20
The pen—and the voice—are mightier than the sword this Saturday, as your ruler, potent Pluto, syncs up with the Sun in Capricorn for the final time in a 16-year cycle! With your third house of communication getting turbocharged, simply speak your truth without confusing, conflating or manipulating. But make sure you know what you want to say, especially where there’s been conflict brewing. Anger or resentment will only serve to water down your message. Make “grace under fire” your motto. Monumental shifts await later this Saturday when the Sun, then Pluto decamps to Aquarius and your domestic fourth house. Hunker down for hygge season while el Sol beams here through February 18. And with your cosmic custodian now in Aquarius for essentially 20 years, you could feel a strong pull to discover more about your ancestry, unpack intergenerational baggage or get to the bottom of a family secret. If your home doesn’t feel like the sanctuary you long for, explore things like Feng Shui and energetic space clearings to get the energy flowing toward wellness, abundance and joy. Your ruling planet, Pluto, wants you to work with hidden forces and transmute pain into strength.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Saturday January 20
Read the fine print and check those return policies. With Saturday’s enchanting team-up of the Sun and secretive Pluto in Capricorn and your financial zone, the urge to splurge could be downright insatiable. Be it a new piece of furniture or a winter coat, no one can stop you from going on one of your famous treasure hunts when you have a “want-need” vision. The trouble is, you could also develop temporary amnesia about an upcoming bill. Before you let the retail therapy take hold, give your budget a once over—and be strict with yourself about your upper price limit for any purchases you make. Besides, it will soon be people—not things—that bring you the greatest joy! Later this Saturday, both the Sun and Pluto make a major move into Aquarius and your social, cooperative third house. The Sun is there until February 18, brightening your hygge season mingling. Pluto’s tour through Aquarius is for essentially 20 years! Your words carry weight during this cycle, so if you get an urge (or an opportunity) to speak, teach, write or appear in the media, carpe diem! More than ever, with this Pluto position, you can use your voice as a powerful tool—one that creates meaningful transformation in your life and the lives of others.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Saturday January 20
Your magnetism is enchantingly palpable this Saturday, so step up to the mic! For the final (of 16) times in your life, the confidence-boosting Sun unites with potent Pluto in Capricorn and your first house of self-image. Your wish is the world’s command, but use this power judiciously. While people will easily follow your lead, you want to make sure that they have both their heads AND their hearts in the game. If you have a project to promote, do so shamelessly this Saturday, and watch your fan base swell. Later Saturday, you can dial down the intensity as the Sun and Pluto depart for Aquarius and your worth sector. Aquarius season, which lasts until February 18, brings bright opportunities to boost your income. Are your priorities aligned with what is truly most important to you? With Pluto in Aquarius for basically the next 20 years, what you consider valuable may shift. The next two decades are a time for reimagining how you earn a living and strengthening your ability to provide for yourself.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Saturday January 20
Don’t be so quick to trust this Saturday, Aquarius, even if you’re caught up in the magic of the moment. With the Sun aligned with secretive Pluto in Capricorn and your slippery twelfth house, you could put your faith in the wrong folks or get charmed by a slick sales pitch. Run the background checks, but don’t assume it’s worst-case-scenario either. This cosmic coupling CAN bring some miraculous opportunities your way, so be cautiously optimistic. The biggest news of the weekend comes later on Saturday, when the Sun, then Pluto BOTH move into Aquarius! With your birthday season in full swing until February 18, you’ll have renewed optimism about life. And you may be looking in a different, deeper direction to find your bliss, thanks to Pluto moving into your sign for 20 years. And while this chapter of your life is bound to be intense, you’ll also breathe a sigh of relief now that Pluto is finally out of your subliminal twelfth house. The last 15 years brought plenty of plot twists, and now you can take all the spiritual growth and off-the-radar work you’ve accomplished and make a more public splash! Over the next two decades, you could alter your appearance, your body language, your fashion style…maybe even your name!
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Saturday January 20
It’s never a wise move to judge a book by its cover, Pisces. Early Saturday, under a mashup of the Sun and elusive Pluto in your Capricorn and teamwork zone, keep your standards high, but not so high that NOBODY can reach them. Tap Pluto’s charming powers to draw people out of themselves. You might even be surprised by how readily they share their secrets with you. But that won’t even scratch the surface of the depth you can achieve starting Saturday night when the Sun, then Pluto dives into Aquarius and your spiritual twelfth house. With el Sol here until February 18, your dreams will be even richer and symbolic than usual. If you need to grieve a loss or cut ties, this is the moment. Be sure to swaddle yourself in support. But it won’t be a quick, simple process because Pluto always calls us to work with our shadow. As you undergo this internal transformation, shedding skin like a snake, you’ll discover how much you were holding onto that wasn’t serving you. As Pluto plumbs the depths of Aquarius for basically 20 years, you’re entering a cycle where art, spirituality and healing work will take precedence over most everything else.
