Your daily horoscopes for Saturday May 6, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Saturday May 6
The day could get off to a slow and introspective start with the moon in Scorpio and your private eighth house, so ease into the day at a gentle pace. But once luna shifts into your ninth house of adventure midafternoon, you’ll have an urge to explore some new terrain—on both the literal and metaphysical planes. Keeping a positive perspective will help you see the beauty in the basic. Struggling to get there? Take a moment to feel gratitude for the things you take for granted in your daily life. You’ll also feel a pull toward creating something epic and next-level. But to avoid getting overwhelmed before you’ve started, remind yourself that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a SINGLE step, not a 10K.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Saturday May 6
Partnerships are the theme of the weekend, and once the moon leaves sultry Scorpio and moves into Sagittarius and your eighth house of wealth and joint resources this afternoon, you’re serious about pairing up! It’s time to put your capitalizing cap on and think about the best ways to maximize your assets. Simultaneously, you need to face the music of any accumulated debts. How much borrowing power do you have? If big money moves are on your mind, this is a great day to start investigating further. Who knows? You could be meeting with a mortgage broker or filling out paperwork for an SBA loan before the day is through. Joining forces with an investor or using the barter system may also open doors.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Saturday May 6
Handle those errands early today while the moon’s in Scorpio and your admin center because once the moon shifts into your seventh house of relationships later in the afternoon, love looms large. As the resident twin of the zodiac, you love to have a partner in crime for every activity. However, you can get a little gun-shy when the demands become “too intense.” But what are people REALLY expecting of you? Find out! It’s better than acting on a knee-jerk reaction to pull away—which only drives up insecurity and neediness in your “other.”
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Saturday May 6
Today’s hair-of-the-dog brunch toast could morph into a weekend health quest by mid-afternoon as the moon leaves Scorpio and your party zone and heads into vitality-boosting Sagittarius and your salubrious sixth house. Listen to your body. If something feels off, don’t just chalk it up to a crappy night’s sleep. Try to locate the emotional source of your physical discomfort. What’s on your mind that you haven’t wanted to look at? Getting real about this can lift some burden.
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Saturday May 6
Feel free to luxuriate in your lair for the first half of today while the moon’s in Scorpio and your domesticity zone, but don’t make the mistake of canceling your evening plans. Once the moon heads into Sagittarius that afternoon, the pleasure principle will be alive and well for the rest of the weekend. Leos will effortlessly draw the spotlight, giving people a lot to talk about. Why not direct the conversation? Under these awakened skies, conversations will be rich and philosophical. While you might not create world peace, you could attract some fascinating people who vibe at your level.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Saturday May 6
Today is off to a social start while the moon lingers in Scorpio and your buzzy third house. But while you’re vibing with friends over brunch, don’t lock yourself into any evening plans! Once the moon heads into indie-spirited Sagittarius midday, you may wish for nothing more than time at home, where you can putter about and work on your 1,001 projects. Feelings will be more tender than usual for the rest of the weekend. Don’t be afraid to say no to any offers that could trigger your sensitivities. And when you need a second opinion, DON’T ask the most critical person in your crew.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Saturday May 6
Say it loud and proud, Libra, but don’t stop there! Midday, the moon pulls up stakes from Scorpio and heads into outspoken Sagittarius and your third house of communication. This inspires you to share your message in creative ways. Put fingers to keyboard (or voice to mic) to broadcast your fascinating viewpoints. Dynamic duos get a boost, so why not ask your witty, intellectual friend to be your partner on this project? People will love to hear your banter! Pondering a wilder venture? Before you start investing resources, run this by a voice of reason.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Saturday May 6
The moon lingers in Scorpio for the first half of the day, putting you in a whimsical headspace. But don’t ignore every invite that buzzes in your group text thread. Before nightfall, la luna heads into adventurous Sagittarius for the rest of the weekend, and you’ll be up for something off the beaten path. Say yes to a plan to slip out of town or snag VIP seats that just went on last-minute sale.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Saturday May 6
If you woke up in a funk today, don’t despair. Some buried feelings need airtime and it’s worth investigating them. You’ll be back to your hopelessly optimistic self by the afternoon, once the moon leaves Scorpio and your introspective twelfth house and heads into Sagittarius for the rest of the weekend, restoring faith in your abilities. Being interested AND interesting is a double-edged sword because it means you usually have a gazillion things on the boil. Don’t dismiss them as too hard or half-baked. Instead of spreading yourself thin, why not pick a select few projects that you feel passionate about and focus your energy there?
Capricorn (December 22-January 18) daily horoscope for Saturday May 6
You’re one of the more masterful signs when it comes to instilling boundaries, but once the moon leaves Scorpio and your collaborative eleventh house and sinks into your susceptible twelfth house this afternoon, you won’t spot an energy vampire with your usual alacrity. Don’t be roped in by someone’s sob story or take on obligations that aren’t yours. Stick close with your loyal squad and see who’s up for an epic night of live music and dancing. Behold the power of two!
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Saturday May 6
Wrap up any leftover duties from the workweek as fast as you can! Late afternoon, the moon leaves Scorpio and your professional tenth house and heads into savvy Sagittarius, energizing your eleventh house of connectivity and networking for the rest of the weekend. This is bound to awaken your enterprising side—and with your sign’s affinity for tech, you could discover a new virtual platform to help you reach your goals. Make time for agenda-free socializing too. Salt the rims, break out the limes and call it margarita (or mocktail) o’clock.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Saturday May 6
Big ideas flood in fast and furious early today as the moon lingers in Scorpio and your visionary ninth house, but don’t go broadcasting them to the entire world yet. The moon heads into Sagittarius late afternoon, beaming up your “executive suite” (aka the tenth house). While these inspired gems may be a dime a dozen to you, they could be worth a helluva lot more on the open market. Make sure you’re valuing what you have to offer. This would be a great weekend to do some competitive research and see what you might charge for your talents. Beauty is way more than skin deep, which your multifaceted sign knows well.
