Your daily horoscopes for Saturday September 16, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Saturday September 16
Note to Aries: What YOU consider an innocent flirtation might feel like something very different to the object of your attention—and possibly to the object of your affection! Your impulsive sign can be spontaneous and fun-loving, but sometimes your willingness to throw caution to the wind could throw someone else under the bus. This weekend, under a feisty fusion of audacious Jupiter and sensual Venus, you won’t exactly feel like curbing any of your urges. If you’re single and you’re chatting up someone else who is, no harm, no foul. But if either of you have partners, before you take action, think through possible repercussions, both practically and karmically! Apply that same vigilance to your budget. Check the price before you head to the register or start ordering every appetizer on the menu.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Saturday September 16
Where just a few days ago you were looking forward to a weekend group activity, when Saturday dawns, you might be in a very different mood. With your ruler, luxuriating Venus, sprawling in your domestic quarters, you may be most content lounging over coffee and puttering around your pad. Adding to the ennui is the third and last of Venus’s clashes with independent Jupiter in your sign. The idea of having to dress up or be “on” could be the least appealing option you can think of. If you’re not leaving anyone in the lurch, see if you might be able to wriggle out of your obligation and offer a raincheck. Even if you DO meet up with people this weekend, remain as untethered as possible so you can move like a free agent.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Saturday September 16
It may be hard to get clarity around a situation involving one of your peers, and the more attempts you make at subtle sleuthing, the more confused you get! With charming Venus in your communication center, someone might be double-talking or conflating a story beyond the point of figuring out which parts, if any, are true. On top of that, Venus is in a befuddling square with bloviating Jupiter in your hazy twelfth house this weekend. It almost doesn’t matter whether someone is out-and-out lying or just trying to throw you off their scent. The bottom line is that your trust has been dented, and it’s going to take some effort to patch this up. But even if you’re intent on doing that, leave it alone for a couple more days. Chances are the other party doesn’t even realize what they’re doing—or how much it irks you!
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Saturday September 16
Friendships can be tricky enough to navigate without money mucking things up. This weekend, mind your manners and your wallet when you go with groups. A squirrely square between generous Jupiter in your community corner and impractical Venus in your financial sector pretty much insists that you ask for separate checks. It’s not about being cheap or “tit-for-tat,” Cancer. You may have grown increasingly aware that a certain person in your crew never seems to have enough cash or—whoops!—maxed out her credit card (again) this month, and you get stuck covering for them. Clear communication BEFORE your orders are taken will work best. Even if it’s a little awkward, it sure beats subsidizing your pal’s gourmet tastes yet again.
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Saturday September 16
Saturday’s third and final dust-up between Venus and Jupiter could force you to take action on something you’ve been kicking down the road. Expansive Jupiter is powering up your career corner, and it’s probably brought some growth spurts since the transit began on May 16. And yet this on-again-off-again clash with image-conscious Venus—who’s finally out of a long retrograde through your sign—could leave you questioning your ability to assume a leadership role. But think about it objectively, Leo: Other people clearly have confidence in you, or they wouldn’t be pursuing you! When opportunity knocks, answer the door—in your most fashionable power suit! Sometimes you don’t realize how good you’ve gotten until you test your newly acquired superpowers. Carpe diem!
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Saturday September 16
This weekend could bring some blue-sky visions as expansive Jupiter in your wide-angled ninth house forms a third and final square with fantasy-prone Venus in your intuitive twelfth. You may be tapping into some otherworldly realms, and while these notions can feel ecstatic, they might prove to be unrealistic when you attempt to execute them. Go ahead and dream and scheme: These are the seeds of manifesting! But don’t confuse big-picture thinking with actual “doing.” Capture the ideas down to the tiniest detail, but hold off a few days to take anything a step further. When the dust settles, you may have a very different perspective.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Saturday September 16
Zip your lip! This weekend, outspoken Jupiter in your house of intense emotions dukes it out with Venus in your community zone, warning of the need for discretion. Someone might push one of your buttons—hard!–and it may feel near impossible to not react. But in doing so, you’ll only dignify THEIR actions, which is the last thing you want to do. Rather than engage with their provocations, do your best to totally ignore the triggers. While people’s motives might not be malicious, you don’t want to encourage any untoward behavior by giving it attention. Without making it obvious, observe them closely and make sure they’re not up to anything sketchy.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Saturday September 16
It’s not what people, yourself included, are saying that’s troublesome, Scorpio: It’s what’s NOT being said! This weekend, people-pleasing Venus is in your professional tenth house, and it’s locked in a tense square with Jupiter in your partnership zone. Someone may be deliberately covering up a mistake for fear of being judged, but good luck getting them to admit to it. Make sure YOU’RE not the one obfuscating the situation—especially if you’re trying to avoid dealing with other people’s reactions. You’ll have to face that music sooner or later. The longer you wait, the more complicated things may become.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Saturday September 16
Don’t overlook the quiet ones, Sagittarius! Not everyone is as articulate or comfortable expressing themselves as you are, but that doesn’t mean their ideas are any less valuable! In fact, some of them might be buried treasure! This weekend, generous Venus in your broad-minded ninth house nudges your ruler, expansive Jupiter, in your service sector, which is sure to spotlight some people who are toiling silently but productively. Once you hear this wakeup call, do something to acknowledge them, even if it’s just a “thinking of you on the weekend” message or a juicy tip for their work. If you’re particularly close to any of these folks, make a point of checking in with them and seeing if there are uncharted synergies worth exploring.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Saturday September 16
You may FEEL motivated to get a lot done this weekend, but a pretzel-twisting square between wanderlusty Jupiter and hedonistic Venus could seriously derail you. If there are certain boxes you simply have to tick, map out a timeline to ensure you get around to them. You might want to build in mini-rewards to stay on point, like meeting a friend for coffee after you’ve paid some bills and put in a load of laundry. Specific temptation could be coming from Jupiter, who’s shining like a beacon in sensual Taurus and your romance house. It may not be productive energy, but it’ll be great for flexing your flirting muscles! Do so responsibly, however, since Venus’ position in your magnetic eighth house practically guarantees that you’ll draw in the types of people who want to stick around.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Saturday September 16
You love the idea of being free as a bird, but your wings may be clipped this weekend, thanks to a limiting square between wanderlusty Jupiter, who’s stuck in your home zone, versus Venus in your partnership province. Just when you’re gearing up to do something a bit adventurous, your inner circle sends up an SOS, or someone tries to detour you into a guilt trip. You hate to be paranoid, but if this crisis is a bit too familiar, scratch beneath the surface to find out what’s really going on. Perhaps you are being unfairly “controlled,” but could it be that a loved one simply needs a little reassurance from you? By withholding information or refusing to check in, you’re not “standing your ground”; you’re being your own worst enemy. Weigh the costs and benefits. Transparency could be your ticket to greater freedom.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Saturday September 16
With radiant Venus firing up your health-conscious sixth house, you’ve been motivated to up your game and reach for some new wellness goals. This weekend’s stars could bring a unique challenge: Staying the course in the face of new temptations. It’s a fine line between leaning in to your self-discipline (good!) and indulging a deprivation mindset (not good!). On Saturday, Venus gets a nudge from hedonistic Jupiter, who’s dangling wine tastings, food orgies and all-night dance marathons. A little indulgence isn’t the worst thing, but you know that the slope can be slippery. While you’re trying to get traction, you might need to veer a little to the “rigorous” end of the spectrum until you get on track with your new lifestyle. You may have to manage your FOMO, but that’s what willpower (and Netflix) is for!
