Your daily horoscopes for Saturday September 2, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Saturday September 2
Feeling stuck? With the emotional moon and healing Chiron aligned in Aries on Saturday, you’re ready to move past that block. But first, deal with your feelings. Though you claim to fear failure, you might actually be apprehensive about success. It’s not uncommon. With every victory comes new responsibilities, and that can be daunting. But don’t forget, Aries: You’re not in it alone. Bolster yourself with support, and you’ll ascend to this new phase with ease. This Sunday, Cupid’s got some explaining to do! For the past six weeks, amorous Venus has been retrograde in Leo, muddling matters in your fifth house of love. Even in the tightest relationships, a touch of “it’s complicated” could have set in. Perhaps you had second thoughts about an attraction, or maybe the retrograde heralded the surprising return of an ex. Now Venus mercifully ends this chaotic cycle, lifting the fog around your love life. You can trust your gut to steer you in the right direction once again. Creatively and stylistically, your instincts sharpen. Start implementing some of the ideas that have been hanging out on your Pinterest boards.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Saturday September 2
Forgiveness can feel like the f-word to you, Taurus, since you like to have the final word AND, yes, the upper hand. But on Saturday, you can see the limits of holding onto a grudge and the toxic influence that anger has on your own life. Let it go, even if the person you’re mad at hasn’t officially apologized. Perhaps they weren’t capable of living up to the expectations you set. If nothing else, it’s time to stop ruminating on the conflict and turn your attention elsewhere. On Sunday, harmony’s incoming! Peacekeeper Venus (your cosmic custodian) ends a six-week retrograde, which has stirred up discord with your inner circle since July 22. Petty arguments and misunderstandings flared up a little too easily, and your moods were all over the map. This low-power mode may have caused family bickering or a lack of coziness at your abode. Now you can sweep away those bad vibes and extend an olive branch to your clan. If you’ve been considering a home makeover, it’s safe to try a new paint color or summon your inner decorator. With Venus direct, you can be assured that you won’t coat the walls in a hideous hue or end up with buyer’s remorse over that new (non-returnable) leather sectional.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Saturday September 2
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Saturday September 2
A heart-to-heart with a key figure in your life could go surprisingly well this Saturday, especially if you’ve sensed an undercurrent of competition. But this conversation is best had on neutral ground. Opt for a relaxed setting and treat for lunch or a coffee break. Head’s up: You might have to offer the first olive branch to heal the rift. If you sense that a client or your boss isn’t fully satisfied, don’t wait for them to lodge a complaint. Find out what you could do differently to improve your work. Better to know now while you have a chance to fix it. Reassess your values this Sunday! What (and who!) you treasured six weeks ago might be very different from what you’re prioritizing today. The reason? On July 22, luxurious, seductive Venus turned retrograde in Leo and your second house. In this work- and money-driven zone of your chart, you may have been out of sync with your colleagues. Perhaps a financial crunch or a demanding project cut into your time for self-care. With Venus resuming forward motion today, you can start attracting money and opportunity once again. Now that’s welcome news!
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Saturday September 2
A change of scenery can revive your sense of wonder this Saturday, even if you’re simply changing your morning routine. You could discover a great little breakfast spot, community theater or a park you never noticed before. Have you been aching for time with a faraway friend or relative? Follow the nostalgic vibes and get a visit planned. Should you see a great deal on fares, don’t even hesitate. Book it, Leo! Major revelations about what—and possibly WHO—you need in love could start to get clarified on Sunday as Venus resumes forward motion. The planet of beauty, harmony and amour has been retrograde since July 22, backing up through YOUR sign. This may have caused setbacks in your love life or perhaps the return of an ex. Some Leos just didn’t feel at your personal best while radiant Venus was in reverse, and you may have become excessively self-critical. Good news: Venus turns direct (forward), giving you extra dazzle and allure that stretches all the way until October 8. It’s a perfect time for a style revamp or a fresh start in romance. Pro tip: This round, you may need to compromise LESS.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Saturday September 2
The moon and deep-diving Chiron align in your erotic eighth house this Saturday, writing a prescription for sexual healing. First step: Slow down! It’s hard to get in the mood when you’re stressed out and rushing around. Plus you could buzz right by an interesting prospect. Bring some sensual movement into your day, from sunrise yoga flow to a clothing-optional dance break in your living room. Feeling in tune with your own body gets you in the mood to share it with someone else. Turbulent emotions settle down on Sunday, and what a relief it will be! You’re not usually the melodramatic type, but the past few weeks could have made a soap opera star out of anyone. On July 22, harmonizer Venus turned retrograde in Leo and your house of hidden agendas and rest. This cycle might have revealed an untrustworthy person or given you a serious case of burnout. Shake off those blues and blahs today: Venus powers into direct (forward) motion. While you still need to take things slow and steady for another month, at least your efforts to heal or confront a difficult situation won’t be in vain.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Saturday September 2
Relationship repair time! Saturday’s union of the emotional moon and healing Chiron helps you mitigate tension with someone you love. The connection has felt off-balance for a while, so examine your own expectations and demands. Instead of splitting everything 50/50, it might be better to divvy up duties that are in each of your wheelhouses. Take turns shouldering the burden of tasks neither of you enjoys, or, better yet, how about outsourcing to a third party? Hiring that monthly landscaping service, say, will be worth the price of peace. Collaborations get another helpful cosmic boost on Sunday as your harmonizing ruler, Venus, wraps up a six-week retrograde through Leo and your eleventh house of teamwork. Since July 22, it’s been hard to know who’s on your side. Close confidantes might have morphed into frenemies, and getting consensus on anything may have been a total uphill battle. (Does the term “herding cats” mean anything to you?) Today, Venus powers forward in direct motion, smoothing out group dynamics and reviving cooperative spirits. Your love life also picks up steam, setting the stage for a long-overdue romantic rendezvous in the days ahead.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Saturday September 2
News alert: Suffering is optional. As the moon and healing Chiron sync up in your wellness zone on Saturday, stop ignoring that little ache or pain, or the spikes and crashes to your energy. Book an appointment with a doctor, herbalist or acupuncturist. Your body may simply be out of balance and in need of some fine-tuning from the pros. Feeling good? Explore a soulful fitness modality like yoga with chanting or a mantra-based workout. The link between mind and body is real, Scorpio. Change your thoughts to release stress and you’ll feel the benefits! On Sunday, the fog that’s been blanketing your Big Goals begins to lift. TBH, creating a clear future has been difficult for the last six weeks, with Venus retrograde in Leo and your aspirational tenth house. As the aesthetically minded planet resumes forward motion this Sunday, you’ll find it easier to discern the forest from the trees. Couples can get back on the same page as their mates, and single Scorpios may clarify what they want for the long haul. If there’s been tension with a co-worker or delays with a creative project, those should clear up as well. A helpful ally may open the doors to opportunity. Ping the powerful people in your life and see if they’re working on any projects that could use support from someone like you.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Saturday September 2
Looking for love in a hopeless place? On Saturday, face down your (incredibly human) tendency to be drawn into drama. The intensity of an unpredictable attraction CAN feel exciting…at first. But then there’s the crash that inevitably follows. Make sure you aren’t investing all your time into relationships that have no real future. And if new friends aren’t reciprocating as you’d hoped, put your energy into scouting out new people—ones who have time for you! Coupled Archers, don’t pick a fight to get your thrills; plan an adventurous date instead. Seeing the big picture becomes easier on Sunday. Since July 22, Venus, the planet of beauty and love, has been retrograde in your ninth house of expansion and big-picture visions (aka “the Sagittarius house.”). While it hasn’t entirely derailed you, one of your lofty goals may have experienced a few setbacks. Fortunately, Venus resumes direct motion today, giving your startup ventures a surge of positive energy. Even if you had the best intentions, some of your online commentary may have rubbed people the wrong way. Now Venus resumes her social graces, gilding your more outspoken words with the right dose of diplomacy. Effective activism: restored!
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Saturday September 2
Not another coffee run, Capricorn! If energy is lagging today, don’t keep pushing through with a strong brew. What you need is a legit break or even a siesta. Your brain actually works better with a refreshing little rest in the early afternoon. If you can’t chill all day, step out for some fresh air and a protein-rich lunch like a salmon-avocado salad. On that note, keeping a food journal today can be illuminating. Write down what you eat and track how you feel an hour later. You might try eliminating a suspicious substance from your diet for a week or two and see if your vitality improves. On Sunday, you’ll hit your limit with people’s ridiculous power plays. Since July 22, amorous Venus has been retrograde in Leo and your controlling, manipulative eighth house. This caustic U-turn might even have brought out a domineering or jealous streak in some Sea Goats along with a possible “sex with an ex” reunion between the sheets. You may have run your relationships with an iron fist, keeping a watchful eye on your mate or a close person in your life. If old trust issues surfaced, hopefully you used the planetary backspin to work those through. Now that Venus resumes direct (forward) motion, you can repair any rifts in your bonds or move forward with more reliable candidates.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Saturday September 2
Not getting what you want out of other people? Don’t play the blame game, Aquarius. On Saturday, the moon and healing Chiron team up in your communication house, illuminating new ways to approach the situation. It’s kind of like that “I’m the rubber, you’re the glue” song from childhood. What you’re saying—and the way you’re saying it—is bouncing back to you. Maybe you’ve been abrupt or overly formal with a friend, which would explain the chilly response. If you’re wondering what’s up, start with this question, “Did I do something to offend you?” The answer may be jarring, but relax. Your innocent mistake is not beyond repair. On Sunday, love planet Venus ends a challenging six-week retrograde that sent ripples through your partnership zone. Seeing eye-to-eye with a love interest has been dicey since July 22, when Venus started her reverse commute. Perhaps you bickered more or just didn’t feel a strong attraction—or realized you were ready for something totally different. An ex may have resurfaced, confusing matters even further. Don’t worry, Water Bearer: You haven’t lost that lovin’ feeling entirely. With Venus resuming direct (forward) motion today, you should find it easier to connect and get back on the same page, especially while Venus is lingering in Leo until October 8.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Saturday September 2
Money can be a touchy subject, Pisces, but Saturday’s union of the moon and Chiron “the wounded healer” asteroid helps you work through awkwardness and achieve understanding. Are you picking up the tab for something that should actually be a shared expense? Or maybe you’re feeling uncomfortable that a friend always treats you and you’re not financially able to return the favor in kind. Have you been undercharging a long-term client? Don’t let worries like this stew in the back of your mind. Creative solutions await—and quite possibly a pay increase if you lay your truth on the table. Reserve Sunday for an inside-out cleanup mission. Since July 22, Venus has been retrograde in Leo, backing through your sixth house of health and organization and creating chaos in your space. Perhaps it’s work clutter or just a bit of worldly fatigue, but you may have been too emotional to keep up with your more meticulous routines. Today, Venus powers forward into direct motion, ending this cycle. Go ahead and invest in a new shelving unit or hire a company to do a deep clean. Clear out your kitchen cabinets and fill them with fresh, healthy fare. If you endured a rocky relationship patch, your closest connections can get back on track.
