Your daily horoscopes for Saturday September 9, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Saturday September 9
You may be the zodiac’s warrior, Aries, but lay down your sword this Saturday. As the Cancer moon in your nurturing fourth house nuzzles the grounded Virgo Sun, it’s safe to show your softer (and sensible) side. Even if you’re tackling a weekend project, don’t make everything strictly business. Connect on a personal level and brandish your sense of humor. Reserve Saturday night for your nearest and dearest, be it with your immediate family or BFF. You’ll be happiest at home, so why not invite them over for dinner? Besides, Chez Aries also provides the necessary privacy to delve into sensitive matters, should you choose to go there. As the moon shifts into playful Leo at 12:36 PM EDT Sunday, it energizes your fifth house of fun—think romance, creativity, dressing up, going out and acting silly. Let your inner wild child lead the way, Aries, and you’re sure to have a good time. In fact, under this lighthearted lunar energy, trying to rein yourself in could cause frustration and inappropriate behavior. So send that steamy Snapchat and stay up past your bedtime. Just state in advance where your limits lie—and don’t exceed them.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Saturday September 9
Pro tip for Saturday: Aim for dialogues, not diatribes. As the Cancer moon in your communicative third house teams up with the Virgo Sun in your passion sector, give yourself a gentle reminder that conversations are a two-way street. Rather than spouting off opinions, focus on really listening to what the other person has to say. Has this all been one big misunderstanding? Highly possible with Mercury deep into its three-week retrograde (August 23 to September 15.) If you jumped to the wrong conclusion, don’t dig yourself in deeper by trying to rationalize it. Just apologize. Missing your inner circle? When the moon swings in Leo on Sunday at 12:36 PM EDT, it activates your fourth house of home and family for the rest of the weekend. If you feel like heading straight from brunch to your favorite pillow pile on the couch, don’t fight the feeling. After a catnap, prep for the busy week ahead by tackling laundry, picking up groceries and other errands you can multitask through while catching up with your relatives.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Saturday September 9
Double-knot those purse strings, Gemini. If you aren’t careful, Saturday’s skies could lead you down a retail-therapy rabbit hole. As the Cancer moon in your decadent second house connects the dots with the Virgo Sun in your emotionally directed fourth, you’ll be weak in the face of fall fashions or anything in the luxury home goods section. Nothing wrong with treating yourself, but check your budget before you go all in on those wedge booties or yet another poured candle from your favorite perfume house. What might you need more than you realize, Gemini? Time with your besties. As the moon heads into lively Leo and your social third house just after noon EDT this Sunday, you’ll be motivated to organize a bit of spontaneous fun. Meet one friend for a quick coffee then take a spin around a park trail with someone else. Upbeat, supportive conversation is all you need to get yourself back to center.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Saturday September 9
Uh-oh, Cancer. Has taking care of everyone else eclipsed your own needs again? You can put a stop to that asap this weekend as the moon hovers in your sign until Sunday at 12:36 PM EDT. Although you’re gifted at intuiting other people’s desires, you can be exceptionally hard to read! Throw your people a bone: Spell out ways you’d like them to support you…and take the resentful edge out of your voice. People can’t please you without clear instructions! When the moon heads into Leo on Sunday afternoon, you’re in get-’er-done mode. With the moon in your industrious second house, you can accomplish a lot! Pick two or three high-priority items and tackle them one by one. Before the weekend is through, you can turn a “to-do” into a “ta-da”!
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Saturday September 9
Fussing over the details again, Leo? You just can’t help yourself this Saturday as the self-conscious Cancer moon connects to the perfectionistic Virgo Sun. But do your best to dial back that pressure. This is a great day to make art for art’s sake, not to fixate on scoring a prestigious gallery exhibition or winning a Pulitzer Prize. Besides, many great masterpieces were created by happy accident rather than intentional control. So take a breath and do what Leos do best: Let your hair down and play! At 12:36 PM EDT this Sunday, the moon officially swings into Leo, charging up your self-authorized first house for two and a half days. If you’ve been polling your friends for advice, take a timeout from soliciting outside feedback. Review the suggestions you’ve accumulated then spend some time thinking about what’s best for you. If there were zero consequences to any choice, which one WOULD you pick? Even if you go a different route, it’s worth asking yourself that question.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Saturday September 9
When Saturday’s moon in your spontaneous eleventh house air-kisses the Virgo Sun, you might do something wildly out of character and trek out without a plan! Under these skies, nothing’s too farfetched or unconventional. Driving 20 miles out of town just to find a farmstand—the one with the perfectly ripened summer fruit? Well, why not? It’s the journey that counts, not just the destination. A thought-provoking conversation en route could get your entrepreneurial wheels spinning. Creative blocks, begone! When the moon slips into Leo just after noon (EDT) on Sunday, a soft touch is far more effective than dishing out tough love. Unless people expressly ask for your advice, stop yourself from spouting off. Start with empathy instead. Ask things like, “How did that make you feel?” and just listen. People will talk themselves into solutions—a much easier “lift” for you!
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Saturday September 9
Think you have a type, Libra? Saturday’s stars could surprise you. Keep your mind wide open while you’re out mingling and don’t pigeonhole yourself when it comes to the types of activities you’re willing to try. If you’re swept up in a great conversation, exchange numbers and make plans to meet for coffee. Coupled Libras could use a dose of adventure. Whether it’s an overnight or just a day trip, a change of scenery provides fresh bonding material. There’s strength in numbers on Sunday once the moon heads into Leo and your collaborative eleventh house at 12:36 PM EDT. You’re more of a “we” than a “me” person by nature—especially when you team up with the right folks. But don’t confuse “right” with “just like me.” Even when you don’t see eye-to-eye, you know there’s value in listening to different points of view. Beneath surface differences lies the potential for brilliant synergy!
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Saturday September 9
Oh joy, Scorpio. You get to be “the responsible one” this Saturday. Fortunately, you won’t mind since you’re actually in the mood to steer the ship. All those books you read, the seminars you attended, the edgy experiences you pushed through: Suddenly the mastery you’ve gained is exactly what is needed. Don’t worry about being judged. You’ll blow people’s minds wide open by sharing your “weird science.” Sunday’s Leo moon serves notice that you have to nurture yourself first or you won’t be much good to ANYONE. Your time is precious, and if you’ve overcommitted yourself, don’t feel guilty bowing out of a thing or three. Envision the kind of day that would make you feel productive, happy and stress-free. It’s okay to diplomatically cancel on people, especially group hangs. And if anyone tries to guilt-trip you, well, those are the last people you should feel bad about ditching.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Saturday September 9
You wouldn’t be a Sagittarius if you didn’t have large-scale goals. But while you’re busy fixating on the future, you could miss some of the magic that’s available at the moment. Try taking a different route to the results this Saturday. Collage images for a vision board or write a list identifying how you’d like to FEEL when you’ve “arrived” at your desired destination. Then think of ways you could tap into that very same mood right now. That will make you a vibrational match for your dreams! Need some time to reconnect to your own thoughts on Sunday? Well, you’re simply going to have to TAKE it. Your calendar isn’t going to have gaping holes all of a sudden—not unless you build them in. Your fast-paced, hyper-stimulated life doesn’t originate “out there.” It’s a product of your need for action and excitement, and here’s a news flash: It NEVER happens without your cooperation. As the me-first Leo moon arrives at 12:36 PM EDT, carve out time to be alone with your thoughts. A solo walk or drive could do your soul a world of good.
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Saturday September 9
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Saturday September 9
Salud, Aquarius! This weekend, slow down your manic pace and fall into a rhythm of savvy self-care. On Saturday, set up your kitchen so your counter is more than just a place to drop the mail when you dash in the door or store your highball glasses. A raw juicer or high-speed blender might be more aptly placed there. If you’re a snacker, reload your fridge with cut veggies and hummus. Sample simple (or complex) recipes on Saturday too—your test kitchen could morph into an impromptu dinner party for a few close friends. On Sunday, you could be forced to admit that there’s too much work to handle yet not enough Aquarius to go around. Call for backup instead of trying to push through like a Marvel superhero. Once the moon heads into Leo just after noon EDT, it lands in your team-spirited eleventh house for two and a half days. If you’ve been scratching your head about ways to afford an upcoming expense, get creative. Pool funds if you’re hoping to buy a shareable item, or see if you can work the barter system to make this happen.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Saturday September 9
With the Cancer moon holding court in your fifth house of romance—and sending a wink to the Virgo Sun in your partnership zone—you could spend half of Saturday in bed, and not necessarily catching up on your beauty rest. This glamorous cosmic confab could lure you out for a fancy brunch date or a Saturday night soiree with a photo booth and a step-and-repeat. Enjoy the arts and have some high-profile fun! The devil may be found in the details, but with the moon activating your minutiae-minded sixth house after 12:36 PM EDT this Sunday, you could beat him at his own game. Your focus is razor-sharp, inspiring you to tackle some of those tasks you push to the perimeters of your patience on an average day. But keep your attention trained on your to-do list instead of getting drawn into helping everyone else. You won’t relax with that pile of laundry or empty fridge hovering in your psyche. When you’re ready for a break, get out in nature and enjoy the last moments of summer!
