Your daily horoscopes for Tuesday May 9, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 9
Today’s Sun-Uranus mashup helps you improve your fiscal fitness—but that means actually sitting down and crunching some numbers. This may not be your favorite activity, but burying your head in the sand will not balance your books. Start by getting real about your status and then play “bad cop” with yourself about where you could tighten your belt. In addition to trimming expenses, think about how you can rake in more moolah through a side hustle or freelance work.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 9
You say you want a revolution? Your request might be granted today, Bull—but be careful what you wish for! The winds of change are at gale-force levels as the Sun and unpredictable Uranus hold their annual summit in Taurus and your first house of identity. You’re not one to suppress your own needs on a regular basis, but what have you been keeping at a simmer on the back burner? That’s the thing to turn the heat up on. Don’t be afraid to be a little outrageous. You could create something truly iconic.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 9
Today marks a rare and potent cosmic concord, but it’s up to you to take advantage of it. The ego-driven Sun meets up with radical Uranus in Taurus in your twelfth house of the unconscious and healing. If you’re ready to face an old wound or negative behavior pattern, the stars offer you extra incentive to unpack them. Make sure you have lots of support around you since these kinds of issues are like unexpected triggers and Achilles heels rolled into one! Pay attention to your dreams: Psychic messages could come through.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 9
Today you’ll take social networking to a whole new level as the Sun dances its annual do-si-do with radical Uranus in Taurus and your eleventh house of group activity. This is the planet of humanity, innovation and technology, and that means the miles between you and your squad do not have to stand in the way of a lively gathering. Fire up the webcams and bring your favorite people together on-screen for a watch party or Zoom crafting night. Good humor is a must!
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 9
Energy around work peaks for you today as the luminous Sun forms its annual alliance with transformational Uranus in Taurus, your tenth house of career ambition and success. With side-spinning Uranus in the picture, innovative ideas flow in a mile a minute. Explore ways that you can use technology to boost your income or level up the job you do. But look out for anything that is exciting but destabilizing. The last thing you need right now is to add extra chaos to your life.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 9
Today, the life-giving Sun forms its annual alignment with unbridled Uranus in Taurus and your ninth house of expansion and adventure. Being cautious is one thing, Virgo, but are you limiting yourself in the process? Your mind will be wide open when it comes to anything new. Comfort zone, what’s that?! You might even check out a new philosophy or spiritual creed. Don’t stress about the “obligations.” The point is to sample and explore, not sign up for a lifetime membership…at least not today.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 9
Your love life swerves into highly seductive terrain today as the radiant Sun hooks up with revolutionary Uranus in Taurus and your eighth house of intimacy and eroticism. Couples can take a deeper dive into some uncharted waters during this transit. As long as you’re both cool with the exploration, there’s no reason NOT to go there. Single Libras should widen their search parameters and stay open to chatting with people from different area codes. You might have a romantic journey to book sooner than expected.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 9
Someone you consider a partner—a lover, colleague or creative collaborator—may catch you off-guard with an idea. It’s “one of those days” as the Sun slams into capricious Uranus in Taurus and activates your seventh house of one-on-one relationships. This person may have gotten some big news themselves that involves you. Or your S.O. might have a romantic candlelit dinner prepared with a very special bottle waiting to be uncorked. Even if the events of the day are unnerving at first, sit tight. There’s sure to be a silver lining!
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 9
Swap out your third latte for a calming herbal tea today. You’ve got a lot on your plate and can’t risk having the jitters. You’ll need to stay on your game and present a calm, cool front. That could be a little challenging since the Sun is entangled with frenetic Uranus. This might heap on more stress than usual and prompt you to do something without fully thinking it through. Ground yourself before any major interactions and don’t let little comments blow you off course.
Capricorn (December 22-January 18) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 9
Today, the life-giving Sun syncs up with transformational Uranus in Taurus and your fifth house of lust, originality and romance. Single? You could swipe right on someone whose conversational skills match their thirst-inducing photos. Even if this doesn’t turn into a keeper relationship, it can open jammed floodgates! Already found your special someone? Keep yourselves engaged with a creative project, whether you’re building raised beds for a vegetable garden or trying out some new moves on your pillow-top mattress.
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 9
You’re ready and able to make some big changes in your personal life today as the Sun and emancipated Uranus align in your fourth house of home and family. Has an energy vampire infiltrated your inner circle? Examine your own codependent role in the relationship, then phase this person out for good. If it’s a family member you can’t just vanish on, set a new boundary. They may not like it, but if you can give them a good reason why, they’ll have to respect it.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Tuesday May 9
Today, the Sun teams up with transformational Uranus in your third house of ideas and communication, so stay open to those aha moments that turn your life around, Pisces. The most innocent-seeming conversation could spark a life-changing “violet light” moment. Don’t edit what pops into your head. Share these potentially million-dollar notions. That said, you might not want to invest your life savings in any of them until you’ve done the appropriate R+D.
