Your daily horoscopes for Saturday December 9, 2023
Aries (March 21-April 19) daily horoscope for Saturday December 9
Infatuation could teeter into obsession this weekend as a Venus-Jupiter opposition makes you so preoccupied with a situation that you can’t focus on anything else. Under normal circumstances, you’re able to step back whenever that fixated energy takes over. But under these all-consuming skies, you might struggle to ground yourself in reality. If you find that you’re falling down the rabbit hole, get your mind off this matter by embracing the mundane. Vacuum, do the laundry or handle an easy task. By rooting yourself in life’s simplicities, this thorny issue may just resolve itself.
Taurus (April 20-May 20) daily horoscope for Saturday December 9
People-pleasing again, Taurus? Your sign can get sucked into caretaking, but the weekend’s skies remind you to enjoy some essential “me time” too. A tense opposition between big-hearted Venus (your ruler) and generous Jupiter (in your sign) rebalances the scales. Sure, it puts you at ease when everyone else is content, but you might be hindering your own progress by doing so. Ditch the FOMO and embrace the power of saying no—even if that means you miss a happy hour or dinner with friends. There will always be another invitation, so tend to YOUR needs first.
Gemini (May 21-June 20) daily horoscope for Saturday December 9
Don’t make other people’s business your own, Gemini. This weekend’s Jupiter-Venus opposition sounds the call for better boundaries—especially if someone’s been leaning heavily (or exclusively!) on you. Break the codependent dynamic by encouraging this person to be more self-sufficient. Don’t buy into their helpless routine or get sucked into savior mode. You might think you’re doing the right thing, but check yourself: Is there a vested or self-serving interest? Maybe you’re avoiding something in your own life by focusing on them. Turn the lens back on yourself.
Cancer (June 21-July 22) daily horoscope for Saturday December 9
When it comes to friends and family, any Crab worth their salt loves being at the epicenter of the action. But are you getting caught up in gossip or drama? This weekend’s face-off between lavish Venus and excessive Jupiter sends up a warning flare. Avoid getting sucked into hysteria by removing yourself from situations that have devolved from colorful to chaotic. With overblown Jupiter making everything into a huge ordeal, your temper could easily flare, creating a mess that will be hard to clean up later. Save any emotionally charged text threads for later. If you’re unsure how a social media post will go over, err on the side of caution and save it to drafts.
Leo (July 23-August 22) daily horoscope for Saturday December 9
Try as you might, you can’t make everybody happy, Leo. This weekend’s tense face-off between loving Venus and hedonistic Jupiter could bring friction at home, and some that carries over from the workweek, forcing you to pick your battles. There’s only so much of you to go around, and you risk overextending yourself by trying to meet everyone’s needs. In doing so, you’re only enabling them and allowing this needy dynamic to continue. Prevent yourself from stewing with resentment by encouraging others to take care of themselves. A pep talk and some useful resources CAN make a difference.
Virgo (August 23-September 22) daily horoscope for Saturday December 9
Zip those lips, Virgo, even if you feel ready to unleash a monologue. Self-restraint is in order this weekend, with a combustible Venus-Jupiter opposition lighting a fire in your communication zones. Your typically candid sign is always ready to serve up a strong opinion, but under these tense skies, telling it like it is could backfire. Spare the world your radical commentary or run the risk of jeopardizing an important alliance. Keep conversation light, getting straight to the point instead of meandering off topic. Negotiating a deal? While you may not necessarily agree with everything, discipline yourself enough to meet this person halfway.
Libra (September 23-October 22) daily horoscope for Saturday December 9
Money burning a hole in your pocket, Libra? This weekend’s Venus-Jupiter opposition sounds a financial wake-up call, encouraging you to scale back on your spending. A little retail therapy is fine every now and then, but are your excessive shopping sprees masking your need for more TLC? It’s easy to tell yourself you “deserve” something, especially when you work so hard, but you can still live richly without breaking the bank. Practice creative consumerism by hosting a clothing swap with your fellow fashionistas. Or set money aside for something lavish rather than buying on impulse and ending up with regrets.
Scorpio (October 23-November 21) daily horoscope for Saturday December 9
Not so fast, Scorpio. A starry-eyed romance or budding business venture may have swept you up in excitement, but this weekend’s Venus-Jupiter opposition removes the rose-colored glasses. As the veil of illusion lifts and you see the situation more clearly, you could realize that your expectations are unrealistic. Take a step back and reassess your shared goals and visions, making sure you want the same thing out of this. It’s one thing to dream big, but quite another to create false hope and project your fantasies onto another person. Slow down and let this evolve organically.
Sagittarius (November 22-December 21) daily horoscope for Saturday December 9
Has something been eating at you, Archer? Rather than stubbornly brushing it aside, this weekend’s opposition between heartfelt Venus and optimistic Jupiter encourages you to investigate. Whether it’s a chronic pain in your side or a worry you just can’t seem to shake, pull over and check underneath the proverbial hood. Instead of paging Dr. Google or trying to figure this out on your own, why not consult a specialist? Things are probably just fine, but as always, better safe than sorry. Your body and emotions may be working together to deliver an important message. Do something to dial down stress and pump up the self-care. How about booking that birthday massage or corralling friends for a spa day?
Capricorn (December 22-January 19) daily horoscope for Saturday December 9
A meeting of the minds…or a fiery face-off? Sexual tension could cause friction, but pause before you dive into a deeper, er, exploration. This weekend, a tense opposition between love planet Venus and hedonistic Jupiter could conjure chaos. Don’t feed into someone else’s drama, Capricorn. If you have plans with an intense person who might absorb all your energy, try an activity that doesn’t require getting sucked into their wormhole. An inspiring movie could give you something to talk about besides THAT subject. And if all else fails, reschedule!
Aquarius (January 20-February 18) daily horoscope for Saturday December 9
Draw a thick line in the sand, Aquarius. If someone’s been taking advantage of your generosity, clear boundaries are in order. Just try not to get mad at the line-crosser if you never set those limits in the first place. This weekend, a clash between open-hearted Venus and expansive Jupiter reminds you that it’s okay to say no, and essential to prioritize your own needs. How can you take care of anyone else if you don’t take care of yourself first? You may need to keep this person at a healthy distance for at least a day or two. Giving them space to figure out a problem with minimal input from you is actually more helpful than harmful.
Pisces (February 19-March 20) daily horoscope for Saturday December 9
Wear your proud heart on your sleeve, Pisces, but don’t reveal TOO much. This weekend’s gushingly expressive Venus-Jupiter opposition could bring a foot-in-mouth moment, reminding you that filters are essential. Strike a balance between being authentic and just plain inappropriate. There’s a tendency to offend under these skies, even with a haphazard comment that slips out in passing. By the same token, watch for oversharing—especially if you don’t have a clear sense of who’s in the room. Keep it short and sweet.
