Your zodiac sign's daily horoscope for Saturday, September 16, 2023.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)


Aries, you are a force to be reckoned with. So when you have a goal, a really big dream you want to accomplish, it would be *nice* to have someone in your corner cheering you on, but if you don't ... no problem, you're OK with winning solo. Today, however, with the Moon in your sector of relationships opposite Chiron, the planet of hurt feelings and deep emotional wounds, you need to be sure not to push people away when they are trying to help you.

This is a big year for you, Aries. The Node of Fate is in your sign! It's a tight rope you'll need to learn how to walk. You don't want to give a friend a cold shoulder and think that it's you against the world because that's what you're used to. Instead, embrace togetherness. Keep strong boundaries, but also allow yourself to be open to help when needed.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)


Taurus, you are often called stubborn because you are methodic and deliberate about what you decide to do. When you have made a decision, it's after a long thought process. You've sorted through all the ways things can go, and you've determined the path you think you can take with the least amount of risk involved. But today, there's a bit of a monkey wrench thrown into your day. So, here you are with an unknown variable .. and guess what, Bull, you're pushed outside of your comfort zone. Yay, Moon in Libra opposite Chiron in Aries.

You can see this moment as an evil to wrestle with because of how inconvenient you feel life has become. The universe is messing with YOUR time and you intend to battle back. OR you can go with the flow for a day. See how the routine resets itself organically. What's the worst that could happen, Taurus? You might discover that you grow as a result of this 'catastrophe' and you like learning how to be flexible even if it was not in the plan.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)


As an air sign, the path to your heart and to your attention is through your mind.

Today, when Chiron is in your sector of friendships and social networks, you're a bit more open to talking about things typically off of the table.

Today, you might entertain the uncle, aunt or sibling who wants to talk politics, and you don't always agree. But you can be curious without judgment today, perhaps even fascinated! It's interesting to hear other people's points of view. Today you'll like knowing you can actually detach without getting upset about things that ordinarily bother you. Good for you!

Libra (September 23 - October 22)


You are flexible and adaptable, and sometimes these beautiful traits you possess can lead you to become distracted and inefficient. Today, as the Moon in your sign opposes Chiron, you might struggle to be your authentic self within your relationships. Today, as the seesaw effect happens in your life, you will find it hard to be yourself.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)


You have a psychic sense about you. When someone is lying, you can tell. When someone is being honest, you can also tell. Your accuracy in detecting dishonesty has been fairly good. So, when you notice a person consistently lying about the little things it gets under your skin. You dislike it, and you prefer that they would stop, effective immediately. Today, it's time to put someone you love on notice. You aren't walking away, but they are on your radar.

You can tell they are hiding something, and when the Moon is opposite of Chiron, you will decide to let them know you feel hurt. You need to reduce your stress because this is triggering for you. So they have to do the right thing, or it's bye-bye, Felicia to the confidence you have. You can be friends, but they may not remain in your inner circle of trust.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)


Work means so much to you, so when you have a hard day at the office or aren't getting along with coworkers, it hurts your heart. One problem is that you've built your identity around what you do. Of course, you did, Capricorn. You're ruled by Saturn, the father or time, and he's a tough taskmaster, and you're also the sign associated with the 10th house, the house of work and social status.

Today you're going to need to give yourself some positive talk. You might not feel as effective at work as you usually are. You might think someone else is being treated more fairly or better than you. This is going to pass, but you know how to work this game. You take a break, think about what's happening, and then jump back into the game and work things through.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)


Well, how can this be said without sounding offensive? You are not always comfortable hearing (or divulging) secrets. You don't mind hearing what is going on in the dark parts of a person's life, but there's a point when you feel sad or a bit unempowered and incapable of changing the situation. Sometimes you come across as cold, but that's your way of coping with life's harshness.

Today, though you may try an unconventional approach toward conversations. You will dive in and listen with open ears, but this time ask questions. You can ask how to help or what can you do to make things better. You might still feel detached on the inside (self-preservation!) But this is a great big first step toward being the friend you know you can be, and being the person you hope to be — influential!

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)


Whenever something energetically happens with the sign of Aries, it seems to create a bit of impulsiveness in you. Today, you could be prone to overspending.

Your dreamy nature can have a belief that you'll figure it all out. You'll pay the bill and make more money before it comes in. Try to be cautious about retail therapy or doing things that put you in a situation you don't want to be in. It's always best to live in the moment, and financially that also means taking action with both feet on the ground.
