Sagittarius season plus Thanksgiving is always an interesting combo. With the Archer boosting the urge for adventure starting Nov. 22 and the holiday kicking off on Nov. 23 this year, your hunger for enlightening life experiences will only magnify and multiply just in time for your turkey dinner, making your Thanksgiving 2023 horoscope far from restful.

As the sun travels through mutable fire sign Sag, you’ll have the courage to venture out of your comfort zone and into environments that challenge you to grow and evolve. However, before the fun can truly begin, the cosmos on Thanksgiving will ask that you face the obstacles standing between you and your rightful need for freedom, which means you may not have time for second helpings.

Taking place on Nov. 23, the sun in the optimistic sign of Sagittarius will form a tense square with Saturn in the idealistic sign of Pisces. During this transit, you’ll be called to address the limitations or obstacles standing between you and your need to take impromptu risks and sudden leaps of faith. Since Saturn is the planet of reality checks, you may find that you’re having to accept certain facets of life for what they are. This doesn’t mean that you should lose hope, though. Instead, roll up your sleeves and handle the responsibilities that are standing in your way. ‘Tis the season for getting sh*t done.

Here’s how every zodiac sign will be affected by the astrology on Thanksgiving Day:
