General Daily Insight for December 18, 2023
A second look should prove worthwhile. The Moon in Pisces inspires us with a sextile to Jupiter, but the trine between messenger Mercury and grandiose Jupiter at 9:28 am EDT will be even more exciting. Remember, however, that with Mercury Retrograde we can find more success in reviewing old work or projects, rather than embarking on fresh schemes. The Moon will then go on to trine Venus and square Mars, so our feelings may burn more brightly than we’re used to.
March 21 – April 19
An old idea could prove vastly lucrative. Mercury is retrograde in your career sector, bringing up previous projects for a second look. As it buoys up jovial Jupiter in your income sector, those old pitches may be worth a pretty penny. A conversation with a superior or random meeting will possibly remind you of something you’d forgotten about or written off, and it’s about to come flying back to you, demanding your attention! Blow the dust off and see what you reveal.
April 20 – May 20
There’s so much to explore out in the great wide yonder at the moment. Mercury in your adventure sector is empowering confident Jupiter in your steady sign, so you could be on the receiving end of some messages from far away. Mercury is retrograde, however, so you’ll possibly have heard these messages before, or have already been circling the topic for some time. Avoid taking up any hot opportunities, as the fresher they are, the less realistic they will turn out to be.
May 21 – June 20
Secrets may reveal themselves without any help from you! Your sign’s ruling planet Mercury is in your secretive 8th house, trining outgoing Jupiter in your concealed 12th house. This alignment may throw shocking news or gossip your way when you’re least expecting it! Still, hesitate before taking anything at face value, even from typically trusted sources. Mercury Retrograde makes it less likely that information is entirely reliable. You don’t want to take something to heart only to discover it’s completely made up.
June 21 – July 22
Special people are ready to offer you fantastic opportunities! The lovely trine between buzzy Mercury in your partnership sector and lucky Jupiter in your 11th House of Social Networks could bring folks into your life from near and far — and these peers are your way to make the most of today. If you have to choose, focus on reconnecting with old acquaintances, rather than embarking on new friendships. Mercury Retrograde is a sign that these past connections are the day’s most valuable asset.
July 23 – August 22
Success is within your reach. Mercury in your efficient 6th house is advocating for auspicious Jupiter in your ambitious 10th house, promoting you as a planetary team. They’re shining spotlights on opportunities to improve your professional life in a myriad of ways. Since Mercury is sliding retrograde, you’ll probably have a better time tending to old projects or previous collaborations, since those will bear the most fruit. Anything that’s been planted more recently doesn’t have a good chance of flourishing along your preferred path.
August 23 – September 22
There are endless possibilities available to you at present. Quick-witted Mercury is highlighting delight as it trots through your creative 5th house — that energy will get supersized when it sings in tune with boundless Jupiter in your high-flying 9th house. You’ll possibly be happy to go as far as possible in pursuit of your pleasures, and could fulfill them much further off than you’d ever expect. This transit, particularly in tandem with Mercury Retrograde, could also spur you to travel more.
September 23 – October 22
Your place is the hottest spot to be right now. A special trine between Mercury in your 4th House of Home and Jupiter in your 8th House of Shared Resources could result in a relative or roommate providing you with a big dose of positivity, perhaps in the shape of financial support or some other useful, meaningful aid. This is also quite a chatty energy, so feel free to open up your door and invite people to come over and warm your space.
October 23 – November 21
There’s something in the air today. The planets are going a mile a minute as courier Mercury in your 3rd House of Communications trines Jupiter in your 7th House of Interactions, which could bring exceptionally fascinating conversations to your inbox. Since Mercury is retrograde, you may be dealing with familiar topics. Keep in mind that you can bring things to a successful conclusion if you work for everyone’s benefit instead of focusing solely on your own success and how you can benefit the most.
November 22 – December 21
Financial progress is possible — as long as you make wise choices. Mercury is retrograde in your income sector as it forms a beneficial trine to Jupiter in your daily work sector, so you can find lucrative opportunities when you look carefully. You could find that previous projects or jobs will prove more profitable a second time around, thanks to Mercury moving backward, while unfamiliar offers and modern options won’t prove as worthwhile as you hoped when you first encountered them.
December 22 – January 19
Your own creativity is the key to your success. You’ve got lots to say as Mercury tours your sign, but watch your words! The messenger planet is retrograde; your statements will be larger than life as it trines limitless Jupiter in your artistic 5th house. Putting yourself in the spotlight could yield positive results — just remember to rely on what you know, rather than taking big risks. With Mercury asleep at the wheel, you’ll need to be extra cautious.
January 20 – February 18
It’s easy to feel out of it right now. You’re possibly more than a little checked out while Mercury moves retrograde through your sleepy 12th house, but its helpful trine to Jupiter in your emotional 4th house should still allow you to feel cared for and supported. You don’t need to be out achieving every day, so give yourself permission to tend to your needs and return to the wider world under more sociable skies. You’ve earned a period of rest and relaxation.
February 19 – March 20
People are your best support system at this time. A lovely angle between Mercury in your 11th House of Friendships and Jupiter in your 3rd House of Local Community is presenting you with plenty of opportunities to connect with friends, new and old, potentially uncovering some fortuitous prospects in the process. A friend-of-a-friend could know of a great gig with your name all over it! Be sure to circulate, because you never know what you’ll find when you’re being your most sociable self.
