General Daily Insight for July 13, 2023
It’s time to synchronize our hearts and minds. We begin with the emotional Moon trotting into intellectual Gemini at 3:26 am EDT, bringing an air of thoughtfulness to our inner lives. The Moon then stumbles into dynamic Mars, making it difficult to suppress our impulses and manage our tempers. Fortunately, playful Mercury works well with the Moon to realign our thoughts and feelings, as well as showing us how to be more empathetic with others. Don’t shy away from connection — reach toward it.
March 21 – April 19
Your mind is buzzing with activity today, Aries. You may find yourself being more intentional about communicating and spending time with the people who matter to you, and you’re possibly hatching engaging new plans together that will give everyone the space to connect with each other in healthy ways. Your impulsivity is boosted as well, so try to channel that toward positive activities that you’ve been wanting to do with your friends or family. Don’t let boredom get the best of you.
April 20 – May 20
Stability is of utmost importance at the moment. It may feel like you’re trying to put down roots, but the people that you’re trying to grow and flourish with aren’t on board to do so. It might be discouraging to spend time with people who aren’t letting you create your foundation — you could risk feeling like a balloon in the breeze, flying to and fro, waiting for someone to take hold of you. You don’t have to get approval to create your safe haven.
May 21 – June 20
You could be engaging in some silliness at this time. Your sense of humor is heightened, and it might be tempting to play a prank on someone that you’re close to. A playful joke can lighten the energy and let you laugh together, but before you begin, some thought needs to be put into the process. Their feelings need to be taken into consideration, because if they don’t think it’s funny, it’s not going to be fun for anyone! Laugh with them, not at them.
June 21 – July 22
Engaging ways to connect with your spiritual side are currently available. There may be some elements to spiritual practices that you find boring, such that trying to do them alone could put you right to sleep. While you can connect with your spiritual side anywhere, contemplate adding some elevating elements to your spiritual practices so that they don’t feel so much like chores. Perhaps you could meditate in a beautiful park or do yoga by a body of water — whatever motivates your soul.
July 23 – August 22
Friends can pull you out of an ongoing rut. You might feel like you’re doing the same thing again and again for a good cause, but it’s likely making you feel stagnant. Don’t ignore those who reach out to you — whether it’s a group of pals or one good buddy. You may have blown them off multiple times recently in order to stick with your responsible routine, but life is short. You deserve a fun night with people who matter to you.
August 23 – September 22
Virgo vigilance for the win! It’s possible that your workplace is allowing you an opportunity to show off your leadership skills, or your regular life could show you a decision that needs to be made, but no one else is willing to make it. Regardless of the details, take charge to prove just how capable you are when responsible for anything. That said, there’s no need to take things too seriously! Keep in mind that camaraderie is just as important as authority.
September 23 – October 22
There is particular power in caring for others today. Someone you know likely feels led astray in their current life and needs some guidance to return to their highest path. It can feel like you need to supply sage wisdom, but in reality, they would probably prefer a friend to listen and cheer them up. Unless they explicitly ask for advice, it might be wiser to let them cry on your shoulder and then eat some snacks and watch a movie. Sometimes healing is simple.
October 23 – November 21
Dancing around today’s feelings probably looks easier than confronting them. Be aware of your wants — especially if you have an acquaintance that you’d like to get to know better, but can’t figure out how to get close to them. This could be a colleague you want to network with or a friend-of-a-friend you want to chat with. They might even feel the same way about you! Keep any conversations light and thoughtful, but don’t be afraid to take the first step and reach out.
November 22 – December 21
Entertaining other people is possibly taking the forefront of your concerns. You might be about to find that you’re stuck with someone who you’re supposed to care for and keep out of trouble. The best way to do this is likely by distracting them and entertaining them through showing them the sights or providing them with activities that will keep their attention. You could feel tempted to boss them around at times, but gentle suggestions should be all you need to keep the show going.
December 22 – January 19
Work may not feel as much like work as usual. You have the potential to get things done faster than normal, and your charm and wit can spur you to entertain those around you while you go through your to-do list. Your biggest obstacles could be your desire for fun and any opportunities to procrastinate, as your distractions might be more distracting and time-consuming than normal. Stay focused until you’re finished with that last task, then you’re free to enjoy the day.
January 20 – February 18
Creativity abounds! You plausibly have a good opening to show other people your creative abilities, whether they’re dancing, singing, acting, painting, or even scrapbooking. Whatever your talents and skills are, you will potentially be able to show an audience and hear their feedback. You might be tempted to keep your imagination a secret, so that you don’t receive any unwanted criticism, but what you’re doing is meant to be shared. Shed any insecurities and brighten up someone’s day with your talents.
February 19 – March 20
Your family connections may be stronger than you once expected. A relative or roommate could be struggling, but you can be there to lend them a helping hand. They might argue with you at first, perhaps out of a desire for control or independence, but no matter how independent either of you are, everyone needs a little assistance sometimes. They will likely eventually allow you to put in your own efforts and be grateful for them. You can both lift each other up!
