General Daily Insight for October 11, 2023
Self-assurance can be hard to find. The confident Sun is challenging aching Chiron, making it more difficult to take on the trials of life, as self-confidence is hindered by past emotional hurts. Luckily, the emotional Moon then strengthens changeable Uranus at 11:06 am EDT, aiding us as we seek change and take risks that should pay off. Finally, the Moon struggles with Chiron, unfortunately echoing the past emotional wounds and attempting to knock us off course. We’ll only lose if we stop trying!
March 21 – April 19
You can strike a healthy balance between you and someone else. It may be that you aren’t sure of your dynamic as you’re making joint decisions, or perhaps the other person is calling the shots and influencing you too strongly. You might feel like you’re just going with the flow, but if you notice that the current is always flowing in their direction, you risk getting carried away. Try to figure out your bearings with this person, or you could risk losing your way.
April 20 – May 20
Your hesitations may be echoes of past negative influences in your life. You might notice that you’re afraid to do activities that others poked fun at you for doing in the past. It’s okay if you fell down back then, but at this time, you can pick yourself up. Ask yourself what’s really holding you back — other people’s opinions of you, or your opinion of yourself. As long as your hobbies bring you joy and don’t hurt anyone else, no one else’s opinion matters.
May 21 – June 20
Close friendships can experience ups and downs — especially right now. You may find that your feelings are hurt by someone close to you, and while they probably didn’t mean to hurt your feelings with their words or actions, your sensitivity regarding their opinion of you can create tension between you. Being honest about how you’re feeling will allow you to avoid becoming resentful. Deep connections usually aren’t worth losing over any small disagreements. Search for a way back to each other.
June 21 – July 22
How you present yourself to others matters. This isn’t necessarily connected to your appearance — your attitude and the energy that you bring to a conversation with someone else are both significant. If you approach others with negative expectations or a self-deprecating mindset, then you might find that this becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. In contrast, when you approach them with optimism and an open mind, then you can receive better results and a more open response. Don’t let your fears block you from making connections.
July 23 – August 22
Lessons that you learned in the past may not have been true. Learning new information can feel shocking and take time to implement. You might be correcting old or outdated knowledge that you were once given, and those falsehoods could have portrayed you in a light that wasn’t accurate. Whether this belief was judgmental or ignorant, correcting it as soon as possible to avoid operating off of this faulty mindset is a great idea. Update your knowledge and don’t look back.
August 23 – September 22
A secret might be weighing on you. It could be that something took place a long time ago, or you understood certain implications way back when, but the situation and people involved may no longer be in your life. This may still be keeping you from moving forward with your life, as you continually return to this shadowy period and let it incite guilt or unworthiness in your heart. Instead of cycling through the same old shame, make a point of letting it go.
September 23 – October 22
Your relationship to someone you once knew could be causing confusion. You might have had a friendship go sour or a family member stop speaking with you — specifics aside, it’s likely a difficult and complex situation to navigate. You may miss how it felt to talk with them and spend time with them, but the relationship is no longer what it once was. Returning to it could be difficult, but it might also provide closure. Whether or not you reconnect is up to you.
October 23 – November 21
Grudges are particularly heavy at present. There may be people from your past that you still feel resentful toward for actions or harsh words that they wielded against you back then. You’re someone who likely doesn’t remain in situations or wallow in emotions that don’t benefit you — unless it happens to be a grudge that you carry, causing you to mentally re-enact arguments and try to change the ending. This weight is only hurting you, so do your best to release it.
November 22 – December 21
Risking your responsibilities probably sounds immensely tempting. You’re possibly running late to an important meeting or eyeing a deadline in the near future — either way, a shortcut might be calling your name. While it could seem like a good idea at the time, cutting corners can quickly turn out to be a disappointment. Being dedicated and consistent is the main way to avoid pitfalls at this time, which can be harder than it sounds — just do what you can to be reliable.
December 22 – January 19
Hidden feelings are rising toward the surface. You may have not intended to share your emotions with the people around you, but odds are, you will receive an opportunity to speak your mind and share your uncensored heart, — though the person inviting you to do so might not realize that you have some surprising news to tell them. While being entirely honest can be uncomfortable at times, just let what you’re thinking and feeling flow out of you with the confidence of truth.
January 20 – February 18
Current challenges can be beneficial to your development. You might notice that someone in your life is trying to rival your talents in a less than subtle way, and that they’re doing their best to challenge you and see if you will give in. Co-workers and friends that you see routinely could seem like they are competing with you, and siblings might do the same if you have them. Don’t let it bother you — instead, try to see it as a desire to connect.
February 19 – March 20
Worrying might be sabotaging your ambitions. Instead of saying “what if” when you look at your dreams and desires, you may continually say “probably not,” thus keeping yourself from making the progress that you want to make. While it could seem like there are other obstacles in your way, the biggest obstacle standing in your way right now is probably YOU! Once you’re able to vocalize your true goals out loud to your loved ones, you’ll be that much closer to achieving them.
