General Daily Insight for September 17, 2023
General Daily Insight for September 17, 2023
It’s an undeniably fabulous day. Luxurious Venus and expansive Jupiter are coming into a combustible square at 2:10 am EDT, so our desires to enjoy ourselves will be positively off the charts. Meanwhile, the Moon in fair-minded Libra will form a pair of back-to-back quincunxes to rebellious Uranus and mystical Neptune, so reality will be the last thing on our minds. It’s important to avoid going overboard, particularly once the Moon makes one last square to Pluto and turns up the intensity of nearly everything.
March 21 – April 19
It could be almost impossible to maintain a sense of responsibility right now. There is a potent square between pleasure-loving Venus in your exuberant 5th house and bountiful Jupiter in your luxurious 2nd house, which readies your bold soul to do as you please and leave reason behind for another time. There’s nothing wrong with enjoying yourself, but there is a danger here of overdoing things — especially when it comes to spending. Don’t do something your future self will regret!
April 20 – May 20
Everything could seem larger than life at this time, but don’t worry — it’s to your advantage. Your sign’s ruler Venus is in your emotional 4th house, and is squaring excitable Jupiter, currently in your own sign. This may fill you with all the excitement of a kid in a candy store! This much opportunity is wonderful, but be wary of indulging yourself past sensibility. Suffering from a sugar high wouldn’t be fun, so pick your pleasures carefully and you should be just fine.
May 21 – June 20
Your immediate reality may look more like a fantasy world on a day like this. Venus is currently in your 3rd House of Local Community, stirring up lots of pleasurable activities in your immediate vicinity. Still, even the most energetic hobby may feel dreamier than usual when Venus squares Jupiter in your 12th House of the Subconscious. You can follow a yellow brick road wherever it might lead, but don’t do it blindly, or you risk losing sight of yourself in the process.
June 21 – July 22
You may have to be more decisive than usual when picking your pleasures today. There is a conflicting square between Venus in your income sector and Jupiter in your social sector, and while Venus wants you to treat yourself, Jupiter is driving you to treat other people. The main thing to remember is that your true friends shouldn’t expect you to pay for them or cover their share, but a little generosity doesn’t hurt anyone when you’re doing it for the right reasons.
July 23 – August 22
Try not to lay anything on too thick, Leo. You’ve got a special gloss as Venus tours your sign, but that might cause you to gild the lily when Venus squares enthusiastic Jupiter in your 10th House of Reputation. It’s fine to be indulgent here and there, as Venus can urge you to do, but that could rub other people the wrong way. If you want to treat yourself, don’t bother showing it off to others. Keep your pleasures private for the time being.
August 23 – September 22
Anything could seem possible on a day like this, but whether you actually do anything with that energy is another matter altogether. Venus in your subconscious sector is making a powerful square to Jupiter in your adventure sector, so you won’t be able to gauge reality as well as you normally do. You’re allowed to go off and do as you please, but watch out — that probably won’t produce the results you want. You can make an effort without expecting too much from yourself.
September 23 – October 22
The cosmos is in a giving mood, and is passing that generosity down to you. Venus in your social 11th house is encouraging you to nurture all the people in your life, so you may be feeling especially supportive. Still, as Venus fusses over Jupiter in your money-minded 8th house, you may offer more financial help than you should. Yes, it’s very nice to cover the bill for everyone, but don’t let your cash burn a hole in your pocket.
October 23 – November 21
Someone could have a positive impact on your ongoing ambitions. You’re primed to be at your best while Venus tours your reputation sector, adding an extra sheen to your public image. Venus also squares Jupiter in your partnership sector, possibly resulting in a specific figure being your number-one cheerleader. This could give you just the boost you need to cross the finish line, as long as they don’t dramatize things and leave you feeling a bit silly in the process.
November 22 – December 21
The world is full of possibilities, but you may have a few tasks to deal with before you can explore more exciting options. Luxurious Venus in your expansive 9th house is showing you all the opportunities available just beyond the horizon, but a square to Jupiter in your responsible 6th house might stir up some chores for you to check off first and foremost. Handle the work in front of you before spreading your wings and seeing what’s out there.
December 22 – January 19
Wearing your heart on your sleeve isn’t a matter of choice at the moment. You’re prone to keeping feelings to yourself while Venus tours your secretive 8th house, but that energy gets shaken up when Venus argues with enthusiastic Jupiter in your live-out-loud 5th house. It’ll be nigh impossible to keep your head on! Don’t be shocked if you feel a dissonance between these conflicting emotions — instead, look for a happy medium that works for you without leaving you feeling regret.
January 20 – February 18
Other people likely want the best for you. Venus in your relationship sector is bringing lots of support your way from important peers, and you may have a hard time not getting emotional over this support when Venus squares Jupiter in your 4th House of Feelings. Even if you don’t consider yourself a very sentimental person, you could release a flood of waterworks under this alignment — thankfully, it should be cathartic. Allow others to see what you often keep bottled up.
February 19 – March 20
Your day may be fun, but it probably won’t be very productive. You have the best intentions while Venus is in your efficient 6th house, but its square to enthusiastic Jupiter in your busy 3rd house could result in you bouncing all over the place without much progress to show for your efforts. You could certainly enjoy yourself, but when it comes to accomplishing anything, you’d be wise to avoid any grandiose expectations. Enjoy today, then get back to work tomorrow.
