General Daily Insight for October 25, 2023
Flexibility is the name of the game. The sensitive Moon contradicts perfectionist Venus, pushing us to put on a brave face to keep the peace. We’re strengthened as the Moon sextiles changeable Uranus, improving our ability to adapt to any circumstances and bringing unexpectedly lucky opportunities. Finally, the Moon conjoins dreamy Neptune at 10:22 pm EDT, heightening our intuitions. We should pay attention to the spiritual and imaginative sides of our souls — these will allow us to stay safe in any storm.
March 21 – April 19
Today is meant for sleeping in. You might be feeling under the weather, which can get in the way of plans that you have already made with friends or with your family. Don’t feel as if you have to push through the pain! Even if you’ve got a serious case of FOMO, some days you just need more rest. Set aside temporary joy in favor of healthy healing — this will allow your future self to keep up with even more fun activities!
April 20 – May 20
Optimism isn’t always the right path. You may be trying to keep a happy face on presently, telling yourself that everything is fine when it really, really isn’t. Sometimes you’re going through something difficult, and it’s healthy to acknowledge those hardships and recognize that they won’t last forever. You might be acting like things are fine and dandy for another person’s benefit, so that they will feel less scared or upset, but this burden shouldn’t fall entirely on your shoulders. It’s okay to be honest.
May 21 – June 20
Loved ones may not understand what you’re going through inside. You might be hiding your feelings behind wit or asking questions to them, as doing so could deflect from what you’re really experiencing internally. You potentially don’t want to burden the people around you with what you’re feeling, or you may believe that your opinion on something would wound someone that you love, so you’re keeping it inside. It’s up to you whether to disclose or to conceal — follow your intuition.
June 21 – July 22
You’re possibly burning the candle at both ends currently. Others may not totally understand your dreams or the paths you traverse to reach them, but you are still capable of gaining their support. It can be stressful to try and explain yourself, so just delegate by letting your network know how they can help out if they want to be there for you. Trying to justify what you’re doing may waste everyone’s time — instead, let them see the finished result for themselves.
July 23 – August 22
Supporting roles aren’t usually your thing, Leo, but today is an exception. That being said, it’s understandable if you’re a little hesitant to take time away from your own pursuits and projects. While it can be nerve-wracking to let go of what you’re doing for a little while, you probably deeply appreciate your team. Remember — if you were down on your luck, they’d likely be there to give you a hand as well. Your goals will be there when you get back.
August 23 – September 22
You might not want to let the other person know what you’re thinking. This doesn’t have to be negative! Perhaps you’re keeping a surprise from the other person, such as a present or a party — or you might be preparing to show them a venue or restaurant that they’ve never been to before. However, you could be containing a secret that would hurt them, and that would be a trickier tangle to grapple with. Regardless, just try to keep your actions above board.
September 23 – October 22
Confusion may make it hard to know what another person wants. You might be struggling to interpret the signals that someone else is sending you, while they feel like you’re purposefully misunderstanding them, and this can become a deeper and deeper hole as it is further discussed. Coming to a satisfying conclusion won’t be a simple process — you’d be wise to avoid confrontations altogether if at all possible. Be honest about what you feel, and the other person will likely appreciate the honesty.
October 23 – November 21
You’re able to brainstorm at the moment. You’ve got ample opportunity to show off your innovative skills, where you can imaginatively solve obstacles that have been stumping you for a while. You’re equipped to think outside of the box, but unfortunately, it’s also a time where you could be experiencing excessive peer pressure, which in turn makes it more difficult to be creative. Lean into your own ideas and try to get others to give them a chance before they shoot them down.
November 22 – December 21
Your maturity could be elevating you to new places throughout the day. Someone, either a parent, a superior at work, or another authority figure, may have noticed the ways you’ve grown as a person, so now want to give you more of a chance to shine. It might be anxiety-inducing to receive heavier responsibilities, either because you’re unsure of yourself or unfamiliar with the tasks, but consider taking on the challenge anyway! You will never grow if you never try anything new.
December 22 – January 19
You’re committed to growth, but that commitment is about to be tested. No matter how closely you were once connected to a pal, you may have to admit that you have grown apart. Some people aren’t able to follow you — whether your journeys differ or they’re refusing to move at all. If they exude negativity or try to drag you back into bad habits, you have to be strong and push forward. Don’t be unkind, but make an effort to keep moving.
January 20 – February 18
Some people are currently not meant to stay, and that’s okay. Someone that you still care about may be holding a grudge over an issue from the past. Instead of hurting yourself and them by refusing to let go, do your best to move on. It doesn’t have to be a dramatic ending — simply take a step back and allow the friendship to dissolve naturally over time. This kind of separation could still be painful, but it should be healthier in the long run.
February 19 – March 20
You don’t have to be the only one putting in effort. It might come as a shock to you to see that someone you care about isn’t working as a team on your connection. This person is likely a loved one who is a peer to you in age or experience — either way, their work is probably disappointing. They might be taking you for granted, which would be a topic that needs discussion. Don’t be afraid to ask for what you need emotionally.
