General Daily Insight for September 06, 2023
We’re all moving at top speed at this time. The Moon in buzzy Gemini starts out with a trine to action planet Mars, helping us tap into our inner fire. The Sun and messenger Mercury will conjoin gracefully at 7:09 am EDT, blending our purpose together with our desire for self-expression. The Moon will then turn around to square both Mercury and the Sun, so it will be all but impossible for any of us to keep our thoughts to ourselves.
March 21 – April 19
You can be your most efficient self currently. The Sun and Mercury are coming together in your 6th House of Routine, helping you check off every task in front of you with minimal effort. The only thing to keep in mind is that Mercury is presently retrograde, so you’d be much wiser to deal with outstanding chores, rather than creating new problems for you to solve by yourself. A flexible strategy will help you complete everything on your to-do list.
April 20 – May 20
You deserve to have some fun without any sense of guilt. There is a lovely alignment overhead as the Sun and Mercury meet up in your 5th House of Creativity, reminding you that it is important to let your inner child out to play every once in a while. You don’t need to worry about results, but if you want to make this energy count in productive ways, then try to work on an artistic project that reflects your true self.
May 21 – June 20
Things could get rather busy throughout the day. The Sun is syncing up with your ruler Mercury at the same degree of Virgo in your 4th House of Home, so the energy could pick up within your domicile when you least expect it. This could be very helpful for getting procrastinated projects or outstanding chores finally done once and for all, but you could also host a get-together on the fly. Others will likely enjoy lining up at your door!
June 21 – July 22
Life is just one thing after another today! Your schedule could feel hectic as the Sun and Mercury conjoin in your busy 3rd house, giving you lots of things to do and places to be. This is great for checking on loved ones and seeing what’s happening. Just try to maintain some kind of schedule, or else the day could pass you by without you even realizing it. Make sure you write down any important information, because it’s unfortunately easy to be forgetful.
July 23 – August 22
You’ve got your mind on your money today, and rightly so. There is a potent conjunction between the Sun and messenger Mercury in your 2nd House of Income, and the best way to make use of it would be to go over your accounts and make sure you know where your finances are going. There’s a high risk that you’ve recently missed a leak here or there. A little due diligence should pay off handsomely in the future, so don’t waste your time with frivolities.
August 23 – September 22
You certainly have things to say right now, Virgo. You’ve got the gift of gab as the awesome Sun and chatty Mercury come into a powerful alignment in your own 1st House of Self-Expression, clarifying your thoughts regarding your most important internal philosophies and personal ideas. Granted, Mercury is retrograde, so you’d be wise to focus on projects or concepts you’ve already been playing with, as opposed to embarking on new adventures. The tried-and-true should bear sweeter fruit than the unknown.
September 23 – October 22
Your objective for the day is to not sweat the small stuff! The Sun and Mercury are aligning in your 12th House of Endings, and the whole theme of this energy is to live and let live — possibly even to let go. If any issues have been draining your system as you turn them over and over, you’d do well to change your approach and instead show them the door, as the planets will help you shut it once and for all.
October 23 – November 21
You’re potentially quite the star today. The Sun is connecting with Mercury in your 11th House of Social Networks, getting you in touch with people near and far. Since Mercury is retrograde, however, you should make a concerted effort to talk with friends and acquaintances already in your circle. If you seek out new connections during Mercury Retrograde, they’re less likely to lead to anything meaningful. Create time and space for the important people in your life, then they should do the same.
November 22 – December 21
It’s a good day to ask for what you want. The Sun and Mercury are working together in your 10th House of Professional Goals, making this the perfect time to aim high, because the planets will do all they can to help you get a top score. Since Mercury is moving retrograde, you’ll benefit most from wrapping up ongoing projects or speaking to old mentors, rather than embarking on unforeseen endeavors. There’s much to be gained from some reasonable revision.
December 22 – January 19
Your mind is now like a sponge. The Sun and cosmic communicator Mercury are syncing up at the same degree in your expansive 9th house, empowering you to reach outside of your usual limitations — particularly with education or travel. Due to Mercury Retrograde, consider revisiting old boundaries rather than confronting fresh ones. You may return to a topic of study that’s been on the back burner, or you could book tickets for a far-off destination you’ve only been to once.
January 20 – February 18
Complicated conversations may be the order of the day, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be productive conversations as well. The Sun and Mercury are syncing up in your 8th House of Shared Resources, forcing you to face any difficult talks you’ve been putting off for longer than you should. You can use this planetary support to deal with communication issues, regardless of their context, as soon as possible — rather than stumbling through another time when you won’t have so much aid.
February 19 – March 20
You’ve got an opening to gain clarity around your vital connections. The Sun and Mercury are making a special conjunction in your 7th House of Partnerships, bringing your plus-ones front and center. A particular person could have something to say to you, but since Mercury is retrograde, there’s a good chance you’ll have already been dealing with this topic for some time. It probably won’t be a surprise! Consider this a good opportunity to get on the same page as one another.
