General Daily Insight for September 28, 2023
What starts out as a rather slow day certainly won’t end that way. The Moon in Pisces jabs at Mercury in Virgo, so finding a path forward will require balance, though a lunar sextile to Uranus will encourage us to approach everything with a dose of ingenuity. Once Luna conjoins dreamy Neptune, a veil of mysticism is cast over everything, but the mood immediately heats up as the Moon marches into fiery Aries at 8:17 pm EDT. Three, two, one: blast off!
March 21 – April 19
Your present focus may shift inward. The Moon is arriving in your assertive sign, touching down for a few days to coordinate your outer and inner selves as you begin a fresh chapter. Take a moment to think about what you would like to manifest into your life over the next lunar cycle, then make a game plan for how to achieve it. By the time the Moon returns to your sign in four weeks, you’ll be a new you.
April 20 – May 20
There’s likely no need to confront reality today. You can drift off wherever you like as the Moon touches down in your fantastical 12th house, beckoning you to tumble down a rabbit hole or two. Explore the recesses of your imagination and see what you can uncover there! Perhaps you’ll reveal a revelation that’s been lurking in your mind or inspiration that deeply moves your heart. This process can be a truly healing one, so allow your spirit to guide you through it.
May 21 – June 20
It’s all about who you know. There’s an undeniably social air to the day as the Moon bounces into your 11th house of Connectivity, getting you in touch with close friends and loose acquaintances and everyone in between. Someone you barely know could turn out to be much more in sync with your own beliefs and personality than you would have anticipated, so don’t be stingy about extending invites. The difference between a stranger and a friend is often a surprisingly small one.
June 21 – July 22
Your motivation is burning brightly. The Moon is marching into your 10th House of Long-Term Goals, setting your sights on the finish line, wherever it might be for you. Make specific steps toward that line, if possible. Even when you aren’t exactly sure how to proceed, this is a great moment to sit down and take time to plan a proper strategy that’ll point you in the right direction. It will be much easier to achieve your goals once you understand what you’re doing.
July 23 – August 22
A current of curiosity is flowing through you. This adventurous energy is thanks to the Moon flying into your 9th House of Expansion, broadening your capacity to engage with concepts beyond your traditional scope. Whether this is because you’re about to embark on a major vacation or simply read a book on an unfamiliar subject, you’ll find the most joy when you are immersing yourself in anything new and unusual. Leave what you know behind and go see what possibilities are available!
August 23 – September 22
Don’t be shocked if everything seems exceedingly extreme right now. The Moon is entering your 8th House of Shared Resources, which can force you to confront some of the less exciting aspects of life. Brace yourself, put on your game face, and get down to the nitty-gritty without hesitation. When you prepare yourself for difficulties, then what comes your way may seem rather easy by comparison — in contrast, if you expect to float through life, you’ll probably find your progress quickly hindered.
September 23 – October 22
You can find balance more easily than usual. You’re in your element as the Moon moves into your 7th House of Alliances, the sector of the zodiac your sign is most comfortable in, and it’s encouraging you to embrace an easy give-and-take. Remember the old adage: scratch my back, and I’ll scratch yours. That’s what this energy is all about! Regardless of the specifics, you can work together to find a compromise that not only works for everyone, but actually benefits all involved as well.
October 23 – November 21
There’s nothing wrong with doing things by the book. Following the rules is essential as the Moon marches into your organized 6th house, setting an efficient tone to the day. If you feel a bit out of sorts, you’re allowed to pause to center yourself. Try writing down whatever you need to do in order to get back to feeling like your best self. The planets will be aiding you in these efforts, so don’t worry — it won’t all be an uphill slog.
November 22 – December 21
Following your heart isn’t always a terrific idea, but that’s not the case today. The Moon is dancing into your expressive 5th house, singing a reminder that all work and no play is no way to live your life! Even if you’ve got plenty to do, you can still find ways to enjoy your to-do list with a splash of creativity. After you’ve checked everything off your list, you can drive into the sunset and have the time of your life.
December 22 – January 19
Comfort is your best friend right now. The couch is looking cozier than ever as the Moon enters your homey 4th house and reminds you of your domestic environment. Dishes or laundry left undone? Make an effort to stop procrastinating and check them off your list! If your place is already in tip-top shape, at least consider inviting a few friends for a fun night at House Capricorn. Give your pals a chance to come over and appreciate your hospitality.
January 20 – February 18
You may notice things are happening a bit faster than usual. The pace of the universe is picking up as the Moon arrives in your chaotic 3rd house, so do your best to keep your eye on the ball. Your phone could blow up non-stop, so if you don’t want to be completely distracted, it probably won’t hurt to put it on silent so you can actually get things done. Then again, if your schedule is clear, there’s no reason you can’t go socialize.
February 19 – March 20
Resisting indulgence is easier said than done. Everything shines with glittery appeal as the Moon spotlights your luxury-loving 2nd house, so it’s natural if your fingers are just itching to click the “buy now” button. It’s perfectly fine to treat yourself here and there, but make sure you’re spending money on things you actually want, and not things that will lose their appeal practically overnight. Spending money shouldn’t be a band-aid for something much more pressing than light retail therapy.
