General Daily Insight for January 24, 2021

Dreamy Neptune is spinning along ever so slowly through Pisces, casting a glow over the universe, but that glow might turn into a fog today when the jittery Gemini Moon forms a tense square to the illusory planet at 4:36 pm EST. Things are liable to change under this energy, so it's best not to make plans or sign contracts. Once the Moon forms a quincunx to Venus later in the evening, romance might be on the table -- but getting on the same page as our loved ones won't be easy.



March 21-April 19

Trying to get your ideas across may be more difficult than usual right now due to a tough angle between the distracted Moon and foggy Neptune. The more you try to push in any one direction, the more difficult it will be for you to vocalize even the simplest thoughts. Give yourself permission to hold off on any important talks because chances are you won't be able to say everything you truly need to say. Patience is key right now.



April 20-May 20

It's important to keep your eye on the ball today, but that might be more than a little difficult thanks to the fact your friends will probably lob one distraction after another in your direction. Do your best to focus on your responsibilities and, if you can get through even a few of them, then consider it a job well done and clock out. You can achieve more things in a few days, but right now the stars don't expect you to move any mountains.


May 21-June 20

It can sometimes seem that no matter how hard you chase after your hopes and dreams and aspirations, they are still somehow out of your reach. That won't always be the case, but today those goals on the horizon will seem even further away than normal. Don't get down on yourself just because you can't manifest exactly what you want right now. Keep plugging away at your work and accept that it's OK not to make miracles happen on a day like this.


June 21-July 22

Life is going to feel like a bit of a dream right now, but it will be the kind of dream where no matter how hard you try, you can't seem to get where you want to go. Instead of fighting against this, your best bet is to float along and take in the scenery as much as you possibly can. You're being given cosmic permission to put reality on the backburner in favor of indulging in your fantasies today, so enjoy every second of it.


July 23-August 22

You might find yourself trying to walk the fine line between being fun and serious and playful and professional today. Deciding which direction to go in won't be the easiest thing for you to do, as you'll have an increased desire to connect with your best friends rather than facing your more pressing responsibilities. Remember, you can run away from your obligations, but they will still come calling. You'd be wise to hold off on the exciting adventures for another day.


August 23-September 22

Keep your eye on the prize today. As much as you might want to go after something full tilt right now, there could be a few potholes in the road that you'll need to watch out for. It seems someone in your life -- a partner, a coworker, a friend -- will throw a wrench into your plans and provide more than one distraction when you are attempting to make professional progress. Set boundaries, being patient but firm with this person.


September 23-October 22

You might be inclined to throw caution to the wind and go off on a wild adventure today. However, reality is going to come back around and remind you there are better ways to handle things than just shrugging your shoulders and assuming things will work out for the best. Whether you like it or not, life is demanding that you be on your best behavior right now. Hold off on any escapades until you've crossed every "t" and dotted every "i."


October 23-November 21

Pleasure and play are the name of the game for you today, but getting on the same page as someone in your life might be difficult. Whether this is about getting intimate with a partner or just hanging out with a pal, you two won't seem to be on the same wavelength about what you should be doing together. It's okay to stand your ground, but you might have more fun if you let the other person call the shots.


November 22-December 21

People could push your buttons today, so it might be best to try and make sure you've got plenty of space between you and those who want to offer up unvarnished truths. If anyone knows about shooting straight from the hip, it would be you, but it isn't as much fun when you're on the receiving end of that kind of behavior. Instead of offering yourself up as a target for this kind of honesty, protect yourself and focus on your own needs for the day.


December 22-January 19

You're going to want to get to the bottom of an important work matter today. It appears that every time you think you are getting closer to unraveling this knotted up string of a problem, you encounter another tangle you hadn't previously noticed. Whether a coworker presents you with a never-ending issue or a client doesn't stop asking for help, something will become more than a little draining. Don't force yourself to fix it all right now; everything happens in due time.


January 20-February 18

Your focus now might lean more toward wandering off and enjoying yourself rather than taking care of your responsibilities. While that is all well and good, the day's cosmic energies are urging you to sit down and look over your finances with a magnifying glass. There might be a discrepancy in your account or a charge you didn't know about, so take the time to make sure everything is as it should be. The work you do now could fund the fun you have later.


February 19-March 20

Complicated cosmic energies may make it impossible for you to answer the question "What do I want?" today. The influence of these planetary alignments will lead to you being all over the place, so rather than trying to force yourself in any one direction, allow yourself to color outside the lines and see where that creative journey takes you. When you don't put pressure on yourself, the world will naturally offer up good options, leading you to where you were meant to go all along.
