General Daily Insight for April 19, 2021

Our pace of life slows down and becomes more relaxed once the Sun enters sensual Taurus at 4:33 pm EDT. Intellectual Mercury also enters Taurus today, making our thoughts slow and steady. Still, we will have plenty to think about as the sensitive Moon in Cancer makes a stressful opposition to manipulative Pluto in the evening, bringing up issues of power and control. Taurus' energy is grounded in the physical world, and that may be just the thing to turn down the emotional temperature.

Aries

March 21-April 19

You may be dealing with a conflict between personal ambition and nurturing others now. It probably goes beyond the particular work and family matters setting it off today -- back to the patterns you learned in your upbringing. Your finances, meanwhile, are coming into focus for you, and that may show you a way out of this seemingly unsolvable dilemma. Evaluate how you can use the resources you have to support both pursuing your professional goals and taking care of the people who matter to you.

Taurus

April 20-May 20

Emotional manipulation or bullying are likely to come up in your communications today. You are more visible than usual, so that could make you an easy target for others. You also feel more forceful than usual, so it’s possible that you are the one perpetrating this behavior. You might be able to get what you want, whether or not you should, so consider if cultivating an atmosphere of resentment is a worthy price for achieving your goal.

Gemini

May 21-June 20

You might be involved in a money drama with others today, though it all has to be kept hush-hush. Being aware of the difference between privacy and secrecy will help you engage in a constructive way. Privacy helps you work out an issue without giving the whole world the opportunity to weigh in and make it more complicated. Secrecy adds titillation and makes the issue seem like a bigger deal than it is. Your situation needs privacy, but the secrecy should be dialed down.

Cancer

June 21-July 22

It's easier for you to spot control issues within one of your close relationships today. This dynamic has been going on for a while, but it is normally harder to pin down, so being able to articulate it finally is actually a relief. Figuring out what to do about it is another challenge though. Interacting with a larger group online or through social media may give you some ideas; just experiencing different types of relationships can help you get out of your rut.

Leo

July 23-August 22

Professional advancement is coming into view for you. You would love a shiny new title, but you'll need to get your ego out of the way long enough to look at the details of any new position that you are considering. Make sure you thoroughly review a copy of the job description before you agree to anything, because there may be a lack of clarity about what you are really responsible for, and this ambiguity will not be handled in your favor.

Virgo

August 23-September 22

Your intellectual pursuits get a boost from the Sun and Mercury starting today. With your ability to carefully think things through, you may be able to unsnarl drama that arises within a group or community you are part of. If the group’s purpose has been forgotten or was unclear to begin with, that may be part of the problem. Try to negotiate a balance between meeting the human needs of the individual people involved and staying focused on your collective goals.

Libra

September 23-October 22

You feel like you cannot please everyone in a conflict between work and family today. You are trying to move forward with your ambitions, but someone needs you at home. You need to clarify your actual shared responsibilities, because at least one person involved in the situation has expectations that are not in line with reality. Whether the error in perception is on your end or the other person’s, the truth will set you free, so insist on digging it up.

Scorpio

October 23-November 21

You want to explore and broaden your perspective, but your early conditioning may be holding you back. You are known for your loyalty, and you might feel like straying from your roots would betray them somehow. However, feelings of renewal can come from your close relationships now. Giving one of them the credit for a change you need to make anyway could help you rationalize the change to yourself, because you would still be able to see yourself as loyal to those you love.

Sagittarius

November 22-December 21

People may see you as manipulative with money. Maybe you have been using manipulation to avoid some task you should be doing, then the exaggerated perceptions that others developed fed on themselves. You now have the ability to focus productively on your responsibilities, though, so tackle whatever is truly your end of the bargain. Those involved in your situation will take note of this, and it should inspire them to see you in a different light and engage more collaboratively with you.

Capricorn

December 22-January 19

A close relationship could feel clingy and demanding today. The other person’s emotional needs may seem intimidating to you, and your own fear of your inability to meet their needs only makes the situation worse. Your idea of what they require from you may be exaggerated, though, if you are holding yourself responsible for solving all their problems. They might just want you to be present with them. If they feel up to it, doing something fun together could lift the heavy vibe.

Aquarius

January 20-February 18

Your home and family life is getting a boost from the Sun and Mercury starting today, making the whole next month a great time to dig into domestic improvements. In the short term, though, disputes over chores and other routine responsibilities could get surprisingly out of hand when hidden resentment gets triggered in you. If everything is on you, you may need to open a discussion of how every member of your household can pull their weight in a way that's appropriate to their abilities.

Pisces

February 19-March 20

You are inundated with communication today. Social media might be particularly overwhelming if people are discussing heavy issues. The actual facts of your own experience may not fit with a narrative that someone else is pushing with great emotional force. You cannot win with people like that right now, especially in a group setting, so just get out of there. If you are able to have a one-on-one conversation in person, you would at least be more likely to reach understanding.
