General Daily Insight for May 12, 2021
There’s a flurry of energy early this morning as the intuitive Moon spins through the last few degrees of stubborn Taurus, and while she’s there she will square off against Jupiter, creating a bit of a bang when we’re least expecting it. It will be easier to get in gear once the Moon shifts into Gemini at 8:43 am EST, acting like a cosmic caffeine boost. The day can take a productive turn in the afternoon as messenger Mercury aligns with karmic Saturn, so it’s a great day to make long-lasting plans.
March 21-April 19
People will be bringing lots of interesting information your way today, and you’d be wise to listen up, because this information has the ability to impact you for a long time to come. While you’re so busy focusing on your own plans, make a point to touch base with the people in your life, especially the wider net of acquaintances that you’ve built up over the years. Someone will tell you something that is worth its weight in gold, so be open to discovery.
April 20-May 20
A path is opening up in front of you today, and that path may lead you to the very top of the professional ladder. You don’t have to make the entire climb all at once, but this is the perfect time to start planning your ascent, taking stock of all the things you’ll need in order to reach that lofty place you want to be. A VIP or boss might offer a helping hand, and you’d be wise to accept it.
May 21-June 20
You get an extra burst of energy this morning, so don’t be shocked if your morning coffee seems to pack a little more punch than usual. Use this gift of forward momentum to look beyond your usual reality and search out new vistas -- ones that have the ability to inspire new ideas that really light a fire inside of you. There is something special waiting for you just beyond the horizon, so get ready to seek it out.
June 21-July 22
Things could feel a little heavy today in a way that makes you feel like you’re missing something obvious, or like you have to mentally translate every word coming out of other people’s mouths, even if you’re speaking the same language. While it might not be easy trying to wade through these odd energies, you can get to the bottom of the issue by taking your hands off the steering wheel and letting life take over. It knows where it’s taking you.
July 23-August 22
There’s a sociable energy in the air for you today, but it isn’t so much about light-hearted hangouts or quick chats. Rather, you should get down to the nitty-gritty with people in your life, digging into the subjects you might have been a little hesitant to approach on more casual terms. It doesn’t have to be serious, but you can make major headway on a complicated topic right now -- especially one that would normally give you a major headache.
August 23-September 22
Today is all about finding balance, both within and without yourself. Look around your life and ask yourself where you have been giving more than getting. Or, perhaps it’s the other way around. If the scales of your life seem to be wildly out of sync, then it’s time to start getting on equal footing again. You don’t have to jump from one extreme to another, or change overnight, rather, take small steps to get to a place that’s more in-sync with the world.
September 23-October 22
There’s a creative vibration coming your way, encouraging you to unleash your inner artist. If you don’t think of yourself as artistic, think of it as unleashing your inner child and giving it free rein to do as it pleases for the day. Instead of holding yourself up to high expectations, you can be a little bit messy, a little bit wild, and a little bit loud, just for the fun of it. You shouldn’t cause a scene, but you should assert your individuality.
October 23-November 21
It’s a good day to be productive and get your act together. Whether you’ve got all your ducks in a row or you’re scrambling to keep up appearances, take a minute this morning and center yourself before engaging with the world. Think about ways in which you can work smarter, not harder, and get the results you need to feel like you’re on top of as many aspects of your life as possible. Find the loose threads today, then start weaving them together.
November 22-December 21
You'll want to speak your feelings today, but you can't expect to just throw everything at the wall and see what sticks -- you'll need to communicate with real thought and intent. There’s a strong planetary alignment happening across your communication sectors, and while it is positive, it’s not exactly light-hearted. Make a point to empathize with everyone you come into contact with; something that seems like banter to you could easily push the buttons of someone else, and you don’t want to offend anyone.
December 22-January 19
There's a lot coming your way today, and while you’ll be able to handle it all with a calm and collected approach, you might find life feels a bit like a game of Whack-a-Mole in the process. Lots of little disturbances will be happening -- lots of little things that are fine when they come one at a time, but that become overwhelming when you have to deal with them all. Take a deep breath and do your best to keep a cool head.
January 20-February 18
Even if you’ve got a million things on your to-do list, it looks as though you won’t be terribly interested in checking off any of them -- not when there are a million more exciting things for you to focus on. The planets are giving you the day off from your responsibilities to pursue more pleasurable things, so go ahead and put your desires front and center. If people keep asking things of you, tell them you’ll get back to them tomorrow; today should be all about you.
February 19-March 20
There is an emphasis on solace and quiet for you today. You are getting ready to enter a major period of change and manifestation very soon, but it isn’t here just yet, and before it arrives, it would be best to make a point to detox some negativity in your life. Look around and ask yourself what no longer serves you. If there are behaviors or relationships you have outgrown, then start weeding them out of your life, making room for the new.
