General Daily Insight for May 14, 2023
A flowing vibe supports our efforts to get stuff done today. While the intuitive Pisces Moon sextiles both visionary Uranus and the vibrant Sun, clever workarounds might push us further than pure nose-to-the-grindstone effort. Luna then unites with idealistic Neptune, so we may need to be ready to rein in overly ambitious plans. Fortunately, Mercury, the planet of talking and thinking, stations direct at 11:17 pm EDT, strengthening our sense of reason. Seeing what's possible requires a blend of both imagination and practicality!

March 21-April 19
Money issues may start to unsnarl themselves today. Even if the actual amounts in your accounts don't change, your judgment regarding your next steps is likely to become clearer after thoughtful Mercury turns direct in your 2nd House of Finances. In a quiet moment, you might also suddenly remember a crucial fact you'd forgotten. Although it could be easy to see how other people have contributed to any challenges you're experiencing, remember that you're responsible for being on your own team.
April 20-May 20
Standing up to your social network might be necessary now. As fact-focused Mercury shakes off a murky retrograde in your 1st House of Identity, you may need to address an inaccurate story that's circulating about you. Even so, you can only control your own efforts -- some people will believe what they want to believe regardless. They could be committed to a particular narrative for their own reasons, so consider for yourself whether you're equipped to fill the role they've cast you in.
May 21-June 20
You're currently likely to have a breakthrough in your understanding of a frustrating career situation. Perhaps you've long been holding out hope that a particular authority figure is going to help you in some significant way. This person, intentionally or not, may have contributed to the misleading impression by making unrealistic promises. As discerning Mercury spins direct in your 12th House of Secrets, think carefully about what you've actually seen them do when no one important is looking. Actions speak louder than words.
June 21-July 22
An organization you belong to could currently be ready to roll out a new strategy. No matter how much planning has been done in advance, however, some policies and workflows that sounded good in theory probably won't land quite right once you start trying them out. Although it might be tempting to blame yourself or others for any challenges you encounter, pointing fingers won't alter the reality that change is hard! Make an effort to go with the flow, even if it's not comfortable yet.
July 23-August 22
Forward motion on a professional matter is possible now. If you've been waiting on input from someone else, it's time to ask them what's up. They might be embarrassed to admit it if the truth is that they aren't sure what they want, but their honest answer should at least give you something to work with. You may need to be careful to avoid prying into their personal business, though -- keep your questions focused on things you have a legitimate reason to know.
August 23-September 22
Your efforts to plan a trip can move ahead at present. When messenger Mercury turns direct in your 9th House of Journeys, you're likely to see answers to questions that had you stumped. Still, someone you're traveling with may seem frustratingly unfocused. They might have some good ideas mixed in with their less realistic ones, so search for ways to work with what they give you. You're better off in the long run making them feel included, even if doing everything yourself would be easier.
September 23-October 22
Your patient work unsnarling a bureaucratic matter could begin to pay off. Beyond mountains, however, there are yet more mountains. Although logical Mercury is turning direct, it's still moving through your mysterious 8th house a little while longer. Perhaps you'll reach a point in your progress where you're so confused that you don't even know what questions to ask. It's okay to let someone else do the talking. The effort you make is important, but remember that it's not all on you!
October 23-November 21
Relationship drama may start to calm down today. As networker Mercury moves direct in your 7th House of Close Connections, you might find it easier than normal to get along with your loved ones. With others causing less chaos for you, you have more room to figure out what you want. If you don't know yet, that's totally understandable! Take a moment to recognize the energy you've put into hashing things out with everyone else lately, and let yourself relax without guilt.
November 22-December 21
A sudden rush of productivity at work could be super rewarding. Rapid-fire Mercury spins direct in your dutiful 6th house, helping you hack your way through your to-do list. If you're on a roll, you may be better off putting in extra time to keep going, even if this means letting yourself fall behind on some of your usual home routines. You can always catch up on those tasks later, but you can't easily recapture the unique thrill of a flow state.
December 22-January 19
How you talk about a current change in your personal life can make a difference in the way it's received. The situation may still be developing, so you genuinely might not have all the answers that people want from you. On the other hand, some ways of being vague are more likely to increase the drama than others. Reacting with intense emotions could make your interrogators concerned. Even when you've got reasons to be frustrated, try to describe what you do and don't know calmly.
January 20-February 18
Changes you're currently pursuing at home could be costing more than you planned. Are the results you're getting worth it? Sentimental attachment may be keeping you tied to a particular course of action that's not the most efficient. You have the right to choose it anyway, but it would be wiser to make that choice consciously, knowing that there are alternatives you've decided against. At this point, doing some comparison shopping can also show you a unique way to get the best of both worlds.
February 19-March 20
You might need to tell others you've changed your mind about something you told them recently. While your updated answer is probably an improvement in some way, the thought of going back on your word could also be embarrassing. Even if people are disappointed when they first hear the news, they'll ultimately be better off when you supply them with the most accurate information possible to plan around. Your position isn't necessarily done shifting, though. Try to give yourself more room to grow this time.
