General Daily Insight for November 13, 2022
Learning from our mistakes is a high priority. As security-conscious Venus supports grounded Pluto, authority figures can be a source of stability if we're willing to seek them out. However, once inquisitive Mercury inflames impatient Mars at 10:47 am EST, jumping to our own wild conclusions might seem more efficient -- no matter how much drama it stirs up. The sensitive Cancer Moon then harmonizes with the Sun and Mercury, so our empathy for others' emotions can nudge us back on track.
March 21-April 19
Following your curiosity about a complicated topic could currently be rewarding for you, but you might feel irate when others seem to demand answers faster than you're able to provide them. Make an effort to operate from a place of emotional security, where you'll be able to recognize that they don't know the scale of their requests. As much as you may crave the glory of solving the mystery yourself, acknowledge when it's the right time to seek help from someone more experienced.
April 20-May 20
Conflict over a money matter could be weighing on a close relationship. With detail-oriented Mercury in your partnership sector talking past stubborn Mars in your finance zone, you may feel like you have to solve a problem all by yourself because you're the only one who sees its urgency. Fortunately, you're likely to get the information you want if you just ask the other person for it in a calm and nonjudgmental way, so don't waste any time getting stuck on your assumptions.
May 21-June 20
It might be your way or the highway today, Gemini! Even if you know pushing people around is not really living in line with your values, it could be hard to resist -- especially when it comes to chores or domestic routines. This is probably a sign that something in an interpersonal dynamic needs adjustment, although it might not be what you think it is. Thoughtfully reworking shared responsibilities in a way that gives you more control over your most vital concerns can relieve tension.
June 21-July 22
Your inhibitions could be dampening your creativity at the moment -- especially if a particular person is frustrating you. With articulate Mercury in your expressive 5th house challenging glowering Mars in your 12th House of the Subconscious, you might not have recognized this anger yet. Instead, you may wonder why you're doing anything at all, if they're just going to ruin it somehow. Seeking out a trusted adviser for a transformative pep talk can help you put the troublesome relationship in perspective.
July 23-August 22
Asking friends for advice about a situation in your home life could disappoint you. Due to fretful Mercury in your domestic zone nagging bulldozer Mars in your social sector, the awkward fit of their recommendations might be glaringly obvious to you right away. Although the people you're talking to may want to resolve the matter quickly to relieve their anxieties, you're the one who has to live with the final results. Try to recognize when thinking things through by yourself is a more useful approach.
August 23-September 22
You may know what others ought to be doing right now, and perhaps you won't hesitate to tell them. As verbal Mercury in your communication zone goads aggressive Mars in your authority sector, you might even begin sounding like a bully! If your friends have the courage to give you feedback of that sort, take it seriously. You're capable of speaking from a kinder part of yourself, but it'll probably require some thoughtful effort to determine exactly what you want to express.
September 23-October 22
Trying to understand a money matter, perhaps one involving complicated laws, could be frustrating for you now. That said, your worst enemy might be your feelings of inadequacy on the subject. There's nothing wrong with you if you don't know all the answers yet! Asking an authority figure for help will likely result in a more sympathetic response than you'd expect. They may even see possibilities you wouldn't have thought of on your own, so try to muster the courage to reach out.
October 23-November 21
Someone you share money or property with may be eager to make changes to your current arrangement. However, they shouldn't be able to do it without your approval -- and you don't have to provide that until you have every bit of necessary information, regardless of how much they protest. Asking nicely for what you want can help smooth things along. If you're able to make a case that thinking things through more thoroughly might also benefit them, all the better!
November 22-December 21
You may feel pressure to let a relationship move forward more quickly than you really find comfortable. Paradoxically, maybe you'd be open to the possibility if the connection was deeper -- you might be primarily repelled by perceived shallowness rather than speed. Showing your emotionally vulnerable side a little bit can give you the information you need to determine whether or not you want to continue solidifying things. If you feel good about this person, there's no shame in knowing what you want!
December 22-January 19
Your efforts to improve your health could provoke awkwardness with your friends at this time. Perhaps they don't understand your new diet or exercise program, and someone makes a critical comment about it. Does that mean you're better off avoiding the topic? Not necessarily! There may be one person in the group who needs to hear what you're saying, even if they don't admit it immediately. Connecting more closely with them can make any frustrations that got you to that point worth the trouble.
January 20-February 18
A competitive attitude could hinder your professional progress at the moment. Although trying to outdo someone else might excite you, such an effort is likely to be noticed by others in a negative way. The people you're trying to impress are probably more interested in how efficiently you can carry out the core tasks of your job. Just do your work attentively without turning things into a race or a fight, and you should slowly build the goodwill you seek.
February 19-March 20
Conflict with your family is possible. While your ideas may be excellent, pushing them on others is almost never a wise idea. Instead, begin searching for a solution that would allow all the different individuals involved to have more autonomy. The supportive connection based on shared beliefs that you're looking for might ultimately need to come from a peer group rather than from your relatives. Whatever your final situation is, you'll need to accept that reality in order to move forward.
