General Daily Review for July 14, 2023
We are all learning to heal. Swift Mercury grumbles at steady Saturn, hindering the achievement of goals and overcoming obstacles on the way. Thankfully, the sensitive Moon is partnering with gentle Chiron to remind us that healing is possible! We must change what we can for the better. Finally, a confident Sun sextile groundbreaking Uranus at 7:02 pm ET will bring pleasant surprises that can boost our self-confidence. Let’s make improvements where we can, and leave the rest up to the universe.
March 21 – April 19
Delays can discourage you. You may have been excited to start a new project or take a test that will help you move towards your goals, but an unexpected setback can prevent you from taking even one step forward – it can actually set you back a few steps. While it may seem like you should give up, try to view this as a cosmic invitation to turn around. Another unexpected opportunity may inspire you to ask yourself if what you are striving for is really what you want.
April 20 – May 20
At this time, you may be encouraged to express yourself more. You may have been hoping to be selected for a different career, training opportunity, or even winning a competition, but the answer you get is probably not what you were hoping for. Going back to your roots and connecting with your family members or other mother figures in your life can strengthen you to work on your self-confidence until you are inspired and ready to try again. Do not give up!
May 21 – June 20
You can be at the mercy of people who have power over you. There are milestones that you want to achieve in your life, but unfortunately, you are probably unable to set the rules for yourself – and those who can can make the rules work against you. Even if the odds are not in your favor, try to be patient. Rules and authorities are subject to change, so while today’s doors are closed, trust that the near future will open for you.
June 21 – July 22
Your financial stability may stand in the way of your true journey. Perhaps a lack of funds or a stable income is preventing you from embarking on the educational adventure you want to undertake, whether you prefer to go on an educational trip or enroll in an enrichment course. Do not give up! Do some digging and see if you can find more help or a more economical way to get from point A to point B.
July 23 – August 22
Perhaps you are afraid to explore your personal depth. Even if you are regularly in touch with your normal emotions and feel like you know who you are as a cheerful Leo, you can ignore your shadow side and avoid those parts of yourself that you are ashamed of. Taking some time to analyze why you choose not to acknowledge your shadow will increase your confidence – you may be able to shed any remaining guilt entirely! You are allowed to lay down any burden you have taken on.
August 23 – September 22
Your spiritual goals may elude you. Other people potentially distract you from these goals by showering you with their opinions and advice and confusing you about your life priorities, pushing you down someone else’s path instead of your own. When you find yourself doing things you didn’t care about before, you may resent those who changed you. Instead of blindly following the plans they make for you, make sure YOU care about what you do.
September 23 – October 22
Hidden enemies can interfere with your success. If you have a friend or family member who hears your plans and seems to always criticize you and never praise you, that person may be trying to influence you more than usual. Their intentions towards you may or may not be positive, but regardless of their goals, their advice is unlikely to work as you hoped. Looking inside yourself and giving yourself permission to gently refute them can be your most inspiring path.
October 23 – November 21
You can now be pressured by the creative block. This block can prevent you from coming up with solutions to problems or working on a special project—or even make you feel like you’re in a fog when communicating with others. Calling a friend or doing mundane chores like housework can give your mind space to wander around and find solutions to your problems while you focus on other things. Stepping back from the problem should help solve it.
November 22 – December 21
Stepping out of your comfort zone can knock you off your feet. You usually enjoy expanding your horizons, but today a place or activity might be particularly unfamiliar or uncomfortable for you, causing you to worry about getting stuck or feeling out of place. Opening your mind to this unfamiliar place and its people should allow you to pass the time, because closing yourself to anything new will only make time seem stretched out. Absorb all you can while you’re there.
December 22 – January 19
You may be your own worst enemy during this time. You may have isolated yourself or taken on more work than you should have. Specifics aside, it’s often hard to deal with negative self-talk or an endless to-do list, but someone might just arrive and break the monotony. A friend can take your mind off your own work and remind you of all the beauty in the world—in a park, a museum, or any other place where creativity flourishes. Avoid fighting yourself.
January 20 – February 18
The world you want may not come today. You may come across a peer or acquaintance with whom you would like to have a strong relationship, but under the current circumstances, this may be difficult to pull off. They want one outcome and you want another, and without any compromise it can end badly. Do your best to talk to them – and be honest about how much you care about them and the issue. Try to meet in the middle.
February 19 – March 20
Right now there may be more work than one person can handle. You may be given a few tasks that you are not ready for, or you may have a lot of work to do at home that needs to be completed in a very short amount of time. While you may understandably feel overwhelmed by the amount of effort these responsibilities will require, have faith in yourself and believe that you can only do the best you can. Everything else is out of your control.
