General Daily Insight for October 22, 2023 – New York Daily News

General daily statistics for October 22, 2023

Love, platonic or romantic, rules everything around us and can be intense! Loving Venus trines expansive Jupiter at 12:32 PM EDT, smoothing the way for a pleasant relaxation. On the other hand, the sensitive Moon moves into the fixed sign of Aquarius, just before communicative Mercury moves into another fixed sign, Scorpio – this can bring a sharper emotional and mental perspective. Additionally, Mercury conjuncts Saturn, increasing our attention to detail and our consistency. Don’t let love become an obsession.


March 21 – April 19

Difficult problems can be solved with a light heart. You may find that you feel more secure in the interpersonal and financial areas of your life, but you may still feel uncomfortable about certain aspects of your relationships. Be aware of any tendency to over-examine things, because the more you focus on the negative parts of your life, the bigger they can seem to grow in your mind – while the comforting areas shrink. Focus on what you want to happen and avoid what you don’t want.


April 20 – May 20

You may need to turn your attention back to your soul. Today is meant to treat yourself and have fun, no matter what your plans have been. You probably supported other people, potentially at self-sacrifice. No matter how strong your relationships are with these people, caring for them is not worth ignoring your own needs. Take at least 30 minutes for yourself, do whatever relaxes you best, and then move forward.


May 21 – June 20

Your inner peace grows and affects the people around you. Although stress will always appear in one form or another, you learn how to prevent it from negatively affecting your inner world. You also refuse to allow emotionally reactive individuals to control you. They may not intend to negatively influence anyone, but regardless of their intentions, drama queens can definitely darken the mood. Instead of letting them rock the boat, get out and steer the boat in a calmer direction.


June 21 – July 22

You can get by with a little help from friends. There are many opportunities for socializing all around – meeting up with friends, exploring a destination with other like-minded people and joining a club to meet potential friends with similar interests are all options. However, be aware that you may tend to come across as more intense or assertive at this time, especially if you are not aware of how your actions affect others. Try to stay friendly and fun.


July 23 – August 22

You may relax into your old self more than normal. Yet at the same time, you can become more aware of the people in your circle and their influence on your reputation. It’s possible that some friends have already left for specific people – and you’ve been spending more time with those specific people recently. Are they supporting your journey or keeping you stagnant? Listen to your heart, whether it’s telling you to move on from this group or cling to your past.


August 23 – September 22

Other people are currently seeing things that the mirror just won’t show you. You’re likely to learn more about yourself—and these revelations can come from both friends and enemies. It may be that a loved one is sharing something they noticed to help you, while your opponent is making painfully true jabs, but both are valid ways to understand yourself better. Even if what you learn about yourself contradicts what they believe about you, don’t worry. What matters is what you believe about yourself.


September 23 – October 22

The deeper levels of your psyche are currently accessible. The galactic haze might seem to soften the edges of the day, or you might just feel more tired than normal activities because everything feels like you’re walking through dreams. You can watch a movie that has an emotionally intense story, or you can go to a monument or museum that evokes strong emotions about a time long gone. Whatever you do, make sure you rest.


October 23 – November 21

How you express yourself can become a point of tension at any time. Relationships with friends are likely to run smoothly, but family or domestic connections could present a more challenging experience. Either on purpose or by accident, you may reveal to some relatives that you hold a controversial opinion. It’s alright! If they seem offended, you can call your friends who already share this opinion – they can probably back you up. You can say what’s really on your mind.


November 22 – December 21

What relaxes others may not relax you right now. Other people in your life may seem to be moving in slow motion – while they want to catch their breath, you could be craving adventure through extreme sports or wild rides. Anything to get your heart racing! This is what may be comforting to you, but you may not be in the right audience for a daring experience. You may have to go on your solo adventure, but make sure you stay safe!


December 22 – January 19

The fun just doesn’t stop for you today! You can take the energy of the day and be really joyful with it, so keep an eye out for events, festivals and other places where fun and creativity are highlighted. You can feel like a kid in a candy store during the day, but if you’re not careful, you can overdo it by spending all the money in your bank account or eating until you’re sick. Moderation is key.


January 20 – February 18

You may feel more in touch with your emotions now. It doesn’t matter if someone supports your journey or if you nurture peace all by yourself, the results you find should be overwhelmingly positive. You are able to listen to your heart with faith, as well as have compassion for those around you, which adds another layer of connection and friendship. Previous hurt feelings can be acknowledged and understood in a liberating way, so open your heart and let them drift away.


February 19 – March 20

Your friends are people too! The universe is reminding you to turn to your friends – where you may have thought they were pretty standard and stable people, you are finally ready to understand all the details of their truly complex personalities. Everyone is a little weird, and sometimes it takes a little digging to learn about their unique aspects, especially if they’re worried about damaging your friendship. Do your best to reassure them that it won’t (as long as it doesn’t hurt others).
