General Daily Insight for September 04, 2023
Lady Luck is changing tactics today. Mercury in Virgo boosts the mood as it begins things with a trine to expansive Jupiter, while the Moon in Taurus will square off against Venus in expressive Leo. Jupiter turns retrograde in Taurus at 10:10 am EDT, beginning a four-month phase when we will find more satisfaction with what has already arrived in our lives rather than seeking out new vistas. When the Moon makes a final trine to Mercury, we can find easy understandings and harmonious resolutions.

A certain person or group could be very helpful, especially if you haven’t touched base in a while. Reach out.
July 23 – August 22
Moving mountains is great, but today you can step back from such impressive feats and catch your breath.
