Today is Labor Day in the US. Labor Day is a holiday which, in my experience, is more about rest and fun than about honoring workers and the history of the labor movement in this country.
As the Moon is in Libra, I will diplomatically avoid further political commentary.
However, today will not be a day of rest, much as you might want it to be. The Sun joins with Mars around dawn EDT, firing up egos everywhere and inciting much aggressive action and bravado.
Mercury is moving up to join with Mars and the Sun tomorrow, so we are apt to speak first and think later (if at all.) Many will rashly spout strong opinions today.
You, too, would be wise to avoid gracefully any political discussion this Labor Day.
Meanwhile, Venus and Jupiter do not see eye-to-eye. Venus in Virgo has us feeling like perfecting our surroundings, ourselves, and everybody else, not so much like having fun. But Jupiter says, “Relax, be happy. Forget about work for a while.” This discomfort can lead to overdoing, so take it easy with food, drink, and spending. How this choice between work and fun plays out for you depends on your natal planetary placements.
Whatever you end up doing, Mars will have you do it hard!
The Moon encounters a challenge from Pluto as the sky brightens on the east coast, but most of us will be asleep. If you are up and about, you may run into challenges with authority, like maybe a cranky boss if you have to work on this Labor Day.
The Moon is then void-of-course all day from 4:34 AM until she enters Scorpio at 7:35 PM EDT. Best not to begin anything new today or make any rash purchases, as it likely will not work out as you hope.
