“There is no excellence without labor. One cannot dream oneself into either usefulness or happiness.” – Liberty Hyde Bailey
Overnight, Venus – the planet of love, pleasure, finances, and values – joined the Sun in earthy, refining Virgo (12:05 am) where it will reside until September 29th. This transit potentially ups our desire to be of service or utility to others in practical ways that not only impart our love or appreciation for those we care about but also aim to improve the natural order of things around us.
Self-improvement endeavors may also gain traction now with Virgo being the sign of health and wellness; there may also be more of an affinity or fondness now for formally charting our results or progress in these areas. Organizing our finances may also be something else that we are now more concerned about.
(I actually dreamt last night of marking down all my daily activities and checking how much time I spent on each endeavor which, I’ve read and know, is a great way to hold ourselves accountable for what we do – or fail to do each day. Too – at least in my case – it can often be very humbling to see how long it sometimes takes me to perform even the simplest of tasks.)
Since Virgo also governs work and job skills Venus’s passage through this sign may result in our taking more pleasure at this time in our work or in perfecting our craft. It is also an excellent time to take measures to improve the workplace.
On the shadow side, Venus in Virgo tends to worry about relationships. Being overly critical of others can also be a turn-off.
“Watch out for the joy-stealers: gossip, criticism, complaining, faultfinding, and a negative, judgmental attitude.” – Joyce Meyer
The Waxing Moon is also in ambitious, methodical Capricorn today, boding well for follow-through with tasks. The Moon’s trine to the Virgo Sun (8:25 pm) also helps to promote a greater sense of inner and outer well-being.

Born On This Day: Late British rock star and lead vocalist of Queen, Freddie Mercury (1946-1991):
“You know, I designed the Queen crest. I simply combined all the creatures that represent our star signs – and I don’t even believe in astrology.”
Hope it’s a good one. Please be safe and well!
