The Moon is void-of-course/VOC* at 0:13 AM ET.

The Virgo Moon stint begins at 3:34 AM and offers a couple of days of tremendous support for whatever goals were initiated at the New Moon.

Early risers may experience a bit of friction; get any frustration out through an exercise routine or some focused breath work. Whether your craft requires the skill of your hands or just your brain, no shortcuts.

Hone your message meticulously; the more time and focus you give it, the more precise the mark. You may benefit from perspective in the late afternoon. A walk in nature provides an antidote for tunnel-vision.

If you can’t get outside, a yoga or tai chi break can provide much needed mental hygiene. Or put on a favorite song and dance!

This may be an evening that requires you to hunker down to produce results, but all work and no play makes Jack/Jane rather dull.

Virgo is the sign of work, service and dedication to craft, but it also speaks to the value of routine, diet and health. When there seems to be so much to do, then it is highly important to give your body regular release, otherwise it is difficult to go the distance.

You may need to make an adjustment, either with someone on your team or a physical situation; you want to have the right structure in place to enable successful implementation of your goals.

If you’re up or out late, confusion rules, so either keep a sense of humor or admit it’s time for rest.

*Moon VOC/Void-of-Course… in Leo, you do well to play: window-shop, go to a museum or performance, flirt, and make some artwork. Get in touch with a spirit of generosity; warm people with compliments. Observe whether or not you get the appreciation you require and if not, give yourself a lift. More about the Moon VOC
