It may take awhile for the morning to come into crisp focus; draft out a tight agenda to maximize the day’s potential.

A great deal can be accomplished and you enjoy satisfaction that comes when you cross tasks off the list.

Meditation, reflection and organization that allows the integration of old or different concepts with the new can work to your advantage. Once the strategy is in place, get going with confidence.

If you flounder, don’t be surprised by another’s directed path. People who don’t mind getting their hands dirty or who move past squeamishness, make strides.

Today benefits those who know what they want to get done and do it. Venus enters her cycle through Virgo, which emphasizes the value of working routines over the next few weeks. Implement an exercise, diet or health routine if you want it to succeed.

If it’s time to bring home a new pet, this is a good day for it.

The Virgo Moon enjoys support from Jupiter, which signals an auspicious time to realize wishes and tap into good fortune. Take note of whomever crosses your path today, whether it’s for the first time, a re-acquaintance or the comfortable contact of an old friend.

Be sure to offer a gift to those you encounter, which can be as simple as a smile or as generous as a listening ear. Good fortune comes to those willing to share with others and who come from a generous heart.

The moon goes void-of-course/VOC* at 11:20 PM ET.

*in Virgo, the void-of-course is great for organizing, finessing a project or exercise routine and clearing out closets. What is something seemingly insignificant that you’d like to make time to do? This may be the perfect time for it. More about the Moon VOC
