9/7/2010 Another early am VOC* moon, from 4:17 to 5:53 am ET. Blessed are the early morning meditators, the rest of you enjoy a lovely sleep.

When you rise the moon is in Virgo and it’s time to get to work after the holiday weekend. You may feel particularly focused, especially if you’re a Virgo or Capricorn, but don’t fall under the spell of routine. This is not a day to begin fresh, but to finish up. It’s terrific to plan strategies and projects but try to avoid starting anything brand new for a couple of days.

This is the day to clear your desk and prepare. Tomorrow is the New Moon in Virgo, which begins a cycle of diligence in routines, priorities for health and attention to craftmanship.

*Moon VOC/Void-of-Course: Avoid signing contracts, investing in a big purchase or beginning new projects or important conversations. Perfect time for clearing away clutter, finishing up loose ends, meditating or following serendipity. The “mood” of the period will be colored by the sign it is in… in Leo, you do well to play: window-shop, go to a museum or performance, flirt, make some artwork.
