This morning we wake up to the Moon in Virgo ready to get back down to business. The Moon finds endurance and fortitude through a solid trine with Pluto at 4:39 AM. We wake up ready to kick this day in the teeth. Our morning hours have us deeply involved in our daily chores and plowing up the Earth behind us. Head down. Focus. Trudge! Setting your work to motivating and supportive music is also of benefit today. The Sun is waxing into a softening sextile with Neptune (7:11 PM). We are geared to work hard but we are also geared to retain our compassion and gentleness as we do. Plus, our work could foster a creative flair under Sun/Neptune.
Be sure to drink plenty of water as you are toiling. Don't neglect the needs of your physical body as you are chipping away at the stone wall in front of you. Take care of your machinery to avoid it breaking down in the middle of your tasks.
There is a bit of harshness that waxes into our early evening hours. The Moon opposes Chiron at 2:15 PM and, then, meets Venus in Gemini by square at 3:38 PM. At the same time, the Moon is also waxing into trine with Mars in Taurus. We hear the call of our responsibilities, but we are also feeling the tension between duty and desire. We may reflect upon lighter days when the work didn't seem as heavy. We may have to cash our chips in early due to sore muscles (Moon/Chiron) or emotional distractions. However, the trine from Mars to the Moon continually beckons us back into our groove.
In this, you are going to have to decide if you are physically able to continue enduring the work load you took on this morning. If you need a break, take one and don't feel guilty about it. But, if you feel like you are able to push through and finish your plowing; then, promise yourself a treat at the end of a full days work. Only you can make the call as to where you fall within this spectrum. Be very honest with yourself in your assessment and deliver whatever it is you need be that recuperation time or extended work hours.
With the Sun in aspect to Neptune and the Moon in aspect to Pluto, it is entirely possible that we may not realize how much Earth we actually overturned in our morning hours. That can be taxing on the physical body and I encourage you NOT to ignore those physical needs. Your health needs to be a priority regardless of what it is you trying to accomplish.
