Update: 8:28AM Labor Day in the United States is traditionally celebrated by giving the day off to those who work so hard for personal and national prosperity. Add a "u" to the letter lineup for the Canadian equivalent in May. Add a change of Mercury to the equation, and you can be sure that the political implications of labor unions will be highlighted.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). Silence is golden, and you'll use this precious commodity for its full value now. You might regret what you say, but you won't regret what you didn't say.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Don't discount the seemingly fun, young and frivolous stuff just because it's not serious. Some endeavors build your shrewdness and strength; others, your compassion and joy. Both are necessary.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). It's not how powerful a person is, but what they do with that power that matters most. You now realize your advantage, and it's not something you take lightly. You will choose your next move carefully.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). It will be important to distinguish between business and personal relationships. A professional attitude will get you far. If there's a question about what's appropriate, you are wise to err on the conservative side.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It will feel a bit like you're waking in the dark today. Good on you for committing to bold risks. Don't put your second foot down until you know the first one is in place.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). It's a mental game you're playing today, and unfortunately for your opponent, you've thought your way around much of it already. You'll complete the thought process this evening.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Today, funny people will tell the truth and serious people will lie. You'll be the discerning one who can see through the illusion others are trying to create. Share your gift.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If you choose to fight, you choose destruction. If you choose to educate, you choose building. There is a time and a place for both. Which do you think will serve this time and place the best?
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Be stronger. Forgive. The weak can't do it. It's up to you now. How do you feel? Strong enough? OK then. Forgive. They'll follow your example.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Something you told yourself recently is not quite right. Is there another voice that rings true in your ears? People are rooting for you. What is the choice that truly will serve you?
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The conundrum of the day: You want your freedom. You've earned it. And yet you still choose some responsibilities and relationships that keep you locked into certain behaviors.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Call it persistence -- or maybe there's another motive that you haven't figured out yet. But someone keeps reaching out to you even though you are not reaching back.
