TO LABOR OR NOT TO LABOR?

This Labor Day, the sun and Mars conjunction meld character and action into one seamless thrust. We are as we do, so it may be a little more difficult than normal to kick back and not do. Venus and Jupiter square off to highlight the many dangers of excess, including the excess of work. Just take the break. Chances are, you could use it.

TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Sept. 2): The solar return brings abundant health and vitality. You'll do what you set out to do, so make sure it's a terrific fit! Trial runs and tests are favored in the next six weeks. There's an advantageous financial arrangement in December. You'll advocate for someone in 2020; the karma you build with this will serve you later. Aries and Gemini adore you.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Charisma is a mysterious magnet. People who have "It" often don't know they have "It" and this enables them to wield "It" mercilessly. Being totally unaware of your powers of attraction will work well for you.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): If a method doesn't work to solve the problem it professes to, that doesn't mean the method doesn't work altogether. A successful solution to one problem will start as a failed solution to another.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21): Don't give up. You'll look at the distance ahead and, as impossible as it seems, you've already come really far. Take a rest if you have to. Replenish your energy, but only for a moment. Keep going.

CANCER (June 22-July 22): Not everyone in the general public represents the general public. And anyway, grouping people well will be key to getting the information and results you need for the optimum plan.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22): The spirit of competition is alive today. It's more fun when everyone agrees on some level that it is a competition, and when the rules are more or less clear. The prospect of winning brings your best qualities to the fore.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22): The questions you ask yourself will matter a great deal to the direction you take, to your state of mind and to your satisfaction level in an experience. Asking yourself questions about what you appreciate will increase your appreciation.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23): Compromise is a skill. It requires humility and careful listening. It requires creativity and cooperation. There are many endeavors that will not be made any better through compromise, but none of those is on the agenda today.

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21): The people you are dealing with have shortcomings, just as we all do. You're better off knowing what they are so that you can focus on nurturing and leveraging the equal and opposite strength.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): The value of a gift isn't something you will know as you unwrap it. Its value is not apparent all upfront. The value of a gift will grow and change over time as the gift gets used or not used.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19): No one wants to make a call and spend a long time on hold. Unfortunately, this is a metaphor for some relationships you've known, and you're careful to avoid the dynamic these days.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18): People adapt quickly to new rules and routines — much faster than you'd think. So don't be afraid to change the game. In fact, a new game is very much needed.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20): You're picking up skills, not all at once, but little by little over time. So don't allow yourself to become impatient or bored or to think that life isn't progressing fast enough. This timing you're experiencing is rather perfect.

ASTROLOGICAL QUESTIONS: "It feels like every bit of goodness and pleasure and happiness is all stuffed into this one person, and he doesn't love me back. I think of him a million times a day. I dream of us together. I drive by his house and go where I think he'll show up. We're perfect for each other. Why can't he see it? He's an Aries, and I'm a Leo."

Your passionate fire sign nature and heightened imagination are getting the best of you, Leo. It doesn't take a scientist to figure out that people in love are not in their right minds, but scientists have proven this time and again. In his book, "Love Sick: Love as a Mental Illness" Dr. Frank Tallis equates the symptoms of being in love with the symptoms of obsessive or depressive disorders. Knowing that you are in an altered state, it's important that you have structure around you to keep you in line. Stick to a routine. Tell friends that you need extra care, and ask them to check in on you and do things with you. Avoid new stressors. Give yourself the tenderness and support you would need if you were physically sick. You will get through this and begin thinking rationally again.

CELEBRITY PROFILES: Happy birthday to Virgo actress, director and producer Salma Hayek, who has several projects lined up in the months to come including Bliss, a sci-fi drama centered around a theory that humans live in "a harsh, alternative world simulation inside a beautiful, blissful reality." Hayek is a Virgo who uses her art to do the opposite of this premise; she turns the harsh realities of life and show business into beautiful creations.
