Many of us will be squeezing in some fun activities during this “farewell to summer” weekend while others will be working. Virgo represents the workers of the world, so let’s keep them in mind as they go about the business of making things easier for those of us with the days off. If you happen to be working this weekend, bless you! You are appreciated.
I’m always grateful for the folks who make my vacation time and holidays easy. Without their services, I’d be much more tired and not having nearly as much fun. So if I go out to dinner, I’ll add an extra 10% to the tip. Using public transportation? Someone’s minding the wheels that get me where I want to go. I remind myself to be patient if I encounter delays. If I’m home watching tv, there are folks at the stations who are making sure I get my tube time in without interruption. Thanks to all the bird men out there monitoring the satellites and beaming whatever I want back to me. As a matter of fact, here’s a great big THANK YOU to everyone who’s minding the store while I get to sit back and relax.

Read the article by astrologer Patricia Lantz on the history of Labor Day and the labor unions, Labor Day was Born in an Attempt to Please the Working People of America on her site at the Atlanta Examiner.

Did you know that the state minimum wage in Kansas is $2.65? That’s not a typo. It really is $2.65. Now, most people are earning more than that, but the state’s minimum wage hasn’t been increased since 1988. Can you imagine? Kansas’ wage will be brought up to the federal minimum in January 2010, but shouldn’t they have joined the 20th Century while still in the 20th Century? Read more from the Joplin Globe.
To everyone, working or not, I hope you get to see that great big glorious Pisces moon tonight. It was astonishing last night. She’ll start hiding from us now, retreating again. Next time she’s full, she’ll be the biggest and brightest of the year ~ Harvest Moon, October 3rd.
