“‘The environment has to be balanced against the economy.’ This quote portrays environmental concerns as a luxury, views measures to solve environmental problems as incurring a net cost, and considers leaving environmental problems unsolved to be a money-saving device. This one-liner puts the truth exactly backwards. Environmental messes cost us huge sums of money both in the short run and in the long run; cleaning up or preventing those messes saves us huge sums in the long run, and often in the short run as well. In caring for the health of our surroundings, just as of our bodies, it is cheaper and preferable to avoid getting sick than to try to cure illnesses after they have developed.”
— Jared Diamond

If Your Birthday is Sept. 10
(The Day of Private Goals) | Virgo Birthday Reading | All Other Signs
You are rediscovering who you are, in a new and bold way. However, who you are changes continuously, and being stuck in one identity or self-concept is an illusion. Give yourself permission to be more than you might ordinarily believe, and more freedom to move freely than you typically would. Rather than ask permission, inform people of your plans.
Written in the Planets
Mars in early Virgo forming a trine to Juno in Capricorn poses the question of service. In the present environment, there are many possible options when it comes to supporting other people, or making a difference in your community. Giving yourself in service to a cause is a wonderful way to create a lasting positive effect. If you’re not sure where to begin, start with what sparks your passion for justice almost autonomically.
