Welcome to Auchterlonie on Astrology for the first full week of November. This is the week of the Full Moon in Taurus on Tuesday, Nov. 12.
If you follow my Podcasts on Facebook or my Website, this is the third week we look at some fun facts of astrology. Like the meaning of “The Ides of March,” and the names of the days of the week and how they are derived from the names of the planets.
But first, the week ahead.
Thursday, Nov. 7, Venus and Mars are not all right, but a sensitive and imaginative Moon in Pisces can hopefully dream up a surprise to make things better. It was Nov. 7, 1929 that the Museum of Modern Art in New York City opened its doors for the first time. Franklin Delano Roosevelt won his fourth term as U.S. president on this day in 1944.
Friday, Nov. 8, sees the Sun and Saturn at exactly 60 degrees from one another, known as a sextile in astrology. It says we have an opportunity to make our vocation or career take a step up.
This on a day when the Moon moves from sensitive Pisces to fearless Aries in the morning. It was Nov. 8, 1960 that John F. Kennedy was elected as U.S president, the youngest in history. He was 43.
Saturday, Nov. 9, Retrograde Mercury hooks up with Pluto, making for a mental review of something to do with your motivation. Or perhaps an ongoing conversation about a shared financial matter. In the afternoon, be on the lookout for an impulsive move that could be dangerous. Superstar astronomer Carl Sagan was born on Nov. 9, 1934, and Albert Einstein won the Nobel Prize in physics on this day in 1921.
Sunday, Nov. 10, we see the Moon move from impulsive Aries into earthy Taurus at 6:17 p.m.
So a potentially accident prone morning gives way to a more laid-back evening. And it was Nov. 10, 1975, that The Edmund Fitzgerald succumbed to Lake Superior when the gales of November came early. And funny man Tracy Morgan celebrates number 51 today.
Monday, Nov. 11, is Remembrance Day. The Remembrance Day Ceremony has played a major role in Remembrance since 1931. Every year, at the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, we gather in memorial parks, community halls, workplaces, schools and homes to stand in honour of all who have fallen.
Together, we observe a moment of silence to mark the sacrifice of the many who have fallen in the service of their country, and to acknowledge the courage of those who still serve. This year is an especially thoughtful Remembrance Day as the Sun and Retrograde Mercury meet in Scorpio just before 11 a.m., and urge us to remember the passing and sacrifice of someone dear. The brilliant Kurt Vonnegut was born this day in 1922. Leonardo DiCaprio is 45 today.
Tuesday, Nov. 12 is the day of the Full Moon in Taurus at 8:34 a.m. It’s an emotional day, when stubbornness is likely the rule but when Mars in Libra and Jupiter in Sagittarius make a friendly connection that brings good fortune to all, and brings good health to some.
London, Ontario’s Ryan Gosling is 39 today. Anne Hathaway is 37.
Wednesday, Nov. 13, sees the Moon move from Taurus into Gemini early in the morning on a day when Retrograde Mercury is busy with hook-ups to Saturn and to Neptune. Review and rethink and maybe wait for a chance to put thoughts intro action down the road, in a few weeks from now. Whoopi Goldberg is 64 and Jimmy Kimmel is 52 today.
Again, a reminder to please check out my Podcast either on the Facebook page “Auchterlonie on Astrology” or on my website at https://www.lookingupwithbill.com/.
This week it’s all about the names of the days of the week and how they connect to the planets. And on the website you will find an offer to have your birth chart done by me, with a look at your year ahead to boot.
Until next time, remember we are all stardust. We are golden. So shine on!
