This week on Auchterlonie on Astrology I’ll look at the full moon in Leo on Sunday, Feb. 9, and the period from Thursday Feb. 6 to Wednesday Feb. 12.
On my podcast I’ve got a look at Indigenous North American astrology, and the week of Feb. 9 through Saturday, Feb. 15. The website is https://www.lookingupwithbill.com/podcasts.html.
Now, the week ahead.
Thursday, Feb. 6: The Moon in Cancer is in a dreamy mood today with an extra bit of healing for those who need it. Good health news is here for some of us. And even though the evening is stressful, there’s an opportunity to make things better by making a change in activities. The Great Bambino, Babe Ruth, was born Feb. 6, 1895 in Baltimore. He was often quoted as in: “I only have one superstition: I make sure to touch all the bases when I hit a home run.”
Friday, Feb. 7: Venus moves from imaginative Pisces into aggressive Aries this afternoon, and the Moon moves from sensitive Cancer into loving Leo in the supper hour. So this is a day where feelings change from soft to fiery. And a challenge from Uranus later tonight asks us what we really want the future to hold. Changing plans will not be easy. Today is the 46th birthday for NBA MVP (two times) and fine Canadian, Steve Nash. Born in South Africa, Nash grew up in Vancouver, B.C.
Saturday, Feb. 8: This is a pokey day where underlying stress nags at us – or at least most of us – all day long. Try to remain focused on the things and people you love and try to make changes where you can. The First World War flying ace with an airport named after him, Billy Bishop, was born Feb. 8, 1894 in Owen Sound. He is credited with the most hits of any pilot in that war, but also flew for several years in the Second World War.
Sunday, Feb. 9: Oooww it’s another full Moon, this time the constellation Leo and at 2:33 a.m. EST. There may be news today that changes your travel plans. In addition to the high emotional energy of the Sun opposite the Moon today, there are eight other connections between the Moon, including Pluto, Saturn, Venus, Uranus, Mars and more. And if that weren’t enough, Mercury in Pisces and Pluto in Capricorn connect on an idea that is asking to be recognized and taken seriously. The lady who gave pop music an extra shot of creativity, intelligence and love from the late 50’s until today, Carol King turns 78. With unforgettable songs like Up on the Roof and Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow she won audiences for decades. She has come out of retirement with a new song, One, to urge America to get healed.
Monday, Feb. 10: Venus and Chiron connect in the middle of the night as the Moon continues through Virgo all day. The best of this Monday is knowing what feels correct and making use of that knowing to heal an old wound. On Feb. 10, 1904, the only Canadian-born world heavyweight champion boxer, and the first to travel the globe to defend his title, Tommy Burns, won a title fight against Jack Palmer in four rounds. made 13 title defences despite often being the underdog due to his size.
Tuesday, Feb. 11: Most of today it’s the Moon in Virgo. At least until 6:37 p.m. when she moves on to balancing, peace-loving Libra. Although this peace isn’t so steady, courtesy of stress about the past and the future. People born with the Moon in Libra need extra reassurance that they are loved.
Wednesday, Feb. 12: Mercury in Pisces gets a helping hand from Saturn in Capricorn today. It’s an improvement on an idea that you likely have already thought of. And that’s good because once again, that Moon in Libra is being stressed out by other things in the sky.
Next week is the third quarter Moon in Scorpio on Saturday, Feb. 15. That and more, next week on Auchterlonie on Astrology here in The Local.
