Now to the week ahead:
Thursday, Aug. 27: Sexy, serious and imaginative describe this Thursday. Sexy thanks to a generous connection between the Moon and Mars at breakfast. Serious because of the same kind of connection with the Sun and the Moon late tonight. And imaginative courtesy of Venus and Neptune in perfect harmony. The possibilities are yours to discover! It was Aug. 27, 2008 that the Democratic Party nominated their first African American candidate for president. Barrack Obama would go on to serve two full terms in the White House.
Friday, Aug. 28: A serious end to the work week, where work is made easier thanks to The Moon and Jupiter in the same place in Capricorn. Plus, Mercury and Uranus connecting in the most supportive fashion. Think long-term and count on Lady Luck being there for you. She was born in Windsor and grew up in Timmins and for a while lived in Nashville with CKTB’s morning host, Tim Denis. Her third album, Come on Over, sold over 40 million copies, and set her career on fire. Shania Twain turns 55 today.
Saturday, Aug. 29: It’s a super-serious Saturday, thanks to the Moon in Capricorn coming very close to Saturn and Pluto in that same sign, while Mercury in Virgo gets a bit of god-like energy from Jupiter, also in Capricorn. Feelings may seem business-like, but they will produce productive advances. One of Canada’s most talented guitarists and singers is also an astronaut. Today Chris Hadfield celebrates birthday number 61. He is most famous as the first Canadian to walk in space, and for his recording of David Bowie’s A Space Oddity.
Sunday, Aug 30: Tension is the word of the day today as Venus in Cancer opposes Pluto in Capricorn, while Mercury in Virgo opposes Neptune in Pisces. Try to be charming while exercising as much willpower as necessary. Be discriminating in what you say, even though your imagination wants to write the script. During the Second World War Hong Kong was occupied by Japan. On Aug. 30, 1945, Hong Kong was liberated by the British, setting up 75 years of British rule, and setting the stage for the conflict we see today.
Monday, Aug 31: This is a time of multiple opportunities. Trouble is, most of them come with fear and trepidation, because they ask for difficult changes. Think about what you want long-term, and what change you can make to help make it happen. He was born on Aug. 31, 1931, in Trois-Rivieres, Quebec. He won a record 17 Stanley Cups and the Hart Trophy, The Art Ross Trophy and the Conn Smythe Trophy. Jean Beliveau, who died in 2014, would have been 89 today.
Tuesday, Sep. 1: As the Moon moves into Pisces to set up tomorrow’s full Moon, clever Mercury in Virgo, and powerful Pluto in Capricorn, conspire to make positive moves where health matters and business issues ask for help. Jeffrey Buttle was born Sept. 1, 1982 in Smooth Rock Falls, Ontario. On Mar 22, 2008, he became the first Canadian since Elvis Stojko to win the men’s world skating title.
Wednesday, Sep 2: By far and away, this is the busiest day of the week with the full Moon in Pisces part of it at 1:21 a.m. This Full Moon sees the Sun in discriminating Virgo and the Moon in imaginative Pisces. Uranus, Mars, Mercury and Venus all have important roles to play. Your best advice comes through both your intense feelings, and your clever ideas. Get them working on the same page. And it was on Sept. 2, 1902 that Georges Melies’ film, A Trip to the Moon, was first seen in Paris. Martin Scorsese has an historic film, based on Melies’ 1902 work, playing now on Netflix. It is called Hugo, and is a treat to watch.
