This week on Auchterlonie on Astrology I look at the week of Sept. 10 through Sept 16, including the third quarter Moon in Gemini Thursday.
Check out Part 2 of my podcast at www.auchterlonieonastrology.ca where you will find a full month of Sept from AstroButterfly.
Now, the week ahead:
Thursday, Sept. 10: Today is the day of the third quarter Moon in Gemini, a day where quick and clever emotions may have difficulty listening to the finer details concerning truth. Mercury in Libra makes trouble by trying too hard to keep the peace. A delicate hand and dedication to honesty help resolve troubles before they get out of hand. Arnold Palmer was born in the town of Latrobe, PA, and is likely even more famous than Rolling Rock beer. He won 62 professional golf tours and was one of the original inductees to the PGA Hall of Fame. Palmer died four years ago, but would be 91 today.
Friday, Sept. 11: Emotions and ideas do not align easily today. Imagination may confuse and clear thinking is challenged. But a big goal is visible, so don’t give up. It was a clear, warm morning on Sept 11, 2001 when two commercial jets crashed into the World Trade Centre, as another hit the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia and a fourth crashed in rural Pennsylvania. 9/11 is a day like no other, and changed the U.S. forever.
Saturday, Sept. 12: On May 15,, Jupiter turned retrograde in Capricorn. On Sept. 12, the gas giant turns direct, and will stay that way until well into June 2021, in the sign of Aquarius. It’s a nine-month period of positive energy from the planet the ancients called the God Planet. Make a list of things you want. In your life. In the world. Henry Hudson, the English explorer, was born on Sept. 12, 1575. He came first to a river now called The Hudson on the west side of what is now New York City, and later explored a vast gulf in the Arctic, now known as Hudson Bay. Of course, the oldest registered business in North America is Hudson’s Bay Company (1620). His blankets are pretty cool (i.e. warm) too.
Sunday, Sept. 13: Charm, and an old wound, get reintroduced to each other with good prospects for healing. Which is odd on a day where generosity is nowhere to be found. One of the great heroes of the War of 1812, Laura Secord, was born Sept. 13, 1775 in Great Barrington, MA. She travelled all night to warn the British of the impending attack of the Americans.
Monday, Sept. 14: The Sun in Virgo and Pluto in Capricorn are in perfect harmony all day today. Determination and willpower can accomplish a lot right now. Go for something you have always wanted. Suffragette Margaret Sanger, nurse, proponent of birth control, and advocate for the vote for women, was born Sept. 14, 1879 in Corning New York.
Tuesday, Sept. 15: There are many obstacles standing in the way of what you want to do today. At least one of them is really important. A creative stance and loving charm work wonders to open what appear to be locked doors. And on Sept. 15 1961, Dan Marino was born in Pittsburgh, PA. He went on to win nine pro bowls, and while he never won a Super Bowl, he is considered one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.
Wednesday, Sept. 16: The finicky Moon in Virgo works with generous Jupiter and futuristic Aquarius today, to make clear sense of things, and to bring dreams closer to home. On this day in 1989, at the 14th Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF), Michael Moore’s film Roger and Me won the People’s Choice Award.
