Now, the week ahead:
Thursday, Dec. 10: Venus and Pluto have not a lot in common, save that they are both planets. Venus is love. Pluto is unseen motivation and is dark and powerful. Today Venus gives Pluto a helping hand. Depending on where Pluto is in your chart, this could be a winning lottery ticket or more love in your life. Or…. get your chart at my website. There’s a ton of activity in the sky today, so get ready for a very busy Thursday. It was Dec. 10, 1884 that Mark Twain’s Huckleberry Finn was published in Canada and Great Britain. Due to a printing error, the Americans had to wait until February, 1885.
Friday, Dec. 11: Tons of energy to start the day and a surprise later on may bring better health and more wealth coming our way. It was Dec. 11, 1936 that King Edward VIII announced he would abdicate the throne and marry American Wallis Simpson. They eventually ended up in the Bahamas with Sir Harry Oakes, who had moved there from Niagara Falls.
Saturday, Dec. 12: Both Venus and the Moon move from sexy Scorpio into all-knowing Sagittarius this morning, setting up a joyful and charming Saturday where smiles and helping hands are everywhere. One famous and musical Frank was born on Dec. 12, Frank Sinatra in 1915.
Sunday, Dec. 13: Two planets that deal with our mental state are square to one another today. Mercury in Sagittarius is Square to Neptune in Pisces. Mercury rules our logical, thinking mind. Neptune rules our imagination and memory. Today, Neptune is the stronger of the two, so plan on creative ideas and not on balancing your chequing account. The Sound of Music’s Christopher Plummer took his first breath in Toronto on Dec. 13, 1929.
Monday, Dec. 14: Today is the day of the New Moon. Also, the day of the last solar eclipse for 2020. It happens at 11:16 a.m. EST but will be visible only in South America as it happens when the Moon is at its lowest point in her orbit. Still, it is the start of a new month and an opportunity to refresh projects that may have not gone so well while Mars and Neptune were in retrograde motion. Perseverance matters now, more than ever. Today is the birthday of two of the most famous astrologers and astronomers in history. Nostradamus was born Dec. 14, 1503. And Tycho Brahe was born in part of Denmark that is now Sweden in 1546. Brahe discovered the formula for calculating the elliptical orbit of Mars, a feat that had eluded scientists for thousands of years.
Tuesday, Dec. 15: Venus winds up her long stay in Scorpio today by moving into Sagittarius just before Noon. It’s a shift from sexy to smart. (Hey, smart can be sexy too). It’s a good day to build more security. Gone with the Wind premiered on Dec. 15 1939. Starring Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable, it won the Oscar for Best Picture in 1940.
Wednesday, Dec. 16: It doesn’t get much more serious than this. The Moon is in Capricorn. Conjunct Pluto. Square to Mars. Be honest and tell yourself to not let anyone try to pull the wool over your eyes. The man who imagined 2001: A Space Odyssey and so many more compelling sci-fi stories, Arthur C. Clark, was born Dec. 16, 1917.
And that’s AonA for this week.
Until next week, as Joni Mitchell says, shine on!
