Now, the week ahead:
Thursday, Dec. 24: It’s Christmas Eve with the Moon in homey Taurus most of the day. Despite a bit of stress in the morning, the rest of the day is sweet. Especially this evening. And it was 202 years ago today that Silent Night, composed by Franz Gruber, was first heard in Oberndorf, Austria.
Friday, Dec. 25: Merry Christmas! A surprise just past midnight may have many of us wide awake and smiling. And thinking what to do next. It’s a day where indulgence and imagination are hand in hand. In what would become the most horrific war ever, soldiers on both sides took the day off and exchanged gifts and played soccer. Times have changed a lot since Dec. 25, 1914.
Saturday, Dec. 26: The Moon moves from Gemini to Cancer this evening, and makes happy, positive, productive connections all along the way. He played in the NHL from 1947 to 1969 as a defenceman for the New York Rangers. Doug Harvey died on Dec. 26, 1989.
Sunday, Dec. 27: Despite Christmas being officially over, today offers one more surprise in a step towards long-cherished goals. When Canadians hear the name Eaton, we most often think of T. Eaton, founder of the Toronto-based department store. But there was another Eaton. Born in Nova Scotia on Dec. 27, 1883, Cyrus Eaton became one of the richest men in North America, thanks to his brilliance in the steel industry.
Monday, Dec. 28: A busy Monday may be a holiday for some. It promises the best of giving and big-heartedness, so please enjoy. And it was Dec. 28, 1944, that Maurice ‘The Rocket’ Richard became the first in NHL history to score eight points in one game.
Tuesday, Dec. 29: Today’s full Moon pits public persona against family matters with Sun in Capricorn, and the Moon in Cancer. It’s an opportunity to move into the spotlight while making smiles on other faces too. She started with Dick Van Dyke and moved to The Mary Tyler Moore Show because she was Mary Tyler Moore. Born Dec. 29, 1936.
Wednesday, Dec. 30: Heart is emotional. Mind is logical. Especially true today. Sorting out a way forward is not easy to do. And today is the day Vincent Massey, the 18th Governor General of Canada, and the first Canadian-born GG, died. He was 80 years old.
And that’s AonA for This week. Next week is New Year’s Eve, New Year’s Day and a whole new year.
Remember, we are stardust. So, shine on!
