Now, the week ahead:
Thursday, Feb. 4: The third-quarter Moon in Scorpio occurs at 12:36 p.m. With the futuristic Sun in Aquarius cornered by secretive, sexy emotions, it’s a day when we want to hold on to our beliefs, our memories, and our imaginations to help us get through it. Mark Zuckerberg, sitting in his dormitory room at Harvard University, launched Facebook on Feb. 4, 2004.
Friday, Feb. 5: An overactive mind may cause a bit of a sleepless night, but as the Moon moves into all-seeing Sagittarius in the noon hour, things begin to brighten. By later this evening, sure-footed gains make life more secure. Today would have been the 87th birthday of Henry (Hank) Aaron, who had huge wrists which helped him hold the home run record for all of the Major Baseball League, playing for the Atlanta Braves and Milwaukee Brewers for 33 years. Henry, as he preferred to be called, died Jan. 22, just a couple of weeks ago.
Saturday, Feb. 6: A couple of heavy connections in the sky make this a Saturday to remember. First, we see Venus and Saturn together, meaning progress is possible but only with honesty and charm. Then, late this evening, Venus connects with Uranus. With a little luck, it brings a charming and forward-looking surprise. Queen Elizabeth II ascended the throne of Great Britain on Feb. 6, 1952.
Sunday, Feb. 7: Mercury and the Moon are friendly today, making thoughts and feelings work together. Mind you, Mercury is retrograde, so the thoughts may have more to do with memories, rather than new ideas. Basketball’s Most Valuable Player in 2005 and 2006, Canada’s Steve Nash, was born Feb. 7, 1974.
Monday Feb. 8: The Sun and Mercury are conjunct at 8:47 a.m., with Mercury in retrograde motion. It’s a time when rethinking something personal can prove to be very rewarding. It was Feb. 8, 1894, that Billy Bishop was born in Owen Sound. He went on to be a decorated pilot in the First World War, and today the Toronto Island airport is named Billy Bishop Airport, with daily flights to and from Niagara on-the-Lake.
Tuesday Feb. 9: The Moon and Pluto are in the same place in Capricorn today. Things get serious and emotions are driven by deep and powerful feelings. Go mild or go wild. John, Paul, George and Ringo made their first appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show on Feb. 9, 1964.
Wednesday, Feb. 10: Tomorrow is the new Moon in Aquarius. Today is busy, busy, busy, as if we need to finish all sorts of things before tomorrow’s fresh start. Mostly the universe is helping, so get ‘er done! On Feb. 10, 1942, Tex Beneke, a drummer with the Glen Miller Orchestra, was awarded the first ever Gold Record for the song Chattanooga Choo Choo.
And that’s AonA for this week. Next time it’s a new Moon in Aquarius and more.
Until then, remember to shine on!
