Welcome to Auchterlonie on Astrology, a look at the week of Feb. 25, 2021 through March 3, including the full Moon on Saturday.
On my podcast you can also find out how to obtain your own personal birth chart including a forecast for the year ahead. The podcast is at www.auchterlonieonastrology.ca.
Now, the week ahead:
Thursday, Feb. 25: While Venus enters Pisces, setting up a few weeks of sweetness, today, the Moon in Leo opposes Mercury (again), creating an argument between heart and mind. This is our last chance to resolve some of these issues, so do the right thing. It was Feb. 25, 1964, that Muhammed Ali won his first boxing title. His opponent, Sonny Liston, failed to come out for the seventh round.
Friday, Feb. 26: The Moon moves into Virgo at 12 p.m. This makes for a day of unhappy feelings, including arguments with Mars in Taurus in the morning, and with arguments with Venus in Pisces in the afternoon. Be creative and be less picky. Today would be Antoine ‘Fats’ Domino’s 93rd birthday. He sold more records than Elvis, and was born Feb. 26, 1928.
Saturday, Feb. 27: The full Moon is in Virgo this morning, bringing stress, even when the Moon is in finicky Virgo. Fortunately, connections to other planets leave us with a day full of opportunities, if we can only open our hearts to new approaches. Jacques Plante, who played in net for the Montreal Canadiens for 10 years, winning six Stanley Cups, died Feb. 27, 1986. He was the first goalie to wear a face mask.
Sunday, Feb. 28: Here’s a sweet Sunday with the Moon moving into Libra at 2:16 p.m. It’s especially warm and fuzzy this morning. Eric Lindros turns 48 years old today. He was drafted by the Quebec Nordiques, but was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers. In 1997, he appeared to bite San Jose defenceman, Marty McSorley, but was cleared by the NHL.
Monday, March 1: It’s a day for big ideas and bigger plans. Make time and keep notes. Justin Bieber was born March 1, 1994, in London, Ont. He is the only recording artist to have seven songs from a debut album reach the Billboard Hot 100.
Tuesday, March 2: The Moon moves from peace-loving Libra into sexy Scorpio at 3:38 p.m. An insight into the true mission in this life is today’s gift to you. It was March 2, 1965, that ‘The Sound of Music’ starring Christopher Plummer and Julie Andrews, premiered in NYC.
Wednesday, March 3: Venus and Mars, Uranus and the Moon all have important roles to pay in a very busy day. Expect the unexpected. It was March 3, 1847, that Alexander Graham Bell was born in Scotland. He moved to Canada, where he invented the telephone. Then he moved to the U.S., where he patented his invention. The telephone was one of hundreds of ideas he patented.
Next week is the third quarter Moon in Sagittarius on Friday, March 5, so until then, shine on!
