Looking to the Stars: New ideas can bring good fortune

Bill Auchterlonie
Special to The Lake Report

This week we see Venus in difficulty, a full moon on Monday and the start of Libra on Tuesday.

Thursday, Sept. 16: In olden times, Jupiter was the god of all things good. Today, in astrology, he is the bearer of good fortune. On this Thursday (today) Jupiter is in Aquarius perfectly aligned with the sun in Virgo to make for stress. But this stress brings a gift that opens doors to better health. Henry Fonda was once married to a Canadian. Her name was Frances Ford Seymour. They had two children, Jane and Peter. While their marriage was difficult, it began with a wedding on Sept. 16, 1936.

Friday, Sept. 17: From today until Sept. 23, Venus gets entangled with Saturn and Uranus. This is a deja vu of the fixed T-square we had in July when Venus was in Leo. If back in July, Venus in Leo’s dramatic displays of emotions aired out the tension, Venus in Scorpio will deal with it (the tension) all by herself. Sometimes we need an implosion-like intensity to gain clarity on what really matters. On Sept. 17, 1937, famous Canadian economist John Kenneth Galbraith married Catherine Atwater. He went on to write several bestsellers on – economics and served in John F. Kennedy’s cabinet.

Saturday, Sept. 18: Sweet dreams can be somewhat disturbing, but by paying attention, new ideas bring good fortune. Happy birthday #45 to one of soccer’s all-time great players, the Brazilian phenom Ronaldo Luís Nazário de Lima, who like his Portuguese counterpart today was known simply as Ronaldo.

Sunday, Sept. 19: With the moon in Pisces on the day before the full moon, we enjoy deep feelings connecting to our creative and imaginative selves. It’s a fine day for making things. The "Raging Bull," middle-heavyweight boxer Jake LaMotta, the inspiration behind Martin Scorsese’s film died Sept. 19, 2017.

Monday, Sept. 20: Today, we have a full moon in Pisces conjunct with Neptune and opposite Mars. The full moon in Pisces will aim to reconcile the complementary energies of the two signs on the axis, i.e., the “floating in space,' otherworldliness of the moon/Neptune in Pisces, with the “let’s do it, let’s do it now, let’s get it done” sun/Mars in Virgo. Today, "The Flower," Guy Lafleur, turns 70. He scored 50 goals and 100 points in six consecutive seasons.

Tuesday, Sept. 21: Sometimes impulsive behaviour is surprising and fun. Not today. It’s a good day to stop and pause, then act. Were he still here, brilliant poet and musician, Leonard Cohen, would be 87 today. His recording career began with "Suzanne" and endured for 50+ years, including his beautiful anthem, "Hallelujah."

Wednesday, Sept. 22: Today the Sun enters Libra and we have the Autumn Equinox in the Northern Hemisphere and the Spring Equinox in the Southern Hemisphere. No matter where you live on Earth, the day is equal to the night. Equality is a key Libra word. We can find equality, balance and peace (Libra’s highest goals) when we begin to love (not only to accept) personal differences. When we see others, not as a reflection of ourselves, but as individuals in their own right. In Libra, it will just come easier than usual to open up to other people, put the “we” before “me”, and reach Win-Win outcomes. New York Yankee great, Yogi Berra, passed to spirit on Sept. 22, 2015. He was famous for malapropisms like: “I didn’t really say everything I said.”

Next week, among other things, Mercury goes retrograde.
