Horoscopes: Good time to adopt a healthier lifestyle

This week the third quarter moon is in Taurus on Saturday. And more.

Thursday, July 29: It’s a good day to take on a new healthier lifestyle as Jupiter bumps Mars, bringing good energy to health and work matters. With the moon in Aries there is courage in the air, so go for it. It was July 29, 1609, that Samuel de Champlain shot and killed two Iroquois chiefs at Ticonderoga, N.Y., thereby setting off 200 years of animosity.

Friday, July 30: In spite of some feelings of insecurity, there is a lot of love out there. Connect with the love and dispel the insecurity. Today Lisa Kudrow, Phoebe Buffay on “Friends,” turns 58.

Saturday, July 31: It’s the day of the third quarter moon in Taurus for 2021. Quarter moons are often tense, this one especially so due to a conjunction with Uranus and a square with Saturn. In addition to the pressure of completing chores of importance, a surprise may waylay our planned day and so feelings of inadequacy are best set aside for now. On July 31, 1917, the Battle of Passchendaele resulted in 500,000 dead, many of them Canadian. In 2008, a Canadian film was released about the First World War and the battle. It starred Paul Gross and a regular Shaw performer of the day, Jim Mezon.

Sunday, Aug. 1: While serious and clever behaviour can help to heal an old wound, thinking from an insecure place is a recipe for failure. On Aug. 1, 1774,  English chemist Joseph Priestly discovered oxygen. Of course, it was always there, but Priestly was the first to separate it from air. (Air is about 21 per cent oxygen and 78 per cent nitrogen).

Monday, Aug. 2: Do you remember when I spoke of Chiron turning retrograde a few weeks ago? At that time, I mentioned us “becoming our own medicine.” Today proves a fine example of how dedicated thinking will prove that to be true. Scottish-born, a Canadian citizen and an American hero, Alexander Graham Bell died on Aug. 2, 1922, at 75 years of age.

Tuesday, Aug. 3: A surprise makes for feelings of pride. And earthy passions get happy, also in a surprising manner. Happy birthday to the NBA. It was Aug. 3, 1949, that the Basketball Association of America (BAA) and National Basketball League (NBL) merged to form the National Basketball Association (NBA).

Wednesday, Aug. 4: The moon moves from Gemini into her home sign of Cancer tonight. It‘s another day of healing as Chiron and the sun connect. Aug. 4 is and was a big day for pop music. Elvis Presley’s recording of “Hound Dog” reached #1 on Aug. 4, 1956. Billboard published its Hot 100 for the first time on Aug. 4, 1958. At #1 was Ricky Nelson’s “Poor Little Fool.”

Next week we see the new moon in Leo.
