Horoscope: Diplomatic days are on the horizon

This week, Mercury moves from its home sign of Virgo into peaceful Libra on Monday the 30th. That’s also the day of the third-quarter moon in Gemini.

Thursday, Aug. 26: With the moon in confident Aries, both Venus and Mercury play key roles today. Clever Mercury in Virgo gets a boost from our deepest spirits, while Venus in Libra works to overcome opposition from the past. On Aug. 26, 1971, Bobby Orr signed the first million-dollar contract in the history of the NHL – $1 million over five years.

Friday, Aug. 27: The moon moves into steadfast Taurus early today. Big news again from Mercury, this time getting a bump from expansive, all-knowing Jupiter. New ideas put smiles on faces and warm hearts too. Disney’s "Mary Poppins," starring Julie Andrews and Dick van Dyke, opened Aug. 27, 1964, in L.A. As Mary would say: “Chim, chim cheree.”

Saturday, Aug. 28: Surprise! Both the moon and Venus make connections with forward-moving Uranus. The moon being in the same place in the sky brings a comforting surprise. With Venus there is stress, likely involving money. On Aug. 28, 1965, in Timmins, Ont., five-time Grammy Award winner Eileen Edwards, aka Shania Twain, was born.

Sunday, Aug. 29: While the moon moves from Taurus into lively Gemini in the noon hour, paradoxically, the busiest part of the day is in the morning. The afternoon is pleasant, in a laid-back way. Today is birthday number 62 for Canadian crooning astronaut Chris Hadfield. The first Canadian to walk in space, he is also famous for his rendition of David Bowie’s "Space Oddity" in 2015.

Monday, Aug. 30: Today, Mercury leaves Virgo and enters Libra. During this transit, we’re more diplomatic and we find it easier to see other people’s points of view. With Mercury in Libra, we are more likely to talk things through, get things straight and find a “win-win” solution. When we have clarity around where we’re coming from, as well as where other people are coming from, we find that middle ground, that perfect balance between give and take, and this is when magic can happen. Today is also challenging, thanks to the third-quarter moon in Gemini. Mary Shelley, author of "Frankenstein," was born Aug. 30, 1797.

Tuesday, Aug. 31: A mixed bag of celestial activity is mildly stressful, mildly generous and mildly more charming. Maria Montessori, founder of the Montessori method of education, was born in Italy on Aug. 31, 1870.

Wednesday, Sept. 1: The moon moves into her home sign of Cancer early in the day and is 90 degrees from Mercury in Libra later on. This is likely to leave us with very sensitive feelings and frustrated by thinking when we can’t seem to make up our mind. In what today would surely be a scandal, future Prime Minister John A. Macdonald, married his cousin, Isabella Clark on Sept. 1, 1843.

Next week, we see a new moon in discriminating Virgo.
