Looking to the Stars: Time for a new, improved and healthier you

This week, Venus enters Sagittarius, Mercury and Mars connect in Libra and retrograde Saturn turns direct.

Thursday, Oct. 7: Venus is hurtling through space and today moves from sexy Scorpio intro all-knowing Sagittarius. Relationships change a little from quietly introverted into fiery and confident. The symbol for Sagittarius is the mythical half-horse, half-human with a bow and arrow aiming for a target over the horizon, an unseen target. And miraculously hitting it. Now, romantic energy and relationships in general, shift from intense to buoyant. It was Oct. 7, 1971, that John Lennon released his most successful solo single, "Imagine."

Friday, Oct. 8: Once a year, on average, the sun meets Mars at the same place. It happens today at 15 degrees of Libra. The Sabian symbol for 15 degrees of Libra is “After a storm, a boat stands in need of reconstruction.” So, the storm is the pandemic and the boat is our shared reality? It is in Libra, so the law is involved somehow. Perhaps the federal election will prompt a change? And it was on this day in 1846 that future Canadian Prime Minister Charles Tupper (25) wed Frances Amelia Morse (20) in Amherst, N.S.

Saturday, Oct. 9: Mercury retrograde connects in the sky, first with the sun and then with Mars. It’s a day for thinking about a new you, especially a new healthier you or a new and better work goal for you. John Lennon would be 81 years old today, born Oct. 9, 1940 in Liverpool.

Sunday, Oct. 10: Having been retrograde since May 23, today Saturn turns direct. After nearly four months of inward anxiety regarding security, it’s time to begin to act to make things more secure. It’s time to fully digest all that worry and take charge like a boss. Happy birthday #67 to David Lee Roth, whose hit single "Jump" put Van Halen at #1 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Monday, Oct. 11: A quiet day as the moon moves from Sagittarius to Capricorn. An idea in a dream in the middle of the night is worth its weight in joy. Happy anniversary #46 to "Saturday Night Live," which launched on this day in 1975 with George Carlin as host and Canadian Lorne Michaels in charge.

Tuesday, Oct. 12: A serious Tuesday where an unexpected turn makes life more stable and longer lasting. On Oct. 12, 1915, heroic English nurse Edith Cavell died by firing squad for helping wounded Allied soldiers out of France during the First World War. A school in St. Catharines was built in her honour in 1919.

Wednesday, Oct. 13: Speedy Venus, zipping through Sagittarius, gets a friendly bump from Saturn today. Both finances and relationships improve. It was Oct. 13, 2015, that Bob Dylan was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. He picked it up, in Stockholm, six months later.
