Today, the Sun is conjunct Pluto. This is the time to surrender our Ego to whatever the deeper Pluto truth requires from us. We not only have this, but also Mercury and Venus all conjunct Pluto from December to early March. There’s a lot of Pluto energy, inviting us to transform at a core level. If you’re still unsure about what all these Venus and Mercury Pluto transformations exactly require from you, pay attention to anything around January 16th. As soon as we surrender to whatever this truth is, the exact thing we’ve been terrified of becomes our greatest ally. It was Jan. 16, 1919 that Prohibition became the law in America.

Today, we see a Full Moon in Cancer. The Full Moon is opposite Pluto, reinforcing the transformation and renewal themes of this month. If you’ve been feeling the Pluto pressure, but also stuck with no clear options on what’s the next step, the Full Moon in Cancer will give that outside perspective. Things will suddenly become clear, and we will know exactly what we need to do. On Jan. 17, 1922 Betty White was born in Oak Park Illinois. Her passing a few weeks ago was cause for great celebration and love.

Today, Uranus goes direct, so we will have an intensification of Uranian energy. Some sudden changes, announcements, revelations can turn our lives upside down. Since the North Node is now in Taurus activating Uranus for the entire year, we’d better get used to Uranus’ liberating energy. Some Uranian-driven changes may come at a shock, but if we’re really honest to ourselves we know that these changes only happen to get us unstuck from situations. It was Jan. 18, 1980 that Pink Floyd’s album, ‘The Wall’ reached number one.

Today the Sun enters Aquarius. 2021 was an intense year for man. Your rulers, Saturn and Uranus have just come out of their third (and final square) so relief will come soon! She is best known as a singer. She’s also a successful actor. And she now is a major philanthropist, giving millions of books to needy children through her ‘Imagination Library’. She is Dolly Parton and she turns 76 today.

Just before the moon leaves Leo and enters Virgo it sets up a perfect harmony with Mars, creating some generous energy that makes love blossom. On Jan. 20, 1980, U.S. President Jimmy Carter announced the American boycott of the summer Olympic games in Moscow. Several countries followed suit, prompted by Russian actions in Afghanistan.
Friday, Jan. 21
Retrograde Mercury in Aquarius is forty-five degrees from Neptune in Pisces, creating a conflict of ideas that is confusing especially as regards spiritual matters and long-term plans. It was fourteen years ago today, on Jan. 21, 2008 that stock markets everywhere crashed at the beginning of the worst recession since 1929.
Saturday, Jan. 22
Late this evening the moon in Libra is in perfect harmony with the Sun in Aquarius. Hopefully, that will be kind to help heal the stresses of earlier in the day. It was Jan. 22, 1973 that the U.S. Supreme Court, in a decision known as “Roe vs. Wade” legalized most abortions in all fifty states.
About Bill Auchterlonie
Art, astrology and air. I have a degree in Fine Arts – in Film Studies from York University. I have worked or volunteered in Art Galleries including the Art Gallery of Ontario (Curator of Exhibitions) and Rodman Hall (Board Member). I ran my own commercial Gallery in Niagara-on-the-Lake. I was a key part of the team responsible for the monument to Nikola Tesla at Table Rock, Niagara Falls. Currently I am a contributor to the magazine Arabella, for the love of all things art. And air as in broadcasting. I have been ‘on air’ at CKMW, CJRN, CKTB, CHAM and CFRB.
My interest in astrology began when I was in university, studying ancient religious sites like Stonehenge, the Pyramids in Egypt and North and Central American earthworks which were all astronomically inspired. Then I hosted a talk show with a regular guest, Allen Spraggett. Allen is a former Methodist Minister and Religion Editor of the Toronto Star. His books on the paranormal are widely known. He is also a student of astrology and explained that my surviving a hit and run accident in 1980 was related to my nearly drowning at age four. I had no memory of that event. He said, “Ask your mom.” When she confirmed this fact, I was hooked.
To me, it’s like a language with archetypical imagery that matches psychology and coincidence. I have been studying for decades. My intention and wish is to help improve people's understanding of their strengths and issues while also giving insight into opportunities for success.
