Two things today. One, it’s the third quarter moon in Pisces – time to review things happening over the past three weeks and see what can be done to catch up or revise. And two, Mercury retrograde moves out of Gemini and back into Taurus – a good time to review ideas from earlier this month – or enjoy a change of direction when a ‘no’ is now a ‘go’. Novak Djokovic celebrates 35 years today. Without covid vaccines and without furthering his (so far) twelve tennis singles grand slam championships.

Help is on the way, especially on the work and health fronts. Happy Birthday to the Northwest Mounted Police, formed on May 23, 1873. It didn’t get the ‘Royal’ designation until 1904.

Mars Enters Aries, the sign of his domicile. If you’ve been feeling a bit sluggish in the last few weeks when Mars was in Pisces, this will now change. In Aries, Mars does what he knows best: he takes action. When Mars is in other signs, we always find reasons not to take action. Mars in Taurus? “It takes too long”. Mars in Gemini? “I can’t focus”. Mars in Cancer? “What if it hurts other people’s feelings?” Mars in Leo?” What if I make a fool of myself?”. Mars in Virgo? “What if it’s not perfect?”. When Mars is in Aries, no more excuses. The last time Mars was in Aries was July-December 2020. Back in 2020 Mars was retrograde, this time, Mars is almost at its highest speed, so it will get things done quickly. Nobel prizewinner, singer/songwriter Robert Zimmerman, aka Bob Dylan is now eighty-one.

This otta be interesting. The moon and Mars are both in ‘tell it like it is’ Aries. Mercury is in Taurus, retrograde and today connecting to secretive Pluto in serious Capricorn. That’s interesting. (Like a boxing match.) Wayne Campbell, aka Mike Myers turns 59 years old today. His credits include Saturday Night Live, Wayne’s World and Inglorious Basterds.

Saturn in Aquarius, Uranus in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn are all in play today, but the most powerful aspect is thanks to the moon conjunct Venus in Aries. The temptation to take a chance, when offered, will be irresistible and that should prove to be sweet! It was May 26, 1967 that the Beatles’ revolutionary ‘Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band’ was released. I was in Sam the Record Man’s flagship store on Yonge Street in Toronto and saw a gleeful Seiji Ozawa purchase his copy.

Guard against impulsive words and actions today. Pause before you hurt yourself or someone close to you. Maurice ‘the Rocket Richard, the great right winger for the Montreal Canadians, passed on May 27, 2000 at age 78.

Venus enters Taurus, her domicile sign. When Venus is in Taurus, we find it easier to connect and honour our feelings – without guilt or self-doubt. This is a great transit for everyone, so take advantage of the upcoming weeks, and make sure to “do” Venus things: self-care, eat nutritious food, indulge in sensual experiences. Another great thing about Venus’ ingress into Taurus is that we now have both Venus and Mars in the signs of their maximum strength, which is great news for relationships. May 28, 1936 was the day Alan Turing submitted his ‘On Computable Numbers’ outlining the theory for all modern computers and changing the course of history.

About Looking Up with 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.
To me, astrology is 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
