The Moon will transition between the two star signs in the second half of the day, marking a shift in energies. In astrology, Leo is the fifth star sign of the zodiac and holds a position in the house of fire elements. Leo is often considered a brash but courageous zodiac energy with a strong drive for creativity and passion. But all of this might change when the Moon enters Virgo – the sixth sign of the zodiac.

Virgo is said to be loyal, analytical, hardworking and kind.

People born under this sign are said to be obsessed with healthy food, animals and duty but suffer from shyness and worry at times.

Today, both energies will manifest themselves in the Moon’s transiting aspect.

Astrologer Marina, of MarStar Astrology Insights, explained: “Today the transit Moon is in Leo during the first half of the day.

“It’s a great time for having fun, for doing the things that you love, for feeling more passionate about life, or certain activities or initiating things, being more in the centre of attention of other people and just enjoying life.

“Around noon the Moon will enter Virgo and will stay there until the end of the day.

“This is a very positive position for focusing more on our responsibilities.

“We had some celebrations and we had some parties during the past few days – maybe we have neglected some of our responsibilities or tasks or work – now with the Moon in Virgo we may find more time to take care of the things that need to be improved or to be resolved in some way.”

The astrologer added the Moon in Virgo will help you focus on and pay attention to all of the little details.

Virgo is known for being focused, concrete and sometimes over-critical and more judgemental than usual.

Marina said: “But that’s only because we are capable of seeing things – the things that need to be improved basically.

“Also it’s very positive that while the Moon is in Virgo it will make a trine with the Sun in Capricorn.

“So basically, we have the most important planets – the Sun and the Moon – both in earth signs and connected with positive aspects.”

Astrologers define a trine aspect as a 120-degree separation between two celestial bodies on the zodiac charts.

Today’s trine will boost your spirits and take on Boxing Day (December 26) with a more cheerful attitude.

Marina said the trine’s earth-bound energies are also good for focusing on your promises and tasks without too much stress.

When Ontario declared a COVID-19 health emergency last spring, the first instinct of Ottawa entrepreneur Peter O’Blenis was to preserve cash.

“We basically stopped our discretionary spending,” said O’Blenis, the co-founder and CEO of Evidence Partners, which makes software for accelerating the review of scientific and medical literature, using artificial intelligence. “We cut investments in things meant to help us grow.”

It was a defensive posture born of experience. O’Blenis had 12 years earlier nearly been crushed by the global financial crisis. Another looked to be on the way.

In 2008, O’Blenis and his colleagues, Jonathan Barker and Ian Stefanison, hit a brick wall with their first venture, TrialStat, which helped hospitals manage patients’ electronic data. While TrialStat had secured $5.5 million in venture financing just a couple of years earlier, the founders had burned through most of it during a rapid expansion. When the financial world collapsed, so did their firm.

The trio played things far more conservatively with Evidence Partners, which has relied almost exclusively on customer revenues to finance expansion.

The caution proved unnecessary. Like so many other businesses, O’Blenis underestimated the government’s willingness to keep the economy afloat with easy money. Nor did he anticipate that COVID-19 would prove a significant catalyst for the firm’s revenues so soon.

Evidence Partners is hardly the only local firm with technology particularly suited for the war against COVID-19. Spartan Bioscience and DNA Genotek adapted existing products to create technology for identifying the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19. Ottawa-based units of Abbott Laboratories and Siemens Healthineers make portable blood analyzers that diagnose patients afflicted by the virus.

Shepherds of Good Hope wants to expand ByWard Market operation with eight-storey housing complex

The Shepherds of Good Hope plans to build an eight-storey building near its current shelter for the homeless in the ByWard Market that would include supportive housing for up to 48 people, a soup kitchen and a drop-in centre.

The organization says it wants to be part of the solution to the housing crisis that has fuelled a rise in homelessness in Ottawa.

People would be moved out of the emergency shelters and into their own tiny apartments in the complex, which would include a communal dining hall and staff available to help with mental health, addiction and medical problems, said Caroline Cox, senior manager of communications for the Shepherds.

Some residents in the neighbourhood are opposed, saying services for the homeless and vulnerable should not be concentrated in one area of the city.

“I was flabbergasted,” said homeowner Brian Nolan, who lives one block from the development proposed for 216 Murray St., where currently a one-story building houses offices for the Shepherds of Good Hope.

Nolan said that, in the 15 years he’s lived in the area, it has become increasingly unsafe, with home and car thefts, drug dealing, loitering, aggressive and erratic behaviour, urinating, defecating and vomiting on sidewalks and yards and sexual acts conducted in public on his dead-end street. Before he lets his son play basketball in the yard, he checks the ground for needles and his home security camera to see who is nearby.

Kern is the author of two books on gender and cities, including Feminist City: Claiming Space in a Man-Made World (Verso). The book discusses how our cities have failed in terms of fear, motherhood, friendship, activism, the joy and perils of being alone, and also imagines what they could become.

Kern argues, “The pandemic has shown us that society can be radically reorganized if necessary. Let’s carry that lesson into creating the non-sexist city.”
