MAY 24 to JUNE 3, 2012
THURSDAY May 24th 2012
On Thursday mental clarity shines bright and clear once again when Mercury leaves plodding Taurus and sweeps into Gemini — Mercury's astrological home sign. This shift dramatically improves communications for the next three weeks. And since Mercury also watches over commerce, the coming three weeks will also be an ideal time for financial and career decisions.
FRIDAY May 25th 2012
On Friday you should be especially wary of promises which sound too good to be true when Mercury squares off against nebulous Neptune. Remember the Mercury is not only god of merchants but also the god of thieves. Neptune makes the most outrageous exaggerations sound plausible. Otherwise, this is a fortuitous day because ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in a luck-promoting sextile to Jupiter. Just be sure to place your trust in people and things you can trust.
SATURDAY May 26th 2012
On Saturday the weekend party atmosphere gets a boost when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in kissy aspects to Mercury, the Sun and impetuous Uranus. Whether it's shopping, gardening, traveling or entertaining — this should be a nice weekend for it.
SUNDAY May 27th 2012
On Sunday Mercury aligns in conjunction with the Sun. Old astrology texts dating back to Ancient Rome call this a potentially hazardous time, and speak of a "Scorched Mercury" which impairs communications and judgment. But in ANTINOUS MOON MAGIC, we see that very differently. This Sun/Mercury conjunction is indeed intense, but in a positive way. Antinous/Mercury focuses the gay spiritual light of his heavenly father Ra-Herakhte right at you. Open your spiritual heart to the light and joy and permit it to burn away all doubt and all fear and trepidation. Most people live in spiritual darkness. They are like people who live in caves and are afraid of sunlight because it hurts their eyes. But should we shun the light and stay in the cave with them? Antinous/Mercury says it's safe to open your spiritual eyes — and spiritual heart — and become accustomed to the light.
MONDAY May 28th 2012
On Monday it's time for something completely different when Gemini Mercury and the Gemini Sun both form surprise-filled sextiles to impulsive Uranus. You will want a change of scenery and a total change from your usual routine. Now is the time for a big change and you will be brimming with great ideas to implement change.
TUESDAY May 29th 2012
On Tuesday you will find practical ways for implementing those big changes that came to you in a flash of Uranian inspiration on Monday. On Tuesday ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns in conjunction with Mars and forms a square to Retrograde Venus. That means decisions will be made on the practical basis of good common sense.
WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY May 30th/31st 2012
Overnight Wednesday and Thursday Gemini Mercury moves into a 90-degree right angle aspect to no-nonsense Virgo Mars. This square aspect dominates both days and, indeed, tinges the whole week to come. Many astrologers say that this aspect is when people sharpen their swords. But in my experience in casting gay horoscopes, I find that a Mercury/Mars square involving chatty Gemini and overly critical Virgo indicates that people will be sharpening their tongues to use as weapons! Remember that lovely line from "The Importance of Being Earnest" by Oscar Wilde (who is a Saint of Antinous, by the way): "On an occasion of this kind it becomes more than a moral duty to speak one's mind. It becomes a pleasure." This is an aspect which encourages people to say vicious and intentionally hurtful things. People are overly persnickety and bitchy and downright mean. You'll be amazed how true this is. And if you want to remain above the fray, just remember when something cruel is on the tip of your tongue to bite your tongue. That's because Gemini will move into a kissy aspect with Venus on Friday and you don't want to say something on Thursday that you'll regret this coming weekend ....
FRIDAY JUNE 1st 2012
On Friday you'll be glad you bit your vicious tongue Thursday, and refrained from uttering dissy remarks, because Mercury aligns in conjunction with love planet Venus on Friday in time for the weekend. Gemini Mercury is very chatty and Gemini Venus is in the mood for a party. And because Venus is Retrograde (going "backwards" as seen from the Earth), don't be surprised if you look across a crowded dance floor and see someone from your past, an old flame you lost touch with, someone you always wanted to see again so you could tell him how much he meant to you back then. Tonight's the night for a potentially hot reunion.
SATURDAY JUNE 2nd 2012
On Saturday the passion that was kindled on Friday flares into something really hot when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms sexy sextiles to horny Mars and determined Pluto. Whether you go shopping or out to the clubs -- you'll definitely find what you are looking for.
SUNDAY JUNE 3rd 2012
On Sunday your appetites for food, sex and every other appetite go right off the scale when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in opposition to exaggeration-prone Jupiter and square to Neptune, planet of addictions. You may find yourself going overboard. Be careful with alcohol and other substances of choice.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
An exciting week lies ahead between June 4th and 10th, when a Lunar Eclipse during the SAGITTARIUS FULL MOON on Monday ushers in a series of dramatic astrological alignments including the VENUS OCCULTATION. That's when Venus passes directly across the orb of the Sun -- which occurs only every 121 years. More details next time ....
