MAY 17th to 27th, 2012
THURSDAY May 17th 2012
On Thursday you'll want to roll up your sleeves and tackle noisome chores that you have been putting off when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms a productive sextile to Retrograde Venus and is in opposition to Saturn. Retrograde Venus is stressing the need to go back and "re-view," "re-do" and "re-work" things while Saturn makes it imperative that you stop procrastinating and get to work now.
FRIDAY May 18th 2012
On Friday the work week ends on a dreamy note when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in a sextile to nebulous Neptune. You tend to get lost in daydreams and find it hard to focus on work. Be especially careful in drive-time Friday afternoon traffic — even if you manage to keep your eyes on the road, lots of other motorists will be daydreaming at the wheel.
SATURDAY May 19th 2012
On Saturday an energy-filled weekend gets underway when the waning Taurus Moon forms happy trines with Pluto and Mars. This is a good day for pampering yourself and splurging on yourself and doing things to make your home more beautiful.
SUNDAY May 20th 2012
Sunday is a powerfully magical day which ushers in a powerfully magical week. The big celestial show gets off to a bang when the Sun and Moon enter Gemini and align for the GEMINI NEW MOON. Meanwhile, Mercury and Jupiter are also in perfect alignment. This power lineup will affect Gemini-related communications issues for weeks to come. But that's not all! This New Moon is the first SOLAR ECLIPSE in the 21st Century to be visible over the continental United States at an hour when millions of people will be watching. This SOLAR ECLIPSE will be exact at 4:47 p.m. Pacific Time, and will be visible over the western half of the US as well as the Pacific, Japan and the eastern coast of China. It is an "Annular Eclipse," meaning the Moon creates a black disk which fits inside the orb of the sun, making the Sun appear to be a ring of fire in the sky. An Eclipse in an air sign like Gemini is believed to coincided with storms, wildfires and tornados. And because this Gemini alignment is within a few degrees of President Obama's Natal Moon, you can expect some sort of revelation concerning a certain dark secret to be made during this SOLAR ECLIPSE, and this revelation will send shock waves through the rest of the US presidential election campaign this summer and autumn.
MONDAY May 21st 2012
On Monday the powerful reverberations of the SOLAR ECLIPSE continue full force even after the fast-moving Gemini Moon glides onward to new aspects. ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD creates squares to Neptune and Mars and a surprise-filled sextile with Uranus. Ideas will come to you from out of no where and you will be surprised at how intuitive you can be.
TUESDAY May 22nd 2012
On Tuesday you might want to take a chance on the lottery when Mercury aligns with lucky Jupiter even as ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns with Venus in money-minded Gemini. In matters of money — and love — this promises to be a lucky day.
WEDNESDAY May 23rd 2012
On Wednesday you can expect misunderstandings of all sorts when the Sun is at right angles to Neptune, something which happens twice a year. It is as if someone has placed a diffuse filter over a camera lens so that images are all in soft-focus. It is like a fog bank on an otherwise sunny day which prevents you from seeing clearly where you are going. You will find yourself speaking in what you feel are the most certain terms — only to find that others totally misunderstand and misinterpret you. Likewise, you think others are saying one thing when they insist they mean something ese entirely. But there is a positive side to Sun-square-Neptune — this is one of the best days of the year for intense meditation and astral travel.
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 the 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 know 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.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
An exciting week lies ahead between May 28th and June 3rd, when Mercury squares off against Mars before aligning in conjunction with love planet Venus. That means this week will be a bit like those romantic comedies about two people who are total opposites and who fight constantly — before finally falling in love. More details next time ....
