ANTINOUS GUIDES US THROUGH AN OMINOUS
OUTER PLANETARY CONFIGURATION
AN OMINOUS outer-planetary configuration became exact on Sunday 24th June 2012 which has the potential of transforming our lives, either for the worse or — with the spiritual aid of Antinous — for the better.
Uranus in Aries square Pluto in Capricorn.
Ominous, because Uranus, the planet of idealistic revolution is in the war-like sign of Aries, which comes into a tense relationship with Pluto, the (dwarf) planet associated with extreme powers and control in the sign of Capricorn, a sign associated with structures and establishments such as governments and corporations.
The last time Uranus entered Aries in the late 1920s coincided with the onset of the Great Depression and the rise of Fascism.
The last time Pluto entered Capricorn coincided with the French Revolution and the American Revolution in the late 18th Century.
The chaos on financial markets over the past two years (when Pluto entered Capricorn) and the uprisings throughout the Islamic world over the past 18 months (when Uranus entered Aries) will escalate as both of these planets form a square-angle to each other.
Because both Uranus and Pluto are so slow-moving, this 90-degree right angle will be in effect through September. Indeed, it will perfectly exact seven times starting from June 24th 2012 to March 16th 2015.
Astrologers have been buzzing about the Uranus/Pluto Square for years. Capricorn Pluto is determined to tear down all political and financial structures and rebuild them in a new and different way. Aries Uranus is only interested in revolution and change for the sake of change.
In ANTINOUS MOON MAGIC we study such challenging astrological configurations to see how they can be used to work for us. It is good to remember that Emperor Hadrian was a skilled astrologer who did not hide under the bed when the planets indicated hardship ahead.
Instead, Hadrian viewed astrological warnings as just that — warnings of what lies ahead. Just like signs on a winding road warning of hazards ahead. You adjust for the conditions and proceed with preparedness and vigilance.
The Pluto-square-Uranus configuration means that many time-honored structures will come tumbling down, oftentimes violently torn down in anger. People who stubbornly cling to wealth and power will lose all. But those who are agile, like a cat, will land on their feet. Remember which survives a hurricane best — the mighty oak tree — or flexible bamboo.
On the personal level, this can mean that old structures which have been stifling you — such as a job situation with a tyrannical boss, an unreasonable landlord, or a family patriarch who keeps you under his thumb — these structures are overdue for replacement by structures more suited to your current and future needs.
The emphasis will be on tearing down prison walls, removing the shackles that bind you and liberating yourself from worn-out job/monetary/personal commitment infrastructures which no longer serve any useful purpose.
The transition will be dramatic, awesome and perhaps frightening. But the cosmos will not throw anything your way which you cannot handle spiritually. And we promise to provide every insight possible to enable you — through the process of HOMOTHEOSIS — to prevail, with the love of ANTINOUS THE GAY GOD.
