JULY 19th to 29th, 2012
THURSDAY JULY 19th 2012
On Thursday, the gentle and romantic CANCER NEW MOON soothes the tensions of recent days and weeks. And because the CANCER NEW MOON deals with maternal issues such as health, you can expect to hear news about health-care issues. In ANTINOUS MOON MAGIC we call this the ADONIS MOON. Each lunar phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the Adonis Moon is the Perfect Gay Lover. This is the Spirit which dwells in each gay heart. It is the ultimate friend, partner, soul mate and lover. This Spirit embodies the perfection of a gay relationship, the perfect friend, the perfect companion. This Spirit defies all conventions and may not conform to societal formats for partnership, but it nonetheless constitutes the perfect partner. This is the most propitious day of the year for gay unions and relationship commitments.
FRIDAY JULY 20th 2012
On Friday, this turbulent work week ends on an optimistic note when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns with Mercury and forms a sexy sextile to Venus. The stage is set for a lovely Friday night date night.
SATURDAY JULY 21st 2012
On Saturday, the weekend gets off to a lazy start when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD goes VOID OF COURSE for 12 hours, meaning that you can forget about appointments and chores. Things won't come off the way you had planned. But a nice Moon-Saturn sextile means necessary work will be taken care off, at any rate.
SUNDAY JULY 22nd 2012
By the time you awake on Sunday, the Sun will have exited pouty Cancer and have bounded into outgoing Leo, where the Sun feels perfectly at home. The sign change occurs about dawn, New York time — brunch time in the UK and Europe. The focus during the succeeding four weeks will be on taking your place on center stage with creativity and style. Forget stage fright, and just let the Leo Sun shine its spotlight on you while everybody applauds.
MONDAY JULY 23rd 2012
On Monday, the atmosphere is cool and reserved at home and at work, even downright chilly. That's because ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is at right angles to Venus, creating an emotional block in interpersonal relations. Making things worse, ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is Void of Course for nearly 24 hours on Monday — all day and all night long in Europe, and during 9-to-5 office hours in the Americas. ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is figuratively hovering "between" astrological signs. The rule of thumb for a VOC Moon is that "nothing will come of it" in regard to any new project you start. Nothing bad will happen. But nothing good either. So just sit back and relax.
TUESDAY JULY 24th 2012
On Tuesday, you have the feeling you can do anything and achieve anything when Jupiter and Mercury are in an upbeat sextile. Ordinarily, Retrograde Mercury is a time to be cautious. But this good aspect to jovial Jupiter creates a magical day when past, present and future combine their energies for your benefit.
WEDNESDAY JULY 25th 2012
On Wednesday, you can expect surprise tidings from the past when Retrograde Mercury is in a very conducive karmic-healing trine to Retrograde Uranus. Mercury-trine-Uranus always creates optimal energies for breaking down encrusted old structures and for mentally visualizing bold new solutions. Because both of these major planets are Retrograde, the emphasis is on the past. Retrograde Uranus opens the portals of Time and Space and Retrograde Mercury enables you to go through those portals to engage in healing magic involving your own past, or past-life incarnations. Even if you do not work any magic, you can definitely count on receiving a message involving someone or something from the past.
THURSDAY JULY 26th 2012
On Thursday, your intuition gets a boost when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms positive aspects to dreamy Neptune and bold Pluto. But beware of interpersonal friction when the Moon briefly is at odds with the Sun and Mercury.
FRIDAY JULY 27th 2012
On Friday, the work week ends on a blissfully quiet note devoid of any annoying planetary aspects.
SATURDAY JULY 28th 2012
On Saturday, a powerful weekend starts on a sunny note when Retrograde Mercury backs up to exact alignment with the optimistic Leo Sun. Ambition and optimism are the keywords for this alignment. But because Mercury is Retrograde, you should be aware that this optimism may be slightly misplaced. Sometimes things that seem too good to be true actually aren't true. So a bit of skepticism won't hurt.
SUNDAY JULY 29th 2012
On Sunday, you will feel like having an impromptu picnic or house party when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in a sexy sextile to impulsive Uranus and that efficient party-organizer, Libra Saturn. Just be careful not to take casual remarks too personally when the Moon is in opposition to Venus for a couple of hours Sunday evening.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between July 30th and August 5th when the fiery Leo Sun forms a perfect trine with innovative Uranus, which is perfect for artists, scientists, gay activists and freedom-seekers of all sorts. More details next time ....
