SEPTEMBER 13th to 23rd, 2012
THURSDAY September 13th 2012
On Thursday brace yourself for unexpected developments in interpersonal relationshipswhen Venus trines with Uranus. This configuration blows away inhibitions and encourages even chronically shy people to flirt with romantic strangers. The motto is "nothing ventured, nothing gained" so don't hesitate.
FRIDAY September 14th 2012
On Friday you need to be careful when it comes to monetary expenditures when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in positive configurations with austere Saturn and abrupt Pluto but is in total opposition to foggy-minded Neptune. You go out with a set goal (Saturn) for buying something revolutionary to improve your life (Pluto) and end up spending way more than you had planned (Neptune).
SATURDAY/SUNDAY September 15th/16th 2012
This weekend is dominated by the VIRGO NEW MOON which occurs overnight Saturday/Sunday. Not only is ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligned with his solar father Ra-Herakhte, but the Moon also aligns in conjunction with Mercury on Sunday. In ANTINOUS MOON MAGIC we call this the PLOTINA MOON in honor of Emperor Trajan's wife, the Empress Plotina, who lobbied her husband on Hadrian's behalf, ensuring that he would be Trajan's successor. This is the Lunar Archetype of deep innerwisdom that comes from the "school of hard knocks." This moon is characterized by the wise old Curandera who needs no books or rituals because the magic is deep down inside her soul. She and the magic are the same.
MONDAY September 17th 2012
On Monday Mercury leaves dour Virgo and enters graceful and balanced Libra, ushering in three weeks devoted to fair play and diplomatic communications.
TUESDAY September 18th 2012
On Tuesday logjams in your life begin to break up when Pluto ends its six-month Retrograde phase and starts to move forward. Because Pluto is in Capricorn, this means that barriers and stalemates in the areas of financial structures and and even things like real estate will give way to forward progress.
WEDNESDAY September 19th 2012
On Wednesday global crises reach the boiling point when Uranus and Pluto are in an exact 90-degree square angle to each other. They have been moving into and out of this square aspect for months, and will continue to do so. The result is turmoil on all levels. Earthquakes, political and financial tremors, and even rumblings in your own personal life. Remember that the mighty oak breaks in high wind, while flexible bamboo only bends. Stay flexible!
THURSDAY September 20th 2012
On Thursday concentration is difficult when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is at right angles to nebulous Neptune. You may find yourself lost in dreams which, of course, means that this is a good day for meditation and magical work. You may have a hard time focusing, so just let your dreams take over.
FRIDAY September 21st 2012
On Friday the work week ends on a volatile note when Mercury goes opposite to unpredictable Uranus and forms a square to stubborn Capricorn Pluto. A casual remark is all it takes to set off a volcano of aggravation and conflict. On the global level, this means a minor incident can result in major consequences. In your own life, it means you need to be very careful not to rile anyone — or allow yourself to be upset by others.
SATURDAY September 22nd 2012
On Saturday the EQUINOX occurs shortly before 8 a.m. Los Angeles Time, which is 4 p.m. in the UK and about midnight in Sydney. This is when we celebrate the PERSEPHONEA when the Sun enters the first degree of Libra. In the Northern Hemisphere this is the Autumnal Equinox ushering in autumn. For our brothers in the Southern Hemisphere, this is the Vernal Equinox and spring is on the way — the jacarandas will soon be in bloom. Wherever you live, this is one of two days each year when daytime and nighttime are equal. It is time to reflect on balance in your own life. And you should also reflect on business and career opportunities because this is the CAPRICORN FIRST QUARTER MOON. In Antinous Moon Magic, we call this the MERCHANT MOON which offers you an opportunity to reap the benefits of your hard work — and find new opportunities for material advancement.
SUNDAY September 23rd 2012
On Sunday you feel itchy to get outside and go somewhere or do something, but your plans keep going awry and things don't go the way you have planned. That's because ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is aligned with rebellious Pluto and also forms right angles to Mercury and Uranus. It will be a roller-coaster ride. So the best thing is just to strap yourself in and enjoy the unexpected thrills and spills.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between September 24th and 30th when Jupiter/Moon/Mercury are aligned in a formation called a Grand Trine. This is a highly harmonious and fortuitous alignment. Also next week, the ARIES FULL MOON reminds you that the calendar may say it is autumn, but you can still sow some wild oats! More details next time ....
