THE HADRIAN's VILLA MOON

THE TAURUS FULL MOON


TONIGHT's Taurus Full Moon is the lunar phase which is called the HADRIAN's VILLA MOON in Antinous Moon Magic.

The Taurus Full Moon best represents home and comfort following the harvest. In the Northern Hemisphere autumnal storms rage and temperatures plummet. 


Crops have been harvested, animals brought in from the meadows. It is time to come in from the cold.

Each lunar phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the Hadrian's Villa Moon is the Spirit of Home-Sweet-Home. 


This is the Spirit which loves to build a comfy nest, a place to call one's own. Be it ever so humble, there's no place like home for this Spirit. It is the Spirit of the special place which is your home, whether it be a rented room or a sprawling mansion.

This Spirit invites you to step inside, close the door behind you, kick off your shoes and revel in being Home.

The key words during this lunar phase are: Home. Hearth. Comfort. Security. Stability. Nesting. Cocooning. Tradition.

Meditation and magical rituals performed during this lunar phase are well suited to delving into issues concerning your home base, the place or situation where you feel at home and most comfortable. This can involve a house or apartment. It can also be a city or a state of mind.

It can literally refer to your domicile in questions about material matters such as mortgages and repairs.

In a larger sense, the energies which are exalted during this lunar phase concern your spiritual center, your focal point of being.

Antinous Astrology Forecast

OCT 25 to NOV 4, 2012


THURSDAY October 25th 2012

On Thursday you find that last weekend's MERCHANT MOON is waxing not only in moonlight but also in influence on your career opportunities. On Thursday the intuitive Pisces Moon forms a generous sextile to Capricorn Pluto to show you who or what is blocking you in your job and career. Who are what is giving you money? Who or what is robbing you of money?


FRIDAY October 26th 2012

On Friday this remarkable career-oriented week which started with last weekend's MERCHANT MOON culminates in a Moon/Mercury trine which enables you to sniff out job opportunities which other, less sensitized people may miss out on. Don't be surprised when an old friend shows up with an offer you cannot refuse.


SATURDAY October 27th 2012

On Saturday ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns in conjunction with Uranus and squares off with Pluto to herald a power-filled weekend. You may need to burn off excess energy with a workout or sports.


SUNDAY October 28th 2012

On Sunday we come to Station 6 of the SACRED NIGHTS PATHWAY. This year the November 28th anniversary of the Death of Antinous coincides almost exactly with the Taurus Full Moon. That is the lunar phase which, in Antinous Moon Magic, is called the HADRIAN's VILLA MOON. This is a way for Antinous the Gay God to help you find your spiritual home, the celestial palace you have made for yourself. This station on the pathway is aimed at helping you focus and center your spiritual heart. It is also wise to make sure you set your clock back one hour to Standard Time, if you live outside North America. (Americans do the time switch on November 4th.)


MONDAY October 29th 2012

You awake Monday to find that both Mercury and Venus have changed signs. Venus has left stodgy Virgo and enters stylish Libra — get ready for a style makeover! Also, Mercury leaves suspicious-minded Scorpio and enters adventurous Sagittarius. Mercury will dawdle in Sagittarius from now until New Year's Eve because it goes Retrograde for three weeks in November, even slipping backwards into Scorpio for a time. Sadge Mercury is a time of upbeat optimism and idealism on the one hand. On the other hand, however, Sadge Mercury can be naive and careless with details. The confusion starts on Monday when Sagittarius Mercury is in a fuzzy trine to foggy-minded Neptune.


TUESDAY October 30th 2012

On Tuesday we come to Station 7 of the SACRED NIGHTS PATHWAY. The Sun forms a powerful sextile to Pluto on October 30th, which is FOUNDATION DAY in the Religion of Antinous. This is the day that the SACRED CITY OF ANTINOOPOLIS was founded by Hadrian at the location in Egypt where Antinous died. This celestial configuration helps you clear away rubble and debris to make a new foundation for the future.


WEDNESDAY October 31st 2012

On Wednesday the placid Taurus Moon squares off against foggy Neptune and goes opposite to Sagittarius Mercury to slow down the pace considerably. This is a good day to kick back and enjoy the finer things in life.


THURSDAY November 1st 2012

On Thursday relationship issues top the agenda when Venus is in opposition to unpredictable Uranus. ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in a trine to Uranus, stepping up the "freedom urge" in interpersonal relationships.


FRIDAY November 2nd 2012

On Friday the work week ends on a gossipy note when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns in conjunction with exaggeration-prone Jupiter in convivial Gemini.


SATURDAY November 3rd 2012

On Saturday the weekend gets off to an emotional start when Venus and Pluto are at right angles. You feel as if you are on an emotional roller-coaster ride which veers from over-sentimentality to total annoyance. Try to avoid drawing hasty conclusions from other people's outbursts.


SUNDAY November 4th 2012

On Sunday your emotions are on an even keel and harmony prevails when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in a generous trine to the Scorpio Sun. You may not feel like leaving your cozy nest all day. If you live in North America, enjoy the extra hour's sleep due to the switch from Daylight Saving Time to Standard Time. (The rest of us made that switch October 28th.)


SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:

Another exciting week lies ahead between November 5th and 11th when Mercury goes Retrograde on the day of the US presidential election — an indication that a major snafu could occur in ballot counting and relaying vote tallies. We could see a repeat of the vote-counting confusion that occurred during the 2000 election — when Retrograde Mercury caused a reversal of results so that the declared winner Al Gore eventually lost to George W. Bush. More details next time ....

Antinous Astrology Forecast

OCTOBER 18 to 28, 2012


THURSDAY October 18th 2012

On Thursday vitality and self-confidence are the keywords when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns with exuberant Uranus before later aligning in conjunction with ambitious Mars. You can look forward to fortuitous "coincidences" which take you forward.


FRIDAY October 19th 2012

On Friday the work weeks ends on a quarrelsome note when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD and Venus square off against each other. That can lead to arguments and setbacks — unless you live in the western half of the Americas , where the Moon goes VOID OF COURSE after lunch time and no one will have the energy to argue. Basically, you may as well take the afternoon off from work because the VOC MOON will prevent you from getting any work done. The rest of us on the East Coast or in Europe and Australia will have check-out our time cards from work long before that VOC MOON begins, so we can just look forward to an uneventful evening.


SATURDAY October 20th 2012

On Saturday you will want to be VERY careful doing ambitious chores around the house. ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns with renovation-crazy Pluto, but both are in an accident-prone square to Uranus. So when your partner suggests a big renovation project, make sure to take proper safety precautions.


SUNDAY October 21st 2012

Sunday is the best day of the week for social gatherings when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms a party-atmosphere trine with Venus and a convivial sextile with Mercury. This is the ideal day to hook up with friends.


MONDAY October 22nd 2012

On Monday we come to Station 5 of the SACRED NIGHTS PATHWAY. The Moon squares off against the Sun for the Capricorn First Quarter Moon, which we call the MERCHANT MOON. This is the second Merchant Moon in succession, the second time in four weeks that the First Quarter Moon has occurred in Capricorn. This configuration is underscoring the vital importance of balancing your private life with your work life, keeping your feet planted firmly on the ground while striving for the stars!


TUESDAY October 23rd 2012

On Tuesday the reverberations of the MERCHANT MOON get a boost when the Moon trines Jupiter and when the Sun enters incisive Scorpio. Deep and profound self-confidence help you open yourself up to bold new career choices.


WEDNESDAY October 24th 2012

On Wednesday you can use the energies of the MERCHANT MOON to focus your intuition on career and money-making opportunities when the Moon enters dreamy Pisces and aligns in conjunction with Neptune. Listen to your inner voice to tell you just how much money you really need and whether your job fulfills your most important needs.


THURSDAY October 25th 2012

On Thursday you find that last weekend's MERCHANT MOON is waxing not only in moonlight but also in influence on your career opportunities. On Thursday the intuitive Pisces Moon forms a generous sextile to Capricorn Pluto to show you who or what is blocking you in your job and career. Who are what is giving you money? Who or what is robbing you of money?

SACRED NIGHTS PATHWAY STATION 4

MAKING A COURAGEOUS DECISION


ON October 15th we come to Station 4 of the SACRED NIGHTS PATHWAY TO THE DARK SUN OF FORTUNE which started September 29th which and continues until the extraordinary Solar Eclipse of November 13/14.

In Stations 1 and 2 you saw what needs to change in your life and you received the energy you need to heal your interpersonal relationships. At Station 3, you got an injection of determination and courage to rid yourself of unnecessary fears which have been holding you back.

Now, at Station 4, Courageous Mars forms a trine with impetuous Uranus during the Libra New Moon, the lunar phase we call the TRIPOD MOON of finding balance in relationships.

This decision-making moon teams up with the courage of Mars and bold action of Uranus to enable you to make a courageous decision for the future.

This may be a brilliant idea that could change your life and your fortunes. But it could also be a decision to set off on a bold new unexplored pathway which frees you from the fetters of the past.

So often we do things which are wrong for us, we stay in relationships which we know are bad for us. But we do it because we think that is what is expected of us. We do it because we owe it to our partner, our co-workers, our friends or our family.

We set ourselves up to be a doormat for others ... usually without their knowledge or complicitly. They aren't manipulating us. We are setting ourselves up to be failures, we are erectiing barriers in our own paths.

If you were born under the sun sign of CANCER you probably have a tendency to sacrifice yourself and subjugate your needs for others. You deny them the opportunity to take part in caring and sharing. You needlessly sacrifice yourself for fake friends and unloving partners.

If you a CAPRICORN you may tend to take on sole responsibility for your partner, your friends, family and even your co-workers. You work yourself to death for them without giving them the chance to share your burden. In fact, they resent you for taking charge.


Poor PISCES swims with the other fish, even into the jaws of the shark since it is easier just to dream and go with the current than to make hard decisions and swim in your own direction.

But no more!

If you are an ARIES, Station 4 provides you with the energy to go up to your repressive boss (see Capricorn above) and tell him you're quitting to take a job elsewhere where you may earn less but you have more opportunities for advancement.

If you are SAGITTARIUS, you will welcome Station 4's impetus to enable you to launch off into an exciting new path.

It's the same with LEO, who only needs a little nudge to make a major breakthrough.

AQUARIUS and GEMINI have been thinking about this decision for some time. Now both of these "thinker signs" will perceive the opportunity for decisive action they have been waiting for.

Even usually indecisive LIBRA will get off the fence and make a decision to discard unnecessary emotional baggage.

If you are a TAURUS, you tend to get comfortably stuck in habits, even bad habits and bad situations. At least you know your comfy old bad habits and bad relationships. You have been reluctant to discard them. But now Mars and Uranus are forcing you to consider how much more comfortable you could be if you would just take one step in a new direction.

VIRGO has the biggest difficulty of all the signs because Virgoans worry and feel inadequate at the best of times, making them ideal doormats for others. Listen to what Antinous the Moon God is whispering into your ear: "Your first duty is to your own Gay Spiritual Heart."

If you were born under the sign of SCORPIO you have been muttering and grumbling for the longest time about how your life is a lie. The Cosmic Antinoian Energies of October 15th cast a bright light on all those deceits around you. And being a Scorpio, you will know exactly how to wield that stinger of yours to put things right so you can find your true pathway.

This Day of Courageous Decision-Making is not necessarily easy. It is never easy to say good-bye to habitual thought patterns and relationships.

But this is a great opportunity to set your feet on the Sacred Nights Pathway to yourself.

THE TRIPOD MOON

LIBRA NEW MOON OF INDECISION


TONIGHT's Libra New Moon is the Lunar Phase we call the TRIPOD MOON in Antinous Moon Magic in honor of the clouds of incense with which three-footed incense braziers filled the Ancient Temples of Antinous.

The clouds of incense created a sacred other-worldly atmosphere of intoxication and purification.

By its burning, incense symbolized the zeal of the followers of Antinous, its sweet fragrance echoed the "scent of sanctity" believed to be exuded by the Most Great and Good God.

Its rising smoke symbolized the ascent of prayers to Antinous. 

Also, incense creates a cloud, which is another symbol for the altered state of the Divine. Incense blocks out everyday concerns of the rational mind and opens the heart to the Divine. Your soul is flooded by so many impressions that rational thought becomes clouded.

The Libra New Moon symbolizes those situations in which you find it hard to make decisions, you cannot pick an item from a menu because "it all looks so good" so you let others decide for you. This Lunar Phase is important in showing you how to "clear away the clouds" so that clear decision-making is possible.

Each Lunar Phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the Tripod Moon is the Spirit of Vapors and Clouds. This Spirit is intangible, hard to grasp, impossible to pin down. It is a Will-O'-the-Wisp. This Spirit is amorphous and formless, only vaguely discernible like the ectoplasm of a ghost.

It does not have its head in the clouds, but rather it is the clouds themselves. This Spirit has trouble making decisions, not because it cannot see any options, but rather because it can see every option and the ramifications of every decision. This Spirit has problems seeing clearly precisely because it see too much.

The keywords during this Lunar Phase are: Clouded thinking. Confusion. Distraction. Indecision. Doubts. Angst. Worries. Altered Consciousness. Smoke Screen. Haziness. Fog.

Meditation, rituals, smudge ceremonies and especially aromatherapy carried out during this Lunar Phase help to "clear the fog" about making important decisions as well as cleansing and purifying yourself and your sacred environment.

Antinous Astrology Forecast

OCTOBER 11 to 21, 2012


THURSDAY October 11th 2012

Thursday gets off to a sleepy start and you may not hear your alarm clock because ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is Void of Course for much of the day. That means setbacks and delays are the order of the day. Nothing especially bad will happen. But nothing especially good either. Nothing much at all will happen until the Moon moves into the next sign late Thursday.


FRIDAY October 12th 2012

On Friday you shake off Thursday's sleepy-head atmosphere and the work week ends on an industrious note when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD enters dutiful Virgo and squares off against Jupiter. You may get so busy that you lose sight of the overview. Moon-square-Jupiter gets over-exuberant and has trouble focusing. Remember to prioritize.


SATURDAY October 13th 2012

On Saturday it's déjà vu all over again — another lazy Saturday just like last Saturday because ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD goes VOID OF COURSE again for more than 24 hours straight in the Americas and Europe — just like last Saturday! Remember we said to think of ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD as your favorite rock or pop star giving a concert. The VOC MOON is the break between sets. The singer goes back stage for a costume change and psychs themselves up for the next set. Meanwhile, the audience is waiting impatiently out front while video projections and doo-wah girls fill the interlude. That's what a VOID OF COURSE MOON feels like. Nothing much will happen during this VOC period. Nothing very bad will happen. But nothing very good either.


SUNDAY October 14th 2012

On Sunday it would be best to steer clear of argumentative situations when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in dicey aspects to aggressive Mars, abrupt Uranus and intense Pluto. Bite you lip or better yet, retreat to your room and close the door. Avoid online forum discussions which might get out of hand.


MONDAY October 15th 2012

On Monday we come to Station 4 of the SACRED NIGHTS PATHWAY. Courageous Mars forms a trine with impetuous Uranus during the Libra New Moon, the lunar phase we call the TRIPOD MOON of finding balance in relationships. This decision-making moon teams up with the courage of Mars and bold action of Uranus to enable you to make a courageous decision for the future.


TUESDAY October 16th 2012

On Tuesday Mercury (mind) and Venus (heart) form a lovely sextile which boosts your communicative skills, especially when it comes to communications involving partners and coworkers.


WEDNESDAY October 17th 2012

Wednesday will not be an easy day. You may find yourself spinning your wheels. The more effort you exert to make things work, the less progress you make. That's because ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD goes VOID OF COURSE again for a dozen hours in the Americas and Europe — just as it has several times in the past couple of weeks! Remember we said to think of ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD as "taking a break" between two signs of the Zodiac. He is off stage getting ready for his next stage appearance. That's what a VOID OF COURSE MOON feels like. Nothing much will happen during this VOC period. Nothing very bad will happen. But nothing very good either.


THURSDAY October 18th 2012

On Thursday vitality and self-confidence are the keywords when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns with exuberant Uranus before later aligning in conjunction with ambitious Mars. You can look forward to fortuitous "coincidences" which take you forward.


FRIDAY October 19th 2012

On Friday the work weeks ends on a quarrelsome note when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD and Venus square off against each other. That can lead to arguments and setbacks — unless you live in the western half of the Americas , where the Moon goes VOID OF COURSE after lunch time and no one will have the energy to argue. Basically, you may as well take the afternoon off from work because the VOC MOON will prevent you from getting any work done. The rest of us on the East Coast or in Europe and Australia will have check-out our time cards from work long before that VOC MOON begins, so we can just look forward to an uneventful evening.

SACRED NIGHTS PATHWAY STATION 3

MARS AND JUPITER BANISH YOUR FEARS



MARS has lefts the murky depths of Scorpio and is soaring into the lofty heights of Sagittarius. The Sun is moving into a generous trine with jovial Jupiter even as the Cancer Third Quarter Moon signals the edgy DISCORDIA MOON of discontent with things as they have been.

On October 8th we come to Station 3 of the PATHWAY TO THE DARK SUN OF FORTUNE which started September 29th which and continues until the extraordinary Solar Eclipse of November 13/14.

In Stations 1 and 2 you saw what needs to change in your life and you received the energy you need to heal your interpersonal relationships. Now, at Station 3, you get an injection of determination and courage to rid yourself of unnecessary fears which have been holding you back.

All star signs are affected, but if you are a GEMINI you will especially notice this Mars/Jovian energy boost which makes you realize just how absurd your fears about money have been.

And if you are SAGITTARIUS, you will feel as if you are coming home to your jovial old self when Mars moves into your Sun Sign and, during the course of the next six weeks, crosses your Natal Sun for extra empowerment.

Even LIBRA feels less uncertain and insecure about how he or she comes across to others. This celestial configuration gives Librans a rare chance to express their true selves without hesitation.

Of course this configuration causes ARIES to brim with dynamic determination. Your boss finally recognizes what a treasure you are.

If you are a LEO, this is a special day of the year for you which embues you with trust in your partner. Oftentimes Leo is afraid to trust others. But this is the day to let down your guard.

And for AQUARIUS, Station 3 offers the opportunity for you to go forth with all those grandiose ideas you have been dreaming about, but were a bit afraid to put into action.

TAURUS is able to overcome superfluous fears about material matters such livelihood and paying the rent. Instead of that sense of dread that has been keeping you awake nights, you suddenly get a clear idea of practical steps you can take to boost security.

CANCER will also be able to shake off fears about home and hearth and see the situation more clearly so as to move forward confidently.

VIRGO is the zodiac's worrywort anyway, but this celestial configuration gives insights into who your true friends are and who will be there to back you up when the showdown comes.

As a SCORPIO, you are now able to rid yourself of old grudges and dark feelings which have been holding you back. You have deeper insights into the inner workings of the world than the other star signs have. And this configuration makes your clairvoyant dreams even more insightful than usual.

If you are a CAPRICORN you can be in store for a major change, but only if you are willing to open yourself to the feelings which others offer you. You may be truly surprised to encounter help from people you had never thought were on your side.

PISCES develops a whole new trust in life itself after recent weeks of disillusionment and disappointment. 

For all star signs, the new feeling of self-confidence which comes from this celestial configuration involving Sagittarius Mars, the Sun/Jupiter Trine and the Discordia Moon are a brilliant opportunity to nurture healthy self-love, which is one of the most important goals of this spiritual pathway.

THE DISCORDIA MOON

THE CANCER THIRD QUARTER MOON



DISCORDIA is the deity we honor during the Cancer Third Quarter Moon, which occurs after the Autumnal Equinox and heralds the onset of Winter in the Northern Hemisphere. For our brothers in the Southern Hemisphere the Discordia Moon signals that hot days will soon be here.

In Antinous Moon Magic, each Lunar Phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the Discordia Moon is the Spirit of Rage and Fury. It is the embodiment of wrathfulness, exasperation, irritation, dudgeon, bile, gall, malice, combativeness and irascibility. It is as mad as can be and has no more patience.

The key words are: Rage. Wrath. Anger. Dispute. Fighting. Intense Annoyance. Aggravation. Aggression. Conflict. War.

This Lunar Phase takes in all "rage issues" from annoyance with a loud neighbor to all-out physical altercations.

In ages past, this was when the gypsy fortune-teller would do a reading for a young man, saying, "War is coming and you must fight!"

On a psychological level, meditations during this Lunar Phase show where your anger or aggression lies in a reading. On a gay spiritual level, it shows where you need to stand up and assert yourself.

Anger can be a powerful ally, since it is filled with energy that we can harness and use to create change in the world.

It is one of the most cathartic emotions, and it can also be a very effective cleanser of the emotional system.

However, when it becomes a habit, it actually loses its power to transform and becomes an obstacle to growth.

Meditations and rituals during the Discordia Moon can help you in identifying the role anger plays in your life and restoring it to its proper function so that it can bring new energy and expansiveness to your emotional life.

Antinous Astrology Forecast

OCTOBER 4 to 14, 2012


THURSDAY October 4th 2012

On Thursday Jupiter does a turnaround and goes Retrograde (backwards as seen from Earth) for the next six month, ushering in half a year of introspection and review. The downside is that you may feel you are spinning your wheels much of the time. But the good news is that Jupiter extends its stay in upbeat and idea-filled Gemini for four months — so that reviewing old ideas helps you come up with great new ideas during this Retrograde Jupiter phase.


FRIDAY October 5th 2012

On Friday one of the biggest changes of the year occurs when Mercury and Saturn align in conjunction and then march hand-in-hand into incisive Scorpio. And there's more: The Moon passes directly in front of the planet Jupiter. This is the JUPITER OCCULTATION and makes this day extrordinarily fortuitous. Saturn has been in laid-back Libra for the past two years, and will spend the next two-and-a-half years in Scorpio, where persistent Saturn will dig out every dark secret and every dark lesson that may be hiding somewhere deep down inside. This is going to be electrifying for the US presidential election (just for starters) and you can expect some shocking revelation to change the course of the election. From now through 2015, you can expect some unpleasant and very hard lessons both globally and in our own personal lives.


SATURDAY October 6th 2012

On Saturday you lean back and take it easy because nothing much will happen today. That's because ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD goes VOID OF COURSE for more than 24 hours straight in the Americas and Europe! Think of ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD as your favorite rock or pop star giving a concert. The VOC MOON is the break between sets. The singer goes back stage for a costume change and psychs themselves up for the next set. Meanwhile, the audience is waiting impatiently out front while video projections and doo-wah girls fill the interlude. That's what a VOID OF COURSE MOON feels like. Nothing much will happen during this VOC period. Nothing very bad will happen. But nothing very good either.


SUNDAY October 7th 2012

On Sunday it's adventure time when adventurous Mars enters jovial Sagittarius for the next six weeks. This is a restless period of high-minded spiritual expansion, learning and travel — astral travel as well as earthly travel.


MONDAY October 8th 2012

On Monday Mars enters upbeat Sagittarius as the Sun forms a lucky trine with jovial Jupiter during the Cancer Third Quarter Moon which we call the DISCORDIA MOON. This is Station 3 of the SACRED NIGHTS PATHWAY and is absolutely the perfect day for sweeping aside doubts and fears which have been plaguing your relationships. You saw at Station 2 what needs to be done, and now you can do it.


TUESDAY October 9th 2012

On Tuesday the rosy glow from the generous Sun/Jupiter configuration continues to provide "lucky coincidences" in your life. And Venus forms a trine with Pluto to ensure that intensely romantic feelings are also in store.


WEDNESDAY October 10th 2012

On Wednesday you can expect answers to some questions which have been plaguing you for the longest time. It may take a little digging, but Mercury sextile Pluto mean that the answer will be found. There could also be some surprise revelations in the US presidential campaign.


THURSDAY October 11th 2012

Thursday gets off to a sleepy start and you may not hear your alarm clock because ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is Void of Course for much of the day. That means setbacks and delays are the order of the day. Nothing especially bad will happen. But nothing especially good either. Nothing much at all will happen until the Moon moves into the next sign late Thursday.


FRIDAY October 12th 2012

On Friday you shake off Thursday's sleepy-head atmosphere and the work week ends on an industrious note when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD enters dutiful Virgo and squares off against Jupiter. You may get so busy that you lose sight of the overview. Moon-square-Jupiter gets over-exuberant and has trouble focusing. Remember to prioritize.


SATURDAY October 13th 2012

On Saturday it's déjà vu all over again — another lazy Saturday just like last Saturday because ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD goes VOID OF COURSE again for more than 24 hours straight in the Americas and Europe — just like last Saturday!

SACRED NIGHTS PATHWAY STATION 2

HEALING YOUR LOVE



VENUS enters Virgo and forms a healing aspect to Saturn today as we come to Station 2 of the PATHWAY TO THE DARK SUN OF FORTUNE which started last week and continues until the extraordinary Solar Eclipse of November 13/14.

In Station 1 last week we saw what needs to be changed in your life. Now, at Station 2, you receive energy to help you heal your love in the interpersonal relationships in your life. These can be relationships of an intimate nature or also relationships with acquaintances and co-workers.

Virgo Venus is tired of flirting and non-commitment. Virgo Venus gives you the healing energy you need to make your interpersonal relationships work in a more positive way for you than they have in the past. This energy envelops you in self-confidence concerning your relationships. You will need this loving shield as we progress through the remaining seven stations of this life-changing pathway.

Station 2 arms you with a new commitment to interpersonal relationships, a bold new determination to persevere and make headway so that your relationships are not one-sided, but rather are truly interdependent and sharing relationships.

For ARIES individuals, this energy complements your Sun Sign. The only thing to learn here is that you don't have to do everything yourself. Be willing to share responsibilities in your relationships.

For TAURUS born people, sharing comes easy but you must avoid being stubborn and stuck in a rut. Be willing to try new things in your relationships.

For GEMINI the lesson here is to focus on your relationships one at a time. Try not to scatter your thoughts and ideas. Focus and listen to what your partner has to tell you.

CANCER comes und extra pressure from Saturn right now to heed the lessons of your relationships without becoming sulky and despondent. When you ask for constructive criticism about your relationship, don't then take it personally and feel insulted.

LEO needs these healing Saturn/Venus energies in order to listen more closely to others rather than thinking of all relationships as being about yourself.

For VIRGO individuals this is a perfect configuration. Venus will be aligning with your natal sun in the next six weeks and Saturn is in a good aspect to your sun. Just be your loving and caring self. And avoid the Virgoan tendency to worry and feel inadequate.

If you are LIBRA you can expect these cosmic energies to help you to be more honest with yourself about your relationships. Librans are so skilled at diplomacy that they often deceive themselves into believing the little white lies they tell about their relationships. This is a good time to take a hard look at the truth.

SCORPIO can expect a re-birth of love, a regeneration of a relationship which has been dead or dying for a long time. Station 2 gives you the right words to make a new start.

SAGITTARIUS needs the energies of Station 2 to open up about relationship feelings. This is hard for Sagittarians right now. These energies are vitally needed.

For CAPRICORN the Venus/Saturn energies serve as a key to help you open up and finally express your feelings in your relationships.

For AQUARIUS the lesson here is to let others close to you. Virgo Venus and your old friend Saturn (formerly ruler of Aquarius) will help you to let others inside the barriers you have constructed around yourself. You think you don't need others. But you need them very badly. Deep down inside you know you do. Let them in!

This is the finest hour for PISCES individuals who have no problem loving others but who sometimes allow others to walk all over them and hurt them. Venus and Saturn are giving you the strength to express your needs to others so that you are not a doormat, so that you get the respect you deserve.
