JANUARY 17 to 27, 2013
THURSDAY January 17th 2013
On Thursday Love is in the air with a capital "L" when Venus and Pluto align in conjunction in practical Capricorn. Pluto wants to dig down to the bottom of things and get to the root of any situation. In this case, Venus the love goddess is willing to get down and dirty and go all the way with Pluto. Any relationship formed during this Venus/Pluto cycle will be long-lasting and profoundly deep and meaningful.
FRIDAY January 18th 2013
On Friday opportunity will not just be knocking on the door — it will be banging loudly on the door thanks to a conjunction alignment between the Sun and Mercury in the last few degrees of work-oriented Capricorn. In addition, ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is at right angles to the Sun and Mercury for the ARIES FIRST QUARTER MOON. In Antinous Moon Magic, we call this the INVICTUS MOON a source of ceaseless light, warmth and beneficence. It is the lunar phase of ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD which dispels all doubts and inconsistencies. Invictus is consistency itself, steadiness and permanence. The Invictus Moon is all things bright and good and the bringer of all joy.
SATURDAY January 19th 2013
On Saturday your inbox will be bursting when the Sun and Mercury leave dour Capricorn and hyperspeeds into Aquarius. The next four weeks will be focused on networking, inventiveness and quirky new answers to stubborn old problems — but that "quirkiness" can also descend into street riots and anarchy ... just saying.
SUNDAY January 20th 2013
On Sunday tempers may flare as frustration levels rise when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in tense aspects with stubborn Saturn and angry Mars ... just saying.
MONDAY January 21st 2013
On Monday the work week gets off to a slow start when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is at right angles to Neptune. This is bad if you are in a goal-oriented job, but it is perfect for meditation and dreamscaping.
TUESDAY January 22nd 2013
On Tuesday you might want to splurge on a lottery ticket when Mercury is in fortuitous aspects to lucky Jupiter and surprise-filled Uranus.
WEDNESDAY January 23rd 2013
On Wednesday little productive work will get done when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is VOID OF COURSE for the entire day in most global time zones. Remember we always say you should 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.
THURSDAY January 24th 2013
On Thursday people around you may be a bit thin-skinned and over-sensitive when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is at right angles to impulsive Uranus while being in a dreamy trine to Neptune. People tend to speak off the cuff, and other people tend to misinterpret their remarks as insults.
FRIDAY January 25th 2013
On Friday the work week ends with mixed signals when the Sun and Uranus are in a positive sextil but Mercury is in a 90-degree right angle to stubborn Saturn. This is another one of those days when you feel you have one foot on the accelerator pedal and the other on the brake — that feeling has come up a lot in recent days.
SATURDAY/SUNDAY January 26th/27th 2013
This weekend you get an ego-boost and are ready for your chance to go for the gold — overnight Saturday/Sunday we come to the lunar phase we call the LION HUNT MOON, the LEO FULL MOON. It is a reminder that Antinous slew a man-eating lion in Egypt. Antinous peered out into the barren wilderness with all its deep and hidden dangers. He charged forth, his bridle-reins in one hand and an adamantine-tipped lance in the other, and he faced the beast unafraid. For Antinous knew he would triumph over death. The Spirit of the Lion Hunt is the bravery of Antinous the Lion Slayer.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between January 28th and February 3rd when Jupiter changes directions and both Mars and Venus change signs %mdash; signalling an opportunity for you to make over-due changes in your life. More details next time ....
