March 14th to 24th, 2013
THURSDAY March 14th 2013
On Thursday Mercury reminds you that it is still very much in its Retrograde phase — postponements, delays, misplaced parcels, "lost" computer files all seem to work against you. Never fear! Mercury is a trickster and is only playing with you. Don't take things so seriously!
FRIDAY March 15th 2013
On Friday the work week ends on a busy yet somber note when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in 180-degree opposition to stern old Saturn. You may have to work late to get the back load of work off your desk.
SATURDAY March 16th 2013
On Saturday a party atmosphere prevails when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in a sexy sextile with Pisces Venus. The Taurus Moon wants to relax and enjoy food and drink and the better things of life ... with friends.
SUNDAY March 17th 2013
On Sunday Mercury does an about-face and starts going forward again as seen from Earth, ending three weeks of Retrograde "backwards" travel. So you can safely twitter friends and co-workers a prediction that certain "lost" computer files or parcels will show up by the time they go to work on Monday. Mercury going backwards creates this sort of impish mayhem with matters concerning communications, documents and money. Misplaced tickets, keys, "lost" computer files, letters and packages which vanish into postal limbo -- all are typical of Retrograde Mercury. The "lost" things turn up again as if by magic when Mercury goes Direct again. A skilled astrologer, Hadrian no doubt amazed his courtiers by accurately predicting when some "lost" document or wayward courier message would finally re-appear out of no where.
MONDAY March 18th 2013
On Monday the work week gets off to a great start when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns in conjunction with vivacious Gemini Jupiter. It's one of those days when it is actually fun to go to work.
TUESDAY March 19th 2013
On Tuesday feelings are easily hurt when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is at right angles to Venus and the Sun. The slightest off-hand comment can be taken as a dire insult.
WEDNESDAY March 20th 2013
On Wednesday energy levels get a boost when the Sun enters Aries for the Equinox ... first day of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere and first day of autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. The Equinox is the start of the astrological new year. The year 2013 is the YEAR OF THE MOON ... thus the Year of Antinous the Moon God. That means 2013 is a year of intense emotions, intuition, reflection, a year ruled by the Unconscious Mind.
THURSDAY March 21st 2013
On Thursday you can forget about getting any work done when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD goes VOID OF COURSE for 36 hours — causing delays, rescheduling, lost messages and missed opportunities. 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 — on the plus side, a VOC is perfect for meditation, dreamscaping and contact the spirit world.
FRIDAY March 22nd 2013
Overnight Thursday/Friday Venus leaves dreamy and romantic Pisces and charges into hot and horny Aries. Sitting in front of your computer wistfully fantasizing about Mr. Right suddenly gives way to the urge to go out and find him ... and not stop until you have found him. Aries Venus can be overly assertive and me-firsty in relationships. But if you are congenitally shy and retiring, this means you may finally work up the gumption to stand up for yourself ... and about time, too.
SATURDAY/SUNDAY March 23rd/24th 2013
This weekend promises to be just fine for socializing and relaxing — and also fine for getting any constructive work done around the house. The Virgo Moon is in a nice sextile with Jupiter which encourages social activity, but a Virgo Moon right-angle to Saturn goads you into doing something practical. So, how about inviting friends to help you paint a room or move furniture — with plenty of refreshments afterwards, of course.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between March 25th and 31st when the Libra Full Moon occurs on March 27th and is the lunar cycle we call the ORATOR MOON of diplomacy and balanced thinking. This is the perfect time for fulfilling dreams of finding just the right partner, the person who balances out your needs and desires perfectly. More details next time ....
