March 7th to 17, 2013
THURSDAY March 7th 2013
On Thursday your love affairs are enhanced along with your business affairs when love planet Venus and commerce planet Mercury each engage in multiple aspects with Saturn and Pluto. This is a day to keep your eyes open for opportunities to your advantage — both in your work life and in your love life. Overnight Thursday/Friday Mercury aligns with Venus in one of the most beautiful astrological configurations in ANTINOUS MOON MAGIC ... the HERMAPHRODITUS configuration ... the original "Two Spirit" deity of Classical Greece and Rome ... Tonight's celestial alignment of Mercury/Hernes and Venus/Aphrodite is a magical night for meditations and rituals concerning gender issues. Hermaphroditus is often portrayed looking into a mirror ... delving into the inner spiritual and divine meaning of her/his identity. Tonight is the night to do some scrying into your own divine mirror.
FRIDAY/SATURDAY March 8th-9th 2013
On Friday and Saturday you can forget about getting any work done when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD goes VOID OF COURSE for over 32 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.
SUNDAY March 10th 2013
On Sunday you may feel an impulse to go out and splurge when the Moon and Retrograde Mercury square off against exaggeration-prone Jupiter. Your diet goes out the window, you drink too much and end up spending too much money — and you have lots of fun doing it.
MONDAY March 11th 2013
On Monday ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns with the Sun for the gentle PISCES NEW MOON. In Antinous Moon Magic this is the lunar phase we call the DOG MOON of fidelity, friendship and faithfulness. The Spirit of the Dog Moon is loving and supportive friendship. This Spirit is loving and faithful, comforting you with familiarity when you see yourself reflected in this Spirit. It is the perfect combination of comfort and stimulus to grow and provides a wonderful companion that walks with you through life, helping you define and refine who you are and who you choose to be every day. Meditations and rituals are best suited for looking into friendship and trust issues.
TUESDAY March 12th 2013
On Tuesday the energy levels go off the scale when Mars leaves watery Pisces, where Mars feels very uncomfortable, and charges into fiery Aries, where Mars feels really very much at home. You will be itching to get up and get moving. But wait! The Sun, Mercury and Venus are all still floating in dreamy Pisces. The Sun and Venus will join Mars in Aries very soon — so think of this week as training for a marathon race. The race won't start for a while yet, but you can get into shape and psych yourself for the ambitious road ahead of you.
WEDNESDAY March 13th 2013
On Wednesday unexpected glitches and setbacks may knock the wind out of your sails just very briefly when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in antsy aspects to unpredictable Uranus and exaggeration-prone Jupiter — and at right angles to all-or-nothing Pluto.
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.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between March 18th and 24th when the Sun enters Aries on March 20th for the Equinox ... first day of Spring in the Northern Hemisphere and first day of autumn in the Southern Hemisphere. Venus enters Aries on March 21st ... but then trouble arrives on March 22nd when angry Aries Mars picks a fight with rebellious Uranus and revolution-minded Pluto. More details next time ....
