April 18th to 28th, 2013
THURSDAY April 18th 2013
On Thursday the Sun and Mars are perfectly aligned in conjunction in Taurus to boost energy levels even as ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is at right angles to the Sun for the CANCER FIRST QUARTER MOON which we call the NARCISSUS MOON of Antinous ... Narcissus is the Spirit which tunes out all distractions and all other people in order to focus on the Divinity within. This Lunar Phase is the Spirit of Self-Love and Same-Sex Love. It is forever gazing into its own reflection and whispering to itself: You are Divine! The reflection and the viewer are one and the same. The Spirit of Narcissus is the Divinity which holds a mirror up to ourselves.
FRIDAY April 19th 2013
On Friday Taurus Venus and Pisces Neptune create the right atmosphere for a date night when you just want to kick back and enjoy all the pleasures life has to offer — to excess. You have been warned.
SATURDAY/SUNDAY April 20th/21st 2013
This weekend you will notice a palpable shift in energies when both the Sun and Mars leave jumpy Aries and sail into more placid Taurus. The result of these three powerful planets in the Sign of the Bull can result in stubbornness and refusal to change attitudes — and a "Bull in the China Shop" tendency to smash resistance from others.
MONDAY April 22nd 2013
On Monday moody frustration gums up the relationship works when Venus and Saturn are in opposition to each other. Little things get in the way and slow down or even halt any forward movement in your dealings with others. But remember that Saturn is the cosmic teacher — take a moment to focus on those areas where the roadblocks and barriers are worst. Saturn wants you to roll up your sleeves and find a way to resolve those problems.
TUESDAY April 23rd 2013
On Tuesday the Venus-Saturn opposition continues to cast long shadows over all relationships, both at home and at work. Pay heed to the little problems which Saturn indicates need special attention now — before they grow into bigger relationship problems.
WEDNESDAY April 24th 2013
On Wednesday we come to the luckiest day of the week. ANTINOUS THE GAY GOD is in fortuitous aspects to Jupiter, Venus and Pluto while the Sun enjoys a dreamy sextile with intuitive Neptune. Follow your intuition ... this might be your lucky day to pick winning lottery numbers.
THURSDAY April 25th 2013
On Thursday the SCORPIO FULL MOON occurs during the first Lunar Eclipse of 2013. The Scorpio Full Moon is a moon for penetrating the veil of lies and illusion and seeing clearly who are your friends (and who are not) and also seeing yourself for what you are. For that reason, we call it the ENEMY MOON in Antinous Moon Magic. Meditations and rituals during the Scorpio Full Moon are best suited for helping you identify who and what your "enemies" are. This could indeed be a person who is your enemy, someone who is working against you, trying to impede your progress. But more often it represents the "inner enemy" — your own worst enemy sometimes being yourself. It represents habitual thought patterns, low self-esteem, irrational fears and other "enemies" which work against you. You must face and confront your enemy — especially if that means confronting your true self.
FRIDAY April 26th 2013
On Friday you can forget about getting any work done when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD goes VOID OF COURSE for 26 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.
SATURDAY April 27th 2013
On Saturday you get your annual lesson in patience when the Sun goes opposite Saturn. This happens once a year and always puts the spotlight on problem areas. This time around, the Sun is in Taurus and Saturn is in Scorpio. So the frustrations you experience most likely pertain to questions of trust and honesty involving money and stability. As always, the Sun is pointing a spotlight and Saturn is pointing a gnarly finger at the problems which you need to focus on.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between April 29th and May 5th when Mercury flies into Taurus on May 1st — the first of its three sign changes this calendar month. More details next time ....
