May 30 to JUNE 9, 2013
THURSDAY May 30th 2013
On Thursday you should take advantage of Mercury's last day in its home sign of Gemini to rush out and buy that new computer, car or smart phone or sign the lease on that new place ... before Mercury plunges into the mopey and pouty waters of Cancer on Friday. Cancer Mercury tends to go with other people's decisions ... so act while your mind is still made-up.
FRIDAY May 31st 2013
On Friday the work week comes to a screeching halt when Mercury leaves chatty Gemini and dives into emotional Cancer ... even as Mars leaves stodgy Taurus and charges into Gemini. Cancer Mercury tends to do whatever others want as meanwhile Gemini Mars is very reckless with little details like the truth, preferring ham-fisted propaganda and outright lies instead. An interesting several weeks lie ahead for us all.
SATURDAY June 1st 2013
Overnight Friday/Saturday the Pisces Third Quarter Moon occurs, the wistful, wish-filled Lunar Phase which we call the LOTUS MOON. It is perhaps the most spiritual of all the Lunar Phase Spirits because it knows that its wait will not be in vain. It is waiting for something it knows must and will come to pass. It is what the Portuguese call "SAUDADE," a bitter-sweet longing for someone or something just out of reach. Tonight is the night for wish-fulfillment and casting spells to get your heart's desire ... the key, of course, is to understand what it is that your heart TRULY desires.
SUNDAY June 2nd 2013
On Sunday it is time to put those wish-fulfillment exercises into action when the Gemini Sun forms a sextile with impulsive Aries Uranus ... this aspect serves as a jump-start to get you moving ... and to turn your dreams into reality.
MONDAY June 3rd 2013
On Monday don't be surprised if you wake up feeling wistful and nostalgic for your childhood home — that's because overnight Sunday/Monday Venus leaves exuberant Gemini and plunges into emotional, family-oriented Cancer. The next few weeks will be focused on June, moon and spoon. But Venus will only be in Cancer for 24 days this year before sliding into fiery, me-firsty Leo. So enjoy the nostalgic blasts from the past while you can.
TUESDAY June 4th 2013
On Tuesday you roll up your sleeves and make some serious headway on stubborn projects which have not budged for the longest time, when Mercury forms a productive trine with Saturn.
WEDNESDAY June 5th 2013
On Wednesday progress is slow and steady when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in opposition to Saturn but in positive aspects to Mercury and Pluto. Patience is the key. Things are moving, but just not very quickly.
THURSDAY June 6th 2013
On Thursday you can catch your breath and take it easy because ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD makes no important aspects with any of the major planets. Re-charge your batteries because ....
FRIDAY June 7th 2013
On Friday, you may find that if you have been living in a dream world, it suddenly catches up with you when Neptune turns Retrograde from now until November. Nebulous and dreamy Pisces Neptune loves dreams and delusions. And when Neptune goes "backwards" (as seen from the Earth), those dreams evaporate so that you see clearly. The downside can be that you realize you have been deluding yourself. But the upside is that you may now clearly see how your dreams have brought you to a place where you can turn them into reality.
SATURDAY June 8th 2013
On Saturday, ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns with his heavenly father Ra-Herakhte to form the GEMINI NEW MOON. In Antinous Moon Magic we call this the MOON OF MERCURY. The Gemini New Moon emphasizes the "mercurial" areas of communications, vivacity, commerce and trade. This is the perfect party night because the Gemini New Moon loves festive friends and fetes.
SUNDAY June 9th 2013
On Sunday, ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns with jubilant Jupiter in Gemini so that all the tensions and headaches of the previous week melt away like ice in the sunshine.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between June 10th and 16th when we come to the VIRGO FIRST QUARTER MOON which we call the MELANCHOLY MOON in Antinous Moon Magic. It is what the French call "larmoyance" — a lovely word which rolls off your tongue so languidly. It describes a lack of joy, a vague feeling that life is not what it should be. It is Peggy Lee singing that minor-key ballad "Is That All There Is?" This moon signals those areas of your life where things are not going well and you have a right to sing the blues. But it also signals those moments when we wallow in self-sorrow and almost enjoy brow-beatingaourselves — for no good reason. Don't suppress this sadness, but don't wallow in it. Instead, savor it for a moment and discern what your gay spiritual heart is trying to tell you. More details next time ....
