JULY 18th to 28th, 2013
THURSDAY July 18th 2013
On Thursday a historic celestial event occurs — the ANTINOUS GRAND TRINE —a three-way trine aspect involving lucky Jupiter, intuitive Neptune and practical Saturn. This equidistant three-way aspect occurs only once in every several centuries. Mars also gets into the act by aligning in conjunction with Jupiter. This historic aspect provides you with a once-in-a-lifetime chance to make Neptunian dreams come true through Saturnian planning, Jovian good fortune and Martian gumption — go for it!
FRIDAY July 19th 2013
On Friday the historic three-way trine aspect involving lucky Jupiter, intuitive Neptune and practical Saturn continues to empower you. Adding fuel to the fire is a trine between impulsive Uranus and ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD which helps you to make the changes you need to activate your plans.
SATURDAY July 20th 2013
On Saturday three weeks of computer glitches, postal delays and travel detours come to an end when Mercury ends its Retrograde period and begins moving forward again. Now you can sign on the dotted line of those contracts you have been waiting for, and make major expenditures. You will finally sell that car you have had on the market for three weeks with no firm buyers.
SUNDAY July 21st 2013
On Sunday sparks will fly when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns with Pluto in Capricorn and also gets into tense aspects to Uranus and Mercury. You will feel drawn into deep discussions of profound issues which could well lead to tears and the slamming of doors.
MONDAY July 22nd 2013
"When the Moon is in the Seventh House ... and Jupiter aligns with Mars" is how that old Hippie era song about the Dawning of the Age of Aquarius starts out. Well, luck is in the air on Monday when Jupiter aligns with Mars ... and the Sun enters its home base in sunny Leo in time for the AQUARIUS FULL MOON. This is the summertime moon of generous gifts which we associate with Antinous/Vertumnus, the shape-shifting God of summertime bounty and generous gifts. We call this the DONUM MOON when magical rituals are performed for fortuitous gifts. Go outside tonight and look up at the full moon, with shooting stars cascading from all sides. This is the Full Moon to wake up and break free of all mental, spiritual, political and ideological strictures. It is the gift of an opportunity. The PERSEID METEORS which reach their peak at this time of year) are symbolically aimed at you. Antinous is aiming his gifts of new opportunity directly your way. All you have to do is reach out and grasp it — and it's yours.
TUESDAY THROUGH FRIDAY July 23rd to 26th 2013
Even astrologers are taken aback by what what occurs on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and most of Friday — You can forget about getting any work done when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD goes VOID OF COURSE on and off for a whopping 55 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/SUNDAY July 27th/28th 2013
On Saturday you can expect a busy day catching up on work that piled up over the past week when the Moon is in hot aspects to Jupiter, Mars, Pluto and the Sun as well as Uranus. You should get as much work done as possible because on Sunday ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD goes VOID OF COURSE for 26 hours — in a repeat of the incredible VOC hiatus this past week. Remember the rule of thumb: Nothing particularly bad will happen during a Void Moon — but nothing particularly good will happen either — in fact, nothing much will happen at all.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between July 29th and August 4th when the long-awaited ANTINOUS GRAND HEXAGRAM occurs — a rare paradigm-shifting alignment of six major planets which will not occur again for centuries. More details next time ....
