AUGUST 15th to 25th, 2013
THURSDAY August 15th 2013
On Thursday your mind will be bursting with brilliant ideas when Mercury and the moon form a fine trines with the "Eureka" planet Uranus. Pay attention to hunches and "coincidental" tips — an advertising jingle or lyrics on the car radio may give you a brilliant idea.
FRIDAY August 16th 2013
On Friday Venus leaves guilt-tripping Virgo and enters lovely laid-back Libra for a month. As this new cycle takes hold in your life, romance and social interaction take on a greater importance for you. Harmonious ties to others are what you yearn for; refinement and elegance are what you seek. The ideal partnership, the perfect balance, the highest standards of truth and beauty — these are some of the things that quicken your pulse now.
SATURDAY August 17th 2013
On Saturday a rather down-to-earth, nuts-and-bolts kind of weekend is heralded by tense aspects between ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD and Libra Venus and also with Neptune, Saturn and Pluto. It is the sort of weekend best suited for clearing out the garage and sorting and disposing of old junk ... the sort of weekend when a boring chore like polishing copper pots actually seems fulfilling.
SUNDAY August 18th 2013
On Sunday ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in unproductive aspects to Jupiter, Uranus and Mars — one word is all it takes to start a major argument. Just saying ....
MONDAY August 19th 2013
On Monday you will have a hard time keeping your mind on work when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms a romantic trine with love planet Venus and squares off against stubborn Saturn. Your thoughts revolve around love and romance, while work piles up on your desk.
TUESDAY August 20th 2013
On Tuesday beware of false promises and things which sound too good to be true. ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in opposition to boasting Leo Mercury, meaning that ego-driven people end up promising more than they can deliver.
WEDNESDAY August 21st 2013
On Wednesday lucky Jupiter and unpredictable Uranus form a powerful anything-goes aspect to each other in time for the Full Moon. There are two Aquarius Full Moons in succession this year, which makes the second one August 21st the ANTINOUS SUMMER BLUE MOON ... and it coincides with the Sacred Lion Hunt when Hadrian and Antinous slew a man-eating lion in Egypt. This is the extra special ANTINOUS DREAM MOON for making extra big wishes ... dare to think big!
THURSDAY August 22nd 2013
On Thursday ANTINOUS SUMMER BLUE MOON forms a generous trine to lucky Jupiter and a sextile to anything-goes Uranus ... this brings good fortune your way ... but only if you are willing to do something daring. Remember what the Romans said: "audica favet fortuna" ... fortune favors the audacious.
FRIDAY August 23rd 2013
Overnight Thursday/Friday the Sun leaves sunny Leo and enters worry-wort Virgo ... and later Friday Mercury joins the Sun in Virgo ... where they both shine a spotlight on every perceived fault and blemish. For the next four weeks, a lot of energy will be spent on worrying about the little things and trying to fix things that may not actually require fixing. But if there IS something that needs analyzing and fixing, then Virgo Sun and Mercury will focus in on it. Hey! How about a style make-over? A health check-up? Or at least clear up the clutter in your work space.
SATURDAY August 24th 2013
On Saturday the Sun and Mercury both in conscientious Virgo mean this is a weekend to tackle those tedious chores around the house that have been piling up for weeks. Virgo Sun and Mercury love to roll up their sleeves and scrub away every germ in every nook and cranny. The down side is that you may feel slightly overwhelmed by the task at hand ... Virgo loves to feel inadequate ... and loves to worry.
SUNDAY August 25th 2013
On Sunday you may want to avoid those picky neighbors of yours when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in a tense aspect to Mars and in persnickety aspects to Virgo Sun and Virgo Mercury. A tiny detail could lead to harsh words on both sides of the garden fence.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between August 26th and September 1st when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD squares off against the Sun and Mercury but then aligns in conjunction with exaggeration-prone Jupiter. This is the GEMINI THIRD QUARTER MOON which in Antinous Moon Magic is called the CONSOLATION MOON because it is the Lunar Archetypal energy of serendipity and fortuitous misadventures. You win the Silver Medal (but not the Gold). You win $20 in the lottery (but not the jackpot of $20 million). It is about finding a $50 bill in an old wallet. More details next time ....
