AUG. 22 to SEPT. 1, 2013
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.
MONDAY August 26th 2013
On Monday an usually creative and surprise-filled week gets kicked off when Mercur is in opposition to intuitive Neptune and love planet Venus is opposite impetuous Uranus. Be careful what you wish for in the way of love and romance — you just might get it! On the down side, there is a tendency all this week to misinterpret the romantic intentions of others — or to overlook someone's flirting attempts to get your attention.
TUESDAY August 27th 2013
On Tuesday the old cliché about not judging a book by its cover becomes the motto of the day when the critical Virgo Sun is in opposition to illusion-filled Neptune. It is easy to pull the wool over unsuspecting people's eyes. Be sure you have your eyes open.
WEDNESDAY August 28th 2013
On Wednesday 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.
THURSDAY August 29th 2013
On Thursday you can expect to feel electrified and socially adeot when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms positive aspects with spontaneous Uranus and with love planet Venus.
FRIDAY August 30th 2013
On Friday the work week ends on a note of efficiency when the dutiful Virgo Sun is in a productive trine with steady-as-you-go Saturn. Your might may wander from time to time as ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms a dreamy trine with Neptune — but pay attention to your daydreams because they may give you valuable insights into problem areas in your life.
SATURDAY August 31st 2013
On Saturday you wake up from rather scary dreams (Moon opposite Pluto) but the spectres of the night are banished very quickly when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns with lucky Jupiter to give this weekend a pleasant party atmosphere.
SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 1st 2013
On Sunday the weekend's party atmosphere reaches its peak when the Sun is in a positively profoud trine with Pluto that enables you to get down and dirty and show what is really inside of you ... deep ... down ... inside. This is a good day to grow beyond yourself ... shed your old shy image the way a snake sheds its skin ... and present your shining inner self to the world.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between September 2nd and 8th when we come to the Virgo New Moon. This is the lunar phase which, in Antinous Moon Magic, is called the PLOTINA MOON in honor of Emperor Trajan's wife, the Empress Plotina, who lobbied on Hadrian's behalf, ensuring he would be Hadrian's successor. The Spirit of the Plotina Moon is the Spirit of the Crone, the Wise Woman, the White Witch, the Great Mother Isis. But "she" is a Spirit Guide who transcends gender — she is the ancient gay wizard in your soul. More details next time ....
