AUGUST 8th to 18th, 2013
THURSDAY August 8th 2013
On Thursday there is good news and some less good news when Jupiter and Mars are in 180-degree opposition to Pluto and Mercury enters me-firsty Leo. The good news is that you have the feeling you can do anything and it will come out right. The less good news is that you may be over-exaggerating your abilities. But then ... nothing ventured, nothing gained.
FRIDAY August 9th 2013
On Friday the work week ends on an energetic note when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms nice sextiles with Jupiter and Mars, which have been in near-conjunction with each other for more than a week. Financial and business matters get taken care of and you clear off your desk for the weekend in nothing flat ... and leave work feeling ready to sow a wild oat (or two) ....
SATURDAY August 10th 2013
On Saturday the perfect weekend for shopping takes shape when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns with money-conscious Mercury and forms a sextile with style-conscious Venus. This is the perfect cosmic lineup for going into town and meeting friends at the mall.
SUNDAY August 11th 2013
On Sunday Mercury squares off against stubborn Saturn while ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in tense aspects to Pluto, Jupiter and Uranus. This creates a day when you long for harmony on the one hand, but you tend to speak your mind without the slightest hesitation on the other hand. Take our advice and try to avoid topics you know will only lead to arguments.
MONDAY August 12th 2013
On Monday the work week gets off to a nervous and jittery start when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in a tension-filled aspect to Mars. Everyone around you seems to be on edge, and nothing seems to work right, and the more you try to force things to work right, the more frustrated you get.
TUESDAY August 13th 2013
On Tuesday you can clear the air with some well-chosen words that get right to the quick of the matter when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD squares off against Mercury but forms positive aspects to intuitive Neptune, staunch Saturn and profound Pluto. Tempers may flare briefly, but they will settle down again quickly once the dust settles.
WEDNESDAY August 14th 2013
On Wednesday ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is at right angles with the Sun for the SCORPIO FIRST QUARTER MOON, the lunar phase we associate with PROMETHEUS the DIVINE THIEF — this is the night to get in touch with your Inner Thief — the ability to take what we need without asking in advance. It is about getting back what is rightfully ours by means of cunning and skulduggery, and using your skills to help others. We are all thieves, only the dishonest ones deny it.
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 ....
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
