OCT. 10th to 20th, 2013
THURSDAY OCTOBER 10th 2013
On Thursday you should brace for disappointment or at least confusion in love relationships when overly optimism Sagittarius Venus is at right angles to vague and dreamy Neptune. But not to worry too much: ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms positive aspects with both Neptune and assertive Mars to clear up doubts during the course of the day.
FRIDAY/SATURDAY OCTOBER 11th-12th 2013
Overnight Friday/Saturday the CAPRICORN FIRST QUARTER MOON occurs, giving you a blessed opportunity to reflect on business and career opportunities. In Antinous Moon Magic, we call this the MERCHANT MOON which offers you an opportunity to reap the benefits of your hard work — and find new opportunities for material advancement.
SUNDAY OCTOBER 13th 2013
On Sunday you might want to avoid discussions of deep and meaningful issues with your BFF because ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms adverse aspects to probing Saturn and suspicion-prone Scorpio Mercury. Any serious discussion is liable to turn into a bitch fight.
MONDAY OCTOBER 14th 2013
On Monday the work week gets off to a flying start when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms a beneficent trine with the Sun before going into opposition to Mars. You should be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed all day, though the Martian stress levels may be a bit much at times.
TUESDAY OCTOBER 15th 2013
On Tuesday Mars leaves me-firsty Leo and enters dutiful Virgo where the Martian ambition will be channeled into productive avenues from now until December 7th. That means some protracted disputes will seem to resolve themselves almost literally overnight.
WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 16th 2013
On Wednesday you may want to buy a mid-week lottery ticket when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms a fortuitous trine with lucky Jupiter. In general, it's a good day for getting things done effortlessly.
THURSDAY OCTOBER 17th 2013
On Thursday keep a sharp look-out on the romantic horizon when anything-goes Uranus is in a trine with ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD for a classic "love at first sight" scenario.
FRIDAY/SATURDAY OCTOBER 18th/19th 2013
Overnight Friday/Saturday a partial Lunar Eclipse during the ARIES FULL MOON reminds you that the calendar may say it is autumn, but you can still sow some wild oats! But be careful: In Antinous Moon Magic we call this the LIGHTNING MOON for the bolt of lightning which nearly killed Hadrian and Antinous atop Mount Cassius in autumn of the year 129 AD. The LIGHTNING MOON is the most impetuous and accident-prone moon of the year. Things are exacerbated by the Uranus/Pluto power struggle that has been going on for months. Uranus or Ouranus is the ancient God of the Heavens and Pluto/Hades is the Classical God of the Underworld. And they are now in conflict at right angles to each other. They have been moving into and out of this square aspect for months, and will continue to do so. The result is turmoil on all levels. Earthquakes, political and financial tremors, and even rumblings in your own personal life. The feverish rioting and bloodshed in the Mideast and the equally turbulent turmoil on global financial and economic markets are expressions of the clash of these two Gods.
SUNDAY OCTOBER 20th 2013
On Sunday you will want to watch out for hidden or secret enemies when Mars has a dangerous showdown with sneaky Neptune. The two mighty planets are in opposition to each other. So be wary of sneak-thieves and rivals. Remember, of course, that we are not only talking about human enemies, but also about alcohol, drugs and recklessness ... keep your eye on the road!.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between October 21st and 27th when we come to the Leo Third Quarter Moon, which is called the BACCHANALIA MOON in Antinous Moon Magic. This Lunar Phase usually occurs close to the ancient festivals of Samhain, Halloween, All Souls Day, Dia de los Muertos and All Saints Day. This Lunar Phase reflects those festivals of peering into other worlds and states of being. In magical rituals, oracles and meditations, the keywords for this Magical Lunar Phase are: Gaiety. Revelry. Joy. Fun. Frivolity. Partying. Playing. Acting. Performing. Dancing. Theater and the Arts. All the world is a stage ... There is no end to the performance and nobody actually dies for real. We just undergo a costume change and take on a new role. More details next time ....
