OCTOBER 3rd to 13th, 2013
THURSDAY OCTOBER 3rd 2013
On Thursday tensions run high when our old friends Uranus and Pluto square off at right angles — again — as they have several times in recent months. Revolutions and economic chaos have been the result. This week, however, Uranus/Pluto have embroiled the Sun in their clash. On the personal level, this configuration puts the spotlight on personal relationships. On the one hand, Uranus is urging you to break free of all restrictions. But on the other hand, Pluto warns you to stand fast and not make any hasty moves, but instead to dig in your heels for the long haul. This results in massive feelings of guilt and fear — fear of what might happen either way. Become aware of where this fear is coming from (from guilt) and you can find a constructive way to appese both Uranus and Pluto without wrecking your relationship.
FRIDAY/SATURDAY OCTOBER 4th/5th 2013
Overnight Friday/Saturday the moon joins the Uranus/Pluto fray when it aligns with the Sun for the LIBRA NEW MOON ... the Lunar Phase we call the TRIPOD MOON in Antinous Moon Magic in honor of the clouds of incense with which three-footed incense braziers filled the Ancient Temples of Antinous. The clouds of incense created a sacred other-worldly atmosphere of intoxication and purification ... but made rational decision-making difficult. If you are having trouble "seeing the fog", the Libra New Moon will show you where the confusion lies.
SUNDAY OCTOBER 6th 2013
On Sunday the turmoil of recent days settles a bit when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms positive configurations with ambitious Mars and inspirational Neptune. You perceive ways to improve things around you and you feel determined to do something.
MONDAY OCTOBER 7th 2013
On Monday Venus soars into jovial Sagittarius, leaving behind the murky moodiness of Scorpio for another year. Sagittarius Venus is supremely optimistic and eager to give everybody the benefit of the doubt when it comes to trust in matters of love. This is in stark contrast to wary suspicions which abounded when Venus was in Scorpio. From now until December 5th, Sadge Venus encourages you to give love a chance.
TUESDAY OCTOBER 8th 2013
On Tuesday you feel enabled to express your love in a distinctly no-nonsense manner when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns with exuberant Sagittarius Venus and Mercury aligns with profoundly intense Scorpio Saturn.
WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 9th 2013
On Wednesday your sense of optimism gets a much-needed boost when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms a positive trine with spontaneous Uranus and a fortuitous sextile with the Sun.
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.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between October 14th and 20th when 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. More details next time ....
