NOVEMBER 7 to 17, 2013
THURSDAY NOVEMBER 7th 2013
On Thursday Jupiter stops and turns around and goes retrograde, or "backwards" as seen from the Earth, from now until March 6th, 2014. When Jupiter turns retrograde, the action of Jupiter is reversed so that the emphasis is upon inner awareness and inner growth. It is an excellent time to get in touch with personal integrity. Jupiter rules role playing in order evoke a positive external reaction. You will find yourself dealing with phoniness in both yourself and others. When Jupiter is retrograde, you should evaluate how you are not being honest with yourself because you are playing a role that is disloyal to your true self. When opportunities arise while Jupiter is retrograde, they are the result of seeds planted in the past from people met or connections made in the past.
FRIDAY/SATURDAY NOVEMBER 8th/9th 2013
Overnight Friday/Saturday the Sun and Moon are at right angles for the AQUARIUS FIRST QUARTER MOON which Antinous Moon Magic is called the CONCORDIA MOON of good will and good teamwork. This helps to ensure that you can count on good teamwork at work or at play during the coming week. This will be a good weekend for mending fences, making agreements or getting together with old friends.
SUNDAY NOVEMBER 10th 2013
On Sunday the bad news is that the Moon is in a square aspect to the Sun and Saturn, causing unnecessary annoyance. But the good news is that Mercury ends its three-week-long Retrograde phase and starts moving forward again. When you go to work on Monday you will find parcels and emails which had been in spam filter limbo for three weeks ... and you can sign contracts and make travel plans and major expenditures without having it all backfire on you.
MONDAY NOVEMBER 11th 2013
On Monday your mind and your heart are in harmony when Mercury forms a trine with intuitive Neptune while ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms positive configurations with Mercury, Neptune, Venus and Pluto. Listen to your heart. Your mind will follow.
TUESDAY NOVEMBER 12th 2013
On Tuesday you might want to remember to buy a lottery ticket (or two) when the Sun forms a fortuitous trine with lucky Jupiter.
WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 13th 2013
On Wednesday the clouds roll in when Neptune goes Direct. Nebulous Neptune ... the planet of illusion and confusion ... has been retrograde since June 4, which has required us to get real for the last five months. Neptune is the dreamy planet, which at its best makes us see beyond the tangible world and explore spirituality, faith and fantasy. The dark side of Neptune is that its love of illusion can inspire us to escape to alternate realities we have created for ourselves ... a.k.a. delusions. So yes, with Neptune moving direct it can once again encourage us to live in denial. We all have specific fears and hangups we don’t want to deal with ... perhaps you ignore nagging financial issues or tell yourself that your less-than-satisfying romantic relationship is exactly what you need. Chances are, Neptune is behind any excuses you invent to support these ideas. The good news about Neptune Direct is that overt expressions of idealism, compassion, imagination and spirituality come more easily with Neptune's forward turn. Dreams held silently in our hearts may slowly rise to the surface where we can take steps to turn them into reality.
THURSDAY NOVEMBER 14th 2013
On Thursday your energy levels get a power boost when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns in conjunction with anything-goes Uranus. However, you may have a short fuse on your temper when the Moon squares off against Pluto and exaggeration-prone Jupiter.
FRIDAY NOVEMBER 15th 2013
On Friday you won't be able to get away from work fast enough and hit the clubs when Venus aligns with Capricorn Pluto and both form a 90-degree right angle to Uranus. The Pluto-Uranus Square has been causing turmoil off and on for many months. Venus adds a volatile emotional depth to the mixture. On the one hand, Pluto demands loyalty and obedience. On the other hand, Uranus insists on independence and throwing the rule book out the window. For love goddess Venus, this is like driving with one foot on the brake and the other on the accelerator. Fasten your seat belt and hang on.
SATURDAY NOVEMBER 16th 2013
On Saturday you may want to avoid your pesky neighbors with their chronic complaints about your gardening skills (or lack of which) when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in tense aspects with Mercury, Saturn, Pluto and Venus. Such configurations only exacerbate petty annoyances.
SUNDAY NOVEMBER 17th 2013
On Sunday we come to the TAURUS FULL MOON. That is the lunar phase which, in Antinous Moon Magic, is called the HADRIAN's VILLA MOON. This is a way for Antinous the Gay God to help you find your spiritual home, the celestial palace you have made for yourself. This Moon is aimed at helping you focus and center your spiritual heart.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between November 18th and 24th when we come to the Virgo Third Quarter Moon, which brings down powerful healing energies. In Antinous Moon Magic we call this the AESCULAPIUS MOON in honor of the Classical god of the physician's art. Meditation and rituals carried out tonight are ideal for bringing down healing energies for yourself and those you love.. More details next time ....
