DEC. 26 to JAN. 5, 2014
THURSDAY DECEMBER 26th 2013
On Thursday the Earth will quake (perhaps literally) when Mars and Uranus are in opposition. Mars in Libra bristles at convention and diplomacy. Uranus in Aries wants to create havoc just for the sake of change. On the global level, this configuration causes earthquakes, wars and revolutions. On the personal level, it is a recipe for family feuds. If you are home alone for Christmas, you should count yourself lucky because ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD puts the thumb screws on with tense aspects to Mars, Uranus, Pluto and Jupiter. Many astrologers have warned all year that this will be the most dreadful week of 2013. Normally, we refrain from alarmism, but we would caution you to be exceedingly careful ... choose your words carefully at family fest gatherings, drive carefully on the roads, be careful and vigilant in crowds. A very trusted astrologer friend of ours quite frankly says that people who are home alone for Christmas should count themselves lucky ... and keep a low profile until December 28th, when the configurations are more auspicious.
FRIDAY DECEMBER 27th 2013
On Friday there is no let-up in the tremors and reverberations which began on Christmas Day when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD squares off against Venus and forms a trine with unfocused Neptune. It will be difficult to concentrate on work and it will be especially difficult to tell if people around you are being truthful or deceitful. On the other hand, these configurations are advantageous for meditation and card readings and other year-end oracle work. Let your unfocused mind drift.
SATURDAY DECEMBER 28th 2013
On Saturday the worst of the week's stress and tension is over. The quakes and aftershocks are over. In fact, if you were unable to take part in Yule celebrations on December 25th, you can rest assured that Saturday will be a day far better suited for festivities than the 25th was. On Saturday ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in good configurations to Mercury, the Sun, Pluto and Jupiter, which is a nice Yuletide present for you, albeit belated.
SUNDAY DECEMBER 29th 2013
On Sunday the holiday hangover is over when Mercury aligns with the Sun in sober Capricorn to get you started with the post-Christmas clean-up and get you started organizing your calendar for 2014.
MONDAY DECEMBER 30th 2013
On Monday your best intentions for clearing up all the accumulated holiday work from your desk is thwarted constantly by interruptions and unpleasant surprises. Blame a 90-degree square angle between the Capricorn Sun and Aries Uranus.
TUESDAY DECEMBER 31st 2013
On New Year's Eve the fireworks will not be restricted to the sky — you can also expect explosive situations in your personal life when Mars squares off against Pluto and Mercury gets into the fray by aligning with Pluto, both of them at odds with the war god. Tensions on this New Year's Eve will be running especially hot because ....
WEDNESDAY JANUARY 1st 2014
... because overnight New Year's Day the Sun and Moon pass by Pluto on their way to form the Capricorn New Moon ... the lunar phase which in Antinous Moon Magic is called the LAMIA MOON of dark magic. Meditation and rituals conducted tonight are best suited for rooting out malaise and sickness and for diminishing evil sendings. Look for areas in your life where you may be detrimental to yourself, may be working against yourself or may be making yourself sick, perhaps literally so.
THURSDAY JANUARY 2nd 2014
On Thursday you will feel like getting together with friends and co-workers when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms positive aspects to industrial Saturn and convivial Venus. That is a good recipe for banishing the post-holiday blues.
FRIDAY JANUARY 3rd 2014
On Friday you might seriously want to consider taking the day off from work and hiding under the bed when the stubborn Capricorn Sun is at right angles to aggressive Mars and equally stubborn Capricorn Mercury is in 180-degree opposition to exaggeration-prone Jupiter. Tempers will flare as people dig in their heels for life-or-death arguments and disputes about even the most trivial matters.
SATURDAY JANUARY 4th 2014
On Saturday you can't blame anybody but yourself if weekend chores don't come off right. Well, you could blame ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD for forming a square aspect to Saturn before then moving on into a conjunction alignment with dreamy Neptune. Instead of clearing out old magazines and newspapers, you find yourself sitting down in a pile of them and reading old articles ... and getting no work done.
SUNDAY JANUARY 5th 2014
On Sunday your expectations exceed by far your realistic hopes of attaining those expectations when the Sun and Jupiter are in opposition to each other. This configuration occurs once a year and tends to put a damper on optimism ... for 24 hours ... until the Sun moves on. Just just wait a day. Your expectations will be more in tune with your capabilities in a day or so.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between January 6th and 12th when we come to the Aries First Quarter Moon. It is the Lunar Phase we call the INVICTUS MOON, the Antinous Moon Magic spirit of Mithras ... the Invictus Moon is a beacon which dispels darkness and casts out shadows. It illuminates all dark corners and puts light on the deepest and darkest secrets. It brings everything out into daylight and sends creatures of darkness scurrying for shelter .... More details next time ....
