JANUARY 1 to 12, 2014
WEDNESDAY JANUARY 1st 2014
New Year's Eve fireworks will skyrocket through 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 are especially tense because on New Year's Day both the Sun and the Moon pass by Pluto (which is wrestling with Uranus) 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.
MONDAY JANUARY 6th 2014
On Monday a sheer mountain of work has piled up on your desk when you arrive for work — but you will roll up your sleeves when Mercury forms a productive sextile with Saturn. And after work you will shift into a 12th Night partying mood when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms gently positive aspects with Mercury, Saturn and Venus.
TUESDAY JANUARY 7th 2014
It is a scientific fact that many couples break up after the Yuletide holidays — but that couples who make it through January tend to stick together all year. On Tuesday Mercury aligns with Venus to put the right words into your mouth to make sure that your sweetie signs on for another year.
WEDNESDAY JANUARY 8th 2014
On Wednesday watch out for information overload when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is at right angles to Capricorn Mercury. You run the risk of drowning in a sea of facts and figures.
THURSDAY JANUARY 9th 2014
On Thursday the first big astrological challenge of the New Year could throw you for a loop when war god Mars forms a 90-degree square angle with exaggeration-prone Retrograde Jupiter. This configuration makes you over-optimistic, over-eager and over-excited to prove yourself. You make New Year's resolutions you cannot possibly fulfill. You tell your boss you can handle a big project which far exceeds your capabilities. But there is a positive side to Mars-square-Jupiter. If you are chronically timid, this configuration helps you to throw caution to the winds and move forward on projects you otherwise would be too modest to attempt.
FRIDAY JANUARY 10th 2014
On Friday be sure to keep your eyes and ears open for an important bit of advice which will be beneficial to you during the coming year. ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms good aspects with Pluto, Jupiter, the Sun and Venus before going into opposition with the great teacher Saturn. You can expect Saturn to send you a message of advice ... possibly a verbal or visual message. But it could also be something you read by chance ... an advertisement you see on the way to work ... a voice on the car radio.
SATURDAY JANUARY 11th 2014
On Saturday it's time to take advantage of those Winter Clearance Sales and buy a new smartphone, tablet or other communications device when Mercury enters the tech-friendly and communications-conscious sign of Aquarius. This is the best time of year for communications technology upgrades from now until January 31st when Mercury enters dreamy Pisces and your mental faculties get a bit foggy.
SUNDAY JANUARY 12th 2014
On Sunday the weekend ends on a quietly romantic note when the Sun aligns in conjunction with love planet Venus and both are in a harmonious sextile to Saturn. Okay, the romance is muted and quiet because the Sun and Moon are both in Capricorn. But Scorpio Saturn probes the depths of some secret sexual yearnings.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between January 13th and 19th when we come to the Cancer Full Moon, which is the lunar phase we call the LUNUS MOON in Antinous Moon Magic — the Moon of Moons! This is a Full Moon which brings out powerful emotions. Because this Full Moon always occurs during December/January, it is emotional farewell to the old year and heart-felt welcoming of the new year. You will shed sentimental tears for loved ones you have lost during the past year, not to mention a job or other things you may have lost... More details next time ....
