FEBRUARY 13 to 23, 2014
THURSDAY FEBRUARY 13th 2014
On Thursday you can count on pleasant surprises when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms a trine with Uranus. You feel optimistic and upbeat and the little annoyances around you don't bother you.
FRIDAY FEBRUARY 14th 2014
Valentine's Day on Friday may be a bit downbeat when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD squares off against dour Saturn. You may not hear from the person you wanted to hear from. On the other hand, you can reckon on hearing from someone who truly and very deeply loves you.
SATURDAY FEBRUARY 15th 2014
Overnight Friday/Saturday we come to the lunar phase we call the LION HUNT MOON, the LEO FULL MOON. It is a reminder that Antinous slew a man-eating lion in Egypt. Antinous peered out into the barren wilderness with all its deep and hidden dangers. He charged forth, his bridle-reins in one hand and an adamantine-tipped spear in the other, and he faced the beast unafraid. For Antinous knew he would triumph over death. The Spirit of the Lion Hunt is the bravery of Antinous the Lion Slayer. To underscore the theme of courage and self-confidence, the Sun is aligned with Mercury and both are in a valiant trine with War God Mars.
SUNDAY FEBRUARY 16th 2014
On Sunday self-confidence continues to be the theme for this weekend when Mercury and Mars are in a trine while ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in positive configurations with Jupiter, Pluto and Venus. The Venus aspect enables you to build up the courage you need to approach that someone special.
MONDAY FEBRUARY 17th 2014
On Monday the new work week gets off to a diligent start when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms a productive sextile with Saturn. Your work your way through your tasks efficiently and even the most boring chores seem at least tolerably interesting.
TUESDAY FEBRUARY 18th 2014
On Tuesday the atmosphere changes dramatically when the Sun leaves inquisitive Aquarius and plunges into deeply intuitive Pisces for the next few weeks. Traditionally, this coincides with a period of fasting in many cultures. But when we speak of "fasting" in Antinous Moon Magic, we don't mean starving yourself for four weeks. Instead, this should be a time of becoming intuitively conscious of what you imbibe or consume. It is a time of conscious awareness of yourself as a spiritual entity. HOMOTHEOSIS ... Gay-Man-Godliness-Becoming-The-Same.
WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 19th 2014
On Wednesday you get a possibly harsh reality check when Retrograde Mercury backs up into a 90-degree square angle to Saturn — just three weeks after having squared Saturn. Bad things come in threes: Mercury and Saturn will be at right angles again on March 11. This is a test of your patience. Think of a teacher handing back essays to pupils and criticizing everyone harshly for not doing well enough. The teacher is overly harsh. The pupils respond by being rebellious. Saturn is the teacher. Mercury is the pupil. Just remember that there is a little bit of both Saturn and Mercury inside you — so try to be aware of how you respond to this astrological test.
THURSDAY FEBRUARY 20th 2014
On Thursday you should be sure to pay attention to dreams (including daydreams) when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms trine with the Sun and later with dreamy Neptune. This combo occurs only twice a year, so tune in to your inner self.
FRIDAY FEBRUARY 21st 2014
On Friday you will be able to clear away all work from your desk in a flash when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD engages in positive configurations with Jupiter, Pluto, Venus and Saturn while squaring off against Retrograde Mercury. The planets invite you to get your work done early and enjoy an upbeat evening.
SATURDAY FEBRUARY 22nd 2014
On Saturday ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is at right angles to the Sun. This is the SAGITTARIUS THIRD QUARTER MOON, which we call the SACRED STAR phase in Antinous Moon Magic. In the midst of confusion and chaos, the Spirit of the Star touches the top of your head and conveys sudden and total clarity. This Spirit is never deceived by appearances. Meditations and rituals conducted during this lunar phase are ideal for discerning clarity in opaque situations, for clearing the mind of nebulous distractions and for seeing clearly into other worlds ... the perfect night for clairvoyancy.
SUNDAY FEBRUARY 23rd 2014
Sunday is the perfect for dreamscaping ... consciously shaping your dreams ... when the Sun aligns in perfect conjunction with Neptune in dreamy Pisces. The Sun/Neptune alignment occurs only once a year, and rarely in the intuitive sign of Pisces. Combined with ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD, this is the perfect night for clairvoyancy.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between February 24th and March 2nd when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns with the Sun for the gentle PISCES NEW MOON. In Antinous Moon Magic this is the lunar phase we call the DOG MOON of fidelity, friendship and faithfulness. The Spirit of the Dog Moon is loving and supportive friendship. This Spirit is loving and faithful, comforting you with familiarity when you see yourself reflected in this Spirit. It is the perfect combination of comfort and stimulus to grow and provides a wonderful companion that walks with you through life, helping you define and refine who you are and who you choose to be every day.... More details next time ....
