APRIL 10 to 20, 2014
THURSDAY APRIL 10, 2014
Thursday is mostly a write-off when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD goes VOID OF COURSE for 16 hours — from early morning until late evening in the Americas and Europe. Saturn being the last planet the Moon encounters before going VOC, these 16 hours promise to be particularly dull and frustrating, a time when nothing seems to go right.
FRIDAY APRIL 11, 2014
On Friday things become less emotional and sentimental when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in opposition to loving Venus and romantic Neptune. Not the best night to go out looking for romance — but just wait until Saturday.
SATURDAY/SUNDAY APRIL 12/13, 2014
It will be an emotionally charged weekend for you when Venus aligns in conjunction with dreamy Neptune. Passion and compassion are the bywords — but watch out for over-indulgence in Neptunian party drugs and alcohol.
MONDAY APRIL 14, 2014
On Monday a paradigm shift occurs for the year 2014 when Pluto planet of transformation and regeneration does an about-face and goes "backward" as seen from Earth ... Retrograde ... from now until September 23, 2014. Pluto's powers of regeneration are far greater when Retrograde. We feel pressured to eliminate and release the old, outworn, outdated and obsolete in our lives. We are urged to let go of attitudes, thinking or communication patterns, security drives, rigid emotions; a time to undergo an internal form of house cleaning. It is a good time to research into our own Souls in order to determine exactly what we do or do not need. Because Pluto retrograde imparts an intense power for investigation, we should use this time to assess what reoccurring patterns in our lives make us feel out of control, where and why do we continually give our power away, and under what circumstances do we react so defensively that we elicit attacks from others. Remember: You may not be in control of the circumstances around you ... but you are always in control of how you respond to them.
TUESDAY APRIL 15, 2014
On Tuesday we come to the first Lunar Eclipse of the year 2014. It is the first Total Eclipse of the Moon in almost four years and the first to be visible in its entirety in North America since 2011. With the Sun in Aries and the Moon in Libra, this is the Libra Full Moon ... the lunar cycle we call the ORATOR MOON of diplomacy and balanced thinking. This is the perfect time for fulfilling dreams of finding just the right partner, the person who balances out your needs and desires perfectly. But remember that diplomacy is the key. Each Lunar Phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the Orator Moon is the embodiment of articulate expression in all forms and in all media, whether spoken, written or visual.
WEDNESDAY APRIL 16, 2014
On Wednesday telling the blunt and awful truth becomes not only an obligation but a pleasure (to misquote Oscar Wilde, Saint of Antinous), when Mercury is in 180-degree opposition to Mars. You will have good antennae for detecting lies and excuses, and an irresistible urge to tell people what you think of them. The down side is that they have the same urge to tell you what they think of you.
THURSDAY APRIL 17, 2014
On Thursday ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns in perfect conjunction with perfectionist Saturn. This is a great day for rolling up your sleeves and getting chores done.
FRIDAY APRIL 18, 2014
Friday night (date night) promises to be hot and romantic when love goddess Venus forms an exuberant trine with lucky Jupiter and a sexy sextile with Pluto.
SATURDAY APRIL 19, 2014
On Saturday the Sun leaves fiery Aries and settles into comfy Taurus for four weeks of couch-potato coziness. Meanwhile, ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD squares off against Venus but forms positive aspects with Mars and Mercury, making Saturday a good day for sprucing things up around the home.
SUNDAY APRIL 20, 2014
On the Christian holiday of Easter on Sunday the ongoing Jupiter/Pluto opposition underscores the theme of death and resurrection ... a theme which will be even more pronounced next week during a Cardinal Grand Cross.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between April 21 and 27 when the Moon squares off against the Sun for the Aquarius Third Quarter Moon which in Antinous Moon Magic we call the FORUM MOON. This is the best Lunar Phase of the year for oracles or spell work involving interaction with groups or a public setting. Gathering place. Club. Work place. Any place where numerous people gather. It is also the best moon for rituals focusing on parks, gardens and the outdoors in general, such as working rituals for protecting a back garden or outdoor venue .... More details next time ....
