APRIL 3 to 13, 2014
THURSDAY APRIL 3, 2014
On Thursday you will want to batten down the hatches ... when tensions run much higher than usual. Quite honestly, astrologers worldwide are not entirely sure what will transpire this week ... because the configurations are so rare that they have not occurred in centuries. We're talking about the "T"-Square configuration involving Jupiter, Uranus and Pluto which becomes exacerbated this week when the Sun aligns with Uranus in the fire sign Aries ruled by the war god Mars. This "T"-Square first caused trouble back in August 2013 but it is erupting with renewed force this week as Retrograde Mars and Saturn make things even worse.
Some astrologers are issuing dire warnings of war and natural catastrophes. But we feel it is more helpful to offer constructive advice. And the stars this week do, indeed, offer some constructive pointers.
Remember the old story about how the mighty oak tree is toppled by a storm which fails to break bamboo ... because bamboo bends and yields ... and survives the gale-force winds. The more flexible you are during these trying days and weeks to come, the better your chances are of not only coming through unharmed ... but also of thriving in the aftermath.
At the same time, seize new opportunities which emerge from the chaos. When the mighty oak tree collapses at your feet, gather up the acorns and store all that lovely oak for building and furnishing your new abode. Turn the potential for tragedy into a potential for triumph.
FRIDAY APRIL 4, 2014
On Friday, confidence returns when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD squares off against intuitive Neptune and is in positive sextile aspect to Uranus and the Sun. Of course, aftershocks from the inauspicious aspects from Thursday are still reverberating through the Cosmos, but the atmosphere brightens considerably and you begin to recognize that you have a wealth of capabilities and talents within yourself.
SATURDAY APRIL 5, 2014
On Saturday the weekend gets off to a passionate start when Venus leaves emotionally cold Aquarius for the romantic depths of Pisces. This sign change marks a major change not only in love but also in finances. Pisces Venus is not only loving and compassionate but also creative and generous. The motto for the next four weeks is: "Give, and you shall receive!"
SUNDAY APRIL 6, 2014
On Sunday we come to the Cancer First Quarter Moon. It is the Lunar Phase of reflection and insight which we call the NARCISSUS MOON in Antinous Moon Magic ... Narcissus is the Spirit which tunes out all distractions and all other people in order to focus on the Divinity within. This Lunar Phase is the Spirit of Self-Love and Same-Sex Love. It is forever gazing into its own reflection and whispering to itself: You are Divine! The reflection and the viewer are one and the same. The Spirit of Narcissus is the Divinity which holds a mirror up to ourselves.
MONDAY APRIL 7, 2014
On Monday Mercury leaves reflective Pisces and enters adventurous Aries for a whirlwind stay which will last only two weeks. Aries Mercury is impatient and eager to get started and fly off the handle — with no thought to the consequences. On the global level, this will be a two-week period when political leaders say and do rash things which later turn out disastrously. On the personal level, it means you should think before you blurt out something you will later regret. It also means you may start ambitious projects in a flurry of inspiration, but then lack the perseverance to carry them out. And when people blow up in anger around you, just remember that their anger will subside as quickly as it flared up.
TUESDAY APRIL 8, 2014
On Tuesday the Sun engages in its annual fight with Mars when both are in 180-degree opposition to each other. Being assertive and full of self-confidence is fine ... but on Tuesday many people will go out of their way to be over-assertive and over-confident. Be especially careful in road traffic. Watch out!
WEDNESDAY APRIL 9, 2014
Wednesday is the best day of the week when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in positive configurations with the Sun and Mars while forming a square aspect to Saturn. You will actually be eager to roll up your sleeves and get to work on annoying chores that need to be done ... and you will get them done.
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.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between April 14 and 20 when we come to 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 .... More details next time ....
