JULY 3 to 13, 2014
THURSDAY JULY 3, 2014
On Thursday, discipline and obedience to rules are required when ANTINOUS THE GAY GOD forms productive aspects to both Pluto and Saturn.
FRIDAY JULY 4, 2014
On Friday there will be skyrockets galore — and not just because it is the 4th of July Independence Day holiday in the US. This is the one day a year when the Sun is in 180-degree opposition to Pluto. The good news is that Pluto is Retrograde, so its mischief is understated and undercover. But the bad news (for the USA) is that Pluto opposite the US Sun on the national birthday means trouble for major American corporations and institutions. For the rest of us around the word, this is a good day to stay well clear of US embassies, military bases and other potential terrorist targets. And in your personal life, of course, Friday is definitely not a good day to pick a fight with your lover — not if you don't want to be locked out of the apartment all weekend. And for everyone: Please drive carefully and vigilantly!
SATURDAY JULY 5, 2014
On Saturday, we come to the Libra First Quarter Moon, the beautiful moon of balance and equilibrium we call the VENUS MOON in Antinous Moon Magic ... This is Venus Genetrix, the Mother of Rome ... Rituals and meditations tonight are best suited for questions about your mother or your "inner mother" and also about finding flexible solutions to problems. The serpentine qualities of the "Snake Goddess Moon" offer insights into how to slither around or through seemingly impervious barriers in life.
SUNDAY JULY 6, 2014
On Sunday, you may want to invite friends over for an impromptu brunch when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD creates a party atmosphere thanks to positive aspects to Mars and Mercury. But watch out for over-indulgence and binge behavior when the Moon squares off to Jupiter.
MONDAY JULY 7, 2014
On Monday, it's love at first sight when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms positive aspects with Neptune and Pluto even as love planet Venus forms a sexy sextile with impetuous Uranus. You may meet a stranger who ordinarily would not be your type ... but who certainly appeals to you today.
TUESDAY JULY 8, 2014
On Tuesday, we come to one of the two most tense days of the year ... when the Sun forms a 90-degree square angle to Uranus. This happens twice a year. It is a cosmic signal for you to break free from restrictions which have prevented you from moving forward. The good news is that strange and wacky and unexpected things can happen. The bad news is that ... well ... strange and wacky and unexpected things can happen. But, as the Divine Hadrian knew, astrology is a tool for anticipating upcoming influences. Instead of worrying about a "bad surprise", you should ask your Unconscious mind (or your Magical Self if you are a Gay Wizard) to ensure that the upcoming "surprise" is of a pleasant nature rather than an unpleasant nature. That is, after all, the purpose of astrology.
WEDNESDAY JULY 9, 2014
On Wednesday, clarity and strength are abundant when the Sun forms crystal clear trine aspects with Saturn and the healer Chiron. These energies help you to make sense of the impetuous chaos which occurred on Tuesday. As always with Saturn-aspected days, this is not an "Unlucky Day" — not necessarily, anyway. Hadrian respected astrology as a tool to alert him to potential hazards. So if you remember to be especially wakeful and vigilant to details on Friday — then you will be rewarded when your boss congratulates you on having spotted a potentially fatal and costly error.
THURSDAY JULY 10, 2014
On Thursday, fasten your seat belt for a roller-coaster ride of emotional ups and downs when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD engages in some difficult configurations with Uranus Mars and Venus.
FRIDAY JULY 11, 2014
On Friday, this roller-coaster work week closes with the emphasis on freeing yourself from unnecessary burdens and restrictions. That has been the main focus of this week as the Sun has engaged in powerful aspects to Uranus (liberation) and Saturn (decisiveness) ... and now on Friday ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD moves into opposition to Mercury (mental processes) and into a sextile with Neptune (intuitive processes) to help you to understand the liberation you have undertaken.
SATURDAY JULY 12, 2014
On Saturday, we come to the Capricorn Full Moon, which is the lunar cycle we call the TOWER MOON in memory of the observatory tower which Emperor Hadrian built at his Villa to study the stars. This is the moon for reaching for the stars ... seeking job promotions ... stretching on tiptoes to grasp something previously unattainable.
SUNDAY JULY 13, 2014
On Sunday, Mercury finally leaves its home base of Gemini after an on-again, off-again stay of seven weeks, and enters emotion-oriented Cancer, so that your Conscious Mind will find itself engulfed in emotions for the next month. This is the time to give voice to your emotions.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between July 14 and 20 when Jupiter ends its 12-month stay in Cancer and shifts to Leo, where it will spend the next 12 months ... and also when we come to the Aries Third Quarter Moon, which is the lunar phase of the determined warrior we call the TRIBUNE MOON in Antinous Moon Magic ... If you are someone lacking in self-assertiveness, then Antinous the Moon God is sending assertiveness your way on his moonbeams tonight ... so that you can forge ahead in with determination and vigor ... The Tribune Moon is about confronting your fears ... above all, your fear of baring your true self to others. It is about turning your weaknesses into your strengths. It is about transforming destructive energies into constructive ones. It is about finding ... and fulfilling ... your destiny ... Meditations and rituals this night are best suited for finding ways to assert your will constructively ... for the benefit of yourself and for others.... More details next time ....
