JULY 9 to 20, 2014
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.
MONDAY JULY 14, 2014
On Monday, a rollicking week with numerous major sign changes gets off to a bang when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD engages in powerful configurations with Uranus, Mars, Venus and Saturn. So much will be happening that you may have a hard time concentrating on small details. Watch out for careless little errors.
TUESDAY JULY 15, 2014
On Tuesday, be sure to pay attention to your intuition when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms positive aspects with Mercury (mental powers) and Neptune (intuitive powers). A song on the radio or a slogan on an advertising poster may open your mind to a solution to a problem that has been plaguing you for the longest time.
WEDNESDAY JULY 16, 2014
On Wednesday, one of the major astrological events of the year occurs when the planet Jupiter enters the Leo Zodiac sign. For the next 12 months, lots of good things are to be expected. Jupiter is the planet of luck and opportunity. It moves slowly through the Zodiac, spending 12 months in each sign, so it takes 12 years for it to return to Leo. Remember where you were and what you were doing in 2002 to get an idea of the flavor of this coming 12 months.
For the past year, Jupiter was in Cancer, the sign of family, coziness and domestic affairs. But Jupiter Leo will put the spotlight on getting out on stage, front and center, and putting on a good show. Jupiter Leo is the ultimate Drama Queen. While Jupiter was in Cancer many people kept relationships together as a top priority but Jupiter in Leo may encourage the opposite — love affairs. Of course, if your marriage or relationship is sound this will not pose a problem.
Jupiter in Leo will bring a certain amount of fun into our lives and people may be more interested in socializing. Leo is ruled by the Sun, which represents our vital core. If you were born under the sign of Leo, you can expect the next 12 months to be a banner year.
Jupiter is at home in a fire sign (Jupiter is ruled by Sagittarius) and fire sign Leo will encourage self-expression for the performing arts and it should be a good year for movies, TV and any of the arts. Entertainment in general will become more important as well fun. Leo holds the potential to be around or connect with flamboyant and charismatic people. The downside of Leo is often a need for attention.
If you were born with Jupiter in Leo you are the type of individual who likes to energy and a big life force. You are probably a snappy dresser. You often have a feeling of neediness to draw attention or always be the center of attention — in other words, you are a Drama Queen — and the coming 12 months will be your chance to dominate the spotlight.
THURSDAY JULY 17, 2014
On Thursday, be careful what you say when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD squares off against both Mercury and Venus while forming an exaggeration-prone configuration with Jupiter. This is a recipe for misunderstandings. People don't just jump to conclusions — they take a flying leap and end up hanging on a precarious ledge.
FRIDAY JULY 18, 2014
On Friday, Venus leaves nervous Gemini (where Venus never feels entirely comfortable) and enters cozy Cancer. Venus is very much at home in Cancer, creating a spirit of emotional home-and-hearth sentimentalism. Even if you are the sort of gay person who has never taken the idea of "marriage" and "family" seriously before, don't be surprised if you now think of settling down and setting up housekeeping with that certain special someone. That may mean merely sharing a house or apartment together. Or it may mean planning a gay wedding and possibly even adopting or siring children. For the past month, Gemini Venus expressed love and money through words. Now Cancer Venus will express love and money emotionally.
SATURDAY JULY 19, 2014
Overnight Friday/Saturday, 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 ... This lunar phase is particularly powerful this year because it occurs precisely when the Sun and Mars are in a 90-degree square right angle to each other. 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.
SUNDAY JULY 20, 2014
On Sunday, Saturn ends its Retrograde phase and begins going forward again for the first time since March 2. If there has been a logjam in your life for the past five months, it should break up now. Because Saturn is in Scorpio, secrets will be exposed now. Saturn will remain in Scorpio until December 23, promising renewal and rebirth in time for the Solstice to those who are sincerely attending to the lessons and learning. You have a choice as to who you are intimate with, partner with, borrow from, and owe. Choose wisely and take responsibility for what you choose, how you act and your behaviors.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between July 21 and 27 when we come to the Leo New Moon. That is the lunar phase we call the SACERDOTE MOON which spiritually kick-starts your life ... Take time to reflect on becoming who you were born to be ... Rather than focusing on a specific task, go to the center of your heart and meditate on the core strength of your soul ... Perhaps you are here to bring beauty, whether through art, justice, or fashion ... Perhaps you are here to help heal the offering of the world, whether through your writing, activism, or as a physician ... Or maybe you are here to bring insight and truth where there is confusion and ignorance.... More details next time ....
