SEPTEMBER 4 to 14, 2014
THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 4, 2014
Mercury has exited fastidious Virgo and has winged his way into laid-back Libra ... where he will sit back and chill and lounge around to Trance music from now until September 28th. Depending on your own star sign, Libra Mercury may cause you some difficulty making decisions and getting work done and generally finding your way through the highways and byways of life. Libra Mercury gets a bad reputation for being lazy, indecisive, two-faced and a downright liar. But it's not true! Well, actually, it IS a bit true ... but also not true ... both true and not true at the same time.
And that is exactly how Libra Mercury sees everything ... he sees both sides to every question ... he sees two people (or two nations) arguing and he sees that both sides are partly right ... and both sides are also partly wrong.
Libra Mercury helps to give you a balanced view of the world. He enhances your skills at mediating a compromise which is beneficial to both sides ... and beneficial to you. Libra Mercury loves harmony and balance so much that he tries to please everybody. So you may find yourself tacitly agreeing with people on both sides of an argument. That infuriates both sides, of course, and both sides accuse you of being two-faced.
In fact, you may not have agreed with either side. You wanted to tell both sides to take a hike. You only nodded in tacit agreement just to shut them up and avert open conflict. The result is that you end up being caught in the middle ... a plight that Sun Sign Librans know all too well.
So the down side of Libra Mercury is that decision-making is more difficult. You look at a restaurant menu and it ALL looks so good that you can't make up your mind ... again, a plight that Sun Sign Librans know all too well.
But the up side of Libra Mercury is that you are open to new experiences ... you pick a menu item you have never eaten before ... and it turns out to be delicious. You are driving along your regular route home from work and suddenly turn off down another street you have never explored before ... and you discover places which turn out to be wonderful.
As for being lazy ... that is also partly false ... and yet also partly true. Libra Mercury is very industrious when it comes to something that is interesting, pleasant or lovely. So you may find yourself beavering away at some fabulous project with your mind and soul concentrated solely on that fab project.
Meanwhile, boring and tedious tasks fall by the wayside. You may conveniently "forget" to do things which are uninteresting to you. Mercury Libra is the artistic genius who creates the most exquisitely inspiring art ... and yet who lives in absolute squalor and filth. Art is intensely interesting to him ... but housekeeping is intensely boring, so he "forgets" to do any house cleaning. Sun Sign Librans are experts at "forgetting" unpleasant or uninteresting things.
FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 5, 2014
On Friday you can start making plans for a weekend party when Venus enters Virgo — Virgo Venus is the ultimate party organizer. Just avoid the Virgo Venus tendency to over-analyze and to offer "advice" (which is to say "criticism") where it is not wanted. Virgo Venus also likes to worry and fret and feel inadequate. Instead, play up the Virgo Venus panache at being the hostess with the mostest and plying your guests with food and drink and ensuring they are having a fabulous time.
SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 6, 2014
On Saturday the party atmosphere shifts into high gear when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms a lively trine with laid-back Libra Mercury and is in opposition to exaggeration-prone Jupiter. This is a recipe for stylish over-consumption of food and drink and the good life in general.
SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 7, 2014
On Sunday the morning-after hangover sets in when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms an anything-goes sextile with Uranus while also squaring off against sour Saturn and angry Mars. It's a thoroughly annoying sort of day when you just want to draw the curtains, take two aspirin and go back to bed.
MONDAY/TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 8-9, 2014
Overnight Monday/Tuesday we come to the Pisces Full Moon ... In heterosexual astrology, the Pisces Full Moon is just a moon of sensual spiritual energy. But in Antinous Gay Moon Magic, this is the HOMOTHEOSIS MOON ... the archetype of gay sexuality ... when your sexual dreams can come true ... This hot Full Moon tells you it may be time to take your relationship to a whole new level ... This lunar phase helps you to deepen your love relationships in meaningful ways, making constructive compromises which allow each partner freedom while strengthening the bonds which unite you both.
WEDNESDAY SEPTEMBER 10, 2014
On Wednesday watch out for arguments and strife when Mercury squares off against stubborn Capricorn Pluto. Despite the fact that Mercury is in diplomatic Libra, it will be difficult to find common ground with adversaries and perceived adversaries. Don't forget that Libra Mercury can be very cunning and manipulative! The fact that Venus is in opposition to Neptune does not help matters since they cloud the issue with emotional fantasies.
THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 11, 2014
On Thursday you can forget about getting any work done when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD goes VOID OF COURSE for 24 hours for all time zones around the world — causing delays, rescheduling, lost messages and missed opportunities. Remember we always say you should think of ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD as your favorite rock or pop star giving a concert. The VOC MOON is the break between sets. The singer goes back stage for a costume change and psychs themselves up for the next set. Meanwhile, the audience is waiting impatiently out front while video projections and doo-wah girls fill the interlude. That's what a VOID OF COURSE MOON feels like. Nothing much will happen during this VOC period — nothing bad, but nothing good either, just nothing. But on the plus side, a VOC is perfect for meditation, dream-scaping and contacting the spirit world.
FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 12, 2014
On Friday the work week ends on a mellow note when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms positive configurations with Neptune, Venus and Pluto which allow you to clear your desk and put on your dancing shoes to go clubbing.
SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 13, 2014
On Saturday Mars leaves his native Scorpio to start a brand-new adventure in the sign of wanderlust: Sagittarius. For the next six weeks, the Martian energy will help you to discover new vistas in your love and sex life. You may even go somewhere you've never been before! This is one of best times of the year to be incredibly open-minded and experimental — just as the Sagittarian energy would have it. Sadge is also a very athletic sign, so you might find that your libido is strong enough that you don’t even need to hit the gym.
If you're usually shy about asking your partner for what you want in bed, this is a wonderful opportunity to explore, because he or she is likely to be just as curious as you are. If you or your lover are Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) you'll feel this influence even more. Watch out, you could be too hot to handle.
This is also an excellent time to have sex in new places, as Sagittarian energy is all about traveling. A sexy weekend getaway with your lover could be just the thing to spark your love life between mid-September and late October. Take advantage of this passionate phase and get out of town. Just note that you may end up spending the entire weekend in your hotel room!
SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 14, 2014
On Sunday it's a good day for love and friendship — after you get past an initial bit of irritation when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in tense aspects to Mars and Neptune. Once you kiss and make up, however, Venus forms a nice trine with Neptune to make the "making up" really, really nice.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between September 15 and 21 when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD squares off against the Sun and Mercury but then aligns in conjunction with exaggeration-prone Jupiter. This is the GEMINI THIRD QUARTER MOON which in Antinous Moon Magic is called the CONSOLATION MOON because it is the Lunar Archetypal energy of serendipity and fortuitous misadventures. You win the Silver Medal (but not the Gold). You win $20 in the lottery (but not the jackpot of $20 million). It is about finding a $50 bill in an old wallet ... More details next time ....
