OCTOBER 9 to 19, 2014
THURSDAY OCTOBER 9, 2014
On Thursday pay special attention to your dreams (and even to your daydreams) when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in opposition to incisive Scorpio Mercury and also in a dream-inducing sextile with Neptune.
FRIDAY OCTOBER 10, 2014
On Friday Retrograde Mercury slips "backwards" out of Scorpio and re-enters Libra, which it left only days ago. This is a good opportunity to "go back" and smooth ruffled feathers and make amends with Libran diplomacy ... after having said some unkind things while Mercury was in naughty Scorpio.
SATURDAY OCTOBER 11, 2014
On Saturday you may turn down the wrong street and enter the wrong door of the wrong club ... and find Mr. Right waiting for you. That is because the most unusual twists of luck can occur when the Sun forms a lucky sextile aspect with Jupiter even as Venus is in opposition with surprised-filled Uranus. This is all part of an ongoing cosmic configuration called a GRAND CARDINAL KITE which is a trapezoidal configuration involving the Sun, Uranus, Venus, Jupiter and Mars ... splayed out across the Zodiac like the spar braces of a kite. This kite formation unleashes generally fortuitous energies which help us collectively to soar aloft from earthly problems — and helps you on a personal level to soar above your petty everyday problems, giving you the elevation and altitude to see solutions to those problems from another angle ... and possibly find Mr. Right.
SUNDAY OCTOBER 12, 2014
On Sunday you (and Mr. Right from last night) will be looking for fun and adventure when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD joins in the kite-flying fun of the GRAND CARDINAL KITE configuration by squaring off against Neptune and making positive aspect to Venus and Uranus. And if you did not find Mr. Right last night ... maybe you will tonight.
MONDAY OCTOBER 13, 2014
On Monday one of the most powerful and power-filled weeks of the year gets off to a marvelous start whenANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms joyous aspects with the Jupiter, the Sun and Mercury before going opposite Mars to keep your energies level all day.
TUESDAY OCTOBER 14, 2014
Tuesday is one of the two or three most fortuitous days for love and romance when lovely laid-back Libra Venus forms a sexy sextile aspect with lucky Leo Jupiter. This aspect, which occurs only twice a year, enhances not only your chances of falling in love with someone, but also enhances your ability to love and appreciate yourself more. You sense intuitively the things ... and the people ... that fill you with joy and that are good for you.
WEDNESDAY OCTOBER 15, 2014
On Wednesday the Earth will shake and conflicts will rumble around the globe ... and throughout your own household ... when the Sun forms a powerful sextile aspect with Mars even as ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is at right angles to the Sun. This is the Cancer Third Quarter Moon, which is the "Discordia Moon" in Antinous Moon Magic ... The goddess Discordia can be a powerful friend ... or deadly foe. Many gay men have assertiveness problems. On a gay spiritual level, the Discordia Moon shines its light on problem areas where you need to stand up and assert yourself. Anger is one of the most cathartic emotions, and it can also be a very effective cleanser of the emotional system. However, when it becomes a habit, it actually loses its power to transform and becomes an obstacle to growth. Meditations and rituals during the Discordia Moon can help you in identifying the role anger plays in your life and restoring it to its proper function so that it can bring new energy and expansiveness to your emotional life.
THURSDAY OCTOBER 16, 2014
On Thursday your brain is ablaze with often confusing and conflicting ideas when Retrograde Mercury aligns with the Sun. Old astrology texts dating back to Ancient Rome call this a potentially hazardous time, and speak of a "Scorched Mercury" which impairs communications and judgment. But in ANTINOUS MOON MAGIC, we see that very differently. This Sun/Mercury conjunction is indeed intense, but in a positive way. Antinous/Mercury focuses the gay spiritual light of his heavenly father Ra-Herakhte right at you. Open your spiritual heart to the light and joy and permit it to burn away all doubt and all fear and trepidation. Most people live in spiritual darkness. They are like people who live in caves and are afraid of sunlight because it hurts their eyes. But should we shun the light and stay in the cave with them? Antinous/Mercury says it's safe to open your spiritual eyes — and spiritual heart — and become accustomed to the light.
FRIDAY OCTOBER 17, 2014
On Friday you find the words you are looking for to pursue both romantic and business goals when Mercury joins the Sun in a sextile aspect to Sagittarius Mars. Whether it is a request for a pay increase or a pick-up line in the clubs, you find just the right words for the occasion — and you have the chutzpah to go after your goal.
SATURDAY OCTOBER 18, 2014
On Saturday the Leo Moon squares off against incisive and stubborn Scorpio Saturn. If you find yourself up against an immovable force, the best thing to do is to accept the inevitable and quit while you're still ahead.
SUNDAY OCTOBER 19, 2014
On Sunday you wake up from incredibly vivid dreams and your whole day is spent in daydreams as ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD in 180-degree opposition to dreamy Neptune. Listen to your intuition. Pay attention to your dreams. They are trying to tell you something.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between October 20 and 26 when tensions reach a new climax during a Solar Eclipse of ill omen which coincides with the SCORPIO NEW MOON. In Antinous Moon Magic this lunar phase is called the ZELUS MOON of fear, angst and anxiety ... and using Antinous Moon Magic to triumph over fear. More details next time ....
