NOVEMBER 13 to 23, 2014
THURSDAY NOVEMBER 13, 2014
This is the most explosive week of the year when Mars aligns in conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn before squaring off against Uranus on Thursday — there might literally be explosions or at least volcanic eruptions when the warrior god teams up with the lord of the underworld and is at odds with unpredictable Uranus. Pent-up anger bursts out into all-out armed conflict. This is a classic textbook recipe for terrorist attacks. It definitely spells trouble for the world's hot spots such as the Mideast and the Ukraine. And it does not bode well for the Ebola outbreak either. On the personal level, you need to be on guard for outbursts of rage. The important thing is to be aware where your rage is coming from. Don't vent your rage on innocent victims. Instead, be consciously aware of the source of your anger so that you can harness the powerful energies of Mars/Pluto/Uranus to carry out constructive projects you have been stalling on for way too long.
FRIDAY NOVEMBER 14, 2014
On Friday we come to the Leo Third Quarter Moon, which is called the BACCHANALIA MOON in Antinous Moon Magic for its gifts of transcendence ... This Lunar Phase reflects those festivals of peering into other worlds and states of being ... a restless time of high-spirited indulgence, sometimes fun, sometimes slightly scary and always capable of unleashing powerful spirits ... On a mundane level, it refers to putting on a disguise and "having a good time". On a spiritual level, it refers to entering an altered state to commune with the divine, thus this Lunar Phase is the best time of the year for trance visions.
SATURDAY NOVEMBER 15, 2014
On Saturday the fog bank rolls in when Neptune goes Direct. Nebulous Neptune ... the planet of illusion and confusion ... has been retrograde since June 9, which has required us to get real for the last five months. Neptune is the dreamy planet, which at its best makes us see beyond the tangible world and explore spirituality, faith and fantasy. The dark side of Neptune is that its love of illusion can inspire us to escape to alternate realities we've created for ourselves ... a.k.a. delusions. So yes, with Neptune moving direct it can once again encourage us to live in denial. We all have specific fears and hangups we don't want to deal with ... perhaps you ignore nagging financial issues or tell yourself that your less-than-satisfying romantic relationship is exactly what you need. Chances are, Neptune is behind any excuses you invent to support these ideas. The good news about Neptune Direct is that overt expressions of idealism, compassion, imagination and spirituality come more easily with Neptune's forward turn. Dreams held silently in our hearts may slowly rise to the surface where we can take steps to turn them into reality.
SUNDAY NOVEMBER 16, 2014
On Sunday Venus soars into jovial Sagittarius, leaving behind the murky moodiness of Scorpio for another year. Sagittarius Venus is supremely optimistic and eager to give everybody the benefit of the doubt when it comes to trust in matters of love. This is in stark contrast to wary suspicions which abounded when Venus was in Scorpio. From now until December 10th, Sadge Venus encourages you to give love a chance.
MONDAY/TUESDAY NOV. 17/18, 2014
Overnight Monday/Tuesday we come to our annual reality check when the Sun aligns with Saturn. This year's Sun/Saturn rendezvous is in the incisive sign of Scorpio, the Zodiac's bank vault of hidden secrets. So the Sun and Saturn serve as a high-power spotlight to illuminate every dark corner, every dirty secret, every sneaky subterfuge, every underhanded trick. It is the day when all the skeletons are hauled out of your closet and given a good and thorough dusting off ... and a style make-over if needed. Yes, that is the secret to coping with this Scorpio Sun/Saturn conjunction: Haul out all the other junk that has accumulated over the past year and toss out everything that is no longer useful ... and repair, refurbish and restyle the things in your life which can be useful to you in the coming 12 months ... until the Sun and Saturn meet up again.
WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 19, 2014
On Wednesday don't forget to buy a mid-week lottery ticket when ANTINOUS THE GAY GOD forms a fortuitous sextile aspect with lucky Jupiter. Remember what the Romans said: "audica favet fortuna" ... fortune favors the audacious.
THURSDAY NOVEMBER 20, 2014
On Thursday you see the world through rose-colored glasses when Venus forms a 90-degree square angle to Neptune. This is a good day for smooth-talking gigolos who pay fanciful compliments to you — and you find yourself actually believing them ... And why not? Is that such a bad thing? Why not enjoy the fantasy as long as it lasts ... and as long as you know it's a fantasy?
FRIDAY NOVEMBER 21, 2014
On Friday the work week culminates in the perfect day for a job interview or for a presentation of a special project. Mercury is in a good sextile to Mars to help you get your point across articulately and strongly to others.
SATURDAY NOVEMBER 22, 2014
On Saturday the Sun enters Sagittarius and only about 10 minutes later ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns in conjunction with his heavenly father Ra-Herakhte for the SAGITTARIUS NEW MOON. In Antinous Moon Magic, this is the lunar phase we call the FORTUNA MOON. This is the classic good luck moon of the astrological year.
SUNDAY NOVEMBER 23, 2014
On Sunday beware of online websites that promote gross exaggerations or promises that sound too good to be true — because most likely they aren't true. That's because Mercury and Jupiter are at right angles on Sunday.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between November 24 and 30 when Mercury leaves spooky Scorpio and wings his way into cheerful Sagittarius in time for Thanksgiving in the US and when we come to the Pisces First Quarter Moon. In Antinous Moon Magic this is the "Consortium Moon" of partnership, commitment and belonging ... it is symbolized by the wedding ring ... Because it always occurs towards the end of the year, the Consortium Moon represents the cyclical nature of the year, the ending of one year and the beginning of a new year ... Tonight is a beneficent night for meditation or rituals concerning relationships and all things that are bound by a circle of togetherness ... In health matters, it refers to blood and the circulatory system ... This is the Lunar phase of the Circle of Life, the inter-connectedness of all things .... More details next time ....
