NOVEMBER 6 to 16, 2014
THURSDAY/FRIDAY NOV. 6/7, 2014
Overnight Thursday/Friday we come to the TAURUS FULL MOON. That is the lunar phase which, in Antinous Moon Magic, is called the HADRIAN's VILLA MOON. This is a way for Antinous the Gay God to help you find your spiritual home, the celestial palace you have made for yourself. This Moon is aimed at helping you focus and center your spiritual heart.
SATURDAY NOVEMBER 8, 2014
On Saturday Mercury re-enters Scorpio after having temporarily backed out of the sign of the scorpion in September during its Retrograde phase. After the light and diplomatic banter of Mercury in Libra, conversations deepen now as the communication planet moves into the fixed and secretive waters of Scorpio. Much of our mental processing will now be taking place behind-the-scenes, which could make business dealings a tad uncomfortable to say the least. You must become a very good face reader, strategist and psychic to really work this transit to your advantage. Mercury in Scorpio is all about getting to the bottom line and plummeting to the core of the truth. Our psyches are now more attuned to the hidden motives, agendas and ulterior motives of others.
We may also be looking for things that aren't there, just to protect ourselves. When Mercury is in Scorpio, our minds are more locked into the fear of loss and the need to keep that which we have under control — especially when money is involved. Scorpio is one of the most resourceful signs of the zodiac, but also on the defense when it comes to protecting what has been built through time and sustained efforts.
We're all more prone to feel like "don't mess with our money" during this phase, so now is not the time to spontaneously ask for a raise or bonus. It's better to use this influence to have the challenging conversations around money that require getting to the bottom of a very complex financial structure that needs deep and long-term change.
Now is the time to talk about all of those shadows and skeletons in the closet. They will be crawling out and rearing their head regardless, so why not work with them so they don’t work against you?
SUNDAY NOVEMBER 9, 2014
On Sunday indulgent Venus squares excessive Jupiter. If you are planning to go to an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast ... then you will pig out because it's easy to fall victim to temptation during this configuration. We need to be wary of overdoing it with rich food, intoxicating drinks and other "vices." It will be difficult switching gears and getting back to work. There's even a possibility we’ll forget responsibilities altogether. This isn't a good time to make luxury purchases. A sports car could require costly repair, a gourmet meal may be less than satisfying or an expensive outfit may be made with inferior materials. Wait another day to splurge. Getting good value for money will be very difficult under this configuration.
MONDAY-THURSDAY NOV. 10-13, 2014
This is the most explosive week of the year when Mars aligns in conjunction with Pluto in Capricorn overnight Monday/Tuesday before squaring off against Uranus on Wednesday — 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.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between November 17 and 23 when 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 we come to the .... More details next time ....
