DEC. 24 to JAN. 4, 2015
WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY DEC. 24-25, 2014
This Yuletide there's no time for holiday sentimentality when serious-minded Capricorn Mercury aligns with Pluto and both are in a tight, 90-degree right angle to rebellious Aries Uranus. Tempers will flare and voices will be raised and tears will be shed. If you are planning to spend the Yuletide with blood relatives you can expect old resentments and old grudges to boil over into brand new rage issues. A "home alone" option might mean much less wear and tear on your emotions.
FRIDAY DECEMBER 26, 2014
On Friday the Yuletide tensions begin to ease when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD leaves a stressful aspect to Saturn and forms more pleasant aspects to the Sun and dreamy Neptune. It is a good day for chilling — a bottle of champagne, preferably.
SATURDAY DECEMBER 27, 2014
On Saturday the Capricorn Sun forms a dreamy sextile aspect to intuitive Neptune, inviting you to reflect introspectively about the old year and start dreaming about the new year. This is the perfect evening for oracle games, scrying, dreamscaping and fortune-telling.
SUNDAY DECEMBER 28, 2014
On Sunday we come to the Aries First Quarter Moon, which is the Lunar Phase we call the INVICTUS MOON ,,, the Antinous Moon Magic spirit of Mithras ... because this lunar phase always occurs in December or January near the Solstice Birthday of Mithras ... Invictus is the bold light that shines forth from a gay man's eyes to illuminate those around him. It is the warmth of your every being ... It is the optimism which brightens a dismal day when things are going wrong. Invictus is indomitable, unbeatable, unconquerable ... It is a determined spirit which never admits defeat, never gives up, never quits ... Invictus is a beacon which dispels darkness and casts out shadows ... In Antinous Moon Magic, tonight is an ideal time for meditation and rituals aimed at illuminating opaque situations or questions ... It is well-suited for planning assertive, goal-oriented action aimed at whole-heartedly positive results.
MONDAY DECEMBER 29, 2014
On Monday the last work week of the year gets off to a somewhat stormy start when Mars and Jupiter are both in tense aspects to Pluto and Mercury. You set a full agenda for yourself and get very annoyed at anything that gets in your way.
TUESDAY/WEDNESDAY DEC. 30/31, 2014
On the last two days of the year the planetary configurations favor quiet reflection and meditation on the past year as ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD embraces Venus and also forms positive aspects to the Sun and Pluto.
THURSDAY JANUARY 1, 2015
On New Year's Day Mars and Jupiter set the tone for 2015 when they shift into opposition to one another. Mars in free-spirited Aquarius and Jupiter in beamish Leo constitute a very profound omen for the coming year. On the one hand, this configuration empowers people to achieve their goals in life, to make a better life for themselves and to fulfill their destiny. On the other hand, unfortunately, this configuration encourages some people to pursue their selfish goals at the expensive of everyone around them. This is a recipe for wars of aggression ... as well as for battles for justice and equality.
FRIDAY JANUARY 2, 2015
On Friday you can forget about getting any work done when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD goes VOID OF COURSE for most of the day — 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, dreamscaping and contacting the spirit world.
SATURDAY JANUARY 3, 2015
On Saturday, we come to one of the two most tense days of the year ... when the Sun forms a 90-degree square angle to Uranus. This happens twice a year. It is a cosmic signal for you to break free from restrictions which have prevented you from moving forward. The good news is that strange and wacky and unexpected things can happen. The bad news is that ... well ... strange and wacky and unexpected things can happen. But, as the Divine Hadrian knew, astrology is a tool for anticipating upcoming influences. Instead of worrying about a "bad surprise", you should ask your Unconscious mind (or your Magical Self if you are a Gay Wizard) to ensure that the upcoming "surprise" is of a pleasant nature rather than an unpleasant nature. That is, after all, the purpose of astrology.
SUNDAY JANUARY 4, 2015
On Sunday, we come to the Cancer Full Moon It is the lunar phase we call the LUNUS MOON in Antinous Moon Magic — the Moon of Moons! This is a Full Moon which brings out powerful emotions ... Because this Full Moon always occurs during December/January, it is emotional farewell to the old year and heart-felt welcoming of the new year ... You will shed sentimental tears for loved ones you have lost during the past year, not to mention a job or other things you may have lost ... Tonight's Lunus Moon is a propitious time for meditations and rituals delving into your emotional state of being, and also for intuitive or clairvoyant trances.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between January 5 and 11 when we come to the Libra Third Quarter Moon. This is the lunar phase we call the CROSSROADS MOON in Antinous Moon Magic ... It is symbolized by the "Herme", the ithyphallic stele of Mercury which guarded intersections of Roman roads ... Tonight is a propitious time for setting a new course, possibly changing course, setting out in a new direction. It is about making a decision. The key is not to worry about which choice to make. The key is to make a choice and go ahead with it .... More details next time ....
