DECEMBER 4 to 14, 2014
THURSDAY DECEMBER 4, 2014
On Thursday you might want to purchase a lottery ticket when Venus is in a trine with lucky Jupiter even as the optimistic Sagittarius Sun forms a trine with winner-take-all Uranus. Not only is this Venus/Jupiter configuration good for making money, but it also greatly enhances chances of love and romance. So, go ahead — take a chance on love.
FRIDAY DECEMBER 5, 2014
On Friday Mars leaves stodgy Capricorn and enters rational, logical Aquarius — the Warrior Planet Mars becomes First Officer Spock! Aquarius Mars carries out his "battles" on a highly cerebral level. This is the nerd gamer who loves 3-D chess and role-playing games. Mars in Aquarius signals a time when emotions are sublimated as people engage in mind games. That is not a bad thing — as long as people don't get so caught up in the chatter of their brains that they forget to listen to their hearts.
SATURDAY DECEMBER 6, 2014
On Saturday we come to the December Full Moon ... The Gemini Full Moon is the CATAMITUS MOON in Antinous Moon Magic, the moon signaling where change will occur in your life during the coming year. This is a powerfully magical moon for working gay magical spells in the Gemini areas of friendships, finances and getting in contact with prospective lovers.
SUNDAY DECEMBER 7, 2014
Sunday is perfect for a brunch or other social gathering of friends when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms party-prone aspects to Jupiter and Venus.
MONDAY DECEMBER 8, 2014
On Monday the work week gets off to a great start as far as communications are concerned when the Sagittarius Sun aligns with Mercury. This is the best day of the week to make deals and sign agreements.
TUESDAY DECEMBER 9, 2014
On Tuesday Jupiter does a turnaround and goes Retrograde (backwards as seen from Earth) until April 8, 2015, ushering in four months of introspection and review. The downside is that you may feel you are spinning your wheels much of the time. But the good news is that Retrograde Jupiter extends its stay in upbeat Leo for most of that time — so that reviewing old ideas helps you come up with great new ideas during this Retrograde Jupiter phase. When Jupiter turns retrograde, the action of Jupiter is reversed so that the emphasis is upon inner awareness and inner growth. When opportunities arise while Jupiter is retrograde, they are the result of seeds planted in the past from people met or connections made in the past.
WEDNESDAY DECEMBER 10, 2014
On Wednesday Venus (love, sexual attraction, wealth) enters Capricorn (business, practicality, hard reality) and stays there until January 3, 2015. The goddess of love will have us reviewing and renewing many of our relationship commitments and obligations in very tangible and concrete ways. Venus in Capricorn knows the laws of sexuality in any given culture, and is skilled at bending those laws to their benefit. Capricorn wants to be the boss of itself (and possibly you) and generally goes it alone, which is an interesting modus operandi for the planet that tells us about how we do partnership. This trip through the sign of the Goat can teach us about boundaries within our unions. There's nothing sexier than someone who isn't desperate for our affections while still remaining open, transparent and available for intimacy and spontaneity. Venus in Capricorn can become a bit of a cautious ice queen if it starts to take itself, its work and its ambitions too seriously. Career can become the ultimate turn on, and social status the greatest romance when Capricorn gets out of balance. Venus in Capricorn can teach us how to be one of the most loyal and dedicated partners around.
THURSDAY DECEMBER 11, 2014
On Thursday the mood turns upbeat when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms positive trine aspects with Uranus, the Sun and Mercury for the start of what should be a fortuitous extended weekend of good fortune.
FRIDAY DECEMBER 12, 2014
On Friday the work week ends on a lucky note when Mercury forms a trine aspect to Jupiter. Your ideas are big and your intentions noble. You are excellent at seeing the big picture, drawing conclusions, problem solving, and making accurate observations. This is a great way to start what promises to be a great weekend.
SATURDAY/SUNDAY DEC. 13/14, 2014
This is the most fortuitous weekend of the year for healing what ails you when the optimistic Sagittarius Sun forms a beneficent trine aspect with lucky Jupiter even as Venus and Neptune are in a dreamy sextile aspect to one another. In addition, we come to the we come to the Virgo Third Quarter Moon, which brings down powerful healing energies. In Antinous Moon Magic we call this the AESCULAPIUS MOON in honor of the Classical god of the physician's art. Meditation and rituals carried out tonight are ideal for bringing down healing energies for yourself and those you love.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between December 15 and 21 when when we come to the Solstice New Moon ... the Capricorn New Moon ... the lunar phase which in Antinous Moon Magic is called the LAMIA MOON of dark magic. Meditation and rituals conducted tonight are best suited for rooting out malaise and sickness and for diminishing evil sendings. Look for areas in your life where you may be detrimental to yourself, may be working against yourself or may be making yourself sick, perhaps literally so .... More details next time ....
