JAN. 29 to FEB. 8, 2015
THURSDAY JANUARY 29, 2015
On Thursday you'll certainly want to run the other way when your partner wants to sit down and discuss relationship issues. That's because love goddess Venus is in a 90-degree right-angle square to stubborn Saturn, and the Moon is also in tense aspects to both of them. Venus-square-Saturn means that relationship discussions are fraught with stumbling blocks. And because Venus and Saturn also have a play in money and business, you can expect problems in that area as well.
FRIDAY JANUARY 30, 2015
On Friday 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.
SAT./SUN. JAN. 31 FEB. 1, 2015
This is one of the most romantic weekends of the year because love goddess Venus and emotionally deep Neptune align in conjunction in dreamy Pisces. Passion and compassion are the bywords — but watch out for over-indulgence in Neptunian party drugs and alcohol.
MONDAY FEBRUARY 2, 2015
On Monday the work week gets off to a lively start when the Aquarius Sun forms a positive sextile aspect with inventive Uranus. Your mind will be brimming with creative ideas and new solutions for stubborn old problems.
TUESDAY/WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 3/4, 2015
Overnight Tuesday/Wednesday we come to the lunar phase we call the LION HUNT MOON, the LEO FULL MOON. It is a reminder that Antinous slew a man-eating lion in Egypt. Antinous peered out into the barren wilderness with all its deep and hidden dangers. He charged forth, his bridle-reins in one hand and an adamantine-tipped spear in the other, and he faced the beast unafraid. For Antinous knew he would triumph over death. The Spirit of the Lion Hunt is the bravery of Antinous the Lion Slayer.
THURSDAY FEBRUARY 5, 2015
On Thursday you find exactly the right words for that important email, post or tweet when Aquarius Mercury forms a positive sextile aspect with precise Saturn.
FRIDAY FEBRUARY 6, 2015
On Friday the Sun is in direct opposition to Jupiter, causing a sense of over-exuberance, over-exaggeration and over-exertion in all areas. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing ... but the coming weeks will show whether you bit off more than you can handle.
SATURDAY/SUNDAY FEBRUARY 7/8, 2015
This weekend is perfect for making new friendships, renewing old friendships or strengthening friendships that may be on wobbly legs when Pisces Venus forms a sexy sextile aspect with Capricorn Pluto. This aspect works just as well for boosting financial and commercial enterprises.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between February 9 and 15 when when we come to the the Scorpio Third Quarter Moon. This is the Lunar Phase in Antinous Moon Magic which we call the PERDITION MOON of coming to terms with loss and diminishment. Meditations and rituals carried out during this Lunar Phase are best suited for seeking to come to terms with loss and finding areas in your life where you may unconsciously be causing yourself loss or sadness. This Lunar Phase is NOT about giving in to loss and grief, but rather it is about moving through them to find new ways towards growth and fulfillment .... More details next time ....
