FEB. 18 to MARCH 1, 2015
WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY FEB. 18/19, 2015
Overnight Wednesday/Thursday we come to the extraordinary Super Moon which is amazing for several reasons. It is unusually close to the Earth, which can result in unusually high tides and flooding. It is also the second AQUARIUS NEW MOON in succession which we call the WINTER BLUE MOON . Only moments after the New Moon occurs in Aquarius, the Sun/Move both move into Pisces. In the Sabian Symbolist system, this extraordinary Aquarius/Pisces New Moon is described thusly: "Deeply rooted in the past of a very ancient culture, a spiritual brotherhood in which many individual minds are merged into the glowing light of a unanimous consciousness is revealed to one who has emerged successfully from his or her metamorphosis."
Tonight's New Moon also just happens to be CHINESE NEW YEAR — YEAR OF THE WOOD SHEEP. The Sheep is lucky number eight in the Chinese Zodiac and wood is a stabilizing element. This combination signifies a year of peace and tranquility.
FRIDAY FEBRUARY 20, 2015
On Friday both Mars and Venus exit Pisces and enter Aries, which is a double-edged sword because Mars loves war (Aries) and Venus loves love (Pisces). This is the first of three rendezvous by Venus and Mars in 2015 and you can be sure that sexual encounters Friday night will be hot and steamy.
SATURDAY FEBRUARY 21, 2015
On Saturday it's time to roll up your sleeves and do some early spring cleaning (or autumn cleaning if you live in the Southern Hemisphere) when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms industrious aspects with Mars, Saturn, Mercury and Uranus.
SUNDAY FEBRUARY 22, 2015
On Sunday you may as well stay in bed and enjoy the dreamworld of social media when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD goes VOID OF COURSE for 24 hours — causing delays, rescheduling, lost messages and missed opportunities.
MONDAY FEBRUARY 23, 2015
On Monday problems arise out of no where when the Sun squares off against Saturn, as it does twice a year. Saturn is the cosmic teacher, focusing the rays of the intuitive Pisces Sun on problems in your life which need to be corrected ... and giving you insights to solutions to those problems.
TUESDAY FEBRUARY 24, 2015
On Tuesday love planet Venus forms a sexy trine aspect with steadfast Saturn to show you which relationships in your life have long-term possibilities, and which friends will be by your side for the long run.
WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 25, 2015
On Wednesday we come to the Gemini First Quarter moon ... the lunar phase we call the JACKAL MOON in Antinous Moon Magic. Each Lunar Phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the Jackal in Antinous oracular arts is the embodiment of cunning and skill and sleight-of-hand and being slightly dodgy and sneaky but also being incredibly adept and learned in the ways of the world. The Gemini First Quarter Moon is the March moon of the Trickster, who taunts and teases, who plays tricks, who leads the soul through dark and treacherous passages ... who is more treacherous than any Underworld foe ... but whose cunning enables him to bring his charges to their goal. Meditations and rituals carried out tonight are best suited for looking beyond the the veil of lies and deceit that others (or we ourselves) throw over our eyes to prevent us from seeing clearly. This is also a very good night for finding canny and cunning solutions to difficult problems ... strategies for out-smarting those who seek to pull the wool over our eyes.
THURSDAY FEBRUARY 26, 2015
On Thursday the Sun has its annual rendezvous with intuitive Neptune. It is as if a theatrical stage spotlight is fitted with a greenish filter which casts a dreamy light onto the stage which bathes everything in watery pastel greens. This can make it difficult for you to make important decisions. But it can also help you to look deeper into your heart to help you make those decisions on a deeply intuitive basis.
FRIDAY FEBRUARY 27, 2015
On Friday ambitious Mars forms a positive trine aspect with industrious Saturn to give you the drive you need to push forward projects which have been stalled in recent weeks. It's now or never. Trust Mars to give you the determination. Trust Saturn to give you the cautious determination.
SATURDAY FEBRUARY 28, 2015
On Saturday a rather restless weekend gets underway when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD engages in tense aspects to Mars, Neptune, Venus, Uranus and Pluto. You may find yourself being swayed or influenced by other people's emotional outbursts. Weigh your options carefully and try not to permit yourself to get swept away by others.
SUNDAY MARCH 1, 2015
On Sunday you may want to break loose and go off alone on some impromptu adventure when Mercury forms a sextile aspect with Uranus and also goes into opposition to exaggeration-prone Jupiter. If you are stuck at home with family or people you would rather avoid, this can create intolerable tensions and the desire to walk out and jump in the car and speed away. But if you have the day to yourself, this creates the perfect atmosphere for doing something new and different without anyone holding you back.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between March 2 and 8 when you may find yourself feeling a bit guilty, a bit self-critical, a bit inadequate. That's the Virgo Full Moon ... but in Antinous Moon Magic, this is the DIANA MOON ... the moon of sisterhood, of kindred spirits in whom you can confide ... and a "sister" need not be blood related ... or even female ... you have a "sister" and tonight's full moon helps you find her .... More details next time ....
