MARCH 26 to APRIL 5 2015
THURSDAY/FRIDAY MARCH 26/27, 2015
Overnight Thursday/Friday we come to the Cancer First Quarter Moon. It is the Lunar Phase of reflection and insight which we call the NARCISSUS MOON in Antinous Moon Magic ... Narcissus is the Spirit which tunes out all distractions and all other people in order to focus on the Divinity within. This Lunar Phase is the Spirit of Self-Love and Same-Sex Love. It is forever gazing into its own reflection and whispering to itself: You are Divine! The reflection and the viewer are one and the same. The Spirit of Narcissus is the Divinity which holds a mirror up to ourselves. self-confidence pairs with the need for security when the Sun forms a productive trine aspect with Saturn. Go ahead: Take your own destiny in your own hands.
SATURDAY/SUNDAY MARCH 28/29, 2015
This weekend is perfect for partying when sensual Taurus Venus forms a 90-degree right angle to exaggeration-prone Jupiter. This is a recipe for over-eating, drinking too much, and generally overdoing everything ... such as spending too much money during shopping excursions. The bad news is that this is awful for your waistline and your liver. The good news is that it is a lot of fun.
MONDAY MARCH 30, 2015
On Monday the work week starts on a power-filled note when Venus forms a trine aspect with Pluto which energizes and empowers you to attain new heights.
TUESDAY MARCH 31, 2015
On Tuesday Mercury leaves dreamy Pisces and soars into fiery Aries for a brief two weeks. As Mercury transitions from peaceful Pisces to bold and brash Aries, our minds and our words will get less poetic and more action-oriented. Aries is a Fire sign known for being impulsive, so be careful what you say! Comments might come out of your mouth before they're fully formed, giving them a tinge of sarcasm or even an edge of insult — whether you intend them to or not. And even if we think we know the full impact of our words, there's the danger that we haven't thought far enough ahead about the effect they'll have on those we care about.
WEDNESDAY APRIL 1, 2015
On Wednesday Mars the planet of action will enter Taurus and remain there until May 12. When the God of War meets the sign of the Bull, things can plod along slowly and move at a snail's pace. While it may seem like slow going, it is a wonderful time to tackle those projects that need endurance and stamina. Mars is all about action, ambition, impulse and drive. The planet Mars was named for the ancient Roman God of War. When channeled improperly Mars energy can lead to excessive anger, violence and war. However, when used constructively this energy can invoke passion, motivation and determination. Now consider the energy of Taurus. The Bull is a stubborn and territorial animal; large and capable of aggression when provoked. While it may seem like slow going, it is a wonderful time to tackle those projects that need endurance and stamina. So putting the forces of Mars and the sign of the Bull together is a little bit like having an irresistible force meet an immovable object. Mars wants to go, go, go and Taurus wants to stubbornly remain still. Things will seem like they are at a standoff during this period. However that doesn’t mean you won't get things accomplished.
THURSDAY APRIL 2, 2015
On Thursday we come to the luckiest day of the week when Mercury forms a fortuitous trine aspect with Saturn even as the Sun trines lucky Jupiter. This is the sort of day that the Latin expression "Carpe Diem" (Seize the Day) was created for. Be sure to buy a lottery ticket ... and be sure to share the winnings with everybody around you.
FRIDAY APRIL 3, 2015
On Friday you will want to put on your dancing shoes when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms energetic aspects to Saturn and Mercury. This is one time when Good Friday is not a day for mourning but rather a day for partying.
SATURDAY APRIL 4, 2015
On Saturday we come to the "Pink Moon" (or "Blood Moon") &mdash a spectacular Lunar Eclipse which will be visible from North America across the Pacific to New Zealand and Australia as well as parts of Asia ... With the Sun in Aries and the Moon in Libra, this is the Libra Full Moon ... the lunar cycle we call the ORATOR MOON of diplomacy and balanced thinking. This is the perfect time for fulfilling dreams of finding just the right partner, the person who balances out your needs and desires perfectly. But remember that diplomacy is the key. Each Lunar Phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the Orator Moon is the embodiment of articulate expression in all forms and in all media, whether spoken, written or visual.
SUNDAY APRIL 5, 2015
On Sunday batten down the hatches because storms and earthquakes are in store when the Sun forms a 90-degree right angle with Pluto — a configuration which happens twice a year and which invariably spawns strife, conflict, warfare and even bad weather. The good news is that this configuration lasts only about 48 hours.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between April 6 and 12 when we come to the Capricorn Third Quarter Moon which, in Antinous Moon Magic, we call the HADRIAN'S WALL MOON of stubborn intransigence and immovable barriers. Each Lunar Phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the Hadrian's Wall Lunar Phase is the embodiment of hindrances and blockages. It represents the barriers that stand in your way. It is all barriers and obstacles to progress. Meditations and rituals conducted on this night are best suited for focusing on blockages in your life, situations and issues which prevent you from moving forward. These can be manifested by persons or situations around you. But most often, we find during meditations on this night that we have erected prison walls around ourselves, we are blocking ourselves from the freedom we so earnestly desire. This Lunar Phase is saying it is time to break out! .... More details next time ....
