APRIL 30 to MAY 10 2015
THURS/FRI APRIL 30 MAY 1, 2015
Overnight Thursday/Friday mental clarity shines bright and clear once again when Mercury leaves plodding Taurus and sweeps into Gemini — Mercury's astrological home sign. This shift dramatically improves communications for the next two months. And since Mercury also watches over commerce, the coming eight weeks will also be an ideal time for financial and career decisions. Normally, Mercury visits any given sign for just three or four weeks, but this year MERCURY GOES RETROGRADE to extend its stay in its home sign of Gemini for two months.
SATURDAY MAY 2, 2015
On Saturday you will be in a chatty mood for online romance, news and gossip thanks to Gemini Mercury and also thanks to ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forming electrifying aspects with impulsive Uranus and love planet Venus.
SUNDAY/MONDAY MAY 3/4, 2015
Overnight Sunday/Monday we come to the Scorpio Full Moon ... a moon for penetrating the veil of lies and illusion and seeing clearly who are your friends (and who are not) and also seeing yourself for what you are. For that reason, we call it the ENEMY MOON in Antinous Moon Magic.
TUESDAY/WEDNESDAY MAY 5/6, 2015
On Tuesday and Wednesday we all ride a rollercoaster of highs and lows when the Sun squares off against Jupiter (Tuesday) and then forms a trine aspect to Pluto (Wednesday). The Sun/Jupiter configuration is a classic recipe for exaggeration, over-exuberance, over-confidence and generally overdoing everything and going to extremes. Then on Wednesday you come down to Earth when the Sun/Pluto configuration reminds you that practical hard work is necessary to achieve your goals ... but that you CAN definitely achieve them if you take steady steps towards success.
THURSDAY/FRIDAY MAY 7/8, 2015
Overnight Thursday/Friday, Venus leaves nervous Gemini (where Venus never feels entirely comfortable) and enters cozy Cancer. Venus is very much at home in Cancer, creating a spirit of emotional home-and-hearth sentimentalism. Even if you are the sort of gay person who has never taken the idea of "marriage" and "family" seriously before, don't be surprised if you now think of settling down and setting up housekeeping with that certain special someone. That may mean merely sharing a house or apartment together. Or it may mean planning a gay wedding and possibly even adopting or siring children. For the past month, Gemini Venus expressed love and money through words. Now Cancer Venus will express love and money emotionally.
SATURDAY/SUNDAY MAY 9/10, 2015
The weekend is not really conducive for socializing or doing household chores because logical Gemini Mercury is at right angles to dreamy Neptune even as ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in strong configurations with Uranus, Mars, Saturn and Mercury. The result is that you end up chatting away on WhatsApp all weekend. But beware of misunderstandings with your online friends which flare up into arguments and then dissipate in laughter.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between May 11 and 17 when the Moon squares off against the Sun for the Aquarius Third Quarter Moon which in Antinous Moon Magic we call the FORUM MOON. This is the best Lunar Phase of the year for oracles or spell work involving interaction with groups or a public setting. Gathering place. Club. Work place. Any place where numerous people gather. It is also the best moon for rituals focusing on parks, gardens and the outdoors in general, such as working rituals for protecting a back garden or outdoor venue .... More details next time ....
