APRIL 1 to 12 2015
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.
MONDAY APRIL 6, 2015
Monday kicks off a lucky week when Mercury and fortuitous Jupiter form a trine aspect even as the Sun aligns in conjunction with Uranus in fiery Aries. This is a day when surprises bring big monetary gains.
TUESDAY APRIL 7, 2015
Tuesday is romance day when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is in a high-energy configuration with love planet Venus.
WEDNESDAY APRIL 8, 2015
Wednesday is the best day of the week for brilliant new ideas when Mercury squares off against Pluto before aligning with Uranus in Aries.
THURSDAY APRIL 9, 2015
On Thursday you can jump for joy when Jupiter ends the long Retrograde phase it began on December 9, 2014, and turns Direct (forward as seen from Earth). The best thing is that your feelings of optimism will return. There will be a break from months of melancholy. Many things that have been delayed will start to move forward again in the days to come. If you've been planning a business, new project, or new anything it will be easier to get started now. Travel will be easier and will increase, of course. While Jupiter is retrograde we grow more in an inner way and when the 'great benefic' moves forward the growth occurs in a more outward manner in the world. We can take what we have learned and discovered now and project it outward.
FRIDAY APRIL 10, 2015
Friday is liberation day when the Sun aligns with Mercury in freedom-loving Aries and 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!
SATURDAY APRIL 11, 2015
Saturday is the perfect dating day when Venus leaves dependable Taurus and enters flirty Gemini. If you have been thinking about spreading your wings and diversifying your love life, the coming weeks is the time to do it. Gemini Venus is also a good time to diversify money matters. Love and money will be "up in the air" for the next month, so be flexible and in order to take advantage of the airy opportunities.
SUNDAY APRIL 12, 2015
Sunday is planning-for-the-future day when practical-minded Mars forms a powerful and positive sextile aspect with intuitive Neptune to help you formulate goals and take measured steps towards making your dreams become reality.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between April 13 and 19 when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns with his heavenly father Ra-Herakhte for the Aries New Moon which we call the FASCES MOON. The Aries New Moon is the moon of abrupt beginnings which may not be followed through, and of things said which are later regretted, of capricious actions — shoot first, ask questions later. If you have been stalling on starting something new ... now is the time to go for it. Others will warn you that you should exercise caution ... but the Fasces Moon says "no pain, no gain" and urges you to press forward .... More details next time ....
