APRIL 16 to 26 2015
THURSDAY APRIL 16, 2015
On Thursday look for guidance from an older person in financial and relationship issues ... or offer guidance to a younger person ... when Venus is in opposition to Saturn. This is a time when maturity triumphs over youthful zeal. Sit back and heed the guidance of an old soul ... who can also be a spirit guide. And if you see a younger person blundering into a trap, this is the day to intercede and offer a wise word of advice based on personal experience.
FRIDAY APRIL 17, 2015
On Friday the global political and economic turmoil redoubles when strong-willed Capricorn Pluto turns retrograde — going backwards as seen from the Earth until September 25, 2015. Some financial and political crises we thought had cooled off will begin boiling again. With Pluto in Capricorn, the focus is on who is in control. Major power struggles run rampant. Little countries threaten to upset the global financial system — an adolescent dictator tries to push superpowers around. This happens on the personal level too, of course, and everyone seems to be taunting and bullying you. Retrograde Pluto is a time to cut the anchor chain, drop ballast and set off on a course of your own. And if you can't do that, then just remember that bending your knee before tyrants doesn't mean bending your will to them. Pluto thinks in the long-term. The last time Pluto was in Capricorn was in the late 18th Century — the age of the US and French Revolutions. This time around, Capricorn Pluto is once again revolutionizing global political and economic structures. You can use the next five months to work on furthering your plans for where you want to end up in the new world order that will exist when Pluto leaves Capricorn — in 2023.
SATURDAY APRIL 18, 2015
On Saturday 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.
SUNDAY APRIL 19, 2015
On Sunday Taurus Mars turns into the proverbial bull in a china shop when the war god is in a square-off against exaggeration-prone Jupiter . You might even feel a bit bullish yourself. With Mars in Taurus, we are determined, stubborn, and resolute. Mars in Taurus can be passive, and is at its strongest when resisting or defending something! Jupiter intensifies these energies to the max.
MONDAY APRIL 20, 2015
Early on Monday (2:40 a.m. in LA, about midday in the UK and Europe) the Sun leaves impulsive and quick-witted Aries plods on to the placid, comfy and steady turf of Taurus. The next four weeks offer you a chance to work on maintaining the things you value, cherish and appreciate. Monday is very good for introspection because ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD goes VOID OF COURSE for most of the day. Nothing much will happen during this VOC period — nothing bad, but nothing good either, just nothing. But on the plus side, a VOC is perfect for meditation, dream-scaping and contacting the spirit world.
TUESDAY APRIL 21, 2015
On Tuesday you can count on cosmic help to assert will with your boss when Mars and Pluto form a healthy trine aspect. However ... don't take success for granted because a 90-degree square between Mercury and Jupiter could cause you to squander your chance for good fortune.
WEDNESDAY APRIL 22, 2015
On Wednesday love could waltz into your life when you least expect it when Mercury and Pluto for a trine which enhances your pick-up lines greatly even as love planet Venus is in a sexy sextile with lucky Jupiter. This is one of those rare chances when a romantic encounter can come out of no where ... a chance meeting ... eyes across a crowded room. You must, however, act on this opportunity ... don't let it pass you by. You may be tempted to dream away that chance because ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD goes VOID OF COURSE for most of the day, creating a dream-your-life-away mood.
THURSDAY APRIL 23, 2015
On Thursday communications wizard Mercury aligns in perfect conjunction with war god Mars in firm and solid Taurus, sign of the Bull. This configuration is ideal for giving you convincing arguments for defending your fortress or your territory or just your rented room. If someone is trying to push you out ... Taurus Mercury and Mars will give your voice the eloquence ... and the volume ... you need to make yourself heard.
FRIDAY APRIL 24, 2015
On Friday energy levels get a boost just in time for clubbing time when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms tense aspects with Pluto and Uranus while making positive encounters with Mercury and Mars.
SATURDAY APRIL 25, 2015
On Saturday you can expect the unexpected when we come to the Leo First Quarter Moon. It is the Lunar Phase in Antinous Moon Magic which we call the SCARAB MOON of miracles and wish-fulfillment. Meditations and rituals carried out tonight can result in an unexpected breakthrough. Eureka! Unanticipated solution. Fortuitous surprise. Sudden change for the better. Plucking victory from the jaws of defeat. An oracle reading or meditative trance can produce a sudden answer for transformation of a bad situation into something profitable.
SUNDAY APRIL 26, 2015
On Sunday the effects of the SCARAB MOON of miracles and wish-fulfillment are further enhanced when love planet Venus forms a kissy sextile aspect with surprise-bringer Uranus.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between April 27 and May 3 when 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 .... More details next time ....
