JUNE 4 to 14 2015
THURSDAY JUNE 4, 2015
On Thursday creativity reigns supreme when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms an inspiring sextile aspect with intuitive Neptune. You can expect ideas to come out of no where and to find solutions to long-stalled problems in the most unexpected places.
FRIDAY JUNE 5, 2015
On Friday Venus, the planet of love, leaves down-home Cancer and struts into show-off Leo, where she remains from now until October 9th (except for two weeks in Virgo in July) thanks to an extended Retrograde phase. This is a chance to put on high heels and strut your stuff and make yourself attractive to others so your popularity soars. When you look good, you feel good so treat yourself to a new outfit or a facial or a haircut or any other pampering session that boosts your self esteem. Old-school astrology texts like to call Leo a Drama Queen. They like to paint planets in the sign of Leo as people with superiority complexes. This happens occasionally, but mostly it doesn't. Leo is the sign of Royalty, and royalty, the kind that stays in power, doesn't lord over others. True royalty is generous, humane and often quietly dignified. Venus in Leo gives you the expressive dignity of a Queen or King, you have creative dominion over an artistic field… and the hearts of others.
SATURDAY/SUNDAY JUNE 6-7, 2015
This is one of the best weekends of the year for partying when over-active Gemini Mars forms a sexy sextile aspect with lively Leo Jupiter even as social-minded Leo Venus forms a productive trine aspect with Sagittarius Saturn. Mars (action) and Jupiter (over-indulgence) are out on the dance floor while Venus and Saturn help you perceive whom you can trust as your designated driver.
MONDAY JUNE 8, 2015
On Monday the work week gets off to a highly fortuitous start when the Sun forms a sextile aspect with lucky Jupiter. Keep your eyes open for opportunities for good fortune.
TUESDAY JUNE 9, 2015
On Tuesday we come to the Pisces Third Quarter Moon, which is what we call the THE LOTUS MOON in Antinous Moon Magic. The LOTUS MOON means the next week will be a time of joyous anticipation of something big which is just beyond the horizon. It is perhaps the most spiritual of all the Lunar Phase Spirits because it knows that its wait will not be in vain. It is waiting for something it knows must and will come to pass. It is a perfect night for casting the Antinous Moon Magic "Lotus Moon Spell" to obtain your heart's desire.
WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY JUNE 10-11, 2015
On Wednesday/Thursday dreams really can come true when the Sun and Mars both form a positive sextile aspect with impulsive, anything-goes Uranus even as Mercury and Venus also form a sexy sextile aspect to one another. These powerful configurations throw open all the doors and windows so that a breath of fresh air comes blowing through your life on all levels ... at work and also in your interpersonal relationships. Uranus throws everything up in the air and opens new possibilites. Meanwhile Mercury gives you just the right words to expression Venusian emotions. Because of RETROGRADE MERCURY, you may be surprised to hear from someone from the past. Mercury went retrograde three weeks ago and is now standing still, turning around to go "Direct" ("forward" as seen from Earth) beginning Friday June 12th.
FRIDAY JUNE 12, 2015
On Friday Mercury ends its three-week Retrograde phase and begins going forward ... ending three weeks of computer glitches, travel delays and lost emails and parcels. But also on Friday, Neptune turns around and begins a long Retrograde phase which will last until November 18, 2015. Retrograde Neptune in intuitive Pisces means there will be an atmosphere of nostalgia and yearning for a return to the "good old days" — which were maybe not all that good to start with. Nostalgia reigns during Retrograde Neptune in Pisces! On the negative side, Retrograde Neptune in Pisces causes addictive behaviour to resurface. But on the positive side, Retrograde Neptune shines a spotlight on the arts and spirituality.
SATURDAY/SUNDAY JUNE 13-14, 2015
Regardless of the weather, it will be a hot weekend for sure when the Sun aligns with Mars in conjunction in lively Gemini. This gives your ego a powerful boost. Unfortunately, it also gives everyone else's ego a powerful boost. This can lead to Gemini's favorite style of heated discussions and fiery arguments. But Sun-conjunction-Mars in Gemini is a powerful tool to empower you to speak your mind and to air grievances and to give voice to something important that you have been meaning to say for a very long time. This is the time to say it.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between June 15 and 21 when we come to the Gemini New Moon — a good time to set a goal for the coming four weeks. And given the presence of Gemini energy, it's an auspicious time to begin gathering the information you will need to set this mission in motion. In Antinous Moon Magic we call the Gemini New Moon the MERCURY/HERMES MOON because the mercurial and seemingly fickle energy of Gemini is in the spotlight during this New Moon period, amping up agitation and nervous energy .... More details next time ....
