SEPT. 24 to OCT. 4, 2015
THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 24, 2015
On Thursday casual conversations turn into ugly arguments which can end in tears when lying Libra Mercury squares off against stubborn Capricorn Pluto. Mercury is deceptively smooth-talking in Libra and Pluto is eager to dismantle established structures in Capricorn (which explains what is happening in global finances and politics). Because Mercury is currently Retrograde, this means old crises suddenly boil over again. Mercury square Pluto is an aspect which encourages con men to try to pull a fast one on gullible souls. If you are gullible, then watch out. If you are a con man, then this is your day to shine.
FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 25, 2015
On Friday don't be surprised when "conflicts" dissipate overnight ... when Mars leaves drama-queen Leo and enters caring-and-sharing Virgo starting Tuesday (til 13th November) ... where Mars energizes healing while soothing the heart ... Virgo Mars empowers you to act in a responsible and supportive way to help others ... and yourself! Martian ambition will be channeled into productive avenues from now until November 13th. That means some protracted disputes will seem to resolve themselves almost literally overnight.
SATURDAY/SUNDAY SEPT. 26/27, 2015
This weekend things get intense when Mars forms a 90-degree square right angle to Saturn. It is like driving down a highway with one foot on the brake and the other on the accelerator because Mars wants to press the pedal to the metal, while Saturn wants a cautious, go-slow approach. The result is pent-up frustration which boils over into rage. Open warfare breaks out not only in crisis regions of the world, but also in street traffic, in your work place and in your domestic relationship. Cold-blooded, vengeful wrath strangles out rational thought.
MONDAY SEPTEMBER 28, 2015
On Monday the ARIES FULL MOON reminds you that the calendar may say it is autumn, but you can still sow some wild oats! But be careful: In Antinous Moon Magic we call this the LIGHTNING MOON for the bolt of lightning which nearly killed Hadrian and Antinous atop Mount Cassius in autumn of the year 129 AD. The LIGHTNING MOON is the most impetuous and accident-prone moon of the year.
TUES.-THURS. SEPT. 29-OCT. 1, 2015
On Tuesday through Thursday your brain is ablaze with often confusing and conflicting ideas when Retrograde Mercury aligns with the Sun. Old astrology texts dating back to Ancient Rome call this a potentially hazardous time, and speak of a "Scorched Mercury" which impairs communications and judgment. But in ANTINOUS MOON MAGIC, we see that very differently. This Sun/Mercury conjunction is indeed intense, but in a positive way. Antinous/Mercury focuses the gay spiritual light of his heavenly father Ra-Herakhte right at you. Open your spiritual heart to the light and joy and permit it to burn away all doubt and all fear and trepidation. Most people live in spiritual darkness. They are like people who live in caves and are afraid of sunlight because it hurts their eyes. But should we shun the light and stay in the cave with them? Antinous/Mercury says it's safe to open your spiritual eyes — and spiritual heart — and become accustomed to the light.
FRIDAY OCTOBER 2, 2015
On Friday the work week ends in a flurry of activity when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms positive aspects with Mercury and the Sun, but rather more challenging aspects with Mars, Neptune and Jupiter. You can expect high tension, but in a generally good-natured manner.
SATURDAY OCTOBER 3, 2015
This is a definite party weekend for sure when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD engages in a sexy sextile with impetuous Uranus and also with hot aspects with Mercury, Sun, Mars, Neptune and Jupiter. Invite friends over, move the furniture out of the way, and start dancing.
SUNDAY OCTOBER 4, 2015
On Sunday the Earth will shake and conflicts will rumble around the globe ... and throughout your own household when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is at right angles to the Sun. This is the Cancer Third Quarter Moon, which is the DISCORDIA MOON in Antinous Moon Magic ... The goddess Discordia can be a powerful friend ... or deadly foe. Many gay men have assertiveness problems. On a gay spiritual level, the Discordia Moon shines its light on problem areas where you need to stand up and assert yourself. Anger is one of the most cathartic emotions, and it can also be a very effective cleanser of the emotional system. However, when it becomes a habit, it actually loses its power to transform and becomes an obstacle to growth. Meditations and rituals during the Discordia Moon can help you in identifying the role anger plays in your life and restoring it to its proper function so that it can bring new energy and expansiveness to your emotional life.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between October 5 and 11 when Mars is in opposition to Neptune to spawn fears, worries and paranoiac delusions on the global level. On the personal level, you may experience sexual inadequacy doubts. Don't worry: this will only last a day or so and won't happen again for about two years. The last time Mars and Neptune were in opposition was in October 2013.... More details next time ....
