Antinous Astrology Forecast

SEPTEMBER 10 to 20, 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). So 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.


On Friday unexpected last-minute assignments pile up on your work desk when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is at right angles to Scorpio Saturn ... possibly resulting in your having to stay late at work.


Overnight Saturday/Sunday a partial Eclipse of the Sun occurs when we come to the Virgo New Moon, which is the lunar phase in Antinous Moon Magic we call the PLOTINA MOON in honor of Emperor Trajan's wife, the Empress Plotina, who lobbied on Hadrian's behalf, ensuring he would be Hadrian's successor ... The Spirit of the Plotina Moon is the Spirit of the Crone, the Wise Woman, the White Witch, the Great Mother Isis ... But "she" is a Spirit Guide who transcends gender — she is the ancient gay wizard in your soul. This Super New Moon signals the beginning of the last third of the calendar year. It is time to start wrapping up your projects for this year ... and making good on those bold and ambitious New Year's Resolutions.


On Monday the work week gets off to a business-like start when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms a productive sextile aspect with Saturn to ensure that everyone rolls up their sleeves and gets to work.


On Monday you might want to take a "mental health day" off from work when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD forms stressful aspects with Pluto and Uranus along with high-energy configurationswith Mercury and Venus. This is a recipe for rage issues which come out of no where and then evaporate as quickly as they appeared. Lots of stress with little to show for it.


On Wednesday you can forget about getting any work done when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD goes VOID OF COURSE for 12 hours for all time zones around the world — causing delays, rescheduling, lost messages and missed opportunities. Remember we always say you should think of ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD as your favorite rock or pop star giving a concert. The VOC MOON is the break between sets. The singer goes back stage for a costume change and psychs themselves up for the next set. Meanwhile, the audience is waiting impatiently out front while video projections and doo-wah girls fill the interlude. That's what a VOID OF COURSE MOON feels like. 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.


On Thursday you should go for the gold when Virgo Jupiter and Pisces Neptune are in 180-degree opposition to each other ... for the first time since the California Gold Rush days of 1849! Key words: Amazing grace. Delusions of grandeur. Dreaming the impossible dream. Mirages sparkling seductive in the desert, unobtainable. Invincible souls and susceptible bodies. Boom or bust, or maybe both. The opposition between Jupiter in Virgo and Neptune in Pisces at 7 degrees of each sign this September (exact on Thursday, September 17, but will be in effect September 12-21) is larger than life and yet shifty, hard to pin down or define. The possibilities are endless, for better and worse.

Note this date: August-October 1849. That was the last time Jupiter was in Virgo opposing Neptune in Pisces. That period offered up a few nuggets of gold we can glean some meaning from. It was a time quite literally awash in gold nuggets galore. The Gold Rush had begun the year before and hit its peak in 1849. California transformed from mostly rural, podunk towns into a booming gold hub in a very small time frame. Jupiterian excess and growth. It was a land of opportunity (Jupiter) for anyone willing to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty (Virgo). The rapidly expanding population came from every corner of the globe (Jupiter), making California into the melting pot (Neptune in Pisces) that it still is.

On the downside, however, are concern here regarding health matters. Neptune in Pisces tends to weaken the physical constitution and can get sloppy with sanitation; Jupiter in Virgo really exaggerates this. It is hard to say if this will play out stronger in individuals charts or on a broader scale, but there is potential for big outbreaks here, so take extra precautions regarding hygiene, environmental safety and the like. Respiratory infection — fluids in the lungs is a Neptune/Pisces thing — might be a particular concern.

Another concern is safety around bodies of water. Rain and storms can take on a life of their own, so pay attention to weather warnings if any are issued and avoid being around water if possible.


On Friday Saturn — the ruler of maturity, growth and challenges — leaves watery Scorpio for fiery Sagittarius, where it will stay for two years — until December 19, 2017. Saturn visits each zodiac sign every 28-30 years, so its arrival heralds a definitive two-to-three year period that reveals where our toughest lessons will be. Actually, Saturn entered Sadge last December, but then slipped backwards into Scorpio last March. Now it is in Sagittarius for good. Saturn’s last tour of Sagittarius was November 1985 until November 1988, so if you were born then, dial back through your personal history. You may see recurring themes, or issues that resurface. Saturn spotlights your "life's work," so stand tall and get cracking on the next round of this soul assignment.

Saturn and Sagittarius are strange bedfellows, because Sagittarius is the sign of optimism and expansion, while Saturn is all about restriction and harsh reality checks. But this blending of opposites could actually strike a healthy balance. Under Saturn’s measured approach, we may see the combustible global politics and uprising settle down again. Saturn can influence leaders, or leadership style, and with philosophical Sagittarius here, we may see some fascinating people rise through the ranks. Of course, as a brash fire-sign, Sagittarius can be rather dogmatic and outspoken, so we might also see a few grandstanding “armchair philosophers” who are more talk than action.

On the personal level, get ready to see major structures in your personal and/or professional life take on a whole, mature new shape. For the past two years, Scorpio Saturn was all about the little details, but now for the next three years you will find yourself focusing on the big picture as Saturn moves through Sagittarius.

Another concern is safety around bodies of water. Rain and storms can take on a life of their own, so pay attention to weather warnings if any are issued and avoid being around water if possible.


On Saturday you morph into Crabby McGrumpypants when ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns in conjunction with Saturn on the cusp of Sagittarius while squaring off against the historic Jupiter/Neptune opposition configuration which began on Thursday. During the course of the day, the Moon moves away from Saturn, enabling you to exit the shadow of grouchiness and assume a party mood for Saturday evening.


Overnight Sunday/Monday we come to the Sagittarius First Quarter Moon, which we call the EQUESTRIAN MOON in Antinous Moon Magic ... the Lunar Phase we associate with spiritual movement and progress, astral travel and astral projection ... On the material level, this Lunar Phase is excellent for making travel plans and for carrying out rituals for a safe journey with bountiful spiritual rewards ... or at least for washing that vehicle of yours.


Another exciting week lies ahead between September 21 and 27 when 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.... More details next time ....
