FEB. 25 - MARCH 13, 2016
THURSDAY FEBRUARY 25, 2016
At mid-week you find exactly the right words for that important email, post or tweet when Aquarius Mercury forms a positive sextile aspect with precise Saturn.
FRIDAY/SATURDAY FEB. 26/27, 2016
Friday night definitely is date night and you may want to break loose and go off alone on some impromptu adventure when Mercury forms a sextile aspect with Uranus. If you are stuck at home with family or people you would rather avoid, this can create intolerable tensions and the desire to walk out and jump in the car and speed away. But if you have the weekend to yourself, this creates the perfect atmosphere for doing something new and different without anyone holding you back.
SUNDAY/MONDAY FEB. 28/29, 2016
On Sunday and Monday the Sun has its annual rendezvous with intuitive Neptune. It is as if a theatrical stage spotlight is fitted with a greenish filter which casts a dreamy light onto the stage which bathes everything in watery pastel greens. This can make it difficult for you to make important decisions. But it can also help you to look deeper into your heart to help you make those decisions on a deeply intuitive basis.
TUESDAY/WEDNESDAY MARCH 1-2, 2016
On Tuesday and Wednesday you will really want to get together with good friends when caring-sharing Venus forms an exceedingly fortuitous sextile aspect with insightful Saturn. We're talking about long-term friends, people you have known and loved the longest — or people with whom you really want to form a long-lasting friendship. And overnight Tuesday/Wednesday ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is at right angles to the Sun. This is the SAGITTARIUS THIRD QUARTER MOON, which we call the SACRED STAR phase in Antinous Moon Magic. In the midst of confusion and chaos, the Spirit of the Star touches the top of your head and conveys sudden and total clarity. This Spirit is never deceived by appearances. Meditations and rituals conducted during this lunar phase are ideal for discerning clarity in opaque situations, for clearing the mind of nebulous distractions and for seeing clearly into other worlds ... the perfect night for clairvoyance.
THURSDAY/FRIDAY MARCH 3-4, 2016
At week's end Venus forms a sexy sextile with impetuous Uranus. You may meet a stranger who ordinarily would not be your type ... but who certainly appeals to you.
SATURDAY MARCH 5, 2016
On Saturday Mercury is at right angles to Mars. Some astrologers say this is when people sharpen their swords, but we prefer to say it is when people sharpen their tongues to use as weapons! Remember that lovely line from "The Importance of Being Earnest" by Oscar Wilde (who is a Saint of Antinous, by the way): "On an occasion of this kind it becomes more than a moral duty to speak one's mind. It becomes a pleasure." This is an aspect which encourages people to say vicious and intentionally hurtful things. People are overly persnickety and bitchy and downright mean. You'll be amazed how true this is. Later Saturday, Mercury leaves logic-ruled Aquarius and plunges into the murky waters of Pisces. For the next three weeks, as Mercury swims through the sign of the fish, your EQ Emotional Quotient will take precedence over your IQ Intelligence Quotient.
SUNDAY MARCH 6, 2016
On Sunday THE YEAR OF MARS 2016 lives up to its name when Mars enters fiery Sagittarius. For the next six weeks, the Martian energy will help you to discover new vistas in your love and sex life. You may even go somewhere you've never been before! This is one of best times of the year to be incredibly open-minded and experimental — just as the Sagittarian energy would have it. Sadge is also a very athletic sign, so you might find that your libido is strong enough that you don’t even need to hit the gym. If you're usually shy about asking your partner for what you want in bed, this is a wonderful opportunity to explore, because he or she is likely to be just as curious as you are. If you or your lover are Fire signs (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) you'll feel this influence even more. Watch out, you could be too hot to handle.
MONDAY MARCH 7, 2016
On Monday the Sun forms a sextile aspect with Pluto which brings you recognition, success and amazing abilities to make your wishes come true, beginning this week with Jovian good fortune.
TUES-WEDNESDAY MARCH 8/9, 2016
On Tuesday the Sun is in direct opposition to Jupiter, causing a sense of over-exuberance, over-exaggeration and over-exertion in all areas. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing ... but the coming weeks will show whether you bit off more than you can handle. Overnight Tuesday/Wednesday we come to a Total Solar Eclipse during the PISCES NEW MOON ... which is visible over Indonesia. In Antinous Moon Magic this is the lunar phase we call the DOG MOON of fidelity, friendship and faithfulness. The Spirit of the Dog Moon is loving and supportive friendship. This Spirit is loving and faithful, comforting you with familiarity when you see yourself reflected in this Spirit. It is the perfect combination of comfort and stimulus to grow and provides a wonderful companion that walks with you through life, helping you define and refine who you are and who you choose to be every day.
THURSDAY-FRIDAY MARCH 10/11, 2016
On Thursday and Friday your mind shifts into visionary mode when Mercury aligns with Neptune in dreamy Pisces. Pay special attention to your dreams ... and that includes day dreams.
SATURDAY-SUNDAY MARCH 12/13, 2016
The weekend is dominated by thoughts of love as romantic Venus edges out of intellectual Aquarius and steps into the deep waters of Pisces.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between March 14 and 20 when we come to the Gemini First Quarter moon ... the lunar phase we call the JACKAL MOON in Antinous Moon Magic. Each Lunar Phase represents a Divine Spirit or Archetype. The Spirit of the Jackal in Antinous oracular arts is the embodiment of cunning and skill and sleight-of-hand and being slightly dodgy and sneaky but also being incredibly adept and learned in the ways of the world. The Gemini First Quarter Moon is the March moon of the Trickster, who taunts and teases, who plays tricks, who leads the soul through dark and treacherous passages ... who is more treacherous than any Underworld foe ... but whose cunning enables him to bring his charges to their goal. Meditations and rituals carried out tonight are best suited for looking beyond the the veil of lies and deceit that others (or we ourselves) throw over our eyes to prevent us from seeing clearly. This is also a very good night for finding canny and cunning solutions to difficult problems ... strategies for out-smarting those who seek to pull the wool over our eyes .... More details next time ....
