FEBRUARY 11 to 28, 2016
THURSDAY/FRIDAY FEB. 11/12, 2016
At the end of the week, Uranus and Pluto renew their on-again, off-again square aspect to each other ... a dramatic cosmic configuration which has brought about the "Arab Spring," the Ukraine Crisis, the Ebola panic and other ongoing turmoil for many months now. This 90-degree, right-angle aspect is exact again today to throw open the portals on hatred and enmity. The Earth will shake ... perhaps literally spawning quakes and tremors and tidal waves. On the positive side: You can use this powerful energy to break free of chains that have shackled you for far too long.
SATURDAY FEBRUARY 13, 2016
On Saturday, it's time to take advantage of those Valentine's Day Sales and buy a new smartphone, tablet or other communications device when Mercury re-enters the tech-friendly and communications-conscious sign of Aquarius for the second time in recent weeks after going Retrograde for the past three weeks and slipping "backwards" into Capricorn. This is the best time of year for communications technology upgrades.
SUNDAY/MONDAY FEB. 14/15, 2016
Overnight Sunday, we come to the Taurus First Quarter Moon, the lunar phase of young love which, in Antinous Moon Magic, we call the ANTINOUS AMOR MOON ... this moon is perfect for Valentine's Day! Also: your optimism is only matched by your ambition when Mars forms a sextile aspect with Jupiter. You will feel capable of achieving anything and will want to go for the gold. So go for it!.
TUESDAY/WEDNESDAY FEB. 16/17, 2016
Overnight Tuesday/Wednesday, Venus leaves stodgy Capricorn and enters socially interactive Aquarius, so you may feel an irresistible urge to check your social network even before you get out of bed. The coming month is idea for exploring the vastness of cyberworlds in search of the ultimate interactive relationship. You sense a yearning for new and interesting places, things and friends as Aquarius Venus opens your heart to adventurous new ideas and people. It will be easy for you to overcome your shyness and meet new people. But you may get bored quickly and may have a hard time focusing on any one subject — or person.
THURSDAY to SUNDAY FEB. 18-21, 2016
The last half of this week is unusually quiet from an astrological standpoint as the only major development is the Sun's entrance into Pisces. We have come to the end of the current astrological year. Pisces is the last sign of the zodiac and signals the ending of one cycle as we prepare for a new beginning at the Spring Equinox, when the Sun enters Aries on March 20th. We leave intellectual brilliance behind as we reach to deepen intuition, sensitivity, and mysticism. During this time, we may need more rest than usual to open our hearts and minds to the less obvious side of life. Take time over the coming weeks to pay attention to your dreams, listen to music, and meditate regularly. Seek a deeper understanding and compassion for others.
MONDAY/TUESDAY FEB. 22/23, 2016
Overnight Monday/Tuesday you may find yourself feeling a bit guilty, a bit self-critical, a bit inadequate. That's the Virgo Full Moon ... but in Antinous Moon Magic, this is the DIANA MOON ... the moon of sisterhood, of kindred spirits in whom you can confide ... and a "sister" need not be blood related ... or even female ... you have a "sister" and tonight's full moon helps you find her.
WEDNESDAY/THURSDAY FEB. 24/25, 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 FEBRUARY 28, 2016
On Sunday 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.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between February 29th and March 6th when 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 .... More details next time ....
