JUNE 16th to 26th, 2016
THURSDAY JUNE 16th, 2016
This could be the luckiest week of the year for you when the convivial Gemini Sun firms a fortuitous sextile aspect with winner-takes-all Aries Uranus. Your mind will be brimming with creative ideas and new solutions for stubborn old problems. And because of Retrograde Neptune, be sure to pay attention to inspiration from your dreams!
FRIDAY JUNE 17th, 2016
On Friday, Venus leaves nervous Gemini (where Venus never feels entirely comfortable) and enters cozy Cancer. Venus is very much at home in Cancer, creating a spirit of emotional home-and-hearth sentimentalism. Even if you are the sort of gay person who has never taken the idea of "marriage" and "family" seriously before, don't be surprised if you now think of settling down and setting up housekeeping with that certain special someone. That may mean merely sharing a house or apartment together. Or it may mean planning a gay wedding and possibly even adopting or siring children. For the past month, Gemini Venus expressed love and money through words. Now Cancer Venus will express love and money emotionally.
SATURDAY/SUNDAY JUNE 18th/19th, 2016
This is a weekend full of contradictions when Saturn is at right angles to nebulous Neptune. Sagittarius Saturn encourages you to be fair-minded and just in all your dealings with others. But Retrograde Neptune in dreamy Pisces blurs all the distinctions between right and wrong, left and right and up and down. And because Neptune is Retrograde, you sense a vague nostalgia for the way things used to be and delude yourself into thinking things used to be more just and fair ... when in fact they weren't. On the interpersonal level, this means you tend to misinterpret or overlook the intentions of other people. On the larger level, this means carelessness and miscalculations can lead to accidents with far-reaching ramifications. Drive carefully!
MONDAY/TUESDAY JUNE 20th/21st, 2016
Overnight Monday/Tuesday we come to the SUMMER BLUE MOON of Antinous ... the second Sagittarius Full Moon in succession which coincides this year with the June Solstice. For those of you in the Northern Hemisphere this is the Summer Solstice and the days start getting shorter. For those of you in the Southern Hemisphere this is the Winter Solstice and spring will soon be on the way. Regardless where you are on this blue marble we call Earth, ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD smiles down on your during this Solstice Full moon. Normally, the Sagittarius Full Moon shines forth with riches and joy. But this solstice is a bit more challenging because Mercury is in tense aspects to Saturn and Neptune, both of which are in a severe 90-degree right angle to each other and have been for much of this year. These configurations cast a pall of sadness and frustration over this normally happy Solstice. Remember that negative energies are just that — they are energies. And energies can ge channeled and transformed. You can turn these energies into more positive and constructive avenues. Look up at the big and bright Full Moon and remember that ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD is smiling down at you and all of us with boundless love.
WEDNESDAY-FRIDAY JUNE 22nd-24th, 2016
The stresses of the Full Moon Solstice are intensified when Mercury is in a tight, 90-degree square angle to Jupiter. Beware of online websites that promote gross exaggerations or promises that sound too good to be true — because most likely they aren't true. Or on a whim, you might take on a large assignment on the mistaken belief that you can easily manage it, when in fact it overwhelms you. Moderation and caution are the keywords for Mercury square Jupiter. On the other hand: don't be so cautious that you fail to buy a lottery ticket — because Mercury square Jupiter can sometimes favor the underdog with unexpected good fortune.
SATURDAY/SUNDAY JUNE 25th/26th, 2016
This weekend you'll be glad you bought that lottery ticket when Lady Luck smiles on you. Lucky Jupiter and career-minded Pluto form a trine aspect which is highly conducive for prosperity. This is a good weekend to sit down and update your job applications and send out new ones. Security and self-confidence underpin your dealings this weekend.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between June 27 and July 4th when the gentle and romantic CANCER NEW MOON soothes the tensions of recent days and weeks. In ANTINOUS MOON MAGIC we call this the ADONIS MOON .... More details next time ....
