NOV. 17th to DEC. 4th, 2016
THURS.-FRIDAY NOV. 17th-18th, 2016
The week Mercury squares off against dreamy Neptune. This powerful configuration makes it very difficult to do any practical work in the real world. You should avoid signing contracts or making long-term commitments. However ... this configuration is perfect for dreamscaping. Remember that the Obelisk of Antinous says he sends healing visions to his worshipers as they slumber.
SAT.-SUNDAY NOV. 19th-20th, 2016
The weekend is a great time to take in an art exhibit ... or create art yourself ... when Capricorn Venus is in a creative sextile with Retrograde Pisces Neptune. Trust your intuition on all matters of money and love. And when you go out this weekend, you can expect old-fashioned romance because Retrograde Pisces Neptune loves nostalgia.
MONDAY NOVEMBER 21st, 2016
On Monday we come to the Leo Third Quarter Moon, which is called the BACCHANALIA MOON in Antinous Moon Magic for its gifts of transcendence ... This Lunar Phase reflects those festivals of peering into other worlds and states of being ... a restless time of high-spirited indulgence, sometimes fun, sometimes slightly scary and always capable of unleashing powerful spirits ... On a mundane level, it refers to putting on a disguise and "having a good time". On a spiritual level, it refers to entering an altered state to commune with the divine, thus this Lunar Phase is the best time of the year for trance visions.
TUESDAY NOVEMBER 22nd, 2016
On Tuesday don't believe much of anything you hear when Mercury forms a chatty sextile aspect with Jupiter. Mercury loves to tell tales and Jupiter loves to exaggerate.
WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 23rd, 2016
On Wednesday your brain becomes finely honed to precision thinking when Mercury aligns in perfect conjunction with Saturn in high-spirited Sagittarius. You see clearly and optimistically into any difficult situation.
THURS.-FRIDAY NOV. 24th-25th, 2016
On Thursday ... US Thanksgiving Day ... Libra Jupiter is in a 90-degree square aspect to Capricorn Pluto. Then on Friday Venus joins this unlucky configuration by aligning in conjunction with Pluto and at right angles to Jupiter. This aspect heralds disaster on the global financial markets — a restructuring of the world's economic systems. The arrogance of unbridled growth (Jupiter) will be put into question by thorough and deep-seated structural reordering (Pluto) for the benefit of all humanity, not just for a few. This configuration is warning you — no, ordering you — to reassess your assets. Money and property are transitory things. Reflect on what is truly valuable to you.
SAT.-SUNDAY NOV. 26th-27th, 2016
This weekend, you can expect surprise tidings from the past when Mercury is in a very conducive karmic-healing trine to Retrograde Uranus. Mercury-trine-Uranus always creates optimal energies for breaking down encrusted old structures and for mentally visualizing bold new solutions. Because Uranus Retrograde (going "backwards" as seen from Earth), the emphasis is on the past. Retrograde Uranus opens the portals of Time and Space and Mercury enables you to go through those portals to engage in healing magic involving your own past, or past-life incarnations. Even if you do not work any magic, you can definitely count on receiving a message involving someone or something from the past.
MON.-TUESDAY NOV. 28th-29th, 2016
Overnight Monday-Tuesday ANTINOUS THE MOON GOD aligns in conjunction with his heavenly father Ra-Herakhte for the SAGITTARIUS NEW MOON. In Antinous Moon Magic, this is the lunar phase we call the FORTUNA MOON. This is the classic good luck moon of the astrological year.
WEDNESDAY NOVEMBER 30th, 2016
On Wednesday it's make-up or break-up time when Venus squares off against Uranus. You can be sure that unanticipated upheavals will occur in interpersonal relationships. Misunderstandings and arguments come from no where. This is the sort of day when seemingly stable relationships break up for a minor reason. And at work, you sense that people are conspiring against you. And quite possibly they are.
THURSDAY DECEMBER 1st, 2016
On Thursday you see the world through rose-colored glasses when the Sun is at right angles to Neptune. Sun-square-Neptune is the kind of aspect that occurs when Jack sells the family cow for a handful of "magic" beans. In the fairy tale, of course, the beans turn out to be magic after all. But on this weekend the beans aren't magic at all. If you do holiday shopping, it might be a good idea to watch your emotions and not let yourself be carried away. It might also be a good idea to watch your wallet and not let it be lifted by some pickpocket.
FRIDAY DECEMBER 2nd, 2016
On Friday you may feel like a "noble knight" when Mars forms a trine aspect with the Jupiter. Unfortunately, Mars trine Jupiter many people may become deluded that they are superheroes, using others as kindling to start fires — not always literally often metaphorically. Either way, it is just so they can be seen to be the hero and put it out and destroy the lives of others in the process. Beware of crusaders who urge you to take part in some sacred battle. And beware of demagogues who insist they are fighting a holy war, sacrificing the lives of many innocent men women and children in the name of war or competition for basic/personal needs, just so they look like the hero.
SAT.-SUNDAY DEC. 3rd-4th, 2016
font size= "3">This weekend Mercury gets down to business and moves into Capricorn. From now through New Year's Eve (when Mercury enters Aquarius) you may find it easier to set helpful limits just as the holiday season reaches its peak. This is a mentally grounded energy that can help you understand the trade-off between short-term pain and long-term gain. Mercury in Capricorn is focused on the future and eager to organize a grounded plan for success. Whatever your goals now ... a calm holiday, a strong start to 2017 ... Capricorn Mercury can help you put a plan into place. Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, planet of structure and focus. Mercury has a quicksilver, trickster nature. When in Saturn's sign, Mercury is urged to get organized, so a little effort goes a long way now. Consider the consequences of what you decide, and make sure the costs are truly worth it. A slow-and-steady approach will help you stay calm through the end of the year. Mercury in Capricorn embodies the idea that when you say "no" to one offer, you create space to say "yes" to another. As we move out of the holiday season and into the new year, remember to keep your eye on the prize! Also this weekend, the THE YEAR OF MARS 2016 certainly lives up to its name this weekend when aggressive Mars forms an ambition-filled sextile aspect with Saturn. You will be energized with perseverance and endurance for the long haul.
SNEAK PREVIEW OF NEXT WEEK:
Another exciting week lies ahead between December 5th and 11th when we come to the Pisces First Quarter Moon. In Antinous Moon Magic this is the CONSORTIUM MOON of partnership, commitment and belonging ... it is symbolized by the wedding ring ... Because it always occurs towards the end of the year, the Consortium Moon represents the cyclical nature of the year, the ending of one year and the beginning of a new year ... Tonight is a beneficent night for meditation or rituals concerning relationships and all things that are bound by a circle of togetherness ... In health matters, it refers to blood and the circulatory system ... This is the Lunar phase of the Circle of Life, the inter-connectedness of all things ... More details next time ....
